Merry Christmas to All Tutorial & More

Well as you can see I didn’t get to post this yesterday afternoon like I had hoped, but the good news is I can share it with you today and even more!

Last month my team enjoyed a shoe box swap and so today I thought I’d share some of them with you. This first card uses the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (147702). This set is filled with wonderful sentiments and has a coordinating Thinlits set, Merry Christmas (147912).

I love the warm country feel of the Festive Farmhouse Suite that was used to highlight this set. How about you? And good news I thought you might enjoy making this card too so I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial that includes the complete supply list for you!

And here is another fun card using the Fun Santa’s Workshop Suite of products.

I feel in LOVE with the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper (147809) with its flocking! It’s so much fun and you can use the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies (147809) to cut out the images! How fun is that?

And how about another tutorial with a full supply list for you? I couldn’t resist. lol

And this final card uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (141851) from the Annual Catalog.


Today’s cards are all part of a shoe box swap that we did at the Blue Mountain Stampers Weekend Getaway in August. This getaway is a time for my team to gather and spend the weekend together. We spend the time laughing, sharing and of course stamping with the new products from the Holiday Catalog PreOrder. It’s a lot of fun and I can’t believe we’ve already been doing this for 6 years now! I love these retreats and spending the time with my team – each and every member is such a blessing to me and we’ve become friends over the years.

Does this sound like fun to you? Love the new products? Do you have a big wish list? As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see a new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right?  Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Half Full & More

Have friends who love a good glass of wine? If so then this fun Half Full stamp set might just be for you since you can make all kinds of wonderful things with it such as this card.

And I just love the rich colors, Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide that were used when creating this card. I hope you can  see the sheen on the bottle and glass? Did you know you can use your Fine Tip Glue Pen to create this glass like look. Simply apply and allow to dry, and voila it looks like  glass! Cool right?

Got that bottle of wine or sparkling cider to give and need a tag? How about this beautiful tag using the Year of Cheer Suite of Products you can find on page 37 of our Holiday Catalog? The Cheers to the Year stamp set (144925/144928) is great for not only the holiday season but weddings too.

And who can resist the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (1446640) filled with rich metallics? I love this pack of our paper.

And here are some more wonderful swaps I received at OnStage in Salt Lake.
