Tin Of Tags With Two Light Strings

Tin Of Tags (Two Light Strings)

twostringlights

If you haven’t started your Christmas cards yet, here is another take on “Making Spirits Bright” with the Tin Of Tags stamp set.  All I can say with this one is, make two criss crossing lines with your Stampin’ Write Black marker and add the lights in various colors of Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Garden Green.

Not only was this card fun to make, but easy to do as well.

If you are still in need of Stampin’ Up! supplies to begin your Christmas cards, be sure to use the hostess code below for the month of November.

Have you ever been inspired by Pinterest?! Oh sure you have! This was the case here when I thought about my Stampin’ Write Markers.  Not many of us feel empowered to just free-hand drawing a line.  But here, I did just that!

I used the Tin of Tags Stamp Set and added the Christmas lights along the strand giving that “hanging on the house” look!  With a couple of stars and a sentiment from the same set, you have a very clean and simple card idea.

Added Bonus:  The Tin of Tags Stamp Set can be used during the year as well.  Many of these sentiments work well outside of the Christmas season!  Think, baby, birthday, special surprise, hostess and teacher gifts, etc…!

Christmas Pines

Christmas Pines

season-of-joy

As you can tell, if I could, I would skip right over Halloween.  (audible gasp)  I have never been a big a fan nor will I send out cards for the event.  So without further adieu, today’s card features the Christmas Pines stamp set!  What I love most is the clean and simple elegance of this card and the WOW factor that it provides.

Love To Ink’s Tips:

  • I have kept the inks to two.  Old Olive and Archival Basic Black!  By the way, it is my NEW favorite ink.
  • Stamp off the sides of the Whisper White layer cardstock for that peek a boo look.
  • I added pearls for a little bit of POP!

Wonderful Year!

Wonderful Year!

joyful-christmasWhen you have to mass produce cards, think of Designer Series Paper and a large sentiment stamp set.  Wonderful Year is perfect when paired with This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.  The best part about this paper pack is that it comes with 4 sheets of each design.  Whoo Hoo! for mass producing your cards! Add some coordinated punched holly and berry from the NEW Holly Berry Builder Punch and you have a super easy card that can be mass produced in no time.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Need to mass produce your cards this year?  No worries.  My tip for you is to cut all your cardstock and designer series paper first.  Then, handstamp your sentiment.  After that, punch your holly and berry embellishments.
  • The next step would be to adhere all the Designer Series Paper to your base cardstock.
  • After that, adhere the stamped image to your solid cardstock layer and adhere to your cardstock base.
  • Finally, add your embellishments.
  • In no time will you have a complete set of holiday cards to send out.

Need to order the supplies to make this easy card?  Use the hostess code below to place your order in my ONLINE STORE and I will send you a FREE gift.  If your order is over $150, do not use the hostess code, but I will still send you a FREE gift, valued at $7.50.

Layered Letters Love!

Layered Letters with Love!

Last weekend I was on a roll making cards in my studio.  After my Birthday Bash Card Class, I cleaned up and then, BAM!, inspiration set in and I was on a roll!  Don’t you just love it when the ideas just fall out of your head?!  This was one of the projects that I put together!

You can create your own words and messages and as you can see, I have put together LOTS of inspiration using this set.  Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, pair it with the Hardwood stamp.  That little zigzag line at the bottom is from the Sale A Bration set called Hello!

Break out the heart punches and add them instead of stamping the “o”.  Simply, rustic and clean!  My kind of card.
LOVE cp

Here I popped up each layer of hearts.  You can use any Designer Series Paper you would like.  Here I chose something from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  These little 6 x 6 packs are great to pull out and use on your projects.

Just look how pretty those papers are?!  The color combinations are exceptional!

Layered Letters Love You

Layered Letters Love You Card – Stampin’ Up!

This simple card is perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Just Because and even a close friend.  But why not take it a step further and make one for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or even a special birthday?!

Using the NEW Thick Whisper White cardstock for the card base is the perfect weight for holding up layers.  I make all my cards with a side folding edge.  I am just not a big fan of the top folding tent style card.

Love heartChristine’s Tips:

  • Experiment with different size hearts in place of the “O”.  I used the Hello Life Stamp Set for this along with punching a small heart.
  • Be sure to add a little bling with a rhinestone.
  • You could even add the “O” inside of a heart.
  • Change up the colors for other occasions.
  • Again, I simply cannot say enough good things about Stampin’ Up’s! NEW Archival Black Ink.  No smudging!

Bloomin’ Love Heart

Bloomin’ Love Heart-Stampin’ Up!

Isn’t this filigree heart from gorgeous?!  This die makes a stunning centerpiece and is so beautiful and eye catching that you can use it just by itself or with a coordinating set of stamps called Bloomin’ Love.  This bundle is discounted 15%!  I love discounts, that is why I purchase the bundles that Stampin’ Up! puts together.

I stamped the Hardwood stamp onto Whisper White using Sahara Sand ink and sponged the edges to make the background POP!

HeartThe hearts were die cut with Smoky Slate!  This color is one of my neutral go-to colors.  Using Basic Gray for the sentiment finishes it off.  Can you tell I am in LOVE with the sentiment?!  This is so wonderful that it can be used for Valentine’s, Anniversary, Just Because… etc!

Heart FlatOne of my tips for you is to stamp your envelopes.  Yes,  please do!  It adds so much to your beautiful cards.  If you go to the trouble of making a card, why not stamp the envelope?!

And last but not least, the inside of this card features, the word “you”.  A finish to the question on the front of the card.

Simple Christmas Card Idea!

Simple Christmas Card Idea!

Merry Christmas TreeHave you ever seen something on Pinterest and thought to yourself, “Self?!  I can do that with Stampin’ Up! stamps and accessories!”

Since I made all my Christmas Cards already with the To You and Yours Shaker Card Kit, I played in my studio and am giving you a simple idea, just in case you weren’t interested in the card kit.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Punch a piece of copy paper with the Tree Punch.
  • Using small print, (I used the sentiment from White Christmas), alternate and stamp the words in Always Artichoke across the punched copy paper.  Be sure to stagger the text so that it is in a random pattern.
  • Stamp the star from White Christmas at the top in Crushed Curry.
  • Fill in the tree trunk with marker.
  • Stamp the pot from the set, cut out and pop up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped it twice so that it provides a shadow underneath.
  • Add a tied piece of Linen Thread with some Multipurpose Tombow adhesive.
  • Of course I used our Thick Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Cardstock.
