Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Cup of Christmas Cheer!

Happy Friday!  You made it!  Now the weekend-glorious-weekend stretches out ahead of us!  Whoo-hooo!

I’ve made a card today using some of the Holiday goodies for a non-holiday card.  I once again paired the Cup of Christmas bundle with some Annual Catalog sets – this time using Beautiful Friendship and Beautiful Promenade.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And I used The Card Concept inspiration photo, too!

I matted a piece of Blueberry Bushel paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock for the card front.

I created the art on a smaller piece of Whisper White.  First, I cut the cup out of the panel using the die in the Cup Of Cheer Dies – saving the handle cut-out.

Using my Stamparatus, and the beautiful flowers from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set – I built my bouquet.

I stamped the large roses in So Saffron.  Now – the last time I used this set, I made some sticky note masks AND I KEPT THEM IN MY STAMP CASE!! 🙂  So…I masked off the roses, and added the “buds” a couple of times in Daffodil Delight.

I left the mask in place and added some Petal Pink….lilacs? and Pear Pizzazz leaves.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the Blueberry Bushel card front.  And then I adhered the little “chad” to create the handle!

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas cup outline image in Pear Pizzazz.  I added the little floral image (also from Cup of Christmas) in Pear Pizzazz and colored it with my Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.  The sentiment, from Beautiful Promenade, is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.

I cut the cup sentiment out with the Cup of Cheer die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A Blueberry Bushel gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beautiful Promenade in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  I added the Cup of Christmas foliage again – coloring it with my Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a double mat (Daffodil Delight card stock and Blueberry Bushel paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP) then into my Blueberry Bushel card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Cup of Christmas foliage across the front…

…and more of the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is another example of using “Christmas” sets for non-holiday projects!  Which means – you can use the Cup of Christmas Bundle all year long!  The Beautiful Friendship and Beautiful Promenade sets have such gorgeous images and sentiments – they will serve you well, too!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Piggy’s, Hugs and a Cup of Cheer Get Well Card

Hey y’all – you did it!  You made it to Friday!  Take a moment to pat yourselves on the back for getting thru another work week! 😉

I needed a very special – and personalized! – get well card this week.  So…I pulled out a couple three sets – including the Cup of Christmas Bundle from the 2019 Holiday Catalog and the This Little Piggy and Healing Hugs sets from the Annual Catalog.  I paired these up with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting three different patterns from the Come To Gather DSP on Pretty Peacock cardstock and then building the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Healing Hugs, is stamped in Cajun Craze on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end – and edged it with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker.  It’s adhered at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Pretty Peacock and the polka dot cup (in the left-handed configuration – these are cool stamps that you flip over to get a mirror image!).  I cut the cups with the die in the Cup of Cheer set – then fussy cut the white border from the polka dot cup. I colored the leaves and berries on the sentiment mug with my Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.

With the dies in the Cup of Cheer set, I cut some Crushed Curry boughs, and I used the Sprig Punch to cut a few Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I adhered those to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a length of Linen Thread and one of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo pack) to tie a big loose bow that I adhered to the card front – over the leaves – with a Glue Dot.

I popped the two cups on with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it all off, I added some Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack and the card front was done!

Okay – so now comes some fun! 🙂

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from the Healing Hugs set in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Then, in the corner – I added the little pretty piggy from This Little Piggy in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink!  She’s colored with my Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends – the flower is colored with the Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added a pink (Melon Mambo) Noble Peacock Rhinestone by the sentiment and a green (Old Olive) in the middle of the flower.

i used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Miss Piggy on the front…

…and some more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the fun mirror-image stamps in the Cup of Christmas stamp set – they work really well and open up a world of options for your card projects!  And the Cup of Cheer Dies are handy as can be to quickly cut those images out!  As you might guess – the recipient of this card likes…pigs!  So the This Little Piggy set is the perfect fit – as is the Healing Hugs sentiments.  It’s so handy to have so many tools in our “tool chest”!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday, we went over to Alabama to take our taxes to the accountant.  We’ve been going to him since…1992?…so….it’s just what we do.  Kind of an annual rite of passage.

