Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Card

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Today’s card starts off with Highland Heather cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Wishing You Well Stamp Set and stamped the leaves in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Over that I stamped the flowers in Highland Heather ink.  I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink in the lower left hand corner.

I matted this on Crumb Cake cardstock and added a Whisper White banner underneath it.

Lastly, I stamped the bow in Highland Heather ink, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames – Best Wishes

Happy Friday everyone!

Any fun plans this weekend?!

I’m in Orlando right now for Stampin’ Up!s OnStage with a whole slew of other demonstrators.  Head over to my Facebook page to check out pictures of our travels and some sneak peeks of things to come.

For today’s card I started  off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I adhered down a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Foliage Frames Thinlits to cut out a floral frame from Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut out a few different leaves using the same thinlits and Silver Foil, Petal Pink, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock to adhere behind the Night of Navy frame.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Enjoy!

My card starts off with Merry Merlot cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Next I adhered down a piece of Gold Foil over the cards front.

I stamped the frame from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I used the Varied Vases stamp set to stamp the vases and flowers in Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry ink (stamping off for the inside of the flowers).  I stamped the sentiment also in Merry Merlot ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost – CTS295

The next two weeks are going to be quite busy for me.

This week I head out for a scrapbooking getaway and next week I’ll be in Orlando for OnStage with Stampin’ Up!

I plan on posting lots of pictures along the way of both so be sure to “like” my Facebook page so you can follow along!

My card today is a simple and sweet one using the First Frost Bundle.  It starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the “vine” image from the First Frost Stamp Set in Mint Macaron three times in the left hand corner.  I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink underneath it.

The Whisper White cardstock got matted on Merry Merlot cardstock.  Next I used the Frosted Bouquet Thinlits to cut out two sprigs from Petal Pink cardstock.

I stamped two flowers in Merry Merlot and Petal Pink ink and cut them out with the same thinlits.

I added a Mint Macaron bow and a few rhinestones to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a joint hop with the Happy Stampers.  We could choose from either of the challenges below, and I thought I could easily work them together.

My card starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock.  Over that I adhered a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the First Frost Stamp Set to stamp the large flower in Merry Merlot ink around the outside.  I matted this on Copper Foil.

Before adhering this down, I wound underneath a piece of Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon and then tied a bow to go next to the sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment from the First Frost Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I wound some Copper Thread underneath it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Holiday Catalog Facebook Party

In years past I’ve held catalog launch parties in my house and they’re a blast. The only problem is that the majority of you aren’t local to me and I want to be able to craft and have fun with you too.

So I’m trying something new to me and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Introducing my Holiday Catalog Facebook Party…

Join me October 26th at 7:00 p.m. on my Facebook page. I will go live in a video and “together” we’ll create two Make & Take cards. We’ll play Bingo (and of course there’ll be prizes) and there’ll be a Scavenger Hunt.  I’ll also have a few “door” prizes to give away.

Again, this is all online. You do not need to be local to participate.

The party date is October 26th.  I will create a closed Facebook group for this event.  If you are unable to make it live, the video(s) will be there until November 1st for you to still make the cards (games will have already been done).

The cost to join the party is $20. This covers the cost to put together and mail you the Make & Take cards. The Bingo is free to participate in.

Be sure to share the Facebook event and invite friends, family, and co-workers to the party.  Just think – we’ll make cards together, play some games, give away some prizes – all from the comfort of your home.  Pajamas are welcome!

The Make & Take cards will be two cards featuring new product from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  All product needed to put the cards together will be mailed to your prior to October 26th.  However, as per Stampin’ Up! policy, I can’t mail you any stamped images. 

For the sentiments you can either use a sentiment from a stamp set you already own, or you can purchase the Many Blessings Stamp Set ahead of time, which is the set that I’ll use in my examples.  Please note the only stamping on the cards will be the sentiments.

To participate in my Holiday Facebook Online Party, please fill out the form below and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice via e-mail. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay the invoice.  There is an option to pay by credit card through PayPal without setting up an account.

You have until October 15th to sign up, so don’t wait!  It’s going to be a lot of fun.

Please note that only residents in the United States may participate.  Thanks!

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Notes

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is a fun color challenge.  Be sure to participate this week and link up your project to the challenge.

I thought I would keep things super clean and simple today with a set of note cards.

I love note cards – they don’t need a lot of detail on them and yet they do just the trick when wanting to send “just a note.”  I made these note cards the other day, so maybe I’m on a roll.

My note card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.    I then cut a banner using Gorgeous Grape cardstock to run down the middle.

I then stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, which I matted on Night of Navy cardstock.

I then stamped the bow in Flirty Flamingo ink and fussy cut it out, adhering it with Stampin’ Mini Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I decided to switch the colors of the wreath and bow to have a few options with subtle differences.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Birthday

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

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I then layered a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP over the card front.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Call Me Clover cardstock.  I stamped the flower from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used the Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker to color just a little bit around the flower.

Lastly, I tied a Linen Thread ribbon through a True Gentleman button to the one corner.

Enjoy!
