Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Snow Wonder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is starting out fun. Mine is for sure. I’m so happy to be here in Blue Ridge Georgia with my stamping friends. The place we’re staying in is absolutely gorgeous out in the wilderness. The craft room is just wonderful. I’d love to have something like this at home, I’d be in heaven.

One of the best parts of this retreat, other than the company and crafting of course, is that I don’t have to do a thing for a couple days. No cleaning, cooking or driving anyone around YAY!!! James is doing it all for us and he is an amazing cook. Here’s our first meal here ending with an amazing dessert.

Beef Lasagna, Roasted Broccoli, Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans & Mushroom & Cinnamon-Maple Squash
Salad with all the fixings
Chocolate Lava Cake w/ Vanilla Ice Cream

Today’s card is another card we made last weekend at our quarterly in per team meeting. This one was designed by our wonderful team leader Amy Koenders. I always love her style. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I didn’t have a chance to finish my card at the meeting and I didn’t have the stamp set everyone else used, so I picked my own sentiments from a set that I had.

I started by embossing a small panel of Basic White cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered embossed panel next to the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the holly leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, the pine bough and sprig images in Evening Evergreen Ink, the berry stem image in Soft Suede Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them on the embossed panel adhering them with Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon and adhered it on top of the small collage using a Glue Dot. I tucked a few of the Gold Holly Leaves under the bow using Glue Dots. I added a few Gold Gilded Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Here we are, halfway through the week again and on our way to the weekend. I can’t wait for the weekend to get here. I’m meeting up with some of my team members for a retreat in Georgia. I’m so looking forward to getting away and getting together with my team members and spending the weekend crafting, talking and laughing.

Today’s card is one that we made on Sunday at our quarterly team meeting. This beautiful card was designed by one of my team members Donna Leonard. She presented the card via Zoom and we were all able to stamp along with her. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock in Real Red Ink. On that same panel using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the leaf image in Evening Evergreen Ink, the pine bough image twice in Soft Succulent Ink, the berries in Real Red Ink and the pinecone image first in Soft Suede Ink and the detailed image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut all the images out using the Seasonal Labels Dies.

I embossed a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock using the pine bough folder from the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to the other side of the Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered in on the back of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted and adhered them using Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Holly Leaves on the card front using Glue Dots. I cut the berry die apart by cutting the single berry off and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the side of the panel and the berry image in Real Red Ink on the leaf image. I adhered a strip of the Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of The Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf and berry images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Real Red on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

I have a quick Christmas card for you today. I used this design for my class last week, but they used the other side of the DSP and a different stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the ornaments in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a length of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the top of the panel and adhered it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly and berry image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies and adhered them to the top of the ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times across the top of the panel. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. 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 complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the center top of the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season To Remember

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’ll be off to my quarterly team meeting this afternoon to meet up with some of my team members in person, finally!! I’m so looking forward to seeing them again.

Today’s card is one of the cards we will be making today at our meeting. I’m going to be presenting the card and making it with my team members in person and via Zoom meeting. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock I stamped the pine bough image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large and small pinecone images from the Christmas Season stamp set. I stamped the solid pinecone image in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once and the detailed pinecone image over the solid image in Soft Suede Ink full strength. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I cut the largest label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. On the bottom of the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered 2 sets of 3 of the pine bough dies together using Glue Dots. I adhered the pinecone dies to the top of the Cherry Cobbler label using Stampin’ Dimensionals, just on the top and bottom of the pinecones. I adhered the 2 sets of pine boughs dies under the pinecones using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the pinecones using a Glue Dot. I added a few gold Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the 2 pine bough images from the Christmas Season stamp set on the top of the envelope front in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered a panel of the Painted 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How was your long weekend? It’s back to work today, but it will be a nice short week.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order. Here’s my card for today.

I used the adorable Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started with 2 panels of Penguin Playmates DSP and cut them both on a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered both panels to a Misty Moonlight card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Basic White cardstock between the DSP panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow using the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bow tie and hat images from the Penguin Place stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the beak in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Hope you had a productive one and are ready for the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I believe I will be working both days.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold card today.

I started by scoring a full panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. With the 8 1/2″ side on the bottom of the trimmer I scored at 4 1/4″. I turned the cardstock so the 11″ side was on the bottom of the trimmer and I scored at 5 1/2″. I took my score blade out of my trimmer and lined up the corners with the cutting indent and cut the panel from corner to corner making sure to go through the center mark on the cardstock. This will give you 2 card bases. I folded the top triangle down and the side triangle over. I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I cut a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec. DSP from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I adhered one of the triangles of the Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP to one of the Blushing Bride triangles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the front of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another panel of Blushing Bride cardstock, which I adhered an Adhesive Sheet to the back, I cut multiple garland dies using the Christmas Tree Dies. I adhered them to the other Blushing Bride triangle to fill in most of the spaces and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to the other front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the ornament and holly images from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a small panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock, which I cut a scalloped edge using the Penned Flower Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the ornaments to either side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the strings. I adhered the holly on top of each set of ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the top of only one side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post.

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!!

This beautiful card is from my team member Clara Shore. I just love this traditional tree, it reminds me of the tree we had growing up.
This beautiful card is from a former Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and friend Charlene Tackvic. I used to attend classes with Charlene and she taught me a lot of what I know today. I just love her design and layering.
This adorable card is from my good friend Barbara Dalessio. We used to attend classes at Charlene’s together and she comes to my classes (when I had them). These stockings are just too cute.
This pretty card is from my team member Paula Vincent. Love the bold sentiment on the front edged with the candy cane border.
My team had an ornament exchange and along with Paula’s card I received this gorgeous hand made ornament. She used the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set and stamped & colored on one side of the wooden ornament.
On the other side of the wooden ornament Paula stamped using the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set. I fell in love with this ornament the minute I opened it. I love the snow and snowmen, but I also really love the beach. It was a perfect fit for me and she didn’t really know my taste.

I hope you enjoyed my sharing of the Christmas cards with you. I think homemade cards are my absolute favorite. I know how much time and effort goes into making one so I really appreciate them and save everyone. If you would like to know how to make your own cards and project, please feel free to contact me. I’d be more than happy to help you out. If you are interested in joining this awesome team that I’m on, I’d be happy to help you get started with that too. Just send me an email at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

Enjoy the rest of you weekend. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Elf

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I’ve got a busy couple days with work then I start my yearly Christmas baking on Wednesday night. Perfect time to be baking since we are expecting a pretty big snow storm. Last I heard they are predicting 12″-18″ of snow, but I always wait since they are seldom correct. Guess we’ll have a white Christmas this year. I normally have off today, but I felt bad that I couldn’t work this Thursday or Friday and I know how busy the dog bakery is right now, so I told them I could work today.

I have one final super fun Christmas card for you today. All my cards have now been mailed and I think I’m done for the season. I’ve been wanting to make this one and I have someone special in mind that I want to send it to. I forgot how much fun these cards are to make. Here’s my final Christmas card for the season (I hope).

I used the retiring Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Photopolymer Stamp Set for the inside of my card. The outside is all cut and punched pieces. I’ve seen a card similar made by Rachel Tessman, I added my own twist to it.

I started by embossing a Granny Apple Green card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies. I sponged the edges of a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using Granny Apple Green Ink and my Stamping Sponge. I scored the center of the panel, folded it in half and sponged the inside edges with the Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the sponged panel to the center of the Brushed Metallic die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a strip of Basic Black cardstock and adhered a rectangle of Brushed Metallic cardstock in the center using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a smaller rectangle of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it in the center of the Brushed Metallic using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the belt to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 trees from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pine Tree Punch and embossed them using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered the trees to the top of the card front using Glue Dots, having them over lap on the score line of the center Granny Apple Green piece. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Means More stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brushed Metallic mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the feather image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock to the bottom of the envelope front. If you know the movie Elf he wears a green hat with a yellow rim and red feather. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper 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! Warm and Toasty for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? I’m not sure, but I think my husband might be going to cut our tree. I’ll be working all weekend I believe.

I thought I was done making my Christmas cards and my husband asked me to make a card for his department to give their supervisor. Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made. I used a few stamp set for my card, but the main set I used was the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set.

I played along with The Spot Challenge #140. Their theme is Holiday Throwdown (Over the Top Holiday Cards).

I started by adhering 8 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Warm & Toasty stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP. I adhered the DSP to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 4 of the animal images from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Just Jade, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips. Using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut 3 of the snow drift dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I adhered a strip of Silver Foil sheet to the top snow drift using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the snow drifts together using Glue Dots on the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top one. I stamped the snow image in Balmy Blue Ink on the drifts to give them a little dimension. I adhered the snow drifts to the card base using Tear & Tape on the top section and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom.

I adhered the cut images to the card front and snow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After I added them I felt like the inside still needed a little something, so I added a tall pine tree I had cut from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Pine Woods Dies. I also stamped the tree cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered the tall pine tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the tree cluster using Glue Dots.

This is how the card looks when it is sitting on a table, so you can see how it is folded.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set the the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top. I adhered the Whisper white panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin Seal and then adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 2 of the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink and cut them out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered them to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!
