Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Card

Today’s card is one I made for last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial.

It uses the Winter Woods Bundle with hints of snowflakes behind it from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set.  I stamped the snowflakes the same way I did for this cute snowman card.

I normally do a Facebook Live Tutorial Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm.  However, being that tonight is Halloween, and I will be out with my trick-o-treaters, I won’t be able to go live.  Also, next week I’ll be in Orlando for OnStage with Stampin’ Up!

So be sure to swing by November 14th for my next Facebook Live Tutorial.  If you ever miss a video, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

Check out the video below to see how I made today’s card:

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Christmas Card

There are many reasons why I choose to buy certain stamps.

I try to pick ones that I think will be versatile (cards, scrapbooking, 3D projects)…
I’m a sucker for good and punny sentiments…
I love pretty calligraphy…

But sometimes I buy a stamp set because I love one image.

And I love-love-love the bow image from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set.

I really enjoy crafting with this set, but the bow is what steals the show for me.

My card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Down the middle I adhered a pattern from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink on another pattern from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  I matted this on Mossy Meadow cardstock.

Next I stamped the bow in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut it out using Paper Snips.  I adhered this using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler 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.

My card today starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pool Party cardstock, embossed it using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder, and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Silver Foil.  Next I took a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper and used the Detailed Deer Framelits to cut out a deer.

Stampin’ Up! Making Christmas Bright Clean & Simple Card

As colorful and layered up as my cards can be sometimes…

I really do enjoy and appreciate simplicity.

White, vanilla, and touches of silver.  All clean.  All simple.

Today’s card highlights the simplicity of winter white colors for Christmas

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the circle from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set in Versamark ink.

I sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock and then again on Silver Foil.

Next I adhered down three lines of Silver Baker’s Twine.  I punched out lights using the Christmas Bulb Punch – the light is Very Vanilla and the top Silver Foil.  I adhered the lights down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Card

Notice anything a little different around here?!

I got new graphics!

This is something I’ve been working on for a while and finally was able to switch things over.  Slowly but surely everything will look just a little different.

Different look, but same blog 🙂

My card today starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock which eventually gets matted on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I used the Stamparatus and the Winter Woods Stamp Set to create my trees.  I first stamped the trees in Old Olive ink on the top.  I then came back and stamped the trunks in Crumb Cake ink and added some Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss ink to highlight the trees.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Vellum.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Finally I used the In The Woods Framelits to cut out two trees from Gold Foil and I added two Gold Sequins to finish it off.

Enjoy!
