Stampin’ Up! Window Wishes Holiday Card – Simple and Quick Stamping!

The Window Wishes Stamp Set and a few embellishments were used to create this simple and quick Christmas card. The Balmy Blue combined with Early Espresso make for a dreamy looking card! If you’re looking for a quick card that you can make multiples of, this card design can be massed produced in no time at all!

On a white panel, I stamped the two snow hills in Balmy Blue ink. The tree and sentiments were added to the panel using Early Espresso ink. I then stamped the house in blue and the roof in Early Espresso. I purposely left a gap between the house and roof to give the impression of trim on the house, but you can definitely line these stamps up to meet if you’d like. Snow was repeatedly stamped around the images using Balmy Blue ink.

The inside panel was stamped with an additional sentiment, and I stamped another tree and snow on this panel as well before adding the panel to the inside of the card. The same images were repeated on the envelope front and envelope flap.

To finish off the card I tied a small bow using Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and placed the bow to the left of the sentiment on the lower portion of the card front. The tree was decorated with Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Quick and easy! I just love the contrast between the Balmy Blue and Early Espresso.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Glimmer Christmas Card

I pulled out the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, Labels Aglow Dies, Real Red & White 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and my Layering Circles Dies to create this simple Christmas Card full of sparkle!

Using the large, detailed circle die from the Labels Aglow Dies set I die cut a panel in Very Vanilla cardstock. This panel was then adhered to a slightly larger panel of Real Red Glimmer Paper, then this unit was adhered to the card front.

A circle was die cut using the small circle die from the Labels Aglow Dies set in Real Red Glimmer paper. A second circle was die cut from Very Vanilla cardstock by combining the second to smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies set and the large snowflake die from the Labels Aglow Dies set to create a snowflake pattern within the circle. The Very Vanilla circle was adhered to the Real Red Glimmer Paper circle and this unit was added to the center of the card front. So far there is LOTS of sparkle going on!

A sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set was stamped onto a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and I used the narrow label die from the Labels Aglow Dies set to die cut. The sentiment label was adhered to a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper, and I used my snips to trim around the sentiment label, leaving a narrow border of the Glimmer Paper showing. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, and placed just below the detailed die cut area of the card.

For the inside of the card, I stamped an additional sentiment and again used the larger snowflake die from the Labels Aglow Dies set to die cut a snowflake onto the lower right corner of the panel. This panel was adhered to a mat in Real Red, then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

A piece of Real Red Glimmer Paper was added to the envelope flap and the excess trimmed away from the flap. A bow in Very Vanilla and Gold Satin Edged Ribbon and some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the card front to finish off the card.

The Very Vanilla combined with the Real Red Glimmer Paper makes for an elegant looking card! This card would be stunning by swapping out the Very Vanilla cardstock for Evening Evergreen or Night of Navy and using the White Glimmer Paper instead of the Red.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Thinking of You Card

The Sending Smiles Stamp Set and Sending Dies combined with the texture that the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder provides makes for a cheerful and uplifting card!

I started with a Thick Basic White cardstock card base. A Basic White panel was embossed using the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder and this panel was adhered to a Real Red mat, then this unit was adhered to the card front.

Using scraps of white cardstock I stamped multiple flowers in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red inks and multiple flower stems were stamped in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.

The large “Sending” sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut using the coordinating die from the Sending Dies set. The sentiment label was adhered to the top left of the embossed panel. The flowers were adhered to their stems, and I played around with the arrangement of the flowers on the card front. Once I was satisfied with the arrangement, I adhered the flowers to the embossed panel. One of the Daisey flowers was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The additional sentiment “Sunshine to brighten your day” was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut using the coordinating die from the Sending Dies set. The sentiment label was adhered over the flower stems at the bottom right of the embossed panel.

The smaller flowers and their stems were stamped on the inside panel as well as the envelope front. I used the multi-flower stamp to stamp these smaller flowers across the envelope flap to finish off the card.

