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! Poinsettia Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m working at the dog bakery again today.  The owner asked me a couple weeks ago if I could fill in yesterday and today.  I haven’t worked there since the whole pandemic started.  Her business really took a hit and it’s still trying to work it’s way back up.

For today I made a corner fold card and made it into a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by scoring and folding my card base.

I scored the card base at 5 1/2″ then move it over to 4 1/4″ and made a small pencil mark.  I scored from the pencil mark to the opposite corner.

I folded the corner down to like the pictures above.

I adhered a strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel in Balmy Blue Ink, I stamped the large poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set twice, the medium one once and the smaller one once.  I stamped the large poinsettia a 3rd time in Old Olive Ink.  On the Balmy Blue flowers, I went around the tops of the flowers and the veins with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to move the color around to give it just a light tint of the blue.  I colored the Old Olive flower in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies and cut one of the extra small flower.  I went over the extra small flower with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker and then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to just give it a hint of color.  I adhered the Balmy Blue flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the centers.  I cut the Old Olive flower leaves apart and adhered them to the back of the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a few of the foliage pieces out from my Poinsettia Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  I adhered them to the back of the flower using Glue Dots.

I cut a 4″ X 4″ panel of Whisper White panel in half diagonally and embossed one of the panels using my Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the folded card front panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the poinsettia to the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the flower center using a Glue Dot.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the other half of the 4″ X 4″ panel and adhered it to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place 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! Snowflake Wishes for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I know some are still without power after the hurricane on Tuesday here and are not expecting it back until next week.  I’m hoping that you get power back sooner than expected.  My heart goes out to you.

I have a drapery card for you today. I have made a diagram for you that I attached below explaining how to make the folded panel.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I embossed the panel using the new Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I cut and scored a 4″ X 11 1/2″ panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper as in the diagram below.

I adhered the folded panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the card front and tied a small bow.  I tacked the bow in place using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  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 Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, above the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the side of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope in Misty Moonlight Ink.  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!!
