Glistening Spirited Snowman

You can almost feel the cool breeze blowing in his adorable face as this spirited snowman ice skates in a flurry of snowflakes. This is another fabulous image from the Spirited Snowman stamp set.

The Pool Party panel was stamped using the Snow Is Glistening stamp set. Three of the snowflake images were placed on one block to easily create this snowy background. Don't you just love the snowflake swirl die cut? It's one of my favorite dies included in the Snowfall Thinlits Dies. After watercoloring the snowman using my Aqua Painter I brushed over him with Wink of Stella so he really shimmers like snow in sunshine.

If you love the Snow Is Glistening stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits Dies but don't yet have them, don't hold off any longer...

After tomorrow, November 30th, they will no longer be available. Shop now and don't forget to select me as your demo. For smaller orders that don't reach a hostess level you can use the Hostess Code: JAG97PFA

Have a GREAT day!

Snow is Glistening in the Woodland

Sparkling silver snowflakes adorn this embossed white birch tree background created using new items from the Snowflake Showcase group of products along with one of my old favorites...the Woodland Embossing Folder.

The Snow Is Glistening stamp set has an image that consists of a little group of snowflakes. This was the perfect size to stamp in between the trees after it was embossed. I started with Whisper White card stock and inked my embossing folder with Pool Party ink before running it through my Big Shot to create this background. The snowflakes were die cut using the Snowfall Thinlits Dies. Basic Rhinestones and Silver Edged Satin Ribbon finish off this card which is perfect to send for any occasion during the winter months. 

There are only a few more days left to order these awesome products...get them while you can! 

There are so many fantastic new embossing folders in the annual catalog...including the Woodland Embossing Folder. Today and tomorrow (until midnight)  you can get 10% off all tools - this means embossing folders, punches, dies and more! PLUS all inks...which includes markers, ink pads etc...from the Annual Catalog!

Spirited Half Full Snowmen

The other day as I was cleaning up after a stamping session I wondered if I could get this fun snowman from the Spirited Snowman set to hold a wine glass from the Half Full set. So I had to stop what I was doing and try it out!

As you can worked out just as I had envisioned! I love when that happens! So I had a late night in my studio working on wine drinking snowmen! I went with Merry Merlot, naturally!, as my background layer and stamped it with snowflakes from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. The beautiful snowflake swirl at the bottom was cut from the coordinating Snowfall Thinlits  Dies

The snowmen were stamped and then the arm holding the glass was masked to add the wine glass. After I had my fun little scene stamped I watercolored the image using my Aquapainter

If you love the look of this snowflake set and coordinating dies as much as I do but don't have yours yet...don't forget that these are only available for a limited time only. I honestly really LOVE these, so I highly recommend adding them to your collection. 

Also, starting on Friday Stampin' Up! is offering many items in the catalog at 10% off! Check the SU! Website for more details. Right now, I know that each day for 6 days there will be a different category of products offered from the Annual Catalog. By the end of the 6 days, almost everything in the catalog will have been on sale! 

Day 1 - November 23–24 will be PAPER & EMBELLISHMENTS. So it will be a good day to stock up on card stock, envelopes and ribbon, etc...

As the sentiment says here, the best wines are ones we drink with friends (and /or family!) Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family/and or friends! I am truly thankful for all of you who stop by to visit me here and leave such nice comments. I am especially grateful for those of you who place orders with me. Thanks so much!

Tranquil Snow is Glistening Tree

The tree image in the Snow is Glistening is just beautiful! It's made up of all shapes and sizes of snowflakes and it looks absolutely gorgeous embossed!

Here I have used Silver Embossing Powder on Tranquil Tide cardstock. The Mint Macaron layer is embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder. The snowflakes were die cut using the Snowfall Thinlits and White Velvet cardstock. 

I have been really enjoying using these new products so much! Make sure to get yours while they are still available!

Love Never Melts

I have a weakness for adorable snowmen. So it's no surprise that the Spirited Snowmen set in the Holiday Catalog was at the top of my "must have" list!

All the images in this set are just darling and fun to color, but I think my favorite is this snowman couple, paired with this's just so sweet! The Pool Party layer was stamped with snowflakes from the Snow is Glistening stamp set inked in Coastal Cabana. The die cut snowflakes are cut using the coordinating Snowfall Thinlits. I love how this set of dies contains solid shapes to layer the more intricate snowflakes. 

After watercoloring this cute couple using my Aquapainter and various inks, I brushed over the top of the snowmen using Wink of Stella. This adds such a beautiful snow-like shimmer. 

The Snow is Glistening stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits are available only during the month of November...or while supplies last. These really are fantastic! To avoid disappoint, shop now while they are still available. Everyone who purchases these two items from me will receive a FREE project tutorial from me as an added bonus/thank you.

A Blizzard of Wishes

I finally got my hands on a few of my favorite products from the Snowflake Showcase offering...the beautiful Snow is Glistening stamp set and the fabulous Snowfall Thinlits Dies. This is the first card I've created with these items.

I couldn't wait to cut out that gorgeous large snowflake! It cut perfectly on my first attempt and most all the little bits popped right out...which is helpful! I used the White Velvet Paper to cut from. It adds a nice texture, but honestly unless you are touching it, it really isn't that noticeable. 

I used three of the snowflake stamps from this set placed on one block to easily stamp the beautiful snowflake background. Pool Party card stock and Coastal Cabana ink were used. 

The items featured  as part of the Snowflake Showcase are only available for a short time...while supplies last. (Actually, the White Velvet paper has already sold out.) I just LOVE anything with intricate snowflake designs so I'm glad I was able to add these to my collection to use for years to come. If you purchase these two items from me during this promotion, you will receive a FREE tutorial from me using these products. So, what are you waiting for? Order yours today while they are still available.
