Creative Inking Blog Hop: Christmas Cards!

Blog Hop Title

Welcome to this month's hop! Have you noticed that everyone seems to be starting Christmas early this year?! Lots of lights and Christmas trees already up in my neighborhood! So a Christmas Card themed hop seems appropriate. I have a fun card with a "non-traditional" color to share with you today that I like to call "I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas"!   I have a video and a free PDF tutorial for you so you can recreate this happy card!

Cherish The Season Bundle with Magenta Madness

Normally I would not have thought to use Magenta Madness on a Christmas card, but when I saw the sample on page 74 of the August - December Mini Catalog it really caught my eye and I had to give it a try! These gorgeous bells are from the Sounds of the Seasons Dies and they are stunning! The die set also has the little pine boughs in two sizes which I die cut in both Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. The greeting is from the coordinating stamp set, Cherish The Season. Of course, don't forget that you can get both the Sounds of the Season Dies and the Cherish The Season stamp set as a bundle for 10% off! 

Cherish The Season Bundle with Magenta Madness inside

The inside sentiment and pine bough stamp are also from the Cherish The Season stamp set. Of course, I had to add the little bell too! It's just so cute!

Cherish The Season Bundle with Magenta Madness close up

I embossed the panel behind the card with the Winter Snow embossing folder - I love the detail in that embossing folder! The bells were die cut from the Brushed Metallic Cardstock - I used the bronze color (the one that is slightly lighter in color then the gold). The Magenta Madness ribbon added the finishing touch!

 

Here is the video where I walk you through this fun card!

Lots of candy fits in this box - I used this cute caramel pumpkin treat - that is why I chose to fold down the front part of the box. Can't hide that cute pumpkin!

Maui Achievers Blog Hop October 2020: Arrange A Wreath Christmas Card

121173867_3341801939206151_4051025755110180166_o

Hello!  Today I'm joining in the monthly Trip Achievers Blog Hop so that I can share this gorgeous card with you! We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that have achieved the Stampin' Up!® Elite Maui trip. This hop gives us the opportunity to inspire you creatively - thanks for tuning in!!

Arrange A Wreath Poinsettia Christmas Wreath - 1

This bundle is SO fantastic! It is the Arrange A Wreath bundle and it includes the Arrange a Wreath Stamp Set and the Wreath Builders dies with 21 dies!! (See them all here.) It is super versatile and covers all seasons and holidays - and it is so fun!! You can decorate your wreath for birthdays, holidays, or seasons - let your creativity go wild!  I decided to go with Christmas and used the pretty flower die to build a poinsettia.  The gorgeous paper for the "door" that my wreath is hanging on comes from the huge pack of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper - which is on sale this month, yay!! For the greeting on the front I embossed with Gold Emboss Powder to pick up the gold foil paper in the center of the flower. I love Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, and Mossy Meadow together - so rich and vibrant!

Arrange A Wreath Poinsettia Christmas Wreath - 1

For the inside message I stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and used a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.

Cherry Cobbler 3/4" x 3 1/4" for sentiment

Cherry Cobbler two pieces 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" for flowers

Creative Inking Blog Hop: Falling In Love With Fall

Blog Hop Title

I love fall! The cooler temperatures, the gorgeous colors, the apple orchard, Panera Autumn Squash soup, all of it!!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Bundle

I have two cards to share today. This first card features the Beautiful Autumn Bundle which includes these adorable triple fall foliage punches including an oak leaf, an acorn, and a maple leaf. I used the pretty Brushed Metallic Card Stock to punch out the images. The Brushed Metallic card stock comes with 3 colors: Bronze (the stitched squares on this card), Copper (the oak leaves and the cap on the acorn), and gold. The brushed gold strip is embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. If you have not tried embossing on metallic foil paper - do it now!! Oh my goodness - stunning!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Bundle Inside

Inside the card I added a strip of the Gilded Autumn Paper for an accent.

I have a free PDF Tutorial for you on how to make this card. You can download it at this link. 
Love of Leaves in Gold and Mint
My second card is featuring the Love of Leaves bundle which I share last month too! I especially love the "I though of you today" sentiment in this set. One again I'm using the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper - love the gold accents in this pattern!

Here is another free PDF Tutorial for this lovely card at this link. Happy creating!
