Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder

Hello there! Today’s card features the extra gorgeous So Many Snowflakes Dies and I paired it with Snow Wonder stamp set for the sentiment on the front. What was extra fun was using the new SU! Blending Brushes ~ they are wonderful!!! And… they come in a 3-pack – eeeee. For some reason I cannot get my computer to allow me to share a photo of the brushes – but they are awesome… and will be available in the upcoming Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.

Now – to the card… here’s a sneak peek…

So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #1

The how to :O)…

  • Die cut the largest snowflake from Whisper White card stock using the So Many Snowflakes Dies
  • Using that panel and one of the new Blending Brushes, tap the brush in Balmy Blue ink and blend the color, creating a shadow of snowflakes on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White card stock. Continue to cover, moving the snowflake ‘stencil’ around so there are several shadows on the panel. It should look something like this. Notice there are varying shades of the Balmy Blue ink.
So Many Snowflake Dies ‘stenciled’ panel #2
  • Cut an Adhesive Sheet to 4 x 5 1/4, peel the backing and adhere to a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock
  • Die cut several snowflakes of varying sizes using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Whisper White card stock with the Adhesive Sheet on it.
  • Remove the backing on the die cut snowflakes one at a time as you lay them on the ‘shadowed’ card front
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Snow Wonder stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a 1 x 4 strip of Whisper White
  • Adhere this to a 1 1/4 x 4 strip of Balmy Blue card stock
  • Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front using dimensionals
  • Die cut yet another snowflake, this time from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – love this paper! Adhere to the sentiment panel with a couple of dots of liquid glue.
  • Add some glittery Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to several of the snowflakes
  • Adhere this panel to the Balmy Blue card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) and the card front is done.
So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #3

The inside & the envelope…

You can see in the photo above and below that I used one of the die cut ‘outlines’ as a stencil, the Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink. I did this on the envelope front and on the envelope flap. I also did it on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White for the inside of the card. Then I adhered one of the leftover die cut snowflakes that had adhesive on the back and placed it over one of the snowflakes stenciled on the panel. I liked the effect this created. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card base and voila…

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly

Hello again! Today’s card is another Christmas card. Somehow I can’t quit making them ~ it’s one of my favorite times of year. So, here we go… this was a CASE of a card made by Amy Koenders.

Joyful Holly ~ #1

Isn’t this cheerful? Here are the details…

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP 3 3/4 x 5. I adhered mine to the far left for a bit of a different look – yep, liquid glue is my ‘go to’.
  • Cut a banner in Garden Green card stock 1 5/8 x 5 and punch a banner end with the Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue
  • Cut another length, this time in Whisper White 2 x 5. Stamp the images using the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink. Stamp the inner pattern for the holly in Garden Green ink as well. Stamp the berries in Real Red ink. Trim the end using the same Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue.
  • Cut another strip, this time in Pear Pizzazz card stock 1 x 3 1/2. Trim both ends with the very fun Banner Pick a Punch. Adhere with liquid glue.
  • Using the 2″ Circle Punch and Shaded Spruce card stock, punch a circle :O)
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of Whisper White. Punch it out using the Everyday Label Punch. Adhere this to the circle with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the circle & sentiment to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Add a fun bow using the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon. This adds a nice sparkle to the card.
  • Add the red elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and your card front is done.

For the inside…

Joyful Holly inside – #2

I love the simplicity of the inside of this card. It uses the same stamp as the front, but no filler stamp – just the outline – and gives the holly branch a totally different look.

  • Stamp the outline image of the holly using the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp the sentiment, also from the Joyful Holly stamp set in
    Garden green ink
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with liquid glue and your card is complete. YAY!

I love this card, it is bright and cheerful, friendly. Let’s take another peek at the card front.

Joyful Holly #3

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas

Today’s post is all about Christmas using the Peaceful Boughs stamp set with coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies. I couldn’t help it – there are two cards for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop using the Christmas/ Holiday theme. I think you will find some wonderful inspiration on this hop. Enjoy…

My first card is made using the Wonder of The Season MEMORIES & MORE CARDS & ENVELOPES as my card base.

It is so shiny, it was really difficult to get a good photo…

  • Pear Pizzazz card stock is the bottom layer cut to 3 1/8 x 4 1/8 (cut 2 – one for inside) + scraps for the boughs.
  • Red Foil Sheets is next and cut 3 x 4. Adhere to the Pear Pizzazz with liquid glue
  • Die cut two single pine boughs from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.
  • Die cut one triple bough from Shaded Spruce card stock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies
  • Die cut two pine cones from either Soft Suede card stock or Early Espresso card stock. (The card stock in the photo is a retired color)
  • Adhere the pine boughs to the Red Foil layer with liquid glue. Adhere the pine cones with dimensionals.
  • Add the Linen Thread & Gold Cord bow with a glue dot to the pine cones
  • Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink using the Toile Christmas stamp set. Die cut with the Christmas Cardinal Dies that coordinate with Toile Christmas stamp set.
  • Adhere the sentiment banner with dimensionals to the Red Foil layer.
  • Adhere this completed layer to the card front with dimensionals.

for the inside…

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White cut 3 x 4
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel to Pear Pizzazz card stock cut 3 1/8 x 4 1/8
  • Adhere this completed panel to the inside of the card and voila! the card is complete…

The second card uses the Beautiful Boughs Dies, Painted Labels Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • The embossed layer is Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 using the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder and adhered with liquid glue to the card base
  • Cut Shaded Spruce card stock 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • Cut Neutrals DSP (Soft Suede) 3 x 3. Adhere to the Shaded Spruce panel with liquid glue.
  • Die cut two single boughs using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and Pear Pizzazz card stock
  • Die cut one triple bough using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and Shaded Spruce card stock
  • Adhere the boughs to the DSP panel with liquid glue
  • Die cut a single pine cone using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from Soft Suede card stock. Adhere with dimesnionals.
  • Tie a bow using Braided Linen Trim in Mossy Meadow (NEW ITEM!) and Gold Cord from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Adhere with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. Made a banner at one end.
  • Die cut a decorative strip using the Brushed Metallic Paper and the Painted Labels Dies. Adhere with liquid glue to the back of the sentiment banner. Add dimensionals to the right end of the banner and adhere to the card front. I also suggest putting some liquid glue on the left end of the sentiment banner to adhere to the pine bough square.

For the inside… and the envelope…

  • Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White card stock cut to 4 x 5 1/4. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set.
  • Stamp the pine boughs (yep, from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set) in Soft Suede ink, stamping off at least once, twice might be even better.
  • Cut a strip of the Neutrals DSP 2 1/4 x 6 and adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue. Trim to fit. YEAH! Card is done, done, done!

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Small Note

Good morning… Today’s card is a sneak peek of a stamp set that will be available in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. You may remember that for the last couple of days we had a SU! virtual convention – On Stage @ Home. This was one of the sets we received in our goody bag after registering to attend. Love the outlining/ drawing concept of these stamps. Here’s the card…

Enjoy the Moment – #1

This stamp set is all about seed pods – and honestly I cannot tell you to what plants they belong. Whatever they are, they are well done! And what I did here after stamping on Whisper White card stock with Crumb Cake ink was take my Crumb Cake Blends and outline the area with the dark blends, then follow that with the light blend, but not covering the entire thing. Then I went in with the Light So Saffron blend and colored some to show it off a bit. I went back in a did a bit more highlighting with the dark Crumb Cake blend.

Enjoy The Moment – #2

I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink, layered it on a panel of Subtles 6×6 DSP with liquid glue and wrapped the Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee around it and tied a knot, securing it with a glue dot. To complete the card front I added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins for added charm. All of this got dimensionals and was adhered to a Whisper White Note Card.

The inside and the envelope…

Enjoy The Moment, inside – #3

Again I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink and darkened areas with the dark Crumb Cake Blends, then going over it with the light Crumb Cake Blends. I also used light So Saffron Blends to add a bit of color. The envelope got more of the same Subtles 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap and a sweet sentiment ‘a little note’ on the front also in Crumb Cake ink. I intentionally stuck with only using the one stamp set – Enjoy The Moment to highlight many of the pods and sentiments in the set. Here’s a photo of the stamp set.

available in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog

I’m really enjoying this set. The pods are beautifully drawn and i especially appreciate the sketch look.

I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of one of the stamp sets in the Jan-Jun 2021 catalog. There will be more to come in the not-so-distant future. Other products for todays project may be found below.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Merry Moose Notecard

Today’s card is just so sweet – and yet it is also masculine. It would be perfect for a man for just about any occasion, but I have chosen it to be a Christmas card. The Merry Moose stamp set and coordinating Moose Punch are a carryover from last years catalog – and I love the sentiments and images in this set.

Merry Moose Notecard – #1

The finished size of the notecards is 3 1/2 x 5 – a perfect size for a quick note. For this particular card I hav e adhered Merry Merlot card stock – a nice masculine color – that is cut 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. Adhered to that on dimensionals is a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP. For some added strength to the DSP I did adhere with liquid glue a piece of Whisper White slightly smaller in size.

Next I added a length of the Black/ White Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack, and tied it in a bow, placed a glue dot just beneath the knot to keep it in place. Then come these cute moose marching across… one in Basic Black card stock and one in Whisper White card stock. They were punched with the Moose Punch – so quick and easy! They are mounted on dimensionals as well. For a final touch I added three white elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and the card front was complete. I love the simplicity of this notecard.

For the inside… and the envelope…

Merry Moose Notecard, inside – #2

I choose to stamp the larger tree from the Merry Moose stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and the added grass in Garden Green ink (hard to tell that). The sentiment, also from the Merry Moose stamp set is stamped in Merry Merlot ink. For the envelope, I used the same design from the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap. Done, done, done.

Here’s a last look at the completed project – and as I said b efore, I love the simplicity of this card.

Merry Moose Notecard – #3

The product list may be found below. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Tomorrow I hope to show you an card or two made with another of the stamp sets that will be in the Jan-Jun 20212 Mini Catalog. Until then…

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Onstage – Part II

All I can say is WOW – what an incredibly inspiring day 1 of On Stage @ Home for this years convention. Yes, the Covid 19 outbreak kept us at home but the uplifting side is how much I learned from Sara’s opening remarks to the creativity of staff at the home office to demonstrators world wide.

While yesterday was a big Stampin’ Up day, it was also hubby’s and my 54th anniversary. Wow again, right? This gentle man has so supported me in this new venture of being a demonstrator, but he has also done that our whole marriage. There are just no words at how blessed I feel ~ a true gift from God. While I don’t have any pictures of us from yesterday, I might be able to share one or two from this past summer. Here they are…

These pictures are from our early morning walks to a nearby County park. Thanks for our many wonderful years together dear man…

Now… back to our card making… we had received card stock colors & cuts but no layout for the cards we were to create. So when I chose the various DSP to use from the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP pack, I didn’t really know how it was to be used. In other words, I’ve changed things up just a bit for a couple of the cards because I preferred one card base over another~ or whatever. Here are the cards…

Aren’t these gorgeous? They use one of the new bundles in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog: Dragonfly Garden + a Dragonfly Punch. These cards also show off some of the fabulous DSP: Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP and the cute Ladybug Trinkets and of course the Braided Linen Trim in Mossy Meadow. I did finish off the insides of the cards and prepared envelopes as well, but I won’t show those today. I’ll give more detail on these cards in another day or two. This is just a sneak peek 😏

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! On Stage

Hi Everyone… today begins a full day of SU! On Stage Virtual Convention – wheee! We’ll do lots of stamping with one of the new stamp bundles Dandy Garden Project Collection. It includes a stamp set & coordinating punch, trinkets, linen thread trim & 6×6 DSP. I am smitten with all of it! Here’s a card I made a week or so ago with this collection of products.

Dandy Garden Project Collection

Are these dragonflies gorgeous or what? The DSP in the background is in Mossy Meadow, but I wanted, in this card, to highlight the sweet bouquet of flowers and on the envelope particularly, the dragonfly. I also have used it on the inside. Our fun stamping today will be using these products again :O)

Last night was the opening of our virtual convention, namely recognizing achievements by many demonstrators. Here’s our logo for this year’s virtual…

And here’s my award…

Special thanks to my customers and those who follow my posts. I so appreciate each one of you. This keeps my creative juices flowing and feeling productive. Virtual hugs to all… 🤗🤗🤗 Lots of room for growth!

That’s it for today… I’ll be back later with a couple of cards I have created on my own using this Dandy Garden Project Collection.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas, Curvy Dies

Oh it is fun to play with this Curvy business ~ Curvy Christmas is only a part of it… Here’s the whole of it… The Quite Curvy Variety Bundle consists of the Quite Curvy stamp set & the Curvy Dies. These will carry over to the 2021 catalog. The Curvy Christmas and Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP will not carry over but are available to order as of YESTERDAY, NOV 3 and can be purchased as part of the variety bundle or separately. Honestly – this variety bundle is worth the investment, but of course, that is a decision you will have to make.

Available to customers Nov 3!

Todays card features the Curvy Christmas stamp set, the Curvy Dies AND the Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP.

