Easy Wishing You Well Christmas Card
Wishing You Well Stamp Set
Hello Paper Crafters!! I just love the new style of stamps by Stampin’ Up! called Distinktive Stamps. They make creating a beautiful image with one stamp so easy. These stamps are made with a new process developed by Stampin’ Up! that creates different opacities for realistic depth and intensity. Another process known as 2-step or 3-step stamping, also created by Stampin’ UP! was how we used to create a similar effect. The reason I love the Wishing You Well stamp set is because it combines the two. My Easy Wishing You Well Christmas Card uses the wreath and bow images to create this simple and easy to put together project. All I added was some DSP and a few red rhinestones.
This stamp set is also part of a collection called “Wishing You Well Cards,” which is part of the ‘You Can Make It” collection. The YCMI collections are inspiring, simple and quick projects for every artisan, but are especially great for beginning stampers. You get everything you need to make the samples on the page which includes the stamp set, paper, ink, adhesive and embellishments. To find more YCMI products check out our annual catalog: 2018-2019.
The Stamparatus is a really fantastic stamp positioning tool to make creating multiples a snap. This tool was developed by Stampin’ Up! in conjunction with our Leader to Leader team (L2L). A group of Stampin’ Up! employees and demonstrators who collaborate in coming up with ideas for stamping tools and helping stampers enjoy the art of stamping and providing feedback and input on new Stampin’ Up! products. This is how the Stamparatus was born. The more I use this tool the more I love it. It really does make stamping multiples so easy,

Cut your pieces.
- Smoky Slate card stock: Cut in half horizontally (5 ½” x 8 ½”), score at 4 ¼”.
- Whisper White card stock: Cut 3” x 3”.
- DSP: Cut 2 ½” x 5 ½”.
Stamp your images.
- Wreath: Stamp on square Whisper White CS first in Call Me Clover ink and then off set the image and stamp in Granny Apple Green ink. Add 4 Red Rhinestones to the wreath.

- Here is another example of fussy cutting.
- Sentiment: Stamp in center of wreath in Real Red ink.
- Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card in Call Me Clover ink.
Putting it all together.

I created a total of 30 Christmas cards in this design. This card design can easily be adapted to any stamp set and DSP.
