Frantic Stamper Merry Christmas

Laurie here with a square shaped Christmas card today.

This card features the beautiful Poinsettia FRA-DIE-09283. I just love it in red...I also added some branches from Reindeer Features FRa-DIE-10712. 

The Scalloped Square basics FRA-DIE- 09934 is such a beautiful die too...I love the stitching.
The sentiment is from Stylish Merry Christmas FRA-DIE-10996 cut out in gold foil. I added a sparkly gold enamel dot in the center of the bloom too.

I love making Christmas fun and festive!

Stampin' Up paper

Wow....I have a set of FIVE cards to share today! That doesn't happen very often.

I have been rummaging in my paper and die stash again. Well, as I have mentioned, I am on a mission to use up some of the wonderful things I have in my collection.
It's time!

So today it's all about Stampin' Up paper.
 I'm so grateful for this company by the way. Many years ago I saw a catty at work and decided to attend a meeting. My first thought was...these prices are crazy. Who would buy this stuff!


Not only did I buy, but I also became a demonstrator and this led to so many awesome experiences and friendships. And this blog! What a great hobby this has been and I have had so many blessings along the way.

Now I am not as into SU as I was, and appreciate other companies too. 

But you just can't beat their papers!

I had been hoarding this foil paper and matching designer paper for a few years now. I used strips and snippets of it here and there and this is what I came up with. The snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn, and the sentiments from Creative Expressions.

Merry Little Christmas anything goes

Christmas tags

What? More tags?

Yes I told you I love to make them and I have a ton of posts that I have not published yet. So another goal of mine is to use up all those unplubished posts and start sharing them!

The trees are from Spellbinders and the tiny house from Tim Holtz. 

I'm warning you, there will be more posts of tags in Stamping Up Norths future!

Christmas bird

Hi everyone!

Today at Addicted to Stamps and More the challenge is Christmas:

I started out with a blue dotted rectangle from Tutti Designs. Then I added the morning bird from Birchpress, and have him perched on some pine from Memorybox.

I did a bit of shading to the branch and cone using my sponge brushes.

I hope you play along with us at ATSM!
