Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Dies

Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper

 

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  This paper is part of the Year-End Closeout and is only available while supplies last.  The designs in this pack of paper coordinate with Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Old Olive (three colors I used for today’s card) as well as Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, and Pretty Peacock.

 

Night Before Christmas

 

I used the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas, which includes 18 different stamps!  The sentiment was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. The Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval in Old Olive was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. 

I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the Designer Series Paper.  The Old Olive scalloped square was cut out using the Layering Squares Dies.  The Cherry Cobbler cardstock was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (this item is not one of the retiring Holiday Catalog products).

Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper

Night Before Christmas

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas. I also used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and I have to tell you, every time I make a card and emboss a piece of it, I look through all my embossing folders but this is the one I gravitate towards.  It’s just perfect for holiday cards (and more)! 

 

Night Before Christmas

 

Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set

 

 

As you can see from the picture above, I made a second card using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Subtle Embossing Folder, another great folder when you want just a hint of embossing. 

 

To add some sparkle, before adhering the second layer to the card base, I wrapped our 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Gold around the cardstock and tied a bow. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, on both cards, and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger scalloped oval was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

If you’d like to create today’s cards, you can find the measurements below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper

Christmastime is Here

Today’s card features Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper which will be available beginning November 1, 2019 and will only be available while supplies last!

This PDF flyer will explain it all! 

 

Christmastime Suite

 

When I received my Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper (demonstrators are able to preorder this suite – a perk of purchasing the Starter Kit), I was surprised that several of the designs have gold foiling and on today’s card, the white flowers have this beautiful foiling.  To add more sparkle to the card, I added a layer of gold foil between the Cherry Cobbler base and Designer Series Paper. The scalloped oval the sentiment sits on is also gold foil. I really think this paper can be used for all occasions, not just for the holidays so I paired it with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.

Kindness & Compassion Condolence Card

Layered Leaves

Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife.  Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us. 

I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.  It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”

Kindness & Compassion

 

I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.

Feels Like Frost & Purple Posy

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Happy Friday!!

Yesterday I shared a card using Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (you can see it here). This gorgeous paper comes in 6″ x 6″ sheets and after making yesterday’s card, I had a strip of paper left over and used it to make today’s card! 

 

Feels Like Frost

I used Purple Posy cardstock for the base of my card.  The next layer is Whisper White that was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  This step is optional but I personally like the added texture. The sentiment is from the stamp set, Very Versailles.  It was inked up with Gorgeous Grape and then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. The Purple Posy layer below it was made using the Layering Ovals Dies.  All the supplies I used are listed below in the Supply List and below that, you’ll find the measurements.

New Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

Today’s card might look familiar.  I made a very similar card a few weeks ago but made several changes to this “updated” one. 

Here’s the first one I made.  If you want to check it out, here’s the link to that post.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

What are the differences between the two? First, I changed the measurements, just slightly so that less white would show between the panels (I’ve listed the measurements farther down in the post). Today’s card uses the Hammered Metal embossing folder rather than the Mosaic embossing folder.  Instead of using the Gathered Leaves Dies, I used our Leaf Punch and embossed them with the Hammered Metal folder. The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered on a Merry Merlot oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

Hammered Metal Stampin Up

Both cards have a cute little bow, made with our Linen Thread. The bows were adhered using just a dot of our Multipurpose Glue. A little of that glue goes a long, long way! 

Try taking a card you’ve made before and change it up a bit!
