Glitter Everywhere!

I am officially covered in glitter, head to toe!  Tis the season, right??!!  Well,we have been working on our inside decorations as it is a little bit icy outside.  Our Christmas tree is decked out in red and white this year.  We added a church that lights up.  Check it out:

I decided to keep with the red and white theme, so here's a little tag I made that would be perfect to add to a present or a goody bag.  I started with a red Christmas paper for the background and added a red glittered frame.  The ice skates were stamped, cut out and then glittered with white and silver for the blades.  Did you know that Two Paper Divas also sells sequins?  I added a few of their silver sequins to the tag as well.  The sentiment "Snowy Greetings" is from their set "Warm Winter Wishes."  To complete my tag, I added white pom pom ribbon to the bottom and white crinkled seam binding to the top along with some silver twine and a couple shiny red jingle bells.

Sure hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your family!

Make it a great day!

Christmas and Poinsettias

I was really wanting to use one of my new stamp sets from Two Paper Divas and kept thinking how could I do something totally different?  Maybe change it up a bit??!!  Well, here's what I came up with:

I stamped one of their background stamps all over a piece of white card stock using maroon ink.  Then I ran my paper through the die cutting machine using a poinsettia die.  Isn't it cute?  I love how the flower looks like it has some texture to it.  Layered behind the poinsettia is a tan ribbon with maroon polka dots.  It's placed on top of a sweet aqua snowflake patterned paper.  Next, I stamped the sentiment, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" on white paper and added a little polka dot paper to the top and bottom.  A few glittery, silver dots were added and voila that's it!

Thanks for taking a minute to check out my latest creation!

Make it a great day!

Thanks Snow Much using FMS #212

Well, I figure I'm going to be good for a while now.  I've been under the weather for over a week ...darn cough, sore throat and cold that keeps lingering on and on.  That should mean I'm not going to catch anything else for the rest of the winter season, right?  (Crossing my fingers!) Check out my latest card using stamps from Two Paper Divas and a layout from Freshly Made Sketches:

I have to say I love white cardstock with kraft paper.  I wanted to try using white ink on the brown paper for this project.  Two Paper Divas just released these new background patterned stamps and I used two different prints for this card.  Each was stamped and cut out, along with roughing up the edges a bit.  I layered them on white cardstock and popped both for a 3-D effect.  The "Thanks Snow Much" stamp is also from Two Paper Divas set "Warm Winter Wishes."  To complete my project, I added a few wooden stars.  Perfect for that Christmas present thank you card!

Make it a great day!
