Holiday Cheer cards with Iwona Palamountain

Hi peeps, it's time to get Glitzy!! And, considering that Christmas is fast approaching (YAY!!!), I'm doing it in a holiday fashion. You think it would be hard to put together a Holiday-themed card, with the non-holiday collection? Nope. Glitz has it all covered, with a multitude of fun papers, whatnots, and a couple of embellishments, you will have a wonderfully festive card whipped up in no time!

Firstly, let me brag a little bit, about my favourite ever collection from Glitz, Beautiful Dreamer. It's sweet and girly, but yet its colours are perfect for a non-traditional Christmas project. I admitted it many times on my blog, how much I love pink and teal and what a wonderful combo it is for the Holidays.
I utilized one of the papers on this card, that looks like candy cane, along with a Whatnot, trimmed to give a beautiful flourish frame for the focal point. I even found a matching sticker, so appropriate for the occasion!

Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" paper: Stripe
Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" Whatnot
Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" Trim
Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" Titles Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design "Beautiful Dreamer" Giant Rhinestones

Other: cardstock: recycled kraft, teal; snowflake stamp: The Craft's Meow; ink: Memento (Bamboo Leaves); snowflake die: My Favorite Things Die-Namics; glitter glue; buttons; striped ribbon

For the next card, I reached for one of the older collections, that I adore for its beautiful and rich designs, especially the papers - Love Games. The card that I made with it, is a hip and funky approach to the silly season. Again, I utilized the supplies on hand, from the said collection as well as a little bit of "Hoopla", to create a collage card with the Holidays in mind.

Glitz Design "Love Games" papers: Damask, Polka, Stripe, Floral
Glitz Design "Love Games" Titles Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design Teeny Alpha: Navy, Pearl
Glitz Design "Hoopla" Whatnot

Other: cardstock: white; ornament stamp: Hero Arts; ink: Memento (Rhubarb Stalk); Dizzy Doily die: My Favorite Things Die-Namics; string; buttons; seam binding

So what do you say? Aren't these papers and trinkets versatile?? Yes siree! That's one of the things that I love these for :)
See you next time, for some New Year's cards!
Hugs, Iwona (Chupa)
