Let's start the week off with some Stampin' Up! Christmas Card ideas! One of my local stamp clubs create and swap cards each month and this month's theme is Christmas!
Let's take a look...
Penny created a beautiful card in non-traditional Christmas colors using the retired Snow Swirled from Stampin' Up! I've known Penny for many years through her giving countless hours of her time in the Parent Teacher Association and we worked together in our local school district.
School colors? Purple and white!
This precious card was created by Beverly using Happy Hour (wood, clear) from the Stampin' Up Annual Catalog. The detail on this card is amazing! Look at that tiny candy cane! Each red stripe is glittered!
Beverly is relatively new to our Stamp Club but is by no means new to the paper crafting world. Previously, she owned a local scrapbooking store and is a scrapbooking queen! Beverly loves to travel and we look forward to hearing of those adventures each month.
This landscape Christmas card is so elegant in black and white. The red border really makes the image pop. This beautiful main image and sentiment from this retired set from Stampin' Up! is embossed. Love it!
Debbie is a long time friend (from high school!) and a long time stamp club member. She has a passion for stamping and paper crafting and loves sharing her creations with others. Debbie is the coordinator of our stamp club swap. We appreciate her!
Latricia used the darling Santa image from Best of Christmas stamp set (134384). I love it in the scallop punch as the focal point of her card.
About six years ago, Latricia called me after conducting a search for a local demo through Stampin' Up! As it turns out, her home is a few blocks away from mine! Latricia has been a member of stamp club ever since. She is full of fun with a vivacious personality...love her!
Alicia is another stamper who called after searching the internet for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Alicia's talent for watercolor and passion for mixed media is evident in her creation. Love her use of Gorgeous Grunge (wood, clear). The texture and dimension on this card is amazing!
Alicia is a former member of my downline and has a passion for crafting. She is pure sweetness and loves sharing her ideas and techniques with us. She is a dear friend.
Hope you've enjoyed these Christmas card ideas from some of my club members...
Now, here's a glimpse at a few candid shots I took at club yesterday afternoon.
Sweet Rachel...I met her at scrapbooking crop about 8 years ago. Talented, helpful, and precious! Rachel drives 45+ miles (each way) to Stamp Club each month and her mom, Sue, is also a member.
Here's our Beverly telling us about her adventure in Times Square on New Year's Eve!
Stamping AND relationships...that's the heart of Stampin' Up!
Whether you're local or across the country, I enjoy getting to know my fellow stampers through phone conversations and if you're there, on Facebook. Join me there or give me a call, or email me and let me know how I can help you.
