Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure Christmas Greetings

I LOVE plaid for Christmas – love, love, love!

No need to look past the Annual Catalog for some great Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Today’s card uses the beautiful Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.

This card in particular was one I featured on my Wednesday night Facebook Live Tutorial.

This is a weekly tutorial I do Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm EST.    If you ever miss a tutorial, you can see them all on my YouTube channel.

If you catch it live at 7:30 pm EST and leave a message (of some sort), at the end I draw a name for someone to receive that night’s card (blank on the inside, of course).

Check out the my Facebook Live Tutorial video below to see how I created this card:

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!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames Birthday

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Be sure to swing by my Facebook page tonight at 7:30 pm EST.  I have a really cozy Christmas card (sneak peek below) to share with you tonight.  If you catch the tutorial live and leave a comment, at the end I’ll draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card!

My card today starts off with Early Espresso cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Before adhering down a Bermuda Bay pattern from the Brights 6×6 Designer Series Paper, I stamped a few sprigs of leaves in Bermuda Bay ink on the Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Frames Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out with a frame from the Foliage Frame Thinlits.

I then cut out a bunch of leaves in Bermuda Bay, Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the same Foliage Frame Thinlits.

I stamped the flowers in Pumpkin Pie ink and cut then out with the same thinlits.  Lastly, I added a few pearls around the images.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s color challenge at TGIF Challenges!

Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces Card – HSS298

We have a fun sketch challenge for you this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Be sure to head over and participate!

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock. I then adhered a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack.

I then matted Whisper White cardstock on Balmy Blue cardstock matted again on Whisper White cardstock. What can I say – I love matting.

Using the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits, I cut out the big puzzle four times from Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I then took pieces from all four colors to create a colorful puzzle.

Lastly, I used the Love You To Pieces stamp set to stamp the puzzle pieces in Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam ink.

Underneath the puzzle pieces I cut a vellum scalloped circle using the Layering Circles Framelits and also adhered a piece of Polka Dot Ribbon and Coastal Cabana ribbon.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest & Another Wonderful Year Card

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

This color combination made me think of fall, so I pulled out a beloved stamp set that I haven’t used in a while – Painted Harvest – and paired it with a stamp set full of really great sentiments – Another Wonderful Year.

My card starts off with Early Espresso cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the right upper corner.

Next I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock on a diagonal and stamped the stitched edge from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Early Espresso around it.

I used Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, and Early Espresso ink and the Painted Harvest stamp set to create my sunflower.  I used the masking technique to get the leaves to be behind the flower.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic – FabFri145

First off, today the 2018 Holiday Catalog goes live!!!

Wahoo!  Fall and winter crafting is my favorite!!!

If you have yet to receive a Holiday Catalog, please click the Contact Me in the menu and I’ll get one out to you zippity snap.

Now on to today’s card…

My card starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock which I embossed using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.  I love this new embossing folder and I think it’s so versatile for much more than just Christmas cards.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Mango Melody cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in the bottom corner using Shaded Spruce ink.  I added a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot.

I cut out a Mango Melody cardstock banner.  I used the Stamparatus and the Tropical Chic stamp set to create my flower and leaf.  I stamped the flower in Mango Melody first and then went over it with hints of Poppy Parade using a Sponge Dauber.  I did the same for the leaf using Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce ink.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – New Baby Card

I have a baby shower coming up so I decided to go ahead and make the card to go with the gift.

She’s expecting a baby girl which I wanted to reflect in the card…without it screaming pink everywhere.

Now I know, I know kangaroos aren’t pink, but I just couldn’t help myself 🙂

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock (although you can’t see it).  I then adhered a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper over the front.  Next I matted a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock on Silver Foil cardstock.

I wrapped around the front of the card a Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine bow.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a scalloped Petal Pink circle and then the Stitched Shapes Framelis to cut out a stitched Whisper White circle.  I adhered behind it a Silver Foil banner.

I stamped the kangaroo (and koala) in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored them in using the Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I stamped the “Welcome” from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on Petal Pink cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I also stamped the “Little One” in Memento Black ink.  I also added a few rhinestones around everything to add a little bling.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Neutral Color Palette Thank You

Happy Labor Day everyone!!!

I know for many kids/families school has already begun, but for us in Upstate New York school begins this Thursday.  So Labor Day is always sort of the last goodbye to summer.  It seems like it always goes so fast.

So have fun and be safe!!

I wanted to try a neutral color scheme for today’s card.  I did head over to my Facebook page for some advice.  As you know, Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is gorgeous.

Well, when I flipped over the neutral side (that I used), there was this beautiful Grapefruit Grove pattern and I felt torn as to which to use.

So I asked people what they thought and it was pretty divided, so this is what I went with – neutral card, hint of color.  What would you have picked?  Head over to my Facebook page to see the other option.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I tucked a Colored Doily behind a pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP for the card front.  I them stamped the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and added a few Grapefruit Grove pearls.

Lastly I stamped the leaves from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut them out using the Nature’s Roots Framelits.

Enjoy!


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