Merry Medley

2017_02_25img_0389

It’s time again to post a monthly Christmas card.  This card features the now retired Merry Medley Stampin Up stamp set.  Cammie embossed the background image in copper and then added the pines and copper pine cone cut using the Pretty Pines #141851 Thinlits.

Gently Falling Snowman

2017_01_28img_1959It has been a very mild January in Central Ohio but I am sure the snow will fall soon.  So to be prepared, I created a fun snowman card.  I used the Softly Falling Textrued Impressions Embossing Folder to create the background. I pulled out my punches to create the sweet snowman to create a fun wintery card.

White Christmas

2017_01_25img_0376It is never too soon to start thinking and making Christmas cards which is why I always post a Christmas card on the 25th of each month.  So today’s Christmas card is a real beauty by Cammie.  She textured the background using the Watercolor Wash  #138704 Background stamp from Stampin Up. The trees from the now retired Wonderland stamp set were embossed in white. To create the snowbanks Cammie used the stem from the Sunshine Sayings #141591 stampset. The expression from the retired My Hero stamp set was embossed in silver.

Ornament and bird

2016_12_31img_0466-2

This is an absolutely adorable card  featuring the retired Stampin Up  stamp set called An Open Heart.  Cammie handcut out the bird and the ornament is pieced using a 2 1/2 inch circle punch and the birds reflection on the bulb.

A Happy Heart

For today’s card, I did a full CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) of the card from the Stampin Up brochure for the Stitched Framelits #145372.  The random background squares and the big oval sentiment piece were cut using the framelits.  I then used the Warmth and Cheer #141991 DSP paper stack and the Sweetheart punch to punch out the hearts. The sentiment is from the Suite Seasons #142209 Stampin Up stamp set.  Both the Suite Seasons stamp set and the Warmth and Cheer DSP paper stack are available on the Stampin Up End of Year Clearance sale. Be sure to check out the clearance items and place your order because the items will not be available after January 3rd.2016_12_30img_1980

Holly Berry Christmas

 

2016_12_29img_1984

Today’s card is truly a Holly Happiness card.  I started by using the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141634.  For the focal panel, used the Holly Berry Happiness #142061 Photopolymer stampset to create the wreath.  The sentiment is also from was the Holly Berry Happiness set added to a hand cut banner and I added a bow.
