Welcome to my stop on the ESAD Holiday Catalogue 2018 Blog Hop, if you’re starting here or joining me from Rochelle’s blog, again welcome!!  Today’s blog hop we’re featuring products from the brand new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue.


For my stop I have created three cards all featuring the Merry Christmas To You Bundle from the All Is Bright Suite.


For my first card I went simple…


Starting off with an Old Olive card base, I die cut out the larger frame from the die set in the bottom right corner of the card front.  Then using the Big Shot Embossing Mats, I embossed the ‘Merry’ and ‘Christmas’ also from the die set.  I went over the embossing with Clear Wink of Stella.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To You Photopolymer Stamp Set in through the cut in Mossy Meadow.

Here is my second card…


This card starts off with a Mossy Meadow card base.  I then cut out seven of the larger frame in Old Olive Cardstock, adhering them down with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I cut off the excess and reused them where necessary.  I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  I die cut out two lots of ‘Christmas’, one in Whisper White and the other in Old Olive.  I adhered them together with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  Then over the top layer with Fine-Tip Glue.  Once dry I adhered it to the card front with some more Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

For my final card… I went with a Real Red card.


I started off with a Real Red card base, I embossed the card front with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Once embossed I went over the top with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, layering on top a piece Real Red Cardstock that I scrunched, adhering together with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I tied the piece of Whisper White Sheer Ribbon around to look like a present.  I secured the bow in place with a Mini Glue Dot.  Then adhered it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the frame stamp and the sentiment in Real Red ink, then die cut out with frame die, adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also die cut out two ‘Merry’, one in Whisper White and the other in Real Red, layering together and to the card with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

I hope you like my three cards all featuring the Merry Christmas To You Bundle, for the full list of supplies it’s right at the end of this post.  Next up is Rose, my wonderful Aunty and Upline!!

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

  1. Three gorgeous cards Lauren! Love the embossing of the thinlits words for a fun background layer and the copper embossing powder over the Tin Tile embossing makes for a gorgeous vintage look, especially over the Real Red colour. Thanks for sharing your fabulous ideas. Rochelle xo
