Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Christmas To Remember Card

Happy Saturday! I pulled out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia dies along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember cling stamp set to make today’s Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Today’s card was inspired by a couple of challenges and was a lot of fun! First is the pretty sketch challenge in Hand Stamped Sentiments #374:

But I was also intrigued by the wonderful color challenge in the Global Design Project #313:

I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Basic Black mat. I adhered another strip of the same DSP to another mat and adhered them both to a panel of black and white gingham Pattern Party Host designer series paper. I adhered the layered panel to the larger Sahara Sand DSP panel and popped it on the front of a Real Red card base.

I die cut another Real Red panel with the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia dies – the largest petal cluster, the medium cluster and the tiny petal cluster. I used the embossing petal die inserts to give the flower texture when die cutting. I adhered the petal clusters together with glue dots. I cut one of each of the poinsettia leaves with the leaf dies and their embossing insets and adhered the leaves to the back of the flower with glue dots. I adhered the flower to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic white and cut it out with the label from the Seasonal Labels dies. I adhered it to the card front, overlapping the flower with dimensionals and glue dots. I added Bumblebee matte dots to the flower center, black dots to the card front and a bow made from black and white gingham to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped a leaf sprig from the Tidings and Trimmings photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow under the sentiment and adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

I love the rustic feel that the Sahara Sand and black and white gingham give this card! Reminds me of handmade Christmas ornaments and popcorn garland on a Christmas tree. And I love the flowers that the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia dies make – they are the best ever!! But let’s have fun with Halloween first!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You cling stamp set to make a simple, elegant thinking of you card for today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Brushed Gold metallic foil with the Stitched Rectangle die. I used the Stitched Greenery die on another Mossy Meadow panel to get the die cut leafy texture on the center panel. I cut it down to 2-13/16″ x 4-3/16″ making sure I had a 5-1/4″ strip for the inside trim and adhered it to the Brushed Gold panel with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the long label from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and cut the small leaf from cork paper using the stitched leaves dies. I adhered the leaf with a glue dot, tucking it under the label. I finished the card front with Gold Metallic dots and a Linen Thread bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the branch from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Bumblebee on a Basic White panel. I stamped part of the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow next to the branch. I cut down the remaining die cut leafy Mossy Meadow panel to 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered it to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Don’t you think the embossed background goes really well with the die cut panel? And I love the sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set. I think this design would also make a wonderful masculine birthday card with the appropriate sentiments.

Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Christmas Card

Good Morning! It’s been such a busy week, I haven’t been able to keep up with my cards, but I was finally able to sneak in a quick card for today. I used the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts bundle to make this sparkly Christmas Card that is full of texture with the Ombre specialty paper and White Velvet sheets. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the smallest Layering Circle die to cut out a moon with the lightest yellow Ombre specialty paper and adhered it to the dark blue Ombre specialty paper panel with liquid glue. I applied adhesive sheets to the back of a Basic white panel and used the Inspiring Canopy dies from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts bundle to cut out the trees. I inked up the trees with Versamark ink directly from the pad and sprinkled them with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I removed the backing from the adhesive sheet and adhered the trees to the panel over the moon. This results in a shiny white trees that really pop against the sparkly background night sky.

I used the ground die from the Inspiring Canopy dies to cut the ground from a strip of Snowy White velvet paper and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and wrapped a length of silver cord around the bottom and made a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts cling stamp set in Night of Navy on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the pretty Encircled in Beauty die and popped it on the panel with dimensionals. I popped the panel on the front of a Night of Navy card base. I accented the sentiment with two Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Night of Navy ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Smoky Slate next to the tree and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Nighttime snowy scenes are one of my favorite themes for Christmas Cards. In this card, there is so much contrasting texture from the sparkly background to the shiny trees to the velvety snow. I was surprised how easy it was to emboss the trees – I just held them at the bottom where they are covered up with the snow – but they really make a statement with the embossed shine. The sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts stamp set are simple and elegant and complement the scene perfectly.

Stampin’ Up! Love Of Leaves Fall Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Yesterday afternoon I pulled out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Love Of Leaves photopolymer stamp set and the beautiful Stitched Leaves dies to make a pair of fall cards. The Stitched leaves dies have pretty stitching on the outside of the die so you can create a pretty stitched leaf and an outline for the leaves with a pretty stitched edge. So I used the dies to make two cards from one cut. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

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

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

For the first card, I embossed a panel of Cinnamon Cider with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base. I cut a panel of Beauty of the Earth designer series paper with the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I cut the large leaf from the Stitched leaves dies with the inset from a Cajun Craze panel and used the outside frame for this card. I wrapped it with Linen Thread and made a bow and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I finished it off with a label stamped with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves stamp set stamped in Misty Moonlight on Cinnamon Cider. I cut it out with the small, long stitched rectangle die using the two step method and adhered it to the card front.

