Two for Tuesday: Silent Night & Simple Stockings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ve got double the fun for you! I’m going to share a beautiful card that one of my Holiday Retreat Attendee’s made for the card swap, and I have a super simple way to deck out your Holiday Paper Pumpkin Stocking.

I am thrilled to share a pretty card from my Guest Stamper: Jennifer F. What I love about this card is that Jen took a staple from her stamp collection and created this a fresh new holiday look …

Lovely as a Tree just received a lovely update … I love how it is framed with the use of the Circle Framelits Dies and the Softly Falling Textured Embossing Folder.

The “two” on this Tuesday is an Alternative Project to the November 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. These little stockings are so easy to work with and a Gift Card tucks nicely inside … so hang them on the tree or use them on the gift.

I teamed up my Paper Pumpkin with the fun and amazing Stitched Felt Embellishments from the Quilted Christmas Product Suite. Just a quick dab on All Purpose Glue and your stockings are ready to hang… and I added some pretty ribbon so you can do that!

Projects & Stamp Sale & Tips … Oh My!! It’s all here!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ve got a cute project to share and some stampin’ tips that can be used on any projects!!

Stampin’ Up! has produced yet ANOTHER fabulous Paper Pumpkin kit! This November’s kit is filled with adorable mini Christmas stockings. And they are super fast and easy to assemble for gifting as is.

I didn’t change much on this little stocking at all … Basically I extended the Cherry Cobble part of the tag so it shows at the top and bottom, wrapped the leaves around the tag, and ….

… used my new Stampin’ Blends to color the clothes pins that were included in the kit! That’s right, you can color any of our wood elements, rhinestones, pearls, accents or enamel shapes with the Stampin’ Blends.

Next… I jazzed up the stocking a bit by using the Gold Star Sequins from my October Paper Pumpkin kit, just add a touch of Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I choose the stars because of the gold tree and the star at the top… it just ties it all together.

Ready for one more awesome idea? Oh yea … Here it is ~


You can use the Stampin’ Blends on the stocking to die it to match the October card … how awesome is that!! I love this, and you can make it any color.

If you can’t get enough … join me and the rest of the Paper Pumpkin family on a FACEBOOK LIVE event  …

Champagne -n- Sparkle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back today with another of my retreat cards! The Year of Cheer product suite was a great way to send off our stampers on our final stamping session … our grand finale!

Today’s card features the beautiful sparkly pattern from the Year of Cheer Designer Paper and the Champagne Foil paper… add a piece of Window Sheet and you have a spectacular card.

The designer paper and foil was layered to hid the window sheet, but my true trick for this card was to stamp your greeting before assembling the card! The sweet sentiment comes from the “Add a Little Glitz” stamp set found on page 21 of the Holiday Catalog.

I also barrowed the die cut snowflake from the “Swirly Snowflake Thinlets Dies”. This is one of the bundles I have highlighted earlier so go back through my posts and discover even more great cards.

Thanks from sharing a part of your day with me today, and I’ll see you again tomorrow 🙂







JOY in Silver & Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s video … Today I have a stunning card created with the Year of Cheer Product Suite.

I created this card for our 2017 Annual Holiday Stampin’ Retreat … it truly highlights many of the wonderful products from the suite.

Done is Silver and Gold this card is sure to add glitz to the holiday. The pretty pattern from the designer paper was the basis of the card. I also wanted to showcase the Snowflake folder so we embossed it in silver. A strip of gold washi tape ties the two pieces together.

Next, I wanted to create a focal point for the card … the greeting!  I stamped a snowflake in silver and set aside to dry. (You can heat set to dry as well) Once dry, I stamped the greeting in gold (or VersaMark) and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I used the Circle Framelit dies to cut out my greeting and then cut a scalloped edge circle in gold to mat the greeting and tie it all together with the other silver and gold.

To complete the card, we cut one of the beautiful Foil Snowflakes in half and adhered it over the washi tape … yet it allowed that touch of gold to still be seen. I cased portions of this card from one I found on Pinterest.

Hope you enjoyed the card and got a glimpse of how all these products go together so beautifully. I have another for you tomorrow… we’ll celebrate in Champagne!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have yourself a wonderful Friday ~
