Try It Thursday - Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees Christmas Card and Tutorial



Good Morning Everyone! My Try It Share is a Christmas Card created with the Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree Punch. This is one of my favorite sets in the Holiday Catalog 2014. I used the Stampin' Up! Filigree Frame Textured Embossing Folder for the background and  I embellished with Pearls and Real Red Satin Ribbon. Because the Festival of Trees is a photopolymer stamp set, you can easily achieve 2-step stamping with ease! The really fun part was creating the die cut Joy sentiment using the Stampin' Up! Little Letters Thinlits Dies. Keep reading below to see a tutorial on how you can achieve this with other words as well.

Card Measurements:
Real Red Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Old Olive Card Layer: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White Card Layer: 5 1/4" x 4"

Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red

Stamp: Festival of Trees

Accessories: Filigree Frame Textured Embossing Folder, Little Letters Thinlits Dies, Big Shot, Tree Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (Star)Real Red Satin Ribbon, Pearls


Little Letters Die Cut Words On Cards Tutorial

1. Fold your card stock at 5 1/2"x 4 1/4". Lay the Card Base on the Big Shot using this sandwich: Magnetic Platform, Clear Plate, Card Base. Spell out the word you want to die using the Little Letter Thinlits Dies and place them on edge of the fold on the Card Base. Use Washi Tape to hold the letters in place.

2. Place the remaining Clear Plate on the Big Shot Sandwich right above the edge of the letters. Do not cover the letters entirely with the plate or they will all be cut out.


3. Run the Big Shot Sandwich through the machine and your Card Base should look like this.


4. Gently push each of the letters up along the edge and fold your Card Base to create a card.


5. Decorate your card!



Happy Stamping!

Make It Monday - Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath Christmas Card



Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I got to complete another set of Christmas Cards and spend time with my family! My Make It Monday share is a Christmas Card created with the Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath stamp set and coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies. I was totally inspired by Justin Krieger and a card he did, but I made a few changes to make it my own. I used the Stampin' Up! Hardwood stamp for the background and I added an embossed window from a die in my stamping stash. I then embellished with rhinestones and a die cut sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Expression Thinlits dies. You can find the set of 3 Expression Thinlits on the Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack for $14.99. Just a reminder, there are 72 Days until Christmas! Have you started your Holiday Cards?
