Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic

I have a clean & simple card for you today using the Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic stamp stamp set. It begins with a Basic White panel that I placed on my Scoring Tool and scored from the 3/4″ mark to the 1 3/4″. When using the Scoring Tool, you are leaving an indentation. So if the idea is to have the area raised, which I did, once finished scoring, simply turn the panel over and there it is! I have seen several cards with scoring similar to this on Pinterest and simply HAD to give it a try. There has been no name so I can’t give credit. Here is my completed card.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic.1

Can you see the scored lines? Fun, right?! After scoring, I pulled out the Christmas Banners Dies and Garden Green card stock and die cut two pine fronds. I then got Real Red and Early Espresso and die cut a stem with berries. I’m not sure sure you can see it very well, but I added the berries to the stem and slipped it between the two pine fronds, adhering all three together with liquid glue, then to the card front. I think you can see the red berries peeking through in the photo above :O) I made a bow with the 3/8″ Real Red Ribbon from the Combo Pack, then folded over a length to add more ‘tails’ to the bow. These I adhered with glue dots to the pine bundle. I then stamped the Merry Christmas with Memento ink. I know, this seems out of sequence, but I wanted the placement of the sentiment in the right spot. The sentiment comes from Mistletoe Magic stamp set and it’s lengthy. I taped one word, inked, removed the tape and stamped – the Merry first, then followed the same procedure with the word Christmas. I added three dots of Pearlized Enamel Effects in Real Red and set the card aside to dry.

Stampin' Up! Mistletoe Magic.2

I stamped this beautiful mistletoe image from Mistletoe Magic in Memento ink on a Basic White panel, then colored it, first with Cherry Cobbler Blends for the berries, then Garden Green reinker & a Water Painter for the leaves. I put just one drop of reinker in the lid of a Garden Green ink pad, then one drop of water to the reinker drop, then pained the color to the paper. Because this is not watercolor paper or Shimmer paper, it’s important not to add water to the paper itself, just the ink color. And it works well that way. I adhered this to the inside of Thick Basic White card base, then added the card front to the front of this same Thick Basic White. I did have to be careful as the little Pearlized Enamel Effects were not quite dry. I usually let them dry for a good hour or two.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic.3

I kept the envelope very simple by stamping the image from Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Memento ink to both the envelope front & the flap as well, but chose not to color it.It lets the card be the focus :O) I also did some scoring with the Scoring Tool on the envelope flap. It’s hard to see in the photo but it’s on the left end. I love how this turned out and I’m thinking how to use the scoring as an effect on future cards.

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Support

Good morning, good morning. I’ve an encouragement card for you today. A friend of mine has had some health issues for a bit & just needs a ‘pick-me-up’, so I send cards every now & then to let her know she’s in my prayers and not forgotten in her pain. I’ve used Perched In A Tree stamp set with it’s coordinating Aspen Tree Dies – one of my favs.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree.1

I’ve tried coloring this sweet bird similar to a chickadee – not sure that worked so that’s why I’m telling you :O). I used Watercolor Pencils after stamping with Memento ink on a Basic White scrap: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral , Whisper White and then blended with a Blender Pen to smooth the lines. It was then die cut with the appropriate die from the Aspen Trees Dies. My next step was to die cut several of these gorgeous leaves from the Aspen Trees Dies: Brushed Metallic paper & Copper Foil Sheets. I used a circle on my desk die cut for another project to create the sun/ moon. I used a Blending Brush with So Saffron ink then Mango Melody ink around the edges. It isn’t real bright cuz it’s on Gray Granite card stock. I used another Blending Brush to add some Balmy Blue ink all over, making it look like sky. It’s very subtle, but definitely there in person. I stamped the tree branch in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment in Memento ink – both from the Perched in a Tree stamp set. The bird was adhered over the branch with dimensionals, then the leaves added with liquid glue. The center leaf is adhered with liquid glue at the stem and a dimensional on its leaf tip for more depth. This panel was added to a Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using Perched In A Tree stamp set, then used a Blending Brush to add a frame of color to the Basic White panel. I included the large die cut leaf from the Aspen Trees Dies with liquid glue. This leaf was die cut from Copper Foil Sheets. The panel was added to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.3

For the envelope, stamp the branch again with Soft Suede ink on the front. Add a strip of Basic Gray that has been run through the Timber 3D embossing folder to the flap, trim to fit. This could so easily be a masculine card, and I don’t have many of those. However, as I mentioned earlier, this for a woman friend this time.

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!

This is a blog hop, remember? So take a few moments and visit the circuit of ‘hoppers’, see what fabulous ideas there are. Click the ‘next’ button or click on a name to take you along. Enjoy…

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.

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.

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!
Stampin' Up! Masculine card, inside
Stampin' Up! Masculine Card, inside

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!
