Use the Delightful Dijon ink to make gold bells with the Seasonal Bells stamp set. The gold bells are beautiful with the Christmas Pines boughs for this Christmas card. Use the coordinating Bell Punch to easily cut out the beautiful bells.
Instead of layering the Christmas Pines images, stamp them out separately to get varied branches. You will have a nice full bunch of pine boughs for your card.
Stamping Tip: Use the Clear Wink Of Stella Marker to add a shimmer to the bells. I love the Clear Wink Of Stella and find so many ways to use it!
Silver and Navy are two of my favorite colors for Christmas and cards with stars. I love the elegant look of the navy background for the silver foil star from the Star Of Light stamps and Starlight dies. This is actually a fairly easy card. And I even added a bit of Clear Wink Of Stella over the white stars.
I layered two foil stars to create the focal star. I like how the second star adds detail to the main star. The little stars are stamped in navy onto white card stock and cut out. There is a bit of Clear Wink Of Stella over the small stars too.
Stamping Tip: Cut out the center of the foil paper mat so you can use it for a different project. This is a great way to get more out of your paper supply.
They are so cute! The penguin and snowman from the Snow Place stamp set. Add the Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder and you have the perfect winter card. I love the “Let It Snow” embossed in the red glitter. The Real Red Embossing Glitter is now available in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.
The Soft Sky background is created with one of the Seasonal Decorative Masks, Soft Sky ink, and sponge daubers. With the sponge daubers, it is easy to sponge just the portion behind the penguin and snowman. It is a nice way to add a bit of color to the card. Have you tried the Seasonal Decorative Masks yet?
There are coordinating Snow Friends Framelit dies so you don’t have to fussy cut the pieces. There are dies for most images so you have many options.
The Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder is perfect for Christmas stamping! The sentiment from the Christmas Pines set is stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with the Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder, and heat set. I love the sparkle it adds to this card.
That beautiful background is from the Fancy Frost Specialty paper which comes already embossed. All I had to do was sponge the Emerald Envy ink over the piece of card stock, and the pattern pops up. A nice background for this card.
You can easily add a bit of pattern with the banners cut from the Presents & Pinecones patterned paper. The ends of the 2″ and 1″ wide papers are cut with the Triple Banner Punch. That punch is on my desk and used all the time. It makes notched ends of banners so easy to create.
Just leave them in! Sometimes it works best not to remove the negative pieces of a die cut shape. I left most of the cut card stock in this Mint Macaron swirly shape from the Swirly Scribbles Framelits set. I like how the cuts add detail, but keep the image solid. It would be much harder to see the swirl shape with all the card stock removed.
I used the Seasonal Decorative Masks to add the light Mint Macaron detail to the Very Vanilla card front. I just lightly sponged over the mask and not always evenly. It was a very quick way to add the background. In fact, this entire card came together very quickly with the punched out acorns and the Petals & Paisleys Patterned Paper.
The patterns included with the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Decorative Masks are wonderful. I love how easy it is to use one of the spritzers to get a subtle background pattern. I spritzed over one the masks with some of the Delightful Dijon ink refill mixed with some rubbing alcohol.
You can make your background a bit darker by using more ink refill and lighter by using a bit less. I mix the ink refill with the higher concentrated rubbing alcohol because that will dry more quickly. This background technique is so quick and effective.
Do you want to create quick and easy favors for your Halloween party? Use the Halloween Night Designer Series Paper to create these fun Halloween sour cream favors. Easily make the favor from a piece of paper with some strong tape, and then all you have to do is decorate. I even made ghosts with the Paisley Framelits.
