Art impressions Snowman Card Keeper

I ADORE snowmen...and this one is no exception! Art impressions has come up with a really clever way to give gift cards this holiday season. Actually, there is a Card Keeper stamp for many occasions... i just happen to love snowmen and with the upcoming holiday season... this is the one I am showing off! I added the gift tag to the snowman's hand but cutting a slit in his mitten between the finger and the thumb and it slid right in there. This was a quick and easy way to dress up gift cards and I know that my special occasions will taken care of easily with these fun and easy stamps!

Paper Pretties Blog Hop...Inspiration: Halloween!!!

Welcome to the blog hop! If you came here from Amber's Blog... you are in the right place... if not... please start at the Paper Pretties blog so you wont miss anything.
This is a darling new stamp from Paper Pretties... I love getting boy stamps because I have the most precious little boy and I forget how darling boy stamps can be. I colored this little guy with copic markers and I added him to this piece of patterned paper that reminded me of school doodles. I added glittery star punches and here is my creation! It was hard for me to do Halloween with this guy... but I Imagined it being my sweet little guy dressed as a basket ball player!LOL how is that for using your noodle? The next stop on the hop is Jennifer ... thanks for stopping in!!!

Paper Pretties Preview Day!!!

How cute is this little guy? He is from the new release from Paper Pretties!
The paper in the background really created a nice home for my Gnome and I added the grass (made from a punch) and the mushrooms...also part of this set... to his environment.I also added liquid applique to his eyebrows and beard and puffed them up!
He is of course colored in with copics and as cute as a button!
