Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Christmas Card and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through another week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a couple projects to share with you that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  Our team leader, Amy, comes up with the cutest ideas.  Both projects were 100% her designs.  First we made a Christmas card using the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Bundle.  After making this card I am definitely going to purchase this set for myself.  It’s so much nicer in person than it is in the catalog.  Here’s the card we made.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Poppy Parade panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the bow using the Detailed Skates Dies from the panel of Po9ppy Parade cardstock.  I cut the strip of holly leaves out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I cut 2 of the solid ice skates out and 2 of the detailed ice skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies from the Whisper White panel.  I cut 2 of the ice skate blades out of the Silver Foil Sheet using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampn’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly image out using the Detailed Skates Dies.

To assemble everything, I adhered the detailed skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the  blades to the bottom of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Holly to the skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow above the skates on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the strip of Holy leaves to the left of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment circle above the holly using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free Skate stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the sentiment and colored it in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the Holly and Berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored them in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The other project we made at our team meeting was this adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box.

Everyone got to choose the Designer Series Paper we wanted to use.  This adorable little box is cut from one sheet of the Night Before Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Stack using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  It was so simple to put together too.  Fold up the sides and it’s done.  These boxed would make great little favors that you can fill with candy or a little keepsake.

The only stamping on this was the tag and holly berry image.  We stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  We colored it in using the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  For the tag, we stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tiny Keepsakes Cling Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  We adhered the holly and berry to the tag using a Glue Dot and tied the tag to the box using some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked the projects that I shared with you.  I had a lot of fun making both projects and what made it even more fun was stamping with Team Members and friends. It’s great being a part of this team.  If you’re interested in joining our team, please contact me for more information.  I’d love to have you join us.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Wrapped In Plaid Swirly Frames Sneak Peek Christmas Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Hope your week has started off well.

I have a sneak peek for you today from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  If you are a customer of mine you have seen this set in the catalog on page 13.  This is a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large and small circles from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Shaded Spruce card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched 3 trees out from the new gorgeous Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4th) using the Pine Tree Punch (available Sept 4th).  I adhered 2 of the trees using Glue Dots and the center tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the  Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Perfect Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plaid tree from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce twice and Cherry Cobbler once on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The Perfect Plaid Stamp Set, the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Pine Tree Punch will be available for purchase on September 4th.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Christmas Card for CAS(E) This Sketch #301

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  We’re down to the final week before Christmas. I’m still trying to get my cards finished. I’m hoping to finish up tonight.  Are you done with everything?

I have another Christmas card for you today and I played along with the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge # 301.  Be sure to stop by CAS(E) This Sketch to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

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

I started with a card front from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.  I embossed 2 strips of Garden Green cardstock with the Subtles Dynamic Textured Imperssions Embossing Folder using my Big Shot.  I adhered them to opposite corners on the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I trimmed them to fit the paper.  I then wrapped 2 pieces of Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon over the Garden Green and adhered them on the back using Snail.  I then adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in Garden Green Ink.  I stamped the poinsettia from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler above the sentiment.  I then cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and a square from Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies.  I cut a scalloped square out of Silver Foil Sheets and my Layering Squares Framelits Dies.

I adhered the Stitched square to the scalloped Square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle of the flower.

On the inside I stamped the poinsettia from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the 4 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one poinsettia in the center stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the poinsettia.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail then adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettias from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Dashing Along 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 Wishing You Well for Sunday Stamps

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  Hope your week is going well

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well stamp set and joined in with the Sunday Stamps Challenge #193.  Please be sure to stop by Sunday Stamps to see all the beautiful projects that everyone has made and to play along.  They had a fun color challenge to work with.  Here are their colors.

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

I started with a small piece of Petal Pink cardstock and stamped it with the Hardwood background stamp in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered it to a Mint Macaron card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the center of the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it.  I adhered the bow to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Vellum I stamped the sentiment from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink and made a banner.  I adhered the banner across the wreath using Glue Dots and added a couple Silver Metallic Pearls.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bow from the Wishing You Well stamp set in the center in Blushing Bride Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in Cherry Cobbler Ink over the bow.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail then adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the bow from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the envelope flap with the Hardwood background stamp in Early Espresso Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Half Full Floating Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. If you have started with me or come from  Jaimie Babarcay’s gorgeous project, welcome. The second Tuesday of every month the team does a blog hop with a different theme each month.  This months Theme is ‘CELEBRATE’. We can interpret this any way we want.  We have a group of amazing stampers, so be sure to hop around to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.

Here’s mine for today’s blog hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card base.  I cut the front leaving 2 1/2″ from the center score line.  I then cut the remaining piece to 1 1/2″.  I stamped the top with the Cheer sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it immediately with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the Holiday out from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot from a piece of Copper Foil Sheet and adhered it above the Cheer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Merry Christmas To All Bundle is available at a 10% discount only until January 2, 2019.  After that the stamp set and Thinlits Dies will be available separately at the non-discounted price.  If you were thinking about getting this set, now would be the perfect time when you can save an extra 10%.

I stamped the set of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Stazon Ink on a small piece of Window Sheet.  I colored the wine glasses in using my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Window Sheet to the inside of the top section of the card base  using Snail.   I then adhered the smaller piece of the card front to the bottom section of the Window Sheet, again using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon around the bottom section and tied a knot and to hold it in place I added a Glue Dot under the knot.

On a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the wine bottle from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bottle and the cap in using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron and Soft Suede Inks.  I adhered the bottle to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals connecting the top and bottom of the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top and bottom.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Half Full stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I made sure that I stamped above and below the Window Sheet so that it didn’t show through where the wine glasses were.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine bottle and wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the wine glasses on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now you can either hit the Next or Previous to hop around to see all the other amazing projects made.  You can also click on each name to see what everyone has made.  Happy Hopping!

Stampin’ Up Cable Knit Spirited Snowmen

Good Monday morning my Stamping Friends.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  These weekends seem to go by way too fast and the week days seem to linger on, don’t you think?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen stamp set that will soon be retiring.  I absolutely love all the images in this set.  If this is a set you’ve been wanting, I’d grab it while you can.

I started with a Very Vanilla card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  On a smaller piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the Snowmen image from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set (soon to be retired), in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the Snowflakes from the same stamp set in Versamark Ink all around the snowmen and sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I colored the snowmen in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered some Copper Metallic Thread to the back of the artwork then adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

On the inside Very Vanilla panel I stamped the snowmen from Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, in the center of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the snowmen image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel 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 Snowmen from Spirited Snowmen stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the Holly & Berry from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Christmas Card

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  Have you had a productive week?  Any fun plans for the weekend? Whatever you do, have fun and make the best of it.

One of my amazing Up-lines sent me a new bundle yesterday.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Bundle.  As soon as I got it I had to make a card with it and had a Christmas card in mind that I wanted to create.  Take a look.

I started with a card front of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  I knew I wanted to stamp a Christmas tree on the side, but after going through all my stamp set I didn’t have even one set with a Christmas tree.  I had to compromise and use the pine tree from Lovely As A Tree stamp set, so I stamped it in Shaded Spruce Ink on the right side of the DSP.  I know, it’s not quite a Christmas tree, almost a Charlie Brown tree, but I made the best of it.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to make it look like it had lights.  I adhered the card front to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bench from the Sitting Pretty stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the bench from the Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I stamped the dog from the Sitting Pretty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the dog out using my Big Shot and the Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I adhered the dog to the embossed bench using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered the bench to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the bow on the dog out from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies in Real Red cardstock and adhered it to the dog using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the presents from the Alpine Adventures stamp set in Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Old Olive and Real Red Inks.  I cut 2 of the presents out using the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies with my Big Shot and the other 3 presents I fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the presents using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the tree.  I stamped the Christmas Greetings sentiment from the Alpine Adventures stamp set in Versamark Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I made it into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and edged it using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I wrapped a small piece of Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon on the top left corner.  I adhered the banner just under the ribbon using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the dog in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the presents from Alpine Adventures stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Old Olive and Real Red Inks next to the dog.  I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pine tree from Lovely As A Tree stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the front right of the envelope and the dog from the Sitting Pretty stamp set on left side using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my card.  I know I used a lot more products then I usually do, but I couldn’t find everything I wanted to use in 1 or 2 sets.

There are a few things I used in my card today that are being retired.  The Alpine Adventures Stamp Set, Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies, Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon.  If you like and of these products I’d grab them while you can.  Things are going fast.

Hope you all have a great weekend!  Happy Stamping!
