Ms. Holiday Cheer

I believe my good friend, Amy M., created this card. I love everything about it. I love the sparkles, the Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment embellishment. It's on a clear card, too! Who wouldn't want to get this card this holiday season?

The stamping is from Ms. Holiday Cheer, which is an adorable "Bella-esque" stamp set.

Clear Card--Scalloped Circle

I love the clear cards, but I was super intimidated by them at first. I didn't know what adhesive to use, how to layer precisely, etc.

Then I started creating with them. It has been so much fun and not as intimidating as I thought. Because CTMH's B&T paper is double-sided, it's not that big of deal to cover the back sides. I use regular bonding memories glue to adhere everything. TIP: remove the clear film from both sides of the card before adhering anything to it.

This card was made by one of the swap members. It's so cute. It used the Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment with the flower and snowflake brad.

Just For The Holidays

This is one of my absolute favorite cards from the swap. Kayla made it. I adore the colors on it-- very non-traditional. Plus, I love the Dimensional Element Flurry.

This card is the perfect example of how you CAN make Christmas cards that don't contain red and green color combinations. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Products used: Magnifique Paper, Dimensional Element Flurries, Blue Sparkles, Chocolate Ribbon (retired), Just For the Holidays stamp set, Round cards.

Donna W. created this card for the swap. The papers used are now retired. The stamp set used is called Gloria. This stamp set has several "stained-glass" images. She used the Blending Pen or the Waterbrush to color in the image.

The neat thing about this card is the pocket on the front. The card could also double as a bookmark.

Here's a photo of the stamp set and a card where the stamp set is used:

Captured Moments

Tina S. made this beautiful card. The stamp set used is called Captured Moments. This stamp set consists of 3 fall and winter scenes and 6 sentiments. I love the simplicity of the sentiments.

What makes this card unique is the use of non-traditional  colors for the card. I love the Magnifique paper. It's gorgeous! The prisma glitter on the card is icing on the cake. It "makes" the card.

Heartfelt Christmas

This card was made by Pam C. The stamp set used is called Heartfelt Christmas. She also used a bit of paper from the Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack. I love the distressing with cocoa along the edges. And she actually stitched on her card! How could you NOT love this?

The cranberry grosgrain featured on this card is on sale right now on my website!

Father Christmas

This card was made by Jackie R. She used the Mistletoe Creative Basics and Father Christmas stamp set. She embossed "Postcard," and added some red Sparkles to it.

I love the simplicity of this card. I think the red sparkles give it that extra pop. I also love the Merry Christmas font.

Thanks, Jackie!
