I had a chance to complete the sketch challenge over at SCS this week.  I really liked this one too!  Here it is:













Here is my card.  I call it Glitter Swirled Tree because I used my Stardust Pen to outline the swirls on the tree and the word Christmas and the swirl below it. You can’t see it in the picture though.  I couldn’t get the lighting right to get it to show up.  It looks really pretty in real life though!!!

In my attempt to get back in the flow, I’ve continued with the Delightful Decorations stamp set.  This first one was inspire by Dawn McVey!

I stamped the ornament with Pretty in Pink and punched it out with the SU! ornament punch.  I added some Crystal Effects and glitter to make the icicle appearance.  I did the same for around the patterned paper as well!

I am so excited to be done with these boxes!  I made 21 of each for a total of 63 boxes.  I didn’t think I would ever get them done!  I made these to help decorate the tables for our church’s Christmas program.  We are having a dinner theater. I still need to add some ribbon around the necks, but I need to purchase some first!!



I really LOVE this box idea.  Thanks to Clarie from Waltzingmouse Makes! She has some great stuff on her blog! She is extremely talented!  If you are looking for this template you can find it on the right hand side of her blog.  Scroll down and you’ll see it!

I have to say that I think my all time favorite set from Stampin’ Up! has to be Lovely As A Tree.  It is so versatile.  I know I’ve said that before, but it’s still at the top of my list!  The DP is from the new SU! DP called Ski Slope.  The tree is stamped in white craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I had these little glittery flower/star/snowflake embellishments for a long time.  I thought they would go nice with this card!


Enjoy your day!

I made myself set aside some time today to stamp. I have been so busy, I just could justify stamping when other things needed to be done! Well, today that changed! I decided that I WAS going to stamp today. Here is what I made.



Basically these are the same card, I just changed up the embellishments. I embossed the trees with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder so they have a little bling to them! It’s hard to see in the photos though. I sponged the sky with Navy and Turquoise. All of this started with Shimmery White cardstock. You can’t see that sparkle on the photos either. The added snowflake on the last card was taken from another Christmas card that my Grandma had received. She pulled the snowflakes off and sent them to me because she thought I could use them. *They weren’t from a homemade card!* She wouldn’t take someone else’s homemade card apart! I just wanted to make that clear!!! Well, I definitely found a use for this one!

I hope you are enjoying the season. Love, laughter, family and friends, but the most important reason for the season….Jesus’ birth!

Merry Christmas!
