Stampin’ Up! Gift Wrapped Little Treats for the Happy Inkin’ 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 Gift Wrapped Bundle, the Little Treats Bundle, and the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here are my projects:

The theme this week is Wrap It Up/Gifts/Gift Packaging:

The Specialty Designer Series Paper in the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley with the packages pattern seemed perfect for our theme this week, so I decided to go with it.  The gold foil accents work perfectly with the shiny Gold Mini Pizza Box.

Adhere a panel of the Most Wonderful Time Specialty Designer Series Paper to a panel of Basic Black card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the top of the box.  The bow image from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set is stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink on a Gold Foil Sheet and cropped with the coordinating Gift Bow Builder Punch.  The sentiment from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set is stamped with StazOn Black Ink on a banner sticker from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  After determining placement, adhere the sentiment banner sticker to the top of the box.  Then adhere the foil bow to the top of the box with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a gold star from the Product Medley to the sentiment banner.

The treat box is cut from a 6″ x 6″ panel of Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley using the Little Treat Box Die.  Fold along all the score lines and then assemble the box.  Use some Liquid Glue to secure it.  Embellish with a couple candy cane stickers from the Product Medley.  The sentiment from the Little Treats Stamp Set is stamped with Old Olive ink on a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock and trimmed by hand with Paper Snips, then adhered to the front on the box with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Thread a length of Old Olive Ribbon from the All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack through the slots at the top of the box and tie a bow.

This picture is to show the placement of the Little Treat Box Die on a 6″ x 6″ panel of DSP.  It’s a perfect fit if you place the die to cut on the diagonal.

Try these two quick and easy options for packaging little treats.  The Mini Pizza box also works for a gift card.  Who wouldn’t love to receive one of these?

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

Happy Thanksgiving and 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 Christmas Means More Stamp Set, the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, the Sounds of the Season Dies and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies .  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using this week:When I saw this sentiment from the Christmas Means More Stamp Set, I felt like it was meant to be used with the bell patterned paper from the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper collection.

Adhere a panel of the DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then cut a strip of the Cherry Cobbler patterned paper and crop one end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the banner along the right side of the front panel, 1/2″ down from the top and 1/2″ in from the side.  Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas Means More Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the second to largest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to crop the panel.  Then line the panel back up in the die, this time trimming it a bit shorter, by two scallops.  Only run it through the machine as far as you need to for the second cut, then back it out.

Color the bells with Smoky Slate Light and Dark Blends Markers, then add some sparkle to them with a Clear Wink of Stella brush.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment piece to a panel of Smoky Slate card stock.  Color two lengths of Real Red Braided Linen Trim with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends marker on both sides and allow to dry.  Wrap one length of trim around the sentiment panel near the top edge and secure the ends on the back with tape.

Tie a small bow with the second length of trim and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.  Use the largest bell from the Sounds of the Season Dies to cut a few holly leaves from a scrap of Garden Green card stock and some berries from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Use Glue to adhere them to the single bell.  Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Paper Snips to fussy cut some images of bells from the DSP.  Adhere them to a panel of Whisper White card stock as shown.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the inside panel to the Cherry Cobbler mat before adhering the layer to the inside of the card base.  So sweet, with plenty of space for your handwritten message.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Pine Trees 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 the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch, the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP .  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors for the challenge we are using this week (pick at least 3):

I’m also joining the Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge: PP517

Hooray for Holidays, indeed!  I’m so ready to celebrate – how about you?  The colors I used for the challenge are Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White and a touch of Garden Green.

Stamp the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Use a border die from the Peony Dies to cut a strip from a Gold Foil Sheet.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add the scalloped strip under the bottom edge of the panel.  Adhere the remaining piece under the top edge of the panel revealing about 1/16″.

Use the Pine Tree Punch to crop some trees from ‘Tis the Season and Classic Christmas 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper.  The plaid tree and Cherry Cobbler tree are adhered to the panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The tree punched from the Classic Christmas DSP is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  (Color the berries with a Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin’ Blends marker first.)

Add gold star embellishments from the Most Wonderful Time Medley to the top of each tree.  Add three small Gilded Gems to the accent tree and one medium Gilded Gem above the sentiment.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Classic Christmas DSP to the front of a Basic Black card base, about 1/4″ up from the bottom edge.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Glue.

Use Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set to the Whisper White inside panel.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a tree punched from Classic Christmas DSP to the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Another card ready to send out to spread some cheer.  We need that!  Are you making more cards this year?  I know I am.

Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Town 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 the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and coordinating Home Togther Dies, plus a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set .  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch challenge we are all using this week:

The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper has images that coordinate with the Home Together Dies making it so easy to create scenes!  There is no stamping on the front of this card.  All the images and the sentiment are from the patterned paper.

Adhere a panel (snow scene) of the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Poppy Parade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use the Home Together Dies to cut out a house and some small trees from the DSP.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.

Add some sparkle to the snow drifts with a Clear Wink of Stella brush.  Use Paper Snips to hand cut the sentiment from the DSP and glue it to a Poppy Parade card stock strip before adhering it with Dimensionals.  Glue the front panel to a Misty Moonlight card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Misty Moonlight ink.  Adhere a house cut from the Designer Series Paper and then adhere to a mat of Poppy Parade card stock.  Use Glue to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card.  See how easy that was?  Your turn to try it – have fun!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Happy Holidays for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme is “Christmas or Happy Holidays”.  My project today features the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and the coordinating Poinsettia Dies.  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.

Using the Poinsettia Dies with the Red Velvet Paper makes for some beautiful flowers.  The veining details are embossed into the velvet, adding texture and interest.

To build the card front, start by embossing a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere the panel to the front of a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to a Garden Green card stock mat before adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the smallest size two-piece flower set from the Poinsettia Dies, cut two blooms from Red Velvet Paper.  Adhere them together with the petals offset using Liquid Glue.  Adhere a Beaded Pearl embellishment to the center of the flower with some Mini Glue Dots.  Cut three of the berry branches from a Silver Foil Sheet using a die from the Poinsettia Dies set.  Determine the placement of the berry branches and adhere them to the card base using Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the completed flower to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set on a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Perfect Parcels Dies.  Trace the outline of the die on a panel of Garden Green card stock and cut out by hand with Paper Snips.  Use Glue to adhere the sentiment to the hand-cut mat, then adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish the sentiment piece with a medium size Pearl Basic Jewel.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in the center of a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock.  Cut two of the smallest flowers from Real Red card stock and adhere them together with Glue.  Cut a branch of berries from a Silver Foil Sheet and snip into smaller pieces.  Adhere the flower to the upper left corner of the stamped panel with Glue, slipping the branches under it.  The flower center is a berry trimmed from a branch with Paper Snips.  The inside panel is adhered to the card base with Glue.  I had fun making this card and I hope you will, too!

Stampin’ Up! Gnome in the Snow 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 Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set and the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with the Snowman Season Stamp Set.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

The theme this week is Snow/Snow Scene/Snowflakes:

I decided the gnome with snowflakes on his cap would be the perfect addition to the snowy scene in the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP. To begin, adhere a panel of the DSP to a Whisper White Thick panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Gray Granite ink to stamp the gnome from the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Let it dry thoroughly then color the image with Stampin’ Blends markers: Light Petal Pink for his nose and hands, Light Seaside Spray for his hat, Light Night of Navy for his outfit and hat details, Light & Dark Smoky Slate for his beard, mustache and the bell on his hat and Light & Dark Crumb Cake for his boots.  I also added a few stokes of the Color Lifter as highlights in his beard.  Add Wink of Stella to the bell, his beard and the snowflakes on his hat.

The gnome is cropped with a Layering Ovals die and the Misty Moonlight mat is cut with a Stitched Shapes die.  Adhere the art piece to the mat with Liquid Glue, then adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Emboss the sentiment from the Snowman Season Stamp Set on a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock using White Stampin’ Emboss powder.  Then crop it with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set.

Wrap a length of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the background layer three times, securing the ends on the back with tape.  Use Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over the twine.  Then adhere the front panel to the Misty Moonlight card base with Dimensionals.  Complete by adding a triple loop bow adhered with a Mini Glue Dot and a few sequins from the Snowflake Sequins pack adhered with small dabs of Liquid Glue.

Adhere a strip of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the Whisper White inside panel using Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Snowman Season Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight ink.  Then adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base with Glue.  One more Christmas card ready to send, yay!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Plaid 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 Gather Together Bundle, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I would not have thought about combining the rich color of Pretty Peacock with the colors Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie, but was inspired to give it a try when I saw a card made by a team mate, Karen Ilsley.  What do you think?  The DSP is from the Plaid Tidings collection and has the same three colors in it, as well.  Perfect!

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base.  Cut a panel of Cajun Craze card stock and use the Banner Triple Punch to crop one end.  Adhere the banner to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Use a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock – final dimensions are listed at the end of this post.  Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together Stamp Set at the bottom of the panel.  The wheat image is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink multiple times before re-inking in the upper section of the panel.

Stamp the pumpkins from the Gather Together Stamp Set with Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White Thick card stock.  Color them with Pumpkin Pie Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use Old Olive Light and Dark Blends to color the stems.  The large pumpkin is adhered to the panel with Glue.  The smaller two pumpkins are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few colored rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection .

The leaf is inked with Pretty Peacock ink and stamped off three times before stamping on the inside panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP along the bottom edge with Liquid Glue and stamp the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Glue.  All done!
