Favorite Handmade Christmas Cards

Do you send handmade Christmas Cards? While Christmas is still more than 3 months away, its never too early to get a start on the holiday stamping. Are you local to the Dane County area?  Sign up for the Christmas Card Stamp Camp this Saturday.

Poinsettia Christmas Card made with Stampin'UP! set: Joyful ChristmasWhat's your favorite Christmas Stamp Set? You may have noticed a lack of Holiday stamp sets in the new 2013-2014 Annual Catalog. Have no fear, Stampin'UP! does indeed have Holiday stamp sets. The new Holiday sets are published in the Holiday Catalog. My favorite new Christmas stamp set is the Poinsettia set.

Christmas Card made with Stampin'UP! stamp set: Snowflake SoireeI really like the look of this flower - clean and simple, striking color combination and the richness of the gold embossing. This is one of the cards you can choose to make at the Christmas Card Stamp Camp this weekend. And you'll have your choice of making the flower in white or red.

Here's another favorite Christmas Card from last year. This one uses a set called Snowflake Soiree. The colors for the snowstorm on the top of this card are Night of Navy, Pool Party, Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake - and the whole card sparkles with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

You may notice that the snowflake set is not in the Holiday Catalog. The snowflakes are a carryover item from last year. Here are pictures of all the carryover sets.

What's your style? Ornaments, snowflakes, Christmas tree . . .  Leave a comment below.  I appreciate knowing what you like because that helps me know what to post.
