Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Above & Beyond Thank You

Happy Happy Hawmpp Day!  We’re on the downward slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

So – at the retreat last weekend, we did a little “class” on the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique using Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus.  I’d taken my Shaded Summer stamp set and 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to do the demo.  I was pretty happy with the resulting piece of art – so I tossed the panel into my stuff to bring home.  I decided to parlay it into a quick and easy thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Festive & Bright Christmas Card – a Retreat Card!

Hello, y’all – it’s Tuesday!  Tuesday is such a….”meh” kind of day.  It’s not the first day of the week (yuk).  It’s not the last day (yeah!) nor even the day BEFORE the last day (light at the end of the tunnel) and it’s fer sure not HAWWWMP Day!  It’s just…Tuesday.  Another day to slog thru to get to a day with a purpose! 🤷‍♀️

So…maybe this cheery card – brought to us by Sue Prather – that we created over the weekend at our retreat – will give you a little boost and something to be excited about! 🙂  This one uses the flyover Festive & Bright Bundle in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  And some…FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I LOVE FREE paper, don’t you??  Take a look-see at what we did with this Peaceful Prints DSP and the Festive & Bright Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Whimsy Kit Peek!

Good morning and…let me be the first to wish you a very Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Yes!  It’s Wednesday – and….THAT means that I only have two sleeps before I head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen and then head up to the north GA mountains for our Inkin’ Krew Retreat!  I am so excited to see everyone – and I’ve got a couple of ladies who are in my Crittters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team that I’ve never met in person!  Plenty of time on Zoom – but…this’ll be the first time we’re in the same spot!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’ll share pics as I’m able thru the weekend!

Stampin’ Up! recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called Christmas Whimsy.  I ordered it first jump out the gate and when it came….I dove in!  Remember – this is the one I think looks like it come straight outta Who-Ville!!

When I opened it up I found everything – and I do mean….EVERYTHING!…I needed to make eight fun Christmas cards!

THAT is the neat and tidy image from Stampin’ Up!  Here’s my hot mess!

Great job, Mare! 🤦‍♀️

But – I popped all the die cut pieces, folded the two designs of card bases and opened up the instructions.  I decided that at least for this first one, I’d do them exactly as the instructions said.

The instruction sheet is cool – they used pictures to let you know what to do and in what order – and (unlike some picture directions – you know the ones I mean!) – THESE actually WORK!

I mean – they even tell you how many stars or snowflakes to use and where to put the Dimensionals! 👍👍👍

I used the enclosed Night of Navy Ink Spot and the exclusive stamp set to stamp snowflakes and stars on the card bases – and stamp the sentiments.  This is where I DID depart a little – I’m not a huge “Season’s Greetings”  fan so I did them all with Merry Christmas.  But…you can do whichever you prefer – they both fit on the labels perfectly (thanks, Stampin’ Up!).

 

There’s a roll of Gold Trim to use on each design – love the tag “tied” on (in truth it’s got a little Glue Dot and the tag itself is popped on with a couple of dimensionals!).   And there are pretty blue foil snowflakes and stars adhesive-backed sequins to add, too!

The second design also gets a little gold foil star “sticker” added – only hard part here is making sure to get the ladder onto the card front straight so that it doesn’t look like someone is fixin’ to end up in the ER!

There’s even an “inside” sentiment that I used – and added some Night of Navy stamped stars.

I guess Stampin’ Up! has heard me say #nonekkidenvelopes cuz they included some beautiful envelopes with Gold Foil accents.

But…I added some stars to the front, too.  Cuz….I could! 😉

Et Voila!  In the blink of an eye I had eight fun full-sized cards – with insides stamped and ready – and decorated envelopes – all ready to get signed, stamped and mailed!  No cutting (except for the Gold Trim!) required – and the easy instructions make this a PERFECT project for new stampers or kids or….pretty much anyone who needs really cute Christmas cards!  It would be a GREAT activity to do together with family and friends – order a few kits and get to creating! 🙂

I hope you like!

And – this isn’t the ONLY kit that we’ve got available right now!  Check them all out – we’ve got stamping kits and even NON-Stamping kits for you to choose from.  Stop by the online store Kits Collection to pick up your kits!  Don’t forget that the kits are only available while supplies last, so order quick to make sure that you get yours…and pick up some free Sale-a-bration goodies if your order reaches $50!

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Wishes Hand-Penned Petals

Good morning, y’all – did you have a good Labor Day? I ended up getting a lot done – cleaned, sliced and froze a bunch of baby Portabella mushrooms (did you know you could do that!?), bagged and froze the shredded cheese, finished a card tutorial for SplitCoast Stampers, did a Zoom the Craftroom and made a card for today!  So….good day all the way around!

My card is a CAS creation (no – I am fine, thank you for asking!) that features the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, a little foliage from Hand-Penned Petals (2021-2022 Annual Catalog) and…some FREE Beautifully Penned DSP (from the Aug – Sep Sale-a-Bration catalog!).  Take a look-see:
