There is Snowbody Better & More

There is was a nip in the air this morning which means we are getting closer to our first frost in North Georgia, in comes the plants. And that bit of cooler air makes me think the holidays aren’t far behind, which makes me think snow. I don’t know about you but the first fall of snow makes us all want to go out an build a snowman. How about you? So today I thought I’d share some fun cards made with the Snowbody Better stamp set (156446).

I love it’s quirky fond and fun sayings too. Here are a couple of cards made with this fun stamp set. This first card uses the fun Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper (156329) as a kick off to it’s non traditional color pallet.

Stampin’ Blends were used to color the image and texture was added to the background with the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder (155433) the sentiment adds a bit more texture with the Double Oval Punch (154242) which is a perfect size for many of these sentiments. This next card has a soft color pallet also.

The Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) adds a bit of interest and the Basic Rhinestone Jewels (144220) a bit of shimmer and shine.

Want a more traditional look for your snowy friends? Why not check out the Snow Wonder stamp set (153344) and it’s coordinating Snow Time Dies set (153564)?

Here are a few cards made with this set for you. This first one is done in our In Color Fresh Freesia for a soft wintery feel.

Or how about this fun fold that has been dry embossed using the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing folder (152718) to create some wonderful texture. This card uses another of our fun In Colors, Misty Moonlight.

And this last card uses the fun So Many Snowflakes Dies (153560) for a fun cut out look.

So what do you think? Two great options for our holiday crafting needs, right? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which snowmen appeal to you?

Stocking Builder Punch

Can you believe Christmas is tomorrow? I’m still putting finishing touches on gift items that I have stamped for family and friends. I got side tracked playing with my new preorder items for the Occasions Mini that goes live January 4th. Want an Occasions Mini Catalog and haven’t received one yet because your not on my mailing list? Click HERE to get your copy or email me at jakmerck@windstream with your Name, Address, and Phone Number and I’ll be happy to put you on my list.

I recently got this beautiful card from one of my team members, Cindy. It showcases our Stocking Builder Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Did you know that you can only get the Stocking Builder Punch while supplies last? Stampin Up! has announced they will not be carrying over this punch into our Idea Book & Catalog next summer. So if you’ve had your eye on it – don’t delay and get yours before it’s gone.

Stocking Builder Punch

And here is a little gift I received from Cindy. Isn’t it too cute?

Snowman Soup

The little box behind the snowman made with our Top Note Die holds three cocoa packets. I thought it was clever the way she used our 1×8 Cello Bags from the Holiday Mini Catalog to hold the marshmallows for each packet of hot chocolate. And can you guess which punch she made the carrot with? It’s the Petite Pennant Punch, isn’t that clever?
