Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card for the Krew Retreat

I am so excited! I leave tomorrow for a Stampin’ Retreat with 11 other team members from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew in Blue Ridge, GA. As part of our festivities, we are doing a Shoebox Share where we bring card kits for a card we designed for each of the ladies in attendance. We will go home with 11 different cards! How fun! This is the card I made. It features the Merriest Moments Bundle (Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set + Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and 16 coordinating dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. I hope you enjoy the card!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock:  4 1/4″ x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock:  4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (front panel) and 3″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting)
  • Be Dazzling 6×6 Specialty Paper*: 1″ x 2 1/2″ (die cutting)

The Creating

I ran the Basic White panel through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder with the stitched rectangle die in place inside the folder [Be aware: I have seen videos stating the folder is not made to support this rectangle die at the same time as embossing, recommending the embossed image be die cut thereafter. I have found that the die snugs in place and it has not damaged my folder in any way with repeated runs. However, use together at your own risk.]

I placed the embossed panel on the card front, ensuring even margins, and lightly marked the top left and bottom right corners of the die cut opening with a pencil. I then used the marks to line up the stitched rectangle die on the card front, secured it in place with correction tape, and passed it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. There are two stitched rectangle die cuts left – one for the inside of this card and one for another project.

I stamped the sentiment on stitched rectangle die cut in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the leaves on the envelope with Pear Pizzazz and the poinsettias with Petal Pink Ink. On the Basic White 3″x 5″ panel, I stamped the large and small poinsettias in Petal Pink Ink, and two leafy sprigs and two smaller fir sprigs in Pear Pizzazz. I die cut these with the coordinating dies. I also die cut the small blooms from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper* from Sale-a-bration.

I adhered the embossed panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I inserted the sentiment die cut through the opening on the front of the card so that it was perfectly in place, opened the card front and marked the left edge of the die cut lightly with a pencil. I stamped the images to the left of the mark as shown. All pencil marks were erased. I closed the card front, applied the glue to the back of the sentiment die cut and inserted it through the opening to adhere it into place.

On the front, I popped on the leafy die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used a Stampin’ Dimensionals on the lower right corner of the poinsettia and liquid glue where it touched the leaves. I tucked the fir die cuts in, trimming with Paper Snips if needed. I added the sparkly blooms with Mini Glue Dots and embellished with three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Halloween Fun Fold for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

    Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for September! Today we are sharing “Halloween Fun” projects. You will find links at the bottom of my post to hop you along the way to my teammate’s projects. Be sure to visit them all to see how each interpreted the theme. I hope you will enjoy what I made for you!

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 58) to make this “Halloween Fun” card.  It is a fun fold that I saw presented by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 8″ x 5-1/4″, scored at 4″ and 6″ (inside panel), the 4th largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the tag die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the pumpkin die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Basic Black Cardstock: bat die cut and broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: pumpkin leaves die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Pattern Party Host DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (front panel), 1-3/4″ x 5″ and 6″ x 2-1/4″ (env)

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP panel to the front of the Basic White Thick card base. I centered the 4th largest die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (I saved the cut out for another card).

    Next, I stamped the “Wishing You A Trick-Or-Treating, Candy-Eating, Frightful-Delightful Time!” sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink centered in the left (and largest) section of the Basic White inside panel. I added the bats from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped “Happy Halloween” from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set on the tag die cut in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

    I adhered the 1-3/4″ x 5″ DSP to the middle section of the panel. I folded the inside panel so that it makes a valley at the 4″ score and a peak at 6″ score (this will “hide” the DSP panel). I adhered the largest panel (with the sentiment) to the inside of the card base, leaving an even margin around the edges. I closed the card front and applied adhesive to the folded edge that is visible through the die cut opening and inserted the Pumpkin Pie Stitched So Sweetly die cut into the opening to glue it into place (being sure to line up the scalloped edges). Super easy!

