Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas

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

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and a smaller panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed them using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Before adhering layering them, I put a piece of Pool Party Ribbon between them.

Next I stamped the snowman and reindeer from the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set/Bundle in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using the new and gorgeous Stampin Blend markers.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive.  I cut them out with the Seasonal Tags Framelits.

Using the same Seasonal Tag Framelits, I cut out a few snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock and adhered them around the snowman and reindeer.  I then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and manipulated the cardstock to “roll.”  I put a dimensional under the words and at the end of the banner and adhered it down.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Chums

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s MFT Card Sketch Challenge.

Today’s card starts off with Basic Black cardstock with a pattern from the Spooky Nights DSP adhered over the card front.  I then took another pattern and matted it on some Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the pumpkin from the Seasonal Chums stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored it in using the brand new Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers.  I used the Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive markers to color it in.

What I like about the markers after playing with them for a bit is: 1. They can be used with Whisper White paper – no watercolor paper needed; 2. They don’t leave lines when coloring in; 3. They’re forgiving – I’m by no means an expert in coloring and I found them easy to use; 4. A Color Lifter was offered for any “oops” you may make.  As soon as they are available to customers I promise to let you know!

The Stampin’ Blends will be available to all customers to purchase beginning November 1st!!

I fussy cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth of the Jack-o-lantern and cut out a small piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock to adhere to the back of it.  I cut out the pumpkin and the leaves (Old Olive cardstock) using the Seasonal Tags framelits.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Pumpkin Pie and snipped the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Chums

Today’s card is a simple, but cute Halloween card.  I recently won this fun Seasonal Chums Bundle from the *best* upline ever Amy.  We have a great, great team and if you’d like more information on what joining looks like, click here.

My card today starts with Old Olive cardstock.  I then took one panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut a circle out of it using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Now to get the circles cut out of the Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive cardstock so it aligned perfectly, I had to be a bit creative.  I put the Very Vanilla first over the Pumpkin Pie cardstock after having aligned them up – not adhering them yet.  I took a pencil and marked in four spots where the circle would be and then took the Pumpkin Pie cardstock, lined up the framelit, and cut out the circle.  I did the same thing to the Old Olive cardstock.  I adhered a piece of Vellum paper between the Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then adhered everything together.

I cut out a strip from one of the patterns in the Spooky Nights DSP for my first layer.  Next I stamped the pumpkin in Archival Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  I colored it in using a Blender Pen and Pumpkin Pie (pumpkin), Daffodil Delight (jack-o-lantern part), Old Olive (leaves), and Crumb Cake (stem) inks.  I cut it out and a few leaves from Old Olive cardstock using the Seasonal Tags framelits.  I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock in Old Olive ink and decorated the leaves around it.

Enjoy!

My whole purpose, really, in cutting out the circles from the framelits was to be able to have a cute detail on the inside of my card.  I added a strip of the same pattern from the Spooky Nights DSP and the back stamped and colored in version of the pumpkin.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
