Evergreen

This Evergreen stamp Set is so versatile and I love the Silent Night poem that you can use by itself or over a stamped tree image.

  • I used the Labels Framelits dies on the DSP and the Cherry Cobbler card stock. It frames out the tree nicely.
  • I dry embossed the Cherry Cobbler with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.
  • The Glimmer Paper can be colored with any of the inks to give you the perfect color. Here the star is a perfect shade of gold. I finished it off with the shimmery gold ribbon.

If you have a large Christmas card list this is a super easy and quick card to make. I adore the snow flakes.

  • This is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card and I used the stamp set Snowflake Soiree.
  • It’s hard to see in the picture but I scored 3 lines across the card near the bottom using the Simply Scored Tool. This creates some interest and texture on the card. To finish it off I added Rhinestones to the centers and all the points on the large snowflake.

I hope you enjoyed this card, if so please share and/or comment below, Thank you!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Snowflake Soiree

I love snow at Christmas time and unfortunately, I don’t live  where it snows anymore. I grew up in the Mid-West and for sure there was always plenty of snow that just glistened at night when all the Christmas lights were lit up. This card reminds me of those fond memories and is a double version of the Triple Layered Card.

  • I have the base in Midnight Muse at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, the second mat is 4 1/2 x 3 1/4. Whispering white is 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 1/4 x 3.
  • Start by placing the 2 white pieces of card stock on top of each other. I put a bit of Snail on the back and rub it a couple times with my finger to create a temporary adhesive so the papers don’t slide.
  • I used 3 of the stamps from Snowflake Soiree and stamped off  Pacific Point for the back ground and then again in full color. When finished I separated the two white sheets and adhered them to the blue mats.
  • I tied some ribbon around the first layer before attaching to the base. I also added some sparkle by placing Rhinestones on the front snowflake. These cards are a little more time consuming bu,t oh so pretty :)

Thank you for stopping by. If you enjoyed this card I hope you’ll share it with others and/or comment below.

Oh Christmas Tree…..

Evergreen

What says Christmas better than a Christmas tree… This delightful Evergreen stamp set gives you several looks to choose from and of course, you can add additional embellishments for a very special look. The red (Cherry Cobbler) and green (Gumball Green) are very traditional colors but can be swapped out for any colors you’d like. This is a fairly easy card to mass produce if you have a large card list.

  • I stamped the tree in Gumball Green ink and them came back over it with the Versamark so I could emboss it with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. It gives it a pretty shiny finish. I love the outlined look on the tree.
  • I layered the Whispering White and DSP Festival of Prints and added the Gumball 3/8″ Stitched Ribbon around it. They might be kind of hard to see but, I scattered some Rhinestones on the DSP right of the tree. It gives a little sparkle to the card. The Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment fits beautifully in the bottom corner.

Oh! I do believe that snowmen are delightful balls of snow with a bit of magic that spreads Love and Joy to all those who Believe. I cased this wonderful card from Stamping with Tami. I fell in love with it from when I first saw it.

  • The cherry cobbler makes for a great base color for this card with it’s soft browns and very vanilla paper. The eyes and mouth were easy to create with punches and the nose was freehand.
  • Crumb cake gave the background stamp some softness and nicely aged the card a bit. The bottom fan look was created with a finishing touched edgelit. Chocolate chip polka dot ribbon with an antique brad adds a whimsy finish.

Bountiful Blessings

 

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Thanksgiving to me is a very special day to be grateful for all we have. Although I give thanks daily for my blessings, this gives us an opportunity to share them with family and friends. I love that!

This is a pretty simple card and I love that I could color it in. I’m bummed though that something got dripped on it.

  • I used watercolor paper and ink to watercolor it in. It took several layers to get the shading right. I started out with the lightest colors and then added darker ones.
  • This was simple layering of card stock and DS paper with a little bling!

Mojo Monday – Giving Thanks

Mojo Monday

It always seem that once Halloween has passed, Thanksgiving slips through the cracks and we’re on to Christmas. For this Mojo Monday Challenge I’m using rich Fall colors and a Thanksgiving greeting. This card has a lot of texture going on.

