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.

Christmas Case


Still celebrating Christmas in July with today’s post.  My card is a true CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) from pg 35 of the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  I used the Stampin Up Reason for the Season #139730 photopolymer stamp set for all images on the card.  The beautiful poinsettia was stamped using the two step stamp method and then hand cut and popped onto a whipser white label cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits #138281.

JOY to the world



I was supposed to post a Christmas card yesterday since it was the 25th of the month but that conflicted with Blair’s birthday so today is the day.  This card is one of Cammie’s Christmas beauties. She textured the background with the retired Stampin Up Boughs and Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the layered focal piece she started with a label cut from the Lots of Labels Framelits #138281 and then Stamped the image from the  Stampin Up An Open Heart #134999; she then added the cut  the letters out using retired set.  The poinsettia was stamped from the Reason For the Season #139730 stamp set.

Be sure to check out the Retired products on  the Stampin Up retirement list.  All products on the list will not be available beyond May 31st.

I heard it thru the Grapevine


Today’s post is a sweet gift box featuring the all new Square Pillow Box #139657 Framelit die from Stampin Up. I stamped the 2 box pieces using soft suede ink and the Lighthearted Leaves #139712 photopolymer stamp set before assembling the box. I purchased mini grapevine wreathes and added the sunflower using the Stampin Up Reason for the Season #139730 photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Festive Flower Punch #139682 and a button center.  I added a piece of Hello Honey 5/8″ striped ribbon #138417 to make it into an ornament. The sentiment is from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set and cut into a banner using the die from a retired Stampin Up framelit set ( I cannot recall the name). The wreath was anchored down using bakers twine.  The square box is perfect for a small gift or a gift card. I loved the grapevine wreath ornaments so much that I made the left over wreaths into more ornaments to give as random acts of kindness gifts.
