Shiny Foil Snowflake Holiday Cards

Hi folks!  Just a few updates here today!

I’m going through the wonderful cards that were shared with me at the OnStage event last month, and I the two I have for you today both use the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper – which are on the retiring Holiday list!

Just a note on that list – The Year End Sale is going on right now, and you can click on my online store links, or click here, to see which items are being retired, and which ones are available at a discount! These are as supplies last, so you’ll want to scoop these up asap!

Ok, back to the fun shiny cards!  This first one is from my upline Linda Bauwin, and she used the Smitten Mittens Bundle, along with the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. The mitten is cut from the Gold Glimmer paper.. so many pretty metallic colors!

This next one is from Mary Rodgers, also using the Foils Snowflakes, and Year of Cheer DSP. She also used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle, white doilies and some gold metallic thread, finishing it off with some rhinestones. How festive!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!  I still have some more to share, so I will do my best to get them out here for you!


On a slightly different topic – if you missed the info on the Stamparatus the first time around, the second pre-order window is open!
There are a few changes from the first window – everyone can pre-order only one. And… the window will stay open all month! It doesn’t matter if 10 people reserve it or 1 million, they will ship in the order they reservations were received (starting in March). This will also be the last window open since they are not limiting how many people can reserve!!
Head over to my online store, login with your account – then click on the Stamparatus picture where it says “Reserve Yours Now!”
If you have any questions – just let me know!!


One last item – If you have not checked out the calendar lately, there is one more Card Class this month before the holidays! YAY!!

Make sure to let me know if you are coming so I can have enough supplies ready.
These will not be Holiday Cards, they will be other/all occasions. As a bonus, you will be able to see some of the NEW products coming up for January.

Saturday, Dec 16th at 1:00 pm
10 cards with envelopes (5 designs x 2 each)
Please bring your own adhesive.
Cost is $25, and non-refundable.
RSVP by Thursday night, Dec 14th at 9 pm.

I can’t wait to hear from everyone!
Happy Stamping!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – Holiday Catalog

Welcome to this month’s “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all across the U.S. and Canada. Most of us haven’t met in person, but love Stampin’ Up and want to share with you! Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!  Each month we’ll have a different theme; this month it is the NEW Holiday Catalog!

There are so many wonderful things to pick from! I’ve chosen just a few items to use this time, but look for lots more to come during the duration of the catalog!

This card I made uses three brand new items:

www.stampinmak.com

– The stamp set “Watercolor Christmas” for the whimsical sentiment.
– Silver Foil Snowflakes – they come with silver and gold!
– Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper with little snowflakes.

Here’s a closeup of the shiny snowflake, and a bit of shimmer from some Wink of Stella that I splattered on the black cardstock.

There’s a strip of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper along the side, for even more sparkle. Some metallic thread behind the words, and a few rhinestones on the centers of the snowflakes finish off the card.  I love that it can be used for any holiday. It’s neutral colors make it a great option for almost anything.

You can get any of these items by stopping by my online store here. Don’t forget to use the current host code GXQ4WSYR if your order is under $150. If you have any questions – just let me know!

Snowflakes for Paper Players 324

Hi folks! Winter has (I think) officially arrived here in Ohio with some school closings! UGH! Not in my area, but not far from here…  so I thought it fitting to create this cute card for one of the Paper Player’s challenges: PP324 Snowflakes!

Here’s the inspiration pic:

How fun! Snowflakes! So, I immediately had a picture in mind…. So off to my snowflake stamps I went.. and then UGH! Many of my snowflake specific stamps are retired!! I wanted to keep it current for you folks, so a little digging I did.. and this is what I came up with:

www.stampinmak.com

Each snowflake came from a different set. 🙂 I think it turned out pretty cute, I like all the different flakes! And I love that it is in non-traditional colors.. I like using blues for snowflakes, because it can be used for *anything* during the winter, not necessarily Christmas!  Here I used Perfect Plum, Night of Navy and Marina Mist.  They are all stamped on the Shimmery White Cardstock, which is fantastic in real life… Here’s a closeup of the shimmer to get a better idea:

www.stampinmak.com

If you are wondering where all the snowflakes came from… here’s the list:
Perfect Plum – large – Tin of Tags
Night of Navy – medium – Stitched with Cheer
Marina Mist – small – Hang Your Stocking
‘Tis the Season sentiment – Oh, What Fun

How much fun is that? I love mixing and matching sets.. I do it all the time. 🙂
Don’t forget to check out the Year End Closeouts if you want any of these sets, as they won’t be around forever!

Last but not least, if you didn’t catch it on the calendar, this Sunday I’m having an informal Open House – Card Buffet Mashup. From 1-5, stop on by to use my non-consumable supplies (Big Shot, Stamps, Punches, etc) to finish your projects, OR pick some cards from my past classes to put together.
Don’t forget to bring your adhesive and RSVP by Saturday night!
I need to make sure I have enough work space setup for you!
Cost is only $5, and individual cards are $2 each if you want to make some additional to take home. I hope to see everyone there!

If there are any questions, let me know!
