Christmas Card making in full swing with Stampin' Up! Joy of Noel Stamp Set and Dies

With Thanksgiving finished, the December holidays are fast approaching.  Today, I'm using the Joy of Noel Stamp Set and Dies to create a Christmas card. This bundle is part of the Joy of Christmas Suite Collection, a must have for holiday card making in my opinion.  I'm using a color theme of Pretty Peacock, Soft Sea Foam and Cherry Cobbler along with Basic White.  I created a background of musical notes using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder on one of my Basic White layers.  I stamped the Noel in Pretty Peacock and die cut it using the Joy of Noel Dies.  I also stamped two of the same Christmas florals from the Joy of Christmas Stamp Set and colored them using Pretty Peacock, Soft Sea Foam and Cherry Cobbler Blends.  I also die cut two of the pine needle branches from Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  You can layer these as a background to your Noel words, or you can form them into a wreath under the Noel words.  I made two cards today and did both techniques to show you the different looks you can create.  Then, I used one of the sentiment labels in the Stylish Shape Dies to create a Pretty Peacock tag in the corner of my card.  I stamped the word Joyous using the Joy of Christmas Stamp Set, and then I fussy cut it leaving a small white boarder.  I popped it up on dimensionals and added it above the word Noel.  I also popped the Noel letters up on Dimensionals before adding them to my card.  Finally, I added a Lost Lagoon 1/4" Bordered Ribbon to the top of my Pretty Peacock tag.     You'll find several different ways to use the products from the Joy of Christmas Suite to create cards and holiday projects for those you love this holiday season.

    The basecard for the card above is Thick Basic White Cardstock.    Then a layer of Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  Then the next Basic White Cardstock layer is dry embossed using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  I also created Pretty Peacock pine branches using the Joy of Noel dies, and I created a tag in Pretty Peacock Cardstock using one of the sentiment dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

    Next, I stamped the Noel letters in Pretty Peacock using the Joy of Noel Stamp Set, and die cut them using the Joy of Noel Dies.  I also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink two of the Christmas florals and die cut them with Joy of Noel Dies.  Then I colored the florals using Blends in Soft Sea Foam, Pretty Peacock and Cherry Cobbler for the berries.

    Finally, I glued the colored florals and die cut pines needle pieces flat to the card front, and popped the Noel letters up on dimensionals before adding them.  I also stamped the word Joyous in Pretty Peacock, and fussy cut it before popping it up on mini dimensionals cut in half and adding it above the Noel letters.  I finished by adding a Lost Lagoon 1/4" Bordered Ribbon Bow to the top of the tag.

            New Online Exclusives coming to the Stampin' Up! store 7 November 2023

            Why does Stampin' Up! offer Online Exclusives?  Many reason, but one of the most important for me is that these products have an open-ended sales period. This means that unlike catalog merchandise that retires at the end of each catalog Online Exclusives have a longer exposure.  Also, Online Exclusives can react quickly to provide more niche products or relevant trends.  This allows Stampin' Up! to have something for everyone.  

            This also means that Online Exclusives will be released throughout the year rather than just with the three yearly catalogs or mini catalog.
