EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY

East, drink and be merry is a classic Christmas greeting and I loved using it for this happy card.

The Christmas Around the World Designer paper has so many happy images and I just couldn’t resist adding it to this card.  Ir’s also on the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special that’s on until October 31, 2017.

The layered labels with that inviting greeting can be removed to use on a parcel.  Adding the pretty pines die-cuts topped with the red ribbon top that pretty parcel label of just right!

TIP:  If you want to get different colours on your image as I did on the greeting, just use our Stampin’ Write Marker with the “direct to stamp” technique.  Voilá, you have a multi-coloured greeting.

Here is the list of everything I used for today’s card.

MAGICAL CHRISTMAS WITH STAMPIN’ UP!

I’m late today but still wanted to share this magical Christmas tree with you.  It was created using the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set that has so many great images to share.

I started with this great layout from the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge which is a great way to show off a couple of the beautiful designs in the Christmas Around the World Designer Series paper.  Then all I had to do was use that cute Christmas tree image(with a little colouring using Stampin’ Write Markers) and beautiful verse to complete the card.  Adding that bright and pretty ribbon finished things off nicely!

The designer series paper is still on for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale and you can see all of the choices Here.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping to you.

SIMPLE SNOWFLAKES

Today’s card highlights some simple snowflakes made with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  Snowflakes you say?  Well, they are coming, it’s just a matter of when.  Up here in northeastern BC we can expect our fall of snowflakes a little earlier than some, sigh!

So that is what prompted me to create this card and, since it’s Tuesday and we’re creating Christmas cards in class tonight, it just seemed right to show off this pretty card.

The Merry Little Labels Bundle makes it easy to create a simple card and adding those pretty silver and glimmery snowflakes topped it off nicely!  I attached them using our Multipurpose Liquid Glue which dries clear and is strong so you don’t have to worry about these little pretties falling off.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

ADD A LITTLE MUSIC TO YOUR DAY

Do you like to listen to music when you’re stamping?  I do and, it may sound early, but a little Christmas music while stamping doesn’t hurt either.  That’s what I was doing while creating this card.

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to create that lovely frame on the card front and then backed it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set added the happy greeting decorated with those tiny poinsettias.  The musical background piece is from the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series paper and it was cut to fit inside that pretty frame.  This is one of the cards we will be making at next Tuesday’s card class – want to join in?  Just Click on the Sign Up button and I’ll make a space for you.

AN EARLY CHRISTMAS SNEAK PEAK

Well, I started the week off with a look at Halloween so it just seems fitting to post this early Christmas card today!

Isn’t he a cutie?  This on guard soldier comes from the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set that’s in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue and I had fun colouring him with an assortment of our Stampin’ Write Markers.  This stamp set has several great images to play with and it’s available to you on September 1, 2017 when the Holiday catalogue goes live!

I love the matching Designer paper called Christmas Around the World and am sure that you will too.  That little soldier absolutely needed that gold foil snowflake backing him up too!

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Remember, the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set isn’t available until September 1st but you can get the Seasonal Bells stamp setI(I used it for the greeting) now from the Annual Catalogue.
