Stampin’ Up Simply Elegant Pine Woods Dies

Todays card is simple and elegant and not a Christmas card, although it could be. :O) All that means is ~ change the sentiment to make it what you want. I’ve paired Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP on the silver side and the gorgeous Pine Woods Dies together to make this card. This just could be a favorite.

Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP + Pine Woods Dies – #1

Metallic papers are very difficult to photograph as the light bounces everywhere. But I think this shows up fairly well. Another favorite die are the Stitched Rectangles Dies – and I used the third largest to die cut the Whisper White card stock. Actually, I die cut the tree and the rectangle at the same time and felt rather smug and efficient about it 🙂 Stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight using the Freezin’ Fun stamp set. Here’s where you can make it a Christmas/ Holiday card. I added three soft -colored Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes. Put dimensionals on the back side and set aside.

The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2. Feels like Frost 6×6 DSP is cut 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered directly to the card base with liquid glue. I chose this particular design because it looks like snowflakes to me. Now adhere that white pine tree panel and the card front is done.

For the inside, I had a ‘frame’ in Silver Foil already cut in my stash – same size as the Rectangle Stitched Die on the front. I adhered that to the inside of the card with a very thin line of liquid glue. I had a Silver Foil scrap and die cut the really cute tree – also from the Pine Woods Dies, and adhered it with liquid glue and the card was complete.

Pine Woods Dies ~ inside, #2

For the envelope, I adhered the very same Feels Like Frost DSP to the envelope flap with liquid glue. Then on the front of the envelope I stamped this adorable tree from the In The Pines stamp set in Misty Midnight. In the Pines stamp set coordinates with the Pine Woods Dies and is just a stunning set. Highly recommend it by the way…

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets & Cat Punch Fun Fold

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Today shares another fun fold ~ actually the same fold as yesterday but created differently. And the focus is the Playful Pets DSP. I had an order for the loss of a kitty and this is what I did.

Playful Pets & Cat Punch Fun Fold

I love the way the punched cat sits nearly off the card front – and this kind of fun fold allows that to perfection. And here’s the how-to…

  • Cut a piece of Soft Suede card stock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and score at 4 1/4
  • On the upper half, or front half, trim off 1″ from each end, just to the score line. This gives the full card base and all that left to do is decorate it 😊
  • The card front is now only 3 1/2 x 4 1/4: cut a panel of Real Red card stock 3 3/8 x 4 1/8 and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of the Playful Pets DSP 3 1/4 x 4 and adhere with liquid glue
  • Using the sweet Cat Punch and Basic Black card stock, punch a cat. Adhere with dimensionals to the edge of the front flap.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2″ Whisper White card stock strip. Trim end using the Banners Pick-a-Punch. Adhere this with liquid glue to a 5/8″ Real Red card stock strip. Adhere the sentiment strip to the card front with liquid glue.
  • The heart for the cat…. with a 1/2″ strip of Real Red card stock, and the Detailed Hearts Die, place the strip at the top of this beautiful die and run it through the Cut & Emboss machine. Choose one of the many hearts and attach to the cat with a mere dot of glue. And your card front is done!

For the inside – lots of card cuts and no stamping…

Playful Pets – card inside #2

Love this inside ~ for me, the hearts make it. The inside is a full 5 1/2 width and I cut lots of panels as a ‘step up’ from yesterdays same fun fold.

  • Cut two strips of Real Red card stock 7/8 x 4 1/8 and one @ 3 3/8 x 4 1/8
  • Cut two strips of Playful Pets DSP 3/4 x 4. Adhere to the Real Red strips with liquid glue and then to the card base at each end with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the larger Real Red panel to the card inside with liquid glue
  • Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock 3 1/4 x 4. Adhere the heart die cuts that remain from cutting the heart for the cat. I trimmed mine apart and cut back some of what felt unnecessary edges to get the look I wanted. Adhere with mere dots of liquid glue to the Whisper White panel, then to the inside of the card and voila!

For the envelope… cut a strip of coordinating Playful Pets DSP 2 1/4 x 6, adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim. Stamp the cat feet (this is a non SU! product that I have kept from years of crafting) in Tuxedo Black ink..

Playful Pets & Cast Punch Fun Fold

The person who ordered this sympathy for a cat loss, loved it… and I do too. Would like to know what you think. The product list is below for your ease of ordering. As a thank you to those who use me as their demonstrator, I offer a SU! item of choice valued at $10 when their order is between $50-$150. Please use my CURRENT HOST CODE: XS4MSSFN through Nov 18.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Fun Fold

Hello! It’s MONDAY, start of a new week – woohoo! Special plans/ opportunities/ or challenges set for yourself? I’m excited about sharing today’s project with you. I have created other Poinsettia Petals cards but not with watercolor. And that’s what I have done for today – watercolor… One of the things I have learned in this card making process, is it doesn’t have to be complicated to be beautiful. This card is not complicated, a bit time consuming maybe, but easy to break up into portions to keep the process moving along. I don’t do watercoloring nearly often enough and maybe this creation will get me back to it – as I enjoyed it quite a lot. Here’s my card…

Poinsettias Fun Fold – #1

Isn’t this pretty? I love the layers and the In Good Taste DSP creates a wonderfully simple background to show off this flower.

Process & Details…

  • First we stamp the three poinsettia petals & at least three holly leaves using Versamark ink on the Watercolor Paper – yep, Poinsettia Petals stamp set. And yes, do clean the paper by swiping it with the embossing buddy first. Swish in Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with your heat gun.
  • Watercolor using the new Water Painters: Cherry Cobbler ink & Real Red ink for the poinsettia petals; Old Olive ink and Garden Green ink for the holly leaves. I like to stamp my ink pad on an acrylic block and using my Water Painter add a bit of water, creating the depth of color I want. Begin with the lighter shade and add the darker. My poinsettias/ leaves turned out a bit lighter than I like but they are still beautiful. Set aside to dry.
  • Cut Crumb Cake card stock for the card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cover with In Good Taste DSP 4 x 5 1/4 using liquid glue.
  • Cut another Crumb cake panel 3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scoring at 4 1/4. Adhere to the center of the card base panel with liquid glue. Adhere another panel of In Good Taste DSP to this folded front panel 3 1/4 x 4.
  • The watercolored Poinsettia Petals pieces should all be dry now, so die cut those with the Poinsetttia Dies.
  • Die cut at least three berry sprigs from the Poinsettia Dies from Brushed Metallic Paper in Gold.
  • Curl the poinsettia petals with a bone folder (the watercolor paper allows this beautifully) and put together with dimensionals. Adhere the beautiful Beaded Pearls element to the center.
  • Adhere this poinsettia to the card front with liquid glue and add the holly leaves & berry die cuts to suit you. Yes, I did curl the leaves also, and I pulled up the berries a bit once dry. I love this three-dimensional look!
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink to a strip of Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. The sentiment comes from this wonderful Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Curl with the bone folder so the center is raised and each end as well. Double the dimensionals for the center of the sentiment and adherer with liquid glue just before the end curl and the card front is done!
  • Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock 3 1/4 x 4, stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink – again with a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Stamp the pine bow in Garden Green ink – and yes, it is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.
  • Adhere another panel of In Good Taste DSP (2 1/4 x 6) to the envelope flap and trim to fit. Stamp the pine bow over it in Garden Green ink. Also stamp the pine bow on the envelope front.

And here’s another photo as well

Poinsettia Petals Fun Fold #4

What a fun card! I MUST get back to doing more watercoloring… I really enjoy making Christmas cards, but soon I must stop ~ too many, too many… Guess I can resort to doing some fun tags for Christmas – yes! Perhaps that’s what I’ll do :O)

You will find the product list below. Please feel free to ask questions, either via this post or my email… tlsbrightspot@gmail.com. Thanks for being a customer! As a thank you I offer with a $50 – $150 purchase a SU! item valued at $10 – your choice of item! Please use my current HOST CODE XS4MSSFN when ordering now through Nov 18 to receive your free item.

Stampin’ Up! Curvy Thinking of You

Yesterday I spoke about this Curvy bundle, how it’s available now and will be in the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and decided to feature it today with a fun twist to it. I have used two beautiful Designer Series Papers: In Good Taste and the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP.

Curvy Thinking of You #1

I really like the In Good Taste DSP as the soft background for this card. And it definitely shows off the Curvy Dies. Curvy Dies were used to cut out not only the curves of the background, but that sweet ‘spray’, the two long leaf branches and the bird. OK, guess it’s time for a bit more detail…

  • the card base is Smokey Slate 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • the In Good Taste DSP layer is 4 x 5 1/4; cut as shown using one of the Curvy Dies & adhered with liquid glue
  • Using two Layering Ovals Dies, I cut the window frame from Whisper White card stock. I then die cut another oval from Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP and adhered it with liquid glue to the back of the frame
  • Stamp the bird on Whisper White card stock using the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color it using the Stampin Blends Seaside Spray and Flirty Flamingo. Isn’t it the sweetest? Die cut the bird with one of the Curvy Dies.
  • Stamp the floral ‘spray’ on Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink – this also comes as part of the Quite Curvy stamp set. Color it using the light & dark Just Jade Stampin Blends and the Rococco Rose Marker. Die cut using the Curvy Dies.
  • Die cut two leaf branches using the Curvy Dies: one in Soft Sea Foam & another in Pretty Peacock. Adhere the leaf branches to the floral spray with liquid glue, then adhere this to the window frame with liquid glue and dimensionals at each end of the floral spray for support.
  • Adhere the completed window frame to the front of the card with dimensionals. Adhere the bird with a mini dimensional and the card front is complete.

