Window Card - Stampin' Up Christmas Quilt

Here's a fun and simple window card, using the star and framelits from the Christmas Quilt Bundle. I used the Quilt Builder Framelits to cut the window on the front flap of the garden green card.

I then stamped the star with the Christmas Quilt stamp set in garden green and pool party. I love these two colors together. It makes an interesting and unique color combination for Christmas cards- think ice and pine trees...

I added a strip of the Quilted Christmas designer paper across the front of the card to pull in more of the star pattern and ink colors.

I mounted the stamped star image on a square of pool party cardstock and attached it inside the card, directly behind the window that I cut out.

IMG_0082

A strip of silver metallic edge ribbon tied in a knot and attached with a glue dot is mounted on the top corner of the card and an Enamel Shape is centered in the middle of the cut out window.

Its the perfect little non traditional Christmas Quilt window card to send out this season.

Thanks a bunch, for stopping by today!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt tree card

I have a quick and cute card to share with you today, made with the Christmas Quilt stamp set. I've been itchin' to use the new Stitched Felt Embellishments and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Of course I used the coordinating Quilted Christmas Designer paper as well. I made this darling little card for my #1 Stampers Team Meeting swap.

IMG_0102

I think the little tree stamps worked perfectly alongside the felt tree. I attached the felt tree with dimensionals.

IMG_0104

The star on the top of the tree is from the Metallic Enamel Shapes embellishment set. I stamped another little tree on the inside too!

IMG_0103

I wanted to try this card with a real red background in place of the garden green. I think it really pops with the red designer paper.

IMG_0108

Both cards, side by side... I can't choose.. what do you think?

IMG_0109

I hope the girls liked their swaps tonight!

Sneak Peek- Kim's Card Class

Here's a sneak peek at a lovely Christmas card that we will be making at Kim's Card Class this week.

I used the Merry Little Labels stamp set and coordinating Everyday Label Punch.

The designer paper on the card is the Merry Music designer paper- it is beautifully decorated with music notes and songs. The other designer paper on the card is Merry Little Christmas and is all patterns of basic black and old olive.

I love using these two papers together on Christmas cards- actually the Merry Little Christmas paper, isn't just for Christmas, and it has a masculine feel to it as well.

IMG_0100

Can you see the dazzling diamonds glitter that I used on the snowflakes? It really gives this card a subtle sparkle and shine. I used the fine tip glue pen to apply the glue, then I sprinkled the glitter over top.

IMG_0101

Its hard to tell in this photo, but the basic black satin ribbon has a silver sparkle woven into it. Its so pretty!

I'm excited to see my stampin' friend at class this week. I hope they love the projects!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

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!

Until the next time...

Stamping Fun with Seasonal Chums- A Cute Little Reindeer

I was finally able to get some stampin' time in today, so I grabbed my Seasonal Chums stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Tags framelits and started inkin' up my stamps.

I chose the cute little reindeer as my focal point for this card. He's got the sweetest little face. I also haven't used my new Snowflake emboss folder yet, so I chose that for my background.

This stamp set is made so that when its stamped, it can be cut out with the Seasonal Tag framelits to make a tag- it has a front and back. I did use the front and the back of the reindeer, and you'll see that later in my post.

I didn't want to do a lot of coloring - so I stamped the reindeer onto crumb cake cardstock. The color was already there, so no coloring in on his body. Just a few highlights with a marker, here and there. I also used our chalk marker for the antlers, spots and tail. Isn't he the cutest?

IMG_9970

I LOVE sparkle, so I wanted to add a layer of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper around the edges, but I didn't want to waste all that glimmer by hiding it behind my Winter Wonder embossed snowflake layer. I used my paper trimmer to cut the inside of the glimmer paper, so I could save it for another project.

IMG_9966

Using my fine tip glue pen, I outlined the raised edges on the Winter Wonder embossed snowflake and added dazzling diamonds glitter to make is sparkle like fresh falling snow.

IMG_9971

The pearl jewels fit nicely in the design of the Winter Wonder embossed snowflake.

IMG_9980

I stamped the greeting in crumb cake ink and punched it out with the 1" circle punch and tucked it under the crumb cake ribbon.

IMG_9968

I added a little bit of sparkle to the crumb cake ribbon by adding another knot of silver ribbon on top of it, using a glue dot.

IMG_9981

I used dimensionals to pop up the Winter Wonder embossed snowflake layer from the card. The dimensionals also stick to glimmer paper really well.

IMG_9978

Are you wondering where the back of the reindeer is?

IMG_9977

Why, its on the "back" of the card, of course.

IMG_9974

Just too cute for words...

IMG_9979

Hope you enjoyed my sweet reindeer card today.

IMG_9973

I'll have another Seasonal Chums card to share with you next time too- so be sure to come back to check it out.

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Z Card Fold

I've got another triple Z fold card to share with you today. I posted one last week made with a birthday stamp set, and today I'm using the Colorful Seasons Bundle to make a fall card.

I used the beautiful leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. This stamp set is a two step stamp set- which means the stamps are layered on top of each other in different colors to create shading and dimension.

If you'd like the measurements and a quick tutorial on how to make this fold- refer back to the card from last week - click here

IMG_9938

 A tip when stamping the large leaves- stamp the outline image first and then the solid image. I used pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry and pear pizzaz inks on this card.

IMG_9940

I added some fun embellishments too! Gold faceted gems, enamel shapes and gold metallic shapes.

IMG_9939

 I wanted to give the card the look of tree bark, so I added the Pinewood Plank emboss folder to add some detailed woodgrain dimesion to the top flap of the card. I love how it turned out.

IMG_9942

Its officially fall and I think this card is a perfect greeting for the season.

IMG_9943

Happy Fall y'all and thanks for stopping by!

Until the next time...
