CCC #053: Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to the LAST Catherine and Cathy Create Cards Challenge! Cathy and I have decided life is just TOO busy to try and keep up with everything, so we have decided that after next weeks Tags Challenge, CCC will be closing. We have had so much fun playing along with our Design Team and all of you - thanks so much for the support!!

So my last Cards Challenge is “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” … anything wintery, snowy or freezy goes!! Take a look at what I came up with!!

I am using a couple retired items on my card today. I still LOVE the Festive Flurry framelits from last year, and i thought the Silver Foil paper would be gorgeous to use with them! The awesome Mingle All the Way image fits so well in the 2-1/2” Circle Punch, and just layers beautifully onto my silver snowflake. So cute!! of course, I had to use some of the beautiful Silver and Snowflake Frosted Sequins to jazz it up. Love it! I used last years Winter Frost DSP for my simple background … love those stripes!!

Well that is all for me today! Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

CCC #052: December Challenge “Home for the Holidays"

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to our December Challenge! We are showcasing December Home Decor this month - come on over to Catherine and Cathy Create to see all the inspiration our Designers have for you!!

I thought a fun Christmas Ornament would be cute. So I made a cute 3D star using my Star Framelits. Love how it turned out!!

CUTE right!? I cut 3 of the 2nd largest start with the Under the Tree DSP. LOVE the heavy weight of that paper! I just scored them down the middle, and put them all together for this 3D star! The Red Glimmer Paper is so lovely with the Joy thinlit from the Wonderful Wreath framelit dies. Just added it with a couple glue dots. Cute! A 1/8” Hole punched in the top has my Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine so I can hang it on my tree. Cant wait to make more of these fun guys for my tree!!

Thanks a lot for coming by today. See you soon and Happy Stamping!!
