I’m not going to lie, this Christmas Pines Stamp Set has got to be one of my favorite Christmas carry-overs in the Annual Catalog. That background stamp of stars is simply glorious and the thinlets – WOW!
The Christmas Pines Stamp Set with a total of 22 photopolymer stamps, many of which could be used for things other that Christmas, is on page 96 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. The matching Pretty Pines Thinlets are on page 219.
There are endless possibilities with the Christmas Pines Stamp Set and Pretty Pines Thinlets both for Christmas and other times of the year. A worthwhile addition to your stash if you don’t already have them!
Rearranging my “stash” is the equivalent of buying new stuff. Product that has inadvertently been pushed to the back is suddenly front and centre once again.
Such was the case with this Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. It might be sooo last season but I love that grunge-feel it has about it as you can see below.
The Swirly Scribbles Die-Cuts are currently a favourite of mine. In this instance I’ve covered the die-cut with Crystal Effect to give it some depth and character. Plus I finally used the SAB2017 Delicate Details Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s just like having new stuff!
This card was created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307. I’m so, so grateful for the wonderful “kick-starts” they give me each week. This is their current sketch.
Slowly but surely I’m getting my groove back. This is fortunate since we are now in October – it’s almost Christmas! Have you all the supplies you need for your Christmas creations yet?
My good intentions for completing one or two cards during the week, at my leisure, are once again out the window as here it is Sunday afternoon with the clock ticking. Therefore without further ado, this is my card.
