Making Christmas Bright

This is a fun card my friend Patty Bennett  brought along for us to make a couple of weeks ago. I love it and decided my Holiday Card Class will also make it. It features the Making Christmas Bright stamp set & the Christmas Bulb Punch. You can get the bundle and save 10%. All the measurements will be at the end.

I have a couple of tips: After you stamp the cord & bulbs, lay the bulbs on the cord and stamp the Daffodil Delight highlights (I don’t know what to call them…..). Then add a Dimensional to each one and place on the “cord”. The sentiment die is from the Farmhouse Framelits (page 13 of the Holiday Catalog), and the heart is from the Sweetly Stitched Framelits, (page 25 of the Holiday Catalog).  The bow comes from the Candy Cane Season Bundle, stamp set and punch.

We also used Patty’s custom made stamp pad for the sentiment. Its called the Uninked Spectrum Pad (page 202 of the Annual Catalog). You add the colors you want with Re-inkers.

This is the inside of the card. Add a piece of Whisper White, and a piece of Designer Paper. This is the Blueberry Bushel Designer Series Paper.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Lovely Lipstick cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″, cut 1 1/2″ off one side

4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock (card front)

4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock (inside of card)

2″ x 4″ In Color Designer Series Paper

Scraps of Whisper White, and Lovely Lipstick

Supply List: I forgot to add the Candy Cane Season bundle for the bow, #149927, page 20 of the Holiday Catalog.

Tags Christmas Card, Say What?

I started off casing (copy and share everything) the Holiday Catalog, as I was trying to figure out how to use the Tags & Tidings Bundle (page 24 ) for something other than a tag.  I love the card that Stampin’ Up! did, but didn’t have the wood elements and wanted to change it up a bit. So I started off with a Cherry Cobbler base and embossed it with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder, (page 5).

The thing about this stamp and die set is you can stamp all the tags at once and die cut them all at once. Think of all the tags you could make with one pass of the Big Shot, (17 tags). Ok, back to my card….Then I put a 1′ strip of the Dashing Along Dsp in the center of the card. You can get this Dsp FREE with a qualifying order, (details are below).  Then I die cut the Christmas in Gold Shimmer paper with Multipurpose Adhesive sheet on the back, using the Merry Christmas Thinlits (page 5), and stamped the MERRY with Garden Green and fussy cut, its attached with Mini Dimensionals. To adhere that panel to the card base I used Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Whenever I attach anything to an a piece of Embossed  cardstock I like to use the Liquid Glue so it adheres in all the nooks and crannies.

And that’s it! This is one of the cards we will make in my Holiday Card Class this Thursday. You will make 2 of each of the 3 designs, with envelopes, (If you don’t want to make the Halloween card, let me know, you can make more of one of the other cards). Cost is $15 or FREE with a $50 order. RSVP: 9-23-18.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Garden Green Cardstock

1″ x 5 1/4″ Dashing Along Designer Series Paper

1 1/2″ x 5″ Gold Shimmer Paper (that has Multipurpose Adhesive on the back)

Small scrap of Whisper White (for sentiment)

Happy Halloween Buffalo Check Card

So I made this card BEFORE I had any of the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper. Buffalo Check background stamp to the rescue. I inked up the stamp with Gorgeous Grape after I put it on my Stamparatus, which I’m glad I did, because I needed to add more ink and stamp again. Love the Stamparatus. Coming November 1st, some Stamparatus Accessories. Stay tuned!

Ok, back to my card. I layered the Buffalo Check onto a Gorgeous Grape card base. I used the Cat Punch to punch out the cat in Black, I spritzed it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. You can’t see it in the photo, but the kitty is really sparkly. I mounted the cat with Dimensionals onto the largest Stitched Shape Die Cut that I also sponged with Gorgeous Grape. I punched out the moon and stars with the Twinkle Builder Punch and added them to the Stitched Circle too.

Before I added the Stitched Circle with Dimensionals I die cut the Spider Web (from the Cauldron Framelits on page 49) twice with Black Foil, (page 49 of the Holiday Catalog). Both were added with Tombow Multipurpose Glue. A little glue goes a LONG way. Then layered the Circle over the Spider Web. The Bat was punched in Black Foil, with the Spooky Bats Punch. The sentiment is from the Spooky Sweets stamp set. You can get the Spooky Sweets stamp set & Spooky Bats Punch in a Bundle and save 10%. I used the Christmas Tags Thinlits (page 24 of the Holiday Catalog) to cut the tag. Since it had a hole in the die, I added a bit of the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

The Gals in my Holiday Card Class will be making this card next Thursday, 6:30-9pm. You will make 2 each of the 3 designs with envelopes. Cost: $15 or FREE with a $50 order. RSVP: 9-25-18.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Gorgeous Grape Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White (for the Buffalo Check)

Scraps of Whisper White for the Circle and Tag
