Out with the Old In with the New ---Masculine Birthday

Welcome to this month's blog hop for the Remarkably Create Team!
 This month's theme is Out with the Old and in with the New!


We are finishing off the Holiday Catalog and getting ready to start our brand new Occasions catalog along with the Awesome Sale-A-Bration event too!  You know what that is right?!  For every $50 you spend on product during Sale-A-Bration you get to choose an item of your choice from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!  The best time of the Stampin Up! year.  So that was the goal -- to mix up the Holiday Catalog with the New Catalogs.  I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend who is a hunter and thought this would be the time to create it!  I actually used products from the Holiday Catalog--the Sale-A-Bration Catalog--- the Spring Catalog and the Annual Catalog too!  Here is my sample.....


and here is the inside of the card...


The Holiday Catalog is still available until Jan. 3rd.  
The products I used from there are the 


From the Occasions Catalog I used the ...
From the Annual Catalog I used....

and then the sentiment Happy Birthday comes from a Sale-A-Bration Stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed my sample for today's blog hop! The next stop on the hop is  Deanna Pavinato! She always has great designs to share.  Be sure to keep on hopping along to see the rest of the extremely talented ladies and see what they created for you!  Here is the list of blogs participating .....

Happy Birthday Sale-A-Bration style!

YES!!
It is almost that time of year!
Time for the Sale-A-bration Event at Stampin Up!
You remember this one right?
For every $50 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-bration Catalog!
Lots of great choices this year--can't wait until you see them.
If you need a catalog let me know I would be happy to send you one along with the new Occasions Catalog too--they are both wonderful!

So here was the first card I made with the new supplies.
A fun birthday card.


And of course the inside of the card....



This Festive Birthday paper is so fun, I love the colors.  Coordinating colors: Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White  And the stamps are from a stamp set that you can earn for free called Designer Tee--it matches the tee shirt stamp in the annual catalog. 

Well, I am off to do a funeral luncheon at my church 😩😩
Thanks for stopping by..see you soon!

Merry Christmas!

Well, all that for one day!  Merry Christmas to you--I pray that you and your family have a fabulous and blessed day and that you have an amazing New Year too!  I just wrapped my last gift, lol.  I am always so last minute--I actually ran out of wrapping paper and re-used a piece from a big present that my son got for the last small gift for my mom.   Here is the last Christmas card I will share this year.





I am running late for meeting with my family so this is a quick post.  This is using the stamp set that come out last year with the matching dies--Wonderous Wreath.  Love it and so glad it was still current this year.  The rest of the supplies are listed below.
Merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth--would that not be the MOST incredible thing EVER!?

A still have a few more Christmas designs to share before moving on to other stuff.  Here is one I designed for the Case this Sketch challenge #202.  These are usually the type of cards that are hard for me--not too many layers or items but the ombre color scheme was fun to play with.  Pluss I got a Bermuda Bay Ombre Stamp pad from my friend and upline Janet Morrow Wakeland so I had to try it out finally!  Love it with the Wonder of Christmas Set.





Are you ready for the Christmas yet---I am so close but not quite done.  So I best get going and get some more stuff done.  Thanks for stopping by--the supplies used for this card are below.

Christmas Blessings

I absolutely love the font on this sentiment--and the sentiment too.  It is from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set!  Love it--and it has coordinating thinlits too!  Together it is so easy to make quick and beautiful Christmas cards--after Christmas this set will be great for masculine birthdays.  Can't wait to make on to see how it comes out--maybe later today.


here is the inside of the card...


I used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for my inspiration--here is the sketch--CCMC437


Fun sketch--been a long time since I stamped with my friends from there!  Happy to be back at it.

Thanks for stopping by again today!

Wonder of Christmas--Joy to the World

So I finally got a bit of my stuff set up--at least the new stuff!  I know that it is a little bit late but I finally got a few Christmas cards made!  I am so excited to start sharing with you guys again.  Today's card is using the stamp set Wonder of Christmas, I love this sweet angel!  I used colored pencils and blender pens to color her!  It has been so long since I did this I forgot how fun coloring is.


I used a new to me sketch challenge for this and all the cards I made tonight.  The sketch number 26 of the Paper Play Sketches.  Here is the sketch for you to check out.


You might have to enlarge my card to see the rhinestone embellishments that are on the top right and lower left.  I thought this was a really cute sketch and it was perfect for this set!  Here is the inside of my card....


It felt so good to create today--I hope you enjoyed the design.

See you soon with more Christmas cards!
