Winter is Upon Us

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

The Sisters in Stamping blog is sharing cards made with a winter theme today. Winter is definitely upon us here in northeast Pennsylvania. I think we have dealt with more ice than actual snow so far this year and today is no different. I must admit, driving in the snow is less stressful than driving in the ice.

My snow friends here are certainly enjoying the blustery snow storm behind them. Look at those smiling faces. This card was super simple to create. If you have white cardstock and the Let it Snow Designer Series paper you are good to go. Seriously, that's all I used. Well, besides some adhesive and dimensionals. 

It's the perfect card is you don't have a lot of time. I cut the three snowman and tree from one piece of designer paper. They are all connected. Attached the strip to the snowy background designer paper using dimensionals and then attached that to a white cardstock base.

Be sure to visit the Sisters in Stamping blog for more winter-themed cards.

Time to Decorate the Tree

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some Christmas ornaments with you since it is time to decorate the tree. I love putting up my Christmas tree every year and all the memories of each ornament that I place on it. I have ornaments that my mom made or bought for me, which I absolutely treasure now that she is gone for 25 years. Then there are the memories of vacations or places we visited as a family. And lastly, there's the ornaments from many friends that we exchanged at an ornament exchange that I used to hold. I love the memories and I'm more than sure it takes me a lot longer to decorate than it should because of those memories.

I also have so many stamped ornaments both from friends and ones that I have made that fill the branches and make me so happy that I found Stampin' Up! almost 20 years ago. Being a demonstrator for just under 19 years has been so rewarding. 

Anyway, on to the ornament this week. I stamped the snowman onto a wood slice in black ink and then colored it in with Stampin' Blends and even finished it off by coloring it in white using a chalk marker. I love how this turned out and can't wait to see how much they are enjoyed by friends and family.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more cute ornament ideas.

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - All that Sparkles

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's time for another Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on all that sparkles and shines which is great for the holiday season. I must admit this is a super quick and simple card that has some shine and sparkle because I have been feeling a little under the weather the past twenty-four hours. However, it just shows that you can make a great card with minimal supplies and time.

I used thick white cardstock for the base and layered the designer series paper on top of that. Then I cut a piece of white cardstock to stamp the greeting and place the punched tree in the center of it. I then finished the tree off with some shimmery crystal effects to add some extra sparkle and shine.

Between the gold foil on the designer series paper and the sparkle on the tree it gives you a perfect Christmas card to send to all your loved ones. Don't forget to keep hopping to see more of the great sparkling projects.

I hope each of my stamping friends has a wonderful, blessed holiday season. Remember to take time to celebrate the Reason for the Season.

Quick and Simple Christmas Cards

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday to you and since it's Friday it's time for a great post with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are focusing on quick and simple Christmas cards. If you haven't already begun creating your cards, this post is going to put a smile on your face.

If you can believe it, these cards were super simple to make. There is literally only one stamp and one ink color used on these cards. No kidding, they are that simple. "So what is the rest made from," you ask. 

I used the Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series paper to make these cards. Even the snowman that is cut out from one of the sheets from the pack. They are rather adorable if you ask me, too. 

The fun thing is that you can make several cards and they are each a little different depending on which snowman you pick and where the other designer paper is cut.

So the only thing stamped on these cards is the simple little "Let it Snow" greeting. That's it. You can whip up a bunch of these cards in no time, I promise. Of course, I attached the snowman to the smaller rectangle using dimensionals. Although at this point, I don't think you would even question me on that one. You know I love them and use them on everything.

For even more great quick and simple Christmas cards, head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog.

Thank you for stopping by. Come back soon.

A Day of Gratitude

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Can you believe it's Friday again? Time is just flying by, but then again it always does this time of year. With the holidays fast approaching and travel soccer tournament season in full swing the days may seem long, but the weeks are certainly shorter than I need them to be. 

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing gratitude/thank you cards with you. The theme is obviously appropriate since Thanksgiving is next week, but we honestly should be thankful every day of the year and not just at this time, don't you think? I try to be, but I know I fall short sometimes.

For this card I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and the coordinating designer series paper, Magnolia Lane to great this simple but great looking card. I only used stamps, ink and paper on this one and it looks like a million bucks. Sometimes, you just don't need to have a ton of accessories to have your card look like it's "put together."

Don't forget today is the FINAL DAY for the Online Extravaganza. All details are below. 

You'll definitely want to hop on over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more great gratitude/thank you cards.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.
