Did you know its only 213 days until Christmas??


Yes you did need to know that – well so my sister thinks. She hosted a Stamp A Stack yesterday for her friends and decided she wanted 3 Christmas cards! I was like you .. Christmas already??? but I dont have any new (Christmas) sets! So I borrowed one from Lisa and another from Jossleen – and would you believe I didnt use either?? but I will make a couple of samples with their sets before I return them.

I did have a little money saved up in my Stampin’ Up! account so I decided to get me the new “A Wish for Peace” stamp set. I love the tradition images in this set and knew my sister’s friends would like it too. We also had a colour challenge on LNS Convention so incorporated that into the card/s.

peace2These are the two cards I made and as you  can see one is coloured and the other isnt, both use the Holiday Treasure DSP along with a little Ridinghood Red Taffeta ribbon.

This one has the ribbon around the DSP layer and tied in a small double knot. peace1

It is also has some coloured daubered onto the trees, church and steeple.

This second card has the ribbon tied with a loose single knot in the middle and wrapped around the Vanilla layer. There is no colouring on the trees or church – which makes this one a very quick and easy christmas card and easy to do at a Stamp A Stack.

Dont forget you only have till Friday to take advantage of the two promotions running in May so work out what 4 packs of DSP you want and get your order and money thru to me so you dont miss out on getting the 4th pack for free!

The ladies loved this card yesterday and I rather like it too and hope you do as well.

Time for Latte me thinks!



  1. They’re great Leonie and I’m looking forward to what you’ll come up with for our Christmas in July (? or whichever month we’re doing them) Stamp-a-Stack.

  2. I like Kerri’s remark! I’m too ADD to start Christmas cards now. I’ll be sick to death of them by Thanksgiving as it is. However, your two are just wonderful!
