Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love

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

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and embossed it using the Holly embossing folder and adhered it to the card.

I then cut out a 2″ pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and used the Triple Banner Punch to cut each end.  I adhered over the banner a gold Foil Snowflake.

Next I created my tag using the Labels to Love stamp set and Everyday Label Punch.  I colored the stamp in with write markers (Real Red, Garden Green, and Basic Black).

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe

Today’s card is inspired by challenges this week at Global Design Project and What Will You Stamp.

My card today starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut out a Whisper White circle and then cut off the edge of it a bit.

I cut out a pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered it on the card.  I then used the leaf stamp from the Merry Café stamp set and Crumb Cake ink and stamped rolling leaves across the Crumb Cake cardstock.  I first stamped the leaves all across the Crumb Cake cardstock and then adhered the stitched circle, lined up the leaf, and stamped across the Whisper White circle.

I then created my cup of apple cider using the Merry Café stamp set and the coordinating Coffee Cups framelits.  I stamped the cup in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on it.  I then cut out the cup holder from Real Red cardstock and the lid from Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Thinking of You – Pick a Pumpkin

Today’s card is the second card (this is the first) we made at my Holiday Catalog party.  If you live in the Upstate New York area, I’d love to have you join me for any of my parties.  Check out my Facebook page to see a list of all my upcoming parties.

My card today starts with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP and mounted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and on it stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Tangerine Tango ink.  I mounted it on Tangerine Tango cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the pumpkins from the Pick A Pumpkin stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and Crushed Curry inks.  I cut them out, as well as the die cut pumpkin (Gold foil sheet) using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home

Are you sick of me saying I’m so excited for today’s card?!

Because I am so excited for today’s card!!

Last Friday I had my Holiday Catalog party.  We played some games, won some door prizes, and we also made two cards.  I decided to make the cards a little more labor intensive than I normally would.

My rule of thumb for my parties is I never design a card that I wouldn’t myself proudly send.  But even these 2 cards had more details than usual.  We had plenty of time so we took it step by step and everyone’s cards came out great!

So for this first card (second one will be posted tomorrow) I used the Hearts Come Home Bundle.  I start out with Night of Navy cardstock.  After rubbing the spot to be stamped on with an Embossing Buddy, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the edgelit with church from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits to cut out the scene.  I took the edgelit with the houses and lined it up as best I could and cut out the extra house.  I then took the Softly Falling embossing folder and embossed only the bottom of the scene.

Next I took some scrap pieces of So Saffron cardstock and cut them to fit behind the buildings.  I then ran through the same edgelit as was used before (with the church) with Always Artichoke cardstock and then cut off the trees and glued them on the white trees.

Don’t forget to check out my Facebook page tomorrow to see exactly how I made this card.  If you miss it, the video will stay posted!

Enjoy!

I went ahead and made a Facebook Live video showing how to make this card.  It’s only my second one I’ve ever made and there are a few glitches and it’s very “real”.

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

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Home Decor

Friday night I had my Holiday Catalog Party!  We had so much fun, lots of laughs.

We made two cards (which will be featured on my blog this coming week), played a few games, and I also had door prizes for everyone.  Among the goodies I had Designer Series Paper, embellishments, a few of my homemade cards, and I also created a cute tag for a pumpkin.

I loved it so much I almost didn’t include it in the prizes as I wanted to keep it myself.

I figured I’m probably not the only one who would like one and have decided to sell them.  I love this idea for teachers, neighbors, family, or just to add to your fall decoration.

If you are local (Upstate New York and can pick up) the pumpkin and tag is $6 and if you need it shipped, the cost of the tag is $5 – I’ll cover shipping. 😉  Payment will be received through PayPal.

If you’d like one, please fill out the form below and I’ll be in contact with you.

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin

My card today starts off with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took two panels of a pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP, mounted them on Tangerine Tango cardstock, and adhered them over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.

I took another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and mounted it on Gold cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Old Olive ink on the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added a Tangerine Tango and Gold enamel dot in the upper left hand corner.

I then used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle to create my focal point.  I stamped the pumpkins/gourd/leaves in Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive inks.  Hands down my favorite piece to this bundle is the die cut pumpkin (Gold cardstock) and curly stems (Old Olive).

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Night

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

My card today starts with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then took another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, which I then layered on a pattern from the Spooky Night DSP.

I stamped the sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set in Archival Black ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I cut it out using the Everyday Label punch and adhered it to the card.

I then fussy cut out a bunch of pumpkins from the Spooky Night DSP using Paper snips and then organized them around the card.  I also cut out some leaves from Basic Black cardstock and Vellum paper using the Leaf Punch and adhered them under some pumpkins.  Lastly, I wrapped around some Basic Black Baker’s Twine in a bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings

I. Am. Obsessed. with the Count My Blessings stamp set.

I created a card this past Friday using this beautiful stamp set and then went for it again for this week’s Global Design Project.

My card today is a CAS (clean and simple) card.  I went back and forth with adding DSP or more embellishments or stamping more flowers around the sentiment, but I love that sentiment so much – such a great font and who wouldn’t want to receive it in the mail – that I left it clean and simple.

I start with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a panel of Burlap Ribbon, Copper Trim, and Linen Thread and wrapped them around the card front.

I next stamped the sentiment on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Tangerine Tango ink, which (after being stamped on) got matted on a panel of Tangerine Tango cardstock.

I stamped the flower twice in Archival Black ink.  Then using a blender pen I colored them in using Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and Lemon Lime twist inks.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Class Thank You

I try to give a little something extra to say thank you for my stamp party attendees.  It’s not always a card, sometimes it’s a treat or a special ordering deal.

When I do a card, I write my message on a Post-It so the recipient can reuse it.

If you are in the Upstate New York area, I’d love to have you attend one of my parties.  You can check them out on my Facebook page.  I am SO excited for my Holiday Catalog Party next Friday – can we say ladies night out!!

Back to my card for today…

My card starts with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took a panel of Tranquil Tide cardstock which I clipped the end to be a banner.  I then dry embossed it using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  I then took a pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and clipped the end to be a banner and layered it over the Tranquil Tide.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on Pool Party cardstock.  I cut it out and the scalloped circles (Tangerine Tango and Basic Black cardstock) using the Layering Circles framelits.

I doubled up a piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine and tied a bow to finish it off.

Enjoy!

My cards were inspired by this week’s Fusion challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Labels

Being that I’m offering two special bundles right now (see below), I wanted to use the Merry Little Labels stamp set today.

This is a fun set that is great for holiday tags, but can easily be used for cards as well.

My card today starts off with Basic Gray cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Year of Cheer DSP and mounted it on the gorgeous Champagne cardstock.  I really wish my lighting did this paper justice because it’s absolutely beautiful!!!

Next I took a panel of Silver cardstock and stamped the “Let It Snow” image in Versamark from the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  I then sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Note:  I normally hold the paper when I heat emboss, but for this I put the paper on a heat-safe surface and heated it, that way the paper didn’t curl.

I cut the sentiment out using the Everyday Label punch.

I adhered a Silver foil snowflake to the card front (to go under the sentiment).  I thought the card needed a hint of color, so I added a Soft Sky banner and then adhered the label using Stampin’ dimensionals.

Enjoy!

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