Merry Elfie

Besides the great FREE SHIPPING Sale for tomorrow, it is also the Pals Blog Hop.  We will be focusing on the Holiday Catalog.  So stop in and get some ideas for the great products that are going away.  I have the End Of Year Clearance link at the bottom, or you can just press the Shop Now button at the top and go directly to my online store.  You can choose the different sales, products, etc from there.

For today’s card I am focusing on one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog.  It seemed the perfect choice for today’s post.  This cute Elf is on the “going away list”.  I think he is adorable and have enjoyed making several projects with him.  He is on all of my Christmas Tags for my gifts.

 

 

I adore this little elf.  He is taking a short break from Christmas Toy making!  The layout of this card is similar to the Thinking of You from yesterday.  This time I did use the Scoring Blade on the new Paper Trimmer.  It works wonderfully.  I only scored at the 1/2″ line all around.  And I used the raised side instead of the indented side.  This gives a very different look I believe.

I used a variety of the Stampin’ Blends for the elf and sign.  I went with Bright colors on this little guy.  And I finished it off with a Bright Granny Apple Green Ink for the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please check back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop.

Thinking of You

Stampin’ Up! likes to promote the #simplestamping, or stamping for beginners.  I love the look that simple stamping gives.  It is not “PLAIN”.  The simple stamping is more of limited product use, like a new stamper would have in their craft space.

Today’s card is a #simplestamping, but I do not think it is plain at all.  I hope you will give this one a CASE and see what you come up with.

 

#simplestamping, Dandelion Wishes, Jackie Beers, Simply Scored, Stampin' Up!

 

I love this card and how elegant it looks.  With a rhinestone in the center of the dandelion, it would be perfect.  But I wanted to stay with the definition of the simple stamping, which is Stamp, Paper, and Ink.

I used my Simply Scored to do the scoring around the centerpiece.  You can use the new Paper Trimmer and get the same results.  The score blade on the new trimmer is a wheel instead of a blade as the old trimmer had.  It scores much deeper and would be a great double use of the trimmer.  I used the Simply Scored before I thought of the new trimmer.  I did try with the trimmer and it worked perfectly.

The only thing the centerpiece has that is not just stamped and layered is that it is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Little Tip:  I always place one in the center of a piece like this to keep the center from sagging. You don’t even have to remove the backing to stick the center one, just use it as a dimension.

Frosted Birthday

The Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Designer Paper is just beautiful.  It is so realistic looking that you just say “Wow”.  So it does not take much to add to that paper for a super nice card to appear.  That is what I did today.  I turned the Frost paper into a birthday card.  I was thinking outside of the box and away from the expected Christmas or Winter card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Itty Bitty Birthdays

 

For a color to pair with the DSP,  I took the piece I had cut and went down my paper files.  I found a few that were okay matches, but when I came to Purple Posy I knew it was the one.  Yes, I hate that the ink for Purple Posy never worked out, but the other products are still wonderful.

The ribbon is Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  That ribbon is available in all of the 2019-2021 In Colors.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays, another of my “go to” stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for more projects.

Parcels Box of Treats

I am late in sharing this cute little box.  I made it as a roommate treat for OnStage Atlanta last month.  It is the perfect size to hold a variety of items.  I filled this one with different chocolates.

 

 

This is the Perfect Parcels Die, which is part of the Parcels & Petals Bundle from page 27 of the Annual Catalog.  This box is pretty easy to fit together and would be great to share goodies with co-workers and friends over the holidays.

Here is another view.

 

 

The box is cut using Mossy Meadow Card Stock.  I wrapped it with a strip of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  The bow is the beautiful Shaded Spruce and Gold Striped Ribbon.

The sentiment is from #Elfie, my go to for a little gift tag!  I added one of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots that was from the Christmastime Is Here Suite of Products.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.  And don’t forget the Year End Closeout sale, some of the products are going quickly!

Forever Blossoms

I have a sneak peak of a gorgeous stamp set from the upcoming Mini Catalog.  (The Mini Catalog is the new name for the Occasions Catalog – – Actually it is a new / old name as that is what they used to be called.)

I love how soft this looks.  Also it is a great pairing of the old / new and mix & match that I love with Stampin’ Up! products.  I needed a birthday card and did not want it to have a Christmas look.  And I had all of the new products laying on my desk to organize.  Of course that is where my eye went to begin creating.

 

 

The pretty flower is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set you can order in January.  It is stamped on Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate Ink.  I wanted a soft look to go with the soft colors of the papers.

I paired the Petal Pink card stock and DSP with Soft Sea Foam card stock.  I added touches of color to the stamped flower just to show a little definition.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and is stamped in Smoky Slate as well.
