Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Quick Christmas Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been a beautiful Autumn like weekend here in NJ.

I have a quick Christmas card today for you that you can reproduce multiple of really easily. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly QAE 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper and Red & White Glimmer Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly QAE 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to a Basic White mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a panel of White Glimmer Paper. Using my Holly Berry Dies, I cut the holly frame from a panel of White Glimmer Paper. I adhered the die cut frame to the card front.

On a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the White Glimmer Paper frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the solid berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink on the top corner of the panel. I stamped the details berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink over the Real Red image. I stamped the small, detailed holly image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink next to the berry image. I stamped the solid holly image in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the detailed image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set and the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Brushed Metallic Paper using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. For anyone that watched my video and wanted the Snowflakes, check out my Instagram Reel. I made one with the snowflake embossing folder. I cut a panel of Lights Aglow DSP on the right side in the center at the 2 5/8″, I cut in 2″. I scored from the bottom right corner to the 2″ mark and from the top right corner to the 2″ mark.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I folded the 2 corners on the score lines. I adhered the folded DSP panel to the Brushed Metallic embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the banner image from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the banner out using the Christmas Banner Dies. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

From panels of Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Brushed Metallic cardstocks, I cut the berries, branches, pine boughs and sprigs using the Christmas Banner Dies. I arranged the die cut pieces under the banner the way I liked them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Festive Pearls to the banner.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine bough and sprig images from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope your week has started well. I’ve got a busy one ahead of me. Today is my only day off and I’ll be working the next 6 days straight. Maybe I’ll be surprised, and they won’t schedule me for Sunday.

Today’s card is another one that we made at our quarterly team meeting a couple weeks ago. This one was designed by another one of our team members Darryl Robbins. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today. This was the first time I’ve made a Slimline card and I think it came out pretty good since I didn’t know what I was doing.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the layered panel to the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the 1 7/8″ section of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Holly Berry Dies, I cut the holly frame die from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the holly frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment inside the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the smaller holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the leaves out using the Holly Berry Dies. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut them out with the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the berries over the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

For the inside. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry image by the holly leaves in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the 2 ends on an angle using my Paper Snips. I adhered a piece of the Natural 1/2″ Woven Ribbon on the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored 2 of the Textural Elements using the Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Textural Elements on either side of the panel where I wanted the easel to stand using Glue Dots on the berry parts.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Yesterday was such a rainy day here, but we needed it. I went up to my team leaders for our quarterly meeting, which is always so much fun. We stamped 3 different cards using the same set, got to chat a bit and see all the team member from all over the US via Zoom. Here is one of the cards we made yesterday. This one was designed by Akiko Sudano and I just LOVE it. If you have a lot of cards to make to send out this Christmas season, this is a perfect one that can be duplicated very easily.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set to make my card today using just Stamps, Ink and Paper. I did add a little embellishment too.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the solid berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set on the bottom left corner in Real Red Ink. I stamped the detailed berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink over the solid stamped image. I stamped the solid berry image on a piece of Masking Paper and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I covered the berries with the Masking Paper. I stamped the large, detailed holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the solid holly leaf image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the detailed image. I stamped the smaller holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink along the side of the panel. I stamped the smaller solid holly leaf image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the detailed image.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season To Remember

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope your week has started out great. I’ll be taking Coraline today for her last puppy shots YAY!! Now she’ll be able to play with other dogs and socialize with everyone.

I have a Christmas card for you today. I’m trying to get at least 1 done a week for now. Once we get a little closer I’ll start getting more done. I just can’t get into making them yet with it being in the upper 80’s & 90’s I’m just not feeling it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #482.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 6 strips of cardstock (Evening Evergreen, Real Red and Soft Succulent) to a Painted Christmas DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, I stamped the pine bough image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered 2 sets of 3 pine boughs together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I colored 2 of the Textural Elements using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the pine boughs under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Textural Elements on top of the pine boughs using Glue Dots. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine bough image from the Christmas Season stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the stem image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink and the berry image in Real Red Ink on top of the stem. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine bough images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the berry stem image in Crumb Cake and the berry image in Real Red Inks. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working on Sunday, but I have Saturday off this weekend.

I have a quick fun fold for you today, but no video to go with it. I had completely forgot that I was going to New York City on Wednesday with my daughter and husband to see a play. We had a beautiful day, the weather was perfect for our long walks. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Tree Trimming Dies (available 9-1-22) for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Lights Aglow DSP to the front of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Wintry 3d Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the detail tree image from Trimming The Tree stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the first image. I stamped the garland/light image from Trimming The Tree stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink over the tree image. I cut the tree out using the Tree Trimming Dies that will be available starting September 1. I adhered the tree to the embossed die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the Tree Trimming Dies, I cut a star from a scrap of Gold Foil Paper and adhered it above the tree using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders and set it using the Heat Tool. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it next to the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a small strip of the Lights Aglow DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered a panel of the Lights Aglow DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
