Santa is coming!

Hello, stampers! Today, I am sharing another Christmas card I made for this years Christmas mailing. The HOLIDAY HOME stamp set really is an awesome set and I know I will get lots of uses with it! Such a fun card to make! I felt like I was in art class making this card. : )
Colors are Cherry Cobbler, Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray and Basic Black. 

I used my Blendabilities to color the center house, while the other 2 were just stamped in Black onto Basic Gray card stock and cut out using the HOMEMADE HOLIDAY Framelits Dies.

Snowflake Thinlit Card

Hello, stampers! Today, I am sharing a fun Christmas card I made using the SNOWFLAKE CARD THINLITS DIES with the matching LETTERPRESS WINTER stamp set.  Here it is:
Colors are: Blue Lagoon, Soft Sky and Silver.  On the left side of the card, I added a strip of white cardstock and a piece of ALL IS CALM DESIGNER WASHI TAPE to make it a full sized card.  I stamped the smallest snowflake from the Letterpress Winter stamp set along with the snowflake from the Holiday Home stamp set randomly onto the Blue Lagoon piece after it was die cut.  The large snowflake was stamped in Blue Lagoon and cut it out using the Snowflake card thinlit die. I then added a Silver Foil snowflake and a Soft Sky snowflake topped off with a basic pearl. 

When you open it up, the inside snowflake has the word "joy" which is another die from this awesome set.  Season's Greetings is stamped and embossed in Silver embossing powder.
Below is a close up of the beautiful snowflake this thinlit die makes. : )

Endless Wishes of Festival Trees...

Hello!  Today, I am sharing another Christmas card that I am sending out this year.   The FESTIVAL OF TREES and the TREE punch from the Holiday Catalog and I have become quite close friends this year. : )  

The colors are: Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Silver and White.  I stamped the snowflakes from the ENDLESS WISHES stamp set in Versamark and embossed with White and Silver embossing powder.  I punched 3 trees out of DAZZLING DETAILS Glimmer paper and added a Silver Foil paper star to one of them. The Designer paper is from last years Holiday catalog.

Last night, Stampin' UP! had their Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalog kick-off!  It was so much fun, and I am glad I did not let the potential MN weather deter me from signing up and attending. There are LOTS of goodies in the upcoming catalogs!!
AND this year, Sale-a-bration starts at the same time as the release of the 2015 Occasions catalog! Yipee!!! Get ready....it all starts JANUARY 6, 2015! Hoot-Hoot!

Okay,  I must move back to our current holiday: Christmas!  Here is a little show and tell of another Christmas project stamp club ladies made.  See what you could have received in your mailbox if you were a part of my online hostess club? It's a shaker card - but we did not use foam tape. We used regular tape so that we could still mail it without extra cost! : ) 

We used the HOLIDAY HOME  stamp set with the matching HOMEMADE HOLIDAY Framelits. The shaker card is filled with white sequins to make it look like its snowing!
Colors are: Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky.  The vellum piece of cardstock was stamped with snowflakes from this cute set and embossed with white embossing powder.  We added 1/8" SILVER  ribbon and FROSTED SEQUINS  and then outlined the house tops with  SILVER SPARKLE DAZZLING DETAILS glitter.  BTW: Doesn't the FILIGREE embossing folder kinda make it look like wind blowing around?  Well, I think it kinda does!

I hope you like my show and tell for today!  A very fun card to make and share!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great stamping day!
