Baby, it's Cold Outside....

Hello stampers!  Happy Monday!

Are you cold?  Buy a new stamp set!
You'll still be cold, but you'll have new stamps!  Yay!

Seriously, though, there's no reason not to buy some new goodies, especially since Stampin'Up! is running their online sale.  If you're not a cyber-shopper, just email your order to me and I'll submit it today (Monday, Nov. 25th).  You have until December 2nd to take advantage of the sale.  I'll be submitting one more group order on December 1st, so if you'd like to save money on shipping, be sure to get your order to me.

So.... how are those Christmas cards coming along???  Have you finalized your design and ordered your supplies?  Or are you still casting about for a design or a color scheme?  If you haven't quite made up your mind yet, I've got a cool card for you today.

Don't the various shades of blue along with the silver card stock and ribbon just send a little shiver down your back??  This beautiful and mailable( no lumps or bumps anywhere!)  card is the work of one of our talented Stamp2gether demonstrators, Shannon Carrier.  The stamp set she used is called Warmth and Wonder.  You can see it on page 39 of the Holiday Catalog.  It is one of the exclusive sets that hostesses can get FREE!  The colors Shannon used are Island Indigo for the base of the card, with the second layer being the Silver Foil sheets featured on page 28 of the Holiday Catalog.  The DSP is from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, which can be found on page 29 of the Holiday Catalog.  Shannon stamped the tree in Island Indigo ink, then stamped the little Christmas lights in Metallic Silver Encore ink.  Some of the pretty silver 3/8 inch ribbon ( page 28 of the Holiday Catalog) adds a perfect horizontal  accent to this otherwise vertical card.

Do you feel inspired to finally get started on your cards? I hope so!
 Please don't forget to come back on Wednesday for more stamping inspiration.
Warm hugs
