Holiday Cards

I've been blog-hopping a lot lately.  You know what I mean... you sit in front of your computer, gazing at all types of creative, informative, funny etc, blogs... You jump from one and it links you to another, until you get completely lost and not quite sure what, where, or why you started to begin with.  I love it.  I don't get a chance to blog-hop often.  Life seems to be a distraction... One thing I have noticed tho, is how far behind I am in my own blogging... personal and professional... EEKS!  SO, I guess I need to to get busy, and show you some of my Christmas Card designs. 

So here we go...
This first set of 4 were for my Annual Christmas Card class that I held a few weeks ago.  Being, I think, fairly new to Stampin' Up!, this was my 2nd Christmas Card class.  I really look forward to doing it... and I have some amazing customers who do also...!  My "girls" really are the best!

My customers all set on their holiday cards... Me? Not so much.  So inbetween my kids holiday parties, and school concerts, I have done a few others... that weren't anywhere close to my Christmas Card Class...

I love ornaments... and adore the Ornament Punch. and the amazing stamps  that coordinate with it!

Don'tcha just love the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper.  I do!  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla... classic!

Ahhh, Cute Christmas. stamp set and Designer paper.  One of my customers, ordered the stamp set and asked if I could coordinate something into my Christmas Card Class.  I didn't have the stamp set, so she let me borrow it.  SO CUTE!

This one is my favorite.  Comtempo Christmas... and the Jolly Holiday paper... And of course I had to use my FAVORITE Embossing Folder  for my Big Shot - Square Lattice.  The catalog just doesn't do it justice in how amazing it turns out!!

This one was NOT in my Christmas Card class (just the first 4) I found an app for my ipod... (yes... there is an app for that) that showed me how to do an origami Christmas Tree.  Super easy, and SO fun... Kinda Bulky, so I might hand deliver this one, instead of mail.  I loved it.

So I know... 2 pics of the same card.  This one shows the truer colors of the Whisper White and the Marina Mist, but you just can't see the glitter...

So, this one... you see the glitter (OOO - Sparkly!) but the colors are off.  *SIGH*  I just can't win!!

With all the hustle and bustle of holidays, I hope you take time to enjoy the Season, enjoy your family, traditions. 

Merry Christmas!!


  1. I love all of your cards!!! They look great! As a matter of fact, the next time we Skype, you have to show me how you did that snowflake one. I've been playing around and trying to do that with my snowflakes and I am obviously not using the right stuff. None of them look that good! lol But I know I can relax because help will be on the way soon! ;-)
