Stampin’ Up! A Festive Merry Christmas To All!

Good morning!  OnStage 2018 is in the History books!

Wow – what an event – which I’m sure you could tell from the pictures this weekend, right?  We had such a fun time with so many of our team there! 🙂

Amy and I will be on our way home soon.  Hard to believe it’s already over.  Just for your planning – please make note of the fact that I will NOT be doing a video tonight!  Next week!!

I’ve got a pretty Christmas card for you today using some plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP (one of my favorites!!) and the large and lovely snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits.  I borrowed some sentiments from the Merry Christmas To All bundle, too.  Take a sneak peek!

I chose my color scheme from the As You See It Challenge!  And – this was a speed challenge…fortunately, I had cut the snowflake already and it was in my stash – so this one took me just under 10 minutes to do the card! 🙂


I started with one of my favorite papers from Festive Farmhouse and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Next up is a shimmery snowflake from Snowfall Thinlits, cut from some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die from another Festive Farmhouse design and adhered it – again with Liquid Glue.

Using a die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits, I cut the large sentiment from a piece of Basic Black card stock and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the label border image from the Merry Christmas To All set in Cherry Cobbler ink.  In the center, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped a single word sentiment.  Then I fussy cut the label and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish everything off – I added a few frosted droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add the large sentiment from Merry Christmas To All in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Very Vanilla panel.  Around it, I added a couple of flourishes in Cherry Cobbler.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another couple Cherry Cobbler flourishes on the front…

…and I added some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love me some plaid, folks – and the Festive Farmhouse DSP is just perfect.  And Merry Christmas To All is such a versatile set – you can make all sorts of holiday greetings with the stamps and bundled Merry Christmas Thinlits!  Hope you like!

  1. Love this Mary! Great colors, love your plaid background. 🙂

  2. What’s NOT to love about this card? Nothing. Great use of the DSP. Can’t get too much plaid.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Julie – agree! No such thing as too much plaid! 🙂

  3. janclothier

    Lovely design, Mary, and a great combination of some fabulous products! It’s a really appealing, stylish Christmas card. I went to On Stage Auckland and it was fantastic – can’t wait for the goodies from there to arrive! Thank you for playing along with us at As You See It. As this challenge was also a speed challenge, could you add in your time?

    • stampsnlingers

      Glad you had fun at OnStage! It always goes by so fast, doesn’t it?!? 🙂 I just added the time into my blog post (just under 10 min) – thanks so much! 🙂

  4. Kate

    Beautiful Christmas plaid!

  5. Beautiful card Mary! I love that DSP too. It was so nice meeting you at OnStage! I hope you and Amy have safe travels. I got home to Texas very late last night to what feels like winter weather (low 40’s). Harsh reality check compared to Orlando weather! Hope your weather is warmer.

    • stampsnlingers

      Enjoyed meeting you, too! We had a safe trip home today – to chilly weather! It was surprising – but nice! It was HOT for us down there! What a wonderful event! 🙂

  6. Beautiful Christmas card, Mary…that plaid is so warm and cozy, and you can’t go wrong with that set of sentiments either! Thanks for playing with our challenge this week at As You See It! I hope you come back soon!
