Simply Sunday: Shine Bright

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed you yesterday, no issues … just took the day off.  With the holidays coming up and new staff to train, I don’t get too many days off lately, but I did spend the morning stamping with my Stamp Clubs … a little holiday gathering.  Cookies, hot chocolate, more sweets and of course stamping, and today I’m going to share with you a simple card that we made using the Shine Bright bundle.

The Shine Bright Bundle includes the Shine Bright Cling Stamp Set and the Jolly Season Dies. You can create custom die-cut Christmas trees, stars, and holly boughs in record time using the Stitched Brightly Dies.

On our first card, we only used the die strip that has the trees which were cut in Garden Green.  I began with a 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece and ran it through my die cut machine.  Then I trimmed each tree piece down to 2-3/4″ x 2″. We matted the tree with Very Vanilla cardstock but before we attached it … we painted a little Wink of Stella in the center so it would show through the tree … so subtle but pretty.

Our background comes from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper … it features traditional toile designs in classic Christmas colors–the perfect paper for a cozy Christmas.  There are 12 sheets of designer paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  This paper is so pretty … our greeting was stamped inside!

We used the pattern with the sleigh and carolers … now you can see why we did not want to cover any of this pretty paper up, even with a greeting!

This bundle can do so much more, so for the next few days, I will be sharing additional samples with you. It unfortunately is on the discontinued list … but, if you purchase this bundle through me, you will not only get your Virtual Rewards point but you’ll receive a Hand Stamped Thank you card from me along with a special little gift.

Please let me know if you have any questions … I’ll be back tomorrow with another beautiful card that is totally different from todays! You’ve got to love the versitility.

Thank  you for joining me … Have an amazing day!

Wrapped in Plaid Bundle …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am sharing some cute Christmas cards featuring the Wrapped in Plaid bundle! That Pine Tree punch makes cardmaking quick -n- easy!  I will be sharing several samples that I created, some from the Greek Isles Incentive Trip and from our Holiday Stamping Retreat … all to show the versatility of this bundle.

This little beauty was created from scraps …

I had the squares left over as well which I layered onto a gold background to pull the gold out of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper.  Since I wanted the tree to be my focal point of my card, I added a piece of Vellum Cardstock cut from the Stitched Framelits Dies. I then embossed my Christmas tree with the Country Floral embossing folder.

Check out all the goodies include in the product suite ….

This card was created for the Greek Isles Incentive Trip swap and shared for all of us to see ….

I created this card in a jiffy … This little cutie is my #1 card for views & saves on Pinterest! I always said that “simple” works … we all have busy lives, so whatever helps us is a win, win!

I used the Gold Edged-Foil and Envelopes set for the base of my card … and the gold trim is already on there to enhance the gold strips in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper so it’s the perfect choice.  Once the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper was attached, I die cut a circle and punched the tree into it.

This next card is one that we made at our Holiday Stamping Retreat … It’s so cute!

Another one from retreat using the Wrapped in Plaid but stamped in Non-Traditional colors …

Oh my … I found another from our Greek Isles cruise …

I have one more that I’d like to share with you. This card was one of the swap cards at my Holiday Stamping Retreat … This bundle can really create a wonderful array of card styles! What’s Your Style?

Thank you for hanging out me today!

I hope you enjoyed all these samples, and if this bundle is on your wish list … don’t let it slip through your fingers, it’s on the retirement list.

The Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am sharing cards I created with the Itty Bitty Christmas bundle and a couple from Stampin’ Up! It is amazing how different each card turned out … I wanted to show the different elements of the stamp set and dies to demonstrate how versatile this bundle is.

The first card is bursting with holiday flair and is decked out in gold.  The floral pattern really highlights the greeting and ties in the gold throughout the card so nicely. The Shades Spruce and Cherry Cobbler look so regal together and are compliments of the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer paper.

Here is another sample that highlights the floral dies cuts … I love these, they actually look more like a metal embellishment than a die cut piece of cardstock!! They also used the die cut image to create a fun background on this card.

My second card is so different from the first in that we have created our own “Shimmer” paper by spritzing the beautiful Seaside Spray from our 2019 – 2021 In Color collection.  For a little more sparkle, the snowflakes are cut from the Sparkle Shimmer Paper! But wait … there is one more layer of sparkle when I added the Rhinestones to the snowflakes.

My last card of the three is just simply elegant and done with White and Silver … and yes, graced with a touch of glitter. Instead of die cutting the image and adhering it to the base as I did in the first card, I actually cut it out of the front and used it to impose a second layer to the card… stunning.

I have another samples the highlights the foliage die …

If you didn’t know these cards were from the same stamp set/dies … you might not know that they were!  Stop back tomorrow and I will show you how these holiday cards will be turned into everyday cards!!

Thanks for checking in with me today … meet you back here tomorrow.

Have some fun today!

Simply Sunday: Reflections of Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you enjoying the Holiday Catalog and all the goodies inside? It’s a fabulous catalog … isn’t it! However, I want to remind you of the beautiful stamp sets that we have in our Annual Catalog … so, today I’m going to share some great cards that were created with the stamp sets you will find in it …

One of my favorites is the Merry Christmas to all (and the coordinating dies) This is perfect if you need to make quick -n- easy cards, and don’t feel bad about that because we are all busy … just pair it with one of our beautiful designer papers.

One this card I simply used the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes … embossed a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and used the die cuts to create an impressive greeting!

My next card highlights the stamp set … just add designer paper!!

Another one of my favorites that you will find in the Annual catalog will not only satisfy your holiday card making needs, but will extend throughout the year … WINTER WOODS STAMP SET:

This beautiful card was created by one of my friends and downline members; Kathy Czerwinski.  This card is simply stamped multiple times … the lighter trees were “stamped off” first before stamping onto her cardfront.

Let’s take that same stamp set and use it for the perfect birthday card …

I used that same stamping technique that Kathy did by stamping off … add some designer paper and you have the perfect quick -n- easy cards.

I have one more from the Winter Woods stamp set …

I love the simplicity of this card … this is another that would work perfectly for a birthday or thinking of you card. Replace the red glimmer paper behind the stamped tree and use your (or their) favorite color.  I embossed the background with the Woodland Embossing Folder … this adds texture to the card.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at what you could create with these amazing stamp sets. I love the Holiday Catalog but our Annual Catalog is one of the best tools you can get your hands on … so many great samples, fun and informative tips and a whole bunch of cools stuff to satisfy our creative habit!

Thanks for hanging out with me on this Sunday,

I hope you have a beautiful day.
