Stampin’ Up Jingle Jingle Jingle (all the way) Holiday Card

I now have the Jingle Bells song stuck in my head! The Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set is adorable and has several large print stamps to make your Christmas cards festive and fun. I paired the stamps with paper from the Santa Express 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper which makes this card all the more fun!

I started off with a card base in Poppy Parade cardstock (which is a really awesome Christmas “red” by the way). Onto white cardstock I stamped the patterned “Jingle” stamp in Granny Apple Green ink then stamped the small jingle bell above the sentiment on the left in Daffodil Delight ink. This sentiment label was matted to a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock.

A second sentiment label was created using the sentiment “all the way” and stamped in Poppy Parade ink. This sentiment label was also matted to a piece of Granny Apple Green.

A piece of the Santa Express DSP was adhered to the card front and the sentiment labels were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The “Jingle” sentiment was set at a jaunty angle…just to make things fun…and the second sentiment label was adhered underneath. A small bow was tied with silver Simply Elegant Trim and adhered to the top sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot.

For the inside panel, I stamped several bells and a few stars in Daffodil Delight ink and did the same for the envelope front. The envelope flap was finished off with coordinating DSP.

I’m looking forward to playing some more with this stamp set to create some more fun holiday cards. Cards made with the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set would be great to give to kids…of all ages!!! You can find the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set at the Santa Express 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Scottie Holiday Card

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed a great weekend. We had some really awesome weather here on the east coast with blue skies and perfect temps!

Who can resist a cute little dog with a pretty red bow? Not me! As soon as I saw the Christmas Scottie Bundle in the catalog, I knew I had to have it! And since I’m a Westie mom, this cute Scottie may become a Westie on a future card!

My card today primarily involves stamping, punching of the Scottie and bow, and adhering the layers to the card…that’s it! You can make this card in minutes.

I started by second-generation stamping snowflakes in Balmy Blue on the white panel, then stamping the long ribbon in Real Red ink around the perimeter of the panel. Next the sentiment was stamped directly onto the white panel. The Scottie and bow were stamped and punched using the coordinating Scottie Dog Punch. The bow was adhered to the Scottie then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals, to adhere the dog to the panel. The white panel was adhered to its Real Red mat, then this unit was adhered to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped an additional greeting and second generation stamped snowflakes around the perimeter of the white panel. The panel was adhered to it’s Real Red mat and then adhered to the inside of the card.

To finish up I stamped snowflakes on the envelope front and envelope flap and added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

It doesn’t get any easier than this! I hope you’ll give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Holiday Card

I have another holiday card for you today. This card is a little more involved than yesterday’s card, but it still comes together quickly once all of the stamping and die cutting is completed!

I have been holding off on sharing the Leaves of Holly Bundle with you because the bundle went out of stock…but, it’s back in stock now. If you like what you see, I highly recommend you order the bundle and paper before it’s gone again! I think you’ll agree this bundle makes for some beautiful holiday cards!

I started with a card base of Mossy Meadow. Half of the card front was covered with a panel of the gorgeous Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, and the other half of the card front was covered with a panel of embossed white cardstock. This panel was embossed using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder (this embossing folder includes two patterns – pine needles and snowflakes).

I stamped two of the small holly leaves and two of the large holly leaves from the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow and Evening Evergreen ink then used the coordinating dies from the Holly Berry Dies set to die cut. Several pine needles were also die cut using dies from the same set. These were die cut in Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzazz cardstocks.

The Holly Berry Dies also includes a beautiful sentiment label with holly leaves. This intricate die cuts a thin border around the sentiment label which means that if you wanted to pop the sentiment label up with Stampin’ Dimensionals you would need to do some very fine scissor cutting on the Stampin’ Dimensionals in order to hold this thin border up, or you could simply adhere the sentiment label directly to the card front without using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I went a different route (it’s my specialty…what can I say). I adhered the sentiment label to a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock then fussy cut around the sentiment label. There is already a die to cut a background for the holly berries on the sentiment label, so I only added a piece of cardstock behind the label. This allowed me to pop up the sentiment label using dimensionals.

The die cut holly leaves and pine needles, along with some stamped and die cut berries and a few Gold Holly Leaves were dry fit around the sentiment label and adhered with either liquid glue or Mini Glue Dots. I also looped a length of gold Simply Elegant Trim and tucked this under the sentiment label as well. A few gold Festive Pearls were added to finish off the card front.

The inside of the white card panel was stamped with an additional sentiment and a narrow piece of coordinating DSP was added to the side of this panel, then the panel was matted onto a piece of Real Red cardstock and adhered to the inside of the card. The envelope flap was also decorated with a piece of coordinating DSP and the envelope front was stamped with holly leaves.

