Stampin' Up! More Christmas Cards From Friends!

Hey there! Today I have more Christmas  cards from friends I want to share with you. Since tomorrow  is Christmas I won't be posting anything, but on the 26th I will be back to start sharing some sneak peeks from the January/June Spring Mini Catalog!

I have three cards to share today, starting with this one from Diane Laur. Diane used a retired Stampin' Up! Christmas set with white heat embossing and Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper (50% off right now on the Year-End Close-out List)

Next, LeeAnn Byrne CASED a card I shared here a couple of months ago to create her Christmas card. I am so honored! She made a few changes to make it her own, of course!

Finally, Donna Ninness created about 40 of these to send out to her besties. She used the Peaceful Nativity Bundle, another Year-End Closeout find. The Nativity Dies are a steal at 50% off the regular price!

Donna used her Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers to color the nativity images.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards From Friends!

Hey there! We are still hanging out at home, waiting for our quarantine time to pass. I still have plenty to do to get ready for our family Christmas next week, but I'm waiting to wrap until after I'm no longer contagious.

I've received some pretty cards in the mail from friends and customers, so I decided to share some of them today and tomorrow with you. Most of these today have been created with retired Stampin' Up! products, but it shows how timeless and lasting Stampin' Up! is!

First, my friend Becky Anderson created this pretty card with vellum and retired silver glimmer paper. She attached the vellum over the stamped snowflakes with strategically placed glue dots under the "peace" and the jewels.

IMG_1276 (2)

Norma Artman used Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper with the Christmas Gleaming Bundle (still available on the Year End Closeout List) The Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper and the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack are both discounted 50%!

IMG_1275 (2)

Tina Biby combined retired designer series paper with the retiring Ornamental Envelopes Bundle of stamps and dies for her pretty creation. The Envelopes Dies are currently 40% off!

IMG_1271 (2)

Finally for today, my friend Crystal Lopez enjoys playing with products from many different companies. She sent me this super awesome slim-line shaker card!

IMG_1278 (2)

Hard to believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Very different around here this year, but I'm still thankful we are doing as well as we are and that there is light at the end of our tunnel!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday December 22nd!

Hey there! I've been MIA for awhile now due to COVID. I, my husband, and son all tested positive last week, and while our symptoms have been considered mild, this virus is no picnic. Very tired and gastrointestinal upset has been my main symptoms. I had a much better nights' sleep and things feel better today, so I'm hoping I'm on the mend. Our family Christmas has been postponed to New Year's Day; I decided to not try to push myself too hard right away after getting out of quarantine on December 26.

I have a few more swaps to share with you that I think you will like! All of these are also gift card holders too!

First, Jenna Roby created a cube card with the Menagerie Mix-Up Bundle:

Stampin_up_menangerie_mix_up_carolpaynestamps1

The gift card can be added inside the top with glue dots.

Stampin_up_menangerie_mix_up_carolpaynestamps2

Kelly Acheson used the In the Pines Bundle with Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper for her gift card holder:

Stampin_up_in_the_pines_carolpaynestamps1

An easy little pocket created for the gift card.

Stampin_up_in_the_pines_carolpaynestamps2

Gail Connelly created a masterpiece gift card holder with the Snow Wonder stamp set:

Stampin_up_snow_wonder_carolpaynestamps1
She created the pocket with a punch.

Stampin_up_snow_wonder_carolpaynestamps2

Karen Kurz created her gift card holder with the Tree Angle stamp set and Stitched Triangle Dies:

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps1

I love how she created a "forest" to tuck the gift card behind!

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps2
Finally, Carol Slack used Warm & Toasty with In the Pines to create her "pop-up" gift card holder:

Stampin_up_warm_&_toasty_carolpaynestamps1

The polar bear is so cute!

Stampin_up_warm_&_toasty_carolpaynestamps2

Most of these projects were created with stamps, dies, and accessories that are retiring from the Holiday Catalog. You can find the complete list here:

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday December 14th!

Hey there! Another busy weekend. I try to stay ahead as much as I can, but always something comes along that gets me off-track. Family always comes first, so that's why I've been blogging my Sunday Swap Days on Monday so much lately.

Today I have a fun collection of gift card holders to share with you!

First, Emily Tull created her gift card holder with Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and the Moose Punch, which are both on the Year-End Closeout Retiring List!

Stampin_up_merry_moose_carolpaynestamps

Next,  Laura Barto used the retiring Festive Post with the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder and the Rectangle Postage Punch for her gift card holder. The Mossy Meadow 3/8" Diagonal Stripe Ribbon is 50% off on the Year-End Closeout Retiring List.

Stampin_up_festive_post_carolpaynestamps1

This gift card holder pulls out:

Stampin_up_festive_post_carolpaynestamps2

And then flips open!

Barb Dykhouse created her gift card holder with the Tag Buffet stamp set (retiring), Red Foil Sheets, Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders (retiring and 50% off), and Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Paper (retiring and 50% 0ff)

Stampin_up_tag_buffet_carolpaynestamps1

It's a simple gift card:

Stampin_up_tag_buffet_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, Rhonda Bassler used the retiring Gnome for the Holidays with retiring-and-20% off 'Tis the Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. She used Hippo & Friends dies from the Annual Catalog to cut the layers.

Stampin_up_gnome_for_the_holidays_carolpaynestamps1

It's easy to make a place for a gift card  by simply scoring, folding, and securing to make a pocket!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Nativity for the Year-End Closeout!

Hey there! The Giant Year-End Closeout is in full swing, and yesterday morning Stampin' Up! surprised us with a Clearance Rack Refresh too!

Today I want to share with you a collection of cards created with the Peaceful Nativity Bundle. This bundle is on the Retiring List,  which is also called the Year-End Closeout list:

First, I paired Peaceful Nativity with gold heat embossing and the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Get the details and supply list HERE.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Starlight Technique for this Peaceful Nativity card HERE.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_carolpaynestamps2

I shared this Peaceful Nativity card with a gold-embossed sentiment from For Unto Us HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833026bde90aeaa200c-450wi

I used a gate-fold to mimic stable doors for this Peaceful Nativity creation. Get the details and dimensions HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833026bde90f8be200c-450wi

I made the whole stable with this Peaceful Nativity Diorama HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833026bde911ec8200c-450wi

I paired Peaceful Nativity with Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper and Copper Foil for this card you will find the details for HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833026be4105d8f200d-450wi

I used the Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper again while creating this bridge-fold Peaceful Nativity you can view HERE.

6a00e54f70aa8088330263e9649ddc200b-450wi

Finally, I have a tutorial for the Starlight Technique on the Peaceful Nativity blog post HERE.
