Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks

This month has been busy - Convention in Brussels and also lots of Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks.

At the beginning on the month I held an all day Stamp-a-Stack and this past weekend I held two Mini Stamp-a-Stacks. Anyone going to both (and there were quite a few people) ended up with 24 Christmas Cards (8 different designs) which is a good start to cutting through any Christmas Card list.

The ones held this past weekend were mini stamp-a-stacks and people got to make 8 cards - 2 of 4 designs each (instead of the 16 cards that were made on the full day). The designs were totally different from the full day too.

I had received requests for various designs - the most popular one being a card that I had made and posted on this blog back on 17 September. This was the card, so everyone made 2 of these, which feature the Bright & Beautiful stamp set.


The other cards that everyone made were -


White Christmas stamp set and All is Calm Designer Washi Tape

Stampin' Up! supplies used for this card are:



Festival of Trees Bundle (stamp set and matching punch) with Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Pack

Stampin' Up! supplies used to make this card are:



Wondrous Wreath Bundle (stamp set and Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies) and Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder

Stampin' Up! supplies used to make this card are:


As well as the cards, everyone also decorated their envelopes too. The last card shows my now decorated envelope but most people stamped a Cherry Cobbler Box on the flap at the back.

It's worth noting that I used bundles were possible because you save 15% on the total of the individual prices by doing so. Items are available individually if you enjoy fussy cutting, but personally I'll take the easy option every time.

My classes in November will be based around Christmas gift ideas and not cards.  Although there may be a sneaky card in there, I just haven't decided as yet.

I now need to sit down and make all of my Christmas cards to send so watch this space for more ideas over the coming weeks.
