Christmas Pines Noel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Christmas Pines stamp set to create a Noel, or Christmas season card, for our hop today.  We are all playing with this sketch:

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

This stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies are still a favorite of mine despite all of the wonderful new sets in the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I started by dry embossing a panel of Garden Green with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Then, I adhered two panels of the fun Be Merry Designer Series Paper with liquid glue.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to then pop this panel onto my Cherry Cobbler card base.

Next, I stamped Noel in Cherry Cobbler onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips.  I also stamped the scrolly banner from the Christmas Pines set in Garden Green and fussy cut it out.  Noel was then adhered to the banner with dimensionals.  Several pine boughs were die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies  and adhered to the front panel with glue dots.  I added a couple of other sprigs of Cherry Cobbler to fill it out and popped the banner on with dimensionals.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some bling to the front.

For the inside, I stamped a pine bough in Garden Green, stamping off once on scrap paper, then stamped the sentiment right over it in Cherry Cobbler.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.  


Now, please head over to see Kristi Gray’s beautiful creation for today!

Christmas Pines for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

The Happy Stampers are back again, and I am posting a Christmas card using the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies. This is a wonderful set to bundle and save 10%.  There are 22 photopolymer stamps and 13 dies.  This bundle does not disappoint!  

 

Christmas

 

 

And, if you follow us every week, you know it is a sketch challenge this week:

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  I am so happy that I’ve been making them all along so that there is not a mad rush as we get closer to the holiday!  If you haven’t ordered the Christmas Pines bundle, you are really missing out.  I am in love with the pine cone die.  Doesn’t it look cool with this Copper Foil?

 

Christmas

 

The sentiment is also in the Christmas Pines stamp set.  I colored it with my Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping it onto the Whisper White.  Notice I also used the new Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper can also be sponged to highlight the raised images.  

Here is how I finished the inside:

 

Christmas

I stamped the pine bough stamp in Emerald Envy, then placed a couple of the bough die cuts from the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies on top.  I used liquid glue to adhere them. 

Stampin’ Up! products used and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to another Happy Stampers Blog Hop. We have a sketch for you today and I am using the new Christmas Pines stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my card.  

Here is our sketch:  

Happy Stampers blog Hop

 

 

I have to admit. this sketch was a little difficult for me at first, then the more I looked at it, I decided it reminded me of a Gatefold Shutter Card that I had made a while back.  So, that is what I made, using the new Christmas Pines stamp set bundle available on September 1st.  

 

 

Christmas Pines

 

I guess if you use your imagination, you might see some of the elements of the sketch, right?  I love this new stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies and I know you will. too.  Of course, everything in the new catalog is awesome!!

 

Christmas Pines

I also used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper which coordinates with Christmas Pines.  For a tutorial to make a Gatefold Shutter Card, click HERE.  Don’t you just love the look of the pine cone?  It is made with the new Copper Foil Paper also available on September 1st.  

Here is a shot with the belly band off the card:

 

Christmas Pines

 

The reason this is named a shutter card is when you open it up, it has a little shutter like a camera that opens to show your sentiment.  Mine really does open wider as it is supposed to, but I could not photograph it with one hand and open it properly with just my other hand, sorry!  
Christmas Pines

 

I needed a compact sentiment for the inside, so I chose the Merry Christmas from Better Together.  Hope you liked my card using the new Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies.  Make sure to add them to your wish list, and get ready, because September 1st is only a few days away! 

Now, let’s move on to see what Kristi has created for us today.  A list of our Happy Stampers Team is below the button.