 

 

  • I really like using the large oval punch to create this pumpkin. Perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I inked the edges with pumpkin pie to give it a pop and added a small flower for some interest.
  • The base was put in an embossing folder to create the background. You could probably add some distressing ink if you wanted to age it a bit.
  • Handmade roses were rolled from a 1 inch circle punch in three different colors and a bit of 1/4″ ribbon.
  • A tag was cut out from a die and I stamped the sentiment in early espresso. I tied some linen thread to give it a finished look.

I hope this inspires you to create some Thanksgiving cards for your family and friends. Keep an eye out Christmas Card ideas are Coming Soon.

Using More Than Just Stamps For Stamping

Stamping

I couldn’t resist using Fall colors and leaves to make this Birthday card for my oldest son. He turns 24 tomorrow (8/15). It makes for a nice masculine card. A card that seems to challenge many card makers.

  • I didn’t use a typical stamp set. I went out into my front yard and pulled a couple leaves off the tree. I would of used different shaped leaves if I had had them.
  • I pressed the leaf onto the ink pad and gently pressed trying to get good coverage. I had to come back with a dobber with more color and it still didn’t cover like I had hoped, but I’m happy with how they turned out.
  • I placed the leaf on the paper and again gently using my fingers pressed down on the leaf.

I adhered the Very Vanilla onto the Festival of Prints that can be found in the Holiday Catalog. I wrapped some Linen thread around it a couple time and added a Natural button. The Happy Birthday is from the Curly Cute stamp set.

Triple Time Stamping Technique

Triple Time Stamping Technque

I recently learned about this “Triple Time Stamping technique” and absolutely Love It! It makes it so easy to create your own patterned background. I just got a Christmas stamp set that will be perfect for this.

Paper measurements:

Very Vanilla

2 x 3 1/4

3 x 4 1/4

4 x 5 1/2

Pumpkin Pie

2 1/4 x 3 1/2

3 1/4 x 4 1/2

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (fold for base)

 

  • Start out by stacking the Very Vanilla pieces together using a temporary adhesive because when you are finished stamping they need to come apart and be mounted to the Pumpkin Pie.
  • I used the Hello Stamp from the retired set Elementary Elegance and stamped that first in Early EspressoTriple Time

 

  • I used my lightest color, Crumb Cake to begin the background stamping. I used a stamp from a set called Clear stamp. It’s not from Stampin’ Up! I started from the center and worked out. You want to do that with each of the colors.
  • Next was Real Red and I used the stamp set Papaya Collage, first the flower and then the butterfly.
  • When you separate the Very Vanilla pieces and mount them to the Pumpkin Pie be sure you don’t turn them upside down. The images should line up when it’s all put together.
  • Before mounting I tied Linen thread around the top two layers and added a natural button for a little pop!

Give this Triple Time stamping technique a try I know you’ll fall in love with it too.

Stamping 411 Challenge Using Blossom Petals Punch

stamping 411

I’m trying out yet another challenge this week called Stamping 411. This was a very simple layout and I do love flowers. Now the sketch is not limited to just flowers so let your imagination soar!

 

  • I stayed with using Stampin’ Up’ bright colors Daffodil Delight and Old olive. I really like the soft polka dots from the Brights designer paper. It made for a great flower.
  • The base is Daffodil Delight. I added another layer, Whispering White that I ran through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot folder. Before attaching it to the base I wrapped around the 1/2″ seam binding ribbon in Daffodil Delight.

  • To create the flower and leaves I used the Blossom Petals Punch. This is so versatile and creates several  types of flower looks. For this flower I used the smallest and the next size up petal. I started with a 1″ circle. I used 12 of the larger petals and glued them in 2 layers of 6. Then I added 6 of the smallest petals and let it all dry thoroughly.
  • I took a Rich Razzleberry button from the Brights Button Collection and tied some linen thread through it. I glued it to the center with glue dots. The flower was added using dimentionals. I carefully tucked in the leaves with glue dots.
  • For the the sentiment frame I used the large oval punch for the center and Lots of Tag Sizzlits for the outside frame.

I hope you enjoyed this sample from the Stamping 411 challenge. I encourage you to try it yourself. Feel free to browse my site for more card making ideas
