Stampin’ Up!® Peaceful Cabin Masculine Christmas Card

I am on Day 6 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’® Up! Peaceful Cabin Masculine Christmas card. Each day my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge goes until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog, and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

The Peaceful Cabin Masculine Christmas Card is being submitted to the Cardz4Guyz Card Challenge #285 Shades of Brown. Stop by the Cardz4Guyz blog to get more ideas on cards for guys.

Measurements

Peaceful Cabin Masculine Christmas Card

  • Early Espresso Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Early Espresso CS: 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches
  • Soft Suede CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches
  • Very Vanilla CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside), 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches (front) and 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches. Note: the front is slightly smaller than the inside.
  • Early Espresso 1/4 inch Faux Suede Trim: 8 inches

How to Use the Blending Brushes

First place your 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inch Very Vanilla CS card piece on a scrap of paper. Apply slight pressure as you move the brush in a circular motion on the Crumb Cake ink pad. Tap onto the scrap paper. Then apply light pressure and move in a circular motion along the edge of the card piece. Start light and go slow. You can go over the area until it is as dark as you desire.

I wanted the very edge to be a little darker than the border of the card piece. You can hold the card piece up and scrape the Blending Brush on the very edge to accomplish this look.

To finish up with the Blending Brushes, stamp the sentiment “May You Enjoy The Peace of this beautiful season” in Early Espresso ink onto the 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Punch the sentiment out with the Elegant Tag Punch. Use the Blending Brush with the Crumb Cake ink to blend the ink around the edges of the Elegant Punch.

Stamping

Stamp the cabin in Soft Suede ink onto the 4 x 51/4 inch Very Vanilla CS that has been shaded with the Blending Brush. Use the Blender Pen to smooth out the color on the cabin.

The tree stamp in the Peaceful Cabin stamp set is a group of 3 trees on one stamp. I cut my trees apart so that I would have more flexibility in using the trees.

Masking

Stamp the cabin onto some sticky paper and fussy cut. Lay it over the cabin on the Very Vanilla CS. Using the Soft Suede Ink, stamp some trees around the cabin.

I used the single stamp of the tree to stamp a tree on the right side of the cabin.

Sometimes when you stamp over another piece of paper, the image doesn’t take near the edge of the paper. Use the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to make the tree image complete.

More Stamping

Stamp the small snowflakes in Crumb Cake ink around the cabin. In the Snowman Season stamp set, there is a group of snowflakes. I stamped these in Crumb Cake ink, Stamping Off once, around the border of the card piece.

Fill in with the small snowflakes as you desire.

Stamp the little dog (or fox) in Crumb Cake. Use the Blender Pen to smooth out the color.

The 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS is the inside of the card. Use the Blending Brush and the Crumb Cake Ink to blend some shadow in the upper left and lower right-hand corner. Stamp some trees in Soft Suede Ink in the lower right-hand corner. Use the small snowflakes and Crumb Cake Ink in both corners. Stamp the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from the Snowman Season in Early Espresso Ink.

Assembling the Card

Punch an Elegant Tag from both the 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Early Espresso and 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Soft Suede CS. Cut the Early Espresso tag and the Soft Suede tag in half. Use the Soft Suede CS on the top of the back of the Very Vanilla CS tag. Adhere the bottom half of the Early Espresso tag to the bottom of the Very Vanilla CS tag.

Make a loop with the 1/4 inch Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and adhere to the back to the back of the Elegant Tag with Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere the Very Vanilla CS with the “Merry Christmas” to the inside of the Early Espresso CS card base. For the card front, first adhere the cabin Very Vanilla CS to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Soft Suede CS. Then adhere the cabin piece to the front of the card base. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Elegant Tag sentiment to the left side of the card front.

Voila! You have a masculine Christmas card for your favorite guy! Stop by the Cardz4Guyz to see more masculine cards.

Stampin’ Up!® Classic Cloche Dome Christmas Shaker Card

I am on Day 4 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Each day my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge is until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Classic Cloche Dome Christmas Shaker Card. The card shaker is made with the Cloche Dome and the Subtle Shimmer Sequins.

Measurements

Classic Cloche Dome Christmas Shaker Card

  • Real Red Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches
  • Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches
  • One Cloche Shaker Dome #156387 (Order HERE)
  • A more complete supply list is at the end of the blog

The Cloche Dome can be used with two different stamp sets- the Classic Cloche and the Sweets & Treats! Click on either one to go directly to my Online Store and start shopping.

Stamping

First use the Cloche Dies to cut out the space for the dome. Then use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment under the dome.

This little image of the birds in the dome is actually a 3-Step Stamp. First- stamp the outline of the birds and branches in Memento ink. Second- use the stamp with just the branches with Garden Green Ink. Third- use the stamp with the body of the birds and stamp in Real Red Ink. (I really struggled to get these to line up. I ended up using the Stamparatus because I could place the 2nd and 3rd stamps more accurately.) Alternatively, you could always color in the image using the Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stamp the 3-Step Stamp of the bird image on the lower right-hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Add the sentiment in Real Red Ink.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the stamped card piece to the inside of the Real Red CS card base.

Adhere the Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the card front. Then lay but DO NOT ADHERE both of the pieces with the dome. Adhere the dome piece with the birds stamped on it ONLY. Pull the sentiment piece away.

Adding the Dome and Sequins

I like to place a few of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the bird card piece. The sequins will fall to the bottom of the plastic dome when the card is upright. Having a few rhinestones allows the sparkle to stay. Now add about a teaspoon of the Subtle Shimmer Sequins onto the center of the bird card piece. (In hindsight, I could have added about 2x the amount of sequins that I did).

Peel the protective cover off of the inside of the Cloche Dome. Carefully place it over the bird card piece and press firmly to adhere.

Now peel the protective cover off of the front of the Cloche Dome. Apply adhesive to the back of the sentiment card piece. Carefully position this piece over the Cloche Dome. Press firmly to adhere.

Add a bow made from the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon. Voila! The card is finished. Shake it to see how fabulous this shaker card is!

I also have a blog about a Thanksgiving Shaker Card made with the Sweets & Treats stamp set. Check it out HERE.

I really hope you give shaker cards a try. It is such a fun alternative to the standard card!

Stampin’ Up!® Bright Baubles Gold Emboss Christmas Card

I am on Day 2 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. I will be blogging a new holiday card each day until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards!

This Stampin’ Up! Bright Baubles Gold Emboss Christmas Card is rather simple to make with the instructions that follow. The Bright Baubles stamp set is just fabulous! The ornaments are very ornate and elegant.

To be able to heat emboss you will need: Stampin’ Emboss Powder-Metallic, Versamark Ink and the Heat Tool which are found in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. These supplies are pictured below with links to my Online Store.

Measurements

  • Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 5 1/4 x 4 inches
  • Blackberry Bliss CS card base: 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches.
  • Blackberry Bliss CS card front: 5 1/4 x 4 inches.

Stamping

Stamp the sentiment first with Blackberry Bliss ink. Be sure to try it out on a scrap piece of paper to check the alignment. Follow by stamping one of each of the gorgeous ornaments. Finish with the sparkles on either side of the sentiment. Set aside.

Embossing

It takes practice to be able to get great images with the Gold Emboss Powder on a dark card stock. I strongly recommend purchasing an Anti-Static Powder bag or pouch. This helps prevent the emboss powder from sticking to other parts of the card piece, like to the oils from fingerprints. There are many anti-static pouches available from different suppliers. Also have a microfiber cloth on hand to get the powder off after embossing.

Start the embossing process by applying the anti-static powder to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Blackberry Bliss CS. Next stamp the image of the larger ornament in Versamark. Tap out some of the Gold Emboss Powder and move it around so it sticks to the Versamark. Take care not to touch it. Use the Heat Tool until all of the powder has melted. Follow by stamping the second ornament, applying the Gold Emboss Powder and using the Heat Tool. Repeat the process for the “JOY” sentiment.

Again repeat the embossing process for the sparkles. See how hazy the card piece looks? After the Gold Emboss Powder has cooled, use a microfiber cloth to gently rub off the anti-static powder.

Adhere the Gold Embossed Blackberry Bliss CS to the front of the Blackberry Bliss card base. Adhere the stamped Very Vanilla CS card piece to the inside of the card base.

Add some Gilded Gems and Voila! you have a gorgeous elegant handmade Christmas card!

I hope you enjoy trying this card for yourself. I actually ended up making several. The other emboss powders in the Metallics set are silver and copper. Try them out on different colors of card stock to see how fabulous they are!

The complete list of supplies will be at the end of the blog.

Stampin’ Up!® Punch Art Gnome Using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and Stitched Triangle Dies

Greetings! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day. I have a little Stampin’ Up! Punch Art Gnome to brighten your day if you need it! This card is for The Paper Players Challenge PP 568 CAS(Clean and Simple) Gnomes or Fairies.

My Gnome Punch Art Card

I did not have any stamps with gnomes or fairies. I decided to try to make a gnome with Punch Art. Punch Art used to be the art of making images using the Stampin’ Up! punches. However, right now there are not many punches in basic shapes like circles, squares and triangles. But there are many shapes in the Stampin’ Up! Dies that can be used!

The face and the boots are made from the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. The black lines are where I cut the punch. The little pompom for the gnome hat is from the Pierced Blooms Dies. The remaining pieces are different sizes of triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies. The face is Blushing Bride Card Stock (CS). For the hat I used the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (DSP). The boots are made with Early Espresso CS and the body is made with Soft Succulent CS. The beard and the pompom are in Basic White CS.

Assembly

First place the triangle for the body on the card front to be able to position the boots. After adhering the boots, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the body. Trim off the very tip of the triangle for the body.

Slide the white beard triangle under the “nose”. Then adhere the hat. Position the Stampin’ Dimensionals as shown.

Adhere the face with the beard and hat over the body. Stamp your greeting. I used the greeting from the Joyful Life stamp. The greeting is stamped in Soft Succulent ink.

Adhere the card front to a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the Christmas Tidings DSP. Finish the card by adhering this piece to the front of an 11 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White CS card base.

Voila! A cute gnome is created for a whimsical holiday card! Stop by The Paper Players Challenge PP568 to see more cards made in the “Clean and Simple” style with gnomes or fairies.

I hope this card has brightened your day a little if you needed it. Stop by tomorrow for a 3D Thanksgiving shaker card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cloche Shaker Dome!

Stampin’ Up!® Snowflake Wishes Christmas Card

Welcome to my blog today! I have a card that I am submitting to the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #284 Gingham, Checks or Plaid. I had a lot of fun with this card. I wanted to use the Wonderful Snowflakes which are laser-cut snowflakes from an iridescent white paper. They are so beautiful!

I also used the So Many Snowflakes Dies to cut smaller snowflakes from the scrap left behind after punching the Wonderful Snowflakes out. Stampin’ Up! colors used are Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

The Snowflake Wishes stamp set has many snowflakes in different sizes. It also has a great sentiment that goes along with the snowflakes-“May Your Season Sparkle”. The sentiment inside is “Snowflake Wishes for a Merry Christmas”.

I made my own plaid by taking the black and white gingham from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper and drawing a Bermuda Bay line over the center of the white column. I used the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Alcohol maker on some of the the grey gingham squares to add more color.

The scalloped rectangle is a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. And I added just a little Bling! with the Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

Fun Fold Friday- Stampin’ Up!® Artistically Inked Thank You Card

Join me today to make this gorgeous Artistically Inked Thank You card!

It is gradually getting cooler here in Arizona, but I am not quite ready to show Christmas cards yet. Today I have a Fun Fold that I had my Stamping Gems Team members make as a Mystery Stamping activity.

Fun Fold Friday is on!

Mystery Stamping is a fun way to make cards together. You give the clues one by one. Each person picks the paper and stamp set they want to use. All of the cards are uniquely different. Usually you do not show the finished card until the end.

Clue #1 Supplies

  1. Color Card Stock (CS) Color A: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with score lines at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches. (This is the card base and it is in portrait orientation.) You also need a 3 x 2 inch piece.
  2. Color CS Color B: choose a color to coordinate with Color A. Two 4 x 2 5/8 inches.
  3. Designer Series Paper (DSP) to coordinate with the Color A and Color B CS. Two 3 3/4 x 2 3/8 inches.
  4. Basic White CS: 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
  5. A sentiment stamp to fit inside the 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Basic White CS card piece.
  6. Images to make a border around the sentiment and the inside of the card.
  7. Coordinating ink, embellishments, adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Clue #2

Stamp your sentiment onto the 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Stamp images around the sentiment.

Clue #3

Stamp the images around the outside edge of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS. Leave the center blank so one could write a note.

Clue #4

Adhere the sentiment to the 3 x 2 inch Color A CS. Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS to the center panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Color A CS.

Clue #5

Adhere the DSP to the Color B CS. Repeat for the other pieces. You should have two identical card pieces.

Clue #6

Bring the 2 side panels together so they meet in the center of the card. Apply adhesive to the back of the left half of one of the card pieces with the DSP on it. Adhere this to the top of the left-hand panel. Now apply adhesive to the back of the right side of the second DSP card piece. Adhere it to the bottom of the right-hand panel.

Clue # 7

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the center of the upper DSP card piece.

Clue #8

Use embellishments as desired.

Voila! That is the Mystery Stamping Fun Fold using the Artistically Inked stamp set and Expressions in Ink DSP! The Mystery Stamping is a really fun way for my Stamping Gems Team and me to stamp together as part of our monthly team meeting.

Product List

I hope you have some time to do some crafting this weekend! I find stamping and card making is so peaceful and relaxing.

Bye for now!

Stampin’ Up!® Wonderful Snowflakes Season’s Greetings

Although I am not quite ready for Christmas cards, I couldn’t resist using the Wonderful Snowflakes as part of my card for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP567.

Here is my card:

This is a Slim Line card. The card base measures 8 1/2 x 7 inches with a score line at 3 1/2 inches. The scalloped rectangle in the background is not a Stampin’ Up! product, but I hear tell that there are some Slim Line Dies in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog!

The Wonderful Snowflakes are iridescent! The greeting from the Christmas To Remember stamp set is embossed with Silver Emboss Powder. The embossed snowflakes behind the sentiment are from the Time of Giving stamp set. The ribbon is the White 1/4 inch Crinkled Seam Binding in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-22 Annual Catalog.

I added a lot of Bling! using the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. There are 16 rhinestones on this card!

I love to enter The Paper Player Challenges because I need to push myself to imagine and think outside of my usual modus operandi. I find that I create cards in a new and exciting way.

Voila! That is it for today! Thanks for stopping by. Stop by The Paper Players and see the other entries to the Color Challenge PP567 HERE

I have an exciting card to share for Bruno and Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop today that was a Mystery Stamping I participated in. I will explain more about that in a minute.

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! The Demonstrator Training Program is for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators all over the world who are working towards bettering their business. Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration! If you wish to become a Stampin’ up! Demonstrator please let me know by commenting on this post or sending me an email at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com Now for the card:

Mystery Stamping is when you are given the measurements for the pieces and then you get “clues” on how to put the card together without knowing what the card looks like. So fun!!

*This card is compliments of Lorraine Masters-Green, who I believe got the idea from Sharon Armstrong.

Clue #1 Card Recipe & Supplies:

1. Colored Card Stock (CS) Color A (ex. Misty Moonlight): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches, 4 x 5 1/4 inches, and 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inches.

2. Colored CS Color B (ex. Just Jade): 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches

3. Basic White CS: 3 1/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches, and a scrap for the sentiment and image.

4. Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 coordinating pieces 1 x 1 inch (can be different or 2 of one pattern and 3 of another). My DSP is from the Pattern Party DSP in the Annual Catalog.

5. Sentiment stamp and punch or die to cut it out.

6. Image stamp or dies to cut an image from DSP to fit on 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inch Color A CS piece. I used Simply Succulents for my image and my sentiment.

7. Ink, embossing folder, adhesive, dimensionals. and embellishments.

Clue # 2- The card is in a portrait orientation.

The remaining clues are the directions on how to put the pieces together. The fun part is that you don’t know what the card is supposed to look like until you are done! It is a blast!

If you need the remaining clues for this card, just leave a comment or send me an email and I will send them to you.

Voila! After you follow all of the clues you have a fun Thank You card. Since I had so much fun making this card, I decided to use it as a thank you note to my September customers.

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® International Blog Highlights Gallery- October 2021- Love of Leaves and Color & Contour Fall Thank You card

Hello and welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts today! I have a beautiful fall card made with Stampin’ Up!® Love of Leaves and Color & Contour stamp sets. Stampin’ Up! has several colors that are perfect for fall! You will find everything you need in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. In this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by people from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the Vote For Me button at the end of this blog. Please stop by and vote for my card.

I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, live in the US, and would like a copy of the catalog, please send a request to my email: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com. I would love to help you get started on stamping and making you own cards!

Making the card-Stamping

The first step in making this card is to stamp all of the leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set onto Basic White Card Stock (CS). The Stampin’ Up! ink colors for the leaves are: Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze. Next stamp the flowers from the Color & Contour stamp set onto Basic White CS. The outline of the flowers is inked in Cajun Craze. The flower color is Mango Melody.

Coordinating Dies

Now you can use the coordinating dies for the Love of Leaves stamp set- the Stitched Leaves Dies. These dies both cut and emboss! You can see the embossed stitching on each of the leaves. The upper edge of the background is embossed with one of the dies in this set.

To make the flowers more 3D, I used the round end of the cap on the Take Your Pick Tool to apply gentle pressure to the back of the flowers. This makes them more puffy.

Arranging the Pieces

Now that you have all the pieces, you can arrange them how you like. First adhere the Mango Melody background onto a Cajun Craze CS card base. Lay the leaves down on the card front first until you like the look. Then add the flowers. Next, adhere everything in place. Add the Genial Gems as desired to the flower center for extra sparkle.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto a 1/2 inch Basic White CS strip. Add the sentiment to your card.

Voila! You have a beautiful fall Thank You card! Feel free to decorate the inside of the card too!
