Stampin’ Up! Warmth & Cheer

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

fms259

I recently purchased the Warmth & Cheer DSP and it has immediately become my favorite paper to use (you’ll see it a couple of times this week).  I love each pattern.  They make me feel warm and cozy, like I should be drinking hot cocoa when using them.

My card uses the Delightful Dijon as a base and then one of the cozy patterns from the Warmth & Cheer DSP over it.  I took another pattern (this one Whisper White and Delightful Dijon) to layer over it and then a strip of Garden Green.

I created the layering in the middle using the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set which I stamped the deer stamp in Versamark and then heat embossed it in white on Basic Black to make it really pop!  The deer got cut using the Laying Circles and was adhered over scalloped Delightful Dijon cardstock and then that over a Delicate Doily.

To finish off the card, I heat embossed in white over Garden Green the sentiment, also from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Wonder of Christmas

For today’s card share I’m using the beautiful Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set.  I love this set because I just think the angel is so sweet and I loved the different sentiments it came with.

For the card description, I’m going to work my way backwards because honestly, that’s how the card developed.

I started with my angel.  She was stamped in Stazon Black (permanent ink, which allows for water coloring).  I then used the aqua painters and Marina Mist for her dress and shoes, Garden Green for the banner, Daffodil Delight for her wings, and Crumb Cake for her hair and body.  Next I fussy cut her out.

Wonder of Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I wanted her to really pop, so I cut out a Daffodil Delight scalloped circle and stamped it with the star (included in the Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set) in Daffodil Delight and adhere the angel to it.

Next, I layered a pattern from the This Christmas DSP over some Whisper White and tied a Gold Baker’s Twine Bow around it from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack.

Wonder of Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Last but not least, I used Garden Green as my background and heat embossed in gold the sentient “The Lord is Come” and then stamped in Garden Green some more stars all around.

Enjoy!

Penned & Painted

So low and behold this card was supposed to be my Monday post, but, well, it just didn’t happen.  My inspiration came from the Freshly Make Sketches Challenge (which is now closed, oh well).

FMS246

This card was interesting – yes that word – it’s neither good nor bad.  I originally had one idea involving vellum and I thought it’d be pretty cool – a play on the tag and negative space.  Well voila that didn’t happen.

So this was Plan B.

My card starts with a base of Peekaboo Peach layered with some Whisper White.

Penned & Painted - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I first stamped the two-layered flowers from the Penned & Painted Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach (first stamping off for the lighter color)  Then I cut a 2″ tag from Whisper White and layered it over a bit of the flowers.  That way when I stamped the black outline it would cover both the tag and the card itself.  Before adhering the stamp I layered it over some Peekaboo Peach as well and strung some Black Thick Baker’s Twine through the top.

Penned & Painted - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For the sentiment detail, I first stamped the sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach and then used the dotted stamp included in the Penned & Painted Stamp Set to stamp around the sentiment, stamping off for the dots and then full strength for the overlapped flower.

Penned & Painted - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin UpBefore I adhered the sentiment detail, I layered it over some Peekaboo Peach cardstock and snuck in behind it some Black Thick Baker’s Twine.

Enjoy!

Flourish Thinlits Celebrate Card

For today’s card share, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches  layout challenge.

FMS Final 245-001For my take on the sketch, I started with a base of Night of Navy.  I then layered a pattern from the Affectionately Yours DSP over some Sahara Sand.  I then placed some Night of Navy ribbon across the top-ish (yes, that’s a technical term) of the card to act as the “divide.”  Next I cut a 1/2″ Sahara Sand strip of cardstock and 1/4″ Night of Navy strip of cardstock and layered them over some Mint Macaron cardstock to be my rectangular focus (yes, another technical term).

Flourish Thinlits - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I cut out three stems/leaves from the Flourish Thinlits again going with the color scheme of Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, and Mint Macaron and layered them to the right of the card.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment “Celebrate” from the Thoughtful Banners in Night of Navy over Sahara Sand and cut it out with the coordinating Duet Banner Punch included in the bundle.

Enjoy!

May Flowers Framelits

Today’s card layout is inspired by the Freshly Make Sketches challenge this week.

FMS Final 242-001Between yesterday’s card and today’s card, I’m really trying to set up my card differently than my usual way.  Usually I start with a base card and layer another color over that on, etc.

So today I started with a base color of Perfect Plum – And left it at that – Eek!  I did use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Perfect Plum to create some background to the flowers.

May Flowers - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For the focal point of the card, I cut out two flowers (bigger one in Sweet Sugarplum, smaller in PerfectPlum) and two leaves (one in Garden Green, the other in Old Olive) and layered them over some silver ribbon.  I stamped the Hello from the Banners for You stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum.

Enjoy!

Sweet Cupcake Birthday Card

Freshly Made Sketches challenges are fun to play along with because they are clean, crisp designs.  This week was no different.

FMS Final 241-001For today’s card share, I went for another one of the new, amazing bundles – The Sweet Cupcake Bundle.  I started with a base of color of Pool Party and then cut out two “swirlies” in Whisper White and placed them at the bottom of the card.

Sweet Cupcake - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To make my cupcake, I used two colors, Bermuda Bay for the cupcake holder and Flirty Flamingo for the frosting (stamping off once for the lighter shade).  I used the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits which is included in the bundle to cut them out.  I stamped the sentiment which is from the Sweet Cupcake bundle in Bermuda Bay and then added a few white sequins to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Freshly Made Sketches 233

I loved this week’s challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.FMS Final 233-001I decided to let the beautiful Bohemian DSP and the bright colors in it make all the statements for this card.  I used a base of Bermuda Bay and then layered it with Whisper White and a pattern from the Bohemian DSP.

Bohemian - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The half circle, as well as the horizontal lines all showcase the bright colors in this Designer Series Paper.  This is why I love, love, love Stampin’ Up!  All the colors match and coordinate perfectly!  For the horizontal strip, I layered Rich Razzleberry over Blackberry Bliss.  For the half circle, I layered Delightful Dijon over Bermuda Bay – all colors in the DSP.

The sentiment comes from a recent Sale-a-bration stamp set and was stamped in Island Indigo.  I added a small candy dot to finish it off.

I used the Pretty Petals DSP for my patterns over a Basic Black cardstock base.  I used one of the vines from the Botanical Builder Framelits to give the side angle.
