Stampin’ Up! Bright Baubles Time of Giving Disappearing Nine Patch Christmas Card

Happy happy HAAAAWMMMP Day.  And….happy Wednesday-before-Thanksgiving-Eve!  Yes.  A week from tomorrow you’d best have that turkey thawed!  Do NOT wait until next Tuesday.  Trust me on this – you’ll be Googling “how to thaw my frozen turkey two days before Thanksgiving.”

Ask me how I know this. 😉

My card today is a fun one (I think!).  I saw this Disappearing Nine Patch technique on SplitCoast Stampers and wanted to give it a go.  So…I picked my fave DSP – the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  And I combined it with the Bright Baubles set – for the sentiment – and the Time of Giving Bundle for a cute tag!  Take a look see:

I was playing along with the Inspired By challenges…

And I selected many of the design elements based on the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I got Gift – Non Traditional Holiday Colors – Patterned Paper.  And Holiday – Silver/Gold – Patterned Paper! 🙂

I followed the instructions that Betty Traciak gave on her SCS tutorial – first cutting 9 1″ squares of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP and adhering them to a 3″ x 3″ square of Foam Adhesive Sheet (I decided to use that instead of an Adhesive Sheet).

Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut the square in half – and then cut each half in half.

I re-arranged the squares and adhered them to a 3″ x 3″ square of cardstock.  Then I trimmed the whole thing down to a 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ square with my Trimmer.  And…totally didn’t take a picture of this stage.  Sorry! 🙁

I wrapped two lengths of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the square – securing it in the back with Glue Dots – to look like a wrapped present.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Blushing Bride mat.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the gift to a Basic White panel and stamped the Bright Baubles sentiment in Misty Moonlight.   Then I matted the panel on a Blushing Bride mat to create the card front.

I used a Tailored Made Tag – with the Gift Giving die centered in it – to cut a Shimmery White cardstock tag.  Then I used the same Tailor Made Tag to cut a solid Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP tag.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed Shimmery White tag to the solid Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP tag – then I adhered it to the top of the gift with Liquid Glue.

I tied a fancy bow from the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it over the top of the tag with a Glue Dot.

I added some small Blue Adhesive-backed Gems and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped a Time of Giving sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  In the corners, in stamped-off-once Blushing Bride, I added the stylized snowflake image from Time of Giving.  I added some Blue Adhesive-backed Gems in the middles of the snowflakes.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once Blushing Bride snowflakes from Time of Giving on the front..

…and more Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how that Disappearing Nine Patch technique worked to make my “gift” from Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP, don’t you?  I hope you’ll give it a go.  Bright Baubles has lots of fun sentiments, but I really like the size and font on this one that I used on the front.  I am also really loving how the Tailor Made Tags dies work so perfectly with the Gift Giving tags – the die set bundled with Time of Giving!  Such fun – and so handy as we head into the holidays!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Sneak Peek Birthday Card from OnStage 2021!

Good morning!  Whew!  OnStage 2021 was awesome!  We got to see all sorts of new goodies coming in January in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  They had the usual stamping demonstrations and…a fun “stamp off” between Stampin’ Up! Concept Artists – that they ran like those Baking competitions on TV!  AND – they told us that next year’s event will be LIVE (vs virtual) and it’s going to be in Vienna, Austria! 😳😳😳

Vienna has been on my “list of places to go” since…I read Marguerite Henry’s The White Stallion of Lipizza a hundred years ago!  And since I am now owned by Haflingers (of AUSTRIAN descent!)…seems like it’s time! Fingers, toes and eyes crossed – I would LOVE to be able to go there!

As always, we did some projects during the event – and we used the new Blessings of Home stamp set with the bundled Flowers of Home dies and the gorgeous Heart & Home DSP – all of which you’ll be able to get in January (or…on 1 Dec as a Demonstrator!).  Take a look-see:

This is pretty close to the planned project – I changed it up a little and gave it a little “bump”!

I started by cutting a piece of Garden Green paper from the Heart & Home DSP and adhered it to the front of my Garden Green card base with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Shimmer White cardstock, I stamped the large floral image in the Blessings of Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight.

I used a Blender Pen to color the flowers and leaves by picking up color from the lid of my Misty Moonlight and Garden Green Stamp Pads.  Like the sample in the event, I only colored the leaves and the two large flowers.

Then I used the matching die in the bundled Flowers of Home die set to cut it out.

For the “boom” factor, I used three foliage dies in Flowers of Home to cut several from Garden Green and a few from gold Metallic Specialty Paper (from the Gold & Rose Gold pack).

I did a dry fit and then used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut foliage directly to the card front to that it would stick out ever-so-artistically from under the die cut flower.

So – the demonstrator/make-along was led by Shannon West from the home office.  She taught us a good trick – especially when you have a lot of layers!

To pop the floral die cut – but…save a little thickness – she showed how to put dimensionals on the back of the die cut above and below where the sentiment would be placed. Like this!

Then you run a line of Stampin Seal down the middle.  That pops the top and bottom up – but sticks the middle down!  Great idea!

So…using the Dimensionals and Seal, I adhered the die cut over top of the adhered foliage.

I stamped the Blessings of Home sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a strip of Shimmery White cardstock.

I ran a little Stampin’ Seal across the die cut flowers and used it to adhere a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (part of this Suite and coming in January!).  Then I popped the sentiment over the top with Dimensionals.

I adhered some white Classic Matte Dots (new catalog goody!) here and there.  Then I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Bumble Bee Trinket on the flower (this wasn’t part of the sample, but…come on!  It was NECESSARY!) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the smaller floral from Blessings of Home in Misty Moonlight in the corner of a Shimmery White cardstock panel.  I used the Blender Pen and ink from the lids of my Misty Moonlight and Garden Green ink pads to color the flower.  I added a few more of the white Classic Matte Dots.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the Garden Green card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the small Blessings of Home floral on the front…

…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think this Blessings of Home stamp set and bundled Flowers of Home dies, with the gorgeous Heart & Home DSP is going to be a big winner in the new catalog!  And…hint hint…there’s more in the Suite!  And…I may or may not (I totally DID!) have hit the get-it-here-lickety-split button when I ordered it on Friday (another demonstrator-who-attended-OnStage perk!)…so…it should arrive on Monday!  I’ll share as quick as I get it – I know you’ll love it!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsy & Wonder Joy Fold Gift Card Holder with Video Tutorial

Well – good morning, it’s Friday again!  House cleaning day (whoo-hoo!) and Day 1 of OnStage!  Last night was fun and we saw a lot of Top Performers recognized for their achievements this year!  🙂

And speaking of…I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to ALL of you!!  I was tickled sideways to find myself at #34 in the Overall Demonstrator ranking in the US for the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! year!!  I owe ALL of that to my amazing customers and Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! 🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻🥰🙏🏻

If you were able to join me yesterday afternoon for my YouTube video, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not – but you’d like to watch the replay and see how to make this fun fold (with a hidden bonus!) – here’s ’tis!

I know.  I know.  HOW many times will I use the Whimsical Trees bundle and pretty Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP this week?!?  I’m sorry (not sorry!).  I just love it – and when I saw the sketch that I used…it was too perfect!  Just to mix it up a little, I DID use the Christmas Season stamp set for the sentiments – and it’s a fun fold.  AND a gift card holder.  So…totally different!  Take a look-see:

And here’s that sketch I was talking about – from the SugarPea Mix It Up challenge for November!

So – I saw the idea of using a Joy Fold card to make a Gift Card Holder somewhere on Facebook.  I carefully saved the post so I could give credit where credit is due but…it’s been disappeared!  🙁  Just know I wasn’t nearly clever enough to come up with this by my ownself!

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock that I scored at 3″ on the long side to make the large card base.  A 3 5/8″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″ on the long side, created the small card base.

I matted some of the snowflake paper from Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on Mint Macaron and adhered them to the front small panel and the large back panel of the large Misty Moonlight card base.

I cut a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP – in silver-foil stripes – and adhered it to the inside of the small card base using Liquid Glue.  I cut a smaller piece and used the scalloped oval in the Double Oval Punch to cut a half-circle out of one long edge.

I used a thin line of Liquid Glue  – right at the very edge! – to adhere that piece to the small card base to create the gift card holder.  Note: I only put glue on the two short sides and the non-punched long side.

I matted a piece of Misty Moonlight Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on Mint Macaron to create the card front for the small card base.

On some Mint Macaron paper from the DSP pack, I stamped the tree image from Whimsical Trees in Mint Macaron.  Using a second stamp in the set, I added Misty Moonlight lights to each of the trees and cut them with the matching die in the bundled Christmas Trees Die set.  I also cut the cool “open” tree die from the same Mint Macaron DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three trees to the small card front.  Then I fussy cut a bunch of Christmas gifts from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  These are “piled” under the trees with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small silver bow from a piece of Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Christmas Season sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink and fussy cut it – roughly following the shape of the words.

I used my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the sentiment, then used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the small card front.

I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and then adhered the card front to the front of the small card base.  Note: the small card base opens OPPOSITE a “normal” card, so make sure you’ve got it oriented correctly! 😉

For the inside of the small card base, I stamped the second Christmas Season sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the Whimsical Trees images in Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight – then I added a medium Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and then adhered it inside the small card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card to the back panel of the larger card base – and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Whimsical Trees images on the front…

…and more of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t overstate how much I love love love the entire Whimsy & Wonder Suite!  The colors in the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP are so much fun for the holidays and the images and die cuts in the Whimsical Trees and bundled Christmas Trees die set are perfect.  I borrowed a couple of the sweet Christmas Season sentiments to just slightly change up my message.  And…yes.  How cool is it to use a Joy Fold card as a Gift Card Holder?!?  🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Frames Pattern Best Year Deer

Well.  Here we are – day one of Standard Time.  I tried to tell myself yesterday that I was SOO happy that it was SORT of light at 7am.  And I believed it.  Sort of.  Until I had to feed in the pitch dark.  At 615pm.  Grrrr.  Hate.  It.  So.  Much!
