Last Christmas SAS Card - Scentsational Season

Here is the last card design for my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack next week.  I CASEd this card from someone, but I can't remember who.  To find out more about this SAS, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Northern Flurry Impressions Folder (p. 189).  I stamped one long side of a Gumball Green strip with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (p. 183), and then attached it to the back of the Whisper White layer.  I then punched out the flag end of the Gumball Green greeting strip with the corner of a 1" Square Punch (p. 183).  I then stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages set (p. 15) on the right side of the flag with Soft Suede ink, and attached it to the top, left of the Whisper White layer.  I then tied a piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (p. 172) to the left edge of the Whisper White layer, and then attached it to the Soft Suede card base.
 
I stamped the tree from the Scentsational Season set (p. 16 Holiday Catalog) onto Whisper White card stock in Gumball Green and Soft Suede ink.  I then stamped the star from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card stock in Raspberry Ripple ink.  I die-cut the tree and star with the Holiday Collection Framelits (p. 16 Holiday Catalog).  I attached them both to the bottom, right corner with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 177).  I then put the smallest-sized pearl from the Pearl Basic Jewels set (p. 175) to the center of the star. 
 
Stamps:  Scentsational Season & More Merry Messages sets
 
Ink:  Gumball Green, Soft Suede, and Raspberry Ripple Classic ink pads
 
Paper:  Soft Suede, Whisper White, & Gumball Green card stock
 
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Northern Flurry Impressions Folder, Holiday Collection Framelits, Scallop Trim Border Punch, 1" Square Punch, Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Satin Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, & Pearl Basic Jewels

Easy Evergreen Christmas Card for my SAS Next Week

Happy Wednesday!  This week is really going fast for me! :)  Here is the fourth card design (out of 5)that will be made at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack - Take Two next week.  I'll post the last design tomorrow.  To find out more about this SAS, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
I used two stamp sets and an Impression Folder from the Holiday Catalog on this one.  The two stamp sets are Evergreen (p. 18) and Greeting of the Season (p. 8).  I embossed the Real Red layer with the lovely Lacy Brocade Folder (p. 6), and attached it to the Old Olive card base.  I stamped "Noel" to the left side of a strip of Certainly Celery card stock in Real Red ink, and attached it across the middle of the Real Red layer.
 
I stamped the bold image of the tree onto Very Vanilla card stock with Certainly Celery ink.  Using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (p. 7), I stamped the outline image of the tree with Old Olive ink.  I stamped the star with Daffodil Delight ink.  I then attached it to the right side of the card.  The last step is attaching three small rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack (p. 175) to the bottom, left corner of the Real Red layer.  Super, quick and easy!  It's pretty, too!

 
 
Stamps:  Evergreen and Greetings of the Season sets

Paper:  Old Olive, Real Red, Certainly Celery, and Very Vanilla card stock

Watercolor Winter SAS Card & Win a Free CPC Subscription

Happy Monday everyone!  Today's card is another card design that will be made at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack on Tuesday, October 30 and Thursday, November 1.  To find out more about this event, please to to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
I CASEd this card from another demonstrator, Dora Visky.  As far as I can tell, she doesn't have a blog.  This card features two Holiday Catalog sets.  They are Watercolor Winter (p. 14) and Greeting of the Season (p. 8) sets.  I stamped the outline holly/berry stamp in Garden Green ink across the top of the Whisper White layer.  I then inked up the leaves of the bold holly/berry stamp with a Garden Green marker, stamped it onto a scrap piece of paper, and inked up the berries with a Riding Hood Red marker.  Then, I stamped it over the lined images to color them in.  I stamped off the leaves first so the green would stamp lighter so the green outline would show better.  I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (p. 7 in big catty) to line everything up, too.  I then attached it to the top of the Garden Green layer.
 
