Traditional Holiday Tag

Since Christmas will soon be here, I wanted to share this traditional holiday tag with you.  You can create this Into the Woods Gift Tag to use on a gift bag or wrapped package.  It’s perfect for all your holiday needs and can come together quickly.  I love the fir tree in the Winter Woods stamp set and with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies, it creates a dimensional effect.  You can also get these products in a bundle and save 10%.

First of all, just stamp two trees and use the large tree and smaller tree Dies to cut them out.  With the tip of your Bone Folder, lift the tree boughs on the smaller cut piece and then attach to the larger tree with Mini Dimensionals.  Lastly, add that “little extra” touch, and use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the top tree layer boughs.  It’s great to see the effect on the tag.

The tag base is created by cutting two layering ovals using Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks.  Stamp the greeting using Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ pad and add some gems around the base.  Also, add the various ribbons to complete the traditional Christmas look.  I hope these will help you to complete your final packaging and preparations as we close in on Christmas.
You can get all these items from my online store.

Beautiful Detailed Baubles

This holiday card features the Detailed Baubles Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!  and is a card that can be made rather quickly.  At this busy time of year, simple is a good thing!  Also, check out the thinlits  in my online store – they are on SALE (while quantities last!)

Using the Detailed Baubles dies cut the Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper which is from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper stack.  Next use the 2-1/4″ punch for the round ornament to cut  Old Olive cardstock.  This will create a base for the glimmer ornament piece.  Since there is not a die or punch for the oblong ornament, use the Big Shot Embossing Mat (SALE item) and the oblong ornament thinlit to emboss a piece of the Old Olive cardstock.  After embossing, trim around the outer rim of the embossed Old Olive ornament.  With the embossing, the oblong ornament fits perfectly inside the cutouts of the glimmer paper.  Attach the glimmer ornament pieces using the Fine-tip Glue Pen.

Card Assembly:

Create card base using Real Red cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″)  and top with a layer of Old Olive cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″).  Cut a top decorative layer from Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″).  Attach the ornaments to the decorate layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Thread 1/8″ Real Red ribbon through top of ornaments and adhere to back of designer series paper.  With adhesive, attach designer series paper layer to the card base.   Complete the card by stamping the greeting tag with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Use punch to cut the tag shape.  Both the greeting and punch are in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. To give the tag some definition against the DSP, sponge around the edges with the Old Olive ink.  Complete the card by attaching small red bows to the top of the ornaments.

Holly, Jolly & Bright! Quick & Easy

Need a quick and easy holiday card? The design on this Holly, Jolly & Bright card is your “go-to” card layout.  The card design is one of my favorite to use year round but it is especially useful during the hectic holiday season.  A combination of project suites from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog come together to create the card in the photo.  The sentiment is found in the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set.   While the Festive Farmhouse suite of products offers the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Cherry Cobbler Twine

To take the card “up a notch” with more visual appeal, wrap the twine multiple times around the card.  Then add extra bling by using the Sprig Punch to cut the Sparkle Glimmer paper.  

Holly, Jolly & Bright quick & easy holiday card

Just a comment about the new Glimmer Paper –  the glimmer stays on the paper so the glitter is not all over your craft room.  There are four colors of Glimmer Paper in the Annual Catalog and additional colors in the Joyous Noel Suite in the Holiday Catalog.

Challenging Frights & Delights

Challenging Frights & Delights is my theme for today.  Even though the Paper Pumpkin kits come with instructions and pictures, it’s still fun to take to it another level.  Do something different with the products that they give you.  Maybe you can even add a few other products.  I challenged myself to create something out of the box besides what they designed for us.  So in honor of today – Halloween, I wanted to create something different.  I’m happy how it turned out.

MPP September

For this card, all the elements except the card base (Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White cardstock) are from the September Paper Pumpkin “Frights & Delights” project kit box. I Challenged myself to use the extra elements in the kit to create a Halloween card.  I would love to see what you can do with some additional products and the September Paper Pumpkin kit.  How can you start challenging Frights and Delights with your monthly kit?

I loved that little orange pumpkin the moment I saw it so my mind went to work immediately.  There are other words you can use besides the eeeek.  Halloween cards are always so fun to make because you can really go crazy.  I thought about changing the colors of the bats but preferred them all black.  

If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber and want to start, you can sign up here and get your first monthly kit by November 20th.  But you have to sign up by November 10th.  If you sign up after November 10th then December will be your first kit. November will be the last Christmas themed project kit for the year.

Wintry Trees

First of all, let me say that I love wintry trees and the images they create.  The holidays are here and that means creating beautiful hand made projects for your friends and family.  One of my favorite bundles is in the Holiday Catalog.  The Winter Woods bundle can create such amazing outdoor landscape cards.  The Framelits are such a great feature of this bundle because you can use them to create the 3-D woods. 

Adding embellishments and bling to projects is key to making your cards special for your loved ones.  I always want everyone to know that each card is created with love and purpose. Additionally, the cards are created for each specific person.  

Find these products and so much more in the Holiday Catalog.  Rather than starting with colors, start with the stamp set you want to use and expand from there.  There are a lot of products in the catalog that have caught my attention.  So, maybe I should make more than one holiday card this season.  I love the wintry trees because you can make them exactly what you want them to be.  Additionally, you can create any season while putting your own personal touch into each and every card.
