Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color challenge to work with 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 am – STILL – working on being sure I have enough Christmas cards (yes, that means I have not MAILED them!) so I pulled out my Tidings & Trimmings bundle and the coordinating Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Sparkle of the Season for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  First off…HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!  I hope that (AFTER you read thru our blog!) that you have a most wonderful day with family and friends and lots of food and….elastic waistbands!! 😉

It’s ALSO Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with 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 decided that it would be a good day to acknowledge that it’s practically Christmas, so I pulled out the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (one of my VERY favorites in the current Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog!) and combined it with some gorgeous Peaceful Place Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch we were all working with!

I also took inspiration from the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week!  I went on the diagonal (Plaid-Wreath-Red); down the left column (Plaid – Layers – Die Cut); and…across the bottom (Die Cut – Sequins/Gsms – Red).  🙂

I started with the diamond-y paper from the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP and I matted it on Evening Evergreen.  Then I took a slightly narrower piece of the plaid Peaceful Place Specialty DSP and adhered it over the top with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock across the “seam” with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Using the dies in the bundled Seasonal Swirls die set, I cut an Evening Evergreen and a Soft Succulent “pine boughs” wreath.  I also cut the star-strewn wreath from a piece of the (shiniest) silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three die cut wreaths in a “stack”.

I tied a small bow from silver Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White, I stamped the Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I snipped banners in each end with Paper Snips – and used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over top.

I cut out six holly leaves – there’s a sweet little die in the Seasonal Swirls Dies that cuts two at a time! – from Evening Evergreen and adhered them around the wreath.

Then I added Cherry Cobbler gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as “berries” for each leaf pair.

I added an Evening Evergreen gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the second sentiment from Sparkle of the Season in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel.  Over top, I added the pine bough from Sparkle of the Season in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent.  Then I added a small Evening Evergreen gem.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got some pine boughs from Sparkle of the Season in Soft Succulent on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! Sparkle of the Season – and the bundled Seasonal Swirls dies – is SUCH a great bundle!  Crossing multiple holidays, with the gorgeous wreath dies – complete with decorations for the wreaths – this will be one of your go-to bundles!  And…there is no denying the subtle, elegant beauty of the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP is there?

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bright Baubles Time of Giving Disappearing Nine Patch Christmas Card

Happy happy HAAAAWMMMP Day.  And….happy Wednesday-before-Thanksgiving-Eve!  Yes.  A week from tomorrow you’d best have that turkey thawed!  Do NOT wait until next Tuesday.  Trust me on this – you’ll be Googling “how to thaw my frozen turkey two days before Thanksgiving.”

Ask me how I know this. 😉

My card today is a fun one (I think!).  I saw this Disappearing Nine Patch technique on SplitCoast Stampers and wanted to give it a go.  So…I picked my fave DSP – the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  And I combined it with the Bright Baubles set – for the sentiment – and the Time of Giving Bundle for a cute tag!  Take a look see:

I was playing along with the Inspired By challenges…

And I selected many of the design elements based on the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I got Gift – Non Traditional Holiday Colors – Patterned Paper.  And Holiday – Silver/Gold – Patterned Paper! 🙂

I followed the instructions that Betty Traciak gave on her SCS tutorial – first cutting 9 1″ squares of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP and adhering them to a 3″ x 3″ square of Foam Adhesive Sheet (I decided to use that instead of an Adhesive Sheet).

Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut the square in half – and then cut each half in half.

I re-arranged the squares and adhered them to a 3″ x 3″ square of cardstock.  Then I trimmed the whole thing down to a 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ square with my Trimmer.  And…totally didn’t take a picture of this stage.  Sorry! 🙁

I wrapped two lengths of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the square – securing it in the back with Glue Dots – to look like a wrapped present.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Blushing Bride mat.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the gift to a Basic White panel and stamped the Bright Baubles sentiment in Misty Moonlight.   Then I matted the panel on a Blushing Bride mat to create the card front.

I used a Tailored Made Tag – with the Gift Giving die centered in it – to cut a Shimmery White cardstock tag.  Then I used the same Tailor Made Tag to cut a solid Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP tag.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed Shimmery White tag to the solid Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP tag – then I adhered it to the top of the gift with Liquid Glue.

I tied a fancy bow from the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it over the top of the tag with a Glue Dot.

I added some small Blue Adhesive-backed Gems and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped a Time of Giving sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  In the corners, in stamped-off-once Blushing Bride, I added the stylized snowflake image from Time of Giving.  I added some Blue Adhesive-backed Gems in the middles of the snowflakes.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once Blushing Bride snowflakes from Time of Giving on the front..

…and more Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how that Disappearing Nine Patch technique worked to make my “gift” from Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP, don’t you?  I hope you’ll give it a go.  Bright Baubles has lots of fun sentiments, but I really like the size and font on this one that I used on the front.  I am also really loving how the Tailor Made Tags dies work so perfectly with the Gift Giving tags – the die set bundled with Time of Giving!  Such fun – and so handy as we head into the holidays!

I hope you like!
