Stampin’ Up! First Frost Best Wishes

Getting time to stamp is very important to me.
It’s a stress reliever and also a way to have some “me time.”

So when life gets super busy especially a week out from Christmas, it can be challenging for anyone to find time to stamp.

So in order to get stamping time, I keep cards and projects a little on the simpler side…

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the image from the First Frost stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink and then matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy and I hope you find time to stamp today, even if it’s a super simple something.   🙂

Stampin’ Up! Quick Christmas Card

The Designer Series Paper and Embellishments in the Holiday Catalog have been great!!

I didn’t want the last bits to go to waste, so I decided to use them up in a few last minute Christmas cards.

My card starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.

Next I took another pattern and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Labels to Love Stamp Set in Merry Merlot ink on Whisper White cardstock.

Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut two slits in either end of it and wound some beautiful Merry Merlot/Gold Ribbon through it.

I then tied a bow for the corner using the same ribbon and added a star embellishment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color sketched.  For the color of choice I used Petal Pink.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Next I put a panel of Gold Foil to the left of the card and added two Petal Pink sequins over it.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the gorgeous Stitched Labels Framelits.

Under the sentiment I adhered a piece of Whisper White Tulle Ribbon and Gold Cord.  The Petal Pink/Whisper White Baker’s Twine came from the Petal Pink/Silver Baker’s Twine and I just pulled out the Silver thread.  I adhered the frame down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate”.

I decided to make a card celebrating friendship during the holidays.

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I then took a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check Stamp Set in Memento Black ink over it.  I then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Foliage Frame Framelits to cut out a frame (Soft Suede) and other floral details to go behind it (Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Pool Party).  I also added some Burlap Ribbon behind it all.

Next I cut out a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and the pinecone in Soft Suede ink (stamping off twice first).

Lastly, I added a Cherry Cobbler bow to finish it off and adhered everything down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure – Thinking of You

Hello friends.

I am in full Christmas mode over here – shopping, baking, and trying to get in the overall spirit.

And yes, still making Christmas cards.  Believe it or not, I’m still a bunch short.

My card today starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I took a Stamping Sponge and used Soft Suede ink to add some dark color to the edge of the card front.

I then took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  I took the same sponge and added Soft Suede color to the outside of this as well and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set and stamped the snow shoes in Soft Suede ink.  I used the masking technique to give the impression that one was over the other. I then fussy cut this out and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Real Red ink, cut out two snowflakes using the Alpine Sports Thinlits, and added a Real Red bow over the snowshoes.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines Christmas Card

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

My card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Mossy Meadow cardstock.

On the Whisper White, I used the Christmas Pines stamp set and stamped the pines in Mossy Meadow ink.  I also cut out a bunch of pines from Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock using the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then matted this on Gold Foil and wound behind it some Gold Thread.

I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to create a pinecone using Early Espresso cardstock and Gold Foil.  I tied a Linen Thread bow over the top of it.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Baubles Christmas Card

I was stumped with today’s card.

I didn’t know whether I should use Cherry Cobbler or Real Red cardstock, so I took to my Facebook page for help.

Although there were a few Real Red fans, Cherry Cobbler won hands down.

So my card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I embossed using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Beautiful Baubles Stamp Set to stamp the ornaments all along it.  I stamped them in Versamark ink, sprinkled them with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted this on Gold Foil.

I wrapped around the panel some Cherry Cobbler Cotton Thread.  I tied a bow and attached a piece of Mini Sequin Trim.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Gold Foil, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!
