Snow Much Fun swap

What a blast we had at our all-day demonstrator Stamp Fest this past weekend!  It may be a bit early to think about Christmas cards, but this darling little fellow from Snow Much Fun stamp set was just too fun to pass up!  We each brought a "shoebox swap" – a box containing all of the pieces to make a card to share.  This is the card I designed.  I began by stamping Mr. Snowman in Early Espresso Classic Ink, then coloring bits of him in with my Stampin' Pastels.  The same ink was used with a Stampin' Sponge around the outside edges.  Not Quite Navy card stock was run through the Big Shot with our new Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for some added interest.  Victoria Crochet Trim is held in place with an Antique Brad, and the greeting from Tiny Tags is punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch, along with a couple from Not Quite Navy and Cajun Craze card stocks.  Well Worn Designer Series Paper began the color scheme and I used a strip of it along the bottom.  While this paper seemed a good Fall and masculine choice, I saw "Christmas" from the get go!

I'll be posting many of the other 19 cards I made at our Stamp Fest.  There were so many beautiful designs!  Stay tuned!

Tall Tales and Animal Stories

I know I promised you scrapbook pages this month, and what do I do?  Yet another card!  I was getting ready for our Heartfelt Stampers once a month Team Time tomorrow night, and I was really in the card-making zone!  Do you remember when this stamp set Animal Stories and coordinating Tall Tales Designer Series Paper came out, and that's all you saw everyone using?  Well, my 3-year-old grandson wanted to make a card yesterday, and this is his "go to" stamp set.  It happened to be still on my crafting table, and I haven't used the designer paper in months, so here we go!

We sure do go in waves with what we use to craft with, don't we?  I hope I can stop using the new Square Lattice Impressions Embossing Folder for great backgrounds sometime in the future!  Right now, I grab it for every single card!  My color scheme is taken from the designer paper — So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Rose Red and Brilliant Blue.  I stamped the giraffe from Animal Stories in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and mounted it with Dimensionals.  The little "4 you" sentiment is from Tiny Tags and is stamped in Rose Red Classic Ink, punched out with the 3/4" Circle Punch and backed with the 1" Circle Punch with Old Olive card stock then slipped underneath the main image.  I used my new Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack from the Summer Mini Catalog to create the three tiny flowers and added Gold Brads to the centers of each.
