Water Color Christmas Kit - Expanded

Eight different cards instead of 4 different cards for a total of 40 cards from one kit Watercolor Christmas Card Kit plus a few extras from my stash.   This is all thanks to my fellow demonstrator Rachael Tessman of  Stampyourartout.com

Below is her video where she has done just that!  These creative "out of the box" ideas are super quick and easy and only take a few extra supplies.  She has done a wonderful job giving step by step instructions on how to do this.  Below the video I have listed the additional supplies I used to step up my cards even further for some added color and bling.

Here is a list of the items I used that are different from those Rachael used:

1.  I used 5 Emerald Envy card bases for one of the card styles

2.  I used 5 Real Red card bases for one of the card styles

3.  I added clear sequins instead of the gold sequins from the trim

4.  I added Nuvo Drops in various colors (clear sparkle and red sparkle) 

5.  I used a clear Glaze pen on some of the greetings to give them some shine (this could also be accomplished by using clear or black embossing powder)

6.  I used Diamond Glaze on a couple of the cards for some added sparkle

7.  I used Wink of Stella on a couple of the card

8.  I used a silver paint pen on one of the cards to make berries.

9.  I used a gold 3D Dimentional paint on the wreath card in place of the sequins from the trim.


These were all things I had on hand but you could use whatever you have or make the cards as Rachael has done in her fantastic video.

So if you need a LOT of Christmas cards quick - this is the kit for you!!!!

Oh Stampin UP - how did you know I have been searching for a die and stamp set like this!!!

The Graveyard Gate bundle consists of the Detailed Gate Die and the Graveyard Gate Stamp Set.  Obviously this is a Halloween bundle to give you a spooky look to your cards and decorations!  Take a look at this great set in this video - - - 

But what about using the gate stamps and die to create a card or scrapbook layout for Spring?  Yes I said spring....

Trade out the spooky colors of black, purple, and grey for a soft brown gate hiding a brightly colored flower garden behind.......  Do I have you thinking now?

This bundle is not just for Halloween - although it is a FANTASTIC set for Halloween!!!

Halloween Treats...


Everyone loves to give and receive a special treat. This can be something as simple as a sweet treat to eat or just a simple act of kindness with no strings attached... Let's spread some kindness in whatever way you choose this holiday season! Here is one way which is very economical and is that "Just a little somethin'" as we say in the South. These treat tubes first made an appearance at Stampin Up with a Paper Pumpkin kit last October. I just recently put my kit together this weekend. As I was making these I thought about seeing these in the Annual Catalog this year... While these are for Halloween, why not Christmas, New Years, Valentines, Easter or any number of other holidays through out the year. For that matter what about a "Just Because" gift. The October 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit and refill are still available to order. The kit gives you everything you need to make 16 cute tubes for $8. If they sell out, you can also order just the tubes from the Annual Catalog which is $5 for 12 tubes. Either way it is still an economical purchase... I have heard from fellow stamps that those in the Annual Catalog are a bit smaller than those in the Paper Pumpkin kit.

Fall items in the Holiday Catalog

This catalog is not just about all Christmas products - There are some fantastic fall products as well!!!  This is the Painted Autumn Suite!  The 2 step stamp sets are so easy to use and makes everything you stamp look like such art work!!  The corrdinating wooden elements for added pizzaz just makes projects and cards pop.  the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set with coordiating dies is a fund way to usher in fall.

If that is not enough - take a look at Spooky Night Suite. . . . 


The Desinger Series Paper alone is so fun.  It is double sided with Halloween on one side and generic patterns on the other side.  Who could resist those cats???  There is a coordinating punch to go with it!  Spooky Cat stamp set has some fun elements as well to use on your cards or Halloween treats!  Several other stamp sets including Graveyard Gate (coordinating Detailed Gate Die) and Creep It Real will answer all your alloween needs!  The gate die can be used in countless ways after Halloween as it is a beautiful ornate gate - for maybe a garden card in Spring....
