Snow day...of sorts

Hey stampers!  Well, we are supposed to get ice today (which we are and got some last night too) and up to 18 inches of snow or something crazy like that.  Needless to say, I don't think there will be any sports or practices after school today since it was canceled.  So unlike a real snow day, I had to take a day of vacation to keep my hours correct....oh well...not going to complain about a day off to stamp which I plan on doing after lunch!!!!  But first, I wanted to share a couple of projects with you.  I have a card and a treat holder that we made at my Sale-A-Bration Celebration class on Saturday.  You're going to be sad you missed it!  :-)  Here is the first card and I made it using a lot of SAB freebies! It would be really fun for a kids birthday! The stamp set is called Punch Bunch and it's so fun, it matches a lot of our punches and I just HAD to use the owl and owl punch!  Also notice I punched out his belly from the DSP as well.  I also used the DSP, ribbons, and buttons you can get for FREE!  The sentiment is also a SAB set!  And don't you just LOVE that fun pink pom pom trim!!!!

Stamps:  Punch Bunch (SAB), So Happy for You (SAB), Medallion
Paper:  Old olive, mambo melon, daffodil delight, whisper white, Ice Cream Parlor DSP (SAB)
Ink:  Pacific point, old olive
Accessories:  XL scallop punch, 3/4" circle punch, pom pom trim, owl punch, paper piercer and mat pack, Ice cream parlor ribbon and button pack (SAB)

And one other sweet treat for you!  We also made this treat holder using the new Petal Cone Die which is fabulous!  I wanted to keep this one simple so it's all about the cute die!  It's super easy to cut out and put together, you just need two strips of sticky strip and boom, it's done!  The scallops are also included in the die.  You could omit them and then the top will close up nice and cute.  I used my crop-a-dile to punch holes and put some ribbon in so it can hang!  The sentiment is from the level two hostess set in the mini and The pearls are the perfect touch!

Stamps:  I {heart} hearts, Something To Celebrate (hostess)
Paper:  Pretty in pink, pink pirouette
Ink:  Rose red
Accessories:  Petal cone die, full heart punch, heart trio punch, pearls, sticky strip, crop-a-dile, very vanilla seam binding.

Hope you enjoyed today's post!  And happy snow day if you have one!
