Pumpkin Alternatives

2017_12_19 I used the  October My Paper Pumpkin Pining for Plaid kit to create 2 alternative designs.  Both cards use the card bases from the Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin kit and I added a strip of DSP from the Merry Little Christmas #144621 collection and added the printed card from the kit.  For the top card, I used my Stampin Up trimmer to create segments  and layered them with pop dots to create the telescoping effect.

Wine A lot

2017_12_18IMG_2873 I love the Half Full #144996 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I created the background by randomly stamping images from the Half Full set and added a piece of the Merry Music DSP #144623.  I added a Gold Snowflake to anchor the focal piece.

MerryMistletoe

2017_12_17IMG_0633 Nothing beats a black and white card with a pop of red.  Cammie started this card with a piece of Merry Music DSP #144623 from Stampin Up. She paired that with the Christmas Happiness #144868 stamp set and the gorgeous Foil Snowflakes #144642 and a bow tied from the sparkly Tinsel Trim #144636.  All the items on this card are currently in limited supply and on the Stampin Up End of Year Retirement List.

Pining for Christmas

2017_12_16IMG_2906 The Oct 2017 Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin Kit, Pining For Plaid came in handy this Christmas to help me get my Christmas cards done.  The shaker cards worked up quick and are sure to delight the recipient.  The My Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect for all levels of crafters.

Pretty packaging

2017_12_14IMG_0664 Cammie went all out with the packaging for her Dec workshop.  She purchased a glitzy mermaid stocking and added a sweet beachy tag using the Beachy Little Christmas #144854 stamp set from Stampin Up. The Beachy Little Christmas is one of the many favorites from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog that is on the Stampin Up Year End Retirement List.

For my holiday packaging I went a little simpler than Cammie did.  I purchased blue lunch sacks and ran it thru the Big Shot using the Winter Wishes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144686. 2017_12_14IMG_2675 I added tissue paper that I stamped using various snowflake stamps.  The Winter Wishes TIEF is also on the Stampin Up Year End Retirement List.  Be sure to check the list and order before it’s too late.

Christmas Happiness

2017_12_13IMG_0628 For today’s post Cammie drew her inspiration from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog to create this wreath using the Christmas Happiness #144868 stamp set. She stamped the image directly onto a piece of the Wood Textures DSP #144177 and she added a triple bow from the Mini Tinsel Trim.  For an even more festive look she added clusters of colored rhinestones for the berries.

It’s the gift that counts

2017_12_12IMG_0635 Nothing is greater than presentation and packaging and today’s post is no exception.  Oh, the excitement when you’re wrapping your presents—Christmas is the time to give, and adding handmade tags to your gifts make them even more special! Cammie started with a mini pizza box #144645 box and wrapped it with a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP #144621  and made a tag using Tags and Trimming #144829 stamp set. She decked the box out using a couple of Green Springs #144627 and Mini Ornaments #144626. She finished it off with a bow from the 7/8 ” Striped Ribbon. Most of these items are on the Stampin Up Year End Retirement List and some are even discounted.
