Festive Phrases

Here is a simple but whimsical Christmas card that is sure to put a smile on the face of anyone lucky enough to receive it.  

I used Stampin' Up's brand new Stampin' Blends Markers to color the cute little elf image from the Festive Phrases Stamp Set.  

Have you tried these markers yet.  I have a brand new Stampin' Blends Marker Club that is beginning in December where you can get all of these markers over a four month period.  Email me at if you would like more information.

If you would like to make this card, here is a free tutorial for you.

Cheery Chirps

I tend to use Soft Sky when I want to make a stunning Christmas card.  I have to force myself to use other colors.  This time I made the same card using two different color palettes.  Which one do you like better?

Here is a look on the inside of the cards.

For Hosts Only!!

Today I have two cards for you.  Both are "Host" only sets.  The first one is from our Holiday Catalog.  It is called Seasons of Whimsy and has 10 fun and whimsical images.  

Here is a look on the inside.

In order to receive this stamp set or any other "Host" set, you must place a qualifying order of $150 or more through my online store.  You then can choose this set or any other set with your hostess benefits.

In the City is another one of our awesome "Host" set.  This set actually has 60...that's right 60, photopolymer stamps in this set.  Just thing of all of the possibilities.  It's endless.

Smitten Mittens

This card happens to be one of three projects that my club members made in October.  (If you are local to Canton, MI and would like to join one of my Hostess Clubs, email me at

Tips & Tricks

  • First, I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the snowflake.
  • I cropped out a mitten with Whisper White CS using the "solid" mitten frame lit.
  • I cropped out a mitten Real Red CS using the "detailed" mitten framelit.
  • I attached the two together with Tombow glue and adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Here is a look on the inside.

  • I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to create the ruffle under the DSP.  (The Decorative Ribbon Border Punch is like having two punches.  The top and the bottom have different ruffles.)

Smitten Mittens Bundle is one of my favorite bundles from our 2017 Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set and the framelits are sold separately, however when you purchase them as a bundle, you save 10%.

Here are the products needed to create this card.  Click on the products to order from Stampin' Up anytime!!
