SSINK Winter Wonderland Carols of Christmas

Merry Christmas!!  After all the rushing around & busyness, it’s here.  A day to pause and reflect on the greatest gift the world has been given.  A day to be grateful.  A day to share.

I’m sharing some 3 X 3 cards with you today for our theme:  Winter Wonderland.  I love all the little details in these cards:  glitter on the trees, a tiny deer, and that cute silver mini sequins. The colors used are Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

And we’ve got snowed on a couple of weeks ago!- not at my house, but on my mountain- Haleakala!  Photo courtesy Aki'Ra

Although it may sound strange, snowfall in Hawaii is not rare. It snows here every year, but only at the summits of the highest volcanoes on the Big Island – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea – which are at an elevation above 13,000 feet, as well as Haleakala on the island of Maui, which is at an elevation of just over 10,000 feet.

As you can see, a stack of 3 X 3 cards fits perfectly in the pizza box.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!!

Oh… before you go, be sure & stop by the SSINK PAGE for more Winter Wonderland ideas!

Step It Up! with Carols of Christmas

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showing you ways to Step It Up!  This is a fun way to show your customers more options and embellishments!

I decided to start with a card I made last month using Carols of Christmas.

I liked this card mainly because of the star cutouts you get from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  These come as a bundle with the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set.

Here you can see how I stepped it up!

Remember Highlights for Kids?  I used to love those magazines when I was little!  They always had a page where you were supposed to find the differences in the 2 pictures.

So here’s your challenge:  Find the 5 (yes, five!) ways I’ve STEPPED IT UP!  I’ll send you a Christmas Card in the mail as your prize!  Place your guess in the comments section below.

Thanks for stopping by today & be sure & go to the SSINK BLOG PAGE to see their ideas!

SSINKspiration Case the DT: Diana Eichfeld

Today the SSINK Team is CASEing a team member:  Diana Eichfeld!  Diana always comes up with some very beautiful & creative ideas!  Here’s her card that I’m CASE-ing:

I started here because I just love her card!  But when I started playing around with the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies, my card ended up a lot different.  But I love the way it turned out!

The colors are Cherry Cobbler & Soft Sky.  Peace on Earth.  What a beautiful and appropriate sentiment for this Christmas!  You’ll find the supply list below.
