Santa's Sleigh Card with Stampin Up

Santa's Sleigh Card By Stampin Up
Christmas is just around the corner and I am in the mood to made some Christmas Cards. The one I would like to share with you this month is Santa's Sleigh with his reindeer. You have seen me do this card fold before, but so many have asked to see it in other seasons. 


Santa's Sleigh Stamp set (142057)  or  Bundle  (143499) Save 10%       
Santa's Sleigh Thinlits Dies  (140278)
Very Vanilla card stock  4 1/4 x 11, 3 3/4 x 5,  2 pieces  2 1/2 x 5, 2 x 11
Gold Foil card stock  4 x 5 1/4, 2 pieces of 2 3/4 x 5 1/2, 2 1/2 x 4, 2 1/4 x 11
Soft Suede to cut 6 reindeer 
Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine (141983)
Markers to color the presents and trees. 


To make this card stand out, start by scoring your base card at 5 1/2, and 2 3/4. Then score both the gold foil and very vanilla strip.  Be sure to stamp and cut out 6  reindeer. 

Stamp and color 3 trees. Oh and 1 star

Die Cut both sections of the sleigh.  Add your Christmas packages. 

Now when you are ready to assemble; Fold your base card in half the fold the top half back on itself. Do the same to your strip. Only when you are ready to put the strip on the card place the 5 1/2 strip on the 2 3/4 part of the base card. In short, the strip is opposite the base card. 

You are going to love making this card. When mailing it is going to require extra postage, because it is a little bulky.

Foxy Little Thing

It is time to start thinking about fall, and the fun that goes with it. This time of the year is when I love sitting on the porch and watching my fur babies play with the falling leaves. So it is only fitting that there be a post about animals. 

Foxy Little Thing fit just perfect when thinking about fall fun. 

Hardwood stamp (133035) 
Soft Suede(126978) ink pad
Cajun Craze (126965)
Fox Builder Punch (141470)
Foxy Friends Stamp Set (141549)  Or BUNDLE TO SAVE (142326)
Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2; scored at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Old Olive card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 3

-I stamped the hardwood stamp on very vanilla cards stock using the soft suede ink. For this I allow the hardwood stamp to bleed over on all side, even passing over the scored line.

-Using the  Foxy Friends stamp set I picked our 3 different fox faces. I wanted each one to look like he was peeking in. Each one was cut to 2 1/2 x 2 1/4.

- Now no card is finished until you have completed the inside. I punched a fox out of the Fox builder punch. Remember you need to punch 2 ears and 2 tips of his tail. After you fox is together, be sure to stamp his face and legs. (isn't he a cute lit guy). Stamp your tree stomp, and pop him on top.

-I wanted a sentiment to reflect my thoughts, was I used Pretty Kitty (141861) Just Peeking in to say Hello.

-Add some natural twine for texture and you have the perfect card for any occasion.

Of course the Foxy Builder Punch as just as many different uses as all our builder punches. Check out my other animal friends.

opps my monkey lost his tail.

Now if a fox is not your thing, you can use any of these animals to make the same card. And of course, would all be cute with birthday hats, Christmas hats, or bows on their ears. 

This is a small sample of some of the great things you can make with this set.

Shadow Box Frame.

Shadow Box Frame

The Shadow Box Frame is easy, fun and can be use in is so many ways.


1 - 12 x 12 Card stock (or you can use
            thick paper stock.)
1 - 9 3/4 x 9 3/4 heavy cards stock (great               
            place to use the cardboard that
            comes in the back of your DSP.)

1 - 7 1/4 x 7 1/4  Paper or Cards stock

1 - 7 x 7 Paper or cards stock

1-  6 3/4 x 6 3/4 cards stock.

Plus you will need your inside embellishments. Skies the limit.

First score your 12 x 12 card stock or thick paper at 1/2, 1 1/8, 2 3/8 and 3 on all 4 sides. Now with a pencil mark off blocks the 4 corners. In the example below you will cut off the "x" and the "T" will be a tag. Repeat in all 4 corners.

XX            XX 
XT            TX

XT            TX

Next, make an "X" in the middle of your paper crossing over the first score line closes to the center. Using you straight edge, create a box around the center "X", large about 3 1/2 inches. Now cut on each line. When you are finished you will have 4  triangles, (do not discard). Fold on each of the score lines using your bone folder.

Fold your tag in and adhere to form all 4 corners.

Measure your 9 3/4 x 9 3/4 to be sure it is not too big. IF it is a tiny bit small that is okay, but if it is too big you need to trim it down now. Adhere the backing to the bottom, being sure the 1/2 inch scored section is folded to the inside.

Now let's work on the top side. Fold and adhere the inside pieces down. Be sure the inside edges are square. You can do this with any straight edge, just stand it up to be sure the inside flap is not pushed too far back or too far forward.

You are ready to embellish the inside of your frame.

Here are some other Shadow Boxes that were completed in the class. A special thank you to the group for letting me share how creative they are.

Adult Coloring Books Continued.

Thank you everyone for all the great responses to my Adult Coloring Book post. I will be happy to show you some other ways to enjoy adult coloring. Stamping the imagine, is only a small part of designing your own coloring pages. As previously stated it is important to use the right ink and marker combination.

I have designed a few coloring cards mounted and are complete, except for the actual coloring. Now I can mail my favorite card to to someone one that enjoys coloring. They can enjoy coloring their own card. In some situations, I send the uncolored card to a friend that likes to color with a posted note inside with the message. "A card that keeps on giving. Color this card and send it to another friend to enjoy." Here is an example: 

As you can see the top cards are finished. It's the unfinished ones I mail the my friends that love to color. 

Stampin Up offers lots of ideas for adult coloring. Come join me again as I use more of our new catalog stamps for coloring. You can make your own color cards too, come shop with me.

 Thank you for your support.
