I have finally figured out how to use this stamp set and it is retiring! I made this card for my brother in laws birthday.
I used the Kraft cardstock and the Riding Hood Red

This gift card idea came from Julie Buhlers blog
This is the card my club will be making this month.
Very simple once you get the measurements right. The card is 4 3/4" by 11" scored at 5 1/2, 3", and 8". Use the word window punch to make the slot and then a circle punch in the middle of where the two window punches meet.

I think I have made this little guy a million times, it is very easy.
I will be making this page for my club this coming weekend and I am pretty sure they will all like it.

My husbands coworker is leaving and he asked me to make her a card and this is what I came up with.
This tree is really pretty in gold embossing powder.

Group shot of all the cards

Here is the final group shot of all the SAS cards. They look pretty good. Let me know what you think. This was our first SAS and it was a lot of fun.

Snow Swirled is beautiful in green and black

LOVE IT!!!!! My upline made this one from a case of our upline Shelly May. I love the color combo, this is something I would have not thought of on my own. This stamp set, Snow Swirled, is definitely getting some use this Christmas!

Ornament card

This is another card my upline made, she is extremely talented and I'm glad she made this ornament card. I love the look of the designer paper as a highlight for the greeting.

Happy Holidays!

This is one of the cards my upline (Danita)
made for our SAS. I really like the ribbon out of
the Holiday Mini that she used!

Candy bar wrappers

Here are the candy bars up close

Christmas Candy Bar Wrappers

Aren't these little guys just too much!!!!!!
I used alot of different ideas I saw on other blogs and on splitcoaststampers. Thank you all for the great ideas out there.
I put all of these candy bar wrappers on Kraft so that the other colors would pop. They turned out pretty good if I do say so myself!
I think these will make cool gifts for my stamp club this month

This is a card I made that didn't quite make the cut for my SAS, but I really like it. I will probably play with it some more, it needs some more details like embossing or something.

I used the same color combo as the Merry and Bright card. The colors are Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and Whisper White. The silver cording is used again with the silver brads for a little embellishment. The Snow wheel is rolled with the Bravo Burgundy ink. I did scuff up the edges a little with the Cutter Kit distressing tool.

Merry and Bright

Isn't he adorable? This is the final card that I will be making for my Stamp a Stack. I used the Merry and Bright stamp set. The color combo is Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, and Whisper White. I seem to use this combo alot at the holiday season. The Bravo Burgundy is on dimensionals and then I slipped the silver cording (I can never get enough of that cording!) under the cardstock. The little star is also on a dimensional.

I punched out the circle in the Bravo Burgundy with the new large punch and then the snowman is adhered to the Mellow Moss cardstock and he fits perfectly inside. I versa marked the snowflakes from the same stamp set all over the Bravo Burgundy.

Super easy and cute!!
