Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Card

Good Morning! Here is the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. It’s been a while since I did a video and it was good to get back into the swing of things – my plan is to continue to do this weekly on Sunday afternoons.

This bundle is so festive and fun! It goes well with the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper, you can even use the dies to cut out candy canes from the DSP! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

Use the large striped background die from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle to cut a white glimmer paper panel and adhere the die cut stripes to the front of a Sweet Sorbet Card base. Cut a panel of Basic White with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle dies and a panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP with the second largest stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the circles together and adhere them to the center of the card with liquid glue.

Use the Christmas Banners dies to cut a panel of Soft Succulent card stock with the pine sprig die and a panel of Shaded Spruce with the leaf sprig die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp two of the small leaf sprigs from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp the candy cane in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. Adhere the candy cane to the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White. Cut it out with the wide banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. Loop a length of white baker’s twine through the top of a Jingle Bell trinket and make a bow. Adhere the jingle bell to the card front with a glue dot. Finish the card with three dots of red pearlized enamel accents and let them dry for about 1 hour so they don’t smudge (I did the inside of the card first and then had a finished card when the dots dried!).

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel. Stamp the little leaf sprig in Garden Green under the sentiment and adhere a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love candy canes and always put them on my Christmas Tree, so the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes is perfect to celebrate the holiday! The sentiments are wonderful for holiday greetings inside and outside your card and when paired with the Christmas Banners bundle and the Sweet Christmas DSP, you have everything you need for a variety of beautiful Christmas cards, tags and favors!

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Cards

Good Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had our Inkin’ Krew Quarterly Team meeting yesterday and had fun making beautiful Christmas cards with the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. Inkin’ Krew teammates Darryl Robbins from Saginaw, MI, Carol Buckalew from Claymont, DE and I designed cards and led the team in making the cards for the virtual team meeting on Zoom. You can find the supplies we used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I designed the first card which doesn’t use any of the dies in the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. I stamped the berries first in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler and then masked them before stamping the leaves in Shaded Spruce, both stamped off and full strength.

I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and then adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and Shaded Spruce card base.

I stamped berries and leaves using the same berry mask and stamped the sentiment in Real Red for the inside panel.

And I even made an envelope stamped with more berries and leaves.

Darryl designed this fabulous slimline easel card using the beautiful Boughs of Holly designer series paper and the dies from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. The card base is Mossy Meadow and the mats are Cherry Cobbler. The gorgeous label die is cut from Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment and berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The leaves stamped in Mossy Meadow on Mossy Meadow card stock go beautifully with the pretty DSP.

The inside sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow and a berry branch Textural Element colored in Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends props the card front for display!

This slimline card fits the new Stampin’ Up! slimline envelopes as well!

Carol designed this gorgeous Z-fold card and also used the beautiful Boughs of Holly DSP along with the beautiful dies from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. The berries are die cut from Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler and the pine sprig accents are die cut from Soft Succulent and Basic White.

An Evening Evergreen square with striped Boughs of Holly DSP set off the gorgeous Brushed Metallic foil leaves and gold metallic ribbon. Basic White and Soft Succulent die cut pine sprigs and Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler die cut berries are tucked in with the gold. It’s all topped off with the sentiment label, stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

She finished the inside with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and covered the envelope flap with the Boughs of Holly DSP.

I love how the versatility of this fabulous bundle is highlighted by these wonderful Christmas cards! You can stamp the berries and leaves, or just die cut them or do both and it comes out beautiful!

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I love a Christmas Card with a pretty Christmas card and I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree photopolymer stamp set for my Christmas Card today. And since it’s September, the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Partners promotion has begun and I used the coordinating Tree Trimmings dies to cut out my tree for the card front. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I used the 4th smallest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a Real Red panel of Sweetest Christmas designer series paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I used the next largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a striped panel of DSP and adhered it to a Real Red mat before adhering it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large Christmas Tree from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Garden Green on Soft Sea Foam card stock. I inked up the smaller detailed tree stamp in Garden Green and stamped it off before stamping over the tree. Isn’t it pretty how the three shades of green give texture and dimension to the tree? I cut out the stamped tree with the outline die from the Tree Trimmings dies. I cut a tree stand from Crumb Cake card stock and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I cut a star from Crushed Curry and adhered it to the tree top with a glue dot. I used dimensionals to adhere the tree and star to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Real Red ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the pretty label die from the Tree Trimmings dies and adhered it to a Garden Green ribbon with glue dots. I adhered the label and ribbon to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and decorated the tree with Red Rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fir sprig from the Christmas Banners photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green ink next to the sentiment and adhered a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I’m so excited about the Perfect Partners promotion, bringing coordinating dies to some favorite stamp sets. So be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle? It’s such a happy and cheerful bundle for Christmas cards, tags and treat packages! I paired it with the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper, which has a sheet of candy canes that you can cut with the candy cane dies! So perfect!! 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 Sweetest Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue. I cut another panel with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a Garden Green mat and adhered the layered panel to the card front with liquid glue.

I cut a candy cane from the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper with the coordinating die from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle and cut a Basic White panel wit the same die. I adhered them together with liquid glue to make it stiffer. I cut a pair of round leaf sprigs from Garden Green and a pair of fir sprigs from Pear Pizzazz using the dies from the Christmas Banner dies. I used the small branch die to cut a Crumb Cake panel. I adhered the leaf sprigs and small branch to the card with dots of liquid glue and adhered the candy cane with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I cut it out with second smallest long Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I added red rhinestones to the tips of the Crumb Cake small branch.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the round leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Garden Green on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered a matted strip of DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I didn’t use the candy cane stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle, and I’m so glad that the dies coordinate with large candy canes in the Sweetest Christmas DSP! And there are stamps and dies for candy canes that curve in both directions! The sentiments in this set are simple and perfect for both inside and outside of the card – I’ll be using these a lot!

Stampin’ Up! Leaves Of Holly for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card, I made a Fun Fold – an accordion card made with designer series paper using a design from Patty Bennett a few years back. I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle with the gorgeous Boughs of Holly designer series paper. This is a wonderful way to show off pretty DSP and you get to see both sides! You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge this week and even though my card front has the back side of the DSP on the left side, I decided it still meets the challenge since it’s part of the same sheet of the background paper:

I scored a 5-1/4″ x 11-3/4″ panel of Boughs of Holly designer series paper at 1-3/4″, 4-3/4″ and 7-3/4″ on the long side and folded it accordion style. I adhered the large panel to a Real Red 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel with liquid glue. This serves as my fun fold card base.

I cut another Boughs of Holly DSP with the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the front flap with liquid glue, being careful not to glue it to the second fold. I cut the two detailed holly leaves from the Holly Berry Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle and adhered them to the die cut panel with dots of liquid glue. I used a paint brush from my stash to brush on red Pearlized Enamel effects on Real Red. I used circular strokes and this gave the panel a little shine and resembles berries. I cut it out with the solid berry die and cut a Real Red glimmer panel with the detailed die. I adhered the berries together with liquid glue and adhered it to the card with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set in Real Red ink on Basic White and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and finished it with iridescent pearls.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small holly leaf in stamped off Soft Succulent ink under the sentiment and adhered the panel to the left side of the inside of the card so that it’s covered by the accordion folds.

The Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle has such elegant, graceful holly leaves, both stamped and die cut. Using glimmer papers for the leaves makes really festive Christmas cards! And I hope you like this fun fold – it’s a great way to show off pretty DSP

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

Good Morning! Here’s another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season and Christmas To Remember stamp sets. These are two favorites from last year that returned in the new Annual Catalog and I’ve paired it with the pretty poinsettia paper in the new Boughs of Holly designer series paper. 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 Boughs of holly designer series paper to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set in Real Red ink on a strip of Basic White. I cut it out with the long Seasonal Labels die and adhered it to the card front with mini glue dots.

I stamped the greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating Seasonal Labels dies. I stamped the small pinecone in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede (This uses the two-step stamping method with a background and detailed stamp), three pine sprigs in Soft Succulent, the long leaf sprig in Garden Green and the berry sprig in Garden Green and Real Red (another two-step set of stamps). I arranged them together and and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I made a Garden Green bow and adhered it to the card front with glue dots and finished the card with three gold adhesive sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pinecone from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and covered it with a mask to stamp the pine sprigs in Soft Succulent. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set has beautiful stamps for making Christmas arrangements. It’s easy and quick and it looks great against the poinsettia filled DSP! It’s great to have the coordinating dies in the Seasonal Labels dies. I’m so glad that this set has carried over from last season!

Stampin’ Up! Trees For Sale Christmas Card

Good Morning! It’s 6 months until Christmas, so It’s time to start making those Christmas cards! I’ve made a couple, but I need about 50, so it’s not too early to get started. Today’s card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Trees For Sale photopolymer stamp set. And I also used the coordinating Tree Lot Dies that are available as a Sale-A-Bration free item with a $100 order (before shipping and taxes). 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 Boughs of holly designer series paper to a Basic White mat. I used a blending brush to apply Soft Succulent ink to a panel of Silver dotted DSP – another free Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 order – and cut it out with the second smallest Stitched Rectangle die. I cut the die cut in half lengthwise and adhered the pieces to the DSP panel 1/2″ from each side. I wrapped the panel with silver mesh ribbon, adhering it in the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with dimensionals.

I cut a Basic White panel with the 4th smallest Stitched Rectangle die and embossed it with the boughs from the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals, covering the split between the smaller Stitched Rectangle die cut. Finally, I’m ready to stamp and die cut the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Trees For Sale stamp set. There are three sizes of trees, and each tree has a detailed and background stamp. I found it easiest to stamp the detailed stamp first in the darker color and stamp the background stamp over it in a lighter color. I used Evening Evergreen with Soft Succulent on the large tree and Mossy Meadow with Pear Pizzazz on the smaller trees. The smallest tree uses stamped off Pear Pizzazz. The shading with this two step stamping is really pretty! I cut the trees out with the coordinating dies from the Sale-A-Bration Tree Lot Die and adhered them to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots.

I wanted a smaller sentiment for my design, so I used the Merry Christmas from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. I stamped it in Versamark Ink on Soft Succulent and sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the small long stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished off the trees with small silver pearls.

For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Peaceful Deer stamp set in Smoky Slate on Basic White. I the little dog prints from the Stampin’ Up! Trees For Sale stamp set in Smoky slate around the bottom. I used my blending Brush to apply Soft Succulent ink to a strip of silver dotted DSP and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered a large tree stamped in Evening Evergreen and stamped off Soft Succulent and I stamped the little dog in Crumb Cake. I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add black dots to stamp on the dog’s back before stamping it and added the eye after stamping. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This card is a great example of the versatility of the Stampin’ Up! Trees for Sale stamp set. The card front is elegant with touches of Silver while the inside is whimsical with the dog prints and cute dog in the snow. And there’s so much more in these two coordinating items – the cute trailer dies, the light poles with lights, the cute sign and the detailed tree dies. And I need to make a card with the cute die cut Charlie Brown tree! So check it out and have fun making Christmas cards!

Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness Christmas Card

Good Morning! I have had no ideas for Christmas cards, so I cased today’s card from the new July-December Mini Catalog using the new Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness bundle. It was fun to play with new products and this is a neat bundle with a modern take on Christmas ornaments and tree boughs. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And the catalog card was similar to the sketch in Freshly Made Sketches #545, so I made adaptations to match the sketch here:

But I just noticed that my sentiment is in the wrong place! Ugh!! Oh Well, that’s what the week’s been like. Check out the cards that are entered in this challenge anyway because this sketch is really nice and the cards are pretty.

I started by adhering a panel of the pretty Snowflake Specialty Vellum to a Granny Apple Green card base. This vellum is the perfect background for any snowy scene you want make because the snowflakes are flocked!! it’s so pretty. I used liquid glue behind the panels and behind the larger snowflakes on the exposed left side. Then I stamped the Basic White panels with the bough stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs of Happiness photopolymer stamp set. I used Garden Green for the line images and stamped off Granny Apple Green for the lighter backgrounds.

I adhered the stamped bough panels to the card front with Stampin’ Seal, using a lot to make sure the panels adhered to the flocked background. I stamped the ornaments from the Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled them with Gold embossing powder and heat set them with my heat tool until they were shiny. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped the filler stamps over the ornaments in Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and stamped off Tahitian Tide, and wiped the ink off the embossing with a tissue. Then I did the round ornament again and fussy cut the middle circle and adhered it with liquid glue so it would have a white background (I should have masked it off before stamping the Tahitian Tide – next time!).

I adhered the ornaments to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness stamp set in Versamark ink on Granny Apple Green card stock. I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and shook off the excess. I heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny and punched it out with the Label Me Fancy punch. I made a loopy bow from gold trim and adhered it to the back and popped the label on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with sparkle gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I stamped boughs around the corners in Garden Green and stamped off Granny Apple Green like the front and added an ornament in Tahitian Tide.

