Festive Friday Challenge #47 - Glimmer and Gold


For the Festive Friday Challenge this week, our challenge was to use this image as inspiration:

I decided to use the gold and the glimmery snowflake as the colour inspiration for my card....and the Christmas ornament as the main focus.....I came up with this:   

I embossed the greeting in gold onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched out an ornament shape. The gold embossed cardstock layer is the Stampin' Up! Brushed Gold cardstock....it is gorgeous!!! :)
I also used my BRAND NEW STAMPIN' TRIMMER!! It is the best trimmer I have ever had....place an order for one without delay! It is $49.95! :)
  Materials used:
Stamps - Greetings of the Season
Ink - Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Naturals Ivory, Brushed Gold
Accessories - Linen Thread, Pearl
Tools - Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Ornament Punch, Heat Tool, Merry Minis Punch Pack (star), Multipurpose Liquid Glue, SNAIL, dimensionals.

Festive Fridays #45 - Stampin' Up! Merry Minis Punch Pack


This week's Festive Friday Challenge is a colour challenge to use Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey and Whisper White. They are beautiful colours together.....Midnight Muse really sets the tone for a bold and elegant card.....SO gorgeous!

I used the Merry Minis Punch Pack for my glimmer ornaments....I have TONNES of scraps of glimmer paper laying about as a result of making Snow Flurry die snowflakes and other glimmery projects so if you are plagued with the same problem....BUY THE MERRY MINIS PUNCH PACK!!!! (preferably from ME!  LOL!). You will be able to make heaps of Christmas Cards with them and use up all your scraps. WIN WIN!

The embossed background is the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I used the 'puffy' side up to create a softer looking background....it looks quilted & beautiful! :)

The sentiment is from "Greetings of the Season" from the Holiday Catalogue....a gorgeous set of large sentiments that would look great on any Christmas card!

Materials used:
Stamps - Greetings of the Season
Ink - Midnight Muse, Basic Grey (for sponging)
Cardstock - Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories -  3/16" Metallic Pewter Brads
Tools - Merry Minis Punch Pack, Multipurpose Liquid Glue
