The sentiment is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The stamp set has 4 different Holiday Greetings in it! It's a great set! The bling in the middle of each snowflake are just some little jewels that I purchased years ago from a fabric store to add a little glitz to my stepdaughters dress and matching purse for a dance she was going to. I use these little jewels all the time on my cards! Just add a little Tombow MultiPurpose Glue to make them stick!
Stamps: Snow Swirled, Four the Holidays
Ink: Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue
Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue
Accessories: 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches
Thanks for stopping by! I have another Christmas Card for you tomorrow!!

I stamped a bit on Sunday evening, and I wanted to share a card with you. It all started with a layout (FTL62) shown over at the Clean and Simple blog. Did I tell you that I love to stamp based on a layout?? :) I didn't have the large scallop punch that they used, so I punched out a few 1-3/4" circles and made it look like a large scallop. The ribbon covers up all the "ugly" stuff! The DSP is Bella Birds, which retired in August. Sorry, still have alot of paper to use up!! But this a great layout for any kind of card! Give it a try!
Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Ink: Bordering Blue
Paper: Bordering Blue, Bella Birds DSP (retired)
Accessories: Pink Pirouette Ribbon (retired), Buttons, Linen Thread, Bordering Blue Stampin' Write Marker
Have a great Monday!

This layout was inspired by Kimberly's card here. You can check out her blog, StampinBy the Sea. I love the wavy banner!!! I used a Mini Glue Dot under the banner, and gave it a little wave before adhering it to the cardstock. The jewels are some rhinestones that I purchased years ago for a different project. They always come in handy when I'm looking for some bling! The DSP is retired (I'm trying to use up some of my stash!!!). I only have less than one sheet in this pack!! Woo Hoo!!! I think I will use it up by making several more of these cards.
Have you started on your Christmas cards yet???
Enjoy your Sunday and hope you have a great week!

You might have seen the first one in a previous post when I hosted my Shoebox Swap with a few of my Demonstrator friends.
This card is so pretty! It just sparkles and shimmers! I mixed some Frost White Shimmer Paint in a small mist bottle with Rubbing Alcohol. Give it a good shake and spray your cardstock. you can get Shimmery Paper in any of our cardstocks!! You can see a great tutorial on Heather's blog.

Stamps: Big on Christmas
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Bashful Blue
Paper: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Frost White Shimmer Paint, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch, Light Blue Gingham Ribbon, Stampin' Write Markers, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with 2-way Glue Pen, Snowflake Die with Big Shot, Dimensionals
Isn't this next project just absolutely adorable? I can't take even an inkling of credit. I even copied Frankenstein's smile!!! LOL! I get so much inspiration from Becky's blog, Inking Idaho. Check it out and I'm sure you will be inspired! Take a look at this post on her blog...very cute!!!
This next project also came from Becky's blog, Inking Idaho. This is a great idea for using these Treat Cups! The black little tab piece is a slider door, so you don't have to rip the card apart to get to the treat!! Is that clever or what? She has a tutorial on her blog.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these great projects from our Shoebox Swap. I do have one more to share with you. I'm not sure why I didn't get it photographed. It must not have been in my pile when I was taking pictures. So I will get it posted this weekend.
Have a great weekend! Isn't this just beautiful weather we are having here in St. Louis? Our forecast calls for a nice Fall weekend!
