Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells Christmas

Has anyone had snow yet?!

I live in Upstate New York, but we haven’t had any snow yet.  I know some people hate snow, but if I’m going to have the cold, it might as well look pretty.

So for now, no snow in sight.  Hopefully soon!

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it on Silver Foil cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I used the Layering Squares framelits and cut out three Pool Party squares and three Silver Foil scalloped squares for which to show off my snowflakes.  I cut the snowflakes out of Whisper White cardstock using the Seasonal Layers thinlits and adhered them using liquid glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Seasonal Bells stamp set and Pool Party ink.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy and here’s to some snow real soon!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

My card today uses the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.

I start out with Emerald Envy cardstock and layered over it a panel of Shimmery Whisper White cardstock.  At the bottom I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Real Red ink.

I stamped the three Christmas tree images from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Archival Black ink on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock.  I then colored them in using an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy, Real Red, and Flirty Flamingo ink.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut each tree out and then matted them on a Basic Black scalloped square and then on the coordinating cardstock color square.  I added a Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine bow at the bottom.

Enjoy!

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

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

My card today starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the middle using Pumpkin Pie ink from the Count My Blessings stamp set.

Next I stamped the acorn and leaf images in Memento Black ink in the two corners.  I colored them in using the Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends.

I mounted the Whisper White cardstock on some Crumb Cake cardstock.  I tied around some Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then tied a Crushed Curry bow around the knot.  I adhered the Whisper White/Crumb Cake panel using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Inspire.Create.Challenges.

I cannot get enough of this beautiful Night in Bethlehem Bundle!  It is just so beautiful!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  Next I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhered over it a pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP.

On the bottom part of the Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black ink.  I then cut out the two scenes from Gold Foil Sheet using the Bethlehem Edgelits.  I adhered the larger one right on the DSP and adhered the smaller one in the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped Mary and Joseph in Archival Black ink on Whisper White, cut them out using the Bethelehm Edgelits, and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered them to the left even though the sketch has that detail on the right…Figured Mary and Joseph should be walking into Bethlehem 😉

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Christmas Card

My customers got some BIG news yesterday!  I’ll be posting it here on my blog later this week.   To sign up for my newsletter, click on the button below.

My card today is a clean, simple Christmas card.  I start off with Garden Green cardstock.  I then took a smaller panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to adhere over that.  I took a smaller panel of a pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and layered it on the bottom part of the Lemon Lime cardstock.

Next I took the pattern from the Quilted Christmas that had all the triangle patterns and fussy cut out five of them.  I then cut 1/8″ small strips of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to make “tree trunks” for the triangles.  I adhered them around the top part of the card.

I then tied around a Linen Thread bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Care stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Soft Sky banner.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.  Enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created!

My card today starts with Real Red cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP and used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle.  I then took a Basic Black panel and traced where the circle would be and cut out a circle from it.

I used the Hometown Greetings Edgelits and cut out the scene from Gold cardstock.  I first adhered a panel of Garden Green cardstock on the card front where I knew the circle would cover.  Then I adhered the gold scene over it.  I adhered the DSP with the circle over the scene using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I pulled the little steeple out to poke out of the circle.

I wrapped around some Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon and tied a bow.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut the ends using the Everyday Label Punch.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

My card today starts off with Garden Green cardstock.  I then took a panel of Soft Sky cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set in Garden Green ink about 2/3 the way down.  I sort of measured the pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP around it.

I then created my layers.  First I  cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I put some adhesive in the center of it and adhered the mini gold sequins to dangle down.  I fussy cut out a sunflower from the Painted Autumn DSP and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out a 1′ banner of Soft Sky cardstock and adhered over it a folded piece of Soft Sky Ribbon.  I also cut a piece of a Gold Doily to have poking out.   I adhered the sunflower/circle/sequin combination over it.  I added a few gold sequins and a Garden Green enamel shape around the sentiment to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe & Merry Cafe

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

It’s sort of ironic because I made this card over a week ago.  I was waiting for a good time to post it.  So I was so excited to see the above sketch challenge – it was perfect!

My card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took four patterns from the Coffee Break DSP and matted them each on Early Espresso cardstock.

I then stamped the coffee cup outline in Early Espresso ink on another pattern from the Coffee Break DSP.  I stamped the outline of the lid in Early Espresso ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I cut them out and the cup holder using the Coffee Cups Framelits.

I stamped the heart sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz ink and fussy cut it out.  Before adhering the cup to the card front, I cut a piece of doily to adhere behind it, as well as a folded piece of Soft Sky ribbon.  I adhered the cup and lid using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took one panel from the Be Merry DSP and cut it down to 5′ x 3.3/4′ and trimmed off bottom left corner.  I then took another pattern and matched the cut out.  I adhered the DSP to a slightly larger panel of Whisper White cardstock and then I covered the seam with some Garden Green ribbon.

Next I cut out a bunch of boughs and other details using the Pretty Pines Thinlits and Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Gold cardstock.  I cut out a few gold pinecones and adhered the one using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I folded around the Garden Green ribbon a few times and tied a Linen Thread bow holding it together.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas

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

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and a smaller panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed them using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Before adhering layering them, I put a piece of Pool Party Ribbon between them.

Next I stamped the snowman and reindeer from the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set/Bundle in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using the new and gorgeous Stampin Blend markers.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive.  I cut them out with the Seasonal Tags Framelits.

Using the same Seasonal Tag Framelits, I cut out a few snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock and adhered them around the snowman and reindeer.  I then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and manipulated the cardstock to “roll.”  I put a dimensional under the words and at the end of the banner and adhered it down.
