Two for today

I love the new Designer Paper from Stampin' Up! The green on the first card is from the Ski Slope series. I love the Olive Green and Vanilla background for this card. A Wish for Peace is stamped in Old Olive on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used the ticket corner punch on all the layers for this card. The main tree has Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to make it the main focal point. The small piece of red at the bottom is the other side of the designer paper and I just had to use some pearls from the Pretties Kit.

My brown card is the Chocolate Chip Patterns Series Designer Paper. I stamped Home for Christmas in Basic Brown on Whisper White cardstock, ran it through my Xyron both ways. I then cut the design in quarters, carefully peeled off the front Xyron paper and poured Dazzling Diamonds over it. Then smooshed the pieces, remove excess DD and mounted it on Chocolate Chip cardstock (of course it is not as straight as it should be). The bottom piece of designer paper was turned over and then I used the Scallop Edge punch, then mounted the greeting from Heard from the Heart on it. I also added some of my new favorite stickers from Class A Peel.

I hope you like them. Now I really need to clean up a few things around this house.
