Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

I have a quick Christmas card for you today. I used this design for my class last week, but they used the other side of the DSP and a different stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the ornaments in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a length of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the top of the panel and adhered it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly and berry image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies and adhered them to the top of the ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times across the top of the panel. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the center top of the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Hope you had a productive one and are ready for the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I believe I will be working both days.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold card today.

I started by scoring a full panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. With the 8 1/2″ side on the bottom of the trimmer I scored at 4 1/4″. I turned the cardstock so the 11″ side was on the bottom of the trimmer and I scored at 5 1/2″. I took my score blade out of my trimmer and lined up the corners with the cutting indent and cut the panel from corner to corner making sure to go through the center mark on the cardstock. This will give you 2 card bases. I folded the top triangle down and the side triangle over. I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I cut a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec. DSP from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I adhered one of the triangles of the Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP to one of the Blushing Bride triangles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the front of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another panel of Blushing Bride cardstock, which I adhered an Adhesive Sheet to the back, I cut multiple garland dies using the Christmas Tree Dies. I adhered them to the other Blushing Bride triangle to fill in most of the spaces and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to the other front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the ornament and holly images from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a small panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock, which I cut a scalloped edge using the Penned Flower Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the ornaments to either side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the strings. I adhered the holly on top of each set of ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the top of only one side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP to the envelope flap
