Stampin’ Up Christmas Pines Detailed Baubles For Global Design

Good Thursday morning everyone. Another week almost over. Anyone making plans for the weekend? Have you all gotten your shopping done? I sure haven’t.

For today’s card I joined in with the Global Design Project #167.  Be sure to stop by Global Design to play along and see what everyone has made.  This week was a Theme Challenge.

Here’s my card for the challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the pines from Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom and quickly sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Using my Big Shot I cut the round ornament from Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  If you like this Thinlit Die set, I’d head over to my online store ASAP.  It’s available at a discounted price right now along with many other items that are being retired.

I cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Detailed Baubles ornament to the Gold Foil circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I tied a piece of Tranquil Tide Bakers Twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, (also discounted in my online store), around the top of the ornament and made a double bow.  I adhered it to one of the pines using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the ornament to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 of the Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls around the ornament.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail then adhered it to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the pines from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the pines from Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the front left and the flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings For Freshly Made Sketches #365

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another week.

I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #365 for today’s card. Be sure to visit the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the beautiful projects made. Here is the sketch I worked from.

Here is what I came up with for the challenge. Take a look

I started with a piece of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I then adhered it onto a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I took a smaller piece of the Festive Farmhouse DSP and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I first stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off 3 times.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the tree.  I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler cotton twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine pack around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted DSP to the bottom right of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered the matted artwork to the top left card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels onto the card front.

 On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off 3 times, across the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the trees in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the panel to the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse 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 Christmas Pines for Inspire Create Challenge #031

Good Friday morning everyone.  Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?  Does everyone have lots of leftovers like me?  Well, Santa was at the end of the Macy’s Day Parade in NYC so that means that the Christmas season has begun at my house.  I’m so happy I decided not to go.  Although it was a beautiful sunny morning, it was only 20 degrees when it started.  Too cold for me to be standing outside.  Today we pack up all regular decorations and move furniture around .  My house becomes Christmas town.  How about yours?  Does everyone go all out decorating like me?  I redo EVERY room in my house.

For today’s card I played along with the Inspire. Create. Challenge #031.  Be sure to stop by the Inspire. Create blog and check out everyone’s projects.  This week they have a Colour Challenge and here are the great colors I got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand card front and stamped it with the Sheet Music Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then tore the edges all around the stamped image and sponged it with Sahara Sand Ink.

On a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Christmas Pines stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Using my Big Shot, I cut out the sentiment with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I adhered it to a Shaded Spruce mat, cut out from the Scallop Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, using Snail.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut out a few of the sprigs from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (only available until November 30, 2018), in Copper Foil Paper.  I adhered them under my sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a bow from the 1/4″ Copper Trim Ribbon and adhered it to the side of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I colored in a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Marker and attached them to the oval.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the Boughs image from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail then adhered it to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the front and back flap with the Boughs from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen for Global Designs and Sunday Stamps

Good Thursday Morning everyone and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!.  I’m very thankful for all of you, my followers.  I can’t express how much it means to me.  Hope you are all getting ready for your Thanksgiving dinner, if you have one.  By the time you are reading this, I am probably getting my turkey on the grill and starting all the other trimmings. Hope you all enjoy a wonderful day with family and friends.

For my card today I played along with 2 challenges.  I really like doing the challenges because it gives me a starting point.  Have you ever gotten that crafters block.  The challenges really help.  The 1st one I played along with is Global Designs Projects 165. Please be sure to stop by the Global Designs Projects to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.  Theirs is a color challenge, here are the colors I worked with

The next one I played along with is Sunday Stamps 192.  Be sure to stop by Sunday Stamps to see all the amazing projects that have been made.  Theirs is a sketch challenge, here is the sketch I worked with

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a piece of Neutrals Designer Paper in Crumb Cake in the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the skating snowman from the Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the snowman in using my Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot and Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies I cut the image out with the largest Square.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat, cut from the Layering Squared Framelits Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Tranquil Tide pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls as the snowman’s buttons.

On a narrow strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center.  I made a banner out of the strip using my Paper Snips and using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker I edged it.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 of the smallest snowflakes from Snowfall Thinlits Dies, (only available until November 30, 2018), out of Shimmery White cardstock  and adhered them to the sentiment banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the ice skating snowman from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the panel.  I stamped the holly and berries, from the same set, in the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink and colored the berries in using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up So Santa stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink over the snowman.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skating snowman on the bottom left of the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Neutrals DSP in Crumb Cake to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Sneak Peek for Freshly Made Sketches and Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenges

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start a short work week.  If you were able to stop by my booth at the Holiday Craft Show, thank you very much I really appreciate it.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just 3 days away.  I’ve got a lot of baking and cooking to get done before Thursday.  How about you?

For today’s card I played along with 2 different challenges.  The first one is Freshly Made Sketches #363.  Be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the amazing projects made.  Here is their sketch challenge.

The other challenge I played along with is Hand Stamped Sentiments #302.  Be sure to stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their color challenge.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  I’m giving you a sneak peek of a new Stampin’ Up stamp set called Beauty Abounds that will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Thick Very Vanilla card front and stamped it with the Hardwood stamp in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered a strip of Merry Merlot on the right side then ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I adhered the stamped panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the side in Merry Merlot Ink.  I colored the image in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added 3 Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the Bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the Bokeh dots.  I adhered the panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail then adhered it to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.  I stamped the image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom left of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peek of what’s coming in January.  I’ll have more sneak peaks in the next couple weeks.  Happy Stamping!
