Stampin’ Up!® Peaceful Deer Christmas Card

I am on Day 10 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’
Up!® Peaceful Deer Christmas Card. Each day of this challenge 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 fabulous 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!

Remember there is FREE shipping today, Dec 8, 2021, only on orders of $50 or more! Click on the free shipping image to go shopping in my Online Store.

And now for the Peaceful Deer Christmas card:

Oh deer! Look at this card with the Layering Diorama and the adorable deer (and bunny). This card is so much fun to create! Let me show you how to make one for yourself. I will go step-by-step.

Measurements

  • Garden Green Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Garden Green CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside), 3 x 4 1/2 inches (deer) and 2 x 3 inches (sentiment).
  • Painted Christmas 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches.
  • Pattern Party 12 x 12 inch DSP: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch of the white with black dot design (not shown).

Stamping

Start by stamping the “Merry Christmas” in Real Red Ink on the 4 x
5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Using Memento Ink, stamp the lying down deer on the lower right-hand corner. Now stamp the leaping and the standing deer, the lying deer (not shown) and the bunny onto the 3 x
4 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Note: I forgot to stamp the lying deer at this time and had to do it later.

In Garden Green Ink stamp a tall tree and the small trio of trees. Fussy cut the trees.

Finish with the stamping by using the Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment “Sending love & peace This Season” onto the 2 x 3 inch Basic White CS. I used a label die from the Potted Succulents Die set to cut the sentiment out.

Coloring the Animals

The Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers are great for these animals. The deer are colored in Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider, and Ivory. The bunny is colored in the Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Petal Pink. Don’t forget to color the lying down deer on the inside panel. Fussy cut the leaping and standing deer, lying down deer(not shown) and bunny for the front of the card. Do not cut the inside panel that has the lying down deer on it!

Creating the Diorama

The Layering Diorama Dies are pictured on the left. Use the 2nd and 4th one from the center. Use the larger one to cut the Painted Christmas DSP. Center the die then move it up to about 1/4 inch from the top. Use Sticky Tape to hold it in place. Cut with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Lay the DSP with the hole in it over the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Garden Green CS.

Place the smaller Layering Diorama Die in the center and use sticky tape to keep in place. Run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Now you have 2 layers.

Place the Garden Green CS with the hole in it over the front of the Garden Green CS card base. Trace the hole with a pencil.

Adhere the Pattern Party DSP to cover the tracing.

Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Garden Green CS with the hole in it. Adhere to the card front over the Pattern Party DSP.

Similarly, place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Painted Christmas DSP. Adhere over the top of the Garden Green CS. Now you have your layered diorama! Tip: Avoid placing dimensionals right up to the edge of the hole because you will need room to insert the trees and deer.

Adding the Animals

Insert the larger tree first. I placed one Stampin’ Dimensional toward the top to lift the tree out a bit. Next add the standing deer. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on all the animals. Add the leaping deer and the trio of trees. (Here is when I realized I did not have the lying deer! Lol!). Add the lying deer and the bunny.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Add some Bling! (Rhinestone Basic Jewels) to make stars in the sky. Tie a bow with the Real Red 3/8 inch Ruffled Ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots. Adhere the inside panel with the Merry Christmas sentiment on it to the inside of the Garden Green CS card base.

Voila! That wasn’t too bad. Looks more complicated than it really is. What a fabulous Christmas card to send to an animal lover! Or anyone who likes the outdoors.

Stampin’ Up!® Happy Holly Days Happy Christmas card

I am on Day 9 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up!® Happy Holly Days Happy Christmas Card. Each day of this challenge 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 fabulous 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! Tomorrow there is FREE shipping!

I was inspired to make this particular card by a Color Challenge that Stampin’ Up! puts out every month. This months colors are Mossy Meadow, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Gold. This Happy Holly Days Happy Christmas card shows all of these colors.

Measurements

Happy Holly Days Happy Christmas card

  • Mossy Meadow Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches. One end has been cut 1/2 inch shorter with the scalloped pattern in the Basic Borders Dies.
  • Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, 3 x 3 1/2 inches and 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches(not shown).
  • Real Red CS: 2 x 5 1/2 inches
  • Gold Brushed Metallic CS: 3 x 4 1/4 inches. Cut with the 3rd smallest Scalloped Contours Die.
  • Crumb Cake CS: 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

Stamping

Stamp the bird image in Sahara Sand Ink onto the 3 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp the holly image 3 times onto the 2 3/4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS.

Next stamp the holly image 2 times onto the corners of the 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink. Also in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamp the sentiment “Happy Christmas” onto the 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS (not shown).

Coloring With Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

I love the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers because you can blend the colors and create beautiful images. My bird doesn’t look as realistic as some, but I am satisfied with the results. I learned to use the Dark Blend first for small areas to create shadows. Then blend in the Light color. The colors here are: Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Basic Black, and the Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Real Red and Mossy Meadow.

The same procedure, Dark Blend first followed by the Light, is followed for the holly images.

Fussy cut the bird and holly. Also fussy cut the “Happy Christmas” sentiment (not shown).

Tip: Sometimes it is very difficult to cut exactly and not have any white edge. I just use the Light Blend along the outer edge to hide the white.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside sentiment and the embossed Crumb Cake CS strip to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base. Adhere the 2 x 5 1/2 inch Real Red CS to the front of the card base.

Now with Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the Gold Brushed Metallic CS scalloped rectangle to the card front. Follow by adhering the bird with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center of the back of the holly leaves. Adhere as desired under the bird. To finish, adhere the sentiment “Happy Christmas” under the Gold scalloped rectangle.

Add some Wonderful Gems to make the card front sparkle a little more.

Voila! You have a very festive Happy Christmas card!

I am submitting this card to the #sucolorchallenge and to my Glimmer Gals Team page for our color challenge as well. I hope you enjoyed Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge. See you tomorrow with card #10!

Stampin’ Up!® Sweet Little Stockings Pet Christmas Tree card

I am on Day 5 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’® Up! Sweet Little Stockings Pet Christmas Tree card. 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!

I wanted to showcase the totally cute Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper (DSP). My thought was to make a Christmas tree out of all the adorable pets. Here is what I came up with using a Fun Fold for Fun Fold Friday!

Measurements

Stampin’® Up! Sweet Little Stockings Pet Christmas Tree card

  • Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and a scrap that is at least 1 inch wide.
  • Old Olive CS: 2 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, 1 7/8 x 4 3/8 inches and two at 7/8 x 1 7/8 inches.

Cutting out the Pet Images

Here are all the awesome Sweet Stockings DSP designs. (Buy some HERE).

These are the adorable pets for the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Pet Christmas Tree card that I fussy cut from the Sweet Stockings DSP. The puppies, the kitten and the mouse in the stocking come from the design with all the little stockings.

Making the Fun Fold Card Base

I actually struggled with this one. I believe I finally came up with easy-to-follow instructions. If not, please leave me a comment with any suggestions you may have. Here is the template.

Scoring the Evening Evergreen CS card base. (Score=Dashed lines/ Cut=Solid line)

  1. Score at 4 1/2 inches from 2 inches to the top.
  2. Next score at 5 1/2 inches from 2 inches down to the bottom.
  3. Finish scoring at 9 inches and then 10 inches from 2 inches to the top.

Turn the card base and cut from 1 inch to 6 1/2 inches at 2 inches from the left side.

Fold as shown in the left-hand photo. Use your Bone Folder to make the folds nice and crisp.

Stamping

Before you stamp onto the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS, remove a 1 x 2 inch piece from the upper right-hand corner. Use this piece to stamp the larger present in Memento ink. On the remainder of the 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White CS use Memento ink to stamp a cascade of the small presents. Stamp the sentiment “Santa Paws is Coming to Town” in the center. On the scrap of Basic White CS stamp the sentiment “Peace Joy & Kisses”. I had to stamp it twice to get a dark stamp.

Color the presents with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Adhere the piece with the “Santa Paws” sentiment to the inside of the Evening Evergreen CS card base.

Creating the Card Front

Adhere the Old Olive CS card pieces as shown.

Building the Pet Christmas Tree

Start on the right by placing the dog with the wreath about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Adhere the little dog in the sweater so he looks as though he is standing on the black dog’s back. Add a second dog in the sweater to the panel behind.

Adhere the rest of the cute pets stacking the next one on the lower pet’s back. When the card is open it will look like the photo on the left. The right-hand photo shows the card folded up.

Build the left side starting with the Golden Retriever wrapped in Christmas lights. Add the cats and mice. Top it off with the cute little puppy. Add the Christmas ornaments. Now adhere the large colored present with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the bottom left-hand corner. Finish by adhering the sentiment to the large present.

Add some Wonderful Gems and Voila! you have an adorable Sweet Little Stockings Pet Christmas Tree card for your favorite pet-lover!

I am so glad you stopped by for the 5th day of my 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge! I hope you will come by for tomorrow’s card! Leave me a comment as to what you think about my first 5 days of Christmas cards. Which is your favorite card?

Cardz4Guyz Challenge #278- Things With Tails and Stampin’ Up!® Turtle Friends with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

I have such an exciting and fun card to share today! The cute Turtle Friends stamp set and Turtle Punch come together with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique for this cute card.

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

What you will need to do this technique is 99% Isopropyl Alcohol, a plastic dish for the alcohol, a paint brush, a straw, vellum card stock and the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I recommend the Stampin’ Up! brand of vellum because it is thicker than the other brand I tried. The thicker vellum doesn’t curl as much when it dries.

I cut my vellum card stock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Using a light, medium and dark color of Stampin’ Blends Marker, I randomly colored in blotches to fill the paper. Here I am using Dark Fresh Freesia, Dark Highland Heather and Dark Blackberry Bliss. (For the turtle card, I used Dark Pool Party, Dark Bermuda Bay and Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.)

I filled in the spaces for this piece with the Dark Misty Moonlight. Next, dip the paint brush in the dish with the alcohol in it, and then dab it onto the vellum card stock. You can blow through the straw to help the alcohol spread, making neat patterns with the ink. I used my Stampin’ Up! Heat Tool to spread the alcohol and also to dry it. Use the low setting so you don’t melt the vellum.

When the vellum card stock is dried, use a glue stick or spread the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue in a thin continuous layer on the back. Adhere to a piece of Basic White Card Stock. Now you just get the other basic pieces for a card together and Viola! you have a fun and cool card!

Back to the Turtle Card

The Scalloped Contour Dies make the waves on the Vellum Alcohol Technique card piece, as well as on a 5 x 1 1/2 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock piece. These were adhered together slightly layered, then adhered to a 5 x 3 3/4 inch Pool Party Card Stock embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Next, the Pool Party card piece was adhered to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock. To finish, adhere the Misty Moonlight/Pool Party card piece to the front of a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Basic White Card Stock card base.

Now for the turtles. The images were stamped onto Basic White Card Stock in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Dark Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay and Light Misty Moonlight. Bermuda Bay ink was used to stamp the turtle’s shell. The little bird and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment were stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I used a scrap of the Alcohol Technique card piece on the inside.

Add a few blue rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! You have a fun and cute birthday card for your favorite little guy!
