Holiday Lamppost Christmas Card ideas

The Christmas Lamppost from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog reminds me of our Dept. 56 / Dickens Village houses and accessories we used to set up every year at Christmas!  I loved creating these cards using the Lamppost thinlit die and accessorizing them with the Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the world designer paper!

 

  Christmas Lamppost card idea featuring Stampin' UP! holiday catalog Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the World paper, by Patty Bennett

Above: I added a die cut gold foil reindeer (from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit dies) to the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper snowy hills.

Below: I added a hand cut nutcracker from the Christmas Around the World paper to this version of my Christmas Lamppost card.

Christmas Lamppost card idea with nutcracker featuring Stampin' UP! holiday catalog Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the World paper, by Patty Bennett

 

In the card above, I also die cut a tree using the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, which I sponged very lightly with Emerald Envy ink and a sponge dauber for just a hint of color.

Both of my cards feature the snowflake "Year of Cheer" paper in the background, a layer of Basic Black cardstock, and some hand cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the snowy hills. 

I found that the 1/2" circle punch works perfectly for a Daffodil Delight yellow light behind the die cut lamps.  Adding some Clear Wink of Stella also makes them "shine".

Each card also features the die cut wreath and bow, using the Christmas Lamppost thinlit dies and the preprinted Christmas Around the World designer paper (all found on page 29 of the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in the product photos at the bottom of this blog post).

Foil Snowflake ornament Christmas Card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Merry Little Christmas paper, by Patty Bennett

 

 If you need a pretty quick and easy, yet really pretty Christmas card idea, might I suggest this one featuring the Foil Snowflakes, Christmas Happiness & Seasonal Lantern stamp sets, and Merry Little Christmas paper, all from the 2017 Holiday Catalog (all products are featured below at the bottom of this post).

 

Punch or die cut a circle for the Foil Snowflake on this quick and easy Christmas Card idea from Patty Bennett

It's pretty easy to create:

1.  Die cut or punch a circle in your Whisper White panel.

2.  Stamp the pine bough and greeting

3.  Layer with a silver or champagne foil circle and the foil snowflake onto patterned paper and folded card.

 

Stampin' Up! supplies for a quick and easy foil snowflake Christmas card

 

The plaid patterned paper is found in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack, and the base card is an Old Olive folded card.

 

Foil Snowflake and pine bough Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog supplies. by Patty Bennett

 I added some Old Olive Glitter Enamel dots to the card to give it just a little extra bling.

The Real Fed die cut bow is from the Pretty Pines thinlit die set, but there are also lots of other bow stamps, dies or punches you could use.

 

Stampin' UP! Foil Snowflake Christmas card idea by Patty Bennett, featuring Holiday catalog products.

I colored a White Perfect Accent dot with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends marker and added it to the center of the bow.

Thank you for joining me! I hope you like this simple Christmas Card idea!

Smitten Mittens and Snowflake embossing folder card

 

It may not be frosty cold here in California, but we still have occasions to wear mittens in the cool nights. :)   I thought these adorable mittens from Stampin' Up! were so cute and wanted to feature them in a fun card for you today!

 

Smitten Mittens snowflake card featuring Stampin' Up! holiday catalog stamps and embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I was originally inspired by a card done by Barbara Strauss Nagle, and put my own twists on it.  I stamped the background with Pool Party ink on Whisper White cardstock using the Marbled background stamp (pg 165 2017 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog), and then embossed it with the Winter Wonder snowflake embossing folder.

Doesn't the marbled background stamp make it look like swirling wind and snow?

The snowflakes are stamped in Pool Party ink, and the greeting (from Hearts Come Home stamp set) is stamped in Island Indigo ink.

 

Smitten Mittens snowflake card featuring Stampin' Up! holiday catalog stamps and embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

The mittens are die cut using the Many Mittens framelit dies on pg 38 of the 2017 Holiday catalog.  I used stamp images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set - buy these together and SAVE 10% on the bundle!

I finished off the mittens with stamped and die cut images from the Smitten Mittens bundle and the blue Glitter Enamel shapes.   The mittens are "tied together" with silver trim from the Mini Tinsel Trim combo pack. 

Watch the Smitten Mittens Stampin' Up! Video below for more ideas!

