Fast, Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

Happy Halloween! The Sisters want to celebrate with... Christmas cards?? Yes, it's true. Still seems a little early to be thinking of Christmas cards but if you are making your cards by hand you will love today's post. We are featuring Christmas cards that are quick and more importantly-- easy to duplicate. So, on with the show--


Rachel is up first this week with her quick card and some fun colors. A Christmas stamp set called Festival of Trees and some punches. Click here to find out it all goes together.

Here is Debbie's quick card, she used a stamp from the set called Cheerful Christmas. This set is in the Holiday Mini and has some fun accessories to compliment it.
 Here is a link to her blog to read more.
 

Here is my (Karla) card for this week. I used Merry Everything which has a matching punch-- that makes this card go together even quicker. There are more pictures in today's post.
 
 
Thank-you for coming by today and make sure you come back next week for more stamping fun.

Halloween is Just Around the Corner

Welcome to Sisters in Stamping. We are so glad you stopped by. Today we are going to be sharing with you some great Halloween card ideas. Why don't you make a Halloween card or two and send them off to surprise some friends or family this year? Everyone loves getting "happy" mail.

 
First up, we have a cute pirate owl Halloween card from Debbie. Great way to use up some scrap pieces of cardstock. Make a bunch of different pirates by switching up the colors on the owl. Don't forget to visit Debbie's blog for more information.


Next, we have a not so spooky Halloween card from Rachel. What a "dazzling" card to send to a little one this Halloween. No one will be spooked by this friendly little glitter ghost. This is also another great card to make multiples of and changing it up a bit by changing the designer paper. Head over to Rachel's blog for more details.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week.
