Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone go out shopping on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday? I stayed home Friday and worked Saturday and Sunday. Saturday we were extra busy and the day flew by. Sunday not as much since it wasn’t a very nice day.

I’ve been MIA for a bit and only posting here and there. I’m hoping to be back to my regular schedule and back on track with my blogging. As most of you know I had Covid last month and I’m still suffering a bit from it. Most days when I get home from work I have absolutely no energy to even make dinner. I’m getting a little better and hopefully the worst is past. Now I just have to stay healthy for the rest of the winter. Today’s card is a traditional red and green one that is also pretty quick to make. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set and the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 2

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Real Red Glimmer paper from the Real Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper pack using the largest tag die from the Designer Tags Dies. I cut the inside of the tag using the rose die from the Designer Tags Dies. I adhered the glimmer tag to a panel of Shimmery White Paper. I cut the bottom of the tag so that only the top section had the spot for ribbon. I threaded a piece of Silver Metallic Edge 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon through the tag and tied a knot. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut both ends of the strip on an angle using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot. I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I made a stencil using the rose die from the Designer Tag Dies from a panel of cardstock. I placed the stencil on the bottom of the panel and used my Blending Brush to add Real Red Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I used the stencil I made from the Designer Tags Dies with my Blending Brush and Real Red Ink to color the rose on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Santa Express Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
