Stampin’ Up! Tidings All Around Wreaths for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I went back to the Toile Tidings Suite for this Sneak Peek today – this time…using the Tidings All-Around stamp set and bundled All Around Wreath Dies!  Plus some of that wunnermusly gorgeous Toile Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – you can see I turned it on its side! (Lay your left ear on your left shoulder – you’ll see it!)

I started with one of the pretty Garden Green paper from the Toile Tidings DSP, matting it on Soft Suede for the card front.  Next up is a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the new Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder (coming in the 2019 Holiday Catalog), matted it on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim to the embossed panel.

Then I used the more intricate wreath die in the All Around Wreath Die set to cut a Garden Green and a Vellum Card Stock wreath.  I used a few Glue Dots to adhere the Vellum wreath to the Garden Green Wreath.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the wreath onto the embossed panel.

I cut two Soft Suede branches and two Garden Green boughs –  both in the All Around Wreath Die set – and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the top of the wreath.

Three little Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots at the top – and a Burlap Ribbon bow adhered with a Glue Dot – finished off the wreath.

I stamped the Toile Tidings sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla and used a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut it out.  It was too long – so…I ran it half-way thru my Die Cutting Machine, then moved the die and ran it half way thru from the other direction.  That let me make a custom-sized Stitched Rectangle!

I popped the sentiment onto the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla, then added the large wreath image in Garden Green.  I added some Real Red berries, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Tidings All-Around wreath in Garden Green and Real Red on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I think this is one of my favorite Suites – and this Tidings All-Around stamp set, with its bundled All Around Wreath Dies – is certainly a showcase (and show STOPPER) piece of the suite!  I hope you like!

And – are you getting ready?!?  There’s less than a WEEK before you can order from the amaze-balls new 2019 Holiday Catalog! 😉

There’s not really a story or a little funny to go along with these pictures.

Wayne was searching for fur-stickers.  When you’re covered in fuzzy Velcro, those are a perpetual problem.  The struggle is real.

I was on the sofa and looked over and…the expression on the Man’s face and the position he was in was….just too sweet.  It NEEDED to be captured.

So….here ya go!

You’re welcome! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths and Scrolls Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Before I get going – let me remind you that today is the day that the Trimmer Blades will be available again – starting at 10am Mountain Time!!  I’ll TRY to be at the computer to send a quick “HEY IT’S LIVE” post…but…set your alarms and head to the Online Store right on time (or even a little early!) and start ordering your own (Item #126995)!  Three packs – that’s the max!

My card for you today is another Sneak Peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog – which is just over a week away! This one uses the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  Something cool about this set is that it coordinates with the All-Around Wreaths dies – which you can get bundled with the Tidings All Around stamp set!  Yep – one die set…TWO stamp sets that coordinate!  Winner winner! For this card, I also used the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

And the colors are from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (coming 4 Sept – find it in the Spooktacular Bash Suite!) and then matted on Blueberry Bushel for the card front.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a square of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp the wreath using the image in the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  I placed the stamp in the first “corner” of the square panel and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I turned the panel 1/4 turn to the right (clock-wise) and stamped again.  I did that two more times to complete the wreath!

I colored the wreath with my Light and Dark Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.

I added some faux “stitches” around the edge with my Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Seasonal Wreaths, is stamped in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White and cut with another Stitched Rectangles Die.  I used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered with a Glue Dot.  A Gingham-Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequin in Grapefruit Grove and a few Pearl Basic Jewels finished it off!

On the inside, I added second sentiment from Seasonal Wreaths in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the floral bough image once in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – coloring it as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another floral bough from Seasonal Wreaths on the front…

…and some more of the Petal Pink Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  LOVE this wreath – made from four stamped images from Seasonal Wreaths!  But – there is ALSO a full wreath image in the set – and that one can be cut out with the die in the All-Around Wreaths Dies!  And – the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder adds such a sweet and classy bit of texture! I hope you like!!

P.S.  Did I mention that Trimmer Cutting Blades will be available TODAY at 10am Mountain Time!! This is the final shipment of Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995).  The limit is three blades per customer!  When they sell out (and they will sell out quickly), they will be gone for good.


HOST CODE FOR 16 AUG – 31 AUG: 6TYGSRTF

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from any active catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.

Finn Fan Fix


I have some proof that Finn has Super-Canine Powers.

So yesterday morning, the Man decided to hold the strategically superior high ground…literally…

He stared at me – looking really quite splendid! – as I peeked around the corner to take his picture.

He’s a Star.  It’s his due.

Several minutes later – with no fanfare, very little noise and no indication to him – I ever-so-stealthily went into the tack room (which he absolutely, positively could NOT see from his vantage point!) to get the peppermints for the girls.

One point two nanoseconds later…

Super ear-balls.  Super schnoozle.

Just sayin’.

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin News and….a little Blog Candy! :)

Morning, y’all!  Hope your week is successfully winding down!  Mine is.  I mean…I think it is?  I am really having trouble keeping track of the days.  I keep thinking it’s the weekend – and being really surprised when there’s a lot of traffic on the road at 4 in the afternoon.  I’m actually kind of surprised at how disorienting NOT working is – guess I figured that, since I worked at home for so many years…it would feel the the same.  It’s totally not! 😉

So – the topic for today is Paper Pumpkin – and…Blog Candy!  Will that be okay?

I got my Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin and then I bought the cool Add-on, too.  And I saw so many folks talking about how wonderful it is!  So…I went to open it up and put it all together.  And then…I thought…why don’t you save it – and give it away?? 🙂

That seemed like a really splendid idea – so…that’s what I’m doing!

I’m giving away a Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin…check it out right here in the Unboxing Video…

…and an add-on bundle (so the winner can make cards, too!).

But – before we get to the How-Can-I-Win-This-Awesome-Candy part of the program – let’s take a little look at what’s coming in September from Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a “hand”-made Halloween Kit that is going to be a chillingly good time!

Image may contain: text

This one will let you whip up 20 Halloween-themed, food safe-treat boxes – in Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White!  Sounds pretty fun to me!  And – who knows?  Maybe there’ll even be an add-on bundle like this month!  Fingers crossed! 🙂

Here’s what you need to do to get the September Kit.

Get.  Signed.  Up.  By 10 Sept!  Easy peasy.

If you are NOT an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber…

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.  

Or you can…do a Prepaid Subscription!  To see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store, click here.

So – here’s the thing.  You MUST be an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber by 10 September to get this kit!!  If you subscribe AFTER 10 September – you are going to get the October kit!  Make sense? 🙂

Okay – I expect to see y’all signing up right away – cuz that looks like a fun one for Halloween!!

Now – on to the candy!  The Blog Candy, that is!

To enter to win this Gift Of Fall kit and coordinating Add-on Bundle, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post by 5pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, 27 Aug 19 and tell me your favorite new BUNDLE in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  There are TWENTY-FIVE bundles in this catalog – which one do YOU love the most!?!

Just a note –  I have comment moderation turned on so it may take me a few minutes to see and approve your comment.  Don’t worry if it doesn’t show up right away, it’ll be there just as soon as I see it.  🙂

The winners will be chosen by the random number generator from all of the comments received and I’ll announce the winners on my blog on Wednesday, 28 Aug 19!

Please note, anyone is welcome to leave me a comment but per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, I can only ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States.  Thanks for your understanding.  Good luck!!

Have a great Friday, y’all! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color challenge, I immediately thought “Come Sail Away Suite”.  I mean – serious.  But then I thought – come on, Mare – let’s get outside the DSP pack.  So…I looked arround and decided to go with the new Feels Like Frost suite – coming SOON in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Take a look-see at what I came up with!

And…the color challenge (yea – I KNOW that you already know, but…it’s habit!).

I also borrowed a little inspiration for the layout from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

 

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and made a little “DSP”.  I used the small flower image from Frosted Foliage and stamped it all over in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.  Then I matted it on Soft Suede for the card front.

The next panel is more Whisper White, covered in stamped-off-once Night of Navy with the same flower image.  It’s also matted on Soft Suede and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Finally – I cut a small piece of the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP, matted it on Soft Suede and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Frosted Foliage in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue.  Then I used the frame die in the Frosted Frames Dies (bundled with the Frosted Foliage stamp set for a 10% savings!) to cut it out.  That frame is a lot bigger than I needed – so I cut it half way – moved the die to shorten it up and cut it from the other direction to make the smaller label.

While I had the die set out, I cut some leaves and flowers in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.

I created the collage – starting with the leaves – using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and some Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon.  I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished it with a Linen Thread Double-Loop bow, adhered with a Glue Dot.

Finally – I added a few Night of Navy jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used Balmy Blue and Night of Navy ink to stamp the flower from the front on a Whisper White panel.  I used stamped-off-once ink for all of them.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Frosted Foliage flowers on the front…

…amd a little more of the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this gorgeous Suite – anchored (see what I did there?  Just think about it a minute – it’ll come to you…) by the spectacular Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP and finished up with the Frosted Foliage bundle!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bitty Dino-Raursome Birthday Card!

Happy Happy….HAWWWMP Day!  Whoo-hoo!  On the downhill slide now, y’all! 🙂

Now – I have a terrible confession.  My card today is a card I MADE yesterday.  That’s not the confession – that’s pretty much the norm!

