This blog hop features the Trimming the Town suite, so you will get lots of ideas and inspiration from my fellow demonstrators participating on this hop. So make sure you hop with us today as you get ready to make your Christmas projects with this suite! I know you will fall in love with all the different project ideas!!

Easy Christmas Card to make
My card today features the suite of “Trimming the Town” from Stampin’ Up! which includes a designer series paper, a stamp set with a coordinated die set, as well as a Ribbon pack with both Old Olive and Real Red ribbons with a gold edge that looks very festive and an embellishment pack that has stars, and little dots that will surely decorate your cards really nice!
The designer series paper a.k.a. DSP or paper pack in this suite has images that can be die cut as well with the coordinating die set, which ultimately makes it super easy for you to put together cards. You will see this on the card I show below..
This DSP also have have scenery designs, so you can create cards with premade scenes, where you would only need to add a sentiment, a bow and it would look perfect!
It also includes fun patterns that you can use to make any type of card, not just Christmas. Plus there is one sheet that is all about sentiments in so many languages!!! so you can customize your cards with different languages, which comes very handy, since this stamp set does not have sentiment.
By now I am sure you see that this paper pack contains patterns that can be use for so many type of cards, so it is very versatile!
And as far as the stamp set, please notice that the majority of the images on this set has a coordinating die, so no fussy cutting at all! Plus there are additional border dies that can make the cutest landscape with pines.. So you can make snow scenes if using white paper; though I am sure you can create different season landscapes if playing with different cardstock colors.
Below is the card I created using this suite!
As usual, I used the designer series paper as my inspiration. This is one of the ways I find myself selecting colors for my cards fast and usually they turn really good..
So if you struggle with color combos, I challenge you to select a paper pack and see the colors you like from the patterns. Then select a few of them to make a card. Let me know how it goes.. I’d love to hear from you..
Even better, if you have other ways to get color combos, share them with us in the comments.. we learn so much when we share with each other..
For my card I used the the houses and the little wreath from the designer series paper. And I made the snowy landscape with the dies.
I cut both of the dies with Whisper White. The one with the pine trees and the one without them, that way I could have two layers in the landscape scene I created.
And for the pine trees, I decided to color them using the stampin’ blends. this was particularly easy as these borders were cut in Whisper White. To embellish them a little bit more, I added Wink of stella to the top of the Pine trees.
By the way, I could have used designer series paper for the background, since there is one sheet with a snowy sky pattern. However for my card I decided to go with cardstock (Misty Moonlight), and added the stars from the embellishment pack.
Also, I added crystal effects to the bow on the wreath, as well as the top section of the green house’s door. This always helps in highlighting some sections of your card and give some dimension.
To finish the card, I added a bow around the top panel, and a sentiment from the designer series paper. And if you see closely, you can see I added a few snowflakes to the snow portion of this card.
