Stampin’ Up! Nothing Sweeter Birthday and Christmas Cards

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nothing Sweeter stamp set bundle to create two cards to share with you today.  They are the same basic design, just for a different occasion.  This stamp set is fantastic!

My card designs were inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #290.

I started by embossing the bottom of Thick Whisper White card bases with the zigzag die from the Sweetly Stitched Framelits Dies.  I ran each card front through 3 times, moving the die up as I went.

For the birthday card, I stamped the images from the Nothing Sweeter photopolymer stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green inks on panels of Whisper White card stock.  I cut them out with the coordinating Sweetly Stitched Framelits Die and adhered the orange and green presents with SNAIL and the blue present with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

The tag was stamped in Calypso Coral ink and cut with the Christmas Tag Thinlits die.  I pulled a strand of Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine through the tag and then adhered it with Glue Dots to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday photopolymer stamp set in Calypso Coral ink and the present image from the Nothing Sweeter stamp set in Pool Party and Coastal Cabana inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

For the Christmas card, I stamped the tree images from the Nothing Sweeter stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Tranquil Tide inks and cut them out with the Sweetly Stitched Framelits Die.  I adhered two trees with SNAIL and the third with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing Sweeter stamp set in Real Red ink and cut it out with the Christmas Tag Thinlits Die.  I tied a bow with Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon through the tag and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink and the tree from the Nothing Sweeter stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Tranquil Tide inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.
