BOO! Final Day of Sneak Peeks!

It is more blessed to give than to receive...that's what my Mom always taught me and I hope I can instill that into my own children. The verse, Acts 20:35, from Clear Dollar Stamps, will be available for purchase tomorrow, November 1st. I wanted it to be the highlight of the card. I also have shyed away from many challenges asking for a lot of white on white to be used, so out of my comfort zone I went! The card base is white, the next layer, yep, you guessed it, is white and embossed with the Ornaments embossing folder. The other two colors are Bermuda bay and Basic black. The verse was stamped on white the popped up directly on top of another white panel -- I warned ya, it's a lot of white!! I had to use my new Martha Stewart loopy border punch, a little gingham ribbon and some black pearls. Check out these blogs of other ladies showing off this verse:

Now this card is showing off three new single stamps - present, tree, and Seasonal Wishes sentiment. The little holly sprig is from the set Sassy Scallops. Another card using a lot of white, what has gotten into me??!! Anyway, I stamped the tree in Old olive and the present in Real red and colored them in with my red and green glitter gelly roll pens. What fun sparkle. The eyelet border punch by SU was used on the red cardstock. The sentiment was stamped and punched out. The bow treatment is actually done in two pieces - the bottom piece was cut and the corners snipped. I then made a loop and stapled it in place, knowing I could hide the staple by popping up my sentiment. Simple, fun and sparkly...everything a holiday card should be!! There are other single stamps being released and you won't want to miss out on them!

Something else you don't want to miss out on is the Great Candy Caper. Why are we having a Great Candy Caper? We are celebrating something.....does anyone know what that would be? For 5 days, we will be giving away 5 prizes, to 5 people each day, to celebrate 5 years of????? Be sure to find out all the details November 1st!
