Rudolph Day - can you guess.....

Hello There - Happy Rudolph Day Everyone!!

Can you guess I have two new dies from Memory Box which was given to me by a special friend recently.  You know who you are.  So I just had to have a play with my NBUS...





New Spellbinders dies which I used my Birthday Voucher to buy.....love 'em.  I have used my cards that I am not keen on too!  

No! This isn't a dodgy photo - I have cut it twice, and layered the holly over the top to give it a 3D effect.
This background paper is eons of years old so V VOS!!  This is now the last piece used up.  

Metallic card is not usually my "thing" but I could not resist using it on these cards.   The Merry Christmas sentiments are also VOS - pre this century at least!

I am now up to nearly 40 C Cards in my collection so as there are only three more Rudolph Days before The Day I had better get a shimmy on with my C card making!

I am linking this up with my Buddy's Rudolph Day and Pixie's Snippets Playground as there are many Snippets used here. 

Thanks for calling by.

Wow - love these cards. Got that MB candle die on order, & love how you used it here. Don't have any of the gothic windows either. Found a neat site that has been using the windows for Halloween cards. Let me know if you'd like the link. Abso-tively gorgeous cards, and thanks for all the fab ideas on the MB die. Hugs.

Metallic card works so well for Christmas. That die is to die for and I love the fact that you are using up your "vintage" paper. Well done to you. Now I need to get my but into gear and make some too.

Lovely cards there Sam - and MB dies certainly are going great guns this year in designs. I had to have the candle one as well - of course :) Very disciplined of you to use up those papers too.

I did laugh at Mrs A splitting that there was to be baking here. 'Tis true, Victoria sponge later on today but you'll have to fight Len for a piece!

Hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Hugs, Di xx

Well, if you can't do metallic at Christmas, when can you?! I think the gilded candles look amazing, and I love the effect of them against those fab embossed backgrounds - so effective. Steaming ahead with the Christmas makes there...

Love how you used those dies. New toys are so much fun aren't they? Love how you can make so many variations with the same die. Beautiful!

You did indeed have a play, Sam, and you have beautiful results to show for it! What a fantastic candle centerpiece. I love all the ways you have showcased it!!

Wow...you did great!

Love the layered one the best but must say that I love them all.
The metallic die cuts against that blue script just looks so stunning.
Love the woodgrain EF one too...
They all look so good and I smiled when you said you even liked the one on the card base you didn't like! teeehee
I have some card bases I don't care for either but try to tart up a bit and suddenly I do like them!
