Stampin’ Up! Celebrate With Tags

Many of us have started making our Christmas cards in preparation for the holidays, but don’t forget to make gift tags!

The Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set and Celebrations Tag Dies are great for creating gift tags and gift card holders. Pull out the paper of your choice, ribbon and embellishments and have some FUN creating your gift tags!

For my tags I used the Real Red & White 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper, the Lights Aglow 6″ x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ paper is a Sale-A-Bration item…but only through August 31st…so grab it now!

For one of the tags and the gift card holder I used red glimmer paper and die cut a snowflake from the Celebrations Tag Dies. For the white and gold tag, I stamped the mittens and a sentiment from the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set and die cut the pieces to decorate the tag front.

If you’d like to stamp an additional sentiment on the inside of your gift tag, just run a second piece of cardstock through with the tag die, glue to the outer tag, stamp your sentiment on the inside of the tag and done! You can also cut the inside tag in half and glue just one side to the inside of your outer tag if you’re looking to conserve card stock (shown below).

I had a blast making these tags and they are quick and easy! I hope you’ll give them a try!

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Get Well Card

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed a nice weekend! Our weather here in the Mid-Atlantic has been beautiful and me and the Westies have been spending time on our deck relaxing!

The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and the Apple Blossom Dies along with the Gingham Cottage 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper were used to create today’s card. This set creates beautiful cards that could be used for birthdays, friendship, and thinking of you cards as well!

The Apple Harvest Stamp Set can be found in the July-December Mini Catalog but you won’t find the Apple Blossom Dies in any catalog. The Apple Blossom Dies are being offered during the Perfect Partners promotion which begins on September 1 and ends on September 30.

Stampin’ Up! has released 6 die sets that coordinate with various stamp sets in the Annual and Mini catalogs and the Apple Blossom Dies are part of this offer! You can purchase the Apple Blossom Dies along with the Apple Harvest Stamp Set as a bundle and save 10% on the bundle purchase price, or if you already own the Apple Harvest Stamp Set, purchase just the Apple Blossom Dies to complete your set. You’ll want these dies! Check out the beautiful apple blossoms you can create using the dies!

Here are the item numbers for the stamp set, dies and bundle. You won’t find the bundle or the dies in any catalog, so you’ll need these order numbers if you’d like to purchase the bundle or dies:

  • Apple Harvest Stamp Set – #159944 (July-December 2022 Mini Catalog)
  • Apple Blossoms Dies – #160255
  • Apple Harvest Bundle (includes stamps and dies) – #162526 (10% Bundled Savings!)

I started off with a Thick Basic White card base and added a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the card front. On a Basic White panel I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the apple image. The image of the trellis was also second generation stamped around this panel in Granny Apple Green ink to fill in some of the negative space and to add interest. The apple image was colored in using Stampin’ Blends.

The Apple Blossom Dies were used to create three apple blossoms. I used a sponge dauber and Blushing Bride ink to put a little color on the ends of the blossom petals and used Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color the blossom stamens. The blossom petals and stamens were curled towards the centers, then the stamens were adhered to the center of the flowers using a small drop of liquid glue.

The sentiment was stamped onto a sentiment label and a sponge dauber was used to blend a little Granny Apple Green ink around the label edges. The stamped and colored apple panel and the sentiment label were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment label slightly overlaps the edge of the stamped panel.

A double bow was tied using linen thread and the bow was adhered to the top of the apple branch. The die cut apple blossoms were then adhered to the card front using glue.

A partial image of the same stamp used on the card front was also stamped on the inside panel as well as the envelope front and colored in using Stampin’ Blends. A coordinating piece of the Gingham Cottage DSP adorns the envelope flap.

This completes today’s card! What beautiful images this bundle creates!

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Thinking of You Card

This Thinking of You card uses the Rustic Harvest 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, some fussy cutting, a little cardstock and a few embellishments. The Rustic Harvest paper is beautiful and can stand on its own, or you can do a little fussy cutting to take your card to the next level. What gorgeous paper!

I started with a card base in Cajun Craze and added a panel of the Rustic Harvest paper in Crushed Curry to the card front. Next, a section of the Rustic Harvest paper pattern with flowers and black background was used to fussy cut around the flowers. This panel was adhered to the card front.

The sentiment label was matted in Cajun Craze and stretches across the bottom width of the card to add some visual interest.

Several additional flowers and a leaf were also fussy cut, and these were popped up on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I fussy cut three of the small butterflies from the DSP. To add a little dimension the butterfly wings were slightly bent upwards and only one wing was adhered to the card front with the second wing of the butterflies raised up slightly. A few Matte Black Dots adorn the card front as well.

A strip of DSP was added to the inside panel of the card and coordinating DSP adorns the envelope flap.

