Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop. Today I’m keeping it #SimpleStamping with the Snowman Season set. Though not used, there is the Snowman Builder Punch.

These cards were created as the growing popular slimline cards. The bases in Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight measure 8” x 9”, scoring the 8” side at 4”. This allows for a finished card of 4”x9” to fit in a standard #10 envelope. The white stamped layer was cut at 7 1/2” x 8”. 

On each card I enhanced with a little water coloring using the new Water Painters

The Santa hats were stamped using A Merry Hello Host set available in the August – December 2020 catalog for $10.00 with qualifying purchase.

Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop

The Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop is under way. Thanks for stopping by my very quick and simple post this month.

We are in stages of moving and I have been packing up my craft room. With limited supplies now available, I chose to do an alternative card using a couple scrap pieces and the stamp set from this month’s Paper Pumpkin.

? Daffodil Delight card base 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” scored at 4 1/2”

? Gorgeous Grape scrap

? Plaid Tidings scrap

? 2 1/4” Very Vanilla Circle 

? Stamped the hat in black memento

? Because The Paper Pumpkin stamp set is photopolymer, I was able to curve the sentiment to fit within my circle.

? Gentle swipes of Wink of Stella

Stamp It Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Fall Blog Hop.

I am pleased with how this faux tile like backsplash turned out using Love of Leaves stamp set. The card base is 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” in Crushed Curry, scored at 4 1/4”. The next layer is Blackberry Bliss 1/4” smaller all around at 4” x 5 1/4”.

Next is Very Vanilla cut 3 3/4” x 4”. Scoring left to right every 1/2”, rotate Very Vanilla 90° and repeat scoring every 1/2”. This will give you a reduced scale of what replicates a tiled backsplash. I stamped after scoring to create a separation in my stamped image for the illusion of grout lines. You could stamp first and then score if you wanted.


For the centered leaf, I used my Stampin’ Ink refills and the wet wipe technique. Using a few wet wipes folded in half, begin dropping various ink spots randomly yet so different colors touch. The wet wipe now becomes your ink pad. The sentiment is stamped using Versamark and Gold embossing powder.

Stamp It Patriotic – Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Patriotic Summer Blog Hop

In these ever changing times, I wanted to display the versatility of The Ornate Thanks Bundle applying a patriotic color scheme. You can find The Ornate Thanks Bundle along with all the supplies in today’s showcased card in my online store.

Starting first with a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White cut at 4 3/4″ x 5 1/4″. I taped a scrap piece of paper with Washi tape and began applying Pacific Point Blue with a sponge dauber. Starting lightly from the bottom working outward and upward with my Pacific Point Blue. I love the brightness of this blue. (I have to admit I intended for my color to be slightly lighter but I can be heavy handed sometimes) Then I began working downward and still outward using Real Red with a sponge dauber as well.

Next was die cutting a floral edge using a Ornate Border dies. Because the die cut can be delicate, I sometimes use a piece of Washi tape to hold my intricate dies in place. Once I peel the Washi tap off, it can be more forgiving and delicate, not tearing your paper.

 

As a result of building this card, I took photos to showcase the different steps and maybe the level of stamping you feel comfortable with. Honestly, even the beginner can create this fabulous card. For instance, my #simplestamping image blossomed into an awesome card for even the avid stamper.

Added to Basic Gray Cardstock cut 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”

Stamping the sentiment using So Grateful and for all you do

Next I have added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of all flowers

Taking it up I added the Metallic-Edge Ribbon in Silver

Because my ribbon frayed in the above image, it’s simply upgraded with a faux bow to cover
