I cannot believe that Christmas is around the corner so I decided to get started in getting into the spirit! The first card I did is one of my favorite stamp sets from our main catalog, Peaceful Pines. The card base is Mint Macaron and I chose one of the stamped trees with the same ink. I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock with the Softly Falling embossing folder. I used the Merriest Wishes sentiment from the set Christmas Magic. Of course I could not go without adding some bling.
The second card is with the same set, Peaceful Pines but using it in a different way. I cut a piece of Whisper white to 4 ¼ by 11 and scored at 5 ½ then turned it to landscape so that the card opened from right to left. I stamped 3 trees with Garden Green and cut them out with the Framelits. Then I cut two pieces of card stock for the hills using Crumb Cake. I then cut 3 stars with our Framelit on a piece of Red Glimmer Paper. Using the snowflake provided in the set I stamped using Marina Mist. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red. I also used “Wishing a season of wonderful moments and warm memories” and stamped with Real Red inside the card and also stamped a few snowflakes in Marina Mist.

I am so excited for fall so I decided to create a couple of cards to welcome the cooler weather. I started with Stampin’ Ups Totally Trees stamp set out of our new Holiday Catalog. I love this stamp set with all of the different tress that you can make out of this set.
For the first card I used Bermuda Bay card stock and cut this to 5 ½ x 8 ½ scoring this in half at 4 ¼. Next layer was Sweet Sugar Plum cutting this to 4 ½ by 3 and then the top layer using Whisper White 4 ¼ x 2 7/8. Using two different trees I stamped the tree base using Early Espresso and the tree colors are Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay.
I embossed the base card only putting in ½ of the card to create this effect using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
On the inside I cut a piece of Whisper White to 5 1/4 x 4 and stamped the inside using one of the trees on the right bottom corner
The second card I used traditional colors for the card and using only one tree. Cutting a piece of Whisper White for the card base to 4 ¼ by 11 and scoring at 5 ½. The second layer was a piece of the DSP out of the Holiday Catalog called Halloween Night cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 I like this paper due to it is has a lot of the fall colors in it. The final layer is cut to 5 x 3 ¾ which is Whisper White.
I stamped the tree base in Early Espresso and used Pumpkin Pie, Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry for the trees and cut a piece of Emerald Envy for 4 ¼ by 7/8. Embossed the sentiment using our gold embossing powder. Of course I stamped a tree inside of the card on the bottom right.
