Christmas

Stampin’ Up! A Festive Merry Christmas To All!

Good morning!  OnStage 2018 is in the History books!

Wow – what an event – which I’m sure you could tell from the pictures this weekend, right?  We had such a fun time with so many of our team there! 🙂

Amy and I will be on our way home soon.  Hard to believe it’s already over.  Just for your planning – please make note of the fact that I will NOT be doing a video tonight!  Next week!!

I’ve got a pretty Christmas card for you today using some plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP (one of my favorites!!) and the large and lovely snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits.  I borrowed some sentiments from the Merry Christmas To All bundle, too.  Take a sneak peek!

I chose my color scheme from the As You See It Challenge!  And – this was a speed challenge…fortunately, I had cut the snowflake already and it was in my stash – so this one took me just under 10 minutes to do the card! 🙂

 

I started with one of my favorite papers from Festive Farmhouse and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Next up is a shimmery snowflake from Snowfall Thinlits, cut from some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die from another Festive Farmhouse design and adhered it – again with Liquid Glue.

Using a die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits, I cut the large sentiment from a piece of Basic Black card stock and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the label border image from the Merry Christmas To All set in Cherry Cobbler ink.  In the center, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped a single word sentiment.  Then I fussy cut the label and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish everything off – I added a few frosted droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add the large sentiment from Merry Christmas To All in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Very Vanilla panel.  Around it, I added a couple of flourishes in Cherry Cobbler.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another couple Cherry Cobbler flourishes on the front…

…and I added some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love me some plaid, folks – and the Festive Farmhouse DSP is just perfect.  And Merry Christmas To All is such a versatile set – you can make all sorts of holiday greetings with the stamps and bundled Merry Christmas Thinlits!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Glistening Snowfall!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  We’re headed into the last day of OnStage 2019!  Wow – I can hardly believe it’s almost over.  It’s gone by SO fast.

I suppose it really IS true that time-flies-when-you’re-having-fun!  And being here with all these Demos from around the world and, most ESPECIALLY! – with my wonderful teammates from the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew and Amy’s Inkin’ Krew….has been AWESOME fun!!

Of course – getting FREE goodies AND seeing the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration products doesn’t hurt, either! 😉

My card today is a quick and easy one that really celebrates the new limited-time Snowflake Showcase products – particularly the Snow is Glistening stamp set and the most-wonderful Snowfall Thinlits!  Take a look-see:

This one was super easy to create – so buckle up!

I started by inking up the “cloud” – is it a “snow” cloud?? – from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set (in the 2018 Holiday Catalog) in Balmy Blue and stamping-it-off-once on scrap paper,  Then I stamped it in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I did that two more times (for a total of three – in case you lost track!).

Over top of the snow cloud, I added the little snowflake image from Snow is Glistening a few times in full-strength Balmy Blue.  Then I matted the panel on Tranquil Tide card stock with Liquid Glue.

I inked the sentiment from Snow is Glistening in Tranquil Tide and added it to my blizzard.

The snowflakes – all cut with dies in the Snowfall Thinlits (my goodness, I LOVE this die set!!) – are done in Silver Glimmer Paper and Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper.  I used Liquid Glue to stack them up and then to adhere them to the card front.

I added some clear drops from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to the middle of the snowflakes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another stamped-off-once Balmy Blue snow cloud (from Beautiful Blizzard), some full-strength Balmy Blue snowflakes and a Tranquil Tide sentiment from Snow Is Glistening to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tranquil Tide 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 snow cloud and snowflakes on the front…

…and a veritable blizzard of snowflakes on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! I love this suite of products! The Snow Is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall Thinlits really add glitter and bling to a soft snow cloud from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set.  I hope you like (and are adding this limited-time bundle to your stash!).

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Angels on Earth

Good morning!  So…Tuesday!  I hope you voted (or are planning to) today.  I’m hoping to get that done on our way out of town – cuz…I hate to think I’d have to spend the next few years NOT having the right to gripe and complain about our elected officials, right?!

On a much more important note…Amy and I will be traveling to Orlando today to begin our whirlwind week of fun at OnStage!!  This is Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary – so…it’s going to be a blow-out event, I am certain sure.  Watch thru the week for pictures and updates – the usual Spoiler Alert has been lifted.  Which means I can share goodies from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs all willy and nilly!  Whoo-hoo!!  Can’t wait to see what’s in store!

For today, I’ve got an angelic card to share with you, courtesy of the Angels on Earth stamp set and some Tin Tile Dynamic embossing.  Take a look-see:

Although I flipped it around a little, the layout for this one was inspired by the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch.

I started with a piece of Copper Foil paper that I embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.  I punched two Sprig Punch shapes from the middle of the embossed panel (for later) and then matted it on Garden Green for the card front.

Then – I took a piece of the pretty Dashing Along DSP (check out the deets below on how to get this pack for yourself!) and embossed it in the same DTIEF.  I tore the edges and then sponged them with Crumb Cake to distress it.  Finally, I used a sponge wedge to brush Bright Copper Shimmer Paint across the paper.

Next I adhered the paper on an angle with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Vellum card stock oval with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it with dabs of Liquid Glue (making sure the glue would be hidden by the rest of the elements).  Over the top, I added the two Sprig Punch shapes that I’d cut out of the embossed Copper Foil.

I used the pretty angel image in the Angels on Earth stamp set to heat emboss the image with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crumb Cake card stock.  Once the embossing was cool, I fussy cut her.  With Liquid Glue under the center and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional under each wing, I added her to the collage.

The sentiment, from Angels on Earth, is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Crumb Cake and cut with the Pretty Label Punch.  I used my Crumb Cake sponge to lightly distress the shape, then flicked the edges with the sponge I’d used to add the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  That added a little touch of shimmer and shine.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to add a Star Copper Wire Element.   A Linen Thread double-loop Billie Bow is popped on with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  Finally, I colored some Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend and popped them on to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Angels on Earth in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla mat.  In the corners, I added the pretty filigree image in Crumb Cake.  Then I flicked the edges of the panel with the Crumb Cake sponge.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelop got another Crumb Cake filigree corner on the front…

…and another bit of the Dashing Along DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Angels on Earth is a lovely set, perfect for creating vintage-y style cards for the Christmas season!  And the Tin Tile DTIEF adds just-right texture – especially in Copper!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Blizzard Snowfall

Well – it’s here again – Monday!

Enjoying Daylight Standard Time so far?  Feeling extra-rested with that whole ‘nuther hour you got yesterday? LOL

If you think you did – holler at me when it’s dark at 5 tonight.  Bleh! 🙁

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of that extra hour with me!  If not – here’s the Memorex version on YouTube!

I used the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set – and added a few little goodies from the Snowflake Showcase.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I started with a piece of the Galvanized Metallic Paper and embossed it in the new Swirls & Curls TIEF, then I adhered it to a Bermuda Bay mat with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment panel, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pretty swirls from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set in Balmy Blue across a Whisper White panel.

I added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay, then I cut the panel down to size and adhered it to its Bermuda Bay mat.

I wrapped a length of Bermuda Bay 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a new Snowflake Trinket with a Glue Dot and then added a bow over that with a final Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added three snowflakes onto a Whisper White panel.  They’re cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the dies in the new Snowfall Thinlits and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay 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 a flurry of Beautiful Blizzard snowflakes in Balmy Blue on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s easy to forget about stamp sets in the Annual Catalog when we’re playing with Holiday goodies – but…don’t!  And don’t be afraid to mix-and-match!  Beautiful Blizzard worked wonderfully with the lovely snowflakes from the Snowfall Thinlits!  And – a Snowflake Trinket was the perfect finishing touch!  Hope you like!

The Man can figure when someone is leaving like nobody’s business.

He takes his clues from…a lot of places.

For me – he starts figuring I’m leaving when…I use hairspray.

Yes – that’s all it takes to arouse his suspicion.

And – when I put my sunglasses on – he is GLUED to the back door.

Wayne tends to have fewer “tells” for him.

So…I guess he just figures that if the Dad is hurrying around – usually looking for his glasses/key/wallet/etc – then…he must be leaving.

I tried to tell him he wasn’t going anywhere (he was checking the tire pressure on the van in the garage).

He wasn’t buying what I was selling!

Stampin’ Up! A Blizzard and Snowfall Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well.  Mine has been good – if…less than effective.

Yes.  I have a long list of stuff that needs doing before the people-mover hits the road on Tuesday morning.

And…what I got done?  One card (out of about…7 that need doing).  Hair cut (yep – that takes like half the danged day!).

Oh – and I watched Antman and the Wasp.  Which was NOT on my list.

But – it WAS fun.

So.  There’s that!

Today.  Today will be my catch-’em-up day.

Really.

It could happen. 😉

Since it’s Sunday – and I’m back in the saddle – we’ll be getting together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 8pm Eastern.  We’re going to do a little Stampapotamus-ing.  With the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek:

It’s a fun little card – perfect for the impending snowy winter season!

I hope you’ll be able to join me!

