Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Let Snow For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have any plans for the weekend, since it’s here already?  I’m leaving today for Hartford, CT for OnStage.  If you follow me on Facebook, I will be posting some new sneak peaks.  I can’t wait to meet up with my fellow team members and to get my hands on the new Occasions Catalog.  I will be sharing all that I am allowed with you next week and on my Facebook page.

For today’s card I’ve made a double triangle fun fold.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #327.  Here are their colors.

I started with a full sheet of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I scored it at 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side and 5 1/2″ along the 11″ side.  I lined the cardstock up in my Paper Trimmer on a diagonal and cut.  You are now able to make 2 cards with this panel.  I folded on the 2 fold lines having the 2 triangles meeting in the center of the card.  I adhered a panel of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to each of the Real Red mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP panels to each of the triangles of the Shaded Spruce card base.

I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, which I cut using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies, to a scallop oval cut from the Layering Ovals Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Sparkle Glimmer Paper I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the snowman out using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I punched the snowman’s arms out of Soft Suede cardstock using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I adhered the arms to the back of the snowman using Glue Dots.  I adhered the snowman to the center of the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Using the Snowman Builder Punch again, I punched out a hat from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP and adhered it to the top of the snowman using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the oval.

On the top right side of the card front I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped another one of the snowman images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty 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! Merriest Wishes Penguin

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week already and only 2 more days and I leave for OnStage.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with my team members for some stamping time and socializing.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Occasions Catalog and be able to share some new things with you.

Today’s card is one that we made at our last Stamp Camp last week.  I wanted to have a variety of cards for the ladies to make.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series paper to a Real Red Mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the penguin images from the Stampin’ Up!  Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Real Red Glimmer Paper scalloped mat which I cut out using  the Layering Ovals Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bow tie image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink.  I fussy cut the bow tie using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the penguin using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the strip into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock below the matted artwork using Snail and adhered the sentiment banner on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the right of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.   I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Let It Snow Specialty 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! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween my fellow stampers!  It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone created with these colors.  Here is what I came up with.

Here are our colors for this week.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #175.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the main part of the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the tree and pompom on his hat I colored with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and the tree trunk I colored with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the snowman’s nose, hat and scarf in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scalloped circle cut from my Layering Circles Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper under the sentiment using Snail.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink and once over the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink stamping off once.  I added 2 thin strips of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pengiun Frost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  We’re half way through already, which means the weekend is right around the corner.  In just a little over 2 weeks I will be leaving for OnStage in Hartford.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with some of my team members and seeing the next Occasions Catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by my Upline’s weekly challenge she had for us.  I did both the color and sketch on the same card.  Here’s my card.

Here are her colors and sketch she gave to us to work from.

I used a technique I haven’t done in a while.  I used my Sponge Brayer on the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to change the background to Mossy Meadow.  Once I had it the shade I liked, I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the penguin image from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I stamped the scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the penguin image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and I fussy cut the scarf and hat using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon on the card front using Snail and adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from scraps of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut the swirls out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies from a scrap of Real Red Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the boughs under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the swirls over the boughs using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I had colored using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Plaid for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I was so excited to be asked to join in with the weekly ‘Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop’ and today is the first day for me to join in.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week was a fun Sketch Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects, I’m sure you will love them.  Here’s what I came up with for their sketch.

Here is the sketch I got to work from.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Shaded Spruce cardstock panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Shaded Spruce card front on top of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from Whisper White cardstock, I then embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Whisper White stitched circle to the Gold Foil scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched out 3 trees using my Pine Tree Punch, one in Cherry Cobbler, one in Shaded Spruce and one in Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce trees to the Whisper White circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP tree on top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot from a piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped 3/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the matted stitched circle using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Shaded Spruce card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I punched another tree using my Pine Tree Punch from a piece of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP and adhered it on top of the stamped trees using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce 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 plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week been?  Have you made plans for the weekend yet?  Other than working, I’m not sure what I will be doing.

I figured it was time to get started on my Christmas cards, so you’ll be seeing a lot of Christmas/Holiday cards in the next few weeks.  Here’s today’s card.

I started by folding a Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ & 1 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Gold Foil Sheet panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon around the card base and tied a bow.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  On the thin part of the Night of Navy card front I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted oval artwork to the folded edge of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the oval.  I added a few Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on top of the snowman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base on top of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in with my Stampin’ Blends Markers the same as I did for the card front artwork.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid 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!!
