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! Christmas Season for Thanksgiving Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set used for Fall cards? Last week I made a #simplestamping Christmas card with this set and I wanted to keep playing with this set and make a Thanksgiving card. I have seen a few and I was also inspired by a thank you card that I saw in the store, so I decided to give it a try. Here is the result. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I couldn’t post my Facebook Live video, but I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and here it is:

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla panel. For each image, I did a second generation (aka stamp off once) stamping over the first leaf, but slightly offset. This made the ‘bouquet’ look fuller. Then I stamped the berries in Merry Merlot.

I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D embossing folder to give it more texture and I adhered it to a Merry Merlot mat with liquid glue. I wrapped the panel with Very Vanilla Baker’s twine twice and made a bow on the side.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Merry Merlot on a Cinnamon Cider panel and cut it out with the die from the Seasonal Labels bundle using the two step method. In the video, I made the first cut all the way, and it worked beautifully with this label die. But you have to be careful if using a stitched label die, because you will get stitching all the way to the end. I should have mentioned this in the video, but I didn’t think about it until afterwards.

I adhered the label over the vanilla twine with dimensionals and added three clear Genial Gems around the label. I popped the panel on the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base with dimensionals and trimmed the bow ends.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season images are beautiful in fall colors! The shadow stamping technique works very well with these beautiful images as well. Give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

Good Morning! I wanted to make a Christmas Card with stamped Christmas greenery and the pretty Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set was perfect. And I did not use any dies – I just stamped the images on Basic White and I’m pretty happy with how it came out. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel and proceeded to stamp the greenery along the side and bottom of the panel.

I first stamped the large pinecone from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede – this a two step stamping image that comes out pretty nice. Then I stamped the leaves next to the pinecone in Pear Pizzazz, masking the top cluster so it would appear behind the pinecone. I added pine sprigs in Soft Succulent and berries in Cherry Cobbler. I added some filler greenery and finished it with some Bumblebee dots.

I adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with Old Olive matte dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped some greenery and berries from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in the corners of a Basic White panel and stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This was so easy and fun to do. I was surprised at how nice the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season images look when they’re stamped on top of each other because I’m usually worried about positioning the stamp perfectly. I don’t know if it’s the shading in each stamp or the casualness of the images, but it’s very forgiving and looks very artistic. And did I say it was easy? Give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Cards

Good Friday Morning! One of the fin things I did last weekend was travel to my team lead’s house for our Quarterly In Person Inkin’ Krew Team meeting. We made three beautiful Christmas cards designed by three of our team members with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

This first card was designed by Amy Koenders, our team lead. The greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle really pops against the clean white background and the Cherry Cobbler sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set fits perfectly in the corner. She finishes it with some nice touches of shimmer with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Gold Holly Leaves. You Can find more of Amy’s designs on her blog Stamp with Amy K.

This pretty card was designed by our teammate Karen Ksenzakovic. The Painted Christmas designer series paper is a gorgeous backdrop to the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamped pine cones and I love how she designed the pine branches in a spray around the label. The sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set is a sweet touch on the Cherry Cobbler die cut label. You can find more of Karen’s work on her blog Creative Stamping Designs.

Our last card was made by our teammate Donna Leonard at Stamp Dabbles. I love rustic Christmas cards made with kraft paper and Donna’s design brings this together perfectly! The pine branches from the Wintry 3D embossing folder go beautifully with the Painted Christmas DSP and I love how the stamped greenery looks on Crumb Cake card stock! Donna also incorporated the sentiments from the Christmas To Remember stamp set.

I love how each card is so different and beautiful, it really shows the versatility of the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. And I love how each arrangement of greenery uses the same colors, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Early Espresso, and yet each arrangement is different! It shows that you can easily arrange the die cut pieces any way you want and still come out with a beautiful card.

It was fun to get together to make cards with a few of the other ladies on our team and see these beautiful designs. I feel fortunate that I live close enough to some of my teammates to meet in person, because we are all over the country! Now is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! because of the Sale A Bration extra free bundle that you can add to your Starter Kit.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Yesterday afternoon during my weekly Facebook Live, I used the the pretty Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle to make Christmas card. The Painted Christmas designer series paper has a pretty print that matches the stamps and die cuts in this pretty bundle perfectly, so I used it for the background of my card. 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 adhered a panel the colorful Painted Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base. I cut an Evening Evergreen panel with the large label die from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle and embossed it with the pine needles embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing folders. I adhered it to the center of the card front.

I stamped the long leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green, the berry Cluster in Garden Green and Real Red, the small leaf cluster in Soft Sea Foam and the small pinecone in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I cut these out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Sea Foam on a small basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set in Real Red ink on top of the leaf and cut it out with the label die. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and finished the card front with a Cherry Cobbler and Gold ribbon bow and three gilded gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Sea Foam on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to remember stamp set over the leaves in Real Red and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Painted Christmas DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Christmas Season bundle has so many pretty holiday greenery images that all have coordinating dies, making it real easy to make decorative greenery arrangements for cards, tags and gift packages. And the label dies are very versatile and can be used with many other stamp sets that have sentiments.
