Faith, Hope, Love


The Year End Blowout sale is soon over, make sure not to miss out on some great deals!  One of my favorites in the holiday catalog is the Illuminated Christmas stamp set - I just love the sentiments!  For this card, I paired it with the Joyous Noel stamp set (the background leaves and splotch behind the sentiment) which is another one I really like. You won't want to miss out on stocking up on some galvanized metallic paper either!  I love that stuff :)


I used my Tin Tile folder on the galvanized metallic paper and my Stitched shapes framelits for the layered sentiment.  I chose to use Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana and Very Vanilla for my ink and card stock colors.


Supplies:
Illuminated Christmas, Peaceful Noel
Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray ink

Merry Christmas! I hope that you have a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends.

Blessed Christmas


One of my favorite Christmas stamp set and framelits combination ever is the Bethlehem Edgelits and Night in Bethlehem stamp set.  


I made quite a few of these card and used my stamparatus to line up the sentiment directly over the image.  If you die cut your shape and take the piece that the shape was cut from, place it on your stamparatus and then place the die cut back in the spot it was cut from it works great for placement. (Hope that made sense!)


I stamped some stars on Night of Navy card stock using metallic silver ink for my background and the city is die cut from Silver foil paper.

Supplies:
Night in Bethlehem
Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Metallic silver ink
Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy card stock
Silver foil sheets
Stitched seasons framelits
Bethlehem edgelits

Blended Thoughts


I love using the holiday paper collections for other occasions...on this card I used some Joyous Noel specialty paper in the background of a sympathy card.  The base of the card is Tranquil Tide  and blends into the designer paper of the same shades.


The wheat image comes from the Blended Seasons stamp set and the sentiment is from Wishing You Well.  The die cuts are made using the Deco label framelits and Stitched shapes framelits.


Supplies:
Wishing you well, Blended Seasons
Memento Black, Basic Gray, Crushed Curry ink

Celebrating


Today my middle child turns 15, although this isn't the card I made for him, it is one I debated about using.  His is baseball themed - all baseball all the time for that boy!  

As we get close to starting another Sale-a-bration season with Stampin' Up!, I thought I would use one of my favorites from last year's Sale-a-bration - Epic Celebrations.  The guitar image that is stamped on Wood Textures designer series paper is from that stamp set...


It is paired with Sheet Music (background stamp) and Gallery Grunge and I have added some Tropical escape designer series paper as well.  A stitched shapes framelit in Blackberry Bliss, some candy dots and a retired sentiment finish it off.


Supplies:
Gallery Grunge, Sheet Music, Epic Celebrations

December Stamp Club Projects


Time is still flying by and I have another set of stamp club projects to share with you!  


The layout this month uses the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper and sprig punch.  It leaves lots of room to customize for your occasion!


Instead of two cards this time, I opted to make a gift card holder as one of our projects using a little striped treat bag.  It is folded in two places and there is a piece of Whisper White card stock inside to write on as well.  The belly band around it is made with Joyous Noel specialty paper and I used the Snow is Glistening stamp set for the label.


On the last project, I again used the Snow is Glistening stamp set and paired it with the Tufted dynamic impressions folder and Stitched shapes framelits.  I just love the double sided ribbon as well - unfortunately is it no longer available like the Joyous Noel specialty paper...


The gold foil edged cards and envelopes were a perfect match to use with the gold foil embossed background!

Thoughts and Prayers


The Frosted Floral specialty paper has such pretty designs in it, I hate to even use it sometimes!  If you are also a fan of this paper, make sure to get some before it is gone as it will be retiring with the Holiday catalog.


Both my card  bases were stamped with some flower images from Number of Years as I thought the flower petals looked similar to those on the paper.  My sentiment is from the Wishing you well stamp set - another favorite!

Odds and Ends


These cards were made using a bunch of pieces in the scrap box - the sentiment layer I had already stamped and not used previously.  These pieces were from the retired Cupcakes and carousels embellishment kit.
