Whimsey & Wonder

Hello! These are the last two Christmas cards I will be featuring this year. I have many more, but ran out of time to get them posted! These two cards feature the Whimsey & Wonder Suite and these are the ones I sent out to my customers. As soon as I laid eyes on this suite in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, it called out my name! I just loved the non-traditional, but beautiful colors in the Designer Series Paper. This suite was very popular, but will not be returning next year. The only product still available on the retired list is the Whimsical Trees stamp set, so if you have been thinking about purchasing it, now is the time!

Here is how I made the Christmas ornament card. This layout was featured in a recent YouTube video by Lisa Curcio.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of the Christmas ornament paper from the Whimsey & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper at 3 3/4″ x 5″ and adhere to Basic White cardstock.
  • Cut two strips at 1″ x 3 1/2″ and one strip at 1″ x 4 1/2″ from two different contrasting pieces of DSP. Adhere as shown.
  • Cut a piece of Polished Pink cardstock at 2 3/4″ square and a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2 5/” square and adhere pieces together.
  • Cut a 2 1/2″ square of Basic White and stamp the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink two times, with one of the images a bit higher up to the top of the piece. Color with Stampin’ Blends. I used dark and light Smokey Slate, Dark Mint Macaron, Light Polished Pink and Light Misty Moonlight. Adhere to the Mint Macaron square.
  • Cut a scrap piece of Basic White at 1/2″ x 3″. Stamp greeting with Mint Macaron ink. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here is how I made the card with the tree.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of the paper with the holly leaves from the Whimsey & Wonder DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of the Blushing Bride and silver snowflake paper at 3″ x 4″.
  • Cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock at 2 5/8″ x 4 1/4″. I embossed this piece with the retired Winter Snow embossing folder. You can substitute the Wintry 3D folder in the current annual catalog.
  • Adhere the DSP to the card front at an angle and adhere the embossed piece over the DSP straight up and down.
  • Adhere a Wonderful Snowflake to the left side of the embossed piece .
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″. Stamp the large tree image with Mossy Meadow ink and cut out with the coordinating die from the Christmas Tree dies.
  • Cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2″ x 3 3/4″ and cut out with the die from the Christmas Trees dies. Adhere to stamped tree. Adhere tree to right side of embossed piece, partially overlapping the snowflake.
  • Stamp greeting with Mossy Meadow ink on scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and cut out with the label die that has the flagged ends from the Tasteful Labels die set. Adhere to card front.

Wishing you a Blessed Christmas!

Holly Jolly Christmas Season

Hello! Today I have another card made with products from the Painted Christmas Suite. I also used the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder, which is my favorite holiday embossing folder from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Real Red cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of the Garden Green and white Painted Christmas Designer Series at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of DSP at 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ from the print with the small berries and pine leaves and run through die cutting machine with the largest label from the Seasonal Labels Dies. Adhere to the Merry Melody embossed piece.
  • Run a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock through the die cutting machine with the berries die from the Poinsettia dies.
  • For the Garden Green leaves, emboss a piece of the cardstock with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and then die cut two leaves from the Seasonal Labels dies. I found this idea somewhere online but don’t remember where. It adds some nice additional texture to the card.
  • For the greeting, die cut a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock with a label from the Seasonal Labels dies. Stamp greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set onto the label with Real Red ink.
  • Cut a length of Real Red Sheer Ribbon.
  • To finish assembling the card front, adhere one leave to the upper left of the DSP label with a few glue dots. Adhere the other leave to the opposite side, staggering the height so that it appears shorter than the first leaf. Adhere the red berries in between the leaves with a few small dots of liquid glue.
  • Make a loop with the ribbon. Lay the ribbon down at an angle and adhere in the center of the ribbon with a small piece of Scotch Tape. Make a loop, bringing the ribbon back to the opposite side, once again adhering it in the center with another piece of tape. Bring the ribbon back to the opposite side and tape again. Trim ends of ribbon.
  • Adhere greeting over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Christmas Season – Two Different Versions

Hello! I’ve been making many holiday cards in the last few weeks but got so busy with my holiday cardmaking classes that I haven’t have time to do any blog posts recently, so I will be posting some of those cards during this week. Today I have two cards with the same easy layout. Both cards use products from the Painted Christmas Suite. One uses the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper and the other uses the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Here is how I made this card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut three different strips of paper from the Painted Christmas DSP at 1 5/8″ x 3 3/4″ and adhere to the cardstock.
  • Stamp two of the smaller pine cones from the Christmas Season stamp set. This is a two step stamp, so first stamp the base with Crumb Cake ink, stamping off before stamping onto the cardstock. Stamp the accent stamp over the base with Early Espresso ink. Stamp the leaf with Pear Pizzaz ink. Run through die cutting machine using the coordinating dies from the Seasonal Labels die set.
  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 1 1/2″ x 5″ and run through die cutting machine with label die from Seasonal Labels. Stamp greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set on label with Cherry Cobbler ink.
  • Arrange pine cones and leaves on left side of card. Adhere one pine cone and the leaves under the label. Adhere label. Adhere the other pine cone over the left edge of the label.
  • Add a Mint Macaron Genial Gem to the label for a bit of bling.

