Jolly Gingerbread - Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Last month I purchased 2 extra kits so my girls and I could craft together once they came home from college, so we finally broke into November's Paper Pumpkin last night. Since I'm not doing gift cards this year I knew I would cut the tiny cards in half and make them into full sized cards. I'm sharing 3 alternative cards I made this week. Some were disappointed that it didn't contain a gingerbread boy, however those are easy to make and many are getting very creative with how to do it - here is my version of a gingerbread boy. I used an older SU! punch, the word window punch for arms and legs, and a circle for the head. The cute peppermint buttons are from the PP kit, along with the gingerbread house and fancy decorative stamps and several sentiments! I included some "Mountain Air" die cut trees, snowflake sequins, Subtles embossing folder, white embossing for the smoke and white gel pen. Measurements:  Cider - 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2&quo

Perfectly Plaid Trees - Stampin' Up!

  I would have to say that this year, my two favorite Christmas stamp sets from Stampin' Up! are "Perfectly Plaid" and "Merry Moose".  Between the two sets, there is an awesome variety of trees and sentiments!    This next card was inspired by AESTAMPS A LATTE.  Stamped and stamped off onto crumb cake carstock and one punched with the tree punch and on dimensionals.  I created the snow with white embossing powder.  pretty simple card but I like the natural-ish look of it.  :)
