Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! for Dazzling Christmas Cards

  • Elegant Holiday Card using Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set
  • Pick up your favorites from the Clearance Rack

Final Christmas Card of the Season

Today's card uses the Beautiful Boughs Bundle, which is one of the Bundles that will carry over to next season.  Yeah!  I love this set.  It it beautiful alone, and I've used it with so many other Christmas sets and it always adds so much dazzle as a background or accent.  And the divine ribbon?  Where did that come from?  It was hiding as part of the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack. It adds such a stunning touch to this simple card.   

I used a Crumb Cake basecard to begin my card.  Then I began stamping pine bough images from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set  onto another layer of Crumb Cake.  I used Versamark ink and then covered the ink with White Emboss Powder, and heat set the images with my Heat Tool.        

The sentiment is also from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set.  I stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White using Crumb Cake ink.  Then I used the Beautiful Boughs Dies to Die Cut the sentiment.    I tied a bow using the Crumb Cake ribbon in the Come To Gather Combo Ribbon Set and wrapped it around the White embossed Crumb Cake Layer.  Then I added Dimensionals to the sentiment and added it to the face of the card.  

Because the Peaceful Boughs bundle will carry over to next year's catalog, I'm saving this card as I know I'll be making more of these to use next year.  So I'll purchase extra ribbon combo packs so I'm sure to have what I need.  

If you don't yet have Peaceful Boughs, you might consider purchasing the Bundle now, while you can still receive the Bundle price.  After January 2, you'll still be able to purchase the Peaceful Boughs stamp set and the Beautiful Boughs Dies, but not at the bundle price; only as individual items.  Save now, while also adding Clearance Rack items to your order. 

New catalogs have been shipped to all of my current customers, who purchased within the last 6 months.  If you don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the new, January - June 2020 Mini catalog, contact me for a copy of the new catalog.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Merry Patterns set special expires today

  • Merry Patterns can be your one set for cards this year
  • Earn a Merry Patterns Set through October 31
  • Join the November 5 Christmas Card Class 
  • October Specials end today

Merry Patterns set special expires today

Merry Patterns is the going to be the theme again today.  Why?  Two reasons.  1)  Today is the last day you can put in an order for $300 and receive the Merry Patterns set free  2)  I know many of you already have already received Merry Patterns, and I wanted to make sure you had several great ideas for using this wonderful holiday set.  I'm continuing to use the Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Basic Gray combination 

I'm rushing to get this post completed, which keeping an ear open for the door bell.  Last year, after 20+ years living in our home, we finally had our first trick and treaters!  I'm hoping this year we will continue to see those cute kids in their fun costumes again.  Candy treats are ready and sitting by the door, but its raining and its already growing dark, and I'm losing hope that any of the cute treats sitting by the door will be used.   Plus, the Astros are about to kickoff the 6th game of the World Series.  After the excitement of Game 5, where we won 13 to 12, I really want to finish this post and get in front of my TV!        

The basecard for today's card is Cherry Cobbler, then a layer of Whisper White, and then a layer of one of the patterns from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  The Elk image is stamped in Basic Gray outline and Cherry Cobbler, as is the sentiment.   I fussy cut the elk out leaving a thin boarder. The two other banners are Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray.     

The accents are the Metallic Foil Doilies and three White Perfect Accents. If this feels rush, it is.  If you have questions, don't hesitate to email me.  I really want to watch the Astros' game.  This card was one of the fastest to make in this series.

Take a look at all 8 cards I've created with the Merry Patterns set.  I've been having a great time working with this and you will too.   You can see closeups of the previous cards by scrolling through my previous posts from Monday, Tuesday and Thursday last week and yesterday.
