Celebrate the Season with Stampin’ Up! Nordic Noel


Mojo monday 363 mary fish

I had such a wonderful time being pampered in St. George at the Stampin’ Up! Founder’s Circle Retreat (see photos and details on my Stampin’ Pretty Facebook page).  However, it feels good to be back home in Tucson, AZ and sharing projects with you again.


Today’s card began with this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO364).


  • The pretty packages on the Stampin’ Up! Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper were my muse.  I popped up one gift with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a pearl.

  • The second “gift” is a piece of Garden Green card stock that is transformed with a piece of Crisp Cantalope Thick Baker’s Twine.

    Boy observation and perception are the key on this one!!! I perceived each “gift Package” as scraps of paper snipped to the various shapes. Then keyed in on the package with the bow (the raised one with the pearl) and was stumped as to what you used for the bow! I stared and stared, could it be a punch..no..no current punch would make that…mmmmmmmmmmm…OMG finally I read the supplies list…nothing there…then the AH HAH moment…the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper…it was attached so well to the Whisper White CS that I couldn’t distinguish it as DSP…relieved that all those packages don’t have to be cut out!!!

  14. Love your card and how you interpreted the sketch!

  15. I sure appreciate your feedback. I love the little presents on the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper. They add so much WOW with very little work!

  16. Over the top, Mary — I can hear the Jingle Bells ringing now! Shows how “little things” can add up to pack a BIG punch.

  17. AWESOME AWESOME card Mary. This is the DSP that will be included in my registration packet for my Saddle-UP! event. Just know the ladies are going to love this sample.

  18. WOW!! this Mojo Monday sketch looks a bit intimidating to me but you did a wonderful job interpreting it using this pretty DSP, thank you so much for sharing and, welcome back from the SU retreat in Utah Mary, the pictures on your FB page speak volumes!!!!!
