Stampin’ Up! Cookie Cutter Bear for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

My share for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop uses the Cookie Cutter Bear from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. I am happy this set has images that can be used for more than just Christmas cards.  And, that it is not retiring with the Holiday Catalog!  

 

Bear

 

This week, we were challenged to use Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral and Pool Party as our colors.  

 

Happy Stampers Bear

 

I started by adhering a panel of A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to a little larger panel of Pool Party card stock with glue.  Next, I stamped the Cookie Cutter bear image from Cookie Cutter Christmas onto a panel of Whisper White, using Smoky Slate ink.  For the eyes, nose, and mouth, I used Basic Black Archival ink.  I punched out the bear with my Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  **See note at the end of the post concerning the stamp set and punch bundle.  the bear’s bow tie was stamped first with Calypso Coral ink, then punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

 

Bear

 

I created some frames with my Layering Squares Framelits Dies and some Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Pool Party card stock.  The bear was adhered to the center of the Whisper White square and it and the other frame were adhered to the front of the card.  This whole panel was adhered to the Smoky Slate card stock base with dimensionals. I used a sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it with Basic Black Archival ink onto t panel of Smoky Slate. The banner was then cut using Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.

 

Beat   

For the inside of the card, I fussy cut the banners from another panel of A Little Foxy DSP and adhered it with glue to the top of my Whisper White panel.  The sentiment is from Sunshine Sayings and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  

You will find a complete list of supplies and card stock cuts at the end of my post.


 

And now, its time to hop along to see what Kristi has created for us today!

Wishing You Joy and a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you! Wishing you joy and happiness on this most special day!  Thank you for following my blog, leaving encouraging comments, and sharing my posts on Pinterest and Facebook!  I used the Hello December 2016 Project Life Accessory Pack to create my card for today.  

 

Joy

I started with Whisper White Thick card stock for my card base and added strips of washi tape (provided in the accessory pack) to the top and bottom of the front.  Next, I pulled out two of the acetate specialty cards and layered them together.  The bottom acetate layer has white and silver trees.  The top acetate layer is the silver “joy”.  Next, I cut out a panel of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper the same size as the acetate layers and glued it to acetate by dotting small specks of glue on each Christmas tree shape.  

 

Joy

 

I cut a panel of Silver Foil card stock as a frame for the acetate layers and glued them together.  Three stars from the accessory pack were added to the front under the sentiment.  Finally, I added dimensionals and popped the art panel onto the front of the card.  

 

Joy

I think my favorite part of the card is the inside sentiment.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light stamp set for this.  It was stamped with Versa Mark and Silver Emboss Powder sprinkled over it.  Then, I flicked off the excess and heat embossed it.  The sentiment panel is Whisper White with Silver Foil layered underneath it.  For the final touch, I added more of the washi tape to the very bottom.  

You will find a list of supplies as well as card stock cuts in inches at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Thanks

I’m sharing a card today using the All Things Thanks stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog, available on January 4th.  

All Things Thanks

 

I started with a panel of Presents & Pinecones DSP (on sale now) and adhered it to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with glue. Next, I cut a length of Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon and wrapped it around those 2 panels, securing it to the back with some scotch tape.  Then, I popped it onto my Whisper White note card with dimensionals.

 

All things Thanks

 

I pulled out my Weather Together stamp set and stamped the gift package image in Basic Black Archival ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Then, I colored in the bow and the polka dots with Mint Macaron and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers.  The package was fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  I inked up the sentiment from All Things Thanks in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  

 

All Things Thanks

 

The sentiment panel was cut using an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and framed with a little larger scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.Dies. For this scalloped oval, I used another panel of the Presents & Pinecones DSP.   I looped some Silver Metallic Thread around dimensionals that were placed on the front before adding the sentiment.  Next, I added some dimensionals to the sentiment panel and popped it onto the front of the card.  Finally I added a little bling with the stars and circles from the Hello December 2016 Hello Life Accessory Pack.  

All Things Thanks can be found on page 35 of the new Occasions catalog.  Don’t have your own catalog?  Please contact me for one.  

You will find the card stock cuts and products used for my card today at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, and welcome to another Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a  sneak peek of the Tasty Trucks stamp set available on January 4th.  Tasty Trucks is found in the Sale-a-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase from Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration.  Yippee!!

Tasty Trucks

 

Here is our sketch:

Tasty Trucks

 

First, I stamped the truck image from Tasty Trucks in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I stamped the tacos in the truck window, also using Basic Black Archival ink.

 

Tasty Trucks

 

The next step was to color in all of the images, so I pulled out some of the new Watercolor Pencils (available on January 4th), a blender pen, and some Stampin’ Write markers.  Once the coloring was completed, I moved on to the sentiment banner.   Isn’t that a cute sentiment?  It was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White and die cut with the smallest banner from the Banners Framelits.  I also cut out a Pumpkin Pie and Emerald Envy banner to stack with the sentiment banner.

 

Tasty Trucks

My Whisper White banner looked too stark, so I fussy cut out a pepper and Mexican Sombrero from the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the end with some liquid glue.  The front layers are Whisper White for the base, Emerald Envy and Festive Birthday DSP.  Then, Pumpkin Pie and more Festive Birthday, and finally, more Emerald Envy and the Whisper White art panel.  

 

Tasty Trucks

I used the Stylized Birthday stamp for the inside sentiment, stamping in Emerald Envy.  The strip at the bottom is another coordinating piece of the Festive Birthday DSP.

Card stock cuts in inches and products used to to create this card are at the end of the post.  


 

Now, I hope you’ll hop on over to Kristi’s blog to see her wonderful creation for today!

Stampin’ Up! Designer Tee Sneak Peek

I have another sneak peek for you today from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Flyer!!  I am sharing one of the images from the Designer Tee stamp set. This stamp set is FREE with any $50 order beginning on January 4, 2017.  

 

Designer Tee

 

I started with a Whisper White note card and adhered a panel from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper.  This DSP is also available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  Next, I punched either end of my Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (the Pear Pizzaz piece) with my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  The sentiment is from the Designer Tee stamp set and was stamped with Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black Archival Inks.  I used one of my Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out. Then, I looped some Linen Thread, adhering it to the back with dimensionals. 

 

Designer Tee

I just love the little train!  First, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then, I inked up the train only using my Basic Black Archival ink and stamped it in front of the sentiment.  

 

Designer Tee

 

Finally, for the finishing touches, I added some Pear Pizzaz Enamel Shapes to the front of the card.   The Designer Tee stamp set coordinates with Custom Tee stamp set and the T-shirt Builder Framelits Dies in the upcoming 2017 Occasions catalog. Fun!! 

Here is a peek at the whole stamp set:

Stampin’ Up! So In Love Sneak Peek

Today I am sharing another sneak peek from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog. Today’s sneak peek is from the So In Love Bundle.  

 

So In Love

 

The So Detailed Thinlets, which are a part of this bundle, are just beautiful!  I cut 2 of this floral die in Very Vanilla card stock.  Then, I  attached them both to the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper by folding down the little tabs on either side and adding some liquid glue.  Each of the dies has a little tab on either side for folding it down onto your card stock, or to a panel to make a belly band.  I also cut a panel of Vellum the same size as the DSP, then slid it in between the die cuts and Falling in Love DSP.  Tiny specks of liquid glue were added to the inside of the die cut out so that it would lie flat against the Vellum.  Finally, the whole panel was adhered to the Sweet Sugarplum card base with glue.

 

So In Love

.

A length of Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon was wrapped around the card front.  Before I finished tying the bow, I added a Falling In Love Embellishment with a strand of Linen Thread.

I stamped a sentiment from So In Love in Sweet Sugarplum onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  Then, I cut it out using my Paper Snips and attached it to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

 

So In Love

 

Inside the card is another sentiment from So In Love, stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.  Next, I stamped the bottom corner with the flower image from the set, using the stamping off technique.

 

So In Love

Remember the So In Love Bundle is available on January 4, 2017.   Save 10% when you purchase So In Love and the So Detailed Thinlets as a bundle!  

Card stock cuts and a list of products used in today’s card will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Hang Your Stocking Mini Treat Bags

Today I have a couple of Mini Treat Bags using the Hang Your Stocking Bundle, all ready to stuff with some goodies.  I hadn’t used the Mini Treat Bags Thinlets in a while and decided to pull them out and create something.  

 

Mini Treat Bags

 

If you are looking for a great little bag that comes together quickly and that you can decorate in any way your heart desires, this one is it!  The Mini-Treat Bag Thinlets have been around for a while, and I see why, they are really versatile.  I also love the Hang Your Stocking bundle for Christmas this year, so I pulled it out to decorate the fronts of these bags.  

