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.

SNEAK PEEK Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty Collage Card

Today I’m featuring a brand new stamp set that I received this past week at OnStage.

It’s called “Parisian Beauty” and features really sweet Parisian-themed images perfect for a collage-type card.

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  Next I cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, later to be matted on Sahara Sand cardstock.

On the Whisper White cardstock, I first stamped the script image multiple times in Petal Pink ink.  I stamped the other “stamp” like and Eiffel Tower images in Sahara Sand over that.

I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I tucked some Petal Pink ribbon behind it and added a few of Champagne Rhinestones (January 3, 2010) next to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Monochromatic Still Scenes Christmas Card

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

I really love monochromatic cards and even more so simple, white and gold cards.  When I saw the sketch I immediately thought – Still Scenes Bundle.

But I was inspired by this card and how the inside sort of pops through the front.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took the “circle like” die from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies and cut out a window from the top.  I used the same dies and cut out the church, the other building and the church from Whisper White cardstock.

I cut out Gold foil pieces to go behind the buildings.  I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects on the trees and sprinkled it with Ice Stampin’ Glitter.  I adhered them down over one another on the inside of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same die that cut out the hole to cut out a hole from Gold Foil.  Then I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out around the cut out to make a frame.  I also used the same dies to cut out two sets of the snow globe base.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Dashing Deer Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art Thank You Card

In just a few hours I’ll be headed to Hartford, CT for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  Don’t forget to follow my Facebook and Instagram pages as I’ll be posting lots of pics (including sneak peeks).

I’m super excited as this is my first year attending CentreStage, an event on Friday night for demonstrators that hold the title Silver Elite or higher.

I would just like to take a moment to say thank you to all my customers and team for helping me achieve this milestone – it means the world to me!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the pens from the It Starts With Art Stamp Set on it in Bermuda Bay ink and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the ribbon image in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Highland Heather, Bermuda Bay, and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered this down on a circle of Highland Heather cardstock cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered across the bottom a Gorgeous Grape pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink, fussy cutting out the words and adhering them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a few Gorgeous Grape rhinestones in the corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made at my October stamp class.

It uses the Merry Moose Stamp Set and the masking technique to take a Christmas card and make it a birthday card.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Plans Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the tree on it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off first).  I covered the “Christmas” on the sentiment stamp from the Merry Moose Stamp Set with washi tape.  I inked it up with Cherry Cobbler ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on the circle.

I cut out the “birthday” from the Well Written Dies from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Next I stamped the outline of the moose in Soft Suede ink and the inside image in Crumb Cake ink.  I cut it out using the Moose Punch.  I stamped the scarf in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut it out.

Enjoy!
