Stampin’ Up! Textured Chic DSP and More for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday to you! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with a fun sketch challenge.

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 12/8
Stampin' Up! Blog Hop Sketch Challenge 12/8

Time is quickly nearing Christmas – how many days? I’m not going to count, it’s too scary! We have our tree up & decorated and I finally found the tree skirt :O) I put it away in a different place last year but couldn’t remember just where that was :O( We don’t usually put our tree up quite so early (it’s fresh cut) but hubby is having knee replacement surgery next week and everything will go on hold for a bit. I’m hoping to continue posting regularly but we’ll see. My goal is to prep ahead so I can give him all the time necessary, but … there’s always a but.

Today’s card uses two main stamp bundles: both the Seasoned Chic with Chic Dies and Christmas Banners with Christmas Banners Dies.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic.Blog Hop 12/8.1

The card base is a typical A2 tent card on it’s side with Evening Evergreen. I’ve layered a panel of Textured Chic 12 x 12 DSP on Basic White and adhered it to the card front, leaving a border both top & bottom. Next I used the splendid Chic Dies to die cut snowflakes from Basic White and Soft Succulentcard stocks. Then I stamped the banner on Basic White with Soft Succulent ink and the Christmas Banners stamp set. The words on the banner are also Soft Succulent ink and come from the Christmas Banner stamp set. I attached the banner to the card front with dimensionals then added the snowflakes with liquid glue, glue dots or dimensionals.nFor a bit of extra glam and to bring in another color, I used the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and love the subtle contrast!

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic.Blog Hop 12/8.2

For the inside, snowflakes from the Season of Chic stamp set stamped randomly in Soft succulent ink. The sentiment comes from the Season of Chic stamp set and is in Evening Evergreen ink. All this on a Basic White panel then secured into the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic.Blog Hop 12/8.3

For the envelope, a coordinating panel of the Textured Chic DSP for the flap and a few more snowflakes from Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent ink on the front – and done! This card has a real elegance and simplicity at the same time: soft colors and not too fussy. This would an easy card to replicate if necessary.

Now – time to move along the hop to the fabulous Carol Buckalew. Either click on the ‘next’ button or on a name if you prefer to hop around.

Now, I promised a money holder so here ’tis. Along with wrapped gifts, we have been in the habit of giving a check to our adult children and their spouses. And having that in an attractive holder makes it all the more special – and it’s fun to individualize. The one I’m sharing today is generic and they are so simple to make!

Stampin' Up! Money Holder

I’ve used Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP to decorate the Sweet Sorbet Card stock, the Very Best Trio Punch to create the edges for the top, Sweet Candy Canes stamp set & it’s coordinating Candy Cane Dies to decorate the tag. And the tag itself was punched with the Lasting Label Punch.

The base is 6 3/4 x 7 1/8, scored on the short side at 2″ (to create the top) and 5″ (to create the bottom). I used the Very Best Trio Punch to create the decorative edges on the top. Burnish the score lines. The Sweetest Christmas DSP is cut to fit the upper & lower front panels: 1 3/4 x 6 7/8 for the top panel; 1 1/4 x 6 7/8 for the bottom panel. Remember to punch the top panel only on the two corners to match the front of the Money Envelope Holder. Add Tear n’ Tape to the inside of the lower panel, and adhere.

Now create the belly band: cut card stock 1 x 7; wrap around the money holder back to front and adhere ends together. Decorate as desired. For this particular band, I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White piece approximately 2 x 3, then punched it with the Lasting Label Punch. The sentiment comes from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink and die cut them with the Candy Canes Dies. They were adhered with liquid glue. I then cut a Sweet Sorbet panel slightly larger than the punch white piece and adhered the two together. Adhere this to the belly band… remember to put adhesive on the belly band then attaching the decorated piece to it. Slide over the money holder & voila – all done. 😀

Stampin’ Up! Hope & Peace + DSP for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the hop! We have a sketch challenge today that has all kinds of possibilities. I hope you too will find the hop inspiring and want to join our fun.

Stampin' Up! Hope & Peace + DSP, Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 11/10

My card pretty much follows the sketch, don’t you think? This particular piece of DSP is from Painted Christmas DSP and I love the softness of this background. I layered this panel on a Basic White piece and adhered it to the Garden Green card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink using the Hope & Peace stamp set from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. It was stamped on Basic White and die cut it with the Stylish Shapes Dies. I had another scrap of the Painted Christmas DSP and cut it to 3/4″ x 2 12. I put this in place on the card front then added the stamped circle die cut over it using dimensionals. For a bit of added color and glam I added the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins. All the half dimensionals used on the back of the circle hold both the circle & the strip in place 😏

Stampin' Up! Hope & Peace + Merriest Moments.2

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink on the Basic White inside panel. I pulled out the Merriest Moments stamp set which is a carry-over and stamped the holly leaves in Garden Green ink.I added more of the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins in Sweet Sorbet and really like the added touch.

Stampin' UP! Hope & Peace + DSP. blog hop 11/10

For the envelope, more of the same Painted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope I stamped the holly leaves from Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green ink, then stamped the berries from the same stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink ~ and the card/ envelope was done!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome! Today’s hop challenge is to create something for the holidays. You will see quite a variety today so I hope you make the rounds of all participants.

My card for today is different for me and I can’t decide… well, you will have to see for yourself. I began with Crumb Cake card stock for an A2 size card. I die cut two circles with the Stylish Shapes Dies, one using the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP ‘cuz it looks like snowflakes to me! The other is in vellum using the Lovely Layers Vellum run through the Wintry 3D embossing folder after being die cut, using the snowflake folder. You remember this is a two folder item, right? The other folder has pine needle branches which I also love.

Stampin' Up! C'mas for the Tue Hop 11/8

The background circle is in Sweet Sorbet and I put dimensionals on the back to adhere to the card front. Vellum, because it shows any adhesive, is attached with glue dots behind the added sequins 😁 The sequins are Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels. The way I did that was to attach the sequins, then add the glue dots to adhere it to the other circle. The tree comes from the Happy Forest Dies. Trees are one of my favorite dies – and this is like a ‘Charlie Brown’ tree to me. I die cut three of these from Thick Basic White card stock and adhered them together for strength and depth. I cut mini dimensionals to use behind the trunk of the tree and a bit of liquid glue for the part that attaches to the vellum circle. I added an additional cut mini dimensional to the back of the vellum to support the top of the tree so it’s pretty solid.

The sentiment is from the Hope & Peace stamp set and is stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White panel die cut with the Stylish Shapes banner die. I enlarged it a bit to fit the sentiment. This too was added with dimensionals behind it ~ and the card front was done.

Stampin' Up! C'mas for the hop 11/8

For the inside… another of the sentiments from Hope & Peace stamp set stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink on the Basic White panel. This was adhered with liquid glue to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! C'mas Tue Hop 11/8

The envelope got more of the Sweet Sorbet Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP panel adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit. Now… time to visit the others on the hop. You may click the next or previous buttons if you started here or click on a name to take you elsewhere. Enjoy the hop!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Decorations

Good Monday morning! Are you all adjusted to the time change? I confess, I am not. And our dog definitely is not. Enough already…. Today’s post is about ornaments or packaging, whichever you choose. And I forget what they are called 🥴, but they are very fun to make.

Stampin' Up! Paper Decorations
Stampin' Up! Paper Decoration.2

Aren’t these fun? Of course, these are the same, just turned over to the other side so you can see both. The DSP is Painted Christmas. I simply took a 12″ length about 1 1/4″ in width and scored it every 1/2″, then folded & scored so it was like an accordion, then adhered the two ends together to form the circle. I also found it was better to use a glue gun once it was at this stage to adhere the center circle to the accordion. Below is a photo prior to the center being attached, then the reverse side after..

Stampin' Up! Paper decoration.3
Stampin' Up! Paper Decoration.4

I used the silicone mat as a foundation for the accordion circle, and a glue gun to add adhesive to the center area and added the die cut circle. The die cut circles are from die cut from Garden Green card stock and use the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Your next question might be, “What are you going to do with these?” Here are some ideas…

  • attach to a package front
  • add string and hang at various lengths in a window, or on a bannister
  • decorate a Christmas tree
  • add string and hang at various lengths from a spring tension rod in an entryway

What’s fun about these is how different they look in various widths. These second set of photos – the width was more like 1 3/4″. And of course, you could make these from regular card stock and die cut the center from a coordinating color. Here, I was just using odds & ends of strips left over.

Stampin’ Up! Dies Do The Work!

Good afternoon ~ it’s Sunday and I have pretty card for you today, created by combining a few different dies & mostly Thick Basic White card stock. I was inspired by several white cards I saw on Pinterest.

Stampin' Up! Frosted Flurry Dies, Painted Labels Dies & Grove Dies

I began this card by doing the die cutting from Thick Basic White card stock. It’s a bit stronger than the regular Basic White: the wreath is from Painted Labels Dies; the snowflakes are from Frosted Flurry Dies; and the deer is from the Grove Dies and it is cut from Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped the sentiment using Crumb Cake ink and the new Framed & Festive stamp set. The next step was to run a panel of Basic White through the Timber 3D embossing Folder to create a nice textured background. The stars were adhered to the wreath with a rolled in half glue dot, overlapping ever so slightly. I adhered the wreath directly to the dry embossed panel, then added the deer with mini dimensionals. I added the doubled ribbon bow made from Linen Thread with a glue dot. (This made three points of interest in Crumb Cake!)This completed panel was adhered to the Thick Basic White tent-fold A2 card base. I thought some sparkly would be nice so added the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins (in white) on the snowflake centers.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive sentiment

For the inside… I used the embossing buddy to clean the area of static & stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink, then sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder. The sentiment comes from the new Framed & Festive stamp set (available to customers Nov 1) I had an extra snowflake left over and added it to the sentiment, then another Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequin, in Gold this time. I adhered this to the inside of the card and the card was done!

Stampin' Up! Frosted Flurry Dies, Painted Labels Dies, Grove Dies.2

I really like this mostly white look and decided to only run a panel of Basic White through the Timber 3D embossing folder, adhere it to the flap and trim to fit. Done, done! And I love it! Is there anything I would change – yes… I would move the deer more to the left so the ears were closer to the snowflakes on the left, creating a little more space. The other thing I would do is stamp the Noel with VersaMark ink and sprinkle with Gold embossing powder & heat set. I might also cut down the embossed panel a bit, layer it on another Basic White, put dimensionals on the back & adhere to the card base. So, you know what this means…I’ll have to make another with these changes 🥴😀👍.

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Christmas DSP for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning! We have a fun sketch challenge for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.

Stampin' Up! Inkin' Blog Hop 10/27
Stampin' Up! Inkin' Hop Sketch Challenge

This is such a fun sketch that my mind was whirling with ideas. I finally settled with this card.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest C'mas DSP.1

I’ve used the Sweetest Christmas DSP as the focus for this challenge – both as background and center image. These candy canes are so cute! I’ve also used Layering Circles Dies, Harvest Dies for the sentiment banner, 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Sweet Sorbet, and for additional embellishment the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in Sweet Sorbet. It should be no surprise then, that all the layer backgrounds are Sweet Sorbet :O)

Stampin' Up! Sweet Candy Canes for the inside.2

For the inside… Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and Sweet Sorbet ink for the candy cane & Garden Green ink for the sentiment – also from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set ~ stamped on Basic White card stock and layered on Sweet Sorbet, then adhered to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest C'mas DSP for Thur hop.3

For the envelope, more of the same Sweetest Christmas DSP adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit – and that was it! So easy, so festive, so perfect for this challenge. Now it’s time to hop on to visit Carol’s fun creation. I can’t wait to see what she has done. Click the next button to take you there or click on a name to visit someone else. :O) Enjoy hopping!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas with Awash in Beauty DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes

I’ve taken some unexpected DSP and combined it with Wonderful Snowflakes & Wintry 3D Embossing Folder to make a really pretty Christmas Card. I have also heat embossed the Wonderful Snowflake with silver embossing powder. I’ve also added a fun ‘knot bow’ with the Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! C'mas w/ Awash in Beauty DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes.1

The card base is a piece of Blushing Bride card stock with a slightly smaller layer of Basic White. On top of that is a panel of the Awash In Beauty DSP embossed with the Wintry 3D embossing folder – the snowflake. Remember this embossing folder is a two-set and narrow. Narrow means they could fit in the mini cut & emboss machine. However, I was embossing a panel larger than what would fit in the mini, and ran it through twice. Once embossed I adhered this to the Basic White panel on the card front. Next I worked on the Wonderful Snowflake: rubbed gently with the embossing buddy, tapped the snowflake with the VersaMark ink pad, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat embossed. I did this twice so there was a smooth layer of silver on the snowflake. And when I used the Heat Tool, I heated from the underside of the snowflake. Next I cut a Basic White circle with the largest of the Layering Circle Dies. I took Blending Brush and Blushing Bride ink to add some color. I did the same with Merry Merlot ink. I added the Wonderful Snowflake with a dimensional. I cut a square of Silver Foil, then a slightly larger one of Basic White and adhered them all together, and then directly to the embossed front.

I stamped the sentiment using the Hope & Peace stamp set: first with VersaMark then sprinkling with silver embossing powder and heat setting with the Heat Tool – all on a strip of Awash In Beauty DSP. I adhered this to another strip of Basic White, put dimensionals on it and added it to the card base. The last step was to tie a knot with the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and adhere it with a glue dot. And the card front – was done!

Stampin' Up! C'mas w/ Awash in Beauty DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes. inside.2

For the inside I took another panel of Basic White and ran just the left edge through with the Wintry 3D Snowflake embossing folder. I then stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink – the sentiment came from Hope & Peace stamp set. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card – and I called it done…

Stampin' Up! C'mas w/ Awash in Beauty DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes

For the envelope I ran a piece of the Awash In Beauty DSP through the same Wintry 3D snowflake embossing folder and adhered it to the flap of the envelope. That was it. I love the sparkle of the silver foil and the heat embossing!