    I stamped the bats on the top left corner of the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and on the front of the envelope. I snipped the broom handle from the Bumblebee broom die cut and adhered the “straw” portion over the Basic Black broom die cut. I dry fit the Seasonal Swirls die cuts onto the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and then adhered them in place. The bat, the top pumpkin leaf and the pumpkin are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The others are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

    I adhered the decorated Basic White die cut onto the Pumpkin Pie die cut (in the opening) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the sentiment tag with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals being sure to center it so that it did not impeded the opening of the card front. Lastly, I adhered the remaining DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Christmas Card

    This card is made with the Christmas Season Bundle (Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Labels Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. I volunteered to create and present a card using this bundle at our upcoming Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting on Sunday. Our team stamps together quarterly via Zoom/FB and it’s lots of fun. It’s my first time presenting, so if you happen to think about me Sunday, say a little prayer all goes smoothly :). If our stampin’ meeting sounds fun and you would like to talk about joining us and getting a discount on your Stampin’ Up! products, drop me an email and I’ll tell you how! Enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Crumb Cake Cardstock:  4 1/4″ x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” (card base) and 3″ x 7″ (stamping/die cutting)
    • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock:  4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (front panel)
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (embossing)
    • Painted Christmas 12×12 DSP: 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel), 1/2″ x 4 1/8″ (inside strip)

    The Creating

    I stamped the sentiments with Real Red Ink using the Stamparatus (optional) on the inside of the card and on the Crumb Cake panel. [Tips:  Due to the fine lines of the sentiments, I find the Stamparatus helpful when stamping them on darker colored cardstocks so that they can be stamped twice if needed.  I placed the label die on the cardstock to assist with approximate placement.  It can be fine tuned when die cutting.] 

    I stamped the leafy image in Soft Succulent Ink on the inside of the card, on the Crumb Cake panel and on the edge of the envelope. I stamped the pine sprigs twice each in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Crumb Cake panel and the envelope. I stamped the pinecone detail image in Early Expresso Ink on the Crumb Cake panel and on the envelope (mask the leafy stamped image if necessary).  I stamped the pinecone overlay in 2nd generation Soft Suede Ink on the envelope and on the Crumb Cake panel.  On the inside of the card base, I stamped 3 berries in Real Red (just ink 3 or you can mask one on the stamp before inking). I repeated on the envelope and the Crumb Cake panel (all 4 berries). 

    I die cut the images on the cardstock with the coordinating dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I used Paper Snips to trim one of the berries from the other three. I also passed the Evening Evergreen panel through the Stampin’ Emboss Machine inside the pine design Wintery 3D Embossing Folder.

    I adhered the embossed panel and the DSP panel to the Cherry Cobbler panel leaving the same margin around the outer edges. Then I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2” Ribbon around the panel, over the seam, and secured it to the back with Mini Glue Dots.  I adhered the panel to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

    I dry fit the die cuts on the card front.  First, I adhered the pinecone to the card with liquid glue and then made two “bundles” with the remaining elements attaching them together with Mini Glue Dots:  1) the leafy image, a gold holly leaf and a berry, 2) the two pine sprigs, 3 berries and 2 gold holly leaves.  I adhered these to the back of the sentiment label and applied the decorated label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back to pop it up. I adhered the DSP strip inside the card with liquid glue.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth DSP Scraps Thanksgiving Card

    This is a fun card that utilizes little paper scraps from your favorite Designer Series Paper. It doesn’t require measuring or coloring and the stamping is minimal. I used scraps from the Beauty of the Earth 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper from the 2020-22 Annual Catalog for this Thanksgiving card. The sentiments are from A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set and the dies from Harvest Dies in the July – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. I hope you enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock:  4 1/2″ x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” (card base)
    • Bumblebee Cardstock:  two wheat die cuts from Harvest Dies (and scrap strips if you’d like)
    • Beauty of the Earth 12×12 DSP: scrap strips (mine range from 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick and 3 1/4″ to 4″ long) and 6″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)

    The Creating

    I placed the wheat die cut onto Bumblebee Cardstock and roughly cut around it with Paper Snips. I then placed the cardstock onto the Foam Adhesive Sheet and trimmed it to match (I pieced two foam pieces together longways to accommodate the length). I peeled the release paper on one side of the foam and applied it to the cardstock. I passed it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the wheat die, then flipped the clear part of the sandwich over (not disturbing the contents) and ran it through again, upside down. I find this ensures a clean cut through the thickness of the foam. I cut another wheat die from Bumblebee Cardstock without the adhesive.

    I dry fit the scrap strips of DSP on the card front to finalize placement and do any desired trimming. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front. I peeled the remaining release paper from the foam on the wheat die cut and placed it on the card front. I used Early Expresso Ink to stamp the sentiments from the A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set on the card front and the inside.

