Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty Yule CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? We had a rainy day yesterday, but today is sunny, cold and windy. I’m looking forward to our quarterly ‘In-Person” team meeting today virtually. I always have so much fun at our meetings getting together with my team members, talking and laughing. Hopefully by the next meeting we will be able to really meet in person again.

Just when I thought I was done with my Christmas cards, my aunt asked to make 7 special cards for her. She said she would rather buy them from me than the store, which I was honored about. I used the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set for today’s.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #485. Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #622. Here are their colors.

I also played along with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #520. Here is their theme.

I started by embossing panels of Cherry Cobbler and Real Red cardstock using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder and adhering them to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in the center of the embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the adorable deer from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the end into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot on the end overlapping the artwork.

I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside yet. This one is for her Great Grandson and I need to see what she wants. I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set on the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope. I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the ‘Tis The Season DSP to the envelope flap.

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

  1. Very cute, Karen – love your collection of reds for the background – what a great idea! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!


  2. Fun card, Karen! Love how you used the different papers and embossing on the three vertical panels. It’s a great technique for a background when your reindeer is your central feature. Thank you for sharing your creativity and card with us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!!! -Donna

  3. Absolutely ADORABLE! I love how you used different DSPs for the background, too. adds texture but keeping to the same color means that your adorable character remains front and center. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
