Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle with the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to make a traditional Christmas Card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the festive color palette we are using for our projects:

Adhere the strip of colorful holly paper to the panel of red holly ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with liquid glue. Adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the front of a Real Red card base. Adhere the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP to a Shaded Spruce mat and then adhere it to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Shaded Spruce. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. Trim the end with the Banner Pick A Punch and adhere it to the card front. Using the Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle, cut the three largest petal clusters from Red Velvet paper with the middle embossing panel. Adhere the layers together with liquid glue.

Cut one of each leaf from the Poinsettia Dies from Garden Green and cut the flower center and berry sprig from gold foil. Adhere the flower center to the poinsettia with a glue dot and adhere the flower to the card front with more glue dots. Add liquid glue to the leaves and gold berry sprig and tuck them under the poinsettia. Finish the card front with three Wonderful Gems.

Stamp the poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and adhere another strip of plaid ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle makes the most beautiful 3d poinsettia flower for Christmas cards. And the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper is so festive – any card made with it is sure to bring holiday!

Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Rustic Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas Card made with the versatile new Stampin’ Up! In The Pines stamp bundle. I’m using the large Pine Tree die cuts to make a Christmas Tree card! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I die cut the background large tree background from Just Jade card stock and the detailed tree from Shaded Spruce card stock using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered them together with dots of liquid glue. I cut a large oval from Whisper White and a large scalloped oval from Cherry Cobbler using the Layering Ovals Dies. I embossed the Whisper White oval with the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder and adhered it to the front of the Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval. I popped the layered tree on top with dimensionals and accented it with rhinestones.

I adhered a panel of ‘Tis the Season 6″x6″ designer series paper to a Basic Black mat. I embossed a strip of Cherry Cobbler with the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of the plaid paper. I colored a length of Whisper White crinkle seam binding ribbon with the light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and wrapped it around the seam and tied a bow. I stamped the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Whisper White. I cut it out with the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to the embossed red panel on the plaid layered panel.

I adhered the layered plaid panel to the front of a Just Jade card base with dimensionals. I adhered the layered oval panel to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. Next to the sentiment, I stamped the medium tree from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines stamp set in stamped off Just Jade ink. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the green plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle is so versatile with so many sizes and styles of trees. They make great Christmas Trees, but they can also be used to create outdoor scenes. You can see the detailed image below and you can click on the it to go to my online store and see the complete details.
