Merry & Bright – Stitched With Cheer

Today is the last day for my Paper Pumpkin Upgrade and nearly the beginning of my November Thankful Challenge.  See more details about both below.

Now on to today’s card…

I’m participating in the  Freshly Made Sketches  challenge this week.

fms-final-260-001

I used Crumb Cake as my base and stamped in Crumb Cake the splattered stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the cardstock.

christmas-wreath-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out two circles from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi to create my wreath.  I stamped the Merry & Bright sentiment from the Stitched with Cheer and cut it out with the Banners for You Framelits.

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

I stamped and cut out two pinecones, one using Gold Foil Trim.  The other one I stamped on Crumb Cake first in Soft Suede and then in Versamark so I could heat emboss in white.  I purposefully didn’t use the Embossing Buddy because I was hoping to get little speckles on the pinecone.  I added a Real Red to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Christmas Pines – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s card is one I created for this month’s Make & Take Party.  Each month I do a “stamp of the month” Make & Take party.  This month the four cards were based on the Christmas Pines Bundle – My favorite!

What’s great about this card is that it uses very little supplies and can be adapted to any color combination you have on hand!

On the Always Artichoke I stamped the Noel from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Always Artichoke to give it a watermark effect.

christmas-pines-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie  I used the Triple Banner Punch to cut out a 2″ banner in the Gold Foil Sheet to place at the top right corner of the card.

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

I then cut out some branches in the three sizes from the Pretty Pines Thinlits (included in the Christmas Pines Bundle which saves you 10%) in Always Artichoke, Garden Green, and Pear Pizzazz.

I cut out two pinecones in Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand and tied a Gold bow around the top of them all.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Thank You

untitled

Welcome to this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  This week we bring you a sketch challenge.

14034916_10210533686806718_1855166362000077661_n

For today’s card I use Basic Black as my base and layer it with Cherry Cobbler.  I took a pattern from the Warmth & Cheer DSP and I sponged Basic Black ink on the edge of it.  I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to stamp some black speckles in the one corner.

thank-you-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out Garden Green label using the Decorative Label Punch and also sponged the edge of it in Basic Black.  I then stamped the tree in Garden Green from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set and layered it over the label.

thank-you-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

The sentiment comes from the One Big Meaning stamp set (which I covered the bottom part of in washi tape so I just had the words Thank You) and was heat embossed in white on Basic Black cardstock.  Before adhering it with dimensionals, I added some Basic Black Baker’s Twine underneath it.

Enjoy!

Hello My Friend – Jar Of Love

I had a lot of fun with today’s card.  Whenever a friend calls and I answer the phone, I usually say “Hello My Friend.”  It’s just what I say.  At this point it would be weird saying anything else.  So, it’s what inspired me for today’s card.

My card today uses Wild Wasabi as a base and layers it with Very Vanilla.  I then used a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP to layer over that.  I cut two strips of banners, in Soft Sky (1-1/2″) and Wild Wasabi (2″) using the Triple Banner Punch.

jar-of-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieI next created my jar and fish.  I stamped the jar in Wild Wasabi using the Jar of Love stamp set and stamped the water in Soft Sky.  I then stamped the little goldfish in Pumpkin Pie.  The bundle is great because it makes cutting them out a synch with the coordinating framelits.

jar-of-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly, I created my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet.  This wasn’t a stamp set I bought right away, but I found myself wanting to use certain sentiments which didn’t exist and wanted to create my own.

A little Labeler Alphabet hint (which may seem obvious to everyone else), but you can’t just take the letters and line them up to create a word.  You really have to stamp letter by letter.

My letters were stamped in Pumpkin Pie and I added a few Enamel Dots in Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky and I placed them over a backdrop of Vellum.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenges over at What Will You Stamp and Global Design Project.

Free Upgrade From Me – Paper Pumpkin

137859g

Now through October 31st, sign up to receive Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin and receive a FREE block upgrade from me!*

What is Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is a crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. Each box includes everything you need to make a stunning project.  Projects aer a surprise and can be anything from cards, gift packaging, or even home décor.

With Paper Pumpkin, you’ll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you’ll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won’t repeat a color in a 12-month period).

Your first Paper Pumpkin comes with a D block.  However, this block is thin which makes it hard to hold on to and has a sharp edge.

img_0062

The upgraded D Block (valued at $8.50) is much more user friendly, is thicker (easier to hold), and has soft edges.

118485g

This is an upgrade I am offering through Stamp It Up With Jaimie, so please follow this link to sign up so you can receive the free block.

There is no commitment required and you are welcome to cancel your subscription after you receive November’s order.

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Card

Today’s card is inspired by the challenges over at Sunday Stamps and the Color Throwdown.

ssc138swatch415My card uses Chocolate Chip as my base and I layered it with Sahara Sand.  To the right of the card, I used a pattern from the Petals & Paisleys.  I placed a piece of Whisper White to the left on the card and covered the seam with Mint Macaron ribbon.

sympathy-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the Number of Years stamp set to create two bundles of flowers on the top and bottom of the Whisper White.  I stamped the stems in Chocolate Chip and the other flowers in Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand.

The sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set (need some good sentiments – this is the stamp set for you) and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler over the same cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Warmth & Cheer

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

fms259

I recently purchased the Warmth & Cheer DSP and it has immediately become my favorite paper to use (you’ll see it a couple of times this week).  I love each pattern.  They make me feel warm and cozy, like I should be drinking hot cocoa when using them.

My card uses the Delightful Dijon as a base and then one of the cozy patterns from the Warmth & Cheer DSP over it.  I took another pattern (this one Whisper White and Delightful Dijon) to layer over it and then a strip of Garden Green.

santas-sleigh-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I created the layering in the middle using the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set which I stamped the deer stamp in Versamark and then heat embossed it in white on Basic Black to make it really pop!  The deer got cut using the Laying Circles and was adhered over scalloped Delightful Dijon cardstock and then that over a Delicate Doily.

santas-sleigh-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

To finish off the card, I heat embossed in white over Garden Green the sentiment, also from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.

Enjoy!

Neutral Totally Trees

The inspiration for today’s neutral-colored card is the challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

ssc137f

I used the Totally Trees stamp set and all the brown-toned neutral colors.

I start with Chocolate Chip as my base color and layered it with Sahara Sand and then Whisper White.  I then stamped the tree stamps from Totally Trees in the darker toned inks and the leaves in the light toned inks.

totally-trees-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

For the sentiment I put down a strip of the burlap and then heat embossed the sentiment on Soft Suede in white to layer over the burlap.

Enjoy!

P.S. – At my last Stamp Party we were talking about how challenging masculine cards can be.  This card would be a great one!

Hang Your Stocking – Fireplace

untitled

Welcome to this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Today we have a great color challenge for you.

14100301_10210533903652139_5969113326752697811_n

My card for today uses the Emerald Envy as its base and then is layered with Whisper White and Mint Macaron.  To the bottom of the Mint Macaron I cut out the Noel using the Noel Thinlit from the Hang Your Stocking Bundle and replaced it with the same Noel, this time in Cherry Cobbler.

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

I then cut out a Whisper White fireplace from the Hearth & Home Framlit and sponged around the edge of it some Smoky Slate.  I cut out a piece of Smoky Slate to put as the background to the fireplace.

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

Next I stamped and cut out three stockings using the Hang Your Stocking Bungle in Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, and Cherry Cobbler and added a coordinating paper bow to each.

Enjoy!
