Couldn’t Resist

I hope you don’t mind!  But after the last wreath card using Wishing You Well, I couldn’t resist making a Christmas version.  So here it is!

Christmas, Wishing You Well, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Buffalo Check

What do you think?  I did make a few changes – for the Buffalo Check background, I used  a Mossy Meadow marker and a ruler and added lines in between the check pattern.  I also went with three colors instead of just two – I did try using just all Real Red and it just was too much.  So, I toned it down by adding in Mossy Meadow as my base card stock, in the check pattern and for the bow.

I did use Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter on the bow and berries – it just adds something special to the card.  Here’s a better view:

This truly is a beautiful set that will enhance any stampers stash.  You can purchase your own set here.

And What About…

the wreath?  Today’s card is the second one I shared using the Wishing You Well stamp set and is the wreath from that set.

Thinking of You, Wreath, Wishing You Well, Stampin' Up!, SU! #2018HolidayCatalog

I actually paired this with a few other stamp sets – can you identify them all?

The background features the new Buffalo Check in the Holiday Catalog – I think it is perfect and a must have for everyone!  The berries on the wreath are from the Banners for You set and the sentiment is from Sheltering Tree.  I love how we can use our long time friends from our collection and pair them with new sets to make gorgeous cards!  Not sure I captured it well in this picture, but I did use the Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the bow and berries – oh so pretty!

Here are the dimensions for each of the layers:

Base: Blueberry Bushel – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.

Whisper White: 3 3/16″ x 5 6/16″ (behind Buffalo Check),  3″ x 4″ for wreath

Buffalo Check: Crumb Cake – 3″ x 5 3/16″

Blueberry Bushel Mat: 3 3/16″ x 4 3/16″ (behind the wreath)

In case you missed it, this is the second card demonstrated in this video:

Wouldn’t this make a great Christmas Card?  Switch out the Blueberry Bushel for Real Red or Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment and there you go!  Love the versatility of the Wishing You Well stamp set!

A Little Bouquet

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  Today I have a little bouquet of flowers for you featuring the Wishing You Well stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Just a Note, Flowers, Wishing You Well, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018HolidayCatalog

I am still in a Fall frame of mind and used the colors of fall for my palette for my card.  I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.   The card has a fun front look as I cut out  a section of the front so you can see the inside panel of the card.  Here are the dimensions:

Base – 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score at 5 1/2″.  Cut at 2″ from the score line for the top part of the front.   From the part cut off, cut 2″ piece for the bottom.

Designer Series Paper:  1 3/4″ x 4″ – need 2 pieces

Flower panel: Whisper White – 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  Cajun Craze Mat – 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.

Here is the video with a demonstration on making this card:

It is a new Stampin’ Up! year and this year I am working hard to earn the trip to Maui!

Breathe in Fall

Hi!  Today I have a card for you that I demonstrated at last week’s Tuesday with Teresa.  I had a hard time coming up with a focal image prior to going live that night – but finally came up with this card:

Fall, Rooted in Nature, Direct to Paper, FB Live, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I used the direct to paper technique to create my background.  Then used markers to color the tree on the stamp before stamping on my paper.  I am very happy with the outcome.  I may add some birds in the sky – it was suggested during the live and I do like the idea.

Here’s the video if you wish to see how I made the card:

I’d love to know what you think!

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop!  You are sure to find tons of inspiration for Halloween Fright!

My project today is this adorable mini milk carton!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Mini Milk Carton, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampitbloghop

Isn’t it adorable?  I love the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper – perfect for all your Halloween crafting!  In this project, I’ve paired the paper with the Seasonal Chums set in the Annual Catalog – don’t you love when you can use new products with existing ones already in your collection?

To make the Mini Milk Carton, you need a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

  • Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.
  • Score on the 5 1/2″ side at 1 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 5″.
  • Along the 5″ score line, make a tick mark at 1″ and 5″ along the 8 1/4″ side.
  • Use a ruler and a stylus to score diagonal lines between the 5″ and 3 1/2″ score lines from the 1″ tick mark to the lower left corner at the 3 1/2″ score line and the lower right corner at the 3 1/2″ score line.
  • Repeat above step for the 5″ tick mark.    See picture for clarity: (Dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines)

  • Cut off the lower right corner that is 1/4″ by 1 1/2″.  (Already removed in picture)
  • Create angle cuts on the top and bottom of the remaining part of the tab.
  • Cut up from the bottom to the 1 1/2″ score line at 2″, 4″ and 6″.
  • Fold on all score lines.
  • Place Tear & Tape along the tab and close the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom.
  • Decorate as desired and use Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread or a Galvanized Clip to close the top of the box.

For the decorations, I used the pumpkins from Seasonal Chums.  It is stamped in Jet Black StaZon on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The stem is colored in Crumb Cake, the leaves in Old Olive and the face in Basic Black.

Here’s a closer view of the front and back:

Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop     Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop

On the sides, I die cut bats using the coordinating Seasonal Tag Framelits from Basic Black card stock and colored with Clear Wink of Stella:

Halloween, Seasonal Chums, Mini Milk Carton, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghopI used one of the new Galvanized Clips to keep the top closed after filling with Halloween Treats such as Dove Milk Chocolate Caramels and Reese’s Peanutbutter Ghosts.   The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  Black solid Baker’s Twine ties the tag to the clip.

I just love how this turned out and will be making a few more to give out to family, friends and co-workers.
