Holiday Stamp-a-Stack: Lots of Joy Merry & Bright Cards

Current Classes

Current Specials


Hi Stamping Friends!

Today, I want to give a shout-out to Ellen & Amber who are co-hosting a private class with me tonight.  They were unable to attend my October "Last Thursdays" class, but loved the projects, so we are doing those same cards at their event!  This is a great example of how I can customize a class for my stampers!

I Bet You Didn't Know:

  • If you can't attend my class, gather up 6 of your friends & I'll bring the class to you!
  • If you're worried you won't have enough guests, co-host with a friend & split the Stampin' Rewards!
  • If you don't have enough space, consider having your party at my studio!

Moral of the Story—If you want to stamp, I can make it work for you!

Lots of Joy Merry & Bright Cards

The second project from my November Holiday Card Stamp-a-Stack Class is so quick & cute!  It features the beautiful papers from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper pack in traditional colors and designs!

Background Basics—I texture embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Smoky Slate with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, then adhered it to a Whisper White card base.

Merry Banners—I selected three different patterns from the Merry Moments 12×12" DSP pack to make three banners: 3/4" x 4", 1" x 4-3/4", and 1/2" x 4-1/4". They were "fish-tailed" on the ends by hand; cut a slit up the center, then trim each side corner to the top of the slit.  They are adhered with SNAIL.

TIP: This is a great way to use up those skinny scraps of DSP!

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Lots of Joy greeting in Cherry Cobbler onto a 3-3/8" x 2-7/8" piece of Whisper White, then matted it onto a 3-1/2" x 3" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.  After tying some Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker's Twine around it and into a bow, I popped it up with Dimensionals onto the card front.

Plaid Pine—The Lots of Joy tree is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Whisper White card stock, then punched with the coordinating Tree Punch.   It's adhered with Dimensionals and accented with a single Rhinestone Jewel.

Two Cool—The background of my second version is embossed with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  The sentiment layer is vertical this time and instead of a bow, I tied a knot and unraveled the ends. I moved the banners to the side, too.

Three Cool—On the last card, I embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder, went back to the horizontal greeting layer and positioned the bow at the top. 
I love playing around with the same elements to create different looks, even if they are just subtle!
Thanks to Diana Gibbs for this fun card idea!
