Today I am sharing with you my Christmas in July card #5. I’ve been sharing, so if you missed it-click on my header and you can find the others.
Today’s card uses the Greatest Stamp set, Lovely as a Tree by Stampin’ Up! This stamp has been around for a long time, but it is very beloved! I also used the Hardwood stamp set to get the wood look and some Designer Series Paper. Check out my pictures below for the supplies and click on any picture to be taken to my Online Store.
Here is the card:
Here is the inside:
This is another easy, but fun card!
Come back for #6! This is the one that I used for a ‘Bonus Card’, i didn’t have enough of the DSP to make three each for 10 people!

While at OnStage, an event that demonstrators attend to learn and get product early, I saw a card that made me make this card. I don’t know about you, but if I get an idea in my head it is very hard to wait to try and make it! I have a class that is at the Senior Center here in Kernersville that I bring elegant cards for the participants to make, this is one of the cards that we will be making soon.
I used the background stamp set Hardwood from SU! I stamped it with Versamark and then poured copper Embossing powder on it and heat set to make this dynamic background! Very easy (and still fun to do even after 17 years…….I LOVE to watch the magic of embossing!) yet this is a Stunner! The tree is from the NEW catalog from Stampin’ Up! called Rooted in Nature, that will be coming out in June 2018.
I got this set FOR FREE while at On Stage along with 4 other stamp sets! If you want a job where you get freebies, get to play every day and meet FANTASTIC people, join my team and become a Demonstrator!
I colored the Rhinestones using the Bronze Blends so it would all coordinate! THAT is the reason I decided to join SU!, I don’t have to guess which colors coordinate! Plus, I got the discount! hahahaha

The theme this month is Gratitude! Here is my card:
This is a FUN card! I was inspired by BJ Peters, she used this idea but with Eastern Elegance, you can find her card here. I was thinking of other stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! that could be used with this idea of the front flap opening to reveal a sentiment. This is the set that I thought of! Once you pull back the flap, here is what you see:
The inside is a simple piece of cardstock:

The card I am sharing with you today is from the stamp set Hello Friend! I shared this card with you last time:
I, once again, looked in the Catalog for Inspiration! This is the image that struck me as something I wanted to try:
This is using the kit on page 16 & 17: Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit. I don’t have the kit……….yet, but have the stamp set and wanted to give this a try. I DID have the Gold mini sequins! Those are just too stinkin’ cute!! I was giggling when I got them! It doesn’t take much (in the card making world) to make me happy!
I didn’t have the kit, but I loved the way the wreath looked on Crumb Cake, so I was using that. I wanted a lighter green (than pictured) so I used Wild Wasabi as my green. LOVE how the flowers are so white so I wanted to use Versamark and White Embossing Powder. Here is what my card looks like:
Isn’t it pretty? And not too many steps, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!!
The sentiment is on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 1 1/4″, then I used the Envelope Punch Board to round two opposite corners, to give a really pretty look! I popped this up with dimensions after putting some adhesive on the card in the middle of the Wreath and laid down the Gold Mini sequin ribbon. The ribbon is free to move on both ends, only the middle is stuck down.
The Gold Foil Paper is 5″ x 3 3/4″, but I cut around the inside edges to make a frame since you can’t see it and I didn’t want to waste any of it!! The top Crumb cake is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
Easy but definitely stunning! In person, it’s even better!!
