SSC262 Sparkle of the Season

Happy Monday peeps! I have been remiss in using some of my new goodies from the holiday catalog, so I sat down yesterday and tried to remedy that.  I used the pretty Tidings of Christmas DSP and the Sparkle of the Season bundle, along with the sketch from Sunday Stamps:

And here we go:

I struggled a bit with the wreath; it's a little labor-intensive to diecut all the wee little leafy pieces, and it really didn't look very Christmasy until I added some red rhinestones, but I'll keep playing with it.  I love the has LOTS of images for fall and winter stamping and I love the sentiments.  I used Soft Succulent and Sahara Sand for the leaves, then did some marker-stamping for the "berry" images:

I used the stitched rectangle die from Ornate Layers dies, making it smaller by repositioning it and  running it through the Big Shot twice.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red; the offset panel was Cherry Cobbler.  I think this is such a sweet inside sentimen too:

I have stampers coming this evening to make Christmas cards, so I'm gonna scoot!  Thanks for popping in today!

Uncle Kevin and Aunt Kristy gave Cassidy an early birthday present; she loves Legos and had been wanting the New York City skyline one:

Stay tuned to see the finished project!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Beautiful card. I think your wreath looks great and I love the papers. I bet Cassidy has fun with her new Legos set. Have a great week. TFS

I forgot when Cassidy's birthday is but I'm thinking August? I hope I had yours written down in the proper slot this year. I messed up all my calendars! I love this DSP!

Gorgeous! I am working up my next class using this suite so I just had to pin this to my inspiration board! Love the wreath and those fab papers. Almost as much as Cassidy’s excitement for her new Lego - can’t beat it!

Beautiful papers, and the wreath front-and-center is the perfect use of the sketch! Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps this week.

Wow, LeAnne, what a beautiful Christmas card! The wreath was worth the effort, it's lovely along with the pretty dip. So glad you had time to join us at Sunday Stamps and I hope Cassidy loves playing with her new Lego set!
