Christmas in September ~ this is a good time to plan the cards we’re going to make and send, that way we’ll be ready in plenty of time! Today I have a great card to show you. It’s easy and you can make lots of them in a flash!
Our stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus, is your best friend! In the video I will show you a technique to create the repeating pattern you see on the card.
You saw in the video the ready-to-use Foil Edged Cards & Envelopes. For making large numbers of cards these are a no brainer!
Do you have a Stamparatus? It will revolutionize your stamping experience! I love mine and, as you can see, I use it all the time!
If you have a Stamparatus — GET READY — because on October 1st we are going to have Stamparatus Accessories!!! That’s right, cute little grid sheets that fit perfectly, new clear plates and mats! Be watching for more news!
Look at the way those stamped images line up so perfectly! Really, it looks so professional doesn’t it?
Hope this gives you some ideas for your own holiday cards! Grab the Stamparatus now, before you start those cards!
Do you like banners? I do! I like tiny ones on cards, medium ones you could hang in your guest room or restroom :-), and large ones you can hang on your tree or fireplace! I like them all!
When I first saw page 8 of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, I fell in love with this cutie, so I set out to case it (copy and share everything)! This banner is what I would consider a medium-sized banner and I’m going to hang it in my craft room 🙂
You can make this easy banner by cutting strips of designer series paper 2-1/2″ wide x 4″ long. Then you just decorate your little strips! The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper has some really pretty plaids that are great for this banner.
The letters were cut with the Large Letters Framelits. If you don’t have these dies, I highly recommend you get them ~ they are so useful!
I’ve used these for birthdays and anniversaries ~ and banners!
My favorite thing about these cute little rectangles is the adorable doilies at the top of each piece. They are created using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies! This die set has a doily in it ~ love, love!! I got this die set JUST because of the doily die!! (Is that bad??)
The 3/16″ Braided Linen Thread is perfect for hanging this banner. And the color is very understated – it doesn’t compete with the pretty colors of the banner.
Well, it’s officially started ~ my holiday projects. I just can’t believe it’s almost October! Yikes! But, I have all these gorgeous papers and dies and stamps, and ribbons…and I like to get ahead of things, don’t you?
Thank you for stopping by today! Let me know what you think of today’s project, I love your comments!
Seriously, the designer series papers Stampin’ Up! has for the holidays are FABULOUS! Today I am featuring the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, along with the Falling for Leaves Stamp Set. They make a beautiful combination for all of your fall cards!
The two papers on this card are actually the front and back sides of one sheet of this paper. I LOVE the plaid 🙂

The red used in the paper and on my card is Cherry Cobbler. It’s a classic deep red and I love using it for the holidays!
Pretty Pointer: To give a sentiment a different look, trim closely around the words with your Paper Snips. The sentiment becomes much more versatile because it will fit in smaller spots! Try it!
Behind the sentiment you see a strip of our Chicken Wire Elements and some 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. I’ve actually pulled off a few layers of burlap from this strip to use on another project, so the strip you see here is not quite 5/8″.
A few Metallic Sequins and a bow of the Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine finish off the card.
And We Have A Winner!

And, thanks to all of you for leaving comments! I SO appreciate you!
Today’s card combines two of my favorites: the Love What You Do stamp set and the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper!
Who doesn’t love frosted everything? This card uses the Frosted Floral dsp, the Frosted Epoxy Droplets, the Pearlized Doilies, and a bit of Shimmer Paint on the sentiment piece! Wow!
You can’t really the Shimmer Paint, it’s hard to photograph. But it is there! The flowers here were stamped with Blackberry Bliss and then I pulled the ink to the center of the petals with an Aqua Painter.
