joy!...what is more sweeter, than joy? I can think of nothing, what a sweet Christmas card this is. Have you heard about the Skipping Stones Design Stamp & Share Challenge? This month it is a Christmas challenge, the challenge is only once a month and runs for a week. Get all the details and play along with us here. I am sharing a super simple card using two of the new Skipping Stones Design Stamp sets, Christmas Labels and Merry & Bright. I heat embossed the sweet snowflakes with white embossing powder unto a piece of polka dotted paper, so pretty. I then die cut then section I wanted out, added a zig zag die cut strip of paper. I then used peach colored alpha stickers to created the word “joy”…so adorable and very CAS…a great card to reproduce! Add a little glimmer to your life...sparkle & shine!

especially for you

I adore this color combo! I played along with this weeks tgif challenge, it's a remixmix....what fun! I used the colors and the sketch, I sponged the yellow circle using a memory box stencil and tim holtz squeezed lemonade ink. I then went back with a simon says stamp circle stencil and added grey metallic circle to the bigger circles....I adore the outcome. I have been pulling out my beloved and forgotten buttons....buttons never go out of style, do they? Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine!
