Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine

Hello there stamping friends. Welcome! Welcome! I am thrilled to share my projects which I designed and have been shared by Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine Blog and their post can be found HERE.


With the very recent release of the new 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue, I’m here today to provide you with some Christmas/Holiday craft inspiration. I’m using the Toile Christmas Stamp Set and the Christmas Cardinal Dies as the main focus for my projects today but also many of the products from the coordinating Toile Tidings Suite, which this stamp set and dies come from.


I’ve created 3 cards, one Gift Card Holder, some cute little party favours and as well wrapped and decorated some gifts with the coordinating Toile Tidings Gift wrap. How beautiful are the Real Red and Garden Green Colours for that traditional Christmas look?


For my first card start with a standard-sized card base using Shimmery White cardstock. Mine is 21cm x 14.8cm, scored in half to make a landscape orientation card.

Card Layers – Cut 2 pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock. 1 @ 14.6cm x 10.3cm, 1 @ 14.4cm x 10.1cm
DSP – Cut 1 piece of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper 9 cm x 4cm

Stamp the branch image over the smaller Shimmery White Cardstock layer using Jet Black Stazon Ink in a random pattern. Then using an Aqua Painter colour in the image using Garden Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Classic Inks.

Adhere the two card layers together and then adhere to the card base. Add the Designer Series Paper piece to the front. Embellish with the Real Red 1” Ruched Ribbon, the Garden Green 3/8” Double-Stitched Ribbon, Linen Thread and Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots. Finish the card off with the sentiment panel which has been stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink on to Basic Black Cardstock and then heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.


My second card is a fun square card. I love creating square cards for something different and a fun and cute look.

Card Base – Cut 1 piece of Garden Green Cardstock @ 10.16cm x 20.32cm – scored in half
Card Layer – Cut 1 piece of Garden Green Cardstock @ 9.85cm x 9.85cm and emboss with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this to card base.

Die cut the wreath out of Garden Green Cardstock using the All-Around Wreaths Dies and then adhere it to the card front.

Stamp the Cardinal bird from the Toile Christmas Stamp set on Shimmery White Cardstock, using Jet Black Stazon Ink and then using and Aqua Painter colour in the Cardinal using Real Red and Crushed Curry Classic Ink. Once dry die cut using the Christmas Cardinal Dies and then adhere the bird to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finish the card off with some die cuts from also from the Christmas Cardinal Dies, Linen Thread, Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots and the sentiment from the Tidings All Around Stamp Set.


My third card is again cut from Shimmery White cardstock but this time in the portrait orientation.

Card Base – Cut 1 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock @ 10.5 x 29.6cm
Card Layers – Cut 2 pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock. 1 @ 14.6cm x 10.3cm, 1 @ 14.4cm x 10.1cm

Stamp the wreath image from the Tidings All Around Stamp Set on the smaller Shimmery White Cardstock Layer using Garden Green Classic Ink and then stamp the small dots on the wreath using Real Red Classic Ink. Adhere the card layers and the card base together for the beginning of your card.

Die cut a Vellum Scalloped Circle, using the Layering Circles Dies, and adhere the circle into the centre of the wreath.

Cut the Real Read 1” Ruched Ribbon in half and layer that over the vellum. Finish off the card with a piece of Garden Green 3/8” Double-Stitched Ribbon, Linen Thread, Gold Glimmer Paper Die Cuts and the sentiment panel stamped on Crumb Cake Card Stock using Jet Black Stazon Ink.



Next up in my projects for today is a gorgeous Gift Card Holder for a standard ‘credit card’ sized gift card.

Cut 2 pieces Garden Green cardstock @ 9.5 cm x 6.4cm. Then using the Stitched Rectangle Dies die cut a Garden Green panel for the inside insert.
Cut from Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper – 2 x 9.5cm circles and 2 x 6.4cm circles (either use dies for this or trace and fussy cut circles that are of the same size).

Adhere the smaller circles on the shorter side of the 9.5cm x 6.4cm Garden Green Cardstock piece, and the larger circles on the longer side. Have it so that the circles are just touching each other when they are folded over. Adhere the second Garden Green piece to the back to ‘hide’ where you have adhered the DSP and also adhere the Stitched Rectangle Piece on the inside and decorate how you would like.

Cut a 1” Real Red Belly Band to hold the Gift Card Holder closed. Decorate with Garden Green 3/8” Double-Stitched Ribbon, Linen Thread, die cuts from the Christmas Cardinal Dies and the sentiment from the Toile Christmas Stamp Set, stamped on Basic Black Cardstock with Whisper White Craft Ink and then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.


To also go with the fabulous projects so far are these super cute Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes. These are fabulous to fit a Ferrero Rocher or a couple of Lindt Balls in them as a gorgeous party favour or place setting for your Christmas Table.

Cut 1 piece of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper @ 15.24cm x 15.24cm. Using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die, die cut the box (it cuts and embosses in one piece) and fold together.
Stamp the sentiment from the Toile Christmas Stamp Set and die cut the label using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die.

Attach the label using either Garden Green 3/8” Double-Stitched Ribbon or Real Red 1/8” Curly Ribbon. Add gold Jingle Bell with Linen Thread to add to that Christmas look and feel.

Last and by no means least I’m showing you the oh so beautiful Toile Tidings Gift Wrap. Yes! Gift Wrap! This elegant gift wrap coordinates with projects and cards that you make using the Toile Tidings Suite for that beautiful ‘everything matches’ look.

I’m just showing you two ways you can use the gift warp today but really you are only limited by your imagination. Combine the gift wrap with many of the ribbons that Stampin’ Up! has in their catalogues and use products like punches and Alphabet dies like the Hand-Lettered Prose to make personalised, coordinating gift tags.

I do hope that I’ve given you some inspiration using the products the Toile Tidings Suite and also inspiration to start those Holiday projects. Only 15 weeks till Christmas!
