Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to Mint Macaron mats. I adhered one panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Polished Pink mat. I adhered the longer layered panel to the top of the larger rectangle layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Polished Pink layered panel to the top of the multi-layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. Using my Layering Circles Dies I cut a solid circle and coordinating scalloped circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on the solid circle in Mint Macaron Ink and embossed the circle using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the circles together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird image and holly image to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim around the multi-layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the multi-layered panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored them in using my Mint Macaron and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for my 3rd card using the Whimsy & Wonder DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today, but surprisingly I have off tomorrow. Looking forward to a day off.

If you saw my Facebook live on Wednesday you saw that I stamped and cut out 2 different holly leaves. I had embossed 1 with Silver Embossing Powder and stamped the other with Tuxedo Black Ink. I asked those that were watching which one I should use. The majority picked the silver, but I had the black one and wanted to use it. So, today’s card is another version of yesterday’s.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Cling Stamp Set along with my Blending Brushes for my card today.

I started by using my Blending Brushes and my Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight Inks and colored a Basic White card front. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card front.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Basic Borders Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the cut panel. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and the holly in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the holly in using my Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Can you believe it’s the middle of October already? Another month flying by. Before you know it , it’ll be Halloween, then Thanksgiving and Christmas, YIKES! How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend between both jobs.

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! Happy Holly-Days Cling Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the top of a Blushing Bride mat.

I scored a panel of Whimsy & Wonder DSP as shown in the template above. On the left side I made a little mark 1 1/2″ down from the top. I cut from the 2 1/4″ score line to the 1 1/2″ mark using my Paper Trimmer. I folded on the score lines as I marked on the template as Valley Folds and Mountain Folds to make the curtain.

I adhered the folded panel to the bottom of the Blushing Bride mat. I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon around the layered panel over the seam. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powder pack and set it using my Heat Tool. I colored the holly in using my Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and cut it out using the Harvest Dies. I fussy cut the bird and holly using my Paper Snips. I adhered all the cut pieces to the card front. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. I added a couple of the 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Whimsy & Wonder 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 the 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.
