Snowflakes are coming!

Well I know it is that time of year, and this morning we had a few flakes on the ground what a great way to start the Christmas shopping season! So I made a card that the snow inspired. I love our new Stampin' Up shimmer paint. You can paint with it, you can stamp with it and it is so pretty when it dries. I have here to views because depending on the angle the simmer paint really pops!

Buid a bear

I have been busy getting ready for a craft show in two weeks. This is one of the projects I am making. I think she needs a slip LOL! But Gotta Love her coordinating purse.

My Downline Marilyn came to play one afternoon and brought the set in OOOOOh I said can I pretty please use the set! She of course obliged and we had a wonderful afternoon. This is the card I made with it. Thanks for sharing Marilyn!

Now if you are interested in how I made the flower pot it is sooo simple punch out a ornament shape from our new ornament punch using Elegant Eggplant card stock. Cut the bottom point off to create the vase bottom. to create depth Use a dauber with Elegant Eggplant ink to create a shadow on the edges.

Simply sent card kits are a great way to get started. because the include every thing you need to make a card from the ink to the ribbon! the card above was made with the paper and ink…
