Wonderful Year for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to our Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a card using Wonderful Year from Stampin’ Up!  Wonderful Year has two very large sentiments that create quite a statement for your Christmas cards this year.  

 

Here is our color challenge for this week:

 

wonderful for Happy Stampers

 

wonderful Year

 

I began by inking up the Wishing You a Joyful Christmas stamp from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler ink.  Before stamping, I used a baby wipe to clean off the bough and berry image on either side of the sentiment.   Then, I used my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write marker to color them in, huffed all over the ink and stamped onto a square panel of Whisper White card stock.  I added two Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes where the berries would be.  A frame of Emerald Envy card stock was adhered to the sentiiment panel with liquid glue.  

 

Wonderful Year

 

I cut a narrow panel from Presents & Pinecones DSP (part of the buy 3 get 1 free sale going on right now), and glued it to a panel of Emerald Envy card stock (striped) from the 2016-2018 In color Designer Series Paper Stacks.  That panel was then glued to a little larger panel of Emerald Envy card stock before popping it onto the Mint Macaron card stock base with dimensionals.  Using the small bow from the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies, I die cut three bows in Cherry Cobbler.  Those three are glued together with tiny dots of liquid glue.

 I cut a length of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and pulled one end through the Holly Christmas Trinket, wrapped it around the loops of the bow, tied a knot and trimmed off the ends.  A couple of glue dots were added to the back to secure it to the front of the sentiment panel, then the panel added to the front of the card with dimensionals. 

 

Wonderful Year

 

 

The inside Whisper White panel is stamped with another of the sentiments from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy inks.  I used another panel of the Emerald Envy In Colors DSP as a frame for the sentiment panel, and again glued them with liquid glue.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used will be at the end of my post.

Welcome to the Happy Stampers Blog Hop, where I am sharing Wonderful Year from Stampin’ Up!   We’re glad you stopped in to “hop” around to all of our blogs.  Today, we have a sketch challenge, why don’t you play along, too?

Wonderful Year

 

I started with a panel of Whisper White for the card base.  Next, I adhered a panel of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper to a panel of Emerald Envy with liquid glue.  This is my go-to adhesive because it is forgiving-meaning it will allow you to wiggle your card stock a little if you haven’t placed it as straight as you wanted to at first!

I love the large sentiments in Wonderful Year, perfect for the season.  I really thought of coloring my stamp with my Stampin’ Write Markers to give it some depth, but for a quick and easy card, one color does the trick.  I used Cherry Cobbler and stamped it on a panel of Whisper White, then gave it a frame with some Emerald Envy card stock.  

 

Wonderful Year

 

I made a bow with my Bow Builder Punch, using some Cherry Cobbler card stock and Cherry Cobbler striped paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack. Before adding the bow to the front of my card, I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock to the left side with liquid glue.  The bow is attached with Mini Glue Dots.  I then popped on the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added one Metallic Enamel Shape star.

 

 

 

Wonderful Year

 

 

The inside sentiment from Wonderful Year was inked with Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers, huffed on a couple of times, and stamped onto the Whisper White card stock panel.  I added some more of the striped Cherry Cobbler DSP and three Metallic Enamel Shapes stars before adhering this panel onto the card base.

Card stock cuts in inches and Stampin’ Up! Products used will be listed at the end of my post.
