Guest Designer for Theresa

What a happy day. The incredibly talented Theresa Momber emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would be a Guest Designer for her. She has designed a beautiful new stamp set, "A Very Merry Christmas", which is available from Gina K Designs. Theresa is one of my stamping "idols" so it was such an honor to accept this invitation.

The day I received this set from Theresa, I made a very traditional type Christmas card using red and green. You can see this card on Theresa's blog. This set is so versatile. I decided to create something very different for you tonight so I have gone from "traditional" to "elegant".

Isn't this a beautiful tree! The colors I used for this card are Baja Breeze and White. The tree was embossed using detail white embossing powder. To give it an "elegant" look, I decided to cut it out with the Label Six Nestability dies. The designer paper is from SU and the white CS was embossed with the SU Sizzix Finial Press embossing folder. A piece of ribbon was put through the Xyron Sticker machine and attached across the middle of the card. Flat backed pearls were added to complete the elegant look of this card.

I love working with Theresa's beautiful Christmas stamps. She also designed a digital paper pack called "Deck the Halls" to go with this set. I have more cards made, so be sure to check back here for more ideas using this set .

THANK YOU THERESA for inviting me to be one of your guest designers this month. This is such an honor.

Sharri Seffens is also a Guest Designer for Theresa this month. Be sure to visit her blog tonight for another beautiful card made with this set. Edit: I just saw Sharri's post tonight. You can't miss it. She made a beautiful card but also an incredible gift set!

As I stated earlier, Theresa has posted another card I made on her Blog. If you didn't come from there, check it out here.

: We have had a big wind storm today and have been without power and/or Internon and off all day. I'm hoping everything continues to work tonight so this posts on time. I just received an email from Theresa that she is having problems tonight too. If you don

Elegant is definitely the word for this card, Selma! I love it!!

I tend to always choose the traditional colors when making my Christmas cards, and you have just created a card which is clearly an example of why we need to step out of the box, and use some non-traditional colors. This card is gorgeous, and gives this stamp set a whole different look by using non traditional colors.

I love the detail you put into this card, and it is beautiful.
