The Jolliest Time of the Year!

Well it has been a busy week as you can tell.  I decided to make changes to the blog that reflect my personality and share in the season that I most love.  Not the weather mind you, already to cold and snowy for me, but the Christmas season.  For someone who lost their father this summer unexpectedly and tradition over the holidays are that much more important, I am still excited that Christmas is coming.  I look forward to baking of cookies, having friends over for dinner, preparing gifts, and seeing the joy and excitement on my children's faces when they open their presents.  All the while being creative and sharing that creativity with you.  Sort of like my Christmas present to you!

I also changed the name of my blog.  I wanted to identify myself differently from everyone else, that reflects the area I live in, and to make it extra special!  I will have to thank my friend Carolyne for helping me make some of these changes.  We have been friends for over 20 years now and she too has fallen in love with Stampin' Up! and frankly who hasn't.

I would really appreciate your comments on the changes and maybe even make more based on your feedback.  Thank you in advance for your comments.

This beautiful Christmas card, I have to admit, is not an original from me.  When I met with my group last week, we did swaps with other demonstrators, I was so impressed with this card I just had to share with you!  For those of you who don't know what a SWAP is, let me fill you in.  We demonstrators make a bunch of cards of one design and trade them with the others.  It let's us know what others are doing and a great way for inspiration for projects at home.  That is just one of the many benefits of being a demonstrator and part of a group of demos who really care about each other.

So onto the card tutorial,
  1. Cut the Ballet Blue CS into 4.25 " x 5.5"
  2. Cut the Night of Navy CS into 2.5" x 4.25"
  3. Cut the Whisper White CS into 2.25" x 2.75"
  4. On the Ballet Blue CS fold in half with our bone folder.  Using the 'Snow Swirled' stamp set use the Versamark ink pad and stamp the card stock.
  5. Use our Irridescent Ice Emboss and White Emboss powder on the images.  Use our heat gun to set the beautiful snowflakes with our emboss powders.
  6. On Whisper White CS stamp the snowman from the 'Jolliest Time of the Year' stamp set with the Ballet Blue Classic stamp pad.  Color the image with our Stampin' Write Markers in colors of only orange, black, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and finally in Glorious Green.
  7. Attach all components together using our double sided snail adhesive.
  8. Add our Organza Ribbon as shown on the card.
Quick, easy and beautiful.  I love that stamp set making this a gorgeous card to give family and friends this Christmas season.

To make this card and others, shop at my online store 24/7 for your convenience.

Have an awesome day and I will see you tomorrow!
