Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Made Easy

You can make four beautiful cards in minutes, and I can’t wait to show you how.

It is no secret that I love simple stamping. Stamping is what I fell in love with and while I enjoy using dies and Designer Series Paper, I always feel like I have returned home when I am stamping. Paper and ink and pretty images!

I saw a card on Pinterest by Akiko Sudano that sparked my interest. I decided to step it up by making 4 at one time.

Here is my card:

Christmas Season

 

Here is how I stamped all 4 at the same time. In a jiffy.

I stated with an 11” x 8 ½” piece of Basic White. I lightly penciled lines at 4 ¼” and 5 ½”. I also penciled off angles as shown. This was to remind me to save space for my sentiment.

Then I started building my design. I kept adding layers and images until I was happy with the way it looked.

Next, I put the paper in my trimmer and cut it at 5 ½” and 4 ¼”. Now it was time to trim the 4 cards to 5 ¼” x 4” and stamp the sentiment. You can also go back and add any foliage or leaves that need touching up. I brushed Wink of Stella on the red berries for sparkle.

Mount the card front on Real Red cardstock and adhere to the card. Stamp the inside. All four cards done in less than 20 minutes.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Cards & Tutorial

Paper piercing is a technique I love but forget about using on my cards.

I knew the cute coat and skirt on the lady from Delivering Cheer would look adorable with paper piecing.

Delivering Cheer

My first card is for Thanksgiving or as a Thank you card. I used a damask pattern piece of DSP from the Pattern Party Host pack of DSP. A touch of color on her mittens, scarf and flowers finished the look. The background and side panels are Beauty of the Earth DSP. I would love for her to ring my doorbell and bring me flowers!

The second card is more fun, flirty, and fanciful. The buffalo check is from the same Pattern Party Pack. The side panel is from Heartwarming Hugs DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees

Today I am sharing a whimsical & fanciful pink Christmas card. This scrappy, shabby card is so easy to create and uses your scraps to make a fun card.

Whimsical Trees

The best way to start this type of card is to cut your strips, distress one edge using your scissors or an old emery board. Adhere the strips in random order to a piece of 5 ½” x 4 ¼” cardstock. I used Tombow glue to make sure they were snug. Once all the pieces are adhered and dried you can trim it down to 5 ¼” x 4”. I then adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card base.

Did you notice the glittery strips? They are Be Dazzling paper (from Sale-a-bration) dyed with Polished Pink reinker mixed with rubbing alcohol.

A vellum circle and Shimmer Vellum trees create the focal image. The glitter tree is also Be Dazzling paper. I dipped the ends of the twine bow in reinker, so cute. Rhinestones are scattered across the card front for extra glitter.

I shared this card and a few others on a Facebook live. You can watch it HERE on my YouYube channel.
