Stampin’ Up! Let It Snow
Today, my card is all about the background. It almost looks like one of Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers, but it’s not. I used rubber cement. Yes, the kind from the office supply store.
I started by dropping the rubber cement with a toothpick onto a piece of Whisper White card stock (measuring 5 x 3 ¾ inches). I wanted to make it look like snow. I then let this piece dry thoroughly. For me, that was overnight.
I then used Stampin’ Up!’s Sponge Brayers to layer on Balmy Blue ink. I kept rolling until I got the desired darkness. Then, with a paper towel, I rubbed the rubber cement off of the card stock. I would call this an emboss-resist technique.
For the rest of the card, I used the Snowman Builder Punch to punch out a snowman from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. (I love that some of the images can be punched directly from the Designer Series Paper.) I topped him with a hat punched from the Black Foil Sheets (and arms, too). The “snow” is a piece of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper die cut with a piece from In the Woods. It’s layered on Basic Black and Balmy Blue.

Each box contains a stamp set, a Stampin’ Ink Spot, adhesive and the card stock. (In your first box, you receive an acrylic block on which to mount stamps from your kit.)
There are several ways to subscribe. You can purchase a one-, three-, six-, or twelve-month subscription. Links to purchase those are below. With this option, you do pay shipping on the initial order.
You can log into Paper Pumpkin and choose to get a month-to-month subscription. It’s just $22 each month + tax (shipping is included). Here is my directly link to subscribe. https://www.paperpumpkin.com/en-us/sign-up/?demoid=2078804
The October and November kits offer coordination for your holiday crafting. The October kit contains 10 greeting cards, and the November kit offers 24 gift tags. The kits complement each other, but can also stand alone. Be sure to subscribe by October 10 to receive this month’s kit.

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season
I’m sure I’ve said this before: I love so many things in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog. I started playing with the Snowman Season Bundle, and I’m hooked. The stamp set has a coordinating Snowman Builder Punch and really fun Designer Series Paper — Let It Snow.
The Snowman on this card was punched directly from the Designer Series Paper. I included a hat punched from Black Foil and a background with the Real Red Glimmer Paper. You can also punch a hat design directly from the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.
Order the punch and the stamp set together and receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle. Also, through September 30, I’m offering free shipping on all orders more than $30. Order directly from my online store at kimquade.stampinup.net or contact me directly to place your order. When you order online, I’ll send you a check to reimburse for your shipping costs. This is a great opportunity to get a few of the items on your wish list.
