Wacky Watercooler Year End Blog Hop!

Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop
Wooo Hooo! It's time for another Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop!!! Some of the best Demos in Stamping Up, getting together to showcase current products to make your holidays that much brighter! LOVE IT!!! If you've followed the Hop from the beginning, you should have arrived here from Gail's blog. If not, no worries, you can either click on the banner above to start at the beginning, or see the bottom of this post for the next stop. It doesn't matter where you start, because there will always be a link for the next blog. Easy peasy!

I don't know about you, but I'm realllly behind on making this year's Christmas cards! Every year I promise myself to make them all year long, so I won't be stressed out by waiting til the last minute. You know, like I always do! Every.Single.Year! *sigh* So here I am, way behind schedule - again, lol! Sound familiar?? (Please say yes!) So, I've decided to help out us both out - fun, festive and easy cards to make the process fun again!!

1st card - Gate Fold

You can write your own sentiments inside with SU's silver or gold markers!

Wow! So many great ideas! My favorite is the faux quilt card--yummy!

Deborah Smart said...

Jeanne, you really are the queen! Of terrific projects, that's for sure! I just love your fancy fold cards, and the faux quilt - I never thought of the lattice die for Christmas. So glad you are part of the Hop!

Terri said...

Your projects are always so creative! Thanks for sharing! :)

Gail said...

All of the above - especially the quilt card. I love quilt cards!

Hi Jeanne, thanks so much for being part of this Blog Hop. As usual I love your creations. That gate-fold card with the snowflake cut-out is gorgeous! I love the white and red one with the bling in the centre. The the one with the green snowflake is a surprise, especially with the button in the centre. Great idea! I have to try your idea of embossing on vellum and having a solid stamped tree underneath. Love it! I'm glad they carried over the Evergreen stamp set. I'm still trying to figure out how you did the quilted design. I can see the obvious Lattice Bigz die cutout in Whisper White, but did you also cut out the DSP or the green? It certainly is effective. Thanks for the idea!

Love your gatefold card with the Festive Flurry die cut. Great colors!
THE gold embossing on vellum makes your Evergreen card very elegant. I definitely am going to case your lattice quilt card. Great cards!!!

Bev said...

Jeannie your quilt card is lovely!

I love the Gate fold card!

Gail said...

Great ideas every one!
Although I'm not a SU demo, I think I have almost everything here!
Sad isn't it!
Going to carry on to see what else I can do with my hoard/collection!
