Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate”.

I decided to make a card celebrating friendship during the holidays.

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I then took a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check Stamp Set in Memento Black ink over it.  I then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Foliage Frame Framelits to cut out a frame (Soft Suede) and other floral details to go behind it (Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Pool Party).  I also added some Burlap Ribbon behind it all.

Next I cut out a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and the pinecone in Soft Suede ink (stamping off twice first).

Lastly, I added a Cherry Cobbler bow to finish it off and adhered everything down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure – Thinking of You

Hello friends.

I am in full Christmas mode over here – shopping, baking, and trying to get in the overall spirit.

And yes, still making Christmas cards.  Believe it or not, I’m still a bunch short.

My card today starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I took a Stamping Sponge and used Soft Suede ink to add some dark color to the edge of the card front.

I then took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  I took the same sponge and added Soft Suede color to the outside of this as well and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set and stamped the snow shoes in Soft Suede ink.  I used the masking technique to give the impression that one was over the other. I then fussy cut this out and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Real Red ink, cut out two snowflakes using the Alpine Sports Thinlits, and added a Real Red bow over the snowshoes.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines Christmas Card

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

My card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Mossy Meadow cardstock.

On the Whisper White, I used the Christmas Pines stamp set and stamped the pines in Mossy Meadow ink.  I also cut out a bunch of pines from Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock using the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then matted this on Gold Foil and wound behind it some Gold Thread.

I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to create a pinecone using Early Espresso cardstock and Gold Foil.  I tied a Linen Thread bow over the top of it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Baubles Christmas Card

I was stumped with today’s card.

I didn’t know whether I should use Cherry Cobbler or Real Red cardstock, so I took to my Facebook page for help.

Although there were a few Real Red fans, Cherry Cobbler won hands down.

So my card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I embossed using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Beautiful Baubles Stamp Set to stamp the ornaments all along it.  I stamped them in Versamark ink, sprinkled them with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted this on Gold Foil.

I wrapped around the panel some Cherry Cobbler Cotton Thread.  I tied a bow and attached a piece of Mini Sequin Trim.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Gold Foil, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods – Thinking Of You

Today’s card is part of this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  It’s a beautiful inspiration challenge and there’s plenty to pick from for the challenge.

Be sure to head over and participate!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I used the Winter Woods Stamp Set to stamp the tree along the card front in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Next I used the coordinating In The Woods Framelits to cut the “mound of snow” from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink in the one corner.

Next I used the Blizzard Thinlits to cut out a bunch of different sized snowflakes to mimic a “mound of snow.”

I used both Rhinestones and Frosted Epoxy Droplets for the center of some of the snowflakes.

Enjoy!

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!
