♥ Shabby, Vintage Christmas Garland ♥


Can you believe only 39 more days to go until Christmas ?! It's coming fast! I keep seeing paper garlands on Instagram so I decided to make one myself only with a little twist! Of course. I used some fabulous dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders to make mine!


I added mine to a tree for the pics but I think I'm actually going to put it on my mantel. We shall see! It will look pretty on either. I used a few different Die sets to make it. I used the Charming Christmas Boughs Etched Dies, the Charming Snowflake Doily Etched Dies, the Yuletide Snowflakes Etched Dies and the reindeer and JOY cutout from the Charming Round Tag Etched Die Set.


After layering and gluing them all together, I added lots of pearls and vintage buttons to them. I then hot glued a piece of twine to the backs of them and then tied them to a string of Large pearls (Michaels). I added the snowflakes in between the larger die cuts.

 
It was so fun and easy to make. And as long as you pack it correctly, it can be enjoyed year after year.

Have a wonderful day!

♥ Glimmer Hot Foil ♥


Have you seen the New Glimmer Hot Foil System from Spellbinders?? OMG I am hooked! It is so fun and easy to make shimmery, professional looking foiled cards with this machine! And all of the fabulous plates that you can use with it are just beautiful! For this card, I am using the Warm Winter Wishes Holiday Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. The snowman, sentiment and snowflakes are all on one plate! So you just let it warm up on the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and then run it through your Platinum Die Cutting Machine or other approved machine and you have this amazing foiled image! Easy Peasy!!

     
Look at all of that shimmer!


Becca from Amazing Paper Grace also has her own line of Glimmer Hot Foil Plates! And they are simply stunning!! You can find them HERE! I will have some amazing cards using them up real soon! I am also using the Hemstitch Squares Etched Dies by Becca on this card.


Hope you have an AMAZING Day!

♥ Deck the Halls ♥


Hi there! Stopping in today with a shimmery holiday card to show you. I used 2 different Die sets by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. The bottom die is from the Charming Christmas Boughs Etched Dies Set. I simply die cut it 3 times and layered them using foam dots for lots of dimension. The ornament hanging from the bow is also from this beautiful set.


I then used the frame die from the Sentimental Christmas Stamp and Die Set to layer over the first die cuts. I layered 2 of these, again, using foam dots. I then added some chunky glitter to the die cuts to give it an "icy" look. The "Deck the Halls" sentiment is from the Charming Tag Sentiments Stamp Set.

Have a wonderful day!
