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! Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card III

Good Morning! I have been having fun with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set, making Christmas cards this past week and here’s another take. This time, I stamped an evergreen forest in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and accented it with touches of gold! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Balmy Blue card base. I used my blending brush to apply Balmy Blue ink on the top of a Basic White panel to color a sky. Then I used the brusk to blend in some Pacific Point ink around the outside edge to intensify the color.

I stamped the two largest trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent to make the forest on the bottom. I kept the dark trees in the bottom and in the foreground and the lighter trees behind it, using the stamped off trees to make the forest fade into the sky. I cut the panel with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped the layered panel with gold twine, making a bow in the corner and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum card stock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the label with the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered it to the tree panel with glue dots placed under the embossing. I finished the label with two gold holly leaves and three red rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So after playing with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set for these last three cards, I feel like I’m starting to make a dent in my Christmas card list. And I’m really happy with how these cards came out! This is a great stamp set for making Christmas cards!

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! Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card I

Earlier this month I did a post with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance bundle with pretty cards designed by the Stampin’ Up! Design team. I finally got my hands on this pretty stamp set and made a couple of layered Christmas cards with them, pairing them with the pretty Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. Here is the first card and I will show you how to make the second card during my Facebook Live this afternoon at 1:00 ET. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I die cut a strip of Real Red with the long fancy frame from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered a strip of Evening Evergreen Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the top. I adhered this layered panel to a Basic White Tidings of Christmas DSP panel and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped the layered DSP panel with a length of real red ribbon, securing it in the back and adhered the panel to the front of a Real Red card base with Dimensionals.

I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large star on top of the tree with Crushed Curry ink and adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat. I stamped the sentiment from the Penguin Place photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on the right side of a Basic White mat and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels Die.

I adhered the label with glue dots under the lacy strip and adhered the tree panel to the card front with dimensionals. I made a bow with the real red ribbon and adhered it next to the tree with glue dots and decorated the tree with red rhinestone gems. I put a large yellow rhinestone on the star and another red rhinestone on the label to finish the front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the bough from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen on the bottom of a Basic White panel and stamped the sentiment in Real Red. I adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the card.

The large tree from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set reminds me of another tree from a Stampin’ Up! retired favorite, so I decided to make this card with a traditional layered DSP design. You can’t go wrong giving a card with a decorated Christmas tree!

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 another pretty Christmas tree card with this same stamp set. Look forward to seeing you then!
