Sweet Peppermint Kisses …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

One of the the cutest suites in the Mini Catalog is our Gingerbread & Peppermint. This card is “not” one of the retreat cards, but I wanted to share this cutie as it highlights the Designer Series paper from the Stampin’ Up! Aug. – Dec. Mini Catalog

This simple layout is sweet when you need to create many Christmas cards and all of those candies brighten anyone’s day. An Old Olive base, a layer of Cherry Cobbler and then the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series paper created our card front.

The candies were created with the coordinating dies and are done in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive …

I had to add the Wink of Stella to my candies to make them glisten. There are several circle dies and candy tops that will help you create some needed depth and texture to the card.

The greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Basic White with a layer of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive behind it. I did not pop it up … it is adhered directly to the card front…. the candies are popped up!

Don’t you just love a quick -n- easy cards … especially when you have a BIG Christmas card list. The quicker you get done, the more Hot Chocolate you can enjoy … while your stamping!

Thank you for dropping in and checking out my blog. Enjoy your day~

TIPS: When using Embossing Paste, don’t worry about perfection. Having varying depths and textures adds to the overall effect. Clean up tools right after using, as the paste dries quickly, and is much easier to clean off the masks and tools while wet. Clean masks and tools with tepid running water and mild liquid dish soap. A soft damp cloth can also be used, but be careful not to bend edges of detailed mask images.

Sending Thanks / Guest Stamper: Rita K.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a beautiful card I received from my sister Rita and to wish you a Wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

Rita used the Simply Elegant designer paper for her slim line card. She also used; very vanilla and basic gray card-stock, rectangle stitched dyes, seasonal layers thinlets, holiday rhinestone basic jewels, and curvy verses stamp set.

There is nothing better than receiving a beautiful card in the mail, unless you are the one creating and sending it… you know it’s going to make someone’s day. I think many of us will be working on cards soon (unless you’re sending them out this weekend)!

I would love to wish all of you a very safe and wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with your friends and family.

Thank you so very much for stopping by to share a moment with me on this Thanksgiving day.

Enjoy your day ~

Thinking of You Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today, we’re going back to nature with the Beauty of Friendship bundle. This is one of my favorites because it is so versatile for any occasion, male or female … the possibilities are endless!

The beautiful color pallet and thick borders just seem to be a bit more masculine than what I’ve been sharing lately. I simply followed the colors in the beautiful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper. Let me share some information with you …

Card Dimensions ….

  • Night of Navy Card base is cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper is cut 5 1/4″ x 4″. 
  • Night of Navy for the die cut frame
  • Early Espresso for the die cut tree

I used the 3rd and 5th dies from the Stitched Rectangle dies (I count from the center of the dies to the outside. Align them carefully by centering the smaller one inside the larger die, this will ensure your frame has equal sides.

While you are die cutting, use the small tree from the Beauty of Friendship bundle. The tree will be attached to the frame with our Glue Dots …

I used a greeting from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. Because the “Thinking of You” stamp has more to the greeting, I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to color only the part of the verse I wanted and then die cut it with the rectangle die included in the Beauty of Friendship bundle.

I used glue dots to attach the greeting over the tree and slightly touching the frame. Then I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to the entire frame and attached it to the front of my card.

I really like the way the frame highlights this beautiful paper, yet allows the tree and greeting to stand out as well. I guess I would end up saying this could be a gender neutral card!!

Thank you for checking out my blog post today. Hope your day is a good one.

A Whimsy & Wonder Slimline Tutorial

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Add a bit of quirky charm to your holidays this year with the Whimsy & Wonder Suite! The non-traditional colors in this suite add to the whimsical fun. The iridescent accents of the Whimsy and Wonder 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating iridescent Wonderful Snowflakes add a magical shimmer to your projects. The wonder of it all is that with the switch of colors you can also create an elegant and traditionally look with these stamps and dies.

Let’s create some Christmas cheer with this unique slim card! Ribbon, Metallic Adhesive Dots, Velvet Paper and Wink of Stella add that extra bit of texture and sparkle that really make this card shine!

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog - WHIMSY & WONDER SUITE

INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Cut Mossy Meadow cardstock to 7″ x 6″. Score at 3-1/2″ along the 7″ side. Fold to create a slim 3-1/2″ x 6″ card. Cut Basic White cardstock to 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ and adhere inside card for a writing area.

2) Cut Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper to 3″ x 3″ (holly leaf pattern) and 3-3/8″ x 2-1/2″ (Blushing Bide with iridescent snowflakes). Adhere layers to card with Stampin’ SEAL.

3) Stamp sketch tree image on scrap Snowy White Velvet Sheets with Blushing Bride ink. Stamp greeting on Shimmery White cardstock with Misty Moonlight ink. Allow ink to dry.

4) Cut 2″ x 4″ scraps of Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink cardstock. Paint each with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and set aside to dry.

5) Die cut greeting with Layering Circles Die that is about 1-5/8″ and die cut scrap Misty Moonlight cardstock with the scallop Layering Circle Die that is slightly larger.

6) Die cut the stamped tree with coordinating die, Old Olive with the open tree die, and Mint Macaron diamond patterned Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Design Series Paper with the tallest tree die.

7) Die cut the zig-zag garland from Shimmery White cardstock. Die cut the tiny ornaments and stars from the Wink of Stella painted Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink cardstock.

8) Layer Old Olive tree onto card front and adhere with Stampin’ Seal. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the zig-zag garland to the largest tree. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ SEAL. Add Velvet stamped tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

9) Add a couple strips of Stampin’ SEAL to the card front under where the circle greeting will go. Cut a 8″ piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon. Cut one end straight across. Pull threads to unravel the entire ribbon. The long threads that make the length of the ribbon will remain. Wrap the threads loosely around several fingers and press into the Stampin’ SEAL. Don’t worry about being perfect, a bit random and unraveled lo makes this look the best!

10) Layer circles with Stampin’ SEAL and adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

11) Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere stars and ornaments to trees. Add several of the gold Brushed Metallic Adessive Dots around the card.


OPTIONAL: Create a coordinating envelope using a 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ piece of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. Place the card diagonally on the center of the paper. Fold in the side edges (3-1/2″ edges of card). Fold up the bottom long edge and use Stampin’ SEAL or Stampin’ SEAL+ to adhere the bottom flap to the side flaps (don’t adhere to the card!). Add Stampin’ SEAL to the edge of the remaining flap and seal closed. Add adhesive labels for adding an address if mailing.

MAIN SHOT

TIPS: Use the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool (#144107) to pick up and hold small die cut pieces (like the stars and ornaments) while you add a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to place them on your project.

Don’t you just love the Whimsy & Wonder suite?! The designer paper is one of my favorites in the Holiday Mini catalog.

Enjoy the tutorial and have a beautiful day ~

Simply Sunday: Beauty of the Earth Card Parade

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a treat for you today … a simple yet beautiful Slim Line card and a parade of other cards that were created from the amazing Beauty of the Earth Suite. I will also be sharing some fun techniques on these cards so, grab a cup of coffee and sit back with me while we go through these creative gems!

First up is my Slimline cards, this card fits in a business size envelope … I’m using two different patterns from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and joined them together with the pretty Gold Fine Art Ribbon; it has a touch of sparkle, so I had to add the Genial Gems to keep the sparkle going.

The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set / bundle. I chose the Cinnamon Cider as a mat and Merry Merlot as my card base … they pull those colors out of the designer paper. I find this suite / bundle very gender neutral … who wouldn’t love these cards!

My second card I’m using the same pattern of the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper and the Beautiful Trees dies. Another simple card when using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set included in the bundle.

Ready to see another card using the same paper? The amazing thing is that each one looks sooo different! I used a landscape layout verses the portrait as I did on the first two cards and created this unique card. I also used Night of Navy on this card to pull out the blue in the designer paper.

I created the frame with the Stitched Rectangle Dies … I love this look, it’s new and fresh and highlights the designer paper. I added the tree and greeting from the bundle …

Now lets change things up a little by using a different pattern from our Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and a fun technique … the “Split Card Technique”. I’m using Old Olive and Early Espresso to coordinate with my designer paper. You can watch the video to see how to create this card yourself by CLICKING HERE!

Yesterday I shared the next card with you … the card base is Early Espresso and so is the tree itself, it made the Misty Moonlight designer paper from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper really pop, and when I added the leaves to the trees … WOW! The leaves on the bottom are just another die cut of the top … just cut up into smaller pieces to lay upon the ground. So pretty!

The last card I have to share with you, used the same watercolor background paper but I’m changing up the seasons. Once the leaves are gone … well, winter comes next, and it makes for the perfect Christmas card …

I just love this card and I used the Chalk pen and Wink of Stella to add snow to my tree! How fun is that! I just wanted to show you that this is not just another tree set, but a bundle / or suite that can be used for any season … or any reason!!

Thank you for joining me this Sunday for my card parade, I hope you enjoyed the many styles of cards. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Stop back tomorrow as I have another card that you’ll enjoy!!

Quick -n- Easy Gift Boxes: featuring Time of Giving Bundle!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my Facebook LIVE replay for you. I created two cute little Gift Boxes featuring the Time of Giving Bundle … You’ll be surprised at how easy this is to make! Formally know as the 2-4-6-8 Boxes … I’ve done a little adjusting to make the box a little bigger so it could hold more goodies!!

And what would you put into these little cuties? Well … candy works great, or cookies!! But you could also put in little toys for a child, or how about a get well kit with hand sanitizer, tissues, maybe some tea … you could have so much fun with this.

Speaking of tea … grab a cup or some coffee and join me for the replay of my LIVE last night.

I have the dimensions for you so you can make some of these little cuties yourself! Let’s begin ….

  1. Start with an 11″ x 5-1/2″ piece of cardstock (on sale thru Nov.18th, 2021)
  2. On the 11″ lenght; Score at 2″ … 5″ … 7″ and 10″. Cut 1/2″ off end if prefered.
  3. Turn cardstock 90 degrees and on the 5-1/2″ length; score at 1-1/2″.
  4. Cut on score lines as shown in the video
  5. Designer Series Paper: 2 pieces: 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and 2 pieces: 2-3/4/” x 3-3/4″
  6. Attach the designer paper onto box … except the front piece which you will cut to create window.
  7. Use the smaller of the two dies and cut through both the designer paper and cardstock. Make sure it is aligned.
  8. Remover designer paper and cut with larger of the two dies.
  9. Attach window sheet … either onto inside of box or between the box and designer paper
  10. Glue side flap (1/2″) and then bottom flaps as shown in video.

The first box was created with Shaded Spruce cardstock and the Tidings of Christmas Designer paper. The greeting comes from the Time of Giving Bundle and is stamped in Real Red … the box is embellished with the Red Rhinestones.

I used the Layering Oval dies to create window on both of the boxes …

The second box was created with Cajun Craze cardstock and the Pattern Party Designer Series paper from our exclusive Hostess Rewards. Greeting comes from the Time of Giving Bundle and is stamped with Cajun Craze!

I embellished this box using the die cut leaves from the bundle and the stunning Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper. They are even cuter close up.

I hope I have inspired you to try these little cuties … it really is so simple to make, and you can fill it with anything you wish. A perfect gift for a friend, a co-worker, a child, someone who’s sick or anyone who you want to Thank you too.

Guest Stamper: Kathie with Peaceful Deer …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I want to share some of the amazing “Swap Cards” that were presented at my Holiday Stamping Retreat last weekend. The swap is held for our attendee’s just for fun (and a $30 Gift Certificate) to the winner. These ladies never fail to impress … love to see the different styles, and everyone goes home with even more cards!!

Our first Guest Stamper is Kathie D. who highlights the Peaceful Deer Bundle. Kathie did a beautiful job showcasing the both the stamp set and the punch.

Let’s begin with the designer paper which was FREE during our Sale-a-bration period. I love the Kathie stamped directly onto the designer paper … it gives the card visual depth.

Creating more depth and texture were the stamped and punched images … even the greeting which was die cut, has the stitched look for additional texture. Let’s not forget the pop of color from not only the tree’s but the mat behind the designer paper.

Kathie’s card not only makes a beautiful Christmas card but would make a perfect Birthday card as well.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Sweet Strawberry: Just For You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another cute card from Stampin’ Up! using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle …. I know we are getting our first snowfall, but I think there is something about Strawberries that make them timeless.

You will notice that we are using the “same” supplies as we did yesterday so you can create different looks with your same investment!

Here are the step by step instructions for the card …

1. Create tone on tone background on Poppy Parade card base (8-1/2” x 5-1/2”; 21 x 14.9 cm) by stamping the strawberry outline image in Poppy Parade ink. Randomly fill in some of the strawberries using the two-step stamp image.

2. On the 2″ x 6″ (5.1 x 15.2 cm) Basic White Cardstock, two-step stamp one strawberry in Crumb Cake ink and two strawberries in Poppy Parade ink. Stamp the outline in full saturation of ink and stamp off the filler image to create shading.

3. Stamp the stem images in Mint Macaron ink on the 2-3/4″ x 2″ (7 x 5.1 cm) Basic White Cardstock. Stamp three stems.

4. Punch out the berry and stem images using the Strawberry Builder Punch.

5. Stamp the greeting in Crumb Cake ink on the 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ (5.7 x 8.9 cm) Basic White Cardstock. Adhere to your card base.

6. Adhere the strawberries to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals, arranging them to overlap slightly. Adhere the stems to the strawberries.

7. Add Gilded Gems

How cute and simple is this card. So easy to recreate and you are using the same supplies as you did on the card showcased yesterday. Both cards are great to send to your friends.

Thank you for joining me on this Sunday.
