Stampin' Dreams - Christmas Blog Hop

Time for another Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the world who participate each month to share projects we are working on.  This month our theme is Christmas.  My card features a few products that are retiring from the current Stampin' Up! September to December Mini Catalogue.  Time to grab them before they are gone!

I created this card on a recent Sketch Challenge using the Stampin' Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set.  In addition, I used an embossing folder from the Charming Landscapes Pack, a Wonderful Snowflake and DSP from the Sweetest Christmas.  I love how this card turned out.  

Here's the sketch I was working from.

Every Tuesday night I share a sketch and make a card at 6:30pm Pacific.  You can join me on Facebook in my group or on my page or via my YouTube Channel.

Now, here's the card.  Isn't this pretty!  I deconstructed the sentiment and adhered them back together.  I love this!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Real Red cardstock 2" x 4" and emboss using Charming Landscapes Embossing Folder
  3. Use Sponge Dauber and add Kraft Whisper White ink to embossed image.
