Count My Blessings

Now that the Holiday Catalog Retirement list has posted I thought I’d share some of the wonderful cards made with the sets on the list. These first projects are from my Team members, and this first card is perfect for how I’m feeling today. I was so grateful I was able to reach my feet this morning and put my shoes on for the first time in days! It’s the small things right?

Anyhow, this card uses the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set (144787/144790) and the Colorful Seasons Bundle from the main catalog. Don’t you love the font? Cindy used the Baby Wipe technique to create the fall leaves along with some heat embossing for the sentiment.

I’m very grateful for my team and enjoy the time I get to spend with them. They have been such a wonderful part of my journey with Stampin’ Up! and have become wonderful friends over the years.

Here is a beautiful card made with the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle (144670) and a lovely little gift jar of chocolate chai.

This next project was made by Deborah and is filled with wonderful little goodies (that’s candy of course! Deborah is the best at finding new and unique items to fill her 3ds with.) The box is decorated with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (144613).

And how about this beautiful card using the same pack of paper?

I love the sentiment used from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set (143726).

I was surprised to see the Christmas Quilt Bundle (16026) on the list of retired items. It’s such a great set for year round use – after all who doesn’t have fond memories of laying under a hand stitched quilt?

And how about this wonderful card using the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (144623) and Winter Wonderland Embossing Folder (144686)? I REALLY need to stock up on this paper since I have tons of projects left to make with it for my daughter!

Can you guess where the sentiment came from? It took me a bit, but it is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748/127802).

And here is another card that uses the same pack of Designer Series Paper along with the Carols of Christmas Bundle (146036/146037).

And This cute little card uses the Santa Suit Bundle (144681)

Don’t forget for the best selection of products on the Retirement List you’ll want to shop early. Accessories always go fast and Bundles are considered in that group because of the Framelits and Thinlits Dies. The good new is stamp sets will be guaranteed available through December 21st. After that their while supplies last too.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the Retirement List & Year End Sale I know there is a lot going on and it can be kinda confusing.

Gourd Goodness & More

Here is Georgia we are reaping the benefits of a warm front, it’s in the mid 60s and they are expecting 70 for the high tomorrow so I’m not exactly feeling winter today. LOL!! So instead I thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful swaps I received during OnStage Live in Salt Lake.

This first card uses the Gourd Goodness stamp (144785) set found in the Holiday Catalog and the wonderful Burlap Background stamp (143979/143982).

I just love the feel of texture on this card – these two sets have lots of texture built right into them. And if you don’t already have the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748/127802) it’s a must have, since it contains over 20 different sentiments!

These next two cards use the Vintage Leaves stamp set (138802)

White embossing has been teamed up with our Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper.

And how about this card – I just love the texture created with our Embossing Paste (141979) and the Pattern Party Decorative masks (144103).

I really like the white on white used for creating the textured background on this card.

And here is a fun one – the Leaflets Framelits Dies (138283) were used to create this lovely card using the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163).

The die was used to create a cut out from a scrap piece of card stock which was laid on top of the Whisper White piece. Sponges were used to shade in the leaf and then the mask was removed and the tree was stamped. Striking.

And finally here is one that I recently cased for a class.

It uses the Sheet Music Background stamp, Colorful Seasons and sentiment is from the Count My Blessings stamp set from the Holiday Catalog on page 50. If you haven’t seen this set you might want to check it out.
