Stampin’ Up! Sounds of The Season

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Today is the first day in months that I am home alone.  My husband had to go into the office, my son is at work and my daughter is house sitting at my nieces.  It’s just me and my dog for the day.  I can have some peace and quiet.  I love being in the house alone in silence.  I am so looking forward to just doing my own thing today without being interrupted.

For today I played with a new set to me and made you a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from ‘Just Us Girls’ color challenge # 549.  As soon as I saw their colors I thought they would make a beautiful Christmas card. Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #543.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the returning Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Merry Merlot card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set on the top of the rectangle panel in Merry Merlot Ink and adhered it to the card front between the 2 panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it near the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 3 bells out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Sounds of the Season Dies.  I cut the boughs from the Sounds of the Season Dies out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock along with just the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves.  I cut the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves out of a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock also.  I wanted the holly from the Pretty Peacock panel and the berries from the Merry Merlot panel.  I inserted the holly and berries into the gold bells keeping them in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the bells.  I adhered the center bell pieces which I had cut from  the Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock card stock, in the center of the bells using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I attached a piece of the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, around the top of the bells.  I adhered the bells to the Shimmery White stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock pine boughs to the top of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the gold trim to the back of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I tied a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the circle using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish The Season Cling Stamp Set to the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Merry Merlot Ink.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the panel.  I stamped the smallest bell from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the smallest bell from Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

I’m cleaning my shelves and drawers out to make room for lots of new goodie.  I have my list right HERE and I’m trying to keep it up to date.   Check it out and let me know if there is anything you’d like to get.  If you are looking for something and don’t see it on the list, drop me a line and I will look through my stash to see if I missed it.  I have lots of older DSP too that I don’t have listed if there is any that you are looking for.
