Stampin’ Up! Pines and Large Numbers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s a color week for the last week – and last Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! – of 2017! Can you even believe it!?  Be sure to check out all the ladies’ projects before we slide into 2018, won’t you?  

Here’s the color scheme we’re working with today:

I went pretty obvious for the week of the year we’re in.  Yup!  New Years.  I used some Large Number Framelits and a few Christmas Happiness/Pretty Pines to celebrate the arrival of 2018!  And…there’s another little sneak peek of the Celebrate You Thinlits – a free goody when Sale-A-Bration starts next week!  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Copper Foil and cut the four numbers from the Large Numbers Framelits – making sure to hang on to the cut out pieces.

I laid the cut panel into my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF – and added the little cut out pieces, too – and then embossed the whole thing.  I used Fast Fuse and Liquid Glue to adhere the cut and embossed panel to a Whisper White mat.

I cut more numbers from some Thick Whisper White card stock – three more of each number, to be exact.  Then I made stacks with Liquid Glue and glued the stacked numbers back into their spots.  Then I used more Liquid Glue to add the little cut out pieces back into their spaces.

Using the Celebrate die from the Celebrate You Thinlits (available on 3 Jan), I cut the sentiment from some Silver Foil and adhered it over the numbers with little bits of Liquid Glue.

To decorate the card, I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut some pine boughs, a pine cone and some berries from Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White card stock.  For the Silver Glimmer pine cone, I adhered it to a scrap of Whisper White with Liquid Glue and fussy cut it.  

I looped a short length of Silver Mini Sequin Trim around, sticking it on with Liquid Glue, then I added the Pretty Pines die cuts over top.

I made a Billie Moan bow with some new Silver Baker’s Twine (get it on 3 Jan) and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used Smoky Slate ink – stamped off once – to add a Christmas Happiness pine bough in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp a sentiment from the Season of Whimsy Host stamp set (available right now – but…only for a few more days!) in Versamark.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few stamped off once or twice Smoky Slate pine boughs from Christmas Happiness…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  Large Numbers Framelits and Pretty Pines in mixed metals to welcome the new year!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Season of Whimsy & Pines for the Stamp Ink Paper #129

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and another fun challenge from Stamp Ink Paper!  

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #129 this week is a color challenge…

I pulled out the fun Host set called Season of Whimsy from the 2017 Holiday Catalog for this one and added some pine boughs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

This card also played along quite nicely with the FabFriday challenge this week.

I started this one with a piece of gold plaid paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP matted on Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  Then I cut a piece of Wood Textures DSP, matted it on Cherry Cobbler and Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add the sentiment from the Season of Whimsy set in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

On a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock, I stamped the three Season of Whimsy ornaments in Versamark and heat embossed them in Gold.  Then I colored each of them with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut them.

I cut a bunch of Pretty Pines Thinlits pine boughs in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green, and a couple of Cherry Cobbler berries, too!

I built my little “scene” by adhering the pine boughs with Liquid Glue and interspersing the Season of Whimsy ornaments amongst them.  I used a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the final largest ornament.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish things off, I added a few gold Metallic Enamel Shapes!

On the inside, I left the liner blank, simply repeating the layers on the front of the card.  I matted a piece of Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on Cherry Cobbler and, over that, Fast Fuse’d a Cherry Cobbler matted piece of Whisper White.

I Fast Fuse’d the layered panels into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Gold embossed ornament from Season of Whimsy on the front – colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker…

…and a little more of the Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  A couple of greens and some Cherry Cobbler to make a wonderful Pretty Pine-filled display of Christmas ornaments courtesy of the Season of Whimsy stamp set!  I hope you like!

Season of Whimsy is on the retiring list – so, if you love it (and why wouldn’t you??) – now’s the time to get it.  Holler at me and ask me how! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix  

So – one of the fun things that happened to the Man this past weekend was meeting Lucky.  

Lucky lives there in North Carolina.  

Lucky and Finn hit it off immediately!  Of course, Lucky may have wished Finn had a smidge less energy – he was a bit worn out by the time the play date ended.

Hard to imagine….

really…

…airs above the ground…


 

This kind of play takes a toll, people.  Even on a youngster Aussie!

He said a fond adieu to Lucky and I think they made tentative plans for a re-match in the near future!  And then he climbed in the truck to recuperate!

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Whimsy

Happy Monday, y’all – not even an oxymoron today!  I don’t have to work – so I hope I’m still asleep when this hits your inbox!  As I write it on Sunday night, I’m still pumped up from sharing this Christmas card with some of you on my Facebook Live video last night.  And – I think I’m getting used to the altitude, so…I’m not dragging as bad as I have been.  Whoo-hoo!! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night, I surely do appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, here’s the link to the video on YouTube, in case you want to take a look.  

I used several stamp sets for this one – the Carols of Christmas, a little of the Host-Exclusive Seasons of Whimsy set and one of my very favorites – Christmas Happiness.  All of these wonderful stamp sets are showcased on the pretty Merry Music Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

To begin, I stamped the pine bough from the Christmas Happiness set twice in Garden Green on the top of a piece of Merry Music Specialty DSP.  It was a coincidence that I used the music from Deck the Halls!

Or…was it?!? 😉

I also added some lights from Christmas Happiness – I stamped them in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored them with my new Stampin’ Blend markers (coming soon – but we don’t know when!!) in Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight (so – yes, you could use Stampin’ Write Markers, too!).

I heat embossed the sentiment, from Carols of Christmas, in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it positioned where I wanted it.  Then, I cut two medium length pine boughs from Lemon Lime Twist card stock, using the dies in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, and adhered them over the stamped boughs with Liquid Glue.  At this point, I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat.

For the Season of Whimsy ornaments, I stamped all three in Versamark on some Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  Then I fussy cut them and colored them with my Pool Party and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend Markers.

 

Using Glue Dots, I “strung” some Silver Mini-Sequin Trim in my pine boughs, then I adhered the two Pool Party ornaments with Liquid Glue and popped the third on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a bow in Night of Navy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I also adhered the tails of the ribbon with Glue Dots – to keep them where I wanted them.  I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top ornament and the card front was done!

On the inside, I heat embossed two more ornaments from Season of Whimsy in Silver on a Whisper White mat and colored them with my Pool Party and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Silver embossed Pool Party Season of Whimsy ornament on the front…

…And some strategically chosen Merry Music Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the idea of stamping on sheet music and this pretty Merry Music Specialty DSP lets us do that so easily!  And what better to add than pine boughs and a lovely sentiment?  I think the Carols of Christmas and the Season of Whimsy images are so pretty nestled in the pines from Christmas Happiness!  Hope you like! 🙂
