Merry Monday ~ Warm Wishes

My demonstrator pre-order for the new Stampin' UP! holiday catalog is in the house, and I had some fun playing with my new goodies.


I'm linking up this sweet Christmas card with Freshly Made Sketches.  I saw the sketch and new it would be perfect to test out my new tree punch and matching stamp set.

The clear stamps were so much fun to play with that I decided to decorate the inside too.


My plan was to stamp the little bird on my card, but I forgot to do that before adding dimensionals and had to come up with a plan B.  I stamped him in Real Red on White cardstock then fussy cut him out and popped him on a dimensional.  It was fairly easy, considering I'm not great at fussy cutting.


The Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin ribbon and Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh add the perfect finishing touches.
