Merry Christmas Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a chance to check out my Simply Sunday Christmas tree yesterday, because today I’m going to use the second part of that tree for my card.

This time I dyed the wood piece Old Olive by sponging on the color from the ink pad. It colors nicely and I added a bit of chocolate chip marker to the trunk of my tree.
000_2956

Of course my tree comes from the “Seasonal Snapshot 2015” a Project Life kit as I stated yesterday, there are just so many more pieces that include Halloween, School and Thanksgiving!

I used the “Merry Moments” Designer Series Paper again to give you more ideas for your paper.

Again I mounted the tree onto the front with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also used the cute stickers to create my greeting. My greeting comes from the “Oh What Fun” stamp set!

000_2960

Hope you enjoyed … I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Have a fabulous Monday ~

Simply Sunday: Christmas Tree

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back today after a one day break to do some Christmas shopping and to plan an upcoming “Sale-a-Bration” stamp camp!! Oh the new stamps … Oh what fun!!

Today my card comes from the “Seasonal Snapshot 2015” Project Life Accessory Pack.  This kit is fabulous for accenting your Project Life scrapbook pages, but it also works great for quick cards too!

000_2952

I chose the Christmas tree die-cut wood specialty card from the packet and popped out the tree … you see, they die cut the card but you get both pieces!!

I love the “Merry Moments” Designer Series Paper and picked one of the plaid patterns. I used the Cherry Cobbler from the “Merry Moments” Cardstock pack … this is a great way get all the colors you need for your cardmaking.

Then I simply mounted the tree onto the front with our Stampin’ Dimensionals … super simple.  I also found the cute little greeting sticker in my kit, so I added it to complete my card.

000_2953

Hope you enjoyed … Stop back tomorrow and see what I did with the other part of the tree die-cut!

Thanks for spending a part of your day with me.

Have a beautiful Sunday ~

Throw-back Thursday: Christmas Past

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Christmas cards from Christmas’ past.  I’m taking cards that can still be made with a change of designer paper or so.

I’d like to start with my JOY card using the  “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and “Wonderful Wreath” Framelits … that is where the Joy and the Bow come from. This card comes from my November 2014 files and is still current today!

000_1652-BThe wreath framelit coordinates with our new “Peaceful Wreath” in the Holiday catalogs and is still available.

This quick and easy card can also be made today with our “Star’s Framelits” and any designer paper you love, and a touch of ribbon!

000_1625

We also have some great holiday greetings sets. My favorite is the Versatile Christmas stamp set (CLICK HERE).

140392G

My tree card comes from the “Festival of Trees” stamp set and the “Tree” punch which are both still available to order.

000_1734_0001You could add any designer paper as a background to add more color. This year we have then new “Peaceful Pines” stamp set which can be bundled with the Perfect Pines Framelit Dies!

Looking for a super simple card to make? So true … some of us do not have our cards done yet, so here’s the answer … Designer Paper, a greeting and a bow!

000_1545

This card is so easy to make and will still leave quite an impression! Just think of all the beautiful designer papers in the holiday catalog.

I hope this gave you a few more ideas. The last one would work great for birthdays too!

Thank you for joining me today.
