Joy!

 

Happy Monday, Peeps!

 

I had such a great weekend!  I hope you had the same!!  I got to stamp all day on Saturday, so that just makes my heart go pitter patter.  I stamped until 1:00 a.m. – yikes!  LOL  But I was in hog heaven.  I got caught up on all but one of my DT projects, and added a few extras in there to share with you very, very soon.

Joy Tools Challenge

Today’s my day to share an ABC Toys & Crafts project with you.  This week, the ABC Design Team is focusing on any and all of the tools that ABC Toys & Crafts carries.  Well, I know you all know how much I LURRRVVEEE my Pink Slice, especially now that I can use my Hands Free Kit.  Well, my love of this machine was bumped up once again when the new Noel Layered Design Card popped into the store.  OMGosh . . . amazing!!  The new Noel Layered Design Card now creates images that can be layered upon each other.  So it’s not all silhouettes like the previous design cards.  It can do amazing things, I tell ya!

 

So I’ve created a card featuring one of the many beautiful snowflakes that are included in the Noel Layered Design Card.  I layered the two designs together with a felt snowflake (created with the new SU die cut), button and some yummy gems – the Hero Arts Gemstones in Teal and Citron.    And, of course, my handy 3D Dots were used to pop all the layers up to create a super dimensional snowflake.  What do you think?

 

The sentiment is from a new Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set called Get Merry.  Awesome set, people!!  No stamp collection should be without this set, as the sentiments are so versatile and useful for any and all holiday cards that need to be made.  Get it for your collection – you’ll thank me later.  I promise!!  LOL  Of course, I finished off the card with my sweet little Janome Sew Mini.  The DP is some new Bo Bunny that magically appeared on my front door (shhhhh!  LOL) one day.  The embossed snowflakes were created using the new snowflake embossing folder from SU – I just ran some vellum in the embossing folder through my Cuttlebug.

Well, that’s it for me today, chicas!  I have a fun day of shopping with Grandma Debbie in anticipation of Baby Brecken’s arrival on Wednesday.  Woohoo!!  I have missed that little munchkin like nobody’s business!  Cannot wait to hold him in my arms again.  Mmmmmmm.  We’re also going to friends’ for dinner.  Should be a great day – hope yours is the same!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Lovely card - good job! I'm thinking it's time to update your "About Me" in your profile...I'm 27 and Amy is no longer in college! :)
