Fun, Easy Holiday card using Star-Crossed Embossing Folder and Little Delights Stamp Set


  • Stampin' Up! Little Delights Stamp Set
  • Seasonal Labels dies and Star-Crossed Embossing Folder
  • Just Days remain to pick up Select Designer Series Papers at 15% off
As soon as I saw the sample card for the Little Delights Stamp Set in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, I knew I had to order it and couldn't wait to make the sample card.  It uses a technique called Stamping off so you only use two ink pads--Real Red & Pear Pizzazz--by Stamping off, you end up with additional colors.  I also used one of the dies from the Seasonal Labels Dies to create the label for the sentiment and added a gold Gilded Gem to the corner of the label to add a little bling to the card.  You'll have fun with the Little Delights Stamp Set as an all-around set for Halloween, Christmas, Thank You cards and Birthday Celebration.  This is definitely one of the must-have sets you'll want to add to your Mini Catalog purchases, when it begins 3 August 2021.  

Handmade Christmas Card using image of tree light bulb from the Stampin' Up! Little Delights Stamp Set

The basecard for this card is Real Red Cardstock.  Then a layer of Smoky Slate.  And the image later is Basic White, dry embossed using new Star-Crossed Embossing Folder from the upcoming July-December 2021 Mini catalog.   It creates a diagonal pattern that is half stars and half squares.

I used the little Christmas Tree light bulb to create the pattern on the right side of the card.  I stamped the little light bulbs BEFORE I dry embossed the Basic White sheet.  To create the different colors, I used the Stamping Off technique.  That's where you ink your image and stamp once full strength, and without inking your stamp again, stamp a light shade of the same image  I used this technique with both the Real Red and Pear Pizzazz ink.

Then I selected one of the dies from the new Seasonal Labels Dies that fit my sentiment, and die cut the label using Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.  I used the Merry Christmas stamp from the Little Delights Stamp Set for my sentiment.  Then I added a gold medium sized Gilded Gem to the corner of the sentiment label.
