Pine Woods Christmas Card

Feels Like Frost Designer Paper is so pretty, and I love this print in shades of purple and green. 

The first thing I did was select the card base in Highland Heather, to blend with the colors in the designer paper. Then, I glued the designer paper (4″ X 5 1/4″) to the card front.

Christmas Tree

 

Next, I used two Layering Ovals Dies to cut a scalloped oval from Feels Like Frost Designer Paper, and a plain oval from Highland Heather Cardstock.

The tree was made with a Pine Woods Die, cut from Feels Like Frost Designer Paper, and layered on cardstock for thickness.

I glued the ovals and tree together, and attached to the card front with Dimensionals.

 

This is how I used a second piece of designer paper for the three die cuts. The scalloped oval was cut to match, the tree was from the green corner, and the sentiment was from the lightest section, so the words would show. 

 

One of my favorite sentiments, “Blessed Christmas Wishes,” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I placed it on Dimensionals, and my card was complete.

This exact card isn’t one for quantity, but the design could be adapted to a multitude of papers.

 

 

I was inspired by TGIF, and didn’t realize until I finished that I used the same paper as Tami!

I’m also sharing with the Paper Player’s holiday theme.

Wreath of Joy To You And Yours

I delayed ordering the Peace & Joy Bundle, but it recently arrived, and I couldn’t wait to play with it. I can’t resist paper words! You can see the complete bundle in my Product List below.

The first thing I did was use a Joy Die to cut the word from Brushed Metallic Cardstock. By using a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, it was easy to add dimension to the thin font. Doesn’t it look pretty?

Wreath of Joy

 

Next, I used two Wreath Builder Dies to cut the wreath from Whisper White Cardstock, and Shaded Spruce Cardstock.

Before assembling the wreath, I cut a layer of Whisper White Cardstock for the background (4″ X 5 1/4″), and stamped berries (dots from In The Pines Stamp Set) in Real Red Ink. I stamped them in a circle, so they would show beneath the leaves of the wreath.

 

After stamping the berries, I embossed the white layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, and glued it to a Shaded Spruce card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″).

 

To complete the sentiment, I added “to you and yours” from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set. Wanting to match the gold “Joy,” I stamped the words in VersaMark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Then, I fussy cut the words, and attached with a thin “edge” from Dimensionals.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players color challenge.

Quite Curvy Thanksgiving Card

I’ve been having more fun with the Quite Curvy Bundle, and you can order it TODAY! You’ll find all of the numbers, pictures, and prices below. Clicking on the pictures, or my shop button, will take you to my store.

My husband especially likes the cards I make in Old Olive and Crumb Cake, so you can guess how he felt about today’s Thanksgiving card.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Quite Curvy Bundle, Word Wiushes Dies, Tasteful Textile embossing, Brushed metallic Paper;

Curvy Thanksgiving Card

 

I began with a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Next, I used a Curvy Die, cutting two pieces from  5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ Old Olive Cardstock. It takes some experimenting with the dies, because one side will have the detailed edge, and one will be plain. In this case, I turned the die around, in order to have the little dots on both sides. I also trimmed the top and bottom (straight sides) to have the Crumb Cake space I wanted in the middle.

 

Before gluing the Old Olive pieces to the card base, I added texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Don’t you love the leaves? You’ll be thrilled when you discover how easily they can be colored. I stamped the leaves in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used Sponge Daubers with four colors of ink: Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, and Pumpkin Pie. Then, I used its Curvy Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

“Happy” and “Thanksgiving” are two of the words in the Word Wishes Die Set. Isn’t the font pretty? “Thanksgiving” was cut from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, and glued in place. I wanted to add “happy,” but keep it subdued, so it was cut it from Old Olive Cardstock, and doubled for thickness.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players theme.

Jingle Bell Cheer

The Sounds Of The Season bells are wonderful! I’ve made cards with them in silver and gold, and this time I cut them from Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Aren’t the see-through holly leaves great?

Jingle Bell Cheer

 

I strung the three bells on Real Red Braided Linen Trim, which happens to be my Host Code Gift for the month of October. The details are below.

 

I placed the bells on Mini-Dimensionals atop three hexagons, cut with a Stitched Nested Label Die from Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper.

The background is Mossy Meadow Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4 “, on a Pear Pizzazz card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4”.

The sentiment, “Christmas Cheer,” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, and cut with the Classic Label Punch.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Nothing’s Better Than Christmas Cookies

Christmas Cookies

 

My recipe, from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, called for the cookies to be stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. After cutting with their Love You More Than Die, I colored the cookies with Stampin’ Blends in two colors: Bronze and Cinnamon Cider. Everyone knows that cinnamon is a Christmas flavor, right?

 

To show off my cookies, I placed them on a Plaid Tidings, red and green tablecloth. The table cloth has such a pretty border that was made with the largest Ornate Layers Die, perfect for the holidays.

 

“Oh what yum” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. Isn’t the frame adorable? “Cookies” is from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, also stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink, and also cut with an Ornate Frames Die. All I can say is, “yum,” I almost ate the paper.

 

My inspiration was from the Paper Players.

Nature’s Roots Fall Leaves

I imagine most of the leaves have fallen, as sunlight filters through the trees.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Rooted In Nature Bundle, Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, Nature's Roots Dies, Woodland Embossing Folder; #fall #fallcards #leaves #leavesoncards #fallleaves #naturesroots #thinkingofyoucards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardchallenges #colorcombos #stampinup #fall2020 #holiday2020 #woodlandembossing

Fall leaves

 

To set the stage for my leaves, I used a card base of Mossy Meadow, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. And, it was layered with Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, embossed with a favorite, Woodland Embossing Folder.

 

Prior to embossing, I stamped “Thinking of you,” from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, in Cinnamon Cider Ink.

My leaves are also from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, along with coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies. Both are available in a Bundle for a 10% discount, which you can see in my Product List below. The dies are also pictured in my first photo.

The leaves are unique, because I first cut the “outline” of the leaves from Whisper White Cardstock. Then I used the “vein” dies for embossing, and colored the leaves with Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry Inks, applied with Sponge Daubers.

I completed the scene with dots of Mossy Meadow Ink (Whale Done Stamp Set), and Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.

 

I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.
