Jolly Friends by Stampin’ Up!

Jolly Friends by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC431

I managed to get a bit of crafting done this week, so I’m actually all prepared now for all of the Create with Connie & Mary challenges for November! Woohoo! I think I’m finally settling into a new routine! Well maybe! Who knows? I’ve probably jinxed it now! Lol!

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge and as you may have realised they are my favourite of the two types of challenge!


I actually managed two cards for this week’s challenge. I’ve gone with the festive card as my main one! I love Jolly Friends by Stampin’ Up! It’s such a fun, cute set and so I couldn’t resist using it for today’s project.


Aren’t those elves and Santa just so cute? And I love the moose too! In fact I think he’s my favourite character in the set.  Which one is yours?

My second card is totally un-festive and unseasonal, but I love it! It’s using the very first stamp set I bought Papillon Potpourri from Stampin’ Up! I had only previously bought a few single wooden stamp sets before I discovered Stampin’ Up! 4 years ago. It was my 4th anniversary last week! I can’t believe it’s only been 4 years – it feels like a lot longer!


I used So Saffron and Calypso Coral to go with the Soft Sky DSP. It makes for a lovely fresh, spring card! I will have to remember to use this colour combination next spring!

Well I hope you like today’s projects. Please do pop over to the Create with Connie & Mary challenge site and see what the rest of the designers have come up with this week!

  5. Oh, I JUST got this set in the mail…I’m late to the party! Your card is SO cute and put me over the top when I saw it in the file! I think the moose is my favorite, too! Great job with the sketch this week!

  6. Happy anniversary! I love the moose, elves and santa. Great use of the set! I also love the color combination and the combination of the stripes and floral butterflies.

  7. Sorry I’m late commenting – I love both cards, festive and spring! Great choice with the diagonal striped border and background too.
