GDP065 Thanks To You

Great color challenge for this time of the year!
I have finished my Christmas cards and mailed them out.
But I thought I could do a thank you card (which I will need
in a few weeks for after Christmas gifts)!  
I used some of my load of Candy Cane Christmas DSP!
Yes, I still have lots of it but hopefully my tag 
classes this week will use some up!
The sentiment is from Designer Tin of Cards. 
I had a strap of the ribbon so added it behind.
I hope you have a lovely day and can play along over at

Thanks for stopping by!

PP324 Flurry Tag

When I saw the snowflakes challenge I wanted to play along!
However, I am so done with Christmas cards and all mine are now mailed out!
So since I have tag classes this week, I decided to make a snowflake tag so I
can have another sample for classes.
I stamped the Flurry of Wishes snowflakes in Pool Party and the snowflake
background in same color with a stamp from the
 Christmas Pines stamp set.
I cut the Merry Christmas in a banner and stamped in Night of Navy.
Added a small oval in Pool Party behind.
I used retired Pool Party glimmer ribbon.
Hope you can play along over at

Have  a blessed Tuesday!

Happy Christmas!

This is another card I designed for 
the InkBig design team last month. 
It measures 5" square.
I used the cooper foil paper to layer with Very Vanilla and Pool Party.
I heat embossed the flourish with Copper emboss powder. 
I also heat embossed the bells and the sentiment.
I used the copper foil for the bows which were from the 
Santa's Sleigh dies.
I hope you have a wonderful day and a Happy Christmas!

Silver Bells

Love some silver bells.  The song makes me cry.
My grandfather and I sang it together as he played it on the piano.

I punched three bells from silver glimmer paper. 
Embossed some Elegant Eggplant with the holly folder. 
Add a few pine branches and it just sparkles!
I designed this for the InkBig design team last month. 
I have to work purple in where I can. 
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a lovely Sunday!

Seasonal Bell Tags

A few tags I designed with the Seasonal Bells set and matching punch. 
After I did the first one in Rich Razzleberry and decided to do a "boy" tag in
Dapper Denim. 
I stamped the bell on Sweet Sugarplum card stock
 and punched out with the bell punch. 
Same with the blue in Pool Party card stock. 
A little shiny silver glimmer ribbon and rhinestones and sequins
 to finish them off!
Hope you can have fun making tags this year!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

FMS265 Promise of Christmas

Trying not to make anymore Christmas cards since I do not need
more for this season. 
 However, I did have a friend contact me to buy some Christmas cards
this week.  So this will be in the stash when she comes.  
I stamped the background rays from Kinda Eclectic in 
Delightful Dijon. 
 I then stamped the nativity from Joyful Nativity in Night of Navy
and die cut it out. I stamped the sentiment also in Navy
and popped it up double across.
I hope you can play along over at 
this week with Narelle's awesome sketch!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
