Hello! Happy Chanukah to my Jewish customers, friends and family! I’m playing catch-up with my blog posts so I’m posting this later then I had planned, but there are still a few days left before the holiday ends on Thursday evening!
This is one of the rare times that I am posting a project that doesn’t use a stamp set from Stampin’ Up! We haven’t had a new Chanukah stamp set in many years and I’ve used all of my old sets so many times that I needed a “pick me up!” so purchased this set, Love and Light, from Altenew. It comes with a coordinating die, but I didn’t use it for this card. Everything else on this card is from Stampin’ Up!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut a piece of Night of Navy 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 Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Run through your embossing & die cutting machine with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Adhere to card base.
Cut piece of Seaside Spray cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 5″. Use the second largest of the wider dies in the Ornate Layers die set and run through your embossing & die cutting machine.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2 3/4″ x 3 5/8″. Stamp image with Memento Black Ink. Color image with Stampin’ Blends. I used dark and light Gray Granite and light Smoky Slate for the menorah, light Seaside Spray for the candles, dark Daffodil Delight for the flames, light Misty Moonlight and dark Seaside Spray for the rose and dark and light Old Olive for the leaves. Adhere to ornate frame and adhere frame to card front.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting with Misty Moonlight ink. Adhere to inside of card.
Give this idea a try by changing up the stamped image!

Today I’m sharing another card I made with products from the Ornate Garden suite. I cased a card by Anne Marie Hile that was part of an Ornate Garden Suite Mega Tutorial.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score and fold in half.
Cut piece of Old Olive cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base.
Cut piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 3 3/4″ x 5″ and run through embossing machine with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Cut piece of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and tie in bow around this piece. Adhere to Old Olive mat.
Cut piece of paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Papers at 3″ x 4″.
Cut scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock at 1 1/8″ x 2 1/2″. Stamp thanks greeting from the Ornate Thanks stamp set with Early Espresso ink. Stamp “ever so much” or other greeting of your choice from this set with Petal Pink ink.
Cut piece of Gold Foil paper at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and cut with the third smallest of the wider labels from the Ornate Layers die set. I punched two sets of Old Olive leaves with the Leaf Punch, which is now retired, so you can substitute it with any of the leaves that are included in die sets in your collection.
Adhere leaves in upper right corner of the foil piece. Adhere greeting piece to foil piece. Adhere the decorated foil piece to the DSP.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp filigree image with Early Espresso ink in each of the four corners and adhere piece to inside of card.

Hello! Today’s card features the Ornate Garden Suite. This suite includes two bundles: Ornate Thanks is a photopolymer stamp set with greetings that can be mixed and matched and coordinates with the Ornate Borders die set; Ornate Style stamp set is red rubber and has floral images that can be colored and coordinates with the Ornate Layers dies. For this card I chose to showcase the daisy image.
