Stampin’ Up Alpine Adventures Christmas Card

Good Thursday morning everyone.  We’ve made it around the bend of another week.

For my card today I used the Stampin’ Up Alpine Adventures Bundle.  Take a look.

I started with a Crumb Cake card front and ran it through my Big Shot using my Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a small piece of the Neutrals Designer Series Paper on a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Using my Big Shot again, I cut the sled from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies out of Wood Textures 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the Whisper White embossed panel using Glue Dots.  I stamped the Wreath from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the berries on the wreath in Poppy Parade Ink.  I cut the wreath out from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies and the bow in Poppy Parade cardstock with my Big Shot.  I attached the bow to the wreath using a Glue Dot and attached the wreath to the sled using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the Let it Snow from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a small piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.   I cut out the circle from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies using my Big Shot.  I adhered the sentiment to the right of my sled.

I made a double loop bow and attached it to the left side using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple snowflakes cut from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies in Shimmery White cardstock to the card front.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the sled image from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on top of the sled.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  I will be very honest with you, this card was a little more time consuming, but I loved making it with all the layers.  Hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Well, we made it half way through the week.  Hope yours is going well.  I’ve made a fun fold card today for you using the lovely Rooted In Nature stamp set.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  To make the Z-Fold I scored an   8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base at 4 1/4″ and again at 2 1/8″.  this is how it will look when folded.

On the 2 smaller panels I adhered a piece of Natures Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image in Soft Suede Ink stamping it off twice.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature on top of the tree trunk. Using my Layering Squares Framelits Dies I cut the image out with the largest square framelit using my Big Shot.  Then I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock using the largest Scallop Square Framelit Die, again with my Big Shot.  I adhered the Very Vanilla square to the scallop square using Snail.  I attached the square in the middle of the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the one half.

On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set using my Soft Suede and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.  I then cut the tree out using the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the trunk and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top leaves.

On the inside I lined the card base with another piece of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the tree trunk again on a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off four times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the tree trunk.  I then sponged the edges using my Sponge Daubers, in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered the small panel to the inside of the card, making sure it was under the card front square so that you can not see it when the card is closed, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope flap using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope that you will give this Z-Fold card a try.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off good so far.

For today’s card I used the Rooted In Nature Bundle again.  This is such a great set, I’m really loving it.  The Nature’s Poem Designer Paper is just beautiful too.

I started with a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock for the card base.  I stamped the small leaf image from Rooted in Nature in Cajun Craze Ink on the card front.  I then adhered a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper to the right side of the card front using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image of one of the trees.  To get the 2 colors I colored the stamp using my Soft Suede and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Markers. I then sponged a little Mint Macaron on the bottom of the white paper to make it look like grass.  Using Snail I adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  I attached it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller leaf image 3 times, once each in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  I then cut the leaf images out using the Nature’s Roots Framelit Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached them to the top left of my center piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a bow made from Linen Thread to the bottom of my 3 leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside Whisper White panel, I stamped the small leaf image multiple times using Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  Some of the images are full strength and some are stamped off.  No sentiment was added so that the card could be used for any occasion.  I adhered the panel using Snail to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  Using Liquid Glue I adhered it to the card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the small leaf image in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks, stamping off once, around the edges of the envelope.
