Stampin’ Up! Santa Express Mem’ries & More

Happy THANKSGIVING! WOOHOO! HELLO TURKEY 😀 Yum… We will be celebrating with family on Saturday, not today. Our kids are with their spouses families today, then come here to celebrate with us. I’m thankful they want to come and it will be so good to have us all together. So MUCH for which to be thankful. Amen & amen.

What I’m sharing with you today is cards I have made with the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack and Cards & Envelopes. I haven’t quite finished the pack yet, but here are twelve of them ready to go :O)

I’ve used elements from the Santa Express Mem’ries & More Card Pack and a few other items from my stash. The coordinating colors are Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, Basic White, Mint Macaron &Pool Party ~ so you’ll see card stocks cut to fit that utilize those colors of card stock. I’ve also used VersaMark ink & White Embossing Powder, Pearlized Enamel Effects (in red), 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine (Sweet Sorbet & White), Deckled Rectangle Dies, Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in Red, Green & White, Snowfall Accents Puff Paint, Wintry 3D Embossing Folder (pine fronds), Real Red 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack, Hope & Peace Stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink, and a sentiment from the October ’22 Paper Pumpkin kit. This is such a great card pack, with matching cards & envelopes. Thank you Amy Koenders for the gift of these for attending On Stage! As I said, I have a few more to make.

Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness Bundle

It’s mid-week… how’s it going? Our week is going well at this end… getting cooler for sure. I need to bring in a couple of plants!!! My card for today uses the Decorated w/ Happiness bundle which I have not used much. I love this bundle – the pine fronds both stamped & die cut; the ornaments; the stars; the sentiments. It fits as lot of my needs :O)

Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness Bundle

I started by stamping the pine branch in Evening Evergreen ink – and yes, from Decorated with Happiness stamp set and on a Basic White panel. The filler stamp from this set is done in Soft Succulent ink. Next I die cut some of the ornaments using the Decorated Pine Dies from Gold Foil Sheets and chose this ball ornament – also die cut the ‘string’ with the bow from the same Gold Foil Sheets. I adhered the ‘string’ with dots of liquid glue, then stamped the filler image for the ornament in Cherry Cobbler second generation. I needed to ink & stamp twice cuz it wasn’t quite in the right spot 😳 Next I adhered the Gold Foil ornament over the inking. I stamped the greeting using the same Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. I added the die cut stars as an afterthought and really liked them. They also come from the Decorated Pine Dies & Gold Foil Sheets. I also stamped the the dots/ asterisk stamp in Soft Succulent ink – just cuz. This Basic White panel was adhered to Cherry Cobbler card stock just a bit larger; dimensionals went on the back and this was adhered to the A2 Soft Succulent card base.

Hint… about die cutting with foil: I designate a separate plate for die-cutting foil papers. They are used less and fewer marks on them. I also choose to use foil that is very close to size to the die. This way, marks are not transferred to the die. I mark my cutting plate so it reminds me! See photo.

Stampin' Up! Foil cutting plate.2

For the inside of my card… Basic White card stock and this fun ornament stamped in Evening Evergreen ink at various levels, then the ‘filler’ stamp in Soft Succulent ink, stamped-off first. This was added with liquid glue to the inside of the card base – and done!

Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness.3

For the envelope… I used the same pine fronds stamp from Decorated With Happiness stamp set and stamped in Evening Evergreen ink – both on the envelope front and the flap. The filler stamp from the same Decorated With Happiness stamp set was inked with Soft Succulent ink and stamped on the pine fronds. I used the dot/ asterisk stamp from the same stamp set and Soft Succulent ink to add more to the envelope front & flap.

Stampin’ Up! Fitting Florets Suite for Christmas +

In yesterday’s post I mentioned a SU! box was arriving with some new products – and I’m here to share that with you and a card I made using the products and one or two others. Here’s the card…

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Suite.Christmas.1

Just look at that gorgeous framed oval – love! And the gold foil spray & die cut Evening Evergreen leaves – and don’t forget the Fitting Florets DSP! Oh goodness… I began by coloring the berries of the Fitting Florets DSP with my Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends. They were white and I wanted this to be full of color and – well, that’s what I did. This was mounted on a panel of Soft Succulent card stock and added to the same color card base with dimensionals. I added a strip of Real Red card stock for more color, right across the middle. I then did all these die cuts using the Framed Florets Dies: from Gold Foil Sheets, the spray and a couple of leaves; from Evening Evergreen card stock, more small leaves and this stunning oval frame. Before die cutting the Evening Evergreen frame I added Foam Adhesive Sheets to the back so it would be evenly raised. See photos

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Dies.1
Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Dies.2

I stamped the sentiment from Framed & Festive stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White piece and die cut this with the same oval to create the center portion for the sentiment. Once stamped I adhered this with liquid glue to the center of the frame, then the Evening Evergreen frame to the center of the card. I added most of the die cut pieces with liquid glue to further enhance the frame. Then I tied a bow using the Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent. I then clipped down the middle of each bow & strands to make this fluffy gorgeous bow. This was adhered with glue dots. The final touch was the stunning Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls that are part of the Fitting Florets Suite of products.

