Welcome to the 4th annual Justine Hovey's 12 Days of Christmas Video Hop.  I am so excited to participate.  The series runs from today to November 4th.  Justine has arranged various prizes from different sponsors.  

This is the perfect way to get motivated to start preparing for sending out Christmas cards.  

For my card today, I used all Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp sets.  I started with Holiday Background on kraft cardstock.  Next I added Wow! Coconut Ice embossing powder and heat set it.


For my Christmas tree I used Color Me Trees onto colored cardstock and used various Copics to color it in.  For the banner and sentiment I used the Give Thanks stamp set.  To finish up my card, I used clear Wink of Stella and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Now for the fun part.... THE GIVEAWAYS!

  • 5 gift certificates to Simon Says Stamp for $10
  • 3 sets of 10 Christmas cards made by Justine Hovey
  • A choice of Mini or Original MISTI
All you have to do is watch the videos and answer the key question in each video.  Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channels and don't forget to hit the like button.  

Winners will be announced on Justine's Channel on November 7th.

Please enjoy my video and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas.  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Lovely card... love the subtle gold in the background. Our tree has white lights but the rest of our house is encased in colored lights.

  4. Cute card, but I LOVE the Christian themed background on your card. We've gone to a strictly Christian themed background for our Christmas tree. That's what Christmas is really all about for us!!!

  8. Beautiful card! We have a tree that already has the lights on it, and bc my husband and I like diffetent kinds of lights on our Christian themed tree, (I like white and he likes multi-colored) we compromised! Our pre-lit tree has white lights that fade into multi colors! Thanks for the opportunity to win and have a blessed day!

  11. Great Christmas card, I love how you used the Misti to attach your card front....what a great idea and one more day reason to use mine! I have a tree with pre-lit lights and I can change it from clear to colours used lights.....I have it in clear most if the time.

  16. Great card! I must say though, I feel that the MISTI has changed my stamping completely. I feel like my cards have a more professional look and I always make 4 cards of each design. Just seems as easy to make 4 as to make one! My next goal is to invest in the original sized MISTI. Unfortunately, my craft budget isn't very big since my husband passed away. I am hinting that it would be a perfect Christmas gift for my kids and grandkids to go in together for Gramzy! (hehe)!

  19. Great card! I do like the white lights, but my preference is the colored lights- my Christmas tree so pretty with the lights in the room dimmed!
