Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  This is a short week for most, so today would be halfway through the work week already.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to spend most of the morning making all my pies and pumpkin cheesecake.  I’ll get my sweet potatoes started and the first step of my stuffing done.

For today’s card I made a collage card for you using a lot of different elements.  I also used a pre-made card base, which I don’t usually use.  I’m always up for trying something different.  Here’s my card.

I started off with a Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for my card base.  It’s larger that my regular cards so I had more room to decorate.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I sponged a little White Craft Ink around the edges using my Stamping Sponge.  I cut some pine boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Die in Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I cut some berries out using the Flourish Dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I cut the scroll out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I cut some foliage out of Vellum cardstock using the Frosted Frames Dies.

I arranged and re-arranged the pieces until I liked the way they looked.  Once I had everything how I wanted it, I started adhering the pieces using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment on top of the collage using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set on either side of the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes comes with decorated envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Color Challenge and the colors screamed rustic to me.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s my card using our colors.

Here are our colors for this week.

My design was inspired by the Paper Craft Cres Challenge #358.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the top of the Crumb Cake card front.  I embossed the  Crumb Cake card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped a small panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Stampin’ Up Buffalo Check Cling Background Stamp in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a small Crumb Cake panel.  I cut the image out using a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered the artwork to the Buffalo Check stamped Cherry Cobbler panel using Snail.  I stamped the bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the bear to the corner of the artwork using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a strip of Early Espresso cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a piece of the 3/8″ Magnolia Lane Linen Ribbon with White Edge on the Early Espresso strip using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure to add a couple Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the bear to secure it.

On the inside I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the cabin image.  I stamped the bear and deer image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the cabin and bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Toile Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you were able to make some time for yourselves.

I have a very clean and simple, quick and easy card for you today using some Designer Series Paper.   My card also uses the least amount of colors I have every made a card with, 2.  My cards usually have a minimum of 3 colors, but I wanted to try something a little different than my normal.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #408.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #244.  Here’s their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Garden Green Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Garden Green Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Toile Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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 Ride With Me Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Labor Day to you all.  Hope you are getting to enjoy a day off.

For today’s card I played with a new set to me called Ride With Me.  I had to make a card for a little boy turning 2 who loves trucks.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #227  Their theme is ‘CELEBRATE’

I started by cutting out the rainbow frame using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut  the Pumpkin Pie frame using the 3rd & 4th die (starting from the largest and counting down).  I cut the Pineapple Punch frame using the 4th & 5th die.  I cut the Granny Apple Green frame using the 5th & 6th die and I cut the Blueberry Bushel rectangle using the 6th die.  I arranged them all together and adhered them to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the truck in using my Light Basic Black, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the truck out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the Truck Ride Dies.

I adhered the truck and the balloons to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, I cut out the letters in Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered them above the truck using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the truck image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail 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 truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for taking the time today to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your day off.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreaths Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is just about here.  Is anyone starting to make plans?  I’ll be working all weekend, but today I’ll be having fun walking around the Philadelphia Zoo.  Hopefully it won’t be too hot for the animals to be out.

For today’s card I used a new set in the up coming 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #557.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Highland Heather card front using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Highland Heather card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Snail.  Using the next size up Stitched Rectangle Die I cut a piece of So Saffron Subtle 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper and adhered it onto a So Saffron mat using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the matted DSP hanging off the right side using Snail and then adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the scalloped Balmy Blue mat out using my Layering Ovals Dies and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the larger floral image from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 2 corners.  I stamped the smaller flower from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I colored all the flowers in using my Balmy Blue, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a So Saffron mat using Snail and then to the inside of my Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for my card.  I adhered a panel of the So Saffron Subtle 6″ X 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  This stamp set will be available on September 4th for purchase.

Happy Stamping!!

I started by adhering a Terracotta Tile panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and cut a Stitched Rectangle Die out of it.  I cut a larger Stitched Rectangle Die out of Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the Grapefruit Grove rectangle to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner out of a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I made another banner using the Triple Banner Punch out of a strip of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP.  I adhered the DSP banner to the cardstock banner using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the flower image in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out a scalloped circle mat using my Layering Circles Dies in Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock, and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Makers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set I used for today’s card will be available September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Gather Together for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects. This month our theme is ‘Fall Frenzy’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Connie Troyer’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you.  I used a new bundle coming in the Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #169.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4) to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Pretty Peacock Ink 3 times.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss scallop circle mat, which I had cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4) I cut out 4 leaves, 1 each in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the single pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Pumpkin Pie Ink and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the bottom of the stitched circle the way I liked them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the leaf. I stamped the double pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Connie Troyer’s blog or hit Next to head over to Amy Koenders blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!
