Magnetic Photo Frame

This is a magnetic photo frame I made to send out to a few family members for Christmas. Of course I have not gotten Christmas pictures taken yet so I had to pull this picture out from a few years ago just to show you what it will look like. This is a pretty fast and easy project to make.
Just cut a magnetic sheet the width of the Top Note die and then cut a piece of designer paper the same size. Remove the back of the magnetic sheet and stick on the DP. No glue needed! Send the whole thing through the Big Shot using the Top Note die. Embelish and stick it up on the fridge with your Christmas photo.

Soft Suede Christmas

This is my first card done with the background stamp Christmas Collage. Since it is such a big stamp it is really easy to use. On this card I cut three pieces of vanilla paper. I then stamped the image on each piece and trimmed two of the pieces down to "nestle" on top of the previous. Don't worry I didn't do any math I just eyeballed and went for it.

Stamps: Christmas Collage (Holiday Mini), Tags Til Christmas
Paper/Ink: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Punches: Ornament Punch
Ribbon: Trim Tinsel

Oh Christmas Tree...

Phew... finally got around to some stamping last night. I stayed up past my bed time, I am such a wimp, but it was nice to have the time.

This card is done with the Holiday Happiness set out of the Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog). It uses the new Jolly Holiday designer paper and the new In Color Pear Pizzazz.

It's kind of a crazy layout but I think it works. If you need any supplies to start your Christmas cards please visit my Stampin' Up! web site, www.amyklemo.stampinup.net

Ink/Paper: Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, "Jolly Holiday" DS Paper

Christmas Greetings

I am getting my post up early today because today is the kick off of college football! Hmmm...stamping and football??? I know it is a strange combo but I do love to watch college football. My team the University of Idaho is playing tonight and I will be on my couch cheering them on!
So speaking of different combos...this is the same card done in different color schemes. One is done in the traditional Christmas colors and the other a little bit different. I am all about red for Christmas but something is pulling me towards the blue and suede card.
Stamps: Welcome Christmas (Idea Book and Catalog), Grateful Greetings (Idea Book and Catalog)
Ink/Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Punches: Large Scallop, Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch

Christmas Bag

No stamping time again today :) I had to pull this out of last year's stash. This is a little box that holds a bag on the inside. I used the oval punch to punch a hole in the bag and tie it inside the box. These reindeer crack me up. The first time I saw this set I knew I had to have it!

Stamps: Holiday Line Up, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper/Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White
Punches: Large and Small Oval, Word Window, Scallop Edge, Snowflake
