Farmhouse Christmas Day 4

I hope you had a great weekend.  It has been cold and rainy here – pretty yucky really.  But no snow or ice so far.  Last year we had snow on this same weekend – and we don’t really get much snow – so that was unusual.  Anyway on to our next Farmhouse Christmas Project.  I have another card for you that was one of the 8 from my fall retreat.  This one uses the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and pairs it with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.  It was an idea I found online.

This one is easy – pick the patterned paper that you like – if you like both sides of a pattern this idea works well – you just cut off a strip and flip it over for the front of the card.  Stamp the words that you want from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and fussy cut around them.  The mixed fonts is very popular right now.  Then add a bow with the coordinating twine. 

Supply List

  • Merry Christmas to All stamp set
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
  • Whisper White Thick card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Paper Snips
  • Mini Dimenstionals
  • Glue dot

This would be a quick one to make a whole stack of.  I hope you like it.

Right now we have a year end closeout sale going on.  Many items from the Holiday Catalog will be retiring when it ends on January 2nd and some are even discounted right now.  The paper and the twine I used are retiring.

Festive Farmhouse Jar – Day 3

One of my favorite things about the Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat is to surprise everyone with little gifts throughout the weekend.  For the Farmhouse theme there were tons of ideas online and in the stores.  I even managed to find the little red truck with a tree in the back – these were ornaments that I decided to use to make a little decor piece.  This idea is floating around online in a variety of places.

I actually used glue dots under the four tires of the truck to anchor in to the bottom of the jar.  Then sprinkled in some “snow” that I found at the store.  I decorated the lid with a circle of the Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and some of the striped burlap ribbon.  I added a simple tag made from banners and tied them on with the Farmhouse Cotton Twine. 

Supply List

  • Farmhouse Christmas stamp set
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper
  • 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
  • Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder
  • Festive Farmhouse Cardstock Pack
  • Mossy Meadow ink
  • Triple Banner Punch
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • Glue Dots
  • 1-3/4″ Circle punch
  • Layering Circle Framelits
  • Tear & Tape

This little jar makes a cute desk decoration or gift for a neighbor.  Enjoy!

Farmhouse Christmas – Day 2

Moving on to day 2 of my Farmhouse Christmas projects from the Fall Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.  I have another card for you.  It came from an idea from another demonstrator that is part of the Artisan Design team.  The Stampin’ Up! Artisan design team always give me lots of inspiration.  They are such a creative bunch and I’m excited to see the new team in 2019.  

This card has the beautiful Galvanized Metal paper with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder for a background – I just love the look of it.  The cute little house from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set is perfect for the sentiment ” from our home to yours”.  The Cotton Twine is one of my favorites and the assortment has three colors – Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, and the Cherry Cobbler that I used here.  We have had this twine in the past in some other colors.  I was happy to see it back – it’s so soft!

Supply List

  • Farmhouse Christmas stamp set
  • Farmhouse Framelits dies
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
  • Whisper White Thick card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Crumb Cake card stock
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
  • Galvanized Metallic Paper
  • Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • Black Memento Ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

On my supply list I don’t usually include the basics like Snail Adhesive, Paper Snips, and the Stampin’ Trimmer – those are things used pretty much on every project.  And I use my Simply Scored Tool for all my scoring.  If you’d like me to list the basics every time let me know.

Farmhouse Christmas Day 1

Earlier in the fall I held my Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.  The theme was Farmhouse Christmas and I used that suite of products for the little gifts and all the projects we made.  I don’t think that I ever shared them here on my blog. Many of the projects were inspired from other other demonstrator ideas or from decor or crafty ideas I found online. Places like Pinterest and Instagram and magazines provide lots of inspiration.  I have 12 different projects to share so I thought I would do a 12 days of Farmhouse Christmas! 

So here we go with day 1 – this card idea came from a non-Stampin’ Up! card that I found online.  It’s similar to another layout that I’ve used quite a bit lately. 

For this card I’ve used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper, Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine, and the Galvanized Buttons from the Festive Farmhouse Suite.  The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set – I just love the size of this and the mixed fonts.  I think the Sprig punch also fits well in this suite of products although you will find it with the Joyous Noel suite in the Holiday Catalog.

Supply List

  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
  • Galvanized Buttons
  • Merry Christmas to All stamp set
  • Sprig Punch
  • Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock
  • Very Vanilla Card Stock
  • Memento Black ink
  • Mossy Meadow Card Stock
  • Mini glue dots
  • Paper Snips

For this card the measurements are

  • Very Vanilla Thick card stock 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Very Vanilla card stock 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″

Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the front of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.  Stamp the sentiment on the Very Vanilla layer at an angle in the corner of the card stock.  Then adhere that layer to the front of the card so that the words are straight and the layer hangs off the edge of the card.  Use Paper Snips to trim off the excess around the edge of the card front.  Punch three sprigs and attach with glue dots to the card.  The button is also added with a glue dot.

This one actually turned out to be my favorite card from the 8 that we made.  It’s another card design that would be easy to switch out the designer paper for other designs.
