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.

Christmas Pines are Pretty Pines

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.  I used the new stamp set Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlits dies bundle along with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder.  I love the pine bough thinlets.  There are three different sizes which create such pretty foliage.  I also used the bow dies to create the Real Red and Bermuda Bay bows.  The Pine Bough textured embossing folder created a beautiful background on the Natural Ivory card stock.  After stamping the sentiment I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch to die cut it.   I love this bundle.  There are so many possibilities!

My Digital Studio Christmas Card

Lately I’ve been creating on My Digital Studio and for this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments I have created this Christmas Card.

Creating photo boxes and sizing them to your liking then filling with your choice of paper is how I created the glimmer strips and the strip of Season of Style DSP at the top of the card.  If you have MDS and haven’t used it in awhile, I invite you to create a card or scrap page using it.  If you don’t have MDS and would like to try before you buy click here for a FREE trial.

Monochromatic Rocking Gingerbread Christmas Card

This week we have a monochromatic challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card was also inspired by the cute gingerbread in the Scentsational Season Bundle.  He’s so cute!  My card is also a rocking card which is so much fun to decorate.  Click here for a tutorial on how to make this card.

I cut a Soft Suede 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Very Vanilla  circle with my retired Stampin’ Up! Circle Scissor Plus.  I embossed the Very Vanilla circle with the Perfect Polka Dot folder then folded them in half and glued them together.

Rocking Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Fancy Fold Cards.   With only few more days left till Christmas I decided to make another Christmas card but with a rocking twist.  I had seen this type of card out in internet land and decided to make a rocking Christmas card.  You can view a tutorial for making this card here.  They’re so easy to create!  I cut an Early Espresso 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Soft Suede circle with my Circle Scissor Plus then folded them in half and glued them together.

The Scallop Circle Cherry Cobbler layer is embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 dies to cut the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and the Lucky Limeade Scallop Circle.  The Gift image is stamped on watercolor paper with brown StayzOn and colored with ink pads and a blender pen.  I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out this layer at 2-3/4″ .  To add some more sparkle I framed it with Champagne Glass glitter.  I added an Old Olive button and stamped ‘Merry Christmas’ in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.

For the back of the card I stamped the bird and ornament image on water color paper then punched with the ornament punch.  I also used ink pads and a blender pen to color.  I stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them in gold along with the sentiment.

Merry and Type Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge.  Create any project with the colors of  Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red.  Since I’ve been  in the groove making Christmas cards with the Merry and Type stamp set and coordinating DSP I created a Christmas card with these non-traditional colors.

Do you recognize the Whisper White square shape?  It’s the Top Note Die.  I die cut the shape as you would normally then I turned the cut Top Note 90 degrees and centered it then ran it through the Big Shot again.  Very easy!

The ornament image is  stamped with Versamark and Real Red then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing powder.  To color the ornaments I used a blender pen and ink pads.

To add some additional sparkle I embellished with light pink rhinestones.  I used a light colored pink  Sharpie to color them.

The sentiment is stamped with Pool Party and Versamark.  I then heat embossed it with Iridescent Embossing Powder to add some sparkle.  I used the the Decorative Label to punch it out then layered it over Real Red satin ribbon.

I hope you’re inspired to create a project with these colors.  Hop on over to HSS to be inspired by our talented design team.
