Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees & Wonder Top-Fold Easel Card

Good Sunday morning, y’all – from the North GA mountain!  It’s the last day of our retreat – hard to believe.  It takes SO long to get here and then –BLINK– it’s over!  We’ve had such a good time I’m already looking ahead to a team retreat NEXT year here, too!  Maybe one of you reading this will join us! 🙂

We’ve done a bunch of great shoebox projects – and they’re all wunnermus!  I’ll most likely be sharing them over the next few days.  But today, I want to show you the project that I brought for everyone!  It uses one of my fave sets/suites in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – the Whimsical Christmas stamp set with it bundled Christmas Trees dies.  And the gorgeous – totally non-traditional-Christmas colored! – Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  AND – it’s one of my favorite fun folds, too!  Take a look-see:

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock scored at 5 1/2″, 6 3/4″ and 8 7/8″ along the long-side.  I folded the 5 1/2” score as a valley (like a regular card). Then folded the 6 3/4” score the opposite direction. Finally – I folded the 8 7/8″ score opposite that (so…another valley).

I used Liquid Glue between the two closest score lines – then pressed the card front to the back – this adhered them together and created the top-fold.

 

I matted some Misty Moonlight paper from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on Mint Macaron cardstock using Stampin’ Seal – then adhered the panels to the small top-fold panel – and the middle panel of the easel.  Tip: if you’re using a paper with an obvious “up” and “down” – pay attention to how it will look when it’s set up, okay? 🙂

I adhered a piece of Mint Macaron Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP to a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock.

For the next panel, I swiped the “emboss” side the pine bough folder in the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders set with my Whisper White Ink Pad, and then carefully placed a Soft Succulent panel inside, closed the folder and ran it thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  That adds a subtle “bump” to the embossing!

I rounded the bottom ends of the panel with the Detailed Trio Punch and then adhered the panel to the matted square with Liquid Glue.

I used the Encircled in Beauty die set to cut out a pretty medallion from the Misty Moonlight paper in Whimsy & Wonder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Wonderful Snowflake embellishment with Liquid Glue.

Using the small tree die in the Christmas Trees set, I cut a Mint Macaron cardstock tree and a Polished Pink tree from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP.  I used the larger tree to cut a Mossy Meadow tree.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a couple of Gold Holly Leaves to the card front – then added the three die cut trees.

I stamped the Whimsy & Wonder sentiment in Mossy Meadow on a strip of Basic White – angled the end with my Paper Snips – and popped it onto the panel with Stampin’ Dimensioanls.

I tucked a few more Gold Holly Leaves under the sentiment with Liquid Glue – added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels – and the front panel was done.  Using Liquid Glue only on the front part of the easel, I adhered the BOTTOM HALF ONLY of the panel to the easel. hope you like!

For the inside, I matted the Misty Moonlight DSP to a Mint Macaron mat and adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the second Whimsical Christmas sentiment in Mossy Meadow on a Basic White Scalloped Contours die cut.  In the corners I added the holly image in Mossy Meadow and colored them with my Polished Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.  I added a Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewel and adhered the sentiment inside the card with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the little Christmas tree from Whimsical Christmas in Mint Macaron on Basic White and cut it with its matching die.  I cut a garland from Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the tree onto the back of the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional to create the easel stop.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a piece of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the top of the card – securing it in the front.  Then I tied a little bow and adhered it with another Glue Dot and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Whimsical Christmas tree on the front in Mint Macaron…

…and more of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really REALLY love this fun-fold, don’t you??!  So much coolness – and so much….real estate?…to decorate!  And the Whimsical Christmas stamp set and Christmas Trees dies are so fun.  With the addition of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP in pretty pinks and greens and blues…..Yep.  It’s a winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Tailor Made Gift Tags

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  We’re having a marvelous time at our Retreat – crafting and yakking and eating and then repeating!  James is the consummate host – and we can’t recommend Crafty Elk Lodge enough!!  🙂

When we got here yesterday, we “moved in” to the crafting area and got everything set up.  Which included setting out some welcome gifts!  I figured you’d like to see a very cool gift tag that you can put in your toolkit.  Not to put too fine a point on it – but…it’s the 18th of September.  There’s like…three months left before the Big Gift Giving season is upon us!  Consider this tag – cut using the Tailored Tag Die Set and decorated with the Peaceful Cabin bundle!  Take a look-see:

I started by cutting the Crumb Cake tag with the Tailor Made Tags Die.  Then I placed the tag into my Stamparatus and stamped the cabin image from Peaceful Cabin in Early Espresso.

