Christmastime is Here ~ part 2

welcome back to my corner of the world

Last week I shared the Christmastime is Here Suite and promised to share another card – once again I have focused on the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper – did I say last time that it had gold foil accents on one side? On today’s card I show one side of the paper with the foil accents and flip it over to show the pretty seasonal print on the other!

I just want to remind you though, that this suite is only available while supplies last so please don’t delay – order yours today! 🙂

Winter Woods Christmas

After a beautiful sunny weekend it has turned chilly here in North Texas – we just woke up to 31F this morning.  But we are in December so we cannot complain, Christmas is just around the corner and a little cold weather always makes it seem a bit more ‘Christmassy’ as does putting up the Christmas decorations.  My husband, Brian and I spent one of our sunny days putting the lights up on the outside of the house so that along with the colder weather is really making things Merry and Bright.

Which is the theme of my card today using the Winter Woods Stamp Set along with the coordinating die set In the Woods Framelit Dies, this was one of the projects we made at a recent get-together  with my Stampin’ Mum and Sisters.

Lovely as a Tree meets Dashing Deer

I cannot let this Christmas season go by without an appearance of the perennial favorite Lovely as a Tree Stamp set.  I have been associated with Stampin’ UP! since 2006 and this stamp set was available back then.  I heard a rumour that it was either designed or the brain child of Shelli Gardner’s sister, Vonna, both of whom co-founded the company back in 1988 ( we have spent the last year celebrating the 30 year anniversary) and that because of this it will never retire – who knows the truth of it but it is a lovely story 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I am grateful for health, family and friends, both those who I know personally and those I who I know virtually – thank you for following me and choosing me to shop for your Stampin’ UP! products.

Today I am sharing another card using the Shimmer Paint Resist Technique – this time using the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint with the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set…………….. enjoy!
