Made In Minutes Let It Snow Card


Hello Friends,

"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow", wow, I have the Let It Snow song by Dean Martin stuck in my head.  This morning I woke up to big beautiful snowflakes!  I know that just saying that makes some people cringe, but I love snow especially after a weekend of turkey and stuffing, family fun, Christmas Trees, and Christmas music.  We had it all. This morning's snow is just the icing on the cake.  So naturally, today's Make It In Minutes Monday Card is a Let It Snow Card stamped with  Snowman Season stamps.


Snowman Season Stampin' Up!

Psst! Snowmen Are Some of the Easiest Things to Color!

Seriously, snowmen are mostly white so what's left to color?  Answer:  Very Little

So even though today's card involves coloring, it so minimal that it still fits in the Make It In Minutes Card Category.  Plus, there are so many different ways that you could color this adorable snowman from the Snowman Season Stamp Set. Let the card supplies you have on hand determine how you will color him.

  1. Have a set of watercolor pencils?  Color him with watercolor pencils.  See page 144 of your 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 
  2. Still new to the whole card making scene and you only own a few ink pads?  No problem.  Dip a Stampin' Blend (102845) into your into your ink pad to pick up a bit of color to add to your snowman.
  3. Or, try coloring his little details with a pack of Stampin' Write Markers (page 144 of your 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog
  4. If you are lucky enough to own some of the Stampin' Blends, color away with your blends.
  5. Bonus Tip!  Make your snowman sparkle.  Brush him with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897)

Curvy Celebrations Learning From My Mistakes

Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  After a little trial and error, I was able to knock out a stack of the Curvy Celebration cards in no time.  The Curvy Celebrations Bundle is an early release bundle that will be available in the upcoming January -June 2021 Catalog.  The little birdhouse was actually made using a house die from the Home Together dies from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Learning From My Mistakes Curvy Dies 

First Mistake-For the first card that I made, I used the curvy die to cut the card base.  Then I tried to cut the designer paper with the same die hoping that it would match my first curve.  Silly me!  That did not work out so well, but I did learn something.

For this particular card design, it is much better to cut the curve on the designer paper first.

After cutting the curves on the designer paper adhere to the card base as shown.  That's when I made my second mistake.  Let's just say that I wouldn't recommend using glue to adhere the designer paper to the card base. Cutting machines work with pressure and pressure causes the glue to ooze out.  I felt like I was in kindergarten all over again. Use tape!

To make the second cut simply line up the die along the curve of the first cut on the designer paper.  That was so much easier!
