RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour: Winter Holidays

Hello, and welcome to this month's blog tour!  Our theme this month is Winter Holidays, and I know everyone will be sharing lots of great ideas for Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years.

My first card is one that we made at my World Card Making Day class last weekend.  I was inspired by all of the beautiful pine trees along the carriage paths in Acadia National Park in Maine.  We were lucky enough to spend a week there last month, and I just love the smell of pine as you are hiking.

Here is the card we made:

I just love the vintage look of this card!  It is hard to see in the photo, but I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the pine needles and the pine cone for a little extra sparkle.  The Ornamental Pine stamp set is also good for masculine cards.

The second card is one of my favorites!  I was making Christmas Ornaments with the Bright & Beautiful stamp set, and I thought "What would it look like on a card?"  So, I added one to this quick and easy card.  Heat embossing is one technique that is easy peasy, but always gets a wow!

I used the silver embossing powder for the large and small star.  The medium star was made with gold embossing powder.  Cutting them was a breeze with the Stars Framelits dies and the Big Shot machine.  I layered them with Stampin' Dimensionals, then attached the star to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Understated elegance was the look I was trying to achieve, and I think these beautiful stars do the job well!

Once we were finished with the cards, it was time to do our community service project for the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.  These ladies ROCK and completed 40 cards for care packages for women with GYN cancers.  Thank you, ladies!

Now, it is time to see what Missy Bolinger has for us this month!   Just click HERE to see her beautiful creations.
