Chalk Talk Christmas

2013_12_23IMG_3563This time of year I especially like to make things easy for myself and create cards using the same layout but switching the elements.  Today’s post is another example of me doing just that.  Both cards feature a tag cut using the Chalk Talk framelits #129983 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. The top card is done using the Winter Frost DSP paper pack #132183 and the Festive Flurry Stamp set 3131781  and coordinating framelits #132193  The center of the snowflake is a rhinestone adorned embellishment from the Frosted Finishes #132150 embellishments.  Can I say beautiful? I finished the card with a piece of the Silver 1/8 ” ribbon.  All these items are from the Stampin UpHoliday catalog that are only available through Jan 2, 2014.  If you love the snowflakes and have to have them, remember to bundle them and save 15% (wood #133284 and clear #133285)

The bottom card features the Season of Style DSP paper pack #132181 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog and the Tag It #130303 stamp set that coordinates with the Chalk Talk Framelits.  The Tag It stamp set is annual Ronald McDonald charity stampset.  For every set sold, Stampin Up donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, RMHC.  The RMHC help families who have children with serious illnesses and to date Stampin Up has donated over $1,000,000 to RMHC.  Together we can make a difference and what a better time than now to give.

Festive Flurries

2013_11_22IMG_3514Today you just might be seeing double. All products to make these cards was from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  I made the same card but switched out the paper I decided to keep it simple and use the Winter Frost DSP paper stack #132183. I used the silver metallic ink #132142 to stamp the Festive Flurry snowflakes #131781 and then used the coordinating Festive Flurry framelit to cut the perfect snowflake and added a basic rhinestone.  The snowflakes were added to a textured white and pool party using the stylish striped folder #132174.  The 1/8″ silver ribbon #132137 completes this stylish card.

The festive flurries stamp set has 4 different sized stamps that coordinate with a framelit making layering a breeze and endless possibilities to make sure no 2 snowflakes are alike. The festive flurries stamp set and framelits are available as a bundle (wood #133284, clear 133285) and save 15%.
