Blushing Snowman Thanks - Stampin' Up! Snowman Season

   Any reason to stamp is a good reason in my book and even more so lately when the need for cards for various occasions just happens to coincide with all the new products that just came out in the Stampin' Up! 2022 January-June mini catalog!  I love playing with my new stamps and dies and it's even more fun when you can pull out an old favorite and pair it up with a new product for a bit of new life.

  I didn't use the Snowman Season at all this past Christmas season.  I used it the last 2 years and I didn't want someone on my card list to end up with a card that looked the same as one they received previously.  I decided to hold off on snowmen until it was time to make Christmas thank you cards.  I used the TGIF Challenges current color combination as inspiration for this one.


  This card ended up using a mix of retired, old current and brand new products.  For the retired items I used the Whimsy & Wonder DSP for my shot of Blushing Bride in the background.  The top layer of the die cut thanks and the banner are Be Dazzling specialty paper which was a SAB reward the last time. The Blushing Bride twine and candy dot are both retired embellishments.

  Older but still current items used on this card are of course the already mentioned Snowman Season stamp set, Stitched So Sweetly dies for the scalloped rectangle and the snowflake is die cut with the So Many Snowflakes die set.

  Now the new item on this card is the really fun Amazing Thanks die set.  The 'thanks' piece cut beautifully even through the thicker Be Dazzling paper and since it's a wider style of font it's not impossible to glue the layers or add mini dimensionals to.  Check it out on page 40 of the mini catalog.  You might overlook but it has some great potential for mixing and matching with other sentiments.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
