Mingle All the Way easy Christmas Cards

 

Last month I taught a Stamp A Stack Class for Janice and her friends (students make 2 of each card design in the class – 8 cards total), so cards can't be too involved because everyone would need to end up bringing sleeping bags if we were there too long…  This was one of the cards I designed for the class… quick and simple Christmas card featuring several fun Stampin' Up! products.  See the bottom of this post for a complete list and ordering info for all products for my online store.

The Filigree Frame Embossing Folder background is a really perfect, subtle touch for this card. 

This would make a great card for your Christmas card if you are stamping and sending several. I'd love to help you figure out what you need to order if you'd like to create these handmade Christmas Cards this year!

I really love giving options in a Stamp A Stack class, so students could select which greeting they wanted to use – from the Mingle all the Way stamp set – and which Designer Paper pieces they wanted to use as well.  I cut up lots of strips from the Trim the Tree paper stack and everyone had fun looking at all the patterns!

 To make this card go really quickly, it's nice to have lots of 2" x 4-1/4" strips of Whisper White cardstock ready to go, then everyone can just pop the strip into either the Scallop Tag Topper Punch or the Angled Tag Topper punch and create the tag focal point for the card.

This is what the card table looked like before class.. wish I would have taken a photo after everyone had all the little patterned papers spread out everywhere 🙂

Wondrous Wreath Grateful For You card

 

New Oct. 21 Weekly Deals << click to view/order online

New Holiday Supplement << click to view/order online

Feeling so grateful for so many reasons.. one of them is for my recent stamp class attendees at a Stamp A Stack class I held at Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church here in the Bay Area!!  This is one of the cards we created.. and I think everyone really loved it!!  How can you not like this gorgeous Wondrous Wreath stamp!? 

Wondrous-wreath-fall-grateful-card-stampin-up

Wondrous-wreath-fall-grateful-card-stampin-up-tag One of the design ideas that I particularly love on this card is the layering of the punched out Note Tag Punch over the Chalk Talk framelit die cut. Don't they look great together!?  I picked up that idea from my friend Ruth Bingle!

The wreath was stamped in Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze. For info on stamping and die cutting this wreath, you can view the Stampin' Up! YouTube video here.

Another design idea you might want to try on this card is to die cut some little leaves using the Fun Fall Framelit dies and cardstock or designer paper. I added them to this version of the same card below:

Beautiful Bunch Flower Stamp with Lovely Lace Embossing Folder

 

You know I'm all about flowers, right? … and I'm REALLY all about any matching stamp and punch… well, here's my new 2014 favorite from Stampin' Up!  Another new flower stamp with a matching punch!! YAY Stampin' Up!!  whohooo!

I hope you like these cards we made in Stamp Class last weekend!

Beautiful-bunch-lovely-lace-embossing-folder-cards

Some of the new Stampin' Up! stamps and products I used are:

Beautiful Bunch Stamp set, pg 158, #134279 (wood), #134282 (clear)

matching flower punch: Fun Flower, pg 219, #133785

You really need to add these to your wish list.. and while you are at it, add this gorgeous new embossing folder.. how pretty is this embossed in Whisper White Cardstock!?? aaah!!!! Lovely Lace embossing folder, pg 227, #133737.

Oh, and the new greetings I used are from the Hey You set… i am pretty sure this is this set gets the award for "most hidden in the catalog".. find it on pg 103!! They are shown at 1/2 size so they are easy to miss!

Lovely-lace-embossing-folder-stampin-up-samples

133737-lovely-lace-texture-impressions-embossing-folder

 

Above: you can see that once you emboss it if you flip the paper over, you can either get an embossed (raised) or debossed (depressed) impression on the paper! That's like 2 embossing folders in one! 🙂 (2, 2, mints in 1) (remember that?)

 

<<< This is the beautiful Lovely Lace Embossing Folder… wow.. even my best stamping friends said "This is a Patty embossing folder"… do they know me or what!?

Lovely Lace embossing folder, pg 227, #133737

Beautiful-bunch-lovely-lace-embossing-folder-card

I punched the leaves using the same Fun Flower punch and a green cardstock scrap.. great way to use up scraps!

While you have that wish list out, may I suggest adding the gorgeous new Blackberry Bliss ink and ribbon to your order?  Wow.. .BEST new color ever!! 

I stamped the dotted center with Daffodil Delight and punched it out with the 7/8" scallop circle punch.. this would have been equally as pretty with the new Hello Honey ink, too!  Then I added Pearls and colored them with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities marker (coming soon!).

Regarding Dahlias Fall “Mum” card

WEEKLY DEALS Nov. 19 to Nov. 25 << click to view/purchase now!

Annual Stampin Up Holiday Sale!

——————-

I wanted to share another Fall card before I start sharing a lot of Christmas ideas with you …

We made this in a recent Stamp A Stack class I taught, and it features the Regarding Dahlia stamp set, but we colored it to kind of make it look like a mum for fall.

Notecard-regarding-dahlias

The secret to this pretty flower stamp is to stamp the image in Cajun Craze and then sponge color on the paper after it's stamped.  SUPER quick and easy card!! 

Class participants had the choice of using some Washi Tape or die cuts and punch out pieces to finish their card. 

We used the WONDERFUL new Whisper White notecards with envelopes.. have you tried the new ones yet?  They are a great heavy weight and I love them!

 These sweet notecards measure: 3-1/2" x 5"