Here is how I made the second card using the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP.

  • Cutting dimensions for this card base and DSP are the same as the first card. Card base is Smoky Slate cardstock, mat for DSP is Cherry Cobbler.
  • The two pieces of DSP I used both have tree images. I used two strips of the paper with the white background on either side of the mat and for the middle piece I used the paper with the large trees with the silver metallic in the background. I cut those strips so that they showed the tops of the trees.
  • Cut strip of Basic White cardstock at 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Die cut with the label die from the Harvest Dies set. You can also use the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, selecting the squared end. Stamp greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink.
  • Die cut two sets of the holly leaves from the Seasonal Labels Dies using one of the sheets from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack. Arrange leaves on card base. Adhere greeting with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add clear rhinestones on each end of the label.

This layout is super easy and versatile, and is a great way to use your Designer Series Papers!

Merry Melody Christmas Card

Hello! Today’s card features the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder and the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. I went through the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog many times before I actually noticed the Merry Melody folder on page 42. It is easy to miss because the photographs don’t show off this beautiful folder very effectively! The Poinsettia Petals stamp set and dies were one of my most favorite bundles from last year’s holiday Mini Catalog so I was glad that they carried over into this year’s Annual Catalog!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – Cut a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to card base.
  • To make the labels for the greeting, cut a scrap piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock at 1″ x 4″. Punch both ends with the squared edge on the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Cut a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock at 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and punch both ends. Stamp greeting from the Poinsietta Petals stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink and adhere to Shaded Spruce label. Adhere to card front.
  • Stamp the small and medium poinsietta images with Real Red ink on scrap pieces of Basic White cardstock and run through the die cutting machine with the coordinating poinsettia dies. Adhere a glue dot to the center of the larger image and adhere the two pieces together.
  • Stamp three pine boughs with Shaded Spruce ink on scrap pieces of Basic White cardstock and run through the die cutting machine with the coordinating die.
  • Run two scrap pieces of Real Red cardstock through the die cutting machine with the berry die.
  • Arrange the pine boughs at bottom right corner of card front. Adhere the berry pieces to back of poinsietta piece with glue dots. Adhere this piece to card front, overlapping the pine boughs.
  • Add a pearl to the center of the poinsettia.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the magic and wonder greeting with Real Red ink. Stamp a pine bough with Shaded Spruce ink in bottom left corner. Adhere to inside of card base.

Snowflake Wishes

Hello! Today I’m sharing another card I made that uses products from the Snowflake Splendor suite in the holiday catalog. I CASED this card from Kylie Bertucci because it is a unique layout and a great way to showcase our beautiful Designer Series Papers. The Snowflake Splendor DSP uses many of the blues in our color families. I selected Seaside Spray for the card base although this is not one of the colors in the DSP, but blends beautifully with the colors in the paper and gives the card a soft look.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder
  • Cut two pieces of Snowflake Splendor DSP at 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Use the largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels dies and cut out the two labels. Cut a contrasting piece of DSP at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ and cut with the 2 1/4″ x 4″ Stitched Nested Label die, which is the third largest in the set.
  • On the two larger labels trim one end on each so that each piece measures 3 7/8″ . Save one of the ends. On the smaller label trim one end so that it measures 2 3/4″.
  • Adhere the two large labels with the trimmed ends flush against the left edge of the card, butting the pieces up against one another. Adhere the smaller label over the large labels, centering it with the point in the seam between the larger labels. Using the end of the label piece that you saved, adhere it to the card base, centering in the V-shape where the two labels meet and flush against the right side of the card.
  • Next, create the snowflake embellishment. Die cut a snowflake from a scrap piece of Silver Foil. Select one of the larger snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes dies. Stamp a smaller snowflake image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Die cut with coordinating die. Die cut another snowflake with scrap piece of Seaside Spray cardstock, selecting one of the smaller dies in the set.
  • Adhere the three snowflakes together with glue dots placed in the centers of the two smaller snowflakes. Adhere entire snowflake piece to the smaller label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere a blue gem to center of snowflake.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/2″. Stamp greeting of your choice from the stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink. Stamp the little snowflake cluster image with Seaside Spray ink in lower left corner. Adhere to inside of card.
