Another Carols of Christmas Card

Carols of Christmas stamp setToday I am sharing another card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas stamp set.  This set will be in the upcoming Stampin ‘ Up! Holiday Catalog but is available to order early – this month!

I love this set!!  It is so versatile and has a large variety of framelits to cut out a lot of Holiday images!









So the details on this card.  The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock  scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half to make the card base.  The next layer is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Cucumber Crush cardstock.  Then a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The corner framelits with the poinsettias is used on the 4 corners. 

Next Stamp 4 Poinsettias with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut them out.  You can line them up the the larger poinsettia in the middle of the die or cut them out by hand.  These are layered on top of the center corner poinsettia.  And of course I added Rhinestone Jewels to add a little bling to the poinsettias!  Every card needs a little bling.

Last Stamp the sentiment “Deck the Halls” with Cherry Cobbler ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut this piece out with the large scalloped oval from Stampin’ Up!’s Layering Ovals framelits.  Cut a second larger oval from the Cucumber Crush cardstock.  Attach the sentiment to the card with dimensionals.  Stamp a Holly leaf using Cucumber Crush ink for the leaves and Cherry Cobbler ink for the berries.  Cut out with the Holly die.  Attach next to the sentiment with a glue dot!

This is one of 4 Cards that my Stamp Club members made yesterday at our monthly Stamp Club meeting.  Want card ideas in your inbox each month?  Join my stamp club and receive exclusive ideas in your email each month!  You can check out more information on my Stamp Club here.

Happy August! Carols of Christmas stamp set

Carols of Christmas stamp setToday I am sharing the new Carols of Christmas stamp set that you can now order!  This is one of the new beautiful Holiday stamp sets that will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. 

My Stamping cohort Lisa from the Stamping New England Design team made this beautiful card.

The card base is Whisper White cardstock with a layer of So Saffron Cardstock.  Next is a layer of Pacific Point cardstock that has been cut with the sky thinlits that are part of this set, so the So saffron cardstock shows thru the moon and stars…

Lisa made the snow by tearing a few scraps of Whisper White cardstock and layering them to look like snow drifts.  The trees and deer are also cut using the framelits. 

Here is a short video highlighting some of the things that you can make with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Carols of Christmas Handmade Card

Carols of Christmas Today I am sharing a card that one of my team members made using the new Carols of Christmas stamp set which will be available in August.  How can it almost be August??

Perfect timing for my Christmas in July Class this Friday!  I love being part of a Stamping Team.  My group, Stamping New England gets together once a month to design projects for upcoming classes.  I can’t believe the variety of ideas that two different people can design using the same cardstock and stamp set.

The Carols of Christmas stamp set is beautiful and I can already envision so many beautiful cards with it.

Carols of Christmas stamp setAnd what really makes this set special is the thinlits that are also available.  They are beautiful!
Carols of Christmas thinlits




Here are the details on this card:
The card base is made with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Dapper Denim cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  The first layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The outline thinlit was used around the edge of this piece of cardstock.  (You will need to run this piece of cardstock thru the Big Shot twice to outline the whole layer).  I love the detailed cuttings on this thinlit..  I see some great frames for Family Christmas pictures!  Margaret used scraps of Gold Foil and Gold Glimmer paper behind the detailed cutouts along the edge of the frame.

The next layer is the gold embossed piece of Dapper Denim Designer paper that is part of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Paper.  This piece is cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Next is a set of pine trees cut using the pine tree thinlit with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Last is a piece of Whisper white cardstock stamped with “Peace on Earth” and Versamark ink and embossed with Gold Embossing powder.  This sentiment is cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.

These are the products used for this project.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set will be available to order on
August 1st (146037).

Use one Sketch to make two different Cards

use one sketch to make two different cardsToday I am sharing two cards that were made from the same stamp set and Designer paper using one sketch to make two different cards.

My Stamping friend Jeannie and I were working on ideas for a Christmas in July class using the new Stampin’ Up!  Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.

We picked a random sketch from a stack of MojoMonday sketches that I keep around for inspiration.  And as you can see our two cards are very different!