I love the cheerfulness and upbeat feel of the images in the Sending Smiles Set!

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Holiday Card

Happy Friday! It has been windy and rainy here on the east coast for most of the week with some almost winter-like temperatures! I’m ready to return to Fall weather now…thank you very much!

I can’t stop creating cards using the Kindest Gnomes Stamp Set, Gnomes Dies and Storybook Gnomes 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! The images are so cheerful and fun to play with!

Several techniques were used to create today’s card – some fussy cutting and ink blending. While Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point aren’t traditional Christmas colors, they sure do create a beautiful winter scene!

I started off with a card base in Pool Party, followed by a mat in Coastal Cabana. A piece of the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper in a Pacific Point snowflake pattern was used for the sky and adhered to the card front. A piece of white glimmer paper was used as a snowbank, and a snowbank was hand cut and adhered to the card front. A number of Christmas trees were cut from one of the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper pack as well as a moose and fox.

Fussy cut Christmas trees were adhered to the card front and the bottoms of the trees were tucked under the snowbank. Using the Gnomes Dies, I die cut and assembled the pieces for the gnome and adhered the gnome to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A fussy cut moose and fox were also added to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A portion of the fussy cut fox was glued where the fox overlapped with the gnome.

A sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes Stamp Set was used on the sentiment label and the label was matted with a piece of Pool Party cardstock and adhered to the top left of the card front. A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the card front to complete the front of the card.

Using a piece of scrap paper, I cut another snowbank and used the negative piece of this scrap paper as a mask and blended pool party ink on the bottom of the inside white panel and the bottom of the envelope front. Two additional fussy cut Christmas trees were added to the snowbank for the inside panel. This panel was then adhered to a Coastal Cabana mat, then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

I finished off the envelope by adding a piece of coordinating DSP to the envelope flap and this completes the card! How fun is this winter scene? I highly recommend that you grab this suite of products to create your own fun cards!

Use the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set and Celebrations Tag Dies along with the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to create a quick and simple birthday card!

The 2022-2024 In Colors go great together! I started with a card base in Parakeet Party and added a panel in a Sweet Sorbet polka dot pattern to the card front. Several balloons were stamped across the top of a white panel in Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet inks, and then a band of Starry Sky DSP was added across the panel.

A sentiment from the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut using the label die in the Celebrations Tag Dies set. The sentiment label was matted with a piece of Parakeet Party cardstock and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A double bow was tied using a Parakeet Party twine from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine pack and adhered to the left of the sentiment label.

An additional greeting and two balloons were stamped on the inside panel and the panel was adhered to the inside of the card. Balloons were also stamped on the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was added to the envelope flap.

Easy and quick! You can watch a Facebook Live card demonstration on Inky Bee Stamper’s page at 1 pm Eastern today.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You Card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Using the Two-Timing Technique

A team member recently shared this card on our team Facebook page (thank you Jan!).  This card is a CASE of a card that Tami White (stampwithtami.com) shared in a YouTube video some time ago.  I thought the card was so lovely that I just had to recreate it!

Below is this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This is my first time entering this challenge! For the challenge I selected the center row down – Orange/Rust, Free, and Layers.

I do not own the stamp set that was originally used in Tami White’s card, but I dug through my sets and pulled out the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set. This card uses the Two-Timing Technique, and minimal supplies! This would make a great card for almost any occasion and would be suitable for both male and female.

I started by temporarily adhering a Very Vanilla panel measuring 4-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ to a larger Very Vanilla panel measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″. The smaller panel was placed approximately 1″ from the top of the larger panel. I used the tree image and stamped across both of the panels in Early Espresso ink, making sure that the image extended onto the larger panel at the top.

The panels were separated, and I adhered the larger Very Vanilla panel to a card base cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Using the small, dotted stamp from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set, I repeatedly stamped Daffodil Delight ink around the tree then tapered the stamping off to the right of the tree to give the impression of leaves blowing in the wind. I repeated this process two more times using Pumpkin Pie ink and Cherry Cobbler ink.

