Stampin’ Up! Great Tidings Christmas Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Great Tidings Bundles from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog for this card. The bundle includes the Great Tidings Cling Stamp Set + Wise Men Tidings Dies. The detail of these stamps begs for wet embossing! If you like to color, you can get quite detailed as the sample on page 15 of the Mini Catalog or you can keep it simple like here. I hope you enjoy the card!

The Paper Cuts

  • Night of Navy Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
  • Gold Foil Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel)
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (front layer), 1 3/4″ x 3″ (die cutting) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (sand) and a Bethlehem die cut
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 2 star die cuts

The Creating

I stamped the “Wise men still seek Him” sentiment in Night of Navy Ink in the top right corner of the Very Vanilla front layer. I used Versa Mark Ink to stamp two wise men in line on the right side and centered vertically, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping away excess) and melted the powder with the Heat Tool. I stamped the remaining wise man on Very Vanilla Cardstock and repeated the embossing process. I colored the wise men using Misty Moonlight Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends, Olive Green Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends, Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. I ran the separate king through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the coordinating die. I also passed the Crumb Cake Cardstock strip through with the “snow” die from Cabin Dies in the center to cut it in half.

I used a Blending Brush to apply Night of Navy Ink around the edges of the stamped panel making it darker on the outside and lighter around the images. I also stamped the sentiment and gifts images on the inside panel and on the envelope front. I used a ruler and the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to draw a base for the gifts. I added the star on the envelope with Crushed Curry Ink.

To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the cardstock panels on the card front and inside. I applied the back layer of the “sand” and the die cuts on the inside with liquid glue. I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the front star, the top layer of “sand” and the die cut wise man (tucked slightly between the sand layers). I lightly blended a little bit of Night of Navy Ink onto the sand to bring the “night” down. I also added a little Wink of Stella to the gifts in the wise men hands and on the envelope and inside panel.

    Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Suite Christmas Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Suite of products from the newly released July – December 2021 Mini Catalog for this card. It includes the Christmas Season Bundle (Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Labels Dies) and Christmas to Remember Bundle (Christmas to Remember Cling Stamp Set + Christmas Pinecone Dies), Gold Holly Leaves, Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and the Painted Christmas 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper. That’s A LOT of beautiful! I hope you enjoy the card.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 2″ (die cut label – 2nd largest nested)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 4″ (stamping/die cutting) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)
    • Painted Christmas 12″x12″ DSP: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the sentiment on the Evening Evergreen die cut label with VersaMark Ink, sprinkling on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melting it with the Heat Tool. On Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the two holly leaves image in Evening Evergreen Ink, Garden Green Ink, and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I also stamped a holly berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

    On the Basic White inside panel and the envelope front, I stamped the holly leaves and sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

    To assemble, I placed a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the tips of the holly leaves and added them to the top of the label die cut. I added the berries with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals…they fit perfectly! I cut three 2″ pieces of the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and attached them to the back of the label with a strip of Stampin’ Seal Adhesive (placed on the label).

    I used liquid glue to adhere the DSP panel to the card front and the inside layer and DSP strip to the inside. popped the label on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked three of the Gold Holly Leaves in with Mini Glue Dots. I attached the remaining DSP panel with liquid glue to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Thank You Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Bundle from the newly released July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. This bundle is part of the Peaceful Place Suite Collection which is awesome! In addition to the bundle (Peaceful Cabins Stamp Set and Cabin Dies) and the gorgeous Peaceful Place 12″x12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper I used for this card, it includes snow flocked velvet sheets, shimmer sequins in shades of white and silver, glittered organdy ribbon and a wood-grained embossing folder. See the links below for the details. It offers versatility for thank you and thinking of you cards as well as Christmas cards! Enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic Gray Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 2 1/2″ (cabin & die cut, 1 1/2″ x 1 3/4″ (fox & die cut) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)
    • Peaceful Place 12″x12″ Specialty DSP: 1/4 of the sheet with the trees & mountains that is made to quarter trimmed down to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
    • Silver Foil Sheets: 2″ x 2 1/2″ (die cutting trees & stars)

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the DSP panel to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This became my guide to line up the Basic White panels for general placement of the stamps. Since the images have a lot of detail, I used the Stamparatus for my stamping to allow me to stamp the image a second time if needed to. I stamped the cabin on the left of the larger Basic White panel and the fox on the left of the smaller Basic White piece with Basic Gray Ink. I added the sentiment below the cabin with Tuxedo Black Ink.

    While stamping I added the 3 trees image with Basic Gray Ink on the inside panel and the envelope front. I stamped the inside sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink.

    I die cut the stamped cabin and fox as well as the three skinny trees and 7 snowflakes from the Silver Foil using the coordinating Cabin Dies. I adhered the fox layer with liquid glue then added the cabin layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the edges of the snow die cuts, the rooftop and the stamped trees on the inside panel and envelope (just roughly squiggled onto the trees). I added the Silver Foil trees and stars with liquid glue. I supported the top of the one on the top left panel with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

    Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Notecard

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set and coordinating In the Tropics Dies to make this beach themed notecard.

    My card design was inspired by Color Throwdown Countdown #652.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pacific Point Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) & 4 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
    • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 1/4″
    • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
    • Pattern Party 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – Granny Apple Green Pattern: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (stamping/die cutting) & 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)
    • Mango Melody Cardstock: sun die cut from Sheep Dies in the 3 Aug-30 Sept Sale-a-bration Brochure (free with $50 order)

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting the top edge of the Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake Cardstock strips with the snow die from Cabin Dies from the upcoming 3 Aug to 3 Jan 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s the die that has the fox on the edge…be sure he is facing off the cardstock…he’s cute, but he’d be funny on the beach ;). I stamped the sentiment on the Crumb Cake layer in Tuxedo Black Ink and then glued the pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge. When the glue was dry I ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.

    I stamped the palm trees image in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and the Basic White inside panel and scrap. I colored the fronds with Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and the trunks with Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. I die cut the one on the scrap along with the cloud stamp from Sheep Dies.

    All that is left is the assembly…the DSP, layered rectangle, sun, cloud and inside panel are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The die cut palm trees are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (the trunks with halves). I added a double bow from Linen Thread with a Mini Glue Dot.
