Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem Sneak Peek

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

I am so excited about today’s card.  It was a labor of love using the NEW Night of Bethlehem Bundle (available September 1st).

My card starts off with a panel of Night of Navy cardstock.  I used a sponger and Craft Ink and dabbed the ink in the middle of the card.  I did this a bunch of times as the paper really absorbs the ink.  I then matted this on Silver cardstock and wound some Silver Thread around the side of it before adhering it to the Basic Black card front.

Next I used the coordinating Bethlehem Edgelits to cut out a scene in Silver cardstock and Basic Black cardstock. I trimmed them down and adhered them to the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Wreath

Today’s card is a combination of both carrying over product from last year’s Holiday Catalog and brand new product from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

My card starts off with Garden Green cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and matted it on Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhered them to the card.

Next I used the NEW Painted Autumn Bundle (stamp set & punch) to create my wreath. I stamped the leaf a bunch of times in Garden Green ink, as well as Tranquil Tide ink.  I then adhered them in a circle to create a wreath.

I used the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and coordinating Christmas Stocking thinlits to stamp and cut out a bunch of red hollies to place around the wreath.  I then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and matted it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Lit Christmas Sneak Peek

My card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Sunday Stamps.

My card today features the NEW and gorgeous Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle available beginning September 1st!

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the lamp post from the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle in Memento Black ink.  I purposefully cut off part of the bottom of the lamp post for it to fit better on my card (and I liked how it looked).  I filled in the light with a Daffodil Delight marker.  I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink and cut it out using the Christmas Lampost thinlits.  I stamped the outside of the bow in Memento Black ink and then the inside using Real Red ink and cut it out with the same thinlits.

I cut out a circle using a pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP and the Layering Circles Framelits.  Lastly I stamped two presents using Real Red ink and Memento Black ink.

Enjoy!

Special Occasions – Happy Birthday

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenges over at Global Design Project and CAS(E) this Sketch!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set to create my pattern with Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Flirty Flamingo inks.  I then matted it on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I really enjoyed the ribbon effect I used in my card the other day, that I decided to do it again. I put some Tear & Tape adhesive down first and then sort of folded the Bermuda Bay ribbon over itself on it.

I stamped the bigger image from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set (first stamping off first) in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp in Night of Navy ink.  I cut it out using the Stitched Framelits and mounted it on a scalloped Bermuda Bay circle cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I adhered the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens

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

My card today features the NEW Smitten Mittens Bundle from the 2017 Holiday Catalog (available September 1st).

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I first used one of the embossing framelits (meant to create a pattern on a cut out mitten) to create a pattern along the bottom of my card.  I also stamped the snowflake from Smitten Mittens stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed them.

I used the matching Many Mittens Framelits to cut out the one mitten from Soft Sky cardstock.  I chose to leave the different cutout pieces in it when I adhered it to the card.

Next I stamped the mitten with the sentiment on it in Soft Sky ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! For You – Jar Of Love

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

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock which I adhered a panel of Whisper White cardstock over.  I took a pattern from the Pick A Pattern DSP.  I cut two 1″ banners of and adhered them unevenly on the card.

I stamped the middle sized jar from the Jar of Love stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and then heat embossed.  I cut it out using the Everday Jars framelits.  I wrapped around some Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine around the top of it.

I first stamped the two flowers, stamping off first, in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower in full strength Flirty Flamingo.  I added a strip of Flirty Flamingo Grosgrain Ribbon over the jar and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

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

Painted Autumn Sunflower Card

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at Fab Friday.

My card today was a labor of love.  I’m not a huge fussy cutter, but with the gorgeous printed sunflowers on a pattern in the NEW Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available September 1st), I had to get my paper snips out!

My card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I took a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Before adhering it to the card, I adhered a doily behind it.

I took the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and fussy cut out one of the sunflowers.  I added a strip of Tear & Tape adhesive to the Early Espresso cardstock where the sunflower would go and added a strip burlap and mini gold sequins.  I adhered the sunflower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Night in Bethlehem Card

For today’s card I decided to CASE (copy and selectively edit) another designer’s card from the Global Design Project challenge this week.  I chose Jessica Williams the other day.

This time I chose Shawn de Oliveira.  I was so inspired by her card, but decided to flip what part got heat embossed and what part got dry embossed.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I took the pine bough from the NEW Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I did this twice, both at the top and bottom of the card.

I then took a panel of Fresh Fig cardstock and dry embossed it using the new and gorgeous Winter Wonder TIEF.  I matted this on a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out and mounted it on a scalloped oval of Silver Foil Sheet using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I folded over a piece Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon underneath it and also added a banner of Fresh Fig cardstock.

Enjoy!
