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!!

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!

Stars are a CLASSIC Christmas motif! STITCHED STARS DIES #150653 has 23 die images to choose from! The star on this card is the largest image. It's die cut from the fun MERCURY GLASS DESIGNER ACETATE #150441.
The star is mounted onto NOBLE PEACOCK FOIL PAPER #149495 that has been embossed with the SUBTLE 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER #151775 for texture. "MERRY' is die cut with the MERRY CHRISTMAS DIES #147912.

Everyone needs Gift Card Holders for the Holiday. This one is very easy!
Cut base card stock 4-1/4" x 11", and score at 5-1/2" and 8-1/2". Use about a 1" circle punch to punch a thumb hole in the edge of the card stock. This edge folds to the inside of the card and is attached only on the side edges with strong adhesive like Tear & Tape #138995. Attach the inside layer that is 4" X 2-1/2". Last, close your card and attach the front layer so it hides the inside layer. The lovely sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set #147702.
Here is a FUN "easel card" made with the Dashing Deer Stamp Set #147728! It's easy to create.
Cut the base cardstock 4-1/4" X 11, scored at 5-1/2" and 8-1/4". Create your card and attach only the lower half of the front layer. Inside, place a "STOP" for the lower front edge of the card to rest against. I often place a sentiment on the "stop." The "stop" needs to be dimensionalized. Very simply and impressive! Try it!

Farmhouse Christmas Bundle #147922 is FUN!! I created a wintery scene with lot of white for snow. The house and porch have frosty roofs created with Clear Wink of Stella #141897. It dries very quickly.
This bundle could easily create a spooky Halloween scene, too.
Such a HAPPY fellow because he is surrounded by HAPPY COLORS of Real Red and Granny Apple Green! This is an easy format: simply cut 1" off the right front edge of your basic card. That piece becomes the banner by tucking 1" under the inside Whisper White layer and folding back over the front! PRESTO!
This arrow shows where the 1" banner tab is tucked under the inside white layer.
Blends were used to color the Spirited Snowman #148072. Time to start those Christmas cards!
Christmas is coming FAST!! Here is a quick, inexpensive little gift idea. These are composition books covered with the BEAUTIFUL "All is Bright" Designer Series Paper #147892.
I placed Tear & Tape #138995 on all edges of the book. I avoided the fabric spine because it flexes when the book opens. Next I placed a straight edge of the designer paper right along the fabric spine, smooth the paper, opened the cover and cut away the excess designer paper.
This paper is colorful and playful! This book would make a great Christmas Shopping List or Teacher gift!
This paper is from the same package, but has an elegant feel.
Try covering any size book that suits your needs. It's easy!!
