Christmas Photopolymer

Hi Everyone,

Stampin' Up has come up with yet another fantastic photopolymer set!  This time its a Christmas set and its my favorite one they have.  I thought I was close to getting my Christmas card set, but I might have to change it up to incorporate a stamp from this set. Of course I love all snowflake stamps and this set has 3 of them!

Thoughts & Prayers

Hi Everyone,

I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend last week and decided to use some fall colors for it.  I used our fantastic markers for the stamp so I could get the 2 colors on it.  I really really love our markers and use them often, even when I'm not working on cards.  They flow so smoothly for writing.  As a reminder, Stampin' Up is offering the newer colors in single markers so you don't have to get a full set if you are just missing the new colors.  This will only last until October 31st.

Supplies Used:  Thoughts & Prayers
Ink: Cajun Craze
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, So Saffron
Accessories: Stampin' Write Markers

Tags 4 You

Hi Everyone,
     While Stampin' Up is getting in the swing for Christmas, I am enjoying the fall colors and stamp sets.  Tags 4 You is quickly becoming one of my favorite stamp sets and I love the matching punch.  Stampin' Up is offering the stamp set and punch in a bundle to save 15%.  If you are looking for a quick and easy way to make gift tags, this may be the answer.  You can stamp the Holly Jolly stamp on one side and use the the to/from stamp on the other side. 
     The cards below are basically the same layout, I just changed the Designer Series Paper as the background.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Tags 4 You
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry
Card Stock:  Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla, Sweater Weather DSP
