Snowman Jar

Snowman jar side view Snowman jar top Snowman jarToday I have another jar for you!  This time I wrapped a strip of our Season of Style paper around the jar with a piece of 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Gumball Green.  The ornament on the front is from a set in the Holiday Catalog called Christmas Collectibles punched out with the Christmas Ornament Punch.  If you purchase these two products together, you save 15%! I love that Stampin’ Up! has so many bundles like this available. I really blinged (I don’t think that is a word) up the top of my jar with Silver Glimmer paper and lots of rhinestones. I love all of the sparkling lights at this time of year so I think this top fits right in!

As I mentioned yesterday, I would love for you to email me a picture of your own jar creation!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Snowman #2

Snowman 2Yesterday I mentioned that I would show another version of my snowman card.  Instead of cutting him out, I stamped him directly onto my cardstock.  Which one do you like better?

Who doesn’t love a snowman??  This cute little guy is from the set Snow Day in the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped his body using Smoky Slate.  I inked the stamp up, stamped it on my grid paper and then stamped it on my Whisper White paper.  I did this because I felt that the color was just a bit too dark going immediately onto the paper.  An extra added bonus was that I could practice placing his eyes, mouth, etc. on my grid paper first!  I also used the Expressions Thinlits Die to make the word Merry (yesterday I used the set for the word Thankful).  I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and paper from the Season of Style DSP Paper Stack.  I cut my snowman out and used dimensionals to mount him on a piece of Whisper White that I ran through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Another option, if you don’t want to cut the snowman out, is to stamp him directly onto a piece of paper that has not been embossed.  I will post one tomorrow so you can see the difference.

I hope this inspires you to get into your stamping space today and make something!
