MERRY AND TYPE 15 Min. Card


I love using the Doubled Sided Designer Series paper to fill in a back ground
in just a few minutes.....instant color that I didn't have to color myself!
I've fallen in love with the GUMBALL GREEN (one of this year's IN COLORS) and find myself using it on almost all of my Christmas projects.
Here is a recent project we did in my Friday Stamp Club that was quick and easily made in 15 Minutes.

  1. Create a Gumball Green card base.
  2. Using BE OF GOOD CHEER 12x12 paper cut 2 panels measuring
      2"x 5 1/4". Adhere to base.
  3. Cut a Cherry Cobbler panel 2 1/4" x 4"
  4. Cut a Very Vanilla panel 2" x 3 3/4", attach to cherry cobbler panel.
  5. Stamp MERRY AND BRIGHT in Gumball Green ink on a vanilla piece.
      Punch out sentiment with the Extra Large Oval Punch.
      (it will just barely fit)
  6. Punch a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle out of Gumball Green card stock and adhere
      sentiment panel.
  7. Apply Rhinestones to the sentiment
  8. Cut a 2" x 1/2" piece of Silver Glimmer paper and adhere.
  9. Using Dimensionals POP UP the completed large panel with all the layers.
 10. Mini Sentiment..
      Punch a 1 3/8" square of Gumball Green
      Punch a 1 1/4" square of Cherry Cobbler
 11. Stamp image in Gumball Green ink and Punch with Postage Stamp Punch.
      Adhere the layers together. Pop up ONLY the bottom left hand side and
      place glue in upper right hand side to make it level with the previous panel.

TIP:  This is a GREAT TIME to make more than one card...remember you have all your supplies out....go for IT!

Scalloped Punched Christmas Tree



 How About S T R E T C H I N G the Use of Your PUNCHES?
The Original Concept came from one of my dear 
Stamp Club Members
Denise Pederson!
I mentioned that I would share it with you here on my site.
Thank You Denise for the inspiration for this adorable little tree!

You will need the 2 3/8", 1 3/4" and 1 1/4" Circle Scallop punches

Punch ONE of each Size to make one TREE
( I am showing 2 just to emphasize the punches )

CUT each of the 3 shapes in half

SCORE/FOLD each half in half
(2 folded halves for each size scalloped circle)

Using a BONE FOLDER take each wing and fold it down
to the center crease line

You will end up with a piece that look similar to a photo corner.
Start to build your tree with the largest size scallop circle first.
Place a glue dot on the underside of the tip of the bottom layer and slide
another corner on top of it. Secure in place.

Repeat with the next scallop circle size and finish the last
two layers with the smallest 1 3/4" scalloped circle. 
This is our newest punch and can be found in the 
Stampin'Up Holiday Catalog. pg. 7
#127811


You can also have fun moving your tree into a 
bent position. Just have fun with it!

NOW BLING IT UP with some SILVER GLIMMER PAPER
and some DAZZLING DETAILS , oh what fun it is to play!

ORNAMENT KEEPSAKES Tiles

HERE'S A GREAT WAY TO STRETCH THE USE OF YOUR
 ORNAMENT KEEPSAKES STAMP SET

1.  Create a Cherry Cobbler card base.
2.  Cut a Summer star fruit layer measuring 5 1/2" x 1 1/2".
3.  Cut an Artichoke layer measuring 4" x 4 3/4".
4.  The technique for the vanilla layer is fairly easy to do.
     Cut the card stock measuring 3 9/16" x 4 1/2"
     Stamp your images as above with Always Artichoke ink
          starting with the largest ornaments  first and filling in the empty 
          spaces with the smaller ornaments.
5. Once your ornaments have been stamped, your panel can be cut into several
      pieces. Cut every 1 3/16" across the top or @ 1 3/16"& 2 3/8 "
      (you should have 3 long pieces now)
      Cut 1" off of the long pieces @ both ends. You should have 9 pieces total.
 6.  Arrange your puzzle pieces to create 1/16" spaces between the rows. 
      TIP.... lightly mark the centers of each side on the artichoke layer to help     
               with lining up your layout of the pieces.
 7. To create your sentiment panel cut a Cherry Cobbler layer measuring 
      2" x 1".
 8.  Cut a vanilla panel measuring 3/4" x 3". Now punch the long edge with the
      punch. Cut and Trim the length down to  2 1/4" to fit on the Cherry layer.
 9.  Emboss a Summer Starfruit layer with Silver embossing powder
      using the Merry Christmas stamp from the Petite Pairs set.
      ( See embossing technique HERE )