For the inside & the envelope…

  • On a 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White card stock, stamp the sentiment in Smokey Slate ink using the Quite Curvy stamp set.
  • Stamp the small leaf spray in Just Jade ink
  • Adhere the panel to the Smokey Slate card base and the card is done.
  • Adhere a panel of the same In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap with liquid glue & trim to fit.
  • Stamp the sweet bird on both the envelope flap and the front of the envelope: color using Stampin Blends Seaside Spray & Flirty Flamingo.

The product list for todays project may be found below. Thanks for being a customer! As a thank you I offer with a $50 – $150 purchase a SU! item valued at $10 – your choice of item!

Stampin! Dandy Garden Memories & More

Hello again! If you have been reading my ‘publication’, you know that Stampin’ Up! will be premiering a new catalog Jan 5. As a demonstrator it is a privilege to order particular items from that catalog. Today I am sharing a few cards that I made yesterday using the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack AND the coordinating Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.

The first card really shows off the Cards & Envelopes… The colorful daisy scene on the front is one of the ‘cards’ in the Card Pack. I simply mounted said card on a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock using liquid glue, wrapped some of the Braided linen Thread (in Mossy Meadow of course) around it, put it on dimensionals and added it to the center of the card front. In the card pack are these delightful stickers: I added the word ‘celebrate’ and if you look closely, you will also see a bumblebee sticker. :o) Depending on what I stamp on the inside (which I haven’t just yet) will determine if it says birthday or you or words of congratulations. I love that it’s ready for a final touch.

from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – #1

Card #2 uses two more panels from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack: the large green one and the smaller panel too. Here I mounted the smaller card on a panel of Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue, used a punch to make notches on each side and wound Linen Thread twice around the panel and tied a bow. I added the sticker ‘Thinking of you’, put dimensionals on the back of the panel and voila. This one could easily be a sympathy card. Oh, the large green floral panel was adhered to a Dandy Garden Card (with liquid glue) from the cards & envelopes.

from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – #2

Card #3 uses two more panels from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack: the larger darker panel is adhered with liquid glue to a Dandy Garden Card; the smaller panel was trimmed a bit, going around the sweet floral image on the left and stamped with a sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set (in Tuxedo Black Memento ink). I die cut a panel of Whisper White card stock using the Ornate layers Dies. I adhered this beauty with liquid glue to the large yellow panel then added the smaller panel with dimensionals. I punched a dragonfly from a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP using the Dragonfly Punch, popped it on a mini dimensional and voila – another card!

from the Dandsy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, Dragonfly Punch, & Dragonfly Stamp Set + Ornate Layers Dies – #3

And card #4… a card for encouragement or.. thank you. This card uses another floral green panel from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, layered on a Dandy Garden Card (from cards & envelopes). I die cut a panel from Whisper White card stock using the Rectangle Stitched Dies. To that I added the smaller card from the card pack using liquid glue; adhered the yellow sticker from the card pack and stamped a sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set. I added another floral sticker for fun. Then I wrapped a Bumblebee 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon around the end and tied a knot. This panel was adhered with liquid glue to the card front and bam – another card. (I’m probably going to add a cute Ladybug Trinket to this card, cuz it needs it!)

from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – #4

Stampin’ Up! has what they call a Dandy Garden Suite ~ and this suite has several products in it: the Dragonfly Garden stamp set & coordinating Dragonfly Punch, the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Ladybug Trinkets, Braided Linen Thread in Mossy Meadow, another stamp & die set I haven’t opened yet (Garden Wishes stamp set & Dandy Wishes Dies), Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP AND two sheets of stunningly glorious Dandy Laser-Cut Paper.

So why promote the suite? 10% off when purchased as a suite in lieu of purchasing individually! How is that for a reason?! Below are pictures of these products – but pictures do not give them beauty justice, just so ya know.

