Stampin' Up! Christmas Card Ideas using Bright & Beautiful, Cheerful Christmas, Nature's Peace, and Nordic Noel

My Stamping Friends,

Check out the amazing projects posted by Stampin' Up! on their blog that were created by their Sr. Staff Writer, Cindy B.

If you’re a papercrafter, Christmas is probably one of your busiest times of the year. And I don’t know about you, but I pretty much want everything in this year’s holiday catalog . . . so deciding what to buy has become a serious problem for me! Is anyone else in the same boat?

For instance, I love the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper house design—and thought it would make a cute focal point for a card. So I cut out a row of them and adhered them to a Whisper White Note Card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven Ribbon bow, a bit of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, and stamped the cute little “Merry Christmas” from the Holiday Home Stamp Set in Real Red ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Finally, I punched out the sentiment using the Large Oval Punch and adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To me, this looks like Christmas!


Then there’s the beautiful Nature’s Peace Stamp Set . Here’s what it looks like when you emboss it using VersaMark ink, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and the Heat Tool.


Another gorgeous product from the holiday catalog is the Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set. I used it to make a fun neighbor gift package. (Tip: cut the top of a Petite Café Gift Bag using the Large Scallop Edgelits Die.)


I used the same stamp set to create a tag that doubles as a Christmas tree ornament—and put it on one of our Takeout Boxes for a cute gift.


Here’s a fast and easy card made using the adorable Cheerful Christmas Stamp Set.


Last of all, check out this idea for a treat bag—again using that awesome Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set.
