How to make a Misty Moonlight Christmas Card

Hello and welcome to the first edition of my September Colour Challenge. This month’s randomly chosen colour is Misty Moonlight. Week 1 is monochrome and I decided on the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs bundle to create this Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Let’s Make This Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next trim a layer of 2020-2022 In Colour Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 9.5 x 13.9 cm. For the final layer, trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 6.5 x 10.9 cm and emboss using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Before adhering this layer to the card front, wrap around a length of Misty Moonlight ribbon and secure at the back. Tie a shorter length around this and trim the ends.

Stamp the sentiment and small images in Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I have used one of the sentiments from the Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set. Cut out each of these elements with the coordinating dies. Adhere the die-cut elements to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my Misty Moonlight Christmas Card?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make this Misty Moonlight Christmas card. Misty Moonlight is still my favourite of the 2020-2022 In Colours and I think it looks great paired with Whisper White on these Christmas Cards.

Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature Frame Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Soft Suede cardstock. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 13.9 x 9.5 cm.

Stamp the large tree in Soft Suede ink into the centre of the Whisper White layer. Cut this out using the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots Die Set.

Use the (approx.) 7.6 x 11 cm Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a frame from the remaining piece of Whisper White cardstock. You should now have three pieces – the tree, the stitched frame (with the tree cut out of it) and the outer frame (with the rectangle cut out of it).

Emboss the outer frame using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the stitched frame to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the tree die cut and carefully place it into the aperture in the raised frame.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede ink and cut out using the (approx.) 2.2 x 7.3 cm Stitched Rectangle Die. Cut a small length of Copper Metallic Ribbon (from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack) and adhere at the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. Cut another small length of the ribbon, thread it through one of the Acorn Trinkets and tie to the first piece of ribbon. Adhere the sentiment piece to the raised frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think this card is a fabulous combination of clean and simple with a few great techniques thrown in. The Whisper White and Soft Suede colour scheme works so well with the copper embellishments.

SU Rooted in Nature Card

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Here is my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Pretty Peacock cardstock. Next I have used a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock which has been embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I have stamped the large leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Stamp Set in Crumb Cake, Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock inks. These are cut out and embossed using the coordinating dies from the Nature’s Roots Dies. These are attached to the embossed cardstock layer using a Metallic Brad.

The triple leaf stamp is stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Crumb Cake ink and I have used ‘multi-generation’ stamping to achieve different tones. This is cut out using the large label from the Stitched Labels Dies. I have adhered one of the Leaves Trinkets to the label using a Mini Glue Dot.

The small leaf stamp is stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Terracotta Tile ink, again using multiple generations. This is cut out using the long label from the Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered to the first label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment and the foliage image are stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the circular label from the Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered to the second label using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I think the different layers and textures give this card a really luxurious feel – I hope you like it! If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Inlaid Pine Tree Card

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop full of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or you may have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Here is the project that I have made for our hop today…

I hadn’t heard of ‘inlaid embossing’ until a few months ago but it has quickly become one of my favourite techniques. Here I have used it to combine the Pine Tree Punch and Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I have then cut a layer from Whisper White cardstock and adhered one of the punched Pine Trees, also cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. This layer is then embossed using the Pinewood Planks folder which embosses both the background and the Pine Tree! I think this looks fabulous and people always seem to be impressed as they can’t quite work out how you have achieved it.

The sentiment piece is created by heat embossing the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment, from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies and layered onto a larger rectangle cut from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP. I adhered the sentiment piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is accomplished with the addition of a few gold Metallic Pearls around the tree.
