Remarkable you ... On the weekly deals

This week's deals feature sequins, mini pegs, framelits and a fabulous stampset called "Remarkable you" which has been on my wish list since the start of the catalogue. now its 25% off and i am so excited!
also on the weekly deals is the gorgeous "Lucky stars" Embossing Folder - Which is an essential item for card making especially  on christmas cards, male and boy cards. I just love my embossing folder collection. This Week's Deals from Stampin' Up! are a great way to build your craft supplies at a discount.
You can purchase these products by emailing or message me and I'll place your order. But remember they are only available for one week until Tues 29, September.
On Friday, I visited my fellow crafter, Wanda and we made two cards for Christmas. The first uses the lovely brickwork embossing folder and the window from hearth and home thinlit die from the holiday catalogue.
Our Second card was very simple using real red cardstock and a slash of whisper white card.
The stamp is from "Peaceful Wreath" page 21 of the Holiday catalogue.
The holly sprig is stamped with Basic grey archival ink and water coloured with Mossy Meadow and Real Red classic ink. I think the 5 silver sequins sets it off perfectly.

Silver glimmer and gently falling

This card was totally inspired by the weekly deals from Stampin' up! 
When the glimmer paper is on sale I buy it. I just love the glimmer paper on anything.
Christmas is obvious,  because it makes even the simplest card special.
Embossed back grounds are my simplest and absolute favourite way to dress up and embrace the white space of a card. How perfect is the "Simply Falling" embossing folder?
And to top it off there's silver cord to tie the card together and a punched silver star.
