Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a small Whisper White panel using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Silver Foil mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered the larger one to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the smaller snowflake on the opposite corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the center section.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to 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! Warm and Toasty Cheer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend?  My craft area got a little bit of a makeover yesterday.  I ordered new shelves and they got delivered on Wednesday.  I couldn’t wait to put them together and reorganize my area.  I usually do a reorganization on New Year’s, but it got done a little early this year.  It’s so nice, neat and more spread out that I can find things a little easier.

For today’s card I made an easel card.  I’m not sure if I’ve done this before, but it was a lot of fun.  The easel part was really easy.  Have you ever gone through stamping images and coloring them in and you go to look for the dies and there aren’t any?  I really thought this stamp set came with dies, guess I was thinking of another one.   I had everything stamped, colored and ready and I had to pull out my Paper Snips to fussy cut everything.  Now, if I lived closer to my upline Jaimie, I would have run over to her and asked her to cut them out for me since she is an expert at it.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Going Cool Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering the Highland Heather easel part of the card to a Purple Posey card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the base easel section and the outside easel section using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the skating polar bear, singing bunnies and the small polar bear images from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the same panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Pacific Point & Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.  I colored the sleigh in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips.  I cut the smallest snowflake from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a panel of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  Using my Layering Ovals Dies I cut a panel of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I adhered the Silver Foil oval to the base of the easel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skating polar bear on the foil using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Balmy Blue Glimmer snowflakes to the panel.

On the front panel of the easel I adhered the sentiment to the center using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the singing bunnies to the top of the panel and the small polar bear to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 Balmy Blue Glimmer snowflakes to either side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the Adhesive Backed Snowflakes to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set around the sentiment, stamping off twice, in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the small polar bear from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal and trimmed it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skating polar bear image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in using my Balmy Blue & Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice, around the bear.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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!!
