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.

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)

Decorated with Happiness.3

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!

Products to make this card are from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration Catalog and can’t be shown below. They CAN be ordered Jul 1!!! If you do not have a demonstrator and need those catalogs or an Annual Catalog please reach out to me (the 2022-2023 AC) – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s time… for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You may have come from the fun & creative Tara or just dropping in. Whatever the case ~ here’s the sketch challenge.

And, drum role… here’s my card!

Season Of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog hop.1

The focus is Texture Chic Specialty DSP (special as it has gold in the various papers – and BTW, it’s g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. Some things I don’t like about this card 😩… I should have cut the DSP panels smaller, should also have put vellum (or something) behind the leaves so they stood out more. This was my first play with the Chic Dies – and they are so fab!!! Love, love. Just yesterday I learned that a friend’s step daughter lost her hubby, so this is going to my friend.

The ‘how to’…

  • Card stock base is Soft Succulent
  • next layer is Evening Evergreen adhered on a slant directly to the card base.(see the challenge :O)
  • Adhere two layers together of the Texture Chic Specialty DSP (HINT: I die cut several dies from the bottom DSP and since it doesn’t show, no one knows :O)
  • Die cut from Brushed Metallic Gold the ‘netting’ type die & adhere with liquid glue to the DSP
  • Adhere the two leaf die cuts from the Chic Dies & Texture Chic Sp. DSP, again with dabs of liquid glue
  • Tie a bow with the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold and adhere with a glue dot
  • Stamp the sentiment from Season of Chic Stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Soft Succulent scrap and fussy cut. Adhere with Mini Dimensionals to the DSP panels
  • Put dimensionals on the completed DSP panels and adhere to the card.
Season of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog Hop.inside

For the inside…

Use one of the die cuts from the Texture Chic Specialty DSP to the Basic White panel with dabs of liquid glue, then add to the inside of the card. No sentiment was added for flexibility of use, but since learning of a need for a sympathy card, I will have lots of room for comments, notes, something inspirational & hopefully comforting.

L-O-V-E this DSP… love the Season of Chic Bundle… can’t wait to play more. 😁

Season of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog Hop.3

For the envelope… more Texture Chic Sp DSP for the flap, cut to fit. For the front, I used one of the leaf stamps, inked with Pool Party ink, then using a dauber added Evening Evergreen in various places. Perfect!

Now… on with the hop… Use the ‘next’ or ‘previous’ button to take you to whomever you wish to visit, OR, click on a name to visit their blog. Next is Amy Koenders who always has something great to share.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pop-Up Dies

Today’s card is just full of sweetness. The colors are soft, the images are gentle – it’s just, well, lovely. I hope you like it too.

Pretty Pop-Up Sympathy.1

I cut three Basic White panels & ran two of them through the Pretty Pop-Up Dies using the rectangular die. I colored the images with very soft colors… Stampin’ Blends: Light Highland Heather, Light So Saffron, Dark Soft Sea Foam, and Light Smoky Slate. I stamped the last Basic White panel with a sentiment from Nature’s Prints (love the fonts in this set) in Smoky Slate ink, then ran this through the the mini cut & emboss machine using just the two butterfly images. I made sure the butterflies on each panel had their wings raised just a bit :O) then adhered all three panels to a Soft Sea Foam piece of card stock, then onto a slightly larger panel of Basic White, popped that on dimensionals and added it to the Soft Sea Foam card base. Oh wait… that card base has a piece of Subtles 6×6 DSP on it in Soft Sea Foam 😳 And the card front was done.

Pretty Pop-Up Dies.inside

For the inside… The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink using the Peaceful Moments stamp set – on a Basic White panel. I adhered a 1/2″ strip of the same Subtles 6×6 DSP near the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Pretty Pop-Up Sympathy.3

It’s really hard to see, but the envelope flap was run through the Timeworn Torn 3D embossing folder – and that was it – card is ready to be sent. This is going to a very favorite person who just lost her husband, age 95 or maybe 96. He really, really cared well for his wife who has memory issues. She still knows me and will appreciate the card, but the loss of her hubby will throw her into a tailspin, mostly because of the memory problems. Ugh… loss is very, very hard. I could have gone through my stash of cards and sent one already made, but there is something cathartic and healing in making a card for someone special.

Here’s another photo of the card…

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.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies

Good morning! Welcome to a Tuesday Blog Hop Group. If you have come from visiting Karen Finkle – welcome. Our theme challenge is ‘birthday’ and I’ve created a fun card with the Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.1

The Sentiments Silhouettes Dies is for die cutting sentiments in the coordinating Charming Sentiments stamp set. But it also has dies ‘outside of that’ – hearts, stars, birthday candles and more. I highly recommend this bundle – it’s fab!!!

I took a panel of Basic White and die cut five candles with the flame and two pattern candles. After die cutting I ran this through the Stripes & Splotches 3D embossing folder, obviously using the splotches :O) It adds texture and fun to the card. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a panel of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP. I inserted the die cuts of the two patterned candles, attaching them with liquid glue. I love how you can continue to see the patterned paper beneath them. Next, I took that same DSP and cut two panels with the Scalloped Contours Dies to make the scalloped edge. I used the same die to create the edge for the Basic White card base as well. With the card base edged, I added the scalloped pieces from the DSP. I then added the top panel, adhering with liquid glue. The sentiment comes from Sending Smiles stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink. I then added several Glossy Dots Assortments in both Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ~ and the card front was complete.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies, inside

For the inside I added a panel of Pool Party to the inside of the Basic White card base, then a ‘frame’ from Scalloped Contour Dies that I found in my stash. I love how it reinforces the scallops on the card front. The sentiment is again from Sending Smiles stamp set and stamped in Memento ink. The die cuts were taken from the Hues of Happiness DSP using the Sentiment Silhouette Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.3

For the envelope… I used Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends to color one of the candles & flames die cut from the card front and added it to the envelope. Below it is a strip of the same Hues of Happiness DSP used on the card. It just really brings everything together! This card was inspired by a slimline card I saw on Pinterest, created by Tami White. Remember card cuts are at the bottom of this post.
