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!

Stampin’ Up! Regal Reindeer Christmas Card

The Regal Reindeer Stamp Set and Reindeer Dies create a beautiful forest holiday scene! The image of the trio of pine trees in this set is one of the prettiest I have seen! I’m a push-over for images that can be stamped and colored (in case you haven’t noticed by now – insert smile…) but I think you’ll enjoy playing with the Regal Reindeer Bundle too!

I started off with an Evening Evergreen cardstock card base. The card front was built onto a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock and matted with black.

The images of the little girl, reindeer and pine trees were stamped onto Basic White cardstock and colored using a variety of Stampin’ Blends. But these images could easily be colored using markers or watercolor pencils…the choice is yours!

The colored images were die cut using the coordinating Reindeer Dies, along with two snowbanks and the stamped sentiment label. I wanted to bring some richness into the card front, so I also die cut a single pine tree, star and several bells from Gold Foil Sheets. The gold was the perfect touch!

The scene was assembled onto the Soft Succulent panel, and I added specs of white craft ink for falling snow onto the panel and added some Wink of Stella on the snowbanks and tree limbs just to add a little sparkle.

The card front was finished off with a bow tied from Gold & Vanilla Satin Edge Ribbon and several gold Festive Pearls.

The trio of pine trees were also stamped and colored on the inside panel as well as the envelope front and envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Pomegranate Birthday Card

It’s Friday and I have a Friday Fun Day project for you – an easy Z Fold card featuring the Perfect Pomegranate Stamp Set and the Wonderful World 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper!

The Perfect Pomegranate Stamp Set is an exclusive host stamp set that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration by hosting a party of $300+ (either party sales or personal sales). The Wonderful World Designer Series Paper is bundled with the Wonderful World Stamp Set and is also a Sale-A-Bration item which you can earn for free with a qualifying order. Only the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper was used from the bundle.

This fun Z Fold sits on a Cherry Cobbler card base and the right and left panels of the card front are adorned with the Wonderful World paper after adhering the paper to Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler mats. The center panel was stamped with images from the Perfect Pomegranate Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler inks, then matted and adhered to the left front of the card.

The sentiment was stamped onto a thin piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted with a coordinating piece of the DSP, then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the center panel at an angle. I used Gold and Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon to tie a small bow and adhered the bow to the left side of the sentiment label. Several gold Festive Pearls were also added to the center panel.

For the inside of the card I second-generation stamped the same images onto a Very Vanilla panel, then stamped an additional sentiment over the stamped images.

A coordinating piece of DSP was adhered to the envelope flap and fussy cut around the flap. Leaves were stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on the envelope front.

The images from the Perfect Pomegranate Stamp Set combined with the pretty Wonderful World Designer Series Paper make for a pretty birthday card but this design would also be suitable for an anniversary, get well or sympathy card also.

If you’re interested in hosting a party before August 31 to earn the Perfect Pomegranate Stamp Set, reach out to me and I can set up a host code for you that your party guests can use.

Nature’s Prints in Blue and Gray / June Host Code for Customers / Last Chance & Retiring Items-Get Them Before They are Gone!

nature’s prints in blue and gray

I made another card using the Nature’s Prints Bundle because I just couldn’t help myself. Today’s all occasion card is a study in white, blue and gray. The card front panel was embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder then Gray Granite ink was blended over the surface in a random pattern – where some areas are darker than others. I was going for the weathered look.

A piece of Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon stretches across the lower third of the card front, then a circle frame was created using two circles from the Layering Circles Dies from a piece of the Sun Prints DSP. I then die cut a wreath from the Natural Print Dies in white and adhered that to the circle frame and this unit was then adhered over the ribbon onto the card front.

Several sprigs in white and Night of Navy were then tucked under the sentiment label to add a little extra umph! A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels finish off the card front.

Abigail Rose Get Well Card / Kits Collection BOGO 50% Off Promotion / New Kit! Love This Memory Notebook Kit Available June 1

abigail rose get well card

Today’s card uses the beautiful Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Fabulous Frames Dies paired with Early Espresso, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent…what great colors together!

The outlines of the flowers on the DSP are in Crumb Cake and I used Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends to color in the images – both for the front panel and the envelope flap. Such soft, beautiful colors! The large frame was die cut from a piece of Gold Foil and applied over the DSP panel, then adhered to a Petal Pink mat before adhering to the card front. I’m very partial to the new Fabulous Frames Dies…they are awesome!

The large flower image from the Cottage Rose stamp set was used to stamp on the inside card panel as well as the envelope front and those images were colored as well. This finishes up the card!

Heron Habitat Friendship Card / Kits Collection BOGO 50% Off Promotion

Heron Habitat Friendship Card

On the East Coast of the US in back creeks and estuaries you’ll find Great Blue Herons. Heron’s shy away from populated waterways and prefer quieter waters. They are regal creatures and quite large – constantly keeping their eyes to the water for their next meal. Observing one of these majestic birds in their natural habitat is a real treat!

The Heron Habitat Bundle and DSP from the Hues of Happiness 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper were used to create this card. These items are available in the current 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Multiple dies were used from the Heron Dies set to create the peaceful scene depicted on this card – complete with waves, tidal grass and Cattails!

You can view, download and print the project sheet for this card by clicking on the icon below. I hope you enjoy creating this card as much as I did. Using the Heron bundle reminded me of my younger days when I got to spend time on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
