CAS Metallic Christmas Card Drunken Stampers-Thing: Metal (Anything Metal or Metallic)

This week at Drunken Stampers our challenge is to make a card/project featuring Metal (Anything Metal or Metallic)!  Enter your project anytime between November 30-December 6th at 11:59 pm PST and have the chance to win the ultimate title of The Life of the Party!

First of all I need to apologize for the quality of the photos of my CAS card.  I took one with a flash and one without.  The one with flash allows you to see the metallic cardstock.  The one below, without the flash, shows the metallic stickers in a better light.
I ran the silver cardstock through a Cricut embossing folder (older Christmas Companion set) and then distressed it with Archival Red Geranium ink and a distressing tool.  I added a metallic stickers...the saying and snowflakes.  A crystal was added to the center ornament.

Come on over and join the party at Drunken Stampers!  Make a card/project featuring Metal (Anything Metal or Metallic) and have the chance to be The Life of the Party!

Holiday Home Decor-All That Stickles Linky Party

It's fun to be able to glitz up a inexpensive item with some Stickles! I found this green felt (stiff) wreath at Michaels for $1.99 and felt it could be a great home decor piece to Stickle (is it a verb?).  I covered each berry with Christmas Red Stickles.  I used Golden Rod Stickles to outline the swirls.  The Stickles thin tip allowed me the ability to draw a precise line.  I knew I wanted to put cookie plate on the center of the wreath, so I did not write anything there.  

Additional Stickles could be used to outline the holly leaves, but I had no Holly Stickles...bummer.  The other greens I have were just not the correct color.

Join our Holiday Home Decor-All That Stickles Linky Party over at All That SticklesJust create a Holiday Decor item with Stickles and link it for a chance to win one of our November Sponsors' prizes.  You have until Friday, December 6th at 11:00 pm Central Time to enter.

All that Stickles Black Diamond Deals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Black Diamond Deals Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

The biggest shopping day of the year is just around the corner, and the ATS design team has put together some fun, sparkly shopping projects to help inspire those shopping lists! (And maybe the shine from all the glitter will help wake you up in the middle of the night to hit the stores!)

 If you've come from Karen N.'s blog, you're in the right place! If you've just come across the hop, please visit All that Stickles.
See the blog for the complete dimensions.
I do not like shopping.  With a healing new knee this year, I'm probably not going to do much shopping in the stores.  Online, here I come.  If I can't find what I want for a person, I will get them a gift card from their favorite store and add a small personal gift.  This was an easy gift card holder to make.  
If I was heading out on Black Friday with a friend, I put a Starbucks card inside for the caffeine we'd need for getting up so early!
  I added a button I edged with Black Diamonds Stickles as the clasp.  The black spots on the front of the holder were covered with Black Diamonds Stickles

We have blog candy for those who are a follower of All that Stickles and leave a comment on every stop of the hop! Winners will be announced Wednesday November 20th at All that Stickles.