I used Mint Macaron card stock for the actual bags, and decorated them with one of the snowflake stamps from Hang Your Stocking.  They were stamped randomly onto the fronts with Mint Macaron ink, then I went over them with Wink of Stella.  The snow flakes are sparkling, but you cannot tell in the photo!

Mini Treat Bag

I used a sentiment from Tin of Tags for this mini treat bag, stamping it in Emerald Envy ink.  The holly and berries are from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and are stamped in Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler inks.  For the banner, I used some Presents and Pinecones DSP and the Banners Framelits to die cut it.  

 

Mini Treat Bag

For this mini treat bag, I die cut Noel with the Christmas Stocking Thinlets Dies and carefully added dots of liquid glue to attach it to the bottom.  I used a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to create stitching for the heel and toe of this stocking.  The frame was die cut with a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits with a plain oval of Cherry Cobbler behind the DSP.  

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post along with the products used.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to this Thursday edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a sneak peek of Beautiful You, from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up, available on January 4th.  

 

Beautiful You

 

And, if you follow the Happy Stampers, you know this week is a color challenge:

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge

 

I fell in love with Beautiful You the minute I saw it at OnStage Atlanta in November!  Is is such a cool set of stamps.  I know you will love it, too.  By now, you have probably seen it out on Pinterest, but I know you will see more of it very soon.  You can use water coloring, as I did, or Stampin’ write Markers, or the new Watercolor Pencils available January 4th, to color in your images.  I have seen some cards, though, with just the outline of the woman stamped that are just as beautiful as the colored in ones.  

 

Beautiful You

I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink onto Water Color paper.  Once dry, I used my Dapper Denim and Aqua Painter to color the skirt and dress.  Next, I  water colored the hat with Emerald Envy. I left a little “shadow” of both colors to the left of the dress and hat, then colored a little on the ground with Emerald Envy.

 

Beautiful You

 

The Beautiful You sentiment was stamped onto a panel of watercolor paper in Stazon Black ink.  I then water colored with Emerald Envy over the larger words.  Once it was dry, I used an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die to cut it out. The ribbon is 3/8″ Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta from the combo pack, on sale now for $4.50!  

 

Beautiful You

I used another of the sentiments from Beautiful You and stamped it also in Stazon Black ink.  I added a little water color wash over it using some of the Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks again.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.

Let’s Celebrate! for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Let's Celebrate

Thanks for joining in on our blog hop for this month!  We have a Celebrate theme, so Let’s Celebrate!  My share is a decorated gift box and matching card using the Here’s To Cheers Stamp set and Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies from Stampin’ Up! 

Let's Celebrate

 

Have you needed a gift box and did not have just the right one, or gone to the store to purchase a gift and the store is out of gift boxes?  Well, that happened to me recently, and that is what inspired me to make my own gift box.  That’s when Stampin’ Up! came to the rescue.  I saw this wonderful tutorial by Donna from Stampin’ Up! on creating your own gift packaging.  I will not write out the steps, you can watch it for yourself right HERE.  Wonderful instructions!

Here are photos of the box un-decorated:

I used the Here’s To Cheers Stamp set to stamp the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum (this is beginning to be one of my favorite colors!) My Layering Circles Framelits Dies were used to cut out a circle around the sentiment and frame it with a Sweet Sugarplum scalloped circle.  Next, I die cut the Soft Sky tag from the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, snipping off the portion normally used to create a bottle tag.  I also used some Silver Foil to die cut the beautiful cut work that is on the tag and adhered it with glue. Finally,  I ran a length of the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon through the tag and around the box and adhered it with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The bow was added to the other ribbon with glue dots.

I know the box is pretty all by itself, but I really wanted to add a card, so I duplicated the tag and added a little more flair.

For the backdrop on my whisper White Notecard, I stamped the starry image from Star of Light in Soft Sky ink, adding a few extra star images around.  The ribbon was attached with Tear & Tape, then I layered the decorated tag, a Silver Foil doily and the sentiment circles with dimensionals.  

And here is the inside of the Let’s Celebrate card:

I stamped the star images from Star of Light in Soft Sky and the Stylized Birthday stamp in Sweet Sugarplum. 

A list of card stock cuts and products used in my card and box will be at the end of the post.