The stamped panel was adhered to a Cherry Cobbler mat, then this unit was adhered to the card front while making sure that the tree image on the two panels was lined up. I just love the Two-Timing Technique! It creates such visual interest!

A “Thank you” sentiment was stamped onto the lower right of the card front in Early Espresso ink and several Rustic Metallic Dots were added to either side of this sentiment.

For the inside panel I repeated stamping of the tree and leaves and adhered this panel to the inside of the card. The same stamping was applied to the envelope front and envelope flap.

Have a wonderful week!

Stampin’ Up Cup of Tea Easy Sidestep Christmas Card

The fold for this card was CASE’d from Julie Davison. Thank you for this great fun fold, Julie! This Easy Sidestep card is great for showcasing die cuts…especially a pretty teacup decorated with winter greenery! And there are no complicated card cuts!

Because this card is a fun fold card, I have entered it in the Creative Creases Challenge.

This card consists of a card base piece and the sidestep piece. I started off by cutting and scoring these two pieces in Garden Green. Next, I cut all of the DSP pieces using paper from the Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper.

The DSP pieces were adhered to the card base and the sidestep, except for the piece of DSP adhered to the back of the card base. This will be adhered after the card is assembled. The sidestep was adhered to the card base.

A sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of scrap Basic White cardstock and die cut using a circle from the Layering Circles Dies. An additional circle was die cut in Garden Green cardstock using one of the scalloped circles from the same set. The sentiment label was adhered to its Garden Green mat.

The teacup die from the Teacup Dies set was traced onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and I stamped the pine bough from the Christmas Banners stamp set onto the teacup. The traced line helped me decide where to stamp. Two holly leaves and holly berries were also stamped. The stamped images were die cut using coordinating dies and I also die cut two pine boughs and a sprig from the Christmas Banners Dies.

It’s time to decorate our card front. The holly leaves and berries were adhered to the tea cup, then adhered to the sidestep using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The two pine boughs and sprig were tucked into the teamcup top and adhered to the sidestep.

The sentiment label was adhered to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Garden Green bow above the sentiment label and adhered several Opal Rounds to the card front.

For the envelope, I stamped several pine boughs in the lower front corners of the envelope and adhered a coordinating piece of DSP to the envelope flap then fussy cut around the flap to finish off the envelope. This completes today’s card!

I love a sidestep card for showing off die cuts. The possibilities are endless! This card would look great showing off a pretty die cut Christmas tree, or flowers. And the finished card makes a great display piece. I hope you’ll give this card a try as it’s so easy to pull together and fun to decorate!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Scottie Holiday Card

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed a great weekend. We had some really awesome weather here on the east coast with blue skies and perfect temps!

Who can resist a cute little dog with a pretty red bow? Not me! As soon as I saw the Christmas Scottie Bundle in the catalog, I knew I had to have it! And since I’m a Westie mom, this cute Scottie may become a Westie on a future card!

My card today primarily involves stamping, punching of the Scottie and bow, and adhering the layers to the card…that’s it! You can make this card in minutes.

I started by second-generation stamping snowflakes in Balmy Blue on the white panel, then stamping the long ribbon in Real Red ink around the perimeter of the panel. Next the sentiment was stamped directly onto the white panel. The Scottie and bow were stamped and punched using the coordinating Scottie Dog Punch. The bow was adhered to the Scottie then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals, to adhere the dog to the panel. The white panel was adhered to its Real Red mat, then this unit was adhered to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped an additional greeting and second generation stamped snowflakes around the perimeter of the white panel. The panel was adhered to it’s Real Red mat and then adhered to the inside of the card.

To finish up I stamped snowflakes on the envelope front and envelope flap and added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

It doesn’t get any easier than this! I hope you’ll give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute Pop-Up Halloween Card

The Scary Cute Stamp Set and Scary Silhouettes Dies were used to create today’s card. I made a pop-up card several weeks ago and chose to use the same fun fold on this card. What’s better than having scary images pop-up at you than in a Halloween card!