The confession is that the card I MADE yesterday is for my little Ginger-man who turned one.  Yesterday.  So…guess how late his card is going to be??

I know – he may not even notice.  But I notice and I feel bad. 🙁

So – I hope that the fun little Dino Days dudes on this card – and the fun colors from the Dinoroar DSP – will give him a grin and ease the sting of its late arrival.  Take a look-see:

I played again with this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – I think I’ve FINALLY got it right! 😉

And I kept it simple as a result of The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple challenge.

I started with some of that fun Dinoroar DSP, matted on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

On a smaller panel of Whisper White, I stamped the dinosaur footprints image from the Dino Days stamp set many times across the panel – in Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Old Olive.

I matted the panel on a piece of Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Pretty Peacock.  Then I bannerized the ends with my Paper Snips and edged the banner with my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large…uhm…Brontosaurus?…in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel.  I gave him some Pretty Peacock spots.  Then I added a Dino Days sentiment in Old Olive.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Pool Party and Pretty Peacock Brontosaurus on the front…

…and on the back I added more Dinoroar DSP to the envelope flap.  And then…I couldn’t help it.  I added another Dino Days dino – in Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock – and a sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

Et Voila!  What a fun suite – don’t you think?  I love the sweet images and sentiments in the Dino Days stamp set – and the colorful patterns – be they dinosaurs or geometrics – in the Dinoroar DSP!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Boo To You Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Big day ahead for us Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  Yep – this is the day we can start getting registered for the November OnStage!  That’s one of two events we have each year where we get together to see old (and new!) friends, get a look at the next catalog (in this case – the 2020 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs), and …. get free goodies!  All in all – it’s a ton of fun and something we all look forward to attending (and is a HUGE benefit of being a demonstrator!!  This time, we’ve got one of the Local events right here in Atlanta!  Whoo-hooo!!!

But – before that happens, we’re all going to have a chance to play with some truly awesome goodies from the wunnermus 2019 Holiday Catalog – starting on 4 Sept!  The card I have for you today is another little Sneak Peek – this time from the Spooktacular Bash suite!  I used the Boo To You stamp set, some Monster Bash DSP and a little spider from the Wicked Dies to make a Halloween card!  Take a look-see:

Check out those goo-goo-googly eyes!! How fun are they?  🙂

The layout for this one is from the As You See It challenge…

And the color scheme is from the TGIF color challenge.

I started with two fun papers from the Monster Bash DSP – cobwebs above a bookshelf.  That seems pretty realistic to me! 😉  I matted the two pieces onto a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue to make the card front.

Then I wrapped some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the seam – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Whisper White circle with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and stamped the adorably frightful….uhm….Horn Monster?…on it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored it (him?  her?) with my Light and Dark Highland Heather and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I also used a Terracotta Tile (horn dots) and Crushed Curry (teeth and toe-nails) Stampin’ Write Marker, too.  Then I popped him onto the card front with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals (these are brand new in the 2019 Holiday Catty – and you get regular and mini dimensionals in the pack!).  Be still my beating heart!! 😉

The sentiment – also from Boo To You – is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with one of the many (many!!) awesome frame dies in the new Ornate Frames Dies (this is bundled with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set for a not-scary 10% savings!).  I edged it with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a black dimensional.

I stamped the “Boo” from the second sentiment stamp in Boo To You three times in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White – then fussy cut them and edged them in Basic Black.  I adhered them ever-so-spookily around the spider webs with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Wicked Dies and cut 3 really cute little spiders from Basic Black and popped them all onto the card front with….BLACK Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final – and most perfect touch of all! – is two perfect Googly Eyes in Granny Apple Green, adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a Boo To You zombie-dude in Tuxedo Black.  He’s colored with Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  His trousers are Terracotta Tile.  And then – a couple more Googly Eyes!!  Adding another little Wicked spider just seemed like the right thing to do!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got another zombie dude….

…and some more spider-webby Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay, you guys – I really love the Halloween offerings in this Holiday Catalog!  I think the characters in Boo To You are so cute it’s ridiculous – and the Assorted Googly Eyes just make them POP!!  Add in the Spooktacular Bash and matching Ornate Frames Dies, some Monster Bash DSP and an assist frrom the Wonderfully Wicked bundle – and….you’ve got the makings of a Spooky Good Time this Halloween!  I hope you like!

If these look fun – I’d urge you to take a look at my Special Bundle #5 – the Wicked Good Fun Bundle!

You’ll even get the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder for free!

You can get all the deets and get signed up for this – and/or any of my Special Bundles right here!

Stampin’ Up! Basketweave Friend Like You!

Good morning – welcome back to the work week!!  I hope it will fly as fast as I know the weekend went for you! 😉

Today is…NOT a sneak peek of the 2019 Holiday Catalog!

gasp!

