I stamped "merry Christmas" from the perennial favorite, Petite Pairs, on Whisper White before punching with the Snow Flurry Punch.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Christmas Swaps!

Hey there! I'm continuing my Sunday Swap Day tradition today with some really nice Christmas Card Swaps!

First, Susie Wood created a card I'm planning to CASE for my next Christmas Card Buffet in November. She used the Holly Jolly Greetings set with Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, and Silver. I LOVE the Iced Rhinestone she put in the snowflake center!

Stampin_up_holly_jolly_greetings_1

Rhonda Bassler created an elegant card with the Happy Scenes stamp set, Softly Falling embossing folder, Flurry of Wishes set, and Hearth & Home Thinlets to cut the window. An entirely white card is hard to do justice with a camera. This card is GORGEOUS in person!

Stampin_up_happy_scenes_1

Becy Nidhols also used Happy Scenes and Hearth & Home Thinlets for her swap, adding pops of color with Real Red 1/8" Striped Ribbon, Red Glimmer Paper, and sparkle with White 3/8" Glitter Ribbon:

Stampin_up_happy_scenes_2

Did you spot the unusual use of the Bow Builder Punch? I had never thought to use it as a label!

Stampin' Up! Saturday Swap Day Fall Assortment!

Hey there! I have a pretty nice group of fall swaps to share with you today!

First, Anne Brown combined Into the Woods Designer Paper with Acorny Thank you for her swap, adding a Gold Foil "thanks" cut with a Hello You Thinlet:

Stampin_up_acorny_thank_you_1

Tone-on-tone stamped acorns make a subtle background:

Stampin_up_acorny_thank_you_2

Next, Sandy Carlson used Thankful Forest Friends, including a gorgeous print from the Into the Woods Designer Paper and Into the Woods 3/8"  Cotton Ribbon!

Stampin_up_thankful_forest_friends_1

Thankful Forest Friends has a total of 7 whimsical images that work for the outside and the inside of the card:

Stampin_up_thankful_forest_friends_2

Jenn Gulch also used Thankful Forest Friends and Into the Woods paper for her Corner Flip Card swap:

Stampin_up_thankful_forest_friends_5

Katina Martinez' swap isn't actually fall-themed, but I love how she stamped the wreath from the Circle of Spring on vellum, colored with markers, and accented with punched Itty Bitty Accents flowers. After cutting with the Wonderful Wreath framelit, she mounted on a Whisper White Brick Wall-embossed layer. The Basic Black background was embossed with the Lovely Lace folder.

Stampin_up_circle_of_spring_1

I also love her fresh color combo of Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, and Calypso Coral:

Stampin_up_circle_of_spring_2

Finally, Tamie Ackerson chose Vintage Leaves for her swap. After stamping with Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, and Cajun Craze on the coordinating card stocks, she cut with the Leaflets framelits,then spritzed with alcohol and crumpled each leaf before adding to her creation with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_Up_vintage_leaves_1

The 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon gives an earthy feel. Tamie even tied a few of the threads from the ribbon around the leaf stem.

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonderland Jolly Christmas One More Time!

Hey there! Today I have one more card for you using the Jolly Christmas set, this time using Whisper White, Pool Party, and the Holidays Fancy Foil Vellum: Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_believe_1 - Copy

The "Believe" in in the Jolly Christmas set I silver heat-embossed on Whisper White, then punched with the smaller snowflake of the Snow Flurry Punch. I layered a Pool Party punched snowflake behind it, than added a ribbon and bow with 3/8" Whisper White Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_believe_2 - Copy

I finished off the inside with a silver heat-embossed phrase from Jolly Christmas. I just love the versatility of this set!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop October Edition Theme Fall!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

Hey there! It's time for the October Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay! Our theme this month is Fall and I am really excited about our hop! LOTS of gorgeousness coming your way!

If you are already on the hop, you've probably just come from the lovely Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar Stamps! 

I created today's project for a workshop I'm having on Friday. I used Lighthearted Leaves and used the "glitter splatter" technique.

Stampin_up_lighthearted_leaves_1 - Copy

This card is SPONGED everywhere with Early Espresso ink, which gives such a rich contrast on the stamped leaves of Pool Party, Old Olive, and So Saffron, and makes the design from the Woodland Textured Impressions Folder really pop!

I added gold glitter splatters with watered-down  Multipurpose Liquid glue and our Gold Stampin' Glitter. You can see another card done with this technique HERE

Stampin_up_lighthearted_leaves_2 - Copy

To add the glitter use the GLUE SPLATTER TECHNIQUE:

Squeeze a little Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue onto a plastic plate. Add a few drops of water. Mix with a toothpick. Pick up some of the runny glue with an Aquapainter. Holding the painter over your project, firmly tap near the brushtip with your finger to splatter glue randomly. If the glue won't splatter, add a few more drops of water and try again. Repeat splattering as needed. Sprinkle glitter on the splatters. Tap off excess. Allow glitter to dry. GORGEOUS!

Stampin' up! Winter Wonderland Jolly Christmas!

Hey there. This is the second time I've typed this blog post today. I was almost finished when the internet crashed, taking my post with it. sigh. If I don't get my post up and running by 9:25 it won't email out to you until tomorrow. If you get two posts in one email tomorrow morning, you'll know why!

After I created the Jolly Christmas camo card yesterday, I made this card with a true Christmas theme, starting with a Smoky Slate card base, layered Pool Party with Stampin' Dimensionals, then added a layer of Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with glue dots strategically placed beneath the outer snowflake centers.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_vellum_1 - Copy

The reindeer and snowflakes are silver heat-embossed on Pool Party, cut with an oval framelit, layered onto a Basic Gray oval, and then added to the card with dimensionals. The Versatile Christmas greeting "Merry Christmas" was also silver heat-embossed, then cut with the banner framelit from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims dies. A Winter Wonderland Embellishment finishes it off.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_vellum_2 - Copy

Inside I continued with the silver heat-embossing of the phrases from Versatile Christmas and snowflakes from Jolly Christmas.

Hey there! Today is a swap day Saturday! yay!

To start off, Jan Rodrian kept her creation clean & simple by cutting her plain card stock leaves with the Leaflet Framelits and embossing the background with the Woodland folder:

Stampin_up_petite_pairs_1

She had a little thanksgiving greeting inside:

Stampin_up_petitie_pairs_2

Next, Judi Anderson covered the "& tasty dishes" phrase from Among the Branches with "my friend" from You're So Sweet, making this stamp more versatile!

Stampin_up_among_the_branches_1

Laura Milligan used Thankful Forest Friends for her clean & simple card:

Stampin_up_thankful_forest_friends_1

Rhonda Bassler used Lighthearted Leaves, stamping on one layer of cardstock and then cutting it apart to add to her card base.

Stampin_up_lighthearted_leaves_3

Finally, Amy Storrie cut the 'window" for the Lighthearted Leaves leaf with the matching framelit, then inserted the white-heat-embossed leaf that she also sponged with colors to match the strip of Into the Woods Designer Paper along the bottom.

Into the Woods 3/8" Ribbon, an Iced Rhinestone, a strip of Rich Razzleberry washi tape from the Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape, and an Into the Woods Element finish it off nicely:
