Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage Seasons Greetings Card

Good Morning! Today I have a blue Seasons Greetings card made with the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage stamp bundle. This beautiful set celebrates frosty cold nature in wintertime with leaves and snowflakes. The dies include a rectangular frame which can be decorated with other die cut elements. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the scattered snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage stamp set in Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink on a Night of Navy card base. I cut the Frosted Frames large fancy frame die from a panel of Seaside Spray and the small stitched frame die from a panel of the Feels Like Frost designer series paper. I adhered the small stitched frame to the larger Seaside Spray frame with liquid glue.

I used the Frosted Frames dies to decorate the frame. I cut two of the leaf sprays from vellum card stock and one from Seaside Spray. I cut two of the star pairs from Sparkle Glimmer paper. I cut two of the small sprays from silver foil. I arranged the die cuts around the frame on the front and the back and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the decorated frame to the card front with dimensionals and finished off the snowflakes with pearl gems.

I stamped the Seasons Greetings stamp from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark Ink on a strip of Seaside Spray. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set. I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage stamp set in Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink on the embossed label and trimmed the ends. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue and decorated it with a Seaside Spray silvery bow.

I decorated the inside by stamping the snowflakes again in Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink and the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Seaside spray mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage bundle is a great set to celebrate the natural beauty of winter for any winter celebration. This is the first time I’ve used this beautiful stamp bundle. I hope you like it and break it out if you have the set in your stash too!

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid White and Gold Christmas Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the November Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop!

Our team is doing a Blog Hop with the theme “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays” and I am making a Christmas card with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Stamp photopolymer bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started with the trees. I punched two from Gold Foil card stock, one from Gold Glimmer card stock and one from Sparkle Glimmer card stock. I took one foil tree and embossed it with the Stylish Scrolls embossing folder. The last three trees were stamped and gold embossed on shimmery white paper before being punched. I used the tree stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set, the diagonal stripes from the Tiny Keepsakes stamp set and the star field from the So Many Stars stamp set. For all of these, I used my embossing buddy on the shimmery white card stock, stamped with Versamark ink, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set. I then punched out the trees. Then I punched out 7 additional trees from Whisper White and adhered them to the back of the trees to add stiffness.

I took a panel of Thick Whisper White and embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder. I die cut two of the edge dies from the Christmas Rose dies from gold foil and adhered them to the back of the embossed panel on the bottom. I adhered a piece of the gold shimmer ribbon just above the edge with snail and wrapped it around, securing it in the back. I arranged the trees on the panel, adhering the ones in the back with liquid glue and popped the ones in the front with dimensionals. I then adhered the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. Then I decorated the trees as shown with pearls, gold glitter enamel dots and gold metallic pearls.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink on a strip of Whisper White. I sprinkled it with embossing powder and heat set. I then curled it with my bone folder to give it some movement and adhered it to the card base with glue dots. I finished the banner with two gold metallic pearls.

I decorated the inside by embossing the sentiment and tree from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in gold on a Whisper White panel. I adhered it to a gold foil mat and then to the inside of the card.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set with the Pine Tree punch and wanted to try making an elegant sparkly Christmas card with it. I hope you like it.

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Christmas Cheer Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another snowman Christmas Card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set and Let it Snow designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the Mojo Monday 526 Sketch Challenge layout for this card. I love the fishtail banners in this sketch and the Let it Snow DSP has so many pretty papers that look good together that I just had to make another snowman card with the layered look. Here is the sketch:

I embossed a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. I cut the different pieces of Let it Snow DSP and arranged them on the embossed panel according to the sketch and adhered them with liquid glue.

I stamped the happy snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set on a panel of Shimmery White card stock and cut it out with the large circle from the Stitched shapes dies. I colored it with Real Red, Pool Party, shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I added the little snow balls from the Let it Snow embellishment pack with liquid glue and then added a Real Red scalloped mat made from largest scalloped circle from the Layered circles dies. I adhered the layered circle to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set using Versamark ink on a strip of Real Red card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the ends of the label and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the little snowmen from the Let it Snow DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Coastal Cabana mat before attaching it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set is so cute and I have made so many different whimsical Christmas Cards with it. The Let it Snow designer series paper is also so cute and whimsical and the designs make the sweetest Christmas cards. I love the combination of the Real Red with the Coastal Cabana!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Celebrate the Season

Good Morning! Today I have another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set and Beautiful Boughs dies.

It’s in blue and gold and uses the design from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches #408. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by dusting a panel of Seaside Spray card stock with with my embossing buddy and randomly stamping the 3 branch stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in VersaMark ink. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I matted it with gold foil paper and adhered it to a Seaside Spray card base with dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the small branches using the Beautiful Boughs dies in gold foil. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in VersaMark ink on a strip of Seaside Spray cardstock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the end and backed it with a strip of gold foil and arranged it on the card with the two gold foil branches.

I finished the card front with a gold satin bow and gold glitter dots, both from the upcoming Christmastime is Here suite (available Nov 1).

On a panel of Whisper White, I stamped the corners with branches from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set with VersaMark ink. I also stamped the sentiment from the Merry Christmas to all photopolymer stamp set in the middle. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I adhered it to the inside of the card.

Embossed cards at Christmas are so elegant. And this one is a simple design that easy to make. That’s a double bonus!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Christmas Card

Good Morning! Here’s a cute little snowman Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set. I also used the Let It Snow Speciality Designer Paper to create a layered look. This is is such a happy color combination, sure to make Christmas merry! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Here’s the card:

I started building the background by cutting the Let It Snow DSP pieces. I matted the large panel on Basic Black and the smaller layering pieces on Real Red. I adhered it all together with liquid glue.

I then stamped the snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Panel of Whisper White. I colored it with Real Red, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I then cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies. I added some Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and heat set it. It is so amazing to watch it puff up!! Be careful though as it will start to turn brown if heated too much.

I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies to cut a Real Red mat and adhered it to the back of the circle. I created the label by stamping the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Real Red and trimmed the end. I adhered this to the layered background with liquid glue and then tied the curly ribbon around it and made a bow. I adhered the Snowman Circle to the background with dimensionals and used dimensionals to attach it all to a Real Red card base.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White. I added some snowflakes in Coastal Cabana ink and added a strip of the little snowmen paper to the bottom. I adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

Snowmen are great themes for Christmas cards and for Winter cards afterwards. The snowmen in the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set are happy and whimsical and the Let It Snow Specialty Designer paper is a winner too! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
