Bye Bye 2014! Hello 2015!!

Happy New Year's Eve!

I hope you have the perfect plans for tonight!  I'll be hanging out with my parents and my husband.  Can't beat that low key kind of awesome after the holiday we have had!! 
(lets not ever say the word Flu again....k?!)

Its been a while since I have used my awesome sistah I thought we'd say good bye to 2014 in true Donna fashion....With my girls and my blendies!!

This was one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2014 Catalog.  I am stoked to be able to add more fashion to their wardrobe with NEW BLENDIES!! heard me right...NEW BLENDABILITIES in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  EEK!!  as if that is not enough of a reason to celebrate today!!

This gorgeous lady was colored with the Wisteria Wonder and the *Bermuda Bay Blendies
And this is my favorite part....The Dazzling Details really make this circle embossing pop this bling look!  The wonky little 2015 was from the Skinny Mini Alphabet set, 
(totally appropriate for her eh?!)

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.  Have a safe, fun, and CELEBRATORY! New Year's Eve.  
Tomorrow we start counting down until the 2015 Occasions and the Sale-a-Bration catalog come out...
You do NOT want to miss this!!

So excited ..... did you know TODAY!! is a very special day!
It is my 100th post today!! Whoo Hoo!  Thanks for taking this ride with me.  Your encouragement, patience, and comments are so greatly appreciated!!  Without you, this wouldn't be very fun!

Remember the Thank You card we made last week? I would send it to all of you if I could!
Here's another spin on the traditional holiday card!

Sometimes you just wanna tell your Hubby or Bff that you care about them...and you wanna use up the last of your Christmas paper too.  Know anyone getting married in December or getting engaged on Christmas?!?!  This is the perfect card!! 

Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper

This is my masculine Christmas card for my hubby.

Christmas Thank You!

TGIF Happy Stamper!!

I hope you are ready for the weekend!  Have a few parties to attend?  Christmas can be a time of incredibly busy schedules and lots of festive parties to attend.
You have mailed your Christmas cards...Your gifts are all wrapped and ready to what?!

Did you remember your thank you card?

This time of year we receive a LOT of gifts!  It is easy to forget that Thank You cards are still a great way to tell Aunt Bernise you truly DO LOVE! your new sweater!

I just LOVE this new Photopolymer stamp set Banner Blessings!!

Banner Blessings Photopolymer Stamp Set
  I used our Gold Dazzling Details to add some shine to the sentiment.  I love sparkle!!

 And speaking of sparkle....!!  Our Gold Glimmer paper and the sequins really add to the shine!

I love the Under The Tree Specialty Designer Paper.  I will truly miss this next month when the Holiday Catalog ends.  Seriously...GET THIS PAPER!!!

Anything goes Blog Hop!!

  Welcome Happy Stamper!!

I am so excited to be participating in the SSInkspiration Christmas Blog Hop this month!!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 6 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop -Bree @ Craft-somnia Momma.  (isn't she amazing?!!). If so, you are in the right spot! If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Our theme this month is "Anything Goes Christmas"
I LOVE anything and everything about this!
I love that its still Christmas themed, and we're still in the holiday spirit.  And I love! that it's whatever I want!!  :)

This is my shaker card for December.  Isn't it fun!?  I used black Staz-on to stamp the image on one of Stampin' Up!'s window sheets.  LOVE LOVE!!
Then (I know you're SHOCKED!) I used the blendabilities to color the back of the window sheet (note to self:  blendabilities and Staz-on do not work well together, so that is why I colored the back)
Once you stamp on the window sheet, you can adhere the frame to the window sheet.  Then add foam strips (3M makes half-in strips that are perfect for this!) to the window sheet.  Adhere the Vanilla sheet to your card and put a little pile of sequins onto the Vanilla, THEN adhere the window frame on top.  easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I wanted the shadow box effect.  The image creates a great shadow on the Very Vanilla background.  
I used our Frosted Sequins from the holiday catalog.  so sparkly!
*if you don't like the double image...just stamp on the Vanilla paper instead of the window sheet.  

I love that you can use the blendabilities to color the snowflakes in the Frosted Sequins pack!

I added some Dazzling Details to the snowflakes in the DSP and also to the frame.  My intent was to make it look like ice...I hope you get that!
I love love love love! the Under the Tree DSP ... its a great mix of color and kraft paper!!  I am a huge fan of non-red/green Christmas this is so my thing!

Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my Christmas card!  Don't forget to leave some comments below, I love your feedback and suggestions on ways I can amp up my work! Then keep hopping, you're headed to a great project with Tonya!
