Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Floral Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Christmas card – a floral card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. So you might think that the Dove of Hope cling stamp set isn’t a floral stamp set, but look closely and you will spot the doves. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

I started by randomly stamping the doves from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a crumb cake panel and adhered it to a Real Red mat. This gives me a textured background for my flowers like you would get if you embossed it or used designer series paper. I die cut the petals from the Magnolia Memory Dies using Whisper White card stock, I cut two of each petal cluster giving me six total. I gently curled the petals up with my fingers and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I cut two small centers from the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered them together. I bent the stamens up and adhered it to the center of the Whisper White flower. I cut two large flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies from Real Red card stock and three large leaves from the Magnolia Memory Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. I cut a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink in the lower left corner. I adhered a Mossy Meadow die cut leaf sprig from the Detailed Dove Dies to the label.

I popped the label to the stamped panel with dimensionals. I adhered the leaves and Real Red flowers with liquid glue and popped the large Magnolia Memory Dies Whisper White flower on with dimensionals. I made a bow with Real Red braided twine and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the flowers with resin dots. I popped the finished panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped a dove in the upper corner and adhered a die cut sprig under the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love rustic Christmas cards with Crumb Cake card card stock! They have such a natural homespun feel. And I love floral Christmas cards because they’re different, but express the joy of the holiday. And I’m so glad to be able to use the pretty flower from the Magnolia Memory Dies! Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Fall card made with the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Actually, I used three different stamp sets for this card. I pulled in the pumpkins from the Gather Together stamp set and the oak leaves and acorns from the Beautiful Autumn bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can now find my edited YouTube video here.

I started by stamping the sign using the boards and sentiment stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand and Soft Suede inks on Whisper White. I cut out the sign with a thin white outline. I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White and colored it with Mossy Meadow and Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends. I fussy cut the pumpkins with my paper snips. I also used the Gathered Leaves Dies to cut a small embossed maple leaf from Pear Pizzazz card stock.

I stamped six oak leaves from the Beautiful Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Bumblebee card stock and punched them out with the coordinating punch from the Autumn Punch Pack. I stamped three acorns from the same set in Soft Suede ink on Sahara Sand card stock and punched them out. I die cut the wreath from Cinnamon Cider Card stock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider mat. I adhered the wreath to the embossed panel using liquid glue and adhered linen thread using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the die cut leaf with glue dots so that it covered the Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the pumpkins together with liquid glue and popped them on the wreath with dimensionals. I adhered the oak leaves and acorns with glue dots, tucking the ends behind the pumpkins. I adhered the Bumblebee gingham ribbon to the sign with glue dots and adhered the sign to the top of the wreath with dimensionals. I finished off the wreath with Bumblebee enamel dots and adhered the piece to the front of a Sahara Sand card base.

I adhered the last oak leaves and acorn to a Whisper White pane and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath bundle is so versatile!!

Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season Wreath Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I used the wonderful Wreath Builder Dies to create a pretty Christmas Wreath to go with the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season cling stamps for a 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.

I adhered a panel of the Shaded Spruce plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack to the front of a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Real Red mat before popping it on the card front with dimensionals.

I cut the leaf wreath from the Wreath Builder Dies from Shaded Spruce card stock, two poinsettias from Real Red card stock and the two pieced bow from Bumblebee card stock. I adhered the wreath and poinsettias on embossed panel with liquid glue and popped the bow on with a piece of a dimensional. I accented the centers of the poinsettias with yellow rhinestones.

I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season stamp set in Real Red ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the label die from the Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue and decorated it with a red rhinestone.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP. I added another poinsettia and small piece of the leaf wreath to the upper corner and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love wreath Christmas cards and the Wreath Builder Dies make beautiful ones, whether simple or more elaborate. Plus, it’s fun – like decorating a holiday wreath for your front door!!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You with Wreath Builder Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! It’s been such a hectic and fun week with the new catalog opening and organizing my new products. But I just love the new In Colors and there are so many fantastic new bundles.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the card sketch we are using:

I started with a strip of the pretty Playing with Patterns 6×6 designer series paper and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat. I embossed a panel of the new In Color Just Jade card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Just Jade card base. I adhered the matted Playing with Patterns DSP to the center of the card front. The DSP has Coastal Cabana stripes, but it really goes well with the Just Jade – I was surprised!

I cut the leaf wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Die set from Just Jade and Vellum card stocks. I used a die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle from Whisper White card stock and stamped the smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Night of Navy ink in the center of the circle. I layered the Just Jade wreath on the Vellum wreath and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the circle to the back of the the wreaths with liquid glue on the inside leaves and then I adhered the layered wreath to the card front.

Next came the fun part – I cut sets of flowers using the flower dies from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder dies from Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Magenta Madness card stock. I also cut the bow from Night of Navy card stock. I adhered a large rhinestone gem to the center of the bow and adhered the bow to the bottom of the wreath with a glue dot. I adhered rhinestone gems to the center of each flower using the medium gems for the large flower and small gems to the small flower. I arranged the flowers around the wreath, adhering them with glue dots.

The inside of the card is is plain, I just added a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room for writing a cheerful note to brighten a friend’s day.