The Dandy Garden Suite will be available to purchase Jan 5, 2021. A Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog will be sent or hand delivered to you (if you have been a customer during the last year) in early December. In that package will also be a Sale-A-Bration catalog which will feature products that are a bonus with every product purchase of $50 or $100. Those will be available only Jan-Feb. If you have been used to Sale-A-Bration running a longer period, it is changing to run only two months.

Thanks for being a customer! As a thank you I offer with a $50 – $150 purchase a SU! item valued at $10 – your choice of item! Please use my current HOST CODE XS4MSSFN when ordering now through Nov 18 to receive your free item. Besides the Dandy Garden Suite, other products used in todays project may be found below. Please let me know if I may assist you in some way.

Another coordinated product that is available RIGHT NOW is the Curvy Celebrations products. Curvy Christmas stamp set & Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP will only be available to the end of the year, while the Quite Curvy Bundle will be in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog – but all of it is AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE NOW in the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle seen below.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery

Hello folks… Stampin’ Up is readying for a new catalog ~ the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and the Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration. Today’s project features Art Gallery stamp set & coordinating dies, Floral Gallery Dies. Here’s a picture of both.

This is a two-step stamp set as you might realize from the florals at the top of the set. And I’ll confess, I haven’t played with the floral stamps – yet… I had an in-person class yesterday and my new products arrived l-a-t-e the night before. Sooo – what I DID DO is create this fun card using the large sentiment in the dies.

Floral Gallery Dies #1

I also used two fun Designer Series Papers that will be free with a $50 purchase during Jan-Feb. (more on that later) The first is Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP – the Blackberry Bliss & Bermuda papers you see here. And notice how they fade to lighter shade? That’s the ombre 😏 The floral paper is called Flower & Field DSP, again free with a $50 purchased in Jan-Feb.

OK, enough about the papers – the sentiment comes from the Art
Gallery stamp set
and that fun Granny Apple Green die cut is also from this set of the Floral Gallery Dies. Aren’t those edges fun? They look as though they came from a movie ticket or something. And here’s what is left after the sentiment is die cut… which of course can be used on another card.

Floral Gallery Dies #2

Let’s talk the new catalogs for a minute – the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration catalogs will be available for you to see in early December with ordering beginning Jan 3. If you have been a customer of mine this past year I will be sending (or giving if you are local) those catalogs as soon as I am able to get them. And just for clarity… the Sale-a-bration catalog shows free products available with purchases of $50 and $100, so two levels of free items. And these are available Jan-Feb only. Hope that helps.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder

Hello there! Today’s card features the extra gorgeous So Many Snowflakes Dies and I paired it with Snow Wonder stamp set for the sentiment on the front. What was extra fun was using the new SU! Blending Brushes ~ they are wonderful!!! And… they come in a 3-pack – eeeee. For some reason I cannot get my computer to allow me to share a photo of the brushes – but they are awesome… and will be available in the upcoming Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.

Now – to the card… here’s a sneak peek…

So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #1

The how to :O)…

  • Die cut the largest snowflake from Whisper White card stock using the So Many Snowflakes Dies
  • Using that panel and one of the new Blending Brushes, tap the brush in Balmy Blue ink and blend the color, creating a shadow of snowflakes on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White card stock. Continue to cover, moving the snowflake ‘stencil’ around so there are several shadows on the panel. It should look something like this. Notice there are varying shades of the Balmy Blue ink.
So Many Snowflake Dies ‘stenciled’ panel #2
  • Cut an Adhesive Sheet to 4 x 5 1/4, peel the backing and adhere to a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock
  • Die cut several snowflakes of varying sizes using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Whisper White card stock with the Adhesive Sheet on it.
  • Remove the backing on the die cut snowflakes one at a time as you lay them on the ‘shadowed’ card front
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Snow Wonder stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a 1 x 4 strip of Whisper White
  • Adhere this to a 1 1/4 x 4 strip of Balmy Blue card stock
  • Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front using dimensionals
  • Die cut yet another snowflake, this time from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – love this paper! Adhere to the sentiment panel with a couple of dots of liquid glue.
  • Add some glittery Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to several of the snowflakes
  • Adhere this panel to the Balmy Blue card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) and the card front is done.
So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #3

The inside & the envelope…

You can see in the photo above and below that I used one of the die cut ‘outlines’ as a stencil, the Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink. I did this on the envelope front and on the envelope flap. I also did it on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White for the inside of the card. Then I adhered one of the leftover die cut snowflakes that had adhesive on the back and placed it over one of the snowflakes stenciled on the panel. I liked the effect this created. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card base and voila…

The product list may be found below… Remember when shopping with me, if your purchase is between $50- $150, use my CURRENT HOST CODE…XS4MSSFN to receive a free SU! gift from me valued at $10!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly

Hello again! Today’s card is another Christmas card. Somehow I can’t quit making them ~ it’s one of my favorite times of year. So, here we go… this was a CASE of a card made by Amy Koenders.

