Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Card

This week of Thanksgiving always brings a time of reflection of all that I am thankful for and blessed with.

I am thankful for Stampin’ Up! and for the new friends it has brought me and the opportunity to take time for myself to make pretty things.  It is so much more than just stamps and paper.

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the different boughs from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink.  “Hanging” from them I stamped some pine cones in Soft Suede ink.  I then took a Blender Pen and pulled color from the stamped image to color them in.

I took a sponge and sort of “scraped” the edge with Soft Suede ink and matted it on Shaded Spruce cardstock.

At the top I wound around a Linen Thread bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card

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

I normally tend to use reds for Christmas cards, but today I’m embracing green for Christmas, specifically Shaded Spruce.

My card starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock and stamped two boughs from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set on it in Shaded Spruce ink.  I then layered this on Gold Foil and tied a Shaded Spruce/Gold bow around the front of the card.

Next I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  On it I first stamped one of the boughs from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Delicata Gold ink.  Over that I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card Video Tutorial

I really love this card that I created last week for my Facebook Live.

It was so fun to use the Snowfall Accent Puff Paint.

I paired the Puff Paint with the Peaceful Boughs Bundle which has beautiful rustic images.

I’ll be back tonight and the only thing I can say is…Jingle Bells.  Join me on my Facebook Page at 7:30 pm EST.  If you catch it live and leave a comment, at the end I’ll draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card!

If you ever miss any of videos, you can catch them on my YouTube channel.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card

I hope you had a lovely weekend.

It’s really starting to feel like fall here in Upstate New York and I LOVE it!!!

It just puts me in the stamping mood, so I was busy this weekend crafting.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then stamped the Birch Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

Next I adhered down a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and cut out boughs from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.

I stamped the pinecones from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink and cut them out with the same dies.  I added a Linen Thread bow over the one pinecone.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Enjoy!