He’s really good about letting us bring Finn – so we’ve taken him each year we’ve had him.

Finn’s always up for a ride.

But – it’s a long ride, so…a guy can only stay “on the edge” for so long…

As the ride progresses he settles in – only getting up again when we stop at the rest area.

NEVER pass up a rest area.  It’s kind of our rule!

We spent the time at the accountant with Finn-y entertaining the receptionist and her daughter.

It’s not easy being adorable – there are fans everywhere!  Old fans and…NEW ones!

They didn’t even KNOW they were fans.

Now they do.

But – that is exhausting work.  And for a Star – it never ends until you’re back in the Limo.

He spent the entire two hour ride home totally sacked out.  To pooped to do much else until the very end of the ride.  He finally did he get up – he was thirsty and hungry (so he ate the rest of the cookies I’d brought along for him) and then….back to snoozing until we made it to the house!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

So – each week, we all build our blog posts early and then provide the shortlinks for all the ladies in the hop (that’s how we make our list that y’all can use to hop around and see everyone’s projects!).  THIS week – and I’m going to use “newly-retired-and-sort-of-flailing-around” brain as my excuse – I looked at our color challenge and then promptly got dumb.  I decided to use a new stamp set, called Cup of Christmas (coming on 4 Sept!!), from the 2019 Holiday Catalog to give you a little Christmas sneak peek – even though the color challenge is about as NON-Christmas-y as you can get without a pretty big stretch.  Take a look-see and…you’ll start to see the difficulty I had! 🙂

…and the color challenge.

Doesn’t really SCREAM Christmas, huh? 😉

I also used a sketch from FabFriday for my layout.

I wanted to show y’all this fun stamp set – called Cup of Christmas – and it’s matching (bundled) Cup of Cheer Dies, which is why it was in my head, I guess.  Here’s what’s so fun – this set represents a new line that SU! is bringing to us – the “Reversibles”.  It has two stamps in it that you can…literally…stamp-clean-turn over on the acrylic block-and stamp the mirror image!  These four images were made using just two stamps in the Cup of Christmas set!  Cool beans, huh? 🙂

Okay – now let’s get to the card, shall we?

I took a Whisper White panel and embossed it in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, cut it down to size and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Garden Green DSP from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack and matted it on Crushed Curry, too.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry – then I cut it out with the left-handed die in the Cup of Cheer Die set (yes, there’s a left-handed and a right-handed die to cut those mirror images!!).  I also cut a solid peppermint candy cane.  From a piece of Blushing Bride – I cut the “striped” candy cane die.

After cutting the cup – I stamped it a few times with the poinsettia image from Cup of Christmas in Tuxedo Black – then I colored the flowers with my Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added some doodle-dots around the flowers and sentiment with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the two candy cane die cuts together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue – then I popped the cup over with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the “whipped cream” – I used new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (coming in the new catty on 4 Sept) and built up some puffy whipped cream.  Then I added a little of the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and sprinkled it with some new Ice Stampin’ Glitter (both also new and available on 4 Sept).

I adhered a short length of new Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (availa 4 Sept) to the cup with Liquid Glue.  The embellishment is two Garden Green holly leaves cut with a die in the Cup of Cheer set – and another poinsettia in Blushing Bride – cut with its matching die.

I tied a little bow from some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, on a Whisper White panel, I stamped a second Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry and a line of little holly leaves in Garden Green.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Cup of Christmas holly on the front…

…and some Garden Green DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this Cup of Christmas stamp set – those Reversibles are FUN!! – and the matching Cup of Cheer dies, don’t you?  I think they’re really going to be a heckuvan addition to your Christmas card tool box!  I hope you like!
