Christmas 2015

Welcome Back! Sorry to be gone so long but Christmas preparations bogged me down, plus I needed a card making break.

I'm back now with the November 2015 Paper Pumpkin. It was such a fun kit.

I was able to make 30 cards from this kit. The items I added are:
Whisper White card stock, extra Linen thread, Old Olive ink, and the pine bough stamp.

The first two cards are the ones made closest to package directions. Both cards have not as many pearls as suggested. The Joy card has one less holly sprig.

The next card is similar to the layout of the card above, but I didn't have anymore of the mistletoe. 
So I used a pine bough from an old Stampin' Up! set called Autumn Days. I stamped it in chocolate chip and outlined the pine with an old olive marker.

The next 2 cards are loosely based on cards I saw on Pinterest. I made the holly background paper with the enclosed stamp, I used extra old olive ink (which came in a previous paper pumpkin), and I used some of the extra red pearls.

With this card, and with the above one, I cut up the envelopes and used the cherry cobbler paper as backgrounds and the red striped paper comes from the inside of the envelopes.  (I just used white envelopes for mailing.)

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas cards. One of them might be coming to a mailbox close to you soon.
But which one ???

Remember, if you need any extra stamping supplies, check out the links above to take you to the Stampin' Up! website. There are many great end of year deals. If you would like to start receiving paper pumpkin, the link is on the right.

Have a wonderful Christmas season.
