Our theme for our Stamping to Share Downline Swap in September was "Anything Goes . . . as Long as it's the Holiday Catalog!" See the lovely creations below and I know that you, too, will be as inspired as I am by my Stamping to Share Downline group. Have a great day and a great weekend. I'll schedule part two to post tomorrow so stay tuned!!
Faith's card features the bundle that includes the Reason for the Season photopolymer stamp set with the coordinating Festive Flower Builder Punch. The white Poinsettia flowers lightly stamped with soft sky contrast beautifully with the leaves and the red background. The small pearls added an elegant touch.
Sue's card has a snowy background and a drift of snow at the base of trees that appears to sparkle in the moonlight. (Thank you glimmer paper!) She used the stamp set called Sheltering Tree by brought "in the new" with the sentiment from Wonderland.
Do you plan to be "Home for Christmas"? Who would want to be any where else, right? Linda's card has some fun with the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. Love the skating Santa on the right! And who can resist the Snow Place photopolymer stamp set? Cute snowmen abound with some great sentiments that will work well into January.
Mary Alice's card had us all oohing and ahhhing in amazement. YES it is all heat embossed. YES is is all cut out with the coordinating Leaflets framelit set. And YES, it is a work of art! Lighthearted Leaves do evoke a feeling of gratefulness . . . and I am so grateful that others have the patience I lack!! lol! A feast for the eyes for sure!
Mary's card also used the Lighthearted Leaves but in a more lighthearted way than Mary's card. Yes, Mary also heat embossed an yes, she also used the coordinating Leaflets die to cut out the leaves. But, the lighthearted feel comes from the stamping on the base card multiple times without reinking. I love the way it goes from strong to light . . . a beautiful whimsical touch. And of course the dots!! Just delightful . . . some of the dots are even glittered! Don't you love it?
Marlys created a tri-fold card that features an ornament from created with the Delicate Ornament Thinlit Dies. I love the glimmery details she added like the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and the shiny silver ribbon. The card is accented with the ornament paper that you can find in the Holiday Mini called Season of Cheer. It's a set of paper that will surly make you smile with bright colors and beautiful watercolor images.
Mychelle's card has all the things that make you shiver in the dark . . . bones and spiders and cobwebs!! Oh my, oh my! But how easily this all comes together when you use the bundle that features the stamp set called Howl-o-ween Treat with the coordinating framelits called Boo to You.
Dorene created a cute little favor . . . perfect to freshen your breath after that second cup of coffee! She created a tag with the stamp set called Oh, What Fun and then wrapped up a roll of mints with the Season of Cheer paper. Such a simple and thoughtful way to bring a little holiday cheer to your friends, or co-workers or family. I love this idea and all of the ideas my downline share so generously.
