Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas

On December 2nd, I’ll be hosting an Open House from 1:00 to 3:30.  I will have all my stamps and die cuts out for you to use for your projects.

You bring any necessary paper and adhesive.

If you wish to create pre-designed cards, I will have available the Watercolor Christmas stamp set and any necessary inks to put together the Watercolor Christmas card kit.

The kit makes 20 cards and includes any necessary embellishments and envelopes.  To purchase your kit, click here.

My card today uses the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.

I start out with Emerald Envy cardstock and layered over it a panel of Shimmery Whisper White cardstock.  At the bottom I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Real Red ink.

I stamped the three Christmas tree images from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Archival Black ink on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock.  I then colored them in using an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy, Real Red, and Flirty Flamingo ink.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut each tree out and then matted them on a Basic Black scalloped square and then on the coordinating cardstock color square.  I added a Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine bow at the bottom.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings – Freshly Made Sketches

Happy Thanksgiving week!  I am super excited as Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday!

It’s all about quality time with friends and family around yummy food!

Do you host?  Are you traveling?  Whatever your plans, I hope you have not only a great day, but a great week!

Now on to why you’re here…

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

My card today starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the middle using Pumpkin Pie ink from the Count My Blessings stamp set.

Next I stamped the acorn and leaf images in Memento Black ink in the two corners.  I colored them in using the Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends.

I mounted the Whisper White cardstock on some Crumb Cake cardstock.  I tied around some Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then tied a Crushed Curry bow around the knot.  I adhered the Whisper White/Crumb Cake panel using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Inspire.Create.Challenges.

I cannot get enough of this beautiful Night in Bethlehem Bundle!  It is just so beautiful!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  Next I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhered over it a pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP.

On the bottom part of the Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black ink.  I then cut out the two scenes from Gold Foil Sheet using the Bethlehem Edgelits.  I adhered the larger one right on the DSP and adhered the smaller one in the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped Mary and Joseph in Archival Black ink on Whisper White, cut them out using the Bethelehm Edgelits, and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered them to the left even though the sketch has that detail on the right…Figured Mary and Joseph should be walking into Bethlehem 😉

Enjoy!

Stamparatus Pre-Order Almost Live!

The Stamparatus was already such a success that this pre-order session sold out within 18 minutes – CRAZY!  If you didn’t get to order one, the next pre-order window opens December 5th!

The Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus reservations will be opening soon and they’ll be open until the supply is depleted.  So head over to my online store beginning at 2:00 PM MT today to reserve yours!  Just log into your account and then click on the button on the online store home page to start the reservation process.

And if you miss out on this round, don’t worry, there will be another reservation period starting on December 5!

A few of you have asked questions about adding a host code to the reservation.  Since the order will not be generated and you will not be charged for the Stamparatus until February, you won’t be able to add the host code until then.  This is how the ordering process will work:

  • After you get your tool reserved, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! confirming your reservation.
  • You will get an email from Stampin’ Up! in early February letting you know that an item has been added to your shopping basket.
  • At that point, you can log into your Stampin’ Up! account in my online store and you will find the Stamparatus in your shopping bag.
  • You can add other items to your order at that time if you’d like and add a host code to it before submitting the order.  So the checkout process will work just like it always does.  You can add a host code and your payment information at the time of checkout.

Here is a quick tutorial for the reservation process:

SPECIAL DEAL DURING ORDER PERIOD NOV 16-30

Pre-order your Stamparatus between November 16 to 30 and I’ll throw in a free Ink Pad of your choice.  Use host code XCEB7YRA at checkout and shoot me an e-mail letting me know what ink pad you’d like: stampinjaimie@gmail.com

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

For today’s card I thought I would take Christmas colors and make a non-Christmas card.

I haven’t used the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating framelits in a while and I forgot how much fun they are!!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took the two larger cloud framelits and cut out clouds from the Pool Party.  I adhered a panel of Whisper White cardstock behind the clouds.

Next I stamped out different balloons in Real Red, Emerald Envy, and Pool Party ink and cut them out using the Up & Away Framelits.  I arranged them in different spots along the left side of the card.

I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine in a bow.  Next I stamped the birthday sentiment in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White.  I cut the two lines apart and attached them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered behind the birthday sentiment a piece of a white doily.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Christmas Card

Happy Wednesday!!  Can you believe we’re almost a week away from Thanksgiving?!

I love it…it’s my favorite holiday.  With it comes a lot of sales and special promotions that Stampin’ Up! is offering, as well as deals I personally am offering.

Have you signed up for my newsletter?  My newsletter goes out every Tuesday evening and fills you in on all the newest information and promotions that Stampin’ Up! has.  I also let you know of any classes I’m running, as well as any special deals I have going on.

My customers got some BIG news yesterday!  I’ll be posting it here on my blog later this week.   To sign up for my newsletter, click on the button below.

My card today is a clean, simple Christmas card.  I start off with Garden Green cardstock.  I then took a smaller panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to adhere over that.  I took a smaller panel of a pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and layered it on the bottom part of the Lemon Lime cardstock.

Next I took the pattern from the Quilted Christmas that had all the triangle patterns and fussy cut out five of them.  I then cut 1/8″ small strips of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to make “tree trunks” for the triangles.  I adhered them around the top part of the card.

I then tied around a Linen Thread bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Care stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Soft Sky banner.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.  Enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created!

My card today starts with Real Red cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle.  I then took a Basic Black panel and traced where the circle would be and cut out a circle from it.

I used the Hometown Greetings Edgelits and cut out the scene from Gold cardstock.  I first adhered a panel of Garden Green cardstock on the card front where I knew the circle would cover.  Then I adhered the gold scene over it.  I adhered the DSP with the circle over the scene using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I pulled the little steeple out to poke out of the circle.

I wrapped around some Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon and tied a bow.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut the ends using the Everyday Label Punch.

Enjoy!
