Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? I’m not sure, but I think my husband might be going to cut our tree. I’ll be working all weekend I believe.

I thought I was done making my Christmas cards and my husband asked me to make a card for his department to give their supervisor. Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made. I used a few stamp set for my card, but the main set I used was the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set.

I played along with The Spot Challenge #140. Their theme is Holiday Throwdown (Over the Top Holiday Cards).

I started by adhering 8 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Warm & Toasty stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP. I adhered the DSP to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 4 of the animal images from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Just Jade, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips. Using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut 3 of the snow drift dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I adhered a strip of Silver Foil sheet to the top snow drift using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the snow drifts together using Glue Dots on the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top one. I stamped the snow image in Balmy Blue Ink on the drifts to give them a little dimension. I adhered the snow drifts to the card base using Tear & Tape on the top section and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom.

I adhered the cut images to the card front and snow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After I added them I felt like the inside still needed a little something, so I added a tall pine tree I had cut from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Pine Woods Dies. I also stamped the tree cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered the tall pine tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the tree cluster using Glue Dots.

This is how the card looks when it is sitting on a table, so you can see how it is folded.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set the the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top. I adhered the Whisper white panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin Seal and then adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 2 of the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink and cut them out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered them to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty Yule CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? We had a rainy day yesterday, but today is sunny, cold and windy. I’m looking forward to our quarterly ‘In-Person” team meeting today virtually. I always have so much fun at our meetings getting together with my team members, talking and laughing. Hopefully by the next meeting we will be able to really meet in person again.

Just when I thought I was done with my Christmas cards, my aunt asked to make 7 special cards for her. She said she would rather buy them from me than the store, which I was honored about. I used the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set for today’s.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #485. Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #622. Here are their colors.

I also played along with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #520. Here is their theme.

I started by embossing panels of Cherry Cobbler and Real Red cardstock using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder and adhering them to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in the center of the embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the adorable deer from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the end into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot on the end overlapping the artwork.

I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside yet. This one is for her Great Grandson and I need to see what she wants. I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set on the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler 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 deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the ‘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! 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty Cool Yule

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your weekend started off?  I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we are doing tomorrow, if anything.

I’m on a roll with Christmas cards now.  I need to get 50 done by the beginning of December.  I figured as long as I try to get 3-5 done a week I should be good.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #468.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, to the left side using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable deer image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set above the deer in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the top of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and embossed the panel using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a piece of the Gold Metallic Trim, form the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, to the top of the tag and frayed it.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of the panel.  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 deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 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!!

I’m cleaning my shelves and drawers out to make room for lots of new goodie.  I have my list right HERE and I’m trying to keep it up to date.   Check it out and let me know if there is anything you’d like to get.  If you are looking for something and don’t see it on the list, drop me a line and I will look through my stash to see if I missed it.  I have lots of older DSP too that I don’t have listed if there is any that you are looking for.
