Good morning! Yesterday at my work we had our annual Family Christmas dinner - so I was pretty much running around in circles all day... but it was nice to see all our residents family & friends!
I got to see the upcoming Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure starting today!! Let me tell you, that the products are simply fabulous... I want almost everything, some more than one! The SAB items are the best yet (my opinion, of course!) Another great thing is that both catalogues start on the same day (previously SAB started at the end of January). As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I got the opportunity to pre-order from the Occasions catalogue starting today - it's my early Christmas gifts to myself (aren't I kind?!) So many awesome items to choose from, but I have to pace myself this close to Christmas.
For today, I have a pretty card to share. It features two of my favourite Christmas items - the Festival of Trees and Bright & Beautfiul stamp sets. You're probably wondering where the trees are?!!! Well, since it's a photopolymer stamp set - it's super easy to align your images perfectly! I was able to seemlessly make the floral tree into a stunning background - and it didn't take a ton of time (a few minutes!) It really does make a beautiful background - I had a big space in the middle - so what better than a couple of Bright & Beautiful stars?! I added some sparkle and shine with some Gold Glimmer paper, Frosted Sequins and Rhinestone Basic Jewels! It's hard to see the words in the photo, but I stamped the sentiment from Festival of Trees in a row repeatedly until the words went right off the Coastal Cabana layer - lots of tone on tone for this card. I hope you like my share :)
