I loved the Wishes & Wonder bundle the moment I saw it in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! Once it came in my happy mail, it took a while to conjure an idea. I usually go to Pinterest and search the set I want to use. I saw a lot of wonderful and just stunning cards-but I wanted to make mine a little different! Then it hit me!! Door tags, buffalo plaid, and a majestic deer!
The color scheme then was simple! I wanted it to have a farmhouse Christmas vibe to it! The tag die that is included in the coordinating North Pole Wonders dies was perfect to resemble those cute door tags! It has just the right amount of texture to it and a fun trim edge! I then randomly stamped the mistletoe on the Smoky Slate card base and then adhered a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp.
There is a circle die that cuts out this adorable “Made in the North Pole” stamp! I added the deer cut out with Gold Foil and matching gold cord.
That was it! This is a card for my Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards in 2 weeks! You can purchase the items and make a ton in no time! Spend $50 or more and I will send you a thank you gift from me!
I am a Starbucks addict-and I mean to the point that I’m friends with my baristas on Facebook! So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the new Press On stamp set in the Holiday Catalog! To add to this adorable set, there is also the Heartwarming Hugs suite! This suite has mini coffee cups & carriers, sweet adornments, gorgeous DSP, 2 stamp sets, and coordinating dies! The Warm Wraps dies help you create a variety of coffee cup wraps! I have seen some cute cups and cards embellishments created with the Festive Felt Sheets that are in the Holiday Catalog! (Sorry, this is my favorite season and I get a little giddy seeing all bright shinny things!)
So to create this card, I used a layout in the Holiday catalog and changed up the paper, stamp set, and colors. It’s a great way to get out of a creator’s block! I used a Crumb Cake card base and then ran a 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Real Red through the Stamp-Cut-Emboss Machine with the Wrapped In Texture Embossing folders. The patterned paper is from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and is cut a to 3″ x 4 1/2″. I then cut a banner edge to create some visual interest.
I stamped the coffee cups on a 1 1/2″ x 4″ Whisper White piece with Memento Black and used my Blends to color in the cups. There is a Red Rhinestone in the center of the heart on the center cup. (Blends used: Real Red combo, Old Olive combo, and Crumb Cake combo) I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set on a scrap of Crumb Cake and used the Classic Label punch to create the shape. I loved the stitching from the ribbon that is from the Playful Pets Trim combo.

This card was made for my first Stamp a Stack and it was a favorite with my girls! It was a fun and simple card to create and make! The Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch are a must have this season! I have seen so many gorgeous cards, 3-d items, tags, and scrapbook pages using the duo!
For this card, I first stamp the Crumb Cake with the Birch background stamp (I did stamp off first to make it more subtle). Next, I stamped the fir tree with Shaded Spruce onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels. Then I tied a piece of the stunning Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ ribbon into a knot and adhered it below the tree.
I placed a piece of the Toile Tidings DSP onto the card base and then used Dimensionals to adhere the shape with the stamped tree on top of that. I added 2 Gold Foil sprigs that I cut from the Sprig Punch. The final touch was a Gold Metallic Pearl!
What is funny, is last year I looked at the Sprig punch and thought “I don’t need that”. I was sooooo wrong! I love that punch! I have seen cute wreaths made from several that are layered into a circle.
Stay tuned for a 24 hour sale tomorrow, Monday, October 21st!!!!
I almost didn’t buy the Candy Cane Season bundle-but I am so glad I did! The photopolymer images make stamping a snap! Plus, the bundle includes the Candy Cane Builder punch-so if you need to make multiple cards, it’s in the bag!
Imagine the cute tags you can create with the Candy Cane Season set! It also includes a “to & from” stamp! I also adore the snowflake cluster stamp! Look at the cute background you can create just like that!
Another benefit of this bundle is the Bow part of the Candy Cane Builder punch! No ribbon required! (unless you want to!) Of course Wink of Stella had to be added-so addicted!
Do you stamp your envelopes? Did you know that Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes are smooth like our Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stock? This mean your recipients can feel the excitement of your gesture before even opening the card!
Stay tuned! I sense a awesome sale coming for Black Friday! Check back for all the details!
Don’t you love it when you come up with a design and it just gels together!!? I have always adored vintage cards that use Sheet Music! Stampin’ Up! has answered that obsession by offering the Sheet Music Background stamp! Just think of all the music lovers in your life and the possibilities this one stamp could give you!
To make this card even better, I paired it with the tree from the Winter Woods stamp set! And, there is the In the Woods Framelit collection that helps you cut the tree out in a snap! (this card would be a great one to reproduce for your seasonal card this year) And for a bonus tip: paper save by using your Smoky Slate mat as your surface to stamp your greeting. Once you punch it out and adhere the sheet music piece on top, no one will know!
I used Wink of Stella clear on the white areas of the tree image for an extra sparkle. I used the Under the Mistletoe DSP for this card-but any 1″ piece from your Christmas stash will do! I liked the DSP because it coordinated so well with the Shaded Spruce card base. ( I LOVE THIS COLOR)

When I first saw the Beautiful Baubles Bundle in the Holiday Catalog, I liked it. It wasn’t until I saw what people were making with it that I fell in love with the possibilities it holds! (I have made at least 4 cards already!)
I made this one for my last Stamp a Stack. I feel that using a monochromatic scheme can make it easier for new stampers! But, truth be told, I HAD to use the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon! It really was my inspiration for using the Copper Embossing Powder for the ornament!
TIP: Stamp your ornament with VersaMark and heat emboss the copper powder before adding the ornament hanger. You run the risk of wiping off the ornament’s powder.

I just think of a nice fire with a cup of hot cocoa on a cold winters day with this card! I have fallen in LOVE with the NEW Buffalo Check Background stamp! I made this card for the Christmas Stamp a Stack last weekend and it was a hit!
I always buy the wood for the background stamps for their sturdiness. I usually prefer clear mount on all my other stamps. To make your image clear and complete; ink up the whole background stamp with Memento Black Ink (used here) with the rubber facing up. Take your cardstock and place it on top. Use the one side of your grid paper (scratch paper) and fold it over on top of the stamp and cardstock. Then take your hand and rub it over to insure the image is all on your cardstock. The best part is the ink is not on your hand!
The 5/8″ Striped Burlap Ribbon was the perfect choice to add some rustic texture to this card! The Red Basic Rhinestones are a nice final touch! Some people put their Red Rhinestones on the nose of the deer! (face palm, duh!)
