Peace on Earth

I think this Christmas card could also be used as a Happy New Year card.  I don't send many new year cards unless I discover that I forgot to send a Christmas card to someone.  I think this stamp set could also be used for some religious occasions, Baptism, Communion, or Confirmation.  I have one more card to show this week using this particular stamp set.

A Few More Trees


I have a few more Christmas cards that I haven't posted yet so I am going to stay in the Christmas mood.  This one doesn't have a complete card base on the front.  If you look at the top picture you may be able to see what I mean.

Merry Christmas

The title of this post says it all.  Merry Christmas to all my friends, family, and blog readers.

Lovely as a Tree

This is such an old stamp set but I use it a lot.  There are quite a few different stamps in the set and that makes it a versatile set.  I used this particular stamp several years ago on my family cards.  The card looked completely different than this one.  Can you tell I am trying my best to use up some designer paper?  I still have so much of it.

Pete the Penguin

My college mascot was the penguin so I love to make penguin punch art.  We actually had a penguin on campus and his name was Pete.  When sports for female students finally made it to campus the school feature Pete and Penney in the advertising.  They didn't get another penguin though.

Oh Christmas Tree

There was a new stamp set and punch in this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  I thought about getting it but put it off.  I waited so long that it went on back order.  I wasn't happy but then I remembered I had a tree die that I bought last year on the clearance rack.  Glad I didn't order the new one now.

Yellow Streaky Glass

The color of this piece is no where near what it is IRL. This looks almost orange to me but it is a yellow with sort of streaks through it.  Lots of bevels are what make the piece look nice.

A Doily Wreath

I saw this idea on pinterest.  It is the Hello Doily stamp that I used on the last card that I posted.  I had to try it to see if I could make it look like a wreath.  The center of the card is covered with a scalloped circle punch out.

Dasher on a Doily

The ladies in my card group love deer and Dasher in particular.  So every year we make at least one Christmas card using him.  They also like using the Hello Doily.  So when I saw a card like this one on splitcoast I thought it was the perfect card to share with them.  When they made it we used the eggplant paper for the base instead of white.  They like using non-traditional colors.
