It's that time again…. time to make Christmas cards! I spend HOURS on Pinterest looking for cute designs to either CASE (copy and steal everything) or just use for inspiration. I am not sure what I did before Pinterest came around. But I decided to curate the 14 awesome DYI Christmas card ideas for you!
Some of these designs are mine, but most of them are from my fellow creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators! I love the Stampin' Up! community. Everyone is so generous with their creativity. Be sure to check out my friend's blog by clicking through to see more details on their cards.

Let's Check Out the Cards
Brandi Mahon ~ www.StampMeSomeLove.com
Of course I couldn't create a top 15 list without including one of my own Christmas Cards. This card looks like it has a lot going on but it is actually quite simple. I featured the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard stamp set. You can get the video tutorial and all of the dimensions to this card by hoping over to this blog post.
Darla Olson ~ inkheaven.com
I love this card! Darla used the Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer stamp set. She also used a new color, Merry Merlot; that I haven't had a chance to play with but it is the perfect color for Christmas cards! What do you think? You can find this card on Darla's blog here.
Jenn Peterson ~ jenniferpetersen.wordpress.com
This card that Jenn created is so cute yet so simple. She featured the Wishing You Well stamp set. That sheer fabric bow stamp is adorbs! I also love how she used the Country Lane Desinger Series Paper that looks like wood grain. With her card it sorta looks a wreath hung on a door. Check out Jenn's blog post to get more details.
Nicolle Belesimo ~ ellocindesigns.com
Here is another perfect example of how simpler is better! I love how Nicole the negative image on your cardstock and put the Country Lane Desinger Series Paper behind the cut out. And of course the tried and true color combination of Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler for Christmas. Check out Nicolle's blog post on this card here.
Claire Daly ~ clairedaly.typad.com
Claire is using a stampset that I haven't gotten my hands on yet. She is featuring the Peaceful Noel Bundle stampset with coordinating sprig punch. This sprig punch as so many uses! I've seen it used to make reindeer antleers! So cute! Don't forget to check out Claire blog post here to get more info on this beautiful card.
Verity Pursglove ~ inkybutterfly.wordpress.com
Anyone who has been around my blog or facebook lately knows how much I LOVE Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Blizzard stampset. Just check out the card I posted here to know how much I love this set. I love what Verity did with this card. I love how she has used the rule of thirds to bring your eye to the stamped image and sentiment. This beautiful arrangement gives plenty of white space to get your eye a rest! Well done Verity! Get more info on her blog post.
Brandi Mahon ~ www.StampMeSomeLove.com
This is another one of my favorite stampsets from this year's Holiday Catalog. I have created a few cards from the Making Christmas Bright stamp sets. I also love the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper. Using up scrap DSP in the inside added a final touch. So cute! You can get more info about how I used the Stamparatus to create multiple cards of this design. Saving me tons of time!
Jill Chapman ~ www.paperdaisycrafting.co.uk
Here is another beautiful card using Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard. I love how Jill used a sponging technique to get the pretty blue color in the middle. It gives it a distressed look! Check out more details on how to make this card on Jill's blog post.
Leah Dixon ~ thestampinpad.blogspot.com
I love using not traditional colors with Christmas cards. Leah really hit it on the mark with this beautiful card. And I adore the Swirls and Curls Textured embossing folder she used for the background. Check leah's blog out for more details.
Margriet Toumier ~ www.bijmargriet.com
Cheri Stojkovich ~ www.stampinonline.com
I can't believe I have not purchased the Buffalo Check background stampset that Cheri is featuring with this card. I have seen so many super cute cards with this background set that I think this card has just sent me over. It will definitely have to be on my next order! Check out all of the details about this card on Cheri's blog.
Deanne Ferrell ~ deannefarrell.weebly.com
And here we have those cute reindeers from the Dashing Deer Bundle stampset and coordinating framelits. I love how she used the coordinating Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. Just too cute! Catch her blog post for more details.
And last but not least! I have to end this blog post with one of my own.
This card is so bright and cherry and I love that! I used the Poppy Parade with Whisper White and the Basic Grey. The Making Christmas Bright stampset and coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch were featured as well as Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper.
