A Pretty Present Trio

Quilted Christmas Christmas Cards - Rosanne Mulhern

Today’s card is a combination of Designer Series Paper Collections and a few different framelits.

Here’s the measurements

  • Whisper White thick card stock: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Garden Green DSP: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock:  3 7/8 x 5 1/8
  • Whisper White card stock:  3 3/4 x 5

Here’s the details

  • The two Designer Series Paper collections that I used are Be Merry and Quilted Christmas DSP.
  • The Garden Green DSP panel is adhered directly to the card base and the Whisper White panel is adhered directly to the Cherry Cobbler card base.  But don’t glue the Cherry Cobbler panel to the DSP just yet.
  • To create the presents, I cut a card stock base from the Layering Squares framelits using two different sizes of the scalloped squares framelits.  They’re then layered with a straight square framelit in the DSP patterns.
  • Using another scalloped square framelit, I cut a ribbon for each box.
  • The bow was created using the flower framelit from the Quilt Builder Framelits.  I think this card is a good example of just how versatile framelits can be.
  • The gifts are layered and popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Quilted Christmas Christmas Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern

  • After positioning the presents, I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the Cherry Cobbler panel and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals before adhering it to the Garden Green DSP panel.
  • The sentiment, which is from Santa’s Sleigh stamp set, was the inspiration for this card and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.
  • It’s layered on two framelits from the Layering Ovals Framelits and popped with dimensionals.

  • The project is “wrapped” up with a piece of Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.

Just a change of card stock color and DSP patterns and this would make a perfect birthday card, too!


The Stamparatus can be ordered again, starting today!

The second (and last) reservation window will remain open from December 5–30

PLEASE NOTE that during this reservation period Stampin’ Up! will take as many orders as they receive and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Here are the changes to the ordering process:

  • Beginning March 19, Stampin’ Up! will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in the warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because they are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, they will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Here’s what hasn’t changed:

  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
  • If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The final reservation window will open at 2:00 P.M. MT ( 4:00 P.M. ET) on December 5. 
Please note other important information:
  • For easy ordering, you can visit my online shop HERE
  • Create an account with me.
  • There will be a link right on the home page to click to RESERVE your Stamparatus.  *Your credit card will not be charged until your order ships.
  • When your Stamparatus is ready to ship you will get an email notifying you that it is in your cart.  You will be able to add to that order.  If your order will ship before March 31, you will qualify for one free Sale-a-bration item with just a small additional purchase.

Here’s a terrific video highlighting this amazing tool…

I missed out on the first round of ordering and was so disappointed when the ordering window closed so quickly.  This is a great solution and a very fair way for everyone to get their hands on this fantastic tool.  I cannot wait to order mine today!

Thanks very much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Take care,

  1. Love it! I needed a little idea for the 6×6 leftovers and this is perfect! Thanks so much.

  2. wonderful…to save DSP and cardstock I made my first layer green dsp 4 x 5 1/4 then 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 red CS then 3 1/2 x 3 1/4 white. I turned over the 4 x 5 1/4 DSP and drew the outline of the 3 3/4 x 3 1/3 red layer and used small 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 square die from sizzix within that outline and got four boxes…then I took the 3 1/2 x 3 1/4 white layer and drew an outline on the back of the red layer within that outline and cut out 4 scalloped squares 1 3/8 (or 1 1/2). Using the outlines I was able to layer without seeing there are cut outs from the green DSP and the red layer and it provides 4 more presents. I used the retired ribbon punch from SU for the packages and your idea from the quilted Christmas dies for the bow. A simple 1/4″ x 2″flagged merry Christmas stamped and called it done! Thanks for a super sample HMMM just remember my 1 1/4″ square SU punch and 1 3/8″ scalloped square…even easier!
    blessings Patti
