Lest We Forget! Thank you to our fallen, our veterans and currently serving members for our freedom and our safety.
I was moved to tears listening to the innocent tell their war stories at my son’s school assembly this morning. Students who have immigrated to Canada from Iraq, Egypt and Afghanistan said, “Thank you Canada” for being a safe place to live without fear. Their stories are their own to tell, let me just say that I am incredibly thankful my children’s story is so vastly different from theirs. ❤️🇨🇦❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

I’ve Had the Most Wonderful TimeNote: The Stampin’ Up! products used in this post are identified in bold (with an item number) and are available through your demonstrator or by visiting our online store at www.stampinup.com. Be sure to select your country from the dropdown menu at the top of the screen for accurate pricing and availability.
I've been having the most wonderful time with a product medley that's just perfect for Christmas. The Most Wonderful Time Medley (item 150705) offers everything you need in one product bundle: stamp set, dies, stunning foil papers, embellishments, and stickers. There's plenty to keep you crafting happily for hours.
I started playing with this medley and decided to combine it with other stamp sets and dies to create something stepped up. I wanted Christmas cards that were perhaps more like keepsake cards for close friends and family.
The Christmas tree is most certainly the focal point in our house at Christmas. Always quite a sizable tree, it's a family tradition to decorate the tree together. I wanted a card, therefore, that focuses on the tree. The stunning Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon (item 152156) from the Christmastime is Here Suite (item 153947) beautifully holds this card together. The card was designed to be like opening a gift.
Adding a clean and simple internal card provides greater interest and the feel of something extra special. The internal sentiment came from the gorgeous So Many Stars Stamp Set (item 150496). I felt it followed on beautifully from the sentiment on the front that was heat embossed on Basic Black Cardstock.
The trees are simply stickers found in the product medley that I adhered inside while adding some dimension to the outside. Our Ice Stampin' Glitter (item 150445) really is your best friend if you want some full-on frosting. For yet more shimmer, I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects (item 150892) to adhere the glitter.
I hope you'll agree: This elegant gatefold card is something quite special.
I then wanted to create a simple square card that offered a handmade envelope to showcase the beautiful papers. Since I loved the deer stickers in the medley, I wanted to use a sheet of paper that tied in beautifully with them. By simply adding a covered triangular flap to a sleeve of cardstock, I created a wallet-style envelope.
I decided that I needed a peaceful sentiment, so I used the Peace & Happiness sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set (item 150513). The word “Peace” was taken from the So Many Stars Stamp Set used in the previous card. Some simple layering and a wash of Soft Sea Foam Ink (item 147102) behind the deer and a very simple card was lifted by the elegance of Gold Foil (item 132622) and a Gold Metallic threaded tassel that I also made.
I love the little image that I repeatedly stamped over the envelope. This, too, came from the So Many Stars Stamp Set. A simple image that I felt offered an elegant touch of detail to this otherwise simple envelope.
With unused papers offering presents, candy canes, and deeper green shades, I wanted to make something that was tailored more for a child.
A cheeky little image from the Elfie Stamp Set (item 150509) seemed perfectly fitting for the front of this card. I used the Stitched Shapes Dies (item 145372) for the layer and kept the theme of white, gold, and green. For this card, I introduced Real Red for a more playful feel. I used our fabulous Real Red Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (item 147935), Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (item144597), Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (item 147273), and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker (item 144606) to color the elf. Another Gold Shimmer Ribbon tie opens to reveal Santa's workshop inside.
The sentiment and the workshop elf both came from the Elfie Stamp Set. I think the hardest part of this card was deciding which color outfit the elf would wear . . . red or green?
I hope I’ve inspired you to get creative with this beautiful product medley with all its beautiful papers, accessories, and embellishments. There are many other sets that it can beautifully team up with and I hope I've shown you that.
So long for now! I want to play some more and see what else I can come up with!

Are you a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas or do you like to mix it up? ... See MoreSee Less
I love this! The cool colour and sparkle is so elegant.
I like to mix it up. I love the s hi ine!
We had our first real frost this morning here in Ottawa. The grass looked white! I thought it appropriate to pull out the First Frost stamp set and make some cards. First Frost is completely versatile. On this card I have used some die cuts to make a frosty, shimmery Christmas wreath.
If you live in Canada shop with me at www.Stamping.Cards and let me know if you would like to receive a catalogue. ... See MoreSee Less

I can’t get enough of this mercury glass designer acetate. I think it is just so pretty. It’s a rainy, gloomy day here therefore a little glitz and glimmer paper is in order. Of course, I find it impossible to just make one card. ... See MoreSee Less
Oh I've been debating whether to get this. Might well have to!
Simple Stamping is a way for beginner crafters/stampers to fall in love with stamping. Here is a card that simply uses stamps, ink, a punch and paper, along with bakers twine as an embellishment.

This card features the Sailing Home bundle from the annual catalogue and the stunning mercury glass acetate (150441), which is simply luxurious! It adds such flair and sparkle to your projects.
This card still needs a simple little sentiment but I think I will wait until just the perfect occasion before adhering one.
