Christmas Card Club

It's our first Christmas Card Club Challenge today. We've changed our running slightly in that if you don't have a stamp, die or punches for the theme then anything goes.  I've run with that as I don't have pixies, elves or gnomes at the moment and I've decided to share a handful of the beautiful handmade cards we received at Christmas.  These feature some current, retired and long term favourite stamps from Stampin' Up! notably the popular Lovely As A Tree in the card below with the fabulous single pine tree embossed in silver here by Sue W.   Robins are also popular and something that many UK demonstrators wish for every year in our winter catalogue, but our breed of Robin is apparently different to the USA.  Above Gina has used Christmas Pines still in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue to great effect. I love the embossing under the die cut leaves. 

Roz has made a simple but very effective Christmas Wreath using Painted Harvest which appeared in the Winter Stampin' Up! catalogue of 2017 and I'm delighted to say is now a carryover stamp set so still available.  Below I really like how Judy layered the pretty two step holly from Good Tidings over the beautiful frame and Christmas Greetings stamp from Father Christmas set in the Stampin Up annual catalogue. 

I will share more of my customer cards when anymore challenges arise that I don't have the images for so you might see yours at some point. 
If you want to get organised, dare I say it so soon, for Christmas 2018 then why not have a go at our fortnightly challenge which is just for fun and to share inspiration and ideas for festive designs in slow time over the year then please do and take a look at the other ladies via the link at the top of my home page.  

Happy Sunday all and best wishes for the week ahead.

Happy New Year and Happy New Stampin' Up! Catalogue

Stampin' Up! has launched the new spring catalogue today and you can view it by clicking here Stampin' Up! Spring Catalogue.  It is awesome and full to bursting with lots of fun, lively and seasonal products.  For my Happy new year card I've created an eclipse card using the Picture Perfect 6' x 6' designer series paper, the large number dies, new Tutti Fruitti adhesive backed sequins, glimmer paper and the Happy Birthday thinlit die.

Happy New Year to you and thank you for your ongoing visits to my blog and lovely comments.  I hope 2018 has started well for you and wish you health and happiness throughout the coming year.

For those of you who are familiar with Stampin' Up! you'll know that it is now Sale-a-bration time from today until 31 March which brings lots of excitement for demonstrators, party hosts and also everyone who is a customer as there are lots of bonuses on offer to us all.  You can visit my website to find out more at Zoe's online stampin up shop. 

I love the new designer papers on offer and the fun selection of stamp sets that have launched today.  Here is a sneak of what is waiting for you.

Enjoy browsing and if you would like a copy of the catalogue to browse and stroke please email me at with your name and address and I'll pop one in the post to you.

I'll be back soon with samples, tutorials and tips for more Stampin Up products.
