Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. For today’s card, I used felt for the snow! I have wanted to play with felt for a long time and I finally made it happen with this card! You can find the supplies 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find it here.

I started by cutting a 1-3/4″ x 5″ panel of while felt from the Festive Felt sheet combo pack with the rolling hillside die from the Home Together Dies. I was really pleased at how easy it was to cut!! I also cut a panel of Whisper White to match and adhered the felt to the front. This gives me a bright white snow bank as my sample card was adhered to the DSP directly and looks a little dingy.

I stamped all my die cuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped 4 houses, three large pine trees, two small pine trees and a wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home photopolymer stamp set. I colored them all with Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I stamped the bare tree and adhered the snowbank to the Trimming the Town DSP and then the DSP to a Whisper White mat. I tucked the small pine tree under the snow bank, stamped the smoke and adhered the large house with dimensionals and liquid glue.

I adhered the two smaller houses together with liquid glue and popped them on the larger house with dimensionals. I added the wreath with dimensionals and the two large pine trees with dimensionals and liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black in on a strip of Whisper White. I trimmed the end with the new Banners Pick a Punch and adhered it to the front with liquid glue. I finished the label with a red rhinestone. I popped the little scene onto the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in real red ink and adhered the last two trees to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
