Stampin' Up! Get Your Santa On - card in a box, with a "Sneak Peek" from the new catty!

Hi all, well here's a quick post on the fly, I'm running against the clock to get all my Christmas projects finished in a hurry. Yes, and like I chant to myself every year "I'm not going to leave it all to the last minute next year", well here I go again!

I made these cute "card in a boxes" using the current (but finishing soon) stamp sets "Get Your Santa On" and "Festival of Trees" stamp sets. Now there is a "sneak peek" of a new product coming out in the Ocassions Catalogue on January 6, which is a new punch called the "Bow Builder" punch that I used to embellish the front of these cards with, it's such a cute bow and just perfect for embellishing card fronts and little gift boxes!! I love the big bow bigshot die as well but I'm loving this smaller bow that punches so easily and quickly. There's sooo much new and exciting products coming out soon I now can't wait to get the Christmas silly season over with and start playing with all the new things coming our way!! Well the clock is ticking and I better keep on the move...........cheers Sue :)

Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath Christmas Cards

Hi there! Hope all are having a great weekend although I'm guessing alot of you are running at getting everything done possible in time for Christmas, and you would not be alone in that!

Here's a few ideas I created with the Stampin' Up Wondrous Wreath stamp set and love that it has the Framelits to match , so no fussy cutting!! I really hope this bundle "carries over" as it is not just good for just Christmas, it also is good for other occasions. The top card is kinda vintage in neutral tones, the second one in the Pool Party and Island Indigo blues was inspired by one i have seen on the internet quite some time ago, sorry don't know who to give the credit to there, but thanks for the inspiration! The bottom card was part of a Christmas order I did for a friend who requested a colourful combination of red, green and yellow and was happy with her order.

I have to admit I will be very excited to complete my Christmas creations so I can start to play with some of the new and very exciting products coming our way very soon in the new seasonal catty and Sale-a-Bration starting in early January! Will keep you posted about that one for sure............cheers Sue :)

Stampin' Up! Bright & Beautiful Matching Christmas Card and Bottle Tag

Hi all! Here are two projects we made recently in one of my crafty classes with the Bright and Beautiful stamp set which co-ordinates with the Stampin' Up! Star framelits. I have to admit the photos don't do them justice they look great in real life with the richness of the Blackberry Bliss colour and the gold and white, but I just couldn't capture it with my camera in not so good lighting. As you can see I attempted to add a quick bottle tag template which i thought was quite clear but I guess I'll have to work on that one....lol. You can just make out the measurements but if you can't it's basically cut cardstock 9 3/4" x 3 1/2", score at 3" and punch the corners with the corner rounder.

That's it for today, I have a heap of projects to create and complete before christmas, I've come to the conclusion that no matter how hard I try not to, I am a leave it to the last minute kinda person........enjoy the rest of your day...........Sue :)
