From Our House To Yours

My card below is featured today at
Sparkle N Sprinkle!

From Our house to yours.....
what a fabulous stamp this is!
It is all part of the stamp set Merry Christmas Tree 906.
I just love this newly released set
and will using it a lot for my Christmas cards this  year.

I decided on a non-traditional color for a change and went with pink and silver.
I first die cut a background to stamp on using
The image was stamped with  Versamark VM001
then embossed with  Silver Detail  EP257 embossing powder.
Once that was done, I used the die again to just cut a piece without the delicate design
from sticker paper. I peeled off the backing and carefully lined it up
and adhered it to my image piece.
This left the 'sticky' exposed so I could add glitter.

I added a gorgeous  glitter called Tooth Fairy GM2036.

Using   DeluxeAdhesive 200N I added dots of glue to each of the ornaments 
on the image, then using Tooth FairyGM2036 glitter once again,
I sprinkled it onto each ornament.
was added to the center of each star.

I die cut a tag, then stamped the cute sentiment with
Pink Sherbet ink from the Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads Rose Garden 83N set.
I tied on a jingle bell with silver thread.

To my card base I added a pink cards stock which I embossed
the lower half with a dotted embossing folder
(I though it resembled the ornaments on the image)
to the upper half.

I hope you have been inspired to make a few Christmas cards of your own....

Those are both so cool using that funky tree design. Great humor in these too. I love all the embossing as well.

Ohhh, I have this tree as a digi from Bugaboo and love it! You've shown exactly why I like having regular stamps as well as digis, 'cause the silver embossing looks soooo pretty! Absolutely love that pink glitter! Every year I try to make at least one pink Christmas card and I don't think I've done that yet. Hmmm... I'll have to check. Awesomely pretty card, Diane!
