Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath

I love this Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with Wreath. The Brightly Lit Christmas bundle has that gas lamp Victorian era charm and there are many quick and easy card possibilities.

To make this Christmas card simply start with an A2 sized Very Vanilla card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ The Old Olive layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  The inner Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.

Stamp the wreath on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then use the Big Shot to die cut the lamppost, Filigree arm, and wreath.  I left part of the arm unglued until I hung the wreath on it, then I used a dimensional to pop up part of the wreath for depth.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle

This Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight Bundle card was from our Creative Cat Color Challenge!  Love the simplicity of this set!  The coordinating punch makes it a breeze to make and I love how the photopolymer stems can bend!

Start with an A2 card base of Whisper White cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  Add a layer of Basic Gray cardstock cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, and a top layer of Whisper White cardstock cut at 5.25″ x 4″.

Stamp 2 daisies on white cardstock with the gray ink and punch them out using the daisy punch.  Then use a dauber to add Daffodil Delight to the centers.  Bend the photopolymer stem and place on a clear block, stamp 3 times on the white card front (stamped off) in gray.  Also stamp the sentiments in gray!

Add the small stamped accent flowers and use the sponge daubers to add yellow and light green.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video

Stampin'Up! A Little Wild card & video

Here’s my Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video.  I had so much fun with this cute little expecting baby card! Even my little furry companion had to make an appearance! I left the blooper in the video for laughs, since it happens to be a common occurrence!

Start with an A2 cardstock base in Bermuda Bay.  Cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is 5.25″ x 4″ and this layer is embossed with the layered leaves folder.  I absolutely LOVE the 3D Dynamic impressions embossing folders!!

Use the Bloomin Heart thinlet die to create the heart background in smokey slate cardstock.  And cut the flowers and tiny laurel pieces out of the bermuda bay cardstock.  Attach with the Tombow liquid glue.

Stamp and die cut the baby elephant from the “A Little Wild” bundle.  I cut the tag top off and stamped a sentiment on the inside, just tucking the edge under a flower to stay closed.  Stamp the congratulations sentiment, add the ribbon, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

Crafting Forever Masculine Card

The perfect touch for this Crafting Forever Masculine Card is added by the copper heat embossing, copper foil paper, and Stampin write markers.

Simply start with a Night of Navy A2 card base, cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The second layer is Early Espresso cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, and the very vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  

Stamp the pen set ( which I love!) on the left and right sides of the base centered.  Also stamp the envelope at this time!  Clean the stamp free of ink.

Heat emboss the focal point with copper powder and colored with a night of navy stampin’ write marker.  Finally, the vanilla focal is cut at 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″, the copper is cut at 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, and the final night of navy layer is 3″ x 3″.
