Christmas Blog Hop

Hello sweet friends!  Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Special DT Christmas Blog Hop!  Today the  Design Divas are featuring our favorite SNSS Christmas stamp sets just in time to give you plenty of inspiration for your holiday stamping.  We hope you will join the fun and leave some love behind as you visit each blog.  I'm sure you have your own favorite Christmas stamp set, so we're inviting you to create your own Christmas greeting and add it to the gallery by clicking the Linky Tool below!  Of course there will be a PRIZE for those who decide to join us.  You have until Thursday, October 30th, 2014 at midnight EST to upload your creation.  We will randomly select one lucky participant to receive a $10 gift code to be used at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!  The winner will be posted on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog on Friday, October 31st.

Today, I decided to create a CAS card using the very versatile Holiday Baubles set.  



I chose 3 of the ornaments from the set.  I scored 3 lines to "hang" my ornaments from at different lengths.  I embossed the ornaments with silver detail embossing powder and added some rhinestones at the top of each.  I used silver mirror paper to matte the images.  I finished the card by embossing the sentiment and framing it with tiny rhinestones.  This would be a simple (yet elegant) card to reproduce. 

Now it's your turn...
Create a Christmas Card using your favorite Christmas stamp set!

Just a few guidelines to remember as you play:

Very pretty, it is elegant and yet still simple enough to do a lot of cards at the same time.
