The Mailbox Has Been Filled with Lovely Cards!

Well – happy Saturday!  Are y’all out and about taking socially-distanced-advantage of the after-Christmas sales?  We are…not!  We hunker down on the day after Christmas in non-COVID years so…no incentive to brave the chaos this year!

I’ll be live this evening at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page with a card to share.  Do I know right now what that card is?  Nope – I confess, I spent yesterday cooking our Christmas Prime Rib and enjoying the day!  But…I hope you’ll join me anyway – even without a sneak peek!  It’ll be like a….Mystery Movie! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Classic Christmas Tree Angle Card

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend!  Anyone get a look at the Geminids?  I would have – but…maybe y’all know how early I go to bed?  Also – COLD outside!  So…I watched for a while on a Live event on YouTube.

While typing this blog!  I call that multi-tasking!

My card today is a Christmas card.  Yes – I KNOW I’ve said I’m done with Christmas cards but…any day now I’ll truly be DONE with Christmas cards until 2021!  This one features the Tree Angle set (which is on sale for 20% off in the Year-End Clearance!) and the coordinating Stitched Triangles Dies.  I added some fun Christmas Classic 6″ x 6″ DSP – which, while not on sale, IS leaving us at the end of the Aug – Dec Catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at the Inspired By challenge!

And some of the elements are from the Festive Friday challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I cut two Sahara Sand pieces of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP using a Stitched Rectangle Die.  These are adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Tree Angle sentiment in Cherry Cobbler between the two die cut rectangles.

Using a couple three different sizes and shapes of dies in the Stitched Triangles Die set, I cut some fun designs from Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce.

I adhered three of the trees above and below the sentiment with Liquid Glue – and popped the final two on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added Star Designer Elements – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Tree Angle sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped a Shaded Spruce tree – and added a Star Designer Element.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Shaded Spruce tree on the front…

…and a little more Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Tree Angle stamp set is a bit of a fly-over set, no doubt – but…it’s sweet in its simplicity!  And the fact that it has dies that match the images in the Stitched Triangles Dies.

And the Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand designs in the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP are wonderful for the season – or even year-round!

I hope you like!

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! Dove of Hope 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 today 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 wanted to play one last time with a couple of goodies that are leaving us on 4 Jan – the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Dove of Hope stamp set with its pretty Detailed Dove Dies.  I also pulled out Gathered Leaves which….yes.  THIS one hurts me.  I love this set and will miss it terribly!  On a brighter note, though…a few of these are on sale in the Year-End Clearance!!  Be sure to check it out!  Now – take a look-see at how they all came together!

And – here’s our layout for this week.

And I pulled my color palette from the Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with a piece of the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler using a Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in one of the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folders – and adhered it at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

I used the same size Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Dove of Hope in Early Espresso in the corner (making sure it would be straight when it was on the card).

I stamped the branch image from Dove of Hope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored it with my Dark Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Beautiful Boughs die set to cut two small boughs from Shaded Spruce cardstock and one medium bough from Pear Pizzaz.

I also cut two bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock leaves using the Gathered Leaves dies.

Have I mentioned these dies are leaving us forever soon? 😢😢😢

And – finally – I cut a Cherry Cobbler berry die from the Poinsettia Dies.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two of the Dove of Hope images in Tuxedo Black and cut them with their dies in the Detailed Dove die set.

I made the collage by first adhering the pine boughs and metallic leaves with Liquid Glue.  With a Glue Dot, I added a figure-8 bow made from a couple loops of Linen Thread.  I also used a Glue Dot to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment.  Finally – I added the Cherry Cobbler berry die.

Then I popped the large Dove of Hope over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the sprig on the second dove with my Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and popped it onto the card front in the top corner.

Finally, I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dove of Hope sentiment in Early Espresso on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the bough and dove – coloring them the same as I’d done on the front.  Then I added another Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the bough and dove on the front…

…and more Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dove of Hope stamp set and matching Detailed Dove Dies are gorgeous and really wonderful for Christmas!  And – after 4 Jan – you won’t be able to get them!  Nor will you be able to get any of the wunnermus Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP.  And – maybe I mentioned that Gathered Leaves is ALSO leaving??  Did I mention that….it’s on SALE right now for just $13!?!?  Yeah – that’s 50% off!  Get it!

GATHERED LEAVES DIES

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas In The Woods with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Joanne’s got a timely theme for us so… I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  You KNOW you’re making Christmas cards right now! 🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I enjoy the Festive Friday challenge – and saw a cool fun-fold by Beth McCullough – one of their talented Design Team members – and decided to figure it out and make it for you today!  Beth made an adorable snowman with hers – but…I’d been wanting to play with the negative-space die from the Pine Woods die so…I pulled out the In The Woods bundle (which – waaaah! – is retiring at the end of this catalog!

Good news?  Starting 8 Dec – you can pick up the die set for 30% off!).  I added a couple of sentiments from the Itty Bitty Christmas set – and set it all against some Snowflake Splendor DSP (ALSO retiring and on sale!).  Take a look-see:

 

Here’s our Paper Players challenge badge with our Christmas theme!

And – you guessed it!  I played with the Festive Friday challenge, too!  Let’s see, I got….blue, a little purple, snowflakes, fun fold, and trees! 🙂

I started with a side-fold card base in Misty Moonlight.

