Thursday Challenge, Jolly Christmas Card

Create with Connie and Mary #CCMC383. This was a simple challenge and I thought I would use unusual Christmas colors. And you can play along too, click HERE!


My card base is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored in half with the Heavy Whisper White cardstock. Then I added a 4" x 4" piece of Blackberry Bliss embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I used the White Corrugated Paper and die cut the medium tree from Peaceful Pines stamp set and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. At first I only did the edges, then thought, why not the whole tree? I added the tree with dimensionals.
I cut the Jolly from the Christmas Saying Framelits twice, once with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and then again with white Fun Foam. It makes the "jolly" stand out, using the fun foam. You also don't need as many layers. I glued the two together using the Fine-tip Glue Pen, then used tiny pieces of dimensionals on the right side and the glue pen on the left side to adhere to my card. I didn't do any stamping on this card. Which is so weird, but we have such great dies, we don't always have to stamp on our cards.

Here is the sketch. I think I nailed it!



Hope you all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thankful!

That's what I am today! Thankful for all the friendships, family, Stampin' Up! and to be able to do what I LOVE to do, which is create.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! And safe travels for those not staying at home.


This is a card we did in my Card Class this month. We took the negative part of the leaf I die cut from the Leaflets, and colored with sponge daubers with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crushed Curry. You will notice that I kept a really light space in the center. So it looks like the light is coming in. What is so fun about doing this technique is everyone's come out different. The Thankful stamp is part of the Six Sayings Hosting set in the Holiday Catalog. I'm sad this set is retiring soon. But you can still get it (with a $150 order, get your friends together and lets do a catalog party, earn some FREE stuff).


I finished it off with a Linen Thread bow. I like to double my thread and used a glue dot to attach to my leaf. Then added a few Gold Sequins with my Fine-tip Glue Pen. Easy peasy!

Tuesday Stampin' Up! Only Challenge

I love when I can get a 2 for 1. Not only is this my card for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, (you can play along too, click HERE!) it was also a card we did this month in my Holiday Card Class. The Challenge this week was to use your favorite Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. colors. I love Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake together for Christmas cards.

I used the Holly Jolly Greetings and Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies Bundle. Is that a mouth full or what? We also used the Merry Moments Paper Stack. This was a quick card, one that you could do multiple of, in a short amount of time. 
I think the Snowflake Elements with the Iced Rhinestone just makes the card, and I was itching to use some of the Venetian Crochet Trim and this was the perfect card.

To make this card, stamp the snowflakes in Crumb Cake, BEFORE you adhere your
3" x 4 1/4" of Designer Series Paper to the Thick Whisper White card base (love this thick paper). Stamp the "Have a and Christmas" in Crumb Cake too. I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the merry. Works like a charm! Add your Designer Paper and Crochet Trim, then the wooden snowflake and the Iced Rhinestones. Call it done!

Here are the products I used to make my card:

Scalloped Tag Candy Holder

I took these little Candy Holders to the Stampin' Up! OnStage Event this past week-end. They each hold one little box of Junior Mints perfectly.  It was so nice to see all my Stampin' Friends on Saturday!
These treats are super easy to make. This is what you will need:

2" x 11" cardstock, scored at 5" and 6", punch with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
2" x 6 1/2" Designer Series Paper, scored at 2", 3" 5" and 6". I used Season of Cheer Designer Series paper. You can decorate with any stamps or accessories. I used a few different stamp sets.

For the one on the left I used, Peaceful Pines Bundle (stamp set and matching Framelits). The one on the right I used, the Festive Flower Builder Punch.
For both of these I used the Peaceful Pines Bundle.
These two I used the Snow Place Bundle (stamp set and Framelits). These Framelits come with 15 dies and cut out all the little pieces. Thank you Stampin' Up! no fussy cutting here.
A really quick tutorial for you:

Top view. You can just barely add your box of Junior Mints after you tie the ribbon. Yes I decorated all of the treat holders and then added my candy.....easier if you add the candy BEFORE you tie up the top.......
Thank you to Erica Cerwin for this great idea!
