This was a very quick card to put together... in fact, I think it took me more time to decide on a paper to use than to put the entire card together. I have all of this wonderful winter scene paper from a pack from Stampin' Up! (retired)... the other side is all white and silver foil but sometimes I want to use these beautiful scenes.

Welcome to the December Blog Hop with Scrap 'n Stamp Canada! This month the team is playing the with Iconic Christmas dies from Concord & 9th. This is a great set of small Christmas dies... I hope you'll hop along to see what each member of the design team did with these dies!

If you've been here before, you know I love snowflakes. I was excited to see a snowflake in this die set... a simple one that could be cut out of a variety of papers. For the hop, I decided to play with some holographic cardstock I had in my stash. I cut a bunch of snowflakes and then started to play. I created the first card and had some snowflakes left over so I decided to make another card as well!
I loved the look of the holographic snowflakes on the black cardstock, but decided to try them on white as well. I honestly don't know which one I like more!

I love Christmas lights... and it's been wonderful seeing that more people have had them up early this year. I could sit in the dark by my Christmas tree watching the lights forever if I could. I was so excited when My Favorite Things came out with the Christmas lights stamps and dies last year... and since then I've purchased several different sizes and types of lights. For this card, I stamped the "string" and added die cut red and green lights.. then added a little white gel pen to create some dimension on each of the lights. I took a thin greeting stamp and curved it along the door of my Misti to sort of follow the shape of the string of lights.

I have quite the stash of Christmas patterned papers... and I decided it was time to start using them instead of just collecting them and waiting for the "right time" to use them. Am I the only one that buys pretty things and then doesn't want to use them? It's like I worry I'll never find anything else like it, or any else that I'll like.

I was gifted this awesome Merry Elfin' Christmas stamp last year and was so happy to have an idea to use it this year. Thank you to Catherine Pooler for coming out with these great elf stamps so I could use this other stamp LOL!

I saw this elf set from Catherine Pooler and ordered it the day it was released. The images are just so dang cute!!! I hope to get some more time to play with them, play around with colour combinations. I will admit I borrowed this card from an idea I saw on Pinterest.

Oh how I wish I had better photography and editing skills. This photo does *not* do this card justice. It is so very clean and crisp and wonderful. I am in love with this card...

I fell in love with the Birch Press ornament dies that came out this year... I ended up buying the basic set plus two other decorative sets.... I need more time in a day to play! Although I can't complain as I am on track to have all of my Christmas cards individual designs this year... for the first time ever! I sure hope I can pull it off!

Happy Friday, Friends! I am back with another card for Scrap 'n Stamp Canada, following along with the Random Acts of Cardness promtps. The prompt for today is "skating". I have this great My Favorite Things set that was screaming for ink... so glad I finally had a chance to play.
I think I need to work with this set some more... I had an idea of a scene in my head thanks to some ideas I saw on Pinterest, however I didn't execute the ideas all that well. But I tried...

I absolutely love this stamp set from Stampin' Up! The three sayings in it are a good size to be the focal point of a card and they are different from the usual "peace on earth" and "winter wonderland" stamps that are out there.

I have a lot of Christmas patterned paper... and maybe I bought even more to add to my stash this year. I don't understand why I love patterned paper so much since I also love clean and simple cards. The two just don't really go together, you know?
At any rate, I need to use some of this paper... I need to make my stash a little smaller.

I have a thing for snowmen... I just think they are so freakin' adorable. So I couldn't pass up this stamp when I saw it at a garage sale a year or two ago. I used a portion of it for this card... and have no idea who makes the image.

I'm back with another Gnome.... when you cut the image you can basically create two different gnomes by cutting it out of two different patterned papers and mixing and matching. It some ways it would be nice if the pieces were all separate, but they're not so you get a second card.

We are almost at the end of the year for challenges with AAACards. There is only one more left after this one before we start up again in 2021. This is a great clean and simple challenge and I hope you'll play along! Link up your cards HERE for your chance to win a prize from Uniko as well as become a guest designer for an upcoming challenge.
I absolutely fell in love with the die I used on the card I'm sharing today. I just *had* to have it when I had a quick stop in to Scrapendipity here in Calgary. They have exciting news in the form of a new, second location, opening in the next few weeks!
