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! Whimsical Trees Christmas Card Video Tutorial For World Cardmaking Day

Good Morning! Yesterday was World Card Making Day and the Inkin’ Krew had a special Facebook event to celebrate. Several members from out team went live throughout the day making cards, many with Christmas cards so it was full of wonderful inspiration, and I have filled up my shopping list again! Anyway, my card was a Christmas card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle and Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel so you can view it there if you didn’t get to join the Facebook Event group:

I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow on Thick Basic White card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat. Note that this is one of the embossing folders that shrinks the paper a little, so cut the panel about 1/16″ longer before embossing, or emboss a larger panel and cut it down to size after embossing. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card front with dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a dark silver foil mat – I love this pack of silver foil!! I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the tree to the card front with more dimensionals. I cut another dark silver foil panel with the star from the Christmas Trimmings dies and adhered it to the tree top with a glue dot and decorated the tree with 2021-2023 In color jewels.

I stamped the Joy sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Mint Macaron and trimmed the end with a fishtail from the Banners Pick A Punch. I tucked it under the tree, adhering it with glue dots and finished it with a pink jewel. I made a bow with the Blushing Bride ribbon and adhered it under the tree with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set in stamped off Mossy Meadow and stamped the decorations over the tree in Polished Pink. I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink next to the tree and trimmed the bottom of the panel with Whimsy and Wonder DSP. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle and the Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper are absolutely beautiful! The colors are so fresh and fun, and every card is gorgeous!


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 a card with the Love of Leaves stamp set and the Stitched Leaves dies. Look forward to seeing you then!

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! 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! Peaceful Deer Rustic Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I have a rustic Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle and the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper. And I used them to make a fun fold card called a Joy Fold card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. 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.

The Joy Fold card is like a double card with a smaller card on top of a regular size card. It’s great because it provides a lot of surfaces for decorating with pretty designer series papers, die cuts, punch outs and stamped designs.

I adhered the Garden Green tree print from the Peaceful Prints DSP to the inside of the inside large card and the Sahara Sand small deer print to the inside flap. I traced the back of the right facing deer and used it as a guide to punch out the deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP using the deer punch from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle. I adhered the deer to the inside of the large flap. I adhered the Garden Green snowflake panel to the outside of the large card flap. I adhered the Real Red plaid snowflake Peaceful Prints DSP to the outside front of the small card and the diagonal stripe to the inside.

I cut the second largest octagon die from the Hippo and Friends die from Basic White and embossed it with the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I punched the left facing prancing deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP along with another Deer from Basie White and adhered them together. I trimmed the end of the Real Red strip with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered the banner to the embossed panel with Glue Dots and adhered the deer with Dimensionals.

I adhered the small card to the inside of the large card using Tear & Tape. I stamped the deer from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand ink in the lower corner of the Basic White pane. I stamped the medium trees in Garden Green and the sentiment in Real Red. I adhered the panel to the inside of the small card. I used the small circle dies from the Gingerbread dies to cut out a snowflake from the Peaceful Prints DSP and adhered it to a Real Red die cut circle and adhered it to the large card front with dimensionals. This is to tuck the front flap in and is purely optional. I finished the card with a gingham bow and red matte dots.

The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp bundle has so many sweet deer and woodland images and the punch is perfect. It coordinates perfectly with the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper that you can choose for free with a $50 purchase for a rustic Christmas look.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Christmas Card

Happy Friday! Here’s another simple Christmas Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings bundle from the July-December 2021 Annual Catalog. 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 adhesive sheet to the back of the gold foil panel and cut the large detailed star from the Christmas Trimmings dies. I cut the large star from Misty Moonlight and peeled off the backing from the adhesive sheet to adhere the foil star to the Misty Moonlight star. I cut the leaf cluster from Soft Succulent and the berry cluster from gold foil.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings stamp set in Versamark ink on the side of a Real Red panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut the label out with the largest long Stitched Rectangles die. I adhered the panel to the back of the Misty Moonlight star with glue dots.

