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

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.

Crate of Wine

2017_12_21IMG_2872

A case of wine is sure to help anyone get through the holidays.  I started off by texturing the Stampin Up Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to texture the base layer.  I then made a crate from the Wood Textures DSP #144177 using the Wood Crate #143730 Framelit Die.  I then stamped wine  bottles from the Stampin Up Half Full # 144996 stamp set , colored the bottles and hand cut them out and added them to the crate.

Christmas Dough

2017_12_20IMG_2915 I needed a $10 gift for my office gift exchange.  I don’t like swapping gift cards so I decided to give some extra dough by attaching a 10 dollar bill to a roll of cookie dough and added a tag.  It was a very popular gift that got stolen the maximum 3 times during the gift exchange.

Frosty

2017_12_20MG_2452 Today’s card is sure to bring a smile to your face.  It is a simple design using the Stampin Up Softly Falling #139672 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to texture the front of the card.  I used circle punches for the eyes and mouth and then free handed the carrot nose.  The scarf is just a piece of retired ribbon to complete this fun card,

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.
