Stampin’ Up! Cozy Christmas

I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my card today:

Cozy Christmas Card-iology by Jari

The Home for Christmas DSP has been so versatile for so many Christmas cards, too!  Don’t you just love it when a card comes together quickly?

Cozy Christmas 001 Card-iology by Jari

I started by cutting out a circle of the Home for Christmas DSP with one of my Circles Thinlets Dies, making sure I centered the tree and packages.  Next, I adhered a panel of the Silent Night sheet music from the same pack of DSP to a panel of Real Red with Multipurpose glue.  I cut the striped panel from the Home for Christmas DSP and adhered it to the Mint Macaron card base with MP glue.  Then, I cut a length of Mint Macaron 1″ Dotted Lace Trim and wrapped it around the sheet music panel and tied a bow.  This panel was then popped onto the card base with Dimensionals.

Cozy Christmas 3 Card-iology by Jari

I trimmed off the left side of my Christmas tree circle and popped it onto the front with Diimensionals, then added the Home for Christmas designer button (star) with a glue dot to the top of the tree.  I fussy cut the stacked packages and added that piece with Dimensionals.  The sentiment from Cozy Christmas was stamped first in Versa Mark ink, then sprinkled with Black Stampin’ Emboss powder and heated with my Heat Tool till set.  I used the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims dies to cut it out, then added a Home for Christmas Enamel Dot to the end before I popped it onto the front with Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment, also from Cozy Christmas, was colored with Mint Macaron, Real Red, Mossy Meadow and Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write markers and stamped onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock

Card stock cuts in inches may be found at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Christmas for Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving!  We are all so very thankful for all of you stampers out there who join us each week for our Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.  Today’s challenge is another sketch:

1002368_1282828098410429_1158247532917635064_nI used the Cozy Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my share today.

 

Cozy Christmas Card-iology by Jari

This is another very quick and easy card. I started by stamping the sentiment from the Cozy Christmas stamp set onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  How did I get all of the different colors?  I used my Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Delightful Dijon, and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Markers and colored in the words, then huffed my hot little breath onto the rubber before stamping.  I used the 2 1/2″ Circle punch to cut it out and then adhered that circle to another circle cut from Real Red cardstock with the Circles Framelits Die with snail.Cozy Christmas 2 Cardiology by JariSanta and his sleigh, also from the Cozy Christmas set, was inked in Versa mark and sprinkled with Black Embossing powder and heated with my Heat tool onto a panel of Home For Christmas DSP.  Once dry and cool, I ran it through the Big Shot inside the Softly Falling TIEF to create a more snowy looking scene.  This panel was layered onto a panel of Mossy Meadow with snail and then snailed to the Real Red card base.  The sentiment was added to the front with Dimensionals.  The Snowflake Element has a small piece of Dimensional behind the Mossy Meadow Enamel Dot and a little glue from my Glue Pen was dabbed onto the ends of the snowflake overlapping the circles.  I used another piece of the Home for Christmas DSP to line my Very Vanilla envelope.  Oops, I almost forgot to share the inside:

Cozy Christmas

It was stamped in Real Red and Mossy Meadow inks using another of the stamps from the Cozy Christmas set.

Finally, the back flap of the envelope needed a little decorating:

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Christmas for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop

11960226_1268896359803603_8583437756952711798_n

Welcome to another Thursday Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge:

12096151_1282827851743787_1607856579373216924_n We are using some of my favorite holiday colors again!  I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Handmade for the Holidays catalog.  My card makes me think of an old-fashioned, home-spun Christmas.

Cozy Christmas Card-iology by Jari

I began by stamping the sentiment image onto a piece of Crumb Cake card stock in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled on some Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  Once it had dried, I die cut it with one of the Stars Framelits.  I used the largest Star die to cut the piece of polka dot paper from Merry Moments DSP and adhered the two with Multipurpose glue.  Then, I cut out more stars and layered them using more of the Merry Moments DSP to pick up all of my challenge colors.

Cozy Christmas 2 Card-iology by JariI placed a panel of Crumb Cake card stock in the Lucky Stars TIEF (sorry I forgot to put this in the list of products used todayand dry embossed it with my Big Shot.  That layer was snailed to a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  All of the smaller stars were adhered to the front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then I wrapped Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Baker’s twine around the middle and popped this layer onto the Old Olive base with Dimensionals.  The top of the large star looked a little bare, so I die cut a bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and attached it with a glue dot. Old Olive candy dots finished off the middle of the bow and 2 of the stars. I popped up the largest star with the sentiment onto the card with Dimensionals.

Cozy Christmas Card-iology by JariThe inside was also stamped with a sentiment from Cozy Christmas with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the bottom of this post.


Now, on to see what Kristi Gray has designed for us today!  I hope you will plan on traveling all the way around the hop for some great projects from all of the Happy Stampers Team.
