Poinsettia, Holly Spray, Pine Bough and Noel Ornament Card

  Happy Saturday Crafty Peeps! I'm back again with another Christmas Card that seems quite dimensional, and a little overboard on the top, but it really sparkles and it was super FUN to create!  :)  I'm calling it the; 
Poinsettia, Holly Spray, Pine Bough and Noel Ornament Card

This shimmery card sparkles so much more IRL- (it was tough to capture that shine on camera). I cut out the NOEL word and double layered it then hung it from Holly Spray to make it seem like an ornament. The Mosaic Poinsettia is backed by the Classic Poinsettia in AC glitter black CS. The Holly sprays are also multi-layered and backed with AC glitter black CS for added depth. 
CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: none
Paper: AC Duotone, Heavy Black Glitter CS, The Paper Company Shimmery white CS, Heavy White CS
Paper Size: 5x7
Ink: none
Accessories: Creative Expressions Holly Sprays, Pine Bough, Classic Poinsettia, Mosaic Poinsettia, Sentimental Bauble and Framed Noel Craft dies by Sue Wilson, EK Success Border Punch, Cuttlebug EF, Pearls, Pearl Cording, Fabric Dimensional Paint, White Glitter
Techniques: embossing, layering

These Creative Expressions Festive Collection Dies sets are so awesome. I used the Holly Sprays, Pine Bough, Classic Poinsettia, Mosaic Poinsettia, Sentimental Bauble and Framed Noel.  For more on these fabulous Craft Dies and to see Sue's gorgeous works of art, check out her Blog. http://particraft.blogspot.com/

A Paper Pieced Christmas Flight for HMFMC178

Hello again crafty Friends. I'm so glad you are here.  I have a midway reminder for our Paper Piecing House-Mouse Challenge #HMFMC178
 photo hmbannerfall1.jpg
Here is my take on a sparkly Christmas scene:
I paper pieced the mouse by stamping it three ties and individually cutting out the hat and mouse in three parts then adhering with dimensional glue dots.  I've also used lots of these Festive Collection dies by Sue Wilson  to build up a poinsettia and greenery. I wanted something that Monica could land on.  Looking back, my kids say I should have her landing onto Candy.  LOL!  The card is finished off with lines of rhinestones that I cut from a roll of this decorative sparkly stuff (found in the floral section at Michael's).

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampendous! House-Mouse Designs, Cling Mounted Stamp called; "Whee Flight", #HMCQ02.
It features Monica holding on to her Santa hat as she gets daring this Holiday Season.
This original design is copyright Ellen Jareckie and House-Mouse Designs®.
Paper: Metallic textured Green CS, White Heavy CS, American Crafts DPs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Creative Expressions Festive Collection Classic and Mosaic Poinsettias, Craft Dies by Sue Wilson, Candy Cane EF, Sparkly Red Ribbon, Rhinestones
Techniques: Paper Piecing, Dry Embossing, Layering
