Tall and Whimsey Christmas

The card for today is one of the Slim or Skinny cards made with a touch of Whimsey and Snowflakes.  It includes the Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Wonderful Snowflakes.  An early touch of Christmas.

 

Stampin' Up!, Whimsical Trees, Wonderful Snowflakes, Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

This sweet card is made with one of my favorite Bundles in the Mini Catalog.  The Whimsical Trees Bundle is fabulous.  The tree with the lovely metallic garland is so pretty and actually simple to do.  They are both die cut using the matching dies of the bundle.  For the garland, I did use the Adhesive Sheets to simplify applying it to the tree.

Colors

Above I mentioned my favorite Bundle, is the Whimsical Trees,  when actually it is a favorite Suite of products.  The Designer Series Paper was my color inspiration for this card, even though I did not use the DSP.  The Blushing Bride and Misty Moonlight are so pretty together.  And I had to use a green for the tree.  I went with Soft Succulent there.

Finishing Touches

One of the main pieces of this card is the Wonderful Snowflake.  These are iridescent snowflakes that come in a package pre cut.  I love the shine it brings to the card.  As a pairing to the Rose Metallic Shimmer of the garland, I added the Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon.  It is wrapped around the front layers with an extra strip  simply tied in a knot.  The last touch is the Champagne Rhinestone on the center of the snowflake

Flat Whimsey Fun Fold

Today’s card is another Fun Fold that is a super easy one to make.  It is a change to soft Christmas Colors with a touch of Whimsey.  This will definitely be one of my Christmas cards this year.  I CASED it from The Paper Pixie, Julie DiMatteo.

 

Stampin' Up!, Whimsey and Wonder, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

This card is all about the paper!  The gorgeous Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper is such a WOW!  I have now fallen in love with all of the soft colors for Christmas in place of the traditional ones.  The Blushing Bride card base is pulled from the beautiful paper.  And both pieces of the DSP you see are from the Whimsey & Wonder.

Stamps and Dies

All of the stamps used, with the exception of one, are included in the Whimsical Trees stamp set.  I really love the sweet sentiment on the front.  It is larger than most front sentiments, but it fit perfectly and is so sweet!  The raised swirl is in the stamp set and has a matching die that I used to cut it out with.

 

 

This is a view of the card opened.  You can still see the beautiful DSP.  The same swirl image as on the front, I stamped on the inside as well.   Merry Christmas is the only stamp not included in the Whimsical Trees.  This one is from the Little Delights stamp set.

InKing Royalty October Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects center around Harvest & Hope, so prepare yourself for gratitude and love in Fall-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The card I have to share today contains Pumpkins and Gratitude for this Harvest Theme.   Both inspire memories of childhood, family time and fun

 

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins, Harvest Meadow, Thanksgiving, Jackie Beers

 

 

 

Paper and Colors

I have been using all of the deeper and brighter Fall colors lately.  So I wanted to go with a softer look today.  The Boldness of the Bumblebee cardstock pairs well with the softer green of Soft Succulent in the piece of Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper I picked .  For an even softer touch, I used Soft Sea Foam for the green of the vines.  To pair with that, the Pumpkins are stamped with Smoky Slate and then colored using Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends.  The piece needed another spot of brightness to match the Bumblebee.  So I colored the flower bloom from the vine with Daffodil Delight and added a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel.

Stamps

The stamps I used are all from the Pretty Pumpkins set.  Being able to make a card from just one set is something I love!  The gorgeous font from the Gather Together looks beautiful with the shine of the Bumblebee Ink.  I stamped the three pumpkin image twice.  Once on the main piece and another on a scrap of White cardstock.  They are all colored the same, but I fussy cut the end ones from the extra stamped piece.  For a bit of fun I added them to the corners of the focal layer.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Lynn Kolcun at Avery’s Owlery. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Welcome Fall Y’all

Today’s project is a Welcome Fall Y’all card using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set along with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  I need a stamp with Y’all!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Gorgeous Leaves, Beauty of the Earth, Banner Pick A Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

These beautiful leaves with the little dots around them are from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.  The little dots add a ton of definition to each leaf in my opinion.  It is just enough of an extra touch.  I also added with Sahara Sand, that is stamped off first, the splatter stamp for even more background flavor.  The two leaves are not all of the leaves in the stamp set.  I only had room for the two for this design.

Paper

The card base is from Thick Basic White cardstock.  I did not add an extra White layer as I sometimes do. The stamping is directly on the card base.  The gorgeous paper is a piece from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  I cut a piece that measures 4 X 5 1/4 and then cut it on the diagonal.  That gives me two cards.  One has the layout I am showing you and the other has the wider section of DSP at the top instead of the bottom.  That card ends up being a softer looking one.

Finishing Touches

I added a banner in Sahara Sand cardstock to bring out the Sahara Sand splatter a bit more.   I stamped the Welcome from the Garden Birdhouse stamp set in Misty Moonlight to add more of the Blue to the card.  And  we want to Welcome Fall Y’all!!!  For the final touch, I added one of the Champagne Rhinestones to the banner.

Gingerbread Love

With the holidays coming up quickly, one of the things I most look forward to is fresh gingerbread.  One it is bread, and two it is sweet.  You cannot beat that.  So to share my love of gingerbread, I have a fun and quick card to share with you.

 

Stampin' Up!, Frosted Gingerbread, Gingerbread and Peppermint, Scalloped Contours Dies, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

This fun stamp set is from the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle.  It has the sweet gingerbread stamps along with some great sentiments.  For this card I did the quick method and only stamped the sentiment.  I love this sentiment as it could be a sweetheart type sentiment or just a sweet sentiment  for friends.

Paper

The gorgeous plaid paper is from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6X6 Designer Series Paper pack.  There are great patterns that appear to have the baked gingerbread in the background.  Also there are pieces that match the Dies included in the Bundle.  I could have stamped the bell and then die cut it, but I went the quick and easy route and simply die cut from the paper. Yay!!

Dies

There are two different sets of Dies used on this card.   The first set is the one for the plaid gingerbread background piece.   It is cut using the middle of the Scalloped Countours Dies.  I truly love this Die set and especially these layer ones.  The second set of Dies is the ones from the Gingerbread Bundle.  I used the bell Die to cut out the Bell from the DSP.  And the only finishing touch this card needed was a hanger for the bell.  The Simply Elegant Trim makes a delicate little bow for the hanger.

Meadow Birthday

Flowers are always a good basis for a birthday card since generally something is blooming year round.  I have chosen the Quiet Meadow stamp set for an easy birthday card to share with you today.

 

Stampin' Up!, Quiet Meadow, Kraft paper, Double Oval Punch, Peaceful Moments, Jackie Beers

Paper

I am beginning in reverse order today since I mentioned the stamp set in the introduction.  The Kraft Paper, which is in the Mini Catalog, is one I have not stamped on previous to this card.  It is a bit thicker than our regular paper.  However, it is wonderful to stamp on.  And it does not overly absorb the ink to give a smeared or watery look.  I have definitely waited too long to use this paper!!

Colors

I wanted bolder colors to pair with the Kraft paper instead of more subdued or masculine ones.  You cannot get much bolder than Rich Razzleberry!  And then I added Basic Black as the layer.  This really helped the colors to separate.  The background stamping is done with Sahara Sand for a more subtle look.  Of course I had to use Memento Tuxedo Black for the flowers for them to stand out.  And they are colored with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  I tested on scrap and the Rich Razzleberry became way too dark on the Kraft paper.  So make note of this.

Stamps

All of the stamps I used, with the exception of the sentiment are from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.  I love the background stamps for a softer collage look.  And for me to not use a Designer Series Paper is amazing!   I simply made my own paper.  The sentiment is a simple one and it took me a few minutes to find one.  It needed to fit the Double Oval Punch.  I found it in the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Finishing Touches

To finish this card I went with Linen Thread.  That is a regular Go To for me.  It is great to work with.  I wrapped it around the card three times and then tied a three strand bow.  As I said above, the sentiment is finished by using the Double Oval Punch.  And the final touch is a single of the Elegant Gems placed next to the Happy Birthday.

