Recently, I made this gold-embossed Open Criss Cross card that lays flat in an envelope. By tucking the right side under the center image, I created a little stand up decoration. This was inspired by an open Criss Cross card on Pinterest (By "open" I mean it doesn't have a belly band.) by Linda Bauwin.

Sometimes you are feeling lazy, and this set is perfect for that! I just used the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Die with the pretty Holiday Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and Red Foil Sheets for a Simple but shiny Quick Card.

This card which we made at Class last week is in style a CASE of page 18 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I LOVE the offset gatefold design of that card, so I just had to make one. I used the more intricate of the curvy corner punch edges and filled the slot/ribbon slide punch with larger ribbon. Of course the colors and sentiments are different as well. I had to line the inside with a Very Vanilla layer that was larger than usual so that it would look pretty under the punched corners. That layer is 5-7/8" by 4-1/8".

Stampin' Addicts 2015 Stampin' Up! Winter Holiday catalog Blog Hop Cozy Christmas & Home for Christmas DSP
I'm using the Cozy Christmas Stamp Set and Home for Christmas DSP for my projects today.
"A Visit from St. Nicholas" definitely came to my mind for this card....."The moon on the crest of the new fallen snow, Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below;" (Attr: Clement C. Moore--Modern word choice.)
I hope you can see the sparkly Dazzling Details added to the trees, the horizon and house edges. This card was surprisingly quick to make and involved using marker to stamp for the house and trees, cutting out those images and tearing to each edge of the white paper for the snow. The moon is White Craft Ink dried with a heat tool, and the Sleigh is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. I also stamped the sentiment, "May the Magic of the Season Fill Your Heart and Home" on the inside. It think it fits with these two images especially well.
I like the idea of these retro images on tags too... I don't use brown kraft paper to wrap, so I find I need to use very few colors on my tags so they'll match my paper. They are simple and quick, and I could easily mass produce them. Am I kidding "quick" with the cutting? Nope, I find school pick up lines to be a great time for cutting out these little shapes.
Now, it is time to journey to Twila's Stamp A Little Longer Blog to see what cute things she's made with the Happy Scenes & framelits.... I love the curtains and wide range of her designs!!

Our Easel of the month for September will use the Howl-O-ween Treat set with the whimsical owl. This little witch has a bit more depth than it appears in the photo. It is so easy to pop up different pieces with the Boo To You Framelits. I especially liked using Black and Gold Glimmer paper for the wand. I used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch for a slightly different shaped Easel. We'll use each of the Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tapes though I cut the edge off of the Rich Razzleberry tape for a more pleasing design to my eye.

Hi again friends! You are welcome to join us as we hop through the fall themed items in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I loved the catalog this year! Should you get lost or need to see a list, here is the chat thread on Stampin' Addicts.
I know you enjoyed seeing Paula's beautifully detailed creations with the Witch's Night stamp set on Stampin' With Paula. Such fun designs!
I'm showing the Among the Branches set this time. It has a lot of possibility, and I've really enjoyed using it.
First is this Square Pillow box embossed with the Woodland textured embossing folder. I think this would be a fun holder for a hostess gift at Thanksgiving or for favors on each person's plate. I just added the Into the Woods Rich Razzleberry Ribbon and the Into the Woods Elements after stamping the Very Vanilla and adding a bit of Chocolate Chip to the tree trunks.
Next, I wanted to try a Halloween card with an unusual color scheme. Well, this ~really~ is different. I also think the yellow eyes are super creepy.
Then, I used the MOJO Monday sketch for this week, (MOJO 412) and cut down a spider web doily to a size I preferred by taking out the middle and overlapping the edges. (It was also necessary to fold the web before each fleur de lis point.) I love the effect that creates because the web doesn't stick flat...it is more wispy. There are 1/2 glue dots under each fleur de lis point. I colored three Jack O'Lanterns in the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper for added spookiness. :) A few rhinestone bling add a fun sparkle.
Now, it is time to hop over to Twila's Stamp A Little Longer blog to see her creations with the A Little Something set. Have fun, and we hope to see you on September 25 for the Winter Holiday Catalog Hop!

I'm going to use this card as one of my Alternative Christmas cards for my church. The charity I create cards for is Edmond Mobile Meals, so I thought this fit well with that idea. It was nice anc quick to make the snowy scene by just stamping twice and cutting along the horizon. Then I added a little snow to the trees. I did cut out the cars, but they are easy since there are several nice straight lines.
The Boughs and Berries Embossing Folder is slightly longer than we are accustomed, but it made a nice spot in which to put the greeting at the bottom on this regular 4.25" X 5.5" card.

For class this month, we made treat bags using that die and the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. I think it was a quick and cute project, and I usually don't just clothes pin things to hold them onto the main layer, so I tried a little weirdness there. I imagine a ton of possibilities for these treat bags....gift card holders, goodie bags or envelopes for cards....LOTS of choices.

This Fall Easel card is a combination of the hardwood background made into a fence with my attempt at a Sunflower with the petal from the Flower Fair Framelits. We always make cards for others, but I made this one for my desk at my part time job. :) You could use another sentiment of course. If you need a Get Well card, I think "Happy Healing" would look great.
