Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Plaid Winter Woods

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy half way through  the work week day!!  Hope everyone’s week is moving right along.  Other than my surgery getting delayed for 3 hours yesterday, everything went well.  I got to be awake for the whole thing and was able to ask the doctor questions as he was performing the surgery.    The first hand wasn’t too bad, but by the time he started the second the numbness was wearing off.  He did numb it up again though.  Having a bit of trouble using my finger now, but I’ll figure out how and keep moving right along.

For today’s card I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalog which I absolutely love.    Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #350.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I cut the image out using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and cut the top section off.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I needed a star for the top of the tree, so I grabbed the Stitched Stars Dies and cut a small star out of a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the star to the top of the tree using a Glue dot.  I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over the tree.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I made a banner out of the strip using my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a small strip of a Gold Foil Sheet to the bottom of the banner using Snail and adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon and adhered it to the end of the banner using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment.  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 I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front. I stamped one in full strength and another stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid 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 Beauty and Joy Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  We have had beautiful weather here.  I hate going into work when it’s this nice.

Today’s card is another one that we made at my last Stamp Camp.  I just wasn’t ready to make any fall cards, but I wanted to share one of my new stamp sets with the ladies.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on a Smoky Slate mat using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower pot image from the  Stampin’ Up Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th)in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink above the flower pot.  I stamped the leaves from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the tree trunk.  I randomly stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink  on the leaves.

Using my Banner Triple Punch, I punched the bottom of the cardstock to make a banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pot with tree images from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same way that I did on the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals 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.  The stamp set I used will be available for purchase September 4th.                        Happy Stamping!!
