Stampin’ Up! Boughs of Holly + Merriest Moments for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi there! We have a challenge for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop that is sketch challenge and here’s what I did for it.

Stampin' Up! Slimline card with Boughs of Holly DSP & more
Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 7/18/22
Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I’ve chosen to do a slimline card :O) for this challenge using the Boughs of Holly DSP as the main focus. I even used another piece of DSP as a layer behind the super colorful panel. I colored the Crinkled Seam Binding with a Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to ‘tie’ it all together. And the sentiment on the front is on a Basic White piece stamped in Mossy Meadow ink using the Leaves of Holly stamp set & die cut with the Holly Berry Dies. These two coordinate & so when purchased together offer a 10% discount!!! Just sayin’… if you want this bundle, this is the way to go. OK, what else…you can see I slipped the ribbon behind the sentiment banner for a bit of fun. I think it adds a nice touch. The ribbon is adhered in place with a glue dot and the piece that slips behind the sentiment banner also has a glue dot. The banner is on dimensionals. Measurements will be given at the end of this post. :O)

Stampin' Up! slimline card, inside, Merriest Moments

For the inside I used another piece of the same DSP as on the layer on the front, from Boughs of Holly DSP. then added a Basic White panel. This panel is stamped using Merriest Moments stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The holly leaves are stamped first in Old Olive ink, stamped off, then with a sponge dauber, inked with Shaded Spruce ink and stamped on the panel. I love this look, the varied colors so similar to nature! Again, card stock measurements will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin' Up! Slimline Envelopes

And here’s the Slimline Envelope (157981) decorated using the Merriest Moments stamp set.I inked the holly leaf stamp in Old Olive, stamped off, used the sponge dauber & Shaded Spruce ink to add a bit of variation, then stamped the envelope with each holly leaf. And that was it!!! YAY!

Stampin’ Up! Holly Berry Dies and More

Good Sunday morning! I have another Christmas card for you, and here it is mid August. :O) I’m just getting around to playing with the Holly Berry Dies ~ and yes, they coordinate with Leaves of Holly stamp set and you save 10% when purchasing together. It is a fabulous set. Let’s take a look …

Stampin' Up! Holly Berry Dies & More

Look at those gorgeous holly leaves. Such detail! And these are large leaves too. Ok, so here’s what I did… I covered the front of the card base (Basic White Thick) with Boughs of Holly DSP. I took another panel of Boughs of Holly DSP and backed it with a piece of Basic White, same size. I cut a Wonderful Snowflakes in half and played with placement as it was ton go behind the layer just cut. Once in place, I added the smaller layer on dimensionals. I did a bit of die cutting: Soft Suede for the detail of the holly and Shaded Spruce for behind it. I die cut another holly detail die in Basic White. I also die cut the two layers for the berries, using some scrap of the Boughs of Holly DSP that I covered the front of the card base. I loosely adhered one of the holly layers together, the other I adhered totally. And the berry dies I adhered together as well. I used a card on page 24 of the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog for my inspiration. After determining placement, I began adhering leaves & berries in place. I the cut a 1/2″ Natural Woven ribbon in half lengthwise, colored one side with a Stampin’ Blends with Light Crumb Cake, tied a bow and adhered it in place with a glue dot. The last part of the card front was the sentiment banner. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink on a Basic White piece then die cut it with a banner die from the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered this with dimensionals and called the card front done.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set, card inside

For the inside, I cut a panel of Boughs of Holly for my background and adhered it in place. On a basic White panel, I stamped the holly leaves in Shaded Spruce, second generation for the darker leaf, then continued third generation for the other two leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink still using the Leaves of Holly stamp set. I adhered this panel in place and the card was done.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set, envelope

As you can see, more of the red Boughs of Holly DSP for the envelope flap. For the front, more holly leaves in Shaded Spruce using the Leaves of Holly stamp set. When stamping second and third generation, it’s best to re-ink between stamping, stamp off on a scrap then onto your main piece. Love this bundle of stamps & dies! You’ll see more of this I’m sure. 😁

