Ornaments of Joy, HMFMC181

Hello Blogging Friends.  Hope this Fall is treating you beautifully.
I have had a crazy month but finally found some time to create another Christmas card. (though I must find time to make some of my fave Halloween ones too!) :)

This next card was created for the current House-Mouse and Friends MC challenge #HMFMC181, over at HMFMC. The theme is White on White, and it was chosen by our fabulously talented Teamie, Kelly Smith.  This is my WHITE on WHITE take:
This white shimmery mousey card actually sparkles so much better than the picture shows. I have used the Stampendous! House-Mouse Designs Cling Stamp called "Candy Joy" and separated the three mice into sections for the three ornaments above. The ornaments were multi die-cut and layered. They are outlined with Stickles Glitter Glue and Martha Stewart Ultra-fine White Glitters.  I added rows of adhesive pearls above the baubles to look like they are hanging. The word Joy finishes off the look.

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampendous!, House-Mouse Designs, 

Cling Stamp called "Candy Joy"


Paper: The Paper Company/Colorbok, Shimmery Whites CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Creative Expressions Festive Collection Sentimental Bauble Craft Dies by Sue Wilson, EK Success Border Punch, Stampin' Up! Oval Punch, Diamond Stickles, MS Glitter, Pearl String, Adhesive Pearls
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Layering

Christmas Dies used on a *LOVE* themed Card

Hello Crafty Friends!  I'm super excited about these NEW dies and have been creating loads of Christmas cards lately. I have used the NOEL die from Sue Wilson's Christmas Festive Collection Dies by Creative Expressions and separated the words for this LOVE themed card.  This framed NOEL sentiment Die can be seen below and purchased HERE:  

I simply cut out the LOVE section of this die (several times), and layered this for dimension then designed my card around all that LOVE. :) heheh
Another SW, CE die used here was the French Collection Border Corner and Tag die found HERE. I cut it in half to only use the decorative edges of the tag die.  The only other products used here were satin ribbon, Glossy Cardstock, White CS, EK Success Corner Punch, and loads of adhesive Pearls.
