Stampin' Up! holiday trees

So, I chose this embossing folder for my downline award cards which means I usually have to design around 8 different cards using one stamp set.  So I went on the prowl for some clever ideas.  
Here's one of the cards I did with my theme of the Woodland embossing folder #139673
 The basic layout with the bird in the branch was from an idea I found online.  I was pretty thrilled with myself when I came up with this tag....does it look familiar?
 It's our note tag punch #135860
First, I punched the stamped saying, then I returned the piece into the rear of the punch thru the open-face of the punch, and punched again, taking off about 3/4 of the bottom of the punch but still getting that same rounded look on the bottom.
If you don't understand, post below and ask for a video of it
Check back tomorrow for a few more ideas that I did with this set

Stampin' Up! Shaker Ornament

What fun this bundle has been!  The ornament stamps and coordinating dies are just endless hours of fun.

I decided to try my hand at a shaker card cause this new red foil paper was tempting me sore.
I used our metallic sequins, window sheet and lots of dimensionals to create this card.
I also used our new embossing folder, Boughs and Berries  #140875
After I was finished I decided I wanted to try the ornament in gold foil. As gorgeous as foil is, I'm sort of still leaning toward the white ornament...what do you think?

Stampin' Up! Holiday

This is the first card that I designed after I got my new pre-order.  I think I was so amazed at this stack of designer vellum....isn't it just gorgeous?

This card uses alot of New stuff...let me tell you all about it
The stamp is from Happy Scenes (pg. 11) and coordinates in a bundle with Hearth and Home Framelits #140853
And not to forget the designer vellum  from Winter Wonderland Stack #139594
It still melts my heart, it's so beautiful
And the wooden snowflake #139638  that come in 3 assorted designs and sizes
