JINGLE all the way !

Please excuse the poor photo.  You can't see it in this picture, but the white embossed background is the slightest bit shimmery from a pearl mist.  I also lined the envelope with the same embossed white paper (I just love a lined envelope!).  I used my Cuttlebug for the embossing and cut the "jingle" with my Cricut.

"BIG" is the key

This is a very simple card to make and it has a big impact.  Don't you just love the Papertrey Ink cardstock?  I just love that color!

Papertrey Ink card

I just LOVE the ornament die from Papertrey Ink.  This is one of my favorite cards.  I love the rustic look of the patterned papers on the kraft cardstock.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - September 2010

Hello all.  I'm so excited to join the blog hop this month.  This is my first!  I'm sort of new to blogging and I'm so excited to join in and share with all of you.  I've gotten SO MANY wonderful ideas from SO MANY stampers - it was hard to decide what to post ! ! I learned this cutout technique from Kristina Werner.  I've used it a couple of times for cards and have just loved the results.  I have also learned alot from Heather Nichols  and the Papertrey Ink site and forum.  I made the little Trick or Treat bags that Heather created and just love them.  I would never have thought to use glassine bags that way.  How creative!  I could spend hours going thru all of the ideas and the galleries.  Anyway, hope you like my card.  I can't wait to visit all of your blogs.  Happy Hopping to all!
