Snowman Club challenge card

Hi Everyone,

This is a layout challenge set by Dorset Stampers.

It was good to see all the different ideas people came up with from the same layout.

I had trouble fitting the sketch onto a C6 card so instead I used an A5 card.

I used blue bayou cs and inkpad from SU and shimmery white cs from PDA.

The snowman and snowflake and flourish stamp are from SU and the words are hero arts.The gem is also from SU

SU have now opened in the UK and their catalogue is available to view online go to and click on the uk flag and go from there.....if you like anything you see in the catalogue you can order from my very great friend Jenny who can be contacted at or go to her blog the link is on the left of my blog.

Point about Criss cross cards

Hello everyone !!
Thanks for the lovely comments about the criss cross card...they are really easy to make but I thought I should just add a comment about the paper.....
Most cards I saw on SCS used double sided paper.....

The first paper I was using had the words Let it Snow written all over so I cut the 4 x 5 piece then cut it in half diagonally....bottom left piece fitted fine onto the main right however didnt !!! it was upside down AND back to front.... LOL.....I checked all measurements etc.....all ok.....then realised about the DS paper. either use DS paper, or 2 pieces of co-ordinating paper, or if you want the same paper both sides of the crisscross then you will need 2 pieces of the same paper....
Just thought I would share that with you all to save you the trouble...

Oh well live and learn as they say.....

First Criss Cross card

I have wanted to make one of these cards ever since I saw them on SCS and today as it was raining I thought why here it is.
I thought they were quite easy to make, it took longer to choose paper and cardstock and colours etc.
The snow blossom punchies I received in a swap and it has made me DESIRE the set of stamps even more !!!!

Bella card

This is the card I made for my *bella* sistah......Charlene.....she likes pinks,greens and browns.

I am in a swap with a group I belong to where we make cards and send little gifts over a 2 month period to *spoil* our bella sister.

This is the second card I have sent I forgot to snap the first one I was so excited to get it postal !!!

I used the same colour as on Beates card and then used my cuttlebug alphabet to cut out the words BELLA and then glittered them....I also used zoomz baubles as I dont have bella ones...!!
