Visions of Sugarplums Designer's Hop - Day Four!

Hello sweet friends and welcome to another fun day here in blog land!  I'm honored to share a couple more projects with you all that I created for the Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Designer's Hop!  Let's get right down to business and take a little peek ... for today's inspiration, I made four holiday cards!

This  first card was created in a traditional red and green color palette with some yummy holiday patterned papers and stickers!  The sentiment and mistletoe were stamped using the O' Christmas Tree stamp set from Paper Sweeties!

Red berries were added using Stickles and the mistletoe was hung with red baker's twine!

This next card is rather clean and simple ... for me!  I embossed the raspberry background card stock and added iridescent Stickles for some shimmer and shine!  I stamped an ornament shape, and added some dazzling diamonds glitter ... and then the sentiment was stamped using the Believe! stamp set from Paper Sweeties!

The ornament was adhered to the base with dimensionals and 'hung' from a snipett of ivory velvet ribbon!

The third card I created was made using some delicious patterned papers from October Afternoon along with some candy cane alphas I've had in my stash for a couple of years -- they are glittered -- YUM!  The sentiment was stamped using the O' Christmas Tree stamp set from Paper Sweeties!

I love a {PINK} holiday card, how about you??!!??

And for the fourth card I created for today's hop, I used a soon-to-be released sentiment set from Paper Sweeties called Christmas in the Heart ... our new-in-December sets will be released and live in the shoppe on December 15th!

Another traditional red and green palette, but with the addition of a couple sprinkles of gold embellishments, this card becomes quite elegant!
