Lovely As A Tree – Classic Christmas

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Every year I pull out my Lovely As A Tree and make some version of this technique.  So effective, lovely and easy!

This year I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry:

I paired up Lovely as a Tree with Merriest Wishes, which has a cool dotted set which I used here for the “snow”.

Add a little glitter and it looks amazing!

Blooms & Wishes Rip & Flip Technique

When I was on the Grand Vacation in Hawaii last year, my friend Marelle Taylor showed us a fun, easy way to get 72 card fronts out of a single pack of 12×12 papers.  She calls this technique the Rip & Flip:

stampin up blooms wishes bliss rip & FlipThe concept here is to cut the 12×12 into 4×6 pieces, tear off the bottom third, and flip the paper over to create a card front.

stampin up blooms and wishes and bliss rip and flipI chose to use the Bliss & Blooms Designer Series Paper because (1) it has two colour ways in the pack and (2) each piece of the printed paper has a printed side and a more solid side, making it pretty perfect for this technique.

Floral Phrases has certainly been one of my favorites from the new catalogue, and the Night of Navy & Sweet Sugarplum combination really appeals!

Today’s share is what I made for my team swap last weekend, and is inspired by a sample on the Mediterranean Cruise and made with the Floral Phrases Bundle:

I loved this card concept idea when I saw it in a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator magazine recently – done in different papers, but a versatile idea!

I think the thick, lovely Blushing Bride ribbon makes the project!

I wanted to do something a little extra for my Virtual Club members and online orders this month, so all of them are getting one of these varieties of cute cards to both enjoy and use as a sample:

This one uses the Farmer’s Market Designer Series Paper, one of my personal favorites.

Each of the “strips” is made using the Washi Tape Punch, another goodie on the discontinuing list.

If you’ve been to any of my classes, you’ll know that Gorgeous Grunge is a Top 3 favorite!  Today’s share is inspired by Tami White and features our beloved Gorgeous Grunge, but this time in rainbow:
