Snow is Glistening

Hi!  We had our first snowfall of the season the other day (had to shovel as well) so why not share a card or two made from the Snow Is Glistening set.  The Snowflake Showcase featuring these products ends on Nov 30 – so order today!

Snow is Glistening, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!For this card, I sponged the background using Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather inks.  The Snowflakes are die cut from Whisper White card stock and adhered with adhesive.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy on a scrap of Whisper White  and the ends punched with the Triple Banner Bunch.

I didn’t have any Night of Navy ribbon, so I colored the Whisper White with Silver trim using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends – so quick and easy to do!   The final touch is a Snowflake Trinket.

Here is another version of the card – but this time I used the Inset Embossing Technique after adhered the snowflakes:

Snow is Glistening, Inset Embossing, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A little hard to see the difference – here’s a closer view:

By running the card stock with the snowflakes attached through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder, it looks like the snowflakes are now part of the paper – not just on top of it.

You can see how I did this in this video:

Pretty cool, don’t you think?

Card stock dimensions for both cards:

  • Whisper White Thick Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy Mat – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Image Panel – 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White Sentiment – 3 3/4″ x 1″

Anyway – don’t delay in getting your Snowflake Showcase products – (the Velvet Paper in this flyer is already sold out – but all the other goodies are still available! )

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.

Christmas, Holly, Blended Seasons, Watercoloring, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This is a Christmas version of the Birthday card I featured a few weeks ago.   The colors for his card are Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  The Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen were used to color the holly and hte bell.    While it is difficult to see in the picture, I did use the Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the bell and berries in the holly.   Here is a view of the back of the card:

This is where you’d write your message.

A Little Treat Pouch

Hi!  Today I have a little treat pouch, also called a self-closing bag, for you!  This is another of the gifts that we made at the Gifts class earlier this month.

Treat Pouch, 3D, Gift, Merry Little Labels, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This features the Merry Little Label bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  This bundle, and the stamp set, are retiring on Jan 2nd.  If you haven’t gotten yours yet, just click on the product below to be taken to my store so you can order it before it is gone.

I used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog for my pouch.  The directions to make this are as follows:

Large Box:  (fits 5 Lindt Truffles)

Designer Series Paper 6 x 8 1/2″

  1. Score at 1″ and 5″ on the 6″ side.
  2. Score at 4″ and 8″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  3. Cut off the 1/2″ x 1″ corners and angle cut the center tab.
  4. Cut at 4″ score line to the 1″ score lines on the top and bottom.
  5. Cut on one side only (tab will be on your right) at 2″ and 6″ to the 1″ score line”
  6. Place the paper on top of the pierce mat.
  7. Using a stylus and a ruler, score a diagonal line from the left hand side of the paper at the 5″ score line to the 2″ cut line on top and from the 2″ cut line  to the 4″ cut line on the bottom.
  8. Then make diagonal scores from the bottom 4″ cut line to the top 6″ cut line and from the top 6″ cut line to the bottom 8″ score line (right edge  by tab).
  9. See picture below – the score lines are dotted, the cut lines are solid.
  10. Fold on all score lines.
  11. Use Tear and Tape on the tab and fold on 4″ score line to adhere the tab in place.
  12. Use tear and tape on two opposite tabs to form the bottom of the box.
  13. Decorate as desired.

Once you have made a few, they go pretty quick and are a great little treat for the postman, neighbor, co-worker or friend.   If you are hosting Christmas dinner, you could even make one for each place setting.

A Snowman Treat

Hi!  Today I have an adorable little snowman to share with you.  We will be making these at tomorrow night’s Gifts Class!  I am super excited for my last class of the year!

Christmas, Gift Bag, Snowman, Gift Bag Punch Board, Punches, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Isn’t he just adorable?  The box  is made with the Thick Whisper White card stock and the Gift Bag punch board.  I did a small size – and started with a 4 1/4″ x 10″ piece and followed the directions on the punch board for making the small board.  I did not punch the holes – as  I was not planning on adding handles.

The mouth is punched from the Cookie Cutter builder punch and eyes are punched with the 1/2″ circle punches.  The nose was hand cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  A White Chalk Marker was used for the eyes.

The hat itself uses two retired punches.  The holly on the hat is created with the Holly Builder punch.  Watercolor pencils were used to draw the lines on the leaves and on the nose.  A piece of Real Red cardstock was used for the band on the hat.

Here are the contents in the bag:

Gifts, Christmas, Treat Holder, Gift Bag Punch Board, Punches, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A pack of tissues, a lip balm and a mini hand sanitizer.   This would make a cute gift for coworkers and neighbors or even kids.  They are pretty quick to make as well.   You could also switch out the personal care items and fill with chocolates or a few coffee pods and a gift card.

If you don’t have the punches for the face, you could stamp a face using the Work of Art stamp set similar to what is seen on this card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!  Leave a comment if you did!  I’d love to hear from you!

Time for A Tag

Hi!  Today I have a few little tags to share with you using the Merry Little Labels set from the Holiday Catalog.

Tags, CHristmas, Merry Labels, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I love this stamp set and am a little sad it isn’t carrying over. If you don’t ahve it yet, just click on the bundle in the supply list to get yours before it is gone!

It so easy to make such fun tags to personalize your Christmas gifts this year.  I went simple with my tags – I stamped three of the sentiments in Basic Black Archival ink – two on Crumb Cake card stock and one on Whisper White card stock.  The For/From tag, I used markers to color the stamp so that the holly would give a little color.   I used the coordinating Label Punch (which is carrying over) to punch out the tags.   I cut the small gold and silver doilies in half – so one doily for 2 tags and tucked this to the left of the tag.  These were then mounted on scraps of Designer Series Paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch for the top of this layer.  I also cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock (easiest to see it peeking out behind the just For You tag) the same size as the Designer Series Paper and punched out with Scalloped Tag topper.   This allows you to write a little message – or who the gift is for on the inside of the tag.

The tags are tied together with the gorgeous Basic Black shimmer ribbon and finished off with the silver and gold metallic thread.

A little bit county, a little bit elegant, right?

Winter Elegance

Hi!  How are you?  I hope doing well!  Today I have a card for you that I just love how it looks!

Winter Elegance!  I a little gold foil and gold embossing and you have a very elegant card!

This card features the Card Front Builder Dies and the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.  The Card Front Builder dies  are on the retirement list for the Holiday Catalog.  If you haven’t gotten them yet, order soon!!  The items on the retirement list are while supplies last – and these will go quickly!

I used the dies to die cut the trees from my Whisper White panel.  I then ran the panel without the trees through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder to make it look like it was snowing.  I mounted the Whisper White embossed panel on a piece of Gold Foil.  I then attached the die cut trees using dimensionals and off set just a little bit so the foil layer could  be seen.   The deer was die cut from Early Espresso card stock and attached with mini dimensionals on his legs.

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and embossed with Gold Embossing powder.

While there are a few more steps to this card, it would still be easy to mass produce.  Here are the card stock dimensions if you would like to make your own:

  • Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″
  • Gold Foil – 3 5/8″ x 3 3/8″
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2″ x 3 1/4″

What do you think?  Elegant or not enough?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

As mentioned above, the retiring list for the Holiday Catalog has been released.  You will find this in my Stampin’ Up! website here.

It’s A Holly Christmas!

Hi!  Back today with another Christmas Card!

For this one, I used the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  I stamped the holly in Memento Black Ink and used the new Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive to color the leaves.  These markers are fun to play with!  The berries and Sentiment are stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

I used the Layering Circles and coordinating Stitched Shapes for the stamped image and Cherry Cobbler mat.  Behind the panel are two strips of Design Series Paper – the Cherry Cobbler piece from the Be Merry pack, and the Old Olive from the

I kept the card Clean and Simple (CAS) to make it easy to mass produce.
