Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments for Happy Inkin’ Thursdat Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. We have someone new joining us this week, Carol Buckalew. She is one of our team members and she creates some beautiful cards. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set, Merriest Frames Dies and Organic Beauty Dies for my card today.

Our colors this week are Basic Black, Basic White and any other color we want. I chose to use Cherry Cobbler.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Organic Beauty Dies. I adhered the die cut panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink 3 times each. I cut the images out using the Merriest Frames Dies. I adhered the small poinsettia to the larger one using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered poinsettias to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top one. I added 3 of the smallest Pearl Basic Jewels to each flower center.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brightly Glow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set on the top and bottom corners of the panel in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Today’s card is similar to one I did a while back at our monthly mystery stamping. One of the ladies that comes to my Stamp Camp Card Class asked if we could make that card, but since I’m doing a Christmas in July theme, I adjusted it to that. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments for Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all day Saturday, but I have off on Sunday, YAY!!!

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! Merriest Moments Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering panels of the Ever Eden DSP to Brushed Metallic cardstock mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I cut the largest leaf frame using my Eden Dies. I cut the pine bough wreath from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using the Seasonal Swirls Dies. I cut the Evening Evergreen frame down until I had the wreath that I wanted. I adhered the 2 halves together using Glue Dots. I adhered the pine bough wreath on top of the leaf wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped 2 of the smallest poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink. I cut the images out using my Merriest Frames Dies. I stamped 3 of the pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut them out using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered the poinsettias together using a Glue Dot and then to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I adhered the pinecones to the wreath using Glue Dots. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I twisted the tails of the bow and adhered them down using Glue Dots. I added 3 of the smallest pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the poinsettia.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the pine bough image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the small poinsettia image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the envelope front and the larger poinsettia image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden 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.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I hope you have some fun plans this weekend, even if it’s just relaxing. I worked all day yesterday and boy was it a hectic confusing day. A lot of crazy customers. I’ll be at the dog bakery all day today. It’s suppose to be a beautiful day so that usually means everyone will be walking in town with their dogs, YAY!!!

I pulled out a set I haven’t played with since our retreat last month. The possibilities with this set are endless. I’m so happy I purchased this set and can’t wait to play with it more. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Bundle along with the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment and poinsettia images from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Merriest Frames Dies first so I knew where to stamp everything else making sure I had enough room. I stamped the 2 pines and larger poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut all the images out using my Merriest Frames Dies. I adhered the poinsettias together alternating leaves using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered poinsettia to the top of the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked the pine and leaf images under the poinsettia using Glue Dots.

I adhered a length of my Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front and the artwork on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the panel, twice with full strength ink and twice stamped off once. I stamped the poinsettia image on the bottom of the panel in Cherry Cobbler Ink and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. If you haven’t purchased this set you might want to consider getting it. It’s such a wonderful set. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
