Glimmer Merry Christmas

Hello Stampers!

Today I have one last Christmas Card idea for you. Another one that is quick and easy.

Remember my tip:  make some extra cards now for next year!

Once again a very simple but stunning card. Some Christmas DSP for background and some Red Glimmer Paper and you are all set. The Merry Christmas Thinlits are fantastic…look how beautiful the lettering is. Those little Silver Foil stars add just an extra touch of bling. 


This sentiment came from Star of Light Stamp Set as well as the clusters of stars done in silver ink.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Star of Light

Ink – Cherry Cobbler, Silver

Paper – Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Festive Farmhouse DSP, Glimmer Red, Silver Foil

Accessories:  Merry Christmas Thinlits, Star Punch


I hope you enjoyed my weekend of Christmas Card ideas. Eight days left until the “Big Day”.

Look forward to a new post next Friday…until then…Happy Stamping!     Donna



“Merry” Christmas Card

Hello Stampers! Today I have another Christmas Card for you. This is a quick card to make. 

That delicate label came from the Stitched Labels Framelits. Great die set! I must admit I used a retired embellishment but the new Snowflakes and Stars Wire Elements would look super.


Isn’t this sentiment great! It comes from the Stamp Set Merry Christmas to All. So all this card needs is one stamp set and one die! Add some DSP, ribbon and an embellishment and there you go.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Merry Christmas to All

Ink – Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow

Paper – Whisper White, Festive Farmhouse DSP

Accessories – Cherry Cobbler Ribbon, Linen Thread, Embellishment Charms, Stitched Labels Framelits


This is a lovely and quick card to make – for all those last minute cards you need. It’s also a great card to use up your small pieces of Christmas DSP. It wouldn’t hurt to make some extra cards now for next year…that will give you a head start and believe me…it makes you feel good when next year rolls around. 🙂

One more Christmas card idea tomorrow…until then…Happy Stamping!     Donna

Sparkling Poinsettia

Hello Stampers!  It’s been a while since I last posted but I’m back with some Christmas cards. I know it’s getting late but you can do it! The other day I made 10 cards in about 2 hours. It’s actually quite easy when you do assembly line work. 🙂

Today’s card is my favorite for this year. It looks like a lot of work but with the dies it is pretty fast. 


The red cut out is done all in one swipe so that’s pretty quick. It’s difficult to see but the white background is actually Sparkle Glimmer Paper. That gives the card so much pizzazz.

Once again one run with the Big Shot gives you both these cut outs since the set includes 2 dies of holly. Pretty smart of Stampin’ Up!



One stamp set covered all the sentiments. This Peaceful Poinsettia Bundle is a real keeper! There are so many ways to use these two items


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Peaceful Poinsettia

Ink – Markers – Garden Green & Real Red

Paper – Real Red, Garden Green, Old Olive, Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Whisper White

Accessories – Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits, Oval Framelits


Since we’re so close to the end of card mailing time…I plan to give you a post each day of this weekend. Cross your fingers I can pull this off. 🙂

I  hope you enjoyed this lovely card…like I already said…it’s my favorite.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Christmas Card but until then…Happy Stamping!     Donna

Christmas Stockings

Hello my dear Stampers!  Have you been super busy with all the hustle and bustle of this wonderful season?  The November Paper Pumpkin was just so darling…but I decided to do it my way.

I added initials for each member of the family coming to Christmas dinner…then ran each stocking through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.


Then I added the tags with last years red “ribbon” and a sprig of leaves from the new leaf punch.

I filled each stocking with a lip balm and either bubble gum for the kids or candy for the adults…oh, everyone also got a candy cane. These will be at each person’s place at the table. 

I had so much fun making these and I hope everyone will enjoy them on Christmas Day.

Slow down and enjoy the season…stay healthy!

Happy Stamping!    Donna

Patchwork Christmas

Hello Stampers!  Today’s card is made with the Quilt Builder Framelits. I REALLY like this set of dies and the matching stamp set. I have so many friends who are quilters that this set will be used over and over in so many different ways.

This is another card we made in our Christmas Card Class and I made about 20 myself…this is one of my cards I’m sending to friends and family. I actually made enough extras of each of the Christmas Card Class examples to fill my own personal card list. Yay!

Sorry about the deep colors…I’m trying out a new editing app since PicMonkey no longer offers FREE editing. I need to work with this new one to get the hang of it.

We had so much fun with this card. We actually die cut each piece then put it back together to glue it into the frame of the patchwork. Trust me…we learned that isn’t necessary…you can just die cut the DSP, die cut the black frame, adhere frame over DSP and you’re done. Why didn’t I think of that when I was creating this card!!!

The extra touch of holly leaves really adds to this design.

I LOVE this sentiment…what it says and the font.

This inside sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Versatile Christmas. I find that after the Holiday Catalog ends we never see some of our favorite stamp sets or dies again. Don’t let that happen to you…if you really like something in the Holiday Catalog then buy it BEFORE January 2, 2018


Stampin’ Up Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Christmas Quilt, Oh, What Fun (on the envelope), Versatile Christmas (R)

Ink – Real Red, Garden Green

Paper – Real Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, Black, Quilted Christmas DSP

Accessories – Quilt Builder Framelits, Paper Punch (for berries)


I hope you enjoyed today’s post and card.

This is such a wonderful season for making and sending cards. It’s still not too late to make your own cards for sending. The design can be simple and your family and friends will be so impressed and you will get pleasure out of making them. If you need help with ideas…just give me a call or email me. Together we can come up with something to your liking.

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!     Donna 🙂


Deck the Halls Card

Hello Stampers…it’s been a while. 

Today I have a very nice Christmas card that we made in our Christmas Card Class. There is just a bit of detail but so worth it.

You can see that we used dies, and lots of Stampin’  Dimensionals.  I love the added touch of the little poinsettias popped up. The colors are basic Christmas colors…Real Red, Emerald Envy and Whisper White.

A simple sentiment finished this card off.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Carols of Christmas, Greetings of the Season (R)

Ink – Real Red, Stampin’ Markers (Real Red & Emerald Envy)

Paper – Real Red, Emerald Envy, Whisper White

Accessories – Card Front Builder Thinlits, Layering Ovals Framelits


Hope you enjoyed seeing today’s card.

Night in Bethlehem

Hello Stampers! I’m really into making Christmas cards right now since I have a craft fair coming up in October. This is card number 1 for this month’s card classes. When I saw this bundle (Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set and Bethlehem Edgelits) I knew I had to have it. 

I was inspired by several different cards I’ve seen. The dies in this set are awesome. 



This card was well received by my first class and I’m pretty sure that tomorrow’s class will like it as well. 

The card base is Sahara Sand cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″

The Whisper White measures 4″ x 4 1/4″  (I also did the same on the inside with a verse.)

The black strips on top and bottom are just strips of black cut at 1/4″ x 4 1/4″


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Night in Bethlehem

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Sahara Sand, Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil

Accessories – Bethlehem Edgelits


Try this card…it really is very nice and I like that it’s not using the usual Christmas colors. 

Until next time…Happy Stamping!    Donna
