Time to Stamp Tuesday Global Design Project 162

Hi Everyone, Thanks for stopping in today for my Time to Stamp Tuesday. I wanted to take a few minutes to share my project for the Global Design Project 162 (GDP). They post challenges weekly and I love to enter using some of my favorite Stampin' Up! products. I was recently looking through a magazine and noticed that the most trending color are hues of purple. That makes this project perfect.
This design can lend itself into all sorts of occasions. I'm sticking with winter because I feel the weather changing and it's been snowing in the mountains out where I live. I love the Blizzard Thinlit die. It can be used to cut out lots of snowflakes, or use the Embossing Mats like I did for the Highland Heather embossed layer on my card.

The Snowflake Trinkets are part of the limited edition Snowflake Showcase that is starting on November 1st. I recently created a similar project for a monthly stamp group, so I wanted to simply change up …
Wonderful Wednesday Global Design Project 161
Hi Everyone, I'm glad you stopped in today for my Wonderful Wednesday Blog. I'm a bit late today, but found the time to get on and say hello. This week I'm participating in the Global Design Project 161. This week it's all about the color in the challenge. 
The 3 colors for this challenge are my all time fall favorites! For my project, I used the new and upcoming Snowflake Showcase Stamp sets and more. Included in the upcoming promotion, there are 2 limited edition stamp sets, 1 coordinating die set that works with both stamp sets, snowflake trinkets, and Whisper White Velvet cardstock. 

For this project, I used the glitter gems and colored the silver ones with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blend for the center of the flower. The leaves were stamped in Old Olive on the velvet cardstock. I then die-cut them with the thinlit. From there I dragged the velvet cardstock on the Old Olive ink pad to get some darker spots for contrast. H…

Wonderful Wednesday Wow Holiday Cards
Hi Everyone, Welcome to my Wonderful Wednesday post. Today I'm continuing to share some WOW projects from my recent Holiday Catalog Swap. So many demonstrators participated in this swap and they really outdid themselves. The above picture is my sister-n-law helping me begin to sort all the groups into bags. Once they are all sorted, we then swap the cards. 
The projects I'm sharing today come from the Still Night Bundle found in the Holiday Catalog. This is a wonderful stamp set with coordinating thinlits for many occasions.

Susan Carlson created this beautiful card using the thinlits for the branch, owl, and stars. I love the color choices she used.

Jana' DeMore created this card. This project uses a couple of different embossing folders. The black portion was embossed using the Sparkle Textured Embossing Folder and the other part was embossed using the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder. The owl was stamped, colored, and then die-cut using…
