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! Long and Slim In The Pines Card

I usually stick to traditional cards.
Sometimes I’ll vary and make square cards, sometimes note cards, but if anything, I go smaller.

For today I did my very first long and slim card and I love how it came out!

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  The card base measures 7 x 8-1/2, scored at 3-1/2.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the trees in Mossy Meadow from the In The Pines Stamp Set.  I stamped off first for the lighter shade of green.  I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Both stamp sets are available beginning Aug 4th!

I then matted this on a panel of Gold Foil.  I wrapped around some Gold ribbon in a knot, tying a Gold thread bow in the knot.

PS – I LOVE this gold thread.  It has a lot of “oomph” (technical term) and holds a great bow!  Get a sampling of it in my Product Share – last day to order one!

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

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World – Peace on Earth Christmas Card

Finding inspiration from the catalogs and what Stampin’ Up! makes creating easy.

In the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog I saw how Stampin’ Up! combined the Beautiful World Bundle with the Christmas sentiment Peace on Earth and I thought it was so clever.

I’ve also seen a number of demos water color the globe and wanted to try my hand at it.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I embossed a front panel of the same size using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and did a watercolor wash using Pacific Point ink.  I cut it out, as well as a globe from Old Olive cardstock and stand from Basic Black cardstock using the World Map Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and I snipped the ends in a banner.

The Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set will be available beginning Aug 4th.

Lastly I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a scalloped Old Olive touch for under the sentiment.
