Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes CAS

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you all have a productive one. It’s the 1st of the month again, so I’ll be working all day, but I think I will take tomorrow as a day for me.

For today, I have another CAS card for you using the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Challenge #397. Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I cut the panel into 3 pieces,1 11/16″ X 4″ each, and adhered them to a Whisper White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the panel adhering it on the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped one of the medium snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink over the sentiment. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the snowflake cluster from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Seaside Spray Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the snowflake cluster image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the bottom front of the envelope 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! Snowman Season CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Are you ready to tackle another week? I can’t believe we’re through another month already. I’m running out of time to finish my Christmas cards. I’m hoping to get them in the mail by the weekend.

I have another Clean and Simple card for you today. Once again I only used Stamp, Ink and Paper, no embellishments this time just a mat. This is another perfect card if you are a beginner stamper. I used 1 color ink and just a few Stampin’ Blends Markers. I pulled out a set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #398. Here is their sketch.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped all my images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. First I stamped the snowman in the center of the panel. Next I stamped the branch arm images on either side of the snowman image. Last, I stamped the hat image on both ends. I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink below the snowman.

I colored both hats using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the snowman’s carrot nose using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Marker.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the snowman image, branch arms and hat images from the Snowman Season stamp set all in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black 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 branch arms and hat from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the snowman, branch arms and hat images from the Snowman Season stamp set on the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie 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! Joyful Holly CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? I spent Friday and Saturday decorating and I still have a long way to go. My husband did get the whole outside done. This is the first time in years that he didn’t decorated on the coldest day of the season. I’ll be working all day today. Even though I had off yesterday, they asked me to come in to relieve the cashiers so they could take a lunch break.

For today I have a clean and simple card using just the basics, Stamp, Ink & Paper. I did sneak in a couple rhinestones too. I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. This is a perfect card if you are a beginner stamper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #621. Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the outline image of the holly from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White card front. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green in the center of the Whisper White card front. I adhered the card front to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the matted card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the top and bottom corners of the panel. I adhered the Whiter White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the envelope front and flap the same as I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? How many of you ended up in a food coma after eating your dinner? We had a very nice quiet one here. Once everything was done, I started pulling some boxes out of the attic of our Christmas decorations. It’s been a tradition for years that the weekend after Thanksgiving Christmas explodes in my house. The past couple years it’s taken more that just the weekend to decorate with my work schedule. This year I have the advantage that I don’t have to undecorate and clean before decorating since we just cleaned and put all our furniture back in our house. I’ll see how much I get done between today and tomorrow.

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 the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle for today’s Fun Fold Card.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front just under the 1″ top of the card base using Tear & Tape.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the medium poinsettia layered image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the Shimmer White cardstock twice in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the poinsettia image in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove some of the color so that it had a very light color. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies. I snipped the leaves apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leaves under the flower image using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the top of the card front and tied a knot. On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Beaded Pearl embellishment to the flower center using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals stamp set in the center of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set over the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base in the center of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I masked the flower and stamped the leaves from the medium layered poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. 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. 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly CAS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through already. Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow? I’ll be making all my pies and pumpkin cheese cake tonight. We’re having a very small gathering tomorrow, just my family and my son’s girlfriend. Hopefully next year our gatherings can be back to normal.

For today’s card I kept it pretty clean and simple. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #244. Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Garden Green card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink twice. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using my Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies, 2 sizes larger than the artwork. I adhered the artwork to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set on two of the corners in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the envelope front in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Winter Dressed To Impress

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It warmed up here this weekend a bit. I thought with the weather last week that we were going to get an early winter.

For today’s card I pulled out one of my favorite sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. A coworker asked me to make a good friend of hers a birthday card with shoes on it and she said her favorite colors were blues and purples. Here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #462. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with the Double ‘D’ Challenge. Their theme is Winter Blues. Here is their mood board.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a stitched square out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the smudge image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off twice, in the center of the square. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice. I colored the shoes in using my Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the shoes to give them a shimmer. I adhered the bottom shoe to the stitched square using Glue Dots and the top shoe using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut another stitched square out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Dressed To Impress stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top of the square. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut one last stitched square out of a panel of Purple Posy cardstock using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I embossed the panel using my Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I adhered the Purple Posy Square down first using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Misty Moonlight square next using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the square with the shoes on the top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped 2 sentiments in the center of a Whisper White Panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. One of the sentiments is from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set and the other is from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set. I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel. I colored the shoes in using my Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and brushed them with Clear Wink of Stella. I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the shoe and flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the shoes. 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! Nothing’s Better Than Warm Hugs

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Hope your weekend is starting off great. I was finally able to sleep in my own bed last night and we are now able to walk on our floors. They came out gorgeous. I can’t wait to put furniture back and pictures back on the walls to make it nice and homey again.

