One of a Kind or 100 of a Kind

Merry Christmas to All with Merry Christmas Thinlits

What’s your Christmas Card stamping style?

Is each card you make unique and created just for the recipient? Or do you make all of your cards the same and stamp them in batches?

If you need to make a lot of cards this year, consider making a quick and easy card like this one. It takes just a few minutes for each card and you can assemble on the go if you need to  – sitting at kids activities, on a lunch break at work or even while traveling. 

For this card, I used the Merry Christmas to All Bundle which include the stamp set and Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. I created the background with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The card is Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand and Gold.

How many cards will you be making this year?

 

Merry Christmas to All in Merry Merlot by Stampin Up

The Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper has 24 sheets of 6″ x 6″ glittered sheets in Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide and is a great product to coordinate with the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Christmas Pines

Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlits

 

With all of the pine and pinecone themed products available in the Stampin’ Up! Canada Holiday catalogue, it is easy to coordinate them to make cards like this one.

This Christmas card pairs up the Christmas Pines stamp set and Pretty Pines Thinlits with the Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Mini Pinecones.

I used Crumb Cake for the card and included Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride as accent colours.

The greeting was stamped in Crumb Cake ink and is also from the Christmas Pines stamp set. The stamp set is a set of 22 photopolymer stamps and if you choose to bundle with the 13 matching thinlits dies from Pretty Pines, you’ll save 10%.

 The detail on the Pine Bough Textured Impression Embossing Folder really helps highlight the background layer.

 I layered solid pinecones in Crumb Cake underneath the Very Vanilla pinecones with the open spaces and added a mini pinecone between the two hanging with Linen Thread.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

 Detailed Santa Thinlits with Greetings from Santa Stamps

I absolutely love this Santa! The swirly details on the thinlits make it so unique. And really easy to assemble. I cut out the card front, added a Red Glimmer Paper square and then adhered the Detailed Santa Thinlits cut out frame with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

The "Merry Christmas" greeting from the Greetings from Santa stamp set was stamped in Real Red ink and added to the card with one end cut at an angle and the other tucked into a swirl on the Santa.

If you are looking to make Christmas cards that will stand out from the rest, this is the one to send.

 

 

Detailed Santa Thinlits by Stampin' Up!

 Since the finished card size is 5" x 5", I used 12" x 12" Whisper White card stock to make this card.

Simple Card Making – Paisleys & Posies

Paisleys & Posies Navy Card Stampin Up

 

This Paisleys & Posies card was simple to make as the only stamping is the greeting on the inside. I cut a 1" wide piece of paper for the edge and then added a layered square of copper and Night of Navy. To the top, I added a leaf created with the framelit. And that was it. Done.

 I added some Copper Metallic Thread under the Copper Foil Sheet as another accent. Both of these match the copper foiled navy paper from the Paisleys & Posies Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

 

 Paisleys & Posies Bundle

 The Paisleys & Posies Bundle includes the photopolymer stamp set, a set of 18 and the 19 coordinating framelits.

Paisleys & Posies Candy Bag

Stampin Up Paisleys & Posies Candy Bag

 

I was shopping at Bulk Barn recently for Halloween candy and saw these chocolate truffles in one of the bins. They reminded me of the Paisleys & Posies Specialty Designer Series Paper so, of course, I needed to buy some. And they are yummy!

I don’t really give out candy for Thanksgiving but thought that these would look nice at each place setting at dinner and help decorate the table.

I cut the top off of a clear medium envelope and then added the candies and tied off the top with twine.

To make the tag, I cut my polka dot card stock to 2" x 4" so it would fit the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I stamped my greeting in Night of Navy ink onto Delightful Dijon card stock. With the stapler, I attached the the Delightful Dijon ribbon from the 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack to the tag under the greeting.

Finally, I added some Paisleys & Posies framelits cut outs including the Copper Foil Sheets metallic leaf shape.

You could also make these bags focusing on Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, or Mint Macaron the other colours featured in the paper instead of the Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy.

 The Paisleys & Posies Bundle includes the stamp set and the Paisley Framelits Dies. Added the coordinating designer paper and trio of ribbons and you can create lots of cards, home decor items and more.

Star of Light, a quick and easy elegant card

Star of Light Christmas Card

This star is so pretty. Can you see the lines coming out from the middle? This bundle is made up of the Star of Light stamp set and Starlight Thinlits. The lines shooting out from the center of the star are part of this thinlit so the work is all done.

I added a greeting, included in the stamp set. Almost all of the included greetings include a reference to light, bright, star or shine so this set is wonderfully themed.

If you are looking for an elegant, unique stamp set for your Christmas cards this year, definitely consider this set. Without a lot of stamping or a difficult technique, you can make cards everyone on your list will love to receive.

 

Star of Light by Stampin Up

 I was surprised by how quick this card was to make. The big Sweet Sugarplum inked swirl takes up most of the card front and I just added a few stars in Rich Razzleberry.

 

 

Starlight Thinlits

 I cut out a second star from Rich Razzleberry card stock to place behind the Gold Foil Sheet star as a bit of a shadow.
