Stamping Christmas Songs!

I'm still moving stuff from my old computer to the new, and just found these again.  I don't know who to give credit for them, but they're great!

Winter Wonderland

Brayers roll....are you listening.
On the card... ink is glistening.
A beautiful sight... we're happy tonight,
Stamping in a winter wonderland.

In the kitchen we can build a snowman.
Then add color to his carrot nose.
You'll say: Are you finished?
I'll say: No ma'am,
I need to add some glitter to the snow.

When we stamp... ain't it thrilling.
Even when... the powders spilling.
We'll create and we'll play...the art stamper way,
Stamping in a winter wonderland.


Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
To the hostess house we go.
O'er the streets we pass
Anxious to spend cash.

Stamps are everywhere
Making spirits bright.
Oh what fun it is to sing,
The stamping song tonight!

Stampin' Up!, Stampin' Up!,
Stampin' all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to stamp
In the good old fashion way!

Stampin' Up!, Stampin' Up!,
Stampin's here to stay!
Oh, what fun it is to stamp
All the gifts you give today!


Let it Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the inks look so delightful
So while the winter is cold and damp
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!

It doesn't take much convincing
And I've brought a tool for crimping
Choose some paper, turn up the lamp
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!

When we carefully press just right
How we smile as the image unfolds
Add some color, so bold, so bright
The result is a sight to behold.

Our projects are quickly drying
And there's new techniques for trying
So until we get finger cramps
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!


Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with foils and glitters, Fa la la lala, la la la la.
Tis the season for us stampers, Fa la la...
Don we now our inks and powders, Fa la la...
Troll the heatguns and embossers, Fa la la...

See the card stock blank before us, Fa la la...
Strike the ink and join the chorus, Fa la la...
Follow me in merry masking, Fa la la...
Join us in some Yuletide stamping, Fa la la...

Faint away with chalks and markers, Fa la la...
Hail the new, ye rubber stampers, Fa la la...
Stamp with joyous all together, Fa la la...
Heedless of the times that's passed us, Fa la la...


12 Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me...

12 rubber stamps,
11 handmade papers,
10 embossing powders,
9 duel tip markers,
8 paper edger's,
7 assorted ink pads,
6 funky stickers,
5 exotic glitters,
4 brass stencils,
3 craft punches,
2 paper crimpers,
and a brand new embossing heat tool.

Rubber Wonderland
(sing to tune of Winter Wonderland)

Rubber calls are you listening?
Glitter falls bright and glistening.
Were happy tonight, Our stampings so bright . . .
Wading through a Rubber Wonderland.

In the craft room we can stamp a snow card,
send it onits way to a friend.
They'll say did you make it?
You'll say Yeah, man and you can stamp one too, yes you can!

Later on, well conspire,
as we sit, by the fire,
to face unafraid
the mess that we made
wading through our Rubber Wonderland

Ack! It's December Already!

Do you remember the cartoon "Cathy"? She always said "ack"- I just thought of her when I typed that. But that was my reaction when I looked at the calendar this morning and realized it's December 1st! Christmas is THIS month! Now when I look at the calendar all I see is the 25th.

John and I actually got up at 3:30am on Black Friday and were at Sam's Club by 4. My old computer has been slowly dying, so I wanted to get a new one. We ended up getting 2 laptops (1 for each of us) for less than we figured we'd end up paying for a desktop. Woohoo! So I'm slowly transfering everything from the old to the new. What a chore! And with 2 computers on my desk, I don't have much room to work. I'm still working on Christmas cards!

Here's the Tip of the Week, a day late!

When you make a card, make 2- that way you have 1 to give and 1 to keep for a sample. And it's not that much more work to make 2 of each piece when you have everything out.

Happy Stamping!
