Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Good Friday morning everyone.  Hope you’ve had a productive week and are making some fun plans for the weekend.  I know I am.  If you live in the Central New Jersey area, this Sunday November 18th, I will be at a Holiday Craft Show at Immaculata High School in Somerville. Please stop by to say ‘Hi”.  I have some great teacher gifts and stocking stuffers.  I have 2 baskets filled with Stampin’ Up products that I will be raffling off and over 100 cards that I will be selling.

My card for today features the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set.  I love all the images in this set, but especially the bow.  Take a look

I started with a panel from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder using my Big Shot.  I adhered it to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the bow on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Merry Merlot Ink and fussy cut it.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the bow to the wreath.  I adhered the artwork to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Merry Merlot.  I made a banner from the sentiment and sponged it with Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered the banner to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I first stamped the bow from Wishing You Well stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping it off twice, in the center a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink over the top of the bow.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bow from Wishing You Well stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink and Tranquil Tide Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card, it was another quick and easy one, I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Soft Sea Foam Snow Is Glistening Christmas Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is moving right along

For my card today I was inspired by a wonderful team member Amy Koenders.  I loved her design so much I had to CASE it.  You can see Amy’s card here.  I used the Stampin’ Up Snow Is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall Thinlits Dies for my card.  These items are only available until November 30th.  Take a look.

I started with a small piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock (unfortunately the soft sea foam doesn’t show up as well as I hoped in the pictures) and adhered a piece of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I took another piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed piece to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the small piece with the DSP to the left side of the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Silver & Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card front twice and tied a bow.

I cut one of the snowflakes from Snowfall Thinlits Dies in Shimmery White cardstock and a smaller snowflake out in Silver Foil.  I adhered the Silver Foil snowflake to the Shimmery White snowflake using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the snowflakes to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added a Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the snowflake.  I stamped one of the smaller snowflakes from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the Joy over the snowflake in Shaded Spruce Ink and sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the circle from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center.  I stamped a couple of the snowflakes in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and adhered it to the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with Soft Sea Foam snowflakes.  I adhered a piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today,  I hope you liked my card.  I love cards with a lot of layers and this was one of my favorites to do.  I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Snow Is Glistening for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning everyone and welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays”.  We can interpret this any way we want – so be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a group of very talented ladies hopping with us this month!

For my card today I used the Snow Is Glistening stamp set that is only available until November 30th.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Vellum cardstock and stamped the tree from Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Velum panel to a Gold Foil Sheet mat using Glue Dots. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over the tree to decorate it.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out the Merry from Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies and 2 of the smallest snowflakes from Snowfall Thinlits Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Merry across the tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the snowflakes to the top of the tree using Glue Dots.  Using my Big Shot again, I ran a Real Red card front through using my Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the Real Red card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped Christmas from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Real Red Ink on a piece of Gold Metallic-Edged Ribbon.  I wrapped the ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Real Red Ink.  I stamped one of the scrolls under the sentiment in Real Red Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then adhered it to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I stamped the tree from Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Real Red Ink on the front left of a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.

Stampin’ Up Snow Is Glistening Christmas Pines Christmas Card

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope your weekend was awesome and you did something fun.  Here we go with the start of another week.  I don’t know about you, but these weeks are just flying by.  OnStage was awesome.  Wait till you see all the new products coming out and the great Sale-A-Bration items.  I’ll have some sneak peaks in the next coming weeks.

For today’s card I used the Snow Is Glistening stamp set again.  I really love all these snowflakes in this set.  Don’t forget this set along with the other items from the Snowflake Showcase products are only available this month.

I started with a Balmy Blue card front and stamped the Noel from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom.  I sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Powder Pink mat using Snail.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out the largest snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies in a White Velvet Sheet.  I cut the medium snowflake out from my Rose Glimmer Paper and I cut the smallest snowflake out from a White Velvet Sheet.  I adhered the snowflakes together using Glue Dots then adhered them above the Noel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added 2 Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Star from the center of the medium snowflake to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the blizzard snow fall image from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Powder Pink Ink using my Stamparatus, across the top. Still using my Stamparatus I stamped the lighter snowfall image below the blizzard in Powder Pink Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on top of the snow.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail and then to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I stamped the small and medium snowflakes from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Powder Pink Ink and Balmy Blue ink on a Medium Whisper White Envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Detailed Baubles Snowflake Sentiments Holiday Card

Good Thursday morning everyone.  The week is starting to wind down, hope you are making some fun plans for the weekend.  I’m still in Orlando and having a great time.

For today’s card I made you a quick and easy one using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies and the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.  Take a look.

I started with a Mint Macaron card front and stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the bottom. I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 2 of the ornaments from Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies, one in the Rose Glimmer Paper and the other in Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  I attached a piece of Rose Metallic Thread to the top of each ornament and using multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the ornaments to the card front.  I tacked the Rose Metallic Thread on the back of the card front with Snail.

I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 of the Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card front.

On the inside on a panel of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center.  I stamped a couple of the swirls from the same stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the swirls from Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on  the front and flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope.

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