STAMPlorations Christmas Release - Day 1

Today, I had a coat of almost frost on my windshield!! Autumn is in full gear here in North Dakota, and with it comes the sweet, sweet panic of not having started on Christmas cards. haha! Every year I get to the last vestiges of November and bemoan the fact that I didn't have the foresight to be making Christmas cards all year long.

But not this year, my friends! Not this year.

Why? Because I've gotten a good look at the STAMPlorations official Christmas releases, which come out TODAY! woop woop! I've created some spectacular holiday cards, and will be sharing them with you all week long to inspire you to create!

The first set we're focusing on is designed by yours truly! It's called Christmas Cookies & Cheer, and carries my signature snark along with a healthy dose of sweetness.


This set is the perfect thing for making adorable Christmas cards OR for making sweet little tags to go along with those cookies you give away during the holiday season. 

I decided to design a card with lots of texture and shimmer. 

Look at all that cuteness!! 
This card is going to play along in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Use Ribbon, Twine or Lace
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - Anything Christmas Goes
The Merry Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes

  2. For some reason I can't see any cards. I've refreshed a couple of times. Have the cards been deleted from the post? I've used 2 different browsers too. Would love to see your creation.
