Mickey's Merry Christmas

As I sat on Halloween night having enjoyed all the trick or treaters, I see our Disneyland tickets laying on my table.  So off to my craft room I went and came up with this beautiful card.  By the time you all read this, I will be in Disneyland enjoying the beginning of the holiday season.  This card is on a base card of blushing bride.  The snowflakes were stamped using the Many Merry Stars photopolymer stamp set which is featured in the 2014 holiday supplement by Stampin' Up!  I embossed them using iridescent ice.  The Mickey head is made using the 3rd and 6th circles from the circle Framelit dies and cut from basic black and they are also embossed in iridescent ice using the same stamp set.  The banner is from the White Christmas set in the holiday catalog and embossed in gold.  I had to fussy cut it myself but it was worth the effort.  I hope this inspires and here's wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas.

Brightly embossed Season's Greetings

Gold and silver embossing on these stars from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set make a lovely card in non-traditional colors.  The smaller background embossed stars are from the White Christmas stamp set.  The stars are cut using the coordinating star framelits.  The greeting is also from Bright and Beautiful and was cut out use the Apothocary Accents framelits. The card base is in lost lagoon.  A very popular color for this upcoming holiday season.

Christmas Eve holiday Home

This piece uses the Holiday Home photopolymer stamp set.  I absolutely love the versatility of this set.  Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving,Christmas and so many other possibilities for year around.  My favorite part is how many different ways you can use it and be creative.  This set has matching framelits to cut out the houses only.  I colored the houses uses blendabilities and used direct ink to paper to create my background setting.  The greeting comes from the same stamp set.  Enjoy, I know I had a lot of fun creating it.
