Christmas Time is Here Suite

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime is Here Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

‘Sup, y’all!  How did the Fall-Back go for you?  It’s 7am here.  But really 8.  So – you should be wide-awake and perky!  Your dogs and cats and ponies are looking at you like – what the HECK!! – but…YOU got an extra hour of sleep.

Or…did you??!

Regardless – we’re in it now until Spring.  Bleh.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your last evening in Daylight Savings Time with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here ’tis on YouTube!

The project we did last night is quite timely, since we’re plunging headlong into Gift Card Giving Season (GCGS).  I like giving gift cards – I do! – but…they always seem a little like I phoned it in.  So…I feel BETTER about it if I can present them in a beautiful and/or clever gift card holder.  And this one is both!  With the gorgeous Christmas Rose stamp set and bundled Rose Dies, atop wunnermus Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

My friend Sue did a similar fun-fold last week – you can see her card right here – and I just modified it a little bit to get the gift card holder portion on the inside!

I selected two coordinating patterns to use from the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – and both pieces are matted on Mossy Meadow throughout the card.

The card base itself is a piece of Poppy Parade cut at 4 1/4″ x 7 1/2″ and scored/folded at 2″.  Then the gift card holder – also Poppy Parade – is 3 1/2″ x 9″ that I scored and folded at 5″.

For the gift card holder itself, I first adhered a Mossy Meadow panel to the Poppy Parade panel – then (with Tear & Tape Adhesive), added another piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP.  I used my Pretty Label Punch to cut a decorative “finger hold”.

The sentiment, from the Christmas Rose stamp set – is stamped in Poppy Parade on Whisper White. I used the fill-in image from the set to stamp the leaves/boughs in Mossy Meadow – and added a Soft Suede Pine Cone.

On the front is a stamped Christmas Rose.  I stamped the image in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it with the matching die in the Rose Die set.  Then I used my Light and Dark Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to color it.

I adhered the die cut rose with Liquid Glue – letting part of it hang over the left edge of the gift card holder.  Then I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Christmas Rose boughs and cones on the front…

…and a little more of the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  I love this fun-fold – it’s really easy to do and makes quick work of creating a wowza Gift Card Holder for GCGS!  And the Christmas Rose and bundled Rose Dies are a wonderful way to decorate it, with help from the beautiful Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP!  I hope you like – and will make some of your own!

Finn Fan Fix


On Saturday, we fixed fence.  It’s time to move the girls off the back pasture so we can seed it for winter grass – which means they need to be able to go in the front pasture.

Also – the back is getting pretty sparse – which Cady made VERY clear to us when she jumped out of the pasture – twice! – to roam around the barn grazing.

Yep.  Time to fix fence!

So – that’s what we did.  With Finn’s help, of course.  He is QUITE the ranch hand!  And the weather – a little chilly for us but perfect for fur-balls – was just his cuppa tea!  He was ready to ROLL!!

Now – to be honest – there’s a pretty limited set of fence-repair tasks that a four-legged-thumbless person can actually do.

A lot of it is….moral support and watching for interlopers!

Scouting for deer tracks…

Oh – you can’t see him?  Yea – he’s off in the woods “looking”…

While Wayne and I took down broken boards and put up replacements…

…he was working on getting rid of debris.  One.  Stick.  At.  A.  Time.

Everyone has a niche…

At one point, he managed to get a very short ZOOOOM thru the pond – which then made him ZZZZZZOOOOOOOMMMMM around us for a minute – until he claimed the pond rock as his own.

By the end of the afternoon, when I came in to start on dinner and get ready for my Saturday video, my furry ranch-hand was plum tuckered.  He ate his breakfast, got a drink and…

Crashed – until it was time to feed the ponies!

A good day’s work – but that fencing and ranch-handing is hard work, y’all! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


Now – I know y’all have been seeing the the sightings of the Great White sharks patrolling the Atlantic shores these past week, right?

Well.  You MIGHT be surprised to know that Great….uhm….Whites…have been spotted MUCH further inland.

And there have been photos snapped of them viciously attacking giant squids.

WARNING:  the next photos are graphic and not for the faint of heart.

Yes, I know.  It’s brutal and hard to see… 😉

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime is Here And So Is the Paper Trimmer!!

Happy Friday, y’all!!  And – more to the point! – happy First of November!! When TWO big things are NOW available for you to purchase!  The first is the Christmastime is Here Suite – which is the focal point for my card today.  The SECOND is the BRAND SPANKING NEW PAPER TRIMMER!!!  Whoo-hoo!!  Go get yours RIGHT NOW – here’s a link!

So – I mentioned the Christmastime is Here Suite….that’s what I used to create today’s Christmas card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Fab Friday Challenge!

I started with a rose-strewn piece of the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow.  Then I took another smaller piece, matted IT on Mossy Meadow and adhered it with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

I used the die in the Roses Die set (bundled with the Christmas Roses stamp set) to cut a Mossy Meadow lattice, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

One VERY cool feature of the Roses Die set is that the largest die actually cuts out a ginormously beautiful rose image from one of the designs in the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP.  Which is what I did!

With Glue Dots, I looped some of the pretty Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon a few times – then I popped the big die-cut rose over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas Rose sentiment in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink on Whisper White and cut it out with a die in the Roses Die set.  Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it over the roses.

I fussy cut a smaller two-rose image from the DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals to the sentiment.

Finally, I added a small bow from the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon with a Glue Dot, and a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots here and there – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Christmas Rose sentiment in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.  Next to it, using one of the fill-images in the set – but only inking a single pine bough – I added a couple of Mossy Meadow boughs.  And then a couple of Soft Suede pinecones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the pine boughs and cones on the front…

…and a little more of the gold-embellished Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Y’all – the Christmas Rose set and bundled Rose Dies are….gorgeous!  And the Paper.  THE PAPER!!  I am seriously in love with this Christmastime is Here Suite of goodies – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for your Christmas projects!  I mean….Roses.  Pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  Dies that cut the images from the DSP.  What’s not to love?!?  I hope you like!

You can buy the whole Suite – sort of like an “easy button” – and you’ll get all the goods to make this card PLUS the gorgeous gold-tone bracelet!  Check it all out down below!