Need inspiration??  I love sketches!  I chose a sketch that has an element that matches the stamp set that I want to use.  In this case Santa’s Sleigh.  Then we selected the Be Merry Designer paper which coordinates with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstocks and inks.  Did you know that Stampin’ Up! prints the colors for each designer paper on the back of the package??  I love that.  So when I am designing using a specific paper, I just pull a couple of pieces of each color of cardstock and pick out those inks.   Then it is time to design!

So the Reindeer card is made with a Cherry Cobbler Base, a layer of Whisper White and then a layer of the cute little reindeer pattern from the  Be Merry designer series paper.

The second card uses Garden Green cardstock as the base with a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock and the small triangle pattern in Garden Green that looks like trees.  I have found that if you are working with green shades, brown can be a really good color to use as a layer to set off the pattern of the designer series paper.  For this card, the design is flipped to be landscape to accommodate  the sleigh and the tree.  The Sleigh is cut from Red Glimmer paper to add a little bling to the card.  After all, what is a card without bling?

Want to make these cards?  Here are the supplies!

Seasonal Bells Christmas Card

Today I am sharing a handmade Christmas card made with the Seasonal Bells and Christmas Pines stamp sets from
StSeasonal Bellsampin’ up!.  Today’s share is inspired by this week’s Global Design Challenge which is a sketch challenge.
gdp066












This is a quick and easy handmade Christmas card made with Mint Macaron cardstock.  both the card base and the top layer are cut from Mint Macaron cardstock. 

The pine boughs are stamped with White Craft ink and embossed with White embossing powder.  The star background is stamped with Mint Macaron ink in the background.   Next “Tis the Season” message is stamped with Emerald Envy ink and cut out using a tag die from the Project LIfe Framelits set.   Next the Bells are stamped using Real Red ink on Whisper White Cardstock and punched out with the coordinating Bell punch.  I used the 1/8″ handheld circle punch to punch a hole in the top of each of the bells.  Next a piece of Real Red Baker’s Twine to tie a bow thru the two bells. bells-cu My tip for this card is to thread the Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine thru the Real Red Baker’s Twine when you tie the knot on the bells.  Then wrap a longer piece of Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine around the top layer of the card 3 times.  Attach on the back with adhesive.  Attach the card front to the Mint Macaron card base. with dimensionals.

red-bells-cu-1Last but not least I embellished the bells with small rhinestone jewels.   a Glue Dot helps to hold the bells in place.  Last is highlighting the pattern on the bells with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  This adds a nice shimmer to the detail of the bells!

Here are the products that were used to create this card.

Make your own Handmade Christmas Boxes

Today I am sharing a set of beautiful Handmade Christmas Boxes that one of my team members made for our Bag it, Box it and Tag it December Classes! You too can make handmade Christmas Boxes for your Holiday packages.  I love the Stamping New England Design Team!  Each month, 4 of us design 3 projects with the same Designer Paper and stamp sets so we have 12 very different projects each month!.

Handmade Chrstimas boxes


These really cute little boxes are made using the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and are perfect for packing cute little stocking gifts!

So to make a handmade Christmas box.  Decide what you want the finished size of the box to be.  For example:  if you want a 4″ x 6″ box that is 1″ deep, then you would:

1.  Add the Width plus the depth for 2 sides together.  So 4″ + 1″ + 1″ = 6″
2.  Do the same for the Length of the box –
6″ + 1″ + 1″= 8″
3.  This means that you would cut a box bottom that is 6″ x 8″ and a second piece the same size for the top.
4.  Score each of the four sides of the top box piece at 1″.   Cut up the score line on the long side to the intersection of the score lines.  Fold along all score lines.  Where you cut will make a tab to put the box together.  Add adhesive (I use tear & tape) to the flaps and attach to the inside of the other flaps.  This will make your box top.

box-pattern  Repeat this step for the box bottom.  However, when you score the sides, score just over 1″ – at 1 1/16th on each side.  This will make the bottom a hair smaller so the top fits over the bottom of the box.

In this example a piece of the Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Lane Designer paper was used to make the box top and a coordinating solid color of cardstock to make the bottoms.

Stay tuned for more ideas from our Box it, Bag it and Tag it class!

