Beautiful Blizzard with Seasonal Layers Snowflake

Whoooo Hooooo!  We are speeding towards
Christmas and the end of 2018.  Today, Susan,
Buffy and I are doing Christmas.

As soon as I saw the Beautiful Blizzard set, on page 39
of the Holiday Catalog,  I was sold.  The background
elements, including splotches, snowflakes and crosshatch,
enable a textured background for stamping
those lovely sentiments.   The sentiments are 
fresh, new and oh so eloquent.  
I just love this set.

The color combination for this card is Balmy Blue
and Tranquil Tide.  I really like this color combination,
which is kind of an off-beat winter blend.
I created a Sparkle Glimmer Paper (p 192) snowflake
with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

I am so happy to share my Christmas card with you,
and can't wait for you to see what Buffy and Susan
have created for their Christmas Challenge!!

Seasonal Chums with Seasonal Tags

I love the cute Christmas images from the 
Seasonal Chums Stamp set (p 103) and coordinating
Seasonal Tags Framelits (p 219).  They are 
simply warm and wonderful.  This little deer is
colored with Stampin' Blends and Layered on some
Real Red card stock.  I attached some bling, to add
interest to the focal image.  

The sentiment comes from Night of Bethlehem
on page 99.   This is a quick card, for
those who enjoy coloring with Blends!

Starlight Bethlehem Oversized Card

This project leads into the little video at the end, 
about glitter!  The video just makes me laugh.  This project is full
of Glimmer Paper, to make things pop.

Periodically I make oversized 10x10 cards for people at
church, so that the entire congregation can sign the cards.
This card uses retired DSP, and several current
framelits/thinlits.  The Bethlehem Edgelits (p 215) form the city
with multiple layers creating the sparkle.
I used the Starlight Thinlits (p 220) to make the star.
Were I to do this again, that darn star would be straight,
but the glue was set by the time I tried to change it.
I used the retired Little Letters to create the name.  

I saw this video on FB and thought it was a total hoot.

I will admit that glitter can be challenging to get
off your face or hands, but it still has it's 
place in the craft room!!
