Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Christmas Cheer Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another snowman Christmas Card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set and Let it Snow 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 used the Mojo Monday 526 Sketch Challenge layout for this card. I love the fishtail banners in this sketch and the Let it Snow DSP has so many pretty papers that look good together that I just had to make another snowman card with the layered look. Here is the sketch:

I embossed a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. I cut the different pieces of Let it Snow DSP and arranged them on the embossed panel according to the sketch and adhered them with liquid glue.

I stamped the happy snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set on a panel of Shimmery White card stock and cut it out with the large circle from the Stitched shapes dies. I colored it with Real Red, Pool Party, shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I added the little snow balls from the Let it Snow embellishment pack with liquid glue and then added a Real Red scalloped mat made from largest scalloped circle from the Layered circles dies. I adhered the layered circle to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set using Versamark ink on a strip of Real Red card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the ends of the label and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the little snowmen from the Let it Snow DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Coastal Cabana mat before attaching it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set is so cute and I have made so many different whimsical Christmas Cards with it. The Let it Snow designer series paper is also so cute and whimsical and the designs make the sweetest Christmas cards. I love the combination of the Real Red with the Coastal Cabana!

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Today I made a Christmas Card using the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set and Four Petal Punch for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. These flowers reminded me of poinsettias and I love poinsettia Christmas cards, so I made a background full of poinsettias for my card today.

We have a sketch challenge in the Blog Hop this week, and here is the sketch we are using:

I started by stamping 18 of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on shimmery white card stock. I punched them out with the four petal punch and colored them with the Cherry Cobbler Light Stampin’ Blends. I stamped 18 of the flower centers in Mango Melody ink on shimmery white card stock and fussy cut then with my paper snips. I adhered a flower center to each Cherry Cobbler flower.

I took a panel of Whisper White and embossed it with the tufted embossing folder and arranged the flowers all over the embossed panel, going off the edges. I adhered them with liquid glue and trimmed the flowers to be even with the embossed panel. I adhered it to a Basic Black mat with liquid glue and then to a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals.

I die cut the medium branch from the Beautiful Boughs dies from a panel of Mossy Meadow and the small pine cone pieces from Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I colored a strip of the Whisper White Flax ribbon with Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and trimmed the ends. I stamped the Sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Cherry Cobbler and die cut it with the small label from the Beautiful Boughs dies. I arranged the pieces on the bottom of the card front and adhered them with glue dots and dimensionals. I finished off the arrangement with a tied strip of the polka dot tulle ribbon and yellow gems.

I decorated the inside of the card by adhering a small die cut Mossy Meadow branch from the Beautiful Boughs dies and another flower to a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

It’s hard to see the diamond pattern from the Tufted Embossing folder or the shimmer on the flowers, but these textures add depth and richness to the background.

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas photopolymer stamp set for my card today and here is my card.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

My card design was inspired by the Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP465:

I started by adhering a strip of striped Let it Snow specialty designer series paper to a panel of snowflake paper and then adhering them both to a Real Red mat. I die cut a stitched square from Whisper White and ran it through the Winter Knit 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to a scalloped square and then to the Let it Snow background panel.

I die cut the cup from the Cup of Cheer dies from Real Red and the poinsettia from Whisper White. I adhered these together with the fine-tip glue pen. I die cut the candy cane from Real Red and Whisper White and adhered them together with the fine tip-glue pen. I adhered the candy cane to the back of the mug and attached them to the embossed panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas stamp set in Real Red on a panel of Whisper White and cut it out with a stitched circle die. I matted in a Real Red scalloped circle and added two Shaded Spruce die cut holly leaves and three Real Red enamel glitter dots. I adhered the label to the Let it Snow panel with dimensionals and then adhered the finished panel to a Coastal Cabana card base with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card with die cut Shaded Spruce holly leaves and Real Red berries on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas stamp set in Real Red and added a strip of the snowflake Let it Snow DSP to the bottom. I adhered it to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Seasons Greetings Card

Good Morning! Today made a country style Christmas card with the Come to Gather Designer Series paper, the pretty peacock gingham paper, and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs bundle. This bundle combines the Peaceful Boughs cling stamp set and the Beautiful Boughs dies at a 10% discount. 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 embossing Crumb cake Card stock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I lightly sponged it with crumb cake ink to enhance the texture and then adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat. I added the Pretty Peacock gingham paper from the Come to Gather DSP pack to the bottom and wrapped a length of the Come to Gather Crumb Cake Ribbon around the seam with snail adhesive. I added tape to the back to secure it. I adhered the layered panel to a Real Red card base with liquid glue.

I die cut the following using the Beautiful Boughs dies to make the arrangement:

  • A medium branch from Vellum card stock
  • Two small branches from Pretty Peacock card stock
  • Three small solid pine cones from Crumb Cake card stock
  • Three small textured pine cones from Soft Suede card stock

I glued the Soft Suede pine cones to the Crumb cake pine cones to get the layered look. I built the arrangement using glue dots to adhere the pieces, starting with the Vellum branch on the bottom, two Pretty Peacock branches next and topped it with the pine cones. I tied a short length of the Crumb Cake ribbon in a knot to make a faux bow and adhered it to the arrangement with glue dots.

I stamped the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Real Red ink on a scrap of Whisper White. I cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies. I added two Pretty Peacock faceted dots to the label and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I then nestled the pine cone arrangement under the label and adhered it with glue dots.

On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock gingham paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the small branch from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Pretty Peacock after stamping off twice. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Real Red ink. I matted the panel with Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I love country decor and the gingham and natural elements of the wood planks, pine cones and branches give this card a comfy holiday feel – all you need is a warm fireplace!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Merry Christmas to All Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing some cards that I made for my Facebook Live video yesterday afternoon. These are simple, easy to make cards that use Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost specialty designer series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas to All stamp set and coordinating dies.

The Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost specialty designer series paper has beautiful winter images of nature with snow and ice. The back of the paper has designs in silver foil and white. The Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas to All photopolymer stamp set has a beautiful and elegant font and many Christmas words that can be used in combination to convey many sentiments and the coordinating dies use the same beautiful font. When used with silver foil, they look beautiful with the Feels Like Frost paper. Here’s the video. Please excuse the first few minutes when I’m trying to ‘unstick’ my computer.

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

The holidays are coming quick and high impact easy-to-make cards are real important! It gives us the opportunity to give something special to our loved ones while maintaining balance in our busy lives.
