Snowman Season on Paint Strip

Surprise, it's an extra post.  I have a number of
Christmas cards waiting in the wings so plan to get
them all posted before the big day.

A friend of mine works at Lowes and I have a request 
in for paint strips.  I decided to go kind of monochromatic
and stamped the snowman from Snowman Season
(Holiday page 20) in Stazon.   I layered the paint strip
on some Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder
(Holiday page 31).

Detailed Skate Dies

It is so hard to believe that it is Friday again!
I think that our stormy weather this week has thrown
my internal calendar off.  Or maybe it is the very real
approach of Christmas next week!

I have to say that I think that the Detailed Skate Dies
(Holiday page 44) is one of the best products in the
Holiday catalog.  Sadly, it is not carrying over next year.
I love all the details on that skate, and the delightful bow.
The other feature is that delicious Wrapped in Plaid
Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It is "Specialty" paper,
because of the highlights of gold foil that run through it.
This makes it easy to coordinated a gold foil die
with the DSP.

You Always Deliver Merry Moose

This card is You Always Deliver (page 59), meets
Merry Moose (Holiday page 27), with a layer of Gold Foil
run through the Hammer Metal 3D Embossing Folder
(Holiday page 31).  I bent the packages a little, so
they fit in the postman's hand.  Stampin' Blends colors
were selected from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty
Designer Series Paper (Holiday page 14).  I used the
Stitched Shapes and Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut
out card elements.

Moose Punch with Mercury Glass

Welcome to another Moose Punch Monday.  Today is another 
non-traditional Christmas card, this time Rococo Rose
and Night of Navy.  I added panels of Mercury Glass
Designer Acetate (Holiday p 33) and Silver Foil.
I wanted to try the Mercury Glass/foil combination,
so needed that idea "out of my head."
