Stampin’ Up! Let It Snow Gift Card Holder for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one.  The weekend is here already and the countdown has begun.  This will probably be my last Christmas card for you.  I think I’m all caught up and ready to start writing them out and get them in the mail.  Have you gotten all your Christmas cards made yet?  I have to work on Saturday, but   I’m looking forward to Sunday we have our in person team meeting.  I always have so much fun getting together with my team members and stamping.  Amy always has some beautiful projects for us to make.  We have a nice lunch together, take care of some business and then we get to stamp and create.

For today’s card I have a Gift Card Holder for you.  Seems that a lot of gift cards are given out around this time.  My niece always asks me to make her one or two for her boys teachers, so I’m always looking for new ideas.  My card for today uses up a lot of Designer Series Paper.  Those that read my blog from Tuesday know that I had hand surgery.  This card was NOT made ahead of time (guess I wasn’t thinking).  I did a better job doing all the fussy cutting for this card with my hands all bandaged up that I do without.  Once I got those Paper Snips on my fingers properly, I went to town cutting.   Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with “Just Us Girls” Challenge #516.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #112.  Their theme is ‘Cute Christmas’.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Foil Sheets to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue and set it aside.

I folded the Coastal Cabana card base into a Z-Fold card.  I adhered the smaller panels of the Let It Snow DSP to 5 of the 6 sides.  I did not adhere a piece to the back which will be getting adhered to the larger card base.   I fussy cut some of the snowmen from one of the panels of Let It Snow DSP using my Paper Snips.

On the front of the Z-Fold I adhered 2 of the fussy cut snowmen using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set on the DSP in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  You can emboss any color when you use your ink and the Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I just love the way an embossed sentiment looks, so I do this a lot.

When you open the card to the right I had adhered 2 panels of the Let It Snow DSP.  I adhered another one of the fussy cut snowmen using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

When you open the Z-Fold to the left you get the inside of the card.  On the back panel I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a 2″ piece of Let It Snow DSP and using the 1″ Circle Punch, I cut a half circle in the center of the panel.  I adhered the small panel to the center using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The gift card will slide in and out real easily.  I adhered the Z-Fold card to the card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I used the Tear & Tape because I figured the card is going to get opened and closed a lot and I really wanted to make sure it sticks well.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Let It Snow DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my gift card holder and will give it a try.  It’s a pretty quick and easy card once you get all your DSP cut up.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Natures Beauty Quick and Easy Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Hope your week is starting out well.

I have a really quick and easy card for you today.  Once again I let the Designer Series Paper do the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I adhered a panel of Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Gray Granite I stamped the deer image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink.  I fussy cut the deer using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the deer to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Circle Dies.  I cut a scallop circle out of a Silver Foil Sheet using the Layering Circle Dies and adhered the sentiment to the scallop circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front to add a little extra sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel.  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 deer image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  This pack of DSP makes the most gorgeous cards with very little effort. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Toile Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you were able to make some time for yourselves.

I have a very clean and simple, quick and easy card for you today using some Designer Series Paper.   My card also uses the least amount of colors I have every made a card with, 2.  My cards usually have a minimum of 3 colors, but I wanted to try something a little different than my normal.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #408.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #244.  Here’s their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Garden Green Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Garden Green Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Toile Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas CAS Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Anyone do anything fun?  I finally had a weekend day off and it was cold and rainy.  The good thing about that was, I got to spend a lot of time at my craft table.

As promised last week, I’m in full Christmas card mode.  I send a lot of Christmas/Holiday cards out, so I really need to get moving.  I have a very quick & easy, clean & simple card for you today.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #479.  Here are their colors.

My design was from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #407.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create. Challenge #054.  Here is their theme.

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

I cut the snowflakes out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Christmas Layer Dies.  I adhered the snowflakes to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the top corner of the sentiment banner.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Exclusive Cling Stamp Set, in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Stampin’ Up Frosted Foliage Cling Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana Ink around the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered a strip of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a small Sparkle Glimmer Paper snowflake to the bottom of the panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow 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!!
