Stampin’ Up! Wonderland for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop


Hi Stampers, it’s Thursday, and another Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.   So glad you joined our color challenge this week!

HSBH12063381_1282828331743739_2651464956254442325_nI used the wonderful Wonderland stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  It is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Handmade for the Holidays catalog this year.  It is not returning, so, you need to order it quickly before it retires forever.  You have until January 4th, 2016, and then it is gone. (Or until supplies last)

Wonderland Card-iology by Jari

The colors this week really helped to make this a fun Christmas Card.  I sponged the Whisper White panel with Soft Sky and Night of Navy inks after I had masked off the moon image with a post it note punched out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.

Then I stamped the Wonderland trees in Night of Navy-some full strength and some using the stamping off technique across the panel.Wonderland 2 Card-iiology by JariThe snowflakes were stamped in Versa Mark ink and dusted with Silver Embossing Powder and heated with my Heat Tool till shiny and dry. Then I did the same with the Santa and his sleigh image from the Cozy Christmas stamp set. The image panel was glued to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock with Multipurpose glue, then a length of Night of Navy 1/2″ seam binding ribbon attached to the bottom with a little tear and tape. Next, I glued this piece to a panel of Silver Foil with Multipurpose glue and popped it onto the Soft Sky card base with Dimensionals.

The inside images from Wonderland were stamped with Night of Navy ink and Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder.  I chose the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and also used Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderland

My card today is from the Wonderland stamp set from the Handmade for the Holidays Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I love, love, love this set-even with the deer horns! I am not a hunter, but have sons and a son-in-law who are avid deer hunters.  They love to try and hang those antlers right where everyone can see them the minute you walk in the house.  But my daughter and I out-smart them and put them in moe inconspicuous places!

Wonderland Card-iology by JariI stamped the trees in Basic Black Archival ink directly onto the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum.  If you try this, it takes a while for the ink to dry, so be patient.  While waiting, I stamped the sentiment onto a different  piece of the Vellum.  I tapped the Snowflake Element onto my Versa Mark ink pad and sprinkled it with Gold Embossing powder, then heated it with my Heat Tool.  Sorry it looks a little dark in the picture!

I cut the ends of the sentiment with the Banner Triple Punch and did the same to a strip of Whisper White thick cardstock that I attached the vellum to.  I probably would have been easier to do them both at the same time-so if you try this, don’t do as I did!  The panel of trees was attached to the Whisper White thick cardstock with the fine tip glue pen.  I cut a length of Gold Cording trim and attached the ends to the back of the banner with a small piece of tape, then added dimensionals and adhered it to the front of the card.  Next, the snowflke was added to the banner with a couple of glue dots and a dimensional to the middle on the back.  The iced Rhinestone hides the dimensional that I placed under the center of the snowflake.  Some regular Rhinestones were then added to the front for a little more sparkle.

I did not add a sentiment to the inside, but did add some of the Winter Wonderland Washi Tape along the bottom of the card.
