CASEing Coast to Coast Christmas Wishes

Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern

Welcome to another CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) installment with Karen Hallam at Karen’s Stamping Habit.  This month I created a project and Karen will put her creative spin on it.  I’m so enthralled with the Poinsettia Petals bundle.  While I’m still creating projects with this bundle, I think this more traditional card is my favorite so far.

I created a slimline card last week using this layout. You can see that one HERE.  I simply reconfigured the measurements to fit a standard A2 card.  I combined patterns from the Plaid Tidings and Tis the Season Designer Series Paper.  A list of all the products I used is below.

The sentiments on both the front and inside are from the Toile Christmas stamp set.

Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern

I’ve decided that the Poinsettia Petals bundle is my absolute favorite from the August-December 2020 catalog.  I’ve been creating with it non-stop over the past week and still have many more ideas.  One reason is that I love winter flowers like Poinsettias, Amaryllis, Christmas cactus and Paperwhites.  When it comes to Poinsettias, I’m drawn to the lighter colored rather than the traditional reds.  My pink-toned paper poinsettias on this card are a testament to that.

Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern

The poinsettias and berry sprigs were cut from shimmery white paper. I lightly sponged the poinsettias with Petal Pink ink.  The leaves are cut from Soft Sea Foam card stock.

For the flower centers, I cut a die from the Poinsettia dies and added rhinestones .  This really added to the richness of the card.  I’ll be adding these to other poinsettias I create.

Hello Fall Friends

It’s finally Friday!  What a long week it’s been and I even had two days off this week.  On my two days off from school this week, I seriously needed to turn off the news and just create.  Although I primarily share Stampin’ Up! projects, I also enjoy other stamp companies’ images as well.  Today’s card features a stamp set from a favorite stamp company, Hello Bluebird.  And their Fall Friends stamp set is one of my favorites.  

Hello Bluebird Fall Friends Friendship Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern

I love these sweet images, especially the book toting deer.  I think she’s a librarian! I also enjoyed coloring these.  I used a combination of Stampin’ Blends and Copic markers.

The buffalo checked paper came from my embarrassing large stash.  I’m pretty sure I picked it up at Joann’s.

Hello Bluebird Fall Friends Friendship Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern

The inside sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.

I’ve been sending a lot of cards “just because” these days and I have a special stamping friend that I’ll be mailing this one to.  

Thank you for spending some time here today.  I hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing Fall weekend.

Take care,

Rosanne

Pretty Forever Fern Trio

Stampin Up Forever Fern Birthday Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Today I’m sharing a few pretty cards featuring the Forever Fern Bundle.  I instantly fell in love with this bundle when it was introduced in the Annual Catalog.  The creative possibilities with these products are endless.  The cards I created today can be used for so many different occasions by adding a sentiment of your choice.  Two of my cards are birthday cards and one is a get well card.

The layout for each card is basically the same with a different color scheme. For each card, I created my own version of Designer Series Paper by stamping a floral panel using the images from Forever Fern stamp set.  I also stamped a few images and cut them using the Forever Flourishing dies to add to the embossed panel. The gold foil leaves are from the Forever Gold DSP.
