Fall for Holiday Countdown #12: Quick & Easy Cards

Can you believe it… we’ve made it to day 12! Maybe I’m just surprised that I made it! Ha Ha… I hope you enjoyed are little “tour” of the new Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog. If you’re just joining us, you can go back through my blog posts from September 1st through today to see my “countdown” of 12 projects featuring new product from the holiday catalog.  If you’d like to check out the new goodies, you can view them in my online store HERE or in a downloadable PDF format HERE. One of the things I hear most often at my card classes is that you love to just come and have everything prepped so you can just get to the actual craftin’. Well, today’s projects are like having me – or more specifically, a pre-designed class – delivered to your door! The Watercolor Christmas card kit has enough supplies for you to make 20 cards! And today’s video shows you just how easy and fast they come together (while still looking adorable!). I created all four designs in the kit in under 10 minutes! That means you could make all 20 of these cards in less than an hour.

These cards are really gorgeous and I love that the kit comes with everything you need to make 20 beautiful cards (seriously, they are so much better in person!). What’s even better is you get the ink, the embellishments and a full size stamp set with the kit. You can even buy a refill kit (item# 145387, $21), that will allow you to make 20 more cards without getting a duplicate ink spot and stamp set. But, what I’m going to help you with today — is how to use that stamp set to give yourself even more options. Here is a
