Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Christmas Cheer Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another snowman Christmas Card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set and Let it Snow designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the Mojo Monday 526 Sketch Challenge layout for this card. I love the fishtail banners in this sketch and the Let it Snow DSP has so many pretty papers that look good together that I just had to make another snowman card with the layered look. Here is the sketch:

I embossed a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. I cut the different pieces of Let it Snow DSP and arranged them on the embossed panel according to the sketch and adhered them with liquid glue.

I stamped the happy snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set on a panel of Shimmery White card stock and cut it out with the large circle from the Stitched shapes dies. I colored it with Real Red, Pool Party, shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I added the little snow balls from the Let it Snow embellishment pack with liquid glue and then added a Real Red scalloped mat made from largest scalloped circle from the Layered circles dies. I adhered the layered circle to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set using Versamark ink on a strip of Real Red card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the ends of the label and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the little snowmen from the Let it Snow DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Coastal Cabana mat before attaching it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set is so cute and I have made so many different whimsical Christmas Cards with it. The Let it Snow designer series paper is also so cute and whimsical and the designs make the sweetest Christmas cards. I love the combination of the Real Red with the Coastal Cabana!

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Today I made a Christmas Card using the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set and Four Petal Punch for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. These flowers reminded me of poinsettias and I love poinsettia Christmas cards, so I made a background full of poinsettias for my card today.

We have a sketch challenge in the Blog Hop this week, and here is the sketch we are using:

I started by stamping 18 of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on shimmery white card stock. I punched them out with the four petal punch and colored them with the Cherry Cobbler Light Stampin’ Blends. I stamped 18 of the flower centers in Mango Melody ink on shimmery white card stock and fussy cut then with my paper snips. I adhered a flower center to each Cherry Cobbler flower.

I took a panel of Whisper White and embossed it with the tufted embossing folder and arranged the flowers all over the embossed panel, going off the edges. I adhered them with liquid glue and trimmed the flowers to be even with the embossed panel. I adhered it to a Basic Black mat with liquid glue and then to a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals.

I die cut the medium branch from the Beautiful Boughs dies from a panel of Mossy Meadow and the small pine cone pieces from Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I colored a strip of the Whisper White Flax ribbon with Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and trimmed the ends. I stamped the Sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Cherry Cobbler and die cut it with the small label from the Beautiful Boughs dies. I arranged the pieces on the bottom of the card front and adhered them with glue dots and dimensionals. I finished off the arrangement with a tied strip of the polka dot tulle ribbon and yellow gems.

I decorated the inside of the card by adhering a small die cut Mossy Meadow branch from the Beautiful Boughs dies and another flower to a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

It’s hard to see the diamond pattern from the Tufted Embossing folder or the shimmer on the flowers, but these textures add depth and richness to the background.

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals Thank You Card

Good Morning! I need some thank you cards and I have been working on a post for later this week using the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set. I found a pretty card on Pinterest that was made by Tammy Beard of StampinSavvy.com here and was inspired to make one similar but with fall colors. I’m not sure I succeeded, but it was a lot of fun playing with different colors and stamping a card rather than relying on die cuts.

Here’s the Facebook Live video where I demonstrated how to make the card.

In the video, I used the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set to make the Rich Razzleberry and Mango Melody card with the Mossy Meadow leaves. I started by stamping the Mango Melody flowers, and then the Rich Razzleberry flowers, and then filling in with leaves. I finish off the card front by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love what you Do in Memento Tuxedo Black and I use the Stamparatus so that I can stamp twice to get good coverage. I also show how to curve the petals on the punched flower so that you can get a dimensional look. And I used a black sharpie so that I wouldn’t harm the tip of my Stampin’ Blend on the faceted gems to color it black before applying it to the center flower.

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

It was fun to make a card that had a lot of stamping and was not for Christmas. And you’ll note that I did make two boo boos by rocking the leaf stamp instead of bringing it straight up and down – now I have an example for why you shouldn’t do this. Finally, thank you Tammy for the wonderful inspiration!

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here Birthday Card

Good Morning! The beautiful Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here suite is finally available for a limited time beginning today and I made a birthday card using the beautiful Christmastime Is Here specialty designer series paper. The Christmastime Is Here DSP has three designs, one with large rose bouquets, one in Cherry Cobbler with diamonds and one with small roses. And it’s specialty because it has touches of gold foil throughout. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Old Olive card stock with the Stylish Scrolls embossing folder and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I covered the bottom with a panel of the Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here designer series paper with the small roses and wrapped a length of the gold shimmer ribbon around the seam. I adhered it in the back with snail and added some tape to secure it.

I die cut the large rose bouquet from the Christmastime is Here DSP and die cut another piece from Whisper White and adhered it to the back to stiffen it. I added it to the panel with dimensionals. I added 5 drops of shimmer crystal effects to the large rose so it looks like dew. I made a bow from the gold shimmer ribbon and adhered it with glue dots.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Versamark ink on a scrap of Cherry Cobbler. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies. I die cut it twice, so that it would be skinnier and fit the sentiment better. This was pretty easy since the edges are straight – I just shifted it over for the second cut, making sure the sentiment was centered. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue and added a gold glitter enamel dot. With the front panel finished, I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

In the center of the inside panel, I stamped the large bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Rose stamp set in Delicata gold ink on a Whisper White. I added a strip of the small rose paper to the bottom and adhered it to Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler mats before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The designs in the Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here suite are beautiful and elegant and not just for Christmas. They will delight any lady with a winter birthday!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas photopolymer stamp set for my card today and here is my card.

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

My card design was inspired by the Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP465:

I started by adhering a strip of striped Let it Snow specialty designer series paper to a panel of snowflake paper and then adhering them both to a Real Red mat. I die cut a stitched square from Whisper White and ran it through the Winter Knit 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to a scalloped square and then to the Let it Snow background panel.

I die cut the cup from the Cup of Cheer dies from Real Red and the poinsettia from Whisper White. I adhered these together with the fine-tip glue pen. I die cut the candy cane from Real Red and Whisper White and adhered them together with the fine tip-glue pen. I adhered the candy cane to the back of the mug and attached them to the embossed panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas stamp set in Real Red on a panel of Whisper White and cut it out with a stitched circle die. I matted in a Real Red scalloped circle and added two Shaded Spruce die cut holly leaves and three Real Red enamel glitter dots. I adhered the label to the Let it Snow panel with dimensionals and then adhered the finished panel to a Coastal Cabana card base with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card with die cut Shaded Spruce holly leaves and Real Red berries on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas stamp set in Real Red and added a strip of the snowflake Let it Snow DSP to the bottom. I adhered it to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue.
