I know several people who celebrate a birthday right around Christmas, and I thought these might be fun card ideas for December birthdays! My cards today feature the brand new 2019 Piece of Cake bundle – save 10% – (stamp set and punch) from the upcoming Occasions catalog!
I used a fun Stampin’ Up! color combo of Real Red, Call me Clover, Whisper White and Coastal Cabana inspired by a holiday tin shown below in this post.
Above: I have added a fun flourish image on top of the cake. You’ll find that in the new Amazing Life stamp set #148750 coming on Jan. 3, 2019 in the Occasions catalog. The CELEBRATE image is from the Vibrant Vases set (#148656) and I masked the other portion of the stamp.
I was inspired by this cute tin from a craft store, and decided to create these 2 cards after seeing this cute tin!
What do you think? Would you send these for December birthdays or other celebrations?
Cute and Easy Santa's Workshop Christmas Card ideas featuring the Stampin' UP! Buffalo Check background stamp and the Memories & More card pack!! You'll find these products in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday catalog, pages 21 and 38, or at the bottom of today's blog post.
I have 3 adorable Christmas cards to share with you today!! These cards were created with the Memories & More Card pack, the Buffalo check background stamp, and Real Red cardstock. They are super easy to create! For the card above and below, Cindee and I die cut the Santa Bag Memories & More card with the Layering Ovals oval framelit, then added the cute Santa cap to the elf (it's a sticker in the package), layered that onto a Garden Green Scalloped Oval die cut, and then added an addition elf and stamped greeting. The stamp is from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and die cut with the Farmhouse Framelits (order them as a bundle at 10% off!). Find the bundle on pg 13 in the Holiday catalog or below in this post with a link to my online store!
The bow is punched out with the Candy Cane punch and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.
Dimensions for cutting and scoring the Real Red cardstock for the Gate Fold:
Did you see the totally adorable Gift Card holder I made with these Santa's Workshop Memories & More cards? If you missed it, CLICK HERE to see that post!
For the card above and below, I cut off 1/2 of the front of a standard fold card and so it opens like a dutch door. The Buffalo Check is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on all of the cards, onto Whisper White cardstock.
The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Festive Farmhouse stamp set, stamped in Real Red.
Below: we die cut one of the Memories & More cards with the Stitched Shape Square framelit die in the Big Shot, and layered it onto a Scalloped Square framelit die cut in Real Red. The greeting is one of the Memories & More cards die cut with the Festive Farmhouse framelit.

Winter Woods stamp set available starting Sept. 5, 2018!
I hope you enjoy my Layered Ink Technique video tutorial at the bottom of this post, with info to create these cards featuring the Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set!
As you will see in the video below, you'll need your Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool, and several markers to enjoy this fun Layered Ink technique! I used the Winter Woods stamp set (clear mount) and Whisper White cardstock with my Stampin' Write markers to create these 2 cards. The background is the brand new Buffalo Check background stamp – also available starting 9/5/18.
Thanks to Jenny Hall for the Layered ink tutorial.. I adapted it to use with this stamp set, and love it!
Above: After stamping the pine trees, I added several enamel snowflakes from the Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes package (pg 19 Holiday Catalog #147811), and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce ink from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (pg 33 Holiday catalog, #148939 or 148936). I used a small bit of an Old Olive colored doily (#146935) peeking out under the sentiment and some metallic gold pearls for accents (#146282).
Above & Below: the Buffalo check background is stamped onto Mint Macaron cardstock.. in Mint Macaron ink above, and Shaded Spruce ink below. Find the Buffalo check stamp on pg 38 in the Holiday catalog, #147797 or 147794.
Above: To finish off this card, I die cut some Mint Macaron cardstock "sprigs" from the Frosted Bouquet framelits (sponging a little Shaded Spruce ink on a few ends), and I also added a copper leaf trinket because I liked how it complimented the tree trunks. The greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed these cards today. You could change the greeting and use them most any time of year, and I think they'd make particularly nice "manly cards", too!

I love everything about this card! I love the watercolor-look tree image, the layered ovals, the sponged edges, the stamped background, and the simple embellishments! I stamped this card one day when I was crafting at Cindee's house. We took some inspiration from Pinterest, but ended up making it pretty much our own :) Isn't that was crafters do? 🙂
I used the Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelit dies (get them in a bundle at a discount!), and the Handwritten background stamp!
I posted a video a few days ago showing how to stamp this watercolor-look tree. I'm including it in my post below.
Die cut a watercolor paper oval with the Stitched Shape framelits for the tree image
Sponge the edges of the oval and the background image with Soft Suede ink for a beautiful soft touch
Stamp the Handwritten background stamp in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Nature's Poem Designer Paper
Stamp and die cut leaves with the Rooted in Nature bundle
Add a Linen Thread bow to the card for one last "natural" looking embellishment
Watch the video below for details on coloring and spritzing the tree image for the watercolor look

Hello! Thank you for joining me today for another handstamped card idea! Today I am featuring the Stampin’ Up! Bokeh Dots background stamp as well as the Spectrum Rainbow pad that I inked with my Stampin’ Up! ink refills!
For this colorful birthday card idea, I inked the Bokeh Dots background stamp with my spectrum pad (it is the perfect size!!) and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut that to 1/4″ around the image, layered it onto the Gorgeous Grape printed paper from my Brights 6×6 Designer Paper Stack and then onto a 3-1/2″ x 5″ Stampin’ Up! thick whisper white note card! I finished off the card with 3 of the Glitter Enamel Dots and a stamped greeting in Gorgeous Grape from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.
A couple weeks ago when I received my New Stampin' Blends markers in my Stampin' Up! order, I grabbed this Beautiful You stamp set and stamped several images to try out the new marker colors. This is a great set to use when practicing your coloring.
I stamped the lady image from Beautiful You with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with my Stampin' Blends. I used the Flirty Flamingo combo pack, the Poppy Parade combo pack and Bermuda Bay combo pack. I matted the smaller white piece onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
The base card is a thick Whisper White Note Card stamped with Pool Party and the Handwritten background stamp.
