Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tidings With a Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started?  I hope everyone is doing well and finishing up all your cards to get in the mail early.  I’m having a class tonight and the ladies will be making a few more Christmas cards to add to their stash.  They may even be making this one.  Before my class though I will be gong in for surgery.  I’ve had trigger finger in both of my hands and I just couldn’t stand the pain anymore or the locking of my fingers.  I am having both hands operated on at the same time, I must be nuts.  I was told that I am to use my hands immediately, so I figured why not have a class.  The first thing my daughter said when I told her I was having surgery was ” so you’ll be ok to bake cookies this year then right?”.  You can see where her priorities are, lol.

So today I have a card that looks more involved than it really is.  Once you get the couple pieces cut out, it goes together really quick.  I was very hesitant about getting the Toile Tiding Designer Series Paper, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it.  It’s only 2 colors + Very Vanilla, Garden Green on one side and Real Red on the other.  I’m so happy I bought it, I really love the designs on this paper.  Once again I was inspired by one of my team members, Akiko, who made this card for our weekly blog hop a couple weeks ago.  Here is her card.  Here’s my take on it.

I started by cutting a circle in a Very Vanilla card front using the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  As in my description, I have a little sneak peek of something coming January 3, 2020 in the new Mini Catalog (formally known as the occasions catalog).  I embossed the Very Vanilla panel using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, isn’t it just gorgeous.  Using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock.  I used the 2nd largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the inside of the scallop circle to make a frame.  I adhered the scallop frame to the Very Vanilla card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Toile Tidings DSP using the largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies making sure to get the image I wanted in the circle.  I adhered the Toile Tidings DSP circle behind the Very Vanilla panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies. I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set on either side of the panel in Garden Green Ink.  I colored the berries on the branches in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the berries on the branch in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered a panel of the Toile Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
