Stampin up a cute christmas holiday mini catalog

Just two more days until the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog goes live!  Today's post promises to tempt you with oodles of Holiday Mini sneak peeks!  Watch for the NEW PRODUCT ALERTS!

COMING UP TOMORROW:  This week's Tuesday Tutorial will include a video

I couldn't choose between the two Mojo Monday sketch options (MOJO154) created by Julee Tilman so I opted to play with both.  Please leave me a comment at the end of this post if you enjoy them!

SQUARE CARD (approx. 4 1/4" Square)

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  I used a VersaMarker to isolate just two trees from the "A Cute Christmas" stamp.  Heat Embossing with White Embossing Powder added a crisp finish.

  1. I *heart* both versions! Love the rhinestones in the button holes 🙂

  2. Oh my! I love them both Mary!! I wouldn’t be able to choose which I like best! 🙂 TFS-I LOVE your creations!

  3. Carolyn Sue Groves

    Oh, I definitely like the square better, no! wait, the round is best, no, square, nope, the round. OK, this is it! I like the square one the bestest!
    they are both very cute and eye-catching!

  4. Unbelievably GORGEOUS, Mary! Round or Square? BOTH! XOXO

  5. Hi Nancy: I appreciate your feedback.

    Garden Green is part of the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper and Big Button Collection. Always Artichoke is part of the Deck the Halls DP and Big Buttons Collection. SU is definitely mixing up the greens for the holidays.

    Real Red or Cherry Cobbler look smashing with any of the greens. I personally like Pear Pizzazz with either. For amore vintage look, traditional look consider Always Artichoke!

    Hugs, M

  6. These cards are so cute. I already knew this was a set I needed.

  7. I do like them, and I am a terrible traditionalist when it comes to Christmas colors. I would like to see SU! use another green other than Old Olive in their Christmas DS paper, and less brown and vanilla. I just had to whine a little. What current green color do you think would look good with Real Red and Cherry Cobbler?

  8. Very cute, love the square ones.

  9. I love them both, but really love the square one. The color combination is awesome!

  10. Beautiful cards!

  11. I love them both–but I think I am a tad bit more partial to the square one, only because I love those little trees so much. TFS!!

    Stamping Hugs,

  12. These are both fabulous! Love the bling in the button!

  13. Stunning cards! I love how you used the rhinestones.

  14. Hello Mary: Those are lovely cards and, even if it is a little early to think about snow and the Holidays, specially with 90+ weather up here, the cold days will be here soon enough. As always, it’s great that you share your talent with us.

    Your Monday Morning Mojo always gets me going for the week. I love the bling in the big button but for some reason the square scallop design stood out today as my fav. I think I’ll have to try the Versamarker — I’ve always seen it in the catalog but didn’t know quite what to do with it. Have a great week!

  16. They are both beautiful cards. Really love the colors

  17. Those little wonky trees and ornaments are adorable! I am also likin’ the blue with the red for a different look 🙂

  18. Love those colors and those are such cute cards!

  19. Love both of the cards, Mary!
    Love those scallops!
    Very cool cards.

  20. You did brat!!! LOL Love them and I have seen the Mini, OMG, I am in trouble!

  21. These are great ideas. I love the use of the scallop squares: They do add great interest.

  22. I love both cards, but the square is my fave! These are beautiful!

  23. Both of these ROCK! 🙂

  24. Both cards are gorgeous! I love the blue with the red!

  25. Gorgeous!! As always you’re creativity is top notch!

  26. Wow look at all the NEW stuff you used. Can’t wait to get my holiday order. Great job on both cards. So cute.

  27. The bling in the button is just impossibly cute! I love how you worked the scallop theme throughout each card without detracting from the focal image. Well done as always. (looking forward to the vid!!)

  28. Gorgeous cards. Hugs Marja
