Hold on to your hats....

....don't fall off your seat! I'm back! Things are looking up here in my little stamping world. Now that I'm feeling better, the inspiration has come back to me. The only thing that drags me down is the fact that my clothes are beginning to fit a little tight - kinda makes the chocolate and stamping not go hand and hand. The really bad thing is that I lent out all of my maternity clothes, so I'm left with workout pants to wear - IF I want to be comfortable.

Anyway - I created 4 - that's right FOUR - cards today. Granted, they are all the exact same card, but each with a twist. That's where I need YOUR help. Leave me a comment and let me know which one of the 4 you like the best....I'd love to hear your opinions!

So, I started with these two cards:

they are the same - with one minor difference. The card that is laying flat, the medallion is stamped using the Frost White Shimmer Paint (found in the Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog). The card that is standing is heat embossed using Irredescent Ice EP. Here is a close up of the Irredescent Ice card:

And here is a close up with the Frost White Shimmer Paint:

Now, again - the same card, except this time I used the flourish from the Baroque Motifs set, the one standing up is heat embossed with Irridescent Ice, and the one laying flat is Frost White Shimmer paint:

And a close up the Irridescent Ice:

And now the Frost White Shimmer Paint:

The buttons used were from the Playground Designer Buttons Set and the ribbon in the bundled ribbon that can be found in the mini.
So, tell me - which one do you like best???
And, since I've been inspired lately - be sure to check back again tomorrow - I've got yet another creation to show you!!! Impressed, aren't you????
Thanks -

My favs are the ones using the shimmer paint ... there's just something about that frosty shimmery look that really catches my eye ... especially for a Christmas card. Glad you're back and feeling better ... we've missed you!
