Stampin’ Up! Making Christmas Bright Christmas Card

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

My card starts off with a Coastal Cabana which I layered with a pattern from the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Real Red cardstock.  On it I stamped the circle from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  Behind it I offset a piece of Silver Foil.

I stamped the light bulbs in Shaded Spruce, Real Red, and Coastal Cabana ink.  I cut them out and the silver holders using the Christmas Bulb Punch.

I strung a piece of Real Red Curly Ribbon and adhered the bulbs over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Snow Front Thank You Card

I love the Snow Front Stamp Set so much because as ideal as it is for Christmas cards, it is great for all occasion cards as well!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I cut out a Whisper White circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and used the Snow Front Stamp Set to create my scene using Mossy Meadow (trees), Gray Granite (mountain), Balmy Blue (lake), Crumb Cake (deer) ink.

I cut out a scalloped circle from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Versamark in on Balmy Blue cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a Mossy Meadow touch under the sentiment and lastly, I added a Linen Thread bow.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Super Quick and Simple Christmas Card

I have a super, ridiculously quick and simple Christmas card for you.

What I love most about Designer Series Paper…you can use it predominantly on a card and not need a whole lot of anything else.

And when life gets super busy, it’s what I use to make a simple and quick card.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and matted it on Old Olive cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Old Olive cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

That’s it…easy peasy.  Two cardstock colors, one Designer Series Paper, one stamp set, and some heat embossing.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card Beautiful Friendship

Every week for the month of October I’ve been giving my team a sketch and color challenge.  They can use them individually or in the same project.

I took a break from Christmas cards today and used the challenges to make a birthday card.

My card starts off with Terracotta Tile cardstock, on which I adhered a Terracotta Tile pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile ink and leaves in Mint Macaron.  I then matted this on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in parts so that it would fit on a long banner in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  In order to stamp the sentiment in parts, I covered the part I wasn’t stamping with washi tape, inked up the stamp, removed the tape, and stamped it down.  I did this until I had the full sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card

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

I normally tend to use reds for Christmas cards, but today I’m embracing green for Christmas, specifically Shaded Spruce.

My card starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock and stamped two boughs from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set on it in Shaded Spruce ink.  I then layered this on Gold Foil and tied a Shaded Spruce/Gold bow around the front of the card.

Next I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  On it I first stamped one of the boughs from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Delicata Gold ink.  Over that I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose Happiest of Holidays Card

There’s a 24-Hour sale coming our way starting tomorrow!!

I’m so excited I decided to add in a little something-something.  See all the details at the bottom of this post.

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

The layout for my card comes from this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  It’s a fun one and I sure hope you’ll play along this week!

Next I took a pattern from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and matted it on Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut out an oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

On the oval I stamped the tree from the Merry Moose Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.  I also stamped the tree on a separate piece of Whisper White and fussy cut it out.

I stamped the raccoon and presents images in Memento Black ink and colored them in using Smoky Slate (raccoon), Crumb Cake (log), Real Red and Mossy Meadow (presents) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut them out and adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Moose Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Real Red Cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Congrats Card

The Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!!!

One side has silver geometric patterns, but the other side has beautiful, photographed images.  This paper is worth getting all the attention of a card, so I kept it super simple today.

My card starts off with Purple Posy cardstock.  On it I adhered a pattern from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Highland Heather cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I used the Lovely Flowers Dies and cut out small flowers from Purple Posy and Highland Heather cardstock.  Lastly, I added Rhinestones on each of the flowers.

(You’ll notice one rhinestone had fallen off when I photographed the card; however, I realized this just in time before sending the card out 😉

I needed two of these cards, so I took another pattern from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper and used Seaside Spray and Night of Navy cardstock.

Enjoy!
