Our Ho Ho Ho comes from the “Oh, What Fun” stamp set on page 5 of the Holiday Catalog, the inside greeting I used came from the “Versatile Christmas” stamp set. You would not believe that they did not come from the same set!

My second card uses the beautiful trees paper, and we used the “Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies” for the front … Look Closely. Our greeting “Oh What Fun” and our die is a “One horse open sleigh”. Love it!

Oh What Fun!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

This month I am making Christmas cards with my groups and we are using the “Oh What Fun” stamp set, so today I’d like to share with you the post from Stampin’ Up!s Get Inspired by blog …

You know when you make a project and you love it SO much you just have to stare at it a lot and show it to everyone and admire it for days? That was me with the Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit (item 139602)!

Just last week I cracked open this kit for the first time and fell completely in love. Here’s the thing. I knew that the kit would have all the precut consumables to make 30 tags . . . but what surprised me were all the gorgeous details, how much fun I had, and how I loved them so much that I needed them out on my desk for days.


You can put these tags together however you want. I changed up the stamping a little since I wanted most of my tags to say “to/from” on the front. The images in the coordinating Oh What Fun Stamp Set (item 140386) were perfect! I used them on all the tags.




And as if all this cuteness wasn’t enough, this kit is on a great deal too! Grab your own and before you know it you’ll be falling in love with your own set of Oh What Fun handmade tags.

Happy Stamping,
Brandi B. Curriculum Developer & Trainer

I hope you enjoyed these tags as much as I did. Thanks to Brandi for the great samples.

Have an awesome day ~

Let’s Be Jolly

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a quick and simple way to whip up a card! One of the easiest way’s to create a quick card is by using one of our “Project Life” Card Collections. My card today was made with the “Seasonal Snapshot 2015” Card Collection.


The double sided, color coordinated cards come in 3 sizes, so it’s easy to layer coordinating pieces for your card. Because they are sized for a scrapbook pocket, the larger pieces may need a bit of trimming, but hey … put that piece inside your card!


I really thought the “Let’s Be Jolly” was fun and that it looks great against the background card, but I wanted a pop of color … my solution was to add one of the cute holiday buttons from the “Home for Christmas” Designer Buttons and white bakers twine.

Thank you for spending part of your day with me …

Hope you have a “Jolly” kind of day!

Flurry of Christmas Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

First I’d like to send my respects to all our past and present military … As we remember Pearl Harbor.

Today I’m going to share one of the two cards that I designed for our November Technique Club. We are focusing on the different techniques and ways to use the “Window Sheets” … part two of our class will be in their January club dates.

This card illustrates the “window” as the front of our card. The majority of the stamping is done on the inside and the window allows you to see it all.


I cut the cardstock … Marina Mist to 4-1/4″ x 11″. Then we score at 5-1/2″ … cut at 7-1/2″ and 8-1/2″. You will need that 1″ piece for the bottom of your card. Your window sheet needs to be cut to 4-1/4″ to at least 3-1/2″ or 4″ depending on how much of the window you want to secure to the back.

We used the “Softly Falling” embossing folder to create a nice pattern on the front of the card, then secured the window sheets to the inside front.

The inside is stamped in Marina Mist, Night of Navy and  Silver Encore ink with the beautiful “Flurry of Wishes” stamp set. I bundled my stamp set with the coordinating punch “Snow Flurry” to receive the 15% discount. We all love a savings a Christmas time.


We completed our cards with a simple bow using the 1/4 cotton ribbon.

If your in my neighborhood you could join us during our Saturday club session … we have a few spots available.  Check my “CLASSES & EVENTS” Click to View. Club Date is January 9th @ 9am.

Let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for joining me today.

Have a wonderful Monday!




Simply Sunday / Guest Stamper: Jenny F

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share with you a card I received from my sideline & stampin’ sister, Jenny F.

Jenny used the beautiful “Winter Wonderland” Specialty Designer Series and teamed it up with the Elegant Ornaments Bundle.


This specialty paper has a sheen to it that also adds to the elegance of the card.

The simplicity of the black and white pallet gives an elegance to the card and works great for a gender neutral card.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Hope your Sunday is Simply wonderful ~

Easy & Elegant Christmas Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back with one of the cards that we made at our Holiday Stampin’ Retreat. This card is elegant but easy to create! What an awesome combination when making Christmas cards.

Let’s begin with the “Delicate Ornament” Thinlits Dies … I chose the longer thin one. I really like the soft swirl in the design. Whisper White cardstock was used for my base and the front of my card. Using the BigShot and the Precision Base Plate I cut out the ornament. You will save both pieces as the ornament is laid back into the cut out.

(Note: the Delicate Ornament Dies are bundled with the Embellished Ornament Stamp set ~ A great buy)


The Red Foil Sheet is used for the mat and becomes the focal point as it makes the ornament pop! Look closely at my card … you will see that I had enough space to cut my greeting and the ornament top out of the foil before I adhered the card together. Just make sure you are not cutting into the area of the ornament.

My greeting comes from the Holly Jolly Greetings (Christmas) & Christmas Greetings (Merry) Bundle! I love using these two items together … so much you can do with it.

Wow … you’ve just finished the card! Wasn’t that easy … and it’s so pretty. I love the shine of the red foil paper. You can use either the Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere the ornament and “merry” … however, the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen works slick on the “merry”.


As I said, this was one of my Holiday Retreat cards, now with the new Occasions catalog out (for demonstrators now) I’m planning projects for our Spring Stampin’ Retreat. I’ve got an April date planned … make sure you’re on my mailing list to get your invitation!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a wonderful Friday!






‘Tis the Season … Birthday!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have to say a quick “Thank You” to those who participated in the Online Extravaganza!  I will be sending your “Thank You” card bundles out tomorrow!

Today I have a quick -n- cute card for you, using the “Go Wild” Designer Series Paper Stack that just hit the Weekly Deals yesterday. I teamed up this fun designer paper with the sassy “In This Together” stamp set.


The card made me think of my granddaughter … the pattern of the paper, the pop of Melon Mambo, and her skinny legs!


Oh yes … and she loves to shop! ‘Tis the Season (for shopping) and my Destiny LOVES to shop, anytime of the year!!  This will be her birthday card and on the inside I’ll write “Happy Birthday! Now let’s go shopping!” This stamp set has two other cute stamps that I have used often. It’s a great stamp set for friends.


I could have done much more coloring on this image but I wanted to just highlight her dress, shoes and matching bag! I used the Melon Mambo ink pad and blender pen to color, and then a black marker for her leggings.


Had to add a bit of the color in the front to the inside of the card too. To finish off the card I popped up the front with dimensionals and added a bit of bling as her buttons.

Just a simple, fun card that has that bit of a wild side flair!! What girl wouldn’t love it!

Hope you have a wonderful day … and thank you for stopping by. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing another card done with this awesome designer paper!
