Cards - Christmas & Winter

Happy New Year! Back to Blogging in 2018


 I hope you enjoyed your holiday celebrations with family and friends. Did you make new year's resolutions or set some goals for 2018? Post them in the comments if you would like to share them. My goal is to post lots of ideas on my blog this year.

In November I attended Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in Salt Lake City, where we received training on the new products available January 3, networked with other demonstrators and swapped stamped cards and other items. The above set of cards were ones I received in Salt Lake City.

They were all made with the Half Full Stamp Set that is in the soon-to-expire Holiday Catalog. The good news is that this stamp set will continue to be available after the catalog expires at midnight MT on January 2.

The Half Full Stamp Set is so much fun and very versatile. It is suitable for Christmas cards, but can be used for birthday cards when paired with a birthday stamp set. The above samples were made by (upper left) Candi Roberts, (lower left) Becky Hahn, and (right) Joan Eckert. The card on the lower left is a gift card holder as you can see from the inside:


This card was made using an 11" x 4 1/4" sheet of cardstock scored and folded at 2 3/8" and 5 1/2". A 1" Circle Punch was used to make the half circle cutout.

 Watch my blog on Wednesday; I will be posting a sample that uses some new products from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and Occasions catalog. This post will be part of a blog hop that features Sale-A-Bration products.
