Stampin’ Up! Peace and Joy CAS

God Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to another weekend. Hope you are thinking of some fun plans.

I have a clean and simple card for you today using one of the fun bundles from the August-December Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #199. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper to a Brushed Metallic mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the scallop edge die from the Budding Blooms Dies and adhered it to the back of a panel of Heartwarming Hugs DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment ‘Joy’ from the Stampin’ Up! Peace & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the Joy Dies. I cut the mat for the sentiment from a panel of Real Red cardstock using the Joy Dies and adhered the sentiment to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a flourish out of a panel of Brushed Metallic paper using my Christmas Layers Dies. Using my Paper Snips I cut the flourish and adhered it to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal, having one piece going up and the other going down. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Real Red Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment next to the ‘Joy’ using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sprig image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the sprig image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs 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! Merry and Bright CAS

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

I have another CAS card for you today.  I’m slowly learning when it comes to holiday cards that’s the way to go.  I do make some extravagant ones.  Those go to special people that I know don’t toss them to the side right away and take a moment to look at the card.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Always Fun Challenge #182.  Their Theme is “Die Cutting”.

I started by adhering a Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper card front to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Real Red 3 16″ Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied  a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Joy Dies, I cut the 3 layers of the sentiment. The largest, background, in Real Red, the middle outline in Whisper White and the word in Mossy Meadow.  I adhered the 3 layers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ‘MERRY, AND’  sentiments from the Stampin’ UP! Peace & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I cut the words out using my Paper Snips and adhered them above the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine boughs image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, 1 full strength and 1 stamped off.  I adhered a thin strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red 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 Peace & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs 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!!
