Christmas Cardinal in the Snow!

Stampin' Up! Oh Happy Day Cardinal Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I love pictures of red cardinals in the snow in the winter! It’s just something you see during the holidays…on cards and in photos. So I thought I might try to make my own red cardinal in the snow card! Pretty Paper Cards Stampin' Up! Cardinal Snow Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

To create the snow background I used the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It totally looks like snow, don’t you think? And to create more of a snowy effect, I used dies from two different sets. The swirls (snow swirls!) are from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, and the large snowflakes themselves are from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Oh Happy Day Cardinal Card - Peggy Noe Pretty Paper Cards - stampinupNow for the adorable little red (umm) cardinal. I know this bird isn’t really a cardinal, but he’s just SO cute!! And I don’t have a cardinal stamp, I have two cute birds from the Oh So Happy Stamp Set. So one of them just had to become a cardinal! I colored him with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends (and his beak and feet were colored with Daffodil Delight Blends!).

Don’t forget about the discounted and retiring items that are part of the Year-End Sales Event!

The Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies were used to make the snowflakes on today’s card, and they are retiring on December 30th. They have been my favorite dies from the Holiday Catalog! Here are some projects I’ve made using these great dies:

Stampin' Up! Feeling of Christmas Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Peggy Noe Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Today’s card is for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I’ve chosen the diagonal row from bottom left to upper right: heat embossed, patterned paper, and vellum.

I really like this Feeling of Christmas stamp set. It can be used all year round, wreaths are always beautiful! Here I’ve embossed the wreath with gold embossing powder for a holiday bling!

Pretty Pointer: The pretty red ornaments on this card are White Perfect Accents colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Isn’t that cool? You can color these White Perfect Accents any color you like!! How versatile is that?

Have you ever stamped on Vellum? It’s easy and adds a nice touch to any card. Here I’ve stamped the branch stamp from this set onto a 3/4″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Vellum. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a Real Red piece of card stock. These elements add interest and make your card fun!!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Christmas Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Wreath Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Look at this pretty wreath it makes! It’s stamped in Old Olive ink and the sweet little berries are stamped in Real Red ink. The “berries” are – I think – supposed to be sunflower seeds for fall, but they sure look great as holly berries!

This card was so much fun to make! I thought about putting whipped cream on top (instead of the black lid), but didn’t. I love the dies because you can do that, or anything, with your cup! There is even a tiny tag die and a straw!! How cute!
Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe Coffee - Peggy Noe - stampinupI also love the die for the “cuff” I think they call it–the usually brown cardboard thing you slip around the cup to keep the heat from coming through. For today’s card I used Real Red card stock to make the cuff, and I added a little oval piece for the sentiment “Merry” and little bits of holly. These stamps are part of the favorite stamp set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe Stamp Set - Peggy Noe - stampinupI can’t wait for you to see the three more card designs I’ve created for you! Be sure to order the Merry Cafe set before November 30 so I can send the tutorials for you.
