It's Christmas!

Stamp sets: mosaic madness, snowflake soiree
Ink: midnight muse, versa mark
Card: midnight muse, whisper white
Accessories: white embossing powder, embossing buddy, heating tool, stamp-a-ma-jig, rhinestones, mosaic punch, dimensionals

I love the simplicity of this project!  I've used the new mosaic madness stamp-set and co-ordinating punch to emboss and punch out the decorations on midnight muse card.  I added them with dimensionals for some extra dimension. A sentiment and rhinestones lift this card to 'wow'!  I still haven't decided if I'll use this design for my Christmas Cards's a fun design, and it'll lends itself to a "production line" card-making session(s).

I know it's a little early to think about Christmas, but since I love Christmas, in my world, it's never too early for the holidays...  Just wait until the new Holiday Catalogue comes out in a few this space!

Mosaic madness!

Card: strawberry slush, costal cabana
Ink: strawberry blush, costal cabana
Stamp set(s): mosaic madness, create a cupcake
Accesseries: mosaic punch, rhinestones, stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals

I know it's been awhile (I'm saying this a lot these days...), but I've been having fun with some new goodies!  I'm in love with this stamp set and the co-ordinating punch - they are perfect to play around with!  I decided to use two of the new in-colours to create this birthday card.  Of course, I had to stamp the inside, and I added a fun sentiment to go with the 'happy birthday' on the front.  I created a quick and simple banner to add the main sentiment, and finished it off with some bling to give it some 'wow'.

This has already been sold to a friend for a birthday celebration today!  Hope she likes it!

I've set myself a challenge to blog once a week for the next little while, so we'll see how it goes. It always feels good to set some goals and actually see them being achieved.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this challenge can bring some positive motivation to my creativity.  Wish me luck!
