Warm Winter Memories

100_8325

I love this stamp set - Warm Winter Wishes on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog.  I used the Petals a Plenty embossing folder for the background in Rich Razzleberry.  The Champagne Glimmer Paper is the perfect touch to add a little pizzazz to this card!  The little gold embossed snowflake is from the Jolly Bingo Bits set.

And how about that Cotton Ribbon?  I stamped right on it with Rich Razzleberry ink!  This was one of the cards at the CARD:SCRAP BUFEET last month. The next buffet is on Saturday, December 1st from 9am - 1pm in Menasha.  Pop me an email to register...we have a lot of fun!!!

Merry & Type

100_8306

Here's a beautiful card designed by my demonstrator Doris Fryman - so very talented.  She used the Merry & Type stamp set on page 13 of the big catalog.  The topper was made with the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die and Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper.  Doris used the Apothecary Accent Framelit to cut out the window and a red Sharpie marker to color her rhinestone!

Here's a fun Christmas card I designed for my swaps at the Stampin' Up! convention this summer...I almost forgot about it - EEK!  

I sponged White Craft Ink over the raised snowflakes - I just love that effect! The greeting is from Petite Pairs - another great stamp set!

Cards for our Troops!!!!

11111


CALLING ALL CARD MAKERS!!!!

 

From Our Hearts was started by a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in response to her son in the military who asked for a dozen handmade cards so he could mail them back home to his wife and children. It is non-profit, relies entirely on donations, and will remain in existence until the very last soldier has returned home from this war.

As of November 30, www.fromourhearts.info has mailed 82,409 handmade greeting cards to our military in Iraq and Afghanistan this year alone. These cards go to the Chaplains at many military bases and are offered at no charge to the soldiers for them to send to their loved ones back home. They are very much appreciated by both the sender and the receiver. (Normally, military bases have very plain, generic printed cards – if that.)

Take a few moments and read all the thank you responses on their website - there is a link below. Presently, they are very much in need of ♥VALENTINES ♥ for mailing out to the military bases on January 2.

Please find it in your heart to create one or more Valentines and drop them off at my home or mail them to me (738 Depere St, Menasha WI 54952) before December 8th, and my demonstrator - Doris Fryman will ship them to this organization the next day.

This organization also accepts monetary donations for their mailing costs, so – if you prefer – make a check out to From Our Hearts and I’ll include it with the cards. (You can also donate through PayPal online.)

Please create simple, well done Valentines (no glitter or scents allowed!) with ‘flat’ embellishments for anyone – wife, husband, mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, or friend. (U.S. Postal System has now decided to even charge our military personnel extra for "chunky mail" - shame on them!!!) If you have any questions, go to www.fromourhearts.info for more information.
