Today is a simple holiday card in a non traditional color scheme. I used the Stampin Up Swirly Bird #141749 stamp set to created the ornaments, I added a piece of silver cording and the sentiment from the Good Greetings (retired) stamp set on the piece punched with the retired Washi Tape punch. Easy Peasy!
It’s been a rough start to the new year and it is just a few hours old! Today’s late post still wishes you a happy new year! I love this card I made to bring in the new year. It just screams for a fancy celebration. The masquerade mask is made using the now retired Stampin Up mustache framelit and the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 for the eye holes. I used the new coming soon blushing bride and the dazzling diamonds Glimmer paper to cut the festive feathers using the now retired Four Feathers Framelits. I added a bow using the Silver metallic thread #138402. The happy is cut using the Hello You Thinlits die #137363. The new year sentiment is from retired Good Greetings stampset. I added some randon colored sequins from my stash add just enough bling for a festive new year.
Every July Cammie and I jointly host a Christmas in July workshop so that our customers can really get a jumpstart on their Christmas cards. So starting today and for the next 4 days we will feature Christmas cards that will be part of our Christmas in July workshop on the 26th of July. Consider this a sneak peek of Christmas.
The Christmas in July workshop is the toughest workshop for me because I am just not ready for Christmas when it is hot outside. I agonize also because Stampin Up has not introduced the full Christmas line up of new products so I challenge myself to use what ever I have on hand to make it Christmas. So for today’s card I used a traditional color scheme of cherry cobbler and garden green for my card. I textured the cherry cobble cardstock with the Stylish Striped Embossing folder #132174. I used the now retired Watercolor Winter stampset to randomly add pine branches on the focal panel. I then cut an ornament from silver glimmer specialty paper using the Stampin Up Balloon Framelits #137362 The second ornament was stamped using the Celebrate Today #137138 and the now retired Good Greetings stampsets. The ornaments were popped on the card and then a string was hand drawn. I am always happy to create a card using stuff I have on hand that is not for the intended use.
The Celebrate Today and the Balloon Framelits are a Bundle and Save 15% item from Stampin Up when the 2 items are purchased together using a single item #138869.

Happy Christmas Eve one and all. Today’s post is a super cute one using all punches to create 2 cards: Santa going down the chimney and the other Santa coming up the chimney.
Cammie created the chimney / fireplace using the Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883from the Stampin Up annual catalog. Cammie also used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 stamp set to grunge up the mantle and the fireplace bricks. She created the background using the Good Greetings stamp set. Santa was created using a variety of Stampin Up punches.
Today’s post is a clean, simple and almost stamp free card. I used a monochromatic color scheme and punched triangles in 3 shades of green using the Stampin Up triangle punch #133375 and then formed a tree from the triangles. The tree trunk was punched using the banner #133519 punch. Once I formed the tree, I ran it through the Tiny Triangles folder #133740 and then added a gold foil star and a hand cut banner with a sentiment.
Since today I am featuring a Triangle tree card, I decided to also share a cute tree that I made using the Stampin Up Oct Cute as Pie My Paper pumpkin kit. I did not use all the precut pieces from the kit to make the pie treat boxes so I created this cute treat box for a Christmas treat for my Advent Calendar gifts. I decorated the front of the box with a piece of DSP from the Under the Tree DSP #135835 in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog and then punched a peek a boo tree using the Tree Punch #135859. To finish the box, I added window sheet and filled it with candy then wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and tied it with a bow.
My #1 favorite thing in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog is the Under the Tree DSP #135835. This paper is so yummy because it is cardstock weight kraft sheets with color print on one side and white printed patterns on the other. I used the paper as star accents and cut them using the Star Framelits #133723. I paired the DSP with real red and garden green cardstock and embossed it with the Lucy Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #135817. The large star is anchor to the sentiment and the super cute snowflake Frosted Sequin #135835.

Today’s 2nd post is one of the adorable presents that I made for the Christmas Countdown Muffin Tin Advent calendar. This tree was made using the October 2014 Sweet as Pie My Paper Pumpkin kit. I stamped the flat box with random pine cones using the Christmas wishes #135107 stamp set from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. I added random stars with using a star punch and the Star Framelits #133723 and then folded up the tree. I added a battery operated tea light that I wrapped with Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape #133000 to the bottom of the tree. I accented the tree with a real red button and a Good Greetings sentiment. When turned on the light shines thought the stars and makes for a cute mantel piece.
I love pumpkins and todays card is a sweet and simple pumpkin created using the Extra Large Oval Punch #119859 and the Pansy Punch #130698 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. I added the stem using a knotted piece of the 3/8″ Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon #133670. The sweet little pumpkin is placed on a piece of Color Me Autumn DSP #135820 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. I added a hand cut banner with the sentiment from the Good Greetings stampset.
A Big shout out goes to my dear friend Amy who is celebrating her birthday today and someone who I am thankful to call a friend! Happy Birthday Amy!
