Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Merry Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have a modern Christmas Tree Christmas card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies and a selection of Garden Green designer series papers from several sources. The large tree with the gold foil comes from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack. The next tree comes from the Poinsettia Place designer series paper pack and the last three come from the ‘Tis The Season 6″x6″ designer series paper pack. My goal was to find different patterns of DSP, but they all had to be Garden Green! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cherry Cobbler striped ‘Tis The Season DSP to a Real Red panel to give it more stiffness since it is adhered with dimensionals. I cut the thicker strip of gold foil with the circle border die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the thin gold foil strip to the top of the panel.

I cut the large tree from the gold pine branch card from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies. I used one of the smaller dies from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies to cut trees from the ‘Tis The Season and Poinsettia Place Garden Green designer series papers. I arranged the trees on the striped Cherry Cobbler panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the large tree to the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark Ink on the strip of Real Red and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered the embossed strip to the bottom front of Real Red card base with liquid glue. I adhered the tree panel to a the front of the card base with dimensionals, covering the seam of the label. I sprinkles some red rhinestones across the top of the card to give it some sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut another tree from the gold pine branch card from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack using the smaller tree from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies and adhered it next to the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Cherry Cobbler striped ‘Tis The Season DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I love the modern look of triangle trees on Christmas cards, so I was thrilled when the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies came out. I hope you like it too!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Ombre Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Instead of using the wonderful dies, I just used the gorgeous large sunflower stamp and paired it with an ombre technique with some touches of gold. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I will also edit the video and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. The edited video has been posted on my YouTube Channel and you can find it here.

I stamped three of the large sunflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Using the sponge brayer, I colored the panel starting with Cajun Craze on the bottom and adding in Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and So Saffron inks. I colored the darkest colors on the bottom and the lightest color on top, overlapping the colors as I went. I also used the sponge brayer to add So Saffron ink to the Whisper White label. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the label. I adhered the label to the flower panel and adhered the panel to a gold foil mat.

I wrapped gold trim around the panel just above the label, making a bow, and finished the panel with three gold metallic pearls. I adhered the dark woodgrain In Good Taste designer series paper to the front of an early Espresso card base and popped the flower panel on top with dimensionals.

I stamped another sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I added some Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee ink with the sponge brayer and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The soft touches of gold with the dark wood grain give the card an elegant look, especially when paired with the beautiful sentiment!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello Fall Card

Good Morning! Here’s a Fall hello card made with the pretty leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle, the Playful Alphabet Dies and the wonderful Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock Mat. I cut three each of the F-A-L-L letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies and adhered them together so that each letter was three deep. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Best Year cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of Bumblebee card stock and cut it out with the small long stitched rectangle die using the two step die cutting method.

I stamped six maple leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze card stock and cut them out with the coordinating punch. I cut a panel of vellum with the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered the letters leaves and label to the vellum panel.

I adhered the vellum panel to the DSP panel with glue dots placed behind the letters, leaves and label. I made a loopy bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the label. I finished the panel with three Bumblebee enamel dots and popped the panel to the front of a Bumblebee card base with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the last three of the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn punched maple leaves. I added a Pretty Peacock mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love using vellum on cards and I also love die cut words, so this card combines two of my favorites with the pretty Plaid Tidings paper for a card to welcome Fall!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The beautiful leaf cluster stamps and dies in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle are wonderful in all the different shades of green. But I have been impressed by the Fall take on these leaves and have wanted to use them in different colors. We have a color challenge in our Blog Hop today and its the perfect occasion to use these stamps in different colors. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Like I said we have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. Be sure to check out all the pretty projects in the Blog Hop!

I started by stamping six leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White after stamping off once. I cut them out with the coordinating die. I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to a Whisper White mat.

I punched three small leaf clusters from the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty designer series paper and cut two Forever Flourishing dies from Cajun Craze card stock. I arranged them with the stamped and die cut leaves on the embossed panel. I adhered them with liquid glue and added a piece of dimensional behind the tops of the small Blackberry Bliss leaves in the front to add dimension. I wrapped a length of Vanilla ribbon around the bottom of the arrangement securing it in the back and tied a piece of gold cord around the ribbon making a bow on the side.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Whisper White panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I popped it on the panel with dimensionals and adhered the panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three clear Wonderful Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped some leaves in Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze on the top and bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So I got all five Challenge colors in the card along with some touches of gold. I’m really impressed that these leaves are also so beautiful in these colors!
