Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Swirl Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’ll be working all day both days this weekend.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Card Class this past week. I usually have my classes the 1st Tuesday of the month, but with being sick I had to postpone it. I’ve been wanting to make one of these cards and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share with the ladies. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Swirl 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree Swirl 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and I flicked ink all over the Basic White card front panel to give it a very light and subtle background. I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut 6 different size circles using my Layering Circles Dies from 6 different patterns of Boughs of Holly DSP. I cut all the circles in half using my Paper Trimmer. I layered the circles from largest to smallest adhering them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue lining up the 3 ends together.

I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the card front. I adhered the layered card front to the Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker, I flicked color all over the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a thin strip of Boughs of Holly DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

DOUBLE CREATIVE STAMPING DESIGNS REWARDS ENDS TODAY!!!

It’s my birthday week so I decided to give my customers a gift. Any orders over $50 starting today, Tuesday November 15th – Saturday November 19th, I’m going to give you Double Creatives Stamping Designs Rewards. If you place and order of $50 you’ll receive 2 rewards, $100 you’ll receive 4 rewards, $150 you’ll receive 6 rewards etc. I love giving gifts so this is my little gift to you. Don’t forget for any orders under $150 you MUST use my Current Host Code 7UP2RPAX in order to get double rewards and 1 free gift from me valued up to $10.

*********************************************************************************************************

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.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photos are Happy Thanksgiving or Merry Christmas.  You get to pick which photo you want to work with, 184a or 184b. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Banners For You CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper and the Snowflake Vellum Specialty Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I went with inspiration photo 184b, Merry Christmas and was inspired by the pine tree, snowflakes and colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #184a or 184b.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Banners For You CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to an Old Olive card base. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Vellum paper over the pine tree paper using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal just under where the sentiment was going to go.

Stampin' Up! Banners For You CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the banner image from Christmas Banners stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using my Christmas Banners Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Old Olive Ink.

Stampin' Up! Banners For You CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered some of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals over the trim. I added a few Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to the banner.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Very Best Occasions stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine bough image from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat then to the inside of the Old Olive card base.

I masked the berries using a Post-It note that I had stamped and fussy cut the berries on. I stamped the small holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on either side of the berries. I adhered the sentiment to the matted DSP panel.

Stampin’ Up Cottage Wreaths Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I hope you were able to catch all or some of our Facebook Live videos yesterday. I was able to catch all of them and I thought they were great. A lot of great ideas. If you joined our World Card Making Day Facebook page, the videos will be up until Facebook decides that we can’t keep them, so you can go back and watch them over and over. If you haven’t joined yet, you can still join. We are going to allow people in for a few more days.

Today’s card is the one I made on the Facebook Live yesterday. If you caught me live or watched the replay, thank you. If you want to watch and stamp along, the measurements are listed below. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreath Bundle and the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is the template as promised for cutting the card base.

I started by cutting and folding the card base as in the image above. I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Gray Granite Ink lightly to the embossed panel. I adhered the embossed panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of Boughs of Holly DSP to either side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the wreath I used the Baby Wipe Technique. I folded a baby wipe in quarters. Using my Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Ink Refills, I added drops of ink on the baby wipe. I inked up the wreath image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set from the baby wipe and stamped a Basic White panel. I cut the wreath out using the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using Linen Thread and added it to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I added some of the Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to the wreath. I added a couple Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the wreath image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set on a Basic White panel, using the ink from the baby wipe, stamping it off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Gray Granite Ink inside the wreath. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wreath image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamps et in Gray Granite Ink inside the wreath. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. If you watch this on my YouTube channel, please remember to subscribe so that you will get notified when a new video goes live. I’m hoping to start doing YouTube lives soon, thanks to all that have subscribed. Happy Stamping!!

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly QAE 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly QAE 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly QAE 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

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! Leaves of Holly QAE 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the berry and holly images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

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 Slimline 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Slimline Envelope. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and the berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front.

I adhered the Holly leaves to the panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the berries to the bottom of the leaves using Glue Dots. I snuck the pine boughs under the holly leaves adhering them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the panel. I adhered the collage panel to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.  

These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you and your customers will save 10% off the retail price. 

Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more papercrafting fun!
