Holly Jolly Layers Host Stamp Set


I have a guest stamper today, my friend and team member, Shari Wicks of Florida! What a VERY SWEET card she made featuring the Host Stamp Set, Holly Jolly Layers!


The Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Squares Framelits are a perfect pair!! Lovely, Shari!! Thanks for sharing. Please note: the NEW Stitched Shapes Framelits have sold out and will be back in stock the end of January. Put them on your WISH LIST!!

Peaceful Pines with Sparkle


Peaceful Pines Stamp Set is FULL of options! I like a little SPARKLE myself! This card has a generous 1/4" frame of Silver Glimmer Paper.


I used an assortment of colored Enamel Shapes to decorate the tree! This card was favorite in a recent class of mine. Simple and Classic!

Triple Fold Card Measurements


A TRIPLE FOLD card is the perfect showcase for designer papers, like "This Christmas" Specialty Designer Series Paper!


The BASE CARD is 12 X 5-1/2". Score the long side at 4-1/4, 7-1/4, & 10-1/4". Try it!


Use a BELLY BAND to hold all the folds together. The band can be any width - mine is 3/4 X 9-1/2".

Cookie Cutter Christmas


Stampin' Up!'s Cookie Cutter Christmas BUNDLE is so versatile. The punch that looks like a Gingerbread man, also punches out this reindeer when you use it upside down!!


This is a cute fold - a card inside of a card! It's NOT a pocket.


Measurements for this card are very flexible. I cut Island Indigo card stock 8-1/2 X 4/1/4" and scored it at 5-1/2". I cut the Basic Black Card stock 8-1/2 X 3-1/2" scored at 4-1/2". Center the smaller card on the largest area of the bigger card. Interlock flaps. 

I have most of my Christmas cards in the mail - do you???

Gift Card Holder from Envelope


This is a QUICK Gift Card Holder from a Stampin' Up! Envelope! I've used this idea for decades because there are so many endless ways to embellish it! I made this video a few years ago. The NEW Classic Label Punch works well, also. If I'm in a real hurry, I just skip the "slot & tuck" part. The flap folding over the top lets you use the gummed edge as a closure! Please try this - great for lot of occasions!!
