Two of my most favorite stamping artsits on SCS have BRAND NEW BLOGS! I have been so very inspired by these talented stampers, I just HAD to let you all know about them!
The first is Nancy Morgan, aka ncmorgan on SCS. My favorites file is FILLED with her artwork! Her cards ALWAYS catch my eye when browsing the gallery!

ncmorgan's new blog, Paper Smiles: HERE
The second is Chat Wszelaki, aka nitestamper on SCS. If you've spent ANY time on SCS, you've seen Chat's work! Not only is her work over-the-top gorgeous, unique and creative but she does every single SCS challenge ... every day, in addition to her full-time, night shift nursing job!

This card is a CASE of nitestamper's card found HERE. The only changes I made include: a) changed the colors and DP, b) some different bling on the tree, and c) I used the Word Window Punch for the slot in the Old Olive layer that the DP strip goes through, instead of the oval punch.
I had my card all put together with the intention of stamping the "Merry Christmas" sentiment in Very Vanilla Craft Ink as my last step. Well ... this was my very first time using my new Very Vanilla Craft Ink Pad .... let's just say, I think it was defective so I opted for Black Classic. Stampin' Up! is so great about that kind of thing though ... just called them up and they are replacing the defective pad!
The Perfect Presentation tree is stamped twice with the second raised on Stampin' Dimensionals. There is a Red Rhinestone Brad through the starburst of the tree. The circle tag is also stamped twice with the center "Dec. 25" raised on a dimensional.
