Christ-MASS Production!


Well, I banged out 32 of these bad boys today.  Wanted to create a card that would be simple & mailable.  Kittie Caracciolo has some really gorgeous cards on her blog and I wanted to try my hand at making something similar, but much less "dimensional".  I adore Kittie's work!

OK, I confess, it's not Stampin' Up! only, but you know I can't resist a pretty die & that branch punch just makes such nice pine-y foliage ;)  But see??  See how your non-Stampin' Up! stuff can work so well with Stampin' Up! stuff?  I bet you've got some craft supplies lying around that you don't know what to do with because you can't figure out the best way to use them.  Well, give me a call!  I can recommend some wonderful stampy things from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog to make you love ALL your neglected tools and supplies again!  Face it, we've all got some things lying around or lost in drawers because we bought them & now can't remember why or can't decide how to use them.

This card uses Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Garden Green, and Very Vanilla cardstock and the lovely Frostwood Lodge stamp set.  Notice the little holly berries?  That's a sneak peek from the Occasions Mini - yep, more Dazzlin' Details coming soon - that's Cherry Cobbler & it's SCRUMPTIOUS!!!  I love me some bling!!  I used Stazon Jet Black ink & spritzed the window view with some homemade glimmer mist (email me for the recipe, credit to Lyssa Zwolanek for sharing).  I wish you could see better how it makes the stamped image sparkle.

Well, off to address my cards!  Merry Christmas!!

Happy stampin',

Jeni

PS  Head over to my DBWS & check out the Clearance Rack Blitz - but hurry!!  It's going FAST.
