December_wonderMy first project uses the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set I got to play with this stamp set while I was on the Founder's Circle Retreat back in September.  I only had a few ink pad colors with me so I chose Coastal Cabana and created the tag.  I brought it home with me and added it to this card.  I love the non-traditional Christmas colors . :-)

The stamp set comes with the solid and outline diamond images.  I stamped the Coastal Cabana off once to make the solid string and then came back in with Memento Tuxedo Black for the overlaying outline image.  These stamps are Photopolymer so it is incredibly easy to line up the images.

My background uses the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Supplies: Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer stamp set, On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack, Angled Tag Topper Punch, Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

My second project is a Money Holder.  I don't know about you but cash is always the right size and always the right color for the young people on my list.  I make these every year and this year, I have a video tutorial so come back early next week and I will have it posted for you.

I usd the Letterpress Winter set with my favorite snowflake color combination this year, Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon.  I also added some of the smaller snowflakes stamped with the Encore Silver Metallic Pad.

I cut two banners, one from each color and staggered them just a bit for a pop of color at the end of the greeting
