PPA148 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Greetings

Stampin up stampinup stamp it pretty holiday catalog card idea punch demonstrator blog

Although I made the commitment to take the leap this year to a Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio holiday photocard (check out my MDS card here), I’m still sending out handcrafted cards to 20 or so family and friends who anticipate receiving them each year.  That’s the purpose of today’s simple card, along with taking up the challenge to use the classic holiday colors below for the new Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA148).

DON’T MISS the rest of the PPA Design Team’s projects using these colors and give it a “go” yourself!


  • Quick holiday WOW!  The Stampin’ Up! Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and Holiday Ornaments Framelits helped me pop out this sophisticated ornament in a flash.  Save 15% when you buy them together.  Ornament Keepsakes Wood-Mount Bundle (129949) OR Ornament Keepsakes Clear-Mount Bundle (129950).

  • A touch of embossing (I love using the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla Card Stock) adds a pretty finish at the bottom of the card.

  • The Crumb Cake envelope flap was covered with a pattern from  Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and snipped to coordinated perfection with Paper Snips.

  1. Beautiful card, Mary! Know I would be thrilled to receive a hand made card and tHat your family and friends will be as well!

  2. The recipients will treasure this card. It is very lovely. I admire you for jumping into digital. I know the digital design world will be the better for you being part of it!

  3. Beautiful card, Mary. I’ve been a bit hesitant about getting this stamp set and companion dies but this and other cards I’ve seen using it, convince me more and more to just jump at the chance to get it before it’s gone. This will be in my December order to start off my Tulip Reward list for next year.
