Joy of Christmas for New at SU

 2023 hop banner

Welcome to our October NEW AT SU! Blog Hop! We love to share creative card ideas from Stampin' Up! with you. Today we have projects featuring a sketch and using the suites in the Sept/Dec Mini Catalogue. The suite I chose to highlight is the Joy of Christmas Suite, which seemed perfectly suited to the sketch, shown just below:

See what I mean:

I used a palette of Real Red, Copper Clay, Old Olive and Garden Green with accents of metallic Copper. The designer paper is from the Joy of Christmas DSP and the embellishments are also from the same suite. The ribbon is from the All About Autumn Suite.

  • On the Real Red card base, I added a background of 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Joy of Christmas DSP.
  • On the next layer, which is a Copper Clay coloured sheet music DSP from the same collection, cut to 4 3/4" x 3 1/2", I added some splatter, embossed with Copper embossing powder, using the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I adhered this piece to the card front.
  • I die cut the long label using the Christmas Classics die from Old Olive cardstock and the inner label from Basic White cardstock.
  • I die cut extra foliage from Old Olive and Garden Green cardstock using dies from the Christmas Classics die set.
  • I added Copper Ribbon down the center of the white label before adhering it to the Old Olive leafy label; the ribbon is from the Copper & Natural Ribbon Combo pack. 
  • I stamped the Noel sentiment in Versamark ink on Basic White cardstock and embossed it in Copper embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Joy of Noel stamp set. I die cut it with the coordinating Joy of Noel dies.
  • I glued the Noel letters along the white label over the ribbon, then added the extra foliage to the back of the Old Olive label. I added the label to the card front using dimensionals.
  • I added the red gems to the berries on the foliage of the label using liquid glue.