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Shapes, Masculine

Good Wednesday morning! We had rain last night at some point – stove clock and microwave clocks were flashing when I got up. I must have been very sound asleep! Gotta check the rain gage in a bit. How about you ~ what’s going on in your part of the world? Ah, but this post is about card making… so… today’s card is pretty fun and amazingly masculine. The Stylish Sketches stamp set is a FREE one during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order, and it has a couple of really interesting and different stamps.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine

When I think masculine, I usually think dark colors. This is anything but that. Take a look at that wolf – isn’t he stunning? We have a couple of wolves in our neighborhood, lots of woods for their den, etc. And we have marveled at them! They are beautiful! So this stamp set was a must for me, when I had options of choice for FREE product. This card has several layers: card base is Thick Basic White, next layer is Smoky Slate with a Basic White embossed panel, adhered ton the card base with dimensionals. And oh yes, the embossing folder is Timeworn Type 3D. The next layer is Smoky Slate and a panel of Gingham Cottage plaid in Smoky Slate. Around that is wrapped Gray Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, and tied with a simple knot. Yes, I did add a glue dot under the knot. You also see three Classic Matte Dots in dark gray. This was adhered with dimensionals. To the upper right is the wolf stamped in Memento Black on a Basic White piece and adhered with dimensionals on the right and liquid glue on the left. I also stamped the sentiment in Memento ink and adhered it in the same fashion: dimensionals on the right, liquid glue on the left.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine, inside

For the inside of the card, I stamped just part of the wolf (as though he is going across our front yard) in Memento Black ink on a Basic White panel, adhered it to Smoky
Slate and then into the card base.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine w/ envelope

For the envelope, more of the same Smoky Slate Gingham Cottage DSP on the flap and another wolf on the front, stamped in Memento Black ink. I love this wolf! Could be because we have seen a couple of wolves on a daily basis here. And the image is like a true sketch, with extra lines and all. What a fun stamp! Masculine cards do not come easily for me, but with this stamp I can see several possibilities. YAY!! I’ll list dimensions of each of the layers at the end of the post.

Some of the products to make this card are from the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other two catalogs available right now are the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Catalog which shows all the FREE items offered by Stampin’ Up! Jul 1-Aug 31.

Stampin’ Up! Trees for Sale for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’ve used Trees for Sale stamp set and the coordinating Tree Lot Dies that are so stinkin’ cute! These dies are FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order and are a must have…

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale w/ coordinating Tree Lot Dies

The challenge is shown on. the right… I’ve taken some liberties with the sketch, but I think my card follows it… I used the Double Oval Punch to create the oval that I embossed. The card is just busy, so the eye moves a lot. But I think it still works.

I used the Boughs of Holly DSP adhered to a Soft Succulent panel just slightly larger. That got dimensionals and was added to the Thick Basic White card base. Still using Thick Basic White, I die cut two trees (both the outline and detail + an additional tree detail) using the Tree Lot Dies (they are FREE w/ a qualified order during Sale-a-bration… hint hint) I die cut another tree outline from Soft Succulent card stock then put the trees together with tiny dabs of liquid glue. I then punched an oval from Thick Basic White using the Double Oval Punch. I ran that through the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the ‘Trees for Sale’ sign with Mossy Meadow ink on another scrap of Thick Basic White (Trees for Sale stamp set!) and die cut it with the Tree Lot Dies. I adhered this at an angle to the oval with dabs of liquid glue. I punched an ‘edge’ at each side of the card and added White Baker’s Twine from the Twine essentials Pack. I secured it in back with Seal+. I put dimensionals on the two white trees, liquid glue on the Soft Succulent tree and added them to the card. The oval also got dimensionals and was added over the twine.

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale + Tree Lot Dies

I used the same Boughs of Holly DSP as the front of the card – just the other side of it… to die cut the trailer. I also die cut a wreath in Basic White, a bow in Real Red and adhered those to the trailer. I added a piece of window sheet to indicate a window for the trailer door & eating space, and adhered that with glue dots. Once I knew where I wanted the trailer on the Basic White panel, I stamped the cute dog in Crumb Cake ink, then adhered the trailer over it with liquid glue. It looks as though the dog is barking for his ‘peeps’. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card – and that was it.

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale & Tree Lot Dies

For the envelope I kept it real simple… using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the flap. And that’s it. So let me just say, using the Tree Lot Dies is so much fun … creating a fun picture with die cuts. :O)

Now it’s time to head on over to the next blog. Enjoy the hop of the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop group. Products used to make this card are listed below the blog links.

Enjoy the hop!

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday Cards

Good Sunday morning to you! I have a couple of fairly quick and easy masculine birthday cards for you today using the Rings of Love DSP that is FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase! Let’s take a look.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card
Stampin' Up! Masculine cards

Isn’t this Rings of Love DSP gorgeous? It’s as though it’s watercolored in shades of blue with a bit of green too. In the card at left I have die cut three rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Dies to make this fairly clean & simple card. I DID emboss the Basic White panel using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. And… big note here, stamp on the panel PRIOR TO embossing! The birds are from Let’s Set Sail stamp set and stamped in Memento Black ink. The sentiment on the card front is from Wildflower Path stamp set. Steps… just in case I’ve confused you.

  • Die cut three rectangles using Stitched Rectangles Dies from Rings of Love DSP. Place on the Basic White panel to indicate where the birds should be stamped.
  • Stamp birds in Memento Black ink with the Let’s Set Sail stamp set on Basic White panel
  • Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink with the Wildflower Path stamp set on same panel
  • Emboss Basic White panel with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder
  • Place rectangles once more, adhere the two bottom ones, then put dimensional on third rectangle and attach
  • Add this panel to a Night of Navy piece just slightly larger
  • Add this completed panel to a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals ~ and the front is done.

For the second card, I used my Stamparatus to make the stamping quite easy. And… this idea came from a team mate, Akiko Sudano – thank you Akiko! The stamp set is Biggest Wish

  • With the DSP in the Stamparatus and knowing I wanted to stamp the ‘Happy” from bottom to top, I stamped that word in full strength Night of Navy ink.
  • I moved the Stamparatus plate to the next ‘grid’ and stamped again, this time re-inking, stamping off on a separate scrap and stamping on the DSP
  • I moved the plate one more ‘grid’ and did not re-ink but stamped immediately. This gave three gradations of the word
  • Remove that word, place ‘birthday’ on the DSP, bring the Stamparatus plate down to pick up stamp, ink with Parakeet Party ink.
  • Clean stamp, re-ink with VersaMark, stamp again. Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • Adhere this completed piece to a panel of Night of Navy card stock.
  • Cut a strip of Parakeet Party card stock and add to the Night of Navy panel. Wrap two lengths of 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine in Starry Sky around this strip, tie a know and secure in place under the knot with a glue dot.
  • Add three 2022- 2024 In Color Matte Dots in Starry Sky.
  • Put dimensionals on back of panel & add to Thick basic White card base ~ and this card front is done!

Card to left: stamp splotch using Garden Green ink, stamped off and Oceanfront stamp set. Stamp over it with the sentiment: Night of Navy ink and the Hello Beautiful stamp set… all on a Basic White panel. Add this to a Night of Navy card stock then to the inside of the card – finis!

Card to right: stamp sentiment in Night of navy ink using the Hello Beautiful stamp set. Add a strip of Rings of Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel. Adhere this to a Night of navy piece then to the inside of the card – finis!

As you can see, both envelopes were treated the same… a panel of Rings of Love DSP adhered to the flap. Each card is different, yet using the same DSP and I love that – it shows versatility! And, I can’t decide which card I prefer. Would love to know what you think!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Hello Card

Hello FRIENDS! Yesterday I shared a card using the Hello Harvest Bundle from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. Well, I couldn’t put it down ~ so bear with me while I share another card using more of the dies and stamps. My colors were Gray Granite, Pool Party & Soft Succulent. Let’s take a look…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle

What do you think? Does this look like a pumpkin? My hubby doesn’t think so 😩, but it does to me! Due to some experienced gardeners, pumpkins come in all colors these days. Mine began with Basic White, die cut with the Rustic Harvest Dies. I then used my Blending Brushes to add some color: a bit of Gray Granite ink, then Mango Melody ink – very lightly. These are two dies for the pumpkin body and another for the stem. I adhered all parts together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. My next step was to run a Basic White panel through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and add color to it with Blending Brushes and Gray Granite ink then Pool Party ink. Once I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to a slightly larger Pool Party card stock, added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Gray Granite card base. I pulled out this leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set and Soft Succulent ink. I stamped off, then with a Sponge Dauber added a bit of Gray Granite ink on some of the leaf tips, then stamped it on a Basic White scrap. I did this three times, varying where I added the Gray Granite ink with the Sponge Dauber, then die cut each one with the leaf die from the Rustic Harvest Dies. I really like this leaf! Next I stamped the cute flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Mango Melody. These three flowers were die cut with the flower die in the Rustic Harvest Dies. I die cut various tendrils from Evening Evergreen card stock. Now everything was stamped, colored, and die cut, I could put the card front pieces together.

I lay the pieces out first so as to get the layering right… and in this case, I started with the leaves, then the pumpkin, flowers and finally the tendrils. Adhere in place on the card front: leaves with liquid glue; pumpkin of course is on dimensionals; flowers… one is bent so it has glue while the other two are on dimensionals; tendrils are glued as well. Final touches… a double bow made by cutting the Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon in Soft Succulent, in half lengthwise, looping twice and securing with Simply Elegant Trim in Gold. I adhered this in place with a glue dot; and three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, inside

For the inside, stamp the Hello in Soft Succulent ink on the Basic White standard size panel. Of course this comes from the Hello Harvest stamp set! Then stamp that sweet floral bouquet in stamped off Pool Party ink. Adhere this to a Pool Party card stock piece cut just slightly larger, then into the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, card & envelope

For the envelope, again using the same leaf from the Hello Harvest stamp set, I stamped off with the Soft Succulent ink then used a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite ink to add ink to the leaf stamp on the tips, then stamped on the front of the envelope, reinked in the same way and stamped on the flap. The card is finis! I really really like this card! What do you think? Does the main image look like a pumpkin or not?

Products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other two catalogs available right now are the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Catalog which shows all the FREE items offered by Stampin’ Up! Jul 1-Aug 31.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks! It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a sketch challenge that’s extra good…

This card has a background of Timber 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel. It was adhered to the Thick Basic White card base. On top of that are a strip of Gingham Cottage DSP from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog on a piece of So Saffron card stock adhered in place. The Pear Pizzazz strip is adhered with liquid glue, with the die cut pieces attached with dimensionals. The die cut pieces are Rings of Love DSP, a free item during Sale-a-bration die cut with the largest Layering Circles die. Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? As I mentioned, it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase as long as supplies last… ok, I divert. The DSP is adhered to a scalloped Night of Navy piece, die cut with the largest of the scalloped Layering Circles dies. The Basic White strip is stamped in Night of Navy ink using Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added three Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems as a final touch.

What do we do with a sketch like this?it inspired me to create a couple of different cards… so totally different, yet both the same. Let’s take a peek at the first card.
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21.1

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I also stamped the leaf image in second generation Pear Pizzazz ink right over it – of course on a Basic White panel. I found on my desk this ‘frame’ die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and added it to the edge of the Basic White panel, then attached it to the inside of the card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21, inside

And now… the second card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2.2

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with Wonderful World DSP on a Basic White strip, adhered to the card base. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut yet another piece of the Wonderful World DSP. This is attached to a scalloped die cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies in scallop from Basic White. The same sentiment was used on the Basic White strip, but stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I used three Melon Mambo Solid Faceted Gems for a bit of glam.

