Today is the last day … Take a look back at my Fav’s!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s here … that last day we can order from the Holiday catalog! It’s a sad day to see some of our favorites leaving us, so if there is something you just have to have, let’s do it today…. or it won’t be there tomorrow.

What was your favorite? I know … there are too many to name but I will share one of my fav’s. Oh you knew it would be one of the Halloween sets.  Actually .. it’s an entire suite! MONSTER BASH … I just love it!! There are so many fun projects and cards you can make with this one, and here are a few …

Let’s start with the fun little Coffin Boxes …

Coffin Treat Box 150451

My grandkids got a thrill out of these little treat boxes. What a cute way to stash a treat!

Are you ready to step it up a bit?

Here is one of the “Double Z-Fold Technique” cards I made with my stamp clubs …

We also did a couple “W-Fold Technique” cards in my stamp clubs. These are so cool and a fun way to display all of the cute images from this bundle …

Fully open …

We even used the Monster Bash Designer paper with the Mini Curvy Keepsake boxes to create more little treat giving projects! Fun little gifts to give the kiddo’s for place on your co-workers desk…

I must say that I love the glitz and beautiful holiday bundles they had this year, so many to choose from. One of my favorite stamp sets that is leaving for good is one that was on my “Must Have” list. Here are a few that I created with the GOD’S PEACE Stamp set …

Thanks for taking the time to check out my favorites today. Please let me know if I can help you pick up your favorites before they are gone for good.

Have a great day, I’ll see you tomorrow with a great card I created with another of my fav’s… this one from the NEW Jan-June 2020 Holiday Catalog.

Here is one of the cards that I created with the Night Before Christmas Memories & More …

Did you know…

… that yesterday was the Christmas Poem Day? The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement C. Moore (‘Twas the night before Christmas…) was published in 1823. The poem, which has been called “arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American,” is largely responsible for some of the conceptions of Santa Claus from the mid-nineteenth century to today.

I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and thank you for being part of my stamping circle. Life is so much better when your surrounded by friends.

Merry Christmas ~

 

 

Christmas Card Parade …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days but just like you I’m getting my Christmas preparations done (and working…lol). So today I wanted just to share some of my favorite cards from this season … Enjoy.

My Wrapped in Plaid (Perfectly Plaid Bundle) card below is my #1 Pinned card on Pinterest right now! Amazing … such a simple card. This tells me a lot about what stampers want … Pretty cards that are easy to recreate.

Below is a picture of the Mantle Gifts close up … A Gift Box filled with coordinating Gift Cards created from the Wrapped in Plaid Bundle. That Tree Punch has been a big hit this year!

I hope you enjoyed revisiting some of my favorites this past season … Looking forward to sharing a few more with you, and kicking off then new Spring/Summer catalog!! Hope you got yours, if not, let me know!

Thank you so much for joining me today … I have a little something special for you tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day.

Peaceful Boughs bundle …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful Christmas card to share with you today that came in the mailbox … via my sister Rita! I love when people send me cards made from stamp sets I don’t have. Rita used the Peaceful Boughs bundle …

The Peaceful Boughs Bundle includes the Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set and the Beautiful Boughs Dies.

Deck your projects with pretty pine cones and beautiful boughs. The images in the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set are so realistic you can almost smell the fresh pine in the air!

Rita paired the Peaceful Boughs Bundle with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper and the gold foil paper to create this stunning holiday look.

This bundle is perfect for our nature lovin’ stampers or looking for that masculine touch… a very versatile stamp set for sure. This card would also make a perfect birthday card!!

Hope you enjoyed Rita’s card as much as I did, and thanks for stopping by today.

Christmas Begins with Love

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a stunning card created with a technique I shared earlier and a bundle I have shared with you recently …. My Christmas Begins with Love card marries them both together.

Back in November I shared a card with you highlighting the “Stained Glass Glitter Window” technique …

and last week I introduced you to the Shine Bright bundle and another form of a “Stained Glass” look ….

Today, I’d like to combine the two and show you a stunning card! I love how this turned out …

The image and greeting are stamped directly onto the Window Sheet using the StazOn™ Ink and colored from the back with our Stampin’ Blends. I used the Dark Cherry Cobbler and Dark Old Olive Blends.

I colored a few layers to give it the deep rich color you see … laying it on top of the Sparkle Glimmer paper created that stunning stained glass glitter effect. I used Glue Dots to adhere the Window Sheet to the Glimmer paper.

I used the Holiday Rhinestones and the Basic Rhinestones to add even more shine to the card.  I place my rhinestones in the little circles on the image … and the a few under the greeting to highlight it and coordinate the color rhinestones from the top of the tree.

An easy card to make … but elegant to look at. I hope these cards inspired you to give the “stained glass” technique a try.

I’m so happy that you came over to my blog today … Thanks!

Have a great day.

Holiday Gift Tins …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Looking for a cute way to “gift” your crafting friends … try one of our Copper Tea Tins!  You can decorate these metal tins any way you’d like … I used designer paper and a coordinating ribbon to decorate my tin.

Once decorated you can fill it with all sorts of goodies.  I filled mine with designer paper cut  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ … I choose this size because with just a little trimming it’s the perfect card front.  I also added embellishments that coordinated with the paper.

There are so many items you could tuck into your tins … and they are cost effective as you get 4 tins for $15 / Perfect for friends, teachers gifts, a little something to the Sunday School teacher … anyone you just want to say thanks and show a little Christmas cheer too.

What would you tuck into your little Christmas Gift Tins? Hope this inspired you to create some fun gifting tins for your friends, family or co-workers … anyone!!

Thank you for joining me today, hope yours is a good one.

The Stars were Brightly Shining Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing another sample from the Shine Bright bundle and some great news! I wanted to show how the other dies in the bundle look …

These are great samples to illustrate this bundle … the stars are brightly shining card uses the die used several times on the cardstock to create a beautiful background with dimension and texture. I like that the used the coordinating stamp and added the stars to highlight the greeting.

The Peace on Earth card uses the tip of the Christmas tree as a light background behind the greeting. You can also see how the pine foliage die is used … it leaves impressions and little cuts to show the glimmer paper below.

Here are the two cards I have shared in the past two days! First the Christmas Tree die …

and then the Christmas Tree stamp …
