SU Christmas Card

SU Night in Bethlehem

 

October 6, 2017

My favorite Christmas cards are ones with a nativity that remind of us of the birth of Jesus. This beautiful SU bundle called Night in Bethlehem conveys just that sentiment. Mary and Joseph traveling to find a place while shepherds see the sign in the sky announcing the coming savior.


Simple and detailed thinlits create a gorgeous background with the blessed couple stamped and die cut.  They are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A beautiful Silver Foil star is also popped up in the sky. The inside show a wonderful sentiment and a shepherd gazing at the star announcing the birth of our Savior.

 

Getting ready to celebrate my daughter’s wedding weekend…pics to follow soon!

SU Smitten Mittens

September 4, 2017

I am smitten the new SU Smitten Mittens Bundle!

The stamps with coordinating framelits are just perfect to make a quick WOW card.

Take a look at this cutie I made with the bundle:

The detailed die cut mittens were attached over a solid white mitten, isn’t that neat?
And the Holly Berry Builder Punch added a cute little embellishment for the mittens. Although, I could have connected the mittens with some of the new Tinsel Trim, huh?

You will notice some new items from the Holiday catalog used on this card- the Quilt Top Embossing Folder and the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon but you may be looking around the new catalog for the Designer Series Paper with the adorable mittens on it. Well, you won’t find it because it is in the Annual Catalog! You may have overlooked the Be Merry DSP since the holidays were not in sight when the Annual catalog come out in June.

It is super cute, and has a classic Christmas red, green, and white theme. Well, actually, it is Cherry Cobbler but it matches well with the Real Red in the new ribbon:) I love all the multicolored small patterned designs perfect for the bottom of a card.  My DSP is 2″ x 4″ so you get a lot of cards from one 12×12 piece of DSP.

*Think of all the cards you can design with a 2″ x 4″ piece of DSP on the bottom and some focal point on the top- a classic, easy template to use when designing any card.

I used a warm sentiment inside the card found in the SU Hearts Come Home stamp set-

another wonderful set in the new catalog!

SU Star of Light Bundle

October 20, 2016

I think the Star of Light Bundle is one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog… and it was one of the favorite cards we did at our Christmas Stamp-a-Stack this month, too:)

I love the sentiments that focus on the real meaning of the season… Jesus, the Light of the World.

I love using non-traditional colors at Christmas…isn’t Elegant Eggplant just lovely? I often use Smokey Slate cardstock with the Silver Glimmer Paper. Vellum seemed just perfect to use with the star, too. Many of my gals thought the inside star was a stamp only to find out it was die cut with a thinlit allowing the Elegant Eggplant cardstock to peek through!

SU Hang Your Stockings

October 7, 2016

I just love the SU Hang Your Stocking bundle! All those images and framelits- oh, what fun!

And, this card essentially used just the framelits!

su-hang-your-stocking

For this card, I used the 4″ x 5 1/2″ Emerald Envy background that frames the brick fireplace to cut out my stockings- hey, it is going to be covered up anyway! Then I ran the 3 3/4″ x 5″ Real Red cardstock through the Brickwall embossing folder. I mounted them on my Whisper White card base and attached a 5 1/4″ x 3/4″ Chocolate Chip mantle stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.

Next, I die cut three white stockings and adhered them to the green stockings. Then I stamped three red inked stocking tops and die cut them as well. To finish off the stocking, I tied a linen thread bow in each jingle bell and attached it using glue dots. A really easy card!

I did a simple greeting inside the card. Ha, I did not even touch all the amazing stocking images yet in this stamp set that can be easily cut out with the thinlits. Can’t wait to do that!

I thought I would share this card with the team over at Stamp Ink Paper for their Card Maker’s Choice Challenge # 68.
