Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season (Sneak Peek) and Beauty of Friendship Masculine Thank You Card

I used a little old and a little new for this card. The Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set sentiments, and the Wintery 3D Embossing Folders are from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog whereas the Christmas Season Stamp Set and the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots embellishment are from the upcoming August 3, 2021-Jan 3, 2022 Mini Catalog. I love the coordination and quality of Stampin’ Up!, as well as the versatility of the products to be used for multiple occasions. Enjoy!

The design for this card was inspired by The Paper Player Challenge: PP551 – A Sketch Challenge from Ann.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 1 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ and 1 7/8″ x 7/16″ (for stamping)
  • Soft Seafoam Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 1″
  • Old Olive & Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3 1/16″ x 1″ (1 of each color)
  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 2″ x 5″
  • Early Expresso Cardstock: 2 1/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside)

The Creating

I stamped the smaller pinecone from Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set four times on the Basic White panel. This is a Two Step image…I stamped the detail stamp first in Early Expresso Ink and followed up with the larger fill stamp in Soft Suede Ink. Next I added the double leafed fir stamp randomly between the cones with Mossy Meadow Ink and followed with the pine sprig image in First- and Second-Generation Old Olive Ink. To complete the stamping I added the sentiments with Early Expresso Ink and added the leaves inside with First- and Second-Generation Old Olive Ink.

Next I ran the small strips of green cardstocks through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the pine sprig Wintery 3D Embossing Folder. I did the same with the flap of the Basic White Medium Envelope.

To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers and the inside strip to the card base. I added three Bronze Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to embellish the card front.

    Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle Birthday Card – Sneak Peek

    I used three products from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection to make this masculine, wintery birthday card. The suite is featured in the upcoming August-December 2021 Mini Catalog. The bundle includes the Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper coordinates with Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Evening Evergreen, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Succulent…and as you can see here, Balmy Blue (not listed, but it’s perfect!). I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything. Enjoy…

    The Paper Cuts

    • Painted Christmas 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 3/8″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope).
    • Balmy Blue Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 4″ x 3 1/4″ (largest die in Seasonal Labels Dies).
    • Basic White Cardstock: 51/4″ x 4″ (inside panel), and 7″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting).

    The Creating

    I used Pear Pizzazz Ink and Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the greenery images (3 medium leafy, 3 pine, 2 long leafed, and 2 small leafy) on Basic White Cardstock. I die cut them with the coordinating dies with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I also stamped the birthday sentiment from Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen and die cut with the smaller label die.

    I continued the stamped greenery theme to the envelope front and stamped the sentiment on the inside panel. I added the Painted Christmas 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap (trimming with my Paper Snips) and the bottom edge of the inside panel. I adhered all the layering with Multipurpose Liquid Glue except the sentiment label which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card front is embellished with three Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Jewels placed with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.
