SU Christmas Card

SU Winter Woods

September 22, 2018

I have a another Christmas card for you today.

I typically make a traditional red/green card, a purple card,
and this is the card I made for my “blue” Christmas card this year. I was smitten with this
bundle when I first saw it on the Stampin’ Up Alaska Cruise,
and I kept seeing cards with the simple trees and one lone die cut tree everywhere
so I was definitely inspired by so many people.

*I didn’t realize that awesome silver ribbon was retired…then I saw the gold ribbon on the Clearance Rack
and scarfed some up! Makes a great layer of detail without bulk for easy mailing:)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Dashing Deer Copper and Merlot Snowflakes

September 19, 2018

Hello, friends…those deer keep dashing across my craft desk.
Here is a fun one using the absolutely gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Paper
and the coordinating Glimmer Paper!

Take a look at all the beautiful patterns in the DSP accented with copper.

Oh, the Glimmer Paper is so wonderful to work with…thinner and no messy glitter adorning my desk and everything I touch!
And, the colors of copper, Merry Merlot, and Tranquil Tide are divine…rich and elegant!
It is a perfect compliment to the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP hence the name, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper…lol

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:)
