Stampin' Up Delightful Decorations

This set is so much fun. I think this will be my Christmas card this year. Stampin' Up! has an Ornament punch to make it easy to use the Delightful Decorations stamp set. I got the idea for this card from Martha Lucia Gomez. You can see her beautiful card here. She is also in a blog tour named Inkspired 09. You can hop on the tour on the right side bar logo. I have included the one I cased from her card below the close up. I found out that Lisa Freeman had made the original card I cased below a month ago to swap at Founder's Circle so I wanted to give her credit for her design. Here is a link to her design that inspired the above card. I love the bow she has on hers.

I wanted to show you the beautiful shimmer on the first card. I took an old Stampin' Mist bottle and rinsed it out. Then I added alcohol and a small amount of the Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint. You need a fine mist bottle to make this work. It is so beautiful in real life. I wish you could see it. The shimmer is hard to photograph.

Supplies used:

Delightful Decorations and Holiday and Wishes (retired), Ornament Punch, Elegant Bouquet and Finial Press Impressions Embossing Folders. Old Olive marker, Real Red and Old Olive Classic Ink Pads, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Silver card stock, Mistletoe Ribbon Originals, Fine Cosmo glitter.
