Another Holy Night

I've said it before, but I love this stamp set! It is so simple yet cute and full of impact! It looks great in a variety of colour combos too. Last time I showed you this stamp set using a chalkboard effect, today I've made a lovely card using different shades of blue.

Stamps: O Holy Night
Ink: Costal Cabana, Island Indigo
Paper: Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Winter Frost DSP
Accessories: Rhinestones

Isn't is cute?! And that Winter Frost DSP with just a hint of shimmer really adds to it!
Happy Stamping,
Elizabeth Emma

Chalkbord Holy Night

Sorry for my hiatus lately, it's been a busy household around here. Between teaching classes (crafting) and taking classes (nursing), working full time (mommy and nurse), trying to keep a clean house and squeeze in some fitness at the same time, life has been a little hectic. But I am back, hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more of me!

Today I have a card to share with you using one of my favourite stamp sets from the holiday catalogue. It's such a simple stamp (actually the set only comes with 2 pieces) but I love it, I find it so pretty and just says everything that Christmas is.

Stamp Sets: O Holy Night
Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink
Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Seam Binding Ribbon

A super simple card but I absolutely love the chalkboard effect, created with the whisper white craft ink. Stay tuned later this week and I will share a totally different style card using the same stamp set.
Happy Stamping,
Elizabeth Emma

Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags

The new Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags from Stampin' Up! come in a booklet of 70+ tags in five designs -- created from already existing punches and die shapes. These tags (which coordinate with the Season of Style products in the 2013 holiday catalogue) are perfect especially if you cannot decide which punch or die shape you are interested in buying!

Play with the kits, decide on your favourite shapes and if you really fall in love you can purchase the coordinating punch or die and use it on all sorts of other projects as well! Check out this flyer to see the different kits that are available or better yet, visit me at my upcoming craft fairs where I will have these kits available and you can TAKE THEM HOME THAT DAY! I will only have a limited supply on hand so visit early, or call me in advance to have yours set aside (there are always more available to order but if you would like to take one home that day it is first come first served).
