Punch Pals

I haven't used Stampin' Up!'s Punch Pals set in a LONG time…it is still in the catalog, and I think it is one of the cutest snowman!  It really is a great set for punches, too.  I seem to use the scallop circle stamp at lot on baked goods that I give away at Christmas time!


Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch today (TSSC151) was perfect for the snowman!


For my card, I started with a base of Real Red cardstock, then layered on Baja Breeze cardstock.  I choose the glitter dot from Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper (sorry, it is now sold out…I hope you got a package!) and layered it on Real Red for a nice contrast.  For the ribbon, I did a little scrunch treatment on one end that I showed a couple months ago!  I think it is fun and adds just a little texture!



The snowman from Punch Pals is stamped with Black Stazon.  I used the Baja Breeze, Garden Green, Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers and my AquaPainter to color him in.  I added a little extra layer of white "snow" at the bottom and sponged it with Baja Breeze ink.  I stamped a few snowflakes in the background from the same set with Baja Breeze ink.  I layered the Whisper White on Real Red, then popped it up on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.


Finally, I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to ink up Let it Snow from the same set (along with one snowflake on the left).  Then punched it with the Word Window Punch.  I added a small Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the snowflake for a little bling!  For added sparkle, I used my Two Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds along the edge of the snowline and along one edge of his body!  FUN!


Really, it is a pretty simple card to make in mass quantities!  It's not too late to order your Christmas Card supplies!  Email me today!

Another great card!  The glitter on your stamped image is just perfect with the sparkle of the DSP!
