Greetings from Santa

Finally had a chance to make a card with my Greetings from Santa stamp set and the Detailed Santa Thinlets Die.  The base of my card is Whisper White.  I put the thinlet on the front of the card and ran it through the Big Shot.  Then I cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock at 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" and put in behind Santa to know where to align my stars.  Then I ran the Cherry Cobbler through the Big Shot to cut out the stars.  I cut a piece of Blushing Bride behind Santa's face and glued it in place.  Then I colored in his eyes with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker and put black dots for his eyes with the Basic Black marker.  I placed the Cherry Cobbler behind the Santa and glued it in place.  I cut out Silver Foil glasses and glued them over the first pair.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom with Cherry Cobbler.  This card was inspired by Frenchie.

Wrapped in Warmth Red Christmas Sweater

This is my new Christmas sweater creation.  I wouldn't exactly call it an "ugly sweater" this time although, it was my intentions when I started. It is actually kind of cute with those Christmas Trinkets Embellishments for buttons from the Holiday Catalog.  They are attached with Glue Dots.   This sweater is made with Real Red cardstock and the new Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF.  I just cut 1/2" strips and used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stylus to create the red trim.  The Whisper White Pompom Trim is from the Annual Catalog and I attached it with Tear and Tape.  I used Whisper White for the shirt under the sweater by using the Layered Circle Framelit for the neckline.  So, maybe my next creation will be an "ugly sweater" but I don't think this one is, do you?

Hang Your Stocking

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care!  The Real Red stockings remind me of the stockings I have purchased for my family. The base of my card is Real Red card stock.  I used the Brick Wall for the Whisper White  background of my card.   The new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create my stockings using Real Red cardstock.  The top trim is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  The Noel at the top if also Real Red.  All of them were cut out with the Christmas Stockings Thinlet Dies in the Big Shot.  The hangers are attached with Glue Dots and the stockings have Dimensionals on the back to hold them in place.

Embellished Ornaments with Merry Tags

The base of my card is Garden Green cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" in the middle.
Stampin' Up! has lots of greens, but Garden Green has always been a favorite of mine.  I think it goes well with the Gold Foil.  I used the Merry Tags to cut out the Gold Foil and one solid one with Garden Green.  But it needed another layer, so I used my Layering Circles Framelit Dies.  The ribbon is the 1/8" Gold Ribbon.  The background is from the Pine Boughs Embossing Folder which is sponged with Garden Green before running it through the Big Shot.  The "Thinking of You at Christmas" is from the Embellished Ornaments set and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
