Update Tuesday, Snowman Season - November 26, 2019


EEEK!  I am so excited for you to see today's Update Tuesday Photo from Stampin' UP!  These little snowmen are my favorite!  The Let It Snow suite of products is such a fun group to use.  You can make these adorable cards easily!  This photo below is the photo that was shared via email this morning from Stampin' UP!®.  I'm always excited to see what new inspiration they will share with us and today was no exception.  Aren't these cards the cutest!

And as usual, it was hard for me to decide which one to focus on.  But in the end I decided to focus on the card on the left.  I like to fussy cut and this card has some fussy cutting!  Plus I haven't used my embossing paste in a while and I was eager to use the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. 

Here is what my card looks like.  

Could this little snowman be any cuter?!  I think not!  I just put him to the test and showed this card to my 2 year old great-nephew via FaceTime and it was a big hit!  LOL!  This card has the 2 year old seal of approval!  And that folks is all I need!  

Look at the detail of this Shimmery White Embossing Paste?!  I love this paste!  I have a feeling I will be using a lot more of it before I finish my Christmas cards.  

Here is the sentiment I chose to  put on the inside!  It's a good thing I stamped and photographed this card before I did my Live video on Facebook a few minutes ago.  Because right now I cannot find the block and photopolymer stamp that I used.  LOL.  ha ha ha.  It doesn't get much more real than that!

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!
