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.

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!!

Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. Happy midweek! We’re on the down hill to the weekend already. Yesterday was one very loud day at my house. I knew it was going to be loud, I just didn’t know how loud. On the bright side, my floors are starting to look amazing. They were able to sand the stains out with no problems. We have 3 more days of staying off them, then we can walk with socks only.

I have a Christmas card for you today using non-traditional colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Bundle for my card along with the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. My Colors were inspired by As You Like It Challenge #238. Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #201. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #352. Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the hat and scarf in using my Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Snow Time Dies. Using the Snow Time Dies I embossed the top of a Basic Gray panel with the snow flake die. I adhered the snowman image to the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small Whisper White panel and cut it out using the Snow Time Dies.

I stamped a small panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the panel behind the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the top of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the snowman. I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 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! Snow Wonder for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you are all ready for the weekend.

Today’s card is one I made on Wednesday on my Facebook live video. If you were able to join me live or watch the replay, thank you very much. If you weren’t and you would like to see it, the links are below. I got my inspiration for the design from Patty Bennett, you can see her card Here. Here is my take on her design.

I started by adhering the 2 panels of Champagne Foil to Garden Green mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 panels of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to the matted Champagne Foil using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller matted panel to the front easel section of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the other matted panel to the smaller Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampn’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the image out using my Snow Time Dies. I colored just the holly & berries on the snowman’s hat using my Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers. I colored the carrot nose using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the tree image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Garden Green Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut the images out using my Snow Time Dies. I adhered the trees to the small card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the snowman on top of the trees using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smaller of the 2 frame dies from the Snow Time Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Real Red Wonderful Gems to the sentiment and card front. I adhered the small card base to the back panel of the large easel card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

After I was all finished with my video Wednesday, I realized I had the inner liner and inner liner mat that I forgot to use. I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel. It’s very hard to see, but I embossed the corners of the panel using the snowflake die from the Snow Time Dies. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the small Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I colored the holly, berries and carrot nose in using my Garden Green, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Markers.

I adhered a panel of the Toile Tidings 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!!