That’s my second Christmas card for the season!! I’m happy to have played with the Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness bundle – it’s a really nice set! It’s got both ornaments and boughs and you have die cut versions as well as stamped versions, so it’s really versatile. Plus you’ve got inside and outside holiday sentiments in that fun casual font. And don’t forget that flocked snow fall vellum – I’ll definitely be using it again.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Sneak Peek

Good Morning! I’m so excited about the new Stampin’ Up! July – December 2022 Mini Catalog opening on Friday! There are so many wonderful new bundles and returning holiday products, and it’s coming out in July so we have an extra month to prepare for the holidays! Today I have a sneak peek of a new holiday bundle call the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. I’ve got the card stock cuts at the bottom of today’s post and links to any products currently available.

And I’m joining some of the ladies on the Inkin’ Krew Team in a Blog Hop to celebrate the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog! We’ve each chosen a different bundle for our projects, so be sure to check out everyone’s projects and take a tour of many of the upcoming new goodies!

I adhered a panel of the pretty new Boughs of Holly designer series paper to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the front of a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals.

I cut the two detailed holly berry leaf dies from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle from gold metallic specialty paper and adhered them to the card front with glue dots. I colored three large iridescent gems with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and adhered them to the card front by the leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny and cut it out with the small label die.

I ran some Stampin’ Seal at the base of the leaves and adhered some folded gold shimmer ribbon to the card front. I adhered the label over the ribbon to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large holly leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set in stamped off Soft Succulent ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink over the leaf and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Boughs of Holly DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle is so versatile with large, bold holly leaves that can be die cut or stamped. The dies can be used to cut out the leaves for layering the dies or for cutting out the stamped images and there are pretty labels for the wonderful sentiments. Here’s a picture of the Leaves of Holly stamp set with the coordinating Holly Berry dies and the beautiful Boughs of Holly DSP with my card.

And here’s a close up of the beautiful papers in the Boughs of Holly designer series paper. This will be gorgeous with a lot of Christmas stamp sets!

The Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle and Boughs of Holly DSP will be available on July 1 when the new July-December 2022 Mini Catalog goes live. And don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration Part 2 will start then too!

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card

Have you heard that on July 1, the Stampin’ Up! July – December 2022 Mini Catalog will be available for ordering?  There are so many pretty new and returning holiday stamp sets in the new mini, and by coming out in July instead of August, we have an extra month to make Christmas cards – Yay!!  One of the pretty returning sets in the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments photopolymer stamp set with the cool Merriest Frames Hybrid embossing folder and dies.  So I pulled it out to make my first Christmas card for the year! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a Basic White panel with the detailed die from the Merriest Frames set and then put it in the embossing folder with the outline die.  I ran it through my die cutting machine to get the gorgeous embossed die cut greenery.  I adhered the die cut to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Basic White panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder.  I shook off the excess and heated the powder until it was shiny with my heat tool.  I cut out the sentiment with the Merriest Frames rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. 

I stamped and die cut the flowers and greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set on Basic White to decorate the front.  I stamped two small poinsettias and one large one in Sweet Sorbet and I stamped the centers with Crushed Curry.  I stamped a set of holly berries in Cherry Cobbler and two holly leaves in Shaded Spruce.  I stamped four of the rounded leaf sprigs in Garden Green and one of the spruce sprigs in Soft Succulent. 

I cut everything out and adhered one of the small poinsettias to the large one.  I adhered the leaves and holly berries to the card front with glue dots and adhered the poinsettias to the card with dimensionals.  I made a bow with gold trim and tucked it under the flower.  I finished the flower centers with gold metallic pearls (available July 1).

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel.  I stamped the poinsettias in Sweet Sorbet in the corners and masked them before stamping the leaf clusters in Garden Green.  I added some Shaded Spruce holly leaves and Cherry Cobbler berries.  I adhered the panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set has fun, modern graphic Christmas greenery images and it’s great to have coordinating dies, especially with the hybrid embossing folder!  But the pretty images can also be stamped without the dies like I did on the inside of the card.  It has beautiful sentiments and the coordinating Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder makes the most beautiful Christmas cards!

There’s less than a week before the new catalog is available for ordering, so it’s time to start planning those Holiday cards. Here’s a picture of the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and I will post a PDF on July 1 when it’s open for ordering.

If you haven’t received a catalog yet, but would like to be a customer of mine, I’ll be happy to send you one!
