Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Free Skate

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you all were able to do something fun and exciting.

For today’s card I used a new set to me from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted it or not.  I love the set, but I had to be sure I would use it enough.  I’m really happy I decided to get it.  Here’s my card.

My sketch and colors were inspired by Colours & Sketches Challenge #345 – Double.  I didn’t have their exact colors, but they said we could use similar.  Here is their challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies and cutting Rococo Rose cardstock for the solid skate and Rose Glimmer Paper for the detailed skate.  I cut the skate blades out of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I first cut the blade off the solid skate using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the detail skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the blade to the bottom of the detailed skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the Seaside Spray panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment and adhered it below the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the front of the Thick Whisper White card base using the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I adhered the card front to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pretty Peacocok Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Free Skate stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink all around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skate image from the Free Skate stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween my fellow stampers!  It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone created with these colors.  Here is what I came up with.

Here are our colors for this week.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #175.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the main part of the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the tree and pompom on his hat I colored with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and the tree trunk I colored with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the snowman’s nose, hat and scarf in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scalloped circle cut from my Layering Circles Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper under the sentiment using Snail.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink and once over the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink stamping off once.  I added 2 thin strips of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pengiun Frost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  We’re half way through already, which means the weekend is right around the corner.  In just a little over 2 weeks I will be leaving for OnStage in Hartford.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with some of my team members and seeing the next Occasions Catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by my Upline’s weekly challenge she had for us.  I did both the color and sketch on the same card.  Here’s my card.

Here are her colors and sketch she gave to us to work from.

I used a technique I haven’t done in a while.  I used my Sponge Brayer on the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to change the background to Mossy Meadow.  Once I had it the shade I liked, I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the penguin image from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I stamped the scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the penguin image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and I fussy cut the scarf and hat using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon on the card front using Snail and adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from scraps of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut the swirls out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies from a scrap of Real Red Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the boughs under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the swirls over the boughs using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I had colored using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Gleaming Lots of Cheer

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  Hope you all have a very productive one.  We’re nearing the end of the month and the beginning of the next, so I’ll be working more than normal.

For today’s card I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalog and one from the Holiday Catalog along with some of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

For today, I played along with the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #216.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a thick Very Vanilla card  base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the ornament image from the Stampin’ Up Lots of Cheer Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I carefully colored the ornament in using my Dark Night of Navy and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the ornament out using my Paper Snips.

I stamped a couple of the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Versamark Ink next to the stamped boughs.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to a Copper Foil Sheet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 thin strips of Copper Foil Sheet to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the ornament by the boughs and on the foil strips using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the ornament image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off 3 times, to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set over the ornament image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the ornament image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Inks on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Toile Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you were able to make some time for yourselves.

I have a very clean and simple, quick and easy card for you today using some Designer Series Paper.   My card also uses the least amount of colors I have every made a card with, 2.  My cards usually have a minimum of 3 colors, but I wanted to try something a little different than my normal.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #408.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #244.  Here’s their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Garden Green Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Garden Green Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Toile Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Merry Christmas for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us once again, have we made any plans?  Another weekend I will be working.

Today I used the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper to do most of the work for my card.  I also pulled out a stamp set and dies from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look.

Isn’t this paper stunning?  I started by embossing a Purple Posy card base using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I also embossed the band across the front of the card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to my thin Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the band to the back of the card base, so that it wrapped around the front, using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White card base to the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 thin strips of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to either side of the thin card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom front of the DSP in Smoky Slate Ink.

I cut the Merry sentiment out of Silver Foil Sheet using the Merry Christmas Dies and adhered it to the band using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front to add a little more sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll images from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Purple Posy Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

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