8pm.  Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Illuminated Christmas

Well.  The weeks are just scooting by, aren’t they?  Just a second ago, it was Monday.  And now…

I don’t want to worry you but…it’s almost time to be needing your comfy, elastic-waist fat-pants!

Yes.  Thanksgiving.

And – practically the next day?  Christmas.

Yikes.  Where HAS the year gone!??

Actually – you don’t really need to be worried.  In truth, you’ve got all of 54 days left till Christmas.  No worries at all!

Of course, you might be wanting to make some Christmas cards – so…let me help you out.  My project today uses a beautiful new set called Illuminated Christmas with some Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

This layout comes from the FabFriday sketch!

Here’s a cool little tidbit about the Illuminated Christmas stamp set – it coordinates with the Stained Glass Thinlits in the Annual Catalog!  So…if you bought THAT bundle (it’s the Painted Glass Bundle on page 165!) then you’re all ready!

I started with some gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty DSP and matted it on Merry Merlot for the card front.

With the frame die in the Stained Glass Thinlits, I cut a Copper Foil frame and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut two Tranquil Tide pine boughs and a Copper Foil berry branch, which I adhered with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I stamped the Illuminated Christmas sentiment in Merry Merlot and cut it with a square Stitched Shapes Framelit.  I matted it on Merry Merlot and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the pretty flower from Illuminated Christmas in Merry Merlot.  I colored them with Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide using a Blender Pen, then I cut them with the die from the Stained Glass Thinlits.

I used an old Blender Pen to add little dots of Bright Copper Shimmer Paint to the middle of each flower.  When that was dry, I adhered the flowers – two with Liquid Glue and the final one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-loop Billie-Bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Illuminated Christmas sentiment in Merry Merlot on Whisper White and added another flower in the corner.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower on the front…

…and I gave the envelope flap a little more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.

Et Voila!  I love the beautiful sentiments in this pretty set!  Illuminated Christmas is a lovely, Spirit-filled stamp set, perfect for the Christmas season. Hope you like!

Lots of folks snapping up my Snowflake Showcase Special Bundle – don’t miss out!

I think it’s fair to say that Finn loves (as in LOVES!) the golf cart.

If you look around and he’s not around?

Check the golf cart.

Just chillin’, Mom.

(Check the casual chillin’-hands)

He really doesn’t even care WHERE the golf cart IS in relation to us.

Case in point.

Wayne and I were working on the telehandler the other day.

Don’t ask.

While I waited (in the telehandler) for my next instruction, I looked up in time to see the Man strolling toward…

See it?

Here – try this.

Still just chillin’…and surveying his domain!  All while keeping an eye on us back at the barn. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Signs of Santa Memories for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I went the “obvious” route considering the colors for today.  I pulled out my Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack, the matching Cards and Envelopes,  and the Signs of Santa bundle.  Take a look-see:

I’m just assuming you could figure out the Color challenge we had, but…just in case… 😉

My layout is a turned-sideways interpretation of this week’s The Paper Players sketch challenge.

I started with several cards from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Pack and cut them down to mat onto Garden Green panels.  I used three different designs and matted and stacked them to create the card front.

For the “ribbon” – I cut a strip off the end of one of the cards and matted it on a piece of Whisper White – then adhered it with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals (one on each end).

The Signs of Santa sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on another cut-down card from the Card Pack, matted on Garden Green and popped onto the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped Santa with his list from the Signs of Santa stamp set in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored him with my Light and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  I used the Light Daffodil Delight for his buckle.  Then I cut him with the matching die from the Santa’s Signpost Framelits.

I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add Santa to the card and that finished off the card front.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add the Signs of Santa sentiment, presents and two Elves to a Whisper White Panel in Tuxedo Black.  Then I used the Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight Blends and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker to color everything.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into one of the large Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards.  I added the card front with more Liquid Glue and the card was done!

On the front of my Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Large Envelope, I added a sparkly Santa Sticker – from the Memories & More Card Pack…

…and I gave the envelope flap a few sparkly hat stickers!

Et Voila!  It always astounds me how many fun – and different! – design elements are snuggled inside a Memories & More Card Pack and the Santa’s Workshop pack is no exception!  It coordinates perfectly with the Signs of Santa bundle – just in time for Christmas greetings!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Filigree’d Farmhouse Christmas

Happy happy Halloween-y Hawwwmp Day! The week is fixin’ to slide into the downhill run to the weekend!  Whoo-hoo!

Hopefully all your little ghoulies, ghosties and goblins are ready for some trick-or-treating tonight!

Here on Stamps-N-Lingers, though, it’s Christmas!

