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.

Picture Perfect Christmas

2018_04_25IMG_3151 In order for me to keep up with sending hand made Christmas cards to all my family and friends, I make an appoint to come up with at least one design per month and I make at least 8 of each design.  Today’s Christmas post (because it is the 25 th of the month) features the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set from the Occasions catalog in traditional Christmas colors.  The bows on the base piece were stamped using the new Stamparatus tool that will be available for purchase in the new 2019-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog.  The bow in the middle row was stamped and then hand cut out.

Hearts Come Home

Today because it is the 25th of the month, I am taking a break from posting my month of all things birthday to post a gorgeous Christmas card that Cammie made featuring the Hometown Greetings Edgelits #144671 from Stampin Up.  Cammie created a festive village fun old card.  The sentiment is from the coordinating Hearts Come Home stamp set #145416. What a beautiful card to receive during the Christmas card season.

Musical Season

2018_02_25IMG_0666 I thought this card posted but it somehow got hung up duirng my flu crisis so I am posting it late. It’s already past the 25th of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas card post.  Today’s card is one that Cammie made using all retired products from the 2017 Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  She started with a Tranquil Tide card base and added a piece of the Merry Music DSP.  For the sentiment panel, Cammie featured the Musical Season stamp set and then cut the French horn using the Musical Instruments Framelits.

Life is Beachy

2018_01_28IMG_0663  Just trying to think warm thoughts living vicariously through Cammie’s beautiful beach scene cards using the So Many Shells #143695.  This card is perfect for Cammie’s first winter in Galveston where snow is unheard of!  The sentiment is from the now retired Stampin Up Beachy Little Christmas stamp set.
