STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:  Basic Jewels Rhinestones (stick-on convenience–love it) really put the sparkle in this winter wonderland card!  I used a Hobby Blade and Cutting Mat to "cut a wave" on the Brushed Silver card stock.

  1. Elegant and cute at the same time? Of course!! Love how you used the Northern Flurry embossing folder and the rhinestones to add great texture and bling!

  2. Just when I think stamping can’t get any better, you post something that is amazing. Your site has really taken my stamping projects up a few notches! These are beautiful and I gotta have some of that brushed silver paper!

  3. Just stunning, Mary!!! I think I’m going to have to add those stick-on rhinestones to my next order! BTW, thanks for the shipping update on my recent order – you’re the best!!! 🙂

  4. Hi Adelle:

    Honestly, I just press firmly with the hobby blade (with my cutting mat beneath) and slowly work a curve into the card stock. Try a few times with some scratch paper. It’s easier than you might think.

    Hugs, M

  5. I love that white matting!!! Your card and pouch are so beautiful. I love the bling and especially that touch of red. Hugs,

  6. this is the most impressive use of this stamp set, so far, that I’ve seen; it’s a WOW!! TFS!

  7. Mary, I really like the embossing on the silver CS – you always help me notice things in the catalog – and make my wishlist grow! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your talented work!

  8. I love how the brushed silver paper looks! I haven’t used it before, but just might after seeing here. I just had a customer ask about it and I will direct her to your blog so she can see an example of it. Thanks again for sharing and as always, love your work!! The card is wonderful!

  9. So beautiful! I am beginning to get nervous when I open your blog because it often means I need to add a few things to my Stampin’ Up inventory! You are the only person who I have found that is dedicated to posting something new every day, that hard work and creativity has really blessed you! And me too!

  10. *sigh* Beautiful!! I want to come to your house and make Christmas cards!! 🙂

  11. Mary, I love the brushed silver CS, I just got some on my last order. It jsut screams Christmas cards to me! This is rally a beautiful set! I love the white on silver – so chic!

  12. I have never done the “wave”. Do you mark your curve with a pencil before you do it? How do you get it looking so perfect? Thanks for your wonderful blog. I read it every day. Your cards are beautiful.