    I glued two DSP strips to the bottom edge of the inside of the card and then adhered the 2nd wheat die cut. I trimmed excess overhang from the bottom edge with the Paper Snips. I added a 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Trim bow with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (it fell in a recessed area) to embellish the card front. I adhered DSP to the Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tip: apply the glue to the flap) and trimmed the excess DSP with Paper Snips.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    • Pattern Play 12×12 Host Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel & inside strip) and 6″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope)

    The Creating

    I used Stampin’ Blends Markers in So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze to color in the larger leaves in the pattern. With the matching color ink pads plus Soft Suede, I used a Sponge Dauber (one for each color) dipped into the stamp pad ink to fill in the smaller leaves. This made it go super quick and added depth and texture.

    I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set onto the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Tuxedo Black Ink. I also added the inside greeting from the Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set.

    I used my Paper Trimmer to trim 1/4″ of the long edge of the colored DSP front panel to adhere along the bottom edge of the inside panel. I popped the Stitched Rectangle die cut up with Stampin’ Dimensional, with the other layers adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess DSP from the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope flap with my Paper Snips and also fussy cut a leaf from the excess colored DSP to embellish the inside panel. I added three adhesive-backed Matte Black Dots with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thank You Card

    I created this card with the Nature’s Harvest Bundle which includes the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set + the Harvest Dies from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock:  8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock:  4th smallest Stitched Rectangle die cut and 2 1/2″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting)
    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock:  largest Stitched So Sweetly die cut
    • Soft Suede Cardstock: two wheat die cuts from Harvest Dies.
    • 2020-22 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Assortment: 4″ x 5 1/4″ of Bumblebee

    The Creating

    I stamped the coneflower image from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, a Basic White Medium Envelope and the inside of the Basic White Thick card base. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends: Mango Melody, Old Olive and Soft Suede. I stamped the Thank You sentiment in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White Cardstock. I die cut the coneflower with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and fussy cut the sentiment with Paper Snips.

    I adhered the Stitched Rectangle die cut to the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and popped on the die cut coneflowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I applied the fussy cut sentiment with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I dry fit the decorated panel on the card front with the wheat die cuts (I decided to trim one stem off) and then adhered them into position. To embellish I added three adhesive-backed gold Metallic Pearls with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Fall Leaves Card

    I created this Fall card with a variety of stamp sets that you wouldn’t expect to go together…the leaves are from the Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set, the sentiments from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the Designer Series Paper is part of the Beauty of Friendship Collection, but they make a great card!  Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Early Expresso Cardstock:  8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” (card base)
    • Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper:  5 1/4” x 4” (front panel)
    • Basic White Cardstock:  3rd smallest Stitched Rectangle die cut,   2 1/2″ x 4″ (for stamping/punching) and 5 1/4” x 4” (inside panel)

    The Creating

    The leaves are Two-Step Stamping with a detail stamp (1st generation ink) and a fill stamp (2nd generation ink).  On Basic White Card, I stamped two Soft Suede leaves and one each of Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Cajun Craze.  I punched these out with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.

    I stamped a Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Soft Suede leaf on the inside panel and on the envelope.  I added the sentiment on the inside panel with Early Expresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Early Expresso Ink and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Timber Embossing Folder.

    The DSP and inside panels are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  The label and punched leaves are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Thank You Card

    I took my Kerry Blue Terrier, Keelan O’Shea, to the vet this week. I made this card for Dr. Harry because I appreciate all he does for us and I want him to know that two recommendations have had positive results for our fur baby. I used the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set and the Layered Circles Dies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The design was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest from Patsy Waggner at Stamps to Die For. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic Gray Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 3 of the 5th from smallest smooth circle die, 2 5/8″ x 5 1/2″ (front) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
    • Real Red Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
    • Basic Black Cardstock: 3 of the 5th from the smallest scallop circle die

    The Creating

    I stamped the 3 critters in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White circles and colored them with Stampin’ Blends: Soft Suede Light and Dark, Basic Black Light and Dark, Gray Granite Light and Dark, and Dark Real Red for the collar. I also added the back of the dog image to the inside panel and the envelope and colored as the one on the front. I also stamped the Thanks sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set on the inside panel.

    I adhered the stamped circles to the Basic Black scallop die cuts with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added the Real Red panel and the Basic White panel to the Basic Gray card base. I dry fit the circles and trimmed a little off the top edge of one and the bottom edge of another (cats) with my Paper Trimmer to line up with the card edges and adhered them with liquid glue. I popped the pup up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. He’s the star of the show! I adhered the inside panel and added 3 Matte Black Dots with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool to embellish the front.

    And here is my sweet fur baby, Keelan….
