Christmas Cards

Christmas cards with matching envelopes.

This card features the Candy Cane Lane designer series paper along with the Holly embossing folder.
I highlighted the embossed Crumb Cake cardstock and envelope by rubbing the white craft ink pad over the embossing.
 

Love the Merry Medley background stamp!  The snowflake is from the Tin of tags stamp set and I also used the Merriest Wishes bundle.
 

The Pine Bough embossing folder is featured on this card and envelope along with the This Christmas designer series paper, Merriest Wishes bundle and a greeting from Reason for the Season stamp set.
 

Wonderful Year and Christmas Pines stamp sets are featured on this card of Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron (love that combo!).  Added a little silver embossing powder and silver 1/8" ribbon.
 

For this card I used the Joyful Nativity stamp set and a greeting from the Reason for the Season stamp set for the envelope along with Dapper Denim, Whisper White Thick cardstock and Silver Glimmer paper.

Reason for the Season

 
Thought I would pull out the lovely Reason for the Season stamp set.  I love the words in this set and the two-step stamping for the poinsettia.
The card base is Cherry Cobbler cut at 8-1/4" x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2".
On the front flap is a piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.
For the top panel I used a piece of Garden Green with a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Pine Bough embossing folder.
The greeting is stamped in Garden Green and the flower in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.
 
 
On the inside I used a greeting from the Wonderful Year stamp set.


 
In the center of the flower I added a little gold glitter.
 
 
 
Stampin' Up! has some fun sales planned starting November 21.

Vintage Leaves Hello

The Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating die have been favorites since they first came out.
 
 
For the leaf on this card I stamped the image with Always Artichoke ink on Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
The background is Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder and then sponged with Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, and Crushed Curry inks.
 
The little "Hello" is from the Banners for You stamp set and cut out with a die from the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits set.

Cable Knit Pumpkin

A couple of years ago I picked up an orange cable knit sweater at a thrift store with the intention of making a stuffed pumpkin with it.  That didn't happen and I don't even know where the orange sweater went to...perhaps back to the thrift store.
Anyway, that is what inspired this card...
 
 
Using a die from the Layering Ovals Framelits I cut out 3 ovals from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then embossed them with the Cable Knit embossing folder.  I then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink and then layered them together to create the pumpkin.  From Soft Suede cardstock I hand cut a stem and used a die from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits for the curly vine part.
 
 
The background is Very Vanilla cardstock stamped with the word "grateful" from the Endless Wishes stamp set in Sahara Sand ink.  The greeting and banner are also from that stamp set.

 
For the leaves I stamped a leaf from the Vintage Leaves stamp set in Always Artichoke on Very
Vanilla cardstock
and cut out with the coordination die in the Leaflets Framelits set.
I then sponged them with Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke and Soft Suede inks.
Last, I flicked dots of ink from the Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers.

Jar of Haunts with Candy Corn

 
Well, I am finally inking up some of the other stamps in the Jar of Haunts stamp set (so far I have only used the pumpkin image).  When I found these cute little individual bags of candy corn I knew I had to make these tags with the jar and candy corn to go with them.
 
 
I stamped the jar, candy corn, spider and treat saying with Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Cut out the jars with the Everyday Jars Framelits and the greeting with a die from the Tags & Labels Framelits.  I colored the candy corn with the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers
 I punched a hole through both pieces and then tied together with some twine from the Halloween Night Baker's Twine. Then I just stapled the tag to the top of the bag with the Handheld Stapler and Silver Mini Staples that are found in the Annual Catalog on page 185...I love this stapler and it is being discontinued so if you want it now is the time.  I have stocked up on the silver mini staples.
 
 
I miscounted and didn't make one tag for the number of jars I made so just stamped the "Happy Halloween" from the Jar of Haunts stamp set masking off the swirl that is under it.

Stamping on Fall Leaves

 
Oh my, I have been having fun collecting leaves and doodling on them but really my doodling was not what I imagined it would be so I simplified it with dots around the edges and words.
 
 
At first I tried a white gel pen but wasn't getting good results when I thought I would try the Stampin' Chalk Marker and it worked great!
Then not being overly impressed with my handwriting I pulled out the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad and it worked great.

 
So end result was I used the chalk marker for the dots around the edges and then stamped a word.
Love them!

 
I looked for leaves that were freshly fallen and still soft not dried.
They will curl up as they dry so after stamping and letting the ink dry, which didn't seem to take long, I pressed them under a large clear quilting ruler that I have...it wasn't too heavy and did the job.


 
Wouldn't theses be lovely on the Thanksgiving table?
