I Believe Card

Sounds of the Season Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I love everything about this "I Believe" Card.  I love the lovely blend of colors and patterns in the Poinsettia Place Designer.  I love the way the Poinsettia Place paper is framed with the Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle and then layered on embossed Soft Suede and Bumblebee Card Stock.  I love the way the Whisper White Crinkled Seam binding tops the Brushed Metallic embossed bell.  And finally, the quirky sentiments on the inside and on the outside make my heart smile.

Christmas Means More Stampin' Up!

Stamping "Every Time a bell rings an angel gets its wings" makes me think of the classic Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life".

Sounds of the Season Stampin' Up!

My most important tip for making this card is to stamp your Christmas Means More sentiments using the Stamparatus.  The ability to restamp a sentiment without trying to line it up, again and again, makes all the difference for getting clear crisp stamped images.

Every Time a Bell Rings

Cherish the Season Stampin' Up!

Cherish the Season

Hello Friends,

Every year I set aside time to watch the It's a Wonderful Life Movie with James Stewart and Donna Reed.  It's a classic.  My favorite quote from the movie is "Every Time a Bell Rings An Angel Gets Its Wings".  So when I saw the cute bell dies (Sounds of the Season Dies) and the Every Time a Bell Rings quote in the Christmas Mean More stamp set, I knew that I would use them together to make cards and tags.  The Christmas card above is my first attempt using the bells and the Every Time a Bell Rings stamp.

Cherish the Season Stampin' Up!

Here's a close up of the Sounds of the Season Dies.  I cut the bells from the Red & Green Foil Sheets.  The dies are everything I thought they would be and more!
