Fave Five of 2014 and a Linky Party!

Hi Everyone! 

I was not planning a post today, but I could not resist linking up to a new-to-me blog.  It started at Vicki D.'s blog, where she shared her favorite 5 Christmas cards made in 2014.  She then linked up to Debby's blog, who has some simply amazing creations to share, as well as a linky party for anyone to share their favorite 5 Christmas cards.
I decided to give it a go, so here we are-

 One of the last cards I made this Christmas season, a clean and simple card using Top Dog Dies Cool Cats and Darling Deer. Sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I love how this turned out. 

I initially was going for a red on red card, with the contrast being the white snowflakes, but there was just not enough punch to it.  I used the inlaid die technique here, I think my fave new technique for 2014.  I used Top Dog Dies Darling Deer and Merry Christmas dies here.

All of the sentiments are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I have been wanting to try this collage of sentiments for some time, but was not able to do it well until purchasing my new favorite gadget of 2014, my Misti.  I love the classic look of this clean and simple card.

I could not go through a season without using my all time favorite snowman!  He is covered in clear glitter and is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

This one surprised me!  I love this nativity scene and wanted to do it up in neutrals.  As I played around with designs and papers, somehow this chevron paper made its way to the craft table.  While very busy, I love how it adds a punch of color and brings out the nativity.  This is also a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps stamp. 

That's it for me!  Off to link up to the linky party! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed last week of 2014!
