Stampin’ Up! Joy at Christmas

Stampin up demonstrator holiday card idea best of everything rubber stamps mojo monday
Don't you love it when stamps multi-task?  Stampin' Up! Best of Everything rubber stamps (images below) are fresh, modern and versatile for many occasions.  However, a card I received at Founder's Circle from fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Tammi Oakley, convinced me that it was adorable for the holidays, too. 


Tammi's original card (not shown) featured the bird on a branch and the sparkly red berries, both of which were incorporated into today's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO220) and a Quick Card 5 x 3 1/2" thank you note (below).  What do you think?  Please leave me a comment or your questions at the end of this post.  I love hearing from you!

  • My Mojo project shares a couple sneek peeks for snazzy embellishing from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog (available Jan. 4)  Included are Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (no mess and easy to use) and Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (just plain gorgeous).

  • I loosened the stitches on both ends of the pleated ribbon so that it would tuck flat underneath my card stock.
  • The luscious snowflake texture was created using Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Retro cool!