I adhered a panel of the Christmas Tidings designer series paper to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue and popped the label and star on top with dimensionals. I adhered the leaf and berry clusters with mini glue dots and finished the front off with three red Wonderful Gems (available August 3).


For the inside of the card, I stamped the leafy stars from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings photopolymer stamp set in Real red on a Basic White panel and stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent. I adhered a strip of the Evening Evergreen DSP to the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings bundle is a versatile set with stars and stockings with the Christmas foliage theme. The sentiments are wonderful and the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper is really beautiful. These products are perfect for simple handmade Christmas Cards.

The Poinsettia Petals bundle was a new addition this year with the prettiest poinsettia ever!

The In The Pines Bundle was another beauty that was introduced and sadly retired after just one season – I’m sure they’ll bring back something equally as beautiful next year!

The Snowflake Wishes was another beautiful new bundle with stunning snowflake dies.

And there were lots of other new and returning stamp sets and bundles and pretty designer series papers to make Christmas cards this year!

Of course the Arrange A Wreath bundle made beautiful Christmas cards, as well as wreath cards for any season!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed making Christmas cards with the Stampin’ Up! products from this year’s catalogs and found some new favorites to add to your stash! And thank you so much for following my card making journey! Merry Christmas!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today’s card is a holiday themed Thank You card using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle and the Poinsettia Place designer series paper. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the cute Sketch Challenge in Freshly Made Sketches #464.

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 cut a poinsettia flower from the floral Poinsettia Place designer series paper with the outline poinsettia die from the Poinsettia Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals designer series paper. I used the same die to cut a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the back of the DSP flower so that the flower would be a little stiffer. I also fussy cut the center of another poinsettia and adhered it to the center with dimensionals.

I cut a panel of fancy green paper from the Poinsettia Place DSP with the stitched square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a Woodgrain panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP. I adhered it all to a Soft Suede mat. I popped the poinsettia on with dimensionals and tucked a Linen Thread bow under the flower.

I used the Banners Pick A Punch to cut the end of a Whisper White strip and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Place photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink near the end. I trimmed the other end of the label and adhered it to the panel with a length of Real Red ribbon underneath. I popped the panel on a Real Red card base with dimensionals and accented the front with three red Wonderful Gems.

I adhered a strip of wood grain paper to a Whisper White panel and fussy cut another poinsettia from the Poinsettia Place DSP and adhered it to the corner. I trimmed the petals to be even with the Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set are really nice! The Thank You sentiment is perfect for expressing appreciation for that extra special gift or for sending a quick note after a fun holiday visit or outing. Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Shhh… Today I am sharing the Christmas card that I made for my husband! I used the cute Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle along with the ‘Tis The Season designer series paper and I colored the images with the Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils! This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.


I adhered the plaid ‘Tis The Season designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base. I used the Banner Triple punch on the bottom of the Garden Green strip to create the fishtail and adhered the strip to the card with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and stamped the owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped another set of owls on a smaller Crumb Cake panel and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I colored the branch, leaves and mistletoe on the large panel with the Early Espresso and Garden Green watercolor pencils. I colored the wings and sides of the die cut owls with Early Espresso and used the blender pen to smooth out the coloring. I colored the bellies with Whisper White and the beaks and feet with the daffodil delight. I popped the die cut owls on the main panel with dimensionals. I love how the images are drawn so you can die cut the owls and get a clean edge – no branch lines on the feet!

I cut two mistletoe branches from the Peek A Hoot dies from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle from Garden Green and adhered them on the top of the panel. I cut a Cherry Cobbler border using the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony dies and adhered them to the back of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Versamark ink on Real Red. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die using the two step die cutting method so that it is shorter and fits the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the panel with liquid glue and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a braided linen knot and three white resin dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I die cut another set of Garden Green mistletoe and adhered them to the top corner. I cut some Whisper White dots using the North Pole Wonder dies and adhered them with liquid glue. I trimmed the bottom with the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I CASE’d this sweet card from the Aug 2020 Mini Catalog, because when I saw it, I knew that I needed to make it for my dear hubby. The owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle are just too cute! Have a great week!!
