Stampin’ Up! Cozy Red Smitten Mittens!

It’s HAWWWWP Day, y’all!!  Man – this week is flying by, isn’t it? Yikes!!

My card for today comes from the fertile mind of my friend Amy – we all got to make this (and one other that I’ll probably share with you next week – I’m stingy that way!) at our team meeting on Sunday.  It uses the uber-cute Smitten Mitten stamp set and the matching Many Mittens Framelits plus a lovely little sentiment from the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Take a look-see:


I know – ridiculously cute, isn’t it?  And it was easy to make with the bundled stamp and framelits!

We started with a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Using our Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, we colored the sentiment stamp from Hearts Come Home directly and stamped it in the bottom corner.  Then we ran the panel thru the Big Shot in the Winter Wonder TIEF (note that the folder was offset a little – placing the snowflake over on the side).

Then we matted the panel on a Garden Green panel with Fast Fuse.

To make the mittens, we cut two of the same detailed mitten dies from the Many Mittens Framelits in Real Red and two of the solid mittens in Whisper White.  Then we used Liquid Glue to adhere them together.  I adhered one to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the second one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

We made a small and a large holly leaf, using the stamps in the Smitten Mitten stamp set.  The fill in images are stamped-off-once Garden Green and the outline image in full strength Garden Green.  We also stamped the little berries images – the outline in full-strength Real Red and the fill in with stamped-off-once Real Red.

We cut everything out with their matching dies (handy little framelit set!!) and then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue to the mittens and popped the berries over with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  The bow is from Jute Twine – we wanted thicker than Linen Thread but not as thick as Jute Twine.  So…we pulled the three strands of the Jute Twine apart and used just one!  It’s adhered with a Glue Dot.

I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and the card front was done!

On the inside, we stamped a sentiment from Smitten Mittens in Real Red on a Whisper White panel, then added a couple of small mittens in Garden Green.

We Fast Fuse’d the panel into our Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another pair of Garden Green Smitten Mittens mittens on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How cute is this stamp set??  I love the cozy mittens that you can whip up with a couple of dies and some card stock, don’t you!?  And the Winter Wonder TIEF added just the perfect touch of texture.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

When your parents are watching a movie, you sometimes have to entertain yourself.

It’s the life of a dog, I suppose.

Fortunately, Finn is a pretty good self-player.

And he’s got tons of toys to help him out.

The bright green bumper was the toy du jour this day!  Check the “hands”.
