Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage cling stamp is a background stamp and one of those catalog hidden gems! It’s so festive and versatile – I’ve seen the pretty image embossed in silver and gold as well as colored like I did here. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped a panel of Basic White with the Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp using my Stamparatus and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used a larger panel so I could hold the panel down with the magnets and clear the stamp and I did stamp it a couple of times to get good coverage. Then I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″.

I colored the foliage with Stampin’ Blends – Soft Succulent, Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Real Red. Using the different greens makes the image so rich! Then I colored the background with my light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Pool Party and cut it out with the Tailor Made Tags die. I cut out a tag reinforcer from Real Red and adhered it to the tag with liquid glue. I looped some ruffled Real Red and Black and White Gingham ribbon through the hole and tied the ribbon with baker’s twine that I colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. I adhered the tag to the card front and added some Pool Party rhinestones for some bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the corners of a Basic White panel with the Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it to match the card front. I stamped the sentiment from Perfectly Plaid in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I love this pretty holiday greenery image! The Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp set is also great for making quick and easy Christmas cards. And with Thanksgiving this week, time’s running out for finishing up those Christmas cards, so quick and easy is important!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Friendship Card

Good Friday Morning! I hope you’re ready for a nice relaxing weekend. I made another card with the new Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden bundle! In today’s card, I used the pretty cling stamp set and new Soft Succulent cotton paper to create a panel of richly textured paper to go with the lush Ever Eden specialty designer series paper. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I randomly stamped the matte side of the Soft Succulent cotton paper with the large leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. I crinkled it in a ball a couple of times to get lots of wrinkles and gently opened it up. I covered a Basic White panel with an adhesive sheet, pulled off the cover and adhered the crinkled cotton paper to the front, leaving in crinkles and pressing it firmly. I trimmed the excess cotton paper and cut 1/2″ off the panel to have a strip for the inside.

I used the border die from the Eden dies to cut a strip of brushed metallic gold foil and adhered it to the back of the cotton paper panel and adhered them both to an Ever Eden specialty designer series paper panel with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Soft Succulent and cut it out with the second smallest angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut out a reinforcer form Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the front. I cut another tag from Basic White and decorated it by adhering two leaf sprigs die cut from Evening Evergreen cotton paper. I adhered the Basic White tag to the back of the Soft Succulent tag and wrapped Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ribbon through the hole. I tied the ribbon with gold trim, making a bow, and adhered the tags to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf sprig in Evening Evergreen across the bottom of a Basic White panel after stamping off twice each time. I adhered the Soft Succulent cotton panel to the left side and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The the stamped and crinkled cotton paper technique is one I’ve used in the past with tissue paper. The cotton paper is a little stronger, but still very lightweight so it’s very fun to play with – a nice addition to the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden collection that is available while supplies last.
