For my card today, I choose to use the card design from our Make It From Your Heart, vol 2 how-to book…and used Pattern 27. 

Take a look at the FUN ornaments!!!

The Trim the Tree stamp set is an A-size stamp set - meaning it’s ONLY $6.95
What else makes this stamp set special?  It’s compatible with our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge!!  Wahoo - it cuts out the shapes for me!!

AND….did you see the bitty sparkles that surround the ornaments?? 

Yes, we have NEW Holiday Sparkle shapes that coordinate with this stamp set!!! These shapes fit PERFECTLY over top of your stamped images from this stamp set!!

How did I make the ornaments “string”…I cut my RED Shimmer Tape into skinny pieces and adhered them behind the ornaments!

Did you notice the red chevron “ribbon”…actually this is one of our 6 NEW patterns of washi tape!!

This Sparkle & Shine washi tape, comes in a set with 2 other washi’s for a total of 3 tapes…and for just $14.95!!  Something to take note…the “gray” washi - is ACTUALLY a SILVER washi…it has a shine to it!!  LOVE this tape!!!

PLEASE NOTE*****EACH roll has 15 yards of washi tape on them!!  (the gift guide has  misprint & mentioned that they only have 5 yds each)

The “Christmas Cheer” piece on the card, comes from our new Sparkle & Shine My Complements - the pre-designed, colored chipboard shapes! They are just beautiful and can be added to so many projects!!

They are ONLY $5.95, and you receive the TWO 6”x12” sheets!  They are just BEAUTIFUL!!

The paper that I used, is ONE of the designs (out of 6) that is included in our Sparkle & Shine paper packet.  The PERFECT holiday printed paper that uses the color Ruby, Juniper & Slate!!  LOVE!!
