Very Merry


Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

When I was making my card sample last week for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, I whipped up this little cutie using the sketch. I have been making a few Christmas card lately and I knew that the long panel on the sketch would be perfect for this tall fellow from the Stampin Up "Snow Much Fun"!
Isn't he the cutest snowman?
I also used some of the new Stampin Up DSP, this is from the "Be of Good Cheer"!
I love this fun new paper!
The base of my square card is Cherry Cobbler card stock, I followed that with some Confetti Cream card stock and then of course the DSP.
I stamped the tall snowman onto some more Confetti Cream card stock and colored him with my aqua painter and ink pads.
The sentiment on here is from the retired "Short & Sweet" stamp set.
You see that green flag piece sticking out? It is one of the new in colors called "Gumball Green". I embossed that with the square lattice EF, of course!
The snow flakes at the bottom are from the retired Northern Flurries die strip.
The little snowflakes at the top right are from a tiny non SU punch.
I added a few rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes.
I hope you like it, I think it turned out super cute. 

I am waiting patiently for my new goodies to arrive. A few more days!
I have to confess and please don't shoot me, I was less that impressed wtih the new catalog, don't get me wrong, there is still so much I want, but there was not alot of my style stamps in the catalog, so I am hanging my hopes on some things I will just LOVE in the Holiday mini. Haven't received that yet, we demos can preorder from it in July so I am looking forward.
Well, that it all from me today, I am heading to my stamp table to work on some cards I need to get done.
I hope you have some stamping time today!
Thanks for stopping by and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Awesome card as always, Vicki! This is one of my very favorite stamp sets, especially since I'm a snowman junkie! Thanks for sharing.

Fanastic card, Vicki! I, too, was not as impressed as in previous years. Sometimes I wish they retired the whole kit and kaboodle and start fresh! Oh my....my pocket book wouldn't be able to afford it though....lol

My goodies take a week to get to me so they'll be here by end of day Monday :(
