Here’s my first Christmas card for 2015! The Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA262) for this week is using Pool Party, Mint Macaron & Tip Top Taupe.  I used a new set, Cheer All Year, from the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog to stamp the tree. You can use the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies to cut out the tree. Pearl Basic Jewels were added to make the tree fancy.

The Pool Party piece is embossed with the new Softly Falling embossing folder.  It’s really pretty in real life!

My favorite ribbon of all time is the 2015-17 In color 1″ Dotted Lace Trim.  I have every color of this lace trim and use it often.  The matching envelope is made with the Mint Macaron stripes from the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

Christmas is in 137 days!  It’s time to start making Christmas cards and projects!

Blessings,

Some of my favorite swaps I received

I received many awesome swaps at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention and here are some of my favorites.  The first card is made by my good friend and downline, Jenny Waszak.  Her beautiful card is made using Watercolor Wings.  Aren’t those butterflies gorgeous!

Dreamia Toloso made this very cute Christmas card with Wondrous Wreath and the Brick Wall embossing folder.  It’s never too soon to start making Christmas cards!

Watercolor Words is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets.  This clean and simple card was made by Debi Calandrelle.  She even colored the Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers.

I can’t wait to show you more swap cards and more previews from the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog!

Blessings,

Beth

 

Cozy Christmas tag

I made this cute Christmas tag at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention. The stamp set, Cozy Christmas, will be available September 1, 2015.  The ribbon, Very Vanilla 1-1/4″ Subltle Stripes Satin Ribbon, and Home for Christmas Designer Buttons are both on page 9 of the new 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.

Here’s a picture of the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  You can see where I chose a Santa to cut out for my tag.  This paper is adorable!

It’s the perfect time to get started on your Christmas cards and tags!