Cardmaking doesn’t get any easier than this using some pretty paper and minimal supplies! You’ll want to add the Rustic Harvest 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to your shopping cart!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Holiday Card

This handsome Penguin is delivering gifts, candy and a whole lot of Christmas cheer! How cute is this little guy?

I used the Penguin Place Stamp Set, Penguin Builder Punch and the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set to create this card along with the Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and Red & White Glimmer Paper. All of these items can be found in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

The card base is in Evening Evergreen and a piece of the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper was adhered to the card front. The Penguin was stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the beak and feet were stamped in Mango Melody ink, and the bow tie was stamped in Real Red ink. I then used the Penguin Builder Punch to punch out the penguin.

The gift stamp from the Penguin Place Stamp Set was used and I stamped this image three times in three different color inks – Evening Evergreen, Real Red and Soft Succulent. The Santa hat and candy canes were also stamped onto white cardstock. The Santa hat was first stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and the center of the hat was colored in using a Real Red Stampin’ Blend marker. The candy canes were stamped in Real Red ink. All of these stamped pieces were then fussy cut.

A piece of white glimmer paper was used for the snowy hill. I started with a piece of glimmer paper measuring 4-1/8″ wide by approximately 2″ tall. I then used my paper snips to hand cut the hill. You could use a die to die cut the hill, but it was just as easy to hand cut. Just remember to keep the curves in your hill smooth when cutting. The snowy hill was then adhered to the card front using glue. Glue was only applied towards the bottom of the hill. I lined up the bottom of the hill with the bottom of the DSP panel on the card front.

I adhered the Santa hat to the top of the Penguin’s head and the Penguin was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I placed the Penguin on the top center of the snowy hill. The candy canes were tucked slightly under the snowy hill and to the left of the Penguin at slight angles. The gifts were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and stacked one on top of the other, again at slight angles to each other.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock and adhered to a piece of coordinating DSP. The sentiment label was attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A small bow was tied using Real Red ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered to the left of the sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot.

The pine tree stamp from the Penguin Place Stamp Set was stamped onto the inside panel in Evening Evergreen ink along with an additional sentiment. This panel was then adhered to the inside of the card. The same pine tree was stamped onto the envelope front. A piece of coordinating DSP was adhered to the envelope flap and fussy cut.

To finish off the card multiple Rhinestone Basic Jewels were applied to the card front.

I love happy cards and this card is definitely happy! Young or old, this card is sure to bring a smile to the recipients’ face!

All are welcome to join us for this fun-filled day!  We’ll be setting up a Facebook page to host the event and will be sharing the link to the page in late September.  Keep an eye out on my blog for more details!

World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, Stampin’ Up! will walk you through several projects, and you can create the cards along with the presenters.  You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!

Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove Encouragement Card

I’ve used the Grassy Grove Stamp Set and Grove Dies to make several cards in the past – one was a spring themed card and the other was a summer themed card. Today I’m using the Grassy Grove stamps and dies to create a fall-themed card. Here are the previous cards made from the Grassy Grove set.

I love the versatility of these stamps and dies!

For today’s card I started with a card base in Crushed Curry. I first created a background that would sit behind the large tree die cut frame and I stamped a row of pine trees towards the bottom of this panel then used blending brushes to create the sky using Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape.

For the tree frame die cut I used blending brushes again to color the entire frame in Daffodil Delight ink, then came back with Mossy Meadow to blend a little green onto the die cut frame for the leaves on the trees. Crushed Curry was also blended in spots to darken the tree canopy. A Stampin’ Blend was used on the frame to darken some of the leaves in Cajun Craze then I blended this out a bit with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. The tree trunks were colored in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. The die cut tree frame was adhered to the background panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then this unit was adhered to a Mossy Meadow mat and adhered to the card front with liquid glue.

For the foreground of the scene, I stamped the small hill and used sponge daubers to ink up the stamp in Mossy Meadow, Gorgeous Grape and Crushed Curry then stamped this on white cardstock. This image was die cut and adhered to the die cut tree frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Several greenery sprigs were die cut in Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green and tucked under the hill die cut.

A sentiment from the Hope & Prayer Stamp Set was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock then adhered to a mossy meadow mat. A small linen thread double bow was adhered to the upper left of the sentiment label along with a small leaf sprig.

Pine trees were stamped in Mossy Meadow on the inside panel and this panel was adhered to a Mossy Meadow mat, then adhered inside of the card base. Pine trees also adorn the envelope front and envelope flap.

The Grassy Grove Stamp Set and Grove Dies are one of my favorite sets! I’ve started planning how I’ll create a winter scene with this set and I already have some ideas on how to accomplish this – it has become a personal challenge for me to create a card for each season using this set.

This is such a satisfying set to play with! I was going to say it is a satisfying set to “work” with…but that wouldn’t be accurate…it’s too much fun! I hope you give this card a try and put your own spin on a fall scene.

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!
