Christmas Blessings

All products from Stampin Up 

I saw this quick card layout on
a YouTube video by Connie Stewart
and really liked it. It was quick and easy using a DP pack and the Christmas 
Pines stamp set. I added their
new red ribbon and metallic 
pine cone. I love CAS, thank you
Connie! I really like the outcome.

All products from Stampin Up 
Christmas Pines stamp and die bundle
Christmas candy dots
except for:
Wink of Stella glitter pen
Glitter spray

I love the winter elegance of this
stamp set. It is generic enough I can
send it to a man as well. It is haed to see, but I  used Wink of Stella on
the bow and Noel, so after taking
the photo I also sprayed it with
glitter. Hope you all had a blessed

Seasons Greetings

Cardstock from my stash 
DP from Stampin Up 
White Stag stamp set from Amuse
Inktense colored pencils 
Bling from Amuse and Stampin Up 

I have loved this stamp set from
Amuse since I first saw it. I
tried using a stamping off technique
on this card and like the results.
It is hard to see, but I fussy cut
the deer and popped it up.
I tried color blending with pencils
too, which was fun.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Star of Light

Cardstock from the Paper Cut (Ice
Silver and Stardream Metallic)
Stampin Up Star of Light stamp and
Die set 
White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal Drops

I absolutely love this stamp and die set 
from Stampin Up. It makes me feel very 
spiritual and at peace. 
I wanted to try an inlay technique I
have seen on YouTube, and I 
wanted it to sparkle. I also love 
the Nuvo Drops and they were 
the perfect touch.

Christmas  Dazzles from Hot Off The Press 
Joy embellishment is Tim Holtz 
Everything else is from Stampin Up 

It's that time of year again when
I get to enjoy making all my 
Christmas cards.  This 1st one
is for my boss. I tried to keep it 
kind of generic because she is in
Pittsburgh, I'm new to her team, and 
I don't know her very well yet.
It took me a while to think what 
I wanted to do, but after that 
it was easy peasy.
I like the way it turned out and 
hope she likes it too.
