Silent Night

Nina solar white cardstock, 
Gold cardstock by Stampin Up,
Gifts of Gold with Foil paper stack
 by the paper studio,
Woodland stamp set by Stampin Up,
Liquid applique and embossing powder 
from my stash.

I am in love with both the Woodland stamp set, 
and this gold foil paper.
I love the elegant look of this card.
I have been busy making Christmas cards 
for work, family, and friends.
I love this time of year, and can't wait 
to start sending my cards.

Ornament Card

Red cardstock from my stash,
Neenah white cardstock,
Hot off the press Dazzles Mix Em's
ornament stickers and line Dazzles.

I love how this card came out.
The Mix Em Dazzles were so fun 
and easy to use. Made a quick, and pretty 
Christmas card. I popped it up with pop dots
to give it some dimension. 
I can't wait to mail it out.

Winter Wishes


Neena and Bazzil cardstocks, Happy Scenes stamp set from
Stampin Up, Hearth and Home Framelits dies from
Stampin Up, Sizzix  brick embossing folder, Tim Holtz
Holiday Words Script, Wooden snowflakes from
Stampin Up, bling from my stash, Wink of Stella,
and Liquid Applique.
I love making Christmas cards! This stamp set and die from
Stampin Up has been on my list of really wanting to
use stamps for a while now.
I love cards using the window effect, and I really like how
this turned out. Using the applique made the snow look
more real, and the Wink of Stella added just the
right touch. I will probably be giving this to a
coworker at Christmas time.

Holiday Bows

Holiday Bows and Couture Clear stamp sets from
The Ton, Amuse and Neenah card stock,
sequins from Amuse, bling from my stash,
ribbon from my stash, and Wink of Stella pen.
I absolutely love the Holiday Bow set from The Ton!
I saw this set used on Catherine Pooler's YouTube video.
I partially CASED her design.
I couldn't wait to use it, and boy when I did,
did I find out how much practice it took. It is a 2 step
stamp and I have difficulty lining those up
even using my Stamp a ma Jig.
I am very pleased with the outcome though once
I finally got a little better at it.
I hope the recipient will get as much pleasure out
