Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags

Tags have a really special way of making gift giving even more special.

They had a unique touch to your wrapping and are one of a kind.

I know personally when I receive a beautiful tag, specifically a Christmas one, it then becomes a Christmas ornament.

Today’s post offers my Christmas Tag Mailed Stamp Kit.

In this kit you will receive:

  • The Merry Little Labels Bundle
  • Mini Ornaments (8 in the box)
  • Green Sprigs (12 in the box)
  • Year of Cheer Embellishments (24 in total)
  • Linen Thread – FREE
  • The makings for 10 original Christmas tags (2 each of 5 designs)
  • PDF file with instructions on how to make the 10 tags and other Christmas cards using this bundle

The cost for the Christmas Tag Mailed Stamp Kit is $60 plus $6.75 for shipping.

If you already own the Merry Little Labels Bundle, you may purchase other Stampin’ Up! product valued at $34.

Here’s a peek at the five tags:

*Please note two of the tags use the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies to create holly leaves and berries.  If you do not own these items, you will receive the cutout image from solid Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstock*

To sign up for the Christmas Tags Mailed Stamp Kit, please fill out below by November 8th:

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest

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

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP.  Next I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using the Painted Harvest stamp set I stamped the sunflowers in Tangerine Tango (stamping off first for the larger petals) and Early Espresso inks.  I matted this on some Tangerine Tango cardstock.

I stamped the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and cut them out with the Leaf Punch.  I adhered them behind the panel with the sunflowers and then adhered everything to the card.

Next, I adhered a piece of Burlap ribbon across the card.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and then matted it on a panel of Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I added a few Tangerine Tango enamel shapes to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons

Today’s card is a quick, but sweet “Thinking of You” card which is really a thank you card.  Customers who placed orders this past week received this card in the mail with a message on a Post-It Note, leaving it blank for them to fill in and re-mail.

I recently bought the Colorful Seasons stamp set when it was on sale earlier this month, but didn’t have the coordinating thinlits….yet 😉

So I had to create a card that showcased the stamp set without the need to cut any leaves out.  Easier said than done and I, once again, have such an appreciation for thinlits/framelits.

My card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (which will be layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock) and created my falling leaves using the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  I took the smallest leaf and inked it up with Crushed Curry and then sort of tapped the edges on some Peekaboo Peach ink.

I did the same technique with the bigger leaf on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I inked up the outline leaf image in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut this one out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then matted a Gold Foil Sheet square behind it.

I inked up the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed that as well.  I wound around some Gold Thread behind the square and adhered it to the card.

Enjoy!

Here’s the bunch of cards that went out in the mail.  It honestly brings me so much joy!  Remember what I always say – Don’t hoard the cards – mail them!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Chums

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s MFT Card Sketch Challenge.

Today’s card starts off with Basic Black cardstock with a pattern from the Spooky Nights DSP adhered over the card front.  I then took another pattern and matted it on some Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the pumpkin from the Seasonal Chums stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored it in using the brand new Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers.  I used the Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive markers to color it in.

What I like about the markers after playing with them for a bit is: 1. They can be used with Whisper White paper – no watercolor paper needed; 2. They don’t leave lines when coloring in; 3. They’re forgiving – I’m by no means an expert in coloring and I found them easy to use; 4. A Color Lifter was offered for any “oops” you may make.  As soon as they are available to customers I promise to let you know!

The Stampin’ Blends will be available to all customers to purchase beginning November 1st!!

I fussy cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth of the Jack-o-lantern and cut out a small piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock to adhere to the back of it.  I cut out the pumpkin and the leaves (Old Olive cardstock) using the Seasonal Tags framelits.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Pumpkin Pie and snipped the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Lit Christmas

My card today features the fun Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  What makes bundles great is they pair a stamp set and thinlits/framelits/punch together for a discounted price of 10%.  The stamp set and thinlits (in this case) sometimes match perfectly to cut out images and other times compliment one another.

I start off with Soft Sky cardstock which I embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I then started by creating my lamppost using the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  I cut the lamp out in Basic Black cardstock and the lights in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The bow comes from the Christmas Around the World DSP which perfectly matches the bow thinlit from the bundle!

I cut out a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and then used a square framelit to cut out the inside.  I layered behind it a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Memento Black on Real Red cardstock.  I added a Whisper white die cut snowflake from the Seasonal Tags Thinlits and wrapped behind it some Silver Thread.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Blessings

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

This week’s card starts off with Garden Green cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock and adhered a panel of Gold Foil cardstock behind it.

I used the Layering Circles Framelits and cut out two circles from the Gold Foil cardstock.  I then added some texture around the edge of them by placing the cardstock face down on my cutting pad (which is well loved and has lots of texture on it).  Over the Gold Foil circle I placed a slightly larger circle framelit but with the cutting “lip” faced up away from the paper.  This way the edge of the circle was making an impression on the paper and the texture from the cutting pad was making an embossed look on the gold foil.

I cut out a scene from the  Hometown Greetings framelits from Basic Black cardstock and measured them across each of the ornaments and trimmed them down.

I wrapped around some Gold Thread a bunch of times and then adhered it from the top of the DSP down to wear the ornaments would hang.  I used the Pretty Pines thinlits to cut out some boughs from Garden Green cardstock and a bow from Real Red cardstock to decorate the one ornament.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Memento Black ink on Real Red cardstock and cut it out using the Cupcake Cutouts framelits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Special Celebrations

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

My card today starts with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and matted it on Gold Foil.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set in Soft Sky ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then matted it on Gold Foil.

I added a Gold Metallic-Edge bow just under the sentiment.  I then stamped the little safety pin from the Better Together in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it underneath the ribbon.

Enjoy!

Giving Thanks Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Giving Thanks.”

One of my good friends recently had a birthday and I decided to make her a decorative picture frame.

I purchased the picture frame at a local Home Goods store (love them!).

I created each of the elements using the Count My Blessings stamp set.

I stamped the flower, leaf, and acorn elements first in Archival Black ink on Watercolor Paper.  I then used Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive inks and an Aqua Painter to color them in.  I then fussy cut them each out using Paper Snips.

I wrapped around the picture frame some Crushed Curry Ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink on the Watercolor Paper and then cut it out using the Stitched  Shapes  Framelits.  I adhered each of the elements using Tear & Tape adhesive.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Merry Christmas

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s challenge at Inspire.Create.Challenges.

When I saw the sketch challenge, I was pretty sure what I wanted to create – a clean and simple black and white Christmas card.  I love the crispness of this card and it certainly could easily be duplicated.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  The “Thick” cardstock is ideal for any card base and really holds up nicely to build a card off of.  I then took a pattern from the Merry Music DSP and cut it on a diagonal to adhere to the card front.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I cut out trees using the Card Front Builder Thinlits from the same pattern from the Merry Music DSP.

I stamped the Santa from the Hearts Come Home stamp set in Archival Black ink over the embossed cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!
