Merry Frosted Christmas

Good morning! I hope you’re doing well this week. I am doing okay. The Cough is still hanging around, but at this point it is just annoying. I also had a weird allergic reaction to a new gluten-free flour blend (!!!) last week and had hives for the whole week, but the hives finally seem to be gone, so yay for that. I’m in full holiday prep mode now.

Speaking of holidays, our challenge at Stamp Ink Paper this week is holiday-themed, and we would love for you to play along with the challenge this week. Make sure you check out all the design team inspiration over at the challenge blog.

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas holiday card using Frosted Foliage bundle with Frosted Frames dies, Perfectly Plaid stamps, Timeless Label punch, ombre snowflakes, ombre sentiment - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts
  • Card base: Pool Party, 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″
  • Card front: Whisper White, 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • The snowflakes on the card front are from the Frosted Foliage stamp set. They are stamped, left to right, in Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Pretty Peacock.
  • I used the Sparkle Glimmer Paper for the frame and the snowflakes. I added color to the glimmer paper using sponge brayers and Bermuda Bay ink. I cut out the frame with the Frosted Frames dies, then cut out two more from Whisper White cardstock, then stacked the die cuts together with liquid glue for dimension. I also cut out two snowflakes using another die from the same set. I glued the bigger snowflake and the frame to the card front.

  • I inked the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Pool Party, then inked the right two-thirds with Bermuda Bay, then inked the right third with Pretty Peacock. I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock, then punched out the sentiment with the Timeless Label punch. I glued the smaller snowflake to the sentiment label.
  • I colored Clear Faceted Gems and Rhinestone Basic Jewels with Dark Pretty Peacock and Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends and added them to the card.

  • I had cut off a 1-inch strip of the card front, and I glued it to the left of the 5-1/4″ x 4″ card liner. I also stamped the inside sentiment, from Frosted Foliage, in Pretty Peacock ink.

Winds of Thanks

Good morning! I hope you’re doing well this week. I have a cough / laryngitis AGAIN, and it is beating me up. But we had our last day of homeschool co-op for the semester yesterday, and y’all, I have already had pecan pie this year, so I can’t complain TOO much. The big kids are starting martial arts this week, and the baby is starting some exercise classes next week, so I’m excited to see how all of that goes.

Our challenge at Stamp Ink Paper this week is the theme “Thankful,” which is appropriate considering that it is PIE season in America.

Stampin' Up! Winds of Change and Sweetly Swirled stamps, Come Sail Away paper, Ornate Frames Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, watercolor pencils - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts
  • Card base: Night of Navy, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″
  • Designer series paper (DSP): Come Sail Away, 2-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I glued it down with liquid glue.

  • For my focal piece, I stamped the windmill image from the Winds of Change stamp set on Shimmery White Cardstock in Jet Black StazOn ink, then colored it with my watercolor pencils. I used Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Early Espresso, and Basic Gray for the windmill. I used Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green for the tulips. To get such vibrant colors from the watercolor pencils, wet the pencil tip before coloring with the pencil, then spread it with a wet paintbrush. I used a Wink of Stella brush for my watercoloring. Then I fussy-cut the image out with Snips (because I messed up my sky and couldn’t save it).
  • I cut a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock out with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangles die. I popped the windmill image up on Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals on the stitched rectangle, then added the rectangle to the card with Dimensionals (double-stacking under the windmill blades where they go off the rectangle).

  • The sentiment is from the Sweetly Swirled stamp set. I inked it up in Balmy Blue ink, then rocked both the top of the stamp and the bottom of the stamp into Night of Navy ink and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out with a frame from the Ornate Frames dies, then added it to the card with Dimensionals.
  • I finished off the card with some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Gold Leaf Thanks

Good morning! I hope you’re doing well this week. We are good here, all recovered from the Halloween sugar comas and all that.

This week at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a fairly broad color challenge — orange, red, and brown. I used Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso for my color palette, with a little gold thrown in. Make sure to head over to the design team blog for some inspiration. We would love to see you play along with our challenge!

  • To make the background, I cut a sheet of masking paper down to 4″ x 5-1/4″, the same size as my card front. I die cut the large leaf from the Gathered Leaves Dies out of the masking paper and set the cut leaf aside. I peeled off the release paper and covered the card front with the masking paper. I sponged Delicata Gold Glitz ink into the leaf space with a Sponge Dauber, then peeled off the masking paper from the card front.
  • I removed the release paper from the leaf die cut and covered the gold leaf. Then I used my makeup brushes (cheap toothbrush-style makeup brushes from Amazon) to sponge Cherry Cobbler ink diagonally across the center of the leaf. Then I brushed Pumpkin Pie ink on either side of the Cherry Cobbler and blended… and blended… and blended until I liked the ink blend. I removed the leaf mask.

  • I die cut three “Thanksgiving”s out of Early Espresso cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and stacked them together with liquid glue. I positioned them where I wanted them on the card, then removed them to stamp “Happy” from the A Wish For Everything stamp set in Early Espresso ink. Then I glued down the stacked die cut “Thanksgiving”.
  • I wrapped the woven ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow, then mounted the card front on the base with Dimensionals.

  • Yeah, just wanted to show you how gorgeous that Golden Glitz ink is. Soooo pretty.
