Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Trees For Sale & Coordinating Tree Lot Dies


  • Stampin' Up! Trees For Sale & Coordinating Tree Lot Dies
  • News about August 2022 Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • Live Classes - August 25 & August 27, 2022
I'm always happy when Stampin' Up! offers FREE Sale-A-Bration selections that coordinate with current products.  I'm using the Trees For Sale Stamp Set from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog along with the Free Tree Lot Dies, A Sale-A-Bration selection that is sold out.  However, since they are sold out, that means many of you have this die set.  Reminder:  Stampin' Up! recently announced a number of additional Free Sale-A-Bration selections that you can earn with purchases of $50 or $100 before Sale-A-Bration ends 31 August 2022.I used Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Cardstock as my color theme.  I used Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper along with Soft Succulent for the die cut trees.  I used the Whimsical Woodlands 3D embossing Folder for the Soft Succulent Background, and for bling I added a bow of Evening Evergreen Windowpane Checked Ribbon and Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds.  This is a great time of the year to get a start on your Christmas Greeting cards.  You love working with the Trees For Sale Stamp Set to create cards you'll be proud to send.   Order before Sale-A-Bration ends and pick a selection for each $50 or $100 you spend.  

Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Trees For Sale Stamp Set

This card uses a basecard of Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  Then a layer of Soft Succulent Cardstock dry embossed with the Whimsical Woodlands 3D Embossing Folder.  The image layer is matted with a piece of Evening Evergreen  Glimmer Specialty Paper, and the image layer is Basic White with a piece of Lights Aglow 6" X 6" Specialty Design Series Paper.  

Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Trees For Sale Stamp Set

The three Christmas Trees are two-piece die cuts.  The background is Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper, and the foreground is Soft Succulent Cardstock.  Tip:  It is difficult to get glue or tape runner to stick to Glimmer Paper.  I use Adhesive Sheet on the back of my Soft Succulent Cardstock before die cutting the shape. Once cut, simply remove the backing and the shape adheres well to the Glimmer Specialty Paper.

Christmas Card with Evening Evergreen Glimmer Paper Christmas Tress using Tree Lot Diesusing

I used one of the sentiments from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set and stamped it on a piece of Basic White Cardstock using Evening Evergreen ink.  To finish the card, I added a bow using Evening Evergreen Windowpane Checked 3/8" Ribbon, and two sizes of Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds from the2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds pack.

Sweet Sunflower Paper Pumpkin Kit news  

If you, like me, are waiting for Stampin' Up! to announce refills for the Sweet Sunflower Paper Pumpkin Kit, we learned earlier today that Stampin' Up! will not be offering a refill kit for this month's Paper Pumpkin.  This was an extremely popular kit and with high sales, there aren't enough remaining to sell refills.  Of course stampin' Up! holds a few aside in the event a kit arrives damaged or is lost in the mail, which means there may be a few kits available 2-3 months from now, but as of today, there are no plans to sell refills.  Several demonstrators have already suggested that Stampin' Up! create a similar kit for the Kit Collections, and I second that idea.  This is one of the most stunning Paper Pumpkin Kits so far.

For a quick peek at the Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit, watch the unboxing video. 

Download the Stamp Case Insert here.

For inspiration, follow the Paper Pumpkin Facebook group.  There are already a number of customers who have received their kits and are showing alternative card ideas  for their kits.

Take a peek behind the scenes of the August Sweet Sunflowers original artwork on Instagram.

Did you know that each Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a Playlist?  Listen to the playlist as you complete your kit. Here's where you can check out the August Sweet Sunflower playlist.  I think my favorite is Sing a Song by Earth, Wind & Fire but Sunflower-Spider-Mad:  Into the Spider-Verse comes in a close second.  What's your favorite song from the playlist?
