Global Stamping Friends Extraordinary Hop - Autumn/Winter & Holiday Catalogue




Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Extraordinary Hop! We are a Group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world. We are here to provide you with some inspiration and most of all to share our love of all things Stampin' Up!

The theme this time is Autumn/ Winter & the New Holiday Catalog. I decided to share a Cut & Flip card that I made using the new Merry Christmas To All Bundle from the New Holiday Catalog. I 1st saw the card style on Pinterest. Bonnie O'neil had made a gorgeous card like this using the Stylish Christmas stamp set. I knew right away that I would use this card style with the Merry Christmas To All Bundle. Kimberley Anne Morris gave it a name, and it stuck.


I don't know about you but I love Die Cut Words. Big or little, I love them. This bundle was 1st on my wish list from the Holiday Catalog.  Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, 4 dies to make all possible combinations. Then there is the Joyous Noel 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper that  has 3 yummy colors. The  Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper coordinates perfectly with Cherry Cobbler too. So I used it to cut the "Merry" out with the Merry Christmas Thinlits. You will fall in love with the rest of this bundle too, just as I did. So here we go with the rest of the card details.

Card Base - Cherry Cobbler Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".
Cut the Card Base Front at 2 3/4" - this becomes the Design Layer Mat.
Card Front DSP - All Is Bright Designer Series Paper - 2 1/2" x 4".
Design Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 2 1/2" x 4".
Inside Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4".
Envelope Flap - All Is Bright DSP - 2 1/4" x 6".
Ink - Cherry Cobbler & Shaded Spruce.

Cut the "Merry" from the Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper. I used Liquid Glue to adhere my Merry to the Design Layer. But this would be a good place to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. Stamp the border around the Christmas in Shaded Spruce Ink. Stamp the Christmas in Cherry Cobbler Ink inside the border. Cut this out with the coordinating die. Adhere the Merry to the Design layer on the upper right side. Adhere the Christmas die cut to the Design layer with Dimensionals. Adhere the Assembled Design Layer to the Design Layer Mat with Liquid Glue or Snail. Stamp the Holly leave scrolls with Shaded Spruce. Adhere the All Is Bright DSP to the Card base with Liquid Glue or Snail. Stamp the Sentiment on the Inside Layer with Cherry Cobbler. Stamp the Scrolls with Shaded Spruce. Adhere the Inside layer to the Inside of the Card Base with Liquid Glue or Snail. Adhere the assembled Design Layer to the Card Base with Liquid Glue or Snail. Adhere the All Is Bright DSP to the Envelope Flap with Liquid Glue or Snail. Trim away the excess with your Snips. This card turned out so cute. I think I will make a video too.

September 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop



Welcome to the September Kre8tors Blog Hop! This months theme is Sympathy. Unfortunately I seem to need more of this type of card lately. Fortunately for us Stampin' Up! provides us with many choices for our expressions of grief and suffering. My choice this time is the Rooted In Nature Bundle as well as the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. The Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper is just beautiful and ready makes the Stamp sets shine.


Card Details:
Card Base - Tranquil Tide Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
Card Front - Petal Pink Cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4".
Rectangle Mat - Tranquil Tide - 2 3/4" x 5".
3 Small Rectangles -  Nature's Poem DSP - 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".
With Love & Sympathy Label Mat - Tranquil Tide - Scraps
With Love & Sympathy Label - Whisper White Cardstock - Scrap
Scalloped Oval Mat - Tranquil Tide - 2 3/4" x 3 3/4".
Stitched Oval - Whisper White - 2 5/8" x 3 5/8"
Inside Layer - Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4".

Ink - Tranquil Tide & Grapefruit Grove.

Stamp the Pine Trees with Tranquil Tide Ink. Do this for the Stitched Oval as well as the Inside Layer. I also stamped the Words Are Never Enough sentiment from the Rooted In Nature set with Tranquil Tide Ink. Stamp the With Love & Sympathy sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings set with Grapefruit Grove Ink on to a scrap of Whisper White. Cut this out with the Classic Label Punch. Cut out a Tranquil Tide Label too. Cut the Tranquil Tide Label down the middle and glue this to the back of the Love & Sympathy Label allowing the Tranquil Tide to show above & below the Whisper White Label. Trim the ends. Cut the Pine trees out with the largest Stitched Shapes Ovals Dies. Cut a Large Scalloped Oval with the Layering Ovals Framelits. Adhere the Scalloped Oval to the back of the Stitched Shapes Oval with Liquid Glue. Adhere the 3 Small Rectangles to the Rectangle Mat with Liquid Glue. Wrap a length of the Nature's Twine around the Rectangle and tie a small bow. Adhere the Rectangle to the lower section of the Card Front with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Ovals to the Card Front with Dimensionals. Adhere the Love & Sympathy Label to the Rectangle with Mini Dimensionals. Add a few green Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the completed Card Front. Fold and Burnish the Card Base. Adhere the Inside Layer to the inside of the Card Base. Adhere the completed Card Front to the Card Base with Liquid Glue.

Global Stamping Friends: Color Feature




Welcome to the September Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. This Month's theme is a Color Feature. Call Me Clover, one of the In Colors for this year is  our Feature  Color and it  is a beautiful bright green.

On September 5th our 2018 Holiday Catalog went live online. So I am combining my Feature Color with a New stamp set and punch.  The Making Christmas Bright Bundle includes the stamp set and the new Christmas Bulb Builder Punch (save 10% when you purchase the bundle). This set also coordinates with the  All Is Bright Designer Series Paper. They even have some cute shaped Paper clips to go with it.


Card Details:
Stamp Sets & Dies - Swirly Frames, Flourish Filigree, Making Christmas Bright, Christmas Staircase Thinlits.
Card Base - Cherry Cobbler Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Card Front - 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
Design Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 3 1/4" x 4 5/8"
Christmas Bulbs - Whisper White Cardstock - Scraps large enough to fit in the punch.
Christmas Pine Sprigs - Shaded Spruce Cardstock - Scraps large enough to use the dies on.
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Call Me Clover & Gray Granite.
Misc - Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, 1/4" Double-Stitched Cherry Cobbler Ribbon, Metallic Enamel Shapes (Retired).

The "Merry" & "Bright" bulbs are stamped with Call Me Clover Ink. So is the Swirly Frame. The "and" Bulb was stamped with Cherry Cobbler. All of the bulb ends were stamped with Gray Granite. The Bulbs and their ends were cut with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. The Sentiment on the front of the card was stamped with Shaded Spruce. The Inside Layer was stamped with Call Me Clover.

❤️I love the way this card turned out. Bright & Fun. I hope you like it too. ❤️
