Stampin’ Up! Christmas Idea #1-Simply Snowmen

I’m getting ready to go to St. George, Utah for the Stampin’ Up! Founder’s Circle Trip next week…I can’t wait! I’ll join about 100 of the Top Demonstrators from both US and Canada  for a half week of pampering, stamping and sharing ideas! It’s really NOT a work trip…it’s all about fun! Part of what we do each year is a PJ party where we will have a card swap! I had to make 135 Christmas cards to swap with the other demonstrators! (So, that means I’ll come home to share 135 different and awesome Christmas cards!)

I’ll of course be displaying them all at my Christmas Card Class-if you’re intending on coming, make sure you go register as it’s filling up fast! Find the registration for this class HERE. Please note, if you prepay for this class, you’ll get a free gift…so make sure you go register now!

I got this idea from a RAK I received from Dawn Raspas and just new I had to re-create it with Christmas stamps! I made the cards using 3 different colours schemes because I wanted to use the colours I had on hand and didn’t have enough to make them all the same! Which do you like better? I can’t decide!

Here’s a closeup of the Snowmen

Backing: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
