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! Cottage Wreaths Easel Friendship Card

Here is a super simple fall-themed easel friendship card for you today! This card was created using only stamps, paper and a few embellishments. This is not my norm, I usually am die cutting something for my cards, but hey, I thought I would switch things up a bit!

If you haven’t purchased the Cottage Wreaths Bundle and the Gingham Cottage 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper yet, what are you waiting for? The Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set includes all the stamps you’ll need for the holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper is a huge pack of two-sided paper with one side being a smaller gingham print and the opposite side a larger gingham print.

For this fun fold easel card, I started with a card base in Early Espresso and made the necessary score lines (you’ll find the measurements in the pdf project sheet). I adhered a piece of the Gingham Cottage DSP to a Very Vanilla mat, then adhered this unit to the lower panel of the card front – gluing this panel to the lower panel of the card front only.

The stamped wreath on the card front was created by using different color inks and rotating the wreath stamp for each color and stamping the lightest color first, followed by the next darkest color, and so on. Rotating the wreath allowed the leaves to look layered! I go into specifics on the linked project sheet. Several acorns and berry clusters were also stamped on the wreath. This panel was matted to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.

Before adhering the stamped wreath panel to the card front, I first used a Stampin’ Blend to color some Linen Thread in Cherry Cobbler. Once dry, the colored thread was wrapped around the top of the card front (Very Vanilla and DSP panel) and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the wreath panel to the center of the card front. A double bow, which was also colored, was adhered to the wreath using a Mini Glue Dot.

A strip of coordinating Gingham Cottage DSP was added to the Very Vanilla inside panel at the bottom and I stamped several sets of leaves on this panel in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie inks. I then created a simple sentiment label and popped the label up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment label becomes the stop to hold up the easel portion of the card!

To finish off the card several Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to the wreath and sentiment label. Groups of leaves were stamped on the envelope front and a piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope flap.

This card was very quick to make. What do you think? I’m liking the simplicity of this card! I can imagine this exact same card in other color ways – like greens, reds, grays or pinks! This card design would be perfect for a fall birthday or Thanksgiving card too!

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! Celebrate Sunflowers Thank You Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Fall Frenzy”. We can interpret this theme any way that we want. Our Krew has lots of talented team members participating this month so be sure to check out their Hop posts! You can find navigation links further down on this page.

Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year! To me Fall brings so many good memories and I love the crisp, cool air and all of the smells and color that come with Fall. When I was thinking about my card for today, I immediately thought of the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. Sunflowers are glorious in the Summer but come Fall, they provide their bounty to feed the birds!

I started off with a card base in Basic Black and added a Crushed Curry embossed panel to the card front. I love the contrast between these two colors! I used the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the Crushed Curry panel then took the panel to my paper trimmer to trim off the top right corner of the panel to reveal more of the black base.

Next, I die cut the sunflower outline in Daffodil Delight cardstock using the Sunflower Dies. I used blender brushes to darken the center of the sunflower using Soft Suede ink and blended a little Pumpkin Pie ink around the middle of the sunflower. The sunflower outline was then adhered to a black square panel cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies, then adhered to a Crushed Curry mat. The sunflower center was adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Several die sets were used to die cut some foliage and a tree branch. The Harvest Dies set was used to cut a tree branch in Soft Suede. The remaining foliage was die cut using the Sunflowers Dies and were die cut from Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler. A sunflower leaf and leaf outline were die cut using Granny Apple Green. The foliage and tree branch were cut into shorter sections. The matted sunflower was placed on the card front in the upper left corner and the foliage, tree branches and leaf were dry fitted to determine placement before adhering.

The sentiment was stamped onto Crushed Curry cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then die cut using the largest banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I created a tassel from twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack. Instructions for creating the tassel are included in the pdf tutorial which is linked below.

The tassel was first adhered to the top center of the card using Stampin’ Seal and adjusted as needed so that the tassel would not cover up the sentiment, although it does hang slightly over the sentiment label. The matted sunflower was then adhered to the card front in the upper left corner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The foliage, tree branches and leaf were all tucked under the right side of the sunflower panel and glued into place. The sentiment label was added to the bottom center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off the card front I added multiple Amber gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack. These amber gems are beautiful!