For the inside…

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2, inside

I first stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Melon Mambo ink. The rose is Melon Mambo ink – second generation, but should have been at least third generation, as it covers up the sentiment.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 1
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 2

Both of these cards are beautiful ~ one is significantly softer while the other is more bold, but they tell the truth either way. Now, enjoy the hop as you move around the various blogs.

Stampin’ Up! Floating Gatefold Card

Such a fun card… and I used the Hippest Hippo bundle from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. These two items – stamp set & dies – are separate items that can be earned with purchases of $50 each. And remember, during Sale-a-bration, all these items are while supplies last. Once gone, g-o-n-e! Here’s this fun card.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo.1

This gal is one dancin’ ballerina – on a bucket :O) which is adhered with dimensionals. Pacific Point card base, Basic White layer, Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point. The hippo is colored with Blends: Light Smoky Slate & SU900; the skirt is Dark Highland Heather; Basic Black marker for the ballerina shoes, then die cut and added with dimensionals. The flowers are die cut from So Saffron and have Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels in the center and added with dabs of liquid glue. The sentiment is stamped in Memento ink on Basic White, then die cut with Stylish Shapes Dies and added with a dimensional.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo. inside

This is what makes this a ‘floating’ gatefold, the inside. These super cute hippos ‘float’ on the card with a definite 3 dimension. Coloring is the same as the hippo on the front. Additional blends: Dark Cherry Cobbler for the flower and Dark Shaded Spruce for the leaf. Additional die cuts are in Real Red and So Saffron. Don’t you just love the eye glasses?! I will be adding a Basic White panel to the back of the card for writing a note.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo. inside help
Floating Gatefold. Hippo. more inside help

These two photos indicate the ‘floating’ mechanism, the strip. They also show where the small squares should line up – no higher/ or lower than the inside Basic White liner. The floating mechanism or strip is first attached to the square, then to the card gatefold (you can see this in the second ‘more inside help’ photo), then to the inside panel. All stamping or additional die cuts are added to the inside panel AFTER the Hippo & mechanism have been added. This way you know exactly where the open spaces are and the card easily lays flat for these additions. Sorry… should have taken a photo of the card totally flat but didn’t think of it 🥴

Products to make this card are from the Sale-a-bration Catalog and therefore FREE when you place a $50 – $100 order. In other words, the stamp set is available with a $50 order and the dies are available with a $50 order, so place an order for $100 to get both FREE! These are available only while Sale-a-bration lasts (Jul – Aug 31 and only while supplies last!). If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other two catalogs available right now are the Jul-Dec 2022 Catalog and the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. When ordering, please also use my current host code: YM6ZTUJE. I offer my customers a free item from Stampin’ Up! item valued to $10 with your order of $50 and above. Click here to go my store. When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time. If you have questions just let me know. If you would like to be able to order products early from catalogs AND enjoy that 20% discount, join my team now… you may do that here. WooHoo! We have lots of fun and are a creative bunch that encourages & supports one another. Would love to have you. :O)

Star Special kicking off the new Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog

OK – DOUBLE STAR REWARDS ended a bit ago ~ I’m sorry you missed the deal. BUT – With the start of this new catalog I am beginning a STAR REWARDS program ~ YAY! This will continue from this day forth and below is the informations about those customer rewards.

Here’s how my STAR REWARDS work:

  • For each $50 that you order from my online store (before shipping & taxes) and when you add my current Host Code, you will earn 1 STAR Reward.  Orders of $49.99 or below DO NOT earn any rewards.
    • Example $50 = 1 STAR Reward, $100 = 2 STAR Rewards, $150 = 3 STAR Rewards etc.
  • When you have earned 8 STAR Rewards you will get a FREE product order valued up to $40.00, your choice, and mailed directly to you! Is that a deal or what???
  • You also earn my monthly Online Class Tutorial of exclusive projects when you place an order.
  • For any order $50 or more you will also receive 1 free gift from me valued up to $10.

And remember too, during this time of Sale-a-bration, for every $50 order from any catalog, you’ll earn free Sale-a-bration goodies from Stampin’ Up!
