For my Card today I used the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, the Curvy Dies and the Classic Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that are part of the Quite Curvy Release. The Curvy Christmas Stamp Set will allow you to create one-of-a-kind Christmas crafts!  I love the how the sentiments and the some of the imagery has the curves to match the Curvy Dies.  Plus there are so many other images in inside that will allow you to create anything that you would like.  The curviness of these images will make for a fun little holiday element on any project.

I used the the Dainty Diamond 3D Embossing Folder as an accent on my card today; it was the perfect texture to add to the card without taking away from the curvy flow going on.  I embossed a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce with the Dainty Diamond 3D Folder and added it to the card base with just a little Stampin' Seal Adhesive.

Next I used my Stamparatus to stamp both the sentiment and the star border from the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set onto a 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink and the Stars in Crushed Curry Ink.  I picked my colors not only from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper but I through in the Crushed Curry because it's a great compliment to the festive colors going on with my card today.

After stamping the sentiment and star border I cut a 2" x 5 1/4" strip of the Classic Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and ran it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the stitched Curvy Die from the Curvy Die Set.  I attached this layer to the Whisper White layer with some Stampin' Seal and popped the entire panel up on my card with a lot of Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off my card I added a few of the Star Designer Elements to the star border going along the side of the Whisper White layer.  This added a little more texture to the card and a nice metallic element.

Merry Moose Stampin' Up! - Merry Christmoose Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made during my Facebook Live last night.  My card features the Merry Moose Bundle from Stampin' Up!.  This was one of the hardest to get bundes last year during the Holiday Season. The Moose Punch Sold out so fast and kept selling out that it could not be keep in stock.  And looking at my card you can see why.  

This stamp Set and punch bundle is just so stinking cute!  I loved this set so much and didn't get a chance last year to showcase it because it kept selling out.  I am so excited that Stampin' Up! brought it back this year as a Returning Favorite in the August - December Mini Catalog.  I am also featuring this set in my Online monthly card club for October.  I will link to my club page here so you can find out all the details and to sign up.  Here's a look at the card I made last night during my Weekly Facebook Live.

I started out my card by cutting some Pear Pizzazz Cardstock down to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4" to make my card base.  Most card bases are always a half a sheet of cardstock just cut in half either on the long side or the shorter side.  Next I added a piece of Real Red Cardstock cut at 3 3/4" x 5".

To my Real Red mat layer I added a piece of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (which by the way is on sale during the month of October as part of the Designer Series Paper Sale.)  The Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper was cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  You can click here to take advantage of the Designer Series Paper Sale.

Next I took some scraps of Whisper White and Mossy Meadow Cardstocks to do the rest of the card.  I stamped the moose outline in Soft Suede Ink and then stamped the fill image off once and added it to the outline.  Then I used the matching Moose Punch to punch out my Moose.  I used another Scrap of Whisper White and my Mossy Meadow Scrap to create the labels.  The labels came from the Halloween Magic Dies, so you can totally use them for other projects other than Halloween; don't get caught up on the title and think you only have to use them for Halloween, they are perfect on other projects as well.  I ran the small and large label dies through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  I then stamped the large Pine Tree in Pear Pizzazz Ink onto the Whisper White Label.  I stamped it once full strength and then two more times reinking it and stamping off on my scratch paper to create a lighter shade and to make them look as if they are further away.

Next I added the Mossy Meadow label die cut to the front of my card with Stampin' Seal.  Before adding the Whisper White label I stamped my sentiment at the bottom in Real Red Ink and added a couple Red Basic Rhinestones.  I popped the label up onto the Mossy Meadow one with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a Stampin' Dimensional behind the moose's butt and add some Stampin' Seal to his head.  I placed him on the card front where his cute little butt was on the card base and the head was on the Whisper White label.  This adds even dimension to the card front.
