Peace On Earth Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you the second reason why I had to have the Snowflake Showcase …

If you’re looking for something a little different and that will take that ordinary “snowflake” up a notch, then you too will “melt” over this combination. Yesterday (and the day before) I shared cards that featured the big so today I want to bring back the tree, and the die that turned my head.

WOW … this pretty card was done in the new Soft Seafoam and white – simple. Do you see the “swoosh” of snowflakes? That is one cut with this die … I love this unique shape! I cut this from Vellumn cardstock so you get a soft look.

Each snowflake was highlighted with a rhinestone gem except the large one which I used the snowflake trinket.

This simple yet pretty card could be done in any color and the snowflake swoosh is the centerpiece of the card.  This stamp set and die are only available for a few more days, and then it will be gone.

I hope you enjoyed todays card, I will be back tomorrow featuring the second stamp set in the Snowflake Showcase.

Thanks for dropping in …

Enjoy your day.

Guest Stamper: Margrethe Hooper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend, got your shopping done or started and maybe a few decorations hung. I worked extra hours, enjoyed an nice Thanksgiving dinner and had some well needed downtime and for all of it, I am grateful.

Today I have a beautiful card to share with you that was created by my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator; Margrethe Larsen Hooper. We found each other on-line … Pinterest to be exact, and Stampin’ Up! has made us sisters!

We finally got to meet in person a few weeks ago at the 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! OnStage event and it was so much fun to hang out together!

Margrethe’s card was made using the Snowflake Showcase which I will be featuring all week long. This beautiful product suite is only available through then end of November, and when I saw Margrethe’s gorgeous card, I asked if she would allow me to share it on my blog …

I really can’t resist this snowflake … it is so beautiful, and Margrethe’s color combinations and designer paper really bring it to life. The Linen thread and the Subtle textured embossing folder gives the card an organic feel, while the pretty Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle added a touch of elegance.

I hope you enjoyed Margrethe’s card as much as I did… such a beautiful combination of color and textures and it truly highlights the Snowflake Showcase products.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will continue sharing cards from this product suite.

Have a marvelous Monday!!

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

Two for Tuesday: Carols of Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Tuesday to you! Today I have double the “Carols of Christmas” from the Merry Little Christmas Product Suite, one of which is the winner from our 2017 Holiday Stampin’ Retreat.

Let’s start with the card that I cased from Dawn Olchefske (a fellow demonstrator who does beautiful cards). I was drawn to Dawn’s card right away by the beautiful simplicity of the card …

The “Merry Little Christmas” Designer Series paper is the backdrop to this card. The focal point is created by cutting the trees from the “Card Front Builder” Thinlits Dies out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper … the deer in black to coordinate with the rest of the card.

Next, I’d like to share with you the Winner of our Attendee Swap at our Holiday Retreat this year … Guest Stamper: Cindy P.

Our retreat attendee’s vote for the swap cards they like best and the winner receives a Gift Certificate from me to do a little extra Christmas Shopping from the catalog.

Cindy used the “Carols of Christmas” bundle from our Holiday Catalog … stunning! I love the Night of Navy tree’s behind the Silver Glimmer trees, it appears as a shadow and really makes the silver pop!

If you can’t get enough of the Merry Little Christmas product suite which includes the Carols of Christmas bundle … head on over to my website to see more samples! CLICK HERE TO VIEW

Thank you for stopping by today, hope your day is double the fun!

 

 

Two for Tuesday: Star of Light / Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared my card from the Brightly Lit Christmas bundle, and said my greeting came from the Star of Light Stamp set … Today, I have 2 beautiful cards to share with you from our Holiday Stamping Retreat!

Both of these cards were created using the Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight thinlets, and were done by two of our retreat attendees!!

Our first card was created by our first guest stamper: Peggy…

I love the simplicity of this card, the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper really does create the “Star of Wonder”.

In addition to the stamp set and dies, Peggy used the Gently Falling Embossing Folder to add some texture to the card … it’s just so pretty.

My second guest stamper is Kathie …

Kathie’s card was created in what we call the “Z-Fold” card. This gives your card a real wow factor but it’s Kathie’s placement of her stamping and die cuts that bring out the real beauty of the card.

Kathie also used the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper.

Both of these cards are totally different and showcase the elegance and beauty of this Stamp Set: Star of Light. Don’t forget the Starlight Framelit Dies … Simply beautiful!!

I thank you for joining me today and hope these beautiful cards have inspired your holiday card making.

Have a bright, beautiful day ~

Warmth of the Season

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hearts Come Home for Christmas bundle … one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog.  You’ve seen the video, you saw Kris’s swap and now I have one of our Retreat cards to share with you.

My color pallet was simple; Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Silver…

I also used Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper to create the snow effect. The silver glimmer paper was used behind the houses and in our snowflake.

The ink coordinates (Cherry Cobbler) with our designer paper … and the greeting comes from the stamp set that is included in our bundle.

Simple layout with stunning results!  Stop back tomorrow and see what I’ve done with this bundle… it will really shake things up!

Till then …

Have an awesome day!

Guest Stamper: KRIS H.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share another one of the cards that my Retreat Attendee’s made for their swap. I’m so glad that I did not have to vote, because these cards were awesome.

My guest stamper today is Kris H. She used the “Hearts Come Home” bundle and teamed it with the “Hearth and Home” dies! Clever … right!!

I love the look of this card and the warmth of the season that it that it illuminates.

I think I’ll have to pull out my Hearth and Home die and create a few of these myself.  Can you image using the Santa stamp from the “Hearts Come Home” stamp set and having him soaring through the sky while looking out your window!

The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog today.

Have a warm and wonderful day ~
