Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend once again. We’ve had a bit of a heat wave again here. I think we hit 98 with the real feel of 107. I’m loving it!!! The only thing that could be better is if I was walking along the beach while it’s this hot.

Last night we had our Stamp Camp class. The ladies had fun making 4 cards and a gift box. My card for today was originally going to be a card we were making, but I changed my mind the last minute. We’ll be making this card at another class since I already have everything cut and ready to go. And yes, Christmas in July, I gave in!! Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Bundle along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I wrapped a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the bottom of the panel and adhered it in the back with a little Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 stockings from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the stockings out using my Christmas Trimmings Dies and adhered them to the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a little sprig from a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet using my Christmas Trimmings Dies and adhered it under the stocking using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow using the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it to the stocking using a Glue Dot. I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stocking image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on either side of the sentiment . I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stocking image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front and adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas 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!!
