A bit of Christmas today...

Did you see this on the Unity Stamp Co. blog this morning??? A new monthly kit exclusively for stores... can you believe how cute this is?!? I love it and know that I am going to be urging my favorite retailers to carry it...


My thought process... if I actually start my Christmas cards now, I may actually get them sent out this year. Think that will actually work for me? LOL, no probably not. The better idea would be to just go upstairs and finish the assembly of last year's Christmas cards. *eek*

But anyway, back to today's blog post. I have been having some fun playing with Unity Stamp Co. new Christmas stamp kit, Bright & Merry Winter Wishes. This card was done using the sketch from Mojo Monday this week (#93.)

Supplies used:
*K&Company Christmas collection
*Spellbinders die-cut
*May Arts velvet ribbon
*scallop deco scissors
*corner rounder
*white brads

And here is my second card. I was trying for a more elegant look with the black and white effect... still not too sure that I achieved it.

I had some clear little plastic snowflake charms that fit this snowflake stamp perfectly so I added it and a flat back gem to the stamped snowflake to give it some extra dimension. It's hard to see it in the photos, but it is a pretty cool effect in person.

Supplies used:
*PinkPaislee paper (blue)
*MM paper (black & white stripe)
*Spellbinders die cut
*plastic snowflake charm
*flat-backed gem
*silver string
