Christmas Card using Christmas Gleaming from the Brightly Gleaming Suite

  • Brightly Gleaming Suite from Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog 
  • Bye Bye Christmas Card Classes

Christmas Card using Christmas Gleaming

Today's card is CASED directly from page 31 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I think this card is one of the reasons that Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and the entire Brightly Gleaming Suite was one of the first suites I added to my Shopping List back in August when the Holiday catalog was released.  I usually like to look at the catalog on-line so that I can increase the size of the sample cards.  The catalog photos are usually too small to do these wonderful samples from the Stampin' Up! home office justice.         

Today's card uses a basecard of Mossy Meadow.  Then a layer of Gold Foil Sheets dry embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, which is also part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite on page 31 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.            


I then die cut a Stitched Nested Label out of Whisper White and stamped the "jolly" sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  On additional pieces of Whisper White, I stamped the leaves from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  I colored the leaves with Light Mossy Meadow Blends Markers.  The berries I colored with Light Cajun Craze Blends Markers.  I hand cut the leaves and berries, and the Merry Christmas sentiment. I also used a print from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper in this layout.       



This card goes together quickly except for the fussy-cutting needed on the leaves and berries.  You'll love the look of this finished card, and Your friends will be impressed when they receive this beautiful card.  You'll love everything you make with the Brightly Gleaming Suite.

Bye Bye Christmas Card Classes

These two classes will be my final two Christmas Card classes.  With the busy Holidays approaching, there are many activities competing for my time.  I'm hoping to get one or two classes in during December, where I'm hoping to highlight New Year's cards and Holiday crafts.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrators, we're already looking forward to 2020 and the fun, new stamp sets we'll have for the rest of Winter, including Valentines Day, and then our Spring sets and new catalog.  We need to create our samples so you have enough time to see these new Stamps and coordinating products when the new year arrives.  You're likely to begin seeing sneak peeks from the new catalogs within the next couple of weeks! 

Join one these upcoming classes, to finish out your holiday card-making needs.

Long Class - Holiday Cards Class #13
If you're planning to send out Christmas Cards to family and friends 2-3 weeks before Christmas day, that means, your Christmas Cards should be in the mail during the first full week of December.  With fewer households sending Christmas Cards, your hand-made cards become even more meaningful.  Send meaningful Christmas Cards to your friends and family with these fun cards.  In this class create these 6 cards, which you can use as samples or templates to make more holiday cards on your own. You'll want to make sure you have all the supplies you need and enough time to complete your cards before December rolls around. 


We're using an assortment of Stampin' Up! holiday stamps sets, die cuts and foils on these cards, and you'll want to take a closer look at each of the cards we're making in this class.
