A Framed Newsprint Noel

I can tell I’m ready to move on from Christmas cards.  I sat and stared at my Christmas-themed papers today, and couldn’t find any that I wanted to use. So I reached for an old favorite — First Edition (newsprint) and decided to pair it with the Lucky Limeade dsp stack (polka dots).  And now that I’m addicted to Pool Party once again, I reached for it too.

A Framed Newsprint Noel

I stamped the holly from Watercolor Winter and then embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder over it.  I even pulled out my little sewing machine for this one.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Versamark

Pointsettia Pocket

I got this Petite Pocket die recently, and decided it was time to try it out.  I inserted a Very Vanilla card stock piece in it with the sentiment stamped across the top, and plenty of room to write a little note.

We got the tree up and the lights put up outside yesterday.  I’d prefer to decorate the tree with a nice fire going in the fireplace, but I had to turn on the air conditioner instead.  It’s just hard to get in the Christmas spirit when it’s so warm outside.  But I’d better find a way to get in it quickly or it will be over before I know it.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Watercolor Winter, Come to Bethlehem
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals
Paper:  Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints dsp stack

Christmas Box

So did you get all your Christmas shopping done yesterday?  Ready to start gift wrapping?  If so, I have a box all ready to go for you today.  Unfortunately, this little box is empty, as I didn’t get any shopping done yesterday.  I’d rather do it online and avoid the crowds.  Plus, shopping on Black Friday requires organization — and I’m not that organized.

These cute little boxes are 25% off during Online Extravaganza.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.  Here’s a view of one of the sides of the box.  I just stamped directly on the box sides.

Have a great Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Pinecone CASE

I tend to get my inspiration from lots of sources — magazines, catalogs, clothing, etc…  But one of the main ways I find inspiration is from other stampers.  When I saw this card made by Dawn McVey, I knew I wanted to make a Stampin’ Up! version of her card.  And since I just got the Watercolor Winter set, I knew just what to do.

Well, it will be a busy Saturday here.  Lots of birthday activities going on in our house.  Fun times!  Enjoy your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
