Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmastime is Here For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone making plans for the weekend?  I’ll be at work, but today I’m heading to the Philadelphia Zoo for the day.  It’s suppose to be sunny but cold, I believe only in the 40’s.  Hoping the cool weather brings out the animals.

For today’s card I’ve been wanting to make this one for a while, but I needed to figure out how.  This card for sure will be one that I hand to someone and not mail.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #367. Here are their colors.

I started by cutting all the panels for the card and cutting and scoring the card base.  You need a 12″ X 12″ piece of cardstock for this card.  I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and scored it at 1/4″, 3 3/4″ and 7 1/4″ using my Paper Trimmer.  I turned the paper in the trimmer so that the 1/4″ side was against the bottom edge.  I lined the paper up at the 5/8″ mark and scored from the end to the 7 1/4″ score line.  I cut that piece off and folded the card like an accordion on the score lines.

On the 1/4″ fold I adhered the small Cherry Cobbler panel using Tear ‘n Tape.  I set the card base on the side so that I could work on all the panels.

For the front panel I stamped the branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on one of the small Whisper White panels.  I colored the branch in using my Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the cardinal image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cardinal in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the cardinal to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to each of the 4 panels of Whisper White cardstock using Snail.  On the smallest panel I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  On the other 3 panels I stamped sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered each of the Whisper White panels to Mossy Meadow mats using Snail and then to the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the  card base in the middle and tied a bow.  I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cardinal from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the cardinal in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here 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.  This was definitely not a quick and easy card today.  Once everything was cut and I decided on the DSP and sentiments I wanted to use, it did go together pretty quickly. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week was a fun Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.  Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Silver Foil Sheet card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Silver Foil Sheet banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the scroll stars using the Stitched Stars Dies out of Silver Glimmer Paper.  I snipped the scroll in half so that I could arrange it with the banner so that some was on top and some on the bottom.

I adhered the scroll to the card front using Glue Dots where the banner would cover.  I adhered the sentiment banner over the scroll using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the stars from the scroll, scattered around on the card front, using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the cluster of stars image from the So Many Stars stamp set in Basic Gray Ink around the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the star cluster image from the So Many Stars stamp set in Basic Gray Ink along the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP 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.  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Amy’s page.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Christmas Quick and Easy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you all doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and a week  into November.  I may have to start doubling up on my Christmas card making if I want to have them done on time to sent out this year.

For today I have a super quick and easy card for you.  I thought I’d do a few quick cards to get a little ahead of myself.  Here’s my card.

I let the beautiful Night Before Christmas 6X6 Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me today.  I started by adhering a panel of the Night Before Christmas DSP to an Early Espresso card front using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I really liked this paper and I knew just the sentiment I wanted to put with it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the Frosted Frames Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the right top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla Panel.  I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a panel of the Night Before Christmas DSP to a Medium Very Vanilla 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! Cup Of Cheer

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  We’re starting to have very chilly nights here and cool days.  Perfect fall weather.  I love when I have extra time to craft this time of year, unfortunately I always seem to have to work extra hours.

I have a non-traditional color Christmas card for you today.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Inspire. Create Challenge #055.  Here are their colors.

My design came from Mojo Monday Sketch #526.  Here is their sketch

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a Lovely Lipstick panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 banners to the top of the Lovely Lipstick panel.  One in the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.  The other banner is Blushing Bride I stamped with the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink, which I adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using my Layering Circles Dies. 

Using the Cup of Cheer Dies I cut the cup out of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut the inner portion of the cup out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock using the Cup of Cheers Dies.  I cut the candy cane out of Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick cardstock usng the Cup of Cheer Dies.  I adhered the inner cup piece to the cup using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick candy cane to the top of the Whisper White candy cane using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the candy cane to the back of the cup using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the cup to the sentiment circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Old Olive Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the center of the poinsettia on the cup.

On the inside I stamped the cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in the center of the cup in Night of Navy Ink  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front  I stamped a sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the cup.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Free Skate

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you all were able to do something fun and exciting.

For today’s card I used a new set to me from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted it or not.  I love the set, but I had to be sure I would use it enough.  I’m really happy I decided to get it.  Here’s my card.

My sketch and colors were inspired by Colours & Sketches Challenge #345 – Double.  I didn’t have their exact colors, but they said we could use similar.  Here is their challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies and cutting Rococo Rose cardstock for the solid skate and Rose Glimmer Paper for the detailed skate.  I cut the skate blades out of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I first cut the blade off the solid skate using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the detail skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the blade to the bottom of the detailed skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the Seaside Spray panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment and adhered it below the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the front of the Thick Whisper White card base using the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I adhered the card front to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pretty Peacocok Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Free Skate stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink all around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 skate image from the Free Skate stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink 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! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween my fellow stampers!  It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone created with these colors.  Here is what I came up with.

Here are our colors for this week.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #175.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the main part of the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the tree and pompom on his hat I colored with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and the tree trunk I colored with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the snowman’s nose, hat and scarf in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scalloped circle cut from my Layering Circles Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper under the sentiment using Snail.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink and once over the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink stamping off once.  I added 2 thin strips of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.
