hey stamping friends, I have a fun and super easy Christmas Card for you today, Snowflake Sentiments Triptych

Snowlfake Sentiments Triptych card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #cardmakingblog #canadianstampinupdemonstrator #christmascardideas #stampinupcardideas

This little guy was really quick and really fun to make, here’s how I did it:

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Snowflake Sentiments Triptych Card:

Step 1 – using a 1-1/2″ scrap of Whisper White – die cut the snowflake

Step 2

Step 3

Of course you need to do this 3 times to get the pieces you need for the card

Prepping the card base is super easy when you use the Thick Whisper White card stock you only need one layer.

Stamp the sentiment in VersmaMark Ink, cover with gold embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set.

Attach the three snowflake squares to the card – TIP – I did the two outside ones first, making it easy to position the center one.

Attach a line of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape above and below

BAM – you’re done!

The layout for today’s card is for the Sunday Stamps Sketch challenge this week and the rebel in me turned the card and moved the sentiment!….

 

For the Snowflake Sentiments Triptych Card:

Card Base:  Thick Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2

Snowflakes:  Whisper White 1-1/2 square (3) and Gold Foil Sheet 1″ square (3)

Bloomin Love and Color Me Happy

Hi stamping friends, my share for you today is a combo of Bloomin Love and Color Me Happy.

Yesterday while I was creating the picture images of the sale items, I remembered how much I loved the Bloomin Love Bundle and that I had not created with it for awhile.  So I dug it out…of course there was also a mess on my design table, and Color Me Happy was also sitting there…..well they had a little love affair and this happened.

bloomin love and color me happy by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com, #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #asianstylecards #stampinupcardideas #chineselanterncard

Did I have fun or what?   ha-ha, I love using different elements and dies I have to create a picture and for today’s share, it’s a beautiful Japanese garden with the cherry blossoms in bloom.

Many of the items I used are on sale this week so here’s the details to save you a little dough!

This card is also my entry for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge for this week.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Bloomin Love and Color Me Happy Card:

The branch is done in Smoky Slate and die cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlits set not on sale – but a must have selection of dies.

The flowers were stamped with the Bloomin Love stamp set – On Sale Nov 20th only 20% off.

And then die cut with the Bloomin Heart Thinlits – On Sale Nov 20-26 – 30% Off

The leaves are the inside pieces from the Rose Garden Thinlits on Sale Nov 20-26 for 10% off

bloomin love and color me happy by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com, #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #asianstylecards #stampinupcardideas #chineselanterncard

Color Me Happy is a new Stamp Set from Stampin Up with a beautiful selection of images to color.

Color me happy stamp set from stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #colormehappystampset #stampinblends #alcoholmakers

It premiered with the Stampin Blends, which I used to colour my images today but they work beautifully with our Blender pen and/or Aqua painter also.

My embellishment for this card – the Black Rhinestone Jewels in the Holiday Catalogue – order a few extra packages because we don’t know if they will carry over to the new catalogue or not and in my humble opinion – they are the BEST embellishment.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia

powered byad choices

Hi stamping friends, I have a new share for you today the Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia card.  I love poinsettias at Christmas (especially the pink and white ones) so yesterday I figured out how to make a Stampin Up Poinsettia.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #christmasquiltbundle #christmasquiltmpoinsettia #christmascardideas #stampinupcardideas #holidaycards

In the last post I shared, I had been creating with the Christmas Quilt Bundle on pages 5-6 of the Holiday Catalogue.  There is a lovely suite of products there in the traditional holiday colours, well as you know – I’m far from traditional haha, so here’s a black and white Christmas card, with gold highlights of course.

We will get back to quilting for the next post, but for today I wanted to share how easy it is to create these pretty flowers and of course I included the Pretty Pines Thinlits to create my background foliage.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #christmasquiltbundle #christmasquiltmpoinsettia #christmascardideas #stampinupcardideas #holidaycards

The main part of the flower is cut from Gold Foil Sheet and the petals are an overlay cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

Here is a little step-by-step picture for you – I find they often help don’t you?  It’s super easy and only takes a minute.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #christmasquiltbundle #christmasquiltmpoinsettia #christmascardideas #stampinupcardideas #holidaycards

Then add them as the center of attraction to your card.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia Card:

  • Gold emboss the sentiment at the bottom of the black panel
  • Use the Corner Rounder punch at the top of the envelope punch board to round the bottom two corners
  • Run a strip of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape Across the top
  • Cut ad add the white pine boughs, I cut 3 small and 3 medium
  • Cut the leafy branches and the sticks from Gold Foil Sheet
  • Use Multipurpose glue to attach everything to the card front
  • Use Dimensionals to attach the Poinsettia
  • and – the gold faceted gems are the perfect flower center!

 

 

For the Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia card:

  • Card Base:  Thick Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 score and fold at 4-1/4
  • Front Panel:  Basic Black 3 x 5-1/4
  • Pine Boughs:  Whisper White 4 x 6
