Create Christmas Cards in fun, non-traditional colors adding Wonderful Snowflakes in any color

          

  • Stampin' Up! Wonderful Snowflakes can be any color
  • Stampin' Up! Merry Moments Stamp Set
  • Stampin' Up! $75 Starter Kit Promotion Ends 30 November 2021
Today's card in non-traditional holiday colores uses Blushing Bride, Silver Foil, Basic White  and the Wonderful Snowflakes.  The Wonderful Snowflakes had a pearlescent side and a plain white side.  Using your Blending Bushes, you can color the plain white side to any our our ink colors to match your cardstock.  I colored mine with Blushing Bride ink to match the Blushing Bride cardstock on my basecard.  I added a sentiment from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set, a few Pastel Pearls and a Silver Foil stitched Snowflake and my card was complete.  If you're looking for a easy card layout for a large quantity of Christmas Cards, this card idea is a perfect time-saver.

The basecard for this card is Blushing Bride Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the  Silver Foil Sheets from the Silver Foil 12" X 12" Specialty Pack.  Then a Basic White Layer.

Next, I used a Blending Brush to color one of the Wonderful Snowflakes Blushing Bride.  Tip:  I found it helpful to color the Wonderful Snowflake BEFORE detaching it from the backing.  I also found that I could create a stencil effect while coloring the Wonderful Snowflakes with a Blending Bush.  So, I could stencil a snowflake image onto the front corner of an envelope at the same time I was coloring the plain side of a Wonderful Snowflake.  Once it was colored, I removed the Wonderful Snowflake from its backing and it was ready to add to my card front.

Before adding the colored Wonderful Snowflake to my card, I cut a piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge ribbon and layered it on my card.  Then I added the Wonderful Ribbon and then a Silver Foil Stitched Snowflake cut with one of the Stitched Snowflake Dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink onto the lower portion of the card.

Card idea using Blessings of Home Stamp Set and Flowers of Home Dies

         

  • Stampin' Up! In The Moment Stamp Set Sneak Peek
  • Hurry! Final Day. Season Sale ends Thursday, 18 November 2022
  • Combine Stampin' Up! $75 Starter Kit Promotion & Seasonal Sale for big savings
Here's another sneak peek of one of the stamp sets from the Upcoming January- June 2022 Mini catalog.  Its called Blessing of Home, and it includes a coordinating set of dies, Flowers of Home, and papers called Heart At Home Designer Series Paper.  This card idea is one of the cards we made when we stamped together during the recent 3-day Stampin' Up! OnStage@Home event where we received this set as part of our event package.  This was such a fast, easy card to create.  I used one of the Garden Green floral prints from the  Heart And Home 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.   The dies include one that die cuts the largest floral image.  the Denim Ribbon is the same we've had previously, so check your stash to see if you already have some of this fun ribbon.
 
Floral Thank You Card using Stampin' 'Up! Blessings Of Home Stamp Set and Flowers of Home Dies


The basecard for all three cards is Garden Green.  Then I selected a print from the 12" X 12" Heart and Home Designer Series Paper.  I used Shimmer white for the floral image which is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink  I then used a Blender Pen to pull the color closest to the inside of each petal towards the tips of the flowers.  The stamping together instructions suggested using the edge of a sponge dauber, but I couldn't get enough control with a sponge dauber and the switch to a Blender Pen worked better.

Next, then folded a piece of the Denium Ribbon and glued it to the back of the floral image.  I used a few glue dots to old the ribbon bends in place.  Then I added Dimensionals to the back of the floral image and added it to the front of the card.    

Foral Greeting cards using Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home


I die cut one of the sentiment labels using the Messages Dies that fit one of the sentiments in the Blessings Of Home Stamp Set perfectly.  I stomped it in Misty Moonlight to match the flowers.
