Remember When We Actually Had Snow?

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Jolly Jingle Bits and Word Play stamps and the 1
This has been the weirdest winter! Really, who can remember when its been January in Wisconsin with NO SNOW! I've been designing all my January event cards in the (apparently mistaken) belief that this was winter. I remember when we had 3 feet of snow on the ground and the snow plows had piled it up even higher along the roads.

The good thing is that the roads are safer.
The bad thing is that we can't enjoy our winter sports.

The images on this card are from a set called Jolly Bingo Bits. All the tiny images in this set are intended to fit into the grid of our Bingo Card Stamp. Click the image to the left to see this set larger

Its a bigger problem with smaller stamps. It happens because we rock the stamp and the larger stamps are more stable.

Here's how to avoid the problem - ink the stamp with a marker! Then you can control where the ink goes and ensure there is none on the edge. And the bonus here is that by using markers I could color the snowman's scarf a different color. Pretty tricky!

Do you like the Postage Stamp look of this card?  It was really easy to do with the 1" square punch and our Postage Stamp punch.
