This Nativity stamp set reminds me of one Stampin’ Up! had years ago.  It is perfect for using either Markers or Blendabilities.  This card uses Blendabilities and one Marker.  Enjoy making this fun Christmas card!
Nativity Christmas Card

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Gentle Peace Photopolymer #139523
Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad
Smokey Slate Marker
Coastal Cabana Blendabilities
Daffodil Delight Blendabilities
Melon Mambo Blendabilities
Old Olive Blendabilities
Card Stock: Whisper White
Daffodil Delight
Bermuda Bay
Other:  Dimensionals
Scissors or Paper Snips

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Let’s do our stamping and coloring first.  Stamp the Nativity on Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  You can choose any color to start coloring.  Watch the Blendabilities for Beginners video.
Here is a list of what each Blendabilities and Marker are used for:
~Smokey Slate: Swaddling/blanket around Baby Jesus
~Daffodil Delight:  Halos, hair, beard, star.  I used the light and medium to blend the halos.  Hair is the darkest Blendabilities.  Choose which you want for the hair and beard-the darkest was used here.  The star is the lightest.  Around the star alternates the light and medium.  The circle Frame around the star is the lightest.
~Melon Mambo:  Mary’s clothes and head covering.  The Blending technique was used here.
~Old Olive: Joseph’s clothes and head covering.  The Blending technique was also used here.
~Coastal Cabana:  Stained Glass background and borders.  Background behind Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph:  This is the only part of the Stained Glass where I actually used all 3 Blendabilities in each rectangle.  The Frame just around the background is the lighter Blendabilities.  The part behind the star alternates the medium and light Blendabilities.  The outside frame has the darkest Blendabilities in each corner and the alternates the medium and light in between the corners.
2.  Cut your colored image out with scissors.  I tried not to leave any white showing this time.  Put Dimensionals on the back.
3.  Cut your Daffodil Delight card stock at 3″ x 4-3/4″.  Center the cut out colored image on top.  Add Dimensionals to the back.
4.  Cut your Bermuda Bay card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Add your layered image.  You are done!

Happy Christmas Card Making!
Nendy Kerr

Here is a Christmas Card with a twist on the Triple Time Stamping Technique using Framelits instead of cutting rectangles.  This card also uses a single image stamp instead of lots of different stamps so this is a quick and easy card to make lots of.  Enjoy!
Newborn King Christmas Card

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  The Newborn King wood #135110 clear #135113 French #136976 Spanish #136973

Punch:  Decorative Label #120907
Other:  Stamp-a-ma-jig #101049
SNAIL Adhesive
Tombow Glue
Dimensionals
Dazzling Details

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Cut your Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing Folder.  Glue to card base.
2.  You will be using all the Oval Framelits except the Large Scallop – that leaves six.  The smallest one will be Whisper White card stock.  The 2nd from the smallest will be Garden Green card stock, the 3rd from the smallest will be Whisper White, the 4th from the smallest will be Garden Green, the 5th from the smallest will be Whisper White, the 6th from the smallest will be Garden Green.  You can cut all 3 shapes from the same color at the same time.
3.  Stack the Whisper White Ovals in order using some SNAIL Adhesive (which you touch a couple of times so it is easier to remove).  I usually use about 1/4″ length on each side so the card stock stays in place.
4.  Stamp your image on your Stamp-a-ma-jig.  More instructions in THIS VIDEO.  Position it so the stable and Baby Jesus is in the center of the smallest Oval.  Leave the imaging sheet and Handle in place while you color your stamp with Markers.  (You can use just one ink pad for the whole stamp if you want to.  That will make it even quicker.
~Garden Green:  Tree tops and shrubs
~Chocolate Chip:  Tree Trunks, stable, Baby Jesus’ head
~Night of Navy-Joseph
~Melon Mambo:  Mary
Breath on the stamp several times to remoisten the ink.  Readjust Stamp-a-ma-jig if necessary.  Remove imaging sheet and stamp.  Color in the stable with the brush tip of the Chocolate Chip Marker and make thin lines on the tree trunks with the fine tip.
5.  Insert the Garden Green Ovals with the stamped Whisper White Ovals.  Use SNAIL or Fast Fuse or Tombow Glue.  Add Dimensionals to the back of the largest Oval.  Set aside.
6.  Stamp your sentiment in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock.  My strip of card stock is 1-1/2″ tall and was around 3″ long to start with.  Use the Decorative Label Punch to punch the ends of your sentiment strip.
7.  Place Ovals and sentiment in desired positions.  Attach the Ovals with Dimensionals.  Add Dimensionals to the back of the lower edge of your sentiment and Fast Fuse or Tombow Glue to the back of the top part.
8.  Now for some sparkle!  Add Dazzling Details to all the embossed dots that still show up on your card front.  You can also “dot your I”  and add some to the inside of the swirls on your sentiment.  Set aside to dry.
9.  You now have a wonderful Christmas card to give to someone special.

Happy Christmas Card Making!

I wanted to make a Fall version of a Triple Time Stamping Technique card.  I made two using the Fall Fest stamp set.  Hope you have as much fun making this card (or your version of it) as I did!  Pictured are a Summer and two Fall versions of this technique.

Cajun Crasze
Other:  Fast Fuse or SNAIL Adhesive
Stampin’ Pierce Mat #126199

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Cajun Craze card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Cut your middle Cajun Craze piece at 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″.  Cut your small Cajun Craze piece at 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″.
2.  Cut your Whisper White pieces:  large at 4″ x 5-1/4″, middle at 3″ x 3-3/4″, and your small piece at 2″ x 3-1/4″.  Layer the Whisper White pieces together with a little bit of SNAIL Adhesive.  Make sure to touch each short pieces of adhesive with your fingers a couple of times so you can remove the layers without tearing the card stock.
3.  Stamp “Hello Fall” with Mossy Meadow ink on the top Whisper White card stock piece.  Place your layered Whisper White pieces on top of the Stampin’ Pierce Mat.  Always use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat with Photopolymer stamps so you will get a great stamped image.  Stamp your Pumpkins first.  I colored mine with Tangerine Tango and Garden Green Markers.  Stamp the long leaves in Wild Wasabi in and the smaller leaves with Crushed Curry ink.
4.  Now peel apart the Whisper White pieces.  Attach each Whisper White piece to the corresponding Cajun Craze piece and attach them all together from smallest to largest to card base.  You have a quick Fall card – or whatever theme you chose to make!

Happy Fall Stamping!

We decided this would be great to put some snacks in for late morning snack if your Thanksgiving Dinner is mid afternoon, or for later that evening when you want something to eat but not a whole meal.  You can also write names on either the bags or tags.
1.  Get out the paper bags, Baker’s Twine, and the round tags.  Choose a Pumpkin to stamp at the bottom and a sentiment to stamp on the round tag.  You can stamp on either the plain or patterned side of the tag.
2.  Stamp a Pumpkin on each bag as shown in the picture.  I used Tangerine Tango ink.
3.  Stamp the sentiment on the Round Tag.  Some liked the plain side, some liked the patterned side.  Use a Black or Brown ink.  We used “Grateful for All Things” from the For All Things stamp set.
4.  Tie a bow in each Round Tag using your Baker’s Twine.  Attach to your Bag.  I used Tombow since children are involved.
5.  You can fill with Treats later and use the long white bag closure stickers to hold the bags closed until you are ready to pass out the treats.

Name Place Cards
Thanksgiving Name Place Tag
1.  There are 20 of the “Ticket” shaped tags.  Use two-still together-and write someone’s name on it.  Do this for up to ten guests.

Thankful for….. Cards

Thankful For..... Card1.  Cut ten (or the number of people at the table) card bases (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Fold at 4-1/4″) from Whisper White card stock.
2.  Stamp “Thankful for…” in Tangerine Tango ink.
3.  If desired you can stamp either leaves (Tangerine Tango ink) and/or acorns (Chocolate Chip ink) to decorate your card.
