Stampin’ Up! Christmas Seasonal Lantern on Plaid!

It’s Monday, y’all.  And that’s all I’m going to say about it! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate it!  If you weren’t able to join, but would like to watch the tutorial, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

This is one that uses what’s become my favorite new Designer Papers – the beautiful plaids in the Christmas Around the World DSP.  And it all works together with the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I matted my pretty Christmas Around the World plaid on Basic Black for the card front.  Then I cut the lantern shape with the die from the Lantern Builder Framelits and the detailed lantern from Gold Glimmer Paper.

The candle is stamped on a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in with Real Red.  These are both stamps in Seasonal Lantern, as is the “glow” image that I added in Daffodil Delight.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flame.

I adhered a gold Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with scotch tape.  I added the lantern with more Liquid Glue.

Check out the video to see how to make the matted label with Basic Black and Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern in Versamark on Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and adhered it over the matted label.

I cut some pine boughs in Garden Green with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The pine cones, from Seasonal Lantern, are stamped in Early Espresso and Soft Suede and cut with their die in the Lantern Builder Framelits.  Once all the embellishments were on, I popped the label and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I topped it all off with a bow tied from a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and two lengths of Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I matted a strip of the Christmas Around the World plaid DSP on Basic Black card stock, then added another length of the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a trio of Seasonal Lantern candles in Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight on the front…

…and more of the pretty Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.  Plus some more candles!

Et Voila!  Gotta love this plaid paper – and the versatility of the Seasonal Lantern bundle – Christmas – Fall – Hannukah!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss the fact that the Christmas Around the World DSP is included in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP sale going on now thru the end of the month!  And you’re going to want to take advantage of my Ordering Special and the World Card Making Day celebration, too!  Lots of opportunities to stock up and save!!

  1. What a beautiful card Mary! I enjoyed your video too, glad that I could catch part of it live! 🙂

  2. I don’t know if I can handle 7 weeks of no FFF’s…but as long as you keep presenting your glorious cards and fun Sunday nights, I’ll survive…don’t tell Finn though 😉 Oh, and btw, I like the vanilla the better of the two!

    • Although difficult, it’s still easier to bring card making supplies than it is to bring a 65lb Aussie! So – cards will have to do! And – I think I might like the vanilla version better myself! Thanks much, Karen! 🙂
