Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags

Tags have a really special way of making gift giving even more special.

They had a unique touch to your wrapping and are one of a kind.

I know personally when I receive a beautiful tag, specifically a Christmas one, it then becomes a Christmas ornament.

Today’s post offers my Christmas Tag Mailed Stamp Kit.

In this kit you will receive:

  • The Merry Little Labels Bundle
  • Mini Ornaments (8 in the box)
  • Green Sprigs (12 in the box)
  • Year of Cheer Embellishments (24 in total)
  • Linen Thread – FREE
  • The makings for 10 original Christmas tags (2 each of 5 designs)
  • PDF file with instructions on how to make the 10 tags and other Christmas cards using this bundle

The cost for the Christmas Tag Mailed Stamp Kit is $60 plus $6.75 for shipping.

If you already own the Merry Little Labels Bundle, you may purchase other Stampin’ Up! product valued at $34.

Here’s a peek at the five tags:

*Please note two of the tags use the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies to create holly leaves and berries.  If you do not own these items, you will receive the cutout image from solid Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstock*

To sign up for the Christmas Tags Mailed Stamp Kit, please fill out below by November 8th:

Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethleham – Neutral Colors

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the scene from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set on it in Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the sentiment above it in Sahara Sand ink and matted the Very Vanilla cardstock on Soft Suede cardstock.

Below the scene I added a piece of Gold Foil Sheet and a piece of Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

Lastly I cut out the star from Gold Foil using the coordinating Bethlehem Edgelits Dies and adhered it using a Stamin’ Dimensional.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Lit Christmas

My card today features the fun Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  What makes bundles great is they pair a stamp set and thinlits/framelits/punch together for a discounted price of 10%.  The stamp set and thinlits (in this case) sometimes match perfectly to cut out images and other times compliment one another.

I start off with Soft Sky cardstock which I embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I then started by creating my lamppost using the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  I cut the lamp out in Basic Black cardstock and the lights in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The bow comes from the Christmas Around the World DSP which perfectly matches the bow thinlit from the bundle!

I cut out a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and then used a square framelit to cut out the inside.  I layered behind it a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Memento Black on Real Red cardstock.  I added a Whisper white die cut snowflake from the Seasonal Tags Thinlits and wrapped behind it some Silver Thread.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Blessings

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

This week’s card starts off with Garden Green cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock and adhered a panel of Gold Foil cardstock behind it.

I used the Layering Circles Framelits and cut out two circles from the Gold Foil cardstock.  I then added some texture around the edge of them by placing the cardstock face down on my cutting pad (which is well loved and has lots of texture on it).  Over the Gold Foil circle I placed a slightly larger circle framelit but with the cutting “lip” faced up away from the paper.  This way the edge of the circle was making an impression on the paper and the texture from the cutting pad was making an embossed look on the gold foil.

I cut out a scene from the  Hometown Greetings framelits from Basic Black cardstock and measured them across each of the ornaments and trimmed them down.

I wrapped around some Gold Thread a bunch of times and then adhered it from the top of the DSP down to wear the ornaments would hang.  I used the Pretty Pines thinlits to cut out some boughs from Garden Green cardstock and a bow from Real Red cardstock to decorate the one ornament.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Memento Black ink on Real Red cardstock and cut it out using the Cupcake Cutouts framelits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Merry Christmas

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s challenge at Inspire.Create.Challenges.

When I saw the sketch challenge, I was pretty sure what I wanted to create – a clean and simple black and white Christmas card.  I love the crispness of this card and it certainly could easily be duplicated.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  The “Thick” cardstock is ideal for any card base and really holds up nicely to build a card off of.  I then took a pattern from the Merry Music DSP and cut it on a diagonal to adhere to the card front.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I cut out trees using the Card Front Builder Thinlits from the same pattern from the Merry Music DSP.

I stamped the Santa from the Hearts Come Home stamp set in Archival Black ink over the embossed cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Happiness

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

Not going to lie, this color combination had me a bit stumped.  Garden Green and Real Red, no problem, got it, but the Lemon Lime Twist!?

So I took some liberty here.  I’m thinking if yellow Christmas lights shone against green pines, maybe they would look a bit “limey”?!?!  Maybe?!

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock which eventually will be matted on Garden Green cardstock.  I took the Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped the pine needles along the top of the Whisper White panel in Garden Green ink.  I then took a sponge and colored the edges with Garden Green ink, as well as sponged the top around the pine needles.

Next I stamped the outside of the lights in Memento Black around the pine needles and stamped the bottom of the lights in Real Red ink and the lights in Lemon Lime Twist ink.

