Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Triangle Layers with Tidings & Trimmings!

Hey there! Today I have my final card created for Christmas in July Week! I was flipping through some past creations and ran across a couple of cards I had created with this technique. I'm still not sure what it is called, but you can find my previous creations, with dimensions and tips, HERE and HERE.

The Tidings of Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper is so pretty, and on sale 15% off right now, so I wanted to create one of my Christmas In July Week cards with one of the pieces. The designer paper is one piece of double-sided Tidings of Christmas, cut on the diagonal in an "X", then two opposite pieces are flipped over before adhering to the card front.

I used this sentiment from Tidings & Trimmings again, and then added open stars, which are also from the same set. I cut it and the Evening Evergreen mat layer with Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I finished it all with a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones and a bow tied from Evening Evergreen 3/8" Chevron Weave Ribbon.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_triangle_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the same stars with Evening Evergreen ink, and the Tidings & Trimmings sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stampin' Up! Tidings & Trimmings Faux Corner Flip Fold for Christmas In July Week!

Hey there! Today I have another Tidings & Trimmings card to share with you for Christmas In July Week! I created a "Faux Corner Flip Fold" with the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle and Tidings of Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_corner_flip_fold_caolpaynestamps1

I cut out the sentiment from Tidings & Trimmings with a Stitched So Sweetly die, then accented it with holly and a bow cut with Christmas Trimmings dies. I finished them off with Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_corner_flip_fold_caolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another Tidings & Trimmings sentiment, and added another pair of holly leaves. The berry is also cut with a Christmas Tidings die. The die set provides a die with several tiny berry circles you can cut with one die!

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Evergreen Elegance Z-fold!

Hey there! It's Thursday, and today I have the 4th card for Christmas In July Week! Today I'm using Evergreen Elegance again with a z-fold and the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder!

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps8

The guide on each end of the Evergreen Border Punch made it easy to punch this almost 11" long strip of trees to add to the z-fold arm!

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps1

All of the sentiments and images used on this card are from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, with the exception of the redbirds, which are from the Garden Birdhouses set.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps3

I made sure I stamped all of the sentiments and trees first before embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps5

I decided to forgo any other embellishments besides the two redbirds, which I hand-cut with my Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps6

This was a simple card to make. You can find the measurements to make this card HERE when I made a Ride The Range z-fold.

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Evergreen Elegance!

Hey there! I'm back again with Day #3 of Christmas In July Week! Today I have another new bundle from the Annual Catalog, Evergreen Elegance! This bundle consists of a red-rubber cling stamp set and a border punch. I didn't use the punch on today's card, but come back tomorrow and I will share a creation with it, ok?

For my card today I combined the Evergreen Elegance stamp set with the Wintry 3D embossing folders and gold heat embossing. Evening Evergreen ink, Basic White card stock, and gold embellishments all come together for such and elegant look!

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the vellum with one of the Wintry 3D embossing folders:

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps4
I heat-embossed the traditional Merry Christmas with gold powder, then added gold twine from the Elegant Trim Combo Pack and Gilded Gems to coordinate.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps5

I cut a mat for the inside sentiment layer with a Stitched Rectangle die.

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Tidings & Trimmings!

Hey there! I'm back again today with another card for my Christmas In July Week! Today's card is an easel-fold with the Tidings & Trimmings bundle again:
Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_easel_carolpaynestamps1
I love how you can really feature the card front with the easel-fold!

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_easel_carolpaynestamps6

I stamped one of the stockings from Tidings & Trimmings with Cherry Cobbler ink, then cut with a Christmas Tidings die. The trims peeking out of the stocking top are also cut with Christmas Tidings dies.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_easel_carolpaynestamps3

I made sure I stamped the greeting before embossing the Very Vanilla layer with one of the Wintry 3D embossing folders.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_easel_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped and cut a Tidings & Trimmings star with a Christmas Trimmings die, then adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to create the "stop" for the easel.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_easel_carolpaynestamps7

I love this Tidings & Trimmings card so much! I can't decide which one, yesterday's or today's, I like best!

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Week!

Hey there! I traditionally hold a Christmas in July class at my house, but this year circumstances are not letting it happen, so I decided to do the next best thing, hold a Christmas In July Week here on my blog!

Today's card is the first one I created with the Tidings and Trimmings bundle from the Annual Catalog!

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_carolpaynestamps1

I used Crumb Cake as my neutral instead of the usual Basic White or Very Vanilla, stamping directly on it with Evening Evergreen, then cutting with a Hippo & Friends die. I cut a larger mat layer from Cherry Cobbler with another Hippo & Friends die. The holly & star embellishments are cut with Christmas Trimmings dies.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_carolpaynestamps3

I embossed the Soft Succulent layer with one of the Wintry 3D embossing folders that is sized to fit in the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I chose my card stock colors to coordinate with the colors in the Tidings of Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Paper I used on the card front.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped again on Crumb Cake with a Tidings & Trimmings sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_carolpaynestamps5

I had fun creating my first Christmas card of 2021! I will be back tomorrow with another Tidings & Trimmings creation!

My first card features the Sweet Strawberry Bundle and the Give It A Whirl Dies!

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_whirl_carolpaynestamps1

I love that the Give It A Whirl dies include a little arrow to show how to turn the dial!

I added one of my favorite Bumblebee Trinkets to the Granny Apple Green layer I embellished with the Stitched Greenery die!

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_whirl_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a sentiment from Positive Thoughts!

Stampin_up_sweet_as_a_peach_carolpaynestamps1

The Give It A Whirl Dies have three different window dies to choose from.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers!

Hey there! Today I have a card created with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set  and the Stitched Greenery die that I'm crazy about! I needed another sympathy-type card, but I wanted it to be cheerful too, so I used Daffodil Delight card stock and In Good Taste Designer paper with the aforementioned Celebrate Sunflowers to create this:
Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestajmps1
I started by cutting the sunflower and butterfly from the Daffodil Delight card stock layer, then embossing the  layer minus the sunflower and butterfly with the Stitched Greenery die. I then adhered the layer over a piece of In Good Taste Designer, then added the sunflower and butterfly back in their original spots with tiny dots of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestajmps2

I forgot to stamp the greeting before embossing with the Stitched Greenery die, but stamping on this layer worked out fine anyway!

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestajmps3

I'm kind of obsessed with the Bumblebee Trinkets! They are the perfect finishing touch for this card!

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestajmps4

I stamped the sunflower on the inside layer and on the envelope. I added the "Hugs Prayers Love" sentiment from Positive Thoughts with Early Espresso ink.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Garden A Happy Hello!

Hey there! Today I have a fun-fold card to share with you called Pop & Twist! It's been around for awhile, but I recently found an easier way to make it, so I decided to give it a try. I used the Daisy Garden background stamp with Sunny Sentiments.

Stampin_up_daisy_garden_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

I stamped the daisies with Tuxedo Black Memento ink so I could color them with Stampin' Blends. After I colored the daisies and the greenery, I colored around all of it with my Light Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends marker. I added a bit of shimmer to the daisy centers with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stampin_up_daisy_garden_carolpaynestamps3

I cut out the greeting from Sunny Sentiments with a Tasteful Labels die, then backed it with two more Tasteful Labels die-cuts. I finished it off by adding a Bumblebee Trinket.

Stampin_up_daisy_garden_carolpaynestamps4

As much as I love the card front, the star of the show is really the inside!

Stampin_up_daisy_garden_carolpaynestamps6 (2)

I lined the inside of the card with a Balmy Blue print from the You're A Peach Designer Paper, and used another Sunny Sentiment. I sent this card to a special friend who is just like a sister.

I currently do not have a tutorial for this card, but here's a great one I found on YouTube!
