Heavenly Christmas Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Heavenly Christmas Blog Hop! If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, just click HERE to go to Lisa's Blog. I have a non-paper project today but I did use one of my very favorite embellishments to create.... 
A ribbon tree!!  That's right, 5 different spools of coordinating ribbon and some sequin pins to stick it into the styrofoam tree is all it took! Then a mysterious ornament that may or may not have been "borrowed" from a real tree ended up being a fabulous addition to the top! 
The next stop on this fantastic hop is Pam's Blog! Hope you'll take a minute to leave me a comment before you hop along... you never know when the Christmas spirit, and an urge to declutter my desk might make some one's Christmas a little brighter....

KinderStampO Holiday Cheer Blog Hop

Welcome to the 
KinderStampO Guest Design Team "Holiday Cheer" Blog Hop... 
I am so excited to share my creativity with you... 
we have of fun projects, challenges, features and surprises in store for you 
and I can't wait for you to be part of it!

I'm Mandie Wade and I've been crafting my whole life but I started scrapbooking about 6 1/2 years ago when my first daughter was born. Now I've got 2 gorgeous little girls to create pages about and I've also started creating cards and other paper crafting goodies along the way. I just love to play with paper and all of the different fun embellishments! 

Today I have a Christmas card that I've created to go along with our Holiday Cheer theme! You can click any of the photos to see the pictures bigger.

I pulled this fabulous Graphic 45 paper from my stash and used this new angel stamp that I just bought and stamped her in gold metallic ink. I also inked my paper and card base as well as around the sentiment. Next I distressed my Doily with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist, I snipped off 3 of the Coconut Shabby Chic Flower Trim flowers colored them with my Copic Markers. I love being able to match my papers exactly by simply coloring my embellishments!

You can see the gorgeous Faux Rhinestone and Blossom trim in Canary (it's more of a gold than a yellow) that I simply snipped apart to frame my sentiment a bit. I also popped my sentiment up with a little foam adhesive.

Here's one more look at the beautiful angel! Now she's on the way to a special friend of mine! 
Happy Holidays!
