My Facebook Live on Monday featured three different cards using the Sparkle of the Season Bundle. I love this bundle and it’s versatilty! I was able to create three totally different cards – Halloween, Gratitude (good all year long!) and Christmas.   You can purchase this bundle and create cards for several different needs – and that is always appealing!

I created a whimsical Christmas card – very simple with a panel of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  For this card, my wreath was created with a stamp from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set – I stamped this onto a square of Basic White card stock with Crumb Cake Ink.  I used a Crumb Cake blend to spatter some subtle flecks onto this panel.  The pine boughs were stamped in Evening Evergreen ink, the pine cones in Crumb Cake ink – and all were cropped with the coordinating dies and my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  So easy!  I added a bit of bling to the wreath with Metallic Pearls.  These pearls come in a package with both Silver and Gold pearls and are great to add a subtle touch of bling to your projects.  To finis the card I placed my word panel over a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon.

I created a whimsical Halloween card. I love the star wreath die cut with Crumb Cake Cardstock.  The bats and pumpkin are part of the Seasonal Swirls dies included in the Sparkle of the Season bundle.  There are some great dies in this set – including the cute witch’s broom!  For this card, I used a panel of Melon Mango DSP from the Brights Paper Stack, and the Polka Dot pattern is from the host only Playful Patterns Paper Stack – everyone is crazy about this stack of DSP – one side is all black/white patterns and designs, while the other side is a mix of colorful patterns.  I embossed a panel with the Timeworn Embossing Folder and built the rest of the layers up from that.  I wanted to add a touch of sparkle, so I used a small strip of the Black Organdy Glittered Ribbon, and a bow of Linen Thread.

I used three different colors of cardstock to create the wreath on the card below – Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Pale Papaya.  I positioned the three wreaths – and offset them so that the leaves were not lined up, but instead scattered around the wreath shape. I pulled some of the leaves from the different leaves to give it some dimension and to blend the different colors together.  I used the Bark embossing panel – and love the mix of the Very Vanilla with the Whisper White colors.   I finished the card with a few Champagne Rhinestone Gems and a Linen Thread bow.