And this completes today’s card. I will be using this bundle to make a lot of holiday cards for sure! So beautiful! You can find the Boughs of Holly Suite in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up Wisteria Wishes Christmas Card

The Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set makes beautiful wisteria blossoms hanging down from their vines, but did you know that when you turn the wisteria blossom stamps upside down they become pine trees? I have been anxiously awaiting the time I could show you this stamp set’s alternative use!

Today’s card features the Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set for a simple, quick, and easy card that you can put together for the holidays.

I started with a card base in Evening Evergreen and adhered a Soft Succulent mat to the card front. Who else loves these two colors together? A panel of Basic White cardstock was embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder then adhered to the card front – on top of the Soft Succulent mat.

A square of white cardstock was used to ink blend a “snow” hill onto the cardstock. I used Post It notes to mask off the hill and then blended in Starry Sky ink using blending brushes. I then used the 3-image wisteria blossom stamp and stamped pine trees first in Soft Succulent ink making sure that the base of the pine trees sat on the “snow hill” (the white area). I stamped the same image again, dropping the stamp a little lower. I then came back with the single wisteria blossom stamp and stamped over the trees in Evening Evergreen ink. The wisteria stamps make beautiful pine trees!

From the ink blended and stamped piece of cardstock I used one of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies set to die cut a partial scene. I also die cut a mat for this circle in Evening Evergreen using a slightly larger scalloped circle die.

A chose a sentiment from the Trees for Sale Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock. The sentiment was die cut using the Layering Circles dies again, and an Evening Evergreen scalloped circle was added as a mat.

Both the sentiment label and the pine tree circle were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment was placed in the upper left of the card front and the pine trees circle was placed in the lower right of the card front. A double bow was tied using Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered between the two circle groupings with a Mini Glue Dot. Several green Festive Pearls were also adhered to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I again masked the inside of the card using Post It Notes and blended in a Starry Sky. The pine trees were stamped using Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. The inside panel was adhered to a Soft Succulent mat then adhered to the inside of the card. The envelope front and envelope flap were also ink blended and stamped with pine trees (wisteria blossoms).

Multiple cards with this design could be made quickly by simply expanding the size of white cardstock that you ink blend and stamp, allowing you to cut multiple circles of the ink blended background and pine trees! This design would also make a wonderful winter birthday card for either a male or female. Maybe leave the bow off if giving to a male or replace the ribbon with twine or linen thread.

I hope you enjoy this card project! I know I had fun creating it and it was so easy to put together!

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Holiday Card

Happy Friday! I hope you all had an enjoyable week and found some time to craft!

If you enjoy a little sparkle on your holiday cards…this one is for you! I used the Spruced Up Stamp Set and Spruced Up Outlines Dies along with several specialty papers to create this card. Specifically, the Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Real Red & White Glimmer Paper…so pretty!

Today’s card was inspired by a team member of mine, Tarabeth. She recently made a beautiful card using some of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful specialty and glimmer papers and she reminded me that I hadn’t pulled out my pretty paper yet! If you have a chance…check out Tarabeth’s blog…she creates some beautiful cards! Thank you for the inspiration, Tarabeth!

I started with a Thick Basic White cardstock and adhered a piece of the Lights Aglow paper to the card front. I chose the black bokeh print paper. The second to largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies was used to die cut a circle from the red glimmer paper. I also die cut a small tree from the Spruced Up Outlines Dies in red glimmer paper, and a large tree in white glimmer paper. As you can see the dies from the Spruced Up Outlines Dies cuts not only the inside image, but an outside, or outline image as well…very cool!

I pulled out my package of the Wonderful Snowflakes which are irredescent and added a snowflake to the red glitter circle, using glue to adhere the snowflake. A piece of Real Red ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack was adhered to the back side of the Lights Aglow panel vertically and secured with a little Stampin’ Seal. The red glitter circle and snowflake unit were adhered to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, the red and white glitter trees were arranged on the right lower side of the panel. The solid red tree and the red outline tree were adhered to the panel using glue and the white glitter solid tree was adhered over top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I chose a greeting from the Window Wishes Stamp Set and stamped this on a small piece of white cardstock. The sentiment label was trimmed down and I cut a banner on the right side of the sentiment label. The label was then adhered to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The bokeh panel was then adhered to the card front. I added some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front for some more sparkle! Oh, and I colored Wink of Stella on the Real Red Ribbon also.

For the inside white panel, I stamped one of the trees from the Spruced Up Stamp Set in Real Red ink and stamped an additional greeting in Memento ink – also from the Window Wishes Stamp Set. I then adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and adhered this unit to the inside of the card.

Of course, the envelope was decorated, too! The same tree was stamped in Real Red ink on the lower front of the envelope and a piece of coordinating Lights Aglow paper was adhered to the envelope flap then fussy cut around the flap.

