You spoke up and we listened. Last year I did not post Christmas cards on the 25th of every month and we heard lots of complaints; so we are bringing Christmas back every 25th throughout 2015. Today’s Christmas post uses the Stampin Up Be the Star #135734 stamp set and coordinating Star Framelits #133723 and I layered the stars in a random pattern to create a festive Christmas card.

Today’s card is something I normally don’t do because I feel a bit challenged by it and that is combining multiple stamp sets to make a card. For the background piece, I used the new Lucky Star #135817 textured impressions embossing folder from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. I then starting combing stamp sets for a fun masculine birthday card. For this card I used 3 stampsets: Be the Star #135734 and the coordinating Star Framelits #133725, Work of Art #134114 and Perfect Pennants #133230
Who knew how much I would love a stamp set? I never knew how much I would love to create with the Work of Art #134111 stampset that Stampin Up gave us at the catalog premiere party in April. I have used the heck out of this stamp set already and today’s post is my Christmas tree card that I made for one of the cards for my Christmas in July workshop. For the Christmas in July workshop, I decided that since there were not any Christmas stamps offered in the current Stampin Up annual catalog and the holiday catalog was not yet available I decided to have a “Use as other wise intended” workshop. All 5 of the cards I created for this class were non Christmas stamps that I used to create a Christmas card. It was great because it stretched my creativity and utilized stamp sets for other purposes.
For this card, I just used the Work of Art stampset and old olive ink to create the tree. The trunk was also created using the Work of Art set and soft suede ink. I decorated the tree with Gorgeous Grunge #130517 and Real Red ink. The star tree topper was stamped using the Be the Star #135734 and the coordinating Stars #133723 Framelits.
This was truly a fun creation and each tree turns out different which really adds to the fun at a workshop.
