Patterned Pines

Enough about the 12 Days of Holidays Sale and on to the cards I have been making mostly in my head for a few weeks inspired by Craftin'Caro who blog you can visit here . Dunja turned me on to this hostess level one set from the Holiday mini catalogue! As a rule I don't get super excited about the hostess sets because it disappoints alot of my friends and customers when they find out they need to host a party to get the stamps. You can however collect orders from your friends or families to equal $200 or more and get hostess benefits that way. I would highly recommend that route. But back to the cards. I used the following three colours of cardstock and inks: Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery with a dash of Kraft cardstock a dusting of Whisper White Craft Ink. I also used clear and white embossing powders with Versamark. For accessories I used silver cord, my pokey thing{some call it an awl}, my Stampin'Up! mat pack with the fresh favorites buttons and a corn

I love this countdown to Christmas Calendar I made with Chris at Cherish the Thought in Port Moody. We used a drill! such a thrill. I am working on another one for a Christmas gift with the Frosty Day papers, Felt Flurries and Chocolate Satin Ribbon shown here. So far I have cut the papers and sprayed my box with homemade Shimmer mist! Love the colours! Guess what? All these products are on our Clearance Rack right now as well. Watch and see!
