Stampin’ Up! Christmas Card

Today’s joint blog hop is both a color and sketch challenge.  We could either use one or both.  I chose to use the color challenge (as I got just about done with the card and forgot it was a sketch challenge too).

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I then layered it with two patterns from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  I covered the seam with Gray Granite Ribbon.

Using the Layering Oval Framelits, I cut out a large oval from Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set to stamp the houses in Cherry Cobbler ink, trees in Mossy Meadow ink, and Santa in Gray Granite ink across it.

I cut out a scalloped oval using the same Layering Ovals Framelits from Mossy Meadow cardstock to layer underneath the scene.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Enjoy!

PRODUCT LIST:

SNEAK PEEK Humming Along Stamp Set

Today’s card uses a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper!

These are items from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and will be available to customers January 3rd.

I received both the stamp set and paper for free at OnStage this past weekend and I couldn’t wait to crack them open.

My card today starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper is 6″x6″ paper and includes four colors: Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist.  One side is a wider gingham and the backside a tighter gingham.

Next I stamped the flower in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  It comes from the Humming Along Stamp Set which also features a hummingbird, a leaf, and great sentiments.  It coordinates with the Hummingbird Framelits Dies.

I colored the hibiscus in using the Light Lovely Lipstick (inner part of flower), Light Flirty Flamingo (to blend the pink and yellow together), Dark and Light Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green (stem and leaf) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment next to it in Memento Black ink.  I matted this on Lovely Lipstick cardstock and wrapped some Granny Apple Green ribbon around it.

Enjoy!


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

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.

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!

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure – Happy Inkin’ Thursday

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

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  Around it I wound some Very Vanilla Cotton Twine.

Next I cut out a Very Vanilla oval using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I stamped the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.  When I put the stamp on the block, I sort of maneuvered it so it would wrap around.  The photopolymer stamps are great for this!

Over the twine I adhered another pattern from the Festive Farmhouse DSP in a banner.

Next I cut out a sleigh from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Alpine Sports Thinlits.

Next I stamped the wreath from the Alpine Adventures Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and the holly over it in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut it out with the same thinlits.  I added a Cherry Cobbler ribbon over the wreath.

Enjoy!

I then cut out three patterns from the Best Route Designer Series Paper to go over the Whisper White.

Stampin’ Up! Falling For Leaves – Thinking of You

As we speak I am away at a scrapbooking retreat.

As much as I love card making, scrapbooking is my first love, but I really only work on it during this weekend away.

I work on three different books – one for each of my kids.  I plan on posting pictures along the way on my Facebook page, so be sure to swing by to see what I’m working on.

My card today starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I next stamped the Buffalo Check stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I wrapped a Mint Macaron bow around the card front.  This ribbon is part of the Nature’s Twine pack.

Using the Detailed Leaf Thinlits, I cut out the bottom leaf from Crumb Cake cardstock and the top (more detailed) leaf from Crushed Curry cardstock.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Falling For Leaves Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I used the same framelits to cut out a Mint Macaron scalloped circle.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

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!
