Stampin’ Up! Curvy Celebrations Sneak Peek

Have you seen the stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Celebrations? Here’s a sneak peek – I used the Quite Curvy bundle for my card today and paired it with the Classic Christmas designer series paper and some of the sentiments from the Curvy Christmas stamp set to make a festive floral Christmas bouquet! All of these items will be available on November 3 when the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Celebrations starts! You can find the currently available supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere a panel of the Shaded Spruce Classic Christmas designer series paper (available Nov 3) to the front of a Real Red card base. Emboss a panel of Whisper White with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder and adhere it to the card front.

Stamp three floral branches from the Quite Curvy photopolymer stamp (available Nov 3) set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White. Cut them out with the coordinating die and color them with Real Red and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. Cut four sprigs from Shaded Spruce from the Curvy Dies (available Nov 3). Adhere the arrangement to the embossed panel with liquid glue.

Stamp the bow from the Curvy Christmas photopolymer stamp (available Nov 3) set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and color it wit Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut the bow with paper snips. Stamp the sentiment from the Curvy Christmas stamp set (available Nov 3) in Real Red ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the Ornate Frames tiny tag die. Tie a piece of gold trim through the hole and adhere the tag to the card with dimensionals. Adhere the bow over the tag with dimensionals and accent the card front with red rhinestones.

Stamp the sentiment from the Curvy Christmas stamp set (available Nov 3) in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the branch under the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and adhere a thin strip of Shaded Spruce Classic Christmas DSP (available Nov 3) to the bottom. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

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 pretty Poinsettia Place designer series paper to make a simple 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 color palette we are using for our projects:

Adhere a panel of the holly Poinsettia Place designer series paper to a Soft Suede mat and pop it on the front of an Old Olive card base. Stamp the Merry Christmas greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. Adhere it to the lower part of the card.

Cut out three of the leaves from the Poinsettia Dies (two large and one small) from Garden Green card stock. Use both the cutting and embossing dies. Cut out three berry sprigs from Bumblebee card stock and six poinsettia petals from Real Red. Cut out two of the smallest and two of the largest and one of each to the other sizes. Use both the cutting and embossing dies.

Gently bend the poinsettia petals backwards with your fingers and adhere the layers with liquid glue. Position the petals so that the upper layer falls between the petals on the lower layer with the largest on the bottom. Gently bend the tips of the leaves backwards with your fingers. Adhere the leaves and berry branches with liquid glue and the flower with glue dots. Finish the flower center with a beaded pearl and trim the label with a Real Red bow.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the berry sprig in Soft Suede ink next to the sentiment and stamp the berries in Real Red. Trim the bottom with a strip of Poinsettia Place designer series paper and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle make the most beautiful dimensional poinsettias that are great for cards and tags and any other Christmas project! And they are a perfect when paired with the Poinsettia Place designer series paper, which is currently on sale this month at a 15% discount!

Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet

Good Morning! Today I want to show you a pair of versatile Christmas products called the Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet kit and Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet photopolymer stamp set. The Tag Buffet kit has supplies to make 30 gorgeous tags – five each of 6 different designs. You can see the contents of the kit in the picture below. The tags are double layered, with gold foil accents, gorgeous images and laser cuts. Plus it all comes in the cute holly box!

Here is the tag that I made featuring the Christmas Tree. It’s a gorgeous tree and I added some red rhinestones and made it pretty much according to the instructions included. Note the pretty sentiment – it’s from the Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet photopolymer stamp set. The labels in the kit are perfectly sized to fit the sentiments in the stamp set.

Before I talk more about the stamp set, I want to show that the tags can easily be made into cards. Here I made a Real Red card base and adhered a Real Red panel that was embossed with the Winter Snow 3D embossing folder. I made the pretty stocking tag according to the kit instructions and adhered it to the front of the embossed card base. Rather than using the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet stamp set, I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas and stamped it on a pretty circle die cut from Tasteful Labels dies. I wanted to show that you can use the tags with many different Christmas stamp sets, including some that you may have in your current stash!

But I think the Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet stamp set is perfect for the tag project kit. And when you’ve completed all the tags, you can still use the stamp set on it’s own! Here’s a card that I made with the stamps, along with the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper and the Painted Labels Dies. Isn’t that Merry Christmas sentiment beautiful!!

Here is the inside of the card showing the wonderful inside Christmas greeting.

Here is a closeup of the pretty stamp set. You can see how beautifully the stamps coordinate with the images in the Stampin’ Up! Tag Buffet kit. With both, you can pretty Christmas cards with coordinating tags for all your special holiday gift needs.

And the pretty Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper that I used in my last card is on sale this month!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have another Christmas Card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundles. For this card, I used the petal stamps with the outline dies to give definition to the flower petals and I paired the Poinsettia with the Poinsettia Place designer series paper that has a similar floral pattern. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere the strip of wood grain Poinsettia Place DSP to the floral DSP and adhere them both to a Soft Suede mat. Pop it on the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink and trim the end with the Banners Pick A Punch. Adhere the label to the bottom of the card

Cut the medium pine bough from Old Olive card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhere the bough to the card. Stamp three leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green ink on Garden Green card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die. Stamp two berry branches from Bumblebee card stock using the Poinsettia Dies and adhere them to the card front.

Stamp two of the large poinsettia petal clusters and one each of the small and medium cluster from he Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White. Stamp the inside accents in Bumblebee ink. Cut each cluster out with the coordinating die. Gently curl the petals down with your bone folder and adhere them together, with the smallest on top. Brush clear Wink of Stella on the petals to add some sparkle. Adhere the flower to the card front with glue dots. Accent the center with red Wonderful Gems. Make a Real Red bow and adhere it to the card, tucking it under the flower.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the Poinsettia flower next to the sentiment in Bumblebee ink and adhere a strip of floral Poinsettia Place DSP to the bottom. Adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and adhere it all to the inside of the card.

I’ve made a few other cards with this beautiful flower, but this is the first one that I have stamped. And this is the first one that I have paired with the beautiful Poinsettia Place DSP which is one of the DSP paper packs that is currently on sale at a 15% discount – YAY!!.

Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another card that I made for World Card Making Day. This time, I made another Christmas Card with the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle. This is one of my favorites from the Aug-Dec Mini catalog because it is so versatile for making tree themed Christmas Cards. And I paired it with some of the pretty papers from the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper pack which is currently on sale (see below)! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Cut out the scalloped oval from Whisper White card stock using the Layering Ovals Dies. Cut out the regular oval from the Mossy Meadow dotted paper in the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper pack. Use the die from the Pine Woods Dies (which comes in the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle) to cut out the center of the Mossy Meadow dotted oval. Adhere the tree oval to the Whisper White scalloped oval.

Adhere the Pear Pizzazz strip to the Real Red background paper, both papers from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP pack and adhere the layered DSP to a Whisper White mat. Wrap a length of the Real Red sheer ribbon around the panel and secure it in the back. Pop it on the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals and pop the layered oval tree on the panel with dimensionals.

Adhere a bow next to the oval on the ribbon strip and trim the ends. Punch the ends of a Whisper White strip with the Banners Pick a Punch and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Real Red Ink. Adhere the label to the tree oval and decorate the card front with red rhinestones.

Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Hope cling stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the medium outline tree from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink, after stamping off twice, next to the sentiment. Adhere a strip of the Real Red Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up In The Pines bundle is such a versatile set – you may recall that I used another tree die cut from this set for my card last Friday and achieved a completely different look. This bundle is a must have for making Christmas Tree cards!! Click on the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

The Facebook Live video where I made the card is in the Inkin’ Krew World Card Making Day group. I’m still working on linking it to my Facebook Business page so you can view it there. I also plan to edit the video and post a shortened version on my YouTube Channel by the end of the week. Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Week!!

Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Seasons Greetings Card

Good Morning! Today I have Christmas Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle. I used two different styles of the trees – the stamped and die cut tree to create a card with pine trees in a snowy field. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock.

Stamp the outline image of the row of small trees from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the corresponding filler image using Old Olive ink after stamping off once. Use the sponge brayer to color the sky using Balmy Blue and Pool Party inks, with the darkest color on top.

Cut a panel of Whisper White with the snow bank die and adhere it to the stamped panel below the trees. Cut the large tree with the Pine Woods Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. Cut the Whisper White panel with the snow bank die and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines stamp set in Real Red ink in the corner.

Adhere the tree to the panel with dimensionals and adhere the stamped snow bank with dimensionals. Adhere the panel to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue and scatter the sky with adhesive backed snowflake sequins.

Stamp the outline image of the row of small trees from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink in the lower corner of a Whisper White panel. Stamp the corresponding filler image using Old Olive ink after stamping off once. Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Hope cling stamp set in Real Red ink and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The die cut tree from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines bundle is the prettiest pine tree, and it goes so well with the stamped trees. And the curved dies are perfect for creating snow banks. Click on the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Merry Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have a modern Christmas Tree Christmas card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies and a selection of Garden Green designer series papers from several sources. The large tree with the gold foil comes from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack. The next tree comes from the Poinsettia Place designer series paper pack and the last three come from the ‘Tis The Season 6″x6″ designer series paper pack. My goal was to find different patterns of DSP, but they all had to be Garden Green! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cherry Cobbler striped ‘Tis The Season DSP to a Real Red panel to give it more stiffness since it is adhered with dimensionals. I cut the thicker strip of gold foil with the circle border die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the thin gold foil strip to the top of the panel.

I cut the large tree from the gold pine branch card from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies. I used one of the smaller dies from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies to cut trees from the ‘Tis The Season and Poinsettia Place Garden Green designer series papers. I arranged the trees on the striped Cherry Cobbler panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the large tree to the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark Ink on the strip of Real Red and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered the embossed strip to the bottom front of Real Red card base with liquid glue. I adhered the tree panel to a the front of the card base with dimensionals, covering the seam of the label. I sprinkles some red rhinestones across the top of the card to give it some sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut another tree from the gold pine branch card from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack using the smaller tree from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies and adhered it next to the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Cherry Cobbler striped ‘Tis The Season DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I love the modern look of triangle trees on Christmas cards, so I was thrilled when the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies came out. I hope you like it too!
