Welcome to the 
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**

Today, I'm using a couple of brand new stamps.
First, Snowflake Kisses

 (click on the photo to add to your shopping cart)

In preparing my card, I decided to include a few step-out
photos for you :)

 A 2" circle punch works just wonderfully for cutting out your
finished snowflake.  I distressed the edges with a walnut ink.

 Layer onto your card with foam dots.
Patterned papers by Echo Park Paper
Flat adhesive pearls by Queen & Co.
Pointy Border Punch by Fiskars.

Next up is the most gorgeously detailed stamp from the upcoming

Patterned papers and embellishments by My Mind's Eye.
