NEW Sale-a-bration – Tasty Trucks

untitled

This week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.

14088475_10210533701207078_5690154385464549913_n

For the layout, I decided to flip the sketch on its side.  I used Sweet Sugarplum cardstock as my base and layered it with some Watercolor Paper.  On the top of the Watercolor Paper, I cut a strip of the Falling in Love DSP.

Next I stamped the food truck from the Tasty Trucks stamp set in Archival Black Ink and watercolored it in using an aqua painter and the inks Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, and Sahara Sand.  I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner in Sweet Sugarplum.

Lastly I cut out a variety of sized circles using the Layering Circles Framelits (Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, and Soft Sky) and stamped in the same color the banner from the Tasty Treats Stamp Set (available for order January 4, 2017).  Enjoy!

NEW Lift Me Up Cards – Part 2

Yesterday I previewed two of the cards we’re making at my December Make & Take party this week and today I’m showing you the other two.  If you missed yesterday’s cards, you can see them here.

As I said yesterday, I’m IN-LOVE with the Lift Me Up Bundle and coordinating FREE Carried Away DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  They had me with all the great sentiments!!

For my first card, I use Night of Navy as my base.  I then layered a pattern from the Carried Away DSP (Sale-a-bration item) over some Whisper White.  I created the hot air balloon by cutting the balloon out in Night of Navy and the different background pieces in Smoky Slate.

I then created a banner using Mint Macaron cardstock and stamped the sentiment (cute, right?!) in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.

carried-away-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-upMy second card comes right out of the Occasions Catalog (which is a great source of inspiration).  The base for my card is Basic Gray which is layered with some Soft Sky.  I then created my balloon using Smoky Slate for the balloon and Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White for the background pieces.

I cut out a few Whisper White clouds (one adhered using a dimensional) and then stamped the sentiment in Archival Basic Gray.

Enjoy!

NEW Lift Me Up Cards

By far, hands down, my favorite stamp set from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is the Jar of Love Bundle.  I love the sentiments full of cute puns and how it offers so many options for a variety of occasions.

However, I have a NEW love…the Lift Me Up Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalog.    The sentiment includes GREAT sentiments and cute designs and the matching thinlits offer easy cutting for matching shapes!!  A great bonus – there’s FREE matching Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I am featuring this bundle in my December Make & Take party.

I will feature two of those cards today and two tomorrow.

My first card uses Smoky Slate as its base.  I then layer some Whisper White cardstock over some Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  On the Whisper White, I used the Lift Me Up stamp set to stamp a few balloons in Peekaboo Peach, Night of Navy, and Watermelon Wonder.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then adhered a pattern from the Carried Away DSP (Sale-a-bration item) over the Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy over it.

For my second card, I use Thick Whisper White cardstock as my base.  I layered a pattern from the Carried Away DSP on Watermelon Wonder cardstock over the Whisper White.  I cut out two balloons in Night of Navy and Smoky Slate using the Up & Away Thinlits and adhered them using dimensionals.

lift-me-up-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out two clouds to layer over the balloons.  I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder, cut one end in a banner, and curled both ends to give it a flowy look.

Aren’t they the best sentiments!!!

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Joy

I have joy on my mind lately.  I heard the best talk on joy last Thursday at my church’s MOMs group.  You know, joy, not to be confused with the emotional roller coaster happiness.

It left me encouraged, challenged, and ready to sink myself into the Christmas season with joy.

So no challenge inspiration today…We’ll call this a word inspiration.

Joy.

My card uses Cherry Cobbler as its base.  I then took some Garden Green cardstock and used the Large Letters Framelits to cut out the letters to spell Joy.

christmas-joy-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then cut a pattern from the This Christmas DSP to place under the Joy.  I cut another pattern to make a banner under the Joy.

christmas-joy-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Then to add some embellishment I cut out some holly and berries using the Hang Your Stocking Bundle.  I added some Linen Thread underneath the one holly detail.

Enjoy!

Embossed Hang Your Stocking Card

My card today was inspired by the embossing challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper this week.

My card starts off with Real Red and is layered with a diagonal pattern from the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  I then layered another smaller “heart” pattern matted on Real Red over that.

hang-your-stocking-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I cut a banner in Whisper White of 1-1/2″ and heat embossed in gold to the right the sentiment Merry Christmas from the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set.

hang-your-stocking-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

To create my stocking I cut out a Real Red stocking from the Christmas Stockings Thinlits (10% off in bundle).  I then stamped in Versamark and sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder the top, heel, and toe of the stocking and cut them out using the same thinlits.

I cut out the snowflake in Gold Foil (from a detail in another stocking) and adhered some wound up Gold Thread behind it to decorate the stocking.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Here’s To Cheer

Today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop is a color challenge.

14064032_10210533913652389_2223073235227761822_n

For my card today I’m celebrating!  I started off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut out some Soft Sky cardstock and dry embossed it using the Softly Falling TIEF.  I then cut the cardstock starting thick and progressively getting thinner.

heres-to-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the sentiment from the Here’s to Cheer Stamp Set in Sweet Sugarplum and cut it out and a scalloped circle underneath it using the Layering Circles Framelits.  Underneath it I layered a banner of Whisper White, some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon, and a strip of Soft Sky cardstock.

heres-to-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly, I stamped the bottle/glass stamp in Versamark on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder.  To finish it off I added some White Sequins around the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Ugly Sweater Card

Recently my upline held a little fun challenge for her downlines, ready… An ugly sweater challenge.  How fun, right?!

You’d think making an ugly sweater card would be easy, but it ironically was challenging.  Making something ugly goes against everything I try to do.

So here we go.

Ugly sweater #1:
