Gallery Grunge Merry Christmas Card by Joanne Brown

Joanne Brown is one of my amazing Candy Hearts team members. She made today’s card using three stamp sets (Gallery Grunge, Lovely as a Tree, and Farmhouse Christmas) and1 the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I love how she combined all these different products in a way that makes you think they’re all from the same set!

Here’s what she made:

Takeout Treat Box for Christmas

Today I’m sharing a fun little Takeout Treat Box I made for a group of stampers at my retreat last month. I used the Takeout Thinlits Dies to cut the box out of Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. I tied a piece of Basic Black Solid Twine around the box, and the finishing touch is a little wooden element I painted with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint, adhered using a Mini Glue Dot. Easy peasy quick and easy!

 

Here’s what I made:

Warm & Cozy Homemade Kindness Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made using the Homemade Kindness stamp set, which has cozy, sweet images from an old fashioned kitchen. I stamped the images in black Stazon ink onto watercolor paper, then used an Aqua Painter to watercolor the images. I used the embossing die from the Pretty Park Framelits Dies to emboss – or actually deboss – the stones on the kitchen floor, and I cut the sentiment using the Lakeside Framelits Dies.

The colors are Pool Party and Whisper White, with just a little pop of Real Red on the sentiment, which reads, “May Your Season Be Merry & Bright.”

Here’s what I made:

Correction: I later realized that I cut the trees with the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies instead of the In the Woods Framelits Dies. They both have a tree and I just forgot which one I used by the time I wrote this blog post. Either one would work great on this card. You can get the set I actually used here: Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (144679) 20 dies for $39.

Christmas Traditions & Staircase Card for ICS Blog Hop

 

It’s time for the ICS Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see all the great projects made by the amazing stampers in this group! This month’s theme is Christmas Cards Galore. I opted to make a very peaceful Christmas card. I used the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies, the Christmas Traditions Punch Box, and Subtles Designer Series Paper. The white dots on the DSP looks like big fluffy snow, don’t they? I love how serene it is. And the best part? It’s very simple to make, but it looks complicated.

Here’s what I made:

Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies, Christmas Traditions Punch Box, and Subtles 6x6 Designer Series Paper, by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Balmy Blue card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Balmy Blue Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Christmas Traditions stamp set:

  • image in Balmy Blue ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • NOTE: I prefer to use the thick CS for certain cut pieces, especially if they are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You can use regular or thick white CS for everything on the card, if you only have one.

Cut using the Christmas Traditions Punch:

  • stamped image

Die cut using the Christmas Staircase Thinlits:

  • one tree shape
  • six boughs

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • die cut tree glued onto the DSP layer
  • die cut coughs glued onto the tree: 3 at the bottom, 2 in the middle, then 1 at the top
  • stamped image adhered onto the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
