Quick and simple Christmas card Challenge

Hello Stampers!
Christmas card in a snap Challenge!  I was once again challenged to create a Christmas card with whatever I had on my craft table in 5 minutes or less.  I had several pieces already cut out from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies so I grabbed some trees and a deer.
Then with the Carols of Christmas stamp set I heat embossed the sentiment on Whisper White Thick and cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. 
Pretty simple layout for a quick card.  To add texture to the trees I embossed them in the Seaside textured impressions embossing folder.

Thank you for joining me today!

The amazing Stamparatus!

Hello Stampers!
Have you seen this new amazing product from Stampin' Up online?
The Stamparatus is an indispensable positioning tool that allows you prefect placement EVERY time!  Input from thousands of demonstrators resulted in a product with all of the very best features and non of the drawbacks of other positioners--with a sleek and sturdy design and some WOW new developments, to boot!


  •       Multi-step stamping?  BRING IT ON!  You'll never waste cardstock trying to line things up again.
  • Multiples of the same card?  No Problem!  Set it up once and stamp as many as you want!
  • Partially-stamp an image?  Never fear!  You can stamp again in precisely the same spot.
Here's just a few features of this awesome new workhorse...it's going to change everything you know about stamping.
  • Compatible with both red rubber cling-mount and photopolymer stamps.
  • Build-in rules and grid lines for quick measuring and placement.
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper, but not take up tons of space.
  • 2 clear grid reversible hinged plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with without having to change stamps!
  • 2 strong bar magnets to hold the paper in place 
  • magnet storage areas built into the bottom of the workface--never lose them!

Isn't that sooo exciting?  I'm so excited to get my hands on this amazing product to share at my PMS night!  Of course, the rush to order this new tool is expected to be pretty intense.  Stampin' Up hates to disappoint anyone with back ordered items so they are offering three special "Reservation periods to help space out the shipments, since the manufactures can only produce so many at one time.  The special preorder reservations periods are as follows:
