Stampin’ Up! Team Card – Celebration Tidings

This past Sunday our Stampin’ Up! team had a virtual get together.

Four of us shared cards we made using the Celebration Tidings Bundle, and I had the pleasure of sharing today’s Christmas card.

It’s just a great team to be part of, and it’s ever growing.  Right now there’s a great deal with the Grab & Go Starter Kit and we would love for you to join the team!  Don’t wait -reach out to me for more details.  I’d love for you to join us at our next get together.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I embossed using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (matted on Whisper White) and a smaller one from Shaded Spruce cardstock (adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals).

Next I stamped the “floral” image from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using the Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the Celebration Labels Dies.

*Note:  When positioning it, the floral image should be at the bottom of die.

I folded it over and then stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set on the inside in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Christmas Card

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

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock, which I adhered a pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.

I then took another pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and matted it on Real Red cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Pine Woods Dies to cut out a tree from Gold Foil to adhere next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Video Tutorial

I’ll be back again tonight at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page with a card using product from the Snowflake Splendor Suite.  Catch it live and you might just win the card!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Welcome Card

We have a new color challenge for you this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I was so inspired by them!

Be sure to play along with us this week!

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

You really can’t tell in the picture (and barely in person) but I did stamp the smaller sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on the Whisper White in Versamark ink.

I then took a pattern from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower and leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Stazon ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used a Water Painter to color them in using Cinnamon Cider, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake ink.  I cut them out using the coordinating Sunflower Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Simple Joyful Holly with Gold Touches Christmas Card

I love traditional colors for Christmas cards.

My favorite is red and gold – just like I decorate my house for Christmas.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then stamped one of the holly images from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Versamark ink in two corners of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then matted this on Gold Foil and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Under the sentiment, I folded over some Gold ribbon and wound some Gold thread in it.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock and embossed it using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.

Next I stamped the coffee cup from the Press On Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored in the bottom part of it using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and I fussy cut it out.

I stamped the same coffee cup on a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock, fussy cut out the middle part, and embossed it with the same embossing folder as above, adhering it onto the coffee cup.

I stamped the sentiment from the Press On Stamp Set in Merry Merlot ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered the coffee cup over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals

Lastly, under the square I adhered a Crumb Cake pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper pack.

Stampin’ Up! Trio of Peace & Joy Card Video Tutorial

I love bubble matting around words…
And usually have to fussy cut to get the effect.

However, the Peace & Joy Bundle is so fun that it creates the bubbling around the words peace, joy, and bright for you.
And you can layer them up in so many different ways.

Last week for my Facebook live, I did a trio of cards – you might say, something for everyone!

A simple card for a beginner stamper (or someone short on time), a card for an intermediate stamper who likes a simpler card and has a few techniques under their belt, and a card for an avid stamper – someone who wants all the bells and whistles.

They all use the same basic layout and design, but at the same time, three different cards.

Be sure to join me tonight at 7:30 EST on my Facebook page for another live tutorial!  I’m going to be using the Stitched Triangles Dies and making simple, artistic cards.

If you’ve ever missed a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube Channel.

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Card

I hope those of you in the United States have a great and safe Labor Day today!

Hope it’s restful…
and maybe you get some stamping time in for yourself too.

My card today starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock.  I then took a Cinnamon Cider pattern from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I inked up the two leaves from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set in Bumblebee ink using a dauber.  Using a dauber allows for less ink to get on the stamp which makes a more crisp stamped image when using a Distinktive stamp, such as the Love of Leaves.

I cut the leaves out with the coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a Cinnamon Cider knot over the one leaf.

I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider ink, but used the Washi Tape technique to cover and ink up part of the sentiment at a time in order to make the sentiment one long sentence as opposed to two.

I then added two Bumblebee Enamel Dots next to the sentiment.
