I stamped the cardinal on Real Red and his beak separately on Crushed Curry cardstock using Black Tuxedo ink, cut out his beak and adhered it in place.  I like him done this way as there is no coloring to do plus there are no white lines that show around the edges.  Once I die cut and embossed the Heirloom oval, I sponged a little Soft Suede ink on top of it.

Merry Moments DSP - LICI – M – 01 Gnome

Now isn’t he just the cutest fellow!  I had ordered a Gnome die from a friend but she was out of stock, so I went hunting on Pinterest and Facebook pages to see what others had done.  Lots of ideas but I didn’t have half the items they used so just figured it out with stuff that I had.  Most of it is retired items from SU! but it is what I had.  Hope you enjoy my punch art Gnome!

I used the In the Woods die to cut a beard from white cardstock.  It was too long, so I cut it at the pencil marks.  The body was a Layering Oval die cut from Smoky Slate cardstock.  His pom pom was punched using a 5/16-inch circle punch from Glimmer paper and his nose is the half inch punch in Powder Pink cardstock.

I stamped the phrase from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set on a scrap of Merry Moments DSP then punched it out with the Large Oval punch.  This was layered on to the Scallop Oval punch from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  His boots are punched from the Heart To Heart punch in some black glossy photo paper that was in my stash.

The top right corner looked a little blank, so I decided to add a Snowflake Punch from Glimmer paper.

I sponged the body and beard with Basic Gray ink plus I smeared a little over the front of the beard too.  I adhered the point of the beard at the bottom of the body and glue dotted his boots in place.

I cut a rectangle from the Merry Moments DSP at 2” wide by 3” high then cut that into a triangle.  The hat and nose were sponged with Basic Gray ink.  I added the nose to the center of the hat with a glue dot.

Added dimensionals to the nose and bottom of the hat then adhered to the Gnome body.  Add more dimensionals to the hat before adhering to the card front.

I sponged the phrase with Basic Gray ink before adhering it to the scallop oval punch.  Added dimensionals to this as well.

Used a sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set for the inside.

Stamps: Perfectly Plaid (inside & outside).

Cardstock: White, Black, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Glimmer paper, Smoky Slate, Merry Moments 6”x 6” (Holiday 2015/16) DSP.

Ink: Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler.

Tools: bone folder, purchased envelope, sponge, dimensionals, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, glue dots, Old Olive ribbon.

Punches/Dies: 1/2-inch circle punch, 5/16-inch circle punch, In the Woods dies, Layering Oval dies, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Heart To Heart punch, Snowflake Punch.

Here is the Merry Moments 6” x 6” Paper Stack DSP from 2015/16 that I have chopped using Kylie Bertucci’s Love It Chop It method.  I’m on a mission to use up ALL my DSP that I have loved for years!

This was the second card I had prepped for Irene and I to do.  I had pre-stamped my cards at home.  I thought I was well organized until she went to stamp – I had left all the stamps at home!  Luckily Irene had a fair stash of stamps that she made work just fine!

All is Bright DSP


All is Bright DSP LICI-H-01 of 13

I had joined a Paper Share for the Holiday 2018 catalogue.  And as usual, SU! has the most stunning papers but the catalogue does not do them justice.  A Paper Share allows you to see the detail, patterns and weight of each DSP before committing to buying a full pack.  For the designs you love, you can always order a full pack if the catalogue is still current!  I have Loved It long enough, time to Chop It and use it thanks to Kylie Bertucci!  From the All is Bright DSP Paper Share, I ended up with 2 of each design for a total of 26 cards!

Season’s Greetings - LICI-D-12



Stamps: Snowflake Sentiments (2018/19).

Cardstock: White, Tranquil Tide, Shimmery White, Myth’s and Magic Glimmer Paper, Joyous Noel Specialty DSP (Holiday 2018).

Ink: Versamark, Tranquil Tide (inside).

Tools: Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, glue dots, sequins, Copper embossing powder.

Punches/Dies: In the Woods Framelits Dies, Hometown Greetings Edgelits dies.

I cut a white panel at 5-1/4” x 4” just to help guide my layering.

Used a full panel from my Love It Chop It pile (5-1/4” x 4”).  Cut it in half.  Adhere to the top of the white panel.


Die cut the buildings from Shimmery White.  Die cut both end trees from Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhere over the white ones.


The snowy piece was cut from Myth’s and Magic Glimmer Paper. I used the In the Woods Framelits to get the hill shape. Attached this behind the buildings. 


Copper emboss the phrase.  Adhere to the bottom of the white panel then to the card front.


Stamp a phrase for the inside of the card.


I had joined a Paper Share when the 2018 Holiday catalogue came out.  Paper Shares are a great way of seeing all the paper in the catalogue plus you don’t have a huge amount of paper to touch and feel and smell and store etc for years!!  Figured I had loved it long enough, so it was time to chop it!  I had 12 sheets of 6” x 6“paper, two of each design of this beautiful double-sided Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  One side is designed with copper foil accents, it is just stunning! The other side is absolutely stunning too but there is just something about that copper!   I ended up with 24 cards, two of each card.  So here is my last of 12, Love It Chop It cards, using this DSP.
