3rd Day of Parade of Holiday Cheer

The Ugly Sweater Addition! I so love the cable knit embossing folder. I see more creations using this folder during the upcoming winter months!

Here are 2 designs that my Mom and I whipped out for a card exchange with her stampin friends. Although the patterned paper is retired Stampin’ Up!, we had to go outside of Stampin’ Up! for bling!

Yes, those are mini, real ugly sweaters! Mom has the greatest props!

Rudolph and the reindeer gang card was created by Cheryl Wenker.

Last, this design is not so ugly and shares the versatility of our stamp sets. The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set has images of Rudolph, Santa, Gingi, Bear and this Eskimo. The same punch cuts all these images as well!

Eskimo was created by an unknown designer. Let me know if it was you so I can give you credit!

I hope you enjoyed my Parade of Holiday Cheer! Not sure if I will create any more posts before this weekend, so I’ll say Merry Christmas to you!

P.S. I do have an idea for one more post. It involves the story of why half of you will receive your Christmas cards next week. So if you have not already received your card from me, you are in that group! It’s a groaner for sure!

Parade of Holiday Cheer

Good Morning! It is bright and crisp here. Sun shining down on new fallen snow with outside temperatures in the negatives. Although it is pretty, it is not my kind of weather! Much prefer gentle warm breezes while sipping a refreshing kombucha. Looking forward to those days already!

Let’s stay in the moment and current season for now. I’ll share swaps received at #Onstage November 2016 in Madison in the next few posts. I’ll stack ’em deep in case you need holiday inspiration. Here goes!

My design…I learned that the cut designer series paper can’t be jumbled around in the storage container because then the patterns don’t match! I created a video to share how to cut the angle perfectly every time here.

The next two flew all the way from Maryland! Andrea Haines created both of these. The Tidings of Comfort and Joy card will be scrapbooked for sure! Andrea blogged about her journey with Gingi here.

Build It Framelits in Old Olive

In case you missed yesterday’s post, I was a display stamper at a recent Stampin’ Up! convention. I can share my Urban Underground Suite projects with you now. Enjoy the soothing old olive tones!

Stamp set is the new Urban District on page 47 of the spring Occasions catalog. I also used the Urban Underground Embellishments. The Build It framelit was used to create the ruler outline in the photo directly above. Let me know if you need help identifying the regular catalog products which you can order through my online store.

One more day of Urban Underground Suite ideas and then we return to Christmas holiday cards!

Build It Framelits in Real Red

I was chosen as a display stamper for Madison’s Onstage Stampin’ Up! convention in November! I was not allowed to share what I created to show at convention until after all demonstrators were allowed to preorder these products. So here is what I created using the Urban Underground Suite!

11-8-2016-5-rr-00111-8-2016-4-rr-00111-8-2016-3-rr-00111-8-2016-2-rr-00111-8-2016-1-rr-001

Build It Framelits are new as well as the coordinating stamp set Nailed It. Both are on page 48 of the spring Occasions catalog. See the fun hexagon embossing? Create the same deep etching using the hexagons dynamic textured impressions embossing folder on page 47 of the spring Occasions catalog. I just received my shipment of these catalogs along with the Sale-a-bration brochure! Let me know when you can stop by to pick up your copy!

Papers used on these projects are real red, delightful dijon and very vanilla cardstock. Serene Scenery is the designer series paper. Real red is the ink. Ribbon is delightful dijon mini striped measuring 5/8 inch wide. The gift card envelope and trims thinlits were used to create the unique tag shapes and the photo mat on the scrapbook page, the real red layer on the card, the flap layer on the star party favor and also the nailed it gift card holder. The only project I did not use this thinlit was the petite cafe bag!

It was fun to receive a bundle of supplies to create with and then share the projects with my stamping friends at convention. Check back tomorrow for another suite of projects.

Just a Note – A Study in Pink

This card is so fabulous that it is going to get a blog post all by itself! Kay Messling stamped this card and CASED it from PGPapercrafts. Let’s start to appreciate this card by noting the layers and lots of them!

pink pirouette cardstock is the base and flower along with ink splatters

sahara sand is the cardstock mat layer and was also used on the Timeless Texture stamps

whisper white cardstock is the perfect canvas for stamping

whisper white cardstock also used to cut the flower center and leaf

linen thread was artfully crossed under the white perfect accent

Kay said to gently run a bone folder along the linen thread to slightly curl it

Just a Note stamped in your favorite black ink pad

I am pretty sure I am going to CASE this CASE! Good reason to use the stamp set Timeless Textures. I may even keep the pink pirouette even though pink is my least favorite color. I think this card will look just as fabulous in sweet sugarplum. What color would you create it in?

Here are a few of the products used to create this card. Let me know if you need help finding any of these products or placing an order at my online store. Thanks!
