    Merry Christmas – Playful Pets

    We have three adorable furbabies living with us: Stella and Sophie our sibling mini Golden-Doodles and Cali our Calico cat. The sisters get along great, but our kitty is a bit standoff-ish. Stampin’ Up! has a sweet suite in the annual catalog called Playful Pets. It includes the stamp set and dies used in the card, as well as matching ribbon and designer series paper. This little Christmas Card is for our Vet Center at Lakewood Ranch in Bradenton, FL. They are always so loving and kind to our babies that I just wanted to thank them specially this season.

    Gingerbread House Goodies

    The Little Treat Box dies are so useful for goodie gifts for the holidays! I die cut the boxes from Cinnamon Cider card stock and then stamped the little house front from the November Paper Pumpkin kit and adhered it to the front. I had a lot of candy stickers left over from the kit too, so I popped those on. Such a fun little giveaway! The Little Treat Box dies and matching stamp set are being retired by Stampin’ Up! as soon as supplies are gone. Why not head on over to my shop and check out all the items in the end-of-year clearance section! Many are at 50%…

    Tags, Tags, Tags for Christmas

    I had to pull our elf Chippy off the Christmas tree so he could enjoy a lollipop. He used to get into so much trouble, but now he just hangs around. These sweet little tags stamp all three greetings/tags at once and the die then cuts them all together. You’ll be able to make a bunch in a jiffy! I just punched a hole at either end of the tag and slid in the lollipops I found at TJMaxx.The set be found in the annual catalog, so it will be around for awhile. In fact, the stamp set also comes with three tags each for Halloween and Valentine’s Day. Don’t…

    Hark the Herald Card

    I just love this card so much, as do many other demonstrators that have shown it on their sites. It’s not my original, but some very talented demo came up with it and we all loved it. It uses the “For Unto Us” stamp set and the “Evergreen Forest” embossing folder as its main elements. A very simple card, yet so elegant.

    Wishes and Wonder – Reindeer #4

    I bet you were wondering what I did with the die cut of my favorite stag from the card in my last post. Have no fear, I used it on this card! I even used the same sheet of plaid paper from the ‘Tis the Season designer series pack. This time I used Cherry Cobbler card stock as the background. This card is cut a little differently from most as I wanted to leave room for the greeting to be seen — but still very simple. Thank you to Patty Bennet for the inspiration!

    Wishes and Wonder – Reindeer #3

    I hope you enjoy the Wishes and Wonder suite as much as I do! Here is another take on the magnificent stag die. I die cut the image on Whisper White card stock and adhered a piece of ‘Tis the Season designer paper behind it to use as a shadow. The whole thing is mounted on Shaded Spruce cardstock – quickly becoming one of my favorites this season. Added some bling and voila — a simple holiday card.
