Buffalo Check Dashing Deer

I absolutely love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I thought pairing it with the Dashing Deer bundle would be great.  I love how this card came out.  I even used the beautiful deer die on the inside.

OnStage Gifts

Right now I’m in Orlando, FL attending OnStage!  It’s the 30th anniversary of Stampin’ Up! so I decided to head to the BIG convention (normally I only go to the one day local ones I can drive to).  I’m not going to be alone; there are 40 others from Susan’s Stampfield Stars group attending too not to mention the almost 10,000 demonstrators that I don’t know yet!

I decided to make treats for everyone in the group.  Shh, don’t tell them, it’s a secret.  😉  This is what I came up with based on the container of leftover snowflakes from my Beautiful Blizzard projects.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Beautiful Blizzard

For my first one, I just put the mint patties in the cellophane bag but it’s much easier to do it with the little Shaded Spruce liner.  The liner is 2″ x 6″ and scored 1/4″ from each edge.  The link to where I got the idea for the liner is lost somewhere on Pinterest.

I even used the new Snowfall Thinlits on one.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 15

This was actually the first project I created when I got the Beautiful Blizzard bundle.  The problem with that was that I figured out the dimensions as I made it and didn’t use adhesive sheets so you can see all the dots of glue.  😦  It does look really cute when it’s lit at night though.  Needless to say, that is a battery powered candle and not a real one, that would be dangerous.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 13

This was my daughters favorite card and one of mine too.  I just love the color combination.  I’m almost exactly CASE’d it from TatianaCreative.com.au.  Her card was just so beautiful.  Now I just need to create a scrapbook page to put the SNOW on.  🙂

Highland Heather and Pool Party were stamped off before stamping on the card front for the snowflakes, Balmy Blue was stamped full strength.