To finish off the card a white panel was added to the inside of the card with a strip of the embossed Crushed Curry cardstock adorning the bottom of the panel. The small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set was stamped in Memento ink onto the envelope front and envelope flap then colored in with Stampin’ Blends in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake.

Ahhh, all of the glorious colors of Fall! This card makes me so happy!

Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute Pop-Up Halloween Card

The Scary Cute Stamp Set and Scary Silhouettes Dies were used to create today’s card. I made a pop-up card several weeks ago and chose to use the same fun fold on this card. What’s better than having scary images pop-up at you than in a Halloween card!

I started with a Gray Granite card base. I used a piece of the Black & White Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in a zig-zag pattern and colored the white areas in Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie and Highland Heather. I could have left the paper black and white, but I wanted a pop of color. This panel was adhered to the card front.

Using the Scary Silhouettes Dies I die cut a frame with branches from Basic Black cardstock, then cut a solid panel using just the rectangular die. These pieces became the sentiment label. The sentiment “Halloween Happiness” was stamped on the Gorgeous Grape die cut rectangle in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The rectangle and its frame were glued together and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I created the backdrop panel and used Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Gorgeous Grape and Starry Sky inks and blended an evening sky onto the white panel using blending brushes. This panel was glued to the backside of the card front (when the card is open, this would be the top card base panel).

Two strips of white cardstock were blended with Daffodil Delight and were then glued onto the top and front of the pop-up mechansim. I could have used Daffodil Delight cardstock for this but I wanted the yellow to appear seamless with the yellow sky of the large backdrop panel.

The haunted house, bats and cat were all die cut in Basic Black cardstock using the Scary Silhouettes Dies. I also die cut a branch and some greenery from the Harvest Dies in black cardstock. The branch becomes a tree and the greenery becomes a bush!

The yellow strips were glued to the top and front of the pop-up mechanism and the pop-up mechanism was glued into place at the 5-1/2″ score line and adhered to both inside panels of the card base. The haunted house, tree, bats and moon were all adhered to the large ink blended panel. The cat and shrub pieces were adhered to the front of the pop-up mechanism. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock to the width of the card and with a pair of snips, cut a hill and adhered this to the front of the pop-up mechanism as well.

A sentiment for the inside of the card was stamped onto a white panel, along with several bats, then matted to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock then adhered to the inside of the card.

To finish off the card, a large loopy bow was tied using the Black & White Gingham Ribbon and adhered to the card front, just under the sentiment label. I also used several purple Glossy Dots on the card front. The envelope front was decorated with bats stamped in Memento ink and the envelope flap was decorated with a coordinating piece of DSP.

This is such a fun set to play with! If you have young children or grandchildren, they would love to receive and display this card! I hope you give it a try!

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 Wonderful World Sympathy Card

I used the Wonderful World BundleWonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – to create today’s card. The Wonderful World stamp set, and paper makes a pretty, quick and easy card that would also be suitable as a birthday card or thinking of you card.

The Wonderful World Bundle is available as a free item with any qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration which is going on now through August 31. Don’t delay grabbing this bundle for yourself, though, as Sale-A-Bration items are selling out! The Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes and the Tree Lot Dies are sold out! [Stampin’ Up! has just added some more free products that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration, though. Be sure to read through to the end for info about those items.]

I started with a card base in Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered a panel of the beautiful Wonderful World DSP to the card front, followed by a coordinating strip of DSP to the left edge. A panel of Pear Pizzazz was die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies and a length of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was adhered horizontally across the bottom of the die cut panel. This panel was then adhered to the center of the card front.

From the large flower print Wonderful World DSP I fussy cut one of the white flowers and adhered the flower to the Pear Pizzazz panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A sentiment label was added in white cardstock with a Mossy Meadow mat using the Label Me Lovely Punch. The sentiment I used came from the Eden’s Garden Stamp Set and was stamped in Mossy Meadow. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow tied from the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was added to the left of the sentiment label and several Brushed Brass Butterflies adorn the card front.

One of the flower images from the Wonderful World Stamp set was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the inside label and adhered to the inside of the card. The same image was stamped onto the envelope front. A piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope to finish off the card.

The Wonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items! The stamped images or gorgeous, as is the paper! You’ll want this bundle to add to your stash for sure! But, as I mentioned, don’t delay…Sale-A-Bration items are selling out and we only have one month left of Sale-A-Bration!

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.
