Stampin' Up! Beachy Little Christmas

The stamp set I used today will be available Friday, September 1, in the Stampin' Up! Holiday 2017-2018 catalog. I have had so much fun with this set. I used every green that I had from SU. Here you go...

My cardbase is Emerald Envy, first mat is Pistacchio Pudding (retired), second mat is Mint Macaron and the art panel is Shimmery Whisper White. I only colored Kermie's shack so it would really stand out (plus I was tired!). I used Garden Green, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Lemon Lime Twist, Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow inks. It's hard to distinguish some of the greens.

The Adirondack chair was die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies in Lemon Lime Twist. Kermit was stamped on Always Artichoke and fussy cut. He is from the retired Love You Lots stamp set. The sentiment was printed on my computer and punched with the Pretty Label Punch. With the piece from the chair, I made Kermit's shack sign...waste not want not! My palms were done in Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Melon Mambo.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with the inside...I'm open to suggestions!

Today my husband's port was successfully replaced. We are so thankful and grateful to the staff who worked so hard to make it so. Tuesday he will have surgery again to remove a cancerous growth on his head. Hopefully, that will be the end for a while (except for chemo every three weeks and weekly labs) and we will be able to enjoy a week in Disney for our 48th anniversary! We hope to see a few Kermits there because we'll be staying at the Ft. Wilderness cabins!

Thanks for looking!


  1. So cute! Love Kermit sitting outside his beach cottage! Very happy to hear that Perry's port replacement went well! Will be thinking good thoughts for next week. :)

  2. How cute!! Love your little frog at the beach, your cottages are just perfect as the backdrop. :)
