Stampin’ Up! Joyful Nativity and Holly Berry Happiness Quick Holiday Cards

I finished up the last of my Christmas cards earlier this week using the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Nativity stamp set and I thought that I’d show those to you today.

Since I finished up the Christmas cards, I thought that I’d stamp a few quick Christmas thank you cards so that I could get a head start on those too!  I stamped the thank you cards with the Holly Berry Happiness and Watercolor Wishes stamp sets.


I think this card works for the Stamp Ink Paper #78 Winter Holiday Challenge.


My card also works for the CAS-ual Fridays CFC163 Challenge.


I started by stamping the “JOY” sentiment from the Joyful Nativity photopolymer stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the angel image from the Joyful Nativity stamp set in VersaMark ink inside the “O”, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.


I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Dapper Denim card stock and then to a Crumb Cake Note Card with SNAIL.


I stamped the sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking photopolymer stamp set in Night of Navy ink inside the note cards.  I was able to get a big stack of these done speedy quick to finish up my holiday card making…Yippee!!

Since I got done with my Christmas cards early, I started right up on the holiday thank you notes!


I embossed the front of a Whisper White note card with the Holly Embossing Folder.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes photopolymer stamp set in Emerald Envy ink on a Whisper White card stock panel.  I stamped the holly leaf holly berry outline images from the Holly Berry Happiness photopolymer stamp set in Real Red and Emerald Envy inks.


I inked the solid leaf and berry images from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set in Emerald Envy and Real Red inks, stamped them on scrap paper and then stamped them over the outline images.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Emerald Envy card stock and then to the card front with SNAIL.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.

I got a stack of thank you notes all stamped and ready to be written out speedy quick too!
