Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY! Hope your week is going well – I’m in post away-from-home try-to-get-in-the-swing-of-things mode! FINALLY got back on the treadmill on Tuesday. Bleh – but…have I mentioned that I really like wearing clothes straight off the rack (from JJill if possible – like…when it’s on sale!!) and knowing with very little doubt that a medium will fit?? ROFL!
So…back to the careful-of-every-bite regime and….the dreadmill.
My card today is a clean and simple one that is quick to make for Christmas! I used the sweet little Tree Angle stamp set – one of the flyover sets in the current mini catalog. It coordinates with the Stitched Triangles Dies (part of The Right Triangle bundle in the Annual Catalog) – which is handy! Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch this week.
And the color palette is from The Spot color challenge.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Tree Angle at the bottom in Real Red. Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.
On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped some trees. All of the trees – except one of the smallest ones – was stamped in Pear Pizzazz. That lone tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow.
On the more….squatty?…tree (the isosceles triangle, if you’re interested in my mad math skills!)…I added the Tree Angle poinsettia image in Real Red and the leaves in Mossy Meadow.
I cut the trees out with their matching dies in the Stitched Triangle Dies.
I adhered the flower-strewn tree at the top with Liquid Glue. Then I added the rest of the trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.
I tied a little bow from Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it to the top tree with a Glue Dot. Tip: the braided trim can be gently pulled apart to make it a little wider and…”lacier”!
I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the trees (and the middle of the poinsettias!) and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped the Tree Angle sentiment three times in Real Red on a Whisper White panel. In the corner I added the isosceles tree again – letting it spill off the corner of the panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Tree Angle tree with Poinsettias on the front…
…and I pulled out some Heartwarming Hugs DSP for the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This little “flyover” Tree Angle set is deceptively easy to overlook. The sweet little tree images – with their old-fashioned decoration – should not be missed. Especially given that you can get the dies to cut them out -when you purchase the Stitched Triangles die set – either on its own or…better!…as part of a money-saving bundle with The Right Triangle stamp set! 🙂
I hope you like – and will pick this up for your Christmas cards!!

Online Host Club Openings – and a New Customer Bonus!
I’ve got openings in my Online Host Club starting on 1 Dec – and new little bonus for my Customers – which will ALSO be one of the new benefits of being in an Online Host Club! Whoo-hoo!
What is an Online Host Club? Glad you asked!
An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host! And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time. While earning FREE goodies!
A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms. Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.
Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example! As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!
At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.
What are the other bennies of a Host Club?
- At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
- Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months. Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
- You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders. Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift! (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!). You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
- You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members. That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
- Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
- FREE catalogs during your membership term
- FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
- A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
- At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!
When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments. This is a great time to join a club – with the pending release of the 2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in January, too!
Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!
If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at email@example.com!
Now – the new Customer Bonus!
So – I’m setting up a “ZOOM The Craftroom” time with me every week! Every Monday, I’ll be in my craft room doing…something!… and you can pop in and we’ll craft together and chat or…whatever! Very casual – no makeup required (I for sure won’t have any on!). It’s a great time to ask questions or get help with problems or issues you’re having! Or…we can just work on our projects together and yak.
Like the Ordering Gifts – you’ll receive the Zoom meeting link when you place an order of $50 or greater (before shipping and tax)! There’ll be a new link every month. All you do is download Zoom and then you can click on the link at the start of the Office Hours and you’ll be in! No account needed. 🙂
Our first Zoom the Craftroom will be on 23 Nov at 2pm Eastern! I sure hope I get to meet you and spend a little time with you!

Finn Fan Fix
Finn missed me pretty bad, I guess. When I got home the other night, he acted like he hadn’t seen me in 4 months – not 4 days!
And then that evening….
Good thing we have a loooooong sofa!! 🙂
