Beauty of the Season

2014_12_28DSCI0766 - Copy Today’s post is a beautiful and serene card that I used for a seasonal sympathy card.  The stamped image and sentiment is from the Beauty of the Season #135779 stamp set from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. The background was brayered  and then a soft suede overlay complete with a heart peep hole was added to soften the look.

I am a believer that nothing beats a pretty sympathy card to help ease the pain of the loss of a loved one.  The power of receiving a hand made card is good for the soul.

…and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

2014_12_30IMG_6096 - Copy Christmas holiday is behind us but the Christmas cards keep posting.  This is another one of my 2014 cards using products in the Stampin Up holiday catalog, The non traditional Christmas color combination of curry and silver made me happy.  I textured the  background with the Filigree Frame embossing folder #135818 and then colored the Partridge and Pears #133857 image with the Stampin Up Blendabilites markers.

You better watch out

2014_12_24ChimneyDSCI0799 - Copy Happy Christmas Eve one and all.  Today’s post is a super cute one using all punches to create 2 cards: Santa going down the chimney and the other Santa coming up the chimney.

Cammie created the chimney / fireplace using the Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie also used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 stamp set to grunge up the mantle and the fireplace bricks. She created the background using the Good Greetings stamp set. Santa was created using a variety of Stampin Up punches.2014_12_24DSCI0805

Simply Santa-Buckeye Style

2014_12_22IMG_6101 - Copy Today’s post is a simple one using the Santa Stache #135035 stamp set from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  I randomly stamped the background using the snowflake stamp from the November 2014 My paper pumpkin kit. I then added 2 banners cut from the Banners Framelits #132173. I then added the hand cut out santa and the coordinating Mustache Framelit #133741 to complete my Ohio State Buckeye santa card.

2014_12_23IMG_6100 - CopyMy second and my favorite card this season was my Stache-ing through the snow card using just 2 mustaches and a Jumbo pearl colored with a Stampin Up Blendability marker.  For the background DSP I used a piece of the Under the Tree DSP #135825.
