A Few of My Favorite Things …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Christmas is almost here and our Holiday Catalog is full of wonderful stamp sets, however I cannot forget the Annual Catalog and the beautiful holiday stamp sets that are still available …

Here are a few of my favorite stamp sets in the Annual Catalog …

The most beautiful stamp set … greetings and dies that I could not pass up last year! So glad the “Star of Light” carried over into the annual catalog.

Another stamp set and die that I just had to add to my collection was “Santa’s Sleigh” … who doesn’t want this jolly ‘ol soul in upon their roof!

Another great stamp set is “Holly Berry Happiness” … I’m a big fan of Holly !and you’ll see it all over my home! It’s just Christmas to me, and the greetings and messages include in the set are perfect …

And if you are one who loves tradition then I’m sure you’ll love “Hang Your Stocking” as much as I do. These cute little stockings work well on tags and on cards … or both as you see below!

I have one more to share with you … “Father Christmas”. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Santa Claus. This set will work great with all the coloring techniques available … the new Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils are my top favorites!

Hope you enjoyed this flashback to the Annual Catalog! Our seasonal catalogs are awesome and I love to combine them with the great sets in our annual catalog as well.

Have a great start to your week ~

A Christmas Bridge Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As promised … I’m back to share the “Bridge Card” that my Stamp Club members made this month!

I picked 2 of my favorite bundles to create this amazing card, the Brightly Lit Christmas, Carols of Christmas and added the Detailed Gate as my bridge!

My color pallet consists of Whisper White, Soft Sky, Basis Black, Garden Green and a pop of Real Red.

We used the little spots stamp from Brightly Lit Christmas to create snow on our Soft Sky background. The trees are from the Cardfront Builder Thinlets Dies from the Carols of Christmas Bundle (same with the deer).

Since the gate is not wide enough to reach the ends of the card … We used the lamp posts to anchor the card and hid the seam of the gate.

I’m pretty proud of this card … and I love the look of the gate as my bridge. Simple to create and it folds down to slide right into your envelope!

Thanks for stopping back today, enjoy your Friday …

Have a great weekend!

Two for Tuesday: Star of Light / Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared my card from the Brightly Lit Christmas bundle, and said my greeting came from the Star of Light Stamp set … Today, I have 2 beautiful cards to share with you from our Holiday Stamping Retreat!

Both of these cards were created using the Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight thinlets, and were done by two of our retreat attendees!!

Our first card was created by our first guest stamper: Peggy…

I love the simplicity of this card, the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper really does create the “Star of Wonder”.

In addition to the stamp set and dies, Peggy used the Gently Falling Embossing Folder to add some texture to the card … it’s just so pretty.

My second guest stamper is Kathie …

Kathie’s card was created in what we call the “Z-Fold” card. This gives your card a real wow factor but it’s Kathie’s placement of her stamping and die cuts that bring out the real beauty of the card.

Kathie also used the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper.

Both of these cards are totally different and showcase the elegance and beauty of this Stamp Set: Star of Light. Don’t forget the Starlight Framelit Dies … Simply beautiful!!

I thank you for joining me today and hope these beautiful cards have inspired your holiday card making.

Have a bright, beautiful day ~

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!

 

I want to offer you a special on Cyber Monday as well … I will DOUBLE YOUR REWARDS … That’s right. I will double your rewards points with each $50 purchase (before shipping & handling)

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.
