Stampin Up "Ready for Christmas" Card with a Fun Fold

This is another fun fold for a cute Christmas card using the new Ready for Christmas stamp set. Ready for Christmas, comes with a coordinating framelit bundle, however, I only used the stamps to create this card.

I also used the brand spanking new Stampin Blends alcohol markers! Oh how I love these awesome pens!

The designer series paper is from the Be Merry 12 x 12 paper pack and the cardstock colors are whisper white, cherry cobbler and pear pizazz.

When using the Stampin' Blends markers, the Tuxedo Black Memento pad is a must. It is designed to work with alcohol markers. Can you see how well shaded and blended these markers make my image look? They are so easy and effortless to use.

Here's a closer look at the fun Z fold of the card. This fold was very simple to create. I folded the  4 1/4" x 11" cherry cobbler cardstock in half. Then I folded the front flap of the card, back up to the fold. So, I actually just folded the front flap in half to meet the side fold of the card.

Here's another angle of the Z fold card.

There are so many stamps and dies in this adorable stamp set and coordinating framelit set that the possibilities really are endless!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up Gift Packaging Class - A few fun photos!

I have to say, that the Holiday Gift Packaging Class, yesterday, was a big hit. We had a great time creating fall and Christmas gift ideas both in the morning and evening classes. The attendees made 10 Holiday projects- gifts included!

Thanks to all who attended, for making the day extra fun and special!

Lori and Jan are excited to create their first project of the day, using the mini acetate boxes. Some yummy Ghirardelli chocolate and a candle fill the two boxes and are ready for gift giving!

We decorated a mini pizza box with the Foil Frenzy designer paper and a shiny foil snowflake.

Inside were 5 mini 3x3 cards and matching envelopes. How darling!

So perfectly snug in the cute little Stampin' Up Mini Pizza Box.

Leah and Cheryl were excited to see that chocolate was one of the main ingredients in their first project.

Here they are showing off their favorite creations of the day.

Jan and Lori also had a few favorites- especially, the Seasonal Chums set- because they loved the cute little deer (which they named Chip- just in case you needed to know-lol)

Here's Chip :)

He's a little treat tube candy holder. Here's a look at the inside:

Sneak Peek- Holiday Gift Packaging Class

I thought I'd share a quick peek at the Stampin' Up treat tubes from the Holiday Catalog, that we will be making at my Holiday Gift Packaging Class this week.

We are making 10 projects all together. I think the treat tubes are fabulous and so fun! Fill them will all sorts of candy or treats.

I matched the candy to the stamped image theme: red hots for Rudophs "nose" and Reeses's pieces to match the pumpkin pie pumpkin!

IMG_0052

I got the cute idea for the reindeer on a toothpick from my friend Cindy. She always has fun ideas to share! See her blog here.

I'm looking forward to sharing the other amazing holiday projects with my attendees this Wednesday.

Thanks for taking a "peek" at my blog today!

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!

Stampin Up Snowman Chum

As I mentioned this weekend, I was playing with the Seasonal Chums stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Tags framelits and I have another sweet card to share with you.

This time, its the adorable snowman image. I used some untraditional snowman colors- pink pirouette, melon mambo, pool party, wild wasabi and smoky slate because I wanted to be able to use if for a winter card and not necessarily a Christmas card. However, it would work just as perfectly for Christmas too.

I also used silver glimmer paper and the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the large pink pirouette circle, and the 2 1/4" circle punch for the silver circle.

IMG_0024

Ah, this snowman chum is so chubby and cute! The small snowflakes were also cut from the Seasonal Tags framelits set. For the snowflakes, I used dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. It sparkles just like a real snowflake would.

IMG_0019

A little bit of fine tip glue was used to give shine to the buttons, nose, eyes, berries and scarf. Its cool how the fine tip glue dries so clear and shiny!

IMG_0018

A few ombre glitter dots were attached to the middle of the small snowflakes. I love how they give the snowflakes color and dimension.

IMG_0025

I'm loving this new Soft Slate Gingham Ribbon, its so soft and pretty. I added a little sparkle with a rhinestone gem on the knot of the bow.

IMG_0027

The Cable Knit emboss folder has got to be one of my most favorite embossing folders. Its so realistic!

Don't forget the inside! Its says "You're Sweet"- I would have stamped it in pool party, but it was packed away in my class projects and I didn't feel like digging it out. lol

IMG_0029

And you guessed, it... just like the reindeer card from the last post- I used the back of the snowman on the back of the card of course.

IMG_0030

I think these soft colors work really well with this chubby snowman and cute little bunny, don't you?

IMG_0033

The snowman was attached with dimensionals and the snowflakes with our super sticky mini glue dots.

IMG_0031

I could stamp with this set all day long... I love the images and I love the framelits. So many cute possibilities!

Cute Halloween Greeting Cards

Falls here and halloween is just around the corner. If you've never sent halloween cards in the past, maybe this year you can start a new tradition and surprise your friends and family with cute cards in the mail!

I used the ever so cute pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog. There is an optional "face" for the pumpkins just for halloween. Or you can leave the pumpkin faceless :)

IMG_9575

I'm loving the combination of basic black with the lemon lime twist cardstock. The black and white ribbon is so awesome, I want to use it on everything! It has a shiny coating and thick stitching on the edges.. so gorgeous. I just realized this is a different card from above... almost exactly the same except I used perfect plum as the card base and trim. The greeting is on a wisteria wonder circle instead of pumpkin pie cardstock. Oh my... I guess I was having too much fun playing with this set!

IMG_9578

Here we go.. here's a photo of both cards.

IMG_9574

I made a big bunch of them to send out to my stampin' friends.

IMG_9579

I made this one too. I am smitten with this ribbon.. can't use it enough, that's for sure. And just how cute is that tiny spider web from the coordinating Patterned Pumpkins framelit set??

 I hope you decide to send some fun halloween or fall pumpkin cards out this year. I bet it will be a fun and welcome surprise to your friends and family.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until the next time...

Pumpkins A Plenty and an Embossing Technique

Well, I mentioned that I love pumpkins, and now you know that I wasn't kidding. Here's a couple more pumpkin cards from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and coordinating Patterned Pumpkins framelit dies.

One card we made at Kim's Card Class last week and the other is a variation of that. Both in similar color and design.

This one is from card class. The designer paper is from the Painted Autumn paper pack.

IMG_9724

Notice the background? Its the Garden Trellis emboss folder. What I did here, was to stamp the pumpkin and the greeting first and then emboss over it. I kind of am in love with this technique.. and the emboss folder.

IMG_9725

This one is a little different - no embossing but a couple more die cuts.

IMG_9726

I've added some wooden, Hearts and Stars Elements to this cheerful pumpkin card. The colors are mostly the same, but I used soft sky as the card base instead of cajun craze.

IMG_9727

I've attached the elements with mini glue dots and multi purpose glue. The greeting on this card is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and the birthday greeting on the card above is from the Special Delivery stamp set. Don't you just love the colors of fall? Me too!

Which one is your favorite?  I can never choose - I love any kind of pumpkin card!

Thanks for stopping in today.

Until the next time...
