Quilted Christmas Tree

2017_12_30IMG_2931 This card was so much fun to make because I just cut out the triangles from a piece of the Quilted Christmas DSP #144617 and then placed them together to form a tree.  Once the tree was  made I ran it through the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144687 to create a beautiful quilted background.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Today’s post is a stepped up version posting.  Both cards use the same products except the one on the right I added the trendy Boxwood Wreath Embellishment #144176 to step the layout up a notch.  For the basic layout, I textured the card front with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #139672.  I then added the lamppost from the Christmas Lamppost #144675 Thinlits and the coordinating banner from the Brightly Lit #144807 stamp set.  I am so glad I bought the Christmas Lamppost and the Brightly Lit stamp set because it is now on the Stampin Up Year End Sale Event List and will no longer be available after January 2nd.

JOY to the world

2017_12_28IMG_2928 I love today’s Christmas post for many reasons: Simple Design, Christmas Around the World DSP #144629, Using an image for a letter, but mostly because I love the Large Letter Framelits #141712 from Stampin Up.  I held off buying them but oh so glad I did.  The wreath was stamped using the Painted Harvest #144783 stamp set.

Dickens Christmas

2017_12_27IMG_2923 This card is what I call my Dickens Christmas card.  It makes me think of Christmas in the Charles Dickens era!  I layered  the Merry Music DSP #144623 over the Merry Little Christmas DSP #144621 and then cut the lamp post from the Christmas Lamppost Thinlits #144675 and a banner from the coordinating Brightly Lit #144807 stamp set from Stampin Up.  All the products for this card are on the Stampin Up Year End Sales Event List. Be sure to check out the list and place your order because the items are good while supplies last or Jan 2nd, which ever comes first.

Frosty Cups

This was my favorite gift I made this season.  I finished using up my mini espresso cups by adding the stocking from the November 2107 My Paper Pumpkin kit,Back in Plaid.  The best part was the Wendy’s key tag for a Free Frosty for an entire year.   That is truly the gift that keeps on giving!!!

Treemendous Christmas

2017_12_24IMG_2914 Today’s Christmas card is a simple design using images from the Stampin Up Watercolor Christmas #144835 stampset to create the random trees for the background.  I colored them with Copic markers.  I added strips from the Merry Little Christmas #DSP collection and stamped the sentiment onto a Stitched Shapes circle #145372 with a sweet little red bow.

Beachy Christmas

2017_12_23IMG_0660 When Cammie moved to Galveston this past spring she knew her 2017 Christmas cards would be beachy.  This card is perfect for friends and family living in much colder climate.  As with most of Cammie’s cards they are beautiful landscapes that have been brayered.  Cammie used the Beachy Little Christmas #144854 stamp set from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog for all the beach elements on the card.  For the catchy sentiment, Cammie paired greetings from the So Many Shells #143695 stamp set and the retired Joy to the World stamp set from Stampin Up to complete this extraordinary beachy little Christmas card.

Swirly Snowflakes

2017_12_22IMG_2926

For today’s card, I paired the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits #144678 with the Quilted Christmas DSP #144617 from Stampin Up to create a country Christmas card.  The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments #144817 stamp set and was stamped onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 Framelits and a piece of Quilted Christmas ribbon to complete the homespun feel of this card.
