Stampin’ Up! Long and Slim In The Pines Card

I usually stick to traditional cards.
Sometimes I’ll vary and make square cards, sometimes note cards, but if anything, I go smaller.

For today I did my very first long and slim card and I love how it came out!

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  The card base measures 7 x 8-1/2, scored at 3-1/2.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the trees in Mossy Meadow from the In The Pines Stamp Set.  I stamped off first for the lighter shade of green.  I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Both stamp sets are available beginning Aug 4th!

I then matted this on a panel of Gold Foil.  I wrapped around some Gold ribbon in a knot, tying a Gold thread bow in the knot.

PS – I LOVE this gold thread.  It has a lot of “oomph” (technical term) and holds a great bow!  Get a sampling of it in my Product Share – last day to order one!

Thanks for checking out my project today!


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

Stampin’ Up! Jolly Holly Christmas Card

Who’s excited it’s Friday!!!

I have a full weekend but am still hoping to get some stamping/me time in – how about you?

My card starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the outside with the holly image from the Jolly Holly Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I stamped the inside images in Shaded Spruce for the holly and Real Red ink for the berries.

I then matted this on Real Red cardstock.

Next I used the Shaded Spruce ribbon from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Pack and folded it over itself.

I stamped the sentiment from the Jolly Holly in Real Red ink and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Lastly I added a few Red Rhinestones next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World – Peace on Earth Christmas Card

Finding inspiration from the catalogs and what Stampin’ Up! makes creating easy.

In the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog I saw how Stampin’ Up! combined the Beautiful World Bundle with the Christmas sentiment Peace on Earth and I thought it was so clever.

I’ve also seen a number of demos water color the globe and wanted to try my hand at it.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I embossed a front panel of the same size using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and did a watercolor wash using Pacific Point ink.  I cut it out, as well as a globe from Old Olive cardstock and stand from Basic Black cardstock using the World Map Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and I snipped the ends in a banner.

The Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set will be available beginning Aug 4th.

Lastly I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a scalloped Old Olive touch for under the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! NEW Peaceful Nativity Card

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

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took a shorter panel of it and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then stamped the sentiment from the For Unto Us Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the card.  I covered the seam with some ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim.

I stamped the images from the Peaceful Nativity Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and after I colored them cut them out using the Nativity Dies, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored it in using the Soft Suede (manger), Crumb Cake (manger), Balmy Blue (light for Mary’s head piece and dark for her dress), Mossy Meadow (Joseph’s cloke), Gray Granite (donkey and a little on lamb), Ivory (skin), and Bronze (hair) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebration Tidings Always Grateful Card

Fall is my favorite time of the year to stamp.

And although we’re not there yet, I am having so much fun getting a head start on my fall/winter cards and projects now thanks to the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

It will be available beginning Aug 4th to customers.  Want to order everything now?  Order the Starter Kit and preorder from it.

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry.  I then took a pattern from the NEW Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and used one of the NEW Celebration Labels Dies to cut out a section out of the middle.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

The great thing about these dies is that it stitches the inside, as well as the outside, so although it’s really subtle, there’s a stitch on the Plaid Tidings DSP.

I then stamped the top image with the pumpkin and the bottom image with just the leaves in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I left about a 1″ space for the sentiment to go between them.  I colored it in using Pumpkin Pie (pumpkin), Old Olive (leaves), and sprigs (Rich Razzleberry) Stampin’ Blends.

I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Rich Razzleberry cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heated it with the Heat Tool.  I snipped the ends in a banner and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Press On Card

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

I decided to use the brand new Press On Stamp Set for today’s card.  It’s in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and will be available beginning Aug 4th.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the coffee beans from the Press On Stamp Set across it in Pool Party cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in the corner in Just Jade ink and matted this on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I stamped the coffee cup in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the coffee cup again on a pattern of Just Jade DSP and fussy cut it out to adhere over the cup.

I stamped the heart in Pacific Point ink and fussy cut it out to adhere over the cup.  I then adhered the cup down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I added a few Just Jade Enamel Dots to the card.
