Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card

I then took three different patterns from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card

I used the Merriest Moments Bundle to create my flower cluster. I stamped the poinsettias in Cherry Cobbler ink, greenery in Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

**Please note that this bundle is a trio bundle (stamps, dies, embossing folder), so the dies are sold as a combo with the embossing folder #156385.

Under the poinsettia, I wound some Gold Thread and added some Gold Pearls.

Lastly, I stamped the “Joy” from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler ink, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas to Remember Christmas Card

Who’s excited for next Tuesday?!?!

On the outside it looks like a regular Tuesday, but oh, it’s not!

Our July-December Mini Catalog goes live and Sale-a-bration Aug 3rd!!!!!!
Need a catalog, you can request one here.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.

I then used the Christmas Pinecone Dies to cut out pines from Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz cardstock and pinecones from Soft Suede and Early Espresso cardstock.

*These were a little tricky to cut out. You’ll definitely want the roll end of the Take Your Pick tool to get all the little pieces out. And then I suggest you start adhering them together bit by bit.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember in Garden Green ink and then cut it out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I also used the die that cuts out little slit to be able to tie a gold bow through.

Ribbon tip: I don’t actually tie the bow using the ribbon I wrap around. I wrap the ribbon around, secure it underneath the label, and then tie a separate bow that I just adhere it next to the sentiment.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!

This product will go live Aug 3rd – so be sure to add it to your Wish List.

Sale-a-bration is just around the corner, starting Aug 3rd.

During it, you can receive the Summer Shadows Dies for free with a $100 order (while supplies last). They layer beautifully over one another, making really lovely cards.

Stampin' Up! Summer Shadows Dies Card

I used them for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop color challenge.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop July 29- Color Challenge- Pick At Least3 Pale Papaya Calypso Coral Pear Pizzarı Balmy Blue Mango Melody'

My card today starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock, which I imprinted using the Stitched Greenery Dies.

Stampin' Up! Summer Shadows Dies Card

I then used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out a large rectangle label from Basic White cardstock. I wound around some Pale Papaya Ribbon in a knot and stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink.

I then adhered this on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Summer Shadows Dies Card

Next, I used the Summer Shadows Dies to cut out flowers from Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya cardstock and leaves from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Thank You Card

You’ve heard it before – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

You might look at today’s card and think – that looks vaguely familiar…
And you’d be right! I was inspired by a previous card I made.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Thank You Card

Whenever you’re making a card and looking for inspiration, go back to a favorite past card that you’ve made and CASE it. To CASE means to copy and selectively edit.

You may CASE the card layout or the colors or the whole card, but it’s a great jumping off point.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Thank You Card

Today’s card uses brand new product that will be FREE beginning Aug 3rd the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set.

We’re getting a second Sale-a-bration (can you hear me cheering all the way from NY?) and it includes lots of free stamp sets and Designer Series Paper that you can earn for free with a qualifying order.

Stampin’ up! Sweet Strawberry Hello There Card

I’m a sucker for anything fruit and the Sweet Strawberry Bundle doesn’t disappoint!

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock. I then took a Polished Pink pattern from the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper and adhered it on an angle.

*I shared a quick motion video on how to make this card over on Pinterest. You can check out that pin here.*

I then stamped the strawberries, leaves, and stems in Memento Black ink. I colored the leaves in with So Saffron and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and the strawberries in Polished Pink ink.

I punched the strawberries and stems out using the Strawberry Builder punch and fussy cut out the leaves, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment right under the Designer Series Paper and added a couple of rhinestones around.
