A Christmas Storybook Card!

Hello Friends!

I have busy in the Craft Room!

Today’s Cards is a Storybook Card!

I visit a blog in the UK, named Pootles!

Sam Hammond is a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator in the UK!

Sam showed on her blog the other day, a Christmas ‘book’!

I watched her video, and figured out the Imperial measurements!

Sam usually has the conversion, but this time she didn’t.

A link will be at the end of this Post!

Here is the First of Three Storybooks, I made!

A Christmas Book!

Christmas Kit Cards!

Hello Stampers!

I signed up for a monthly Christmas Card Kit from a fellow

Stampin’Up! Demonstrator, Debbie Hendersen

I have been slack in my Cards this year!

I saw that Debbie was offering this on a monthly basis…

…I was all in!

I received my first kit of 2 of 4 designs, for a total of 8 Cards!

Everything in the Kit was all pre-cut!

All I had to do was stamp and put together!

Debbie’s Cards used the Peaceful Boughs Bundle…

…Stamp Set and Dies.

I opted to use my older Christmas Pines and Dies!

Here are the Cards!

So sorry about picture quality…I took the pics of Debbie’s Cards from my Computer!

 

Card #1

100_6591

I tried the Puff Paint on one of the pinecones I had cut out…

…I did not like it at all. I opted not to use…I think I need to play with it more!

Here is the inside of Card #1
