Stampin’ Up! Season To Remember Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Season To Remember bundle has wonderful Christmas sentiments in the cling stamp set that comes with the pretty Christmas Pinecone dies. I pulled out the dies for the first time this season, and they’re so pretty!! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The design for today’s card was inspired by the sketch in Freshly Made Sketches #513:

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I embossed the stamped panel with the Merry Melody stamp set and trimmed the panel to 3-3/4″ x 5″ (this embossing panel causes shrinkage, so I sized the panel after embossing). I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat with liquid glue and popped it onto a Thick Basic White card base.

I punched one end of a strip of Painted Christmas designer series paper with the Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the embossed panel with liquid glue. I cut the large detailed pine boughs from the Christmas Pinecone dies and trimmed it so I had a few pine branches. I adhered the branches together with liquid glue. I cut the solid pinecone dies from Crumb Cake and the detailed pinecone dies from Soft Suede and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered the small pinecones to the pine branches with glue dots and the large pinecone with dimensionals.

I adhered the pinecones and branches to the card front with glue dots. I adhered some gold holly leaves and red rhinestones to the arrangement to add some bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember stamp set are simple and sweet. I love the combination of music with Christmas Greenery on a Christmas card, and every time I read the inside sentiment, I’m singing it – what could be more festive?

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set and the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies are some of the prettiest leaf sets with the beautiful Distinktive stamps, gorgeous sentiments and wonderfully detailed dies. And they go beautifully with the special Ever Eden specialty designer series paper that is available now as part of the Eden’s Garden Collection. So I paired these products for a simple hello card for today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Ever Eden specialty designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I cut two of the pretty Eden dies border from Brushed Gold foil and adhered them to the back of another panel of Ever Eden specialty DSP before adhering it to the card front.

I cut the large fern from the Forever Flourishing dies using Soft Succulent cotton paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Messages die.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and decorated it with the beautiful Garden Gems and adhered a gold trim bow to the bottom of the fern stem with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel I adhered a strip of Ever Eden specialty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Don’t you think the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set goes well with the pretty Ever Eden specialty DSP? You have similar shading in the stamped images and gentle flowing movement in the leaf sprigs – I think they’re wonderful together! And the touches of gold are so elegant! So be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp bundle is really cute and versatile and I finally got it and used it for today’s Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base. I cut a panel of Basic White with the detailed greenery frame die from the Merriest Frames Hybrid die. I carefully placed it in the Merriest Frames Hybrid embossing folder and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine to get the wonderful leafy texture. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments photopolymer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel. I stamped the spatter in Bumblebee ink along the bottom and out it out with the label die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the two flower stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped four of the leaves in Soft Succulent ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered the flowers together with liquid glue and popped them onto the card front with dimensionals. I adhered the leaves with glue dots, tucking them under the flower. I made a bow and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the flower center with three small gilded gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the corners with Cherry Cobbler flowers and Soft Succulent leaves and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments bundle is fantastic for elegant Christmas cards. the Hybrid embossing folder is great for both cutting and embossing at the same time, or embossing separately. This makes it so versatile in making different styles of cards and each one is really special!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thank You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving!! And welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set to make a Thank You card. I paired it with the Harvest Meadows designer series paper and Meadow dies for a simple, fun take on our sketch challenge. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And we have a sketch challenge this week. Here’s the pretty sketch we are using:

I cut 1″ off the side of the front of a Crumb Cake card base and embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the right side of the inside of the card with liquid glue.

I cut a Basic White panel with the scalloped border die from the Penned Flowers dies and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadows designer series paper to the front so that the stitching and scallop border showed behind it. I cut another Basic White panel with the flower from the Meadows dies and adhered it to the front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set using Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the smallest Scalloped Contours dies. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and added a clear epoxy diamond to the label. I finished the card by wrapping the fold with a length of Crumb Cake baker’s twine and tying a bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little wildflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I love the simple branches on this DSP and wanted to use today’s card to say thanks to all my blog friends. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday – Be safe and enjoy!!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes bundle. This bundle has cling stamps with snowflakes and pretty holiday sentiments and wonderful dies with stitched snowflakes. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue with the pretty snowflake embossing folder in the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I embossed the panel twice to cover the entire panel, and it left a little seam that I easily covered with the label and bow. I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat and wrapped it with white glittered ribbon, making a bow on the side. I adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.

I cut the snowflakes from Shimmery White card stock using the Stitched Snowflakes dies. I arranged them on the card front and adhered them with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Versamark ink on a Balmy Blue panel and sprinkled in with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card with dimensionals, finishing it off with a blue iridescent gem.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the snowflakes and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Snowflakes are one of my favorite Christmas card themes and the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes bundle has some pretty ones! And the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D embossing folders is so beautiful with both embossed and debossed snowflakes!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage cling stamp is a background stamp and one of those catalog hidden gems! It’s so festive and versatile – I’ve seen the pretty image embossed in silver and gold as well as colored like I did here. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped a panel of Basic White with the Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp using my Stamparatus and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used a larger panel so I could hold the panel down with the magnets and clear the stamp and I did stamp it a couple of times to get good coverage. Then I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″.

I colored the foliage with Stampin’ Blends – Soft Succulent, Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Real Red. Using the different greens makes the image so rich! Then I colored the background with my light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Pool Party and cut it out with the Tailor Made Tags die. I cut out a tag reinforcer from Real Red and adhered it to the tag with liquid glue. I looped some ruffled Real Red and Black and White Gingham ribbon through the hole and tied the ribbon with baker’s twine that I colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. I adhered the tag to the card front and added some Pool Party rhinestones for some bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the corners of a Basic White panel with the Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it to match the card front. I stamped the sentiment from Perfectly Plaid in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I love this pretty holiday greenery image! The Stampin’ Up! Festive Foliage stamp set is also great for making quick and easy Christmas cards. And with Thanksgiving this week, time’s running out for finishing up those Christmas cards, so quick and easy is important!

Stampin’ Up! November Pumpkin Kit – Gifts Galore

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin kit the day before yesterday and made the cutest treat holders. Take a look:

The Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 treat holders, 3 each of three cute designs. They are so easy to put together! Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to do it.

As you can see everything is included in the kit, including Tear & Tape, two colors of Baker’s twine and all the printed and scored card stock. Here’s a close-up of the stamp set with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Spot. The sentiments are so fun and festive!

Here is the first treat holder the happy snowman. The bags are food safe and I filled them with holiday chocolates!

I did pull out my Old Olive stamp pad to stamp the ‘to/from‘ sentiment on the gift tags. There are lines on the back of each panel where you attach the little boxes – this makes it real easy to figure out where to put the Tear & Tape! Here’s the stack of presents!

The final holder is the pretty Christmas Tree! At 4-1/2″ x 6″ these treat holders are pretty substantial! And you could tuck a gift card inside too!

While I stuffed my bags with chocolates, they are perfect for home baked goodies or any stocking stuffers.

Paper Pumpkin publishes a different kit each month. They are usually card kits, but sometimes the kits will be little containers or other projects. On the first day of the ordering period, they publish a description so you will know the theme and whether it will be a card kit or other type of project. They will give clues about the design, but the kit will be a surprise when it arrives. You need to place your order or subscribe by the 10th of each month and the kit will be delivered to your mailbox before the end of the month. And then, the crafting fun begins!! Here’s the Preview of the December kit that looks like it will make some fun cards!

The December Paper Pumpkin Kit is Lots Of Pun!

What’s not to “loaf” about a punny joke? It never hurts to have a little laughter, light-heartedness, and humor sprinkled into your schedule. If you’re a fan of fun, get a kick out of clever crafts, and can’t keep it together when you hear a classic knee-slapper, you’ll go bananas over this month’s cute ‘n’ quirky kit!

The Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough egg-citing elements to create nine cards and coordinating envelopes. From giddy gingham to splatters and stripes, this playful Paper Pumpkin kit features a fun and fresh look with one-of-a-kind patterns and designs!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Masculine Birthday Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is one of the prettiest leaf sets with gorgeous leaf stamps and wonderful dies. There are no sentiments in the set, so I used the beautiful Best Year cling stamp set for my sentiments in this masculine fall birthday card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty specialty designer series paper to the front of an Early Espresso card base. I cut a panel of Cork paper with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a copper foil mat with liquid glue.

I cut two branches with the Intricate Leaves dies from Early Espresso and adhered them to the cork panel with tiny dots of liquid glue. I cut the large leaf from copper foil and adhered it on top of the branches with tiny dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year cling stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with copper embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it over the leaf and branches with dimensionals.

I adhered the decorated panel to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three copper brushed metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel. I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set with Cinnamon Cider ink and stamped it off before stamping a leaf on the inside panel. I adhered a strip of Blackberry Beauty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is perfect for making nature themed masculine birthday cards, and this one is a bit elegant with the copper foil and the Best Year sentiments. Really nice for the Fall birthdays!

Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season bundle to make a festive wreath Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week and here’s the pretty color palette we are using – with Old Olive and Real Red it has to be a Christmas card, right?

I adhered a panel of Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to an Old Olive mat and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base. I cut the third largest scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies and adhered it to the center with liquid glue.

I used the leafy wreath die from the Seasonal Swirls dies to cut a Cinnamon Cider Wreath. I carefully cut a card from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More card pack with the pine and holly wreath die (luckily it just barely fit!) and I cut another pine and holly wreath from Old Olive. I adhered the wreaths together with dots of liquid glue and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Basic White and cut it out with the large label die from the Pretty Pillow Box dies. I was pleased at how easy it was to ink up each word and stamp them on top of each other – thank you for photopolymer!! I adhered the label to the inside of the wreath with dimensionals.

I made a bow with sheer Real Red Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath with a glue dot. I cut out six sets holly leaves from Mossy Meadow and adhered them around the wreath with glue dots and finished each leaf cluster with three red rhinestone jewels.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine boughs in stamped off Old Olive and the holly leaves in Mossy Meadow. I adhered a strip of Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love wreath Christmas cards and the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season wreaths have intricate details that are so pretty, especially when they are layered. One of the things I like to do is decorate them, just like you would do for the wreath on your front door.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest is one of my favorites from the current July – December Mini Catalog, so I was happy to use it for another fall Thank You card. And I decided to combine it with the quaint Harvest Meadow and rustic In Good Taste designer series papers for a sweet country look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the Nature’s Beauty Color Challenge at Sunday Stamps SSC269:

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadows designer series paper to a Misty Moonlight mat and popped it on the front of a Gray Granite Card base with dimensionals. I cut a stitched rectangle using the rustic wood grain In Good Taste designer series paper, adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the pretty coneflowers from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cinnamon Cider and Soft Suede. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Old Olive and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I made a triple loopy bow with Linen thread and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the card front with champagne rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the coneflower stamp with Gray Granite ink and stamped off twice before stamping the image on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the Harvest Meadow DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The beautiful coneflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set are really fun to color and they always come out beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!
