Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Carols of Christmas Card Idea

Stampin-up-christmas-card-idea- 8-7-a

For this week's makeover, let's take a look at a Christmas card idea that features the early release stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, Carols of Christmas.

This card features the stamp set without the coordinating framelits.  You can see other beautiful samples featuring both the stamps and framelits in this bundle on this page.

Today's version has a couple of changes that I'll share in the inklings below.

You can see this Christmas card video HERE on You Tube.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used in today's project.  Although I've only used the Carols of Christmas stamp set, I've included the links to the bundles with the framelits below.  Just click through below!

  • For this one, the strips measure 2 1/2 x 12 and 1 1/2 x 12.
  • The excess was trimmed after wrapping the paper around the glass.

Christmas Crafting on Facebook LIVE

Just finished some Christmas crafting and chatting on Facebook LIVE in my Ink and Inspirations Stampers Group!  It's been a while and it's always so much fun to share a little crafting time with friends.

The first project was this Christmas cone to use with this antique bed spring.  I plan to fill it with mints to use in my stamp room.  It all started with a 8" square piece of the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper.

Diy-christmas-table-decorThese next two are smaller cones created with a 4" square piece of designer paper.  They make cute ornaments with a sweet treat tucked inside.
