Joy Of Noel Holiday Card

It’s time to prepare holiday cards and today’s project features the Joy of Noel Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Sep-Dec 2023 Mini Catalog.  The Joy Of Noel Holiday card is a simple, beautiful card. Even better, the design uses the “one sheet wonder” technique!  You stamp on a full sheet of cardstock and then cut to create four panels for cards.  This enables you to create four cards in one quick swoop!  If you’re not familiar with this stamping technique, it’s demonstrated in the assembly video below.

One quick note…If you don’t currently own this stamp set (or the Joy of Noel Bundle with the coordinating dies), order soon! The set is being retired!

Joy of Noel Holiday Card Cut Dimensions:
  • First cut of stamped/colored Thick Basic White Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Second cut: 5-1/4″ x 4″ Card Bases: (4) 5-1/2″ x 11″; score/fold at 4-1/4″

Trucking Along – Tree Farm Holiday Card

The Tree Farm holiday card features the Trucking Along Bundle and the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.  It is a card design that was inspired by the beautiful designer series paper.  The illusion of a hill is perfect for a couple of tree farm trucks.  And the trucks bringing Christmas trees down the hill in the winter forest is perfect for a fun holiday card.  I’ve included the cut dimensions and an assembly video below so you can recreate the card. You will find both the Trucking Along Bundle and the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper in the Online Exclusives section of my Stampin’ Up! store.

Joy of Noel Holiday Card

This month the theme for card classes is Thinking of Christmas. Four cards featuring holiday theme were created using a different bundle. The Joy of Noel is one of the featured bundles. With the bundle and the Joyful Specialty Designer Series Paper, creating an elegant card is easy! The dies do the majority of the work and the designer series paper provides a gorgeous background. For the Joy of Noel Holiday card, stamping is minimal. Just stamp the word, Noel, and die cut with the coordinating dies to create the card front focal point. If you wanted, the letters could be die cut from another designer paper or cardstock making it even simpler.

Floating Panel Card

Happy Holidays! I hope your Christmas or Hannukah celebrations were memorable and shared with those you love.  We celebrated Christmas with our sons and their families.  We feel blessed and fortunate to have been able to enjoy the holiday with them.

And yes, Christmas has already come but I’m sharing a holiday card (was just too busy with holiday tasks to spend time blogging!). However,  I thought you would enjoy the technique on this card.  It’s a floating panel card and is easily adapted by changing the papers and sentiment.  The floating panel technique makes the card unique.  Plus you can use all those strips of paper you’ve been saving!  

Below is the list of project materials for this card and a video tutorial highlighting the Floating Frame technique:

Christmas Banner Holiday Card

Today’s project features a Christmas Banner holiday card that is easy for mass production.  There’s little stamping and the use of designer series paper layered onto cardstock completes the look.  While I am using non-traditional colors, it’s easy to swap out the colors and use a designer series paper with a traditional holiday color scheme.  Watch the video below to see how simple it is to make the Christmas Banner card.  NOTE: The Christmas Banner Bundle is retiring soon!  Order it soon – then you will have it available to use on next year’s holiday cards!

Candy Cane Holiday Card

Before I get into a brief description of today’s card, do you notice anything different on my blog?  I have a new header!  After 5+ years with my previous blog header, I decided it was time for an update.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the new look.

Now on to today’s project…the Candy Cane holiday card is one of the feature projects from this month’s class.  It is also a card featured in the monthly kit to-go.  The Candy Cane Dies and the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper combine to create a beautiful card.  Best of all, the dies coordinate to cut the candy canes from the designer series paper.  Notice in the card photo below, the candy canes face opposite directions…yes, there are two candy cane dies to match! Plus if you purchase the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle which includes the stamp set and dies, there are candy canes stamps facing in opposite directions too. This offers great design flexibility.  I have prepared a video with assembly directions and a tip on adding shine to the candy canes.

Project Materials:
  • Sweet Candy Canes Lane Bundle
  • Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper
  • Christmas Banners Dies
  • Vellum Cardstock
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock
  • Basic White Cardstock
  • Garden Green Cardstock
  • Real Red Cardstock
  • White Glimmer Paper
  • Red Red Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Brightest Glow Stamp Set
  • Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack
  • Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins
  • Flat Jingle Bell Trinkets
