For my card sentiment I used one of the phrases from One Big Meaning (wood mount or clear mount), a set of various ways to say thank you… you can never have too many! 🙂
With Stampin’ Up!’s designer paper you never have to guess what colors will coordinate because it’s listed right on the package. I pulled the Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy colors from the patterns to use for my ink colors.
Below is my color combo:
Make your own handmade thank you cards using the beautiful Moroccan Suite of products.
I have just a quick question for you. Respond with a comment to this post, and if I receive enough comments you will be entered into a drawing for a free stamp set of your choice from my Retired Rubber Stamps page!
PLEASE NOTE: I will need to have at least 20 different people leave comments to hold the drawing.
While I’d love for my international readers to participate — please do! — I can only send stamp sets to those living in the U.S. Sorry!
So, my question is:When is your favorite time to make Christmas cards?
Please leave a comment with your answer. If there’s enough participation I will do the drawing on Saturday, August 13th at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
Paper Pumpkin craft is a wonderful way to fit a bit of creativity into your life each month. A surprise gift you can give to yourself, you never know what will be in the kit. And you’ll be using the exclusive stamp set and ink pad that are included long after you’ve completed the projects.
You can join just for a month to test it out, or you can sign up as a subscription. If you need to you can suspend your subscription for a month, and you can cancel at any time… it’s completely up to you! And you won’t be charged until your kit ships.
Here’s a look at what was included in the July 2016 Paper Pumpkin craft kit-of-the-month.
Be sure and sign up before the 10th of August to receive your very own personal Paper Pumpkin craft getaway next month. Finally, you’ll have something to look forward to in the mail besides bills! 🙂
If you live in the Western Washington area you’ll want to mark your calendar for my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack. More details will follow soon. Space will be limited, so stay tuned for a special offer!
I like the neutral color palette. And the card is so simple to create, it’s perfect if you’re looking for one design to send out to a lot of people. And with the variety of Christmas card sentiments included in the set that you can mix and match, they can all still be unique!
It’s really not too soon to get a jump on making those holiday cards. Let’s make this be the year you get them done! Let me know how I can be of help.
We’re taking a break this week on Christmas Card Sunday from rubber stamping Christmas cards. It is summer, after all, and our hiatus this week is because the Christmas Card Sunday crew is on vacation. It seems they ran off to Paris without me!
This card was inspired by a couple of cute “selfie” cards I saw by Amy Lee on Splitcoast that reminded me of the Polaroid cards I used to make (you can see one here). The selfie/Polaroid cards haven’t changed, but I thought the theme of being out and about was very clever.
The “crew” of course is from Snow Place, which is still available for all of your holiday (or vacation – lol!) cards. The card sentiment was made using the Brushwork Alphabet… love it!

You’ve heard me rave about them. Well, today they’re having a sale on my favorite storage solution for thinlits and framelits. If you need a better way to organize your framelits and thinlits you won’t want to miss it!
Today’s Christmas Card Sunday project is pretty simple. I combined a background texture image from Touches of Texture (wood-mount or clear-mount) with a few word images from the retired Joyful Season, which you can find for sale on my Retired Rubber Stamps page.
I found these Mini Jingle Bells in my retired stash, so I thought I’d add a few to this week’s holiday card. I threaded some Linen Thread through them before tying a bow and attaching them to the card front. Don’t they just make you smile?
The color combo I used for this Christmas card making idea is shown below.
I pulled out my Heat & Stick Powder today. I don’t think I’ve used that in years! And it showed, too, it was all lumpy. 🙂 But it still works fine.
For today’s Christmas Card Sunday project I used the tree and snowflakes from Sheltering Tree, along with a greeting from the retired stamp set Greetings of the Season, which you can find on my Retired Rubber Stamps page.
The trick for Heat & Stick Powder is to heat it from underneath to melt, and then apply your glitter. Super simple!
You’ll find the color combination used on today’s Christmas Card Sunday project below.