Instead – I went back to a lovely little stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called Friend Like You, which I paired up with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started by stamping the wavy pattern from the Friend Like You stamp set on a Crumb Cake panel.  I stamped it twice to get all the way across the panel – first in Balmy Blue and then, offset a little (down), in Granny Apple Green.  Then I embossed the panel in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the panel down to size and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the leaves/stem image in Granny Apple Green.  Then I inked just the cattails (on a second stamp) in Balmy Blue and stamped it.  Finally, I inked the flowers in Daffodil Delight (same stamp) and finished the image.  This is a photopolymer set – so it’s fairly easy to ink specific parts of the stamp.

I added a couple of Balmy Blue dragonflies.

I used a Stitched Nested Label Die to cut the art then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a Friend Like You sentiment in Balmy Blue and cut it out with the small, narrow Stitched Rectangles die.  I used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the sentiment.

I finished off with a few Woven Threads Sequins (adhered with Liquid Glue) and a bow tied from Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon (adhered with a Glue Dot) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Friend Like You sentiment in Balmy Blue on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped the leaves, flowers and dragonflies – just like I’d done on the front – but here I stamped the images off once before stamping it over the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight 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 the flowers, leaves and dragonflies (in full strength ink) on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! I love this pretty, any occasion, Friend Like You stamp set – it’s perfect for sending a little note to a friend for any day!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Night Before a Holly Jolly Christmas Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Mine has been uneventful – which is good.  But…not awfully productive.  Which is…not so good! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see what I did with the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season dies – here’s the replay!

I used the Holly Jolly Bundle with some Night Before Christmas DSP and Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack stickers to create a fun 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  Take a look-see:

I – rather loosely! – used the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch for the layout. 🙂

And the color scheme is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some Santa Hat paper from the Night Before Christmas DSP (available on 4 Sept), matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I took a small piece of Very Vanilla and, using a Sponge Dauber, inked it up with Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and picked a likely sentiment – that’s just ONE of the fun Christmas-y stickers in the pack, y’all! – and adhered it at the bottom of the panel.

With the Jolly Season Die, I cut Santa and his reindeer from Soft Suede and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a Cherry Cobbler rhinestone from the new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment banner.  Then, cuz…hello?  Rudolph??  I colored a small Pearl Basic Jewel with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and added it to the lead reindeer’s schnoozle. 😉

Finally – I added a bunch of new Snowflake Sequins with teensy dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  In the bottom corner, I added Santa in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – then colored him and his toys with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Soft Suede, Light Pretty Peacock and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Holly Jolly Christmas Santa on the front…

…and some more of the Santa Hat Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a fun suite!  Night Before Christmas – with the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle and wonderful DSP – not to mention the Memories & More Card Pack (and there’s notecards and envelopes, too!) – is a great addition to your Christmas card-making repertoire!  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Crowd Sneak Peek!

Good morning – guess what?? It’s FRIDAY!!  Which means we’re teetering on the brink of THE WEEKEND! Whooo-hooo!! 🙂

I’ve got a super sweet – super simple – super quick! – 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you today.  It uses a little set that you might have overlooked in the catalog – called Christmas Crowd!  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

And the Black-White-Cherry Cobbler color scheme is from The Paper Players this week!

This is quick, so…buckle-up, buttercup!

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the main image and a sentiment from the new Christmas Crowd stamp set – coming on 4 Sep AND available as part of my Snow Much Fun Special Bundle 10! – in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I used my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color various parts of the image.  I pulled the Cherry Cobbler Watercolor Pencil from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 to every-so-lightly color Santa’s nose.

I ran a length of new Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Stripe Ribbon (also coming 4 Sept – and is the FREE gift with Cozy Christmas Special Bundle #9!) – around the panel and secured it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I used a shorter length and tied a faux bow.

I added a few Cherry Cobbler jewels from the new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (yes – you can get this FREE, too – check out the bundle lists!!) here and there, a couple three gold Metallic Pearls, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Christmas Crowd sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  Then, using the little snowflake image, I inked and stamped it in Tuxedo Black, stamped it off TWICE and added it all around the sentiment.  I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls and some Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Christmas Crowd on the front…

…and more snowflakes on the envelope flap.  I inked and stamped it off once and then stamped the flap twice without re-inking…then I colored some of the little circles with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.

Et Voila!  Is that not the cutest and cheeriest Christmas Crowd EVER!!?  I love this image – and the accompanying sentiments are tons of fun!!  I hope you like – and are adding it to your Gotta-Have-It list!!

September 4 is fast approaching!  Which means…we’re approaching the time for me to order your Special Bundles – so…get on the bandwagon – before it’s gone! 🙂
