Snowflakes are Falling

In keeping with my New Year's resolution I actually made some Christmas cards. I used the stamp set "Winter is Calling" for these cards. The stamp set was only available in the 2003 Winter Mini Catalog and fortunately my sister owns the set so I was able to borrow it to create these cards. I made 4 of the same card I just changed the colors.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Winter is Calling
Paper: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Soft Sky, Soft Sky DSP
Ink: Black, Various SU Markers
Accessories: Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities Dies, Petals a Plenty or Snow Burst Embossing Folders, Frost White Shimmer Mist, White Flock, 2-Way Glue Pen, Glitter Pen, Mini Glue Dots, Ribbon, Dimensionals

Pink Passion with Only Orange

Normally I wouldn't consider putting pink passion and only orange together on a card but I found this DSP called Sassy and those were the colors so I went with it. I'm still utilizing some of the items that I still have but have long been discontinued but I did pair it with a more recent stamp set.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Punched Posies, Best Dad Ever, Sweet Spot
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Sassy DSP
Ink: Pink Passion, Only Orange
Accessories: 1/2" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Dimensionals
