Get Your Santa On

This stamp set is such a hoot I couldn’t resist choosing it as today’s 2-4-Tuesday. Even the name of it is fun – Get Your Santa On!

And I admit for this first card there isn’t much originality as I so loved the design similar to this in the Holiday Catalog I just had to CASE it and make it mine. Thank you Stampin’ Up!

All is Calm when Quick and Easy

For today’s card the dry-embossed Filigree Frame in Coastal Cabana sitting on my desk was my starting point.

I was then determined to use the All is Calm Designer Washi Tape along with the Tree Punch. Silver Foil Stars left over from yesterday’s card along with a sentiment stamped in Coastal Cabana Classic Ink was added. A light sponge of Silver Metallic Ink was the final touch.

Time to think Christmas!

People often laugh at me when I say I’m beginning my Christmas cards in August but as we all know, once August rolls into September, times flies by. School begins, for us we have leave, there’s Halloween, then with Christmas preparations and parties, it’s Christmas!

Now, let me clarify something here, when I say I’m BEGINNING my Christmas cards what I’m saying is I’m designing and deciding what products I’ll use, noting how many cards are required and how I’ll “pose” the children this time. I’m not physically sitting down and making them although I do have intentions year of doing so, lol! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! released “A” stamp set last month to whet our appetites and get the old grey matter bubbling with ideas in readiness for the release of the holiday catty at the end of this month.  Here is the teaser set that’s available now…

Beauty of the Season

How beautiful is this set? It’s the perfect set for your Aqua Pens or even your Blendabilities. It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
