Bundle Up For The Holidays!

The Holiday Catalog has so many wonderful bundles, and we are going to be featuring projects created with these bundles.  I have had a few sessions of my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack, and I am excited to share this card with you!  This cards wins the award for the "sparkliest" card of the bunch!  LOL

Lots of bling on this card, right?  Silver Glimmer Paper, rhinestones, and the beautiful Winter Wonderland embellishments....oh, so sparkly!

Here is a close-up of all the details:

This card was made with the Flurry of Wishes Bundle from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  The Bundle contains the Flurry of Wishes photopolymer stamp set and the Snow Flurry Punch.

 Flurry of Wishes  Bundle   #140868   $33.00
The Snow Flurry Punch coordinates with the two small snowflakes in the stamp set.  And, the Flower Medallion Punch coordinates with the large snowflake.  

Flower Medallion Punch   #137417  $18.00

We used Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, and Pool Party ink for this card.  Each snowflake was layered onto a Silver Glimmer Paper snowflake with a Stampin' Dimensional, and then attached to the card front.  The large snowflake was embellished with a Winter Wonderland embellishment, and the medium and small snowflakes were embellished with medium and small rhinestones.  

I hope you like this card!  It was a fun card to make, and the ladies really enjoyed making it.

Now, it is time to move on to see what Missy has for us this month. I am sure it will be RemARKable!  Just click on the icon below:

Ho! Ho! Ho! Busy, busy, busy!

I have been cutting and embossing paper like a fool lately!  It is Holiday Stamp-A-Stack time, and I have been very busy prepping for these fun events.  My customers have enjoyed making 20 cards at these events, and I have one more on the books for November 21.  I designed 5 different cards, and each person makes 4 each of the 5 designs plus envelopes.  It has been a lot of fun!

This week, I would like to share the cards with you.  Hopefully, you will find some inspiration for your holiday cards.  So, without further ado, here is the first card:

The Red Foil Sheets are paired with Silver Glimmer Paper for a beautiful, sparkly card!  It is hard to capture the sparkle with my camera, but this card is simply stunning.  Here is a close-up:

The front of the card is embossed with the Boughs & Berries Textured Impressions Embossing folder to frame the ornament. The word "merry" is cut with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies. These dies also contain the words "peace" and "jolly."  

I used my Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies to cut the Silver Glimmer Paper solid ornament and the Red Foil detail ornament. I glued the two together and added a Silver Glimmer Paper ornament hanger (also a part of the thinlits dies) and a silver cording bow to complete the look.  Of course, I had to use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the ornament to the card front. (You know how I love to use Stampin' Dimensionals!)  

I am so lucky to have such great stamping friends!  Here are some photos from the Holiday Stamp-A-Stack sessions:

And, here is my scrap pile from making the ornaments!  LOL

Happy Stamping,