Stampin' Up! Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls

For the inside I used one of the dies from the Framed Florets Dies that coordinates with one of the flowers in the Fitting Florets DSP to die cut a flower and added it to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from Framed & Festive stamp set (part of the suite!) in Evening Evergreen ink, adhered the panel to the inside of the card base & done!

For the envelope, I colored another piece of the same Fitting Florets DSP with Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends and added it to the flap, and trimmed to fit. For the front of the envelope I stamped the sentiment from Framed & Festive stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry in Gold & White

Hello again… I couldn’t help it – I played with the Joyful Flurry bundle again. I had an idea about making the Wonderful Snowflakes gold and simply HAD to give it a try. And guess what… it worked. First use the embossing buddy to remove any static. Use the VersaMark ink pad to tap onto the snowflake, sprinkle on gold embossing powder and heat set. I heated from the under side of the snowflake. I did have to do this a couple of times for good coverage.

Stampin' Up! joyful Flurry in Gold & White.1

Next I took a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White and the Frosted Flurry Dies to make a card front. Some of the snowflakes in this die set cut all the way through, some do not, but create wonderful designs with some cut-outs. I chose one of those, well two of those :O) I figured out the placement of the now gold Wonderful Snowflake, removed it and ran the Basic White panel through the cut & emboss machine. I punched up from the back all the little designs, then cut a piece of Brushed Metallic Gold to put behind the cut-out snowflake, adhering it to the back of the Basic White with Tear n Tape. I adhered the gold Wonderful Snowflake with a dimensional in the center. To create the banner from the Joyful Flurry stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set – again from behind. It seems to create a nicer finish when heating the gold from the back side. I then used a banner die from the Frosted Flurry Dies to make the banner. I had die cut the remaining snowflake but it needed to be trimmed around the middle to be free to add. At this point I sprayed the card front with a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint & rubbing alcohol. I added three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. All this was attached to a Thick Basic White A2 card.

Joyful Flurry in Gold & White.2
Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry in Gold & White.3

For the inside I again used a sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set with VersaMark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder, heat set from the back. I spritzed the panel with the same Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol in the Stampin’ Spritzer. It barely shows in the photo but in person, it does!

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry in Gold & white.4

On the envelope, I used the Splatters embossing folder (from Stripes & Splatters) to emboss the flap. For the envelope front, I stamped a snowflake from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Memento ink, then filled in all the openings with Wink of Stella. The camera does not capture this well :O( And the card was done. Elegant.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry in Gold & White.5

What do you think? do you like the Wonderful Snowflake in Gold embossing powder? I definitely do and may try it in silver embossing powder as well :O).

This stamp bundle – Joyful Flurry and the coordinating Frosted Flurry Dies are in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – as are the Wonderful Snowflakes. The embossing powder, embellishments and embossing folder all all found in the Annual 2022-2023 Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Textured Chic Specialty Paper for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! I’ve had such fun this week creating with the Seasons of Chic Bundle and the Textured Chic Specialty Paper. One of the best parts is the set is so versatile: summer with shells, fall with leaves, winter with snowflakes and MORE. It’s a timeless set! So here we are for the Blog Hop…

The them challenge is Designer Series Paper…and I’ve chose the Textured Chic Specialty Paper

And here’s my card for today…

Seasons of Chic. Winter.1

Isn’t it amazing there is so much variety in this DSP (Textured Chic Specialty Paper) and stamp bundle: Seasons of Chic? And what I’ve done here is add snowflakes from two sources: the large one is Wonderful Snowflakes; the other two are dies in the Chic Dies. I’ve die cut them from the paper of the Wonderful Snowflakes because I liked the shine of the paper :O) Pretty cool, right?! In the center of each of the snowflakes is a Pastel Pearl.

Textured Chic Specialty Paper is layered on Basic White card stock, adhered with liquid glue. That has dimensionals and is adhered to the Basic Gray card base. Pretty simple card front. Just the same – beautiful.

Season of Chic. Winter, inside

For the inside, I had a piece of trimmed Textured Chic Specialty Paper on the table and adhered it to the Basic White panel. I simply added this to the inside of the card and loved the simplicity.

For the envelope… more of the same Textured Chic Specialty Paper for the flap, then the front was stamped with snowflakes from the Seasons of Chic stamp set in Basic Gray – two of which were stamped off once.

Seasons of Chic. Winter.3

Stampin’ Up! C’mas Banners Bundle for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy, happy Thursday! We have a fun creative challenge today for the hop and you may have come from Tara or just hopping in here. Either way this is what I’ve created for the hop.

C’mas Banners Bundle. 1

I chose to really ‘stick with’ the sketch challenge today 😏 and had lots of fun doing it. The DSP for the background is Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP and I edged it with narrow strips of Pool Party. I built on that with lots of die cuts using Decorated Pine Dies for the large pine fronds, then Christmas Banners Dies for the rest of the die cuts. I wanted to use all the colors in the DSP. The sentiment banner is stamped with the Christmas Banners stamp set in Sweet Sorbet then die cut with the same dies. I added it to the card front with dimensionals under the far ends of the banner, then slipped all the other die cuts in under and held in place with liquid glue. The large pine fronds die cut in Garden Green served as the background – as mentioned using the Decorated Pine Dies. The lower pine fronds are from the Christmas Banner Dies. Next layer is the stamped in Pool Party ink leaves (and I did three) and die cut with the Christmas Banner Dies. I used Pear Pizzazz card stock to die cut the single layer of leaves – also from the Christmas Banner Dies. For the berry spray, the branches were die cut from Soft Suede card stock (again 3). The berries are stamped in Real Red ink and die cut with the C’mas Banners Dies then adhered with dabs of liquid glue to the variousSoft Suede branches. Lastly I added Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins: 3 in Garden Green above the banner and 2 in white below the banner.

For the inside of the card… I stamped a leaf bunch from the C’mas Banners stamp set in stamped off Pear Pizzazz ink, then over that with a pine spray from the same stamp set in Garden Green ink. I stamped the Merry in Real Red ink and the Christmas in Sweet Sorbet. Can you tell the difference? I like the contrast! This Basic White panel was adhered to Pool Party card stock then into the Thick Basic White card base ~ and the card was complete.

Christmas Banners Bundle.3

For the envelope, another bit of the same Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP on the flap and that was it. While this card has several die cuts, it is not heavy and I do not think will need extra postage – and that’s a PLUS!

Now HOP on to the next by clicking the ‘next’ link or by clicking on a name. Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s that time of week for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You may have come from the fun creation of Tara Carpenter or just hopped in right here. Whatever the case… welcome!

Perched In A Tree.1

Our challenge is a color one: Black & White + color of choice. I chose Balmy Blue, which you can see in the background between the trees. Snow gets a fun tinge to it when it’s falling at dusk :O) The challenge is below.

Back to my card… I die cut the Basic White front panel with the Aspen Trees Dies. It coordinates with Perched In A Tree stamp set and comes as a bundle (which means 10% off!). Remember, this bundle is available Jul 1 – which is Friday – woohoo!!! OK, card… I keep getting distracted. I used a Blending Brush to shade the aspens and Basic Gray ink. I love the look it gave. I set that aside and took another panel of Basic White and stamped the ‘snowflakes’ in Balmy Blue. I stamped the sweet bird in Memento ink and colored it with Watercolor Pencils in Balmy Blue and Early Espresso. I used a Blender Pen to smooth the pencil lines. I die cut the bird with the Aspen Trees Dies and adhered it with liquid glue. I did move it around a bit before I found the right spot, cuz wanted him peeking out of the trees. The Aspen die cut got lots of dimensionals & was adhered to the snow-stamped panel. That was added to the Thick Basic White card base. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray ink – love, love the font! – and fussy cut it. I used Stasmpin’ Seal on the back and wrapped a length of the Simply Elegant Trim in Silver on the back, then added dimensionals and placed it on the front. Final touch – a bit of glam with three Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in white.

Perched In A Tree, inside

For the inside… Using a Blending Brush I added Balmy Blue all around the edges of the Basic White panel, then stamped the sentiment from Perched In A Tree stamp set in Basic Gray ink. This was added to the inside of the card.

Perched In A Tree.3

For the envelope, more Balmy Blue ‘snowflakes’ to the flap and the wonderful Aspen branch stamped in Basic Gray to the front. I really, really like this. And yes, I took some liberties and substituted Basic Gray for the Black for the challenge. :O) Now – it’s time to get on with the hop!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners

Hi everyone… I didn’t post yesterday, silly me. But I had a REALLY good read of the most recent National Geographic magazine AND worked outside. But… here’s a promised card done in Parakeet Party – one of the new In Colors. It may seem a bit bright, but I have to say, I really, really like it. :O)

C’mas Banners Bundle.1

The card base as you can see, is Parakeet Party with a die cut in the same color die cut with Candy Canes Dies and adhered to the card base with liquid glue. The next is a grouping created on the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP (Sweet Sorbet). Layers attached to the DSP are die cuts in Garden Green card stock, Lovely Layers Vellum, Soft Suede, and the berries are die cut from 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper, Sweet Sorbet. The holly is stamped in both Garden Green ink & Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. The sentiment banner is stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink with the words in Garden Green ink. This was die cut with the Christmas Banner Dies and is on dimensionals. The fabulous die cut background is a die from the Candy Canes Dies, cut from Parakeet Party card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the same color card base. Isn’t that die wonderful? The Parakeet Party is a non-traditional color for Christmas, but I really like how it all ties together. Hubby is a conservative man and I wasn’t sure what he would think either, but he liked it a lot! The last touch for the card front was three Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in white.

C’mas Banners Bundle, inside

For the inside… the pine frond stamp from the Christmas Banners stamp set, first in Parakeet Party, then in Garden Green on the basic white panel.

C’mas Banners Bundle.3

As you can see, the envelope got the same treatment: pine frond from the C’mas Banners stamp set, stamped first in Parakeet Party ink, then in Garden Green ink. What do you think of the colors? It’s hard to tell the Sweet Sorbet is not Real Red! And I have to say, I like the contrasts of color.

All this week I’m sharing cards made with products from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. I hope you like the inspiration.