Then I matted a piece of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle Dies, I cut a “window” from the front of the card.  You might need to roll thru your cutter a few times – it’s a few layers to cut!

I took the next biggest die in Stitched So Sweetly and cut a piece of Whisper White.  From that, I used the die in Pine Woods to cut the negative of the tree.

For the “fun fold” piece, I used a piece of Highland Heather – 5″ x 8 1/2″ and scored it at 4″ and 6 1/4″.  The 4″ score line is folded as a “valley” and the 6 1/4″ as a “mountain”.

I adhered two coordinating pieces of the Snowflake Splendor DSP to the two smaller flaps.

I adhered the folded cardstock into the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

I folded the card back up – and used Liquid Glue to adhere the cut-out part of the card front to the outside smaller panel of the fold.  Take your time adding your glue – don’t get carried away!

Next – I popped the tree-die-cut Whisper White panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I popped it onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem to the white panel and the card front was done!

For the inside, I added a second Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Misty Moonlight to a Whisper White panel.  Over top, I added the two In the Woods 3-tree images – outline and fill! – in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added some Pool Party snowflakes – also from In The Woods –

and adhered the panel into the card base with Liquid Glue…

…added another Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got full strength Highland Heather trees and Pool Party snowflakes on the front…

…and more of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How fun is this fun-fold?  And…it’s even pretty easy – so…winner winner!  And I love the In The Woods stamp set and matching Pine Woods Dies – but, they’re leaving us soon, so…you’re going to want to pick them up if you don’t have them.

Starting on Tuesday, 8 Dec – you can get the dies at 30% off.  And the beautiful Snowflake Spendor DSP – also retiring at the end of the catalog! – will be on sale at 20% off!  Whoo-hoo for savings!

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

I hope you like!

Now…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun! 🙂

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Pines Paper Pumpkin Gift Box 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 theme challenge, today (a really TIMELY challenge!) – 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!

So – last week I made a cool Christmas card with the Poinsettia Dies and some Poinsettia Place DSP.  I thought it would be fun to make a coordinating project that I could use as we head into gift-giving season!  So…out came the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, the Beautiful Boughs Dies and more of the pinecone-strewn Poinsettia Place DSP.  Then, to hold my gift…a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box (my favorite little gift box from Stampin’ Up! ever!!).  Take a look-see:

And here’s our oh-so-timely theme challenge! 🙂

I figured this one was – once again! – perfect for the TGIF challenge this week!

I started with a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box – these are so cool!  I love that they’re food-safe on the inside – perfect! – and they’re a super size for gifting homemade goodies!  Once you decorate them – they’d be the bomb-diggity as stocking stuffers, too!

I used the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and matted four strips of Poinsettia Place DSP and the large piece for the top of the box using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the four strips around the edge of the box.

On the top, I used Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim longways and crossways – like ribbon around a present.  Then I popped the panel onto the top of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out the Poinsettia Dies and got busy.  First, I cut a flower from the Poinsettia Place DSP.  I also took a minute to fussy cut some of the smaller middle petals from another flower.

I also cut some Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock berries.

Using the Beautiful Boughs dies, I cut a large Mossy Meadow bough, a medium Old Olive bough, a large and small solid pinecone from the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and the large and small detailed pinecones from Crumb Cake.

Yes, ya’ll – with no “it needs to fit in a Medium Envelope” requirements to hold me back – I shucked the reins and let my collage-freak flag fly! 😉

I adhered a couple of the metallic berries to the box top with Liquid Glue – sliding them under the twine.  Then I adhered the large Mossy Meadow die cut.

I tied a big loopy bow with two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I adhered the pine cone pieces together and added them – along with the Old Olive die cut bough and final berry die.

On a couple of strips of Very Vanilla cardstock, I individually stamped the two words in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Early Espresso.  I snipped banner ends in both pieces and – sliding them into the collage – adhered them with Liquid Glue.

Using some stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the large die cut poinsettia flower.  Then I used more Dimensionals to pop the fussy cut smaller petals onto the flower.

And – y’all?  That’s it!  AKA….Et Voila!

My collage-loving soul is SOOOO happy with this!  And – check out how it looks with that card from last week!

Just enough differences to not be all matchy-matchy!  If you’d like to see how I made that one, it’s right here!

I think that the Poinsettia Petals Bundle and Poinsettia Place DSP makes it abundantly obvious that Poinsettias and Pines go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Or…the Captain and Tennille! 😉 Thankfully, we’ve ALSO got the Beautiful Boughs dies to make our theme complete!

I hope you LOVE this as much as I do!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines and For Unto Us CAS Christmas Cards

Good morning, all – and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  The week is flying by, isn’t it?  I had to look at my watch when I started this post last night to see what day it was.  I was shocked to realize it was already Tuesday.  Yikes!

I’ve been getting some queries about ideas for easy to make Christmas cards – that are suitable for making multiples!  I made one a couple weeks back using the Curvy Christmas stamp set – you can see it here.  But – it got me to thinking, so I decided to do a riff on that one – with one of my favorite stamp sets – the Peaceful Boughs set.  I added a sentiment for the inside from For Unto Us and went back to the gorgeous Gold Cards & Envelopes, just like the first card.  Take a look-see:
