Stampin’ Up! Wonderland Blessing for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Happy Christmas Eve!  I know that you’re all busy doing your final get-ready-for-tomorrow things – cooking, wrapping, and some-assembly-required-ing!  Thanks for taking the time to see what we’ve created for you –  I hope that you’ll enjoy my project and then head to everyone’s blog and see what they’ve shared!!

I went pure, straight up this-is-the-night-the-Holy-Child-was-born with my card today.  I pulled some Woodland TIEF, a couple of Lovely as a Tree pines, and the Holy Family themselves from the lovely All Ye Faithful stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Ye Faithful and Every Blessing for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Well, it’s Thursday again – and you know what that means….it’s Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop day, of course!  Once again, the ladies-who-hop have gathered together (sort of virtually….) to bring you some creative projects for your crafty pleasure. I hope that you’ll enjoy what I have to share and then head to everyone’s blog and see what they brought to the party!

Our challenge this week was to use Basic Black, Gold, and Whisper White.


Easy peasy.  Right?  Well….yea.  Sure ’nuff.  Unless, of course, you go to your stash and discover….not a piece….not even a sliver!…of Gold Foil!  I mean – Not. A.  Bit.

Dang it.

What to do?

I thought about begging for a pass – maybe permission to use Silver  – which I have in abundance.

But then I thought – come on, Mare (that’s what I call myself when talking to myself!)…..get a little outside the box, for cryin’ out loud.  There’s nothing says you have to mat in Gold Foil.

So – I didn’t.  I pulled out All Ye Faithful.  I gathered up Every Blessing.  And some Vellum.  And Basic Black card stock.  And my Versamark ink and Gold Stampin’ Powder.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Ye Faithful in Black and Rose Red… Wait. What?!?

Good Friday morning, y’all!  Wanted to thank all of you who stopped by our Blog Hop yesterday – I surely hope that you had fun and saw some cool projects and got some ideas to use for your future craftiness! 🙂

I had so much fun doing a non-traditional-color Christmas card yesterday that I decided to do it again.  This card uses the lovely All Ye Faithful stamp set, a couple of TIEFs – Boughs & Berries and Elegant Dots, and….well, that’s really about it!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Peace and Wonderland for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop!


Welcome to the first of our new Happy Stampers Weekly Blog Hops!  Hope that you’ll join us each week to see what we all have to offer.  We have a lot of talented folks in our group and I know that you’re going to be inspired to get crafty with every blog hop you see! 🙂

This week’s blog uses a sketch for inspiration.  This is where we started:

Sketch 1 Blog Hop

Funny story (well, maybe funny – you be the judge.  But, pretend to laugh anyway, okay? I have very delicate feelings) – I was less than prepared for this blog hop.  I needed to provide a “Shortlink” for my fellow hoppers so they could get their blog posts all set up.  And I had to do that early this week.  Well, the way to get a shortlink is to make a blog post and save it and schedule it.  Easy enough – but the TITLE of the blog post has to stay the same once you make it or the shortlink changes and then everything is chaos.  I had to figure out what I was going to make, in order to come up with a title.  But on Monday evening I had no clue.  So, I thought about it for a while and decided I’d make something with the Dove of Peace stamp and the Wonderland stamp set.  I built my title and passed my shortlink on to the other ladies.

I tried to figure out what I was going to do with those two sets and the inspiration sketch.  On top of that, I wanted to incorporate pink into the card, to mark Breast Cancer Awareness and in response to our Happy Stampers challenge for October.  Hmmm….

And then, I remembered Christmas growing up.  My grandparents always had a silvery-flecked, sparkly white-flocked Christmas tree.  And it had pink and silver ornaments and lots and lots of that deadly silver “rain” (my favorite part of the tree!!).  I always loved those Christmas trees – and going with my grandfather to get that tree every year….well, that’s a pretty special memory for me.

And there it was.  White.  Pink.  Christmas Tree.  Take a look-see at how I made Wonderland and Dove of Peace and Pink work for my card!

Stampin’ Up! O, Come All Ye Faithful!

Happy Thursday!  When you read this, I’ll likely be on my way back to the homestead.  Yeah!  The weather has been lovely here – I’m hoping it’s the same in Atlanta.  Fall-weather in August.  I’ll take it!

My cards have been kind of focused on the soon-to-be-available products from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  How could they not be?  They’re wonderful and fun and beautiful.  And new – new toys ALWAYS get all the attention, don’t they!?  Today’s card is no exception, and it’s a Christmas Card using the Wonderland stamp set and All Ye Faithful.  I also pulled a single element from Every Blessing.  Take a look-see:
