Snow and Snowman

This card is made with the Jumbo "Snow" Wheel from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Collection 2007. I used the Hunter Green ink cartridge on the white cardstock. I also used the Stampin' Up! Wintergreen Designer Series Paper at the top of the card. The set I used is "Merry and Bright" in the Holiday Mini Collection 2007. I was inspired by another demo, Gwen Mangelson, to make this card, but she used a different stamp set. Unfortunately, the Hunter Green ribbon is retired but I really liked it best with this card. The Holiday Mini ends today and I think it's been of my favorite minis.

BB Games

This time of year I like to make a lot of homemade, holiday gifts to share with my friends and family, so I thought this would be fun and easy to make. Vickie Maduzia, a very talented stamper shared this idea with a group of us. This is made with a little party favor tin and some BB's and the rest is all Stampin' Up! products. This little BB game would make a nice little stocking stuffer. Or, it could be used as a magnet for the refrigerator.

Tag Punch Starburst Card

Hi Stampers,

I learned how to make a starburst over the weekend. Although I've only made the one, I think I am now addicted and can't wait to make some more. The original instructions on how to make them using the SU! Tag Punches came from Shadow Mill on SCS. Blue is my favorite color and I bought the Brilliant Blue Designer Series Paper this month, so decided to make my starburst blue and white. I think this could also be made into an ornament to put on a tree besides adding it to a card.
