Not the Bling I Promised You

Hi Friends

I'm a bit late with this post - but things got out of hand on my schedule over the last little while.  Sorry.  I promised you a post where I used the new Frosted Finishes Embellishments in the way that they were intended.  Then I got sidetracked into using other new sets (I can't wait to play with it ALL) and I ended up NOT designing the perfect card to show off these beautiful and glittery bling-y embellishments.  However, I am certain you will enjoy these 2 simple but festive cards.

Supply List 
Stamps - Christmas Collectibles (w131772, c131775), Teeny Tiny Wishes (w128748, c127802)
Paper - Whisper White (100730), Elegant Eggplant (105126) 
Ink - Elegant Eggplant (126969), Elegant Eggplant Marker (131262) 
Big Shot -  Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder (132174), Christmas Ornament Punch (132152), Word Window Punch (119857), Modern Label Punch (119849) 
Tools and Accessories - Basic Rhinestones (119246), Dimensionals (104430)

Did you know that starting tomorrow, you can order from the Holiday catalogue?  And this gorgeous, heirloom ornament stamp set and the punch are available as a cost-saving bundle.  You really want to own these - 5 different ornament images that make Christmas card-making a breeze!

This card was very quick and easy to create -- once I figured out how to emboss only a handful of the stripes instead of the entire card front!  :)   My club ladies will all find out how to do this.  Come join us if you'd like to learn some easy but Wow-techniques too!  Contact me for more information.

As for the second card in today's post:

Supply List 
Stamps - Festive Flurry (w131778, c131781), Calm Christmas (w132736, c132739)
Paper - Whisper White (100730) 
Ink - Midnight Muse (126860) 
Big Shot -  Northern Flurry Embossing Folder (120902), Festive Flurry Framelit Dies (132193) 
Tools and Accessories - Basic Rhinestones (119246), Dimensionals (104430)

I love using the new Festive Flurry Stamp set and Framelits together.  And I LOVE that you can order them as a bundle and save 15% on the cost!!  In fact, I love that Stampin' Up! made so many of the co-ordinating stamp sets and punches, dies or embossing folders from both the regular and Seasonal catalogue, available as cost-saving bundles.  Woo hoo!  

Okay - it really is time to get on with the rest of my day now.  Hope you are all looking forward to smiles, happiness and sunshine (even if only in attitude)!     

God Bless,     ~Cynthia    <><
