Snowy cards

Well I'm happy that Halloween is over because now we get to focus on Christmas! It's my favourite holiday because I get to put out all my snowmen! I love to decorate! I don't want to put out anything TOO early though because then it may snow....don't need or want that!
I was digging through my stamp drawers this morning looking to see if I had any chalk inks and came across this Inkadinkado snowman...isn't he cute?! I picked him up at a little store in New Smyrna Beach, Florida last February.
Supplies Used:
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Choc Chip, Watercolour Paper and BG Dp
Inks: Timber Brown Stazon and Various Earth Elements Markers
Accessories: Aqua Painter, 2 way glue and Dazzling Diamonds, Misc Choc Sation Ribbon,Dimensionals
I was so excited yesterday when my Stamping Bellas arrived! I REALLY wanted this SnowBunnyBella! She's perfect for sending out cards through the LONG winter season we have here! I left sentiments off both cards for now, until I want to use them.
In the first card, I used Liquid Applique and some Dazzling Diamonds on top. I had forgotten I owned this stuff too. Think it's been retired from SU! for a couple of years but I still have some...bonus!

Supplies Used:
Stamp: SnowBunnyBella
Cardstock: Cool Caribbean, Sahara Sand, WW Basic Grey DP
Inks: Black Stazon, Cool Caribbean, Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Liquid Applique, Dazzling Diamonds
In the summer I had gotten tons of Fun Flock and had only used it once. I thought the blue fun flock went really well with the Cool Caribbean!
Supplies Used:
Stamp: SnowBunnyBella
Cardstock: Cool Caribbean, So Saffron, WW and Petals and Paisley DP
Inks: Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink, Cool Caribbean, Blush Blossom
Accessories: 2 way glue pen, Fun Flock, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals
