Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is a CAS (clean and simple) card made with the fun Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle with a pretty embossed background You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week and our theme is Christmas!

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the fun Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic White mat.

I used the ornament dies from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle to cut outlines from Real Red, Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party glimmer paper. I used a dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ blend to color the Parakeet Party ornament darker. I adhered the ornaments to the embossed panel with dots of liquid glue. After they dried, I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on strips of Basic Black and sprinkled them with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated them with my heat tool until they were bright and shiny. I trimmed the ends and adhered the sentiments to the card front with glue dots. I adhered some rhinestones around the card for a little more bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the present in Real Red next to the sentiments and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle is pretty versatile and great for clean and simple Christmas cards. The outline dies for the trees and ornaments is really unique – it’s a fun set to play with!

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is a rustic Christmas card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle along with the pretty Painted Christmas designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I stamped the sentiment from the Mistletoe Magic cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Boughs of Holly designer series paper. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny. I adhered the panel to the bottom of a Painted Christmas designer series paper and then adhered the layered panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the layered DSP to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped two of the small detailed holly leaves and one of the large detailed holly leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly photopolymer stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow card stock and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I cut two each of the pine sprigs from the Holly Berry dies from Garden Green. I cut the detailed berries from Real Red and the background berries from Poppy Parade and adhered them together with dots of liquid glue.

I arranged my die cuts on the card front to determine where to place them and started by adhering the pine sprigs with dots of liquid glue. I adhered the small holly leaves with liquid glue and the large leaf and berries with dimensionals. I made a bow with gold twine and adhered it under the berries with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel. I inked up the small holly leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves Of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow and stamped it off twice before stamping it on the 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 with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle is so versatile that it can create very elegant Christmas cards with foil and rustic ones against Crumb Cake. So many ways to express Holiday creativity.

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Embossed Tree Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up is a fun Christmas bundle with bold modern graphic Christmas Trees, ornaments and presents. I used one of the Christmas trees with the pretty Painted Christmas designer series paper for today’s 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 Painted Christmas DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base with dimensionals. I embossed a panel of vellum with the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D embossing folders and adhered it to the front with Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the large tree from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on Garden Green card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny, then I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I adhered the embossed tree to the card front with dimensionals, covering the Stampin’ Seal adhesive under the vellum. I cut a little star with the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up dies from white glimmer paper and adhered it to the tree top with a bit of dimensional. I finished the card by decorating the tree with pretty white Seasonal Adhesive Sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up stamp set on a Basic White panel in Garden Green ink. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Painted Christmas DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The bold designs in the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle make beautiful simple Christmas cards without fuss. And the dies are wonderfully designed to cut an outline design at the same time as you cut the stamped image. I saved the outline tree from this card for an upcoming card.

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

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle to make another poinsettia Christmas card. For today’s poinsettias, I used the Snowy White Velvet paper to make a poinsettia with a velvety texture – the dies cut the velvet paper beautifully! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week and here’s the pretty sketch we are using:

I cut a panel of Painted Christmas designer series paper with the Scalloped Contours die and adhered it to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I cut the three largest poinsettia clusters from the Snowy White Velvet paper using the embossing insets. I gently curled the petals backwards and adhered the centers with liquid glue.

I adhered the poinsettia to the card front with glue dots. I cut the berry sprig using from the dark side of the Poppy Parade Ombre specialty paper and adhered it to the card front with glue dots, tucking it under the flower. I cut two of the leaves from the Poinsettia dies with the embossing insets from Evening Evergreen and gently curved them before adhering them with glue dots under the flower.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Soft Sea Foam. I cut out the sentiment with the smallest Scalloped Contour die using the two step method and adhered it on the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the card front with three Garden Gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I stamped the little holly flourish from the Whimsical Trees stamp set next to the sentiment in Soft Sea Foam and trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Painted Christmas DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The die cut poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia dies are my all time favorite die cut poinsettia for Christmas cards. A single die cut poinsettia that is so dramatic – especially when cut from a specialty paper like the velvet!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Cards

Good Friday Morning! One of the fin things I did last weekend was travel to my team lead’s house for our Quarterly In Person Inkin’ Krew Team meeting. We made three beautiful Christmas cards designed by three of our team members with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

This first card was designed by Amy Koenders, our team lead. The greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle really pops against the clean white background and the Cherry Cobbler sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set fits perfectly in the corner. She finishes it with some nice touches of shimmer with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Gold Holly Leaves. You Can find more of Amy’s designs on her blog Stamp with Amy K.

This pretty card was designed by our teammate Karen Ksenzakovic. The Painted Christmas designer series paper is a gorgeous backdrop to the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamped pine cones and I love how she designed the pine branches in a spray around the label. The sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set is a sweet touch on the Cherry Cobbler die cut label. You can find more of Karen’s work on her blog Creative Stamping Designs.

Our last card was made by our teammate Donna Leonard at Stamp Dabbles. I love rustic Christmas cards made with kraft paper and Donna’s design brings this together perfectly! The pine branches from the Wintry 3D embossing folder go beautifully with the Painted Christmas DSP and I love how the stamped greenery looks on Crumb Cake card stock! Donna also incorporated the sentiments from the Christmas To Remember stamp set.

I love how each card is so different and beautiful, it really shows the versatility of the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle. And I love how each arrangement of greenery uses the same colors, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Early Espresso, and yet each arrangement is different! It shows that you can easily arrange the die cut pieces any way you want and still come out with a beautiful card.

It was fun to get together to make cards with a few of the other ladies on our team and see these beautiful designs. I feel fortunate that I live close enough to some of my teammates to meet in person, because we are all over the country! Now is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! because of the Sale A Bration extra free bundle that you can add to your Starter Kit.

Good Morning! Yesterday afternoon during my weekly Facebook Live, I used the the pretty Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle to make Christmas card. The Painted Christmas designer series paper has a pretty print that matches the stamps and die cuts in this pretty bundle perfectly, so I used it for the background of my card. You can find the supplies I used 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.

I adhered a panel the colorful Painted Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base. I cut an Evening Evergreen panel with the large label die from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season bundle and embossed it with the pine needles embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing folders. I adhered it to the center of the card front.

I stamped the long leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green, the berry Cluster in Garden Green and Real Red, the small leaf cluster in Soft Sea Foam and the small pinecone in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I cut these out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Sea Foam on a small basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember cling stamp set in Real Red ink on top of the leaf and cut it out with the label die. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and finished the card front with a Cherry Cobbler and Gold ribbon bow and three gilded gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Sea Foam on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to remember stamp set over the leaves in Real Red and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Painted Christmas DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Christmas Season bundle has so many pretty holiday greenery images that all have coordinating dies, making it real easy to make decorative greenery arrangements for cards, tags and gift packages. And the label dies are very versatile and can be used with many other stamp sets that have sentiments.
