Having Fun with "Snow Much Fun"!

Two of the Workshop Projects- Gift Card Holder on the left  
Hi Stampers! 
Finally, I am able to post a few projects! :-)   
I have been busy this past week with designing projects and preparing for a beginner's workshop focusing on a few simple cards/projects. 
The hostess is a dear friend of mine that loves all of the cute stamps that Stampin’ Up! has to offer along with the Big Shot and the participants were all beginner stampers (including three teen girls- we had a great time and left with Dazzling Diamonds on our faces :-)). 
Project #3
Since my style tends to be more vintage and shabby, I was struggling with "cute" and thought that the little guys in Snow Much Fun would be perfect!  

After browsing Splitcoast Stamper's gallery and a few of my favorite weekly challenge blogs, I was able to be inspired late the night before the workshop (talk about procrastination:-)).    Also, the colors were based on last week's  The Paper Player's PP68 Challenge - since I took so long to determine the final projects, I could not finish them in time for the deadline on their challenge but wanted to share them with you  :-)
NOTE-  To punch out the snowman with the hat peeking out of the circle on the Gift Card Holder, stamp the image, color and then carefully cut out the hat along the top and down the sides only (to the rim).  Gently fold the hat down towards the snowman, then punch out with the 1 ½” Circle Punch and fold the hat back in place- quick and easy!

Another sample (not part of the workshop)
All of these items were simple to make using the Big Shot and various embossing folders, die cuts, punches, watercolor pencils and of course, "bling"!
