Stampin’ Up! Christmas Happiness Eclipse Noel

Hey y’all – it’s HAAAWWWMP day!  As I type this on Tuesday evening, I’m thinking about my friends down in Florida – with no power.  Water in places water shouldn’t be.  No water in places it should be.

And that makes me feel pretty darned petty for being pissy cuz we haven’t had power since yesterday.  Waaa….yea.  I’m not proud of it.

We have a generator and lanterns and bottled water.  And we can keep our cold food cold.

So – we have it pretty danged good.  Like I said – not proud.

My card for today – which I kind of am proud of – is an eclipse-technique Christmas card using the Christmas Happiness stamp set and some Large Letters Framelits.  And yes, I had to use a little more plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see.

I played along with this week’s Tic-Tac-Toe challenge – I went right across the center of the “board”.

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock, lined up the Large Letters Framelits that spell “NOEL” and cut them with the Big Shot.

Once they were all cut, I laid the whole panel (including the letters) down on my squishy Silicon Craft Sheet, with two upside down sticky notes – making sure that the cut out letters were being held securely by the sticky notes.  That way they wouldn’t come up when I stamped them with the Christmas Happiness images.

I stamped the pine boughs in Old Olive – twice.  Then I added the small pinecone (outline) in Early Espresso.  Those are finished off with the fill-in image in Soft Suede.  If you make this – be sure to hold the stamps down for an extra beat to help eliminate the “halo” around the cut letters.

I made the raised letters first by cutting each of them two more times in Early Espresso card stock, then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped Whisper White panel (without the letters) onto an Old Olive mat.  When you do this – don’t forget the middle of the “O”!  Then I popped each stacked letter in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card front is a piece of plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP Fast Fuse’d onto an Old Olive mat.  Then I added the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card front three times and secured it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I made a Billie Moan bow and adhered that with a Glue Dot.  I tied a second “regular” bow with three strands of Linen Thread and stuck that over the first bow with another Glue Dot.  It’s finished off with a Real Red dot from the Brights Enamel Shapes.  Adding three more little shapes finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added another Old Olive pine bough and an Early Espresso/Soft Suede pine cone from Christmas Happiness to a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Christmas Happiness pine bough and cone on the front…

…and I added some more of the plaid Christmas Around the World paper to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t help it, y’all!  I love this Christmas Happiness stamp set.  And the plaid paper from Christmas Around the World.  And the eclipse technique.  So…I pretty much had to use them all again – together!!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Finn apparently loves Tropical Storms.

He acts like the driving rain and wind is just a way to get mud and puddles.  And mud puddles.  And mud hills.  And water on the ground (also known as puddles).

He loves mud and puddles.

So he’s spent the last couple of days running thru said mud and puddles.

And we’re going thru towels like crazy.

Which is bad – cuz as I type this on Tuesday evening we still don’t have our power back. So…no laundry!

But – ya gotta dry the dog.

Every.  Single.  Time.  He.  Comes.   In.

Which is a few!  Fortunately, he’s pretty good about it.  

Walks in the back door and stops on the rug.  

Are we doing this, Mom?

It didn’t stop raining, did it!?!?

Stampin’ Up! Around the World to Bethlehem!

Good Monday mornin’, y’all!  I can say that today and it isn’t even an oxymoron!

I won’t be picking up the blackberry (which is actually an iPhone now, but…I’ve been saying “blackberry” for so many years now…15?…that I can’t seem to change) or firing up the work computer.  So…Good Monday!! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks for spending a little bit of your long weekend with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch the replay, here it is!

I used the Night in Bethlehem stamp set and the bundled Bethlehem Edgelits (save 10% when you buy them together!!) and added a little bit of pretty paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP to make my pretty Christmas card.  Take a look-see:

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge at the Global Design Project.

Screen Shot 2017-09-03 at 19.36.37

I started with a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it to a Smoky Slate panel for the card front.  The sentiment, from Night in Bethlehem, is stamped in Pool Party on the Whisper White panel and also matted on Smoky Slate.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I took a Silver Foil Snowflake and cut it into 8 wedges, then used my Grid Paper to help me line them up and adhered them to the back of the sentiment with Liquid Glue.  Be sure the Silver side is up!  The creamy color on the back is pretty and useful, but…not so much on this card! 🙂

Then I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the “cityscape” dies in the Bethlehem Edgelits, I cut one in Silver Foil and one in Basic Gray.  I put a half of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional under each of the end palm trees on the Basic Gray die cut and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

With Liquid Glue, I added the Silver Foil cityscape die cut – making sure that the bottoms lined up.

I wrapped a piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine twice around, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used a Glue Dot to add a silver Year of Cheer star embellishment and a double bow.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished it off!

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

On the inside, I lightly sponged a city scene in Pool Party using the “stencil” that remained from cutting the Bethlehem Edgelit die cut.  Then I added a second Night in Bethlehem sentiment in Pool Party and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I sponged a second city scape in Pool Party…

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and then added a little more Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  This Night in Bethlehem and its matching Bethlehem Edgelits has to be one of my favorite sets in the new Holiday Catalog – I just love it.  I hope you like it, too!!

Don’t miss out on Double Peppermints, y’all!  Not for nuthin’ – if you buy the Night in Bethlehem Clear Bundle and the Christmas Around the World DSP to make this card…boom!  You’ve got enough right there to get those Double Points!  

Just sayin’…
