Stampinup-fresh-cuts-christ The Fresh Cuts notes are perfect for featuring some patterned paper or a stamp technique.

Here, I've used it with the Ski Slope papers for a very quick Christmas card, done up for my Stamp A Stack last week. 

I like the clean, simplicity of this design.

The centre flower is from the Spotlight on Christmas set, which works perfectly with the Five Petal Flower Punch. 

The Fresh Cut Notes are great to have on hand to whip up a quick card.  Also perfect for using up leftover bits and pieces.  At at $20.95 for 15 card and envelopes, the price is right, too.  Order here.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Spotlight on Christmas, Occasional Greetings

Colours: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive

Other: Ski Slope DSP, vintage brads, Five Petal Flower Punch, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Fresh Cut Notes

Rivetgreatgiftidea Isn't this a fun idea!

This is a sweet gift given to me by team-member Michelle Cave.  It's a cute idea to doll up those lovely handmade soaps you can pick up at local craft fairs that smell so luscious.  (I bought soaps last year strictly on the premise that if I couldn't stuff myself with chocolate, at least I could bathe in it).10 24 09_0338_edited-1

And you can whip these up in no time for a little gift for birthdays or Christmas.  The Scallop Square Punch Michelle has used on the wee card is FREE with purchase this month!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Occasional Greetings

Colours: BAja Breeze, Not Quite Navy

Other: Urban Garden DSP, Baja Breeze ribbon, Hemp Twine, Medium Cello Bags, Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Square Punch

Rivetbudgetwise Here's a really great design by Jayne Mercer – a project I've enjoyed making this Christmas season.  This one goes together really quickly AND I've just used bits and pieces of leftovers, making this one quite budget-conscious as well.

The images are from the sooooo popular Tree Trimmings set (and at Stampinuptreetrimmings $28.95 for the set of stamps, it's no wonder!) and also the Ski Slope DSP.

I said quite a bit about this set in yesterday's post, so I think I'll just stop typing and head off to the gym. 

Okay, one last note: only 21 more days to order this set and the Ski Slope Papers!  🙂

Have a great day and talk with you tomorrow!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Tree Trimmings set of four $28.95, Occasional Greetings  set of twelve $71.95

Colours: Real Red, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip

Other: Skip Slope DSP, Certainly Celery 5/8 grograin ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Who doesn't need fast Christmas Cards this tme of year?!!

Stampin-up-christmas-card-i This card is clean and simple, but the colours and shapes keep it interesting.

How to:

1. Stamp the various ornaments from the Tree Trimmings Set in Old Olive, Real Red, and Baja Breeze.  Best to start with the middle ornament and work out.

2. Stamp the ornament hanger (string) in Chocolate Chip on top of each ornament.  You can eyeball this as I do or use the stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement.

3. Stamp the Merry Christmas  in Old Olive.  Tie and adhere the Real Red 5/8 ribbon.  Attach to the front of your Real Red card.  Glitter it up with Dazzling Diamonds.

Tree Trimmings is only available for  22 more days . . .  order here

Thanks for stopping in and have a great rest of your weekend!
