Toile Christmas for GDP219

I don’t know about you folks, but I am so in love with the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  And I am thrilled that it is on the new plan of returning certain items next Holiday Catalog.  I have used so much of this paper.  So to finish off my pack, I made a totally Toile Christmas card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Toile Tidings, Jackie Beers, Perfectly Plaid

 

This card fit perfectly for the O’ Christmas Tree theme from Global Design Project #219.  Here is their banner:

 

I did pair the Toile Tidings with the Perfectly Plaid Bundle.  The Merry Christmas is from the stamp set and the Pine Tree Punch is a must have.

The card is based on Real Red Card stock with a layer of Very Vanilla.  Then two different pieces of the Toile Tidings DSP are layered for the two parts of the card.  I wrapped the intersection of the two with the Real Red Ribbon.  A Side Note:  I did a party with this same card and was thrilled that a young fellow of about 8 yoa was in the class.  He made the cards perfectly and decided he liked the green version of this one.  So he turned all of his pieces over to the opposite sides that I have here.  I should have taken a picture of his card.  It was perfect!

The sentiment is punched using the Timeless Label Punch and then layered onto the Everyday Label punch.  The Christmas Tree is punched from yet another piece of the Toile Tidings DSP.  It is punched using the Pine Tree Punch and raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  There is one of the Star Designer Elements to top the tree.

Thank you for coming back today.  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop card and this one.

Pals December Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for our Retirement Fun Fold Party  – showcasing our favorite products from the Holiday Catalog that will be leaving us forever. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

 I used the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set for my card.  I love coloring and he is perfect for that.  I have made a gift card card holder for this project.  I love the fold that makes the gift card, as it can be done in several different directions.  It is a go to for me all year round.

 

 

The modified version I made is still super simple to do.  Here is another view of the inside.

 

 

Instead of it being the normal sideways, I added a piece to the back and folded it over to create a regular layered card look from the front view.

Gift cards are so important for me this time of year that I wanted to make one a little different.

Here is how I added the back piece.

 

 

To finish off the coloring, I added the Shimmery Crystal Effects to Santa’s fur.  It gives just a touch of shimmer and some shine.

Measurements:

  • 4 1/4 X 9 3/4 scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
  • navy 3 3/4 X 5
  • DSP 3 1/4 X 4 1/8
  • Vanilla 3 X 3 7/8
  • Extra piece of Cherry is 4 1/4 X 3 1/4 scored at 1/2 on the 3 1/4 side
  • Strip of gift card is DSP 4 x 1 1/4 and vanilla 3 3/4 X 1

 

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you will leave a comment with your thoughts on today’s twist to a regular gift card holder.

Merry Elfie

Besides the great FREE SHIPPING Sale for tomorrow, it is also the Pals Blog Hop.  We will be focusing on the Holiday Catalog.  So stop in and get some ideas for the great products that are going away.  I have the End Of Year Clearance link at the bottom, or you can just press the Shop Now button at the top and go directly to my online store.  You can choose the different sales, products, etc from there.

For today’s card I am focusing on one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog.  It seemed the perfect choice for today’s post.  This cute Elf is on the “going away list”.  I think he is adorable and have enjoyed making several projects with him.  He is on all of my Christmas Tags for my gifts.

 

 

I adore this little elf.  He is taking a short break from Christmas Toy making!  The layout of this card is similar to the Thinking of You from yesterday.  This time I did use the Scoring Blade on the new Paper Trimmer.  It works wonderfully.  I only scored at the 1/2″ line all around.  And I used the raised side instead of the indented side.  This gives a very different look I believe.

I used a variety of the Stampin’ Blends for the elf and sign.  I went with Bright colors on this little guy.  And I finished it off with a Bright Granny Apple Green Ink for the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please check back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop.

Thinking of You

Stampin’ Up! likes to promote the #simplestamping, or stamping for beginners.  I love the look that simple stamping gives.  It is not “PLAIN”.  The simple stamping is more of limited product use, like a new stamper would have in their craft space.

Today’s card is a #simplestamping, but I do not think it is plain at all.  I hope you will give this one a CASE and see what you come up with.

 

#simplestamping, Dandelion Wishes, Jackie Beers, Simply Scored, Stampin' Up!

 

I love this card and how elegant it looks.  With a rhinestone in the center of the dandelion, it would be perfect.  But I wanted to stay with the definition of the simple stamping, which is Stamp, Paper, and Ink.

I used my Simply Scored to do the scoring around the centerpiece.  You can use the new Paper Trimmer and get the same results.  The score blade on the new trimmer is a wheel instead of a blade as the old trimmer had.  It scores much deeper and would be a great double use of the trimmer.  I used the Simply Scored before I thought of the new trimmer.  I did try with the trimmer and it worked perfectly.

The only thing the centerpiece has that is not just stamped and layered is that it is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Little Tip:  I always place one in the center of a piece like this to keep the center from sagging. You don’t even have to remove the backing to stick the center one, just use it as a dimension.

Thank you for stopping by today!!
