Merry Christmas, Good-Bye & Hello

Banners for Christmas

Hello Friends,

In today's post, we'll talk about 3 things-Merry Christmas, Good-Bye & Hello.

First, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas.  As I mentioned in early posts, I will not be blogging December 21-28, 2016.  I'm taking time off to spend time with family and friends.

Stampin' Up! Retiring Stamp Sets including the fabulous Banners for Christmas and Christmas Magic Stamp Sets used on today's card are guaranteed available until December 21, after which they will be only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  All Retiring Product will be discontinued after January 3, 2017.

And finally, there's 2 Sneak Peeks from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog included with today's Christmas Card.  Can you find them?


Banners for Christmas

Christmas Card Details

The Candy Cane and the sweet Christmas and New Years Banners are stamps from the Banner for Christmas Stamp set.  I stamped the candy cane with Real Red Ink.  Then, I stamped the banners with VersaMark Ink and Heat Embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder.

Have you found the 2 Sneak Peeks yet?  I'm jumping up and down giddy to announce that we will be getting a new Dynamic Embossing folder.  If you loved the Dynamic Cable Knit Embossing Folder, you are going to love the Dynamic Hexagons Embossing Folder.  I sponged over the embossed area with a bit of Bermuda Bay Ink.

The second Sneak Peek is the classy red & white Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  See it peeking around the edges?  There are 48 beautiful 6" x 6" of Red & White Paper.

Christmas Magic

I carried the Red and White theme through to the inside of my card, but this time in reverse.  I heat embossed white on red with stamps from the Christmas Magic Stamp set. 

I really do appreciate you.  See you again on December 29.

Christmas Magic Holiday Sneak Peek

Christmas Magic

Hello Stampers,

One of the many things that I love about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is Sneak Peeks and Preorders.  Today's projects were made with the Christmas Magic Stamp Set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  How many other Sneak Peeks can you find?

Christmas Magic Train

The stamps in the Christmas Magic stamp set are a little vintage and a little whimsical.  Who doesn't like the charm of a steam engine decked out for Christmas?  

There are 4 more Holiday Sneak Peeks of my Christmas Card.  Did you find them?

Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine-The picture doesn't do this twine justice.  The red and white stripes hold a touch of glimmer.  It's beautiful!

Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape-Love the classic look of red and white.  And the patterns of the 5 Candy Cane Washi Tape will take you to Christmas and beyond.

Sneak Peeks 3 and 4 are Copper Foil Sheets and Embossing Powder.  Copper is so trendy right now.  These are a must have for your craft room.

Coloring with Markers

The Steam Engine from the Christmas Magic is just so cool.  I enjoyed every minute coloring this beauty.  For a more saturated watercolor look, I like the apply ink to a clear block with my markers.  Then, I begin coloring with my Blender Pen.  Its fine tip is great for coloring tight spaces.  Hint: Add second and third layers of ink as needed on the lined or shaded areas.  I colored my greenery with a marker for an even richer Garden Green.

Christmas Magic Gift Bag

My North Pole Gift Bag was fashioned with the Gift Bag Punch Board.  I gave all the snow a hint of glimmer with my Wink of Stella Brush.

Grady and the wonder of burnt food

Oh, the things that children say.  Here's some thoughts from Grady, my grandson.

"Mom, that was really amazing! I didn't know food could burn like that. Wow!" 😂😂

Family legend has it that I am prone to burning things when occupied stamping.  For some reason my mind wanders and I loose all track of time when I am creating in my craft room.  Well, I challenge you to not let your mind wander when you see the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Let's just say, "It Rocks!".   Oh, and try not to burn anything.

A Moose in Sunglasses?

Jolly Friends Stampin' Up!

Sneak Peek Alert

Yes, there really is a Moose with sunglasses and more in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  Seriously, there so many cute things in the new Holiday Catalog that I don't know where to begin.  Sneak Peeks and Preorder privileges are some of my favorite things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  The Man in the big brown truck stopped by my house yesterday with some new playthings.

How many Sneak Peeks can you find?

2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

How many did you find?

The Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder knocked my socks off.  It's way more than an ordinary embossing folder.  It's 3-D.  I couldn't believe how thick it was when I found it in the box.  Now I know why, you only with one cutting pad when using this embossing folder.  Watch the Stampin' Up! Video below to see how it works.

Hats off to the cute Jolly Friends stamp set.  There's a moose, an elf, a fox, Santa, hats, scarves, sunglasses and more.  There's 21 stamps in all.

Love coordinating punches?  Check out the Jolly Hat Builder Punch.  

Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine comes with two spools.  Yes, I send spools.  No bends in this baker's twine.  And...the striped twine has a hint of metallic woven in it.

I love the classic Red and White color combo of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape and the patterns will stretch well beyond the holidays.
