Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

I love the elegance of white and gold cards, and today’s card has a uniquely stamped, gold embossed, sentiment.

Pine Woods Time of the Year

 

First, I used a Pine Woods Die to cut a tree from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, and backed it with a second tree for thickness.

Then, I used a plain Layering Squares Die to cut a square from Whisper White Cardstock, and a scalloped Layering Squares Die to frame it in Brushed Metallic Cardstock.

 

Next, I placed the square on my Stamparatus, then bent the sentiment from the Festive Corners Stamp Set to fit around the Pine Woods tree die. Once positioned, I stamped VersaMark on the sentiment, and pressed it to the square. After lifting the square from the Stamparatus, I sprinkled the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder, set it with the Heat Tool, and glued the tree in place.

 

Behind the square is another shade of Brushed Metallic Cardstock, cut with an Ornate layers Die.

 

The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder. This layer is glued to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2” X 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4”.

 

I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.

“Gate Fold” Christmas Tree Card

I haven’t made a “gate fold” card for a while, but somehow, this triangle tree inspired me to do just that! Follow along, and I’ll describe how it was done.

By Su Mohr for cts; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Stitched Triangles Dies, Plaid Tidings paper, Regals 6X6 paper, Little Treats Bundle; #christmascards #holidaycards #christmastrees #plaidoncards #treesoncards #fancyfoldcards #fancyfolds #gatefold #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #plaidtidings #cardchallenges #trianglesoncards #hohoho

“Gate Fold” Card

 

First, I cut Shaded Spruce Cardstock in half, lengthwise, 4 1/4″ X 11″, which will make two card bases. I scored each end of one card base at 2 3/4″, and folded to meet in the middle. Wasn’t that simple? You’ll need to give the folds a good burnishing with your bone folder, because they have a tendency to open (when you don’t want them to).

To decorate the sides, I cut two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock, 2 1/4″ X 3″, and two pieces of Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in dotted, Shaded Spruce, 1/8″ smaller. The Whisper White Cardstock serves as a frame. Then, I glued the panels as close to the middle as possible.

 

Next, I used the tallest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut my tree from Plaid Tidings Designer Paper, and glued a second tree of cardstock to it for thickness. I cut a third tree, and glued it to the inside, which you see when opened.

The sentiment is from the Little Treats Stamp Set, Stamped in Real Red Ink, cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies, and attached with Dimensionals. “Ho Ho Ho.”

 

Ta-da!  I added Whisper White Cardstock to the inside for a Christmas greeting, and I had to include a Santa hat, because of the CAS(E) this sketch challenge. The hat is from the Little Treats Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink, and cut with its Little Treat Box Die. I have the stamp set and dies in my Product List as a Bundle, which gives you a 10% savings.

 

Here is the CAS(E) this sketch challenge. See what I mean about the hat?

Love Of Leaves Heart

I think everyone can agree that this leaf from the Stitched Leaves Die Set looks like a heart. I just took it one step further, and cut off the stem. If you look at the Love Of Leaves Bundle in my Product List, you will see the stem.

Heart-shaped Leaves

 

The heart shaped leaf was stamped in four colors of ink: Real Red, Rococo Rose, Melon Mambo, and Poppy Parade. Then, I used its Stitched Leaves Die for cutting, and snipped the stem, revealing its true heart shape. See the die I used to add the stitching?

 

The center panel is Whisper White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Layers Die, and embossed with an unusual die in the Stitched Leaves Die Set. It was exciting to see how perfectly it fit within my panel. I glued the panel in the middle of a Blushing Bride card base that I had embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

 

Next, I attached the four hearts to the panel with Dimensionals, leaving a space for the sentiment.

“Love” is from the  Love You More Than Die Set, cut from Basic Black Cardstock for contrast. For a bit more black, I added three black rhinestones.

Winter Snow Merry Christmas

It’s “snow wonder” I’m sharing a Christmas card today; Christmas is around the corner! It may be Halloween, but those cards have been sent, and I need to keep making Christmas cards.

By Su Mohr for cts; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Word Wishes Dies, Wreath Builder Dies, Rainbow Glimmer Paper, Winter Snow embossing; #christmascards #holidaycards #holiday2020 #wreathbuilderdies #wordwishesdies #paperwords #wintersnow #embossing #cardsketches #cardchallenges #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #paperpumpkin #octoberpaperpumpkin

It’s Snow Wonder

 

When you want to say “Merry Christmas” in a big way, the Word Wishes Die Set has the answer. The set is great, because it has words for lots of holidays, but today I cut “Merry” and “Christmas” from Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Aren’t the words beautiful? You can see the entire set in my Product List below.

I first cut equal sizes of Rainbow Glimmer Paper and Foam Adhesive Sheets, attached them, put the word dies on top, and rolled them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. They were rolled through a second time, upside down, to get a good cut.

The hardest part was poking out the little pieces, but worth it for the dimension. 

 

The background is Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I glued this to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

 

This versatile flower from the Wreath Builder Die Set is looking like a poinsettia today, isn’t it? I cut them from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and the centers were cut from Rainbow Glimmer Paper, using a tiny die from the same set. After gluing the centers with pin dots of Tombow glue, I placed the flowers on Mini Dimensionals.

 

I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.

Pinecone Christmas Wreath

The Painted Labels Die worked perfectly for today’s Christmas wreath. First, I cut the wreath from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and stamped “Merry Christmas,” from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, in the middle, using Mossy Meadow Ink. 

By Su Mohr for cts; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Painted Labels Dies, Beautiful Boughs Dies, Wreath Builder Dies, Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper, Tasteful Textile embossing; #christmascards #holidaycards #holiday2020 #wreaths #wreathsoncards #heartwarminghugs #salepaper #pinecones #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardinstruction #beautifulboughs #stampinup

Pinecone Wreath

 

Wanting to decorate the wreath, I found the middle-sized bough from the Beautiful Boughs Die set, and used it to cut from Mossy Meadow Cardstock. The pinecones are from the same set, made with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Cardstock.

 

I made the paper bow with Real Red Cardstock and a Wreath Builder Die. Then, I glued the ribbon strands to the top of the pinecones, and placed them on Dimensionals. 

 

The pretty checked paper behind the wreath is one of the patterns of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper. It was 2″ X 4 1/4″, glued to Whisper White Cardstock that was the size of the card front, until I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. I added texture by running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Finally, I glued my art piece to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Heartwarming Hugs is wonderful paper for the holidays, and it’s on sale for the month of October. You can see all of the sale Designer Paper below.

 

I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch. They turned it sideways, so I followed suit.

#simplestamping with a Sloth

When I saw this week’s CAS(E) this sketch, I needed something hanging, and there’s nothing cuter than this hanging sloth! So, even though I need to be making Christmas cards, this card is perfect for our pandemic times. Do you see the mask wrapped around his arm?

By Su Mohr for cts; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Back On Your Feet Stamp Set, Swirly Frames Stamp Set, Stampin' Blends; #sloths #slothsoncards #backonyourfeet #getwellcards #encouragementcards #covidcards #pandemic #sympathycards #cardsketches #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

2020 Sloth

 

The adorable sloth is from the Back On Your Feet Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The card base is Garden Green, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

This is a “clean & simple card” and it would be #simplestamping, if I hadn’t used Stampin’ Blends. But, the sloth said I had to color him, because he deserved to look his best under these trying circumstances. I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake for his body, Bronze for the limb, and Dark Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

 

 

The horizontal lines are from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink. The sentiment, “sigh,” is from the Back On Your Feet Stamp Set, also stamped in Early Espresso Ink.

 

I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.
