Stampin’ Up! Christmas Scottie Bundle

I have another card for you today using the Scottie Dog Punch but I also used the stamp set, Christmas Scottie, which is also included in the Christmas Scottie Bundle along with the Scottie Dog Punch. Yesterday’s card was an autumn card and today I have a Christmas card using Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper and one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I added a piece of Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). Next, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies and then ran that piece through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

 

I cut the dog out of Basic Black cardstock using the Scottie Dog Punch. I used the punch again to cut a bow out of Balmy Blue cardstock and then placed it inside the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and embossed it.  I attached the bow to the dog using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and then added our regular sized Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the dog and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using the stamp set, Christmas Scottie, and then cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it below the dog.

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle

Today’s card was created using the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes and the Cup of Tea Bundle which includes the Cup of Tea stamp set and Teacup Dies

 

 

Tea Boutique

 

I started with one of the Tahitian Tide card bases included in the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes.  Then I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink using the stamp set, Cup of Tea, towards the bottom of the scalloped rectangle so I’d have plenty of room for the teacup and greenery.

 

 

 

I used the Teacup Dies to cut a teacup out of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper found in the 2022-2024 In Color 6″  x 6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment pack. Before adhering it to the front of the card, I stamped the greenery using Granny Apple Green ink and for the flowers, Sweet Sorbet ink. 

 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Fine Sparkle Gems around the teacup. I love the decorative envelopes that are included with the card bases!

Last Day for These Weekly Deals

 

 

Thanks for stopping by today! 

 

Perfect Partners Promotion Coming on September 1st

 

The card I’m sharing today was made using the Apple Harvest Bundle which will be available beginning September 1st during the Perfect Partners Promotion! Six new dies will be introduced on September 1st that coordinate with sets in our Annual and Mini Catalogs. The dies can be purchased separately or in a bundle with the coordinating stamp set. BUT, these dies are only available during the month of September and while supplies last! 

Click the image below for the Perfect Partners Promotion flyer or HERE (there are two pages).

I started with a piece of Granny Green cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I adhered two squares of In Color 2022-2024 Designer Series Paper (in Parakeet Party) to a piece of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the card front. 

 

 

 

I stamped the apples and leaves in Memento Ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set Apple Harvest. The apples were colored using Real Red Stampin’ Blends (Light & Dark) and the leaves were colored with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends (Light & Dark). The stems were colored with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends (Light). I cut them out with the Apple Blossoms Dies #160255 (available on September 1st) and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

 

 

I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock.  Then, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink (using the Apple Harvest stamp set) towards the bottom of the rectangle.  I adhered the apples to the rectangle and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.  I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside to complete the card.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Bundle

Today’s card features the Blessings of Home Bundle which includes the Blessings of Home stamp set and the Flowers of Home Dies.  I also used the Scalloped Contours Dies and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder

Edited to Add:  When you spend $100 during Sale-a-Bration, you can earn the Flower of Home Dies absolutely FREE. You must use this item number when choosing these dies as your free gift: #163095. If you use the item number in the catalog, it won’t come up FREE.  This offer is good until August 31, 2022 or while supplies last. You can see this Sale-a-Bration product HERE

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card. Then I ran a piece of Basic White cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card base. 

 

 

 

Next, I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a rectangle out of a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink at the bottom of the rectangle.  This sentiment had more words on it than I wanted so I covered the part I didn’t want with Post It Tape, inked up the stamp, removed the tape and stamped it onto my rectangle. I did this for another card recently and you can see that post here

 

 

 

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flowers using Memento Ink (this is the ink to use when using Stampin’ Blends). I colored the flowers using these Stampin’ Blends:  Melon Mambo (light & dark), Old Olive (light and dark) and Daffodil Delight (light). After coloring it, I cut it out using the Flowers of Home Dies.  I thought about popping the flowers up with Dimensionals but decided against it and just used regular adhesive but I did add Dimensionals to the back of the rectangle before adhering it to the front of the card.

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the flowers.

Below you’ll find all the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used for today’s card. If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store.

It’s totally up to you.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings

Today’s cards were made using baby wipes, Stampin’ Ink Refills and the stamp set, Soft Seedlings. This technique is super easy and you’ll never get the same results. 

 

 

 

I made these cards while I was staying at my mom’s and I didn’t have all the colors of ink refills that I wanted but I did have Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight so I went with those two colors. Ideally I would have liked to use Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. I took four baby wipes and folded them in half and then placed them on a non porous surface.  Then I started adding drops of ink refill all over the wipes.  This acts a stamp pad! Then I inked up the leaf stamp into my homemade stamp pad and then stamped it onto Basic White cardstock. I did add additional drops to get a deeper color. It’s all experimental and there’s no right or wrong way to do this technique!

 

 

I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut the leaves “out” and tried using a variety of cardstock colors and embossing folders.  For the card above, I used the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink using the stamp set, Soft Seedlings. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the leaf piece before adding it to the card. I also used Iridescent Rhinestones on all four cards.. 

 


 

For this next card, I used Cajun Craze cardstock for the base of my card and again used the Scalloped Contours Dies.

 

 

 

This next card has a Daffodil Delight card base and I used the Twigs & Springs Embossing Folder (which also comes with a die). 

 

 

 

For this last card, I used a Cajun Craze card base and the Twigs & Springs Embossing Folder. 

 

 

I hope you’ll give this technique a try! I’d recommend picking three colors and go for it!
