Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Seasons Greetings Card

Good Morning! Today I have Christmas Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle. I used two different styles of the trees – the stamped and die cut tree to create a card with pine trees in a snowy field. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock.

Stamp the outline image of the row of small trees from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the corresponding filler image using Old Olive ink after stamping off once. Use the sponge brayer to color the sky using Balmy Blue and Pool Party inks, with the darkest color on top.

Cut a panel of Whisper White with the snow bank die and adhere it to the stamped panel below the trees. Cut the large tree with the Pine Woods Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. Cut the Whisper White panel with the snow bank die and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines stamp set in Real Red ink in the corner.

Adhere the tree to the panel with dimensionals and adhere the stamped snow bank with dimensionals. Adhere the panel to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue and scatter the sky with adhesive backed snowflake sequins.

Stamp the outline image of the row of small trees from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink in the lower corner of a Whisper White panel. Stamp the corresponding filler image using Old Olive ink after stamping off once. Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Hope cling stamp set in Real Red ink and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The die cut tree from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle is the prettiest pine tree, and it goes so well with the stamped trees. And the curved dies are perfect for creating snow banks. Click on the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

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! 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!


And to celebrate the end of a great Stampin’ Up! year, I’m offering Double Wildflower Points!! If you don’t know about my Wildflower Points program, here’s how it works:
