Stampin’ Up! Year End Closeouts and Bella and Friends Birthday Card

Twenty-one years ago yesterday that I received a very precious birthday present as my grand daughter, Danielle, was born on my birthday!  What a wonderful birthday I had!  This year not so great as I’ve been so sick with a sore throat and laryngitis!  I hope it goes away soon.

I pulled out the Bella and Friends stamp set to make this card for her from her Uncle Colin.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines

Stamping is therapy and it was so good to get back to the craft table and make a card!  I used this lovely Christmas Pines stamp set and Pretty Pines Thinlits for my card.

christmas-pines-cherry
A quick card using Cherry Cobbler as the base card with a Very Vanilla mat and a piece of the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobbler classic ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and used the new Stitched Shaped framlits to cut it out.

It is layered onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut with the Layered Circles framelits with scallop edge.  The branches are cut from Garden Green card stock with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and the bow cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The circle sentiment is adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals and the branches attached to the back with the bow on the front to complete the card.

Christmas Pines is one of the sets that is discounted by 25% to the end of November.  Be sure to check out the other stamps that are also on sale.

Stampin’ Up! Greetings from Santa Shaker Cards

The Greetings from Santa stamp set is on sale this month (until November 30) at 25% off – what a great opportunity to get this popular stamp set at a discount, see details below!  At my White Christmas Card class last month we made a shaker card using this set along with the Detailed Santa Thinlits (#141836, $33).

greetings-from-santa-shakerThe shaker cards are so easy to make with the Foam Adhesive Strips (#141825, $10.75) introduced in this year’s Annual Catalogue.  We added some sequins and other glittery bits for the shaker items.  The image is from the set that we stamped with Silver Encore ink and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and fussy cut.  It’s popped up with dimensionals on a strip of the 3/8″  silver glitter ribbon from the Glitter Ribbon Sweet Sugarplum)  pack (page 37, HC, #142015, $8.00).

Here’s another version of the Greetings from Santa shaker card.  This is made with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Mica Flakes are used in the shaker and a few Red Glimmer cut outs from the Starlight Thinlit dies are added to the front of the card.

Here’s a list of the other stamp sets that are on sale until the end of the month – and don’t forget that you can also purchase the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies now (not have to wait until next year).

I recall selling Poppies in Victoria as a little girl for Remembrance Day and so proud that I was able to recite John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields poem as we were taught in school.

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Sleigh

When the Holiday Catalogue came out, I wasn’t too keen on this Santa’s Sleigh bundle, but as time goes on and you see some fabulous samples, it became a must have!  This is my first card using the bundle and I also had some Copper Foil and Copper Embossing Powder that hadn’t been used so it was a good opportunity to put them all together.

santas-sleigh-f

What do you think?  I love how the Copper Foil and Embossing Powder!  My base card is Soft Suede cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  The piece of Copper Foil is cut 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the Very Vanilla piece is 5 1/4″ x 4″.

I used the tree thinlit from the co-ordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits die and cut it out from the centre of the 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece before layering the Very Vanilla piece over it.  It saves on the Copper Foil as no one sees the layered foil piece.  Great way to save on paper!

The Very Vanilla layer is rolled through the Big Shot using the Soft Falling Embossing Folder – it has been the most used embossing folder for my Christmas cards!  I next stamped the two trees with Versamark on the Very Vanilla and embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder – so beautiful!  The Copper Foil tree is popped up using dimensionals and I cut the tiny stars using the star thinlit from the same thinlit set and adhered with dimensionals.

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the set with Versamark and embossing with the Copper Embossing Powder.

This bundle is available for $59.25 with the stamp set in photopolymer (see page 24 of the Holiday Catalogue).

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Swaps

What a great time we had at OnStage over the weekend in Vancouver, BC.  Over 300 people were in attendance from across Canada and US.

onstage-2016-my-teamOne of the fun part of OnStage is the swaps!   It started as we were waiting in line to head into the conference room and I received so many beautiful cards.  One of the stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue that I’ve grown to love is the Christmas Pines (it’s on sale until the end of November) and the co-ordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  Please note:  Only the stamp set is on sale.

Here are some of the swaps using this beautiful set.  There is no name on the back so I don’t know who I got it from but it’s a beautiful card.

Here’s another with no name on it. Very pretty.

onstage-2016-swaps-christmas-pines-full-cardWhile I do have the Christmas Pines/Pretty Pines Bundle, I haven’t even opened it yet!  So my swap was made using the Hang Your Stocking bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Cupcakes Pop Up

These cards have been popping up all over so I had to give it a try and this is the result.  So sad that Watermelon Wonder will be leaving us next year as it’s a gorgeous color and that was the choice to make this card with the Sweet Cupcake Bundle.
