A Fun Holiday Tag

It’s two days before Christmas and I’m just popping in with my first post of December!  I have been creating Christmas cards and 3D projects but just haven’t had the time to photograph them and write up the coordinating blog posts.  But when I saw the challenge at TGIF Challenges, I just had to enter..

While I really enjoy giving handmade/homemade gifts all year long, Christmas makes it just a little more fun.  Recently, I’ve discovered a few stamp companies with simply adorable sets that I just had to have.  And the one I used on this project has a special meaning for me….

Hello Bluebird Fall Friends Christmas Tag - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I work in an Elementary School library, so this cute, bookish reindeer stole my heart.  This set, called Fall Friends, is from a “new to me” stamp company called Hello Bluebird.  I’ve purchased several other adorable sets from this company that I can’t wait to create with.  This stamp was perfect to create tags for the homemade chocolate covered pretzels I gave to my co-workers at school.  It would also be a sweet tag or bookmark for Book Club members.

I colored this cutie with copic markers.  She’s layered on an oval and scalloped oval from SU Layering Oval framelits. I used some plaid patterned paper from my stash. I did stamp a message on the back, however, I forgot to photograph it.

My daughter, Emily and I had a good time making these pretzels last weekend and my grandson, Jack had a good time eating a few of the broken ones. Here he is surveying our progress!

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a very Happy Holiday shared with those you love.

So Thankful for You

Thanksgiving Card -Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I have a quick share of the Thanksgiving card I sent this year.  I branched out a bit and used products from a variety of stamp companies on this card.

I absolutely love this image from Power Poppy’s Fortunes of Fall stamp set.  This set has such wonderful images and sentiments, as well.  I’m still practicing my coloring and used Stampin’ Blends here.  There was a bit of bleeding that I’m trying to work on controlling.  A little Wink of Stella frosted the pumpkins.

After coloring the image, I used SU’s Stitched Shapes to cut it out and a scalloped oval from Layering Ovals. I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The pretty background paper is from Graphic 45…another favorite of mine for their beautiful and detailed papers.

The outside and inside sentiments are also from Power Poppy’s Fortunes of Fall.  The banner is from Lawn Fawn and is glued directly to the ovals.

As this card states, I am also thankful for all you who take time to look in on my projects and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and food!

Take care,

A Country Home Thanks

Stampin Up Country Home Thank You Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

Continuing Thanksgiving week with a few more thank you cards.  One of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog is Country Home.  I love everything about this set…the country feel of the images and the wonderful sentiments that accompany them.  This is a set that I will be using for a long time.

I wasn’t sure if I should use Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock on this card, so I tried them both.  As it turns out, I liked them equally as well.

Here’s the details… 

  • The card bases are Whisper White and Very Vanilla note cards.
  • The Whisper White card is then layered with a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock cut 1/8″ smaller.  The Very Vanilla card is layered with Highland Heather card stock.
  • The next layer on both cards is embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder…another favorite of mine from the Holiday Catalog.

  • These images were a lot of fun to color using Stampin’ Blends.  There are so many variations that you could come up with for these.  As a matter of fact, I’m still coloring some and have no idea what I’m going to do with them!

  • After coloring, I used my Scan & Cut to cut them out.
  • I stamped the little “thanks” label on Crumb Cake card stock and attached it with linen thread.
  • Each envelope is also embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder.

I am definitely going to be making more of these and creating some gift sets to give out.

At Home with You Thank You

Happy Monday! It’s so hard to believe that it’s Thanksgiving week already.  Where did the Fall go and why is there snow on the ground here in PA already?   Since we’ll be celebrating what we’re grateful for, I thought I would share a few thank you cards I made this week.

Stampin Up At Home With You Thank You Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

We recently moved to a new home in a different county.  I created this card to give to our neighbors who invited us to their home for dinner.  We had a lovely evening getting to know our new neighbors.

Stampin Up At Home With You Thank You Card -Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

Here’s the details…

  • The card base is a Whisper White Note Card.  These cards measure 5″ x 3 1/2″.
  • The next layer is Crumb Cake card stock cut 1/8″ smaller (4 7/8″ x 3 3/8″).
  • I adhered both layers together with temporary adhesive and then cut an oval using a die from the Layering Ovals Framelits.
  • Before permanently adhering both layers, I wrapped a piece of 1/8″ Grapefruit Grove grosgrain ribbon around the Crumb Cake card stock.
  • After these layers were attached, I cut a scalloped oval to frame the image and then added a sweet little bow.
  • The sentiment is from At Home with You.

  • The image, also from At Home with You was stamped on the inside of the card and colored with Stampin’ Blends on Whisper White card stock.  This game me enough room for a personal note of thanks.

  • In addition to embellishing the envelope flap with a Grapefruit Grove pattern from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 collection, I stamped the front with an appropriate sentiment from at the Hero Arts stamp set, Acts of Kindness.
  • I used a retired Crumb Cake note card envelope.
