Oh Holy Night Christmas Card

This is a card that I created for Stamp-A-Stack next Sunday. I used the Stampin' Up! set, Oh Holy Night, from the Holiday catalog.


This is a hybrid project. I liked this paper but it is only available through My Digital Studio. I bought the digital download and printed the paper that I needed. Love it! It is a thrifty way to get Stampin' Up! paper because the download it a great price. Usually Stampin' Up! paper comes in assorted packs and sometimes there's left overs. Not with My digital studio downloads. They will include the entire assortment, but you just print the pieces you need!

I used a Mojo Monday sketch for the layout of this card.

Have you checked out the Holday Sale? Stampin' Up! is going to have another 24 hour special on Cyber Monday...so stay tuned!

Festive Flurry Christmas card

We had a fun time at the Christmas card class yesterday. We used the new Stampin' Up! flip card die to create this Christmas card. The circle flips over when the card is opened and reveals the Christmas greeting on the other side of the circle.

Zoo Review Christmas Card

Zoo Review, Christmas Messages, Christmas card, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, bear
Happy Polar Bear Christmas! Here's one to make for your bear-loving friends. I used the Stampin' Up! set ZOO REVIEW, my Big Shot and Top Note die, the polka dot embossing folder, and Organza ribbon on this card.

The sentiment is from the holiday catalog set Christmas Messages. This set, along with More Merry Messages, are my two go-to Christmas sentiment sets for my Christmas cards.


Here's a link to a fun video that highlights a couple of fun techniques using the Polar bear from Stampin' Up! Zoo Review set.

Enjoy!

Mojo Monday Sketch Christmas Card

Stamp with Trude, Mojo Monday, Stampin' Up!, Christmas card
Have you discovered Mojo Monday Sketches yet? I love them. I don't have to take the time to design the layout, I just have to choose my paper, stamps and embellishments!

For this card I used products from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. I used the Season of Style designer series paper stack, the Pretty Present designer tags and the Very Merry Tags stamp set.

 I also used Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. I like it because it is so easy to use and makes such pretty cards. You can find these products at my online Stampin' Up! store.
