Pines and Poinsettias

What a fun weekend we had! We made cards on Saturday for an awesome Christmas workshop! We made three different cards and I had a fourth one ready to go, but we just plain ran out of time.  A couple of the ladies hadn't stamped before, so I had so much fun starting from the beginning and showing them how easy and fun stamping can be! They loved it!! I know they will be joining us again for the next one. What even makes it better, is that I put the order together last night and it's already heading our direction! WOW! That's a new record I think! FAST! Better yet, since I've moved to Elko, there's only one day that we have to wait for it!! YIPPEE!! I love it when UPS shows up to the door...especially if it's with a Stampin' Up! order. Here's another beautiful Christmas card:

Ingredients: Stamp Set Pines and Poinsettias, Season of Joy
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Crumb Cake
Accessories: Chocolate Chip marker, Always Artichoke marker, Cherry Cobbler marker, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Cherry Quilted Stain Ribbon, Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Extra Large Oval Punch, Snail adhesive, Dimensionals
The inside was stamped with the same pine cones as the front and inked with the markers. The front panel was scored with the Simply Scored Scoring tool at 1 1/4" intervals (the Very Vanilla card front measures 3 3/4" x  5"), then touched with the Crumb Cake ink pad for the direct to paper technique.  The cones and pine boughs remind me of the Black Hills and all those pine trees! These are the best kind though... they don't have to be raked up! Love this card!
Faith and I made paper snowflakes today and taped them to the window. I haven't made paper snowflakes for years! We stamped the Serene Snowflakes randomly over them in different colors of blue ink. What another fun project to do with a little one.
Get stamping time in today...even if it's to make paper snowflakes!
Happy Stampin'!
