More Holiday Swap Cards to share

Here they are as promised, more cards from one of my holiday card swaps. As a Stampin'Up! demonstrator I participate in organized card swaps and I love them!  What a great way to share ideas using new products! Soon we will be swapping cards using products from the Stampin'Up! Occasions catalog. But for now there's still time to share a few more holiday ideas.  If you see something you like, pin it.  Then you can find later to make. 

Many of these amazing stamp and other products are only available during this Holiday catalog.  They will be gone January 2, 2018!  

Tena Lynch used the Christmas Quilt Photopolymer Bundle for her swap card, I just love this sweet bundle of stamps and dies.  There are other coordinating products too! 
These are last-chance items, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 

Tena's fun fold card is similar to the fun fold I made for the swap, if you want measurements, you can see them HERE on my blog post for Painted Harvest Card Swap.  

This warm and cheery card is by Sherry Espinoza. She used the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and I believe she used the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies as well. 
These are last-chance items, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 


This sweet card came from Keri Young, I love it!  It's what pushed me to buy this stamp set.  It has so many fun images to share a cup of love during the holidays.  The Hug In A Mug stamp set is perfect for making tags for gifts from the heart (like hot chocolate and more), and sweet cards that are not just for the holidays.  
*This is a last-chance item, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 

Glenda Timkovich made this beautiful card using the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle (stamps & dies). The bundle (save 10% on the bundle) is only available during the Holiday catalog, but the stamp set and dies will carry over.
*This bundle is a last-chance item, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 

Look how fancy this card is, the window sheet adds a certain elegance, and the black and white is striking.  

Angela Zaba made this fun card using the Season Like Christmas stamp set and did you notice she used a piece of one of the Foil Snowflakes for the tree skirt?  What a fun idea, I've seen lots of different ways to use these beautiful snowflakes. 
These are last-chance items, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 

I love this card from Carn Meagher using the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions  Embossing Folder* (the name is so long, but sometimes I just call it the snowflake embossing folder) and Snowflake Sentiments stamp set (available in Clear or Wood mount).  You'll see this idea again because I CASEd this card at one of my December Holiday card classes. 
*This is a last-chance item, available while supplies last. After January 2, 2018, it will no longer be available. 

I love it when I get my cards back from a swap!  It's those fun treasures you see and think wow! Here are all the cards from this fun swap.  I've shared many of them already, but there's a few more that I'll post this coming week.  Enjoy!!

Wise Men from Afar Swap Card

More fun Holiday cards!!  Wow, I know how busy December always is, but it still surprises me.  I haven't posted ideas for a few days :(  Why?  It's been a busy week!  I won tickets to a private concert for the Lumineers here in Denver (so much fun!!! Thank you KBCO) and went to my neighborhoods annual cookie exchange.  With all the baking, working a full time job and social fun at the concert and Marietta's house I ran out of time in my day.  Do you have that problem too?  I love this time of year, but I find it hard to get all my fun crafting done, and then sharing it here on my blog.  One of my #6monthstampingoals is to do more with my blog.  What kind of goals do you have for the new year?

I just had to share this fun card from my friend Cindy Russell.  As a Stampin'Up! demonstrator I participate in organized card swaps.  We swap ideas when new catalogs are coming out so we all see more fun ideas to share.  I love it when I get my cards back from a swap!  It's those fun treasures you see and think wow!  This was one of those wow moments. 

At first I thought this was from the Night in Bethlehem set with coordinating dies, I guess I was so excited I just had to stop and look a little closer.  They are both beautiful sets!   
Cindy used the Wise Men from Afar stamp set (available in Clear or Wood), page 24. And the copper embossing powder is what really makes this card stand out to me. 
I love heat embossing, it's an easy way to add sparkle and depth to any project.  
Cindy used one of the washi tapes from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape pack, 5 rolls of copper, gold and silver washi fun!  It makes a nice finish for this beautifully elegant card.  
I really do not think the photos do this card justice, but I tried with lots of photos. Different times of day, different lighting, it might have helped. I did learn that copper emboss is hard to photograph.  

I love how Cindy used the Big Shot with the Circle Layering Framelit Dies to make the window and that this card has more of a book feel with the extra page so to speak. Did you see the circle of copper around the circle opening?  I believe this is the Copper Foil Sheets, which are a great way to add that extra touch to your projects.  It's all the details that just make this a great card.

This and other amazing stamp sets are only available during this Holiday catalog.  They will be gone January 2, 2018.

Here are all the cards from this fun swap.  I know I've shared some, so tomorrow see the rest of the Christmas cards and then Monday I'll share anything else I missed.  Enjoy!!

Holiday Card Class part 1

Here's the November card class again, this time with close up's of the cards.  This is part 1 of my holiday cards, there are 3 parts.  
2017 November 18th Holiday Card Class
The gray Snowflake card idea came from a Holiday Swap I did with friends, Marcia Winterstein made this fun idea.  And they were easy to put together!  

Snowflake card:  Smokey Slate and Whisper White, Year of Cheer Specialty DSP, foil snowflakes, Rhinestones, Gold Emboss, Gold cord, Circle Punch, Dimensionals. 
Stamp sets: Hug in a Mug and Better Together



The Z-fold card features the Cheers to the Year stamp set, and it's easy to make.  
Real Red and Whisper White card stock, Smoky Slate and Real Red inks, Rhinestones, Gently Falling Embossing Folder with Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Z-fold Card

  • 2 pieces of Real Red 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" for front and back of card.
  • Whisper White 3-1/2" x 11", scored at 2" and 6-1/2"

TIP:  I glue the back part of the white to the back of the card, then fold the white up and put glue on the front smaller section of white.  Line up the front card piece with the back piece and lay it on white inner piece.  Now your card should be lined up.



Merry & Bright card features the Festive Phrases stamp set and is a fun gift card holder.
Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler, Be Merry Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched Ribbon, Winks of Stella Glitter Brush, Stampin' Blender Pens with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler inks, Gently Falling Embossing Folder with Big Shot.

Christmas Card Class from November

Here are the cards from my November 18th card class.  I CASED one of these beautiful quick and easy cards from my friend Marcia, who is also a demonstrator.  
I also realized I have been so busy stamping I forgot to post! After that November class, I had 2 more classes in December!  So my challenge to myself is over the next 2 weeks I will share all the fun and beautiful ideas I have from holiday card swaps, convention and holiday card classes.  
2017 November 18th Holiday Card Class
The gray Snowflake card idea came from a Holiday Swap I did with friends, Marcia Winterstein made this fun idea.  And they were easy to put together!  The Real Red Z fold card features the Cheers to the Year stamp set, and the Merry & Bright card features the Festive Phrases stamp set and is a fun gift card holder.
