Stampin’ Up! Quilted Smitten Mittens Gift Box for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Well, it’s darned near Christmas and we’ve got a pretty classic color challenge for you and for the season!  Will everyone go Christmas or…?? Be sure to check out all the projects when you get done here – and see for yourself!  

So, I don’t know about y’all – but my Christmas readiness level is about where it should be.

If it was September! 😦

Which means that quick and easy is high on my list right now.  Thankfully, we’ve got our Mini Pizza Boxes and pretty Quilted Christmas DSP and the Smitten Mittens Bundle (but its retiring so grab it up!) to help.  Take a look-see!

These little beauties are just right for a piece of jewelry, or a gift card, or a cookie (they’re even food safe on the inside!).  So…basically…perfect for all your Christmas packaging.

So…buckle-up, buttercup…you’ll be done in a hot second.

I cut a piece of Gold Foil for a mat and a slightly smaller piece of Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I made a little “present” by wrapping a couple lengths of Cherry Cobbler (yes, not Real Red.  My bad!) 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around it – securing the ends in the back with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped two Cherry Cobbler mittens from the Smitten Mittens stamp set and cut them with their matching dies in the Many Mittens Framelits.  I stamped some ric-rac “trim” across the top in Cherry Cobbler and embossed both mittens with the fun little embossing die in the Framelits.

The snowflakes are cut from some more of the plaid Quilted Christmas DSP with the snowflake die in the Many Mittens set and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a large Gold Faceted Gem on each mitten and adhered the first on with Liquid Glue – sliding it under the ribbon.  On the second mitten, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See that gold Mini Tinsel?  That’s a sneak peek from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog – it comes in the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, paired with a roll of Powder Pink Tinsel.  Pretty!

I tied a double-length bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot, popped the whole thing on the top of my Mini Pizza Box with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals and…done!  Ready to fill with whatever strikes your fancy!  There are so many possibilities with these Mini Pizza Boxes – and I love the little Smitten Mittens tags, don’t you?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home For Mittens!

Happy Saturday, y’all – hoping you’ve emerged from the turkey coma and that your leftovers are leftover no more!

Please mark your calendars for Monday, 27 Nov – all day long – Stampin’ Up! is giving everyone FREE SHIPPING with no minimum order!  And I’ll still have my Double Peppermint Points ordering special going on, too – so it’s a double whammy of good!  Get your wish lists going and think about the folks on your gift list this year, too! 🙂

Perhaps you’ll grab up the Smitten Mittens stamp set or the Hearts Come Home set – both of which lent their creative beauty to my card for today.  Take a look-see:

This layout comes from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started with the fun Marbled Background stamp for the card front.  I inked it up with Marina Mist ink and stamped it off twice – then I stamped a panel of Whisper White (on the third stamp).  It’s matted on Marina Mist card stock with Fast Fuse.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp the sentiment from the Hearts Come Home set in Basic Black Archival Ink.

After stamping the sentiment, I ran the matted panel thru the Big Shot in the Softly Falling TIEF.

See the pretty scalloped ribbon??  That’s Marina Mist 3/8″ Scalloped Velvet Ribbon – and it’s from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  Pretty, huh??  I wrapped a length of it around the panel and secured it in the back with scotch tape.  

I cut three little 1 3/8″ squares of Whisper White for the art.  On two of them, I stamped a little mitten from Smitten Mittens in Marina Mist ink.  Those are matted on Silver Foil scalloped squares, that I cut with my Squares Layering Framelits.

The middle art is the snowflake from Smitten Mittens – heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder – and matted on a Marina Mist scalloped square.  I popped all three on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish it off, I added two silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and a few Black Rhinestone Jewels.

On the inside, I stamped a second Hearts Come Home sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added two small mittens – in stamped-off-twice Marina Mist over the top.  I finished with another Black Rhinestone Jewel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Marina Mist mat and 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 more Smitten Mittens in Marina Mist on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Marina Mist, White, Silver and Black – an elegant color combination and perfect for Smitten Mittens and the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan-Fix

So – I sorta forgot something while I was gone.

Finn is a bit of a chow-hound-beggar dog.

And he loves yoghurt.

Mostly, I think, because the cats love yoghurt.

Anything they love – he loves more!

The other night, I was taking a bath and indulging in some Pumpkin Pie Chobani.

Don’t judge – people drink wine in the tub.  Why not eat yoghurt?!?

Finn – as is his norm – was sound asleep by the door.

Until he heard the scrape-scrape of me reaching the bottom of the tub.

And then….

Let me get it all, Mom…

Wait – there’s some more on this side…

MMMMM….soooooo gooood…

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens and Snowflakes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! This is Color Challenge week and it’s going to be fun to see what everyone comes up with.   Be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!

Our colors this week presented a tiny challenge for me…I brought not one sheet or scrap of Emerald Envy card stock.  Odd, since I brought the ink pad and the Stampin’ Write Marker, but…there you have it!

So, I pulled on my thinking cap (nope – it’s not Emerald Envy either!) and decided I could use some paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP and make a little something with the Smitten Mittens bundle.  Take a look-see:

LOL – not a lot of Emerald Envy, but it you squint and look real close…it’s there! 🙂

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran thru the Big Shot in the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF and matted on a piece of Real Red with Fast Fuse.

The next layer is from the Christmas Around the World DSP – I cut it larger than I wanted and then cut one edge with the long die in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits set.  I adhered that smack over top of the embossed Whisper White panel with Liquid Glue.

I used some more Liquid Glue to adhere a silver Foil Snowflake to the card front.  

For my mittens, I cut out two of them with the dies in the Many Mittens Framelits from Whisper White card stock and ran them both thru the Big Shot in the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF.  I made little “cuffs” with the cutting die in the set – then embossed them with a second die that made the “ribbing” impression.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the mittens.

Using the snowflake die from Swirly Snowflakes, I cut two snowflakes from Red Glimmer Paper.  For the other two, in an effort to get some Emerald Envy into the mix, I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to color a piece of Whisper White card stock, then I cut two more snowflakes – now in Emerald Envy! 🙂

I adhered the snowflakes together and then to the mittens with Liquid Glue.  For the “mitten string”, I tied a bow with some silver Mini Tinsel Trim and adhered the long tails to the back of each mitten with a Glue Dot.

I made the sentiment by inking the word from the Smitten Mitten set directly with my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped a banner in one end, edged the strip with my Emerald Envy Marker and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The mitten on the right is adhered with Liquid Glue directly to the card front and the left is popped over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I finished the card off with a few silver Metallic Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Smitten Mittens in Pool Party ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added two Real Red mittens and a couple of silver heart-shaped Metallic Enamel Shapes.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more Real Red Smitten Mittens on the front – along with a couple silver heart-shaped Metallic Enamel Shapes…

…and I added some more of the Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – I’m a little smitten with this card!  The Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF just makes the Smitten Mittens so cozy and warm, don’t you think??  And the Swirly Snowflakes tie in perfectly.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Warm Fuzzy Smitten Mittens

Well, hey, y’all!  It’s Saturday and I’m at work!  Bleh.

We were hearing the weather might go down today, so…no telling what we’ll accomplish.  Only time – and the weatherman knows.

Okay – the weatherman doesn’t have any more clue than I do, let’s just face it! 😉

But – in light of the fact that they were talking “wintry mix” today – I thought I’d make a card with some warm and fuzzy mittens taking center stage.  So – I pulled out my brand new Smitten Mitten stamp set and the matching Many Mittens Framelits and put one together.  Take a look-see:

I was – sort of loosely – inspired by the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I started with a piece of oh-so-appropriate mitten-covered DSP from the Be Merry DSP pack and Fast Fuse’d it onto a Garden Green mat.  Then I cut a smaller piece (this is actually the design on the back of the first paper!) and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Around the seam, I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Using the little snowflake stamp set in the Smitten Mitten stamp set, I inked it with Versamark and stamped it on a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Once it had cooled, I outlined the image with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen and then sprinkled the glue with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  

Once again, I waited for it to dry completely and then cut it with the matching die in the Many Mittens Framelits set.  While I had the die out, I cut a Silver Foil snowflake as well.  I adhered that one to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the glittery snowflake on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  

For the mittens, I inked up the sentiment mitten from Smitten Mittens in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it on Whisper White.  Then I cut it with its Many Mittens Framelits die.

