I am so excited to be participating in this month's Tour de Freaks! If you've just arrived from Mary Brown's AWESOME blog, thank you so much for taking the time to pop on over! If you are a regular here, you are in for a real treat. You are about to embarque on a 15 stop journey to some of the best blogs in the stampin' & scrappin' world!! Our focus this month is Christmas Cards!! At the end of this post click on the Tour de Freaks logo & you'll go straight over to Dawn Olchefske FANTASTIC blog. You will be able to go from blog to blog until you get back to mine! We will keep the links up so even if you are getting here after the 20th, you can still enjoy the tour!
The "official" tour starts tomorrow morning, October 20th, so please be patient if all the links are not up just yet.
I wanted to keep a coordinated look to the cards I'm showing you, so I used the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper from the main Idea Book & Catalog on all three cards.
On the above card, I wanted to show you that simplicity does not equate to boring!! The Merry Christmas from the "Christmas Greetings" set was stamped in Craft White & embossed with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder.
I used the NEW Sweet Centers Stamp Set & Sweet Centers Treat Cups from the Holiday Mini Catalog & filled them with "Christmas" colored M&Ms. I don't know about you, but I know I would be so pumped to receive a handmade card that included CHOCOLATE!!
I've had this idea floating around in my brain for awhile, but I held off creating it because I knew I wanted to share it with all of you on the Tour de Freaks!! The "joy" ornament coordinates with the Holiday Mini Set "Delightful Decorations" & was available to purchase at Convention this past summer and is on the Demonstrator Only Section of the Stampin' Up! Website. This little perk is just one of the many things I love about being a demonstrator!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope to see you again real soon!!
Please feel free to leave a comment & I'll get back to you ASAP!!