My card today uses an easily-missed little set in the Holiday Catalog called Flourish Filigree.  I think this sentiment is so pretty and it coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch.  And then I set it atop some Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Take a look-see:

I used Washi Tape and Twine thanks to the TGIF Product Spotlight challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla and ran two strips of golden starred Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape across it, then matted it on Garden Green with Liquid Glue.

The center panel is some Festive Farmhouse DSP, matted on Garden Green.  I wrapped some Very Vanilla Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine around three times and then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Flourish Filigree sentiment on Very Vanilla.  I did this using my Stamparatus and inking the stamp with my Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  I fussy cut the sentiment because I wanted it smaller than the Pretty Label Punch would give me.

I used that punch to cut a Gold Foil mat and popped my sentiment onto it with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Snowfall Thinlits (available on 1 Nov – and in a special Stamps-N-Lingers Bundle!)to cut a few Gold Foil berries and Pretty Pines to cut Garden Green pine boughs.  These are artfully arranged and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I popped the matted sentiment on with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-length bow from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added some Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes – white dots that I colored with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Flourish Filigree in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Very Vanilla panel and added a couple of Garden Green Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes.  Across the bottom I ran two more strips of Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape and a narrow piece of the Festive Farmhouse DSP.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some more of the Washi Tape across the front…

…and more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Flourish Filigree has several very nice sentiments on top of the large-and-lovely Flourish that is it’s namesake!  Don’t miss it!  Hope you like.

P.S.  Snowflake.  Showcase.  Bundle.  Get it quick!  I’ll be placing our order first thing tomorrow morning!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Spirited Snowmen Suite Season!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good little sumpin’-sumpin’ planned!  And are enjoying Fall!  I know we are – even yesterday’s rainy drizzly cold day!  Autumn is in the air!

I’ve got a super-cute, super-quick, super-simple little Christmas number for you today.  It’s got a little Spirited Snowmen and some Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape.  Take a look-see!

The layout hails from the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and I wrapped three pieces of the Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape around it.  Your Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper is a HUGELY handy tool for this kind of design element, y’all! 🙂

I matted the panel on a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sweet Spirited Snowmen in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a smaller piece of Whisper White, using my Stamparatus.  When the ink had dried, I colored him with my Light and Dark Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  I used my Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend for his carrot nose and a Light Smoky Slate for the blades of his skates.

I added the Spirited Snowmen sentiment in Cherry Cobbler at the bottom of the panel and matted it on Shaded Spruce.

I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added a few snowflakes from the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Whisper White panel, then I surrounded it with snowflakes in stamped-off-once Pool Party.  I finished off by wrapping some more of the Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape around the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce 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 more Spirited Snowmen snowflakes in stamped-off-once Pool Party on the front…

…and I added a final strip of the Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You can get a lot of design BAM from this Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape, huh?  And – there’s no denying the adorable cuteness of the Spirited Snowmen!  Hope you like!

Accessories make the Man.

Right?

But – perhaps the phrase refers to a pocket square.  Or maybe some snazzy cufflinks.  Perfectly shined wing-tips.

Okay – I’m dating myself, maybe.

Finn maybe does NOT quite get the “accessories” thing.

“Does this leaf make my butt look big?!” 😳

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Showcase in Pink Velvet for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch week challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I went straight-up Clean-and-Simple this week and it wasn’t easy, let me tell you!  I mean – it IS a quick and easy and clean and simple card.  It’s just not easy for ME to make a quick and easy and clean and simple card.  But – I persevered and used the new Snowfall Thinlits (which will be available on 1 Nov!) and added a couple of sentiments from the Christmas Traditions set (found in the Christians Traditions Punch Box!!).  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch!

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the Tufted Dynamic TIEF.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the embossed panel onto a Petal Pink mat.

I cut the large and lovely snowflake using the die in the Snowfall Thinlits from a piece of White Velvet Paper (these are both part of the Snowflake Showcase coming on 1 Nov).  With a Sponge Dauber, I sponged the velvet snowflake with Petal Pink ink.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

In the middle, I added a new Snowflake Trinket (yep – coming on 1 Nov) with a Glue Dot.

I stamped a Christmas Traditions sentiment in Petal Pink on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the Christmas Traditions punch (this – along with the stamp set and a Call Me Clover and Real Red Ink Spot are all inside the pretty Christmas Traditions Punch Box!).

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dinensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Christmas Traditions sentiment in Petal Pink to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some snowflakes from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Petal Pink on the front…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Tufted Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila! Clean and simple really makes a statement with the Snowfall Thinlits taking center stage.  Don’t miss the Christmas Traditions Punch Box, either, y’all!  It’s one of the first things in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and might be easy to miss!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!
