Build me a snowman and Something old challenges

I am enjoying entering crafting challenges so thankfully my blog title still works. I created my own stamp placement tool. It is a dvd case that will allow you to restamp the same image over and over in the same place until it is fully inked. So a lot of my cards will feature stamps in the next little while. Here is a snowman that I am entering in fresh brewed designs build me a snowman challenge. Here is my card:
Isn't she a-dork-able. I love the sweet motherly type snow woman referencing the Game of Thrones.

I made another card for Beccy's Place Something old Challenge. This is a stamp that my mother-in-law gave me. He is quite a cute frog. I had a lot of trouble on this card. First I didn't put tacky spray on the grid so the page kept moving in the stamp placer. But I got that fixed but then I realized that the paper I used smudged. And then I got black ink all over the place. I learned from my wonderful sister that the best crafters take an error and make it a feature. So the smudges became glitter snow. The poorly cut banner had some washi tape added to it and the frog got redone on another paper and stuck on top of the smudged frog.
All in all, I am learning lots about stamping. I only have one stamp pad but I guess in time I will get more. I enjoy the short time frame needed to make cards.
