There are two word stamps in this set: ‘Deck the Halls’ and ‘Peace on Earth’. Just the right size to give your cards some POP. I have made 3 samples and also below there are some samples the Stampin’ Up! office has made for us to show off.
- This first card was made with Real Red & Whisper White Cardstock. The poinsettia was stamped in Real Red Classic Ink and the leaves were in Garden Green Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I cut them out using the Thinlits. Deck the Halls was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Vellum Cardstock. The background paper I used is from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. It is a great touch to this card. Who says you have to only use holiday paper on a holiday card?! To finish up, I dressed up the card with a piece of Glossy White Satin Ribbon with a Metallic Silver Edge.
- For my second card, I wanted an outdoor scene to show off the snow and trees. I used the Whisper White Cardstock for my card base. Then took a piece of the Night of Navy Cardstock and used the Thinlits to make the decorative edge. You need to do this step twice. Make sure you line up the holes so your edging is straight! Once that was done I stamped the stars on the Night of Navy in Whisper White Craft Ink. I took a piece of the Silver Foil Sheet and cut out the trees. I cut out the deer from Soft Suede Cardstock and the moon from the Whisper White Cardstock. Now I took a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (2” x 4.5”) to make the snow. I tore it in half on the 2” side then layered it to make snow. I love this paper because it makes it so much easier to add glimmer to your projects with very little mess. I wrapped a piece of Silver 1/8” Ribbon around the snow and mounted it to the card. To finish up I added all my pieces to my snow scene. After it was all put together I decided to grab my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (another favorite item) and brushed it on the moon and deer. Viola!
- For card number 3, I had a bunch of fun. I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock for the card base. I stamped the Sheet Music Stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock with the Basic Black Archival Ink then I took the Thinlits and cut out the pretty edging. I used my Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Garden Green Markers to draw on the stamp to get the Peace on Earth to be 3 different colors on Whisper White Cardstock. This technique is great to add multiple colors to a stamp easily. I used one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out. The scallop circle was cut by the Layering Circle Framelits. It added a great touch. The deer in Soft Suede Classic Ink, the poinsettia was stamped in Real Red Classic Ink and the leaves were stamped in Garden Green Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and used the Thinlits to cut all of them out. The trees were cut out of Garden Green Cardstock with the Thinlits as well. When I was putting the card together I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock punched from the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and a piece of 5/8” Burlap Ribbon. Dimensionals were used to add some depth.
I hope you enjoyed all my cards. Below are the Stampin’ Up! samples I mentioned earlier. Thank you so much for stopping by.
