I hope you are all well and enjoying this special time of the year.
I have something with white lately. Although I am hoarder when it comes to paper pads I tend to use a lot of white cardstock. 
On the first card I added a personal favorite...a wreath:

And I think the card did not need much more except for a few sequins:

My second features my deer :) My sister Jacqueline bought it for me at John Lewis when she was in London.

A piece of silver tinsel and white cardstock; that's all:

A bit of Sweet Pea stamps:

Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS) is a small home-based business in Michigan. SPS does not work from a brick and mortar shop. You will find SPS only on line at Sweet Pea Stamps. We pride ourselves in quality and value. Lynette McAnsh, Owner, is a perfectionist. If the product is not top quality, she will not offer it.

Lynette stated her small business selling D.O.T.S. in the 90s. In 1999 she started “Designs, Ink’d” and sold that business in 2004 due to health and family issues. Missing the love of running a small business, and with her children older, she started Sweet Pea Stamps in April 2009. Now, 5 years later, we are representing over 30 artists with digital images and rubber stamps. She does work alone, sometimes with the help of family; her turn-around time may be longer than the big companies. You will always be met with friendly and professional demeanor and her merchandise will always be the highest quality.

Other online places to visit SPS are the Facebook page Sweet Pea Stamps, and our Facebook group, Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans. SPS has a monthly blog challenge at One Sweet Challenge and daily inspiration from SPS’s designers at Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps blog. We hope you join use.

I hope you will be able to play along before it's Christmas!

Just popping in to share another christmas card; this one came together quite easy. Everything on this card is from a card kit; the only thing I added are the sequins. I had to add them for a little bling:)

Stickers, die cuts and patterned paper are from the "Oh Deer" collection from Fancy Pants.

Enjoy your day; it's  cold and windy here so
 I continue to make a few other christmas cards.
Thank for stopping by,

Custom order


After making a all my cards for the custom order I thought it would be nice to share the photos and a bit about the process.
I was asked to design and make christmas cards; 350 cards. The honor and making them was so much fun. I came up with two cards; both stamped and adding a little bling and twine as a finishing touch. 
The whole process was cut into steps. My husband has been a fab help to cut all the cards from cardstock. And all the silver stars.  After that I came in :)
I chose a stamp set of snowflakes in various sizes and a wreath The snowflakes were stamped in my favorite color scheme. The wreath had a classic touch; I love these berries.
I picked three shades of ink and started with stamping the biggest snowflake. All 175, after that the middle size snowflake and finally the smallest one.  Next step was stamping the sentiment and on the back a "handmade" stamp.
The wreath is a two step; the branches and the berries. 175 wreaths, 175 berries, 175 sentiments and 175 "handmade" stamps.
I went on a roll a stamped away:) I used a foam mat beneath the cardstock for all the stamping. Worked great!
After all the stamping was done I added sequins on my snowflake cards and the stars on my wreath cards.
The final touch was adding a piece of tinsel/twine.  Looking back it went really fast. 
The snowflakes and Christmas sentiment are from Stampin Up, The wreath and the berries are from Papertrey Ink. For the snowflakes I used SU Sosft Sky, Baja Breeze(retired) and Lost Lagoon. All sentiments in Memento Tuxedo black.
The wreath is stamped in SU Sahara Sand and Real Red
The star die I used is from Paper Smooches.
The wreath card is delivered with red/white twine but I don't have a decent photo of the final design.The wreath card you see was the design I came up with in September.
I  want to thank Miranda (the owner) from Bij Oma Dee. She has been a great help to order all the cardstock, sequins and foam dots.

Here they are; the light is not perfect and the photos were taken on different days:
