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.
My mom needed a thank you card for a person who LOVES flowers so I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle. I think I fulfilled her request with this card:)
There are so many colors to work with in this pattern in the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I was happy to use my Rococo Rose ink and Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I did use Old Olive as my green even though Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow are listed on the package. I also used So Saffron as my yellow instead of Daffodil Delight ink. I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out the sentiment, and the slanted edges lined up nicely with the circle.
The DSP on the front of the card is 3-3/4″ x 5 with the Night of Navy border being 3-7/8 x 5-1/8. My first plan was to have a tight border around the DSP but it slid in the corner as I had it sitting on my desk. I kinda liked the look so I slid the DSP down into the right lower corner of the Night of Navy panel. I was trying to be crafty by not wrapping the ribbon on both sides of the DSP, I think it may look like I just ran out of ribbon…lol.
I added some of the DSP to the inside and kept a larger border like the front.
The inside panel is 3-3/4″ x 5″.
I am on a nature kick lately…
playing with neutrals and some of the beautiful animal images Stampin’ Up offers us.
I was inspired by Australian Demo Kylie Bertucci. Here is her card:
I stamped the Crumb Cake front panel with the Stampin’ Up Rooted in Nature stamp set. The log and the leaves were stamped in Soft Suede and the little branches of leaves were stamped with Early Espresso to coordinate with the card base and sentiment. I was going to put a layer around my focal image of the animals but then thought…dang, I can use my Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out an opening and get to see the outside decorative stitching left on the panel and then inlay the deer image with dimensionals leaving a dark border around it made from the existing card base! Now, I have another stamped die cut rectangle to make something with…you know I will…sooner or later…let’s hope it is sooner;)
I finally cut into the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper!
I made a Fun fold called a Buckle Card because of the way the card closes- a belt slides into a buckle:)
Here is a video showing how to make one:
The beautiful hummingbirds with the clear embossed texture on the DSP were easy to fussy cut with my Stampin’ Up Paper Snips. I made two different variations depending on how the hummingbird was facing.
The Stampin’ Up Here’s a Card stamp set had a great sentiment that fit the card wonderfully.
Card Base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 8-1/2″ side.
The Leaves DSP is 2-3/4″ x 4″ and the belt DSP is 1-1/2″ x 3″.
The Belt is 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 5-1/4″ so there is a 1/4″ flap to attach to the card base.
The embossed circle is 2-1/4″, the bordering circle is 2-1/2″. Inside panel is 4″ x 5-1/4″.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

* I did use the 2-1/4″ and the 2-1/2″ circle punches:)
My daughter asked me for a card that was like “sending a hug” in the mail.
So…I did exactly what she asked me in the half hour before she wanted to pick it up…
When I made it, I die cut the hugs with the Hand Lettered Prose Dies and laid them on the panel I stamped with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. It was too flat so I thought of little pieces of dimensionals but that would be tedious and not very stable. So I put the die cut letters on some white fun foam I had. I just die cut the hugs out of the fun foam, used Tombow glue to attatch the DSP hugs, and then glued them to the panel:) It looks so good! Now, if Stampin’ Up had sheets of dimensionals we could cut out shapes…that would be awesome!
I forgot to snap a pic of the inside…a simple repeat of the flourish in the lower right corner:)
