It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas?

Well, not really... but I must say that summer is almost over in Hilo- there's been a lot of rain and not that much sunshine considering its the middle of summer! Anyway, I'm gearing up for my upcoming Christmas card class, which I started last year about this time. We had a lot of fun making simple Christmas cards and projects that I decided to do it again this year. Plus, my regular students were all asking me when it was going to start up again and I can't let them down! Here's a card that I don't think we'll do in class, but I thought I'd share it anyway. A bunch of new Hero Arts holiday stamps arrived at Island Scrapbooking and I couldn't wait to start playing with them. I must admit it was a nice break from Sister Stamping. The green came out different from what I visualized, but I like how it came out anyway. This snowman just called to me, so I added him on as the focal point. Here's a close up of Mr. Snowman. Doesn't he look so happy? He made me happy- can't wait for the holidays now! I will share another card that will be in the class soon. Ta ta for now! Supplies:
  • Snowman- Hero Arts
  • Dot background- Hero Arts
  • Border and corner punches- Martha Stewart
  • Distress Inks- Ranger

LOL, are making me nervous about the holidays already! Maybe one day I'll get started early too. Your snowman card is CUTE! Really like how you've done the dotted background. I have this background stamp, but can never get it to stamp as crisp and cleanas yours looks. Is there a secret technique?
