Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  This is a short week for most, so today would be halfway through the work week already.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to spend most of the morning making all my pies and pumpkin cheesecake.  I’ll get my sweet potatoes started and the first step of my stuffing done.

For today’s card I made a collage card for you using a lot of different elements.  I also used a pre-made card base, which I don’t usually use.  I’m always up for trying something different.  Here’s my card.

I started off with a Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for my card base.  It’s larger that my regular cards so I had more room to decorate.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I sponged a little White Craft Ink around the edges using my Stamping Sponge.  I cut some pine boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Die in Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I cut some berries out using the Flourish Dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I cut the scroll out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I cut some foliage out of Vellum cardstock using the Frosted Frames Dies.

I arranged and re-arranged the pieces until I liked the way they looked.  Once I had everything how I wanted it, I started adhering the pieces using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment on top of the collage using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set on either side of the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes comes with decorated envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pengiun Frost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  We’re half way through already, which means the weekend is right around the corner.  In just a little over 2 weeks I will be leaving for OnStage in Hartford.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with some of my team members and seeing the next Occasions Catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by my Upline’s weekly challenge she had for us.  I did both the color and sketch on the same card.  Here’s my card.

Here are her colors and sketch she gave to us to work from.

I used a technique I haven’t done in a while.  I used my Sponge Brayer on the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to change the background to Mossy Meadow.  Once I had it the shade I liked, I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the penguin image from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I stamped the scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the penguin image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and I fussy cut the scarf and hat using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon on the card front using Snail and adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from scraps of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut the swirls out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies from a scrap of Real Red Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the boughs under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the swirls over the boughs using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I had colored using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red 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 stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Today’s the day!! Stampin’ Up! 24-Hour Sale, 15% off select stamp sets.  Don’t miss out on these great buys.  More information below about this along with the list of sets on sale.

My upline gave us our colors and sketch for this week to work with.  I am in full Christmas card mode now and when I saw the colors I had to think how I can make them work for a Christmas card.  Here’s what I came up with.

Here is the sketch and colors she gave us.

I started by stamping the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stems in using my Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I cut a few boughs out of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.  I cut 3 pinecones out in Soft Suede and 3 in Terracotta Tile cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.  I adhered the Mint Macaron boughs to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Terracotta Tile pinecones to the Soft Suede pinecones using my Fine Tip Glue Pen and then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I made the sentiment strip into a banner and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat, using Snail, which I also made into a banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to either side of the banner.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap, some in full strength ink and some stamped off once.

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