This is from Stampin’ Up!:

World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, we’ll walk you through several projects, and you’ll create the cards right along with us. You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!

To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle, which you can get early from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog! If you want, you could even order all three bundles! 

When you order one of these three bundles: Cottage Rose Bundle, Cottage Wreaths Bundle or Warm Welcome Bundle you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! 

 You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it will be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more bundles! 

 

For today’s card, I was excited to use the Cottage Wreaths Bundle, and stamped a wreath of leaves in Garden Green Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped a second wreath of stems on top of it in Early Espresso Ink.

After stamping, I used a Cottage Wreath Die to cut the wreath, and another die in the set to cut the bow from Gingham Cottage Designer Paper. Doesn’t the Real Red plaid make a pretty bow?

Christmas Wreath

 

Beneath the wreath is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die. After cutting, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder, and placed it on Dimensionals.

 

For a different color combination, I added a layer of Early Espresso 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, to the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “Christmas Greetings,” is from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and fussy cut. I attached the wreath and sentiment with Dimensionals, and my card was complete.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Stylish Shapes and Bows for Avid Crafters

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of Saturday’s card, which was Amazing Thanks for casual crafters. This version is for avid crafters, which calls for additional supplies, and is even more challenging. My supplies are in the Product List below.

I began by stamping the same three colors (Mango Melody, Parakeet Party, Flirty Flamingo), across Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die. The inking was done with the same splotch stamp from Perched In A Tree, as the first and second cards.

Avid Crafter

 

After stamping, I used the smallest, square, Stylish Shapes Die to cut three holes across the layer. Then, I attached the layer with LOTS of Dimensionals on a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Next, I stamped the splotch a second time, and used a Country Wreaths die to cut a bow from each color, and glued the bows with their corresponding squares.

 

The sentiment, “warmest wishes,” from the Through It Together Stamp Set, was stamped in Memento Black Ink, cut with a Stylish Shapes Die, and glued in place. The last detail was adding three Fine Sparkle Gems.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Amazing Thanks for Casual Crafters

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of Thursday’s card, which was #simplestamping for beginning crafters. Casual crafters would need additional supplies, and find this a bit more challenging. My Supplies are in the Product List below.

I began by stamping the same three colors on an angle (Mango Melody, Parakeet Party, Flirty Flamingo), across Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″. And, I used two of the same stamps as the first card, the splotch from Perched In A Tree, and the blossom from Apple Harvest.

Casual Crafters

 

After stamping, I used Amazing Thanks Dies to cut “you are amazing” from the stamped design. I used the “thicker” die, the bubble, to cut the holes, as well as the cardstock in colors to match the ink. Then, I glued this layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Next, I cut the words from Basic White Cardstock, glued them to the bubbles, and glued “you are amazing” in the holes.

 

Lastly, I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels on my “stepped up” card for the casual crafter. Come back tomorrow to see my “stepped up” card for avid crafters.

Christmas Trees Background

The Trees For Sale Stamp Set has wonderful “two-step” trees in three sizes. The largest stamp was used (without the two-step stamp) to create the background on today’s card. “Two-step” means there are two stamps, where one is stamped on top of the other to complete the image. 

To create the pattern, I stamped rows of trees in Shaded Spruce Ink, “stamping-off” every other row, across Basic White Cardstock. “Stamping-off” means inking the stamp, and stamping on scratch paper before stamping on your project, giving a lighter shade.

 

After stamping the trees, I used the second largest, Deckled Rectangles Die, for cutting. Then, I used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to give it a frame of Real Red Cardstock. The two layers were glued to a Shaded Spruce card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The focal point was created with the second smallest Deckled Rectangles Die, cutting a rectangle of Shaded Spruce Cardstock and Painted Christmas Designer Paper. The two rectangles were glued together, and attached with Dimensionals.

Christmas tree background

 

The sentiment, “Christmas Greetings” is from the Trees For sale Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink, and cut with the third smallest Deckled Rectangles Die. I used two cuts to make the label the desired size, and attached it with Dimensionals.

For a touch of sparkle, I attached a few Iridescent Rhinestones.

Even if you weren’t lucky enough to get the Tree Lot Dies that coordinate with this stamp set, the Trees For Sale Stamp Set is great for holiday cards.

Summer Shadows Dies for Deals of the Week

Have you heard about Stampin’ Up’s September Weekly Deals?

 

As soon as I saw the “Weekly Deals,” I was excited to show you three of the items on today’s card. 

I started by using Summer Shadows Dies to cut from Splendid Day Designer Paper; both the paper and dies are “Weekly Deals” at a reduced price.The paper is “specialty” designer paper, because half the pack is patterned foil. My last picture shows off the sheen.

Don’t delay ordering, because the special price ends Sept 7, or when they sell out.

Summer Shadows Special Deal

 

The background for the flower and leaves is Splendid Day DSP also, cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die. After attaching a strand of Linen Thread to the back of the DSP, I glued it to a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, I stamped “Love you, friend” in Crumb Cake Ink on Splendid Day DSP, and used a Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting. I used two cuts with the 3 1/4″ X 1 3/4″ die to make it the desired size, and attached it with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Shaded Summer.

 

After attaching the flower and leaves with Diemnsionals, I added a bow of Linen Thread with a Glue Dot. The final touch was one of the Brushed Brass Butterflies, the third “Weekly Deal.” The butterflies are flat, self-adhesive, and mail friendly.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Poinsettias for Christmas

The Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper has wonderful shades of red and green, and our favorite Christmas flower, the poinsettia.

Todays’ card began with a sketch in mind, and I found two Stitched Rectangle Dies ( approximately 1 3/4″ X 3 3/4″ and 1 1/4″ X 1 3/4″) to cut three rectangles from the designer paper. After layering them with card stock for thickness, I glued them to Basic white Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 4″. Then, I layered the Basic White Cardstock on Evening Evergreen Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.

Featuring: Boughs Of Holly DSP, Merry Melody Embossing Folder, Double Oval Punch, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Regal Reindeer Stamp Set; #boughsofholly #regalreindeer #merrymelody #stitchedrectagles #ovalpunch #poinsettias #christmascards #holiday2022 #cardsketches #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #stamping #stampinup

Christmas Poinsettias

 

Prior to gluing, I embossed the card front of the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. In order to do this, I couldn’t put it through the Stamp N’ Cut and Emboss Machine fold first, the way you are supposed to, but it worked okay.

 

To add further interest, I used Paper Snips to hand cut a poinsettia from the Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

“Merry Christmas” is from the Regal Reindeer Stamp Set, stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink, cut with the Double Oval Punch, and attached with the Poinsettia on Dimensionals.