I used my Blender Pen to “pull” ink out into the image to color it lightly.  Then I stamped a Reflected in Nature sentiment in Mossy Meadow under the image.

I used the tree dies in the Cabin Die set – there are two for each image – the outline die and the detailed die.  You can run them thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine together.  When you do – it creates an edge die cut with the tree “sticking up”.  For this application, I snipped them from the rest of the card stock.  I cut the single tree and the double tree die cut.

I adhered the single tree with Liquid Glue and popped the double-tree on with small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a single Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot and the tag was done.

 

So – with the groundwork in place – I made 10 more!  Thank you, Stamparatus! 😉

I used them as the gift tags for my retreat attendees!  I added some goodies to a super cool Stampin’ Up! mug (available only to Demonstrators – hint hint) and then gift wrapped them!

Be sure to check out the sweet Peaceful Cabin stamp set with the pretty Cabin Dies.  And Reflected in Nature has got some stunning – and useful! – sentiments!  Make all your gift tags using the Tailor Made Tags – and you’ll be on your way to being crowded The Decorating QUEEN!! 🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Melody Christmas Season to Remember

Happy Friday, y’all!!  As you read this, I’ll probably be on the treadmill (for the last time in a few days!)…OR running around like a chicken with my head cut off (something that…quite frankly…I’d be happy to go to my grave never actually seeing!!) trying to get ready to leave for the retreat.  I’ve noticed that the more…ahead I feel…the behinder I actually am!  🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not – but you’d like to see the replay – here ’tis!

At our meeting last weekend, my friend (and upline!) Amy Koenders did a super pretty clean-and-simple card using one of my fave things – the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  And some Painted Christmas Suite goodies.  I loved her version and so…decided to do my own riff on it!  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge with this one.

I started by matting a piece of Basic White cardstock on another piece of Basic White cardstock for the card front.

Then I embossed a smaller panel of the cardstock in the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder – matted IT on Basic White and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Uhm…are you seeing a theme here?!  😂😂😂

On another piece of Basic White – in Early Espresso ink – I stamped two berry sprigs from the Christmas Season stamp set.  Then I added the berries in Cherry Cobbler.  I also stamped the holly leaves in Soft Succulent (I stamped the image twice which gave me FOUR leaves – I only used three on the card, though) and the pine sprig and other leaf (no idea what kind of plant that is – sorry!) in Evening Evergreen.

I cut all the foliage out with the matching dies from the Seasonal Labels Die set.

On another rectangle of Basic White, I stamped the Christmas to Remember sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and matted it on Basic White.

I started to dry fit the foliage and the sentiment panel and realized I needed just another…little…sumpin’ sumpin’…a pinecone! 😳😳😳

So…I stamped the detailed pinecone – the smallest one in the Christmas Season set – in Early Espresso ink.  I added the less detailed image – the “fill” if you will – in stamped off once Early Espresso.  And then cut it with the matching die in Seasonal Labels.

That was just what I needed – so I adhered everything  to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped my matted sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to nestle some Gold Holly Leaves into the collage and finally added a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Soft Succulent and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Christmas to Remember in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel.  Then I stamped my foliage in the corner, in Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler and added a Soft Succulent jewel.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and then into a Thick Basic White card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Christmas to Remember foliage on the front…

…and the stamped pinecone and bough on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Thank you, Amy, for the inspiration for this card!  I love the pops of color from the Christmas Season die cut foliage and Christmas to Remember sentiment against the white-on-white-on-white.  The addition of the Merry Melody 3D Embossing is the perfect finishing touch!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Likeable Person for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I don’t know about y’all – well, I do, but….that’s such a great way to start, right?!? 😂 – but I LOVE the Beauty of Tomorrow Suite in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog!  So…I saw a color challenge that was perfect for the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP and decided to start from there and use more goodies from the suite – like the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set, Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch (I turned it up on its end).

And this is the Paper Players color challenge that got me rolling!  My Any 4th Color is Cinnamon Cider.  🙂

I started with a piece of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP that I matted on the bottom portion of a Cinnamon Cider mat.  I embossed a smaller piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock in the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it on the top of the mat to make the card front.

Using a couple of Glue Dots on the back, I adhered a length of 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the “seam”.

TIP:  my friend – and member of the CNCK team! – Terry Lynn Bright – shared a fun Glue Dot tip with us at our team meeting this past weekend. She ties a short length of ribbon around her Glue Dot roll and that lets her access the Glue Dots easily AND “corrals” the roll!  Thank you, TL!!

I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider with a die from Tasteful Labels – embossed it in the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using some more Glue Dots, I wound a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon into a “bow”.

Then I pulled some fun floral die cuts from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I popped the large acorn die cut – from the Ephemera Pack – onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On Cinnamon Cider, I stamped the Beauty of Tomorrow sentiment in Polished Pink.  I masked off part of the sentiment with a sticky note so that I could divide the sentiment.  Then I fussy cut each part and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added some Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels – here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Tomorrow in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the small floral in Cinnamon Cider and colored the teensy berries with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I nestled a little Polished Pink gem amongst the flowers.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Polished Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Beauty of Tomorrow florals on the front…

…and a little more Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think the color palette of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP is so gorgeous – rich and Fall-ish and wunnermus, don’t you?  The Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set is a perfect foil with some of the most beautiful fonts that I’ve seen.  And Ephemera Packs like this one are kind of a new thing for us at Stampin’ Up! but…I am loving them!  Such quick, easy and perfect decorations for your projects.

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Whimsy Kit Peek!

Good morning and…let me be the first to wish you a very Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Yes!  It’s Wednesday – and….THAT means that I only have two sleeps before I head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen and then head up to the north GA mountains for our Inkin’ Krew Retreat!  I am so excited to see everyone – and I’ve got a couple of ladies who are in my Crittters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team that I’ve never met in person!  Plenty of time on Zoom – but…this’ll be the first time we’re in the same spot!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’ll share pics as I’m able thru the weekend!

Stampin’ Up! recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called Christmas Whimsy.  I ordered it first jump out the gate and when it came….I dove in!  Remember – this is the one I think looks like it come straight outta Who-Ville!!

When I opened it up I found everything – and I do mean….EVERYTHING!…I needed to make eight fun Christmas cards!

THAT is the neat and tidy image from Stampin’ Up!  Here’s my hot mess!

Great job, Mare! 🤦‍♀️

But – I popped all the die cut pieces, folded the two designs of card bases and opened up the instructions.  I decided that at least for this first one, I’d do them exactly as the instructions said.

The instruction sheet is cool – they used pictures to let you know what to do and in what order – and (unlike some picture directions – you know the ones I mean!) – THESE actually WORK!

I mean – they even tell you how many stars or snowflakes to use and where to put the Dimensionals! 👍👍👍

I used the enclosed Night of Navy Ink Spot and the exclusive stamp set to stamp snowflakes and stars on the card bases – and stamp the sentiments.  This is where I DID depart a little – I’m not a huge “Season’s Greetings”  fan so I did them all with Merry Christmas.  But…you can do whichever you prefer – they both fit on the labels perfectly (thanks, Stampin’ Up!).

 

There’s a roll of Gold Trim to use on each design – love the tag “tied” on (in truth it’s got a little Glue Dot and the tag itself is popped on with a couple of dimensionals!).   And there are pretty blue foil snowflakes and stars adhesive-backed sequins to add, too!

The second design also gets a little gold foil star “sticker” added – only hard part here is making sure to get the ladder onto the card front straight so that it doesn’t look like someone is fixin’ to end up in the ER!

There’s even an “inside” sentiment that I used – and added some Night of Navy stamped stars.

I guess Stampin’ Up! has heard me say #nonekkidenvelopes cuz they included some beautiful envelopes with Gold Foil accents.

But…I added some stars to the front, too.  Cuz….I could! 😉

Et Voila!  In the blink of an eye I had eight fun full-sized cards – with insides stamped and ready – and decorated envelopes – all ready to get signed, stamped and mailed!  No cutting (except for the Gold Trim!) required – and the easy instructions make this a PERFECT project for new stampers or kids or….pretty much anyone who needs really cute Christmas cards!  It would be a GREAT activity to do together with family and friends – order a few kits and get to creating! 🙂

I hope you like!

And – this isn’t the ONLY kit that we’ve got available right now!  Check them all out – we’ve got stamping kits and even NON-Stamping kits for you to choose from.  Stop by the online store Kits Collection to pick up your kits!  Don’t forget that the kits are only available while supplies last, so order quick to make sure that you get yours…and pick up some free Sale-a-bration goodies if your order reaches $50!

Stampin’ Up! Cute Halloween Sparkle for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Halloween Fun!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I’ve been having a hankering to cut up some of the sweet little ghosties from the Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ DSP pack so…that’s what I did today.  And I added it to an oh-so-spooky (seriously – brace yourself!)….Highland Heather wreath from the Sparkle of the Season Bundle.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card is from this week’s TGIF challenge sketch.

