Two 4 Tuesday - Getting Ready for Xmas!

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

It's official; the Christmas projects have started. Gen and I are busy preparing fun stuff for you guys. Today was turn to come up with a 2-for and I decided to use my brand spankin' new products from the upcoming Holidays Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! (one of the perks of being a demo is that we get to order before our customers -- wweeee!). Those products will be available on Wednesday, Sept. 1st.

Here's a card and a tag, using the same exact products with the exception of the embellishment -- one's a glitter brad, the other one is a ribbon:

Look at that cute paper?!!!! I love it! It's called Candy Cane... can't go wriong with a name like that. The label is also new from a stamp set called Tags 'til Christmas. Oh! and that new Decorative Label Punch that fits perfectly around the stamped image, leaving a white border!!!! Yeah, I'm in love. The brad is also new and is glittery!!! We lurv glitter!

And because I couldn't resist, I shot a close-up of the card outside from underneath the gazebo while Stuuph and a friend were swimming in the pool... it's 30 degrees Celsius outside and Mommy is making Christmas projects :-) The contrast was too tempting to resist.

Have nice stampin' day !!! CeeCee

Bon début de projets de Noël! :) J'ai hâte de voir le reste!! :) De mon côté aussi je suis en train de faire des cartes de Noël, mais c'est plus facile pour moi parce qu'ici on gèle depuis une semaine. Ca sent vraiment l'automne! Voire même l'hiver?! brrr!!
