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!

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. For today’s card, I used felt for the snow! I have wanted to play with felt for a long time and I finally made it happen with this card! You can find the supplies 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find it here.

I started by cutting a 1-3/4″ x 5″ panel of while felt from the Festive Felt sheet combo pack with the rolling hillside die from the Home Together Dies. I was really pleased at how easy it was to cut!! I also cut a panel of Whisper White to match and adhered the felt to the front. This gives me a bright white snow bank as my sample card was adhered to the DSP directly and looks a little dingy.

I stamped all my die cuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped 4 houses, three large pine trees, two small pine trees and a wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home photopolymer stamp set. I colored them all with Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I stamped the bare tree and adhered the snowbank to the Trimming the Town DSP and then the DSP to a Whisper White mat. I tucked the small pine tree under the snow bank, stamped the smoke and adhered the large house with dimensionals and liquid glue.

I adhered the two smaller houses together with liquid glue and popped them on the larger house with dimensionals. I added the wreath with dimensionals and the two large pine trees with dimensionals and liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black in on a strip of Whisper White. I trimmed the end with the new Banners Pick a Punch and adhered it to the front with liquid glue. I finished the label with a red rhinestone. I popped the little scene onto the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in real red ink and adhered the last two trees to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
