Kim's Card Class

Valentine and a Christmas Card in "lights"

I'm sharing a sweet valentine card that we made at Card Class recently. Its made with the "Making Everyday Bright" stamp set and Christmas Bulb punch.

I used the new petal pink cardstock as well as Stampin' Blends markers in petal pink, flirty flamingo and lovely lipstick. I colored the bulbs in with the lighter of the petal pink and flirty flamingo and shaded with the darker of each color. The tiny hearts are colored with the lovely lipstick Stampin' Blends.

I punched out the petal pink bulb with the Christmas Bulb builder punch and popped it up with a mini dimensional.

Here, you can see that I added the light rays in blushing bride ink, under the bulbs.

IMG_7322

A sweet and simple sentiment is stamped inside.

I love the simplicity of this card and the short and sweet message for Valentines day.

This set will retire soon, so if you like it, get it before the end of December!

I also made a similar card at one of my classes, using the "Making Christmas Bright" stamp set (which coordinates with the Making Everyday Bright stamp set, above) and the Christmas Bulb punch. This set can be bundled with the punch for a 10% discount. This is a bright and cheery Christmas card.

The background is stamped with the Buffalo Plaid background stamp in call me clover ink, onto call me clover cardstock. The card is granny apple green. The bulbs are stamped in lovely lipstick and mango melody inks.

I really enjoyed designing and stamping these fun cards. One, soft and sweet the other bright and bold. Both adorable!

Both sets and the punch will retire soon. Get yours soon, if you don't have it already!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Tiny Favors- Acetate Treat Boxes

I made several of these cute little favor/treat boxes for both, the On Stage Stampin Up Convention, and my Team Christmas Party attendees.

I used the adorable, Nothing Sweeter stamp set and framelit dies for all of the treat boxes.

These are the cute little boxes that I made for my team Christmas Party favors.

IMG_6121

The call me clover cardstock insert is cut at 2"x4" and the 2018-2019 In Color Designer paper (lovely lipstick) is cut at 1 3/4" x 3 3/4". I simply slid it into the front of the box and closed the lid. The tree outline was stamped in call me clover ink and the tree was stamped in the same color, but stamped off on scratch paper first.

IMG_6122

I filled the boxes with big peppermint M&M's and tied a shaded spruce colored ribbon around the cardstock- which can be used later as a bookmark as well!

IMG_6123

These are so quick and easy to make. The acetate boxes are 2"x2" and come in packs of 16. Perfect size for small treats or even candles and jewelry!

IMG_6125

I made the heart boxes to pass out to special Stampin Up demonstrator friends at the Convention last month.

IMG_6128

These were made with the same stamp set and dies- Nothing Sweeter bundle, and the same designer series paper. The silver paper is the Galvanized Metallic paper from the Holiday Catalog and the ribbon is the Black glittered organdy ribbon from the same catalog.

IMG_6127

The ink is lovely lipstick and stamped off in the same way as I did the tree above.

IMG_6948

I also made boxes with the Candy Cane Season bundle that I gave out at my Card Class this month. I don't have a photo, but I will take one and post it later.

These are such great little extras to give out or use as favors on a holiday table. I hope you'll give them a try!

Thanks for stopping by.

How to: Clothes Pin Wreath with Stampin Up designer paper

I have a grab bag gift exchange every year at my team Christmas Party. Each year, the gift I make always uses stamping or Stampin Up products in some way. This year I made the coolest wreath using clothes pins and a wire wreath that I purchased at Wal Mart.

IMG_7101

This is what I bought: The wire wreath is 12" and I used 60 clothes pins to construct the wreath.

IMG_7098

I recommend measuring the clothespins, as they may be a different size than mine. I used standard sized clothes pins. Once you measure them, cut 10 each of 6 different patterns of designer paper. I used the Stampin Up Festive Farmhouse designer paper from the Holiday Catalog.

IMG_7097

I attached the strips of paper with our Multi-Purpose glue, using the flat end and just brushing it along the clothespin. As you can see, I attached all the clothespins to the wreath, first. I used a thin piece of ribbon to tie on the back of the wire wreath, to hang. The cherry cobbler ribbon was attached with hot glue.

IMG_7100

I love how it turned out! Jackie was the recipient of my grab bag and she loved it as well!

IMG_7225

This is a pretty simple to do project for anyone on your Christmas list. I hope you have a chance to give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Beautiful Baubles

I so much enjoy creating with this set. So many possibilites with all the different stamps and dies in this Beautiful Baubles bundle.

I went with the merry merlot and copper color theme for this card. This was the bonus card at my recent Card Class.

IMG_5693

I used very vanilla cardstock to stamp on to give it a softer glow.

IMG_5695

The copper embossing powder and copper foil paper give this card that extra shine.

IMG_5696

How about that gorgeous new Merry Merlot/Copper ribbon? Lovvvveee it!

How to: Unique Fold- Cauldron Bubble Bundle

One last cute Trick or Treat card before Halloween arrives, using the Cauldron Bubble Bundle. I've used this unique card fold a few times lately and we also did this card at my Card Class recently.

For instructions and measurements, see my previous blog post here.

IMG_5773

For the most part there isn't much stamping on this card. The images all come from the Toil and Trouble designer series paper. The cat was die cut with the coordinating framelits.

IMG_5777

Its hard to tell from the photo, but the bats were punched out with the Spooky Bat punch from a piece of the new Black Foil sheets. They are slick and shiny!

I used the new Buffalo Plaid background stamp, inked in mango melody ink and stamped on mango melody cardstock for the inside of the card.

IMG_5774

The New Swirls and Curls emboss folder was used on the bottom of the card. I used pumpkin pie cardstock and then rubbed a cajun craze inkpad across the swirls. I love the cool look and it really defines the swirls.

Here's a peek at the inside:

IMG_5775

The bright colors of halloween are so fun to use... it really makes this card pop!

I've attached the gorgeous new Black Glitter Ribbon with a mini glue dot. This ribbon is not just for halloween. I've been using it on everything- Christmas cards included!

IMG_5776

I hope you're getting your halloween cards ready- trick or treat will be here before you know it!

Stampin Up Cute Animal Outing Card

Throwing in one of the cards we had made at Card Class recently. Its a cute and colorful, thank you card. This set is adorable and there are matching framelits too!

I also used other products from the Animal Outing Suite, like the Animal Expedition designer paper and the Leaf Ribbon.

The Animal Friends coordinating framelits cut the images that appear on the designer paper as well.

IMG_E4974

The colors I used for this card are granny apple green, balmy blue and whisper white. The designer paper is the Animal Expedition paper, as I mentioned above. The Balmy Blue cardstock is cut at 4 x 3 and the alligators are 4 x 2 1/4". The stip in the middle is 4 x 1/2" attached over the balmy blue.

IMG_E4975

I punched a circle in the balmy blue with the 2 1/4 circle punch, then popped it up with dimensionals onto the card. The dimensionals also hold the Leaf ribbon in place, behind the card. The leaves were held in place on the front of the card with glue dots.

IMG_E4976

I colored the frog with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers in old olive and the branch in call me clover and crumb cake. I popped the branch on with mini dimensionals and added some Metallic Pearls and Glitter Dots.

IMG_E4974

It was a big hit at Card Class. How could you not love the super cute jungle animals? *SEE PRODUCT LIST BELOW
