Stampers By The Dozen November 2018 - Christmas

Happy weekend everyone! I am so excited it's finally here, it's almost Thanksgiving, and it's time for another hop with the Stampers By the Dozen!
With the holiday's in full swing this month's theme is all about Christmas!  I am so very excited about this weekend as we will be putting up our Christmas decorations!  Yes yes I know, Thanksgiving is still coming, but we will be out of the country for two weeks and I want to be able to enjoy them.

For my project, I wanted to focus on the Snow is Glistening stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase!  This set is perfect for all those Christmas crafts and I was excited to use the Christmas tree stamp in the set.
This traditional colored Christmas card is perfect for beginner stampers!  I started off with a Cherry Cobbler card stock base and layered with Shaded Spruce card stock.  Using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, I layered and added some ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.
I stamped the tree using Shaded Spruce card stock and hand cut the tree out.  The shape of the tree makes it very easy to free cut.  I stamped my sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and used the Detailed Trio Punch to round two of the corners on the sentiment piece.  To add a little bling to the top, I used the Gold Faceted Gems!

Stamp N Hop November 2018 - Casing the Annual Catalog

Friday is here, the weekend is coming, and it's time for another round of the Stamp N' Hop Blog Hop!

Our theme this month is all about casing the annual catalog.  For those that are unsure about what casing is, it is really spelled CASEing and it stands for Copy, and Share Everything.  CASEing is a great way for those who are new to stamping to get some ideas for creating projects.  Pinterest is a wonderful resource to get ideas for creating.  The number one thing with CASEing is to give credit to the person who originally created the project.

This month I chose the Abstract Impressions stamp set and this photo from the Annual Catalog.

While I love the original photo and the colors that were used, I definitely wanted to show how you can create the same card but use different colors and paper to get the same layout design.  I started with a Fresh Fig card stock base and layered using the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  
Next using Whisper White card stock, I stamped the flowers in Soft Seafoam, Mint Macaron, and Balmy Blue.  The sentiment is stamped in Fresh Fig and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  This is a perfect card for any beginner stamper and can be stepped up for those who want to add more embellishments!

Stampin' Friends Blog Hop November 2018 - Happy Holidays!

Happy Thursday everyone!  I am so very excited to participate again this month in the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!
Image may contain: text
With the holiday's being right around the corner, this month's theme is perfect!  While I will be traveling for both Thanksgiving next week but also Christmas, my crafting will be limited this holiday season but I am excited to share my project using the new Snow is Glistening stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase.  These items are around for a very limited until and can be purchased now until supplies last!
This stamp set is so easy to use and create repetitive stamping that no Stamparatus is needed!  I started with a Night of Navy card stock base and layered with a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the snowflakes first using Versamark ink and added white Embossing Powder to the ink and heat set to do the dry embossing technique.

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink as well as the falling snowflakes.  I cut them out with the Stitched Shapes die and added a final touch with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon which is probably my favorite ribbon in our catalog.
