Greetings From Santa

Greetings From Santa 01

There is an amazing die on page 11 of the Holiday Mini – Detailed Santa Thinlits dies – that cuts this swirly Santa.  I’ve cased the card in the catalog and it really shows off how spectacular this die really is.  The die is the full square – it’s so easy to use.  I added the stars, edge and sentiment and this card is finished!  The best part?  It comes as a bundle!  Imagine the Santa fun!  Hugs, Fran

Shake & Celebrate

Shake & Celebrate 01

It’s almost time for the Holiday Mini catalog to be released!  This little card is made with the Shake & Celebrate set for the sentiment. Since this set is photopolymer, it’s easy to bend it slightly on the block to fit it in the Bunch of Banners die.  The star is cut with with the Star die and outlined with a gel pen.  I used the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder for the background and some burlap behind the star.  The little berries are pearls colored with an alcohol marker.  Very simple but very sweet.  Hugs, Fran

Cookie Cutter Pop It Ups

Cookie Cutter Christmas 02

I’ve combined some of my favorite things on this card – Christmas, Pop It Ups and Gingerbread Men!  The front of this card uses some of the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini sets – Candy Cane Christmas and Cookie Cutter Christmas and a new Pop It Ups die – Anita Frames Pop It Ups!

Cookie Cutter Christmas 02 open

Isn’t the Anita Frames Pop It Ups fun?  And it’s really easy to assemble – love that!  My gingerbread men are enjoying it too 🙂  They come with a matching punch that made this card super easy to put together!  Hugs, Fran

Hang Your Stockings

Hang Your Stockings 01

This is one of the cards we are making this morning in my Christmas Stamp a Stack.  It uses the soon to be released Hang Your Stockings and matching die.  The colors are Emerald Envy, Real Red and Mint Macaron – which I wasn’t sure about but is very pretty.  There is a sweet holly trinket attached to the top of the stocking.  The stocking dies will be a favorite!  Hugs, Fran

Christmas Pines

Christmas Pines 01

Christmas Pines is a huge set – 22 pieces – with a matching die!  There are several different sizes of pine boughs and pine cones.  It also has some very pretty sentiments.  This simple card also uses a cut out from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series paper.  Hugs, Fran

Holiday Mini Sneak Peek Twinkle Trees

Twinkle Trees 01

Coming September 1! This sweet tree is from a set called Twinkle Trees.  It has several stamps that create a kind of Bokeh effect when used together.  My card is done on a notecard (3 1/2 x 5) and uses Emerald Envy, Mint macaron, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler – and sequins!  🙂  I can’t wait to show you more samples of this set!  Hugs, Fran

Holiday Mini Sneak Peek Star of Light

Star of Light 01

There are so many gorgeous stamps in the upcoming Holiday Mini and this one might be my favorite – Star of Light stamp and Starlight Thinlit dies.  Using a Pool Party base, Gold foil and Bermuda Bay, the die cuts create a very light, beautiful star. And it comes in a bundle!  I used So Saffron in the background and some sequins to finish this card.  Excited?  Me too! Available September 1.  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 2

PIU Christmas front

Everyone is coming for Christmas!  Today my card features all the farm critters (plus Jolly) in true Home for Christmas style.  This 6 x 6 card is big – but so’s the family 🙂

PIU Christmas left front

Brownie is sporting a Santa-stash and glasses.  Cheeper is holding a candy cane.  And Jolly is bringing a present of cheese.  To attach the characters, the bottom layer (Brownie) is flat on the card.  The next layer is (Cheepers) is attached to Brownie.  And then Jolly is up on pop dots.  This gives it looks of dimension without being crazy.

PIU Christmas right front

William is helping with the garland and Snowball is wearing his Santa hat.  All the presents are popped up. The sentiment is from Project Life by Stampin Up Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

PIU Christmas open

Inside, Cocoa the Horse is already home!  The garland  – which is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set – surrounds the Agatha Edge at the top.

PIU Christmas open detail

The barn is decorated!  The little candle is the chimney from the House die.  The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Cozy Christmas!