Curvy C’mas, Curvy Dies, Classic C’mas 6×6 DSP

I used quite a few of the elements in the stamp set ~ all of them curvy ~ and I love it. The trees, the stars, the sentiments ~ this one looks a bit country, what do you say? Let’s break it down so you can create one of your own.

  • the card base is Sahara Sand cs 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • the next layer has several facets to it: Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4, Classic C’mas 6×6 DSP 3 x 5 1/4. (I cut it at 3 so there would be leftover for the envelope flap) and the top layer is Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 cut with the Curvy Dies.
  • I began by cutting the the top panel then stamping it with the various stamps: the sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, then the trees with Shaded Spruce ink, then the stars with Versamark and embossed in Gold. Remember to use the embossing buddy before stamping with Versamark. This releases any static that will draw additional embossing powder where you don’t want it. Ask me how I know that 😞 I used my Stamparatus for stamping everything. That way if the image/ sentiment isn’t quite right, it’s easy to re-ink and stamp again in the exact same spot. And these are long stamps. Just sayin’… save yourself some frustration by using the Stamparatus.
  • Adhere the Sahara Sand Classic C’mas 6×6 DSP to the Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 panel with liquid glue. Adhere the stamped curvy panel with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the Sahara Sand card base.
  • Add 3 beautiful Holiday Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment and your card front is done.

For the inside..

Curvy C’mas card inside
  • I stamped the precious bow in Cherry Cobbler ink on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White.
  • I then stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink. Both of these come from the Curvy C’mas stamp set.
  • The next step was sponging the edges with Sahara Sand ink using a sponge dauber. This completed the country look I was looking for. :O)
  • Adhere the panel to the card base with liquid glue and the card is complete.

The envelope…

Curvy C’mas, Curvy Dies

I used the leftover panel of Classic C’mas 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand but turned it over to the pine branches side; adhered it to the envelope flap, trimmed to fit. This totally coordinates with the pine branches stamp used, in Shaded Spruce ink, along the border of the envelope.

Let me remind you, the Curvy Christmas stamp set and the Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP are only available until Jan 3. Purchasing the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle has a 10% automatic discount :O)

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Gift Set

Today’s cards were such a delight to create. For one thing, when creating for someone special, somehow it makes a difference. I wanted to make a card set using all one DSP package, but have the cards be totally different, but not too fussy or bulky ~ and I think it was successful. Let’s take a look.

The Forever Greenery DSP is simply stunning. The colors are vibrant but not too, too, if you know what I mean. Anyway, let’s start with the first card.

I wanted to enter this into a challenge, and therefore the Stitched Rectangle Dies came in very handy, as did the Forever Fern stamp set for the sentiment and some lovely Holiday Rhinestone Jewels and the 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Whisper White. Alas, that particular challenge closed before I posted, but I sill liked the idea.

Here are the card cuts for card #1…

  • Soft Sea Foam 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Shaded Spruce 4 x 5 1/4 (cut 2, one for inside panel
  • Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5 (cut 2, one for inside

Card # 2: it’s sometimes difficult to coordinate DSP within it’s own pack, but this came fairly easily and I really like how it turned out. Again I used the !/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Whisper White, and combined it with the Perfect Parcel Dies for the sentiment banner and Many Mates stamp set for the sentiments. The sentiments were stamped in Shaded Spruce ink and the leaves for the inside of the card and envelope were Soft Sea Foam.

Card Cuts for this card:

  • Soft Sea Foam 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Shaded Spruce 4 x 5 1/4 (cut 2, one for inside) + banner
  • Forever Greenery DSP: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2; 2 1/2 x 1 3/8; and 1 1/4 x 5
  • Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5 + banner

Card #3 has a flat card base with the folded card on top. Here I die cut the lovely band out of one of the Forever Greenery DSP selections using the Detailed Band Dies. The oval sentiment banner comes from the same die set and the sentiment itself from A Wish For Everything stamp set and again I used the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels. For the inside and the envelope, I stamped the leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink.

Card cuts for this card:

  • Whisper White Thick 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 + oval
  • Shaded Spruce 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Soft Sea Foam 3 1/4 x 6 1/2 scored at 3 1/4
  • Forever Greenery DSP approx 4 1/2 x 3

I love this gift set and think the recipient will as well. I’m curious if you have a favorite.

Products for this sweet set may be found below. Remember to use my CURRENT HOST CODE XS4MSSFN when your purchase is between $50-$150 to receive a SU! gift from me valued at $10. If your purchase is over $150, don’t use my host code so you can reap the benefits of Stampin’ Rewards. (you will still receive the free gift from me!)
