One More 2008 Christmas Card

For these four 2008 cards, StampinUp supplies were used. I don't think the stamp set is retired yet. I really liked this stamp set. I think 2008 is the year when the IN COLORS included Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi. Great colors. I really liked those colors and still have some of the card stock. I used these colors in some of the 2008 cards. Wild Wasabi is part of SU's current color groups whereas the Purely Pomegranate was retired. I have a few more Christmas cards from my 2009 and 2010 SU monthly club and a couple more of my own 2010 creations which I will post at another time.

2008 Christmas Cards

I think I should have started off with the past years' cards and work up to the 2010 cards. It would be easier for you to follow. I will have to finish posting the rest of the pictures later. I haven't been regular in my posting since I created this blog and now I am bombarding you with bunches of stuff. Be patient and I hope you don't get bored. Would love to hear from you so leave me a comment. :)

More 2009 Christmas Cards

These two cards used StampinUp card stock and Basic Grey designer print paper. The ribbon was from my stash. I bought the JOY sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby and the PEACE,LOVE,JOY sentiment is a retired SU stamp.

2009 Christmas Cards

These are the 2009 Christmas cards I made. The majority of the supplies used are from StampinUp.

Catching Up for the Holidays

It has been so long since I have posted anything that I wasn't sure if I still knew how to post. I took a lot of pictures today. Current Christmas cards, Christmas cards from 2008 and 2009,pictures of projects I have completed in the past 3-4 years,and cards that I have made in a StampinUp monthly club for 2010 and 2009. I will try to give as much info as possible for each item. It will probably take a day or two to put all the pictures up. It's 5 days until Christmas and there's lots to do. May have to finish posting pictures after Jan 1.

The following picture is of this year's card. I waited too long and had to rush making them. I mailed them today. Had 20 on my list. The layout of the card was copied from GinaK's StampTV video named Metallic Enhancements. GinaK has fantastic video tutorials and I frequent her site quite often for ideas. See my sidebar and click to see her great site.

I used the following to make this card:
SU Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla Card Stock
Sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs
Rhinestones were colored with Copic marker R39 Garnet
Gold embossing: SU gold and detail gold
Nestibilities: Oval Petite, Scallop Oval Petite, Fancy Tags
