From Our Family - LICI-D-08


Stamps: Snowflake Sentiments (2018/19).

Cardstock: White, Sahara Sand, Joyous Noel Specialty DSP (Holiday 2018).

Ink: Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand (inside).

Tools: Tombow adhesive, Subtle embossing folder, snail adhesive, glue dots, sequins, Merry Merlot and Copper 5/8” Reversible Ribbon, Copper Trim.

Punches/Dies: Blizzard Thinlits Die.


Cut Sahara Sand at 5-1/4” x 4”. Stamp the phrase at the top.  Run through the Subtle EF.  Cut a full panel from my Love It Chop It pile (5-1/4” x 4”) in half.  Adhere it to the bottom of the Sahara Sand panel.


Cover the join with a ribbon.  Adhere to card front.


I used the Blizzard Thinlits Die to cut the snowflakes from white cardstock.  Tied a knot in the Copper Trim and added it to the large snowflake.  Added a copper sequins from my stash to the smaller snowflake.


Adhere one of the strip wastes that we have in our Love It Chop It stash to the inside of the card.


I first cut my 12 sheets of 6” x 6” Joyous Noel Specialty DSP Paper Share into 4” widths which left me with 12, 2” wide strips.  I left them as is and will cut them down as needed.  I cut the 4” wide pieces down to 5-1/4” high.  That left me with a small strip that just happens to fit across my insert.

Dashing Deer - LICI-D-07


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 7th of 12, Love It Chop It cards, using this DSP.


Stamps: Dashing Deer (inside, Holiday 2018).

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

Ink: Versamark, Tranquil Tide.

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

Punches/Dies: Blizzard Thinlits Die, Detailed Deer Thinlits dies.


Used a full panel from my Love It Chop It pile (5-1/4” x 4”).  I cut it down to 3-3/4” x 5” and adhered to a 5-1/4” x 4” white panel. Cut 2 pieces of Myth’s and Magic Glimmer Paper 1” x 4-1/4”. Tear one long edge of each.  Add dimensionals to the top piece and add to the bottom of the DSP to look like snow. Trim edges then add to the card front.


I don’t have the Copper Foil so I pounced my Versamark ink pad on to a fair size piece of cardstock, poured Copper embossing powder over it and heat embossed.  Then die cut the deer.  I also cut both deer in Whisper White card stock, layered the copper deer on top of the Whisper White deer offsetting them so that there is a “white shadow” showing as Mary Knabe did for the inspiration of my card.


I used the Blizzard Thinlits Die to cut the snowflakes from Myth’s and Magic Glimmer Paper.  Added some sequins from my stash.


Stamped an image and phrase for the inside of the card.  Since I saved that small strip that I cut off my DSP panel, I adhered it to the bottom.

Christmas Greetings - LICI-D-06


Stamps: Alpine Adventure (Holiday 2018), Woodgrain.

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

Ink: Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand (inside).

Tools: dimensionals, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, glue dots, sequins, Festive Farmhouse Cotton twine, Softly Falling embossing folder, White Thread.

Punches/Dies: Layering Ovals Framelits, Sprig punch, Alpine Sports Thinlits dies.


Used a strip from my Love It Chop It DSP stash.  Adhered it to card front.  Before die cutting the sleigh, I stamped a scrap of Sahara Sand cardstock with the Woodgrain stamp in Sahara Sand ink. Added dimensionals to it.


Added some white thread. The rest is straight forward.


Stamped an image to go with the phrase for the inside of the card.


I’m still working on the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP that I have loved and now chopped.  Kept the leftover strips as not to waste any of it!  This was a Paper Share, so I only had 12 sheets of 6” x 6“paper (two of each design) of this beautiful double-sided DSP to deal with!  So off to Pinterest I go!  Thanks, Kylie Bertucci, for giving us permission to Love It Chop It!

Noel - LICI-D-05


Here are the 12 sheets of 6” x 6“paper (two of each design) of this beautiful double-sided Joyous Noel Specialty DSP I had received from a Paper Share I joined when the 2018 Holiday catalogue came out.  One side is designed with copper foil accents and the other side is just as breath taking!  Now that I have chopped it, I’m continuing to make more cards!


Stamps: Greetings of the Season (Holiday 2012), Christmas Pines (Holiday 2016).

Cardstock: White, Tranquil Tide, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Joyous Noel Specialty DSP (Holiday 2018).

Ink: Versamark, Tranquil Tide.

Tools: dimensionals, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, glue dots, sequins, Merry Merlot and Copper 5/8” Reversible Ribbon, Clear embossing powder, Copper Thread.

Punches/Dies: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, Sprig punch.


Used a strip from my Love It Chop It DSP stash.  I over stamped the card front with images from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink before adhering the strip to the card front. 


I embossed the word Noel by first inking the image with Versamark - don’t stamp it yet. Then, ink up your image with Tranquil Tide. Now stamp the image. Cover your image with Clear Embossing Powder and tap off the excess. Heat emboss.  Create with Kaitlyn has a great tutorial on how to heat emboss in every color. 


I added some copper thread behind the phrase.


Stamped an image to go with the phrase for the inside of the card.
