A Season of Thanks for the Pals Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Layer It Up”  – showcasing our favorite Designer Series Paper and embellishments.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up Gather Together Thanksgiving Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Although I have been making Christmas cards, I wanted to create a few more Thanksgiving cards to send out this year.  Thanksgiving has always been a big card giving and receiving holiday in my family and I’m happy to see that the trend is really catching on and not just among card makers.  For us, it’s alway been a way to send the ultimate “thank you” to our friends and family.

My card today is “layered up” with my favorite DSP: the gingham pattern in the 6 x 6 DSP collections.  While I like each and every color, this card features Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler from the Regals and Neutrals collection.  I used the Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes dies to create the colored boxes and just spaced them as evenly as I could on the 5 x 5 Very Vanilla thick card base.

Next I created an array of Fall leaves, sprigs and branches from a variety of dies.  The large leaves are from the Gathered Leaves dies.

The sentiment, from the Gather Together stamp set is stamped in Cajun Craze ink and cut with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Stampin’ Dimensionals give it a little “lift”.

The inside sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set and the leaf is from the Gather Together stamp set.  I stamped off once with Crumb Cake ink on the leaf stamp to mute it a bit so that the sentiment was crisper.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 11th, for our Retirement Fun Fold Party when our Design Team showcase projects using retiring products from the Holiday Catalog with a fun fold card. Don’t miss the fun!

Christmastime is (almost) Here!

I’m back today with another card idea using the upcoming Christmastime is Here Suite.  I posted THIS card from the same suite on Monday.

Today’s card features another hand snipped images from a pattern in the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper.  This paper alone could make so many beautiful cards.

  • I started with a Whisper White thick card stock card base and added a panel of Cherry Cobbler that was embossed with the Tufted 3D embossing folder.
  • Next I cut a piece of Gold Foil with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels and popped it on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The hand cut Rose image was glued directly to the gold foil.

  • The sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set is stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink and cut with a coordinating die from the Christmas Cardinal dies.  This is also popped with dimensionals.

  • Using the same Toile Christmas stamp set, I stamped two different sentiments in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I think the fonts in this set are just beautiful.

  • Lastly, I embossed another piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock with the Tufted 3D embossing folder and added it to the envelope flap for a little hint of what’s inside.

I hope you enjoyed the two cards I’ve posted created with the Christmastime is Here Suite.  Ordering for this suite begins on Friday, November 1st and is only while supplies last.  I’ll certainly be posting more examples using products from this suite as I think they make for some very elegant cards that do not necessarily need to be just holiday cards.

Christmastime is Here!

Hello and happy halloween week!  It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of October.  So I guess it’s time to start creating more Christmas cards.  This week I’ll be spotlighting products from the new Christmastime is Here Suite.  This suite will be available to order beginning November and will only be available while supplies last.

For my card today, I used the beautiful Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper collection is so elegant looking and makes it very easy to create beautiful holiday cards.  Here’s a look at the patterns…

The focal point of this card is the beautiful rose spray which I hand snipped from a pattern in the DSP.  I mounted it on the background pattern with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, although I think I may have added a few too many…oops!

For the inside sentiment, I reached for a Christmas set in the Annual Catalog, Dashing Deer.  The sets in the Holiday Catalog are terrific but sometimes I forget that there are equally good holiday sets in the Annual Catalog.  This one was one of my favorites from last year.

Even with using limited products from the Christmastime is Here suite, I was able to create a pretty Holiday card.

Mosaic Mood All-Occasion Cards

Stampin Up Mosiac Mood All Occasion Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinupToday I’m sharing a set of cards created with the Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper and the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards.  The twelve cards are blank but beautifully intricate to allow for any kind of embellishing. They also come with pretty scalloped envelopes and a pretty tin that would make an ideal gift set.

Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards & Tin

I stamped each sentiment on various dies and hand cut the images from a few patterns from Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper.  I’ve listed all the products I used at the end of this post.  I created two of each card and packaged them in the tin.  I still had four cards left over and have some ideas for them.

Here are each of the cards…

Stampin Up Mosiac Mood All Occasion Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern stampinupBirthday:  I used a retired stamp set for the sentiment and another die from Stitched Label dies.

I think these cards look so pretty with all the intricate detail of the Bird Ballad Laser cards.  No one would ever suspect how easy they are to create!
