Rubons and a Snowman

Happy weekend all!! I have some fun, quick cards to show you today. The first uses rubons only. I really need to use them up, because I have too many hanging around. I can't remember where I read they can get old after a while, and I'm not sure if that is true or not. Do you know? Anyhow...I'm going to try and use some of them up.

I love the classic look of a black & white card. I used the wonderful Pure Luxury 120 lb. white card stock as my base, and it gives such a nice richness to it. It's my very favorite white base card stock now! The ribbon is from A Muse (love it!!).


Stamps: none
Card Stock: Pure Luxury 120 lb. (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: none
Accessories: Cherished Memories & Eastern Elegance rubons (SU), A Muse sheer ribbon


Stamps: Heart Warmers (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Card Stock: Kitchen Blue 4 Bar Notes (A Muse), Neenah Natural White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers, Red Spica glitter pen
Accessories: Quickie Glue pen & Dazzling Diamonds, A Muse sheer ribbon, Scotch foam tape


I'm a true lover of all snowman, and this one from the Kim Hughes Collection at Cornish Heritage Farm is definitely one of my favorites! He is stamped and mounted with dimensional tape. The card base is an A Muse note card, and I love how this one works for a wintry scene. My snowy hill was cut with my Creative Memories 12-inch Decorative Trimmer, and I added the sparkly snowtop with my Quickie Glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds. I used more A Muse sheer ribbon here as well!!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Adorable snowman card! I love him, too! I like how you added the glitter to your "hill". I also like your rub-on card. I have no idea if they get old or not. I hope not! I guess I'd better get mine used up, too!
