Simply Sunday: Reflections of Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you enjoying the Holiday Catalog and all the goodies inside? It’s a fabulous catalog … isn’t it! However, I want to remind you of the beautiful stamp sets that we have in our Annual Catalog … so, today I’m going to share some great cards that were created with the stamp sets you will find in it …

One of my favorites is the Merry Christmas to all (and the coordinating dies) This is perfect if you need to make quick -n- easy cards, and don’t feel bad about that because we are all busy … just pair it with one of our beautiful designer papers.

One this card I simply used the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes … embossed a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and used the die cuts to create an impressive greeting!

My next card highlights the stamp set … just add designer paper!!

Another one of my favorites that you will find in the Annual catalog will not only satisfy your holiday card making needs, but will extend throughout the year … WINTER WOODS STAMP SET:

This beautiful card was created by one of my friends and downline members; Kathy Czerwinski.  This card is simply stamped multiple times … the lighter trees were “stamped off” first before stamping onto her cardfront.

Let’s take that same stamp set and use it for the perfect birthday card …

I used that same stamping technique that Kathy did by stamping off … add some designer paper and you have the perfect quick -n- easy cards.

I have one more from the Winter Woods stamp set …

I love the simplicity of this card … this is another that would work perfectly for a birthday or thinking of you card. Replace the red glimmer paper behind the stamped tree and use your (or their) favorite color.  I embossed the background with the Woodland Embossing Folder … this adds texture to the card.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at what you could create with these amazing stamp sets. I love the Holiday Catalog but our Annual Catalog is one of the best tools you can get your hands on … so many great samples, fun and informative tips and a whole bunch of cools stuff to satisfy our creative habit!

Thanks for hanging out with me on this Sunday,

I hope you have a beautiful day.

Christmas Solutions: All Is Bright!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and celebrated it the way you like!! We each have our own traditions which we cherish and that is OK!!

Today I have two Christmas cards to share with you. They were created with the All is Bright product suite for my Holiday Stamping Retreat. Both cards also highlight the beautiful “All is Bright” Designer Series paper. Our Designer paper is on Sale through Midnight tonight …

Tomorrow the stamp sets and kits will go on Sale with a 10% savings.  Let’s get to our first card …

Are you wanting to make Hand Stamped Christmas Cards this year but feel a bit overwhelmed?  This sweet -n- simple card was created with the “All is Bright” designer paper and the “Merry Christmas to All” stamp set.  This stamp set also has a coordinating die.  We jazzed it up just a bit with a bow and the new Sprig punch from the Holiday catalog… it looks good without it, or how about a shimmery heart – that would be perfect!!

When you need to make quick -n- simple cards …. beautiful designer paper and a good greetings stamp set is the way to go and the “All is Bright” designer paper and “Merry Christmas to All” stamp set is the answer.

What is amazing about the “All is Bright” designer paper is the beauty on one side and the fun on the other! On my next card I am still using the “All is Bright” designer paper … both patterns used come from just flipping the gorgeous paper over.

What reminds you of Christmas? When I was little we had a tree with these Old Fashioned light bulbs so naturally I was drawn to this pattern. Are you lovin’ the bulbs too?

I used the stars as my backdrop and then added the Christmas lights for a fun and festive element to the card, and they really pull the eye to the card (which just means they are so stinkin’ cute!).

And if you’re loving these little Christmas bulbs then the “Making Christmas Bright” is on your shopping list, or you have it already.  Where you drawn to the combination of Stars and Bulbs like I was?? Oh my gosh, I thought this was such a fun and unique stamp set … one we haven’t seen yet.   Here’s another (I shared earlier) …

and the cute little door tags from my Holiday Retreat could easily be turned into a card … just put a greeting where I have my guests name!

Such a fun, fun stamp set and coordinating designer paper.  The designer papers are on sale today, stamp sets tomorrow … so choose your larger savings. If you need help or have questions let me know.

Thank you for spending part of your Saturday with me. I hope you enjoyed the card shares.  I will be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday.

Have a wonderful day ~



Holidays Edged in Gold …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and my Simply Sunday post … You will notice that todays card has the same basic layout as yesterdays card but by stepping it up by adding an additional product, it will change the entire look of the card. WOW!!

So in they style of keepin’ it simple, I am still using the Gold Foil-Edged cards, envelopes, and the Merry Christmas to All Bundle with the Gold Foil Sheets, BUT instead of the Vanilla cardstock … I’m using Cherry Cobbler cut to the 5″ x 3-3/4″ card front …

WOW …  is what the stunning Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Designer paper does to your card when you add it to your card. You know, this would be pretty over the Vanilla paper too! Want to know something else amazing about this designer paper? It’s Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other … how cool is that!?

This delicately detailed laser-cut sheets can easily be cut apart and used as accents on card fronts. So pretty and so much fun, I know you’ll think of amazing cards with this paper… just switch out colors and switch out your greetings and you’ll be set for any occasion … oh, weddings would be pretty too!

I did put a banner on this card to highlight my greeting so it would “pop”.  I used glue dots to attach it but I had to roll them so they would be skinny … that helped hide them and lifted the greeting up to create some dimension.  Simple can be stunning!

I thank you for stopping back and I hope your have a wonderful week.

My Saturday Stamparatus Class is SOLD OUT but I have room left in the Thursday Night Class.  Payment will have to get to me by this Wednesday so I can purchase your Stamparatus for class.

There is still one week remaining in our Dashing Along Promotion …
