Merry and Bright Christmas!

Christmas is around the corner and I’m still in the process of making Christmas cards.   I’m using the Making Christmas Bright Photopolymer Bundle and All is Bright DSP to make cards from these products.  One of the cards I created is based on the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The bundle comes with the stamp set and coordinating bulb punch which makes is super easy to create very merry Christmas cards.

I used the lattice from the Petals and More thinlits and the circle from the Layering Circles thinlits sets.  I used gold fold for the latice to give a rich look.  The cording is from the holiday catalog.  The sentiment is stamped on Crumb Cake with Call me Clover ink.  The end were punched using retired ticket corner punch.  The cute light bulb were stamped then die cut with the Christmas bulb builder punch then used the gold cording to string them.

I will post more of my Christmas cards over then next couple of weeks.

A Winter Woods Christmas Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is and inspiration challenge.  The Christmas images inspired me to use the Winter Woods stamp set which is in the  Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set coordinates with the In the Woods Framelits dies which makes it easy to die cut the trees.  I wanted to create a simple card I could easily duplicate and came up with this snowy scene.

Stampin Up Winter Woods Christmas cardI die cut the trees from Sparkle Glimmer paper along with the snow drift.  The sentiment is from Timeless Tidings and die cut with the 1-3/4″ circle punch and the red frame was die cut using the 2″ circle punch.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder.  I finished the card with the 3/8″ Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon and basic rhinestones.

A Fox Falling for Leaves

It’s fall and there is so many beautiful colors in the trees and leaves.  Where I live there is also wildlife life deer, bunnies, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, opossum and foxes.  Almost every night I see deer and a fox in our neighborhood.  Leaves, fox and Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie were my inspiration for my card.

I used the Foxy Friends and Falling for Leaves stamp sets for creating my card.  The coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies and Fox Builder punch makes it so easy to die cut the leaves and fox.

The Very Vanilla card base was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder..  The leaves were die cut and embellished with retired burlap ribbon.  I also used gold foil for some of the accent leaves and the trim underneath the ribbon which was die cut from the Detailed Leaves Thinleis Dies.

Painted Harvest Sunflowers

Fall is a great time of year !  The weather is cooler and the colors are warm.  This time of year and the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create a card with the Painted Harvest stamp set.

I stamped the sunflowers and foliage at the corner on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.  I also stamped the leaves around the sunflowers and die cut with the Leaf punch. The sentiment is also from the stamp set and the banner end is die cut with the Banner Triple punch.  The DSP layer is from the Painted Autumn Design retired collection.

For added sparkle I used Clear Wink of Stella on the sunflowers, basic rhinestones on the background and gold metallic thread behind the sunflowers.

Falling for Leaves

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.   I love the beautiful colors of green turning into gold, orange and red.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The images inspired me to use the Falling for Leaves bundle to create this card.

I stamped the Crumb Cake layer with the green foliage leaf then added the Very Vanilla layer which I stamped with the Artisan Textures using Versamark then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.  I die cut the leaves then added sparkle with clear Wink of Stella and basic rhinestones. The ‘Thankful’ greeting was also embossed with Copper then die cut with the Pretty Label punch then embellished with 1/4″ copper trim.

Have a Magical Birthday

LOVE the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This is one of the new stamp sets in the annual catalog.  I CASED my card from the catalog and used the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy to create my card.

I sponged Night of Navy on Very Vanilla to create the water then stamped foliage from the Magical Mermaid and Sea of Textures stamp set.  The mermaid is stamped with Momento Black then colored with watercolor pencils.  The coral and starfish are die cut from the Under the Sea Framelits.  I used Clear Wink of Stella on the mermaid and the water to give it a magical shimmery quality.  The greeting I die cut using retired Decorative Label punch. The sand is embellished with pearls and retired Tutti Frutti adhesive sequins.

Still Night Owl Sending Warm Wishes

I love owls so I was super excited to see the Still Night bundle in the new Stampin’ Up  holiday catalog.  The bundle includes a stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies.  The card I created is also for the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

With this bundle you can create Halloween or Christmas cards.  For my card I created a Christmas card.  I used the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder for the background.  I die cut the owl and branch with Whisper White and Early Espresso.  I used the Early Espresso die cut to create a shadow behind the white.  The leaves were die cut from Garden Green card stock.  The sentiment was stamped with Garden Green ink then die cut with the oval from the set.  To add to the snow background I colored the background with Clear Wink of Stella.  I included a close up photo with different light so you could see the Clear Wink of Stella.
