Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Season

I used the Candy Cane Season stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog to create my card to share with you today.  I also used a little of the Santa’s Workshop Speciality DSP…that stuff is awesome!!  It doesn’t show well in the photos, but the white stripes on the smaller panel have flocking on them.  It adds such a cool texture!

My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 398.

I started by adhering a panel from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP (available Sept 5) to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered a strip of Santa’s Workshop DSP to a panel of Poppy Parade card stock and then to the larger panel with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to a Poppy Parade card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Champagne Foil Sheets with a die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies (available Sept 5) and then adhered it to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the candy cane images from the Candy Cane Season photopolymer stamp set (available Sept 5) in Poppy Parade ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then punched them out with the coordinating Candy Cane Builder Punch (available Sept 5).  I adhered the candy cane punches with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

I stamped the bow outline image from the Candy Cane Season stamp set in Garden Green ink twice on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I inked the solid bow image in Garden Green ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it over the lined image for both bows.  I punched the bows out with the Candy Cane Builder Punch and adhered them with Glue Dots to the candy canes.

I stamped the sentiment and candy cane heart image from the Candy Cane Season stamp set in Garden Green and Poppy Parade inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Making Christmas Bright for Fab Friday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Making Christmas Bright stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2018 Holiday Catalog to create my card for the Fab Friday color challenge this week.

Here are the colors for Fab Friday 144.  Hope that you’ll stop by the challenge blog to play along too!

I started by stamping the sentiments from the Making Christmas Bright photopolymer stamp set (available Sept 5) in Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then I used the fine-tip on my Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker and I drew a swirly line across the panel.

I stamped the base of the lightbulb images from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  Then I stamped the bulb images from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set in Poppy Parade, Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist and Calypso Coral inks on the Whisper White card stock panel.

I punched the images out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch (available Sept 5), adhered the pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front with Glue Dots.  I adhered the stamped panel to a larger panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL and then to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (available Sept 5) next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set in Call Me Clover ink and then added the circle image in Lemon Lime Twist ink (stamped on scrap paper once) to a Whisper White card stock panel on the inside of the card.
