CHRISTMAS STAMP-A-STACK SAMPLES - #2


Hi, again, Stampers!
     We went with some retro ornaments for this group of cards (two more below).  We made just one of each of these.  The dies are from the retired Delicate Ornaments set and we used sentiments from several current and retired Christmas sets, including Embellished Ornaments, the stamp set that coordinates with the Delicate Ornaments dies.  I usually keep holiday sets for several years because of the sentiments.
     As you can see, we did use several current items - the Mercury Glass Acetate, Real Red Glimmer Paper and gold and silver Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes.  Here are two more cards from this group.

STAMPIN' UP!'S YEAR-END CLOSEOUT STARTS DECEMBER 3!

Hello, Stampers!
     Beginning December 3 and while supplies last, you can save big on a selection of retiring and surplus items including select Holiday Catalog items, stamp sets, and Paper Pumpkin past kits. 
     Please remember to use my current Host Code (top of the sidebar) and SHOP EARLY to avoid missing out! Supplies are limited and popular items will sell out quickly. The sale ends January 2.


Happy Sthoppin'!

CHRISTMAS STAMP-A-STACK SAMPLES - #1

Hello, Stampers!
     It's been a while!  I've been busy furniture painting and preparing for last Saturday's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack.  This is the first of the five cards we made (4 each).*  It is really quite simple and I think you can duplicate it just by looking at the supplies we used below.  The main ingredients are the Merry Moose Bundle** and it is based on the template for the sample on page 4 of the Holiday Catalog!  More info HERE.

FREE AS A BIRD EASY TRANSITION


Hi, Stampers!
     I've neglected my blog and stamping lately for furniture painting, but now I'm between layers and can post.
     We created the above card at July Stamp Camp (see my post dated July 17).  I thought it might look cute for Christmas with some Chickadees and plaid, so here it is.  I kind of wish the branch didn't have flowers on it and tried to disguise them as berries with Shimmery Crystal Effects and embellishments - not necessarily successfully, but I still like it. Click here for the details.



Happy Stampin’!

IT'S STILL FALL AND I DO LOVE FALL COLORS! + STAMPIN' TRIMMER


Hi, Stampers!
     It's about time, you say?  I just realized my last post was almost 10 days ago!  Time flies when you're having fun (or re-painting furniture) and losing a day to computer issues.  BUT, I digress.
     First, the new Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer (Paper Trimmer, item 152392, $25.00 US) will be available November 1st!  Click the image below to go to my October 6 post for more details.  (Multi-packs of cutting blades will be available in January.)



    Now, about this beautiful fall card.  If you own the lovely new Gathered Leaves Dies, yay!  I don't.  Do you have the Colorful Seasons set and Seasonal Layers dies? Then you're all set to create some great projects similar to those showcased with the Come Together suite!  Details here.


Happy Stampin’!