Joyful Holly ~ #1

Isn’t this cheerful? Here are the details…

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP 3 3/4 x 5. I adhered mine to the far left for a bit of a different look – yep, liquid glue is my ‘go to’.
  • Cut a banner in Garden Green card stock 1 5/8 x 5 and punch a banner end with the Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue
  • Cut another length, this time in Whisper White 2 x 5. Stamp the images using the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink. Stamp the inner pattern for the holly in Garden Green ink as well. Stamp the berries in Real Red ink. Trim the end using the same Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue.
  • Cut another strip, this time in Pear Pizzazz card stock 1 x 3 1/2. Trim both ends with the very fun Banner Pick a Punch. Adhere with liquid glue.
  • Using the 2″ Circle Punch and Shaded Spruce card stock, punch a circle :O)
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of Whisper White. Punch it out using the Everyday Label Punch. Adhere this to the circle with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the circle & sentiment to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Add a fun bow using the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon. This adds a nice sparkle to the card.
  • Add the red elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and your card front is done.

For the inside…

Joyful Holly inside – #2

I love the simplicity of the inside of this card. It uses the same stamp as the front, but no filler stamp – just the outline – and gives the holly branch a totally different look.

  • Stamp the outline image of the holly using the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp the sentiment, also from the Joyful Holly stamp set in
    Garden green ink
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with liquid glue and your card is complete. YAY!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas

Today’s post is all about Christmas using the Peaceful Boughs stamp set with coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies. I couldn’t help it – there are two cards for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop using the Christmas/ Holiday theme. I think you will find some wonderful inspiration on this hop. Enjoy…

My first card is made using the Wonder of The Season MEMORIES & MORE CARDS & ENVELOPES as my card base.

It is so shiny, it was really difficult to get a good photo…

  • Pear Pizzazz card stock is the bottom layer cut to 3 1/8 x 4 1/8 (cut 2 – one for inside) + scraps for the boughs.
  • Red Foil Sheets is next and cut 3 x 4. Adhere to the Pear Pizzazz with liquid glue
  • Die cut two single pine boughs from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.
  • Die cut one triple bough from Shaded Spruce card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies
  • Die cut two pine cones from either Soft Suede card stock or Early Espresso card stock. (The card stock in the photo is a retired color)
  • Adhere the pine boughs to the Red Foil layer with liquid glue. Adhere the pine cones with dimensionals.
  • Add the Linen Thread & Gold Cord bow with a glue dot to the pine cones
  • Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink using the Toile Christmas stamp set. Die cut with the Christmas Cardinal Dies that coordinate with Toile Christmas stamp set.
  • Adhere the sentiment banner with dimensionals to the Red Foil layer.
  • Adhere this completed layer to the card front with dimensionals.

for the inside…

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White cut 3 x 4
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel to Pear Pizzazz card stock cut 3 1/8 x 4 1/8
  • Adhere this completed panel to the inside of the card and voila! the card is complete…

The second card uses the Beautiful Boughs Dies, Painted Labels Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • The embossed layer is Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 using the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder and adhered with liquid glue to the card base
  • Cut Shaded Spruce card stock 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • Cut Neutrals DSP (Soft Suede) 3 x 3. Adhere to the Shaded Spruce panel with liquid glue.
  • Die cut two single boughs using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and Pear Pizzazz card stock
  • Die cut one triple bough using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and Shaded Spruce card stock
  • Adhere the boughs to the DSP panel with liquid glue
  • Die cut a single pine cone using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from Soft Suede card stock. Adhere with dimesnionals.
  • Tie a bow using Braided Linen Trim in Mossy Meadow (NEW ITEM!) and Gold Cord from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Adhere with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. Made a banner at one end.
  • Die cut a decorative strip using the Brushed Metallic Paper and the Painted Labels Dies. Adhere with liquid glue to the back of the sentiment banner. Add dimensionals to the right end of the banner and adhere to the card front. I also suggest putting some liquid glue on the left end of the sentiment banner to adhere to the pine bough square.

For the inside… and the envelope…

  • Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White card stock cut to 4 x 5 1/4. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set.
  • Stamp the pine boughs (yep, from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set) in Soft Suede ink, stamping off at least once, twice might be even better.
  • Cut a strip of the Neutrals DSP 2 1/4 x 6 and adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue. Trim to fit. YEAH! Card is done, done, done!
