09.27.2021…..Happy Monday, everyone! I’m so excited to share my September monthly showcase projects for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! For this month’s projects, I was asked to use products from the gorgeous Painted Christmas Suite from the Stampin’ Up! August – December Mini Catalog. Hope this inspires you to create some holiday cards or projects with this amazing products!
There have also been a few changes to the way the Artisan Design Team is sharing projects this year. The team has been divided into three groups, and each group is assigned a different collection of products to create with. This means an even greater variety of projects and inspiration. And…instead of the monthly blog hops, the team will have a greater presence on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page and their Instagram account as well.Be sure check out the rest of the team’s fabulous creations on the Stampin’ Up!

For the “Seasons Greetings” card, I started with two pieces of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper, and adhered them to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I then used another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock to stamp the berries and leaves (from the Christmas Season Bundle), with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Sea Foam. Before I stamped each of the images, I “stamped off” once, then lightly misted the stamp with my Stampin’ Spritzer before stamping the image on the cardstock. (I repeated this process for each image that I stamped, and also used a paper towel to quickly wiped off the stamps before I stamped the image again.)
After my paper was dry, I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I also added some speckling with my Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker. I then layere a slightly larger piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock underneath, and added a scalloped border on the left side (using one of the Scalloped Contours Dies).
The sentiment (from the Christmas to Remember Bundle), was heat-embossed on Kraft 6″ x 6″ Paper, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut out the sentiment, I popped it up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. To create the bow, I used Linen Thread and several of the gold fibers that I pulled from the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on gold Metallic Pearls, and tucked in one of the Gold Holly Leaves.
To create the mini 3″ x 3″ card, I stamped with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I then layered on a small piece of Painted Christmas DSP. I created the other elements in the card using the same steps as I did for the “Seasons Greetings” card. (See above.)
For the little gift box, I used one of the Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes. to create the band around the box, I used two different strips of Painted Christmas DSP. I also used some Basic White Thick Cardstock, along with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies, to add the scalloped border.
The Basic White Thick Cardstock tag was created with two of the label dies from the Christmas to Remember Bundle. On the smaller label, I stamped the leaves using the steps as the “Seasons Greetings” card. (See above.) I then embossed the larger label with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the two labels together.
To create the bow, I used Gold Fine Art Ribbon, Linen Thread and several of the gold fibers that I pulled from the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon.
