Happiness Surrounds This Snowfall Christmas Card for Hand Stamped Sentiments

Well, it’s time for the last Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for 2018, can you believe it?? It was so much fun making this card. When I found out that the Snowfall thinlit fits over the Happinness Surrounds stamped image perfectly, I was elated! Unfortunately, these bundles are not available now so I sure hope you got them before their promotion ended.

My Secrets to Making This Happiness Surrounds Project

  • The focal image from Happiness Surrounds was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, then the snowflake was cut from the thinlit in Snowfall Thinlit Dies set. I placed a very thin layer of glue to adhere it over the stamped image.

Elegant and Easy Flourish Filigree Christmas Card for the Sisterhood of Crafters

Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving? I sure did – spending it with family is what makes Thanksgiving my favorite holiday. We now have a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters and I am the host, so please play along! It’s a really fun theme – “Use Stitched Dies.” The holidays are closer than ever so getting more cards done is definitely on my mind. When I saw the Stitched Labels Framelits in the new Annual Catalog, it was an answer to my wishes for more detailed dies. Pairing and layering them is just what I love to do! The sentiment here is from Flourish Filigree and coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch. What a great way to make your holiday cards go even faster! AND tools over at Stampin’ Up! are on SALE – today is the last day, so what are you waiting for?

My Secrets to Making This Flourish Filigree Project

  • This card actually started by picking out the stitched die that I wanted to use for the challenge. After cutting it out in Whisper White cardstock, I chose the beautiful designer paper from Frosted Floral collection. This paper is a must-have and will be great all year round!
  • After cutting out all of the floral pieces, I layered them underneath the sentiment, added the Merlot ribbon and popped the sentiment up with dimensionals.

A Best Birds Christmas Card Using Stampin’ Blends for Hand Stamped Sentiments

 

 

We are starting a new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments with a fun Mood Board. I am absolutely positive that there’s an image here that will spark your creativity! As soon as I saw those pretty birds, I knew that I would be inking up Best Birds, my all-time favorite bird stamp set. It is absolutely perfect for all us bird loving stampers and has coordinating thinlits with even more birds. The sentiments are for many different occasions in a beautiful font. Love it!!

 

 

 

 

Easy Christmas Card featuring #BestBirds, #BlendedSeasons, #Christmas, #Holiday, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

My Secrets to Making This Best Birds Project

  • This card was so much fun to make and came together quite quickly. The size is A6 (my current favorite at 4 1/2″ x 6 1/4″). After choosing the bird image to stamp, I inked it up in Memento Black ink and started coloring it with my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends, and adding a few little dabs of Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate as well.
  • Then I inked up the holly and berries from Blended Seasons stamp set and colored it with the same colors of Stampin’ Blends.
  • I headed over to my Big Shot station and cut out the bird with the coordinating thinlit and the swirl from Birds & Blooms Thinlits with Call Me Clover cardstock.
  • The Whisper White cardstock was cut to size for the background panel and dry embossed with the Pine Bough TIEF, then the sentiment from Blended Seasons was inked in Call Me Clover at the bottom.
  • The Holly image was cut to 1″ and cropped with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • A little bling goes a long way! Sequins topped with Faceted Dots as well as some Wink of Stella on the pine boughs are a subtle but great touch!!
