Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World 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 and staying healthy.  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.

I decided to make a masculine card with this sketch. Here’s my card using this sketch.

I played along with The Card Concept Challenge #141 (Around The World). Here is their theme.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #255. Their challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple)

I started by adhering a panel of World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I added 4 of the Antique Corners from the Antique Corners and Slides Elements using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of World of Good Specialty DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brass Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty 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! Whale Done

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? It is definitely Autumn here in NJ. Temps in the upper 60’s low 70’s during the day with very cool nights in the 40’s & 50’s. I’ve even started to see some leaves changing.

By now you all know that Stampin’ Up! has an amazing Designer Series Paper sale going on right now, 15% off select DSP from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and from the 2020 August – December Mini Catalog. I thought I would showcase some of the different designs from the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper pack. The only thing I stamped om my card for today is the sentiments, the rest was all designed with the DSP. My daughter has been asking me to make a turtle card, so here’s what I came up with.

I started by adhering a panel of Whale of a Time DSP to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut one panel of the Whale of a Time DSP using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 more panel of Whale of a Time DSP to Pacific Point mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller panel to the longer one, evening up the left side, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut another panel using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut the matching scalloped circle from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I adhered the stitched DSP panel to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink. I cut the end using the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a few Whale of a Time Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered 2 strips of Whale of a Time DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Whale of a Time 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! Love Of Leaves Video Tutorial

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? It was a gorgeous Autumn weekend here. I spent Saturday watching my team members doing Facebook Live videos for World Card Making Day and I had to work on Sunday.

Today’s card was the 2nd video that I did on Saturday. The measurements along with the links for the video are listed below. If you were able to either watch me live or watch the replay, thank you very much, I really appreciate it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #613. Here are their colors.

I played along with As You See It Theme Challenge #235. Here is their theme.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #525. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies and I cut a panel of Real Red cardstock using the 2nd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then embossed both panels using the stitched die from the Stitched Leaves Dies. I adhered the 2 rectangles together on the bottom only, using Stampin’ Seal and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut and embossed 3 leaves out from the Stitched Leaves Dies, one in Blackberry Bliss, one in Pumpkin Pie and one in Real Red. I adhered the leaves to the rectangles using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the banner just under the leaf stem using Glue Dots. I tied a knot using the 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon and adhered it to the leaf stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the 3 leaf images from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Ink on the bottom of the panel and the one leaf on the top. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the 3 leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.

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.  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 watch it on our World Card Making Day Inkin’ Krew Facebook page Here.

You can also view it on my YouTube Channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Gnome For The Holidays

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week and heading to the weekend already.  Hope you are having a very productive week. Yesterday was my only day off this week and boy did I hit the ground running when I got up.  I was non stop all day from around 6am till almost midnight.  My boss is always teasing me that I come to work to relax.

I have a fun card for you today using one of my favorite sets from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Sunday Stamps Time To Get Sketchy Challenge #240.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut another panel of ‘Tis The Season DSP using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Gnome For The Holidays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut  a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut a strip of ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered it to the top section of the card front using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few of the clear epoxy droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the sides of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the gnome image from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in the same as I did for the card.  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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  I’ve got a busy one ahead with the end of the month and the 1st of the month.  I’ll also be working at the dog bakery this week, so not much free time for me.

For today’s card I used some of the beautiful Holiday Designer Series Paper that will be on sale starting October 1st for 15% off.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a thin strip of Garden Green cardstock on the edge of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I didn’t have a rectangle the size I needed, so I made one to fit.  I cut the sentiment out part way using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut partway through.  I moved the die to the size I wanted, matching up the stitches, turned the panel around and cut partway through again.  I adhered the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a frame which I had cut using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the small boughs from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered them to the sentiment using Glue Dots.  From scraps of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock, I cut the pinecone from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Toile Tidings DSP on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 Toil 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! 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! Celebration Tidings Thanksgiving

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I hope everyone has a productive week.

Today’s card is another one we made at our virtual in person team meeting on Sunday.  My card for today was designed by one of my team members Mary.  Mary loves making collage cards and they always look incredible.   Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the 2nd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the 2 die cut rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue both on slight angles.  On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image and the line with leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink about an inch apart.  I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd smallest label from the Celebration Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon in a wide ‘Z’ to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the label on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set 2 times on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock in Early Espresso Ink and colored just the pumpkins in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  I fussy cut just the pumpkins using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the pumpkins to the label using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 2  of the small sprigs from the Celebration Labels Dies from a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and adhered them under the pumpkins using Glue Dots.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top where it overlapped the pumpkins.  I added a Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and the line with leaves image in Early Espresso Ink on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image and line with leaves image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top and bottom of the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a gorgeous one here and I had the whole weekend off from work, YAY!!!  We had our in person, virtually, team meeting yesterday, we have such an awesome team.  Even though we’re all in our own homes, I love stamping with everyone and it’s always great to be able to put the faces with their names.

Over the next couple days I will be sharing some of the projects that we made after our business meeting.   All the cards we made used the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle, but they are all so different.  My first card was designed by my Upline Jaimie.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cherry Cobbler card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the 4th smallest die and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd smallest label die from the Celebration Labels Dies and scored it in half.  I stamped the flourish image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle on the front of the label.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added a couple Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front of the label.

  On the inside of the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I adhered the label to the Shaded Spruce panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered another Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Shaded Spruce panel.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the 2 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a thin strip of Plaid 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 the card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

My niece needed a card for a friends son who’s turning 4 and she wanted something with animals.  Worked out perfectly for me.  Here’s my take on the theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  Since this is a mini embossing folder, I embossed half the panel then moved the embossing folder over to the other side, being sure to match up the dots, and embossed again.    I adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the grass die from the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the bottom of a Balmy Blue panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut 3 rectangles out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon outline image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the squirrel and mouse outline images from the Special Someone stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.  I stamped the squirrel fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink and the mouse fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill images over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I cut all the images out using my Special Day Dies.

I adhered the racoon image to the largest rectangle and the squirrel and mouse images to the smaller rectangles using Glue Dots, tucking them in the grass a little.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the strings and balloons to the squirrel and mouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On 1/4″ strips of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered them to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the outline balloon and string images from the Special Someone stamp set around the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I had stamped and cut out 2 of the racoon images on the Whisper White panel so I decided to adhere one of them to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in  Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks on the envelope flap.  I stamped the  balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.

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! 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!!
