Stampin' Up! Lights Aglow Tealight Christmas

Welcome to Fun Fold Friday, peeps! Are you looking forward to the weekend? I am...I have three parties to attend...woo hoo! None of them will be serving alcohol...but maybe tea? So, I made this tealight card for one of the recipients.

It's a CASE of The Stamping Ninja. Thank you, Melissa, for such great instructions! I will share them here with my viewers.

I used my Dark Cherry Cobbler alcohol marker (a/k/a SU Blends) to color three Pearl Basic Jewels. I also used ribbon from the retired Boho Indigo Kit (AC '20-'21), but other than that I followed Melissa to a T. I made six of them! The others used Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent colors, with different patterns of Designer Series Paper from Lights Aglow.  The Brightest Glow Stamp Set and Labels Aglow Dies can be purchased as a bundle. By doing that, you get 10% off!

If I make another one, I will die cut the little snowflakes too to provide more light through the front. Measurements and product follow. I couldn't get a good photo of it with the tealight glowing...sorry! I'm still entering it in the Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge SOS484 - Shine Bright Like a Diamond. Thanks for that earworm SOS! Because it's a Christmas present for each of the ladies in my card group, I'm entering it in the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #660 - Christmas Present.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a blessed weekend. I know I will!

Stampin' Up! Regal Reindeer Christmas Card

Today I've used the Regal Reindeer Bundle to create my card for our Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop and for my first week as Guest Chick for the Krafty Chicks Challenge. I am honored to be chosen to do that for the month of December. It's a weekly challenge with this week's challenge Leanne is hosting #640 Stamp Act (must have a stamp/digi image on card/project) and it fits perfectly with the HIT theme challenge for this week.

My card base is Soft Succulent  cardstock with a mat of Poppy Parade cardstock. I took a panel of  Evening Evergreen and stamped it with the snow stamps from the Regal Reindeer Stamp Set using White Craft ink. I adhered that to the mat.

Next I stamped the trees in Soft Succulent, reindeer in Soft Suede and the little girl in Smoky Slate on scrap Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out, along with the snowbanks, with the Reindeer Dies. Then I colored the little girl and reindeer with assorted Light & Dark Stampin' Blends.

I adhered the trees to the front with liquid glue, then adhered the snowbanks. The girl and deer are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sentiment was in my stash from another project so I just fussy cut around it and added a Distressed Gold Specialty Paper and three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the tree tops.

For the inside...

I stamped the bunny in Basic Gray (I need to reink my stamp pad!) and the sentiment in Soft Succulent. I punched three of the corners with the Very Best Trio Punch. I do believe I used all the stamps from this set with the exception of one!

Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Akiko. Clicking on the names listed below will take you directly to team members and their projects.  I hope you enjoy all the creativity. (Note: There is a time difference between the two challenges. So, depending on what time you are visiting my blog, the HIT hop does not go live until 9 AM! The Chicks went live at 2 AM!! I hope you'll pay them a visit and enter a card.) Thank you for stopping by!

Christmas Cardinals

Good mid-week morning, my peeps. Hope all is going well with your week so far.

I am grateful for the new followers I have gained this week. One of those followers has helped me experiment with digital designs. I won a challenge at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and the prize was a gift voucher for Jan's Digital Stamps.  I used the cardinal scene because they say cardinals are angels AND they are my favorite bird next to the Eagle. Take a look see...

I'm entering my card in these three challenges:

Jingle Belles Banner Holiday Challenge - I was inspired by the traditional red and green colors (Garden Green Cardstock and Real Red Cardstock from Stampin' Up!); Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2248; and The 12 Months of Christmas ATG #94.

I am looking forward to using the other digitals that I picked for my win. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by. If you aren't a follower yet, I hope you will become one and also subscribe so you will know when I post.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings Meets Magnolia Lane Memories & More Thank You Card

My card today is quick and easy IF you still have the Magnolia Lane M & M pack!

All I did was stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow on one of the cards from the pack and adhered it to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Et voila, fini!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Stampin' Up! Go to Greetings Stack, Cut & Shuffle Card

Welcome to my Monday Makeover Madness...its' been awhile! In cleaning up my craft room, I came across 4 panels from the S, C & S Technique so I put it together, et voila! It's a makeover of this one.

I truly miss the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper and the stamp set that went with it. It makes me happy to see another card made with it.

Thank you for stopping by today. It's been awhile since I've offered you M & M's so here you go!

Stampin' Up! Ornamental Pine Christmas Card

Blessed Sunday, peeps! I am finally catching up on all the cards we made in our card group. Today's is a kit Debbie had for us and it's a CASE of Dawn Griffith using the retired Ornamental Pine Stamp Set. Since Dawn explains it wonderfully in her video, I won't! To say I love this card would be an understatement...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Thank you Dawn and Debbie!! (Dawn gave credit to the originator, Cynthia Millan!)

Believe it or not, the card base is Shaded Spruce. It looks like Early Espresso in the photo but it's not! Then there's a mat of Crumb Cake. Next is the Very Vanilla and Dawn will show you how to finish it off! I finished mine differently by sponging the entire art panel with browns and greens. I didn't add snow to the pine cones with a white gel pen like Dawn did.

The inside is a sentiment from the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set. Oh, how I wish it weren't retired!

I'm entering my card at the ABC Christmas Challenge: W and/or X - W=White, X=Xtra Special. I think my card is Xtra special because of the vintage look, sponging, and the sparkle of the heat embossing.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are having a great weekend.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Asian Thank You Card

Happy Saturday, peeps! Today's card is another that we made at our card group. Barb provided the kit so I have no idea what the papers are but I do know the stamp set we used was the retired Artistically Asian set. I'm not sure about the "Thank You", but you could use any stamp you have.

We used Stamp N Write Markers to color the image on the stamp and "huffing" on it to moisten the ink. Our colors were Old Olive, Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape.

I'm entering my card in the sketch challenge at Global Design Project #370.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a great weekend and that you aren't still stuffed from Turkey Day!
