Holiday Stamp-A-Stack Card #5

Hi! First of all, I would like to thank all my stampin' friends who joined me this weekend for my annual Holiday Stamp-A-Stack. I appreciate your support and I enjoyed chatting with everyone!! I hope you enjoyed yourself too!! Did the Christmas music put you in the Christmas mood? I have been listening to it all week while preparing for this class! My husband had to ask me once to turn it down!! I guess I got carried away! I love Christmas music! Do you have a favorite Christmas song or CD?

Here is my final card that we stamped at my annual Holiday Stamp-A-Stack. I have seen many cards with this layout and it's perfect for this stamp set. I didn't have enough Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon for everybody to make 2 cards. So they used the Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon for their second card. This card is so pretty in real life. The Dazzling Diamonds glitter is really what makes this card. It's kind of "flat" without it!! I found that it was easier to stamp the ornaments first, then the ribbon. Oh, and one more tip...when stamping the ribbon, do not "smoosh" your stamp. It won't be very pretty!! Just lightly stamp and add a little pressure. :)

Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Four the Holidays
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, 2-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Ok, well that does it for my cards that we stamped at my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack this past weekend. I still have one more session for this event...Tuesday, December 1st at 10:00 a.m. Please join me if you are available during the day.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack cards!! I hope you are inspired to create your own Christmas cards!!

I always have at least 1 Christmas CD in the changer in the car at all times.

Favorite is "The Christmas Song" aka "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire"

Thanks for sharing your cards from the stamp-a-stack. LOVE them!