Handmade Father Christmas Card

Today I am sharing a handmade card that was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest made with the Father Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I made this card with two different color combinations and also made a slight change to the layering of the card.
father christmas
This card uses the Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper from Stampin’ Up!  I love the color combination of Real Red, Crumb Cake and Chocolate chip in this patterned paper and couldn’t decide which card I liked better. 

Father Christmas is stamped on a
2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock with Black Momento ink.  I used alcohol markers to color in the image.

The Whisper White piece is layered onto 2 pieces of cardstock.  One is Real Red and the second is Crumb Cake.  The layers are reversed on the two cards so the Father Christmas image pops with the pattern of the Designer Paper. 
So the dimensions are:
  1. Whisper White layer:  2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  2. 2nd Layer:  2 5/8″ x 3 5/8″
  3. 3rd Layer:  2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
Layering with 1/8″ of an inch makes a very narrow layer.  If you want a wider layer, you would layer with 1/4″ between the layers.   You may notice that the Crumb Cake Card has a slightly wider layer between the card base and the card front.  I used a 3/8″ layer between the base of the Crumb Cake card and the Card front vs.  a 1/4″ layer between the Rfather-cueal red card base and card front.

So the dimensions for the Crumb Cake card are:
  1. Card Base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  2. Real Red layer:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
  3. Crumb Cake DSP Layer:  5″ x 3 3/4″
The dimensions for the Real Red card are:
  1. Card Base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  2. Crumb Cake layer:  5 1/4″ x 4″
  3. Real Red DSP Layer:  5″ x 3 3/4″
Father Christmas was colored with Alcohol markers.  I used a Cherry Cobbler like color for Santa’s coat.  His shoes are belt are colored with shades of gray.  My goal was to bring out each of the toys that he is carrying with a different color.  The bag is crumb cake and the tin man is also grays.  The tree is colored with an old olive shade of color.  Last, I used the Wink of Stella to color over the images to add some sparkle.  You can’t really see the sparkle in the picture, but it really made the card pop!

So which card do you like best?

Happy Stamping!

Seasonal Bells Handmade Card

Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Holiday seasonal bellsseason using the Seasonal Bells stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.  This card was inspired by this week’s Global Design challenge sketch.  Here are the details for this card.

The card base is Real Red cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Emerald Envy cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and then a piece of the Presents and Pinecone Designer Paper cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″.

I wanted to try out the new Stitched Framelits.  So the center white piece is cut using the square framelit and layered onto a piece of Real Red Cardstock.

bells-close-upMarilyn’s Tip:  you can use the square framelit to cut a rectangle.  Line the framelit up on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and roll it half way thru the Big Shot.  Don’t roll it thru the whole way or you will have a square.  Roll the plate with cardstock and framelit backwards and then move the framelit down.  Line up the top of the framelit down the piece that has been cut part way.  You can feel the stitches on the edge of the framelit line up.  Put the sandwich back into your Big Shot and roll in the opposite direction part way.  When you pull out your piece you will have a cut and stitched rectangle!

Next I stamped two bells on Whisper White with Silver ink and embossed them with Silver Embossing Powder.  These were cut out with the coordinating Bell Punch.  Next I punched a hole in the top of the bells and tied them together with a piece of narrow Silver Ribbon. Next I stamped the banner with the Happy Christmas stamp in Emerald Envy ink from the Seasonal Bells stamp set and cut this with the coordinating Banner Framelit from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

And last but not least is the bling!  I adorned the bells with Rhinestone jewels.  I also added a couple of rhinestone jewels to the bottom of the middle section of the card.

Here are the supplies that I used to make this card:

Candy Cane Lane Card

Today I have a handmade Christmas card that is made using Stampin’ Up!’s Candy Cane Lane Designer paper.  This card layout is inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday card sketch!
gingerbread-house-w
Here are the details on this card:
Card Base:  Whisper white cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Real Red Cardstock cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and then a layer of Candy Cane Lane Designer paper cut to 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  Snip the top left corner of the designer paper to add contrast to the card.

Next is a scalloped circle cut using the Layered Circle Framelits with another piece of the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper.

The main element of this card is a piece of whisper white cardstock cut to 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ layered onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock but to 2 5/8″ x 3 5/8″. 

The Gingerbread house is actually not stamped but is cut from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper.  I used stampin’ dimensionals to raise the cut out house.  Last I stamped the message from the Tin of Tags Stamp set with Real Red ink.

This is a great Christmas Greeting stamp set that has been designed to be part of a Project Kit.  But – you can just order the set which I did since I love this set for Greetings on my Holiday cards.

Hang Your Stocking Christmas Card

Today I am sharing one of the cards that I made for the OctoHang Your Stocking Cardber Stamping New England Design Team projects using the new Hang Your Stocking stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.

The card base is a piece of Garden Green cardstock cut to  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Next is a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock cut to 5″ x 3 3/4″  and embossed with the Cable Knit embossing folder

NOTE:  This folder is much thicker that other embossing folders which really adds to the detail of the embossed image.  The best way to bring out the detail of the embossed image is to spritz your cardstock with a little water before embossing it.  Also – due to the thickness of the folder, you only want to use one plate.

The stocking is layered onto a piece of the Warmth & Cheer DSP that is layered on a piece of Real Red cardstock.  The detail of the stocking die is beautiful.  The stocking for this card is cut from a piece of Warmth & Cheer DSP with a detail stocking cut from Real Red over the top.  The stocking is decorated with a piece of Holly that is stamped with Garden Green ink and embellished with Berries that are stamped with Real Red ink and then embossed with the Real Red Glitter Embossing powder.

Another Star of Light Christmas Card

I am really loving the new Star of Light Stamp set and thinlits from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  And the funny part is that this is not a set that I immediately ordered when I saw this catalog.  pink-star-of-light-2wI borrowed the set from a friend and of course have now ordered it.  Why can’t I have everything?  Oh Yeah – I don’t have enough room to store everything!  LOL

So the details on this card.  This card is stunning but a fairly quick and simple card.  The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Soft Sky Cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  The next layer is a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The swirl on the background is stamped with Blushing Bride ink and the small stars have been stamped with Soft Sky ink.  Each side of the DSP is layered with a piece of Silver Glitter ribbon from the Holiday catalog.

Next I cut a star using the Detailed Starlight Thinlits from Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.  Note:  the best way to cut this particular star is to cut the center pattern first and then line up the star outline around the detail design!  I used 1/2″ pieces of the new Foam Adhesive Strips to on the back of the star so that it pops from the card! 

Then the bling:  I used a couple of the Fancy Frost Sequins and Rhinestone Jewels to add some detail to the card.

Here are the supplies that were used for this card:

Star of Light Handmade Card

Today I am sharing a handmade Christmas card that I made using the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light Stamp set and coordinating thinlits.  star-of-light-2wThis card was inspired by the week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

So the details on this card:

The card base is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Soft Sky cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.

The panel on the right is a 3 1/8″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock layered on a piece of Dazzling Details Glimmer paper.

The background of this panel is a Watercolor technique on Whisper White cardstock using re-inkers and an aqua painter. Place 2 drops of Island Indigo re-inker and about 10 drops of water in the top of star-of-light2-cua button container.  Stir it up with an aqua painter and brush across the cardstock.  NOTE:  practice on a scrap of white paper first to get the level of shading that you want.  Then I repeated the process with soft sky re-inker.  Then set this piece aside to dry.

The Panel on the left is a  1 1/2″ piece of  Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper which has been lightly brayered with Soft Sky ink.  This is also layered onto a piece of Dazzling Details Glimmer paper.  I added a piece of Blushing Bride and Silver Glitter ribbon.

the Snowflakes are cut from Dazzling Details Glimmer paper and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper cut with the detailed Starlitght thinlits dies.  These are layered on my watercolored panel that has been stamped with Blushing Bride  using the swirl stamp.  The small star is a stamped with versamark and embossed with Silver Embossing powder on a scrap of whisper white.

It is hard to tell, but I used the Wink of Stella Clear Brush to add dazzle to the blushing bride swirl.  The snowflakes are attached with glue dots.  and of course the center of the snowflakes have been embellished with Rhinestone Jewels.
