I am sorry I have been quiet lately. The weekend was really busy. Yesterday I didn’t get done doing chores until about 3 p.m. Then the kids came home and Rebecca and I hung out outside with our neighbors. Rebecca loves the little toddler they had. It was a great day….but I didn’t get to stamp.

After not having stamped for a while, it’s always hard for me to get creative. Good thing I had new rubber laying around!!!

Asela Hopkins created this adorable stamps. You can find them at Cornish Heritage. Not having had new rubber fix from Stampin’ Up! for a while, I was excited to play with these cute stamps.


The card base is a sponged 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Blue Bayou cardstock.

Next is a 4″ square of Wintergreen Designer Paper that was paper pierced around the edges.

The snowman family was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock with Black Palette ink.

I colored them in with Aqua Painter and Classic inks (Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Going Gray).

I ran through the image through my Cuttlebug and cut it with Nestabilities dies into a scalloped square. It was layered on an Artichoke scallop square.

I then added glitter to the snowflakes and the snow on the floor with Star Dust Stickles.

I stamped the saying in Black Palette ink on Shimmery white and punched it out with the Key Tag punch. I layered it on a sponged piece of Blue Bayou cardstock and cut around it with scallop scissors.

I punched out two snowflakes with the Snow Blossom punch out of Acetate, added Star Dust Stickles on one and sandwiched the other on top of it. After that dried I added it to the saying with a Ice Circle Rhinestone brads.
