Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Warm Hugs

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Hope your weekend is starting off great. I was finally able to sleep in my own bed last night and we are now able to walk on our floors. They came out gorgeous. I can’t wait to put furniture back and pictures back on the walls to make it nice and homey again.

For today’s card I combined a couple stamp sets to make another non-traditional colored Christmas card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up Nothing’s Better Thank Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set. My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #397. Here are their colors.

I also played along with Global Design Project #267. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Curvy Dies twice. The Curvy Dies are available as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are no measurements for how I cut the curves, I just cut them the way I liked them.

On each of the cut pieces I stamped the sentiments from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. On a panel of Purple Posy cardstock I stamped the cup image from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using the Love You More Than Dies. I colored the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the top Whisper White panel, I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the cups to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered both Whisper White panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals trying to keep the same amount on the top and bottom.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 3 times along the bottom of the panel. I adhered 3 more of the cups that I stamped, colored and cut from the Purple Posy cardstock along the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cup image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink above the cups. I colored the cups using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Peony Garden 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! Nothing’s Better Than Cookies

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  I have the whole weekend off, YAY!!!  I needed off tomorrow for our in person (virtually) team meeting, so I thought I’d give myself today off too.  I have an advantage, I’m the one who makes up the monthly schedule at work so if I need a weekend off I get first dibs.

Today’s card is one I did a video tutorial on Facebook live Wednesday.  I’ve also uploaded it to my YouTube channel so you can view it there also.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I randomly stamped the outline cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the cookie fill image over the outline image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I randomly stamped the small star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Real Red Ink around the cookies.  I adhered the artwork to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Love You More Than Dies I cut the word ‘cookies’ out of a panel of Early Espresso cardstock adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered it to the card front  between the 2 sentiments.  I added a few Real Red Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the outline cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamps set in Early Espresso Ink on the top and bottom of the panel.  I stamped the cookie fill image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Real Red Ink around the cookie images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the cookie fill image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the little star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Real Red Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The list of supplies is below along with the measurements.  If you’d like to stamp along while watching the video, you can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here.

To celebrate my victory of getting over doing Facebook Live videos, I’m giving away a pack of Wonderful Gems to everyone who places a $50 or more order on my Online Store until Monday September 14th. Please remember to use my current Host Code G39RYMEX.  Please note, per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, I am only able to ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States.

Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Coffee

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I worked Saturday, but I had Sunday off.  It was a rainy cool day here.  It was almost like a touch of fall sneaking in.

For today I played around with one of the sets I just love from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I’m not really a coffee drinker, but I know a lot of people that are.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #606.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #548.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top of the panel in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the ‘coffee’ out of a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using my Love You More Than Dies.  I adhered the sentiment between the 2 stamped sentiments.

I stamped 3 coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Love You More Than Dies.  I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the 1st coffee cup using Glue Dots.  I adhered the other 2 coffee cups using Stampin’ Dimensionals, over lapping them a little.

I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 3 coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the steam image above the coffee cups in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set above each cup.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Chocolate and Cookies

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope your weekend is starting out well.  We’re suppose to have a hot sticky one here.  Last I heard the real feel for tomorrow is 107, I will be staying in all day except to bring my dog out.

For today’s I made a monochromatic card for you using a fun new set I just received this week.  Here’s my card for you.

My sketch is from Colour and Sketch Challenge #379.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #403.  Here is their board.

I started by randomly stamping the chocolate, cookie and star images from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Crumb Cake card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set on the bottom of the card front in Early Espresso Ink.  From a panel of Whisper White cardstock I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the candy image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the candy in using my Bronze, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the 1st cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and the 2nd fill image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I cut the images out using the Love You More Than Dies.   I cut the chocolate sentiment from the Love You More Than Dies out of a panel of Early Espresso cardstock.  I stamped the cookie sentiment from the Love You More Than Dies from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I cut the & sign out of a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock from the Well Written Dies.

I adhered the sentiments and & sign to the stitched circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set randomly in Crumb Cake Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the chocolate die cut to the top of the circle and the cookie die cut to the bottom using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the chocolate image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the image in using my Bronze, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the 1st part of the cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and the fill image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once.  I stamped the star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink around the images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 chocolate image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the images in using my Bronze, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the 1st part of the cookie image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and flap and stamped the fill image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the star image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set around the images in Crumb Cake Ink.

I’m cleaning my shelves and drawers out to make room for lots of new goodie.  I have my list right HERE and I’m trying to keep it up to date.   Check it out and let me know if there is anything you’d like to get.  If you are looking for something and don’t see it on the list, drop me a line and I will look through my stash to see if I missed it.  I have lots of older DSP too that I don’t have listed if there is any that you are looking for.
