Holiday Cards To Share

I’ve got the flu.  Fever, chills, aches…the works!  It’s been such a long time since I had the flu, I forgot what fun it is.  On the bright side,  Matt’s been the best ‘nurse’ ever and just went to get me rice and soup.  He even took pics and uploaded for me for this post!

Here are a few swaps I received from Rhea’s swap group this month.  So pretty I just had to share with you although I loaned a few out so they aren’t all here:

(All supplies Stampin’ Up!)


Stamped by Sharon Skelton. All Images copyright Stampin' Up!

Stamped by Sharon Skelton.   Stamp set:  Dasher

The base of the card is shimmery gold card stock and layered with Vanilla.  She embossed the greeting and Dasher with gold embossing powder.   She used Petals A Plenty embossing folder with the Oval resist technique.  (see technique here )   Then it looks like she sponged a little Champagne Shimmer Mist (from the Holiday Mini Catalog) on the flowers.

Stamped by Mary Hall.  Beautiful card!  Stamp Set is Scenic Season.  The base of the card is Whisper White and then layered with Shimmery Silver card stock that has been embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder.    The oval scallop frame (sizzix) is embossed with the same folder.  She embossed the trees with white powder on Navy card stock.  A little die cut snowflake and clear rhinestone brad finish it off!

Stamped by Sharon Burkert.  Stamp set is Berry Christmas from the Holiday Mini Catalog.   The base of the card is Whisper White and the Real Red card stock layer is embossed with Petals A Plenty.    There is a bird in that set also but saved the task of cutting it out by using the coordinating Sizzlet, Merry Details. (Holiday Mini Catalog)

Stamped by Denice Marshall.  Soft Suede, Vanilla and gold with a snippet of Soft Suede ribbon tied with gold cord.   Really a lovely, monochromatic card.

Stamped by Rhea Hughes.  Stamp Set  Autumn Splendor from the Holiday Mini Catalog.   I love the unique color combo here of Sage Shadow and Ruby Red with a bit of Chocolate Chip ink and ribbon, too.


Stamped by Kimberly Allen. All Images copyright Stampin' Up!

Stamped by Kimberly Allen.  Stamp set is Berry Christmas from the Holiday Mini Catalog.   Rich Razzleberry, Vanilla and Soft Suede are striking together!   The vanilla is shimmery and I think she rubbed the Frost White Shimmer paint on the edges and dotted the flowers on the embossed Razzleberry.


Stamped by Susan Gudmunson.   Stamp Set Dasher, stamped with Silver Encore ink on Night Of Navy card stock.   She used the Eyelet Border Punch on our Shimmer Silver card stock layer and White Organza ribbon with a Filigree Designer brad.    The greeting is stamped in Navy ink and punched with the Modern Label punch.

Well, that’s all for now – going to get another hit of Theraflu and hope it all goes away by tomorrow! Linda