Whew! This seems like a lot but in all honesty this card came together very quickly. I hope you enjoyed today’s creation and give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Regal Reindeer Christmas Card

The Regal Reindeer Stamp Set and Reindeer Dies create a beautiful forest holiday scene! The image of the trio of pine trees in this set is one of the prettiest I have seen! I’m a push-over for images that can be stamped and colored (in case you haven’t noticed by now – insert smile…) but I think you’ll enjoy playing with the Regal Reindeer Bundle too!

I started off with an Evening Evergreen cardstock card base. The card front was built onto a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock and matted with black.

The images of the little girl, reindeer and pine trees were stamped onto Basic White cardstock and colored using a variety of Stampin’ Blends. But these images could easily be colored using markers or watercolor pencils…the choice is yours!

The colored images were die cut using the coordinating Reindeer Dies, along with two snowbanks and the stamped sentiment label. I wanted to bring some richness into the card front, so I also die cut a single pine tree, star and several bells from Gold Foil Sheets. The gold was the perfect touch!

The scene was assembled onto the Soft Succulent panel, and I added specs of white craft ink for falling snow onto the panel and added some Wink of Stella on the snowbanks and tree limbs just to add a little sparkle.

The card front was finished off with a bow tied from Gold & Vanilla Satin Edge Ribbon and several gold Festive Pearls.

The trio of pine trees were also stamped and colored on the inside panel as well as the envelope front and envelope flap.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Christmas Card with Silver Accents

The Spruced Up Stamp Set and the Spruced Up Outlines Dies from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog is a must have for making quick and easy holiday cards! The items are sold as a Bundle, too, so you save 10% when you order them together.

The dies in the Spruced Up Outlines Dies do exactly what they say. The dies cut out an outline and an insert! For my card today, I ran the ornament dies and the gift die through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine twice – once in Parakeet Party cardstock and once in Garden Green cardstock. I used the Garden Green “outlines” and the Parakeet Party inserts on my card today. But, you can use the die cut pieces separately if you choose for a completely different look! I also stamped on the inserts using the snowflake stamp from the Spruced Up Stamp Set in the same color – Parakeet Party – for a tone-on-tone look.

My card sits on a Parakeet Party card base with a panel of the Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper which is a Sale-A-Bration item. The specialty paper was matted onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock and the entire panel was popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also popped up the sentiment label and the gift box for added dimension. A Garden Green bow was added to the smaller ornament followed by silver Festive Pearls to finish off the card.

If you’re looking for a brighter pop of color when using these dies, how about die cutting the ornaments and the gift from some pretty Christmas DSP? I think it would make for a stunning card!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Gingerbread Bundle Christmas Card

Today’s card uses the Sweet Gingerbread Bundle (Stamps and Dies). This bundle is so much fun to play with!

I started with a card base in Early Espresso. I added a Pool Party panel to the front of the card then stamped and die cut all of the components to create the gingerbread house and scenery.

I used the curvy die from the bundle to create a snowbank from white cardstock. The snowbank was adhered on top of the Pool Party panel. I adhered the gingerbread house to the card front and paper pieced the windows and door.

Next, sections of the fence were adhered to the card front. The pine trees, wreath, gumdrops and lollipops were all adhered to the card front using Mini Glue Dots. The stone pathway was adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock and I cut a banner on the right side of the sentiment label then adhered the sentiment label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the black and white Gingham Ribbon and adhered this to the top of the sentiment label at an angle. Adhesive-backed Seasonal Sequins were added to finish the card front.

A sentiment was added to a white card panel and I stamped two of the pine trees on the lower portion of this panel. The panel was then adhered to the inside of the card. The same pine trees also adorn the envelope.

All of the cutting dimensions and instructions are included on the linked project sheet. To view the project sheet, click on the image below.

Stampin’ Up! Santa Express

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week and you have lots of fun planned for the weekend! We will be celebrating our youngest son’s birthday this weekend!

I’ve been working on Christmas cards this week from the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack which coordinate with the Santa Express Memories & More Cards and Envelopes. So fun! The card pack and cards and envelopes provide enough supplies to complete a total of 20 cards. You will need to add ribbon, embellishments, and inside panels if you so desire, but these cards can stand on their own, too! I did add cardstock panels on the insides of my cards.

Here’s a peek of a few more cards that I whipped up. To view full size images, click on one of the pictures then you’ll be able to scroll through all of the photos.

I will be sending my 20 cards to a local area hospital for the chronically ill. A group of us in my area provide cards to this facility each month as the residents at this hospital don’t have family to visit them. They really look forward to receiving cards and it lets them know that someone cares!

Be sure to check these items out…especially if you send out a lot of cards around the holidays! You can find the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack and Cards & Envelopes in the current Mini Catalog on page 17. Links are included below.

Have a wonderful weekend! Stay crafty!
