Christmas Traditions In The Woods

Today’s card combines The Christmas Traditions Punch Box with the In The Woods Framelits Dies and the Softly Falling embossing folder to create a soft and sweet holiday card. 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.

Layered Farmhouse Framelits Christmas Card

I made today’s card using the Farmhouse Christmas bundle (Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and Farmhouse Framelits Dies). I used several layers of Shimmery White card stock (CS) to create the snowy scene, and used an Aqua Painter to color the die cut pieces. I got the idea from a card on page 12 of the 2018 Holiday Catalog. They used the truck and the fence, and some Embossing Paste for snow.

Here’s the card I CASEd:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Gray CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Shimmery White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (4 pieces: 3 for the snow layers and 1 for the inside of the card base)

Stamped with the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set:

  • house with string lights, tree, truck, and wreath in black Stazon ink onto scraps of Shimmery White CS
  • sentiment in black Stazon ink onto the bottom right corner of the top layer
  • sentiment in Balmy Blue ink just offset from black sentiment

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • shadows on house in Crumb Cake
  • string lights in Real Red, Call Me Clover, and Pacific Point
  • tires in Basic Gray

Colored using an Aqua Painter :

  • house in Crumb Cake; front door in Real Red; roof and windows in Basic Gray
  • tree in Soft Suede
  • truck in Real Red; tires and metal pieces in Basic Gray; tree in Garden Green
  • wreath in Garden Green; bow in Real Red
  • background (bottom Shimmery White CS layer) in Balmy Blue
  • NOTE: There are several ways you can get the ink onto the Aqua Painter: 1) squeeze an ink pad to get some ink onto the inside of the lid, and use that at your palette; 2) drop some ink from a refill onto a clear block or into a small bowl; 3) use a Stampin’ Write Marker to apply some ink onto a clear block. I used option 3, the markers, for this card.

Die cut using the Farmhouse Framelits:

  • house, tree, truck, and wreath
  • fence from a scrap of Crumb Cake CS
  • curve across the top of the top and middle Shimmery White CS layers (I flipped over the top one so the curves didn’t match up.)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • middle Shimmery White CS (snow) layer glued onto the bottom (painted, full size) snow layer, lining up the two bottom corners
  • house and tree glued onto the middle/bottom snow layers
  • fence glued over the middle snow layer, house, and tree, and the excell trimmed off the sides using Paper Snips
  • top (shortest) snow layer glued over all, lining up the two bottom corners
  • truck glued onto the top snow layer
  • wreath glued onto the front of the truck
  • bottom (full size) snow layer glued onto the Basic Gray CS layer

Joy Card with Snowfall Thinlits Dies

Today I’m sharing one more card I made using the Snowflake Showcase products. I hope you were able to buy yours while they were available in November. I used the Snow is Glistening stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits Dies. And I colored some pearls with a Blends Marker as the little tips of the snowflake. 

 

Here’s what I made:

I made a few copies of this card. It wasn’t until I was already writing this blog post that I realized I took a photo of the one with a crooked snowflake in the center. Please just imagine it’s straight. Or squint – that helps.

Snowflake Showcase Joy Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Snowflake Showcase Joy Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Coastal Cabana CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″

Stamped with the Snow it Glistening stamp set:

  • sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto the Whisper White CS layer

Die cut using the Snowfall Thinlits:

  • largest snowflake cut from a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • middle size snowflake cut from a scrap of Coastal Cabana CS
  • smallest snowflake cut from a scrap of Whisper White CS

Colored using a Blends Marker:

  • 6 Pearl Basic Jewels in Light Bermuda Bay
  • NOTE: It’s easiest to color the pearls while they are still on the sheet they come on. Also be careful when you color them so you don’t damage the brush tip of your Blends Marker.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Coastal Cabana CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • whisper white CS layer glued onto the Coastal Cabana CS Layer
  • largest snowflake glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Coastal Cabana snowflake glued onto the largest snowflake
  • smallest snowflake glued onto the Coastal Cabana snowflake
  • Coastal Cabana Glitter dot applied to the center of the smallest snowflake

I knew I wanted to use the Making Christmas Bright stamp set (look for another card I made with it tomorrow) and today’s card was born. Well, created, not born.
