Fun and easy Triple Stamping card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy Triple Stamping card featuring the Heartfelt stamp set from the 2020 Mini Catalog! Since Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, I thought I would show you a #simplestamping card, with a twist! This stamp set is part of the From My Heart Suite, which has lots of super cute products for your Valentine crafts! Even if you are not that big into Valentine’s Day crafting, the stamp set with coordinating heart punches should get a second look! Layering heart punches? Yes, please! Super cute stamp set that you can use outside of Valentine’s Day? Of course! To refresh your memory, simple stamping is ink, paper, and stamps-that’s it! So, whether your limited by supplies, time, or just simply want to make a few Valentine cards, then today’s Triple Stamping card may be for you!

The cardstock colors I’m using are Whisper White and Real Red, you will cut three layers of Whisper White at 4” x 5 ¼”, 3” x 4 ¼”, and 2” x 3 ¼”. Then cut the base layer Real Red at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and then two layering pieces at 3 ¼” x 4 ½” and 2 ¼” x 3 ½”:

You will be layering the Whisper White cardstock pieces together, but NOT permanently. I use a small strip of snail on the back and then use my fingertip to tap it, this remove some of the stickiness, and then adhere the layers:

Since these are photopolymer stamps, I used my Stampin’ Pierce Mat underneath to get a good stamped image: first stamp the sentiment on the smallest layer in Real Red ink, stamp the arrow stamp in Smoky Slate, ink stamp the medium detailed heart in Rococo Rose ink, and the small heart in Real Red ink:

You will remove the Whisper White layers from each other, adhered the Real Red cardstock mat to the back of the Whisper White layers first, and then first adhered the middle layer to the Whisper White base layer, then the small layer:
This completed piece is then adhered to the Real Red cardstock card base (4 ¼” x 11”):

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink and the small hearts in Real Red ink down the sides:

Seriously, can you believe how easy this card is? You can easily make several variations of this card with different color combinations and take it up a step with the punches, three of the hearts in the stamp set coordinate with the two punches! I just love how fun the sentiments are from the stamp set and can be used for other occasions!

New Years Theme Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Groups New Years Theme Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop tour or have hopped on over from another blog, thank you for letting me share my creation with you today, so let’s get started!

I chose to create a card to celebrate the new year, which can be perfect for invitations if you are having a get together, a service professional, or even if you missed someone on your Christmas list! Whether it’s one card or several, this is very easy to make!

To start, your base layer with be a piece of Gold Foil Sheet, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then a piece of Basic Black cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”, to layer on top of the Gold Foil sheet:

I used two stamps from the Little Twinkle stamp set to create a “starry night” by heat embossing with Gold Emboss Powder:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Use the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out the balloons from the Gold Foil Sheet (the Basic Black cardstock will hide this) and use the numbers two and zero from the Make a Difference stamp set to heat emboss “2020” in Black Shimmery Emboss Powder.

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 1 ½” x 4 ½” and heat emboss the single star stamp with Gold Emboss Powder.

3. Use the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies to cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper to spell “Cheers”.

To assemble the card, adhere the embossed Basic Black cardstock on top of the Gold Foil Sheet, adhere the embossed Whisper White cardstock piece in the middle, and use Multipurpose Glue to adhere the die cut letters to the embossed Whisper White cardstock:

The balloons are adhered with dimensionals and then this completed piece is adhered to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the “Happy New Year” part of the stamp from Itty Bitty Christmas, and heat emboss more stars with Gold Emboss Powder:

Wasn’t that a fun and easy card to make? I chose to cut an extra piece of Whisper White cardstock for the inside, this way if you make a mistake, just flip it over and start again! For me, it never fails that I make some sort of “boo-boo” and this just makes it easier! I also love it when I’m challenged to make a card and try to figure out what I have on hand to make something for an occasion that I normally wouldn’t make!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which will be my final Christmas card I will be sharing with you for this season! If you’ve been following along, my goal this season was to use up ALL of my Wrapped in Plaid DSP and showing you how you can make the most out of your 6” x 6” DSP! With that being said, I started counting all my cards beginning with the Stamp It Group Christmas Blog Hop thru today’s card and I have made over 50 (I think it was like 52?) cards! Which isn’t too bad when you consider I only have one design (4 sheets) left of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP! I am going to make a few more cards with the last of the DSP, so I really accomplished my goal of no more paper hoarding, use it up and send it out!! Now, that DOES NOT mean I don’t have a ton of retired DSP, but I do use it up for other projects, like gift tags!

For this card, the base layer is Shaded Spruce cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder:

The next layer is this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, first cut 1” off one side, turn and cut at 3”, and then cut the 1” strip in half. This will give you two pieces at 3” x 5” and two pieces at ½” x 6”:

For the card front you will need:

1. 3” x 5” piece of DSP

2. Enough Gold Shimmer Ribbon to tie around the embossed base layer into a bow.

3. Use the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies to cut out “Ho!” three times from Gold Foil Sheets.

4. Use the puff paint along the top of the letters and exclamation point and set with your heat tool.

First tie the Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the middle of the embossed base layer cardstock and then adhere the DSP on top:

Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the letters to the DSP layer. Tip-I first lined up and adhered the top letters, then the bottom letters, and then the middle letters. I find this way easiest. This completed piece is adhered to a Night of Navy cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and adhere the ½” DSP strip along the bottom, trimming off the extra:

BONUS CARD:

Since you can make two of the above cards from one sheet of DSP, I decided to make an alternative card for those of you that may not have the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. I changed this up by stamping the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas on Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy ink, punch out with the 1 3/8” Scallop Punch, punch out a piece of Gold Foil Sheet with the 1 ½” Circle Punch to layer underneath, added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and the single snowflake is cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the Christmas Layers Dies. The inside of the card is the same, just changed up the sentiment:

Which of these two cards are your favorite? Or both? I know that die cutting letters can be a bit tedious, but the end result is so worth it! As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I will make gift tags for myself and family members at Christmas. This is a great way to use up your paper and make room for more! What I like to do, is take a 12” x 12” sheet of DSP and cut it up into 2” x 6” strips, use different tag topper punches, the Banner Triple Punch, and then various other punches to create super cute tags! That is the key, using punches because it is so much easier to punch 12 of one thing instead running a die through your machine 12 times (you can make 12 tags from one sheet of DSP)! Next week I will begin sharing with you products from the Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs!

Sending Joy this season

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another quick and fun Christmas card featuring the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies with the Wrapped in Plaid DSP! Christmas is only one week away! Can you believe it?? Are you ready?? All of my packages have been mailed and only a few cards are left that I need to get in the mail! Right now, my craft room truly looks like “Hurricane Christina” has been through here! So, if you have a few last minute cards to make, then today’s card may be for you! It’s very easy to make, especially for making multiples of.

The base layer is this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, first cutting a ¾” strip off one side, turning, and then cutting at 4”. This will give you one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at ¾” x 6”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Cut a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock at 3” x 4”, stamp the tree stamp in Versamark, and heat set with Gold Embossing Powder.

2. Use Hand-Lettered Prose dies to cut the word “JOY” out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

3. A 5 ¾” piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon to adhere across the DSP base layer.

Adhere the ribbon across the DSP, adhere the embossed cardstock (centered) on top of the base layer, and use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “JOY” letters on top of the embossed cardstock. Tip-cutting the Mini Dimensionals in half will hide them under the letters:

This completed piece is adhered to a Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Versamark and heat set with Gold Embossing Powder, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP across the bottom, trimming off the excess:

I just love the gold embossing with this card! This really is very easy to make multiples of with the die cut letters, you can cut the letters for each card at once with these three letters!

Sending you Happiest Christmas Wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a classic, yet elegant, Christmas card featuring the Wrapped in Plaid DSP with the Dashing Deer stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Deer dies! The inspiration for this card really is maximizing products you may already have and combining them with a few products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. The Dashing Deer stamp set and coordinating dies are a carryover from the 2018 Holiday Catalog and is one of my favorites! This easy to replicate card is perfect with the Wrapped in Plaid DSP by simply swapping out the colored cardstock if you want!

For this card, I chose this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and used one of my favorite cuts, one piece at ¾” x 6”, one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. The 4” x 5 ¼” piece will be your base layer:

For the rest of the card front you will need:

1. A 5” strip of the Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon.

2. Use the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.

3. Use the second largest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. This will layer under the Night of Navy cardstock circle.

4. Stamp the large flourishing deer stamp on Crumb Cake cardstock in Golden Glitz Metallic ink, use your Heat Tool to dry the ink, and then cut out with the coordinating die.

5. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the smallest layering Stitched Rectangle Die. Tip-if you are making multiples of this design, it is easier to cut out the Very Vanilla cardstock first with the die, save one of the outline cutouts, and use your Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment. This way you maximize cutting your paper and are still able to get a nice and even stamped image.

I first adhered the layered circles together and then adhered the cutout deer on top with dimensionals:

I adhered the ribbon across the DSP, along the bottom, and adhered the sentiment on top with dimensionals. I then adhered the deer piece to the DSP:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I decided to add a little bit more glittery bling by adhering three of the 6mm Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the deer:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom and snip off the excess DSP:

This really is a simple, yet elegant, Christmas card! It is very easy to replicate for making multiples of! Since I still have the 2” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP, I am going to use that to decorate the flap of my envelope and one of the smaller deer stamps on the front of the envelope. Pretty cards should have pretty and coordinating envelopes! 😁

Celebrate the Season!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another great way to maximize your Wrapped in Plaid DSP by making eight cards from one design! Don’t forget about Vellum cardstock, embossing is another great way to add accent to your cards! The Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder has been very popular, especially with the foil sheets, so I decided to try the folder with Vellum. This card design uses very few products, but is sure to be a favorite of the season!

I chose this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, first cutting 1” off one end of the DSP (vertically), cutting that in half (½”), and then turning the DSP to cut at 3”. This will give you two pieces at 3” x 5” and two pieces at ½” x 6”:

The base layer is Vellum cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D EF:

For the card front you will also need:

1. The sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the second smallest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

2. Use the leaf die from the Christmas Layers Dies to cut out two pieces from Shaded Spruce cardstock. I used a the 4mm Holiday Rhinestone Jewels, one in each color, and three of the 4mm Rhinestone Basic Jewels on each branch, on the circle part (or what I referred to as the “berry”).

First adhere the DSP to the embossed Vellum base layer and then you can hide your adhesive behind the DSP when you adhere the Vellum to your Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

I centered the die cut branches to the opposite corners, using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere, and then adhering the sentiment in the middle with dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink, and adhere the ½” strip of DSP on the side edge, trimming off the excess:

Can you believe that I made eight of these cards?? The most time consuming part was really cutting out the branch die and adhering the rhinestones. I did find that when I used any of the Christmas Layers Dies, if you use your Precision Base Plate instead of the Standard Cutting Pad, it is much easier to remove the cardstock from the die without tearing the cardstock, in other words, it cuts the cardstock better! On another note, after I made all these cards, I used up ALL of the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels!! For me that’s an accomplishment, I always have embellishments left over!

Sending Christmas Cheer Bridge Fold Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is super cute and easy Christmas bridge fold card! This design uses the Wrapped in Plaid 6” x 6” DSP that you can easily make more than one card of and use up almost all of your paper, which includes decorating your envelope! If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m on a mission to have very little, if any, products left over from the Holiday Catalog and I’m getting there!

Your card base is Cherry Cobbler cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and along the 8 ½” side, score at 2 1/8” from each end:

You will use this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, first cutting ¾” off one side, turn 90 degrees, and cut at 4”. This will give you one piece at 3 4/” x 6”, one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. Take the 4” x 5 ¼” piece and cut in half along the 4” side (at 2”):

Additionally, for the card front you will need:

1. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the tree image in Shaded Spruce ink and cut out with the coordinating die. Create the snow with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and use one of each color in 4mm and 5mm Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels for “ornaments”. Use the Twinkle Builder Punch to punch out the largest star out of Gold Foil Sheets for the tree topper.

2. Enough Gold Shimmer Ribbon to tie around the whole card base and into a bow. This will secure the card front closing.

3. Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.

4. Use the second largest Stitched Nested Label Die to cut out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Adhere the sentiment at the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock piece and then adhere the tree. Flip this piece over and adhere dimensionals only to one side. Tip-if you look closely, you will see the star at the bottom, I did this to make sure the dimensionals were on the left side of the image:

Adhere the DSP to each side of the card front flaps and then line up the Cherry Cobbler piece so that each pointed end is lined up with the flap openings to adhere to the DSP:

I used a strip of Tear & Tape across the horizontal middle of the card base and then placed the Gold Shimmer Ribbon on top, this will secure the ribbon in place. Flip the card over and tie the ribbon into a bow and trimming any excess off of the ends:

The inside sentiment is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink, and adhere the ¾” piece of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Super cute and easy to make, right?? I made four cards just like this, I really liked the idea of the tying the ribbon into a bow, that way when the recipient opens the card, it’s like unwrapping a present! For the remaining 2” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP, I used the envelope die from Beautiful Layers, however, if you do not have this set of dies, you can easily round the corners and maybe trim the DSP down a little more to fit on the outside (or inside!) of your envelope.
