Make a Mitten

I have had a lot of fun with the mitten punch.  And what is better than having a themed punch?  Having a themed punch with a stamp set to go with it!!  I have not played with it enough though. I have too many other items to play with so I don't get to spend much time on them all.  In the new year I will be scaling back my buying so I can have more time to play with the stuff I have and a little bit of new stuff.  My poor workroom is about to burst at the seams.  If that is at all possible.  I do need to start pulling retired sets off my shelves and start selling them to make room for newer ones.  Plus I'd like to get one shelf cleared off so I can put the clear mount stamps on it, keeping them all in one place.  I have grandiose dreams for my workroom but no time to tend to it.  Maybe after the holidays.  

I don't know if any of you have this problem with your folder but when I make the snowflakes my paper tends to buckle.  My card yesterday was not as bad because I ran it through the Big Shot only to the edge of the side snowflakes and then I backed it up and ran it through on the top until I was just past that snowflake. It was a bit better but not 100%.  Is there a secret to getting this made with no buckling of my card stock?

Ok, so back to my super easy card.  I used 1/2 sheet of Cherry Cobbler for the base of the card.  I stamped the mittens using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I punched them out and set them in place using Dimensionals.  The card yesterday is much like this one but this one has some dimension to it.  Quick.  Easy and fun too!  Other than having someone else make it for you, what else can you ask for?  LOL

Have fun stamping and I thank you for stopping by,