And the color scheme is thanks to the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started by matting two pieces of the Cute Halloween DSP on Highland Heather and then adhering the smaller panel to the larger one to create the card front.

I cut out the larger wreath from the Seasonal Swirls die set – bundled with Sparkle of the Season – in Highland Heather and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I cut the smaller wreath – with the stars – from Basic White and adhered it as well.

I stamped the Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Highland Heather on a narrow strip of Basic White.  Then I snipped a banner into the left side and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Then I got busy with my Paper Snips to cut out a sweet little ghost – I know this little dude is sweeter even than CASPER!! – and used some stacked-up Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it over the bow.

I used the bat die in the Seasonal Swirls die set to cut three Black Glitter Paper bats and adhered them to the wreath and the sentiment with Liquid Glue.  I also added a few Highland Heather stars from the Cute Stars Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the stars of the wreath and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped the bats from Sparkle of the Season in Tuxedo Black in the corner of a Basic White panel.  And I added some stamped Highland Heather stars, too!

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the bats and stars on the front…

…and more stripe-y Cute Halloween DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’ll tell you what, y’all – the Sparkle of the Season bundle is SOOO versatile and fun!  Get sentiments and images that will have you covered for Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving AND Christmas – all in one bundle! THAT is what I call Bang-For-Your-Buck!  And the Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ DSP is just too…well….cute!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Knit Together Christmas Card

Happy Monday, y’all!  I hope your weekend was good despite the inherent solemnity of the date. Other than my haircut on Saturday, we stuck pretty close to home.  🙂  I’m busy getting ready for our team retreat next weekend and we had a team meeting yesterday.  We made some cute cards – and I’ll be sharing my riffs on a couple of them in then next little while.

My card for today uses the sweet Merriest Moments stamp set with the bundled Merriest Frames Dies and…the Knit Together bundle.  Take a look at what I came up with when I added some Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP!

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

Several of the design elements were inspired by the Inspo List over at the Festive Friday challenge.  I got white – pearls – leaves – die cut! 🙂

And – I also pulled in the Just Add Ink challenge prompt.

I started with a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP that I matted on Misty Moonlight for the card front.

I matted a smaller piece of the DSP – in a Mint Macaron design – on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the embossed panel, I placed a Basic White panel into my Stamparatus, inked the Knit Together stamp set with Versamark Ink and stamped the panel.  Then I sprinkled it with white embossing powder from the Basic Embossing Powders Pack.  I heat set it with my Heat Tool and then let it cool.  Tip:  when embossing powder is all melty – but still hot – it’s pretty easy to smear it, so…leave it be for a minute or two, okay?

When totally cool, I used several of the fun dies in the bundled Knit Sweater dies to cut the traditional Christmas sweater designs into the panel.  I ended up with three pieces of the panel which I adhered to the small panel on the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip:  I adhered the bottom piece – then the top piece – and then the center piece.  That makes it easy to get the spacing just right!

I stamped a Merriest Moments sentiment in Misty Moonlight on another piece of the Mint Macaron DSP from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP pack, then snipped a banner into the left end.  I matted it on Misty Moonlight – similarly bannerized – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the small holly leaf and the berries images from Merriest Moments in Mint Macaron and Polished Pink.  Then I cut them with their matching dies in the Merriest Frames die set (this is part of the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder if you’re buying it separately!).

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue and popped the berries over them with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I added a Polished Pink gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the sentiment – and a Pearl Basic Jewel to each of the die cut poinsettias in my “sweater” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Merriest Moments in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the holly leaves and berries.  I stamped the berries in Polished Pink, then made a sticky note mask (stamped the berries on the sticky note and fussy cut them), set it over the stamped image and stamped the two holly leaves over top in Mint Macaron.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the holly berries and leaves on the front…

…and more striped Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! I really like the Knit Together Bundle – have you seen it or did you miss it?  It’s quite unassuming but, with the cool background stamp and coordinating Knit Sweater dies – I think there’s a lot of fun projects to be made with it, don’t you?  And, of course, the Merriest Moments stamp set is gorgeous – I love the leaves and berries you can create – and that doesn’t even account for the amazing FOLDER part of Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder that’s part of the bundle!  I only needed the dies for this card!

I hope you like!

Good morning, y’all.  It is September 11, 2021.  Twenty years ago – do you remember where you were?  What you were doing?  What you were feeling?  I do.  And I always will.  I know this is a somber day for anyone who is old enough to remember the day – and, I hope, for the young folks who should be learning this pivotal piece of our Country’s history.  Take the time today to reflect and remember, would you?  It’s a day that changed all of us forever.
