Manic Monday – Christmas Card Edition

YamStamps Manic Monday Christmas Card

This time of year can certainly be hectic, so I thought it was a good time for a Manic Monday – Christmas Card Edition! Some of the items featured on this card are going to be retiring – so you’ll want to grab them while you can. Read more about the Year End Sale Event here – including links to the lists.

You may notice that this is a black card. I liked the way the black made the gold and white “pop” more – but black is a hard colour to write on….so what you can’t see is that there is an additional piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside of the card so that the personal greeting is readable.

The gold plaid background is one of the sheets from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series  Paper. This has been my FAVOURITE paper from the Holiday Catalogue. I love the weight of it, and I love the “wow” of the metallic. It adds glamour to the project without effort! The gold foil snowflake is another way to add “bling” without too much effort. Both the DSP & the foil snowflake will be unavailable after the end of the Holiday Catalogue – and current supplies are available while they last (so if you really like these items, you’ll want to order them ASAP!). The  JOY sentiment is from Cheers to the Year, which is available in wood mount or clear mount until the end of the Holiday Catalogue sales period. It’s heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and punched out with the Starburst Punch. Good news…LOL…both of those are from the Annual Catalogue, so will be around for a while still!

This card can be easily created en masse so great for those that are still finishing their holiday cards (guilty party here….LOL). Have you finished your cards yet? Once again, like the cobbler’s children who have no shoes, I am the cardmaker who is scrambling to get Christmas Cards together to send out for herself!! On the YamStamps Facebook page, I shared a great article about the importance of still mailing  a Christmas Card. I truly believe that a handmade card increases the value and significance even more! So on that note…I’m off to see what I can do about my Christmas Card list!

Year End Sale – Starts Now!

year end sale

Happy December! Celebrate by shopping the Year End Sale from Stampin’ Up! Canada! While supplies last, grab some retiring product and specially priced items. If you place an order by December 7th, you’ll be sure to receive it in time for Christmas, too!

Here is a list of items included in this event. Download the pdf file here or the sortable spreadsheet here. For the most up to date availability, be sure simply to go to the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada store. You’ll also be able to see what is retiring from the Holiday Catalogue. You may notice that the Hearts Come Home Wood Mount and Clear Mount Bundles are included on the retiring list, but that the individual items are NOT. This just indicates that the discounted bundle will not be available to order in the future, though the separate stamp set and framelits may well be. Also included in the sale is the Mini Tinsel Trim that I featured on the Sparkly Nosed Reindeer card from yesterday.

If you have been contemplating the Demonstrator Starter Kit, you are able to order any of the year end sale items in your kit….or you could include pre-orderable items from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue! Please contact me for more information if you are interested!
