Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

This is one of my all time favorite snowman stamps in my collection.  It's made by Penny Black.
  I have used it many times to make holiday cards over the years and normally color it in shades of blue or green or purple.
 I wanted something a bit different, so this time I used shades of pink with a kraft cardstock base.

 Supplies used: Copic markers, Spellbinders dies, MS drippy goo punch, Simple Stories cardstock, pearls, white ribbon, twine, tag and pop dots.

You're Out Of This World

A friend let me play with some of her stamps.  This stamp set has a moon, spaceship, alien and sayings.  I stamped the scene with Memento ink and colored the images with Copic markers.  Also used Bazzill cardstock and pop dots to attach the image to the card base.  The Sketch layout is from Splitcoast Stampers, which I had to change a bit so the dots would fit at the bottom of the card.  I always struggle when making cards for boys, but I think the little boys at the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity will enjoy these fun aliens.

Converting dingbats to cut files

I spent an hour this afternoon experimenting with my Silhouette Cameo.  I follow Jin Yong and my card was inspired by the tutorial she posted on her blog  (Under A Cherry Tree) today.  It's a wonderful tutorial that shows you step by step how to convert a dingbat to a cut file.  I followed all the steps to create the cut file, then I made another offset, mirrored left, overlapped, aligned and cut out my black card base.  I also cut a extra black piece to put on the card base so the part where the shapes overlapped on the left wouldn't look cut off.  I will be sending this to the Cards for Hospitalized Kids charity.  I hope it will make the little kids smile.
