At my last Stamp A Stack I designed cards using stamp sets and accessories from our Holiday catalog. I always try to feature a variety of styles as well as cards for different occasions.
Let's take a closer look at the cards I created for this Holiday stamp a stack.
The first card features my favorite stamp set in the Holiday Catalog called Cookie Cutter Christmas. There is so much you can do with this adorable set! For this first card I created an adorable Gingerbread Girl complete with a bow in her hair. You can stamp a bow and punch it out or just punch a bow from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.
The candy and sweet greeting comes from Candy Cane Christmas. I love the little starlight mint candies, they look good enough to eat.
The embossed frame is called the Pretty Paisley textured impressions folder. Its such a pretty frame and I know I will get lots of use of it well beyond the Holiday season for all types of cards.
The next card features the Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp set which is equally as adorable as the Christmas one. I just LOVE this happy Scarecrow. I fussy cut the crow and used a glue dot to attach him to the arm so just as the card says, he'd be dropping by to say hi. The Woodland textured impressions folder creates the fall perfect background for this friendly and fun card.
This card may look familiar because I created this card for my friend Linda's birthday a few weeks ago. I love it that I can use a set from the Holiday catalog to create birthday cards year round. I love the color combination of Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. These colors put together make for a very bright and colorful card which is perfect for celebrating a birthday!
The final card of my stack was this simple Christmas pines card. I didn't use the framelits that coordinate with this set but trust me they are gorgeous. The main reason I didn't use them on this card was because this was a stack class where each guest made multiple cards and I always like to keep things simple. Also if you were making this for your own Christmas card it is always less stressful to make a simple but elegant card that is easy to reproduce. I love it that the sentiment uses the word simple too. One of the things on my heart for this upcoming Holiday season is to simplify so I can enjoy every minute of my favorite time of the year.
My class was filled with happy and creative stampers like Shelly below. Just look what she did with her pretty pines card, she made PINEAPPLES. I LOVE Shelly's creation and you know me... pineapples are my favorite so you know I had to take a picture of Shelly and her creative use of this set.
Well, another stack is over and I am already prepping cards for the next one. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to create cards and share them with friends who come to stamp with me every month and then share them again with all of you.
I hope you liked these cards and are enjoying the newest products in our Holiday catalog as much as I am.
