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:

The Memories & More Card Pack lets you make a big ole stack of Christmas cards lickety-split.  Adhere the large – or small! – cards to each of the card fronts with a little adhesive – stamp a sentiment on the inside and maybe add one of the included stickers and….insert slapping done-hands emoji!  Easy and also peasy! 🙂

Check these out!

Oh – did I mention that each card base and envelope has gorgeous red foil accents?

Sorry.  They totally do!

This one has a sentiment sticker on it that’s included in the pack!

Yes – I DID stamp the pine bough from the Cherish the Season stamp set onto the front of my envelopes in Shaded Spruce! 🙂

This one has a beautiful die cut sentiment sticker added to the card front!

On the insides, I added a sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set – and a sticker from the pack…

And this card shows two things.  One – it’s got a sentiment from the Cherish the Season set.  AND – you can see the foil design – on the cards where I used the large Memories & More cards – I flipped the card base inside-out – so that I didn’t cover up that gorgeous red foil!  😉

I’ve still got Memories & More cards and beautiful gold and white die cut sentiment stickers leftover so I can make even more cards!  And – there are more designs, too!

Et Voila!  As you head into the rush, bustle and stress of the holiday season – take a little bit of the pressure off!  The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating cards and envelopes can help you create beautiful Christmas cards – that you’ll be PROUD to send – and still have time leftover to bake that extra batch of Christmas cookies to decorate with the kids!

So.  Now for the even-more-better part – where I give you a chance to save a little money – and spend some time hanging out and making Christmas Cards with me!

I’ve got a Special Bundle for you – good from right now thru the end of the day on Friday, 30 Oct.

Hope to see a bunch of you on 17 Nov!!

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:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge – although you can see I gave it a flip!

And I also played along with the Festive Friday challenge.  Look for a Hot Drink, Plaid, Die Cut, Pearls, Brown and Gold in my card!

Finally – I made this one be a little more masculine in tone – for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next – using a Stitched Rectangle Die – I cut four pieces of Cinnamon Cider Plaid Tidings DSP.  I used the same die to cut a Whisper White rectangle.

On the Whisper White die cut, I stamped a Press On sentiment in Early Espresso (I feel like this color MUST be on any card that has a coffee theme.  Am I right??!).  I cheated the sentiment towards the left side of the rectangle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the rectangles to the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the large cup image from Press On in Early Espresso.  Then I stamped it again.  Then I stamped it a THIRD time on the same In Good Taste DSP that I’d used for the card front.

I fussy cut one of the whole cups.  Then I fussy cut just that lid.  THEN I fussy cut the coozy from the DSP-stamped image.

I adhered the coozy to the full-cup image with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the lid on.

Using my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend – I very lightly brushed it on the sides of the cup and lid – to help it look a little less….flat! 😉

I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a piece of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – I fussy cut a small pumpkin (in Cajun Craze and gold foil) – and popped it onto the coozy with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend – popped them on – and the caed front was done!

On the inside, I matted another piece of In Good Taste DSP on Cinnamon Cider and adhered it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another Plaid Tidings Stitched Rectangles Die with Liquid Glue as well.  I added a second Press On sentiment in Early Espresso – and a Cinnamon Cider colored Pearl Basic Jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got an Early Espresso Press On cup – colored with my Light Crumb Cake Blend and another fun sentiment…

…and a little more Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Press On stamp set is so much fun – I love the “steam” sentiment and the large images – but…take a peek at the little line of cups!  I think it’s perfect for when you need a masculine card, don’t you?

I hope you like!

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:
