Colorful Christmas Lights

Happy Saturday!

Time is running out to get my Christmas cards finished, so I've spent a good portion of the day doing just that.

I have a fun one to share with you today. I found a Sizzix die-cut set the other day for 40% off and couldn't wait to play with it! It comes with a Christmas light, an ornament and a stocking. Here's my card using the light die.

I cut out four of them, colored them with Copics, added Glossy Accents and Frosted Lace Stickles, then used a string and dimensional adhesive to adhere them to the card base. The background is white embossed with Hero Arts' Tiny Flakes.

I had the day off today from work, and I am actually at the start of an eight day vacation. It'll be spent getting the tree up and decorations out and basically catching up with life before a busy holiday season
gears up in the floral department.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! :)

My Last Week of Designing for SSS

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with one last card for my month of guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. 

This week, the challenge is Anything Goes, and the design team are all using products from Martha Stewart. I love her new, Holly Craft Punch and her Brights Glitter, so I decided to combine the two on my card.

I punched out the holly three times from some double sided, adhesive sheets, then sprinkled on some green glitter and burnished each one. I thought it would be fun to adhere the holly in the shape of a flower, placing them inside the negative space from a die-cut, Spellbinders circle. It's difficult to see, but I also used Martha's Scoring Board. There are five scored lines running down the entire card from top to bottom. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called, Holiday Sayings.

I hope you'll play along this week! As always, the prize is a generous $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!

You have until Wednesday, December 5th, 8am Ohio time, 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in!
