I just love Asela’s little Snow family and had to use it again. When I made the first card, I had stamped several images and ran them with different Nestabilities die cuts through my Cuttlebug. They were staring at me wanting to be used!

I love these dies. They are easy and I can get  scalloped rectangles, squares, ovals and circles in so many sizes! What a great idea to invent dies for that instead of different size punches. I think I will sell my Marvy punches, if anyone wants them.

I can’t wait for Stampin’ Up!’s new catalog. I  need new images. I have been playing with the same images since July for the main catalog and August from the mini! That’s simply too long! How sad am I to get bored so quickly?


The card base is a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Always Artichoke cardstock.

It was folded in half and the corners on the right side were punched with the corner rounder.

The next layer was a 4 1/2″ x 4 5/8″ piece of sponged Blue Bayou with the right corners rounded, followed by a 1/4″ smaller Wintergreen Designer paper  piece, that was corner rounded and paper pierced.

The last two background layers were cut with rectangle Nestabilities die. The sponged Blue Bayou layer measures 3 1/8″ x 3 1/2″, the Always Artichoke Prints Designer paper layer is cut with the next smaller die. I adhered them together and tied black polka dotted May Arts ribbon to the left hand side of it.

The Snow family image was cut with an oval Nestabilities die and layered on the next bigger scallop oval in basic black.

I colored the image with Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray, Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke and Pumpkin Pie Classic inks and my Aqua Painter. Amuse Creative Candy stickers were added over the snowflakes.

The saying was stamped in Black Palette ink on a metal edged circle tag and layered on a black punchout made with the scallop circle punch.

  4. Cute card! Let me know if you decide to sell the punches – I don’t have any scalloped one but the SU circle. I might be interested. Thanks for sharing such fun card. Our weathermen are predicting we might get some snow (lake effect) on Tuesday. I’m SO not wanting to hear that!
