Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas!

Hey there! A few days ago I found an idea for a 9th Christmas card using the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. This is not an original idea by no means, but here's my version using new designer paper and ribbon:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Although the photography doesn't do it justice, I embossed the Cherry Cobbler layer with the Polka Dot Basics folder. I wrapped the front with Silver 3/8" Metallic-edge ribbon.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

After punching two identical reindeer with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch I trimmed off one set of reindeer antlers and added a Red Glimmer bow, also punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I mounted them with dimensionals on an oval cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

I had little strips left from cutting another project, and they worked perfect to add to the sides of the sentiment layer inside.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas Deck Those Halls!

Hey there! The Carols of Christmas Bundle is so fun! A fan favorite of those allowed to preview the upcoming Holiday Catalog months ago, I've been told there are MORE products coming in the Holiday Catalog that coordinate! I'm also partial to anything named "Carol", so I can hardly wait!

While I'm waiting, I've created another card with the Carols of Christmas Bundle, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst, and Gold Foil Sheets for my Christmas in July class:

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

 I used the Card Front Thinlets Dies to cut the border and the blooms. I embossed the greeting with gold powder on the Very Vanilla layer.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

 I added Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to the flower centers to pull it all together.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I gold embossed a sentiment from Layering Love. There are many non-Christmas themed sentiments that can be purposed for Christmas cards. Look through your stash and you may be suprised!

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas!

Hey there! The Carols of Christmas Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek is exclusive for  Demonstrators this month, but next month YOU can order it too!

I LOVE the images in the Carols of Christmas set, and having the Card Front Builder Framelits to coordinate is just so much sweeter! I chose to use Basic Black, Powder Pink, Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer to create my first card:

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the Basic Black layer with the moon & stars card front builder thinlet before embossing with the Woodland folder. I sponged the raised tree trunks and branches with White Craft ink.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped "PEACE ON EARTH" with Basic Black Archival ink on Powder Pink, quickly sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set. I then cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits circle.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

The trees are cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. The deer is also embossed with black ink and clear powder, then cut with a coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlet.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

There are only two bold sentiments in Carols of Christmas, so I used "sending wishes your way" from Butterfly Basics, and "merry christmas" from Teeny Tiny Wishes inside the card. I used the negative image cut with the tree die to sponge Powder Pink for a background.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps6

This card, along with one more using Carols of Christmas, are both featured in my Christmas in July class this weekend. Come back tomorrow to see the 2nd one!

Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stocking!

Hey there! Another set from last year's Holiday Catalog that I didn't get to play with enough was Hang Your Stocking and the matching framelits. I nosed around on Pinterest a bit and came up with a design using last year's products that I was easily able to adapt to current ones. I used Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions folder for the backgrounds of this happy stocking:

Stampin_up_hang_your_stocking_carolpaynestamps1

I used the "stitching" stamp from Hang Your Stocking with Cherry Cobbler ink before cutting with the Christmas Stocking Thinlet. There are five different stocking dies in the set! I added a Gold 1/8" Trim bow and stamped the greeting in Garden Green ink.

Stampin_up_hang_your_stocking_carolpaynestamps2

After I cut out the stocking I added the snowflake to the bottom right corner with a gold Metallic Enamel Shape for some bling.

Stampin_up_hang_your_stocking_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from Hang Your Stocking. I used the opposite side of the design used on the front for a 1/2" wide side strip. A tiny snowflake and tree complete my design.

Stampin' Up! Sheet Music Seasonal Bells!

Hey there! I ordered the Seasonal Bells stamp set too late before last Christmas to get a good chance to play with it. I’m glad it carried over to the new catalog!

For my Christmas in July card today I combined Seasonal Bells with Sheet Music Background, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White. I embossed the Pool Party panel with the Sparkle Textured Impressions folder and used Bermuda Bay ink and ribbon for that “pop” of color almost every card needs!

Stampin_up_seasonal_bells_sheet_music_carolpaynestamps2

After embossing one bell with Versamark and silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder , I stamped a second bell on Pool Party with Bermuda Bay ink then quickly sprinkled with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed. If you work quicky you CAN emboss in any color of Stampin’ Up! ink! I punched both with the Bell punch. Bermuda Bay 3/8” Mini Chevron Ribbon anchor both bells to the card front, while Stampin’ Dimensionals provide hidden support!

Stampin_up_seasonal_bells_sheet_music_carolpaynestamps3

After using a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker to ink a portion of the “Best Wishes” image, I stamped the curly top & bottom frames on white, then added “NOEL” with the Labeler Alphabet. After punching with the Pretty Label Punch, I punched again from both Pool Party and Smoky Slate.  I cut each in half long-ways to add behind the greeting. Two rhinestones add a bit of bling.

Stampin_up_seasonal_bells_sheet_music_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped-off the Basic Gray-inked Sheet Music image twice before laying the white layer on the rubber and gently tapping my fingers over it. I finished  off with the Seasonal Bells image “Happy Christmas”,  stamped in Bermuda Bay.

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird Christmas!

Hey there! Some of the cards we're making at Christmas in July are created with non-Christmas sets. I created today's card with the Swirly Bird set and Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Starting with a Wild Wasabi card base, I embossed the lower portion of a 4" x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake layer with a Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions folder, followed by a 2" x 5 1/4" strip of Wood Textures Designer Paper.

I cut a Wild Wasabi "wreath" with a Swirly Scribbles Thinlet, adding a bow tied with Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon and a few loops of thread pulled from a 6" piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon. I stamped a Real Red Swirly Bird "cardinal" on Real Red card stock, then hand-cut with a single pearl eye.

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

LOVE the tone-on-tone "HAPPY"!

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

 I used a Real Red Stampin Write Marker to ink  "CHRISTMAS" from the Better Together greeting, adding a tiny Heart & Stars Elements star with a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! At Home with You!

Hey there! I'm working on more cards for my Christmas in July class next week. Want to come?

I created today's card with another new-but-not-exclusively-Christmas bundle,  At Home with You!

Stampin_up_at_home_with_you_carolpaynestamps1

The door and lanterns are white heat-embossed. The wreath, stamped with Garden Green Classic ink, was quickly sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set. All are cut out with At Home Framelit Dies. I unwound a Boxwood Wreath to adhere over the door with glue dots.

Stampin_up_at_home_with_you_carolpaynestamps2

I added touches of red to the holly berries with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.

Stampin_up_at_home_with_you_carolpaynestamps3

I created the "door" with Wood Textures Designer Paper, so both sides look like wood! The wall behind the door is embossed with the Brick Wall Folder, slightly stamped with the Watercolor Wash Background inked with Crumb Cake and stamped off three times.

Stampin_up_at_home_with_you_carolpaynestamps4

I added a sentiment from Cookie Cutter Christmas that just fits inside the garland.

Stampin' Up! Woodland Merry Mistletoe!

Hey there! Today's post is another creation with Merry Mistletoe and the Woodland Textured Impressions folder:

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps

 To emboss the layers so they match, I used a technique similar to “double-time” or “triple-time” stamping. I lightly adhered both layers together, centering the top layer, to emboss both in the Woodland folder.

I stamped the reindeer in Crumb Cake, cutting with a Stitched Shapes Framelit. Layering a Garden Green oval behind, I adhered to the Crumb Cake layer with a 1 ½”square of Be Merry Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Labeler alphabet to stamp the “MERRY”,  then punched with the Classic Label. I backed with a Cherry Cobbler  Classic Label.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps3

Inside sentiment is with Cherry Cobbler, a few more Merry Mistletoe images are stamped with  Garden Green and Crumb Cake.

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe!

 Hey there! I'm back again today with another Christmas card, this time using the new catalog set, Merry Mistletoe and the Be Merry Designer Series Paper:
Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps1

Be Merry Designer Series Paper contains just three colors: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Whisper White, but all of the prints and designs lend to gorgeous, Christmas-y looks! I stamped the reindeer with Early Espresso on Whisper White before cutting with a Stitched Shapes oval framelit. A Cherry Cobbler oval cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit makes a great frame. I added a Cherry Cobbler heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps2

I used a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker to ink up just the "wishes" portion of the "Christmas Wishes" sentiment, also from Merry Mistletoe. I hand cut the banner ends of all three banners, and added a Garden Green star, also from the Regals Enamel Shapes.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used more Merry Mistletoe images. Fun!
