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.

Stampin’ Up! Ombre Peace & Joy Christmas Card

Happy Monday!

I hope you were able to get some stamping in this weekend.
Here in Upstate New York, the weather is getting chilly, which is perfect stamping weather – my favorite!!

Today’s card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper, divided it in two, and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

**This beautiful Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper is on sale right now – 15% off – along with a variety of other paper as well. All the details are at the bottom of this post.**

I then took Balmy Blue and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. I colored a piece of Whisper White cardstock from the top to the bottom using Light Highland Heather, Dark Highland Heather, Dark Balmy Blue, and Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marrkers. I cut it out with the Joy Dies.

I used the same Joy Dies to cut out a Whisper White and then Highland Heather bubble letters to mat the colorful “Bright” on. I then stamped the “merry and” in Highland Heather ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut them out.

Lastly, I added a Glitter Star embellishment under the sentiment.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Trio of Peace & Joy Card Video Tutorial

I love bubble matting around words…
And usually have to fussy cut to get the effect.

However, the Peace & Joy Bundle is so fun that it creates the bubbling around the words peace, joy, and bright for you.
And you can layer them up in so many different ways.

Last week for my Facebook live, I did a trio of cards – you might say, something for everyone!

A simple card for a beginner stamper (or someone short on time), a card for an intermediate stamper who likes a simpler card and has a few techniques under their belt, and a card for an avid stamper – someone who wants all the bells and whistles.

They all use the same basic layout and design, but at the same time, three different cards.

Be sure to join me tonight at 7:30 EST on my Facebook page for another live tutorial!  I’m going to be using the Stitched Triangles Dies and making simple, artistic cards.

If you’ve ever missed a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube Channel.

Check out the video below to see how I created today’s trio of cards:
