Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Winter Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and I also used the Winter Snow 3D embossing folder and the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper to make sure I had enough snowflakes. Today’s card was inspired by a set of cards I saw on Pinterest made by Australian Demonstrator Gail Ellis. You can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer. Later this week I hope to get a quickie version posted to my channel too.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Winter Snow embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Whisper White note card. I adhered the Snowflake Splendor DSP panels to the Balmy Blue mats and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I could not believe that when I was Live, I put my liquid glue on the wrong side of the designer series paper!! So I had to change things up a bit and stamped in Pacific Point instead of Balmy Blue. The color is a little more intense, but everything still goes together beautifully!

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set to a Whisper White panel in Pacific Point ink and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some Snowflake Splendor ribbon to the back and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I cut two small snowflakes and a medium snowflake from Balmy Blue glimmer paper with the So Many Snowflakes dies from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle and adhered them to the card front. I finished the card with a blue gem.

I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set in Pacific Point ink after stamping off in the corners of the inside of the card. I also stamped the outside of the envelope with Pacific Point snowflakes to match.

The Whisper White note cards and envelopes are perfect for a quick little thank you note – they are nice and thick, and don’t need an inside panel. Layered panel card designs like this one are a good use for those little scraps of pretty DSP that you can’t bear to throw out. And sending a quick thank you after Christmas is a nice way to reach out and let the joy of the season linger a little longer.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Christmas Card II

Good Morning! Today am sharing another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly photopolymer stamp set. Earlier this week I used the stamp set to make another Christmas card – you can check it out here – that has a different look, showing the versatility of this beautiful stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the outline holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the corresponding solid leaves stamps in Just Jade to fill in the leaves and the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink. I adhered the panel to a Gold foil mat with liquid glue and then popped it on the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in versamark ink on a Cherry Cobbler panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I tied a loopy bow with gold trim and adhered it to the back with a glue dot. I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three gilded gems.

I stamped corners of a Whisper White panel with one of the holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce, Just Jade and Cherry Cobbler ink like the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas cling stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This card was simpler to make than the previous Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly card, and I think it’s just as beautiful. With this design you can appreciate how elegant and graceful the holly branches are. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek

Good Friday Morning! Today am sharing a sneak peek of a card that uses the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set from the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. My card is CASE’d from one that Melody Hyde presented at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home event a few weeks back. While Melody used new designer series paper, I paired the stamp set with the In Good Taste DSP. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Pretty Peacock with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base. I used two sizes of the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut the wood grained and the gesso canvas papers from the In Good Taste designer series paper. I stamped the small seed pods from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink randomly across the die cut wood grained paper.

I stamped the large seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the die cut gesso canvas DSP panel. I colored it with Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I brushed some Pool Party Stampin’ Blends on the right side of the pod like a shadow and used the Color Lifter to blend the line. I adhered the In Good Taste paper panels to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Whisper White strip and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I folded a length of sheer Pool Party ribbon and adhered it behind the label. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with blue sequins.

I stamped the seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a small panel of the gesso canvas DSP and colored it to match the front. I stamped the little seed pods on a small panel of the wood grained DSP. I adhered the little panels of the In Good Taste DSP to the lower corner of a Whisper white panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

A cute little nature themed note card! The In Good Taste designer series papers have so many different textures that coordinate beautifully with nature themed stamp sets like the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set. With all the different images and sweet sentiments, this stamp set belongs on every wish list for the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle with the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to make a traditional Christmas Card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the festive color palette we are using for our projects:

Adhere the strip of colorful holly paper to the panel of red holly ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with liquid glue. Adhered the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the front of a Real Red card base. Adhere the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP to a Shaded Spruce mat and then adhere it to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Shaded Spruce. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. Trim the end with the Banner Pick A Punch and adhere it to the card front. Using the Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle, cut the three largest petal clusters from Red Velvet paper with the middle embossing panel. Adhere the layers together with liquid glue.

Cut one of each leaf from the Poinsettia Dies from Garden Green and cut the flower center and berry sprig from gold foil. Adhere the flower center to the poinsettia with a glue dot and adhere the flower to the card front with more glue dots. Add liquid glue to the leaves and gold berry sprig and tuck them under the poinsettia. Finish the card front with three Wonderful Gems.

Stamp the poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and adhere another strip of plaid ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle makes the most beautiful 3d poinsettia flower for Christmas cards. And the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper is so festive – any card made with it is sure to bring holiday!

Stampin’ Up! Well Said with Trimming The Town Welcome Card

Good Morning! Do you have new neighbors? Well I have the perfect card for the occasion – a Welcome card made with the wonderful Trimming the Town designer series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Well Said stamp set! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Today’s card is inspired by the simply perfect #TGIFC290 sketch at TGIF Challenges:

I adhered a panel of Trimming the Town designer series paper to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base. I cut a stitched oval from Pool Party card stock using the Stitched Shapes dies. I cut the top of a snow bank with the Home Together Dies and cut the bottom with the same stitched oval die and adhered the snow bank to the oval.

I cut a house from the Trimming the Town DSP with a coordinating die from the Home Together Dies and cut two trees from the same paper – isn’t it nice when the dies match the designer series paper? I used the house die to cut a Whisper White House and adhered it to the back of the DSP house. I adhered the large tree to the oval and the small tree to the house. I adhered the oval to the card front and popped the house on the oval with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Adhesive sheets to the back of a strip of Old Olive card stock and cut two ‘welcome’ words with the Well Written dies. I peeled the cover off of one of the words and adhered the two words together and peeled the cover off and adhered the word to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White panel. I fussy cut some small houses from another sheet of Trimming the Town designer series paper and adhered them to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Wouldn’t this card make you feel welcome to a new neighborhood? The Trimming the Town designer series paper has many wonderful Winter images that make beautiful cards. The small houses perfectly match the large houses, so they were perfect for placing at the bottom of the inside panel of this card. And the Stampin’ Up! Well Said and Well Written stamps and dies coordinate perfectly!
