Here in North Georgia we’re expecting some bad weather this weekend and for us it means the milk and bread is flying off the shelves at the grocery store – don’t ask me why, its an odd phenomenon but it happens every time a winter event is predicted. A real snow, it’s a rare thing here in Georgia and I always looked forward to the chance to build a snowman with my children as they were growing up and sharing my Wisconsin childhood experiences with them. While I don’t like to shovel, or dig the car out, I do enjoy looking out the window at the snow with a crackling fire going while we warm up from playing outside with our hot chocolate – yes, even now. So when I saw the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I couldn’t resist.
Take a look at these cards made with the set.
We’ll be using this set in my December Card Class (Click HERE for more information) to create winter Birthday Cards.
Now that my children are adults this song evokes different feelings for me this time of year – How about you? The I’ll Be Home stamp set contains this beautiful image along with some lovely fonts and sentiments that include a You’re Invited for those holiday parties.
Check out these lovely cards using this set.
The supplies used for these cards are part of our Year End Closeout – so why not check them out before they’re gone?
Love to color? The Joy & Noel stamp set creates bold images that are perfect for coloring. And great news you can get Stampin’ Blends in Real Red and Shaded Spruce right now – a perfect color combination for holiday cards.
Take a look at just how lovely the images are
This stamp set is part of our Year End Closeout List and will be retiring – so it’s while supplies last.
Today’s card is one I designed for my December birthday cards that I’ll be sending out tomorrow for everyone. I love the bright cheerful colors and patterns that this pack of paper contains in addition to the gold foil accents.
So what do you think?
Here is the tutorial so if you’d like to make some of these cards to send your family and friends you can too!

With Facebook sometimes we forget to mail cards and I’ve always loved snail mail. Remember the feeling of going to your mail box after a long day and finding something in the mail box besides flyers and bills? It always made me feel good to know someone was thinking of me.
If you’d like a birthday card in 2019 from me email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com include your Name, address and phone number along with your birthday. No year needed since we’re all young at heart! And I’ll send you a birthday card – yep it’s that easy!
This bundle is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog – it’s filled with traditional images and has a coordinating die set so you can create all kinds of projects for the holidays. Here are some wonderful cards using this bundle.
So what do you think? Got a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?
Lights on the tree – I love them and they are one of my earliest memories of the holiday season. Remember when the whole strand wouldn’t work until you found the bulb that didn’t work? That was part of my job as a child – to find the bulb so that my older siblings could start putting the strings of lights on. Back then they were the big bulbs now my tree has the little LED lights. How far we’ve come! Stringing the lights is much faster now. LOL!
The Making Christmas Bright stamp set allows you create quick and easy cards without the hassle of the old days! AND it comes with a coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch so who can resist? What can I say, I love the ease of a punch for making tons of projects.
AND since we have the option of an All Occasions set too, Making Everyday Bright (148813) it’s a winning combination. (The fact this set has a cute little penguin in it doesn’t hurt either. I’m a sucker for penguins!)
This little set includes an image that is a built in frame made from holly – this gives you the ability to layer and create wonderful note cards or used separately like on this card gives you a lovely image left just as.
And these little birds are too cute. The set contains some wonderful sentiments also along with a Hand Stamped By sentiment perfect for your holiday gift projects.
I grew up cross stitching projects for my family and friends and now you can create beautiful images with the Cross Stitched Christmas looking images with the Cross Stitch Christmas Stamp set and our Stamparatus for your family and friends this holiday season.
This card has been teamed up with our Quilt Top Embossing Folder (144687) for a subtle hand stitched look in the background too. Just lovely in it’s simplicity.
And speaking of traditions – baking is one of my favorite things during the holidays. I crank up Bing Crosby and spend the day in the kitchen. I make old favorites and try new recipes too, so the cookie tray is always a tasting experience. So the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set is one of my favorites (142043). Here are some wonderful swaps I received using this set.
How about you? What is a tradition you enjoy during the holidays? Why not leave me a comment and tell me your favorite tradition?
