Today’s card features one of my favorite Christmas stamps – the tree from the retired Snow Swirled set. I combined it with a sentiment from the Endless Wishes set to come up with this holiday card:
Snow Swirled Christmas Tree on Kraft Wrapping Paper
- Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar, and Very Vanilla combine for a very soft, natural look.
- Heat embossing the tree highlights the swirls and elegance of this set.
- Note the background paper behind the tree – it’s the Kraft wrapping paper featured in the holiday mini.
- Small pearls accentuate the swirls on the tree and snowflake.
The inside of the card is very simple:
Snow Swirled Card – Inside
- Retired products, a snowflake die and a sentiment from the Jolly Old Saint Nick set, are featured on the inside of the card.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy, and happy stamping!

I love the Wondrous Wreath and Wonderful Wreath Framelits in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. So many possibilities with this set and I love that it can be used year-round. However, it is November and it’s time to start thinking of Christmas cards. Here’s my card:
Wondrous Christmas Wreath
- Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, and Cherry Cobbler inks were used to create a traditional Christmas wreath, with a traditional sentiment of Merry Christmas from Petite Pairs.
- An image from Daydream Medallion stamped in craft white ink on Cherry Cobbler creates an elegant background for the wreath.
- Beautifully Baroque embossing folder on Very Vanilla carries out the elegant theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy, and happy stamping!

Today’s post was inspired by Pam Strobel at Stamp and Stretch. I loved her idea of turning the pie boxes from October’s My Paper Pumpkin kit into a Christmas tree. I love all aspects of Christmas, especially candle light, so I added a tea light to the bottom of my tree.
Oct. Paper Pumpkin Christmas Tree
- Pine branches stamped on the front and back of the box give it an authentic tree look.
- Cutout stars allow the light to shine through.
- A tea light inserted into a circle at the bottom of the box not only creates a stand for the tree, it also provides the light.
While it is hard to photograph a lighted image, thought I would at least give you an idea of how it looks. It looks much better in real life.
Christmas Tree with Tea Light
I plan on grouping several of these together as part of this year’s Christmas decorations.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy, and happy stamping.
