Did you enjoy the Inky Friends Blog Hop this past weekend?  I for one got lots of ideas and added to my new Catalog must-haves!

In the post below you will find a few more details about the cards I showcased along with FREE Project Sheets for every card – they have all measurements, colors and supplies that I used to make each one of them – just look for the red words and click on the link – you can download or print them for reference.

I finished up my third card and as promised, here it is – another Christmas card but this time with a bit of a love theme going on…and still featuring that cute Reindeer LOL – I just couldn’t bear to leave him out!

For this card I decided I wanted a bit of a love & heart theme and found the perfect background paper in – believe it or not – Coffee Break DSP – those little hearts and the Garden Green color were a perfect match for my holiday card!

All of the stamps I used on this card can be found in Merry Mistletoe and the tree branch was created using a die from Seasonal Layers Thinlits – I then stamped & fussy cut the mistletoe and added it to the branch using Dimensionals and finally added a bow so that it looks like it is tied onto the branch…

To carry on my heart theme I added a sparkly heart to the Reindeer – I punched that heart out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and as you can see, I also layered the stamped layer onto a piece of that beautiful glitter paper as well.  I love his little heart…ties right in with the background paper too!

I wanted the Merry Christmas to really stand out and so stamped it with Real Red Ink and cut it out with my Paper Snips.

And to give a bit more of a frosty look, I added a snowflake that I die cut again with a die from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and added a little sparkly Rhinestone in the center – I love how it is peeking out from the layer there…

And back to my Blog Hop cards – here is another look at my Deer themed Birthday card…I love how you can use individual stamps from a set to create very different genre cards to use year round.  You can see that I stamped the deer onto a piece of white cardstock and shaped it using an oval die from Stitched Shapes Framelits – again, another go to set of dies that I use so many times…

And there is more glitter on this card LOL – I used the Gold Glimmer Paper to die cut my leaves and added a little sequin at the top from Gold Mini Sequin Trim – I love that trim because again, it’s super versatile – you can use a length of it on a project OR do what I did and just pop one off to use on it’s own as a little accent.

Talking of little accents, the textured heart fits right in and you can find it in Corrugated Elements – one of the new additions to the embellies line and I have used bunches of them already – they are highly recommended!

And that deer…oh my, do I love using that stamp…he is like the new Dasher in my stamping world!

Here is another look at my white snow scene Christmas card…it is such a shame that it is SO hard to capture that stitched circle which is textured with the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder but it looks SO much like deep snow in real life!

The sparkly tree was created with the tree die from Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits – and the wintery moon uses the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch – and both are cut from the fabulously sparkly Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper – just my favorite color of glitter paper to work with and PERFECT for snowy cards!

And you can see that by simply adding those accents with Dimensionals, it is an instant and easy step up to your projects – I absolutely LOVE Dimensionals!

Not much more to say about this simple but sparkly and textured card except…
