Stitched Snowman #1 and #2

The next set in my "use my Stampin' Up! stamps" project is this set called "Stitched Snowman." There is a greeting that I didn't use. (It says, "Christmas is caring, loving and sharing.")

For this first one, I stamped the snowman, then used a second stamp from the set to stamp the snowflake background. I colored with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white and mounted on foam squares.
 I used the third stamp for this second card, making a border with it. Again, I colored with Copics. I scored a couple lines on each side and matted with green. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. I'm linking these up to the Christmas Card Challenge blog. The optional challenge is a color combination this time, but the main challenge is to make a Christmas card.

The sets that are left of the stack that I'm working on now are all tag sets - four of them. I have to decide if I'm going to make over 25 cards with tags on them, or just make the tags and put them in my "card parts." I'm thinking I wouldn't like to just use tags for so long!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
