Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 2 / Merriest Moments

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s Day 2 and I have a beautiful card to share with you today! It comes from the Merriest Moments bundle which is found on page 23 in the June thru December Mini Catalog …. and is retiring 😦

This stunning card was created for my Holiday Stamping Retreat but since it’s on our Last Chance list, I thought I would share it will you. It’s way to pretty not too!

I began with a Very Vanilla card base and from there … it’s layered with Gold and Pearlescent Specialty Paper. You will find both the Goil Foil paper and teh Pearlescent paper in the Annual catalog – pg.139

The Pearlescent card front is embossed, and then another layer is embossed and die cut to add a beautiful layer to the card.

On top of the die cut foliage is another layer of Gold Foil and then I embossed the greeting onto the card. A poinsettia was die cut for added texture and design. To complete my card, I added some of the gold “Festive Pearls.

With just some basic cuts and some die cutting, then embossing your greeting … this stunning card is ready to send to your friends and family.

Now I have some news for you about Stampin’ Up!s Last Chance list and more …

The Merriest Place to Be …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a HAPPY Friday to you all. Today I have two cards to share with you. Yesterday I shared my Be Dazzled card from the amazing Merriest Moments bundle, and near the end I said I thought it would look good with a Evening Evergreen base … so here it is!!

I liked yesterdays card, but I really like it with the Evening Evergreen card base. It’s pretty elegant. My next card is also using the Merriest Moments but it’s a fun & simple card.

I used a card base as I did above, this time in Whisper White … the card front is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and is embossed with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Folder.

I complimented the embossed card front with the Wonderful Snowflakes in the Mini Catalog.

The greeting comes from our bundled stamp set and was stamped onto Basic White cardstock and die cut with the die included with our bundle … it fits perfectly in the framed space!

I told you this special bundle is so fun to use! This is only the third card that I have shared so far, and each of them are so different.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have the “merriest” of weekends ~

Make your Merriest Moments Bedazzling!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And how are you this fine day? The weekend is almost here, the kids are returning to school and I am busy preparing for some amazing upcoming events!! First off, my clubs start up in only a couple weeks, then there is World Cardmaking Day on October 2nd and my Stamping Retreat in early November! I can’t tell you how much fun it is to sit down and just make cards … then I pick out which ones I’ll be using for each event!!

Last week I shared this card from the amazing Merriest Moments bundle. Here is the link to the blog post if you’d like directions for this cards … CLICK HERE!

Today I’ve created something magical … I teamed up the Merriest Moments with the beautiful Bedazzled Special Paper from our Sale-a-bration Catalog! You see, with the purchase of the Merriest Moments Bundle, you can get this dazzling paper for free!and that is what Christmas is to me.

You will begin with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock … your card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Then you will use the Bedazzled as your front piece. Both of these pieced will be run through your Cut & Emboss machine. When doing the card base it’s easiest if you have your score line for the fold done first so you can align the edge of your folder to the score line.

Once you have both pieces embossed, you will see how the Bedazzled paper will nest nicely onto the embossed image on your card front and the pretty little snow flakes show through. And yes, this bundle comes with the embossing folder, dies and stamp set.

The greeting comes from our bundled stamp set and was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Evening Evergreen, and die cut with the die included with our bundle … it fits perfectly in the framed space! To complete the card I added some of the Evening Evergreen Rhinestones from the 2021-23 In-Color Gems to carry through our glitz for the holidays.

This special bundle is so fun to use, and you’ll be creating wonderful holiday cards for your friends & family in no time. This sweet and simple card is so easy to make, yet looks so pretty and elegant!

If you wanted to make this card more elegant, I would make the card base in the Evening Evergreen as well, and carry that rich color throughout the entire card!!

Together creates the Merriest Moments

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

When do you start making your Christmas cards? Some of my stamping friends are just choosing their designs, while others are done! Oh my! I am not that prepared … teehee! Today I have a most wonderful card to share with you, and I’ve used an amazing bundle which has some unique qualities and I’ll walk you through them.

This is really a simple layout but the uniqueness of this bundle makes it look like you’ve slaved the afternoon away, when in fact, you’ll just run it the your Cut & Emboss machine a few times and you’ve created something magical … and that is what Christmas is to me.

You will begin with two pieces of Mossy Meadow cardstock … one for your card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and your front piece 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Both of these pieced will be run through your Cuti & Emboss machine. When doing the card base it’s easiest if you have your score line for the fold done first so you can align the edge of your folder to the score line.

Once you have both pieces embossed, set aside the card base and take the quarter sheet and die cut it using the “largest open die” …. it will nest nicely onto the embossed image. And yes, this bundle comes with the embossing folder, dies and stamp set.

Now that the front is die cut, you will notice that it also layers nicely onto the embossed half of the card base, but before you attach it (we used dimensionals) use your sponge daubers and add some Mossy Meadow ink onto the edges … this gives you some dimension by adding a soft touch of the same color.

The greeting comes from our bundled stamp set and was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Mossy Meadow, and die cut with the die included with our bundle … it fits perfectly in the framed space! To complete the card we added some Opal Rounds to add a touch of glitz for the holidays.

This special bundle is so fun to use, and you’ll be creating wonderful holiday cards for your friends & family in no time. And the sentiment says it all during the holidays … Together is the Merriest Place to be!
