Check out the savings at http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/Promotions/NA/2015/11_November/Online%20Extravaganza/Online_Extravaganza_Products_US.pdf
You can order items from the Online Extravaganza, Weekly Deals, AND any current Stampin' Up! catalog on the same order! But the online extravaganza is over on November 30, so don't delay!
One of the prettiest stamp sets in this year's Holiday Catalog is the Embellished Ornaments and the coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies (on sale in the weekly deals!). I have seen so many gorgeous creations using these! Today I'm going to show you some of the cards that I have in my possession made with this stamp set and thinlits.
Laura Barto created this beautiful card. The top layer of the ornament is cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (my favorite glimmer paper AND also on sale in the weekly deals!). The paper she used on the left of the card is the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.
This card uses just Real Red and Whisper White but still looks great - reinforcing the fact that you don't have to have a lot of colors to make a great card. The Boughs & Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on the back layer, and Gold Glimmer Paper and Basic Rhinestones were used for the "bling factor".
This next card uses non-traditional Christmas colors of Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. I love the combination of those two, don't you?
Now for a card that doesn't use the Embellished Ornaments stamp set, but does use the Delicate Ornament Thinlits. The stamper also used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies, Jingle All the Way stamp set, and Softly Falling TIEF. Kinda makes you want to go for a sleigh ride, doesn't it?
Here's another card that uses the Thinlits to cut out an image from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. The addition of the gold embossing in the background and the Gold Foil Sheet for the ornament holder makes this card easy but elegant.
My last card for today is also made by Laura Barto. In addition to today's featured products, Laura used the Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Silver Cord, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Silver Foil, and Red Glimmer paper. It's one of those cards that you hold in your hand and turn back and forth to watch the light play off the glimmer. So much prettier in real life!
I think a handmade Christmas card expresses your love and thoughtfulness for the recipient, don't you? I know I LOVE getting handmade cards for Christmas. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And isn't that really why we send cards at Christmas? To let people know that we are thinking about them and care about them.
Until next time...

I love flowers, but if someone gives me a living plant, it won't live long at my house. I even killed a cactus once. That's probably why I love stamped flowers so much. They don't die and I can keep them for years and years.
The cards here are made with the Reason for the Season stamp set and/or the Festive Flower Builder Punch (available individually or bundled to save 15%!). They give me hope that I CAN have pretty flowers at my house!
As you can see, these flowers are not only gorgeous, but pretty much are protected from my lame gardening attempts. How do flowers do at your place? If you have the same black thumb that I do, try stamping some up!
Until next time...
This card was CASE-d from Janice Urke. It is such a gorgeous card that I had to make it myself! The music paper is from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.
Judi Cayton made this pretty card. Notice the similar elements used on this and the first card?
This card is made with the stamp set only - not the punch. The Boughs & Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is added for some depth and texture.
I saw this pretty box at a Creative Convention I attended. It's made with the Festive Flower Builder Punch and Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies.
This card is so striking with the soft blue striped background and the vivid red poinsettia on the tag with the black greeting. Gorgeous!
Another card made with just the stamp set. This was one of the cards from a recent Christmas card Stamp-a-Stack class I had. The ladies loved it!
And what about this one? Nice, right?
(Did you notice anything different about this last card? The poinsettia doesn't match the ones above. That's because it's cut from the Home for Christmas paper. Fooled ya!)
Until next time...
