Default If you're using SU for Christmas cards....

What set(s) are you using this year? I'm using White Christmas.

I have used that set for quite a few cards and have loved it. I participate in Kimberly Van Diepen's Stamps in the Mail program and that is the set we have been using. She came up with some super fun shaker cards.

I use a variety of stamps for my cards, whatever strikes my fancy. I just used Snowflake Soiree and Lovely as a Tree. LOVE those two sets!

I make several designs. Started today using a retired set (Snow Flurries) for OSW cards. Plan to use Bearing Gifts from the holiday mini. That's the only current SU set/stamp in my large holiday collection.

I really should use the Christmas stamp from the retired Greeting Card Kids. Just don't know if I'll be in the mood to watercolor the image multiple times. I've had it in mind for several years but some other idea always comes along and I put off using it!

I make one design to keep things simple. I keep a card front from each year and vary the images and techniques.

I'm using the trees and punch set like Amber.

But I think I'll also use the one (I can't remember the name) that has the pine branch, cone, and ornament. I have seen all kinds of loveliness with that set!

Then again...my upline had a huge retired sale not long ago and I got a couple of Christmas sets that I may have to consider too.

I usually make more than one design.

I think you are referring to Ornamental Pine. I love that set. I'm not normally drawn to pine images. I plan to buy this set and use it for my Christmas cards next year!

After nine years using about 90% SU I still didn't have LAAT until three weeks ago, and it got it by default! I had said at my friend's SU class that I still didn't have it after all this time, but I was sure if it ever retired that was when I'd finally get it.

My friend said someone had ordered it accidentally in clear mount and so she had an extra set, and did it want it? So now I finally own LAAT!

I'm using SU Ornamental Pine for some, and SU Bright & Beautiful for the rest.

Both of my choices have been used for for Oct. & November classes.

I ordered Ornamental Pine. I should be getting it tomorrow. Also the tree and punch bundle - can't remember the name right now.

I haven't thought about it yet, but based on my ordering over the last couple of months, my cards will apparently be a mix of Bright and Beautiful, White Christmas, Nature's Peace, Endless Wishes, and Festival of Trees... at this point, I'm just hoping the November photopolymer set coming out Tuesday and the next Paper Pumpkin kits aren't filled with cute holiday stuff or my indecisive brain may explode.

I am using Snow Swirled(picked it up at a garage sale this summer) and the ornament and matching punch set I bought several years ago.

I love Lovely as a Tree too and it is my go to set for sympathy cards, So simple yet elegant.

Most of mine are complete! I used the Wondrous Wreath bundle to make mine. But, I am considering ordering the Ornamental Pine for next year. I do have Beauty of the Season, but not feeling it...except the sentiments.

I'm using Peaceful Wishes (an old SU set that is similar in look/feel to Ornamental Pine). It makes some lovely rustic-style cards!

I'm planning on a bunch with the crazy santas! Love that set, Visions of Santa I think it's called. Cracks me up every time I look at them.

Of course I did also get my second fave from the mini, the partridge one... and threw in Nature's Peace too so I'm sure I'll make a few with those too. But the santas are the best!

Wanted to use my new stuff today, but have had back pain since Friday so that didn't happen. I have Tuesday off so maybe then. The tree punch from the Festival of Trees Bundle is back ordered. I guess I can stamp and punch later. LOL

My Kinsey is actually gone now, I lost her at 17 yo 2 years ago. I swear I still occasionally find cat hair in the adhesive though!

Once we get some cards made we should post them. I'm still making Thanksgiving cards. I always start my Christmas cards late! I don't have tons of people to send cards to.....only about 20.