For today’s card I combined a couple stamp sets to make another non-traditional colored Christmas card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up Nothing’s Better Thank Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set. My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #397. Here are their colors.

I also played along with Global Design Project #267. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Curvy Dies twice. The Curvy Dies are available as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are no measurements for how I cut the curves, I just cut them the way I liked them.

On each of the cut pieces I stamped the sentiments from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. On a panel of Purple Posy cardstock I stamped the cup image from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using the Love You More Than Dies. I colored the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the top Whisper White panel, I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the cups to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered both Whisper White panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals trying to keep the same amount on the top and bottom.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 3 times along the bottom of the panel. I adhered 3 more of the cups that I stamped, colored and cut from the Purple Posy cardstock along the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cup image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink above the cups. I colored the cups using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Peony Garden 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! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans? Besides trying to get my house back in order, I’ll be at work all weekend. We will finally be able to walk on our new floors today, but only with socks, no shoes. I’ll be happy to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. The hotel was fine, but it’s not home. We probably won’t move our furniture back into the house until next week. My husband has a lot of painting to do now and he has to replace a lot of the molding. We figured it would be a lot easier to do without any furniture in place. I can’t wait till it’s all done and everything can be put back in place.

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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase this set already. The stamp set will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the DSP I used is a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Here’s my card that I made.

For my Fun Fold card I used the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set that will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. I also used the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper that can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021.

This is the template for cutting your Drapery Fold card.

I started by cutting and folding the Flower & Field DSP as in the template above. I added a couple Glue Dots in between the folds to hold them in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I trimmed the folded DSP to 5 1/4″ and adhered it to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flourish image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flourish image from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field 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. The stamp set for my card today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. The DSP can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available. If you need a catalog and would like me to be your demonstrator, please drop me a line and I will be more that happy to get one out to you as soon as I can. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

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

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Gnome For The Holidays for 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.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using these colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gnome For The Holidays Cling Stamp Set for today’s card. Can you tell this is my favorite set in the catalog? My design is from TGIF Challenge #290. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the gnome image from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I masked the gnome image with a Post-It Note and stamped the tree house image from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set behind the gnome in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To do the masking, you stamp an image on a Post-It Note and fussy cut it using your Paper Snips. You place the cut image over the stamped image and stamp the next image you want and it will appear to be behind the 1st image. I colored the images in using my Bronze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Petal Pink, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. One of the colors in the color challenge is Garden Green, but they haven’t made a Garden Green Blends Marker yet, so I used Just Jade. I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. On the back of the matted artwork I added some of the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using Glue Dots then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment over the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Christmas Tree. On the ornaments/lights that I didn’t add rhinestones and the star I used Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped another one of the gnome images from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered thin strips of the ‘Tis The Season DSP on the bottom and top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the 2 gnome images from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Petal Pink, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. Happy midweek! We’re on the down hill to the weekend already. Yesterday was one very loud day at my house. I knew it was going to be loud, I just didn’t know how loud. On the bright side, my floors are starting to look amazing. They were able to sand the stains out with no problems. We have 3 more days of staying off them, then we can walk with socks only.

I have a Christmas card for you today using non-traditional colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Bundle for my card along with the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. My Colors were inspired by As You Like It Challenge #238. Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #201. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #352. Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the hat and scarf in using my Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Snow Time Dies. Using the Snow Time Dies I embossed the top of a Basic Gray panel with the snow flake die. I adhered the snowman image to the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small Whisper White panel and cut it out using the Snow Time Dies.

I stamped a small panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the panel behind the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the 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 sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the top of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the snowman. I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 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!!