So you might be looking at my Baker’s Twine and thinking – there’s no (at least current) Garden Green Baker’s Twine and I’d say you’re correct.  I made my own 🙂

I took a sandwich sized zipper baggie and put a cut piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine in it.  I then squirted a few drops of Garden Green reinker in it.  I then sort of rubbed the outside of the bag so the twine was getting covered in the ink.  I added more ink until I had it covered enough.  In hindsight, I think I would’ve used the thinner Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine, but at this point I wasn’t even sure this was going to work.

I took the twine out and let it dry on a paper towel.  I then cut and placed very, very small pieces of Tear & Tape adhesive in the spots where I wanted the twine to loop and connect to the lights.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut the end in a banner and added a little Gold Doily underneath.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens

Today you’ll get a little insight into the process I use to make a card.

If you look at the cards I make, most are simple and clean cards.  They may have a few layers, but they’re usually on the “less is more” side.

However, I love cards with tons of layers, elements, and textures.

So when I’m done creating a card, I usually ask myself – What’s one or two more elements I can add to step it up a bit.  And that’s how I get my cards.

Well, today’s card is no different.  I created the first one and thought – I’m going to add one more element, but I was so stumped as to which one I liked more when all done.  I asked my hubby which one he liked more and he said – Why don’t you make it both ways?

He’s brilliant, really, so today I bring you one simple card and one a little stepped up card.  Let me know in the comments which one you like more.

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Winter Wonder embossing folder.

I then wrapped around the Whisper White some Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine. I stamped the mittens in Crumb Cake ink using the Smitten Mittens stamp set, cutting them out using the coordinating Many Mittens framelits.   I cut a small piece of Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine, adhering each end to a mitten.  I then tied a bow through the wrapped twine and twine connecting the mittens.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Emerald Envy ink.

Now for my stepped up version…

I did everything the same except this time I added two mittens that I cut out using the Many Mittens framelits and Emerald Envy and Whisper White cardstock.  Let me know which one you like more!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and embossed it using the Holly embossing folder and adhered it to the card.

I then cut out a 2″ pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and used the Triple Banner Punch to cut each end.  I adhered over the banner a gold Foil Snowflake.

Next I created my tag using the Labels to Love stamp set and Everyday Label Punch.  I colored the stamp in with write markers (Real Red, Garden Green, and Basic Black).

Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home

Are you sick of me saying I’m so excited for today’s card?!

Because I am so excited for today’s card!!

Last Friday I had my Holiday Catalog party.  We played some games, won some door prizes, and we also made two cards.  I decided to make the cards a little more labor intensive than I normally would.

My rule of thumb for my parties is I never design a card that I wouldn’t myself proudly send.  But even these 2 cards had more details than usual.  We had plenty of time so we took it step by step and everyone’s cards came out great!

So for this first card (second one will be posted tomorrow) I used the Hearts Come Home Bundle.  I start out with Night of Navy cardstock.  After rubbing the spot to be stamped on with an Embossing Buddy, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the edgelit with church from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits to cut out the scene.  I took the edgelit with the houses and lined it up as best I could and cut out the extra house.  I then took the Softly Falling embossing folder and embossed only the bottom of the scene.

Next I took some scrap pieces of So Saffron cardstock and cut them to fit behind the buildings.  I then ran through the same edgelit as was used before (with the church) with Always Artichoke cardstock and then cut off the trees and glued them on the white trees.

Don’t forget to check out my Facebook page tomorrow to see exactly how I made this card.  If you miss it, the video will stay posted!

Enjoy!

I went ahead and made a Facebook Live video showing how to make this card.  It’s only my second one I’ve ever made and there are a few glitches and it’s very “real”.

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

AUTUMN HOME DECOR

I created this cute tag for a pumpkin (or other décor) for my Holiday Catalog party as a door prize.  I got so many ooohs and aaahs that I decided to sell them.  Check out this post for more details on how to grab yours!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Labels

Being that I’m offering two special bundles right now (see below), I wanted to use the Merry Little Labels stamp set today.

This is a fun set that is great for holiday tags, but can easily be used for cards as well.

My card today starts off with Basic Gray cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Year of Cheer DSP and mounted it on the gorgeous Champagne cardstock.  I really wish my lighting did this paper justice because it’s absolutely beautiful!!!

Next I took a panel of Silver cardstock and stamped the “Let It Snow” image in Versamark from the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  I then sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Note:  I normally hold the paper when I heat emboss, but for this I put the paper on a heat-safe surface and heated it, that way the paper didn’t curl.

I cut the sentiment out using the Everyday Label punch.

I adhered a Silver foil snowflake to the card front (to go under the sentiment).  I thought the card needed a hint of color, so I added a Soft Sky banner and then adhered the label using Stampin’ dimensionals.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Fab Friday.
