Detailed Deer Christmas card with Woodland Embossing Folder

 I thought you might like to see a Christmas card idea I took to Orlando to swap with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators at our 2018 OnStage event!!

I used the Stampin' Up! Detailed Deer framelit with Copper Foil paper, the Woodland Embossing folder in the background, Glimmer Paper, shimmer paint, and more!

I love the deer die cut from the copper foil paper... it's really the focal point of the card!

You can make these cards!!  All supplies are available in my online store, just click ANY product photo at the bottom of my blog post! Thank you!

The Woodland Embossing folder from Stampin' UP! creates the perfect background for this card!! The subtle tree trunks in the background were embossed with my Big Shot then I spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint... scroll down a little to see more about that!

The greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot ink from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a Stitched Label framelit die cut and decorated with the Frosted & Clear epoxy droplets.

When I make multiple cards, I always cut, embossed, die cut, score and stamp all the layers first, gather all my supplies, then make all the cards.. here are my swap card supplies:

 

Supplies for my Detailed Deer die cut with Copper Foil Paper on Woodland embossing folder background. Stampin' Up! OnStage 2018 swap card by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

TIP!  Be sure to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue  when adhering your embossed images to your handmade cards.. it holds the layers together much better than dry adhesives.   I used it also when adhering the glimmer paper "snow" to the embossed image.

To create the Glimmer paper snow, I cut a 3" x 4" pieces of glimmer paper then used my paper snips to cut a wavy line down the middle, and that produced TWO pieces of snowy hills.  :)

The neighborhood squirrel was watching me from the top of the fence.. I'm sure he thought I'd lost my marbles! :)

Feather & Frost Christmas Wreath Card idea

 

I love square cards because they are a bit unexpected, but so fun!  I created this square card featuring the Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost stamp set and the Layering Squares framelit dies.  I also used a bit of an unexpected Christmas color combo of Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce!

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Directions:

  • I started by die cutting the Whisper White Scalloped Square in the Big Shot, then stamping the flower like a clock, at 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, then stamping the flower in between, in Poppy Parade ink.
  • I masked the flowers and stamped several leaves from the Candy Cane Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink.
  • I stamped the banner from Birthday Banners in Shaded Spruce, die cut it with the Bunch of Banners framelits, and then stamped the LOVE & JOY in Poppy Parade (it's from the Great Joy set (pg 22 Holiday catalog).
  • The sweet bow is stamped with Shaded Spruce ink, and it's from the Candy Cane bundle!
  • Final touch, add logs of bling with Gold Metallic pearls!

What do you think of this Stampin' UP! Christmas color combo?  Vibrant and bright Poppy Parade, paired with the elegant and stately Shaded Spruce!?

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies and Poppy Parade / Shaded Spruce color combo by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 The Layering Square framelits are definitely one of the stars of the show here!!   I layered the Whisper White scalloped square onto Shaded Spruce, then another Whisper White square then onto a 4-1/4" square Poppy Parade folded card base.

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

After I stamped the Poppy Parade Flowers, I used a Blender Pen to just slightly blend the ink without really coloring them in.

Looking for the Feather & Frost stamp set?  Find it on page 30 of your 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or here in my online store.

DIY Note Pad project for Christmas To-Do List

 I am a "to do list" lover.  I have lists everywhere.  One place I keep a notepad for my lists is my car.  I love these Clear Stamp Case Note Pad Holders in my car because it keeps the list nice and clean and protected from you know.. stuff like spills or the occasional french fry that leaps out of the bag... :)

We made these at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamp day.   I took all of the Stampin' Up! supplies to the event and everyone made one!

You can read all the step by step tips to make your own note pad holder in the free download above, but basically you will want to create the designer paper insert with Stampin' Up! designer paper (we used Festive Farmhouse paper) and then a strip of Galvanized paper cut to look like a snowy hill.  It measures a total of 7" x 10-5/8" total.

If you slip this into your clear mount stamp case, close the case, and "crease" on the spine, when you pull the paper out, you'll see exactly where to add the trees and sentiment on the front portion.

Use the amazing Tear & Tape to adhere a strip of designer paper over the logo on the mini legal pad, and also to adhere the legal pad into the clear stamp case.  (see below).

These make GREAT gifts, and because you can purchase a pack of 4 of these clear stamp cases for only $6.00 (here), and you can buy the mini legal pads for just a few dollars at places like Sam's club, Staples, etc., they are really economical!  You might even check the dollar store!

 To decorate the front, I stamped the pine tree from Winter Woods in Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the "In the Woods" framelit dies.  I also die cut one of the detailed trees and left it white.

The greeting is also stamped in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut with the stitched shape circle, layered onto a Shaded Spruce scalloped circle.  The stamps is in the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

Alpine Adventure Christmas Card Idea

 I had this idea in my head to die cut the Alpine Adventures sled with Stampin' Up! Wood Textures paper.. and I really love how these projects turned out!! I created Christmas card designs and a sweet pillow box for a small gift or gift card!

 

Alpine Adventures wood sled Christmas Card ideas featuring Stampin' Up! cardmaking supplies & Tin Tile and Corrugated Embossing folder, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 The Alpine Adventure stamp set and matching Big Shot framelit dies are available as a bundle at 10% off - check out page 11 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or HERE online.

 

Alpine Adventures wood sled Christmas Card ideas featuring Stampin' Up! cardmaking supplies & Tin Tile Embossing folder, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 In addition to making dozens of cards with this bundle, I also used the same basic supplies to decorate a Pillow Box - it's the perfect size for a small gift, some chocolate, some JEWELRY!! :) or a gift card!

Alpine Adventures wood sled Christmas Pillow Box idea featuring Stampin' Up! supplies, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

TIP!!

Before die cutting the Alpine Sled, add an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Wood Textures designer paper, then die cut.  That way you can just peel the backing off and adhere it right to your project!!

Big Shot Die Cutting Tip for the Alpine Adventures wood sled featuring Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets and Wood Textures designer paper, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I always like to get all my cutting, embossing, scoring, die cutting and stamping done first, then I assemble my cards.

Layered Ink Technique with Stamparatus and Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set. Buffalo check background. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

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!

Seasonal Wreath Christmas Card with Shimmer Paint

 

Do you have a favorite Embossing Folder in the current Stampin' Up! catalog?  Find them all on pages 222-223 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, or HERE online.   I used 2 embossing folders on my Christmas card today: Seasonal Wreath (#146833) and Striped Scallops (#147188).

Seasonal Wreath embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

I embossed the wreath on a piece of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then used Sponge Daubers to add 3 colors of ink (Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call me Clover).  I used my paper snips to cut out the wreath, and then curved it to give it dimension. After cutting it out I sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer paint all over it and added Santa's Workshop red enamel dots!!

This card was inspired by Twila Davis.

Seasonal Wreath and Striped Scallops embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

The card base is Real Red cardstock (11"x4-1/4" folded in 1/2), and the white panel on top is embossed with the Striped Scallops embossing folder. 

Here are a few visuals and tips for you when sponging, creating and assembling this card:

 I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (new in the 2018 Holiday catalog, pg 33) onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I used the Layering circles framelit dies to die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to put behind the greeting.  Add the greeting to your card, then place the wreath over it.

The amazingly clear/glossy look of these Santa's Workshop enamel shapes are just gorgeous.. I loved adding them as the "berries" to this wreath!

Above: can you see the shimmer on the wreath?  That's the beautiful effect you get when you sponge Champagne Mist shimmer paint onto the wreath with a sponge dauber!!!  Shimmer paint is available in 4 colors starting Sept. 5, 2018 in the new Holiday catalog!

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card

 

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card idea!

Merry & Bright Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Merry Christmas to All bundle, and In the Woods tree die cut, paired with inked spectrum rainbow pad. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I am so excited to share this fun Christmas card idea with you!!!  I saw the idea on Pinterest to use the Bokeh dots background stamp with the Rainbow pad, and the tree die cut from the "In The Woods" framelit die set (#147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog).  The card idea inspired by demonstrator Katie Drew!  I added a beautiful layer of White Shimmer Paint to the tree die cuts, and the "Merry" die cut from the "Merry Christmas Thinlit dies" (#147912, pg 5 Holiday catalog)  using the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (#147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog).

 

Color Combo suggestion for Stampin' UP!  inked spectrum rainbow pad  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Watch the free pattystamps video on youtube stampin up

 

If you have not yet inked a spectrum rainbow pad with Stampin' UP! ink refills, you can watch the video below!

 

 

The Bokeh Dots background stamp was inked with the rainbow pad shown above, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, then used as the background for the die cut trees.

 New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog supplies used on this project:

  • Merry Christmas Thinlit dies #147912, pg 5, Holiday catalog
  • Noel Glimmer paper #147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog
  • Merry Christmas to All stamp set #147702 (available as a bundle with the dies) (pg 5)
  • White Shimmer paint #147044, pg 38 Holiday catalog
  • In The Woods framelit die set #147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog

Tip #1 & #2:

Sponge White Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber onto the Whisper White Die Cut trees

To adhere both layers together, put small dots of glue on the top tree, allowing the little "flaps" to still lift up.

Tip #3:

Put the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the Glimmer paper first, then die cut the word Merry.  This will give you a "sticker" to put onto your project and you don't have to mess with glue! :)

Christmas Candy Donations

 

Guess what I did with most of my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stockings?

I filled them with holiday candy treats, and packaged them up for a donation!  I donated these to the bowling alley 50-50 raffle this week and I hope that the recipients are going to enjoy them!

November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stocking candy treat idea.

I opened up my Paper Pumpkin Kit, got the stockings ready and went shopping for lots of fun candy treats to fill the stockings with!

Candy treats for my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stocking candy treat idea.

I assembled the tags that came with the kit, attached them to the stockings and then put 4 stockings in each little "take out box" filled with new Stampin' UP! shreddie.
