Stampin’ Up! Season of Fun for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m supposed to be starting and finishing my baking this weekend. As most of you know, it’s been a pretty long 3-4 weeks of me being sick. I’m hoping to feel up to getting my baking done or I may have a lot of disappointed people that wait for my cookies.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Christmas Tree, Decorations of Favorite Card.  I decided to use my favorite card that I’ve made this past year. My card is one that I made back in October at our team Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie started doing a Mystery Stamping night once a month with our team. She gives us the measurements of cardstock and DSP. We have to pick the colors, image(s), sentiment and DSP we want to use. This was one of my favorite Christmas cards that I made so I decided to share it again. I just love all the images of this stamp set, but especially this one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season’s of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge HOL21. How are you inspired by this photo? Share your tree, holiday decorations or your favorite card from this past year.

I started by embossing a Soft Succulent card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. This is a small embossing folder, so I had to emboss one side of the cardstock, then move the paper over and emboss the other side. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. I adhered another panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the fussy cut images to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the layout that Jaimie was telling us to do, we were suppose to adhered the image to the top of the layered panel, mine just wasn’t going to work that way so I had to switch it around.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it toe the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the images in the same as I did for the card front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink around the girl and dog images, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the little girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Sorry I missed another live this week. I’m really hoping to be back soon. I miss everyone. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be at work all weekend, but taking it really easy (I hope).

So I thought I was done making all my Christmas cards, then my husband said “I need 2 cards for the bosses at work”, UGH! So here’s what I came up with for 1 of them. I’m really hoping he can pick one of my already made cards for the other one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from the Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #271.

Today’s is a really simple fun fold we made a similar card at our team meeting this past Sunday. I scored and folded a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered it to the right inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Tear & Tape.

I started by adhering a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the front panel of the Soft Succulent card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Snowbody Better stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Misty Moonlight, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed is using my Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Decorative Matte Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the left side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set below the 1st sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the right side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base, over the Cherry Cobbler panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas 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!!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the scroll image from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the sentiment. Using my Stitched Snowflakes Dies, I cut the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Sneak Peak Christmas

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I hope you are having a relaxing one.

I have a sneak peek for you today using another stamp set that will be coming in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I really love this set, it’s sketched images which are my favorite. I did a little paper piecing for my card today too. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Misty Moonlight card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I wrapped a piece of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the In The Moment stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from In The Moment stamp set on the same panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut it out using my Layering Circles Dies.

I stamped the image again on a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the pillow and blanket using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the artwork using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the largest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front tucked under the artwork. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Decorative Matte Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas 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 maybe have this set on your wish list for when the new catalog goes live. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Bundle along with the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here are our colors for this week.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. Since this is a smaller folder, I first embossed one side of the cardstock and then embossed the other. I adhered a panel of Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP in the center of the card front covering up the seam where I embossed. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of a panel of Basic White cardstock in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I embossed the panel using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Real Red mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the snowflake cookie from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Gingerbread Dies. I cut the detailed snowflake from a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the Cinnamon Cider snowflake using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 more of the snowflake cookies from a panel of the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP using the Gingerbread Dies. I adhered the 2 snowflake cookies from the DSP to the layered embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Cinnamon Cider snowflake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the snowflake.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake image from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake image from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink twice on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Gingerbread & Peppermint 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! Words of Cheer for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Bundle for my card today.

Our theme this week is ‘Christmas’.

My colors are from Colours & Sketches Challenge #444.

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Real Red card front. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using my Christmas Cheer Dies. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the detailed word image using my Christmas Cheer Dies. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the letters from the Christmas Cheer Dies. I adhered the letters to the detailed word die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Real Red Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Real Red Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Season’s Of Fun Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend and Halloween. How many or you love Halloween? I have to admit, it’s not my favorite holiday, but I do love seeing the little ones dressed up. We don’t get many trick or treaters at my house.

Today’s card I made last night at out team Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie started doing a Mystery Stamping night once a month with our team. She gives us the measurements of cardstock and DSP. We have to pick the colors, image(s), sentiment and DSP we want to use. Here is what I came up with for Mystery Stamping night.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season’s of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card. This stamp set is only available for orders over $150 or if you host a party. If you’d like more information about hosting a party, I’d be more than happy to talk to you about it and set up a Host Code for you. Drop me a not at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and we can talk.

I started by embossing a Soft Succulent card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. This is a small embossing folder, so I had to emboss one side of the cardstock, then move the paper over and emboss the other side. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. I adhered another panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the fussy cut images to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the layout that Jaimie was telling us to do, we were suppose to adhered the image to the top of the layered panel, mine just wasn’t going to work that way so I had to switch it around.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it toe the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the images in the same as I did for the card front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink around the girl and dog images, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the little girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on the downhill to the weekend. WOW!! October is just flying by.

Today I have a clean and simple card for you which I actually had fun making. Today’s card can be used as a friendship card, birthday card, holiday card or anything else you can think of. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snowbody Better Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #441.

My colors are from Global Design Project Challenge #313.

I started by adhering a Tiding of Christmas DSP card front to a Sahara Sand card base.

I cut a panel of Real Red cardstock using the Basic Borders Dies. I embossed the panel using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the top of the card front.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowbody Better stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowbody Better stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowbody Better stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas 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! Snow Wonder

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going?

Last week my upline decided that each month we’re going to do a Mystery Stamping event so that we can get together to stamp virtually. Today’s card is the one that I made during that. It was really hard because she gave us all the measurements of the cardstock, but didn’t tell us anything else. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait for next months. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set along with the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a small panel of Basic Gray cardstock using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Peaceful Place Spec. DSP to the Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored just the holly, berries and scarf in using my Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Snow Time Dies.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Snow Time Dies, keeping the sentiment as far to the left as possible. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Glue Dots. I overlapped the snowman with the sentiment just a little and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Place Spec. 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!!