I then ran a narrow strip of Garden Green card stock through the Big Shot (p. 186) with the Petals-A-Plenty Impressions Folder (p. 189).  I then attached it to the bottom of the bigger Garden Green layer.  I then put a narrow strip of Riding Hood Red card stock between the stamped Whisper White piece and the embossed Garden Green piece.  Then, I attached it all to the Riding Hood Red card base.
 
The Riding Hood mat for the greeting was die-cut using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits (p. 191).  I then inked up the greeting with Garden Green and Riding Hood Red markers, and stamped it onto Whisper White card stock.  I then attached it to the center of the Apothecary Accent, and then onto the center of the narrow red strip.  Lastly, I attached two Large Pearl Basic Jewels (p. 175) to each end of the Apothecary Accent mat.
 
Stamps:  Watercolor Winter and Greetings of the Season sets
 
Ink:  Garden Green Classic ink pad; Riding Hood Red and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers
 
Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Garden Green, & Whisper White card stock
 
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Petals-A-Plenty Impressions folder, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, and Large Pearl Basic Jewels

Frosty Friends SAS Card

Here is another Christmas card that will be made at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack - Take Two at the end of the month.  To find out more, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
I CASEd this card from another SU! demonstrator, Leslie Orman.  As far as I know, she doesn't have a blog.  She shared it on Stampin' Connection, our Stampin' Up! Demo community.  What made me like her card was how she trimmed two of the curved sides of the Window Frame of the green mat.  It gives the Window Frames Collection Framelits (p. 30 in Holiday Catty) such a different look.  I'm going to be doing this a lot in the future, I'm sure.
 
I stamped the Frosty Friends stamp (p. 9 in Holiday Catty) onto Sahara Sand card stock in Basic Black ink.  I then die-cut it with a Window Frame framelit.  I colored the snowmen in with markers, stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages stamp set (p. 15 in Annual Catty), and sponged the "sky" around the snowmen in Pool Party ink with Sponge Daubers (p. 179).
 
After trimming off the two side curves of the Lucky Limeade frame, I paper-pierced it using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack (p. 30 in Holiday Catty).  You can get this paper-piercing pack free this month when you purchase one of two Ornament Keepsakes/Candlelight Christmas DSP bundles this month.  Both bundles come in either wood-mount or clear-mount.  To order one of these bundles, please go to my ONLINE STORE.  You'll need to hurry though.  The offer ends October 31!
 
 
 Stamps:  Frosty Friends and More Merry Messages
 
Ink:  Basic Black, Pool Party, & Midnight Muse Classic ink pads; Lucky Limeade, Midnight Muse, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write markers
 
Paper:  Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, and Sahara Sand card stock
 
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder, Window Frames Collection Framelits dies, Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Sponge Daubers, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Trimmer

Winter Memories Christmas Card

Happy Friday, everyone!  I promised a Christmas card for today, and here is a quick and easy one.  It's going to be one of the card designs for my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack on Tuesday, October 30 and Thursday, November 1.  To find out more about this class, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
This is the first card I've made with this beautiful set.  It's called Winter Memories, and it's on p. 19 in the Holiday Catalog.  The greeting comes from another Holiday Catalog stamp set, Greetings of the Season (p. 8).  I stamped the greeting in VersaMark ink onto the Cherry Cobbler card base, and heat embossed it with Pewter Emboss Powder (p. 159).
 
I stamped the sled image with Basic Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.  I watercolored it with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aqua Painter.  I really like how it looks on the Crumb Cake card stock.  It really gives it a great rustic feel.  The Always Artichoke card stock was embossed with the Woodgrain Impressions Folder (p. 33 in the Holiday Catalog), and then layered onto Chocolate Chip card stock. 
 


Stamps:  Winter Memories & Greetings of the Season
 
Ink:  Basic Black Classic ink pad and VersaMark ink pad
 
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake card stock
 
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine; Woodgrain Impressions folder; Heat Tool; Emboss Buddy; Pewter emboss powder; Aqua Painter; and Regals Collection & Neutrals Collection Watercolor Wonder Crayons