I cut the detailed mitten from the Cherry Cobbler Be Merry DSP pattern and another solid mitten from Whisper White and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  

I used a Glue Dot on the back of each mitten to adhere a short length of Silver Mini Tinsel Trim to each one and then popped them both on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added a few silver heart Metallic Enamel Shapes to the top of the card front and a silver round Metallic Enamel Shape to the snowflake – and the card was done!

On the inside, I stamped the little hearts image in Cherry Cobbler across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the snowflake – heat embossed in Silver.  A second sentiment from the Smitten Mittens stamp set, in Cherry Cobbler, topped it all off.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base (turns out that when you’re sitting a stone’s throw from the SU! Home Office – Second Day UPS is very fast!! ) popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Smitten Mittens hearts in Cherry Cobbler and some more Silver heat embossed snowflakes on the front…

…and a little more Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Smitten Mittens and the Many Mittens Framelits.  What a cute bundle, heh?  Ever since I got to play with it at our last Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting, I’d been anxiously awaiting its arrival!  And I’m so glad to finally have it in hand.  Hope you like!

And – not for nuthin’ – this cute Be Merry DSP (from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog) is one of the fun papers you can get in the DSP Sale!  Check the deets down below!

Finn-Fan Fix  (you’ll have to settle for re-runs until I get back home to take fresh photos!!)

Today (well – yesterday) I got to see a rare treat.  We’d heard these guys were hanging around the office area – there’s lots and lots of bunnies for their dining pleasure.

Momma….

And one of her two kittens.

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Red Smitten Mittens!

It’s HAWWWWP Day, y’all!!  Man – this week is flying by, isn’t it? Yikes!!

My card for today comes from the fertile mind of my friend Amy – we all got to make this (and one other that I’ll probably share with you next week – I’m stingy that way!) at our team meeting on Sunday.  It uses the uber-cute Smitten Mitten stamp set and the matching Many Mittens Framelits plus a lovely little sentiment from the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Take a look-see:

 

I know – ridiculously cute, isn’t it?  And it was easy to make with the bundled stamp and framelits!

We started with a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Using our Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, we colored the sentiment stamp from Hearts Come Home directly and stamped it in the bottom corner.  Then we ran the panel thru the Big Shot in the Winter Wonder TIEF (note that the folder was offset a little – placing the snowflake over on the side).

Then we matted the panel on a Garden Green panel with Fast Fuse.

To make the mittens, we cut two of the same detailed mitten dies from the Many Mittens Framelits in Real Red and two of the solid mittens in Whisper White.  Then we used Liquid Glue to adhere them together.  I adhered one to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the second one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

We made a small and a large holly leaf, using the stamps in the Smitten Mitten stamp set.  The fill in images are stamped-off-once Garden Green and the outline image in full strength Garden Green.  We also stamped the little berries images – the outline in full-strength Real Red and the fill in with stamped-off-once Real Red.

We cut everything out with their matching dies (handy little framelit set!!) and then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue to the mittens and popped the berries over with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  The bow is from Jute Twine – we wanted thicker than Linen Thread but not as thick as Jute Twine.  So…we pulled the three strands of the Jute Twine apart and used just one!  It’s adhered with a Glue Dot.

I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and the card front was done!

On the inside, we stamped a sentiment from Smitten Mittens in Real Red on a Whisper White panel, then added a couple of small mittens in Garden Green.

We Fast Fuse’d the panel into our Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another pair of Garden Green Smitten Mittens mittens on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How cute is this stamp set??  I love the cozy mittens that you can whip up with a couple of dies and some card stock, don’t you!?  And the Winter Wonder TIEF added just the perfect touch of texture.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

When your parents are watching a movie, you sometimes have to entertain yourself.

It’s the life of a dog, I suppose.

Fortunately, Finn is a pretty good self-player.

And he’s got tons of toys to help him out.

The bright green bumper was the toy du jour this day!  Check the “hands”.
