Christmas Big Reveal

2018_07_25 I finally took advantage of the Stampin Up Buy 3 get 1 Free DSP sale and the box arrived with the beautiful new Under the Mistletoe DSP #146921 from Stampin Up. The paper is festive, traditional, dynamic patterns for your holiday projects but I chose to mimic or CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card from page 103 of the Stampin Up 2018-2019 annual catalog.  I paired the paper with the Labels To Love # 144970 stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label Punch #144668.

Christmas Fun Fold

It would not be Christmas in July without at least one of Cammie’s Christmas cards using mostly DSP.  Cammie chose to do a fun fold card using the now retired Christmas Around the World DSP.  The sentiment is stamped from on the Snowflake Sentiments #144817 stamp set from Stampin Up onto the Tailored Tag #145667 punched piece on the handle. The handle lifts over and reveals the sentiment beneath.

Dreaming of a BW Christmas

2018_07_23IMG_3242 I love a black and white cards even at Christmas time.  Adding a pop of color (Old Olive) to this classic but retired Merry Little Christmas DSP from Stampin Up created a very fun Christmas card and using up old Christmas paper makes room for new Christmas  paper in the 2018-2019 Stampin Up Annual catalog and the soon to be released Holiday Catalog.  Speaking of the Stampin Up annual catalog be sure to check out the DSP Paper sale on going at Stampin Up.

Simple Joys of Christmas

2018_07_22IMG_3387 I hand make over 150 Christmas cards each season and make lots of different designs.  I try and make some simple ones because I make so many and today’s post is one of my simple designs using the now retired Foil Frenzy DSP from Stampin Up and wrapped the coordinating taffeta ribbon and tied a nice bow.  I added the foil snowflake and stamped the image from the Christmas Pines #142049 stamp set.  Once I complete the design I cut and prepare at least 3 more cards so that come Christmas time my cards are ready to address and get in the mail.

Christmas In July 2018

2018_07_21MG_1621 I am kicking off Christmas in July week by posting Christmas cards. For today’s card I went vintage Christmas by pulling out a piece of the now retired Season of Cheer DSP from Stampin Up.  I fussy cut out the poinsettias and tucked them beneath the label with the Christmas sentiment.

6 Months and counting

2018_06_25IMG_0738 It’s 6 months until Christmas and the 25 of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas post.   Cammie started off with a piece of DSP from the now retired Christmas Around the World collection from Stampin Up.  She created the main tranquil scenery panel of pine trees and snow capped mountains using the Waterfront#146386 stampset.

Christmas Bow Wreath

2018_05_26IMG_3158 Since yesterday was the 25th and my sisters birthday, I delayed the monthly Christmas post until today.  For this card, I wanted to use the Picture Perfect  Birthday #145519 stamp set from Stampin Up in an unintended way.  I decided to stamp the bows from the Picture Perfect Birthday in red and green to make a Christmas bow wreath (Yes I hand cut out each bow).  I added the sentiment to from the Christmas Pines #142049 stamp set and added a bow.  The DSP is from the now retired but on the Stampin Up Clearance Rack, Quilted Christmas DSP#144617.
