Snowflake Soiree #2

Happy Friday!  Here is my last Christmas card of the week.  This card uses the set "Snowflake Soiree" from the Stampin up Holiday Mini Catalog.    The small "Christmas" is from the set "More Merry Message" which you can find in the main catalog.  The colors in this card are Early Espresso, and Marina Mist.  The Designer Paper is from the same stack I used yesterday from the Holiday Mini called Festival Of Prints.  I have gotten a lot of use out of this great little stack of paper!

I hope you have a great weekend.

Penguin Pyramid

Good Morning!  So I think I must have been thinking about the upcoming football season yesterday when I was playing with my Christmas stamps.  Anyway I ended up with a very "cheery" Penguin Pyramid.

These cute little guys come from the set "No Peeking" in the Stampin Up Catalog.  I also used the set "Pennant Parade" for the sign, "More Merry Messages" for the Christmas in the middle, and the TO and the U are from the same "No Peeking" set.  To make the U use the Y on the Jolly Christmas stamp.  Just color in part of it!

The paper on this card is from the same pack I used yesterday out of the Holiday Mini, and the other colors are Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler.

Thanks for stopping by!

Snowflake Soiree

Hello Again!!  I am still working towards getting all my Christmas swaps done!  I tend to go for the more cute Christmas cards instead of the pretty ones so today I tried for pretty.  This is a new set called "Snowflake Soiree" that you can find in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog (p 5/ $21.95 in clear mount).  The Designer paper is also from the Holiday Mini on p 20.  You might have to look close but this paper comes in a 4 1/2" by 6 1/2 stack instead of the 12 by 12 that you are used to.  I love this paper because it is only $6.95 and you get lots of designs to use on your cards and projects. 

Ink Paper: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Island Indigo, Versa Mark (the snowflakes in the background)

I actually already have a card done to post tomorrow so be sure to stop back by!!!

No Peeking

Oh my gosh!  Count them up!  This is 3 days in a row of posting!  I am on a roll!  Here is Christmas card #3 for the swap I am doing.  This uses the set "No Peeking" (p23/ $17.95 clear mount) in the Stampin Up Catalog.  This is kind of an unusual color combo but I think it is kind of fun for this card.  The colors are Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Primrose Petal.  The tree designer paper is called "Snow Festival" and can be found on page 10 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Time to get back to work.  Will there be another card posted tomorrow?  I hope so!!!

Wondrous Wishes

Hello!  I am back!  I have been such a slacker with my stamps lately but I am doing a couple of Christmas Swaps with friends and need to get started!  Here is my Christmas card this year with a set called "Wondrous Wishes" from the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini catalog (p 21).  It also uses the new "Snow Flurry" Die cut also in the mini (p 14).    I am determined to get a good start on the rest of my swaps this week so check back and see how I am doing!
