Carry On

All supplies are Stampin' Up! I saw this idea to use the Carry On sentiment with the Scentsational Season gingerbread man together on SCS, a very cute card made by Sarabeth46. Retired holiday paper, cardstocks of Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, and Real Red. Cherry taffeta ribbon and mini silver brads to embellish.

I have a new friend that sits right outside of the office window every day staring at me. This is the biggest rabbit I've ever seen, about the size of a very large house cat. He is usually in the shape of a big round bowling ball, working his jaws almost constantly. He looks just like a Tribble from Star Trek and makes me smile (until he starts eating all of my vegetables in the Spring).

Away in a Manger

All supplies are Stampin' Up! Soft Suede and Whisper White cardstocks, stamp sets Heaven and Nature (colored in markers) and In the Stars (embossed in gold). Wood grain embossing folder for manger. I used the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for the shape of the manger.

Scrap Saver

I was left with a perfect square with four circles after cutting out the ornaments shown in the post below so I couldn't let this piece go to waste.  Stampin' Up! Northern Frost paper with Festive Flurry stamp set in Coastal Cabana.

3D Ornaments

These 3D ornaments are a great way to use up your paper scraps. I used the Sizzix 3D ornament die but you could punch out your own circles and follow the triangle pattern so you can make them any size you would like. The first picture uses Basic Grey, the second a template, the third uses Stampin' Up! current Christmas paper.

Sparkle and Shine

This is for the Christmas Card Challenge #51 to use sparkle or bling somewhere on your holiday themed card. I love this retired flocked Christmas paper from Stampin' Up!  from a few years back, it's too pretty to cover up so I tried to keep the sentiment area small. I used the old Trim The Tree set for the greeting, Real Red and Whisper White cardstocks, Real Red satin ribbon and a Frosted Finishes embellishment.

Poinsettia card and Snoopy Tree

The card is for this week's Freshly Made Sketch 112. I used Stampin' Up! supplies of retired Christmas paper with Cherry Cobbler and Brushed Gold cardstocks, Joyful Christmas stamp set.

The second picture is my first decorated tree of the season. I have a huge collection of Peanuts ornaments, this little Hallmark tree is Snoopy and Woodstock miniatures. Makes me smile.

Santa's List

For the Mojo Monday sketch this week. I used Teresa Collins "Santa's List" paper, Stampin' Up! cardstock of Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray, retired ribbon, and Frosted Finishes embellishment.

Peachful Wishes

This is one of those cards that look much prettier up close, I sprayed the whole front with vanilla glimmer spray. I used a variety  of pine branch stamps, embossed in gold, clear, and stamped in Cantaloupe and Guava. CTMH Elegant Ornament embossed in silver tinsel. Stampin' Up! Greetings of the Season sentiment in gold. Cardstocks are Crisp Cantaloupe and Blush Blossom.

Santa's Belt

Santa's belt won't close so he may as well just laugh about it. This is for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge 111.
It's good to be back on my feet again and making cards. I was so sick all week with a flu, and in bed for 6 days. The upside is I lost 8 pounds, the puzzler is that I had a flu shot at the end of September. So glad it's all over with.
I kept my card simple and resisted the urge I always have to layer it all up :) Real Red base embossed with the snowflake folder, Whisper White scallop punch with Basic Black strip and mini brads for belt, silver glimmer paper "buckle" with ho ho ho sentiment from retired Holiday Sampler set. I would have to say this is one of my favorite SU Christmas sets, so many images and sentiments to choose from and all pretty timeless too. Never getting rid of this one. Ever.
All supplies used are Stampin' Up!

I have a box of unfinished cards from previous workshops, so I transformed this Halloween card into a love/Valentine card. All supplies are SU.

Advent Calendar

I love the way this turned out! I cased the sample shown in the Ben Franklin Crafts store where I purchased the cardboard box style Advent tree and the Teresa Collins designer paper. I'm not sure what I will fill all of the drawers with, I know money and candy will fit :) My son will love this!
