SU Alpine Adventure

September 17, 2018

Here is a nostalgic Christmas card using the Alpine Adventure Bundle.
I love the sled and snowshoes as the main focal points!

I used the traditional colored and patterned Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler work well with Very Vanilla as a neutral. But, wait, Mossy Meadow is now in the Neutral Family, huh?
I organize my inks and cardstock by families, and I am still getting used to that when I search for my Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy as well!


I love this bundle… there are the dies that cut the stamped images as well as little extras like the bow and holly leaves!

P.S. We have had a death in the immediate family as well as a marriage
(both requiring travel and planning)
so I haven’t got to do any videos these last few Mondays…they will be back!
Thanks for your patience and continued viewing:)

SU Spirited Snowmen

September 14, 2018

I have been trying to ink up my Buffalo Plaid Background Stamp and my Spirited Snowmen for over a month…
and finally did! Yea for me!

I love to make some of my Christmas Cards with untraditional colors.
I stamped the Buffalo Check with Highland Heather purple and used Stampin’ Blends to color the image- Light Highland Heather and Light Pool Party.

I made my snowflakes from the Beautiful Blizzard Thinlits die.
It is a large 4″ x 5″ die that can make a negative die cut panel

or many snowflakes at one time!

I did use Coastal Cabana Snowflakes though as I had some from a leftover project.

They matched well:)

SU Merry Christmas to All

September 10, 2018

I used the Merry Christmas to All Bundle on this card in a different way than the last post.
I used the stamp set and one of the sentiment die cuts- gotta love those two sentiment die cuts!

I jazzed it up with some gold embossing on the swish under the Christmas sentiment and on the Cherry Cobbler TO YOU.
After I stamped everything on the Very Vanilla panel, I ran it through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

The little sprig of holly was made with a die found in the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.

Isn’t the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper just wonderful!
I used one of the plaids but it has so many beautiful patterns in it:)

SU Merry Christmas to All with Foliage Frame Framelits

September 8, 2018

Happy Saturday to you all! Hope you have great plans for the day!
I sure do…after three days of classes, I get to spend one more full day stamping! WooHoo!
A Product Class using the Merry Christmas to All and the Dashing Deer Bundles this morning,
and an afternoon with my Downline group using new products from the Holiday Catalog-
how blessed am I? Wish all you you be with us!!!
Here is a one of the cards we are making…

Super clean and simple with the WOW of copper foil, vellum, and copper embossing.
I have been using the Foliage Frame Framelits like crazy on my cards- the leaves are so pretty!
The Joyous Noel Specialty DSP is just so over the top with its copper accents throughout!
I love the new Merry Merlot cardstock- it is really interesting how different each new color is
and how each one speaks for itself. I say to myself-
“Self, you have a similar color,” but then I get that new color and think,
“how did I live without this?”
LOL- did you get a chuckle out of that?
