Reason for the Season

2017_04_25IMG_1265 For today’s Christmas post (It’s the 25th after all) I decided to use products that I have on hand that are on the Stampin Up Retirement List. I used a non traditional color scheme and the beautiful poinsettia from the Reason For the Season #139730 Stampin Up stamp set.  For the sentiment, I paired the  Holly Jolly Greetings #139879 stamp set with the coordinating Christmas Greetings Thinlits #139659 to create an elegant Christmas card. All these products and many more are on the Stampin Up Retirement List and some items on the list are discounted.  The items on the Retirement List go fast and when they are gone they are gone or will be discontinued by May 31st.

Peaceful Season

2017_03_25IMG_0504 (1)-c Taking a day break from the birthday posts because it is the 25th of the month and time for a Christmas card.  This card is a gorgeous white on white card with red mat that makes it pop!  The main panel was textured using the Softly Falling #139672 Texturing Embossing Folder. The tree is from the now retired Halloween Scenes Edgelits from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from  Star of Light #142110 stamp set and is a carry over item from the Holiday Catalog.  Cammie did some light sponging to bring the card to life.

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.
