I started with this lovely Tartan Plaid paper from Basic Grey's "Jovial" Collection and was immediately obsessed! Ended up using it on each of my 3 cards!
Oh yes, and that VELVET ribbon! That snuck up on another card today! Loved this little Deer Trio die cut. The stamped sentiments from Serendipity Stamps are amazing! I loved how this turned into a more masculine card. I always need one to give our nephew at Christmas. He's a senior at the Rochester Institute of Technology so it's always money for him. I would never even think of trying to pick out a gift LOL!
My next card featured my FIRST ever card with a seam binding bow! Always been too scared to try, but then Melissa Phillips featured how she ties and glues hers on a Make It Monday video, and now I might be hooked! This card was a bit difficult to photograph. I did quite a bit of glittering up that little snowy sled image and it's hard to see.
I used a mix of Martha Stewart's Clear Coarse Glitter, Stickles, a Sakura glaze pen on the wooden part of the sled, and a Sakura Stardust pen for the parts that would be metal.
The last featured an amazing ornament die cut from Serendipity Stamps! Jeanne included SO many wonderful little gems and embellishments. I parted with a few for this one. I had to force myself to take them out of their sweet little vellum envelopes. Everything was so PRETTY just sitting there in the box! I didn't feel like I should be allowed to touch it, hee!
There is a little blog candy up for grabs on the hop this month! One commenter from one of the 12 Kits posts will be randomly-selected to receive the ornament stamp and die set from Serendipity Stamps. So be sure to leave comments along the way!
Thanks SO much to Renee, Jeanne, and ALL of the ladies for letting me join in the fun this month! I can't wait to see the projects created from Jeanne's Super-Sized kit :) Here are the links...
