Pals Blog Hop "Wish List" with Christmas Collectibles Card

Welcome to the start of the final Pals Blog Hop of 2013. This month we are showcasing projects featuring tools and supplies that should be on every crafters wish list. You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Kerry Willard Bray at stampgoodness on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full  lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
I always have a ton of things on my Wish List! I thought that I would share a card with you using a stamp set that WAS on my wish list, that I now have, but never inked it up until now!!!
I did some heat embossing on this card so it's really bright and shinny! I had to take a few photos just to get the angle right to show the sliver paper and the silver embossing.

Another thing you can add to your wish list if you don't have it already is the "Winter Frost" DSP. Stampin' Up! has even been having a hard time keeping up with the orders on this paper! I just bought my third pack of it myself! Behind the ornament you can see one of the papers has Silver with Costal Cabana mosaic pattern on it... Love that one!

I thought that the "Holly Jolly" banner stamp was perfect to hang the ornament from. The circle behind the ornament is a 2 inch circle.
This is the best picture that I got of the silver embossing.
Stamp Sets:
Christmas Collectibles
A Banner Christmas
Ink and Paper Colors:
Pool Party, White, Silver Paper, Coastal Cabana
1/2 and 2 inch Circle punches, Ornament punch, Silver 1/8 inch ribbon, VersaMark ink, Silver embossing powder,

Festive Flurry Card

Hi Blogging Friends!
I have Jury Duty this next week, I already called in and I don't have to go in on Monday. This is the 4th or 5th time I have been summoned, but I have never been called in. IDK this just might be it?! lol I will keep you all up to date to see what happens.
I made this card with a layout that I have used before. I really like this layout it does have a lot of pieces, but it goes together fast! So its great for a club or class card. If you would like the measurements for this card here is a link to a past card with the info.
I used the Framelits on the "Pool Party" snowflake and the cut out by hand the "Island Indigo" part. These Framelits are my favorite! If you don't have them yet... PUT them on your List. Or even better then that go right to my Online Store and get them today!

I took out some of my Retired Christmas stuff to finish this card.
Stamp Set: Greetings of the Season
Big Shot: Decorative Strip Northern Frost
The Northern Frost has 8 different snowflakes, sizes and shapes I love it!

This is the one we did in a class, I wanted to use the glitter paper to give it some Bling... But wow it might have had to much Sparkle! lol

Wow look how much it Sparkles! It's blinding! lol
Everything on this card is Stampin' Up!

One More Sneak Peek at photos from my Arts and Craft Show
This is a cute little wood Gingerbread Girl that I painted. My Husband cut a bunch of them out for me. I also used a little carving tool around the edges of the paint colors to give it a primitive look. The Table Runners are made by my friend Rachel Collman they are $25.00 and she made a bunch of them and they are just Stinkin' Cute! (btw I bought the Owl one!) The show was in Hansville Washington, at the community center.
Next week I am doing a Craft Show at Gordon Elementary its in Kingston Washington. I would love to see you there! If you live in the area come by my both and say Hi! 
Thanks for looking at my cute stuff
Love to hear your comments!

Festive Flurry Christmas Card and Sneek Peek of Christmas Show

Hi Blogging Friends!!!
I was up all night making cards last night, its just nice to have some quiet time. I am doing another Arts and Crafts gift show next weekend and had to make more cards because I sold so many that I need to make more!!! I am totally in love with the Snow flake stamp set and Framelits set called "Festive Flurry". This card turned out so Pretty, I don't think you can go wrong with this set.
I used the DSP for the first snowflake, silver paper for the second and I stamped the third image in "Pool Party". I toped it off with a "Frosted Finishes" that are in the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog.

I used the Joy stamp from "A Banner Christmas" then cut it out. I put the banner down first with dimensionals first, then put the ribbon behind it with glue dots. The silver ribbon is kind of stiff and only wanted to go in a straight line. lol
This is one of the pictures from my Gift show that I did last weekend. Look at my cute Owl made with some cute Peacock colored fabric and also a the table runner underneath the card and Owl was made by my friend and downline Rachel Collman. I was selling this card for $4.00 but most of my cards are $3.50.

Festive Flurry
A Banner Christmas
Ink and Paper Colors:
Island indigo, White, Pool party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda bay
