Stampin’ Up! Father Christmas Magic

Mornin’, y’all – happy Hawmp Day – I hope your week is going well!  We’re finally having Fall.  It’s gorgeous here – I see the leaves “raining” down – that’s what we’re going to name our farm one of these days.  Raining Leaf Farm.  We have so many trees that when Fall really “hits” and the wind blows or rain falls, the leaves truly look like rain!  It’s completely cool.  I love this time of year!

Okay – a few little admin-y things before we get to the card, okay?

Number 1:  Copper Foil Sheets.  If you didn’t catch it yesterday, here’s the deal.  They’ve been so completely and wildy popular that they’re almost extinct.  Like…after TODAY at 8am (Mountain Time)….they’re going to be on the “Non-Orderable” List.  You can still order them until 8am (MT) – they’re going to show as backordered, but the system will allow you to place the order and get on the list to get in on the final shipment.  So – if you want any of this pretty paper – get it now.  I have no way to tell you when it will come back to being available.  Here’s a link right to the Copper Foil Sheets if you want to go grab them right now.

Number 2:  You’ve got until this evening to take advantage of the Stampin’ Up! World Card Making Day special and get 25% off select items.  Scroll on down for the details!

Number 3:  I found out yesterday that one of my cards from last week was selected as an Artist Pick over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, for their challenge #247!  What a great surprise it was to read this in my inbox!  Thanks to all the fine and talented folks at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  I appreciate you all.  If you want to go see that card, here’s a link.

Okay – whew!  Still with me?!  Sorry about that, but…there’s just stuff you needed to know, okay??  In a timely fashion! 🙂

So – on to the good stuff.  My card today is a study in Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  I used two old-fashioned-y stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog – Christmas Magic and Father Christmas.  And added some warmth and texture with the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Father Christmas for a Single Stamp Set Sunday!

Well, I failed in my plan to get into another hoarder-hide-away. 🙁  Just didn’t want to – I wanted to make a card or two!  So that’s what I did and we’ll get right to it, cuz I figure y’all have things to do today, yes?  Let’s all delude ourselves that I’m going to do what I need to do today, too, shall we?  If we all believe, it could happen!

The stamp set I used today is one that caught my eye from the moment I saw it in the new Holiday Catalog.  Father Christmas – is a beautiful, vintage-y set, just itching to be front and center on your Christmas cards this year.

I did it up in classic vintage colors – Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.  Take a look-see:
