Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog Sneak Peak: Nailed It

I hope you  are as excited as I am to see this sneak peek of the new Nailed It stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. Card stock used:  White, Crumb Cake, Black, Basic Gray and Real Red.

I made the pocket by cutting a piece of 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Crumb Cake card stock and then cutting off the bottom corners.  I sponged the edges and drew in the dotted stitch lines using an Early Espresso marker.

Paint Chip Inspiration #38: Christmas Lights on a String

I had a lot of fun making this paint chip card.  I used the Balloon Bouquet punch to punch out the balloons and snip off the ends so they look like light bulbs.

Stampin With Scraps: Christmas Wreath

I think I've made this type of wreath card at least 5 different times over the years, but it never gets old because each time the DSP paper is different.  I used scraps from This Is Christmas Specialty DSP and punched out circles using 3/4" circle punch.  The background was done using the Hardwood background stamp set and the greeting is from the Hostess set Time of Year.
