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.

Winter Wonderland

I love the images found in the Wonderland stamp set (139752/140365) found in the holiday catalog. And since the set includes a suite of products that coordinate with it this set is so easy to use and create wonderful projects.

Here are two cards that I received in swaps that use items that are currently on sale in our Online Extravaganza that ends on Monday, November 30th.

This first card is done with Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The Gold Embossing Powder adds yet another layer of color. Check out the delicate Venetian Crochet Trim (134581) that adds yet another layer of texture to this tone on tone card given to me at On Stage by Amber.

And how about this elegant card that Joanne gave me.

Wonderland swap 2015 (2)

It uses the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper (139588) and the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack (139594) to create layers of color and textures. I love these little silver snowflake embellishments aptly named Winter Wonderland Embellishments (139621) are lovely and add a bit of sparkle to your projects. And I love this type of snow!
