12 Weeks of Christmas Week 10 - Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Snowman

Hello Stamper's

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy here.

Growing up in  Minnesota most of us looked forward to the first snowfall to make a snowman.  Our granddaughter Alayna is the one who patiently waits for snow.  This year we had the perfect snow a few weeks ago with just under a foot of wet snow falling.  School was cancelled so Alayna spent the day with us.  

First Snowfall

Grandpa and her spent the afternoon outside shoveling and making a snowman.  I watched while I stamped from my nice cozy stamp room.

Jolly Friends Stamp Set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits by Stampin' Up! Border Buddies 2

It seemed only fitting to make a holiday card using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to create a Snowman.  The Jolly Friends stamp set with coordinating Jolly Hat Builder Punch were the perfect choices to create a stocking hat and scarf for our little fella.

The awesome thing is these three items are currently on-sale as part of our Year-End Closeout.

The background paper is from the This Christmas Designer Paper featured in the Annual Catalog.  I ran Soft Sky Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  And the snowman was made by cutting out the circles in three sizes from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and Whisper White Cardstock using the Big Shot and the Precision Plate.

The colors for today's project are...

Just in CASE - Merry Mice Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Thursday's Just in CASE Series...

CASE = COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING.  

Each week I pick out a card from the catalog and either copy it exactly or change up the stamp set or colors or maybe even both. When CASEing if you go too far, you are then creating your very own card and have just been inspired by the card or project you started to CASE. 

The More you CASE the more you learn to be creative so there is nothing wrong with CASEing!

Just in Case Merry Mice stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com -horz

Today's card I cased from page 110 of the Annual Catalog.  I substituted the Every Occasions stamp set for the Merry Mice stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  I realize I used this stamp set last week - but it really is one of my fav this Holiday Catalog.

Just in CASE Series - Merry Mice stamp sety by Stampin' Up!

The card base was made with the Stampin' Up! Emerald Envy cardstock.  Our paper is a high-quality cardstock.  It is ultra smooth surface which is ideal for stamping which gives yu a clean crisp image.   It is dyed with pure color all the way through so there's no white core.  It is also Acid free & Lignin free so the perfect choice for scrap booking.

The embossed background was made using the Big Shot and the Holly embossing folder which is the perfect touch for your Holiday cards.

The fun fold for this card is called a Shadow Box.  It is super easy to make and can fit in a regular medium sized envelope. I used the sail boat from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set and created a port hole with the layering circles.  I placed 2 5/8" smooth circle on a piece of 3 1/4" X 3 1/4" Early Espresso Cardstock and then placed the 2 1/8" smooth circle inside the 2 5/8".  I then ran it through the big shot to create the frame.

Sketches are open to interpretation.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.
