Tips for coloring the Cardinal Christmas Card featuring the Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog Toile Tidings suite of papercrafting products! by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

As I was stamping the Cardinal from the Toile Christmas stamp set, I decided to use my Blender Pen and Wink of Stella to blend the Real Red ink a bit, and then I wanted the face a bit darker, so I used my Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends marker and colored over the red face to darken it.  I also used my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker to color the beak.

After coloring the Cardinal I die cut him out with the matching Christmas Cardinal dies.  This Toile Christmas bundle is priced at 10% off, and is found on page 7 of the 2019 Holiday catalog or #152367 online.

Stamping Tips!

Above & Below:  Tips to help you make this Christmas Cardinal handstamped Christmas card, featuring the stamped and die cut wreath from the Tidings All Around bundle #152371, vellum and Toile Tidings designer paper.

My base card is a top fold Real Red cardstock base, with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Toile Tidings designer paper on top.  I used a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of vellum over the Toile Tiding paper so that the die cut wreath and cardinal would stand out a little more.  The final touch was to add a die cut branch in Garden Green from the Christmas Cardinal dies.  It’s actually 2 small branches giving the appearance of a larger branch.

All of these supplies are available HERE in my online store, and check out all of the Toile Tidings suite products here.

Stampin' UP! Snowman Snow Globe Shaker Card featuring Holiday catalog 2019 cardmaking supplies. By Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The entire Let it Snow Suite in the Holiday catalog is super fun, and especially fab if you love snowmen!!  When I was stamping with Cindee last week, we decided to try out the new “Still Scenes” Snow Globe stamp set and matching dies, but we used some snowmen from the Let it Snow specialty paper inside our snow globe shaker card!  We added several fun shaker bits to the snow globe.  It’s ADORABLE!

More fun facts about this card:

Hammered Metal embossing folder on Whisper White background, almost looks like snow falling!

A little piece of the new Real Red curly ribbon, tied in a knot and frayed, is the perfect pop of color!

Stamped and die cut snowflakes and Jolly star tag are from the Tiny Keepsakes bundle (#152390), and the snowflakes topped off with new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457) adds a great wintery touch to the card!

AND last but not least.. the Champagne Foil Sheets were used to die cut the snow globe base and I love it!

Spirited Snowmen Christmas Card ideas

On my recent plane flight to Orlando, I spent about 4 hours coloring lots of stamped Christmas images with my Stampin’ Blends markers! I stamped images from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set and the So Santa stamp set and brought along my Stampin’ Blends markers and it helped to pass the time on a long flight!  I am sharing 2 Christmas cards today using 2 of the snowman images from the Spirited Snowmen set. You’ll find this cute set on page 38 of your 2018 Holiday Catalog!

I added a 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ piece of printed designer paper from the Festive Farmhouse package (#147820) to my note card, then added the snowman oval die cut and the snowflakes and greeting.  All of these supplies are available in my online Stampin’ UP! store.  You can also click on any product image at the bottom of this blog post to go right to that item to learn more or purchase.

Design Notes:

  • I combined the Spirited Snowman stamp set with the Nothing Sweeter bundle so I could add the die cut snowflakes, greetings, and the cute stitched die cut trees to my cards
  • I used the Stitched Shape framelits for the focal images. They are stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.
  • All coloring is done with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  If you need coloring tips, I have 6 training videos HERE on my YouTube playlist.
  • Both card bases are the thick Whisper White Note cards, measuring 3-1/2″ x 5″.  They come 20 to a pack, already cut, scored and with envelopes!
  • The pretty label with the stamped greeting above is from the Stitched Label framelits and is stamped in Pool Party ink.
  • The snowflakes are stamped in Pool Party ink and die cut with the Nothing Sweeter bundle.

Above:  the Stitched Shape square is layered onto a slightly larger piece of Real Red cardstock then onto a Scalloped Square (from the Layering Squares framelits) die cut in Call me Clover cardstock.  The Sweetly Stitched trees are also die cut with Call me Clover cardstock.  I added the little 1″ punched greeting with a Stampin’ Dimensional and then added a little bow with a Glue Dot, created with the Garden Green Baker’s Twine (#147814, pg 19 Holiday catalog).