For the second card, I embossed a Soft Suede panel with the Bard 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Soft Suede card base. I cut panels of Beauty of the Earth DSP and Bumblebee DSP with the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue. I cut out the long leaf from the Stitched Leaves dies in Mossy Meadow and the small leaf from Cork paper using the dies with their insets. I adhered these leaves with the Cajun Craze leaf from the first card to the card front.

I finished off the card with a label stamped with the sentiment from the In Bloom photopolymer stamp set stamped in Soft Suede on Cinnamon Cider and cut out with the Stitched Rectangles die. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off both card fronts with Brushed Metallic Dots.

For the inside of the cards, I inked up the large leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Love Of Leaves stamp set with Cajun Craze ink and stamped off twice. Then I stamped the leaf in the middle of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I made the insides of both cards the same, but you could easily add inside sentiments that go with the occasion – or not.

The outside die stitching makes the Stitched Leaves dies very special because you don’t always get the nice decorative edging. This makes it easy to creatively use negative space in card making – you could even use it for a shaker card! The coordinating Stampin’ Up! Love Of Leaves stamp set has stamps for pretty shaded leaves and wonderful sentiments. We’re so lucky to have so many options for beautiful Fall stamp sets right now! I can’t decide on which I love best!

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Hello and Happy Tuesday! The Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set has been a favorite for a couple of years with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and wonderful sentiments. And it has a cute plaid Christmas tree, so I had to combine it with the pretty Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper before the end of the month. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Garden Green Christmas tree Peaceful Prints designer series paper to the left side of a Basic Black Mat. I adhered a panel of the Real Red snowflake DSP to the right side. I wrapped a length of the black and white gingham ribbon around the seam, securing it in the back and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base with dimeensionals.

I stamped two of the plaid Christmas Trees from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and punched them out with the Pine Tree punch. I stamped the tree again in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Garden Green card stock and punched it out with the Pine Tree punch. I cut the little star from the Christmas Trimmings dies from Bumblebee card stock and adhered it to the top with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Real Red on the bottom of a Basic White panel and cut it out with the third largest Scalloped Contours die. I adhered the light plaid Christmas Trees with liquid glue and the dark tree with dimensionals. I decorated the tree with Matte Decorative dots. I tied a knot in another short length of gingham ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot before adhering the scalloped panel to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel and stamped the plaid tree in Garden Green in the bottom corner. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Garden Green Christmas Tree paper from the Peaceful Prints DSP and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Doesn’t the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set plaid Christmas tree look cute with the Peaceful Prints DSP? Lots of plaids in Red and Green with touches of black make a simple, cute little rustic Christmas Card. And the pretty Peaceful Prints designer series paper is only available through the end of Sale A Bration!

Stampin’ Up! September Paper Pumpkin Kit – Haunts & Harvest

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! September Paper Pumpkin kit this week and made some of the cute treat boxes to start getting ready for Halloween.

The Stampin’ Up! September Paper Pumpkin kit makes 12 cute Fall themed treat holders. They’re pretty roomy at approximately 2-1/2″ in diameter, and you can turn them into Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween or leave them as pumpkins or apples for Fall events. Here are the contents of the Kit:

And the kit comes with a Soft Succulent Stampin’ Spot and a sweet little photopolymer stamp set.

I made a couple of Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween and an apple with the pretty Thank You sentiment! I will make the rest as Jack-O-Lanterns to hold my Trick Or Treating candy.

And here is what the pretty wheelbarrow looks like! Click on the picture to download a PDF of the instructions, or watch the video below. The box has lines to cut out the parts and pretty black stickers to adhere the parts together.

Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to assemble the treat boxes.

And here’s a video on how to create the cute wheelbarrow from the box.

Paper Pumpkin publishes a different kit each month. They are usually card kits, but sometimes the kits will be little containers or other projects. On the first day of the ordering period, they publish a description so you will know the theme and whether it will be a card kit or other type of project. They will give clues about the design, but the kit will be a surprise when it arrives. You need to place your order or subscribe by the 10th of each month and the kit will be delivered to your mailbox before the end of the month. And then, the crafting fun begins!!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a Fall Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer cling stamp set and the Sale A Bration Summer Shadows dies. I paired it with the beautiful Blackberry Beauty specialty designer series paper for a rich Fall look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

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

I adhered a strip of the wood grain In Good Taste designer series paper to the side of a Blackberry Beauty specialty designer series paper and adhered them to a Cinnamon Cider mat. I adhered a gold foil cutout from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack to top seam and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base.

