Stampin’ Up! Christmas Wishes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  We have a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card.

Here is the sketch challenge we are using:

And here are pictures and instructions so you can make this card, too!

Begin by adhering a panel of Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper to a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a strip of DSP from the same collection centered left to right and top to bottom.  Cut a wider strip from another pattern of Under the Mistletoe DSP and use the Banner Triple Punch to flag each end.  Adhere to the front layer centered over the first strip with Liquid Glue.  The front layer can now be adhered to the front of the Soft Sea Foam card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set on a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with Shaded Spruce ink.  Use an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies to cut out.  Cut a scalloped oval mat from Shaded Spruce card stock with a die from the Layering Oval Framelits dies.  Adhere the ovals with Glue.  Die cut a couple branches with a die from the Detailed Poinsettia Thinits Dies – one from Shaded Spruce and one from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Use Paper Snips to cut out a couple images from the DSP.  Adhere the branches and fussy-cut images to the top edge of the oval layer.  Then adhere the oval layer to the card front with Dimensionals.  Tie a triple bow with Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon and adhere to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Stamp a sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Shaded Spruce ink.  Adhere a strip of DSP along the bottom edge.  Then adhere it to a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock and the inside of the card using Liquid Glue.  Add to your stash of cards ready to mail in December!

Stampin’ Up! Many Blessings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  Our theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  My card features the Country Lane Designer Series Paper and the Many Blessings stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  Here is what I created:

I am also participating in the As You See It Challenge #186 – Flag Me Down:

The coordinating patterns in the Country Lane DSP are so much fun to create with, loved playing with them for this sketch.   Begin by cutting the strips in graduating widths and lengths, following the paper cut dimensions listed at the bottom of this post.  The woodgrain print DSP is 3/4″ wide, Cajun Craze card stock is 1″ wide, cotton boll print DSP is 1-1/2″ wide and the pumpkin trellis print DSP is 2″ wide.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to flag the ends of each strip.

Use the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the banners even with the top edge of the embossed panel, layering as you work, applying Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the top 1/2″ only, so the banner ends are free.  Then adhere the completed piece to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock.  Wrap a length of Braided Linen Trim around the top edge, tie a double knot, trim the ends and fray them a bit.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed layer to the front of an Early Espresso card base.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Many Blessings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the punch from the Darling Label Punch Box set to cut out it out.  Cut a square from Cajun Craze card stock with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to mat the sentiment. After adhering with Glue, add four Mint Macaron colored Faceted Dots to the corners.  Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front with Dimensionals.

Adhere a 1/2″ wide strip of DSP along the edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock which is then adhered to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock.  Then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card with Glue.  Ready to go!

Stampin’ Up Rooted in Nature Fall Colors for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and Nature’s Roots Framelits dies (also available as a Bundle at 10% off) to create my card for today.  I also used the coordinating Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  We have a color challenge this week – this is what I made:

And here is the color challenge we are using:

I’m also participating in the Sunday Stamps SSC188 Sketch Challenge this week:

To begin, use Old Olive ink with the small single leaf stamp from the Rooted in Nature stamp set to add some green leaves to the Nature’s Poem DSP panel.  Then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to an Old Olive card stock mat.

Use the Subtles embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the Envelope Punch Board to round two corners on this panel and also on the Old Olive card stock mat.  Adhere the white panel to the Old Olive mat and then adhere the completed layer to the DSP layer with Liquid Glue.  Apply a strip of Tear and Tape across the panel and adhere a length of 1/4″ Copper Trim over the tape.  It’s fun to shape this mesh ribbon first.  The tape will keep it the shape you want.  Wrap the ends around to the back side and secure.  Adhere this layer to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use sponge daubers with the following colors to ink the tree stamp from the Rooted in Nature set: Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss.  Use your breath to re-moisten the ink and stamp on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Add some additional color with the daubers, if desired.  Cut the tree image out with the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies.  Adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the 1/4″ Copper Trim.  Shape and adhere to the card front.

Adhere a strip of the stamped DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Round the corners with the Envelope Punch Board.  Adhere to a panel of Old Olive card stock after rounding the corners of it, as well.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card – using Liquid Glue for all.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poinsettia Christmas for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

I am playing along with the Fab Friday 147 sketch challenge this week:

I love the festive photographic images and designs in the All is Bright Designers Series Paper. The Gold Foil paper brings out the gold accents in the DSP.

The evergreen branch from the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits dies coordinates perfectly with the branch images in the All is Bright DSP.  Love the bold script style font of the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettias stamp set.

The die cut branches are slipped in between the sentiment panel and the Gold Foil mat to add a bit more interest and dimension.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Real Red card stock, score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half for card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of All is Bright Designer Series Paper and adhere to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Gold Foil with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Cut a 2″ x 4″ panel of All is Bright DSP and use the Banner Triple Punch to trim one end.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the banner to the DSP layer.
  5. Adhere the completed DSP layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettieas stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Real Red ink.
  7. Die cut the sentiment panel with an oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
  8. Die cut a Gold Foil mat using the next size up Layering Ovals die.
  9. Die cut 2 sets of branches from both Mossy Meadow and Soft Seafoam card stock with the die from the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits Dies. (4 branches total)
  10. Use Liquid Glue to adhere a set of branches (one of each color) on the upper right and lower left sides of the Gold Foil oval mat.
  11. Adhere the stamped sentiment to the Gold Foil mat and use Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment layer to  the DSP layer.

* Not shown: Adhere a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Whisper White card stock to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Mossy Meadow card stock and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

*** A complete list of products used to complete this project are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Winter Woods stamp set and In The Woods Framelits dies (also available as a Bundle at 10% off) to create my card for today.  We have a sketch challenge this week – this is what I made:

And here is the sketch we are using this week:

The evergreen tree image in the Winter Woods stamp set has such awesome detail, I chose to feature it on the front of this card.  The coordinating die from In the Woods Framelits dies make cutting it out nearly effortless.  If you make multiples of a design to mail out at Christmas, this card would work well.

To begin, cut a panel of Whisper White card stock and emboss with the Softly Falling textured impressions embossing folder.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the front of a Shaded Spruce card base.

Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the evergreen tree on a panel of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die.  Cut a 4 inch length of Striped Burlap Trim and cut a notch in the both ends.  Adhere the trim a bit above the bottom edge of the embossed panel with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the tree to the embossed panel just above the trim.

Stamp two small branches with Shaded Spruce ink and one pine cone with Soft Suede ink on scraps of Whisper White card stock and cut with the coordinating dies.  Adhere to the top right corner of the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and cut out with the Pretty Label punch.  Punch a second label from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Cut it in half lengthwise and use Glue to adhere the halves to the back of the sentiment as a mat with a small reveal showing along the top and bottom edges.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed sentiment label to the card base.

Ink the tree image with Shaded Spruce ink, stamp off once and stamp a bit off the right edge on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere to the interior of the card with Glue

*** You can find a complete list of supplies for this project, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.