Year of Cheer Copper Reindeer Christmas Card Idea

 Need a beautiful but pretty quick and easy Holiday card to send this year?  I have an idea for you!  This reindeer card features copper foil paper and the beautiful Stampin' UP! Year of Cheer designer paper!

 

Copper Reindeer Holiday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer background paper, and Santa's Sleigh framelits. by Patty Bennett

 

The Reindeer is die cut using the Santa's Sleigh framelits and the Copper Foil Paper.  It coordinates perfectly with this beautiful copper foil pattern in the Year of Cheer designer paper

It's not easy to photograph metallic images, but I hope you'll trust me that this copper reindeer and copper patterned Year of Cheer paper is gorgeous in person!!

  For blog project sheet download pattystamps copy

Download Year of Cheer copper reindeer project sheet and supplies pattystamps

 

The card base is a thick Whisper White note card - so no cutting, measuring or scoring! It's all done!

 

Copper Reindeer Holiday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer background paper, and Santa's Sleigh framelits. by Patty Bennett

The Reindeer is popped using Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on a Whisper White oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.  I added the silver metallic doily and rhinestones to give a fun "mixed metals" look.

The greeting is stamped in Real Red ink from the Season to Sparkle stamp set, and die cut with the Bunch of Banners framelits.  The Real Red die cut bow on the reindeer is from the Bouquet Bunch framelits, but I noticed that the bow in the Holly Berry Builder punch (here) would be a great and quick alternative!

 Thank you for joining me! I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday card idea!

Hot Cocoa Christmas Cheer Note Cards

 

This adorable Cocoa Mug Christmas card really wins the award for CLEVERNESS!!  Cindee showed me this fantastic tip about die cutting a letter C and adding it to the die cut coffee cup to make a fun cocoa mug!!  Read on to see what I mean!

 

Coffee Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug Christmas cards featuring Wink of Stella glimmer on the snowflake and whipped cream. Stampin' Up! supplies available online - click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

These fun Christmas Cheer Cocoa Mug cards were 2 designs I made for customer thank you cards and for swap cards that I took to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Convention recently!!  I love them both.  The difference in the 2 cards is the Cherry Cobbler Pattern for the mug and the Soft Sky blue background paper. 

 

Die cut a letter C and a coffee cup, put them together to create a cute hot cocoa mug!

 

To make the cocoa mug, simply die cut a letter C from the Large Letter framelits and tuck it behind the die cut coffee cup, and voila, a fun cocoa mug!!

I added clear glittery Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the whipped cream die cuts.  The glitter is hard to see on the cards in the photos, but it looks pretty cute in person! The whipped cream stamp is found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

This is how I prepare my project when I'm creating lots of customer thank yous, Luv 2 Stamp group cards, or swaps.  I get all the parts ready, organize them on my crafting desk, then start assembling.

Now that you have mostly likely ordered the very popular Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Bundle (or stamp set), I thought you might enjoy this idea to stretch your "sunflower" stamp image and learn how to create a poinsettia flower with it to create a holiday or Christmas card!

 

Painted Harvest sunflower stamp from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog becomes a poinsettia with watercolor paper and a stampin' spritzer with water. Holiday / Christmas card idea from Patty Bennett

I used Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper and a Stampin' Spritzer filled with water to create this beautiful holiday card idea, turning the sunflower into a poinsettia!

It's really quite easy, simply use the Cherry Cobbler and Rose Red ink pads (per above) and stamp them onto Watercolor paper with the Painted Harvest Sunflower image and then spritz with water and the Stampin' Spritzer until you have achieved the look you want!

Then stamp the center when the flower is dry.  I used Daffodil Delight ink.

Tip!

For a fun layered greeting on any card, layer the Stitched Shape framelits and the layering ovals, circles or squares!

 

Stamping Tip: Use the Stampin' Up! Stitched Shape framelits and Layering Ovals to create lovely matted greetings for your handmade cards.

I stamped the Season of Cheer greeting (from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set) onto Very Vanilla Cardstock, then die cut it with the Stitched Shape Oval, and used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Layering Ovals framelits to make the scalloped border.  A few Gold Metallic shapes werethe perfect little touch to finish the card.
