Joy!

Hello, all!  I've been playing around with a bunch of new stuff lately and I've made two cards that are similar in colors and are both holiday cards!!! JOY!  Oh, and that is the sentiment I've used on both. :)  I created the backgrounds for these cards using the same technique and I LOVE how they turned out.  Basically, all you do is dry emboss your paper then stamp in the slots...take a peek!

Here's the first card I made~

For these fabulous challenges~




I used an alphabet stamp set by an unknown company, large rhinestones by Studio 112, and all other supplies used are by Stampin' Up!.

Here's the second card~

For these fabulous challenges~


(I have music motif hexagons and 
was inspired by Joy To The World!)


I've used stamps by Inspired By Stamping, a clear glitter gel pen by Sakura, large rhinestones by Studio 120, a border punch by EK Success, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Thank you so much for taking time to come and take a peek at my creation!  I hope that you join in the fun with these amazing challenges and that you're inspired to create something today!  HUGS and merry stamping to you all!

love the idea of stamping between the embossing... will have to try it sometime soon...

Both of these are fantastic, Mynette! It's not that easy to stamp those motifs in the embossed recesses! I could show you some examples of that gone wrong, LOL! You've done a wonderful job and with cutting the little hexagons too! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

Oh, good for you, getting some more Christmas cards done! These two each have a fun vibe, and love the muted kraft with the red and green.

So glad you linked up some more with us this month at IBS!

I love you hexagon background Mynette. A fabulous way to include the music image. The wee frilly ribbon, circle border and wonderful sentiment finish the card beautifully. Thanks so much for joining us at Merry Monday

I really like both of the cards, but am especially fond of the honeycomb one. Love the ruffled ribbon and the scallop edging. They are great!
