I have struggled with coming up with cards for my Christmas in July workshop this year and I can’t figure out why. Heck this time last year, I had all my Christmas cards designed and ready to go. Hopefully once the new Stampin Up holiday catalog comes out I will be re-inspired and finish up my 2017 cards. I have seen a sneak peek of the new catalog and it is fabulous especially the fall and Halloween products. The new catalog goes live on Sept 1 so stay tuned.
In the meantime, today’s card is a fun design that uses the Warmth and Cheer DSP from last year. I texture the right hand side using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I hid the seam using a piece of retired cherry cobbler satin ribbon. For the holly leaves, I got creative with the Vintage Leaves #138802 stamp set and the coordinating Leaflets Framelits dies #138283 from Stampin Up. I used a 1/2 inch circle punch and red glimmer paper to make the berries. For the sentiment, I added a simple greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 and hand cut into a banner.

Who doesn’t love a lighthouse? Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when the Stampin Up High Tide #143006 stampset is calling to you.Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when these stamps are calling to you. Cammie answered all the calls with this one. She brayered the background and then added the sand and lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set. The focal panel is mounted on marina mist cardstock textured with the Cable Knit Imperial Embossing Folders #1435337 to complete the nautical look.
I started today’s card out by texturing the main layer with the gorgeous Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537. I then pulled out a winter set that retired years ago called Winter Wishes to create the snow scene. I added a few snowflakes and bling along with the sentiment to create a nice winter card.

The only good thing about cold weather is big bulky sweaters. Recently people began celebrating ugly Christmas sweaters and I have become paranoid to wear my Christmas sweaters for fear that it would be viewed as ugly. Well in case you did not know today is ugly sweater day and I did my best to make an ordinary cable knit sweater ugly.
The sweaters features the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the sweater base. I used a crimper for the trim. To make it “ugly” I added a tree stamped with the Santa’s Sleigh #142057 photopolymer stamp set and cut with the coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits #140278. I then added a variety of sequins to “uglyfy” it.
Be sure and get in the spirit and wear your ugly sweater today and throughout the holiday season!
Today’s card is full of texture from the razzleberry background that was textured with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. She then the main panel that Cammie made using the direct to paper method and lots of color. She embossed the flourish from the now retired Everything Eleanor stampset in espresso powder. To complete the card she cut leaves from the retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits from espresso cardstock and gold foil to create this stunning card.
