Fancy Friday - Christmas Card Edition

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday (almost if you're reading this Thursday night, ha)!   It's time again for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  You are really going to want to hop along because we have added some amazing new friends and I'm so excited about it!  I mean did you SEE who's blog you just came from??????  If you didn't come from Teneal's blog, just keep clicking and you'll go all the way around.  If you're new to Fancy Friday, we are a group of current and past Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team members who get together to show you pretty things once a month!

This month's theme is Christmas cards which are my FAVORITE!  I whipped up a simple but fancy one design, I think.  These will go to my special people!

You guys!  I didn't even realize until I went to do my post, that little mini sequin snuck in there!  Oh my goodness!  How did I miss that editing?  And how did it stick on there?  It actually doesn't look half bad, does it?

Anyway, I wanted to make my background look like snow so I used my Shimmery Embossing Paste and just swiped it all over.  It's very sparkly in real life!  Once it was dry, I decided to try to stamp on it, and it worked!  For my sentiment, I inked up one of our Spectrum Pads in a festive combo!

Ok, don't judge my ugly reinkers ;-)  A few of them are OLD!  These pads are so fun, have you tried them?  See how the ink is spaced out?  They pull apart to store so they don't bleed and then when you want to stamp you just slide that little tab over and they scoot next to one another.  If you haven't given these a chance, you really need to!  So fun!

I finished it off with some fun accents including sequins (including that stow-away, I guess), shimmer ribbon (I think it looks so classy), and on of our All is Bright Paper Clips!  It's still fairly simple but looks so fancy!

Now you're off to see my fancy friend, Sue!  You will just love what she did!

Happy stamping!

Merry and BRIGHT

Hi stampers!  I have a bright little card for you today!  I just love this Nothing Sweeter set!  It's so cute!  I love that you can cut it out, but it makes cute and more simple cards, too!  This color combo is also fun and bright!

I may have mixed my reds here just a little with the poppy bow, but I think it still works!  Sadly, those shapes are sold out.  I also mixed and matched my sentiments and can't for the life of me, figure out which sets they were so you'll have to wing it :-)

I'm so excited I have a tree up (even though it's not done) so I can take my photos in front of it again!  I'm going to try to get our "big" tree up this year as well.  I'm toying with the idea of only putting half of it up so it lays flush with the wall...wish me luck on that ;-)

Happy stamping!

Be Jolly

Hi stampers!  Happy hump day!  The time until Christmas goes so fast, I'm not sure I'm happy the week is half over or not!  Anyone feel me?

I have a card to share today that may be one of my favorites of all time!  I just LOVE this bundle!  It's just quintessentially Christmas and so cute and jolly!

I used a sketch challenge I'd had pinned for my layout and I made that ho, ho, ho panel free hand so don't look too closely at it, lol!  IF I weren't a lazy stamper, I would have used my Stamperatus.  BUT, I think it's important to show that it doesn't look half bad without it for a quick and dirty panel! After it was stamped, I did take a sponge and just added a little bit of color towards the middle.  A few accents here and there and it was done.

I also really, really adore this color combination!

And you cannot deny that buffalo plaid makes anything better!

Happy stamping!
