This is one of the ten cards that was made at my annual Christmas Card Class. I paired the image with the music notes wheel as I thought it a greatbackground for this list of Christmas carols – carols need music, right?! I also thought the antique look went well with the vintage print font used in the image.
Stamps – O Holy Night, Music Notes wheel
Ink & Paper – Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories – linen thread, chevron ribbon

My girlfriend and I like to swap stamp sets from time to time. This Joy to the World set is one she purchased from the Holiday Catalogue and I borrowed it to play with a few weeks ago. The JOY in this image has the same look as our Gorgeous Grunge stamp set so I paired them to create this card.
I inked the greeting stamp with Real Red and Baked Brown Sugar markers, stamped it on Very Vanilla and then cut it out with an oval framelit. I then created the stamped background piece by stamping images from the Gorgeous Grunge set onto another Very Vanilla piece. I also added a few splatters of Baked Brown Sugar ink onto my oval to tie things together.
The card itself is Wild Wasabi cardstock. I added a Baked Brown Sugar die cut button and Glimmer Red heart to the front as well as a large pearl. When the card was assembled, I added Red Dazzling Details to JOY for a bit more seasonal sparkle!
Stamps – Joy to the World, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink & Paper – Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, Glimmer Red paper
Accessories – Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits, Oval Collection framelits, Sweet Buttons Embosslit die, piercing tools, large pearl, linen thread, Dazzling Details
It is the end of the Winter Collection at Create With Connie and Mary – I can’t believe it!! There were so many wonderful projects and tutorials shared with the subscribers!! I am so grateful I could be a part of it all!!
We always end each week with a challenge and this final one is a color challenge. This week the colors are Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, and Smoky Slate.
Here’s my card:
I liked this card so much when I made it, I just had to make it one of the cards for my annual Christmas Card class. The Winter Frost DSP package in the Holiday catalogue makes this color combination a perfect choice for a Christmas card! I stamped the solid tree image in Pool Party ink and then the tree outline stamp over top with Coastal Cabana ink. It makes for a great looking tree, especially with all that bling on it!!
Visit the Create with Connie and Mary site today to see what the other designers made with these colors. I hope you’re inspired to get working on your holiday cards this year!! Happy Stampin’!

Today’s “card” is a file folder with list insert. I didn’t want this folder to open as a card like I’ve made in the past, but I wanted it to have a removable insert for my message. To prevent it from opening, I wrapped a belly band around the folder and attached the stamped Santa image on top. My daughter loved this idea and suggested I make my girls each one so they could write their Christmas wish lists out on the insert – what a super idea!!!
