Happy New Year!!

I fully enjoyed my family at Christmas and over New Year's, so I have been absent on the blog! But, I'm hoping to get back to creating this week. 

Here is my "leftover" card from December. We were guests at a Tuesday evening wedding at a beautiful venue and there was a Christmas theme. I thought that the white on white card was perfect and that black would appropriately accent here and there on the card front.

Thank you for following my blog and I hope you are signed up to receive each and every notice of post. May 2018 be your best year yet!

Merry, Merry, Merry!

Today's card was inspired by one made by Allison Okamitsu. I changed her colors and used a different sentiment from the same stamp set: Merry Little Labels. The candles are from the Hostess set Merry Patterns. 

Each 12 x 12" piece of Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper will only made 6  card fronts when cut 4 x 5-1/4", so I used a couple of different patterns in black and white for my background. 

I could have easily framed the candles with the Old Olive card stock and made the base out of Cherry Cobbler and I think they would look just as nice. I also added my own touch with the Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine.

Shimmering Trees Christmas Greeting

I had some very special people in mind when I created today's card. Yes, my stamping friends! I have to create something special and original when I send to other stamping friends! Most of the people I know that stamp, myself included, save and treasure every hand made card they receive. I have more than a drawer full, all bundled in pretty satin ribbons. I do go through them once in awhile for inspiration and just to reminisce! Sometimes I cut the fronts off to save room, but I cannot bring myself to throw them away. How about you? Do you save or recycle hand made cards you receive?

The card base is Soft Sky and the Winter Wonder snowflake is embossed onto Shimmery White card stock. The sentiment from Hang Your Stocking stamp set is embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The sweet bow run between the two Silver Foil trees (from Card Front Builder Thinlits) was tied using the Whisper White 1/8" Ribbon. All these products come together to show a very elegant and shimmering card for my special friends!

Thanks for looking today! Please use my Online Store any time you wish to order. There is still time to order for Christmas, either to complete your projects or to give as gifts to your favorite stamper!
