O Holy Night Christmas Card

2019-christmas-card-o-holy-night

Today's project is a sweet Christmas card featuring the So Many Stars bundle.  The sentiment and the font are so pretty!

The designer paper is no longer available but you could create your own background with stamps and Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Let's take a look at the quick video.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is Night of Navy 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". 
  • Cut another Night of Navy piece instead of designer paper at 4" x 5-1/4".  You can stamp, emboss, or texture this piece.
  • You will need another piece of Night of Navy cut at 4" x 4" to die cut for the sentiment.
  • Die cut a star from a piece of Sparkle Glimmer paper approx. 4" x 4".

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies for this card:

Need To Make a Get Well Card?

Stampin-up-get-well-cardChances are, if you don't know someone that could use a get well card now, you will some time in the future.  This beautiful Healing Hugs stamp set from Stampin' Up! is one that is a staple in my collection.

Don't you love the Distinktive images that give you shading and texture with just one ink then stamp motion?  Or, as you will see in the video, you can "stamp off" so that your ink is not so dark and get varying shades of the same color.

Let's take a look!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Whisper White Card Stock- 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" for card base, 2-3/4" x 3", and approximately 5" x 5" for stamping and die cutting.
  • Blueberry Bushel Card Stock 4" x 4"
  • Blackberry Bliss Card Stock- 6-1/2" x 3".

The Boughs of Holly Saga and a 2019 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card

Boughs-of-holly-1Today's 2019 Christmas card project was a struggle for me!

I know...it's a simple card, what could the struggle be?

Well, I wanted to use the "boughs of holly" sentiment with some holly.  As you'll see in the video, this is my third try at the project.  To tell the truth, sometimes we (I) make things too hard.  You (I) can put too much thought into a creative project when most of the time it's just best to keep it simple.

Such was the case of the Boughs of Holly Saga.  Are you ready? Here you go...

Here are the supplies needed to create this card!  Just click the links to shop.  Thank you so much for your support of my business!

Thank you for taking the time to listen to saga! I was making it so much harder than it had to be.  Don't we all do that every now and then? (Please agree and make me feel better!) ;)

The Gilded Rose with the Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Suite

Gilded-rose-2Today's card project features the beautiful Christmastime is Here Suite all decked out with a golden rose!

The more you work with this set, the more you see how versatile and beautiful it really is!  You really should get it if you haven't already!

The creative process started with the decision to emboss the Christmas Rose stamp in gold. Once that was done, choosing the remaining elements was easy.  This card reminds me of this Christmas card that I made with the retired but not forgotten Lovely As A Tree from years ago.

I recorded a quick video with a voice over for you to see the process.  All the details and the products used are listed below.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Base is in Very Vanilla cut a 4-1/4 x 11 and scored at 5-1/2.
  • You will need about a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of Very Vanilla for stamping and die cutting and another 3 x 4 piece for the sentiment.
  • Gold Foil is cut at 4 x 5-1/4.
  • Ribbon is cut at about 18".
