Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines and For Unto Us CAS Christmas Cards

Good morning, all – and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  The week is flying by, isn’t it?  I had to look at my watch when I started this post last night to see what day it was.  I was shocked to realize it was already Tuesday.  Yikes!

I’ve been getting some queries about ideas for easy to make Christmas cards – that are suitable for making multiples!  I made one a couple weeks back using the Curvy Christmas stamp set – you can see it here.  But – it got me to thinking, so I decided to do a riff on that one – with one of my favorite stamp sets – the Peaceful Boughs set.  I added a sentiment for the inside from For Unto Us and went back to the gorgeous Gold Cards & Envelopes, just like the first card.  Take a look-see:

As you might imagine, the Stamparatus is a critical component to making multiples of this card (or any, really!).

The color scheme for these is from the Fab Friday color challenge!

I actually made about 45 of the card fronts in just over an hour.  It’ll take about the same to do all the insides – I ran out of Gold Cards & Envelopes long before I ran out of need-to-make-cards! LOL!

I started with a 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Very Vanilla that I placed in my Stamparatus.  I put the card stock into the Stamparatus – in the middle – so I could hang the Peaceful Boughs pine boughs off the edges.  I had both of the acrylic plates on the Stamparatus – and I added my stamps to both sides of one – and a single side of the other.  See?

I inked the pine boughs in Mint Macaron and stamped those.

Then, I inked the sentiment – from Peaceful Boughs – in Bumble Bee and stamped it.

I turned the “top” plate over and stamped the pine cones in Cinnamon Cider.

To do all 42, I stamped all of the pieces with the sentiment in Bumble Bee and then the pine boughs in Mint Macaron.  Then I turned the plate and stamped all the panels with the pine cones in Cinnamon Cider.  THAT is what made the process rock right along!

Stampapotamus….I LOOOOOOOOVE Yuuuuuuuuuuu!

I laid the entire card into the Stamparatus so that I could stamp the inside.

I did the boughs first in Mint Macaron.  Then the pine cone and sentiment were on the second acrylic panel – I inked the pine cone in Cinnamon Cider and the sentiment – from For Unto Us – in Bumble Bee ink.

I got all the insides done – including adding a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot – then popped all the card fronts on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Each of the card fronts also got a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot!

I didn’t do anything to the Gold Envelopes cuz they’re already gorgeous!

I got three done – and will finish the rest when my order comes in with more Gold Cards & Envelopes!

Et Voila!  Peaceful Boughs with the addition of a For Unto Us sentiment.   Clean.  Simple.  Elegant!

AND – they’re pretty much flat – I anticipate them mailing with a single stamp!  And so easy to get a bunch of done FAST with the help of the Stamparatus!  The Gold Cards & Envelopes do SO much of the “pretty” work for you – just go ahead and buy a bunch of them!

    Jeeze, now I need more notecards and another package of Very Vanilla! Oh. And this stamp set that I totally ignored. I am always delighted when that happens. Thx again for the gorgeous card, Mary!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes ma’am! This would be a great Christmas card for you to make – even easier than the Curvy Christmas one I did before! Thanks so much! 🙂

  4. Lin Hense

    Love this! I have the set but haven’t been able to use it….
    Total inspiration from seeing your card.

  5. What a fantastic design for quick multiples! The gold accents are so pretty with our challenge colors and I like the little enamel dots for just a “little something”. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

    • stampsnlingers

      Those little enamel dots are some of my fave embellishements! Thank you so much, Amanda! Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂

  6. I love love this card. You have made it look so easy and I’m sure it’s not. 🙂 This one will definitely be on my to do list. Thank you for sharing <3

    • stampsnlingers

      It actually is pretty easy, Donna – once you get your plates set up on the Stamparatus and do a couple – the rest go like hotcakes! Have fun! Thank you so much! 🙂

    I have finally mastered my stamparatus & used it to make my Christmas cards. Sure can make a bunch in a short time & each one is perfect stamping!! WOW!!
    This is going back to your garden final harvest… answered that you used potatoes from the grocery. Around here we purchase “seed potatoes” from the nursery or box stores that handle garden stuff……..that is what we use for our hills of spuds!! Just an observation on what I understand you saying??!!! Maybe that is the reason for the low volume of spuds & taste. Just a thought.

    • stampsnlingers

      I am thinking you’re right, Karen. I had the potatoes in the pantry – and they’d gone to sprouting eyes. So I thought to myself – self? What the heck! And I planted them – even knowing better! So – it was a failed experiment! Next year I’ll go back to seed taters from the nursery or farm store! 😉 SO glad that you and your Stampapotamus came to an understanding – isn’t it a marvellous tool?!? Thanks!

  8. pretty card! Love the pine boughs too. Great sentiment. I need to get with the program and get my cards done. making WAY too many sympathy cards.. I did your Dandy WIshes as a sympathy and it turned out well. Thanks.

    • stampsnlingers

      Glad to hear it, Julie. Not that you need sympathy cards 🙁 but that the one you did worked! Thanks so much! 🙂

    So very beautiful, Mary! PERFECT stamp set to use with our colors, and a gorgeous design! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
