Stampin' Up! Merry & Bright ~ Holly Jolly Christmas Card

Hi there!  Did you see my last blog post where I shared a card straight from the 2023 September-December Mini Catalog?  This card is a CASE (Copy & Selectively Edit) of that card, with the same Merry & Bright Stamp Set. 

There are endless possibilities with this card layout, which makes it one I will reuse over and over again with different stamps sets and color combinations.  

Watch my YouTube Video for this card HERE

During the month of December I am sending a FREE PDF Tutorial to my Newsletter Subscribers each Friday evening.  Each PDF Tutorial will correspond to the YouTube Video I release that day.

Stampin' Up! Merry & Bright ~ Card from the Catalog

Did you catch my YouTube Video last weekend?  In it, I shared how to create this fun Christmas Card straight out of the September - December Mini Catalog.  You can find it on p. 8.  I also shared that instead of doing Classes to Go this month, I will be sending the PDF Tutorials that correspond to my YouTube videos to my newsletter subscribers.  If you aren't already a subscriber, click here to get my newsletter list. 

The Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper used for the background of this card is no longer available.  That's okay though, because there are still many wonderful DSP packs to choose from and this card is very flexible.  Just pick something that coordinates with the colors you love, OR, keep your background a solid color. 

Visit my blog tomorrow for another version of this festive Card from the Catalog!

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Beary Cute ~ Merry & Bright Christmas Card


Yesterday I shared a card created with Beary Cute stamps and no bear!  So today's card HAD to include one of the bears!  This one is so simple to stamp, then punch with the coordinating bear punch!

The paper is the front and back of the same sheet from A Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper.  I love it when I can use both sides of one piece of paper so easily.  It makes for quick cards that I don't have to think too hard about!

I hope everything is merry & bright in your part of the world!

Stampin' Up! Beary Cute ~ Where are the bears?

How does it happen that I buy a stamp set because of the adorable polar bears and then end up making a card without the bears?  Turns out the entire set is just really great and bears are not actually required (at least not on ALL the cards! lol)

After stamping the tree and gifts, I fussy cut them with my trusty Stampin' Snips scissors. I cut close to the stamped outline, then used the matching Stampin' Write Marker to go around the edges so no white was showing.  The sentiment and small gift were attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
