Holidays are a Bear

but I like them...

Today I am sharing some cards made at camp. My upline, Susan Smith gets the creative credit for the cards. I've not had much time to create, perhaps later today...

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Welcome Christmas Into Your Heart

The Christmas Season has begun and I am going to be posting several Christmas cards from my card classes and camps. Susan Smith is my upline StampinUp demonstrator and gets the credit for this awesome card design. I love the music notes wheel, and the use of the ornament punch is great. Two different greens used here, Certainly Celery and Old Olive.
This cards really represents the spirit of the season, family, love, and being together.
I pray those things for you.

Isn't this card awesome? All StampinUp products were used in the creation of the card. The card base is Early Espresso as is the watermark background. The leaf images come from Stampin Up's Autumn Splendor stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso and Versamark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used a brayer for the multi-colored decorative image portion of the card by using glossy white paper with Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and More Mustard. After braying the decorative background, I wiped off the image to ensure the leaves were clear and crisp. A corner round was used on the right side of all the layers. The stamped image was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock, added a cute little brad the pop the image and adhere a small piece of the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon in the new Holiday Mini.

Just a little blurb about the Seam Binding Ribbon....if you are ribbon challenged like me, this ribbon was made for you!!! It is very light and flexible, easy to maneuver, tie, loop, etc. It comes in three colors, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Always Artichoke. It is currently available in the Holiday Mini which expires on January 2, 2011, get it while you can, it is the bomb!

Hope you enjoyed today's post! If you are interested in purchasing any of these products, please contact me as I am a NEW Stampin Up Demonstrator and would love to help you create this fabulous card!
