Crafty Cat's Gorgeous Christmas Candles

Crafty Cat 957 has the most beautiful products available for download for crafters who want to try their hand at paper pieceing.  You can use your cutting machine, or scissors to cut the ready to go designs she creates.  For these cards I used her Christmas Candles This comes with mats, background papers, and two sizes of candle sets (holly, berries, candles, and flames) for you to use.  I did some sewing machine stitching to accent the top mat, and used some stickers, (or stamps) for the Merry Christmas sentiment.  Thank you Tracy for the beautiful, beautiful cards, and for being a part of my life.

Some things have to be believed to be seen....These are some of the cards I've been working on today for our doctors, lawyers, merchants and chiefs!  These "Some things have to be believed to be seen" sure fit with "seeing is believing" with all my medical adventures this past year.

The products are stamps and punches and dies by Stampin Up. These products are available from Demonstrator Kathy Legan's store.

The blue paper is a Stampin Up product, together with stickers that I buy at Pop Ups Etc
The red paper is also SU, but it is overlayed with a vellum embossing and cutting folder by Marianne Designables.  # Ds0908.    The poinsettia is cut from vellum (Spellbinders die:  S5-055 Layered Poinsettias) This is burnished with Tim Holtz Distressing ink (festive Berries)  The Snowflake and gold tree are stickers also from Pop Ups Etc
