Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Christmas Card II

Good Morning! Today am sharing another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly photopolymer stamp set. Earlier this week I used the stamp set to make another Christmas card – you can check it out here – that has a different look, showing the versatility of this beautiful stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the outline holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the corresponding solid leaves stamps in Just Jade to fill in the leaves and the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink. I adhered the panel to a Gold foil mat with liquid glue and then popped it on the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in versamark ink on a Cherry Cobbler panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I tied a loopy bow with gold trim and adhered it to the back with a glue dot. I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three gilded gems.

I stamped corners of a Whisper White panel with one of the holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce, Just Jade and Cherry Cobbler ink like the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas cling stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This card was simpler to make than the previous Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly card, and I think it’s just as beautiful. With this design you can appreciate how elegant and graceful the holly branches are. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a Christmas Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly photopolymer stamp set. This is a multi step stamp set with beautiful, graceful holly branches and stamps for making the outlines and coloring the inside. Since it’s a photopolymer stamp set, it’s pretty easy to do because you can see through the stamp to get a good alignment. 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 one of the holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink randomly all over the Whisper White panel to get an all over stamped look. I stamped the corresponding solid leaves stamp in Just Jade to fill in the leaves and the berries in Real Red ink to finish the panel. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and then to a gold foil mat and tied a length of sheer Real Red ribbon in a bow on one side.

I used the Joy dies to cut out the thin lined ‘Joy’ word from gold foil and the medium word from Real Red. I adhered the gold foil word to the Real Red word with the fine tip glue pen and set a stamp block on top for bit to let the glue dry. Meanwhile, I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Shaded Spruce card base.

I adhered the stamped panel to the card front with dimensionals and the Joy with liquid glue. I finished the card front off with three Gilded Gems.

I stamped three corners of a Whisper White panel with one of the holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce, Just Jade and Real Red ink like the panel on the card front. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on the side and adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the card.

The holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set are pretty versatile because they make beautiful Christmas cards when randomly stamped as well as when stamped as simple elegant branches. And the outline images can be colored with the two step stamp method like I did or colored separately with any coloring technique – markers, watercolor, colored pencils or not at all. Here’s a close up of the stamp set so you can see what I mean about how beautifully elegant and graceful the branches are. Click on the image to see the details in my On Line Store.
