"Merry" Little Snowman....

I have a couple cards to share with you this afternoon. I'm getting ready for a weekend of stampin' and scrapin' with 30+ gals this Friday-Sunday. I'm sooooooooooo excited as it will be fun seeing old faces again and making new friends. Food included with your stay, lots of snacks to share (notice I go right for the food first!) 2 gals per room and we have our own bath. Large table to work on. I'll take a few photo's and show you next week... :)

On these two cards I used similar cardstock and DP. I changed the lay outs, had to use my new Cuttlebug Ice Crystal die for my last card. I love that snowflake die LOTS.... On my first card I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder. On the folder I inked it up and then embossed to give more depth to the embossing. Now I can't take credit for this technique, and I don't remember the Blog that I found it on. So if it's you let me know and I will link to you!!
Close up photo of the embossing, Stickles, ribbon, etc.

This is my 2nd card! Very simple and I added Rub-on's for the Happy New Year! Stickles applied to the center of my SU! felt Flurries.... :)

Enjoy the day stamping friends... I'll be popping back in on Sunday! Stamp and Smile....

Michelle, these cards are AWESOME! ... so many added touches that work so well together! Your use of the word window punch in the first card especially caught my eye ... very clever!

What wonderful cards! I love the snowman on your first card and the snowflake on the second is just awesome. I really like the DP and all of the other detail in support of your images. Really pretty!
