Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Christmas

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  My daughter is coming home today, YAY!!!  She’s great being away for the first few days, by mid week she’s ready to come home.  It’ll be great having her back.  For the first time in 36 years that I’ve been working at the store I messed up.  I got up, dressed and went into work yesterday, just like I do every weekend.  The difference was that I wasn’t scheduled to work until today.  I make the monthly schedule up for everyone and I couldn’t remember that I wasn’t working.  I felt so foolish, but at the same time, I had a nice early start to my day yesterday.  I’ll be at work all day today, we double checked the schedule to make sure 😉

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you using another new set from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #519.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #470.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Seal.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the candle image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set on top of the candles in So Saffron Ink.  I colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Marker and the center one in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the images again on another panel of Whisper White cardstock, colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.

I embossed a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 fussy cut candles to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Seaside Spray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the image out using one of the dies from the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front, sneaking it just under the artwork, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink and colored it in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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