Stampin’ Up! Wonderland Blessing for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Happy Christmas Eve!  I know that you’re all busy doing your final get-ready-for-tomorrow things – cooking, wrapping, and some-assembly-required-ing!  Thanks for taking the time to see what we’ve created for you –  I hope that you’ll enjoy my project and then head to everyone’s blog and see what they’ve shared!!

I went pure, straight up this-is-the-night-the-Holy-Child-was-born with my card today.  I pulled some Woodland TIEF, a couple of Lovely as a Tree pines, and the Holy Family themselves from the lovely All Ye Faithful stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Ye Faithful and Every Blessing for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Well, it’s Thursday again – and you know what that means….it’s Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop day, of course!  Once again, the ladies-who-hop have gathered together (sort of virtually….) to bring you some creative projects for your crafty pleasure. I hope that you’ll enjoy what I have to share and then head to everyone’s blog and see what they brought to the party!

Our challenge this week was to use Basic Black, Gold, and Whisper White.


Easy peasy.  Right?  Well….yea.  Sure ’nuff.  Unless, of course, you go to your stash and discover….not a piece….not even a sliver!…of Gold Foil!  I mean – Not. A.  Bit.

Dang it.

What to do?

I thought about begging for a pass – maybe permission to use Silver  – which I have in abundance.

But then I thought – come on, Mare (that’s what I call myself when talking to myself!)…..get a little outside the box, for cryin’ out loud.  There’s nothing says you have to mat in Gold Foil.

So – I didn’t.  I pulled out All Ye Faithful.  I gathered up Every Blessing.  And some Vellum.  And Basic Black card stock.  And my Versamark ink and Gold Stampin’ Powder.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Every Blessing and a Flurry of Wishes for You

We have a grass carp.  Well, probably more than one.  But, in our back pond – there’s just one.  It’s a pretty new pond, you see.  Not a lot of vegetation.  And kind of seasonal.  So we only put one grass carp back there.

Tonight, while the horses were eating, we took a ride down to the back pond.  To check on the grass carp’s welfare.  Please note – we haven’t named the grass carp.  That would be weird.

We noticed a significant lack of….well….grass!  Which immediately caused us consternation and concern.  What to do?  We’re not really sure what a grass carp might eat other than grass.  Maybe some hay?  Some chaff?  Chaff is chopped up hay and a little molasses (our old guy gets that to supplement his other feed).  Perhaps some ragweed?  We gathered up some of each and carefully threw it into the pond.

We don’t want our un-named grass carp to starve.  Obviously.  He’s the only one in the pond.  Do you think he thinks he’s on some barren planet somewhere at the end of a portal (yes, I’ve been watching Marvel – Agents of Shield!)?  Do grass carp think?

It’s not weird to worry about your grass carp.  Right?


Anywho – on to why you stopped by!

I deviated from my normal A2 size card for today’s share.  This one is 5″ x 7″ overall.  I needed that much room to execute the design.  Which was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #292.  Head over there to see what everyone has made, okay?

SSSC 292I used the pretty Every Blessing stamp set – from the Annual Catalog – some flurries of snow from Flurry of Wishes, and a few Lucky Stars!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! O, Come All Ye Faithful!

Happy Thursday!  When you read this, I’ll likely be on my way back to the homestead.  Yeah!  The weather has been lovely here – I’m hoping it’s the same in Atlanta.  Fall-weather in August.  I’ll take it!

My cards have been kind of focused on the soon-to-be-available products from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  How could they not be?  They’re wonderful and fun and beautiful.  And new – new toys ALWAYS get all the attention, don’t they!?  Today’s card is no exception, and it’s a Christmas Card using the Wonderland stamp set and All Ye Faithful.  I also pulled a single element from Every Blessing.  Take a look-see:

O Come on Ye Faithful Outside 1 watermarked

Stampin’ Up! Every Blessing – One Stamp Set, Two Cards

I’ve gotten some feedback from a few folks that indicate that they’d like to see cards that are….simpler.  And take fewer goodies to make.  I completely get that!  When I first started doing this – heck, even today!! – I’d see posts come thru and think “I’ve got to have that stamp set, and another pack of paper, and a punch or two, maybe a Thinlit set, some different ink…”  Usually I’d just buy it – cause I’m weak!  But, just as soon as that package came, I’d see another post with another wonderful card and the cycle would start anew!

So, I decided to try to incorporate some card/stamp combos like that.  Give you some ideas to maximize your return and keep the budget under control!  I’ll try to do it maybe once a week.  What do you think?  Well – maybe I’ll ask that again at the END of this post! 🙂

For this first installment, I’m using a brand new Holiday Stamp set – that you can get on 1 Sept – to make two Christmas cards.  I’ve also used a limited number of tools and accessories.  The stamp set is called Every Blessing – and it’s gorgeous.  It’s three stamps – and I’ve used them all on these cards.  And that’s the only set I needed!  Take a look-see:
