Cup Of Christmas

This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp class.  It uses the stamp set called Cup Of Christmas that is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  It has a set of matching dies called Cup Of Cheer and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The fun thing about this set is it is reversible.  The cup with the polka dots and another one with stripes can be stamped on both sides so you don’t have to do mirror stamped with them.  Plus the dies cut out the cups both ways.  It is patent pending and is such an awesome idea.

To make this card I first stamped the polka dot cup in Call Me Clover and cut it out using the matching die.  Then I cut out a Cherry Cobbler cup and layered it with another piece of Whisper White cardstock I cut out using the dies.  They have the stripes or a poinsettia to put on a cup.  The candy canes are two pieces.  There is a solid one for the back (I used Whisper White) and the striped you put on top. I stamped the sentiment and the holly in Call Me Clover ink too. The ribbon is called Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Striped Ribbon and is also in the Holiday Catalog.

Christmas Layers

Christmas Layers is a set of dies that are in the Holiday Catalog.  They have a stamp set that is part of a Bundle called Itty Bitty Christmas (and you can save 10% if you purchase them in a Bundle) but I did not use the stamp set on this card.  I love this set of dies.  It cuts out the branch I used on this card as well as a snowflake background and a flower background.  They are even more beautiful in person.

To make this card I first decided I wanted to make a different kind of card so I randomly cut the front of the Whisper White card base at an angle.  Then I cut out the branch in Copper Foil and adhered it to the card front.  It fit the angle perfectly (totally by accident!).  This foil is absolutely gorgeous in person and it matches the Brightly Gleaming Special Designer Series Paper I used on the bottom of this card.  This paper is favorite paper in the Holiday Catalog because it has beautiful colors (Night Of Navy in this case) mixed with copper foiling.

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Cup Of Christmas in Versamark Ink and then embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool.  I decided it needed a little something more so I took a piece of Copper Foil paper and attached it to the Whisper White card base.  Then I put it in my Trimmer so it would be at the same angle as the card base.  It was much easier to do it this way then try to replicate the first angle I cut.

Cup Of Christmas

Cup Of Christmas is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Holiday Catalog.  This stamp set is so much fun because some of the stamps are reversible!   Here is a video showing you what this means:

Isn’t that fun?!?

To make this card I only used a little bit of stamping.  Most of it uses the matching dies called Cup Of Cheer.  You can save 10% by punching the stamps set and the dies together in a Bundle.

I cut out the mug out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and layered it with the white Poinsettia die I also had cut out using another die.  I cut out the candy cane from Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White cardstock and adhered them together.  I just love that candy cane!  I cut out the leaves along the bottom from Call Me Clover cardstock, as well as the bow and the bottom layer of the tag.  I stamped the word ‘Merry” using the Merry Christmas stamp and covering the word “Christmas” with Washi Tape, inking it in Call Me Clover ink, removing the Washi Tape and stamping it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  This is called masking.  You can do this with any stamp when you only want to use a portion of it.   I repeated that using Cherry Cobbler ink the second time.  Then I used another die from the Cup of Cheer die set to cut out the words and layering them on top of the Call Me Clover tag.

I used a piece of 6″ x 6″ Regals Designer Series Paper for the background.
