Vellum Snowflake

My Up line hosted a Shoebox swap earlier this month and this is the card I had prepped for us to make. The Drink and be Merry stamp actually says Eat, Drink and be Merry but we used a sticky note to cover the "eat," part of the stamp since it would not fit into the circle. To adhere the vellum to the card we used Tear & Tape Adhesive behind the circles and a Mini Glue Dot behind the Rhinestones. That way you don't see the adhesive thru the vellum!

Stamps: Merry Little Labels
Colours: Basic Black, Tranquil Tide, Smokey Slate, Real Red foil sheet, Vellum
Accessories: Layering Circles thinlits, Silver Mini Sequin Trim, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Folder, Merry Little Christmas designer series paper, Rhinestone jewels

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More!

 I'm not looking forward to the snow coming again but I do love taking pictures of how pretty it makes everything! The above layout is about our first snowfall in our new house and how it changed how everything looked.

The snowflake stickers are from the Memories & More card pack. It's awesome that there are embellishments as well as 3"x4" and 4"x6" cards!

Tis the Season for Christmas cards!

Here are 2 cards I designed to showcase the Merry Patterns stamp set for a demonstrator meeting earlier this month. I created the same card twice but the second card is a stepped up version. On the above card the sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and then Cherry Cobbler Ink.

The sentiment on the second card is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in gold. As an additional embellishment the punched image of holly and berries was added. After making the second card I noticed that the cards looked different since the designer series paper around the edge is more white than black. Both were cut from the same sheet but different sides. It's strange!

Stamps: Merry Patterns
Colours: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Basic Black
Accessories: Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, Holly & Berries punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink

Merry Little Dear

Have to say that I'm in love with the deer from the Merry Patterns stamp set! And how well it pairs with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. The deer was fussy cut and the mini dimensionals to lift it.
