Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is your weekend going? I had a very embarrassing moment yesterday. My alarm went off it’s normal 5am. I got myself up and dressed, ate breakfast and went to work. The only problem was, I was off yesterday and I work today. I knew something was wrong when I tried to open the door to go into the store and it was still locked. The managers I usually work with get in at 7:30, and hour and a half before the store opens. The manager that worked yesterday never gets there until 8:45, 15 minutes before the store opens. So I had another rainy/stormy day to work on cards and some other things I’ve been wanting to get to. Needless to say, I’ll be at work all day today.

I have another Christmas card for you today. I figured I really need to get myself going with these cards and since the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog is in full swing and full of wonderful Christmas sets, now’s the time. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set (one of my absolute favorites) along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the bottom half of the image from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink to the right side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the top half of the image from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, lining up the package with the top of the skirt, on the Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Ivory, Mint Macaron and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set on the top of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.

I stamped the skirt image from the bottom half of the image from the Delivering Cheer stamp set on a small panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the skirt using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Christmas Tree Dies, I cut the large tree die from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and the garland die from a panel of the Silver Foil Specialty Pack. I adhered the garland to the tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the tree to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I fussy cut multiple presents from a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Sped DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered some of the presents on the stamped image using Stampin’ Seal and some under the tree using Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered more of the presents I had fussy cut, from the panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP using my Paper Snips, on the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Whimsy & Wonder Spec 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! Nature’s Harvest 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 Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here are our colors for this week.

I started by embossing a Soft Succulent card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large and small flower images from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. Using my Harvest Dies, I cut out the stamped images, the branches from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and the wheat die from panels of Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent cardstock. I arranged the dies the way I wanted them and adhered them to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a bow from a piece of 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon and Crumb Cake bakers twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, and adhered it to the bottom of the arranged flowers using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a small piece of the Cork Specialty Paper just under the Harvest Meadow DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Harvest Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Soft Succulent Stampin Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Marker and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Friendship

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I have a rainy day off from work today, so that means I get craft time, YAY!!! I love getting lost at my crafting table for hours on end, when I can.

I have a fall card for you today. I thought it was time to really get into the fall and holiday cards. I need to get myself a little ahead so I’m not scrambling when it gets closer to Christmas. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Brushed Metallic mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Brushed Metallic mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Rich Razzleberry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of the Gold Shimmer Vellum using the largest leaf die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies. I snipped the die using my Paper Snips and set it aside. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink.

I adhered the vellum leaf die to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set on either side of the panel in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamped off 3 times on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my envelope I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the envelope front multiple times without reinking the stamp. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty 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! Gorgeous Leaves

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. Another month flying by.

I have a fall card for you today. I’m working my way to the holiday cards. I just haven’t been able to get into making them yet with how hot it’s been. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set and In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge ‘LEAF it to chance…’

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to an Early Espresso panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf and splotch images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Inks randomly around. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso Ink towards the bottom of the panel. I embossed the panel using my Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the panel to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the Very Vanilla panel using my Paper Snips to be even with the card front.

I wrapped a length of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the small leaf dies from the Intricate Leaves Dies, from scraps of Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I adhered the leaves under the bow using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the top of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Nuts About Squirrels 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. 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! Nuts About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper.

Our theme for this week is Critters. I used squirrels for my critters.

I started by cutting a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP using the Picture This Dies.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I adhered 2 panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the branch image from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso Ink to the right of the branch. I stamped the vines of the leaves in Old Olive Ink on the branch and the leaf over the vine in Bumblebee Ink. I adhered the die cut card front to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 squirrel images from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the leaf vine image 3 times in Old Olive Ink and the leaf image over the vine in Bumblebee Ink with Cajun Craze Ink sponged around the edges. I stamped the fill image for the squirrels in Sahara Sand Ink on both squirrels. I stamped the top of the acorn image in Soft Suede Ink and the bottom in Soft Suede Ink, stamped off once. I fussy cut the squirrels and leaves out using my Paper Snips. I adhered the squirrels in the top and bottom opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves on the branch using Glue Dots. I added a few of the Brushed Metallic Dots to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the squirrel image from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the acorn top in Soft Suede Ink and the bottom in Soft Suede Ink, stamped off once. I stamped the tree branch image from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the leaf vines in Old Olive Ink and the leaves in Bumblebee and Cajun Craze Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the squirrel images from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink and the acorn in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Sympathy

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you were able to do something fun and had some nice weather to do it.

I have a CAS card for you today. I’ve made a sympathy card for you, unfortunately I need a couple of them after this past weekend. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set along with the Timeworn Type 3E Embossing Folder for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #654.

I started by stamping the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Crumb Cake card front. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type #D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered some Linen Thread to the card front using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal to hold it. I adhered the sentiment on top of the thread using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Seascape Sparkly Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Are you doing anything fun? Anyone heading out on vacation? Don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. For orders of $50 increments, you will earn 2 Rewards, so $50=2, $100=4, $150-6, etc. Visit my rewards page here for details.

Today’s card is very similar to one I made last week, but more on the feminine side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Bundle along with the fun Layering Diorama Dies for my card.

I started by stamping a Mint Macaron card base using the seaweed image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the small school of fish image from the Seascape stamp set on the front of card base in Mint Macaron Ink

I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Layering Diorama Dies. I stamped the small school of fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the Mint Macaron panel. I adhered the panels together using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Prince & Princess Host Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. Using my Paper Snips I cut the end into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Sea Life Dies, I cut the large fish from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Using my Paper Snips, I cut the fish away from the paper since it doesn’t cut it out completely. I cut the small fish dies from scraps of the different colored Ombre Specialty Paper. I adhered a few of the small fish using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the large fish using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Clear Epoxy dots from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bubble image from the Seascape stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the panel. I adhered the glimmer die cut fish using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the envelope front with the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam Inks. I stamped the small fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Mango Melody Ink and the bubble in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front and 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! All For Baby

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Have you started shopping the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and earned some FREE Sale-a-bration items yet? What are you waiting for? Shop now through Monday August 9th and earn my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. I got my order in first thing yesterday morning, YAY!!! I should have my goodies by tomorrow and can’t wait to start playing with them all.

Today’s card is another one we made at my class last night. I had a couple of the ladies request a baby card. A couple wanted baby boy cards and others wanted gender neutral. Here’s the card we made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Bundle for my cute card today.

I started by using my Blending Brush and added Pool Party Ink to a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the clothesline image from the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on the inked panel. I cut the top of the panel using my Basic Borders Dies. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the stamped images out using my Baby Clothes Dies. Using my Baby Clothes Dies I cut 2 of the hangers from a panel of Basic White cardstock, 4 of the clothespins from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the onesie outfit from a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and the bib from a panel of Pattern Party Hose Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the top of the inked panel. I adhered the outfits to the hangers using Stampin’ Seal and the clothespins to the die cut images using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut images to the clothesline using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the little striped romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Host 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! Party Puffins for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working Sunday, but I have Saturday off. Not sure what I’ll be doing yet. I may attempt to dig out a tree I’ve been wanting to get rid of that’s half dead.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by cutting a Coastal Cabana card base. I scored it at 5 1/2″, then lined the right front edge at the 2 1/8″ mark on my trimmer and cut down from the 5 1/2″ score line. I turned the card base a 1/4 turn and cut along the 5 1/2″ scored line down from the 2 1/8″ cut line.

I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the puffin image from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie & Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the middle Hippo & Friends Dies. I cut the larger Hippo & Friends Die from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the puffin and birthday cake from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie & Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the candles in using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the fish image from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the fish in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker. I didn’t really like the color so I colored over it with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker. I colored the bow with my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the fish using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the puffin using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped 2 of the puffin images from the Party Puffins stamp set on the envelope front and colored them the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Note Card and Box

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? We had a beautiful, warm weekend here in NJ. I worked both days, but I get out by 5pm so there’s plenty of time left to enjoy part of it.

Today’s card was a surprise that we made at my Stamp Camp Class last Tuesday. I wasn’t sure what we were going to make then I remembered I had purchased these adorable boxes and thought a note card would go perfectly with it. Here’s my card and box.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Bundle for both items, keeping it very simple. The box is the Scalloped Kraft Treat Box and it’s really a great size for a little gift.

I assembled the Scalloped Craft Treat Box and adhered a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal on the top of the box. I cut a solid Merry Merlot star using my Christmas Trimmings Dies. I cut a detailed star from a panel of Gold Foil paper which was adhered to a piece of an Adhesive Sheet, and adhered it to the solid star. I adhered the star to the box top over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the berry image in Merry Merlot Ink on the panel of cardstock. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trimmings Dies. I cut another leaf die from a scrap of Evening Evergreen cardstock and the berry die from a scrap of Merry Merlot cardstock. I adhered the leaves and berries under the star using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and adhered it to the star using Glue Dots.

For the Basic White Note Card I randomly stamped the outline leaf images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the card front. I stamped the leaf fill images in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink between the leaf images. I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of the card front. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I randomly stamped the leaf and berry images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Merry Merlot Inks on the top and bottom of the Basic White Note Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of the card base.

To complete my Basic White Note Card a decorated a matching Basic White Note Card Envelope. I randomly stamped the leaves and berry images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Merry Merlot Ink the same as I did for the card.

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