uu





Here are just a few pictures I took over the past couple weeks of our Christmas.  We spent time with family, and friends,  and spent a fun evening at the Magic Kingdom where we enjoyed rides, food and laughs.  Christmas Eve was spent at home having a lovely dinner and presents, and Christmas Day was spent with my husbands family.  I hope you had a very Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah.

HAPPY DECEMBER EVERYONE!!

I've been MIA since Thanksgiving because I've been so dare busy getting ready for Christmas.  Wow, did I really say that?  "Getting ready for Christmas".  Christmas isn't for three more weeks, but yet there is always so much to do.  Shopping, buying the Christmas tree, decorating, card making, baking, and more.  Today we got all our outside lights and decorations on the house, and tomorrow I plan to start unpacking the inside decorations.  Here are some fun signs of the season.

MORE HOLIDAY CARDS!!



Isn't rudolph cute?  He was created using the Large Oval punch, and the small circles are from the Owl Builder Punch.  Simple, easy peasy!!

I used the Bells & Boughs stamp set for the second card.  The designer paper is last years paper but still beautiful.  I also used the Champagne Glass Glitter around the edges to give this card a more elegant look.

SEASONS GREETINGS GIFT CARD


Consider this CASED!  The very talented Sandi MacIver created this fantastic gift card holder idea using the Welcome Christmas stamp set. I used the very popular Top Note Bigz Dies for this card holder and the new Holly Berry Bouquet designer series paper.

CHRISTMAS COLLAGE


I know I posted this card a year ago, but I love this stamp so much and just had to post this card again.  This is just one single rubber stamp, but has so many possibilities for card making.

MERRY CHRISTMAS


Consider is partially CASED!  From the fabulous Sandi Maciver.  I love how this card turned out.  I used Cherry Cobbler card stock and ink, Frostwood Lodge designer paper from the Holiday Mini, page 28.  The Merry Christmas stamp came from the new Hand-Penned Holidays stamp set.

SNOW MUCH FUN

 I think Snow Much Fun is the cutest holiday stamp set!!  It can be found on page 35 of the Stampin' Up! catalog.  For this card I used the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Snow Burst on page 33 of the Holiday Mini catalog for the background, Cherry Cobbler card stock, the new Quilted Satan Ribbon on page 30 of the new Mini. Enjoy!

GENTLY FALLING CARD


I love, love this stamp set.  This is a card I made at Linda Heller's monthly get together.  We used More Mustard for the base of the card, Soft Suede is the next layer embossed with the Houndstooth folder, and  a piece of the Soft Suede Grosgrain ribbon is attached to the card with an Antique Brad.  The leaves were  stamped using More Mustard, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.  The Woodgrain background was used too.

HALLOWEEN WEB


The new Simply Scored by Stampin' Up! is amazing!  I love it!  I made my first rosette with it yesterday and it came out perfect on my first try.  I decided to use the rosette on this halloween card and added the spider from the Batty for You stamp set. I also used the textured impression Spider Web on the Whisper White card stock.

CHRISTMAS SHADOW BOX



I made this Christmas configuration-shadow box using little odds and ends that I've probably have had for years in my stamping room and never had a need for until now. I love how it turned out, and I think I might try making one for Halloween.