I started with a Gray Granite card base. I used a piece of the Black & White Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in a zig-zag pattern and colored the white areas in Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie and Highland Heather. I could have left the paper black and white, but I wanted a pop of color. This panel was adhered to the card front.

Using the Scary Silhouettes Dies I die cut a frame with branches from Basic Black cardstock, then cut a solid panel using just the rectangular die. These pieces became the sentiment label. The sentiment “Halloween Happiness” was stamped on the Gorgeous Grape die cut rectangle in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The rectangle and its frame were glued together and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I created the backdrop panel and used Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Gorgeous Grape and Starry Sky inks and blended an evening sky onto the white panel using blending brushes. This panel was glued to the backside of the card front (when the card is open, this would be the top card base panel).

Two strips of white cardstock were blended with Daffodil Delight and were then glued onto the top and front of the pop-up mechansim. I could have used Daffodil Delight cardstock for this but I wanted the yellow to appear seamless with the yellow sky of the large backdrop panel.

The haunted house, bats and cat were all die cut in Basic Black cardstock using the Scary Silhouettes Dies. I also die cut a branch and some greenery from the Harvest Dies in black cardstock. The branch becomes a tree and the greenery becomes a bush!

The yellow strips were glued to the top and front of the pop-up mechanism and the pop-up mechanism was glued into place at the 5-1/2″ score line and adhered to both inside panels of the card base. The haunted house, tree, bats and moon were all adhered to the large ink blended panel. The cat and shrub pieces were adhered to the front of the pop-up mechanism. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock to the width of the card and with a pair of snips, cut a hill and adhered this to the front of the pop-up mechanism as well.

A sentiment for the inside of the card was stamped onto a white panel, along with several bats, then matted to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock then adhered to the inside of the card.

To finish off the card, a large loopy bow was tied using the Black & White Gingham Ribbon and adhered to the card front, just under the sentiment label. I also used several purple Glossy Dots on the card front. The envelope front was decorated with bats stamped in Memento ink and the envelope flap was decorated with a coordinating piece of DSP.

This is such a fun set to play with! If you have young children or grandchildren, they would love to receive and display this card! I hope you give it a try!

Stampin’ Up Wonderful World Sympathy Card

I used the Wonderful World BundleWonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – to create today’s card. The Wonderful World stamp set, and paper makes a pretty, quick and easy card that would also be suitable as a birthday card or thinking of you card.

The Wonderful World Bundle is available as a free item with any qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration which is going on now through August 31. Don’t delay grabbing this bundle for yourself, though, as Sale-A-Bration items are selling out! The Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes and the Tree Lot Dies are sold out! [Stampin’ Up! has just added some more free products that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration, though. Be sure to read through to the end for info about those items.]

I started with a card base in Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered a panel of the beautiful Wonderful World DSP to the card front, followed by a coordinating strip of DSP to the left edge. A panel of Pear Pizzazz was die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies and a length of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was adhered horizontally across the bottom of the die cut panel. This panel was then adhered to the center of the card front.

From the large flower print Wonderful World DSP I fussy cut one of the white flowers and adhered the flower to the Pear Pizzazz panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A sentiment label was added in white cardstock with a Mossy Meadow mat using the Label Me Lovely Punch. The sentiment I used came from the Eden’s Garden Stamp Set and was stamped in Mossy Meadow. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow tied from the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was added to the left of the sentiment label and several Brushed Brass Butterflies adorn the card front.

One of the flower images from the Wonderful World Stamp set was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the inside label and adhered to the inside of the card. The same image was stamped onto the envelope front. A piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope to finish off the card.

The Wonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items! The stamped images or gorgeous, as is the paper! You’ll want this bundle to add to your stash for sure! But, as I mentioned, don’t delay…Sale-A-Bration items are selling out and we only have one month left of Sale-A-Bration!
