Stampin’ Up Merriest Moments Joy

Hello Everyone – I love the soft colors used to create the Stampin’ Up Merriest Moments Joy card.

Do you use the catalog for inspiration? I love finding cards in there to put my twist on it. The Facebook Group CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge had a fun challenge this week. We were to CASE a non-Christmas card and give it a Christmas twist.

I pulled out my June – December catalog and sat down and looked at the non-Christmas sections. I found the perfect card on page 47.

Once I saw this card I knew I wanted to use my favorite colors pink and green. I just ordered a stamp set that is carrying over and had not used it yet. Here is what my card looks like using the Merriest Moment bundle.

Isn't this a beautiful pink and green Christmas card?  The Stampin' Up Merriest Moments Joy creation has lots of texture and interest.  Check out the details for all the products used.

When I looked at the card in the catalog I saw there was a panel of pattern paper on the front. I found a simple pattern in the Whimsy & Wonder collection. Here are the steps to creating this card.


Measurements

Card Base:  White 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
background layer:  Mint Macaron 4″ x 5 1/4″
Whimsy & Wonder pattern paper: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
White: scraps for stamping and die cutting


Let’s make it!

  • use the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the pattern paper
  • create a stencil using the Layering Circles dies, stamp the sprinkle using Mint Macaron ink inside the circle
  • sponge Mint Macaron inside the circle template
  • emboss the background layer using the Merriest Frames hybrid embossing folder
  • attach embossed layer to card base using Tear & Tape
  • add the pattern paper to card front using Tear & Tape
  • stamp all the following with a second generation each time – small poinsettia 2 times using Blushing Bride, small leaf 2 times using Mint Macaron, and the sentiment using Blushing Bride
  • use the dies to cut out the flowers and leaves
  • use the smallest flower and Shimmery White card stock to cut out the flower
  • use your snips to cut out around the sentiment
  • layer the flowers using dimensionals
  • add the smallest flower to the center with a glue dot
  • add leaves with glue dots
  • attach flower using a dimensional to the upper section of the circle
  • add a Champagne rhinestone to the center of the flower
  • attach sentiment using dimensionals under the right part of the flower
  • cut the Blushing Bride frayed grosgrain ribbon in half, tie a small bow
  • add the bow to the lower right hand portion of the pattern paper with a glue dot

Don’t forget to stamp the flower and leaf on the inside of the card and on the envelope.

I have loved using poinsettias in my Christmas card making this season. Check out this pink poinsettia with some green pattern paper. Look at this idea that uses a vellum poinsettia with a blended background.
