Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer – Into the Winter Woods

Good morning, y’all – and Happy Saturday!

I was honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer on the Just Us Girls challenge for the month of January, so…you’ll be seeing a post from me on Saturday’s REALLY EARLY in the morning!  You can catch my Facebook video sneak peek in the post that will come around 7!

I pulled out the carrying-over Snowman Season and the Winter Woods bundle from the Annual Catalog for today’s wintery Thank You card.  Take a look-see:

Can you guess our Theme?

I hope my card will inspire you to get crafty and come on over to play with the Just Us Girls challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

I started with some See a Silhouette DSP and, with the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set (this is carrying over – whoo-hoo!!), I stamped all over the panel using Versamark Ink.

I sprinkled the DSP with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted it on Pacific Point card stock.

Using the Into the Woods Dies, I cut three solid trees from Vellum card stock and three of the more detailed trees from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vellum trees to the card front – being sure to only use it where I knew the top layer of trees would hide the glue.

The Sparkle Glimmer Trees are popped on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals – cut small enough to remain hidden.

For the sentiment, I cut four of the Thank You Die cuts in Pacific Point and one in Whisper White.  Then I layered them up, adhering them all together with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut sentiment atop the trees.  A few Coastal Cabana gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I used Smoky Slate – stamped off once – to stamp the big tree from the Winter Woods stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  Some Snowman Season snowflakes in stamped-off-once Pool Party swirl around the tree.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Basic Black card base, and to adhere the card front, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Smoky Slate Winter Woods tree and Pool Party Snowman Season snowflakes on the front…

…and more of the See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Christmas is past but that means it’s thank you card season!  I love the Thank You die and it’s pretty darned stunning atop the sparkly Into the Woods trees.  Snowman Season and Winter Woods both lend their images to this wintery thank you card! I hope you like!






Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Rewards page for full details.

**Please note: Due to an increased number of orders that I’ve recently been receiving that have been in the $10-$20 range, I’ve had to change my host code reward to include only orders of $50+.  Unfortunately, it’s not fair to those who are ordering $50+ and there are not enough host $$ generated from orders under $50 to cover the $10 gifts.  Therefore, I won’t be able to continue to offer that bonus on every order.  Thanks for your understanding!
