Winter Post

 Hi Stampers

I love this quote from Lyssa Griffin Swolanek because it is so true!

 "The point of handmade is not just that you did it cheaper or better or faster or cuter, or even that YOU had fun doing it. It's that you took a moment–an irretrievable moment that will never come again–out of your life, to make something heartfelt, for someone you care enough about to make sure they have a tangible reminder that you want them, personally, to have a great Christmas"

I'm working on this month's Thank You Cards.  I decided to use the Winter Post Brush Stamp Set.   This set—in addition to being the first stamp set in Shelli’s Signature Collection—is an all-around Christmas set with many options you’re sure to adore for years to come.  I Love the  images in this set for post cards, scrapbook pages, or handmade cards with a unique twist.

I actually have this stamp set in wood mount but the more I use the My Digital Studio, the more I enjoy making cards or at least part of the cards on them.  In this case, I printed out the figure skaters and the snowflakes on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  I colored the images with a Blender Pen and Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze Classic ink Pads.  A very quick and easy card to make!

If you think the price of $79.95 for My Digital Studio is too expensive, you should try the My Digital Studio Express.  This downloadable version comes with the full software and fresh, minimal digital content using Stampin’ Up!’s artwork, designs, and colors and it sells for only $39.95.

Thanks for stopping by today
