Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Memories for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?  I hope you were able to enjoy some time with family and friends or even a nice relaxing day.   How many of you were in a food coma yesterday?  I was close, but I was able to control myself.  I don’t know about you, but I always enjoy the leftovers the day after more than I do on Thanksgiving Day.  I’m in full Christmas decorating mode today.  I always decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving, but since I have to work Saturday and Sunday this year, I’m planning on getting as much as possible done today.

For today’s card I made another new to me fun fold, the Double Easel Fold.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #328.  Here’s their inspiration.

Next I got my color inspiration from Global Design Project #217.  Here are their colors.

My card also played along with Inspire. Create. Challenge #057.  They had a theme challenge for this week which was right up my Friday’s ally.  Here’s their theme.

I started by folding the Flirty Flamingo Easel card and adhering the 2 smaller panels of Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.   On the larger panel of Christmastime is Here DSP I stamped the snowflake image from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set multiple times in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the panel to the back portion of the easel card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the easel card base to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the skates out from the Whisper White panel using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I adhered the detailed skate to the solid skate using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 skate blades out of a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet and adhered them to the skate blade on the bottom of the Whisper White skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates together using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, on the Whisper White panel that I cut the skates from, and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I colored the holly and berries in using Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the holly to the skates using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the skates to the easel card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Free Skate stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a Crumb Cake mat using the next size up of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a bow out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Detailed Skates Dies and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I brushed the bow and holly with my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little sparkle. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels around on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the top corners of the panel.  I colored the holly in using my Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers and added Clear Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White pane to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake 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 Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card front and adhered it to the skate image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a pane of Christmastime is Here 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! Wonderful Time of the Year CAS Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Is anyone starting to prepare for Thanksgiving?  I picked up my turkey this weekend and some of the ingredients for the trimmings.  I can’t believe we’re at the end of November already.  This month has really flown by.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you again.  Once again I let the beautiful designer series paper do most of the work for me.  Ok, so yellow is not my favorite color, but I do love the holly in this paper and I was pretty happy with how it came out. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered a Cherry Cobbler strip near the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval to an Old Olive scallop oval which I cut using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set.  I colored the holly in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the berries in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly out using my Detailed Skates Dies and adhered it to the sentiment oval using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the holly leaves to support them.

On the inside I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set in all 4 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel using Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Night Before Christmas 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! Free Skate Christmas Card and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through another week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a couple projects to share with you that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  Our team leader, Amy, comes up with the cutest ideas.  Both projects were 100% her designs.  First we made a Christmas card using the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Bundle.  After making this card I am definitely going to purchase this set for myself.  It’s so much nicer in person than it is in the catalog.  Here’s the card we made.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Poppy Parade panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the bow using the Detailed Skates Dies from the panel of Po9ppy Parade cardstock.  I cut the strip of holly leaves out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I cut 2 of the solid ice skates out and 2 of the detailed ice skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies from the Whisper White panel.  I cut 2 of the ice skate blades out of the Silver Foil Sheet using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampn’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly image out using the Detailed Skates Dies.

To assemble everything, I adhered the detailed skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the  blades to the bottom of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Holly to the skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow above the skates on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the strip of Holy leaves to the left of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment circle above the holly using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free Skate stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the sentiment and colored it in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the Holly and Berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored them in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The other project we made at our team meeting was this adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box.

Everyone got to choose the Designer Series Paper we wanted to use.  This adorable little box is cut from one sheet of the Night Before Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Stack using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  It was so simple to put together too.  Fold up the sides and it’s done.  These boxed would make great little favors that you can fill with candy or a little keepsake.

The only stamping on this was the tag and holly berry image.  We stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  We colored it in using the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  For the tag, we stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tiny Keepsakes Cling Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  We adhered the holly and berry to the tag using a Glue Dot and tied the tag to the box using some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked the projects that I shared with you.  I had a lot of fun making both projects and what made it even more fun was stamping with Team Members and friends. It’s great being a part of this team.  If you’re interested in joining our team, please contact me for more information.  I’d love to have you join us.  Happy Stamping!
