In the Holiday mood!!!

The weekend sure flew by fast, and here we are, Monday once again!  Today I have this holiday card in pretty blues and reds, love this color combination ;o)  I used the "Clearly Beautiful Ornament Set" from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, this set comes with a coordinating die, so it's super easy to die cut your ornament and stamp with the coordinating acrylic stamp, no more having to cut them out with scissors.  

Stamps; Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Clearly Beautiful Ornament Set, 2 Pine Cones)
Inks; Momento Tuxedo Black, VersaMark Watermark, Distress Ink (Aged Mahogany, Broken China)
Paper; Patterned paper (Basic Grey, Fancy Pants Designs)
Other; Martha Stewart corner & border punch, silver pearls, ribbon, Ice Stickles, silver embossing powder.

Stamp pine branch with broken china distress ink starting on upper right corner of patterned paper, ink edges of paper using this same ink.  Cut three ornaments with the ornament die, stamp ornaments with watermark ink and heat emboss with silver embossing powder, ink edges of ornaments with distress ink.  Stamp snowflake image with watermark ink and heat emboss with silver embossing powder, hand cut and adhere to ornament with pop dots.  Stamp sentiment with black Momento ink on patterned paper, stamp some pine branches with broken china ink around the sentiment, ink edges with watermark ink and heat emboss with silver powder.  Make a frame with the Martha Stewart corner and border punches and adhere to background paper.  Stamp the pine cone image with watermark ink on red patterned paper  and heat emboss, assemble everything as pictured with pop dots.  Add a flower, ribbon, and silver pearls for the final touch.
