It seems that some parts of our country were hit with a pretty good snow storm today, so tonight I want to share a card I made for the holidays this year. I love any kind of card that appears to have a snowy background on it. This is easily achieved by tearing some whisper white cardstock and adding a little bit of dazzling diamonds glitter to the torn edge! To emboss the snowflake on this card I just caught the corner of the cardstock in the embossing folder and cranked it thru and then back again. I added a rhinestone that I colored with a little bit of the gold marker we sold in the holiday catalog which gave the rhinestone that vintage mercury glass look. The words on the bottom edge of this card were from a wheel we sold. I have been peeling all of my wheels off of the rollers and mounting them on the foam that we sell. It is so much easier to work with them this way, just mount them onto your clear blocks!
I think this is a really beautiful and peaceful card for the holidays. I hope you enjoy it!
Recently I co-hosted the holiday party for my first level downline girls and the Stampin'Circle Group with my upline Susan Gardner. The nice part of this party is that all of the demonstrators bring the food and Susan is pretty strict that it has to be something really yummy and homemade! I didn't get a picture of our lunch but we had some delicious salads, appetizers and desserts and I send a yummy thank you to all who were there! It was an amazing spread of food!
After lunch Susan treated us to a white elephant gift exchange of Stampin'Up! products which was so much fun. I can't tell you how excited I was to steal a box of ink pads that someone else had opened!! I will share a few pictures from the event. After we opened our presents, we gathered in my stamp area and made a couple of projects! Be sure and scroll down - because you won't want to miss out on what we created!!
How about that fabulous rack of presents! It was so fun! Susan made us all feel special!
Now it's time for some stamping fun!
And now let me share what we made! A few weeks before the party Susan and I got together to try to figure out what we were going to make. We had over 20 ladies gathering together so it had to be something simple, but we wanted it to be spectacular. We decided we both loved the ornament on the front of the Holiday Mini Catalog, so we would do that. When we went to make a sample, we quickly scrapped that idea. That amount of cutting was never going to work with this large of a group - and it would just take too long. So we put on our thinking caps and we decided we really wanted to do an ornament, but we needed to come up with something that could be done quicker, and so we figured out how to make this ornament using just three punches!
If you are interested in purchasing a kit or tutorial on this ornament, please send me a note!
It was a really fun day together with our great group of demonstrators and Susan and I are so lucky to know these ladies! I also wanted to send a thank you to Susan for all of the fun this day provided.
