Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Christmas in July

Stampin’ Dreams is blog hopping with Christmas in July.

Do you start your Christmas card crafty early? I love making my Christmas cards early so when the holidays come around, I am finished, and I can enjoy all the fun and celebrations.

The new 2022 July to January Mini catalog has a BUNCH of fabulous Christmas stamp sets. I chose to feature Trees for Sale stamp and the Tree Lot dies. The Tree Lot dies are free with a $50.00 (US) purchase during Sale-a-bration. Free is always good.

Trees for Sale

I paired the stamps set with Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. This paper may look familiar because it is returning from last year’s catalog. It is so pretty, I’m glad they brought it back.

The white snow on the tress is die cut from white glimmer paper. It is so sparkly. Little touches like this shiny paper make your cards pop. Of course, the sky is coated with Wink of Stella.

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you hop on to the next blogger for even more Christmas inspiration.

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! Eden’s Garden Card & Tutorial

Eden’s Garden is an early release from the new mini catalog that will be available in January. I fell in love with the DSP the minute I saw it. It is so soft, shiny, and elegant. You can order it now, without having to wait until January!

A few weeks ago, a group of demonstrator friends go together and presented a showcase of videos using this collection. 

I shared a trifold card that focused on the stunning Designer Series Paper. I love the way it turned out.

I also used the wreath idea from the Stampin’ Up concept artists. Don’t you just love the gold glitter frame?

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Card

Poinsettia Petals and the soft white Velvet paper worked magic to make this beautiful Christmas card. I love non-traditional colors for Christmas, especially pink.

Poinsettia Petals Ginny Harrell Stampin' Up!

I created the pink poinsettia by die cutting all the velvet pieces and then used a blending brush to add Blushing Bride and Polished Pink ink. 

 All the DSP and card stock are simply layered to a card base and the poinsettia added last. The In Color Gems really pop. I love it! This may look involved, but I thought it was fairly easy. I hope you will try it.
