Color Me Christmas for a happy card

I love a well-dressed reindeer! This little guy from the Color Me Christmas stamp set (page 32 of the Holiday Catalog) is just so cute. I used a blender pen and ink pads to add color.

I started with a Wild Wasabi card and added strips of Cherry Cobbler card stock (embossed with the Stylish Stripes folder - item 132174, $7.95) and Season of Style paper stack (item 132181, $6.95). The sentiment is stamped on Baked Brown Sugar card stock. I CASE'd this card from fellow SU! demo Nicole Tugrul.
As you know, Black Friday is upon us. I avoid stores at all cost since I don't like the crowds and craziness, and you can too. Stampin' Up! is having some wonderful deals on great products - and will be adding a couple more online for Cyber Monday - when you can get all kinds of specials when ordering online. Here are the current SU! specials:
Weekly Deals (good thru Monday)
You may order anytime day or night via my Online Store at I'll enter you into my December 1 drawing for free SU! product of your choice.
Note: Starting December 1, when you place an online order with me, you'll need to have the hostess code or you won't be entered into my drawing. I've been able to add it for those of you who forget - but no more as of Dec. 1. Some demos have been abusing the system, so it's up to you! If you do forget, you can always contact Stampin' Up! to have demo support add the hostess code, since I won't be able to do it. Thanks!

    Snow Day joy

    Oh my, this snowman looks so joyful! You can see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter making him shine.

    This Pool Party card opens a bit differently - at the top with a flap - making it easy to add a gift card inside, or just a holiday message. The front of the card was embossed with the Northern Flurry folder (item 120902, $7.95). The snowman is layered on Brushed Silver card stock for added shine. I used a Basic Black marker for his arms and smile, and a Tangerine Tango marker for his nose. I CASE'd this card from SU! demo Dawn Griffith.

    Heads up: If you are a regular customer or club member of mine, be on the lookout for the upcoming Occasions Catalog, as well as the Salebration Catalog.

    Our Holiday Sale is still going on - till December 2! Save 20-50% on a variety of items. Best of all, when you order via my Online Store at, you'll automatically be entered into my December 1 drawing for all of the hostess benefits (i.e. FREE STUFF!). Have a wonderful Monday!

    A gift card holder makes Santa's List so much easier!

    I like the Santa from the Santa's List stamp set simply inked in one color. It makes creating a card or gift card holder quick and easy. The sentiment also comes in the set (Holiday Catalog, item 131811 clear $12.95 or wood 131808, $15.95).

    I used the Circles Collection framelits and the Oval Accent Bigz Clear die (item 127005, $21.95) with the Big Shot, along with a couple of Basics glimmer brads. Gotta have bling!

    The brad on the left holds the gift card holder together and provides a hinge of sorts. Inside, I used a half piece of the oval accent die as a pocket, securing it at the bottom with mini glue dots. Then slide in your gift card and you've got a great stocking stuff or gift - and it fits in a SU! envelope (or you can make your own envelope!). I CASE'd this idea from fellow SU! demo Cathy Autrey, and all of my club members got to make it this month.

    If you'd like to take advantage of the Holiday Sale going on right now, as well as the Clearance Rack items and any other SU! products you see, please order thru my Online Store at and you'll be entered into my December 1 drawing for FREE SU! product. No code necessary!

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    My home is filled with JOY

    Happy Wednesday! I finally got a chance to take some photos of my Christmas banner. I had a class Saturday where the ladies could choose to either make a "Joy" banner or one that said "Noel." Thanks to my BFF Kim, I had stencils on both sides of the long row of tables so each person had a place to sit and work on one letter at a time. It was fun!

    With the Build a Banner kit, you get lots of canvas flags, so I was able to make two banners Saturday. I think I'll make at least one more. I think they'll make fabulous gifts for a couple of special people I have in mind. Though you only get one string of jute, I used retired 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon for my banners - and I think it looks great!

    Turn your computer sideways. This photo and the next flipped for some reason! You can see how I put a rosette on the flag (I used Sticky Strip), then used Stampin' Dimensionals to add the patterned paper circle to the rosette and the faceted button to that. Each faceted button has a large rhinestone inside. You can never have enough bling on a holiday banner!

    Three fabulously glittery snowflakes come in each Christmas banner accessories kit, so I used the two big ones between the letters and the smallest at the end.

    I cut the lengths of ribbon into four pieces each and tied them in knots. The snowflakes are hanging from the 1/8" silver ribbon. Love it!
    Of course you can make your banner say whatever you want and use it for holidays, birthdays, or any special event. To order, please use my Online Store at Each month I'm giving away the hostess freebies to one lucky winner of my random drawing. All you have to do is place an Online Order and your name goes into the drawing! Thanks.
