Stampin' Stylin' Squad Blog Hop

It's the most wonderful time of the year.... and I want to share with you my favorite item in the Holiday Catalog.... the snowflake die!  My projects are both featuring this die!

This card is a CASE from a card in the Holiday Catalog.  I did change things up a bit by heat embossing the Distressed Polka Dots stamp.  I used the glittery embossing powder.  Each layer of the snowflake has dimensions in-between the different sizes.  I just LOVE the sparkly paper with the polka dot parade DSP.

My second project is using a clear glass ornament from Michaels.  Here is a tutorial that shows how to make these easy ornaments.  The picture is not the best but I used silver glitter paper again.  Oh, I also threw in a layer of the red glitter paper.  Please excuse my use of something retired, it is Stampin' Up! but the tinsel trim is from a few years ago (but I love it)!  
I hope you enjoyed my projects!  These weren't my original plan but I have had them made for awhile. I have been teaching and nannying, not to mention a lot of other things!  Last Friday I went to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party with my mom for her birthday (which was yesterday).  The castle was AMAZING all lit-up!  My favorite part was seeing the Gingerbread Houses at the Grand Floridian Hotel!

You're right; the Polka Dot paper on the glimmer paper is an amazing effect. Thanks for sharing!

I love all the sparkle on your card! It is so pretty and of course your ornament is nice and sparkly too. I had forgot about the retired tinsel. I need to check and see if I have any left for some glitter ornaments that I made. Thanks for sharing!

Love your ornament. I keep meaning to try the glittery ornament thing each year and each year I totally forget. But yours turned out great. And can I say how jealous I am of you and your mom going to Disney at Christmastime? It sounds amazing! :) Glad you two had fun.
