Happiest Christmas Wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful Christmas card featuring the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper, In the Woods Thinlits Dies, and Dashing Deer Thinlits Dies! If you haven’t notices, but the Holiday Catalog is a huge hit and the Designer Series Paper is going fast! Luckily, Stampin’ Up! brought back the Dashing Along DSP (this was originally only available in September with a qualifying order), which instead of having the normal 12 sheets with 2 each of 6 double-sided designs, you get 12 sheets with 4 each of 3 double-sided designs! Having 4 sheets of the double-sided design means you can stretch out that paper for card making! For today’s card I am using one sheet of the double-sided design, so let’s get started!

The card base is Cherry Cobbler cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer of DSP is cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The next layer of DSP (which is the other side design of the base layer) is but at 3” x 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2e66

For the front of the card, you will need one each of the smaller deer thinlits from Detailed Deer cut out of Silver Foil Sheet, six each of the outline flower thinlit from Detailed Deer cut out of Silver Glimmer Paper, and one piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 1 ¼” x 4 ¼” and use the hill thinlit from in the Woods:

To create the hills, adhere one of the pieces to the DSP and then flip the other over and use dimensionals to adhere over the other layer. The deer on the left is adhered with to the top layer (apply adhesive to the lower half) and then adhere the deer on the right with Mini Dimensionals:

The base layer is adhered to the card base and then the scenery is adhered on top of the base layer. The six flowers are actually going to be snowflakes, the three on the scenery are adhered with Glue Dots and the three on the base layer are adhered with Mini Dimensionals:

The inside sentiment is from the Dashing Deer stamp set in Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler inks, on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock. I used my Stamparatus to position the top floral stamp, which I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color, and then turned the cardstock so the bottom was now the top, colored the stamp again, and then stamped the image. The sentiment is positioned below the floral stamp design:

This card is really easy to make multiples of when you use your Stamparatus for the inside sentiment, you can use two sheets of the DSP (and still have two more of the design left!), and there are three of the flower thinlits that are used to create snowflakes! With the busy holiday season, having a great card that you can make multiples of in a snap is a time saver!!

To You & Yours-Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are two alternative ideas for the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin, To You & Yours. I will first admit that I suspend my subscription from time to time, it just depends on if I feel I have enough time to spend playing and creating. I totally forgot to suspend November’s, I really didn’t think I was going to have the time; however, I am so glad I did forget! This month’s kit makes 10 super cute cards, but we all know we love to see the alternatives! These first two alternatives came to mind right away, so let’s get started!

For the card on the left, you will need the Cherry Cobbler and gold plaid base and one of the self-adhesive circles from the kit. Additionally, I heat embossed this deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set in Gold Emboss Powder, cut out the flourishing corner dies in Gold Foil, and used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends on one of the 4mm Clear Rhinestone Jewels:

To assemble, place the self-adhesive circle die cut in the middle, adhere the embossed deer on top, adhere the gold flourish pieces in opposite corners, and then adhere the colored rhinestone on the deer’s nose:

fullsizeoutput_2db3

This is then adhered to the card base from the kit with dimensionals and the inside sentiment stamps from the kit are in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green inks:

fullsizeoutput_2db6fullsizeoutput_2db9

For the card on the right, start with Cherry Cobbler cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and score at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2dbc

The base layer is Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF:

fullsizeoutput_2dbf

I cut the Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler plaid base layer from the kit in half, 2 5/8” x 4”, and then used four of the leaves and the adhesive back sequins. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, punched out using the Everyday Label punch, and then punched out another in Gold Foil, cutting it in half to layer behind the sentiment:

fullsizeoutput_2dc5

The gold foil is adhered behind the sentiment, adhere two of the leaves on each end, and then adhere to the plaid base with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_2dc8

The embossed base layer is adhered to the card base, I used dimensionals to adhere the plaid layer on top, and added some of the gold sequins for accents:

fullsizeoutput_2dcb

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, the leaves are stamped in Garden Green ink, and the stars are stamped in Daffodil Delight ink:

Aren’t these fun and easy alternatives for the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin?? For the second card, you can easily make two of these at the same time! I can’t wait to create more alternatives with this kit!!
