SUStars Blog Hop

Welcome to this months SUStars Blog Hop! SUStars is a group of Demonstrators who personify the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart. We LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love. There are so many talented ladies on this months hop, so sit back and enjoy.

You have probably hopped here from Denise Foor's blog. She has some amazing projects for this months hop.

I love to use sets for Christmas that are not Christmas cards, so I chose to share a very simple but beautiful Christmas Card today made
with my favorite set of all time, Lovely As A Tree. This set has been my go to set for some many occasions, and it always comes through beautifully.

I stamped the stand of trees and sentiment with Versamark onto Night of Navy card stock then embossed with
Gold embossing powder. I then used White Smooch paint to add some snow to the trees and ground. Brushed Gold Card Stock is my layer. It really brings out the gold embossing. I added
brads to each side of the sentiment, then misted the whole card with Champagne Shimmer spray.

This card is so easy, yet so elegant. You could crank out quite a few of these babies in a short amount of time and everyone would think you spent hours, lol.

Thanks so much for hopping with us this weekend! Your next stop is Vicki Howell's blog, Inky Fingers. I know she is gonna WOW you.

I would love it if you could leave a comment, I do appreciate them all. Have a great weekend and happy hopping.
