Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Cards

Recently I held my Christmas in July Mini Retreat.  I offered this as an in person event or a mini retreat in the mail.  One of the classes for the retreat was the Tidings & Trimmings Class which featured the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Trimmings Dies.

All about Pale Papaya

Each month, for those that are members of my In Color Club, we focus on a single new In Color.  In July the focus is on Pale Papaya.  Not only did all In Color Club Members receive this card from me this month, they also got a full package of the Pale Papaya Cardstock and Open Weave Ribbon, Pale Papaya Ink Pad and Refill, Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, Pale Papaya Stampin’ Write Marker, Pale Papaya Jewels and an extra gift of a package of the Matte Black Dots.

Stampin' Up! Sweet as a Peach stamp set, Pale Papaya, Stampin' Studio

Because this card is focused on Pale Papaya, the only other color I added was the Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and stem.  Let’s take a close look t all the product used on this card;  

The Pale Papaya card base was textured with the exquisite Stitched Greenery Die run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  See the swirly leafy texture?  It’s a die that acts more like an embossing folder because it doesn’t cut anything except the little stitches and it is a MUST HAVE item.   I used the Sweet as a Peach stamp set as it was just calling for Pale Papaya Ink.  The Basic White cardstock adds a bit of contrast in the matting and focal image.  Next up is the plaid printed Pale Papaya Designer Series Paper.  This paper is a treat because it coordinates but doesn’t steal the show.  You know me and that I like to add embellishments to my creations, so I’ve used the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon, which makes such pretty bows and adds just the right amount of shine.  The images and sentiment are stamped on a circle which was die-cut with the Layering Circles Dies and that scalloped circle behind the main image, is from the same die set.  I love using scallop circles with the regular circles, for a pretty layered effect.  The finishing touch on this card is the addition of a few of the Pale Papaya In Color Jewels.

Sending Hugs

I created this sweet card featuring the Sending Hugs stamp set to celebrate some of my amazing team members for their recent accomplishments and I was so pleased with how it turned out, that I wanted to share it with you.

Stampin' Up! Sending Hugs stamp set, Create with Friends stamp set, Stampin' Studio

Color Combo

The main image in the Sending Hugs stamp set looks like this…
Stampin' Up! Sending Hugs stamp set, Stampin' Studio
…but I added a label over the “Hugs” to make it super versatile as I LOVE the flowers and greenery of the stamped image.  Here’s how I did it.

Measurements

  • Thick Basic White: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2 score at 4-1/4”
  • Misty Moonlight: 5-1/4” x 4”
  • Basic Black: 4-3/4” x 3-5/8” and 3-3/8” x 1-3/8”
  • Basic White: 4-1/2” x 3-1/2” and 3-1/4” x 1-1/4”

Instructions:

  • Run Misty Moonlight cardstock through Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die and attach this with Stampin’ Seal to the Thick Basic White piece which has been folded on score line to create a card.
  • Stamp large image from Sending Hugs with Memento Ink on large Basic White and color the leaves with Light & Dark Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and the Flowers and springs with Light Balmy Blue, Light Misty Moonlight and Light Night of Navy.
  • Paint Wink of Stella on all flowers, then using the Paper Trimmer, cut this piece into 3 strips that measure 1-1/2” wide and attach these 3 pieces to the large Basic Black piece with Stampin’ Seal, then attach to the card front
  • Ink up “Celebrate” from Celebrate with Friends stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink and stamp off once before stamping it on the small Basic White piece. Then stamp “Let’s” and “You” with Memento Ink.
  • Paint over “celebrate” with Wink of Stella, then attach this piece to the small Basic Black piece with Seal and attach the layers to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add three Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the sentiment piece.
