Happy Holly-Days!

Stampin up holiday trinkets holly

More "Holly-Day" glitz with this charming holly stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Trinkets.  I have gotten so much use out of this little set.  Remember the magnets?

I inked each holly leaf in VersaMark, stamped on Sage Shadow card stock, then heat embossed in gold.  Red berries came to life using a 1/4" Circle Punch and Riding Hood Red card stock.  Very vavoom.  Both circles were cropped using Nestabilities Circles and a Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.

The circle is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to a horizontal panel of Always Artichoke Textured card stock.  I added three jubilant musicians and a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Old St. Nick Rub-Ons.

Tucked behind is a Brushed Gold (Stampin' Up! card stock) Top Note Bigz Die Cut.  I layered it on Whisper White that had been stamped using the Bella Toile Background stamp (inked up in Sage Shadow).  A layer of Riding Hood Red and card base of Always Artichoke (4.25 x 5.5, scored at the top), finishes things off.  I used a neat sketch from Jen Del Muro for inspiration.

For this week's Ways to Use Challenge (WT195, envelopes), I used the Bella Toile Background stamp (Sage Shadow) to turn it from plain white to custom coordinated.  TIP:  For your convenience, all Splitcoast Daily Challenges are available on my left side bar. 

Do you have your holiday cards done?  I still have quite a few to go . . . however, I plan to do some mass production this weekend.

  1. Very glitzy! I’m finished with the unique Christmas cards, but need to mass produce a few (10?) to have on hand.

  2. Once again, thanks for reminding me that I bought that metallic paper for a reason; time to get it out and play. It goes so well with embossing.

  3. Fabulous card as always!! I love the embossed holly leaves. I have so many more cards to make…I have orders that I have to fill before I complete my own, I hope to get them completed this week and get them out in the mail!! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love it. Great use of the set, punches and Big Shot. Really enjoy your blog. TFS

  5. I have most of my holiday cards done. The ones I spent way too much time on, are going to my stamp/scrap friends who will appreciate the long effort put into each card.
    In-laws are getting the quick ones!!;)
