Stamping - for real!

As promised, here are a couple of the projects I have stamped recently.  This first card will be my swap for the SU! Louisville Regional event I will be attending on the 29th.  This uses Pear Pizazz cardstock as the base, with Cherry Cobbler as the layer, along with Whisper White.  The Builder Stocking punch was used on the stockings stamped with the fun Stitched Stocking stamp set, which were stamped in Pear Pizazz as well.  Then I punched our red and silver glimmer paper to make the sparkly toes, heels and cuffs on the stockings.  The sentiment is from Well Penned Holidays.  I also used the evergreen branch from the Christmas Lodge stamp set.  This is a really quick card to assemble and I think it looks very dramatic!

This last card was a Stamp Club project using Night of Navy cardstock and ink and the fun Merry Winter.  Don't you just love these cute marshmallow-ey snowmen?

This fold is called a Z fold and is nice for a change.  You would cut your cardstock the long way, then score at the 5.5" line then again at the 2.75" line.  Make sure you don't add adhesive all over the back side of your focal point piece, just to one half!  Then, when you open it, the inside sentiment becomes visible...too fun!  I also added a bit of Stampin' Detail (our new glitter glue) to the snowmen's mufflers for a bit of sparkly.

Okay, so that is a taste of what I have been up to.  I'll post the other two cards tomorrow.  Later....
