Stampin’ Up! Joyful Nativity

You may be asking yourself if this is really Stamp It Up With Jaimie’s blog because yet again I bring you a non-traditional colored Christmas card.  Rest assured, this is my blog.  🙂

I used Night of Navy as the base to my card and then layered a square of Whisper White over a piece of Silver Foil Sheet.  I heat embossed in white the Star stamp from the Joyful Nativity stamp set and then stamped in Night of Navy the cluster of stars from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set all around the Night of Navy.

joyful-nativity-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

On the Whisper White I stamped in Night of Navy the nativity scene from the Joyful Nativity stamp set.  I adhered it to the Silver Foil Sheet and added a strip of Burlap and a Linen Thread bow at the top.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and adhered it over the other layers using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Trees

Today’s card share is inspired by this week’s challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and Fab Friday.fms-final-255-001fabfri-003My card uses Delightful Dijon as its base which I dry embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.

stitched-with-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Then I layered Very Vanilla on Emerald Envy and stamped the larger tree from the Foxy Friends in Emerald Envy and then the smaller tree in Emerald Envy (stamping off first).  I used the masking technique to give a sense of depth to the trees.

stitched-with-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly I cut out a strip of the Delightful Dijon Ribbon from the Trio Pack and after deciding the placement of it, I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched with Cheer in Delightful Dijon above it.  These colors felt like a cozy fall evening which is why I chose that sentiment.  Fall is in the air!!

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched With Cheer

If you’re swinging by from Amy’s blog – Thanks for taking the time to visit!

For today’s card I’m featuring the beautiful This Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set.

I start with Garden Green as my base and dry embossed it using the Holly Textured embossing folder.

stitched-with-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I next used three patterns from the This Christmas DSP to create some fun layering.  I matted each pattern in a coordinating color, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler.  I cut the circles out using the Layering Circles.

stitched-wthi-cheer-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

In a few weeks I’ll be hosting a Holiday Open House.  Among other things, we’ll be using the Stitched with Cheer stamp set to create 18 cards using the coordinating kit.  The great thing about this kit is that the coordinating stamp set can be used for so much beyond just the kit.  I used the “Christmas Joy” sentiment for my card in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the Banners Framelits.  I added a Cherry Cobbler bow to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Wonder of Christmas

For today’s card share I’m using the beautiful Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set.  I love this set because I just think the angel is so sweet and I loved the different sentiments it came with.

For the card description, I’m going to work my way backwards because honestly, that’s how the card developed.

I started with my angel.  She was stamped in Stazon Black (permanent ink, which allows for water coloring).  I then used the aqua painters and Marina Mist for her dress and shoes, Garden Green for the banner, Daffodil Delight for her wings, and Crumb Cake for her hair and body.  Next I fussy cut her out.

Wonder of Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I wanted her to really pop, so I cut out a Daffodil Delight scalloped circle and stamped it with the star (included in the Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set) in Daffodil Delight and adhere the angel to it.

Next, I layered a pattern from the This Christmas DSP over some Whisper White and tied a Gold Baker’s Twine Bow around it from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack.

Wonder of Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Last but not least, I used Garden Green as my background and heat embossed in gold the sentient “The Lord is Come” and then stamped in Garden Green some more stars all around.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday

Well, for today’s card I wanted to feature (again) the new Petals & Paisleys NEW DSP.  It’s available in only three days.

It’s funny to think that I almost didn’t purchase the Petals & Paisleys Suite from the new Holiday Catalog.  It was definitely a last minute decision, but I have to say – It’s the stamp set I keep going for and am having to show some restraint because I literally just want to keep using it.

Anyways, back to my card…I started with some Dapper Denim as my base card.  I then added a beautiful – a gorgeous – an irresistible pattern from the Petals & Paisleys DSP, matted over some Very Vanilla.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I cut a strip of Rich Razzleberry to go horizontal over the DSP and added a coordinating Mint Macaron bow over it.

Happy Birthday - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Finally, I stamped the fun sentiment using the Stylized Birthday Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry and added some other shapes from the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set.  I cut it out using the Layering Ovals and also cut out the next size bigger in Dapper Denim, adhering them to the center of the card.

Enjoy!

Dropping in to Say Happy Birthday

Once again, I loved this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

FMS Final 249-001

I knew I wanted something fun and bright so I went birthday balloons!

