A FAVORITE...

I used these two stamps on my last post, and was inspired to make a second card. There are five additional stamps in this set that are equally fabulous. The Winter Wishes Stamp Set is destined to become one of my favorites...

SHOEBOX SWAP...

A Shoebox Swap is a fun cardmaking event attended by Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Wednesday evening, seven of us met, bringing seven cards packed in shoeboxes. For example, the first card below was made by Denise. The shoebox she brought had all the supplies for seven of that first card. Each of the shoeboxes were passed from person to person. When the evening was over, we had all made a card out of each box. Six of the cards are displayed here...

CARD SWAP...

Card Swap

CARD SWAPS are a fun part of any stamping event. For a card swap, each stamper makes a number of cards and then trades them with other stampers. Here are a few cards I recently received in a local swap.....

DAY ONE OF FIVE.....

HH Day 1

It happened on September 1st. You know... It was the day the Holiday Catalog was released! The mailman brought my catalog, so I calmly sat down with a cup of tea to begin thumbing through. As I turned the pages, it didn't take long to feel the magic and discover new, exciting products to add to my SUPPLIES TO ORDER LIST. One of those was the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper on page 47. One glance and I knew this was no ordinary DSP. You can feel the magic too!!

HH Day 1 -1

TAKE NOTE: Using the HO HO HO from the OH, WHAT FUN STAMP SET, I stamped upside down and backwards to say OH. Isn't that what you say when you see a ghost!!!

HH Day 1 -2

Snip, snip, snip with my Paper Snips for a creative twist...

HH Day 1 -3

 

SUPPLIES & ACCESSORIES: Oh, What Fun Stamp Set #140386-Photopolymer, Basic Black Cardstock #121045, Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650, Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper #139584, Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad #101406, Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes #107300.
