A Banner Christmas Plus New Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!

I used the A Banner Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  My design was inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch #52 and the colors were inspired by the Dynamic Duos #77.  I thought the colors would make a great holiday card!

A Banner Christmas

I started by embossing a panel of Bermuda Bay Core’dinations Card Stock from the Brights Core’dinations Card Stock pack with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.  The embossed snowflakes were sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding Block, then the embossed panel was adhered to a Whisper White panel, then to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The larger banner was cut from I Am Me DSP and layered over Real Red card stock.  A strip of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon was added before it was adhered to the card front.  The sentiment from the A Banner Christmas stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink, cut out with Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To add a little sparkle, I put a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the snowflake panel.

More Merry Messages

The sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) was stamped in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel and a strip of Real Red card stock and I Am Me DSP were added to complete the inside of the card.

A Banner Christmas Stepped Up

I thought that I’d share another card that I made with the A Banner Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This one is not quite a clean and simple as the card that I posted on Friday (if you didn’t see that one, click here to check it out) but it’s got a lot more sparkle.  :)

My card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches 100.

A Banner Christmas

I started by adhering a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock to a panel of the Season of Style DSP.  Then I adhered two strips of the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape and wrapped the ends around the edge of the DSP panel.  I adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a smaller panel of the Season of Style DSP to a Cherry Cobbler panel, then to the card front with SNAIL.

A Banner Christmas 1

Next, I stamped the border image from the A Banner Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ink off once on scrap paper before stamping it on my card stock and I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.  Then I stamped the sentiment and banner in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I adhered the stamped panel to a Cherry Cobbler panel, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I punched a Christmas Ornament Punch and a star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack from Champaign Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the ornament with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the star with a Glue Dot.

A Banner Christmas 2

To finish the card front, I gold embossed three of the Candy Dots (I picked three from the Neutrals, but you can use any color).  To do this, I used my tweezer, stuck the Candy Dot to it, dabbed it on my VersaMark ink pad, then dabbed the Candy Dot in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  It did make the adhesive on the back get a little soft and they weren’t as sticky as they were before I embossed them, so I simply rolled up Glue Dots and adhered the Candy Dots with those.

More Merry Messages

I finished the inside of the card by stamped the sentiment from the More Merry Messages in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel, then I adhered a strip of the Season of Style DSP to it.

A Banner Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Card

My upline Sandi MacIver and I have both created easily reproducible cards using the A Banner Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to share with you today.  We wanted to show you some cute cards that you could quickly recreate and that could be mailed with a single stamp.  And we’re both providing you the costs to create a stack of cards!

A Banner Christmas

I started by adhering a panel from the Season of Style DSP Stack to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL.  Then I adhered the layered panel to a Cherry Cobbler panel, then to the Crumb Cake card base with SNAIL.

A Banner Christmas 1

I stamped the “Christmas” and JOY sentiments from the A Banner Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel, then cut out the Christmas sentiment with an Ovals Collection Framelits die.  I cut out the JOY sentiment banners with my Paper Snips (since they are straight lines they were very quick to cut) and adhered them to the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I ran four strips of Season of Style Designer Washi Tape across a Whisper White panel and I cut the panel with an Ovals Collection Framelits die.  I adhered the two ovals together, then to the card front with SNAIL and I added three rhinestones to the lower right corner for the finishing touch.

Petite Pairs

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Whisper White panel, then adhering a leftover strip of the DSP across the bottom.

Here is the cost breakdown for creating 48 cards (this is assuming that you already have the stamp set, Oval Framelits and SNAIL adhesive):

  • 1 Pack Crumb Cake Card Stock (120953) $6.95
  • 12 Sheets Cherry Cobbler Card Stock (119685) $3.48
  • 18 Sheets Whisper White Card Stock (100730) $3.83
  • 1 Pack Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stacks (132181) $6.95
  • 1 Pack Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246) $4.95
  • 1 Pack Season of Style Designer Washi Tape (132155) $4.95
  • 1 Pack Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) $3.95

Total $35.06 or $0.73 per card

You can use the different sizes of Rhinestones, different designs in the Season of Style DSP Stack and different designs of the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape to change up your cards and maximize your supplies.  You can make 48 additional cards by purchasing another pack of Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stacks (132181) $6.95, 1 Pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246) $4.95 and 1 Pack of Crumb Cake Card Stock (120953) $6.95 for a total of $18.85 or $0.39 per card for the second batch.
