My card today has nothing to do with Christmas – except for being a birthday card.

Think about it.

I used a super cool new sentiment-only stamp set called Happy Thoughts – which will be available to y’all on 5 Jan in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  I also used a couple of free (with qualifying purchase) products from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer:  A Touch of Ink stamp set and Paper Blooms DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines and For Unto Us CAS Christmas Cards

Good morning, all – and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  The week is flying by, isn’t it?  I had to look at my watch when I started this post last night to see what day it was.  I was shocked to realize it was already Tuesday.  Yikes!

I’ve been getting some queries about ideas for easy to make Christmas cards – that are suitable for making multiples!  I made one a couple weeks back using the Curvy Christmas stamp set – you can see it here.  But – it got me to thinking, so I decided to do a riff on that one – with one of my favorite stamp sets – the Peaceful Boughs set.  I added a sentiment for the inside from For Unto Us and went back to the gorgeous Gold Cards & Envelopes, just like the first card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas Cards and a Special Offer!

Good morning.  I have a fun something-new for you today!!  You have to read on to find out what it is! 😉

First, though – I have a number for you:

52.

Do you know what that number represents?

How about if I said….7 weeks and 3 days?

No?  How about…that’s the USPS Deadline (18 Dec) – for mailing in the CONUS (ie: the US – but not to/from Hawaii/Alaska) for First Class mail to “guarantee” arrival by Christmas.

Which means – you might have just started to hyperventilate a smidge when you think about getting your Christmas cards done and in the mail!

Well – I’ve got a bit of a stress-reducing solution for you today!  And a chance to spend a few hours crafting with me!  Read on!

The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack – coupled with the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes – are the answer!  I used them – and a couple of sentiments and images from the Wishes & Wonder and Cherish the Season stamp sets to whip out a stack of gorgeous Christmas cards.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Press On In Good Taste!

Good morning and welcome back to the week!  Did y’all have a good weekend?  We enjoyed ours – no more riding for us due to the wet and sloggy mud from Saturday’s rain.  Hoping to get back out there a couple times this week!

I made a quick and easy card for you today.  Now – there IS a little fussy cutting but it’s so worth it.  And not all that hard.  I used the fun Press On stamp set – for all us coffee lovers! – and TWO designer papers (BOTH of which are on SALE right now:  The In Good Taste DSP and Plaid Tidings DSP.  Two of my faves!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Festive Corners in the Pines for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

As I started to work on this sketch – my brain saw some some plaid.  Duh, Mare…  and…the Festive Corners stamp set.  As I worked thru building the card – my plan to put one of the vertical sentiments from Festive Corners in the middle of the oval sort of fell thru.  But – it was an easy fix – I added pines from the In The Pines stamp set (even better!).  Take a look-see:
