I've been stamping ALL day!

Today I went to a friend's house and we stamped all day long! I got there around lunch time and I didn't get home until 6:30. She is making Christmas cards with two snowmen on them. She just got married this summer so she wanted to do a wedding snowman couple on the card. They really turned out cute! We were so sick of snowmen when we finished that we were delirious! We were coming up with some silly snowmen cards to make for different holidays! We were laughing so hard that I told her I thought we needed to stop for a while! I also finished all my Christmas cards. I decided to do the clear snowflake cards I posted earlier. They turned out so great! I got some white Stazon and I was tickled with how quickly that ink dried on the transparencies! They will be going in the mail Monday.

Today was the first time I have had a chance to play with my new stamps. I had looked at SCS and found a few cards that I wanted to CASE. Here is the first one. The original was posted by coribravo. I used Big Pieces, Little Pieces, and Happy Everything. The colors used were burgundy, mellow moss, and apricot appeal. I love this card and I will using this card soon!

I also picked up some of the snowman paper from Basic Grey today! I just love that paper. I stuck it in a clear mug from the Dollar Tree. I plan to make a snowman soup packet for my room mother. She is always doing great things for my class and I wanted to give her a little something for Christmas. I'm not sure if I'm going to stamp something to go inside or if I will just stamp a tag and some other things to go with it.

While shopping I also ran across the EK punch you see here. I have gotten most of my punches from SU but I just love this one so I got it! It was a little different from the other punches I have because the punched out piece doesn't come flying out of the bottom.
