Christmas Pines

Earlier this week I was talking about using some of the older but still current products that we tend to forget about when new things come out.  It is kind of like when waving new shiny things in front of you, you forget what you are doing.

Christmas Pines is another stamp set that is in the 2017/2018 Stamping’ Up! Annual Catalog that I had forgotten about.  It is a beautiful stamp set that has matching Thinlits called Pretty Pines.  I love these Thinlits because they make beautiful pine cones and sprigs of pine branches.  My next door neighbor is so talented and she has these on her windows of her house (for real).  They are just beautiful and I wish I was that talented.  I keep trying to get her to come decorate my house but she still hasn’t shown up!  She is an amazing gardener her.  I won’t even talk about what my gardens look like!  They are pathetic!

At Home With You

This is the first card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  It uses a stamp set that is in the 2017/2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog called At Home With You.  This stamp set has matching Framelits Dies called At Home and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The background uses the Embossing Folder called Brick Wall.

One of the fun things about this Bundle is how the Framelits cut the door out on three sides so it opens.  Here is a picture of the card with it open.

Isn’t that fun?

Speaking of fun, whenever we have our monthly stamp club meetings the men of the families get together at a local restaurant for dinner and a couple of drinks.  They call it the Stampin’ Widows Club.  I am not sure how well they behave themselves at their “meeting”.  I have seen some crazy pictures and they tend to stay out longer than our club meeting lasts.  I am thinking they are having a little too much fun!
