Last Day To Order Before Christmas

Today is the last day you can order from Stampin’ Up! and get your order before Christmas.  Is your husband or wife still looking for the perfect gift for you?  Leave your catalog by their morning coffee or tea with things circled in it and a note that says “Hurry!  Today is the last day” so you can get what you really want.  Which would you rather have ~ a tie or stamps? A frying pan or dies?  An ugly shirt or stamping supplies?

I made this card using a few products from the Holiday Catalog.   The Foil Snowflakes come in gold and silver or you can turn them over to be white.  You can even color the white side to make them any color you wish.  The snowflake is from the stamp set called Snowflake Sentiments and the ‘peace” stamp is from Christmas Quilt.  I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the center for a little sparkle.  Last but not least, the Designer Series Paper is called Year Of Cheer Specialty.  I am in love with the gold plaid, as you can tell.

Don’r forget to get that last order in before Christmas!

Club Member’s Christmas Cards Part 2

On Tuesday I showed you some of the Christmas Cards my club members made.  Every December we make Christmas cards to share with each other.  Some do the same card for each of us and some make each one different.  It is always such fun to see what they make.

Here are a few more cards they made for each other.

Don’t you think they did a great job?  I am so impressed.  Of course, they did have a great teacher (hahaha)!

Club Member’s Christmas Cards

Every year at our December meeting my club members make Christmas cards for each other.  I love it when we do this because my club members are so artistic.  It is a lot of fun to see all the different cards and all the different styles.  I thought I would show you a few of them today and the rest later on this week.  Not everyone marks the back of their cards and I forgot to write them down this time so I can’t tell you who made what.

This first set uses the Golf Foil Snowflakes that in the Holiday Catalog (card on the left) and Swirly Scribbles (card on the right).  They are both just beautiful!

The card on the left uses a stamp set that goes with a kit.  The stamp set and kit are called Watercolor Christmas.  The card on the right uses a two step stamp set called Good Tidings.  They are both gorgeous!

See, I told you my club members are so talented!  Come back in a couple days to see the rest of the cards they made.

A Stamp Off Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone!  Welcome to this week’s Stamp Off Challenge.  Today’s challenge is a sketch challenge.

I have to admit, I had a hard time with this sketch.  I just couldn’t figure it out at first.  Then I realized when I had been staring at it and staring at my stamps that the dark strip in the back could be Washi Tape.  Then things sort of fell into place.

 As you can tell, I actually did not do any stamping on this card.  Everything is either die cut, trimmer cut or punched.  The Designer Series Paper is from the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Year Of Cheer Specialty Paper.  This paper is gorgeous.  Each sheet is either gold, silver and copper.  Then I used the Starburst Punch with Gold Foil Paper.  The “Noel” is from Christmas Stockings Thinlits.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made using this sketch.  I am sure you will love whatever it is!

Hearts Come Home

This is the third card we made at our monthly club meeting.  It uses a new stamp set that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Hearts Come Home.  It has a matching set of Edgelits called Hometown Greetings and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

I absolutely love the sentiments in this stamp set.  There is “Joy To The World” that we used on this card but there is also one that says “All Hearts Come Home For Christmas”, “Wishing You A Beautiful Season And A New Year Of Peace And Happiness” , and “Enjoy The Warmth Of The Season”.   I especially love the All Hearts sentiment.  This will be the first Christmas in 37 years that Rob and I will be alone.  It is very sad but I know in my heart that my kids want to be here and would if they could.

To make this card we first embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Folder called Softly Falling.  They I used one of the dies to cut out the houses and layering it over a piece of Night Of Navy cardstock that I had cut out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I embossed the Santa and his sleigh stamp with White Embossing Powder and then layered the piece of a Whisper White scalloped oval.

Snowflake Sentiments

Often times when I am talking to people about making their own Christmas cards I am told they just don’t have time to make them.  Here is a quick and easy card you can make in no time at all.  The best part is it uses scraps of leftover Designer Series Paper that I know you have hanging around!

The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set called Snowflake Sentiments.  It has some beautiful saying with lovely fonts.  The Designer Series Paper is from the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog and is called Be Merry.

Last week Rob and I went to Alabama to visit my grand daughter, Emory Jade.  They are calling her Emy Jade now, which I think is adorable.  Anyway, I can’t believe how big she has gotten since I saw her two months ago.  She is such a cutie.  Here is a picture of her with her Dad and my son, Zachary.  We were at a food truck show which was tons of fun. Too bad, Emy Jade is not old enough to eat the great food they had.

So now you have no excuse when it comes to making your own Christmas cards.  I am sure your family and friends will love them!