I used the Sale A Bration Summer Shadows dies to cut out the flowers and leaves. This is a pretty set of dies that coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set and is available for free with a $100 purchase before shipping and taxes. I cut two of the large flowers, one of the small flowers and three sets of leaves. I cut the solid flowers from Polished Pink, the detailed flowers from Rich Razzleberry and the leaves from Cinnamon Cider. I adhered the detailed die cuts to the solid die cuts with liquid glue to make the pretty layered die cuts.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set in Versamark ink in the lower corner of an Early Espresso panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the embossing powder with my heat tool until shiny. I cut the sentiment out with the Tasteful Labels die and adhered it to the card. I arranged the die cuts and adhered the leaves and small flower with glue dots and the large flowers with dimensionals. I accented the center of the large flowers with shimmery Opal Rounds and the label with gold metallic pearls. I finished the arrangement with a gold trim bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set in Cinnamon Cider on a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry sprig next to the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Blackberry Beauty specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Blackberry Beauty specialty designer series paper is such a contrast of gold elegance with rustic themes, an I thought I would add to that by trimming it with wood grain. I love the Summer Shadows die cut flowers and the gold embossed sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set is the perfect finishing touch.

Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card III

Good Morning! I have been having fun with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set, making Christmas cards this past week and here’s another take. This time, I stamped an evergreen forest in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and accented it with touches of gold! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Balmy Blue card base. I used my blending brush to apply Balmy Blue ink on the top of a Basic White panel to color a sky. Then I used the brusk to blend in some Pacific Point ink around the outside edge to intensify the color.

I stamped the two largest trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent to make the forest on the bottom. I kept the dark trees in the bottom and in the foreground and the lighter trees behind it, using the stamped off trees to make the forest fade into the sky. I cut the panel with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped the layered panel with gold twine, making a bow in the corner and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum card stock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the label with the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered it to the tree panel with glue dots placed under the embossing. I finished the label with two gold holly leaves and three red rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So after playing with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set for these last three cards, I feel like I’m starting to make a dent in my Christmas card list. And I’m really happy with how these cards came out! This is a great stamp set for making Christmas cards!

Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card II Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I am sharing the card that I made yesterday afternoon during my Facebook Live. I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set to make another Christmas Tree Christmas card. This is very similar to the one from yesterday’s post, but I wanted to use the pretty ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the stamp set on the card front. You can find the supplies I used 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Versamark ink on the bottom of a panel of a Soft Succulent Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny. This way I used the festive sentiment on the card front!

I cut a Basic White panel with the long fancy die from the Ornate layers dies and adhered a strip of Sahara Sand starry Trimmings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front. I adhered the strip to the Soft Succulent DSP and adhered it all to a Basic White mat. I wrapped a double length of linen thread around the panel and tied a bow and adhered it to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Soft Succulent on a Basic White panel and stamped the large star on top of the tree in Sahara Sand. I adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals. I trimmed the tree with small white pearls and added a large pearl to the center of the star.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Evening Elegance stamp set in Sahara Sand on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine boughs in the upper corner and added a strip of Trimmings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I wasn’t sure if this color palette was going to be festive enough without red, but I do like the soft, rustic look. The stamped trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set are really pretty, and they are great to play with different colors and layering techniques. I really love the sentiments too! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card I

Earlier this month I did a post with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance bundle with pretty cards designed by the Stampin’ Up! Design team. I finally got my hands on this pretty stamp set and made a couple of layered Christmas cards with them, pairing them with the pretty Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. Here is the first card and I will show you how to make the second card during my Facebook Live this afternoon at 1:00 ET. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I die cut a strip of Real Red with the long fancy frame from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered a strip of Evening Evergreen Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the top. I adhered this layered panel to a Basic White Tidings of Christmas DSP panel and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped the layered DSP panel with a length of real red ribbon, securing it in the back and adhered the panel to the front of a Real Red card base with Dimensionals.

I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large star on top of the tree with Crushed Curry ink and adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat. I stamped the sentiment from the Penguin Place photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on the right side of a Basic White mat and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels Die.

I adhered the label with glue dots under the lacy strip and adhered the tree panel to the card front with dimensionals. I made a bow with the real red ribbon and adhered it next to the tree with glue dots and decorated the tree with red rhinestone gems. I put a large yellow rhinestone on the star and another red rhinestone on the label to finish the front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the bough from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen on the bottom of a Basic White panel and stamped the sentiment in Real Red. I adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the card.

The large tree from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set reminds me of another tree from a Stampin’ Up! retired favorite, so I decided to make this card with a traditional layered DSP design. You can’t go wrong giving a card with a decorated Christmas tree!

Join me for a Facebook Live this Afternoon!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to make another pretty Christmas tree card with this same stamp set. Look forward to seeing you then!
