Stampin’ Up! Toile Joyful Holly Christmas Card

Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going well!

Before we get going – be sure to read down and check out the invite to our Inkin’ Krew World Card Making Day event coming up on Saturday, the 3rd!  A bunch of us will be doing live FB card demonstrations – including yours truly! 😉  And as you’re scrolling – take a last look at the cool Get & Go Starter Kit Promotion joining special – today and tomorrow are the LAST days to take advantage of all the FREE goodness! 😉

Now.  Card.  I pulled some Toile Tidings DSP – which will be on sale starting on 1 Oct! – and added a sentiment and some holly from the sweet little Joyful Holly stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one if from the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge – although I gave it a flip!

I started with some Toile Tidings DSP that I matted on Basic Black for the card front.

Then I cut a strip of striped paper – still from Toile Tidings – and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black.  Next is a narrow strip of the buffalo check pattern – in Real Red – and adhered it right next to the first piece of DSP.  I finished it off with a strip of Black Glitter Paper.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the top of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla Celebration Labels die (the next-to-smallest die) and stuck it in my I my Stamparatus. Then I stamped the Joyful Holly sentiment in Real Red.  That let me see where to line up the holly image, which I stamped in Garden Green.

Still using the Stamparatus, I added the “fill” image in stamped-off-once Garden Green.  Tip: to stamp off with the Stamparatus – ink the stamp – and then place a piece of grid paper or plain printer paper over your card stock.  Stamp the image and remove the paper.  Then you’re ready to stamp your card stock! 🙂

I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I cut two short pieces of ribbon from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack.  I used scissors to cut banner ends and then used a little Liquid Glue to tuck them under the sentiment.

I added Red Rhinestones to the holly for berries and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus again to add a second sentiment from Joyful Holly in Real Red on Very Vanilla.  I also added the holly in Garden Green and stamped-off-once Garden Green.  I took the panel out of the Stamparatus and added the berries using the stamp from Joyful Holly in stamped-off-once Real Red.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the same holly and berries on the front…

…and more of the Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Joyful Holly set is a simple-to-use two-step set (outline and fill) with pretty, traditional holly and simple sentiments.

And – Toile Tidings is so pretty – with ITS traditional Christmas look in Real Red, Garden Green and Vanilla!  Perfect to complement all your Christmas projects!

And – guess what?  The Toile Tidings DSP is one of the FIFTEEN on sale in October!  Yep – 15 DSP packs each at 15% OFF!  Hope you’re making your list!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix 

After Sunday’s Great Pancake Depression, Finn needed a win!

And – when the mail came on Monday – he got it!

There was a package addressed to Finn Deatherage!  Whoo-hoo!

Being the one with thumbs – and scissors! – I took the liberty of opening it up.  Look what we found!

My friend and Inkin’ Krew teammate Karen – who works in a doggie bakery in NJ! – sent him a care package of homemade gourmet cookies!

I called him in…

 

It took two videos…

 

And then – he ate it.  With great relish!  Please ignore my goofy commentary! 😂

 

Finn wants to put his paw-sonal endorsement out there for goodies and treats from The Hungry Hound!  FIVE paws up!

Fuzzy math – what can I say??

Thank you, Miss Karen! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Together Snowflakes

Good morning, y’all – and welcome to the last week of September!

Wow.  Can you even believe that?  I mean – I know many of us are really hoping that 2021 will be better on almost any level than 2020 – but…it’s hard to believe there’s only three more months of the year.  😳😳😳

But – that ALSO means there’s only THREE days left to cash in on the wonderful Get & Go Starter Kit Promotion!  So – if you’ve been on the fence – or…”decisioning and debating” (that’s what we do at our house!) – now is the time to pull the trigger!!  I’d love to have you join my team!

Now – card for the day.  I pulled out the new-to-me Coming Home Bundle and added a sentiment from Snow Wonder (Coming Home doesn’t have sentiments, so…) and some Snowflake Splendor DSP to make a chilly, clean and simple Christmas card for you.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And I played along with the fun Festive Friday challenge!  I hit Stars, Glitter, Purple and Blue.  Stampin’ Up! – if you’re reading this, I really REALLY need a Star Trek stamp set!! 😉

I started with some Highland Heather and Balmy Blue paper from the Snowflake Splendor DSP that I matted on Highland Heather for the card front.

Next, I took a shorter piece of Whisper White and cut it with the tree-line edge die in the Home Together Die set.

I stamped the sentiment, from Snow Wonder, in Balmy Blue, then adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a second piece with the second edge die in the set – the one with no trees.  Then I embossed it in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using more dies in the Home Together set, I cut a Whisper White house and a large tree.  I cut a large and small tree and a second house from Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.

I adhered the Whisper White house over the Balmy Blue house with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess (they’re not the same house!).

I added the two large die cut trees with Liquid Glue and popped the smaller tree on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added the house with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – using double-stacked dimensionals near the top to compensate for the layers underneath.

I added some Adhesive-backed Snowflakes in the sky and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped some of the tree images from Coming Home in Balmy Blue and “snow” in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added a few of the Adhesive-backed Snowflakes, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more trees and snow on the front…

…and more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Brrrr!  It just LOOKS chilly, doesn’t it??  The treeline, snowdrifts, trees and houses of the Coming Home bundle are perfect for the holiday season!  Just add a sentiment!

And…I love the swirls of blue and purple in the Snowflake Splendor sky, don’t you?

I hope you like!

And – guess what?  The Snowflake Splendor DSP is one of the FIFTEEN on sale in October!  Yep – 15 packs at 15% OFF!  Hope you’re making your list!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Cookies

Good Friday!  Not “Good Friday” – that’s a few months from now!

Don’t scoff – the Christmas decor was up at Costco last weekend.  Right next to the Halloween decor.

Which…I thought was interesting on many levels!

But – any which way you look at it – Christmas is almost here – which means Easter is almost here.  See?  Made it back to “Good Friday”! 😉

Almost got lost in my own ramblings.  Sheesh.

Now – on a “normal” Friday – this post would be all about the card that I made for you on my YouTube video yesterday.  But…I didn’t MAKE a card!  So – there IS a video – but not about this card.  It’s all about how to use the Simply Scored Tool to make a box-envelope for a thicker/dimensionalized card.  It’s a pretty short video – and you can see it right here on YouTube if you want! 🙂

My card, on the other hand – is a sweet confection suited for those of us who like cookies.  And coffee.  I used the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set with its bundled Love You More dies and a little Plaid Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the fun sketch at the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of coffee/cookie hued Plaid Tidings DSP that I matted on Basic Black for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Nothing’s Better Than cookie image three times in Cinnamon Cider ink.  Then I cut them with their matching dies from the Love You More Die set.

I colored the cookies with my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Combo pack.  I added more “chocolate-ness” with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  And added a little more detail to the cookies with the fine tip end of my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Write Marker.

I laid out the die cut cookies on a Whisper White panel and used them as a guide to stamp two more cookies directly onto the panel.  And I colored them the same as the die cut cookies.

Using Foam Adhesive Sheets – I cut out some Love You More Than die cut sentiments – in Cajun Craze and Basic Black.  Then I popped the individual sentiment words onto the panel.

I matted the panel on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

 

I added a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot above the “i” in cookies – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Nothing’s Better Than sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  I carefully inked just the “and” from one of the sentiments in the Nothing’s Better Than set in Cajun Craze and added it above the first word.  Finally, I stamped the “steam” in Cinnamon Cider!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Cinnamon Cider cookie, coffee cup and “steam” on the front…

…and I added a little more Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How cute is this Nothing’s Better Than bundle?  Whether you love cookies, chocolate, cocktails or…ALL of them!…this is the bundle for you!

I really love the sentiment dies – all the words are separate – so you can mix them up however you like! Fun!

And Plaid Tidings DSP.  Nothing else to say here – favorite DSP ever!!

I hope you like!

And…speaking of DSP….read on.  You MIGHT find some info about a cool DSP Sale coming soon from Stampin’ Up! 😉

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!
