Stampin’ Up! Endlessly Foxy Peaceful Pines

Mornin’, everybody!  Hope your week is going well, and that you’ve taken advantage of the 25% off savings for the World Card Making Day special from Stampin’ Up!

I did another quick and easy card for today.  I’ll admit that I haven’t been feeling too awfully good these past 3 or 4 days.  Apparently, the “oh, sinus infections are typically not contagious” sinus infection that Wayne came home with is…a least a little bit…contagious!  I personally think it’s a head-cold-gone-bad, but…he’s insisting that I go to the doctor.  So when you read this, I’ll be on my way to let them tell me I have a head cold.

Maybe they won’t tell me to not be such a baby! That would be pretty sucky bedside manner, huh? 😉

So, when my teeth finally quit hurting and I was able to rouse from my fugue state in the recliner on Monday, I’d already been designing a card in my head while I “watched tv”.  It had some Perfect Pines and a fun little Foxy Friends dude in it.  And that’s actually how it ended up, too!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Snow Friends & Candy Canes for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. We’ve got a sketch challenge for you this week – and there’s no telling what we’ll see!  I hope you’ll check out all the projects from the ladies-who-hop…

So, here’s the sketch for this week!

This past weekend, at Amy Koenders’ business meeting, we all got to pick a “prize”.  Gift?  Amy put all our names in a hat and drew them out, then we got to go into the goody room and pick from several bundles-o’-fun.  Since I’ve taken my cue from my SU! “mom” (Amy), I had almost everything on the table!  Yikes!  But – I didn’t have the Snow Place stamp set and its matching Framelits called Snow Friends.  

So…I snagged it up!  For this sketch, I combined it with some Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Endless Thanks stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Oh, yea – I also turned the sketch on it’s side.  Sorry – forgot to mention that!

I started with a Crumb Cake design from the Candy Cane Lane DSP (hey – this is one of the DSPs that’s in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free sale starting on Saturday!), and I matted it on Real Red.  Then I wrapped a piece of the new Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

My center artwork started with a Real Red scallop-edge circle, cut with the Circles Layering Framelits. Next came a smaller circle of Crumb Cake. Then I cut a circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper – of a size between the two circles.

Using the Outdoor Adventure Edgelit, I cut across the Glimmer Paper Circle to make a tree-y background and adhered that to the layered circle with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  For the stars, I used the little stars die in the Detailed Santa Thinlits, and cut them from more Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  They’re adhered with dabs of Liquid Glue.

Then it was time to make my snowman!

I stamped the large snowman image in the Snow Place stamp set, in Pool Party ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock, and cut him with the matching die in Snow Friends.

I brushed him all over with Clear Wink of Stella, to make him shimmery.  Across the bottom, I smeared some Liquid Glue, and then dipped it in my Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Using my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, I colored his face (colored over the Pool Party), and then made his nose into a real carrot with some Pumpkin Pie!

He’s dressed with items that all come from the Snow Place stamp set – cut with framelits in the Snow Friends set – no fussy cutting required!  Well, one tiny cut…

Everything is in Real Red, except his ear muffs.  I think he kind of rocks his Pacific Point muffs, don’t you?  His stick arms are in Early Espresso.  The only fussy cut I did was on the buttons.  There’s three buttons that stamp and cut at once – I only wanted two.  So I cut them apart.  But that was it!  Promise!

I adhered everything to him with Liquid Glue, and then adhered him to the card with SNAIL and Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I stamped the little “thanks” from the Endless Thanks stamp set in Real Red on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end.  In lieu of an actual mat, I added a faux mat by edging the banner – pretty thickly! – with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – and that was it!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Endless Thanks in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the small snowman from Snow Place in Pool Party.  I stamped his stick arms in Early Espresso and his ear muff in Pacific Point.  Once again I used the Early Espresso Marker to fix his face, and colored his nose with Pumpkin Pie.

I matted it on Real Red and Whisper White and then SNAILd it into my Real Red card base.  On the front, I SNAILd a Whisper White panel directly to the card base, then popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a second small Snow Place snowman on the front…

…and an envelope flap with some more of the Crumb Cake Candy Cane Lane DSP!

Et Voila!  A snowy scene with uber-friendly snowmen, in a classic Red/Crumb Cake/White color scheme.  I think the expressions on their faces are just so stinkin’ cute, don’t you?  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Endless Thanks This Christmas Pines!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.  My goal – yes, I actually have a goal – is to finish the living room re-arrangement that I started on Friday.

I’ve now officially annexed half of my living room as my craft area.  When Wayne gets home tonight, he’s gonna be….a little surprised. 😉

Now, to be fair, I have a really large living room – so there’s space.  It just doesn’t look like anything you’re likely to see in a design magazine, you know?  And yes – I have an extra bedroom that I could set up in – but…I’m not a fan of being “off in a corner”.  I don’t need quiet to work – I like the television yakking in the background and activity around me.  Keeps me going!

Also – Martha Stewart never comes to visit and it’s my living room.


My card for today depends on texture and a fun fold for its interest.  I made a thank you note, using the Endless Thanks stamp set, adding some This Christmas DSP in a fun drapery fold, some Pretty Pines boughs and some texture from the Pine Bough TIEF.  Take a look-see:

I used a tutorial from the Split Coast Stampers website to make my This Christmas fun fold.  You can check it out right here.

I started by cutting a piece of This Christmas DSP to 7 3/4″ x 3″.  Then I cut the angle, per the tutorial.  I made y’all a template:

Make a mark 1 1/2″ down the right side, and 3″ over from the bottom left corner, and use your trimmer to cut from point to point, to create the angle.

Then use your trimmer or Simply Scored Board to score at 3″, 3 1/2″, 5″ and 6 1/8″.  Make an accordion fold – folding the 3″ as a valley and then alternate mountain and valley.  Use a little SNAIL or Fast Fuse to adhere the folds down to the paper.

I wanted my fold to be card-front sized, so I trimmed the un-folded side to make it be 4″ wide.

For the card front itself, I ran a panel of Garden Green card stock thru my Big Shot in the Pine Bough TIEF.  Then I used SNAIL and Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded This Christmas DSP to the panel.

I ran a length of Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon around the panel, topping it with a length of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim and securing them both in the back with scotch tape.  Over that, I ran some Linen Thread and Garden Green Baker’s Twine.

I stamped my Endless Thanks sentiment in Early Espresso in the unembossed portion of the card front.

For my embellishment, I cut a couple of pine boughs with my Pretty Pines Thinlits in Garden Green and Crumb Cake.  I also cut a small “bow” and some berries from Cherry Cobbler.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the ribbon…

The last little touch was to make a bow from Linen Thread and Garden Green Baker’s Twine, capturing a couple of Mini Pinecones as I tied the bow.  I used a Glue Dot to adhere it over top of the card stock bow.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cut two pine boughs from the corner using my Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Then I used SNAIL and Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my Garden Green mat.  I made sure to get Liquid Glue on each of the little “needles”, to ensure the card stock was thoroughly adhered to the mat.

I SNAIL the liner into my Crumb Cake card base and added the card front with SNAIL as well, and the card was done!

On my Crumb Cake Medium Envelope, I used the two Very Vanilla pine boughs that I’d cut from the inner liner, and adhered them with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to the front…

…and added some more of the sheet music from This Christmas to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Sorry to keep using this piney set, but… I really love it!  And, I think it really shows that the same bundle can make so very many different kinds of “looks”, don’t you?!  Hope you like! 🙂
