Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- December 2020- Winter Thank You Cards

Thank you for joining me for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! I am so excited that you could join us today for this blog hop! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration!

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. I am a Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here at Theresa’s Treasures or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. Enjoy!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers. These are thank you notes to send for anyone who orders during the month of December.

This thank you card is super easy and quick to make. You will need to emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White Card Stock (CS) with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Next punch a bunch of trees with the Pine Tree Punch from the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). The last piece is the “thanks” which is cut out with the Well Written Dies. The colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Real Red.

I adhered the trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered with Tombow. An afterthought was that you could cut the sentiment out with an Adhesive Sheet which would make it easier to adhere it to the card front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. If you would like to purchase the products to make this card, just select from the supply list below the list of blog participants.

Stampin’ Up!® Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas Card

Today is December 5th, the 5th day of my 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge and my daughters birthday! Happy Birthday Kathryn!

Today’s card is a Fun Fold using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch which are found in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.

This festive Fun Fold has textured pine trees made with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. If this is not available to you, I did make another version with plain pine trees which was also very festive.

Measurements: Thick Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 4 1/2 x 5 inches with a score line at 2 1/2 inches, 1 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches and a 3 1/4 x 6 inch piece that has been embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder; Cherry Cobbler CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and Classic Christmas 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches.

Stamp the sentiment “Merry Christmas” in Cherry Cobbler ink onto the 1 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS. Cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. Note: Be sure to use some padding under the Photopolymer (see-through) stamps like the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a Stampin’ Up! catalog to get the best stamped image.

Fold the 4 1/2 x 5 inch Whisper White CS at the 2 1/2 inch score line, and stamp the Christmas tree and sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on the inside.

Line up the Pine Tree Punch with the grain on the Greenery Embossed Whisper White CS and punch out the pine trees. You will need three.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Cherry Cobbler CS to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch Thick Whisper White CS. Adhere the 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Classic Christmas DSP to the front of the stamped 4 1/2 x 5 inch Whisper White CS.

I have found it very useful to cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips. To make the sentiment sturdy, I used 2 strips on the back, leaving space on the top so that the Fun Fold card can slide under the top of the oval.

Adhere the Fun Fold card so that a very small bit of the edge slides under the oval sentiment. You want it to be securely closed, but easy to open.

Adhere the embossed pine trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals or strips of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Place one on each end, then add the middle pine tree.

This makes a very nice simple card. However, there is always Bling! that can be added to step it up a bit!

First I added a little sparkle to the trees with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. Unfortunately I could not get the sparkle to show up on the photos. In real life it looks very pretty and glistening.

Second, I added the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a little color and decorate the pine trees. I used the yellow rhinestone as a star on each tree, then used the red and green rhinestones for ornaments. Note: Use a toothpick or the Take Your Pick tool to easily move the rhinestones from the acetate to your card.

Viola! You have a unique festive Fun Fold Christmas card to send off!

Thank you for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Blog today. I am having so much fun with the 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge. I challenge you to do your own 15-Day Challenge and make your own cards!

Stampin’ Up!® Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Hello! Happy November! I can’t believe how fast this year is going for me! I am showing a Christmas card today because I am worried I will not be able to create and send all of my Christmas cards on time. It is good to get started early. However, I am not forgetting Thanksgiving. I plan to do a few Thanksgiving cards in the blogs over the next few weeks.

This is a fun and simple Christmas card using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, the Pine Tree Punch and the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). You will find the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The ‘Tis The Season DSP is in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! August-December Mini Catalog. Let’s get started!

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches and 2 1/4 x 4 inches; Real Red CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and ‘Tis The Season DSP 2 x 5 1/4 inches and 4 different designs at 2 1/4 ix 6 inches.

Using Garden Green ink, stamp the sentiment “Merry Christmas” on the 2 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS leaving space around the sentiment so you can punch it out. Stamp the sentiment “Hoping that your busy year…” on the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base.

Use the Everyday Label Punch to punch out the sentiment “Merry Christmas”. Set aside.

Get together the Pine Tree Punch and the 4 ‘Tis The Season DSP strips that measure 2 1/4 x 6 inches.

Punch out one Pine Tree from each strip of ‘Tis The Season DSP.

Adhere the 2 x 5 1/4 inch strip of the ‘Tis The Season DSP to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Real Red CS. Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base at the 5 1/2 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to make the fold crisp. Adhere the Real Red/DSP card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.

Position all of the Pine Trees and the sentiment on the card front. Adhere two of the Pine Trees flat.

Adhere the third Pine Tree and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the fourth Pine Tree to the inside of the card.

Now for the Bling! The Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Star Designer Elements can both be found in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Place a star over each tree and then scatter the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Viola! You have a fun and simple Christmas card!

O’ Christmas Tree

I know Halloween just barely passed, and Thanksgiving is on the way, but I am itching to start on my Christmas cards. I send out about 45 cards each year, and I make each one. I am also doing a church Bazaar on the first weekend in December and will need cards to sell there. So, let’s get started!

This is a Merry little card with a forest of Christmas trees made from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I used two Stampin’ Up! punches, the Pine Tree Punch from Holiday Catalog and the Twinkle Builder from the Annual Catalog.

The sentiment “Christmas Wishes” is from the Toile Christmas stamp set. I plan on showing you a card with the cardinal in a later post.

Measurements: Whisper White: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base scored at 4 1/4 inches and a 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch strip for the sentiment; Shaded Spruce: 5 1/4 x 4 inches; Wrapped in Plaid DSP: 7 different patterns in strips 6 x 2 1/4 inches; and Gold Foil: 4 x 1 inches.

Side Note: My blog posts are geared toward the Beginner Stamper. My goal is to show the Beginner Stamper how you can make beautiful cards that are fairly straight forward to put together. I will use Stamps primarily. I will also use Punches, but I do not use the Big Shot or any framelits or dies. Any comments you can give me to help accomplish the goal of keeping this post for the Beginner Stamper would be appreciated. Please let me know if the instructions are not clear enough.

Use Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Up! ink to stamp the sentiment “Christmas Wishes” onto the 3 1/4 x 1 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White cardstock.

Use your Paper Snips to fussy cut the banner.

Now punch one tree from each of the 7 different designs of Wrapped in Plaid DSP.

Use the Gold Foil in the Twinkle Builder punch to make 7 stars.

Fold the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White card base at the 4 1/4 inch scoreline and use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold.

Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Shaded Spruce to the front of the card base. Tip: I prefer the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue because it allows you to straighten out the piece for a few seconds after you adhere it. If you use the Snail Adhesive Tape runner, once it is stuck, it is stuck!

Adhere 2 of the trees to the upper portion of the card front with the “center line” between them. Leave enough room on top for the star.

For the next 3 trees, apply a Stampin’ Dimensional to the upper portion to elevate the top of the tree slightly.

Adhere a tree in the center, then one tree to either side.

For the last 2 trees, apply 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the entire tree will be slightly elevated.

Apply the last 2 trees so that they lie in between the trees in the row above them.

Adhere the Gold Foil stars flat to the card front above the top 2 trees.

Apply a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to each of the remaining 5 Gold Foil stars and adhere above the rest of the trees.

Apply the Stampin’ Dimensionals to the sentiment “Christmas Wishes”.

Adhere the sentiment to the card front.

And Viola! You have your first Christmas card ready to go!!
