Glad you are back for day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas! Today’s project features the A Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper and creating custom ribbon. My friend Brenda Nelson over at Stamps and Stretchy Pants and I have had fun sharing so much inspiration with you this month! And she is so talented, I hope you have been hopping over to visit her each day to see what she is sharing!
Stampin’ Up! is featuring the A Walk in the Forest designer series paper as a give-back item to help those in need during the holidays this year. With each pack purchased, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3. And this paper is awesome! You can get a pack now until January 3rd, or while supplies last.
One thing I love about today’s project is the versatility it shows in the designer series paper, which can be playful, whimsical, rustic and even a bit elegant. I pulled in several other items, and love the final result! The Modern Oval Punch provides a great focal point for a sentiment. And the holly from the Sending Cheer Bundle adds a fun touch.
My favorite part of this project though is the custom ribbon. It is made with the Iridescent Ribbon in the September – December 2023 Mini Catalog. However, I colored it using Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers, and the result is amazing! And it’s so easy to do! The ribbon remains iridescent, but with rich color. You could create custom ribbon this way in any color you would like for your project!
Vellum Cardstock pine needles, and Wink of Stella splatters add even more interest, and help pull the details together. The sentiment is from a stamp set called Throughout the Year. I divided the sentiment when I stamped it, so it was more vertical on the punched oval.
To Create this Project:
- Cut a 4 1/4″ x 10″ card base, scored at 5 1/2″
- Designer Series Paper 4″ x 4 1/4″
- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 4 1/4″ x 3/4″
- Very Vanilla Cardstock 4″ x 4 1/4
Color ribbon with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends, then cut in half lengthwise. Tie a bow with one of the strips. Adhere designer series paper to card front. Splatter with Wink of Stella. Die cut Cherry Cobbler strip with border die and adhere strip to bottom of card front. Adhere unused piece of colored ribbon across top of border strip. Trim. Punch a Very Vanilla modern oval. Add sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink, then adhere oval to card front with dimensionals. Stamp berries in Cherry Cobbler ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock and holly leaves in Pretty Peacock ink on Pretty Peacock cardstock. Die cut berries and holly. Die cut two pine boughs from Vellum. Layer holly, berries, and pine boughs on card front, then adhere in place. Adhere bow to sentiment label. Adhere Vanilla layer inside card. Stamp sentiment as desired inside card in Cherry Cobbler ink.
