P is for Perfectly Plaid and Pine Tree Punch

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I’ve been making a lot of 3D projects lately so I decided to share a quick & easy card today using the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, Pine Tree Punch, and Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper. (Now that’s a lot of P’s!!!)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’ll get right to the details:

Measurements

  • Shaded Spruce card base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Mint Macaron cardstock: 3″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White: 2 1/2″ x 4″ to stamp 2 trees, 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside card
  • Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 DSP: 3″ x 5 1/2″, 3 x 6 for envelope flap
  • Gold Foil: 2 pieces at 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps to cut 3 stars

Directions

  • Punch 3 trees from the Mint Macaron cardstock with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the Mint Macaron to the DSP.
  • Adhere the Gold Foil strips to the top and bottom of the Mint Macaron.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink along the bottom of the card base and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. *I masked the top part of the sentiment.
  • Adhere the mint macaron layered piece to the card base.
  • Stamp the two trees in Shaded Spruce Ink. Stamp the leaves on top in Mint Macaron ink. Punch both trees out with the Pine Tree Punch and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut 3 stars from Gold Foil using Stitched Stars Dies. Adhere to top of trees with Liquid Glue.
  • Add Red Rhinestone Jewels to stamped trees.

  • Punch the envelope flap of a Gold Foil-Edged Envelope with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the 3 x 6 DSP inside the envelope flap so the plaid pattern is showing through the punched tree.

I’d like to give a shout out to Linda Heller (stampingschool.com) for this card design.  I saved it back in 2014 and can’t believe it has taken me this long to CASE it! I really like how it turned out and love that it was so quick & easy!

Here’s a look at the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch which I used to make this card. (*You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%.)

E is for Everything Festive

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! The Everything Festive Stamp Set will make sure you’re not at a loss for words. Celebrate Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day all with one stamp set!
Stampin' Up! Everything Festive stamp set - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can use the Timeless Label Punch, Stitched Nested Dies, or the different Layering Shapes Dies to highlight the sentiments on your projects.  I created four cards to share with you using the Everything Festive Stamp Set and Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Holiday card ideas using Scalloped Note Cards & envelopes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used several common elements on each of these cards. The sentiments are from the Everything Festive stamp set, heat embossed and cut with the Layering Ovals Dies. I wanted to use the layered scallop around the sentiment to tie it in with the scalloped note cards & envelopes. Each card has a 1 1/2″ strip of Designer Series Paper layered with Foil or Glimmer Paper. The inside of the card has a 1/2″ strip of the DSP with a 1/4″ strip of the same foil or glimmer paper. I had so much fun decorating the envelopes too! Here’s a picture of each card and coordinating envelope.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive and Feels Like Frost Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card uses the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, and Silver Embossing Powder. I heat embossed the envelope with snowflakes from the Seasonal Wreaths Stamp Set.

I couldn’t resist making another card with this gorgeous DSP from Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s layered with copper foil. The sentiment is heat embossed with copper embossing powder. Here’s a peek at how I layered the bottom of the card on the inside.

The repeated layers ties it all together and the envelope gives a sneak peek at what’s inside.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Halloween card idea using Scalloped Note Cards & envelopes and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is my favorite one! I just love the little spider on the envelope! My friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com), was visiting for the weekend and she suggested adding the spider. We always have so much fun stamping together and bouncing ideas off each other. The DSP is from Monster Bash and the sentiment on the inside is from the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set. (The spider is from the coordinating Wicked Dies. *These are available as a bundle.)

My last card is intended for Valentine’s Day; however, this sentiment could be used for any time of the year!

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Valentine card idea using Scalloped Note Card and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stamped the sentiment for this one in Real Red Ink then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. The red & white striped DSP is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper and layered with Red Glimmer Paper. I added a red glimmer heart on the envelope with a glue dot.  It is punched from the Every Season Punch Pack.  I used the coordinating stamp set, To Every Season,  for the inside sentiment. (The stamp set and set of 4 punches are available as a bundle too!)

I stamped the sentiment off to the side so I could write a personal message.

I just love how the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes were the perfect colors for my seasonal holiday cards! The note cards & envelopes come in a set of 20 (5 each of 4 colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Terracotta Tile). You can see more ideas for these note cards HERE.

N is for Note

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! I love the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes. These are the perfect size for a handwritten thank you card or to send a quick note to a friend.

I have been on a roll making note cards and have lots of ideas to share with you today starting with my new favorite, the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace Thank You Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used A Little Lace Stamp Set and stamped the background image in Early Espresso. The new medium daisy punch is the same size as the flower image.  (I just love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates products!) I had fun with the daisy punch and cut some from white cardstock, colored cardstock, designer series paper, and also stamped some using the Daisy Lane stamp set. Here’s a look at each of the different cards.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace and Daisy Lane Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Brights and In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Packs to cut the strips I adhered along the bottom. I accented the daisies with the Gold Gems and In Color Faceted Dots.

I got the Delightful Day stamp set for free at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage convention. I couldn’t wait to make the cards shown on page 34 in the annual catalog using the Scalloped Note Cards. Look how cute these cards look with the stamped flowers.

The White Stampin’ Chalk Marker and colored markers add a beautiful finishing touch! My daughter didn’t think they needed the strip of DSP at the bottom but I like how it highlights the scalloped edges.

One thing I like to do when I see a card I like is try to create something similar using different stamp sets and paper I have. Here’s another version of the cards above using a stamp set you won’t find in the annual catalog, Celebrate with Cake.

The hearts and flowers are from the Celebrate with Cake Stamp Set found in the Beginner Brochure. (Click on the link in the sidebar or at the bottom to view the brochure.) I used the Well Written Dies for the sentiments.
