Stampin' Up! Peace This Christmas: DOstamperSTARS #DSC210

Wishing you Peace, Joy, and Love this Christmas!



DSC#210

This weeks' DOstamperSTARS  challenge is a perfect opportunity to highlight the beauty of all Stampin' Up! Embellishments!

The beauty of Christmas is shimmers with silver and gold!  The peace, love and blessings of Christmas is with the beautiful smells of pine, sharing a kiss under the mistletoe, and the gathering of family and friends.  Stampin' Up! embellishments add color, dimension or shimmer to any special project.  I chose with this challenge to add color and dimension with Regals Enamel Shapes #141681.

Stampin' Up! Peace this Christmas Stamp Set #141570 in the Annual Catalog coordinates beautifully with so many embellishments that I will highlight only a few: Metallic Foil Dollies #138392, Gold Metallic Thread #138401, Metallics Sequin Assortment #138390, and of course Regals Enamel Shapes #141681.


Supplies needed for this easy to make Christmas card include: Peace this Christmas Stamp Set #141570, Emerald Envy Cardstock #141415, Whisper White Cardstock #101650, Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper #141986, Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies #141851, ink used Garden Green #126973, Cherry Cobbler #126966, and Regals Enamel Shapes #141681.


Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies #141851 and Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper #141986 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog coordinates beautifully with Peace this Christmas #141570.
