Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin UP! Santa's Workshop Memories & More card pack, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I have 3 adorable Christmas cards to share with you today!!  These cards were created with the Memories & More Card pack, the Buffalo check background stamp, and Real Red cardstock.  They are super easy to create!  For the card above and below, Cindee and I die cut the Santa Bag Memories & More card with the Layering Ovals oval framelit, then added the cute Santa cap to the elf (it's a sticker in the package), layered that onto a Garden Green Scalloped Oval die cut, and then added an addition elf and stamped greeting. The stamp is from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and die cut with the Farmhouse Framelits (order them as a bundle at 10% off!).  Find the bundle on pg 13 in the Holiday catalog or below in this post with a link to my online store!

The bow is punched out with the Candy Cane punch and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

For the card above and below, I cut off 1/2 of the front of a standard fold card and so it opens like a dutch door.  The Buffalo Check is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on all of the cards, onto Whisper White cardstock. 

The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Festive Farmhouse stamp set, stamped in Real Red.

Watercolor Pencil Coloring on Country Home Stamp Set

 Coloring is therapy to me.. I love to color.  So I love the outline image stamps from Stampin' Up! and I tried out my Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils on my Country Home stamp set and love the results!!  I used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the colors on the Whisper White cardstock.

 

Coloring with Watercolor Pencils and the Stampin' UP! Country Home stamp set.  Handmade card by Patty Bennett featuring the Tin Tile Embossing folder in the background. www.PattyStamps.com

In addition to having fun coloring on this card, I also love the background!! I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder found on page 43 in the 2018 Holiday catalog (same page as the Country Home stamp set, and the beautiful Country Lane designer paper). 

After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile Embossing folder, I used a sponge dauber to add a little Gray Granite and Soft Suede ink to the raised parts.. just here and there to give it a bit of a weathered look.

After coloring the greenery/flowers and the can with the Watercolor Pencils and blending with a Blender Pen, I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the can.. I love it!

 The card base is a standard size Thick Whisper White folded card, and the tin tile embossed piece is 4" x 5-1/2".  I used a strip of Country Lane designer paper peeking out the right side, and some 3/16" braided trim on the left side of the card.   The little die cut shape was a limited time product a couple months ago and is retired, but you could easily use a die cut oval.

Wreath Card idea for Christmas with Peaceful Noel set

 

Would you believe me if I told you this card intimidated me!? 

I was afraid to try this "random stamped wreath" Christmas card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set.   It was one of the projects I made at Kurstan's BINGO event last month.. it's it amazing!!  AND it was super easy and I LOVE how it turned out!

 

Christmas Wreath card idea stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 1:

Trace an oval or circle onto your Whisper White cardstock paper as a guide for stamping.

Use the pine sprigs and other leaf images in the Peaceful Noel set (pg 29 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE online) and stamp randomly around the circle or oval. We used Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  Stamp berry image in Merry Merlot ink randomly around the wreath.

 

Christmas Wreath stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 2:

Add a 4" strip of the Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon across the wreath, then add a piece of Joyous Noel designer paper on top of the ribbon.

Tuck punched sprigs under the ribbon.  They are punched with the Sprig punch and the Joyous Noel Tranquil Tide glimmer paper.

(All of these supplies are available in my online store - order anytime by clicking on any of the product images at the bottom of this post)

 

Christmas Wreath stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

Step 3:

Layer the whisper white stamped cardstock onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and onto a folded Crumb Cake card base.

Stamp the greeting in Merry Merlot ink onto a stitched shape framelit oval and add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

TIP!  buy the stamp set and sprig punch in a money-saving 10% off bundle!  See it HERE.

Step 4:

Don't forget to "gussy up" (as my grandma would have said) the envelope, too!

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! In The Woods tree framelits, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Swirls & Curls embossing folder and designer paper. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut trees are from the In the Woods framelit set on pg 27 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  (here online)

TIP!

I had 80 trees to spritz, so I put a few dozen at a time into 2 tins and spritzed them with the Frost White Shimmer Paint in my Stampin' Spritzer.  They only take moment to dry, then I repeated this until they were all white and shimmery!!  I bought the "lasagna" pans at the Dollar Tree store.. 2 tins for $1 :)   If you have not spritzed with the shimmer paint yet, watch my VIDEO HERE.

Beautiful Baubles Rainbow Pad Christmas Card idea

 

Looking for a super quick and easy holiday card?  I love to make handmade cards for the Christmas Holidays, but since we send out well over 100 each year, sometimes it needs to be a quick card like this one!  Try out a Spectrum Rainbow pad and the Beautiful Baubles stamp set from Stampin' Up! for a beautiful card with lots of pizzazz!  Find the Beautiful Baubles stamp set on page 10 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, or HERE online.

I stamped the ornament image twice using my inked rainbow pad and then mounted it to a Fresh Fig cardstock mat embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.  For shimmer and shine, I sponged some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion of the embossed image and then added some Frosted & Clear Epoxy droplets!

Don't you just love the background!?  It's the Swirls & Curls embossing folder shimmered with some Champagne Mist shimmer paint and a sponge dauber!  I layered the embossed Fresh Fig piece on a Blueberry Bushel folded card, and tied it all up with some ruffled Fresh Fig ribbon!

Pop Of Petals card with Four Petal Punch

 I was adding Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to these Pop of Petal flower images on one of my recent videos (here),  so then I decided I needed to use these flowers on a card!!  I created this lovely summery, tropical card with the Tropical Chic bundle, Tropical Chic paper and some Frosted Floral paper!  Neat combo, right?
