Merriest Christmas to You!

ED: This is the first of two posts today, so I hope you'll scroll down for more crafty goodness.

Hola Chickies!!

Happy Tuesday to you all!! I received the most yummolicious box of goodies from Julie at ABC Toys & Crafts this weekend, and I couldn't wait to jump in and start crafting!

Today's card features a darling Penny Black clear stamp set called Giving and Receiving. There were so many fun and funky images in this set, I had a hard time choosing which ones to use. I finally decided on the tree and this fabulous sentiment. I used my Labels 5 Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug to create the aperture for the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark, and then heat embossed using white embossing powder. The designer paper for the card front and the tree is from an amazing K & Co. holiday pad called Swell Noel (Julie must have sent me the last one that she had in stock, but I'm pretty sure that she can order it in if you really want it). Isn't it super retro?! It reminds me of my grandma's silver Christmas tree that changed colors when the spinny light rotated. Remember those? LOL

STAMPS: Giving & Receiving (Penny Black)
INK: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Versamark
PAPER: Swell Noel DP (K & Co.), Hot Fudge CS (Poptone), Red Hot CS (Poptone)
ACCESSORIES: Labels 5 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Button, Self-adhesive rhinestones (Hero Arts), 3-D Squares (EK Success), ribbon, Quickie Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts)

Thanks for stopping by!
