This card was made using the Christmas Pines bundle in the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

I am SO excited! This is my first blog hop to participate in. My team members, “The Glitter Queens,” invited me. This will be a 3 day blog hop so be sure to stop by tomorrow and Wednesday to see what special items we’ve chosen for you.
I love, love, love, to make Lollies or Rosettes. This past Christmas I made a lot of them. I added ribbon and hung them on gifts (see photo above), I did a class for them, and I handed them out and decorated my tree with them. Everyone loved them!
Unfortunately, I only have a few left and I didn’t take pictures of the ones I gave away.
They don’t all have to be round! (As I placed this on the red background to take a picture today, I thought, “What a pretty card this would make.”)
Also this past Christmas I made a bunch of Post-It note holders out of chip board and coasters. I made so many in fact, that I still have quite a stash of them. The one above is my very first one. I cut the chip board and sanded and inked the edges. It is quite a lot of work unless you are only going to do one or two. I made quite a few this way until my coasters arrived!
The coaster Post-It note holders were easier since they were already cut. This shows the inside. The 3×3″ Post-It notes work great.
The two above aren’t decorated with Lollies but are just as pretty.
It is so much fun trying different patterns of paper. Also, decorating the tops with different embelishments.
This is a good way to use up some of that retired DSP you have. I used the Stampin’ Up! Rosette bigz XL die to make my Lollies but you can also get the same affect with the score board. Just score every 1/4″. I used 2 strips about 11 1/2″ long and 2″ wide to make 1 Lolly for my Post-It note covers.

When I saw this “Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit” in the Holiday catalog I knew this was the card I wanted to make for my Christmas cards. But, I make about 75 cards. And at $9.95 for 8 cards that would be about $93.00 to make all of my cards from this kit… A little pricey! So, what I did was, I cut the DSP that came in the kit in half. I was then able to stretch the kit to make twice as many cards.
This is my version with the DSP that I used from the kit. I think they both turned out very nice. I have gotten lots of compliments on them. In my version I used Whisper White, Costal Cabana & Island Indigo card stock. I also used Basic Rhinestones and the Fancy Fan embossing folder.
They are very similar yet very different.
Inside I stamped the Festive Flurry snowflakes with the sentiment. I would love to hear your comments so if you leave a comment on this post I will send out cards to 5 people. Thanks for looking!
This is the card that I made for my husband for Christmas. I saw this card on Pinterest and fell in love with it! I didn’t change anything from the original. It was so beautiful that there was nothing to change. It uses Whisper White & Island Indigo card stock and silver Glimmer paper. Also used was the Festive Flurry stamp set and matching framelits dies as well as the Window Frames dies. There is a lot of layering and cutting on this card. It’s not a card I would want to make a lot of but for that special someone it is well worth the effort. It measures 5 1/2 X 5 1/2″.
I love bling and Stampin’ Up’s! glimmer paper really delivers. So much prettier in person.
