What a great masculine birthday card from Toile Christmas Stamp Set #150469!! The Buffalo Check Background #151372 gives a bold guy feeling!
This cardinal is a perfect image to color with Stampin' Blends! The cardinal already has shading from the artist!

These bells are colored with Stampin' Blends in Real Red and Mossy Meadow. The white is Shimmery White Card Stock.
The section that opens measures 3 X 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".
The crisp gingham and classic polka dot background are the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper #153492. Start your Holiday cards SOON!
What's a "two-fer?" A two-fer is ONE cut that creates TWO cards. Such as by using both the positive and negative die cut shapes! These cards started with one sheet of Whisper White Card Stock 4-1/4" x 3-1/2". The three window shapes that were removed from the die cutting were recycled on the Halloween card saving TIME!!
These ADORABLE cards were created by my friend and team member, Barb Faulkner. She used Have a Hoot Bundle #155208 and Stampin' Blends for color.
SAVE TIME by making your Halloween cards and Christmas cards at the same time! Thanks for sharing this great idea with charming results, Barb!! Love it!!

Nancy's special: Order the FREE AS A BIRD BUNDLE #151123 and received my BIRDHOUSE PATTERN in your thank you card!! It's adorable!!
NATURE'S BEAUTY Stamp Set #150528 was chosen by Shari Wicks, fellow demonstrator, to create this soft, sweet bunny card which I cased. LOVE IT!!
Do you recognize this Designer Paper?? It's MONSTER BASH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER #150447! It's PERFECT!
This is a 4 x 4" Gate Fold card: cut base card 11 x 4" and then score at 2, 3-3/4, 7-1/4, and 9". This fits in a Stampin' Up! medium envelope. (Don't use a square envelope because it's extra US postage.)
The realistic bunny is colored with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers: Light Smoky Slate and Ivory. To create the snow, I dotted on SNOWFALL ACCENT PUFF PAINT #150691 and sprinkled it with ICE STAMPIN' GLITTER #150445. Then I heated the puff paint with a heat tool and the glitter adhered. You can also adhere the glitter with SHIMMERY CRYSTAL EFFECTS #150892.
Sentiment is from MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL #147702. This is the perfect holiday card for a nature lover!! TRY IT!
Old "Trucks" are a current decor motif! Ride with Me Stamp Set #149312 is right on trend!! It's so cute and great for "guy cards," too!
By off setting the sentiment and truck, I suggested "motion!"
I added quick color to the truck with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers and used Wink of Stella #141897 on the truck window.
The background is Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper #150432 in Garden Green.
The exquisite detail in this gorgeous CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SUITE is fantastic! This suite has lots of purchasing options, but it's only available while supplies last so don't delay!

This is a three-step image, but I chose to use Stampin' Up! BLENDS Alcohol Markers in these colors: Mango Melody Combo, Old Olive Combo, Crumb Cake dark, and Cherry Cobbler dark.
Just look at the intricate details!! I mounted this die cut image onto one of my favorite embossing folder, Scripty 3D #149634. After embossing the Whisper White card stock, I lightly rubbed it with the Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Ink Pad #150711 for a festive, shimmery shine!
You will definite want to add this exquisite Christmas Rose Bundle to your stamp collection! Remember - supplies are limited so order NOV. 1st!!
When I first saw the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint #150691 in the Holiday Catalog, I thought of these Cotton stalks in the Country Home Stamp Set #147678. It's the PERFECT touch of fluffy texture!
The little bottle of magic, puffs up like: snow, cotton, lamb's wool, clouds or whipped cream!!
Experiment and practice before using this product on your finished design. For larger areas, you can apply the puffing liquid right from the tip of the bottle. I wanted small cottony puffs on my card so this worked well for me;
1. SHAKE bottle.
2. Apply a small puddle on scrap paper.
3. Use a toothpick to dot liquid in small areas. Use less than you think because it will expand.
4. Heat with a Heat Tool to puff. It grows as it puffs! LOTS OF FUN!!
The background is one piece of Mercury Glass Designer Acetate #150441 cut 5-1/2 X 4-1/4", then diagonally to make two cards. Old Olive card base.
Cajun Craze card base. Coloring is done with the amazing Stampin' Up! BLENDS alcohol markers! Try it!
