Stampin’ Up! Season To Remember Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Season To Remember bundle has wonderful Christmas sentiments in the cling stamp set that comes with the pretty Christmas Pinecone dies. I pulled out the dies for the first time this season, and they’re so pretty!! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The design for today’s card was inspired by the sketch in Freshly Made Sketches #513:

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I embossed the stamped panel with the Merry Melody stamp set and trimmed the panel to 3-3/4″ x 5″ (this embossing panel causes shrinkage, so I sized the panel after embossing). I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat with liquid glue and popped it onto a Thick Basic White card base.

I punched one end of a strip of Painted Christmas designer series paper with the Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the embossed panel with liquid glue. I cut the large detailed pine boughs from the Christmas Pinecone dies and trimmed it so I had a few pine branches. I adhered the branches together with liquid glue. I cut the solid pinecone dies from Crumb Cake and the detailed pinecone dies from Soft Suede and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered the small pinecones to the pine branches with glue dots and the large pinecone with dimensionals.

I adhered the pinecones and branches to the card front with glue dots. I adhered some gold holly leaves and red rhinestones to the arrangement to add some bling.

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 adhered a strip of Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set are simple and sweet. I love the combination of music with Christmas Greenery on a Christmas card, and every time I read the inside sentiment, I’m singing it – what could be more festive?

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! 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.
