Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Christmas CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? By the time you read this my house will be full of workers and lots of noise being made. I wasn’t expecting them to come this early today, but I guess they want to get a jump on things. Last night we were running around getting the last of anything left around put away and we had to pack our suitcases and laptops to be out of the way first thing. I have my bag packed up with my Paper Pumpkin kits to work on in the hotel room at night. My kitchen is now full of furniture along with the POD outside and we borrowed my neighbors garage too. I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end, but after working later than usual yesterday and coming home and finding out how early they were showing up I’m ready for a nap already. The good news it I will have all brand new floors for the holidays.

With that being said, I have a really quick and easy card for you today. I couldn’t fuss too much with this one. Here’s my card.

I let the Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me along with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I started by adhering a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a piece of the 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with some Stampin’ Seal, then adhering it to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel, some stamped in full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered a strip of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off. I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try. This Feels Like Frost DSP has beautiful life like images that do all the work. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Baby Shower Card

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. Well, another OnStage in the books. Even though it was virtual, it was still a lot of fun and very informative. I’m already looking forward to next years in Philadelphia, we’re already getting our group together. OnStage is one of the many perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. We’ve already gotten to see new products coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration. We were even able to order some items already that I will get to show you soon. If you are interested in joining my team, I’d be more than happy to help you.

For today’s card my son’s girlfriend asked me to make her a baby shower card. I don’t really have any baby stamp sets since I don’t have babies in my life. But I was able to work with what I had and came up with this card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalog to make my card for today. Just a reminder, when you buy the stamp sets and dies as a bundle you save 10%.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the birds nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the 2 bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in 3 steps. The detailed images I stamped in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once. The solid images I stamped in Sahara Sand Ink, stamped off once. The wing images I stamped in Sahara Sand Ink. The eggs image I stamped in Seaside Spray Ink. I cut all the images out using my Birds & More Dies.

On another panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the small leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the branches. I cut the Whisper White panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the birds feet image from the Birds & Branches stamp set, on the nest in Early Espresso Ink then adhered the birds on top of their feet using Glue Dots. I adhered the nest with the birds to the stamped branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the eggs to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the top sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the bottom sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped just the top of the birds nest from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the 2 bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set the same as I did for the front of the card. I had stamped extra eggs from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink and cut them out using the Birds & More Dies, so I added one to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the branches. I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper 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!!

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I have a Clean and Simple card for you today that is also Quick and Easy. I think this may have taken me 10 minutes to make. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge # 086. Here is their board. I went down the right side.

I started by adhering a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied a bow. I separated the trim a little on the bow to open the weave.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered 2 strips of ‘Tis The Season DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 adhered a strip of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the bottom of the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Leaves CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have any plans?  I have off today, but I’m not sure yet what I will be doing.

I have a Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy fall card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #348.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the 2nd largest rectangle from my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 3 leaves out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I sponged some Mint Macaron Ink on the leaves and then crinkled them.  I adhered the leaves to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment label.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, once full strength and once stamped off, on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, 1 full strength and 1 stamped off.  I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn 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! Beautiful Autumn Hello 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?  We have a couple new hoppers with our group. Welcome Julie Johnson and Nicole Bloxom, so excited that you joined us.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the fun sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I played along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge #506.  I went across the top. Here is their board.

I also joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #129. Their theme is ‘Just Saying Hello’.

I started by cutting 5 each of the smallest square from the Layering Squares Dies in Cajun Craze Cardstock, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I embossed the Cajun Craze squares using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and I embossed the Crumb Cake squares using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.

I arranged the squares on a panel of Copper Brushed Metallic Paper and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the outline maple leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image.  I stamped 2 of the outline oak leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and the fill image of the oak leaf in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped 3 of the acorn outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the fill images of the acorn in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, for the top and Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once, for the bottom.  I stamped 2 of the pinecone outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the fill image from the pinecone image in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off twice, over the outlined image.  Using the Autumn Punch Pack I punched out the acorns, maple leaves and oak leaves, I fussy cut the pinecones using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the acorns, leaves and pinecones on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals in each cardstock square.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the metallic card front adhering it in the back using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Metallic ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the basket weave ribbon and tied a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set around the sentiment the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper 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! Sweetest Time Christmas

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  My daughter is coming home today, YAY!!!  She’s great being away for the first few days, by mid week she’s ready to come home.  It’ll be great having her back.  For the first time in 36 years that I’ve been working at the store I messed up.  I got up, dressed and went into work yesterday, just like I do every weekend.  The difference was that I wasn’t scheduled to work until today.  I make the monthly schedule up for everyone and I couldn’t remember that I wasn’t working.  I felt so foolish, but at the same time, I had a nice early start to my day yesterday.  I’ll be at work all day today, we double checked the schedule to make sure 😉

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you using another new set from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #519.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #470.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Seal.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the candle image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set on top of the candles in So Saffron Ink.  I colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Marker and the center one in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the images again on another panel of Whisper White cardstock, colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.

I embossed a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 fussy cut candles to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Seaside Spray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the image out using one of the dies from the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front, sneaking it just under the artwork, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink and colored it in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!
