I couldn’t do a Facebook Live this week due to travel, so I made a tutorial video in its place. In the video I demonstrate two different techniques for making this night sky background with Brusho Colour Crystals (coming in the Occasions catalog!). I’m also using the new Waterfront stamp set, also coming in the Occasions catalog.
Check out the video below to see how I made these fantastic backgrounds!

Good morning! Look at that gorgeous paper. Just look at it! Sometimes you make a card that you can’t stop looking at. For you, this might not be that card, but for me it is. Bold, bright, and blingy! That’s my jam.
I’m playing along with the Christmas Joy theme challenge at Global Design Project this week.
This piece of paper is probably my favorite piece in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack, because of all the coloring possibilities. I started with coloring the berries/leaves/olives/whatever those things are, and I was thinking of coloring the branches but thought they looked so striking left in white. I colored the berries (for lack of knowing what they are) with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I started with Light, then colored the tips with Dark, then went back over the whole thing with Light again. I went over the dark areas of each berry with my Wink of Stella pen so they shimmer.
My card base is not Cherry Cobbler, but Real Red. I’ve found that the Dark Cherry Cobbler marker is more Cherry Cobbler, but the Light one is a perfect match for Real Red. On top of the card base is a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP was originally 4″ x 5-1/4″, and I cut off the edge with the decorative edge die from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits. I just love that little extra detail! The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments, and I wanted it without the “from our family to yours”, so I stamped the whole thing in Real Red, cut it out with the Stitched Shapes circle, and then covered the “from our family to yours” part with some Year of Cheer washi tape. The white branches are cut with the Pretty Pines thinlits. Before adding the sentiment to the card, I popped in some Silver Mini Sequin Trim (tacked down with a Glue Dot), then put the sentiment on Dimensionals. The pines are glued to the center of the sentiment, and then I added some Rhinestones, which I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends marker.

Hello! I hope all is well with y’all today.
I decided to join in with Freshly Made Sketches today — I haven’t played along with them recently and just loved this week’s sketch, so this was a great time to jump back in.
My card base is Garden Green (gasp! I know!). I cut a Real Red panel, then embossed the gorgeous Winter Wonder snowflake on the bottom two-thirds. I sponged Real Red ink over the snowflake, just for a little extra depth. Then I sponged all the way around the edge of the Real Red cardstock. The paper (which actually has the words “Oh! what fun” on it) is from the Merry Music Specialty designer series paper. I cannot get enough of this paper!
I thought the “oh, what fun” sentiment from the Oh, What Fun stamp set was pretty perfect for this card. I heat embossed it in silver, then added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper behind it. The snowflake is from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits, and I finished off the card with a Clear Faceted Gem. I love these things!
I stamped the inside with a stamp from Hang Your Stocking and also added a strip of the Merry Music paper.

Today I have a very simple card for you. The card base is Berry Burst. I added a piece of Merry Little Christmas paper, after sponging some Lemon-Lime Twist ink onto the paper. That’s my favorite thing about this paper. Each sheet has a side with Old Olive and a side that is only black and white. And you can color the black and white side however you like.
I stamped the sentiment from the Ready for Christmas stamp set in Berry Burst ink. I LOVE the LL Twist / Berry Burst combo for Christmas this year! I cut out the sentiment and the LL Twist piece behind it with with the Layering Circles framelits. I usually use the scalloped circles with the circles from the Stitched Shapes framelits, but I really like using two of the scalloped circles together, too. The Basic Black cardstock is cut out with the Lots of Labels framelits.
All of the items I used in my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store (linked supply list is at the end of this post). Make sure to use the October Host Code (below), and I’ll send you extra goodies!
