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! )

Hello Friend

How are you today?  I am very excited because the Snowflake Showcase is here!!  That’s right!  You can now order the products available in the Snowflake Showcase!  I debuted the Happiness Surrounds stamp set on Tuesday during the Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live.

Hello, Firendship, Happiness Surrounds, Snowflake Showcase, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Love how this card turned out!  It is so pretty!  I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and coordinating dies to create this card.   My color palette is Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

Here is the video showing this card:

Here are the products available in the Snowflake Showcase.  I’ll be playing with the Snow is Glistening set on next week’s Tuesday with Teresa.

You’ll find all these products in my on-line store.    My goal is to sell 10 of the stamp sets and dies (they are not bundled – but the dies do coordinate with both stamp sets) in 10 days! Shop here to help me reach my goal!   Big goal – but you will love these stamps and dies and the Happiness Surrounds can be used year round!

A Cart of Pumpkins

Hi!  What did you think of yesterday’s Thanksgiving Theme Blog Hop?  I hope you had fun checking out all the great projects!   Today I am continuing on with fall cards – this one featuring the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Fall, Pumpkins, Pleasant Pheasants, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018HolidayCatalog

I actually demonstrated how to make this card on Tuesday’s Facebook Live – Tuesday with Teresa.  Here’s the video – it is the second card.

The measurements for each of the pieces:

Base: Thick Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half.

Early Espresso: 5 5/16 x 4 1/16″

Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

Early Espresso:  3 3/16″ x 4 3/16″

Whisper White: 3″ x 4″

The image was colored using ink pads and a blender pen.  The background was done using the Saran Wrap technique.  (Hard to see in the picture – better view in the video).

On the original card, I also distressed the edges of the stamped panel with my fingernail – but forgot to do that in the video.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!  Have a wonderful day!

Bountiful Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Group Thanksgiving Blog Hop!  We have a bounty of projects for you today!

My card features the sentiment from the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in the Holiday catalog.

Fall, Thanksgiving, Blog Hop, Pleasant Pheasants, Rooted In Nature, Colorful Seasons, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop

I had so much fun making this card using a variety of techniques for the background.  I first sponged So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then, I created a color palette for the Baby Wipe technique using Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.  I used this palette to stamp my leaves.  Love the fall colors that this technique creates! The leaves are from the Colorful Seasons and Rooted In Nature stamp sets.

The sentiment is from the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set found in the Holiday Catalog.  Such a lovely saying for Thanksgiving.  This was stamped in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla then die cut with the Layering Squares dies.  The mat behind it is die cut with a coordinating Stitched Shapes square from Early Espresso.

The background panel is matted on an Early Espresso piece of card stock.

To finish off the card, I made a bow from the Copper ribbon and  attached using a glue dot.  A leaf trinket is attached to the bow.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.

Our winner from last month’s blog hop is:

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:

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

In case you missed it, the dimensions for the layers and a video making the Blueberry Bushel version, can be found in this post.

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!
