Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was your Thanksgiving? Were you overstuffed from eating too much? I didn’t have too much of an appetite, so I didn’t over eat this year, which is good, lol. My daughter still loves watching the Macy’s Day Parade and I was listening to it while I was making my pumpkin swirl cheesecake and starting my pumpkin crescent rolls. I always have to go in to watch the end of the parade when Santa arrives, that tells me it’s ok to start decorating. My plan today is to get as much decorating done as I can since I have to work tomorrow and Sunday. I had all these big plans that I was going to have all my decorating done between yesterday and today. Oh Well.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are similar to last Friday’s that I made on my Facebook Live. Unfortunately I could do a live this week due to having pneumonia and not being able to stop coughing. I’m hoping to be back next week, hopefully this coughing will subside a little. I did post links to the videos below along with the measurements so that you can stamp along with the video. Here is another version of the fun fold card from last Friday.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Bundle along with the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started with a panel of Sweet Stocking DSP and cut from the right center in 2″. I then scored from the center cut line to the 2 corners using my Paper Trimmer. I folded the 2 sides back creating the 2 triangles.

I embossed an Evening Evergreen card front using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the cut DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and stamped it with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment circle to a coordinating Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle that I cut from the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered some of the silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front and adhered the artwork on top of it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the little dog image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stocking Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Stocking Dies I cut 2 of the holly leaves and 2 of the berries from scraps of Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler and adhered them to the top of the circle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set on the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of Sweet Stockings DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front right where I would write the address, and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my fun fold card and will give it a try. To see the video on how to make this fold from last Friday on my Facebook page, you can find it Here. To view the how to video on my YouTube channel, you can find it Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Be Jolly

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I was suppose to have off today and only work a half day tomorrow, but things changed. I’ll be working today and tomorrow at the hardware store. One of my cashiers is sick and we had to rearrange the schedule and I won the prize lol.

I pulled out another Christmas set from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for todays card. I love the images from this set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Be Jolly Cling Stamp Set along with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Real Red card front using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the left side of the card front. I adhered another strip of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP across the card front towards the bottom. I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the adorable Santa image from the Be Jolly stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I used the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker on the beard just to highlight and add a little color and then used the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove most of the color. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest Layering Circles Dies. I cut a scallop circle from a panel of Real Red cardstock using the 2nd largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the stamped image to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front just above the strip of DSP. I adhered the layered Santa image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Real Red Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped another one of the adorable Santa images from the Be Jolly stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Real Red card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the Santa image from the Be Jolly 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 the 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! Christmas Season Snow Wonder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is starting out fun. Mine is for sure. I’m so happy to be here in Blue Ridge Georgia with my stamping friends. The place we’re staying in is absolutely gorgeous out in the wilderness. The craft room is just wonderful. I’d love to have something like this at home, I’d be in heaven.

The craft room across from the cabin
Inside the craft room.
Ladies busy at crafting

Gifts from Amy and Mary

One of the best parts of this retreat, other than the company and crafting of course, is that I don’t have to do a thing for a couple days. No cleaning, cooking or driving anyone around YAY!!! James is doing it all for us and he is an amazing cook. Here’s our first meal here ending with an amazing dessert.

Beef Lasagna, Roasted Broccoli, Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans & Mushroom & Cinnamon-Maple Squash
Salad with all the fixings
Chocolate Lava Cake w/ Vanilla Ice Cream

Today’s card is another card we made last weekend at our quarterly in per team meeting. This one was designed by our wonderful team leader Amy Koenders. I always love her style. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I didn’t have a chance to finish my card at the meeting and I didn’t have the stamp set everyone else used, so I picked my own sentiments from a set that I had.

I started by embossing a small panel of Basic White cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered embossed panel next to the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the holly leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, the pine bough and sprig images in Evening Evergreen Ink, the berry stem image in Soft Suede Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them on the embossed panel adhering them with Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon and adhered it on top of the small collage using a Glue Dot. I tucked a few of the Gold Holly Leaves under the bow using Glue Dots. I added a few Gold Gilded Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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