Purrfect Halloween

After a break from Halloween cards to participate in the Pals Blog Hop yesterday, I have a fun Cat Halloween to share.  If you missed the blog hop, you can start with my card by clicking HERE and then following the lineup.

Stampin' Up!, Clever Cat, Black & white gingham, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

I know you have seen me use this Clever Cats stamp set a few times, or more!  The cats are just adorable and I love cats.  And especially Black Cats.  They are always the sweetest.  This guy fits perfectly to sit on just about anything.  So today he is sitting on the pumpkin.  All of these images are included in the stamp set.  The sentiment is included as well, along with some other precious ones.  This is one stamp set that will reside with me for quite a while.

Colors

To go along with the Halloween theme, as well as the Black Cat, I went with the traditional Orange and Black as my color pallet.   The cat and pumpkin were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I colored the pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.  For the sentiment I wanted a bit more orange, so stamped it using Pumpkin Pie Ink.  The final touch is the Black & White Gingham Ribbon.  Just to be different I did a double loop bow and am happy with how it turned out.

Pals October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The card I have made to share with you today is technically a Fun Fold.  There are options for making it and I went with a simple version.  My version removes part of the “Fold” making it more of a Fun Cut than Fold.  LOL!!  Of course I would be different.  But I hope you like it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Poinsettia Petals, Tidings of Christmas, Gold Metallic, Jackie Beers

 

Fun Fold

This fold is called an Envelope Fold.  I got the fold idea from a Splitcoast Stamper post of Dina Kowal.  It can be either cut into a point on the front, like I have done.  Or it can be scored and folded , where I cut off those sides, and then the DSP triangle is added over the folded sections creating a pocket.  I wanted the clean look of the point for the front of the card.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.  I have a PDF for the card further down in the post.

 

 

The corner DSP pieces are what you also see on the front.  I love that this fold still allows plenty of room for your inside stamping and writing.

Stamps, Dies and Ink

The stamp set is what used to be a Bundle.  It is the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and matching Poinsettia Dies.  All of the stamping is done using Cherry Cobbler Ink.  The poinsettia on the inside is “stamped off” first to create a bit lighter color.

I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the die cut flowers on the front of the card.  The Poinsettia Dies are awesome in the details they give to the flowers.  There are two separate dies for each flower.  They can be used singly or together, as I did.

Paper and Embellishments

For me, the beginning of most cards is the Designer Series Paper.  For this card, other than the Fun Fold, that was the case.  I love the Tidings of Christmas 6X6 paper stack.  And the piece I used is my favorite.  The mix of soft and regals colors are perfect.

To finish with some bling,  I added the flower centers by using the awesome Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.  It comes paired with a Rose color as well.  They are beautiful and have awesome details.  The die used is included in the die set.  For the smallest flower, I used the ribbon hole on the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a center.

Grateful

The idea for today’s card was for a very soft and simple card using a new stamp set.  The stamp set is in the Annual Catalog, I had just not gotten it until recently.  My original idea did not work, so on to plan B and not a “soft” card. LOL!!!

 

 

Stamp Set and Dies

The stamp set, actually a Bundle, that I used is the Forever Grapevine set.  It contains this awesome grapevine and then several wonderful sentiments.  There are matching dies to fit the grapevine as well as the little sentiment die cut I used.  I love the little curly pieces of vine behind the sentiment.  They are also included in the Die set.  Little add ons like these pieces really make the sentiment pop without any extra bulk.

Colors

To carry the Grape theme, I went with Blackberry Bliss and Soft Succulent.  Blackberry Bliss can be either for red grapes or my favorite – a Muscadine.  The grape vine would have been fine with a darker color.  However I like mixing a soft and strong colors together.

I cut the Basic White layer shorter so the ribbon would not cover part of the vine.  This Open Weave Ribbon in all of the 2021-2023 In Colors, is so wonderful to work with.  A small bow really makes a great finishing touch I think.
