Spread Christmas Cheer

2016_12_22img_1978

I started out cutting all the gingerbread houses from a sheet of the Stampin Up Candy  Cane Lane DSP (no longer available).  I added the cut out house to a pole and an altered bell stamped using the Seasonal Bells  #142104 stamp set and then punched using the Bell Punch #141846.  I added the bow stamped using the Holly Berry Happiness #142061 and the coordinating Holly Berry Builder Punch#141843. The bird is from the Beautiful Branches stamp set  (retired). The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Tin of Tags #142180.  Lots of different products went into this card but it still turned out clean and simple!

Santa’s Sleigh Parade

My friend Mindi went to town making Christmas cards for the first time this year using the Santa’s Sleigh # 142057 Photo polymer stamp set and the coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits #140278.  I think she did a great job.  Keep on Stampin!

Serene Christmas

2016_12_16img_0369

For today’s card, Cammie started off with a background piece from the Serene Scenery DSP paper  stack #141642 in the Stampin Up annual catalog. The tree was cut several times from the Beautiful Branches (now retired) Thinlits and then layered for added thickness. The sweet bird is from the Thoughtful Branches (now retired).  She added a banner cut from the Bunch of Banners #141488 Framelits and embossed a greeting to the banner.

Sweater Weather

The only good thing about cold weather is big bulky sweaters. Recently people began celebrating ugly Christmas sweaters and I have become paranoid to wear my Christmas sweaters for fear that it would be viewed as ugly.  Well in case you did not know today is ugly sweater day and I did my best to make an ordinary cable knit sweater ugly.

The sweaters features the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the sweater base.  I used a crimper for the trim.  To make it “ugly” I added a tree stamped with the Santa’s Sleigh #142057 photopolymer stamp set and cut with the coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits #140278.  I then added a variety of sequins to “uglyfy” it.

Be sure and get in the spirit and wear your ugly sweater today and throughout the holiday season!

Candy Cane Lane in a jar

2016_12_14img_1971

Today’s Christmas card has to be one of my favorites of the year.  I love all things in a jar and decided to cut out the cookies from this years DSP in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog called Candy Cane Lane #141981. I added the cut out cookies to a  jar from the Jar of Cheer #142161 complete with a bow.  The jar and bow are cut out using the coordinating Everyday Jars #141490. One the jar was completed, I added it to layers of coordinating Candy Cane Lane DSP.
