New Holiday Mini Stamps are here!!

This layout you may recognize from my guest designer a few weeks back Linda C. with a few changes. I love to take a layout and show you how to use several different stamps with it.
CS: Choc chip, real red, old olive, white
Ink: old olive, real red
Stamp Sets: Yuletide Christmas(mini pg.22)
Serene Snowflakes(mini pg.26)
Dasher (IBC pg.208)
Winter Post(IBC pg.35)
Filigree Background( this will make any cs look like DP pg.135,
Short & Sweet (IBC Pg. 141)
Movers and shakers die cut with the modern die in red for a border, then used the modern punch in white and stamped Happy Holidays from Winter Post on it. Eyelet Border punch on the red cs wrapped with,Alpine ribbon ( now its all gone!!) I used the Serene Snowflake in this card and put a rhinestone in the middle for a little bling! The choc chip cs was stamped with the filigree bg stamp before I started.
I used the Yuletide set in this one and a couple of rhinestones for bling!
Addes a little 1/4" real red ribbon above the focal point to add some color.
I used Dasher and Sweet and sassy for the sentiment,rhinestones for bling! Gotta have Christmas bling!! I ran out of alpine here and started using read red grosgrain 5/8"
Yuletide Christmas again, red rhinestones
This is one of my favorite stamp sets Winter Post, a Holiday must. Here I took Dasher antlers and stamped them around the edges to give it something extra , was too plain. Next time on this card I think I will glitter the whole focal image. Short and sassy has this sentiment as well.

Holiday card classes coming up soon! Please sign up asap for October scheduled events classes fill up fast!!
Look forward to seeing you!!

What a great idea using Dasher's antlers to dress up the card. I love Winter Post.
