Christmas Collectibles in Pool Party and Basic Black

I used the new Christmas Collectibles stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card share today.  Don’t forget that you can purchase the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and the Christmas Ornament Punch in a bundle and save 15% (133282 wood, 133283 clear).  You can see the bundle on page 35 of the Holiday Catalog.

My card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches #99 and the Dynamic Duos #66.

Christmas Collectibles

I started by adhering a panel of Winter Frost Specialty DSP to a Basic Black card base with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in StazOn Jet Black on a Pool Party panel, punched it out with the Word Window Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a Modern Label Punch from Basic Black card stock.  Then I adhered the sentiment to the back of a strip of Basic Black card stock with tape, then adhered the Basic Black strip and the sentiment to the card front with SNAIL.

Next, I embossed a panel of Pool Party card stock with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and I adhered it to a panel of the Silver Foil Sheets then to the Basic Black strip with SNAIL.  I stamped the three ornament images from the Christmas Collectibles stamp set in VersaMark ink on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled them with Pool Party, Black and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I punched them out with the Christmas Ornament Punch and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I tied two bows from Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and one bow from Silver 1/8″ Ribbon and I adhered them to the ornament punches with Glue Dots.

More Merry Messages

To finish the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set in StazOn Jet Black Ink on a Whisper White panel, then adhered a strip of Basic Black and Winter Frost Speciality DSP.

  1. This is sooooo pretty, Amy. I love the color scheme! The way you added the sentiment is great, too, and even the interior is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
