New Holiday Goodness


Just popping in to share a quick card I did using some new stamps. If you took the Kick Start class, you will recognize this circle. (I love saving unused pieces and using them for something else… like an ornament.) Since I had this assembled piece on hand, this card took me 4 minutes. Yahoo!

Added a piece of Ranger Foil to the top of the ornament and a glitter heart for more shine. And the diagonal white pieces are floating so you can see through it – using the Air Vent Die. Love the look it gives.

The background is a fun one from Hero Arts. It works for many styles of cards… especially where a lot of the background is showing like this one.

And don’t you just love the greeting? That is a new one from Paper Smooches. Check out their new sets…


Be back soon.
