Whimsical Holiday Card for The Paper Players

If a cute and whimsical holiday card is your style, check out today’s elf card. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players.

whimsical holiday cardThis week, my friend Jaydee has a Clean and Simple theme challenge: The North Pole.  By Clean and Simple, we mean cards and projects which meet these guidelines:

  • Minimal layers and embellishments
  • Plenty of open space, aka “white” space
  • Simple and uncluttered

I used Stampin’ Up!’s  adorable #elfie stamp set in creating today’s card. I needed to create cards for my great nieces, and I think they will LOVE this cute fella! I hope you enjoy today’s whimsical holiday card, and that you will join in the fun at The Paper Players!

Who can blame this little guy for taking a break after helping Santa create presents for all the good little girls and boys! He was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends. (I have listed all of the colors I used in my free step-by-step tutorial, which you can download later in today’s post.)

Christmas Thank You Card for FF0047

I am always in need of thank you cards.  I especially like designing ones specifically for the holiday season, like this Christmas thank you card. This week’s Festive Friday Inspo List provided me with the perfect inspiration to make one.

Christmas Thank You CardThe Dashing Deer stamp set and coordinating Detailed Deer dies were my choices for today’s card. I selected woodland creatures,  gold, ribbon and a thankful theme. Won’t you select at least three items from this week’s Inspo List and play along with us?

I feel a little guilty about today’s card. Why?  Because it was so easy to make!  I wanted to make an elegant card, but there are so many possibilities with this design.   I wish I had time to whip up more of these Christmas thank you cards using a variety of designer papers.  However, I am flying out to Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage in Las Vegas, and I don’t have the time right now.  Hopefully when I get back, I can make a couple more of them.  I am thinking gorgeous plaid paper, and perhaps heat emboss the deer…or maybe some fabulous paper from the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Paper collection.  Or how about using Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper with copper accents?

Easy Christmas Tree Card for PP467

Looking for an easy Christmas tree card? Here you go! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

easy Christmas tree cardThis week, Claire has a trio of colors for us: Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, and Granny Apple Green.  Because I needed to add to my stash of holiday cards, I created an easy Christmas tree card.  Enjoy!

easy Christmas tree cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

It doesn’t get much easier than this cute card!  A  Stitched Shapes oval forms the backdrop for a Granny Apple Green gingham tree, which was punched out using the Pine Tree punch. Three Gorgeous Grape rhinestones provide a bit of bling.  Finish it off with a sentiment, and you are good to go! I used the adorable “Ho Ho Ho” sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid set.
