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.

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.

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!

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! 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.

C’mas Banners Bundle, inside

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.

Stampin’ Up! Decorated w/ Happiness #2

Good Saturday morning! It’s a goin’ to be a hot one today. I’ll need to get outdoor chores done ASAP, but I do want to share this card with you first. It’s yesterday’s card in different colors – monochromatic if you will, and I like it even better.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2.1

The card base is Smoky Slate, inks for pine boughs & sentiment are also Smoky Slate; Silver Foil for the bell, pine boughs and stars; Shaded Spruce for the small boughs & Cherry Cobbler for the ‘smoosh’ behind the bell; and Whisper White for the snowflakes. And – you can see the Jingle Bell Trinket – I love the added touch and it doesn’t bother me that it contrasts with the foil.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2, inside

The inside I did just a bit differently from yesterdays card – by adding the pine bough. Inks are Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler & Shaded Spruce stamped on a Basic White panel.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2.3

The envelope is very similar to yesterday’s card – just using Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler. And here are the photos for yesterday’s card…

Stampin’ Up! Decorated w/ Happiness

Happy Friday! We have had some stunning weather here on the East Coast… and we have taken advantage! I hope you are able to ‘get out & enjoy’ in your area of the country :O) My card for today is… guess what… a Christmas card! Whoweee! The stamp bundle comes from the upcoming, soon to be order-able Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. I was inspired by a card on page 27, just changed up a bit.

Decorated w/ Happiness.1

The card base is Garden Green and I’ve used Garden Green ink to stamp the pine branches in a couple of different directions. They don’t show much as the are nearly covered with the die cut pine branches from the Decorated Pine Dies from Gold Foil. (cut 2 and add to card front with dabs of liquid glue) I then stamped the ‘snow’ in Whisper White ink all over the card. Truthfully, this stamp was too busy for me – I much prefer the snowflake stamp in the Decorated with Happiness stamp set! So use that if you decide to CASE this card. Next step was to die cut the Basic White banner using the Painted Label Dies. I die cut three small pine fronds in Garden Green card stock, adhered them w/ liquid glue to the banner, stamped the ‘smoosh’ in Real Red ink as a background to the bell. Die cut the bell and several gold stars using more of the dies in this bundle. Adhere the bell with liquid glue over the ‘smoosh’, then the very cute Jingle Bell Trinket with a glue dot.. Put dimensionals on the back of the banner and add to the card front. Adhere stars with dabs of liquid glue – and the card front is done!

Decorated w/ Happiness, inside

For the inside… stamp the sentiment from Decorated with Happiness in Garden Green ink on the Basic White panel, then add the darling ornament stamp in Real Red ink – also from the same stamp set; adhere to the inside of the card :O)

The envelope is just wonderful – at least I think so. The same pine fronds from Decorated w/ Happiness stamp set were stamped on the envelope front & flap. I stamped the same ornament from inside the card in Real Red ink to bring the card & envelope together. L-o-v-e!

Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Treat Bags

Hello Friday! Christmas must be on my mind this week… Yesterday’s blog hop was a
Christmas Fun Fold, today is a very cute (well two) treat bag. Our out of town daughter came last weekend bringing her family and a couple of fun ‘gifties’. The laser-cut wooden stars were one of the treats and not a Stampin’ Up! product. As I was trying to decide what to do with them, she said she would like to use them in a window or on a tree… or something. Here’s what I did.

Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.1
Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.2

The paper is from – what else – the Sale-a-bration Catalog and is a FREE Item with a $50 purchase. You can get your hands. on this paper Jul 3!!! It’s called Silver & Gold 6×6 DSP. This is obviously the gold. And I’ve used ribbon from the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog: Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack. It’s part of a Suite of products called the Sweetest Christmas Suite on pages 9-11. Behind each star is a glimmer paper: Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer Paper – also part of the Sweetest Christmas Suite. The Glimmer paper was die cut with Layering Circles Dies and added to a Basic White piece cut with Layering Circles Dies, but with a scallop. I slipped a White Baker’s Twine through the star, tied a knot and when tying the Real Red or Garden Green Ribbon, I slipped it in between to hold it in place.

Here’s how to do the treat bag.

  • 6×6 piece of card stock or DSP, scored at the top: 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 4 1/8 & 5 1/2
  • Turn paper to right to score for the bottom: 1 3/8
  • Trim as shown in photo
Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.3
  • Add Tear n Tape to narrow strip ~ see photo
  • Burnish score lines with fingers, fold in half along middle score line and seal after removing Tear n Tape covering.
  • Fold in bottom pieces and seal with Tear n Tape or adhesive of choice.
  • Pinch top together; tie ribbon around the top. This can just slip off to get to the treats inside :O)

Fun, right? The fun part about making a treat bag like this, is that it can be decorated to fit the occasion: hearts, banners stamped & layered ~ the possibilities are endless. It’s up to you. Would love to see your creations, so please share.
