Perfectly Pretty Christmas Trees!

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card is made with some of my favorite things 🙂 I started with some colors that I love: Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron. They aren’t really Christmas colors are they? But it’s interesting that they look so nice together.

Start with a Whisper White card base cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. A piece of the Subtles Designer Series Paper in Mint Macaron was cut at 4″ x 5-1/4″ and placed on the card base. On Melon Mambo card stock, stamp three trees from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Versamark Ink. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Punch out the embossed trees with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch, and adhere onto the Mint Macaron piece as shown above.

This is such a great bundle! Stamp the sentiment on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Melon Mambo ink. Fussy cut the sentiment very close to the stamped image. Cut the stitched label from Whisper White card stock using the Stitched Labels Dies.

Some Rose Metallic Thread was added under the stitched label using the technique described in the video below. Metallic Thread is easy to use once you get the hang of it 🙂

Adhere the sentiment on top of the stitched label and your’ done! Enjoy making these fun Christmas cards!

Sweet Christmastime Tags!

Stampin' Up! Christmastie is Here Suite Tags - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The Christmastime is Here Suite is SO versatile! Why? Because you can order any of the products in the suite separately! That means that if you only want the gorgeous Designer Series Paper, order it! But I will tell you that the entire suit is beautiful 🙂

Stampin' Up! Christmastime Tag - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

To create today’s tags, start with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock cut at 4-1/2″ x 2,” and punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 2″ piece of the green patterned Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper and adhere to the tag as shown. Cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon 2″ long and adhere with Multipurpose Glue above the designer series paper.

The opposite side of the green designer series paper is clusters of roses. Fussy cut a small rose with leaves attached, set aside. Using the Leaf Punch, punch two clusters of leaves from Soft Sea Foam card stock. Using a bone folder, by hand score down the center of each leaf. Fold each leaf in half lengthwise along the score line. Sponge each leaf with some Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. Punch one cluster of leaves from Gold Foil. Using the Sprig Punch, punch two sprigs from Mossy Meadow card stock. Set aside.

Using the edge die from the Roses Dies, cut an edge piece from Gold Foil. Adhere the gold edge piece on the left side of the tag with Multipurpose Glue as shown. Adhere the leaves with Multipurpose Glue from the bottom up as shown, alternating and layering one on the other. After the glue has dried, adhere the rose using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Add a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots for bling. Thread some Gold Shimmer Ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag, and tie a bow of Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon around the Gold Shimmer Ribbon as shown.

Create a Golden Advent Journal!

Stampin' Up! Advent Wreath Journal - Peggy Noe- stampinup

Advent is the season before Christmas, specifically, the four Sundays before Christmas. I’ve discovered that it’s nice to keep an Advent Journal, or a record of prayers and thoughts during the Advent season. This year I decided to create my own journal using the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Journal.

Stampin' Up! Advent Journal - Peggy Noe - stampinup

A layer of Shimmery White card stock was stamped with the crown stamp from the Wish for it All stamp set using Pretty Peacock ink, and then watercolored using an Aqua Painter to spread the ink. After this piece was completely dry, it was adhered to the cover of the Pressed Petal Journal. The All Around Wreath Dies were used to cut two wreaths, one from Gold Foil and one from Pretty Peacock card stock; then they were adhered to the watercolored piece, offsetting one from another. A piece of Gold Foil was stamped with the crown stamp in Versamark ink, and then sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder and heated. It was then cut out with the Doily Wishes Dies.

A few leaves were cut from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Flourish Dies. These are some of my favorite leaf dies 🙂 The leaves were adhered to the lower right side of the wreaths with Multipurpose Glue, and the crown was adhered on the left side using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stampin' Up! Advent Journal Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The sentiment is from an older retired set in my personal collection. It was gold heat embossed on a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock and then cut with a banner die from the Doily Wishes Dies and sponged with some Golden Glitz Delicata ink. A piece of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon was wrapped around the cover of the journal and tied in a bow.

I’m really looking forward to using my journal over the Advent season! Why don’t you make one too? Send me a picture of your journal, I’d love to see what you create!!
