Until a couple of years ago, I was one who always used traditional colors for Christmas.  That changed with a ribbon I found that had Red and ,in Stampin’ Up! colors, Granny Apple Green.  I was immediately drawn to it, and that ribbon changed my opinion of Christmas Colors.

Based on my new found love of “different” colors, the Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper was right up my alley.  Today’s card is there as well.


Stampin' Up!, Bright Baubles, Whimsey & Wonder, Polka Dot, Jackie Beers



The stamp should be the star of the show, and it is, but the paper is just so very pretty!  This piece from the Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper is amazing!  In trying to decide colors, I placed it next to Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Misty Moonlight.  They all were awesome and each gave a little bit different look.  I ended choosing the Polished Pink for the brightness.

Since this card was for my Stamp Club to make, I needed to stretch the DSP.  To do that I embossed a piece of Soft Succulent with the Dots Embossing Folder.


The stamp set is the Bright Baubles and is a Bundle.  I love the possibilities with this Bundle.  My plan is to make tags for my Christmas gifts this year using the different ornaments and inserts.  The one I chose for this card is pretty simple.  It was stamped using Polished Pink Ink and colored with Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.  The finishing touches are a Polished Pink Jewel from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels, and a glittery ribbon.


  • The Polished Pink card base is 4 1/4 X 11 scored and folded at 5 1/2
  • The DSP is cut to 5 1/4 X 2 3/8
  • The Soft Succulent is cut to 5 1/4 X 1 5/8 (The piece is actually 5 1/4 X 3 1/4 and embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder and then it is cut at 1 5/8. So you get two pieces from one use of the folder)
  • A Basic White piece is cut 5 1/4 X 4 and used to easily layer the DSP and Embossed pieces. They totally cover the White.
  • A 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 piece of Basic White was used to stamp the ornament and then die cut.
