Two for Tuesday: Carols of Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Tuesday to you! Today I have double the “Carols of Christmas” from the Merry Little Christmas Product Suite, one of which is the winner from our 2017 Holiday Stampin’ Retreat.

Let’s start with the card that I cased from Dawn Olchefske (a fellow demonstrator who does beautiful cards). I was drawn to Dawn’s card right away by the beautiful simplicity of the card …

The “Merry Little Christmas” Designer Series paper is the backdrop to this card. The focal point is created by cutting the trees from the “Card Front Builder” Thinlits Dies out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper … the deer in black to coordinate with the rest of the card.

Next, I’d like to share with you the Winner of our Attendee Swap at our Holiday Retreat this year … Guest Stamper: Cindy P.

Our retreat attendee’s vote for the swap cards they like best and the winner receives a Gift Certificate from me to do a little extra Christmas Shopping from the catalog.

Cindy used the “Carols of Christmas” bundle from our Holiday Catalog … stunning! I love the Night of Navy tree’s behind the Silver Glimmer trees, it appears as a shadow and really makes the silver pop!

If you can’t get enough of the Merry Little Christmas product suite which includes the Carols of Christmas bundle … head on over to my website to see more samples! CLICK HERE TO VIEW

Thank you for stopping by today, hope your day is double the fun!



Brightly Lit Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy  Monday!! Today I have a beautiful card to share that our Stamp Club did last month. I also want to let you know that TODAY ONLY …. FREE SHIPPING!!

We made this card from the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  This is one of those stamp sets I just had to have … it reminded me of Christmas’ past. Everything about this bundle just brought back some beautiful memories. 

The designer paper comes from the “Christmas Around the World” … not only the plaid design but the wreath and bow!! The dies from the bundle fit perfectly with the designs on the paper.

The lamp post has two different styles of lights … I chose the ones that have the coordinating dies that cut out the “gold” we put behind the lamp! I love it when the light hits it because it appears to actually be lit up… it brings it to life. I borrowed the greeting from a favorite Christmas stamp set for last year (still available) … the Star of Light stamp set found on page 122.

These two stamp sets really make a good team, I think the verbiage works well with the lamp post! I also think FREE Shipping goes good with all your wants and must haves in either catalog!!

CYBER MONDY SALE …. 24 hours Only!

Simply Sunday: Guest Stamper … Cindy C.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a fun Christmas card to share with you created by our Guest Stamper: Cindy C.  This was one of our attendee swap cards at the Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat.

This simple sweet card was created using the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer paper stack. Cindy simply cut out the pretty trees from one of the several designs.

With just a little  ribbon and some oval cuts … our greeting highlights the entire card. Our retreat swaps are so much fun, and the talent and beautiful cards that are shared … amazing!!

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!

I see some of you took part in our 24-hour Sale (THANK YOU!!) There are plenty of items on the shopping list, so just click the link below.  Don’t forget the Clearance Rack too.

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  …
