Today’s cards are classic with the black and white buffalo checks. Buffalo checks are SO popular right now, and Stampin’ Up! has got you covered. The Buffalo Check Stamp is a wonderful background stamp and it gives you the freedom to create the checks in any color you like! Buffalo checks are a great background for almost anything else you want to do!
For this card, begin with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Whisper White card base, scored at 4-1/4.” Stamp a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock with the Buffalo Stamp and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Tie some Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the Buffalo Check piece and tie on the front in a pretty bow.
Today I’m using an image from the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper. It looks like a bouquet of roses! The cluster of roses was fussy cut using Paper Snips and raised up on Stampin’ Dimensionals above a piece of Vellum punched out with the Starburst Punch.
The “Thank You” sentiment is from the Parcels & Petals Cling Stamp Set. Stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Two new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots were added for a bit of bling! 🙂

The Stampin’ Up! Gold Mini Pizza Boxes from the Holiday Catalog are sooooooo darling! First of all, how cute is a mini pizza box? And then to make it gold? It’s over the top cute! These boxes are food safe (perfect for cookies and brownies!) and they are easy to decorate. I’ll be using them to wrap quite a few of my gifts this year!
Today’s box has been decorated using a belly band that goes around the box. I like to use a belly band for wrapping because it can slide off for easy opening while keeping the pretty decorations intact. For this box the belly band is a 12″ x 2″ wide strip of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. Wrap the strip around the box and secure one edge of the paper to the other with a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the top of the box. Then wrap around a 12″ piece of 1/2″ Very Vanilla and Copper Classic Weave Ribbon that has the words “Merry Christmas” printed on it, gluing the ends together on the top of the box.
Cut a piece of Real Red card stock with the large label die from the Stitched Label Dies. Adhere over the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Cut three Whisper White snowflakes using the dies from the Seasonal Layers Dies and adhere on top of the label using Multipurpose Glue. Cut two sets of leaves from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Flourish Dies. Adhere with dots of Multipurpose Glue to the center of the label as shown.
Pretty Pointer: When cutting glimmer paper with dies, turn the paper upside down with the glimmer portion on the bottom. Then set the die on the back side of the paper and cut.
Cut the little dear from Gold Foil using the smallest of the Detailed Deer Dies. Adhere over the glimmer leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a red rhinestone either as an eye, or as a nose for the cute little deer 🙂
The Christmas Rose stamp set is so pretty. I love roses; my craft room looks out on a small rose garden and it inspires me constantly. I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! has come out with this spectacular rose stamp and coordinating dies and more, all part of the NEW Christmastime is Here Suite available today!
There are many ways to use this stamp set…watercoloring, heat embossing, watercolor pencils, and Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers! That’s the way I’ve colored the rose here. Lovely Lipstick Blends, both dark and light, give this rose it’s shading. And Soft Sea Foam Blends have added color to the leaves.

It’s definitely not too early to start planning and making your Christmas cards. And with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and coordinating Merry Christmas dies you can create beautiful cards! Today’s card is just a sampling of what can be done with this amazing set.
Here the beautiful Real Red Ruched Ribbon steals the show. To create this look, tie a big bow and leave long tails. Adhere the bow to the card with Mini Glue Dots and then run the ribbon out on each side looping the ribbon up and using Mini Glue Dots to adhere when bringing the loops down to the card.
This is not the most “mailable” card, but it does show you the beauty of the stamp set and coordinating dies. The color palette is Real Red, Pool Party and Whisper White. This is a nice “frosty” winter color combination.
The background paper is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the paper uses this same color combination shown above. The word “Merry” was cut out of Real Red card stock using one of the dies from the Merry Christmas Die set.
