Team Stamp It Christmas in July Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this months Christmas in July blog hop. I am featuring the Christmas Scottie bundle with a simple yet different cut.

The card base is 11-1/2”x 4-1/4” scored at 5-1/2”. Then cut the top 2-1/8” x 5-1/2” and save for later add-on project. You can now run the bottom 2-1/8” x 5-1/2” through the embossing folder of your choice. For this card I used the Gingham design.

The save for later cut piece now becomes a gift tag.

Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the team Stamp It Christmas blog hop.


WOW!! Where has this year gone? Here we are in November already and as I bought my turkey last night, the month is almost over.

“For the young the days go fast and the years go slow; for the old the days go slow and the years go fast.”

I wanted to showcase a bit of non traditional yet festive. I think the Whimsy and Wonder Suite and Bright Baubles Bundles does just that.

DETAILS: I cut my card bases to be 4.25” x 5.50” in basic white. I then cut a basic white layer into be 1/4” smaller. Die cut the bauble FIRST. By cutting the babble/ornament first and then embossing allows the dimension of the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder to be retained. 

I cut my first strip with the holly and last strip with the snowflakes in 3/4” strips to ensure you were able to see the detail of the paper. The glitter strips were cut in 1/4” strips to not take away from the overall card but provide additional medium and pop. I know the Blushing Bride glitter is retired but I tend to hoard my paper and it’s a great match for the Whimsy and Wonder suite. The remaining  DSP cut into 1/2” strips.

I then heat embossed my greeting in Silver as my finishing touch. I just love how the card glimmers in the light.

Welcome to my Stamp It Christmas in July post. 

I’m excited to give you a small introduction to the Whimsy and Wonder Suite that will be available in the July – December Mini Catalog releasing on August 3, 2021. Note: I will update the product links when the catalog goes live.

I have to say, I had mixed feelings about this suite at first. I liked the whimsy trees, I liked some of the color combinations but I wasn’t sure of the combination together. Now I can’t wait to create more with it. The hardest part will be using the DSP. (I’m working on that problem in general Ha-Ha!)

Look at this Holly paper!!

  • Berries in Blushing Bride
  • Leaves in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron
  • Hint a Holographic trim

How do you get over cutting it, putting adhesive on it and covering it up to display the other side. I could use my paper with a little less stress if they banned double sided DSP. 

Here’s a sneak peek at the trees. Originally, I thought I was going to die cut one or more trees to use. So I arranged on my scrap to do all at once. Might see a few more in the background. 😉

As I looked at the other stamps, 🐿 squirrel moment 🐿 I instantly envisioned the word Joy for my tree topper. As my card has had a moment to ‘rest’, I think it needs more around my tree. It might be snow or gems.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.

Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop. Today I’m keeping it #SimpleStamping with the Snowman Season set. Though not used, there is the Snowman Builder Punch.

These cards were created as the growing popular slimline cards. The bases in Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight measure 8” x 9”, scoring the 8” side at 4”. This allows for a finished card of 4”x9” to fit in a standard #10 envelope. The white stamped layer was cut at 7 1/2” x 8”. 

On each card I enhanced with a little water coloring using the new Water Painters

The Santa hats were stamped using A Merry Hello Host set available in the August – December 2020 catalog for $10.00 with qualifying purchase.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to comment leaving #stampitcontest to win this month’s Simply Citrus Card Kit.

Congratulations to last months winner:
