Deck the halls

Hi friends.  I am sharing a card today that was inspired by a great new sketch Maureen added to The Classroom at StampNation.  I just love the sketch.  Thank you, Maureen. 

This card was also inspired by the colors in the photo at Fusion Card challenge and CASology's cue word: Snowflakes.

I used my new silver Hero Arts shadow ink for the silver ornaments.  This ink is so beautiful in person. 

I also want to share a sneak peek of one of the 5 cards I created for my Trends Article that went up on StampNation today!  I featured Embossing paste & Stencils.  If you haven't tried embossing paste yet, what are you waiting for?  It is so much fun and you get amazing results.  I would love for you to join StampNation, if you aren't already a member, and check out the rest of my cards and my article.  There is a lot more that StampNation offers other than my Trends Articles.  There are....

  • Over 370 video tutorials
  • Over 100 challenges
  • CAS Classroom
  • And, so much more!

  6. Love these! That first one is so crisp and cute!

  7. I've been considering trying out the Hero Arts shadow inks. What did you think of them? Did they stamp as well as I've heard from people who sell them?
    LOVE your sneak peek. I must go check out your new trends article at StampNation. :)

  8. LOVE this design, so unique!!! Kristie, would LOVE to see LOTS more of you, (hoping you apply for Fusion DT! as your work is a showstopper as always for me to see on CASology!!! I literally grabs me and says, go comment NOW! So hey, love this card!!

  9. I actually dreamed about this card last night (no joke). You know your a true crafter dream about your friends cards ;) Anyway, I'm CASEing this!

  10. Love the curves....awesome job getting your sentiment to the exact same curve as the garland! Splitting the red with the wee strip of white is so striking and also creates more yummy movement on your card!
