Happy Thanksgivukkah! Jewish Celebrations Revisited

Jewish Celebrations 2

Happy Thanksgivukkah!  No, that isn’t a typo.  Today, Hannukkah starts on Thanksgiving, which won’t happen again for around 100 years.  The Jewish Celebrations stamp set is a great one to use for this very special occasion!  I still have a few more cards to make but wanted to show you this one in case you are looking for a design.  This sketch is a very nice one to use because it showcases whatever stamp you want and still has some interesting details added.  As all holiday cards should be (in my opinion at least), this card comes together very easily without a lot of fuss.  I used the new silver foil paper that was embossed with the Stripes Textured Impression Embossing Folder and another piece trimmed to fit horizontally and was layered with Pool Party and the new silver 1/8″ ribbon. The Frosted Finishes Embellishments, which is probably the coolest embellishment that Stampin’ Up! has ever come out with, was the PERFECT touch on this card.  The focal point, which is the beautiful Star of David, was stamped twice – once on Bermuda Bay and again on Pool Party – in the Silver Metallic Encore Pad.  The star was fussy cut from the Pool Party and popped up with dimensionals and a rhinestone added to the center.  The sentiment was heat embossed in Pool Party and little banners made with the silver foil paper.  The hexagon punch was used to cut the ends easily.

It’s All in the Details

I also made another Hanukkah card (click here to see) so you can use one or the other or a combination of both!  I hope you make one for your friends or family.  Thanksgiving is supposed to be a day to count our blessings (not SHOPPING! Sorry, I just had to say it!), and I am so blessed with a wonderful family.  To my friends, locally and virtually, I wish you all a very blessed holiday season!

Keep calm and craft on!

Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit

3 Cards


If you are looking for a quick way to make special cards that won’t take an entire weekend, then the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit is just what you are looking for!  You can make these as simple or as “stepped up” as you would like.  Since I like my cards to be pretty detailed, I thought I would show you just a few ways you can add some stunning details that will only take an extra step or two.

Merry Little Christmas 3

The first card just had the embossing folder, Delicate Designs, used on the edge of Real Red cardstock.  Isn’t it sweet?  And how easy is that!?

Merry Little Christmas 2

This card just added a Real Red background to the DSP, which was embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and a button with some baker’s twine, and the sentiment has some cute candy dots,  and look how cute it is!  This card is very easy to do and will be a family favorite for everyone on your list!

Merry Little Christmas 1

I used the folded Christmas tree fold on the last card.  I saw this on Splitcoaststampers last year and have been waiting impatiently to add it to a holiday card this year.  The only difference for my card is that I used the scalloped circle framelit instead of the regular circle edge.  I then added pretty rhinestones.  The Real Red card base was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  This card is so much fun to make!
