Nature Sings, Christmas Pines & More

The Online Extravaganza continues today with Annual Catalog Stamps & Kits and so I thought I’d share some holiday cards made with sets from the Annual Catalog.

This first group uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and contains beautiful nature images so I’ve used it for my guy friends too.

Looking for something a bit more traditional? How about these cards using the Christmas Pines stamp set (142049)?

Or the Hearts Come Home stamp set (145413/145416)?

You know me with snowflakes. LOL! The Snowflake Sentiments set (144817/144820) is filled with great sentiments too and has a wonderful coordinating Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies (144678).

And of  course one of my favorite things – coffee! Here are a couple of cards using the Coffee Cafe stamp set (143677).

I love this set for gifts too!

And today’s final card uses the Ready for Christmas stamp set (144823) and coordinating Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (144679)

Whew! Which set is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

Christmas Pines

Pine boughs… can you smell the fresh cut pine? It’s one of my strongest holiday memories. Going out in the cold Wisconsin afternoon, tramping through the snow and choosing a tree together. (My dad had planted a whole field of them on our property when I was about 4 and it was my job to stomp the dirt down around the saplings trunk.)

When we got home the guys always trimmed the trunk and screwed the tree into the tree stand. I know I’m really dating myself LOL! Some years those lopsided little blue spruce were a bit misshaped, but since we back them up against the wall it was all good. Now a days we use an artificial tree, not as much fun I’m afraid, but more practical with my allergies.

Oh well, this set just reminds me of all those beautiful boughs from childhood. And it’s got some wonderful sentiments too


Here are two wonderful cards that I was given. This first one from Jackie has a bit of sparkle and shine to it since she uses our Red Glimmer Paper (121790) and Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine  (141983).


And this second card from Theresa  has tons of texture – I’ve included the recipe for you below.
