Stampin’ Up! Christmas Joyful Holly Card

Today is Wednesday!!!

I’ll be live tonight on my Facebook page with a live tutorial. I sure hope you’ll join me.

If you do, you may just win the card!

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the outline holly image from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I stamped the holly image in Garden Green ink and berries in Real Red ink. I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it. I cut it out using the Stitched Nested Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a Mossy Meadow bow next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Tree Angle Christmas Card

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

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper.

The beautiful Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper is available for a limited time only through Jan 4th!

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the ornaments from the Tree Angle Stamp Set along the top of it in Cherry Cobbler ink. I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Tree Angle images to stamp trees in Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Suede ink on Whisper White, Soft Suede, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I stamped the trunks in Soft Suede ink and I fussy cut them out. I cut the trees out using the Stitched Triangles Dies, adhering some with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tree Angle Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Bundle Beautiful Day

Am I the the only one who gets to Friday and does a little happy dance?!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, although you cant see it because I covered it with a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the one leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink (stamping off first for the lighter inside image). While I had this out, I stamped the oak leaf in Pumpkin Pie.

I cut the oak leaves out and solid oak leaves from Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Autumn Punch Pack. I then matted this on Merry Merlot cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Layering Circles Dies to cut out (what I’m calling) a wreath from Merry Merlot cardstock. I adhered the oak leaves over the previously stamped Crumb Cake leaves. I added an Embroidered Ribbon Bow over where the leaves touched.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Merry Merlot ink on a very thin piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it down using Mini Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Color Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Thank You Card

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

My card starts with Purple Posy cardstock.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and used the thick Water Painter to add lines. I alternated between Highland Heather, Pool Party, and Balmy Blue ink. I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and wound a Purple Posy bow around it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set in Highland Heather ink. I stamped one of the snowflakes behind it, stamping off for the lighter shade. I adhered this over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I used the coordinating So Many Snowflakes Dies to cut out a bunch of snowflakes from Vellum cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Non-Christmas Peace & Joy Card

I just love the Peace & Joy Bundle – specifically the layering of the bubble letters!

And for a while I’ve wanted to make a non-Christmas card with it. I’m so excited to share what I put together.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock, which I covered with a Coastal Cabana pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the different images from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set on it in Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo ink (stamping off first for the little sparkles). I added a rhinestone over the sparkles and then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I stamped the “joy” from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana ink and cut it out with the coordinating Joy Dies. I used the same dies to cut out a Basic Black bubble for behind it. I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the “joy” work for a non-Christmas card, I pulled in the A Little Lace Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink, but snipped it up so I was just left with two pieces, which I adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!

Be sure to swing by my store to get this great bundle and all the fun product to go with it so you too can make this project!!

Stampin’ Up! Freezin’ Fun Racoon Card

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

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.

I then took a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I adhered a pattern from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock. I then used the Freezin’ Friends Dies to cut a snow slope from Whisper White cardstock. Above the slope I stamped the “whoosh” in Memento Black ink on the Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the raccoon from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using the Smoky Slate (raccoon), Poppy Parade (scarf and hat), and Soft Suede (sled) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut it out using the same dies and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Poppy Parade ink, cutting it out with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Finally, I used the All The Trimmings Embellishments to add a star over the tree and a white pom-pom at the end of the raccoon’s hat.

Stampin’ Up! Spotlight Technique with Joyful Holly Stamp

Who’s excited it’s Friday!

My card starts with Real Red cardstock, which I embossed using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I first stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a piece of it. I used Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler ink pads to color in just the piece that was cut out and matted it on a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a scalloped piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock to go to the left of cut out piece and adhered it all down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Shaded Spruce cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it. I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.

I used this technique here to customize the size of the die to the sentiment. (You can skip ahead to 17 mins to see how I did it.)

Lastly, I added a few rhinestones around.

Last Saturday was World Card Making.

Kinda cool that there’s a day celebrating what we all love doing so much!
Our team celebrated by going live every hour on the hour in a Facebook event with different presentations.

Today’s card is the one I shared!

My card starts off with Real Red Cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Tis the Season Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

** This Designer Series Paper (along with 14 others) is on sale RIGHT NOW! Read all about it and how you can grab a pack of free solid cardstock from me at the bottom of this post! **

I used the (GORGEOUS) Red Velvet Paper and Shaded Spruce cardstock and the Poinsettia Dies to create the sweetest 3D poinsettia. I glued a Beaded Pearl to the inside.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, cutting it using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
