More fun Christmas card making with 6 x 6 DSP!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun, but simple card made with the Wrapped in Plaid 6” x 6” Specialty DSP and the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle! This week I’ve shared some simple cuts to get the most out of your 6” x 6” DSP and today I’m adding some additional elements with four different punches. The cut for the DSP is the same as my previous blog post, so you can make four cards out of four pieces of DSP. Itty Bitty Christmas is a must if you are looking for a variety of sentiments and the detailed dies that are a part of the bundle can add a simple, but elegant, detail to your card. 

With this design from the DSP, you can cut the design any which side and it will not matter if your card base is landscape or portrait. You start by cutting ¾” strip off one side, turn the DSP 90 degrees, and cut at 4”. You will end up with 3 pieces measuring 4” x 5 ¼”, 2” x 5 ¼”, and ¾” x 6”. This will be your base layer:

For the card front:

1. Use the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink.

2. Use the 1 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, this will be layered under the sentiment piece.

3. Use the detailed star die to cut out of a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. You will also want to use the single star die to cut a piece from the Gold Foil Sheet for the inside of the card.

4. For the 2” strip of DSP, use the Banner Triple Punch on one end and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on the other end.

5. Cut a piece of Braided Linen Trim long enough to tie thru the top of the tag top of the DSP.

The card base is Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 4” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. Adhere the DSP to the card base, tie the linen trim thru the tag top, and then adhere the tag to the middle of the DSP base layer:

Adhere the gold foil star die cut out to the DSP layers using your Fine Tip Glue Pen, adhere the scalloped layers together, and use a dimensional to adhere on top of the die cut stars. I used three of the 6mm Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to add some extra gold to the card front:

For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink, adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom and trim off the excess, and adhere the single foil star with the Fine Tip Glue Pen:

Lots of elements on this card that are easy to make! If you are looking for a stamp set bundle that easily coordinates with DSP, Itty Bitty Christmas is definitely worth looking at! Lots of sentiments and you can change up the look with the coordinating dies. If you have the Big Shot Precision Base Plate, I highly recommend using this to cut out any paper, makes it much easier to get those little pieces out! I hope you have enjoyed this week of 6” x 6” DSP cutting, since this is my only DSP for my holiday card making, I will always share how I cut this paper. Keep it simple and DSP can be your friend, no matter the size!

Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Valentine’s Day Theme Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller, I’m an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia, and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop or you have hopped on over from another site, thank you for letting me share my creation today! So, let’s get started!

For this blog hop, I thought I would create a sweet and simple treat bag which is easy to make using the Gift Bag Punch Board. This bag also includes a gift tag, which is another great way to use up those scraps! If you do not have the Gift Bag Punch Board and are interesting is seeing how it works, you can watch the video here.

For the bag size, I chose to use the small size, cut at piece of 8 ½” x 11” piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock down to 6” x 10”, and followed the punch board instructions for cutting and scoring. The multiple heart stamp from Forever Lovely was stamped on the front and back of the bag in Lovely Lipstick ink:

I used the 2nd largest elongated heart die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits to cut out one side of the bag:

I adhered a piece of Window Sheet, cut at 2 5/8” x 3 7/8”, over the cut out (on the inside) with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I put this aside with some stamp blocks on top to dry:

Using one of the leftover pieces of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, cut a piece at 2” x 4”, punch one end using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and use the scalloped edgelit die from Be Mine Stitched Framelits on the other end. The 2” x 3” piece of DSP is from All My Love DSP, large heart is from the bag cut out, the small heart is from using the coordinating die from Be Mine and the sheet of All My Love DSP, the sentiment is from Beauty Abounds stamp set in Lovely Lipstick ink on a ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock with one end punched with the Banner Triple Punch, and enough Silver Metallic Thread to wrap around your fingers a few times:

Adhere the DSP to the tag and then layer the two hearts on top. Place some adhesive on the back of the sentiment piece to secure the metallic thread and then adhere on top of the hearts with dimensionals:

By now the glue should be dry for the window sheet, apply adhesive to assemble the bag together. I put some Hershey’s Kisses in the bag, secured the top with a binder clip, and then used Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to thread thru the holes and tie into a bow:

The tag is then attached to the bag using Silver and Whisper White Baker’s Twine:

This is a fun and easy way to make little treat bags for Valentine’s Day, whether it’s for family, friends, co-workers, or even classroom treats! If candy is not an option for you, other little goodies can easily fit in this bag.
