 Hello everyone!!! 

Today I have some exciting news to share. I have been chosen for Kat Scrappiness Blog Design Team!!! I am so excited as there are some really cool dies and stamps at Kat Scrappiness that I cannot wait to try. 

Today Kat Scrappiness is releasing some FUN new dies and Ugly Sweater Slimline Paper Pack, along with some new fabulous embellishments.

For my first card, I created my first 5" by 7" card EVER. 

I started off by die cutting a white piece of Neenah White Cardstock using the new 5 by 7 Never Ending Rectangles Dies. I covered it with a scrap of packaging to make a shaker pocket that I filled with Kat Scrappiness Mirrored Clear Starlight Sequins. I adhered the pocket to a white, 5 by 7 card base.

I then die cut three wire cover panels using the NEW Kat Scrappiness 5 by 7 Diamond Wire and Woodgrain Die. I adhered all three panels together using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue and then adhered stacked die cuts over the shaker panel.

I used the new KS Just Have Faith Sentiment w/ Shadow Die for my sentiment. I cut out the word three times-two from white cardstock and once out of mirrored cardstock. I adhered all three layers together, with the mirror cardstock on the top. I had this mirror paper in my stash and I thought it was the PERFECT match to the sequins in my shaker!!! Next, I glued the sentiment over the matching shadow that was die cut from light blue paper and adhered that to my card front.

My last step was to use Sparkling Snow Pearl Mix over the intersections of the diamonds and my card was complete. I LOVE how this came out.

I created a cute Christmas scene for my second card. 

I started off by cutting down a panel of a piece of the Ugly Sweater Slimline Papers and adhered it over a Mini Slimline, White Card base. I created a shaker using the middle die of the NEW Reversed Scallop Mini Slimline Dies w/Hello, Mini Slimline Acetate Sheets and the NEW Glistening Tinsel Sequin Mix.

I stamped, colored and die cut two Quokkas using the Dressed Up Quokkas Stamps and Dies. I then stamped, colored and die cut the little elf outfits, the tree, the candy canes and the presents using the Kat Scrappiness Quokka Christmas Costume Stamps and matching dies. In random areas of the stamped images, I used Glossy Accents and a clear sparkle pen.

I then created a little scene across the front of the shaker. I added some tree decorations by adhering some of the new Christmas Funfetti Sprinkle Mix. It was perfect for this sized tree!!!

My last step was to add some Kat Scrappiness Gold Pearls to the hats, belts and shoes of these darling Quokkas. I definatly know who I am sending this card to!

I hope you like the cards I created. To see some other FABULOUS cards by the Design Team and enter to win a PRIZE, hop on over to the Kat Scrappiness Blog!!!
