One of my favorite cards from last year’s Christmas Stack-a-Stack was this card.
You can see it HERE.
The Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set and the Merry Christmas Dies are still available in the Annual Catalog if you don’t have them…and need them!
I came across it in my box of Christmas cards, and it decided to case myself! I thought the banners would be a great canvas to place the copper Cheers die cut on.
I used the Stampin’ Up Sip Sip Hooray and the Cheers to you Bundles on this card with the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper.
When I stamped the champagne flute with the “liquid” image that goes in the glass, I wasn’t feeling it. So I pulled out my retired Confetti Stars border punch and filled the glass up with “bubbly” stars! I added a copper flute behind my stamped flute to jazz it up, too.
I love making fun fold cards..trying to find ways to make a card just a little different from the regular design. I used the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle to make one this wedding card.
The front of the card shows off the detailed Blushing Bride oval floral die cut that I embossed with the Subtle EF. I placed it on the Smoky Slate card base around the die cut 1-7/8″ x 2-3/4″ oval. The Best Wishes sentiment that sits on a 1″ x 2″ oval framed by a Smoky Slate scallop oval. I added a Blushing Bride oval frame to the back of the opening on the Smoky Slate card base by die cutting a larger oval (2-1/8″ x 3″) around a smaller oval (1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″).
When the card opens, you can see the pretty Scripty embossed panel that the sentiment sits on.
When you open the card, there is an open area for the sentiment and a place to site you message.
You could easily attach a pocket for a check, cash or gift card on the back of the embossed panel.

Friends of ours just purchased their first home, and it is beautiful!
We got to go see it over the weekend.
I gave them a gift card tucked in a card I made using some elements from their actual home- the gray, the brown, the white, and the texture on upper part of the house. And…I added in their cat who conveniently is gray! I was so pleased with the white around the brown door just like their house:)
I used the retiring Stampin’ Up At Home with You for the door, the welcome mat, and the lantern.
I added in the chair from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Layers Framelits and the kitty from the retiring Stampin’ Up Sitting Here Stamp Sets.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Enjoy your Memorial Day with family and friends as you remember your loved ones who served their country
and pray for and give thanks to those who are serving our country now.
I just love black and white as a design element and adding in a pop of any color just makes me happy! Adding in red is even better!
I was playing around with my SU Floral Frames Bundle and came up with this:
Simply stamp the foliage image and run it through the Big Shot with the NEW Tufted Embossing Folder. Stamp some posies with the returning color Poppy Parade ink and pop them up with some stamping dimensionals. Oh, and I used the Layering Circles to accent the sentiment.
The leaves could have been colored in any of our great greens but I chose to keep in simple with just the three colors. I love the Poppy Parade color- such a lovely bright red so different from Real Red which is one of my faves. Red is an important color to have on hand and having two beautiful Stampin’ Up reds is super!
I just used a marker to dot in the middle of the flowers to mimic the front.
