Stampin’ Up! Lights Aglow Double Twisted Ribbon Technique Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Leaves of Holly Stamp Setthe Holly Berry Dies and the Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the Sketch we are using:I found the Double Twisted Ribbon Technique on Pinterest and had lots of fun creating my panel for the card front.  There are multiple approaches and multiple videos to watch for this technique, so search them out and pick the one you prefer.  All the measurements used on this card can be found at the end of this post.

Use a panel of Basic White card stock for the base, scored from top to bottom at 1″ intervals.  Using two different colors of DSP makes this a Double Twisted Ribbon. The darker strips of DSP are adhered first, since they are in the background and also the “reverse side” of the ribbon.  The lighter more decorative strips are on top.  You can adhere the strips with Stampin’ Seal Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use paper snips to trim the ends of the strips that extend beyond the base layer along the left side and right side.  Then adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is heat embossed with Gold embossing powder on Basic White card stock.  Cut it out with the label die from the Holly Berry Dies.  Place the label die upside down on a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock and trace around it with a pencil.  Cut along the line with Paper Snips and you have created a mat for the sentiment label.  Adhere the label to the mat with Glue and then adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, adhere strips of DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering to a Cherry Cobbler mat.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Here’s another version of the same card – the difference is the sentiment is embossed in Gold on Cherry Cobbler card stock and the hand cut mat is Gold Foil.

Give this technique a try, and have some fun with it!

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

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Handmade Wishes Stamp Setthe Handmade Tag Punch and the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And these are the Colors we are using (pick at least 3):

Thanks to the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper, I used all five colors and was able to showcase the Designer Series Paper, the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set and Handmade Tag Punch.

This card is one of my go-to Fun Folds – the Joy Fold.  It’s an easy one.  Cut the panels of card stock and DSP as listed below and you should be able to put this together quickly.  Using different patterns from the same pack of Designer Series Paper makes coordination even easier.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere all the panels of DSP and card stock.  The largest panel (multicolor diagonal stripes) of the Sweetest Christmas DSP is adhered to the inside/front of the Real Red card base.  The medium sized piece (dots) is adhered to the front of the smaller card.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the scalloped frame from the Handmade Wishes stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  The sentiment and holly leaves are stamped with Garden Green ink.  The berries are stamped in Real Red ink.  Use the Handmade Tag Punch to cut it out.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And add some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels over the top of the stamped berries for a little sparkle.

The small candy cane strips are adhered to the lower front flap – one is inside and one is on the front.  Stamp the holly leaves and berries in the corners of the Basic White inside panel before adhering to the inside of the card with Glue.  Have fun mixing and matching and trying different papers!

Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive Santa Express for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Christmas or Happy Holidays”.  My card today features the Framed & Festive Stamp Set, the Framed Florets Dies plus the Santa Express Designer Series Paper and the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set.  We have a great group of participants in our hop this month.  Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the Inkin’ Krew Team members are sharing with you today.

This fun fold Christmas card features the new Framed & Festive Stamp Set with the Santa Express Designer Series Paper.

Begin by adhering the 3/4″ x 4-1/4″ strip of Santa Express DSP to the 1″ wide section of the front of a Shaded Spruce card stock base.  Wrap a length of Real Red ribbon across this section and adhere the ends on the inside of the card with tape.  Then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere this section of the card front to the card back.  Wrap a shorter length of ribbon around the wrapped piece and tie in a knot to add some detail.  Next, adhere the 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ panel of DSP to the other side of the card front with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set with Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with the small oval die from the Framed Florets Dies. Use Shaded Spruce ink to add a few sets of small holly leaves around the sentiment using a stamp from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp set.

Use the same oval die to cut a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock for the sentiment frame.  Adhere the sentiment and the frame centered on the 4-1/4″ square of DSP using Liquid Glue.  Add some Red Rhinestones as berries on the holly leaves to complete.

Use Glue to adhere a narrow strip of DSP across the top and bottom of the 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ panel of Basic White DSP.  Stamp the sentiment from the Festive Frames stamp set on the inside panel with Shaded Spruce ink.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

The Theme this week is Christmas:

The Christmas Scottie Bundle is perfect for making multiple cards quickly and the Gingham Cottage DSP is the perfect background to use with it.  The layout can be portrait or landscape.

The standard size Real Red card has a 3-1/2″ x 5″ panel of Basic White card stock on the front and the layout is the same as the notecards.  The white cards are made with the 3-1/2″ x 5″ Basic White Notecards.

Stamp the bow and the sentiment with Real Red ink.  The bow is cut with the Scottie Dog punch and the sentiment is cut with the Double Oval Punch.  Use the same two punches to cut the Scottie dog and the scalloped oval mat from Basic Black card stock.

Adhere a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the front of the notecard with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Scottie dog and bow are also adhered to the card front with Glue.

This card features the Cottage Wreaths stamp set as the art piece, the Very Best Occasions stamp set for the sentiments and a hand colored panel of Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper for the background.

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

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set, the Holly Berry Dies, the Best Label Punch and the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And these are the colors we are using (pick at least 3):

I believe all five colors are in the DSP image, plus I added Mossy Meadow and Gold!  It’s wonderful to have such pretty Designer Series Paper to play with.  The Boughs of Holly DSP definitely does not disappoint.

Start by adhering the three strips of Boughs of Holly DSP to the panel of Evening Evergreen card stock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Glue to adhere the layer to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Wrap a length of Linen Thread around the layered panel three times and adhere the ends on the back with tape.

Choose one of the Poinsettia floral sprays from the DSP pattern with the white background and use Paper Snips to fussy-cut.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the floral accent over the Linen Thread.  Die cut a few branches from a Gold Foil sheet using dies from the Holly Berry Dies set.  Tuck the branches under the floral, adhering with Mini Glue Dots.

Use Evening Evergreen ink to stamp the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set on a scrap of Basic White card stock.  Crop it with the cute Best Label punch – it’s great for small sentiments and greetings!  Adhere to the front panel with a bit of Liquid Glue.  Add a Linen Thread triple loop bow and a few shiny gold pearls from the Festive Pearls collection.  Then adhere the panel to the front of a Real Red card base with Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, fussy-cut a couple floral accents from the same pattern of Boughs of Holly DSP and adhere to the corners of a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Another pretty card ready to go!

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Thankful for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Hello Harvest Stamp Set, the Rustic Pumpkins Die Set, the Label Me Fancy Punch and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

The Theme we are working with this week is Thankful:

In the Fall, as Thanksgiving approaches, many of us think about what we are thankful for.  I am most thankful for the people in my life – family and friends.  This card is for my people.  What are you thankful for?


Use the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock. Trim the panel to size and adhere to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Glue a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP to a panel of Kraft card stock.  Add a panel of the pumpkin pattern from the Rustic Harvest collection overlapping the strip.  Adhere the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set with Cajun Craze ink on a panel of Basic White card stock. Crop it with the Label Me Fancy Punch.

Cut a tendril from Mossy Meadow card stock with a die from the Rustic Pumpkin Die Set.  Use small dabs of Glue to adhere the tendril to the label.  Then adhere the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish the card front with a few gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Use Cajun Craze ink to stamp the flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in the lower left corner of a panel of Kraft card stock.  Glue a die cut tendril to the upper right corner, then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.
