Good Friday Morning! One of the fin things I did last weekend was travel to my team lead’s house for our Quarterly In Person Inkin’ Krew Team meeting. We made three beautiful Christmas cards designed by three of our team members with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
This first card was designed by Amy Koenders, our team lead. The greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle really pops against the clean white background and the Cherry Cobbler sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set fits perfectly in the corner. She finishes it with some nice touches of shimmer with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Gold Holly Leaves. You Can find more of Amy’s designs on her blog Stamp with Amy K.
This pretty card was designed by our teammate Karen Ksenzakovic. The Painted Christmas designer series paper is a gorgeous backdrop to the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamped pine cones and I love how she designed the pine branches in a spray around the label. The sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set is a sweet touch on the Cherry Cobbler die cut label. You can find more of Karen’s work on her blog Creative Stamping Designs.
Our last card was made by our teammate Donna Leonard at Stamp Dabbles. I love rustic Christmas cards made with kraft paper and Donna’s design brings this together perfectly! The pine branches from the Wintry 3D embossing folder go beautifully with the Painted Christmas DSP and I love how the stamped greenery looks on Crumb Cake card stock! Donna also incorporated the sentiments from the Christmas To Remember stamp set.
I love how each card is so different and beautiful, it really shows the versatility of the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. And I love how each arrangement of greenery uses the same colors, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Early Espresso, and yet each arrangement is different! It shows that you can easily arrange the die cut pieces any way you want and still come out with a beautiful card.
It was fun to get together to make cards with a few of the other ladies on our team and see these beautiful designs. I feel fortunate that I live close enough to some of my teammates to meet in person, because we are all over the country!
