Bubbles the Bear’s New Year Card

When Bubbles the bear, from the Fluffiest Friends Stamp Set, heard that Hattie the hamster made a “Happy New Year” card, she said it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t let her make one. She justified this, by adding, she had a better idea. We’ll let you be the judge.

First, Bubbles instructed me how to stamp her in Memento Black Ink, and use her Fluffiest Friends Die for cutting. Then, she chose the same color for her fur as Hattie, saying Crumb Cake was hard to beat. She wanted her honey pot to be colored with Parakeet Party, her honey to be Wild Wheat, and her grass to be cut from Parakeet Party Cardstock. She didn’t care about the bees, but I thought they should be Wild Wheat.

Bubbles the Bear

 

Next, Bubbles wanted to sit on Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, cut across the top with one of the Elegant Borders Dies. She said the curve was important for holding her surprise.

 

Bubble’s surprise was writing “Happy New Year” in beautiful, Gold Foil letters. She said the Mini Alphabet Dies, from the January-April Mini Catalog, had the perfect size.

Bubbles was excited to share her “Happy New Year” card, and said the Mini Alphabet Dies will be available January 4th.

 

Bubbles is excited to share her card with TGIF.

Next, I used the second largest Perennial Postage Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, and placed it on Dimensionals. This is another set in the new catalog, available January 3, 2024.

 

The three hearts were cut with Adoring Hearts Dies from Thick Basic White Cardstock; three plain hearts, and three intricate overlays. After gluing them together, I attached them with Dimensionals.

Prior to attaching the layer, I stamped the sentiment from the Adoring Hearts Stamp Set. “To my Valentine” was stamped in VersaMark, sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

Winter NOEL

I keep saying this is my last Christmas card, but here is one more. I love the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Paper, and today’s card has a scene cut in two pieces: 2 1/4″ X 3 7/8 and 1 1/4″ X 3 7/8″. These were glued to a 4″ square of Garden Green Cardstock, which was glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Prior to gluing, I embossed the card base with the Snowflake Sky Embossing Folder.

Winter NOEL

 

Next, I stamped NOEL, from the Joy Of Noel Stamp Set, in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 1 7/8″ X 2 1/8″. This was glued to Garden Green Cardstock, 2″ X 2 /14″, and attached with Dimensionals.

The little bunny is from the Regal Reindeer Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with his Reindeer Die. He seems to hop on quite a few of my cards!

 

For some sparkle, I added Iridescent Rhinestone, one of my favorite embellishments.

Quick & Easy Stenciled Pine Bough

Are you ready for a quick & easy Christmas card?

Begin with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Layer the card base with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. Before gluing the layer to the card base, emboss it with the Snowflake Sky Embossing Folder.

In case you’re wondering, this embossing folder is carrying over, so it will be around for a while. Yay!

Stenciled Pine Boughs

 

Next, use a Joy Of Noel Die to cut a pine frond from Vellum Cardstock, approximately 3″ X 3″. The “cut-out” space makes a stencil for you to add Granny Apple Green Ink to Basic White Cardstock, cut with the third largest Deckled Rectangles Die.

Use a Small Blending Brush, stroking in one direction, so the frond stays in place, until moving it to the next location.

 

Use a second, Joy Of Noel Die, to cut thee Real Red Cardstock berries, glue them in place, and attach the layer with Dimensionals. 

The sentiment, “many merry thoughts & wishes,” is from the Saint Nicholas Stamp Set. I stamped it in Real Red Ink, used a Sending Die for cutting, attached it with Dimensionals, and my “quick & easy” card was complete.

The Joy Of Noel Dies and Saint Nicholas Stamp Set are “Last Chance” products, so order now while they’re still available.

Noel Card with Music

The Joy Of Noel Bundle is retiring, one of my favorite “last chance” products. It isn’t discounted, but you only have until Jan 3 to purchase it, or when it sells out.

I began today’s “clean & simple” card with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Then, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. Stampin’ Up! told us this is the music to Joy To The World, one of my favorite holiday songs.

After embossing the card front, I used the largest, square, Stylish Shapes Die to cut two squares from Winter Meadow Designer Paper.

NOEL Music

 

Next, I used the “NOEL” Die, in the Joy Of Noel Dies Set, to cut the letters in one of the Winter Meadow Designer Paper squares. Then, I glued the squares together, cut the letters from a darker piece of Winter Meadow DSP, and glued the letters in the holes.

This paper is so pretty, and I’m happy to say it is a “carry-over,” and is not retiring. You can see all of the patterns in my Product List below.

 

Prior to attaching “NOEL” to the card front with Dimensionals, I attached two pine branches and berries to the back of the square. The branches were cut with a Joy of Noel Die from Thick Basic White Cardstock. The berries were fussy cut from  Winter Meadow DSP, and the only reason this card wasn’t “quick & easy.”

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Translucent Florals Thank You Card

For today’s card, I have to show you my inspiration, first. I fell in love with it, and wanted to create something very similar.

 

I began with the wood background, cut from All About Autumn Designer Paper, with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. This was glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Floral bouquet on wood

 

The bouquet was created with the Translucent Florals Stamps, on Basic White Cardstock, in five colors of ink: Flirty Flamingo (large flower), Mossy Meadow (leaves), small flowers (Crushed Curry and Gorgeous Grape), and Garden Green (sprigs). 

 

After stamping, I cut the bouquet parts with Translucent Florals Dies, glued them together, and attached them to the card front with Dimensionals. The center of the large flower was cut from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.

 

“Thanks” is from the Biggest Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, directly on the All About Autumn Designer Paper.

 

The Seasonal Sale has ended, but the Last Chance Products promotion, from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog, begins Tuesday, November 21. On the 21st, I will have a pictured list of the discounted products, and the remainder will be available at regular price, as long as supplies last, until January 3, 2024.
