Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home

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

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and dry embossed it using the Cable Knit embossing folder and then matted it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

I then cut out three Whisper White squares using the Stitched Framelits.  I used the Hearts Come Home stamp set and stamped the houses (two Cherry Cobbler and one Memento Black) and the trees (Old Olive) on the squares.  I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out scalloped squares for the stitched squares to be matted on.  I adhered them to the card and wrapped around it a Cherry Cobbler ribbon knot.

Lastly, I took the sentiment from the Hearts Come Home sentiment and sort of straightened it out on a D block as the sentiment is naturally curved, but I wanted it straight.  I cut it out and added a thin Cherry Cobbler banner underneath it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Part 2

Today is Part 2 of featuring the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.

I am in love with all the shiny paper, delicate details, and the great sentiments.  To see Part 1 from yesterday, go here.

Here’s a picture of all four cards together.

Today’s first card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a panel of Gold Foil Sheet and I wiped it with the Embossing Buddy.  This is key, especially when using darker cardstock to avoid get speckles everywhere.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

I cut out the snowflake detail from Champagne Foil Sheet using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits.  I cut out the part underneath the snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered this over the Gold and added a few Gold Enamel Dots.

My second card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wiped the front with the Embossing Buddy. I stamped the snowflake image all across it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

I cut out the circle from the Year of Cheer DSP using the Stitched Framelits and then the scalloped Gold circle behind it using the Layering Circles Framelits.

I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I added half a gold doily underneath it and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Enamel Shapes to the left.

Enjoy!

Fourthly, and let’s face it, the real reason why you’re here, today’s card.

Today’s card is a Part 1 of 2 showcasing the beautiful Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.  This is a new set to me and I was so inspired by it!!

Here are today’s two cards that are being featured.  Come back tomorrow to see the other two cards.

All four cards feature the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle, Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, Silver and Gold embossing powder, and Silver, Gold, and Champagne Foil Sheets.

The first card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I first cut out the snowflake detail using Whisper White cardstock and then cut out the beautiful champagne foil sheet behind it using the die cuts from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits.  I love how these two images layer on one another.

I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock after rubbing it with the Embossing Buddy.  I have found that the Embossing Buddy is an absolute must when using these darker powders.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.

I added a snowflake and little swirls which were cut out from Gold and Champagne Foil Sheet.  Finally I added a few Gold Enamel Circles to the card.

For the second card, I again started out with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  This time I adhered over it a pattern from the Year of Cheer DSP.  I then stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, after wiping it with the Embossing Buddy, and then sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder heat embossed it.  I matted this panel over Silver Foil cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I cut out the long line of snowflakes from Silver Foil Sheet and then snipped off two of them.  I adhered them and two silver swirlies around the snetiment.  I added two Silver Enamel Dots to the center of the snowflakes and added some rhinestones around the sentiment.

Enjoy and be sure to come back tomorrow to check out what else I created using these amazing products!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells Christmas

Has anyone had snow yet?!

I live in Upstate New York, but we haven’t had any snow yet.  I know some people hate snow, but if I’m going to have the cold, it might as well look pretty.

So for now, no snow in sight.  Hopefully soon!

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it on Silver Foil cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I used the Layering Squares framelits and cut out three Pool Party squares and three Silver Foil scalloped squares for which to show off my snowflakes.  I cut the snowflakes out of Whisper White cardstock using the Seasonal Layers thinlits and adhered them using liquid glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Seasonal Bells stamp set and Pool Party ink.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy and here’s to some snow real soon!

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

Stampin’ Up! Thank You

Before we head into today’s blog hop, I just want to say a very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

I am one blessed lady and feeling abundantly grateful today and always!

I hope you have a wonderful day today with your loved ones.

I’ll be hosting at my house which I love.  There’s just something about that beautiful smell of turkey in the oven, the sound of the football game in the background (go Cowboys!), and lots of laughs with good friends and beloved family.

I hope you too have a great day!!!

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

My card today starts with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then layered it with a pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP.

Next I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and used the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set to stamp the various sentiments across the front of it in Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, and Early Espresso ink.

I matted the Very Vanilla cardstock on Garden Green cardstock and finally added a Linen Thread bow at the top of it.

Enjoy!

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!

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!

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!
