Working with the Orchid Oasis Ink

  1. Fold the Highland Heather card base on the score line. Place on a scratch paper.
  2. Position the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask over the front panel of the card base. Hold in place with sticky tape.
  3. Use the Blending Brush and the Orchid Oasis Ink to gradually apply ink in a circle slightly left of center. Remove the mask.
  4. Place the Basic White inside card piece on the scratch paper. Position the mask and hold in place with the sticky tape.
  5. Now use the Blending Brush to gradually apply ink to the upper right and lower left corner of the Basic White cs inside.
  6. Remove the mask and rinse it off with water. Set aside to dry.
  7. Stamp the “THANK YOU” sentiment on the end of the 2 1/2″ x
    8 1/2″ (6.4cm x 20.9cm) Basic White cs.
  8. Next stamp “I really appreciate You” on the Basic White inside card piece.
  9. Adhere the Basic White inside to the inside panel of the Highland Heather card base.

Timeless Arrangements Dies

  1. Diecut the following pieces from the Basic White cs with the “Thank You” stamped on it. The Dies are shown as well as the cut pieces. You will need four of the longer leaf branch.
  1. Die cut the Thank You with the medium sized rectangle die.
  2. Start gluing the leaf branches together on a Silicon Craft Sheet to make a longer branch to place over the thank you sentiment.
  3. Start with one long branch and several short branches to build the more full leaf branch to place under the sentiment.
  4. Use a Small Blending Brush to gradually add ink to the flowers as shown below.
  1. Glue the flowers to the top of the leaf branches.

Putting it altogether

  1. Position the leaves & flowers on the card front with the thank you sentiment in place but not adhered.
  2. Glue the leaves & flowers to the card front.
  3. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the thank you sentiment.
  4. Now for the Bling!
  5. Tie a small bow with the beautiful Metallic Ribbon. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Dimensional.
  6. Add the awesome Orchid Oasis In Color Pearls. I used 5 pearls close to the leaf arrangements.
  7. If desired, use the marvelous Wink of Stella on the flowers for more sparkle!
  8. That is it!

Stampin’® Up! Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card

I am on Day 7 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up!® Great Tidings Religious 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 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!

Many of the products in the Stampin’ Up! July-December Mini Catalog will be retiring at the end of December. If you really want something, order now because products are “while supplies last”. Get more information on the “Last Chance” products HERE

I really like how colorful this Great Tidings Religious Christmas card turned out to be. The Wise Men Tidings Dies and the Gold Brushed Metallic Card Stock really make this card shine!


Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 4 x 4 inches, and a 1/2 inch strip that is at least 3 inches long.
  • Gold Brushed Metallic CS: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches.


Use Memento Ink to stamp one each of the Three Kings onto the 4 x 4 inch Basic White CS.

Use Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment “Wise men still seek Him” onto a 1/2 x 3 inch strip of Basic White CS. Also stamp, in Night of Navy Ink, the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment “Sending Peace & Joy to you”, the 3 Gifts and the Star.

Use Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color the Three Kings. For skin color, I used the Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider, and Ivory. Additionally, I used the Light and Dark of: Bermuda Bay, Just Jade, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss and Night of Navy for the Kings’ dress. I shadowed the turban with Light Smoky Slate. Later I used Dark Poppy Parade for the gem in the turban and the jewel on the cloak of the middle King. Note: These are not the traditional colors for the Three Kings. Going left to right is Gaspar, Balthazar and Melchior.

Three Wise Men Dies and Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

The Three Wise Men Dies really help make the Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card shine. First die cut the Dome, placing the top of the die about 3/4 inch from the top edge and using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Use the dies for the Star and the Town of Bethlehem to diecut from the left over dome piece. Save the remainder of the dome cut out for future use. Tip: This is a great way to make the Gold Brushed Metallic CS last longer- use every scrap!

Use the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder in the Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine for the texture on the 5 3/8 x 4 1/ 8 inch Gold Brushed Metallics CS card piece.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside card piece to the inside panel of the Night of Navy CS card base.

Start the front of the card by adhering the Hammered Metal Gold CS card piece to the front panel of the Night of Navy CS card base. Next adhere the Star with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Adhere the Little Town of Bethlehem flat to the background. Add the Three Kings using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finish the card by trimming the sentiment and adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add one large Gilded Gem to the center of the Star.

Voila! You have made a fabulous Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card!

For my family today is the second Sunday of Advent. Time is moving by so quickly! My son and husband are out to get the tree. I still need to wrap a bunch of packages to mail tomorrow. It is such a wonderful, busy time of year!

I hope you have a Blessed Day!

Stampin’ Up!® Tree Angle for the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #259- Traditional Christmas

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a crafty weekend!

Today’s card satisfies two challenges: my own 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge and the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #259-Traditional Christmas.

I designed this card with a traditional color combination and slightly modern Christmas trees from the Stampin’ Up!® Tree Angle stamp set.

The Tree Angle stamp set is from the 2020 August-December Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. Tuesday December 8 is the start of the Giant End of Year Close Out Sale! I listed the retiring products and discounts which you can download here:

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, 3 x 5 inches to die cut a stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and also to cut 2 stitched triangles from the Stitched Triangles Dies; and Red Foil Sheet: two strips at 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches to die cut the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Using the Shaded Spruce ink stamp the sentiment “Joy & Cheer” onto the Stitched Rectangle Die Cut. For the Stitched Triangle Die-Cut Christmas Tree I tried both stamping first then die-cutting and die-cutting then stamping. Lining up the stamp on the cut Stitched Triangle is easier.

Stamp the inside of the Whisper White CS card base with the sentiment “Happy wishes to you and yours” in Shaded Spruce ink. Stamp the small group of ornaments in the upper right-hand corner first in Shaded Spruce ink, then in Real Red ink. Stamp the smaller triangle in Real Red ink on to the smaller Stitched Triangle Die-Cut.

Adhere the Red Foil 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch strips to the back of the Whisper White CS embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I use the Silicon Sheet to be sure the excess glue won’t stick to my table. Adhere this card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Red Foil stitched circle and stitched rectangle with the sentiment stamped on it.

To adhere the green Christmas Tree I applied two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the bottom and used the Multipurpose Glue on the top.

Adhere the red Christmas tree to the card front with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You guessed it-time for Bling!

I used the pick side of the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the Star Designer Elements and the putty side to transfer the small silver circle sequins in the Snowflake Sequins. I wanted to add a little snow to the snowflake background with the silver sequins.

And Viola! you have a Traditional Christmas card to send to your favorite guy!
