Merry Monday - Peaceful Pines...

Today's adorable holiday card uses the Peaceful Pines stamp set and coordinating Perfect Pines Framelits dies.  The colors on this card are Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Whisper White.  I used a little Red Glimmer Paper for the heart.   A bit of Linen Thread tied above the sentiment in a bow adds the perfect touch.  I used a piece of the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack (from the Holiday catalog) behind the cut out tree, but any fun pattern paper that coordinates would look fine.

Tasty Trucks...

Today's project is made with the Tasty Trucks stamp set from Sale-a-bration.  I've seen so many fun ideas with this stamp set:  UPS truck, ambulance, school bus, rv (from Breaking Bad), and much more.  You can't go wrong with a good all purpose stamp set.  My daughter Katie wants to have a food truck one day and call it the Iron Bun Eatery (long story on the name).  I'll be sure to save this set for that special day.

We made this card at Stamporee this year for a teen boy, but change out the colors and it could be used for anyone.

I used Smokey Slate, Emerald Envy and Watercolor Paper, along with the Watercolor Pencils and Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.

Merry Monday - Peace This Christmas...

Although the Holiday Catalogs are filled with lots of great new products, Stampin'Up! has added some holiday sets to the annual catalog.  Today's featured set is the Peace This Christmas stamp set.  I love the two sentiments in the set, plus the several coordinating images.  These three projects showcase this set and the coordinating This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (still available through May 31st).

This is a fun gift packaging idea using our Glassine Gift Bags.  

No special tools needed for this one.  Vanilla and Black card stock, DSP and Black twine and ink.  Great card for mass production!  

This fancy fold gift card holder is perfect for a special someone.  I used Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Silver Glimmer Paper.  This is the front.  

Opened just a touch, it stands on it's own.  

Here it is fully opened.  The gift card fits in the top pocket.  This card is super sparkly and lovely in person.
