Stampin’ Up! First Frost Congratulations Card

As I write this post it is snowing so beautifully here in Upstate New York.

I know many aren’t a fan, but I always figure, if we’re going to have the cold, it might as well be beautiful with snow!

Is it sunny and warm where you are?  Or cold and full on winter?

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the vine twice in Pear Pizzazz ink.  Then I matted it on Petal Pink cardstock.

I used the Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut out the Whisper White frame, as well as the sprigs from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and Gold Foil.  I adhered some Gold Mini Sequin Trim and a piece of the *new* Whisper White Flax Ribbon (coming Jan 3rd).

I stamped the flowers in Petal Pink ink and cut them out with the same framelits and stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink as well.  Lastly I added a few Gold Sequins around the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost – CTS295

The next two weeks are going to be quite busy for me.

This week I head out for a scrapbooking getaway and next week I’ll be in Orlando for OnStage with Stampin’ Up!

I plan on posting lots of pictures along the way of both so be sure to “like” my Facebook page so you can follow along!

My card today is a simple and sweet one using the First Frost Bundle.  It starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the “vine” image from the First Frost Stamp Set in Mint Macaron three times in the left hand corner.  I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink underneath it.

The Whisper White cardstock got matted on Merry Merlot cardstock.  Next I used the Frosted Bouquet Thinlits to cut out two sprigs from Petal Pink cardstock.

I stamped two flowers in Merry Merlot and Petal Pink ink and cut them out with the same thinlits.

I added a Mint Macaron bow and a few rhinestones to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a joint hop with the Happy Stampers.  We could choose from either of the challenges below, and I thought I could easily work them together.

My card starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock.  Over that I adhered a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the First Frost Stamp Set to stamp the large flower in Merry Merlot ink around the outside.  I matted this on Copper Foil.

Before adhering this down, I wound underneath a piece of Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon and then tied a bow to go next to the sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment from the First Frost Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I wound some Copper Thread underneath it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
