Stampin’ Up! – So Santa Scooting By

Yay for it being Friday!!!

Any fun plans this weekend?

The leaves are gorgeous in Upstate New York right now so I think we might go for a hike.  I just love the fall!!

Now on to today’s card…

My card starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (to be matted on Poppy Parade cardstock) and stamped the Santa from the So Santa Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

I colored Santa in using Poppy Parade (hat, outfit, & presents), Call Me Clover (wheels & bag), Basic Black (belt & glasses), Smoky Slate (scooter), Ivory (face), Mint Macaron (gifts), Crumb Cake (teddy bear & dirt) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Santa Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on Call Me Clover cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly I wound around some Poppy Parade Ribbon in a ribbon.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Baubles Card

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

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock which I embossed using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.

I then cut a piece of Real Red Ribbon and layered over that a pattern from the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper.

Next I cut out a square using the Stitched Shapes Framelits on which I stamped the ornament image from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set in Real Red ink.

I stamped the same image on a piece of Real Red cardstock in Versamark ink which I sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat set.  I cut the ornaments out using the coordinating Detailed Baubles Thinlits and adhered them using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Noel Card

Happy Columbus Day!

Do you have any fun plans for today?

I’m heading to a farm that has lots of fun fall activities for the kids to do and pumpkin picking – one of our favorite places to go in the fall.  I’ll post pictures on my Facebook page.

And while we’re enjoying fall – snow isn’t too far behind.  Sorry folks, I know I’m the rare one – I LOVE snow!!  Bring it on – nothing like crafting during a snow storm.

So my card today starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.  I then layered a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Gold Foil.

On the right side of the Whisper White I adhered a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.   I covered the seam with a thin piece of Gold Foil.

I then used the Lined Alphabet to stamp the letters of “snow” in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it.

Lastly I tied a Merry Merlot ribbon around a Snowflake Wire Element and adhered it over the Designer Series Paper.

Enjoy!


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

It starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock.  I then embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Softly Falling embossing folder which then got matted on Garden Green cardstock.

I then cut a pattern from the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper to run vertically down my card.

Using the same Santa’s Workshop DSP, I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut Santa out.  This DSP is full of great Santa Workshop images which you can either use as background images or work great on their own when cut out.

I used the Washi Tape technique to get just the Ho!Ho!Ho! to show from the sentiment in the So Santa Stamp Set which I stamped in Poppy Parade ink.  I also added a few enamel shapes from the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Spirited Snowmen – Love Never Melts

I have been on a Stampin’ Blends Markers kick this week.

Today’s card is #4 that has used them.  Stampin’ Up! has added so many great colors between the Annual Catalog and Holiday Catalog that it makes coloring so easy and fun!

You can see my other three cards here, here, and here.

My card today is a simple, but oh so cute card.  I wish you could see it in person because the photo doesn’t do it justice.

It starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then stamped the snowman couple from the Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock (which eventually gets matted on another Whisper White panel).

I used Light Basic Black (hat), Light Smokey slate (hat), Dark and Light Cherry Cobbler (heart, hat, scarf, holly berries), Light and Dark Old Olive (holly leaves, bow), Light and Dark Crumb Cake (scarf, arms), Light Pumpkin Pie (carrot nose0, Light Petal Pink (light shadowing under showmen) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color them in.

I then stamped the snowflakes from the Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set in Versamark ink all around the snowmen.  I sprinkled it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink under the snowmen.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! So Santa Christmas Card

I am having so much fun coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I’ve always been really intimidated by water coloring, but using the Stampin’ Blends Markers makes coloring so easy and a lot of fun!

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock.  Next I matted a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock which I embossed using the Simply Stripes embossing folder on Whisper White cardstock.

Before adhering it down, I wrapped around some Poppy Parade ribbon and tied a bow (to be adhered over the Whisper White).

I stamped the image from the So Santa Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used Poppy Parade, Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the images.  I also used the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker to give Santa some rosy cheeks.

I matted this on a slightly larger panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
