2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card - Fun Fold Card with Brightest Glow

Brightest-glow-fun-fold-LIVEToday's 2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card features a fun-fold card using the beautiful Brightest Glow Bundle from the Stampin Up Mini Catalog. This card features a belly band for closure and it has two flaps of patterned paper that overlap just a bit and reveal an inner card with your sentiment and greetings.


The Brightest Glow Bundle (English) [159552] is part of the Lights Aglow Suite Collection (English) [159556] which also includes the Christmas Lights Bundle with beautiful trees and snowflakes that will make for some very special crafting for your holiday season.

Brightest Glow is a wonderful sentiment stamp set for Christmas. It's one of my favorites and it's "seeing ink" over and over again. The labels within the die collection in this bundle are great and have some pretty perforated accents along with some special dies that can be used on the layers or front of your card.

This fun-fold card highlights the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper [159535] This is a six-by-six stack with colors including Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, and a touch of gold foil which just makes it absolutely beautiful! One side of each sheet has a small print pattern and the other side features those beautiful gold metallic foil accents.

The Lights Aglow Suite takes the spotlight in 2022 Online Christmas Card Class Series for October which is FREE with your qualifying order!
 Place your qualifying order to reserve your place in this class.  You can get the details HERE.

2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards from World Card Making Day


We had a great time on World Card Making Day last Saturday as I went live on YouTube and Facebook to make three fun Stampin' Up! Christmas cards for 2022.

One was a clean and simple design that I love to recreate yearly. Another was a fun fold featuring some of our designer series paper from the annual catalog. The other card was designed by using designer paper from the Mini catalog highlighting the images from the paper by using those as the card's focal point.

These designs are easy to duplicate and I hope you are inspired to recreate them with products that you have at home. Or, if you need you can just simply order the supplies to create these as seen in the video through the online store.

Let's take a look at the recording from World Card Making Day so you can see how-to for the clean & simple card idea.

Clean & Simple Design

Find a beautifully patterned paper, combine it with a sentiment and you have a beautiful, clean & simple card.


  • Card Base: 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2.
  • Designer Paper: 4 x 5-1/4, 3/4 x 4
  • Glimmer Paper: (3) 3/4 x 4
  • Basic White: 1-1/2 x 4, 4 x 5-1/4

2022-christmas-card-clean-simple-insideHere are the supplies used to make this card.  Simply click on the links to shop the online store.  Thank you!

Try this clean & simple design on your next card for any occasion.  I bet you can't make just one!

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #4

Stampin-up-2022-halloween-stars-treat-bagLet's start the week off with the next in our series of 2022 Stampin Up Halloween projects.

This one is a tiny treat bag and is just the right size to hold a few goodies for those trick-or-treaters, children, or grandchildren. It's also a good size for a small gift like a pair of earrings, a bottle of essential oil.... just something small...a little "thinking of you" gift.

So even if you don't create for Halloween, you can use this idea for any occasion. The designer paper used here is a very versatile choice. It's called the Black & White Designs 12" X 12"  Designer Series Paper [159861]. The collection of papers features basic designs in black and gray and black and white. And, although it's basically our "Halloween" paper from Stampin' Up!, it can be used anytime. For this project, I've chosen the gray and black sides of two of the prints. You can see these in the photos in this post.

2022-Stampin- up-halloween-3-dot

The closure is very simple to create with two punched holes with some ribbon threaded and tied in a nice bow. You're ready to give a sweet gift to someone special.

Let's take a look at the video so you can see how to put it together!

Here are the supplies used to create this Halloween project.

2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Crafting Kits

Christmas-Kits-LiveStampin Up has two great 2022 Christmas crafting kits currently in the online store and are only available while supplies last!

These two kits have everything you need to create some great projects that you can use this holiday season.


One is a Christmas card kit called Cozy & Bright Kit (English) [160338] with a cinnamon and orange cider theme that's usually associated with this joyous season. It would be a great invitation for an open house or it would make a fun Christmas card.  Your recipients would love it.

Although the project looks really involved, difficult to put together, and a like a really over-the-top card, it's very simple. And, as with all of our Stampin Up kits, there are step-by-step instructions with pictures which is always a plus.


The other kit is called the Christmas Gifting Kit [160342]. It's a kit with all the supplies to make nine easy tags with a little pocket card that attaches to the tag with a piece of twine.

Tuck a little cash inside, a coupon, a gift card, or anything you'd like. I think these would be great to hang on your Christmas tree with a little cash or candy tucked inside for young visitors during the holidays.

You can even use it for a Christmas cookie exchange where you can tuck the recipe in the pocket and attach the tag to your little package of baked goods.

Let's take a look at the LIVE video from Thursday night where you can see how easy the assembly can be.

Here are the links to the kits and the scissors used in the video.  Order some for your friends, too, and have a fun night of crafting!

Easy Techinque and a Fun Fold Card with Soft Seedlings

Soft-seedlings-card-baby-wipeFrom last week's YouTube Premiere, here's a fun fold card and the baby wipe technique with the Soft Seedlings stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.

This technique has been a while for a WHILE!  It's been almost that long since this has been used on a card or any project of mine!  It's so simple!  All you need is a stamp, baby wipe, ans assorted ink refills.

Baby-wipe-technique-soft-seedlingsAnd, even though you may use the same colors each time, your project will look different due to how much and the way you apply the drops of ink to the baby wipe.

Here's the recording of the Premiere from last week so you can create it yourself!  Be sure to add this beautiful Soft Seedlings stamp set to your order!

Lisa's Inklings:

2022-stampin-up-halloween-gnome-towelWe are switching it up a bit this week for the third in a series of 2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects!  This time we are looking at a cute wrap for a gift for the "young at heart".

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am always looking for cute seasonal towels or towels that coordinate with our Stampin' Up! stamp sets or bundles.  Our daughter, Kristen, has a good eye for trends, too, and she picked up a couple of gnome-themed towels at TJ Maxx last week.

These tags are simple to make and take a simple gift and turn it into something special.  Below is a different towel with three little gnomes embroidered along the bottom.
