Well its the first week of November and yes, I’ve put up my christmas decor. I waste no time. I LOVE CHRISTMAS! I love the smell of christmas (my holiday Partylite candles are burning as I write), I love the sparkly decorations, I love the shopping. I love everything about the season, including cards. As I embark on my journey as a Stampin’Up demonstrator, I’ve already designed a few holidays cards in hopes of booking a couple card parties and sharing the magic that is the handmade card.
I found this super cute idea on Stampin’Up’s demonstrator website, to use the owl punch (super adorable on its own) to make this very cute penguin….and with the addition of sparkly snowflakes falling behind him, its a great card if I say so myself.
There of course needs to be a classic, neutral but simply spectacular card as well. My beloved Snow Swirled fit the bill. I heat embossed is with a champagne embossing powder and embellished it with mini pearls.Very elegant.
Both the cards above are in my favorite color scheme this year, bashful blue, lucky limade and real red.
I had alot of fun creating the cards and I can’t wait to share them in time for the holidays. I’ve attached the link to the Stampin’Up catelogues and of course, the holiday mini.
Love and Thanks,
