Holiday Lineup

I had my eye on this stamp set when it first came out and for some reason never ordered it – I guess I always had something else to get so I would wait.  And then Stampin’ Up! puts out cute stuff in the Holiday mini so I get that stuff and wait.  At Christmas time last year I still didn’t have this stamp set – and I still thought it was the cutest thing – so when do you think I finally bought it – in JANUARY and when do you think I finally got it out to actually use it – in OCTOBER!  How bad am I?

Last week while I was at Stephanie’s I brought the Holiday Lineup stamp set with me – because I was determined to make something with it.  On Thursday, Stephanie’s friend, Kara came over for the day to stamp with us – guess what she brought – Holiday Lineup!  She also had plans to make a card with this set for her co-workers.  So we got busy.  And look at how CUTE these cards turned out!

The one with the elves is the one we designed for Kara to use for her co-workers.  I played around with the others for me.  I’m thinking about using the snowmen for our family card – I need to leave off one snowman to make it a family of 5 instead of 6.  And the little reindeer are funny too!  The Designer Series Paper is Merry Moments from the Idea Book and uses traditional colors – Real Red, Garden Green, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla.  Everything on these is colored with Stampin’ Write Markers and the White Gel Pen was used to add the white on the hats and beards.  This set was a lot of fun to play with because the characters have such personality to them!

Have a happy day!
