A Rustic Season like Christmas

eek! I missed posting yesterday! I am traveling and could not get my hot spot to work. After being hacked once on a trip I am so wary of using the hotel WIFI! So a day late, but I hope you like it!

The Stampin’Up! Season Like Christmas stamp set found in the Holiday Catalog is what I like to call a “sleeper”. I don’t think it has gotten the love it deserves, and it is adorable and so very easy to work with!

Stampin'Up! Season Like Christmas stamp set, holiday card, papercrafting, DIY, 2 step stamping, Chritmas tree

Details:

  • The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Reminder to score it gently with your scoring blade so that it folds crisply.
  • I added a layer of my *current* favorite green, Emerald Envy, 4 x 5 1/4″
  • The next layer is Crumb Cake cut to 3 3/4 x 5″. I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. When using one of our DYNAMIC plates be sure to use just one cutting pad.
  • This stamp set uses the 2 step stamping to create a beautiful detailed image. The first tree is inked and then “stamped off” before stamping on the Whisper White. The detail image is then inked and stamped full strength to add dimension.
  • The tree trunk is stamped in Early Espresso. I guess this is really a “3 step” stamp as those ornaments were added with a 3rd stamp. I heat embossed them in silver for a little shine,
  • The tree was cropped out using the Layering Ovals Framelits, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform. Reminder that when you purchase a Big Shot from me I gift you the Magnetic Platform ($40 value!)
  • The sentiment is also from the Season Like Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Emerald Envy and cropped out using a 1 3/4″ circle punch. I layered it on a silver foil doily
  • The Emerald Envy Crinkle Seam Binding is a sweet touch against the Crumb Cake

If you haven’t taken advantage of the free shipping from SU! it isn’t too late (well, as long as you are still reading this on Monday!)

I have a sweet and simple gift tag for you today that goes together super quick!

Stampin'Up! Merry Cafe stamp set, coffee cups framelits dies, christmas gift tag, diy, papercrafts, holiday

Details:

  • The tag base is a 2 x 4 1/4″ piece of Stampin’Up! thick whisper White Cardstock. I really like the weight of the Thick Whisper White for tags, they have a nice sturdy feel to them.
  • I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create the curves and hole at the top of the tag. I reach for this punch quite a bit, it has really become a workhorse in my studio.
  • I stamped the base of the cup in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of the Quilted Christmas Paper Stack and cropped it out using the Coffee Cafe Framelits.
  • Both the top of the coffee cup and the band were also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, this time on Whisper White and then cropped out using the Coffee Cafe Framelits
  • The sentiment is from Merry Cafe and is stamped in Emerald Envy
  • I added a little panel also from the Quilted Christmas Paper Stack, a wrap of Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon, and topped it off with a loop of Burlap Ribbon
