County Living Holiday Collection Stampin’ Kit

The man in the brown truck just delivered this great Kit. I couldn’t believe how much stuff is included. A 6 piece die cut stamp set,Tombow Multi Glue, 3 stampin’ spots, white taffeta ribbon, silver elastic cording, clear rhinestones, dazzling diamonds, (whole container)dimenstionals, Whisper White craft ink, 4 sheets of chipboard, 8 pieces of DSP that is die cut for you & 4 pieces that are not and 2 sheets of Whisper White card stock. The cost of this kit is $49.95, but is well worth it. You have everything you need to make a whole bunch of ornaments, garlands, the possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to get started making these. Hopefully I will have some time this week-end. This kit will be available to order on November 1st through December 31st (or while supplies last), and Stampin’ Up will have a huge spread in Country Living Magazine ( item #114447) in the December issue. I almost forgot to mention, the Designer papers are so yummy! It’s so nice that we don’t have to cut out the DSP to put it on the chipboard. Stampin’ Up already did it for us. Yeah! I will start posting samples as soon as I get them done. I have a Holiday Stamp-a-Stack that I’m getting ready for on Sunday. You can click on each photo to get a better view. 

Sharon’s Christmas Tree Card

When I went to Patty’s meeting last month,(click on her name and check out her blog, she does some great stuff). Sharon showed us the cutest trees made from the Sizzix Pennant die, and showed us how to take the rhinestone brads out so you can use just the stone, so easy. On this card I cut the trees from the Holiday Treasures DSP, and cut out just the “joy” from the Join the Cheer Decorative Strip in Whisper White. You really can’t see it in the photo, but it really is there. I should mention that you use the small pennant and cut your DSP 1 1/2″ x 2″ and fold in half and put on the die. You can really make these trees what ever size you want by how you place your DSP. She had tall skinny trees, fat trees, all different sizes to make a small forest. I really fell in love with the trees no matter what size they are. I did make a large one, but I used some left over DSP from last year. I will be making more of these babies thats for sure!
