The Inaugural Post

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Dylanbug's first post.  Since I'm in holiday card mode - getting ready for Hip Happening on November 7th - I've decided to post some of the cards I've made so far.  A couple today and more in the days to follow.

Just a warning, I'm posting just to show people things, and I'm not always that great about writing down the "recipe" as I'm making things.  So many things I use have come from discount bins, or are scraps from my DP stash.  I am completely addicted to paper as you'll find out soon enough!

This little guy is part of a set that I made.  There are three different snowmen.  He's a rub-on that I found in the glass crafting area of Michael's.  The sentiment stamp came from the $1 bin at Craft Warehouse - I borrowed it from my mom, so I'm not sure of the company.  The DP is also from Michael's, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot to look at the vendor before I cut it up!

The colors on this one are really neat, the brown and aqua are not your typical holiday scheme, which I like.

Next up, some really neat gift tags.  I looked high and low for a holly punch and couldn't find one anywhere.  Then I stopped by my favorite local art store - Collage - and what do you know, they had a nifty punch by McGill.

I used my StampinUp! scalloped oval punch with some Target $1 striped DP, then punched the holly.  I backed it with oval-punched forest green CS from Michael's.  I topped it off with some Christmas Red Stickles for the berries.  Very easy!