To start off I used Watermelon Wonder.  I then layered some Whisper White over Flirty Flamingo.  Next I created my “falling balloons” using the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set.  Starting from the top I used Flirty Flamingo and just used the different shades of it – first stamping off twice for one row, then stamping off once for the next row, and finally for the bottom two rows, stamping directly onto the cardstock.

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I wanted to add some extra depth, so I used the same stamping to create three balloons which I cut out using the coordinating balloon punch.  The sentiment on the balloons actually comes from the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set.  I just cut out the words individually (and didn’t use the “Hi”).

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

For the bottom of the card, I cut out a strip of a lined pattern in Watermelon Wonder from the Fruit Stand DSP and then layered over it some Watermelon Wonder Mini Striped Ribbon and lastly the Happy Birthday which is from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.

Enjoy!

Make a Wish Birthday

Although I have used the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set to create yummy cupcake cards in the past, I haven’t used the candles yet.  When I saw this week’s layout challenge over at Freshly Make Sketches, I knew just what I wanted to do.

FMS Final 248-001

For my card I start with a base of Flirty Flamingo.  I then cut out two Whisper White pieces and layered them over each other (kind of hard to tell in the picture).

Make a Wish - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I created my candles by stamping the two-step candle stamps in Flirty Flamingo (stamping off for the lighter color) and cut them out using the coordinating thinlit from the Sweet Cupcake Bundle.  Before attaching it I tied a bit of Linen Thread in a ribbon around them.

Sweet Cupcake - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

For my sentiment detail, I layered a Lace Doily, under some Ruched Flirty Flamingo Ribbon, under the “wish” sentiment which is included in the Sweet Cupcake Bundle.  I added the “Make A” just next to the candles and then some scattered pearl jewels around the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

Today’s card share is inspired by this week’s color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts and layout challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.FMS Final 247-001PPA311My card starts with a base of Smoky Slate.  I left it there and decided to keep a clean, crisp card.

Botanical Builder - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Botanical Builder Thinlits to create the flower gathering in the corner.  I used Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, and Marina Mist colors to build them.

Penned & Painted

So low and behold this card was supposed to be my Monday post, but, well, it just didn’t happen.  My inspiration came from the Freshly Make Sketches Challenge (which is now closed, oh well).

FMS246

This card was interesting – yes that word – it’s neither good nor bad.  I originally had one idea involving vellum and I thought it’d be pretty cool – a play on the tag and negative space.  Well voila that didn’t happen.

So this was Plan B.

My card starts with a base of Peekaboo Peach layered with some Whisper White.

Penned & Painted - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I first stamped the two-layered flowers from the Penned & Painted Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach (first stamping off for the lighter color)  Then I cut a 2″ tag from Whisper White and layered it over a bit of the flowers.  That way when I stamped the black outline it would cover both the tag and the card itself.  Before adhering the stamp I layered it over some Peekaboo Peach as well and strung some Black Thick Baker’s Twine through the top.

Penned & Painted - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For the sentiment detail, I first stamped the sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach and then used the dotted stamp included in the Penned & Painted Stamp Set to stamp around the sentiment, stamping off for the dots and then full strength for the overlapped flower.

Penned & Painted - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin UpBefore I adhered the sentiment detail, I layered it over some Peekaboo Peach cardstock and snuck in behind it some Black Thick Baker’s Twine.

Flourish Thinlits Celebrate Card

For today’s card share, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches  layout challenge.

FMS Final 245-001For my take on the sketch, I started with a base of Night of Navy.  I then layered a pattern from the Affectionately Yours DSP over some Sahara Sand.  I then placed some Night of Navy ribbon across the top-ish (yes, that’s a technical term) of the card to act as the “divide.”  Next I cut a 1/2″ Sahara Sand strip of cardstock and 1/4″ Night of Navy strip of cardstock and layered them over some Mint Macaron cardstock to be my rectangular focus (yes, another technical term).

Flourish Thinlits - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I cut out three stems/leaves from the Flourish Thinlits again going with the color scheme of Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, and Mint Macaron and layered them to the right of the card.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment “Celebrate” from the Thoughtful Banners in Night of Navy over Sahara Sand and cut it out with the coordinating Duet Banner Punch included in the bundle.
