Christmas Cards

Good Morning Everyone! Here are a couple of Christmas
Cards that I created! The first is using the cutest little
snowman set I've ever seen. I love this set. It is a level two
hostess set featured in our Holiday Mini Catalog.
The "Christmas Greetings" is from the Grateful Greetings
stamp set, also from the Holiday Mini.

(interior sentiment from the Many Merry Messages set)

This little card is one I created to give with a bookstore
gift card. Take a look and let me know what you think!

I used the To The Nines DSP, the Circle Circus,
Short & Sweet and Christmas Punch (hostess) Stamp Sets.

The card has a perforated edge so that the bookmark can
be torn off easily. Use the perforating tool for this -
found in the Cutter Kit on pg. 191 of the IBC.

Supplies Needed:
12x12 sheet of cardstock (less waste & gives you two cards)
Stampin’ Up! Cutter Kit (for perforating tool)
Desired Embellishments and Stamps

Start with at 6 x 8 ¾ sheet of cardstock.

Score at 3 ½ and perforate at 7 inches

Embellish to your liking and use with no. 6 ¾ envelopes found
at the office store. Great for the readers on your Christmas list –
just include a bookstore gift card and you’re done! It also makes
a nice little Christmas card for members of your book club or reader friends.

Card Swaps!

As a demonstrator, I attend meetings with others where
we share ideas, make projects and participate in card swaps.
Last night was our Christmas meeting and I got some
incredible inspiration from these awesome ladies!!
I wanted to share a few swaps with you...
. .. more to come tomorrow!

Each of these swaps used a technique new to me! You
will notice that the paper used has a super sparkling sheen to it.
Well, this was done using two ounces of Rubbing Alcohol
mixed with 15 drops of Champagne Mist or
Frost White Shimmer paint featured in the Holiday Mini.
Put the ingredients in a spray bottle and mist your
cardstock to create this effect.

Big Shot Special!

I'm sure that many of you have noticed that I use my Big Shot for a lot of my projects. I love the cute little boxes I can create, the textured papers I can use on my card projects and the exclusive dies that coordinate so well with my other beloved Stampin' Up products! Well, I'm offering a holiday special to you from November 1, 2009 through December 15, 2009. Purchase a Big Shot Machine and I will give you any die in our IBC up to a $21.95 value for FREE as a thank you! This not a Stampin' Up promotion, and is only available through me.

Thinking about making the purchase?
Read on for more information on this awesome product!

You'll love what the Big Shot machine, a 6-time winner of Creating Keepsakes Reader's Choice Award for best die cutting equipment and dies, can do for you. The Big Shot is a sturdy manual die cutting machine used to die cut materials for use on crafts, home décor projects, and even clothing--it's a big deal!

Here are some posts featuring some of what you can create with your Big Shot:

How does the Big Shot work?
Using steel-ruled and chemically-etched dies, the Big Shot cuts out images by passing card stock and other materials through rollers that utilize pressure to cut through the materials. With just a couple turns of the handle, you’ll be able to cut through a wide variety of materials. The Big Shot also comes with special cutting pads and a cutting platform that not only make the Big Shot safer and easier to use, but also lengthen the life of the product.
