Cup of Christmas Card: Stamp Review Crew

Are you in need of a little something-something for a hot chocolate, tea or coffee loving friend? How about this Cup of Christmas card with matching K-cup holder?  It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew:  Cup of Christmas Edition!

Christmas K-cup holder with cardIf this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop, whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Cup of Christmas set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Charlet Mallet.  Charlet’s work is always fabulous! After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the amazing Linda Callahan.  I absolutely love her work. Be prepared to be inspired as you travel along on today’s hop!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

A few adorable touches make today’s Cup of Christmas card extra special. With its die cut candy cane and Puff Paint whipped cream,  this card should delight the recipient.

Cup of Christmas cardThe Night Before Christmas 6″ x  6″ Designer Series Paper is so nostalgic,  and pairs perfectly with the Real Red and Pretty Peacock cardstock which was used.  I LOVE this cup of hot chocolate and cookies pattern.

Merry Moose Card for The Paper Players #466

Moose and plaid make me glad, and I hope they do you, too.  Get ready for today’s Merry Moose card.  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Christmas Moose CardThis week,  Anne Marie has an “Into the Woods” theme for us.  She is challenging us to create projects which feature “woodsy” elements like woodgrain paper,  wood texture, trees, cabins, forest critters, plaid and more.  I went with plaid, trees, and a very recognizable forest critter in creating my Merry Moose card.  Enjoy!

Merry Moose cardColors of the Day

The background on today’s card was created by sponging the night sky area with Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather inks.   The tree images were stamped multiple times using Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock inks.

merry moose cardSparkle Glimmer Paper snow drifts were hand snipped and layered.  Pretty Peacock ink was sponged onto the edges to make the separate layers “pop”.

merry moose cardWhat about those touches of gold? The pine boughs, left over from a previous project,  were die cut using the Beautiful Boughs dies.  As for the moose,  punching it out is so easy!  Gold Glitter Dots and a gold double bow were the only finishing touches this card needed.

Snowman Easel Card

If you are looking for a winter card which is not your ordinary fold,  how about this fun Snowman Easel Card?  It’s time to play at Festive Friday!

Snowman Easel Card

This week, we were inspired by National Button Day.  Your goal is to pick at least 3 choices from our Inspo List and incorporate them on your project.  I selected fabric, circles, and fun fold.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

Snowman Easel CardColors of the Day
snowman easel cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I’ll admit it. I don’t do a lot of fun folds because I find them scary. I know, I know. This is just a Z fold type easel card, but I had never tried one before because I thought it would be hard. Pffft! Was I ever wrong. It was not only easy, it was fun. I guess that is why they call them FUN folds!  Be sure to click on the tutorial button to get all the step-by-step details, along with measurements, on how I made this card.

The card base was simple. It began with a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, scored at 5-1/2″ and folded.  The easel section was 4″ x 10-1/4″,  scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″.

Snowman Easel Card

I used patterns from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper collection to adhere to the sections.

Snowman Easel CardI decorated the larger section with Sparkle Glimmer Paper snow, tree, and snowflakes.

Snowman Easel CardThe snowman takes center stage. He was snipped from the designer paper, and “dressed” in felt pieces from the Let It Snow embellishment kit.  He is standing in Sparkle Glimmer Paper snow.  Once again, the details can be found in the tutorial.

It’s AWESOME! I purchased it as a preorder item, and to be honest, I was a little hesitant to do so. Sorry, Stampin’ Up!, but I was never a fan of our older trimmer. (I was still using my retired guillotine cutter for most of my cutting.) However, I sometimes need a Paper Trimmer, so I thought I would give it a try. Oh. My. Gosh. I LOVE it! I find myself using my new Paper Trimmer more and more, and my old cutter less and less. The cuts are clean, and not fuzzy. Order your new paper trimmer today and experience it for yourself!
