Stampin’ Up! My Last Christmas Card for 2020

Folks, do a drum roll….
Today is my last Christmas card for 2020.

I’ve been working on them since August and today the last batch will go out in the mail for friends and family.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper and used the Curvy Dies to cut a hole out of the center. I adhered this over a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the space I stamped the sentiment from the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler ink. I stamped the birds from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored them in using Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I used the Curvy Dies to cut the birds out, as well as some sprigs from Vellum cardstock. I adhered the birds down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

The Curvy Christmas Stamp Set and Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper are only available through January 4th. Don’t miss out!!

Stampin’ Up! Gift Wrapping & Gift Tag

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme is Wrap It up/Gifts. Happy hopping!

I have to say I found this challenging since I make cards 99% of the time – they’re kind of my jam. But I did have a small gift that needed wrapping, so I decided to have fun with this theme.

I wrapped my gift using a pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I wrapped around a Shaded Spruce Ribbon in a knot.

I used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to cut out a 2″ Real Red tag and a 1″ Whisper White tag. On the smaller tag, I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink. At the bottom of the Real Red tag, I adhered a small piece of DSP.

I stamped the tree from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink, cutting it out with the Pine Tree Punch. I adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I put a piece of Real Red ribbon through the hole of the tags and then secured it with Gold Thread. With the Gold Thread, I also put two jingle bells and wound it around the Shaded Spruce ribbon to secure it to the gift.

Thanks for checking out my gift wrapping project today! I hope it’s inspired you to make gift wrapping really beautiful and special this year!
