2016 Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack

Happy Monday!

Today I have the cards from my November 2016 Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack. Yes, I know, I am a wee bit late posting. 

My Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack consisted of 12 cards, four each of three designs.


As I couldn't decide which version of the candy cane card I liked better, attendees made two of each color.


This one is a bright, fun, and festive card with the now-retired Candy Cane Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. The colors are Real Red and Emerald Green.

Here's a look at the inside and envelope:


I really like the font of the sentiments.


This card features the Greetings from Santa stamp set, also now retired from the Holiday Catalog. Clear Wink of Stella creates pretty shimmer on the trees.


Can't go wrong with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive for a traditional Christmas Card.


The inspiration for this card came from a sample in Stampin' Success (a magazine for Stampin' Up! demonstrators), though I changed it up a bit. I was leery of the Soft Suede/Crumb Cake combo, but I am happy to report this card was everyone's favorite! So glad the Santa's Sleigh stamp set is carrying over to the new Annual Catalog.


Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the coordinating envelope.


One of the tables, all set and ready for stampers!


I always have a little hand-made treat for my class attendees.

That's it for today. Perhaps my late Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack post will put you in the mood to get an early start on your Christmas cards this year!

Bridal Shower and Wedding Cards

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a bridal shower card and two wedding cards to share. My brother's best friend got married on Friday so I made a card for my brother and for myself to give. Of course, I also made a card for the bridal shower which was held in February. I used Shimmery White cardstock for all three cards.

Let's start off with the bridal shower card:


The dress is a die from Memory Box that my good friend Jean gifted me. Some tulle and pearls finish off the stylish wedding dress. The flowers were die-cut with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits (flowers) and Stylish Stems Framelits (leaves). When creating this card, I envisioned the bride throwing the bouquet over her shoulder.

A peek at the inside:


The congratulations sentiment is from the So in Love stamp set which I die-cut with the frame from the Rose Garden Thinlits. The sprigs are also from the same thinlit set.

My card was inspired by a card I saw while surfing the Web, but I don't know who to give credit to:


It was hard to get a half-way decent picture as I kept getting glare and reflection from the Silver Foil Sheet. The sentiment was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

Here is a look at the inside:


I kept it simple by just embossing the sentiment.

No stamping on the card I made for my brother Kevin to give:


Again, I used Silver Foil Sheet so it was hard to get a good picture. In case you can't tell, this is shaker card. In addition to sequins, I die-cut mini hearts from Silver Glimmer Paper.


The sentiments are stunning die-cut in glimmer paper.

Although the weather wasn't so nice, the wedding and reception were lovely.

That's all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies used:

Shimmery White CS, Basic Black Archival Ink, Bloomin' Heart and Rose Garden Thinlits, Stylish Stems Framelits, Basic Pearls, and So in Love Stamp Set

Shimmery White CS, Silver Foil Sheet, Versamark, Silver Embossing Powder, Bloomin' Heart Thinlits, Silver 1/8 Ribbon, Basic Pearls, and So in Love Stamp Set

Shimmery White CS, Silver Foil Sheet, Silver Glimmer Paper, Window Sheet, Metallics Sequin Assortment, and Mini Treat Bag and Sunshine Wishes Thinlits

December Thank You Cards - Cool Treats

Happy Tuesday!

Today's card is what my customers received as thank yous for placing an on-line order during the month of December.



I used the fun Cool Treats stamp set, which is the set we received in our convention bags at OnStage last November. Of course there are coordinating dies to make your ice cream cones and sundaes with a quick turn of your BigShot handle. Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach create the yummy-looking frappe and sprinkles.



I keep the inside simple with another tasty-looking cone and sentiment. Guess I forgot to take a picture of the coordinating envelope.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
