Night in Bethlehem Back & White with Fresh Fig Christmas Card

Today I am participating in the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop which is themed Black, White + 1. My chosen plus ONE is Fresh Fig which one of the 2017-2019 In Colours from Stampin' Up! and I paired these colours with the Night in Bethlehem stamp set from the 2017 Holiday catalogue.



I started this card my doing all the stamping I used Versamark ink which leaves the most perfect watermark to stamp the buildings repeatedly on the Fresh Fig card stock card front adding the Shepherd and his Lamb in the bottom right from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set. I also stamped from the same stamp set Mary, Joseph and the Donkey in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White card stock which I then die cut using the Bethlehem Edgelits dies in the Big Shot, I also die cut 2 Stitched Shapes Framelits using the squares in Whisper White and Fresh Fig card stocks. I arranged these elements into the stamped card front using Stampin' Dimensionals for the White Square Layer and stamped Mary, Joseph and Donkey. I attached the Fresh Fig stamped card front to a Thick Whisper White card base to completed the project.

Season Like Christmas with Merry Little Labels Any Occassion Card

I have tried to make this card using the Season Like Christmas and Merry Little Labels stamp sets from Stampin' Up! an all occasions card and not look like a Christmas Card some of my friends still think it screams Christmas. What do you think?


To make this card I stamped the trunk image from Season Like Christmas onto Whisper White card stock in Soft Suede ink then added the base leaf image in Old Olive which I stamped off for 2 of the trees. I added the shadow stamp under all the trees with Sahara Sand ink . The sentiment from the Merry Little labels stamps set is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink also into Whisper White card stock. I punched it out using the Everyday Label Punch as well an additional piece of Bermuda Bay card stock with I cut in half and used to matt the sentiment,  I it added to the tree piece using Stampin Dimensionals. I matted the card front in Bermuda Bay card stock onto a Wood Textures Paper which I made the full size of a card and attached to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Good Tidings and Merry Music Paper Christmas Card

I am really trying to get had of my Christmas cards this year I have a very large project for my youngest sons school looming. I really love the Holly for the Good Tidings stamp set from Stampin' Up! and paired it with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series paper to make this card.


I trimmed a card front of the Merry Music paper and stamped the 2 holly leaves from the Good Tidings stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive ink, berries in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler inks and the stems in Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks. I inked the Good Tidings stamp set with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White card stock which I then die cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits in the Big Shot. Next I added another stamped holly leaf to the sentiment, which I matted onto a piece Cherry Cobbler and then the music piece on Old Olive card stock and a Cherry Cobbler card base. For a finishing touch I added Wink of Stella to the Sentiment and Holly as you can see below.

Birthday Delivery with Balloon Celebrations Birthday Card

Since I have been sending out a whole lot of Birthday cards this year. I am starting to run low especially in more masculine cards. So I took Ballon Celebrations Stamp set from Stampin' Up! to make a simple generation stamped background.


I stamped the solid balloon from the Balloon Celebration stamp set starting with a row of Dapper Denim ink balloons a Thick Whisper White card base, the second row is stamped off once and the last row is stamped off twice creating an ombre look. The Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Delivery Stamp set and is stamped in Emerald Envy ink. I also stamped a Emerald Envy balloon on Vellum and punched it out once dry with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and added the balloons to the card using Glue Dots and finished by adding strings using the Black Metallic Thread to the balloons and attaching the end to swirls on the sentiment. For a finishing touch I added a few silver Metallic Enamel Shapes to the bottom of the card.

Night in Bethlehem Versamark Resist Christmas Card

I was up for a challenge over the weekend and dove into the latest Stampin' Up Colour Challenge and boy was it a challenge to us the Stampin' Up! Colours - Cajun Craze, Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand and Sweet Sugarplum. I paired these oculars with the Night of Bethlehem Bundle from the 2017 Holiday catalogue and lots of Vellum


I started this card with the piece of Glossy card stock and stamped the buildings stamp and the stars in Versamark ink from the Night in Bethlehem. While that was drying I die cut the buildings from the Bethlehem Edgelits in the Big Shot from vellum and sponged them using Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand inks placing them aside to dry. Going back to Glossy Paper make sure the Versamark ink is dry I added Sweet Sugarplum ink to the Sky and Cajun Craze to the ground blending and dating them into each other. Where I have stamped in Versamark ink resists the ink sponged over it. I adhered the dried vellum buildings to the Glossy card stock and stamped the sentiment from the same Night in Bethlehem stamp set in Cajun Craze on Vellum. I matted the card from on Sahara sand card stock and a Sweet Sugarplum card base.

Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper Halloween Card

Happy World Card Making Day. To celebrate I am participating in the Global Stamping Friends Halloween Blog Hop. I have used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! as the basis of the card. We don't celebrate Halloween as a family but thought I would step out of my normal and use my very limited Halloween Supplies and make this card. 


I wanted the centre that card around the Pumpkins in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and hand cut a few of them out. Next I chose 2 patterns of paper to create the base of the card the black Chevron and Orange squares. I added these to a co ordinating Cajun Craze card base on a Soft Sky matt. With my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker I added eyes and mouths to the pumpkins to make them into Jack O Lanterns. I added the pumpkins to a vellum Circle which I cut in the Big Shot with the Stitched Circle Framelits which I adhered to Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango card stock strips which I added to the black chevron base. I stamped the boo sentiment in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla card stock using the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set.

Climbing Orchid and Wood Textures Paper Card

I wanted to share with you my most recent card today using the Climbing Orchid from Stampin' Up! and 2 AMAZING offers that are running this month. These are a little further below in the post. 

I was challenged to use 3 colours in a card (Real Red, Pacific Point and Peekaboo Peach) on a group I am a part of on Facebook Stampin' Up! Colour Challenge and there are 2 ways to play along - ask for challenge and someone will give you a set of colours or join in with our weekly challenge it is up to you!!! #SUcolorchallenge


I started this card by making the orchids using the Climbing Orchid stamp set. I did struggle at first with these colours so I decided to water colour them so they blended better together. On water colour paper i stamped the outlines for the 6 individual orchid pieces in Peekaboo Peach ink. I did a first watercolour wash of Real Red ink with an Aqua Painter on the larger orchid leaving it to dry and the going back in and adding a touch of a Peekaboo Peach ink wash. For the smaller orchid I added a Pacific Point ink wash adding a second layer once he first was dry to add some intensity. I die cut all the pieces using the co coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits in the Big Shot. I curse the edged of the petal with my Bone Folder and attached the layers using Glue Dots, Stampin & Mini Dimensionals. I added them to Wood Textures Paper background that I stamped the stems from the Climbing Orchid stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I added the sentiment in Real Red Ink and added some Wink Of Stellar over it and the orchis centres to give it some sparkle. I matted the Wood textures layer onto a piece of Real Red card stock and then onto a Early Espresso card base. As a finishing touch I added some Pacific Point Glitter Enamel Dots.

Here is a closer look at the Wink Of Stellar Shine

Merry Little Labels with Merry Music Paper and Foil Snowflakes

I like to add some shine and different textures to Christmas cards as it reminds me of all the different textures that we decorate with at Christmas time. In the card I used the Merry Little Labels stamp set from Stampin' Up! as a starting point to build the card.


I stamped the "Eat Drink and be Merry" sentiment from the Merry Little Labels in Versamark then Gold Embossing on a Watercolor Paper Tag that I punched using the Scalloped tag Topper Punch. Next I added a watercolour wash using Cherry Cobbler Ink and an Aqua Painter brush, once dry I layered it onto a Foil Snowflake. The card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock which I layered with 2 pieces of Merry Music Speciality Paper. I added some of the Red Mini Tinsel trim to the hole in the tag adhering it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a final touch of shine I added some of the Gold Enamel Shapes to the Tag from the Metallic set.
