2 of next month’s Christmas Stamp-A-Stack Cards


I am loving all these Christmas Card Stamp a Stacks—I know you are too. 

This card was cased from my upline Connie’s Founder’s Circle Swap.  I changed it a bit so that I could make it my own.  I love this embossing folder from the Holiday Mini #124096 Snow Burst.  It has such depth!

The stamp sets are Pines and Poinsettias #123764

and Hand-Penned Holidays

I added the new Quilted Satin Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler  #124105 

A touch of ribbon and pearls completes this antique card. CS is Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler.

Snow Much Fun!


I got the idea for this card at convention. I’m sorry, I cannot remember the artist.

I stamped the snowman first then ran him through the Big Shot with the poinsettias embossing folder.  I cut out about 6 ovals from cardboard and then laid them all together.  Put the snowman image inside the embossing folder, lay the oval cutouts on top the folder but lining up so the snowman appears through the oval.  Put texture impressions pad on top of the cutting mat….no cutting plates.   There is a pocket in back of the image for a little book mark. 

I hope that you’re gearing up for the holidays and if you need to get started on your Christmas cards, this is a great month to start, not when it gets so busy you can’t see straight.

Favor boxes and Embellishments

I apologize that I have not been very helpful this week. We started school here at our house and it just adds a tad to the workload!  I’m glad that the children are very excited and they’re doing very well.  We are still in the middle of finishing up some late canning so I’m headed to my Mom’s today to do salsa but I wanted to take a minute to put some new things up here that I’m so excited about.
























Adorable Butterflies!   We whipped out 22 of these babies last Friday to make these napkin holders for our Tea Party on Saturday.  Not the napkins, I made them too just for an added touch.




This is what the pattern looks like by Deb Paisie.  Can you see the score lines?  They start across the center of the square from corner to corner then go up and down by 1/4” increments.  It works like magic on our new Simply Scored by Stampin’ Up!

I hope you have a wonderful day!  Take some time to stamp today
