This is a quick and easy Christmas Card you can make using a Photopolymer Stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Festival of Trees. It has a matching punch which is always awesome! It keeps getting better because you can buy both and save 15%. I also used the 2 1/2″ and the 2″ Circle Punches to make this card. The sentiment is from Cheerful Tags and the Designer Series Paper is called Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack. It is a pack of 48 sheets of paper with 12 different designs. If you don’t like one side, you can turn it over and use the other. This Designer Series Paper is also in the Holiday Catalog.
I saw a card similar to this one on Pinterest the other day. The colors of the other card were totally different and so was the saying. Actually the square were a bit different too! In any case, I guess the card I saw inspired me to make one similar but in my own style. Pinterest is great for getting ideas for cards. You can do a search on a particular stamp set or you can find all sorts of card layouts. There are thousands and thousands of samples to look at. Probably even millions (although I really have no idea). Whenever I need inspiration I go there and look around. It is amazing.
I used the Photopolymer stamp set called Endless Birthday Wishes. It is not in the catalog but you can still order it. There are quite a few Photopolymer Stamp Sets that are not in the catalog but still available. If you click on the tab above that says “Merchandise Not In The Catalog” you can see all the available sets.
Occasionally I forget to look at my calendar a week ahead so all of a sudden I realized I know someone with a birthday in a couple of days. I want to make a card that is nice but quick. This is a very simple and easy card to make if you are in a hurry. I just stamped the leaves twice in Wild Wasabi and once in Marina Mist. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black. I took a piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot with a new embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog called Filigree Framed Textured Impressions and put it all together. Simple but still elegant.
The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog has so many awesome products in it, that I think I pretty much bought it all! I really loved this catalog because it had so many different styles that it everyone should find something to love. My problem is that I want it all!
I made this card using a Photopolymer Stamp Set called Festival of Trees. It has a matching punch and you can save 15% by purchasing both. I stamped the trees once in the foreground and then again (before re-inking) in the background to give it a little depth. Then I took my Chalk Marker and “colored” a little snow on the branches of the trees. I used a stamp from Holiday Home to stamp the snowflakes. The colors I used are Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.
Stampin Up is now offering a new Photopolymer Stamp Set called Gentle Peace. It is a beautiful Christmas Stamp Set and is only available until supplies last. The best thing about this set is it would go perfectly with our Blendabilites.
The item number is 139523 and the price is $15.95.
There are other stamp sets that are available that are not in any catalog. If you go to the top of my blog there is a link that says “Merchandise Not Available In Any Catalog”. Click on that to see other items that are available for purchase. There are a lot of great sets on this page!
Every year Stampin’ Up! donates a portion of the proceeds of the sale of a stamp set to The Ronald McDonald House. This year the stamp set is called Flamingo Lingo. You can find it on the back cover of the Annual Catalog. Who doesn’t like Flamingos? Everyone likes Flamingos! It has has six other stamps in the set that all match either a punch or a Framelit set. You probably already have at least some of the punches or Framelits. So support a great cause and get a cute Flamingo stamp set at the same time! You can make a difference!
Wednesday a few of my club members and I got together to make the cards that are in the Watercolor Winter Card Kit. This kit is in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. I showed you a few of the cards yesterday and here are some more.
I love the colors in this kit. There are Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. It has has Gold Glimmer Paper. If you buy the kit and the matching stamps, it comes with everything you need to make 20 cards! I did use a couple of the snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins that are also in the Holiday Catalog.
