Stampin’ Up!® Stars Are Shining Christmas Card

I am on Day 11 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Stars Are Shining Christmas Card. For the last 10 days my blog has focused on a new holiday card showcasing a new stamp set each day. The challenge ends with tomorrow’s card. If you would like to see the whole Gallery of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge you can see it on my Welcome page HERE. Check out all the fabulous products I used that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog. Be sure to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Be sure to order as soon as you know what you would like. Many of the products in the 2021 July-Dec Mini Catalog are retiring. Click on the image above to see the list. Many are already SOLD OUT. There is also a delay the shipping process. Order today so you will have time to make your cards!

Joy to the World! Today’s card is a simple one. After creating the Layering Diorama with the Peaceful Deer yesterday, I needed an easier card!

Measurements

Stars Are Shining Christmas Card

  • Real Red Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches.
  • Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
  • Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 1/2 x 4 inches.
  • Real Red 3/8 inch Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon: 6 1/2 inches.

Cut the Tidings of Christmas DSP into 2 triangles. Place one triangle over the top of one of the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Use a pencil to draw a line at the border of the DSP. Remove the DSP and set aside for later.

Before you start stamping, figure out where you would like the ornaments to be. Place the stamps on the paper. Include the sentiment “Joy to the World” in the lower right-hand corner. Use a pencil to mark the center of the top of each ornament.

You will have three dots where the string for the ornament needs to end. Stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink. Then stamp each of the three strings for the ornaments.

Start by stamping the middle ornament. Add the other two ornaments.

On the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS stamp the sentiment “The Stars are Shining Brightly”. Stamp some of the stars on the side. I stamped once, then turned the stamp 180 degrees, applied more Memento Ink, and stamped a second time.

Coloring the Ornaments

I absolutely love the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers but the Stampin’ Write Markers have a finer tip. Color in some of the design with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. Finish up by using the Real Red marker.

Adhere the Tidings of Christmas DSP triangle to the top left corner.

Adhere the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the front panel with Mini Glue Dots. Take care on the upper right-hand corner to have the ribbon to the left of the corner. Wrap the ribbon around to the back and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the excess off of the top corner ribbon.

Adhere the ornament card piece to the front of the Real Red CS card base. Now adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.

Now for some Bling! Add some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Add as many as you want! The more, the more sparkle!

Voila! A nice and simple but totally Bling! Stars are Shining Christmas Card! You could really have some fun with this one. Try different colors and patterns of DSP.

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.

Stamped on Wood Christmas Ornaments

Hello! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving Holiday. Now it’s time to get ready for Christmas. I have a church Bazaar coming up so I am making a few things to sell.

I made these fun wooden Christmas ornaments. Some of the stamps are retired, but there are many images that are current that will work too. I bought the wooden pieces on Amazon. They came with the twine and a hole drilled in the top.

I just stamped on them, then used a glitter spray paint followed by a clear spray paint to further decorate the ornament.

The current Stampin’ Up! stamp sets I used are: Merry Moose, Christmas Gleaming and Snowman Season.

I’ll be back next week with the usual post. I just needed to get myself ready for the Bazaar this week. Happy Crafting!
