Hello October!  The weather is changing back to cool and crisp mornings and cool breezy evenings. My favorite time of year.

Today’s post is a clean and simple CASE from Mary Fish. I am one of Mary’s Pals.  I’m sure you all know that in the stamping world, CASE is an acronym for Copy And Share Everything.  I took Mary’s sketch and her version of it and added my own little twist. I loved the way she used the Celebration Labels Dies on her card, so I used them the same way.

Here’s Mary’s Sketch:

My version celebrates the Christmas Holiday with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (part of the new DSP promotion Stampin’ Up! is starting today. All the details are at the end of this post).

Here’s how I did it:

  • Start with an A-2 (4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″) Whisper White card base;
  • Add a 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″ Mossy Meadow card stock layer;
  • Then attach a 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8 Whisper White layer. This layer will be the top layer of your card.
  • Crop three labels with the Celebration Labels Dies
    • The first label is 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 and is the 3rd from the largest in the die set. I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the plaid pattern from the Warm Hugs DSP. Then cut this label to a 3″ width.
    • The second label is 2 5/8 x 3 1/8, the4th from the largest in the die set. I cropped it with Real Red card stock. Then cut this label to a 2 5/8″ width.
    • The third label is 1 5/8 x 2 5/8, the smallest of the labels in the die set. I cropped it with Whisper White card stock.  Cut this label to a 2 1/8″ width.
  • Stamp the  “Merry Christmas” sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink onto the Whisper White label. The sentiment stamp is from the Celebration Tidings stamp set.
  • Layer your labels onto the Whisper White top layer.
  • Crop a few little Mossy Meadow sprigs from the Celebration Labels Dies and attach them to the corner of the Whisper White label.
  • Add a Linen Thread bow with a little cropped heart, also from the Celebration Labels Dies.
  • I added another little Real Red heart, just for fun.


  • The Celebration Labels Dies and the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set are bundled to save you 10%.
  • Add the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper at 15% off the regular price.
  • Just a few little extras, and you can create beautiful, clean and simple cards for almost any occasion.
