Stampin’ Up! Season of Fun for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m supposed to be starting and finishing my baking this weekend. As most of you know, it’s been a pretty long 3-4 weeks of me being sick. I’m hoping to feel up to getting my baking done or I may have a lot of disappointed people that wait for my cookies.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Christmas Tree, Decorations of Favorite Card.  I decided to use my favorite card that I’ve made this past year. My card is one that I made back in October at our team Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie started doing a Mystery Stamping night once a month with our team. She gives us the measurements of cardstock and DSP. We have to pick the colors, image(s), sentiment and DSP we want to use. This was one of my favorite Christmas cards that I made so I decided to share it again. I just love all the images of this stamp set, but especially this one.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas1creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season’s of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge HOL21. How are you inspired by this photo? Share your tree, holiday decorations or your favorite card from this past year.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas2creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

I started by embossing a Soft Succulent card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. This is a small embossing folder, so I had to emboss one side of the cardstock, then move the paper over and emboss the other side. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas3creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. I adhered another panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the fussy cut images to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the layout that Jaimie was telling us to do, we were suppose to adhered the image to the top of the layered panel, mine just wasn’t going to work that way so I had to switch it around.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas4creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it toe the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas5creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the images in the same as I did for the card front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink around the girl and dog images, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the little girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Sorry I missed another live this week. I’m really hoping to be back soon. I miss everyone. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be at work all weekend, but taking it really easy (I hope).

So I thought I was done making all my Christmas cards, then my husband said “I need 2 cards for the bosses at work”, UGH! So here’s what I came up with for 1 of them. I’m really hoping he can pick one of my already made cards for the other one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from the Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #271.

Today’s is a really simple fun fold we made a similar card at our team meeting this past Sunday. I scored and folded a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered it to the right inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Tear & Tape.

I started by adhering a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the front panel of the Soft Succulent card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Snowbody Better stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Misty Moonlight, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed is using my Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Decorative Matte Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the left side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set below the 1st sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the right side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base, over the Cherry Cobbler panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas 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! Merry Snowflakes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Bundle along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

I played along with The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #569

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #330.

I started by adhering 2 panels of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Basic White card front.

I embossed a panel of Silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered one of the Wonderful Snowflakes to the center of the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the scroll image from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the sentiment. Using my Stitched Snowflakes Dies, I cut the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the scroll image from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Seasonal Wreath for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Peace On Earth.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin ClingStamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle for my Clean and Simple card. I was inspired by the gorgeous wreath in the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #165. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an In Good Taste Designer Series Paper card front. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base.

Using my Seasonal Swirls Dies, I cut 2 of the wreaths out, 1 in Evening Evergreen and 1 in Soft Succulent. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the small pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink multiple times. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I cut 3 sets of holly from a panel of Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Paper and multiple berries from a scrap of Real Red cardstock. I adhered the pinecones, holly and berries to the wreaths using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow using the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot leaving long tails. I twisted the tails of the bow and tacked them in a couple places using Glue Dots. I added a few Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the pine boughs image from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set above and below the sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the pinecones and holly & berries I had cut to the boughs. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine boughs image from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink above and below where I’d be writing the address on the envelope front and 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! Christmas Season to Remember CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Has anyone started decorating yet? Have you started your holiday shopping? I’ve got a little of my decorating done and I got my baking shopping done. I also have quite a few gifts already, but I still have more to do.

Today’s card is another one that I stamped via zoom with my upline Jaimie last week. She designed a couple cards and we stamped together. It was really a lot of fun and I love her designs. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the holly and berries out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it our using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the holly and berries above the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was your Thanksgiving? Were you overstuffed from eating too much? I didn’t have too much of an appetite, so I didn’t over eat this year, which is good, lol. My daughter still loves watching the Macy’s Day Parade and I was listening to it while I was making my pumpkin swirl cheesecake and starting my pumpkin crescent rolls. I always have to go in to watch the end of the parade when Santa arrives, that tells me it’s ok to start decorating. My plan today is to get as much decorating done as I can since I have to work tomorrow and Sunday. I had all these big plans that I was going to have all my decorating done between yesterday and today. Oh Well.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are similar to last Friday’s that I made on my Facebook Live. Unfortunately I could do a live this week due to having pneumonia and not being able to stop coughing. I’m hoping to be back next week, hopefully this coughing will subside a little. I did post links to the videos below along with the measurements so that you can stamp along with the video. Here is another version of the fun fold card from last Friday.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Bundle along with the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started with a panel of Sweet Stocking DSP and cut from the right center in 2″. I then scored from the center cut line to the 2 corners using my Paper Trimmer. I folded the 2 sides back creating the 2 triangles.

I embossed an Evening Evergreen card front using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the cut DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and stamped it with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment circle to a coordinating Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle that I cut from the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered some of the silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front and adhered the artwork on top of it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the little dog image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stocking Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Stocking Dies I cut 2 of the holly leaves and 2 of the berries from scraps of Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler and adhered them to the top of the circle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set on the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of Sweet Stockings DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front right where I would write the address, and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my fun fold card and will give it a try. To see the video on how to make this fold from last Friday on my Facebook page, you can find it Here. To view the how to video on my YouTube channel, you can find it Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you are all able to gather with friends and family today to enjoy a wonderful dinner. We’ll be having a very quiet day, just my husband, daughter and I. I’ll be making a small dinner and I’m hoping to get started with my Christmas decorating. I just want to say how thankful I am for all my customers, stamping friends and team members.

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by embossing an Evening Evergreen card front using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to one side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bottom and top images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leg warmer image from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the girls legs. I colored the image using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen & Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Scalloped Contour Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas to Remember Tidings

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Only 2 more days until Turkey day and the official start of the Christmas season, YIKES!! Before you know it we’ll be saying Happy New Year.

Today’s card I made with my upline Jaimie on a zoom call last week. During our last Sale-a-bration in August she had a little challenge to ‘Go For The Gold’. Anyone who signed on a demonstrator, she was going to have a little celebration. I signed on someone new so we had zoom lunch together and stamped some cards together. I really had a lot of fun spending some time with her. The only thing that would have made it better was to be sitting with her in person and stamping. Today I’m sharing one of the cards we made together.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tiding of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card base.

I adhered 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the solid star using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the detailed star die using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the detailed die to the Cherry Cobbler die using tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered star to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Seasonal Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink by the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas 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!!
