Christmas Season

Stampin Up Christmas Season

I know it is only September but Christmas is not that far away.  You need to start thinking about your Christmas cards.  I have yet to design the card I will send this year but one of my favorite holiday stamp sets is called Christmas Season.   This stamp set has many two-step stamps included with it.  A two-step stamp is when two or more stamps are used to make one image.   For example, the pinecones are made using one stamp for the outside of the pinecones and one for the inside.  This stamp set has coordinating dies called Seasonal Labels (although I did not use them on this card).  The dies cut out many of the shapes in the stamp set and also include some very nice dies to make labels with.

To make this card, I first stamped the pinecones using Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink in the center of a 3.5″ x 4.75″ piece of Basic White card stock.  Then I stamped the leaves in Evening Evergreen ink and the pine needles in Soft Succulent ink.  Next, I stamped the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Spruced Up.  I stamped the word “Merry” in Cherry Cobbler ink and the word “Christmas” in Evening Evergreen ink onto a .5″ x 4.75″ piece of Basic White cardstock.  I backed both of these onto Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The Designer Series Paper I used is called Tiding Of Christmas (retired).

Take this post as a reminder to start thinking about your Christmas cards.  You will need the time to decide what products to use, order them, design them and finally, make them.
