Hello Rubbernecker Sisters!!  HOP day has arrived!!  The Stampin’ Sisterhood has LOTS to share today!!  Thank you SO much for joining us! 

I have two cards to share with you today.

May you have

I started with the sentiment which is stamped using Faded Jeans distress ink. I let it dry just a bit and then stamped the small tree image over it using Versamark ink and clear embossing. I then stamped the snowflakes using Versamark and embossing with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. It was cut/embossed using Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles. That was matted with the dark brown cs. I then cut/embossed the large snowflake using Spellbinders Snowflake pendant. The snowflakes were overstamped on it using Versamark ink and then embossing with Iridescent Ice ep. That is mounted onto the dp from Authentique’s Splendid collection and again matted with the brown. As a finishing touch, I added the rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes and to the star on top of the tree.


Stamps: May You Have SKU 409-01, Christmas Tree Set SKU 592, Snowflake Set SKY 587

I call this card “Red paper packages tied up with string”. You know that song, right? Anyway, I used an ad with these cute packages on it for the large panel and of course tied it up with some string. The red card front is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder – Holly Ribbons. The image is the large star from Happy Holidays Ornament Star Set with snowflakes from Snowflake Set added to the center. The centers are glammed up with a little bit of stickles. I cut the ornament out and popped it up. btw, the smaller ornament star fits inside the larger image as well. It’s another great look you can get with this set.

Stamps: Snowflake Set SKU 587, Happy Holidays Ornament Star Set SKU 411-0203.

Love your layered images and divine embossing on the snowflake creation! So full of creative stamping, Karen! And the red package tied up with string?! I love tying up a package or two or three with string or raffia! You made me smile at how small the world can be sometimes!
