Stampin’ Up! Classic Cloche Card

I swear sometimes if my head wasn’t stuck on my shoulders, I’d lose it.

Today’s card was one I made for last week’s Wednesday night live…
I forgot I made it…
Made a different one…
And later remembered this one.

So, I’m going to be making this one today over on YouTube instead at 1:00 pm EDT. I sure hope to “see” you then!

I’m using non-traditional Christmas colors for this card that shows off the Classic Cloche Bundle.

(By the way, I hope you can make it to the live tutorial today because I need your help pronouncing this bundle.)

If you ever miss any of my tutorials, you can check them out over on YouTube, and while there, be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss out on anything!!

And here’s a plug for tomorrow night, Wednesday, I’ll be live over in Facebook at 7:30 pm EDT. Hope to “see” you there as well!!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Christmas Card

I love the suites that Stampin’ Up! puts together. It’s all coordinated product that’s meant to go together which makes paper crafting so easy!

For today’s card, I used product from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite.

Stampin' Up! Frosted Gingerbread Christmas Card

It’s part of this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop which is a sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the lace detail on either side of it in Real Red ink. I then matted this on a Cinnamon Cider panel.

I then took another pattern from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper and fussy cut out the mittens – aren’t they the cutest!

Stampin' Up! Frosted Gingerbread Christmas Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

I have been wanting to use the Festive Foliage Stamp Set for a very long time now!!

I’ve seen it embossed in gold a couple of times now by other demos, and I just LOVE how it looks.

Stampin' Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

I took some creative liberties with the sketch challenge this week to sort of make it work with this beautiful product. 😉

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop September Sketch Challenge'

My card starts off with Evening Evergreen cardstock. I stamped the big image from the Festive Foliage in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the big image from the Festive Foliage in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Christmas Trimmings Dies and cut out a big star from Cherry Cobbler, a detailed star from Gold Foil, holly leaves from Soft Succulent, and holly berries from Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and snipped the ends in a banner.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

I love when Stampin’ Up! gets extra creative with their stamps like with the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set.

I used it last week for my Facebook Live tutorial. I showed this fun Christmas card and the same layout but as a birthday card as well, which you’ll see on Friday.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

This Christmas card is unique first because of the little piece of Designer Series Paper that pokes out the side next to the stitched scalloped edge.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

I also did some fun fussy cutting and paper piecing to make presents at her feet.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

The great part about the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set is you can make so many different images just by mix and matching them. Be sure to check out my post on Friday to get a look at the birthday card, especially if fussy cutting isn’t your thing. 😉

I’ll be back tonight with another live tutorial!! I’ll be showing you how to make Part 2 of yesterday’s card that I made on YouTube. Join me at 7:30 pm EDT over on my Facebook page.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Christmas Card

Let’s talk tags for a moment.

Do you use them?
If so, how?

We have punches that make tags and dies that make tags.
Which do you prefer?

Stampin' Up! Happy Holly-Days Christmas Card

I love to make tags for gift giving. I’m always wrapping a team gift or family gift and decorating with a tag. Of course, the tag has to coordinate with the card.

Stampin' Up! Happy Holly-Days Christmas Card

I also REALLY like using tags as a design element to a card.

Stampin' Up! Happy Holly-Days Christmas Card

Today’s card was one I shared last week for my Facebook live. It uses the Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set, the Tailor Made Tags Dies, and beautiful Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Christmas Card

This past Tuesday I heled our monthly team meeting with my Art & Soul team.

I wanted to try something new this month and did a mystery stamping card with them.
I gave them cardstock measurements and the general tools they’d need, but they picked colors, stamps, embossing folder, etc.

So our cards look similar, but are all different.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

Today’s card starts off with Real Red cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper and matted it on Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

I then stamped a background using images from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set in Real Red, Old Olive, and Cinnamon Cider ink. I embossed it using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, cut it in four pieces, and matted it on Basic White cardstock.

I then matted that on Old Olive cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

I then stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cinnamon Cider cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

Under the sentiment I added a piece of Real Red Ruched Ribbon and then adhered the sentiment over it in Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

This Christmas card I made as my prototype for my team meeting.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Card

I then made a card at the same time as my team was Tuesday night. I switched things up and used the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and this is how that came out:

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Card

I have a great team and I love these ladies dearly.

We have a fun time together and would love for you to join the Art & Soul team!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Season’s Greetings Card

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper was the first thing I fell in love with and bought (even before ink pads).

We get a treat during Sale-a-bration where we can earn product, including Designer Series Paper, for free!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Christmas Card

I chose to use the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration Brochure for this week’s theme challenge – “critters.”

May be an image of emperor penguin and text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop August 12 Theme Challenge Critters'

My card starts off with Just Jade cardstock which I embossed using the gorgeous Wintry Embossing Folder.

This is a mini embossing folder so naturally doesn’t fit the complete card front. If you’re looking for a trick on how to make this work, check this out here.

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Christmas Card

I next used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out a pattern from the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Christmas Card

I then put my Paper Snips to the test and fussy cut out three of the sweet animals, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Christmas Card

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Penguin Place Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Underneath it I wound some black and white twine and added a little sequin.

The Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper is included in this brochure and free with a $50 order.

My card today starts off with Real Red cardstock, which I embossed using the Wintry Embossing Folder.

You can catch how I used this mini embossing folder to emboss a full card front here.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer Christmas Card

I then took two patterns from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper, cut them out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, and matted them on Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer Christmas Card

On the one pattern, I stamped the trees from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set in Garden Green ink.

I used the Deer Builder Punch to cut out a deer from another pattern from the Peaceful Prints DSP.
