since I make several designs, I have done both.. I have the snowflakes and Ornaments folders.. the Ornament is basically the card, and the snowflakes is being used as a layer.

I have used my CB for some of my cards. I got burned out doing one desgn over and over again so this year I am making different designed cards. I have used all SU stuff on some, some with CB, and some with my Cricut.

I only make one or two each of my Christmas cards. (I get bored easily..) The card I made today uses the SU Linen stamp...

BTW, I think SCS is beyond being touchy about the SU thing here. All is good!!

my thoughts exactly!

Though I don't know if I will use either...I have the snowflakes, snow dots, and ornaments folders, but not sure if they'll fit into 'my plan'...though I don't have a design - I have a rough idea of what I'd like to do...now to put it to paper...

No CB background for me as I don't own one yet. I've been placing some bids on Ebay, but am too cheap to win yet.

I'm actually going to finish the cards I started LAST YEAR, and send them THIS year! LOL The background is stamped (not a BG stamp), imagine that!

I usually do ALL the same card......however, this year I'm going to TOTALLY mix it up! I have a few of the newer Christmas CB folders and plan on using them! I have some GREAT new patterned paper by K&Co.that I bought @ my LSS that I plan on using too! And some of the great PP from last year by Basic Grey....

I decided I just wanted to make about 5 of each card this year. I make only about 50 cards, so that'll keep it interesting for me, and I'll be able to complete 5-10 cards each day and that means I'll get them out right after Thanksgiving!

I use both as I don't have a set design for my Christmas cards. Each card is different and however many I end up making is how many people get Christmas cards from us!

I used the Cuttlebug on the one Ive designed so far. CASED it from somewhre of course. they are so simple. I used the little village scene and added some dazzling diamonds and layered it on black and then on a white card. Sooooo simple. I will be using other CB backgrounds also.

I used both. The background stamp is on the envelope (I use a brayer to get it somewhat even) and the CB folder is on the card. I included a copy of the movie to my best-est friends and family!

With so many mentions of CB embossed paper here can I just jump in and ask someone to tell me about them. I am new to stamping and just got the BS...LOVE IT! I keep seeing the Swiss dots pattern on cards I love but was looking in the Sizzix section of Michael's for it with no luck and now am thinking it is something from CB? I want to do textures but don't like any of the plates in the Sizzix texture starter kit. What do I need and where should I get it?
And don't throw stones, but I just bought my photo cards online. No way was I going to make 150 hand stamped cards. I did stamp a bird on all the envelopes though.

I haven't yet designed my Christmas cards for this year

But, last year, it was a CB folder! In fact, it was the main image. I just LOVE that snowflake folder! You can see it here: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=73383

Heehee - this made me giggle. I don't blame you for not wanting to make that many cards!

I used two different Cuttlebug folders to make my cards this year. Due to budget cuts, I had to choose something I already had on hand instead of ordering a new set.

I made some christmas cards for a local swap and I love the CB and also the background stamps...but for this card I actually used the Scandinavian wheel as a background. You can use both...

I'm with Joan! I can't make more than about 3 or 4 cards of the same or I get totally bored. Everytime I stamp a card for a challenge lately I have been trying to make it Christmas so I can kill two birds with one stone

I have used my CB folders in my Big Shot but I use a variety of stuff.

I do not own a CB. or any Background Stamps.

And I usually make different Christmas Cards.

I love using DP, versa mark ink with stamp for making BG.
