I wanted to share two cards I made with the Close to My Heart set "Snow Friends" today. The little snowmen in this set are so cute, and I decided I wanted to paper piece their little hats. So I stamped them onto patterned paper, cut out the hat, and then glued it to my main stamped image. When doing this I didn't stamp the whole snowman, in fact I used scraps for their hats. You can't see the dimension as well as I would like in the pictures, but they turned out REALLY CUTE!

On a side note, I LOVE my Palette Inks! They are a hybrid ink, which gives you the look of a pigment and the dry time of a dye. You will see me using these a lot on my cards and scrapbook pages because they are my ink of choice.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day, I am off to go shopping with my Mother-in-law. She needs fabric for window treatments, I am just the driver - but I am sure a stop at Michael's and JoAnn's are in my future!!! Now go CREATE SOMETHING!
