Happy Holidays

Its beginning to look alot like Christmas, every where I look. How exciting... we are only a week away from Christmas. I am super excited to spend time with my family. I luv the feeling of watching my kids open up their gifts. I'm looking forward to a jam packed kitchen and making it all work. Take a moment and tell me what you luv about this time of Celebration.

I have some more gorgeous projects to share with you from Linda and Roree. I get excited every time we can place our products in others hands and see the amazing creations that they make with them.

Like this amazing Reindeer card from Roree.

She used a combination of our Stardream cardstock and Curious Iridescent 8.5 x 11 Cardstock 89 lb Cover weight CRYOGEN WHITE .

Linda the master of some really cool techniques created this amazing Thank You card. She used CutCardstock's deckle edge card paper. She sprayed it with a peach colored Glimmer Mist first and used her finger to cover the entire paper and then layed a Glimmer Screen over that and sprayed with Fully Purple Glimmer Mist. When she lifted up the plastic screen, she was left with a design. Linda says "This paper took the Glimmer Mist so wonderfully". The flowers were already peach, but I sprayed them with the Glimmer Mist too for some added sparkle.

In January we will have some fabulous designs coming from Vianney Galarza. She sent me a sneak peek and they are some pretty fabulous cards with great ideas for invitations.

Guest designers Roree Rumph and Linda Beeson

I am so sorry I am a day late on blogging. I got a really bad body cold with the chills and fever uuugghhh its been horrible. I'm finally just now making my self get up and Blog.

I have some Beautiful projects I'm excited to show you , from these 2 super talented designers.
Here are some beautiful snowflake tags from Linda. She used the Curious Metallic in Bronze Ore for the base of the tags. She than used the Curious Metallic in the Hades color for the punched out snowflakes. This paper was just perfect to use Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist on - the end result looks like RUST Linda said. The snowflakes were punched out of this when it was dry.I ran a piece of the Curious Metallic in White Gold through a Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing plate for the top portions of the tags. This paper was just made to be embossed !


Next we have a fabulous mini tin album made by Roree.Roree used our Curious Metallic Purple Haze for the base and for the snowflakes she used the Curious Metallic Lustre

Roree also created this gorgeous box and card set.

She used Emerald and Malachite Stardream for the box . For the heart on the card she used Star Dream Ruby . For the card background she embossed our Cryogen White Curious Iridescent.

Ill finish this post with a fantastic card from Linda.


The base to this card is Amethyst Stardream Metallic cardstock. She cut the Copper Stardream Metallic cardstock with a Spellbinder Nestabilities die for the center piece and the snowflake is also a Spellbinder nestabilities die cut from the Crystal Stardream Metallic cardstock.These Nestabilities dies are meant to cut and the dry emboss and this paper worked so well for both of these.

I hope you enjoyed these projects as much as I did. I have a few more created by them that I will post by the 15th.

Have a Blessed Day, Norma Kennedy

Once again Thanks to all who entered. I know what its like to put your heart into your work with hopes that some one recognizes not just your creative ability but your passion and luv for the art. So when I say I truly appreciate each and every entry I mean it ! Keep an eye out for future contest and keep sending me your amazing work.

Well I was going to wait and post on the 5th all of the work from our Guest Designers which I still will do but when Lisa sent me this card I knew I had to share it right away. This is like the perfect Christmas/Holiday card to send to family. This sweet adorable little baby is her grandson and I am in luv with this card. Linda used our Star Dream Metallic Gatefold card in the color Jupiter as her base. She than printed the photo directly on the Cryogen White in Curious Iridescent cardstock and the look is just amazing. She said the finished look is just amazing with some sparkle coming from the photo. The photo is matted with the Stardream Metallic Emerald cardstock and the snowflakes were punched from the white Curious Metallic Lustre.

I cannot wait to try printing a photo on some of the Cryogen White and am wondering why I never thought of this myself. I have been told that the Cryogen White works beautifully with Copics so now I have 2 techniques to try. Thank you Linda for this fabulous idea !
