Stampin’ Up! Seasons Greetings In The Pines

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans?  It’s suppose to be like a beautiful fall day here.  I’ll be at work all day, but I do have off tomorrow.

Today’s card is the one I made on Wednesday for my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to watch live or the replay, thank you.   You can also watch it on my YouTube channel.  Here is my card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Challenge #386.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I ran the die partway through my Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine. I moved the die to the size I wanted it matching up the stitches, turned it around and ran it through again only partway.  I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock Using the Pine Woods Dies and adhered it to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and went around the edges using my Just Jade Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock twice.  I cut the images out using the coordinating die from the Beautiful Boughs Dies along with the smallest bough die in Just Jade cardstock.  I adhered the pine bough and the pinecones to the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots.  I made a bow using Linen Thread and adhered it  to the pinecones using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the panel.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce 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 pine bough from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake in on the bough.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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.  The list of supplies are 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.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Christmas

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Hope you are enjoying some fun activities.

I have another quick and easy card for you today using one of the new bundles from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #450.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline tree image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I stamped the fill image from the In The Pines stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the outlined images.  I cut the 3 trees out using my Pine Woods Dies.  On a panel of
Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies, making sure the sentiment was at the top of the rectangle.

I adhered the trees to the bottom of the rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top 2.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fill image of the tree from the In The Pines stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel, one full strength and the 2nd stamping off once.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline tree image from the In The Pines stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the fill image tree from In The Pines stamp set over the outline image in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  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!!
