World Card Day Blog Hop with Stampin' Up! Products

  • Welcome to World Card Day Blog Hop
  • World Card Day Specials
  • Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin BOGO - until Oct 10 2016

It is World Card Day, and you can make this project and other listed at the links below at the World Card Day Hop with current Stampin' Up! products.  You are currently on my blog, Donna Ross from Stamped Sophisticates.  There's a list of names at the end of these card instructions you can use to hop to other blogs for some fantastic ideas for using Stampin' Up! products.

Let's get started.  This card is very fast and can be used for a make-and-take or as a card for a Christmas card class.  It can easily be stepped up to a more detailed carding using other elements from the Christmas Magic stamp set that coordinate with this snowman image. Also, you can easily change the colors on this card to any of the current catalog InColors with their matching ribbons.  Additional sparkle can be added by using the Wink of Stella pen, but I chose to keep this card simple.

Below is a single image of the card.  Click the image for a closer look.  Although this is a fairly simple card, the dry embossing and layers provide a lot of texture.  Also check the World Card Day specials from Stampin' Up! below to save on the 2016-2018 In Color card stock specials, which includes the Flirty Flamingo cards stock.  All 5 of the In olor card stock can be used to make these cards and each color also has coordiating ribbon.

Christmas Magic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Christmas Magic (142116-wood; 142119-clear)
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black (Archival)
Paper: Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White

Accessories:  Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Raunched Ribbon,  Aqua Painter Layering Circles Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Standard Cutting Pads, Thin Die Adapter, Big Shot Platform, Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

Here's a stepped up version of this card with a different color combination.  The addition of the trees from the Christmas Magic stamp set give it just a bit more flair without much more work.  I cut out a mask to cover the snowman before stamping the trees.

This card uses Cucumber Crush as the accent color for card stock and ink for the trees, and 5/8 " Cucumber Crush ribbon (141429) from the main Stampin' Up! catalog
