Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

The time for Holiday stamping is here! And this year, why not add some Elements of Excitement to your Christmas and holiday creations? Our July Catalog featured a really nice, two-page spread showcasing the Embossing Powders and Glitters that are just so perfect for seasonal glimmer and warmth.

You can see the whole catalog here – JULY 2017 Stampendous Catalog  or for a look at our Elements suggestions, we’ve made a quick PDF you can download here: Elements of Excitement

These sparkly and super dynamic elements are perfect for Fran’s Encrusted Adhesive Technique and Glitzy Adhesive Technique. Both of these techniques allow you to make dynamic cards with a ton of bling and excitement! A perfect example is this great card by Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds. You can click on it to see the project instructions and supplies.

This great card also features one of our brand new elements, Twinkle Glitter! This super cool glitter is ultra shiny and full of random shapes, so the light just bounces off of it in every direction. So lush and fantastic!

  1. Love all your glitzy and glittery elements and the pretty card that is showcased. My favorite thing about holiday stamping is thinking of all those I am making cards for and hoping that it will brighten their day !


  2. Beautiful card! Love that twinkle. I love holiday stamping because I can add lots of glitter and metallic embossing and coloring the Christmas ornaments can be so much fun.


  3. I love making each holiday cards special for each person or individual and putting my love into each one knowing they will appreciate I handmade it just for them . Picking each stamp carefully for each individual card, Most that receives my cards know how much I put into them and cherish them just as much as the gift 💝 That brings me joy and that is what I love most about holiday stamping .


  4. Oh, that Twinkle Glitter is so pretty. I enjoy making cards for the holiday because it adds a little more joy to the wonder of the holiday season.


  5. Well, I like to personalize my cards for my family, so my favorite thing about holiday stamping is thinking about that particular family member while I’m creating their own card. That twinkle glitter looks awesome!


  6. I just love working with the holiday papers, stamps, and dies.
    It’s a fun time of year and there are so many things I want
    to do and just not enough time to get them all done. You
    can go overboard and people don’t look at you like
    you’re obsessed. it’s expected to be over-the-top
    at Christmas. I love the glitter around the pine
    cone and ribbons. The shading and coloring
    is fantastic.
    thanks for sharing.


  7. Glitter runs through my veins so this is going to be a wonderful week for me! It is just what I need after battling (and losing the battle) pneumonia and some major heart problems for almost 2 months now!
    Thank you for refilling my glitter meter! Looking forward to seeing what the designers have created! TFS,


  8. My favorite thing about holiday stamping is making each card reflect the recipient in some way! Using their favorite colors, basing the card on their favorite Christmas carol or childhood memory of Christmas or adding their favorite animal to the card! The one thing that is on EVERY single card is glitter or embossing powders! Many times I create a mix of glitter and embossing powder to match the rest of the card! As we all know, you can never have too much shimmer and shine! TFS!


  9. My favorite thing about holiday stamping is all the glitter and shine…..plus it is a good excuse to get inky! 😉 Love the new Twinkle glitter…so pretty…random shapes AND a big jar…what more could you ask for!!! 🙂
