Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  I’ve got a busy one ahead with the end of the month and the 1st of the month.  I’ll also be working at the dog bakery this week, so not much free time for me.

For today’s card I used some of the beautiful Holiday Designer Series Paper that will be on sale starting October 1st for 15% off.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a thin strip of Garden Green cardstock on the edge of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I didn’t have a rectangle the size I needed, so I made one to fit.  I cut the sentiment out part way using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut partway through.  I moved the die to the size I wanted, matching up the stitches, turned the panel around and cut partway through again.  I adhered the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a frame which I had cut using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the small boughs from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered them to the sentiment using Glue Dots.  From scraps of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock, I cut the pinecone from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Toile Tidings DSP on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 Toil 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! Sweetest Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have to work today and I have a busy work week ahead of me.  I was able to get my house all decorated for fall yesterday.

I have another Clean & Simple card for you today that is also Quick & Easy.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #391.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #524.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Merry Merlot card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered 2 panels of Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Merry Merlot card front, above the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 holly leaves out of a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I stamped the berry image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a scrap of Rococo Rose and cut them out using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I adhered the holly leaves to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the berries on top of the leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly leaf image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the holly leaves.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the holly leaves and berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Wonder of the Season Specialty 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! Celebration Tidings Christmas Gift Bag Topper

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy Autumn everyone!!!  How is everyone’s week going?  I hope everyone is having a productive one.

I have one more project that we made at our last virtual in person team meeting a week ago Sunday.  My awesome team leader Amy designed a Christmas Gift Bag Topper.  I was hoping to have a bag full of goodies to display it in.  Here is the project.

I started by cutting out the large, medium and small layering poinsettia flowers from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Poinsettia Dies.  I cut 3 of the leaves out using the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered the flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the centers.  I adhered the leaves behind the flower using Glue Dots.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot.  I cut a sprig die from the Poinsettia Dies out of a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhered it to the back of the poinsettia using a Glue Dot.

I cut the largest die from the Celebrations Labels Dies out of a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I scored and folded the die cut in half.  I adhered the poinsettia to the front of the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! 
Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Using the Banner Triple Punch, I punched the end to make a banner.  Using the Banner Triple Punch I made a banner out of a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP.  I adhered the 2 banners together with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the banner to the bag topper using Glue Dots.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked this project and will try it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have off today, but I will be doing some work around my house.  Time for some fall cleaning to get done.  I have to take down summer decorations and put up the fall.  It was chilly here this morning.  When I got up this morning it was only 40 degrees outside.  A definite sign that fall is here.

I have a Clean And Simple card for you today using the Masking Technique.  I went back to the basics using Stamps, Ink and Paper.  I tend to forget about simple when I’m making cards sometimes.  The very first workshop I went to years ago, we did not do simple cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with Fab Friday Challenge #197.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping 3 of the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped the image once on 2 Post-It notes.  I fussy cut the Post-It note images using my Paper Snips to use for my Masking Technique.  If you ever look at a poinsettia, the leaves around the flower are identical to the flower petals.  This is why I wanted to used the same leaves under the flower images.

I placed the Post-It note masks over the center and one of the side images so that I wouldn’t stamp over them.   I stamped the largest poinsettia layering image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over and around the masked images.  I move the side Post-It to the other side image and stamped the large poinsettia image again in Garden Green Ink.  I removed the Post-Its and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock In Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of a strip of Merry Merlot cardstock, which I cut into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Stampin’ Seal just on the bottom of the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using the Masking Technique again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and flap.  Using the Masking Technique once again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card using the Masking Technique and will give it a try.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com. I’d be more that happy to help you. This is a great technique that only uses Stamp, Ink and Paper, but looks like you did so much more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasons Greetings In The Pines

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans?  It’s suppose to be like a beautiful fall day here.  I’ll be at work all day, but I do have off tomorrow.

Today’s card is the one I made on Wednesday for my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to watch live or the replay, thank you.   You can also watch it on my YouTube channel.  Here is my card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Challenge #386.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I ran the die partway through my Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine. I moved the die to the size I wanted it matching up the stitches, turned it around and ran it through again only partway.  I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock Using the Pine Woods Dies and adhered it to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and went around the edges using my Just Jade Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock twice.  I cut the images out using the coordinating die from the Beautiful Boughs Dies along with the smallest bough die in Just Jade cardstock.  I adhered the pine bough and the pinecones to the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots.  I made a bow using Linen Thread and adhered it  to the pinecones using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the panel.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 pine bough from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake in on the bough.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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 supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a small Whisper White panel using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Silver Foil mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered the larger one to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the smaller snowflake on the opposite corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the center section.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today. If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go to Julie’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all their blogs! Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a gorgeous one here and I had the whole weekend off from work, YAY!!!  We had our in person, virtually, team meeting yesterday, we have such an awesome team.  Even though we’re all in our own homes, I love stamping with everyone and it’s always great to be able to put the faces with their names.

Over the next couple days I will be sharing some of the projects that we made after our business meeting.   All the cards we made used the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle, but they are all so different.  My first card was designed by my Upline Jaimie.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cherry Cobbler card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the 4th smallest die and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd smallest label die from the Celebration Labels Dies and scored it in half.  I stamped the flourish image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle on the front of the label.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added a couple Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front of the label.

  On the inside of the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I adhered the label to the Shaded Spruce panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered another Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Shaded Spruce panel.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the 2 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a thin strip of Plaid 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 the card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m working at the dog bakery again today.  The owner asked me a couple weeks ago if I could fill in yesterday and today.  I haven’t worked there since the whole pandemic started.  Her business really took a hit and it’s still trying to work it’s way back up.

For today I made a corner fold card and made it into a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by scoring and folding my card base.

I scored the card base at 5 1/2″ then move it over to 4 1/4″ and made a small pencil mark.  I scored from the pencil mark to the opposite corner.

I folded the corner down to like the pictures above.

I adhered a strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel in Balmy Blue Ink, I stamped the large poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set twice, the medium one once and the smaller one once.  I stamped the large poinsettia a 3rd time in Old Olive Ink.  On the Balmy Blue flowers, I went around the tops of the flowers and the veins with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to move the color around to give it just a light tint of the blue.  I colored the Old Olive flower in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies and cut one of the extra small flower.  I went over the extra small flower with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker and then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to just give it a hint of color.  I adhered the Balmy Blue flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the centers.  I cut the Old Olive flower leaves apart and adhered them to the back of the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a few of the foliage pieces out from my Poinsettia Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  I adhered them to the back of the flower using Glue Dots.

I cut a 4″ X 4″ panel of Whisper White panel in half diagonally and embossed one of the panels using my Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the folded card front panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the poinsettia to the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the flower center using a Glue Dot.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the other half of the 4″ X 4″ panel and adhered it to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place 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! Holly Jolly Gnome for the Holidays For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.  I have off tomorrow, but I’m working on Sunday.  Years ago, when I was a child up to my early 20’s, we used to have a huge family picnic with all my mothers aunts, uncles, cousins, brother and sister.  It was so much fun, it was like a big reunion every Sunday before Labor Day.  Lots of good food (we’re all Italians so not hamburgers and hotdogs), games and catching up with family.  Unfortunately it came to an end and there are only a few people left that used to come.

Today’s card I tried something different again using one of my favorite sets from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  There’s lots of pictures with details for this one.  I really need to start doing videos to explain some of these cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I absolutely LOVE this gnome set, the images are all so cute.  My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #609.  Here are their colors.

I started by making a little mark with a pencil at the 1″ mark on the 5 1/2″ side of a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I flipped the panel over the long way and made a pencil mark at the 1″ mark on the back of the other side.

Using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, I lined up the pencil mark with the inside edge of the punch and cut.  I did the same thing on the opposite side.

Once both ends were punched out, you are left with a card base that looks like this.  I scored the card base at 3 1/2″

I trimmed the side edges off so that my card base looked like this.  I have the score line to the left and I scored the right tab so that I could fold it in to meet with the left tab once the card was folded.

I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered it to the front panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Gnome For The Holidays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the gnome in using my Ivory and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers and I used Clear Wink of Stella on the gnomes beard.  I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and I cut the sentiment out using the smallest octagon die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered the artwork and sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the snowflake cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off once, along the edge of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink to the left of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied the 2 tabs together using a piece of Snowflake Splendor Ribbon and tied a small bow.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake cluster image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off once, along 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Triple Time

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you had nice weather and were able to do something fun.  I was able to go out for a nice long walk yesterday, it was absolutely beautiful.  I believe  it was only in the mid to upper 70’s.  Another week starting and I hope it’s a productive one for you.  I have to work today and tomorrow since it’s the last day of the month and the 1st.  Seems like the 1st comes around really fast lately.

I have a triple time stamping card for you today, but I changed the layout a bit.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the smallest Whisper White panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I lined up the Whisper White panels the way I wanted them and put a tiny amount of adhesive just to hold them from moving.  I stamped the boughs from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink around the panels.  I then stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs around the panels in Soft Suede Ink.

I adhered the largest Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the other 2 Whisper White panels to Shaded Spruce mats using Stampin’ Seal.  Lining up the boughs, I adhered the square panel to the card front then the rectangle panel on top of the square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boughs from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the panel hanging down over the sentiment.  I stamped the splatter image, (or snowflake, not sure what it is), from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice, around the boughs.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 pine boughs from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the splatter image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede Ink around the pine boughs.  I stamped a couple pine cones from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set on the envelope flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you liked my card and will try it. Happy Stamping!!
