Good morning everyone! Today is another Buffy, Jackie and Susan Stamp Off Challenge. This time our challenge has to be something to do with sunshine. Of course whenever I hear the word sunshine I automatically start singing “you are my sunshine, my only sunshine” 🎶 That is because it is one of Madelyn’s favorite songs! Now I just wish I would see some of that elusive sunshine soon!
I decided to go with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the matching dies called Sunshine Wishes. I also used the stamp set Merry Christmas To All which has the words “Wishing” and “You” in it and the Dog Builder Punch that is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog for the little heart that dots my “i”.
To make this card, I first cut out three sets of the flowers in Mango Melody. I cut off the stems and then layered them together on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I punched out the flower center using my 1″ Circle Punch and then ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. I cut out the butterfly in Poppy Parade card stock and the word sunshine in Basic Black. I embossed all the words by stamping them in Versamark and then using White Embossing Powder with my Heat Tool. All of this is layering on top of a card base of Poppy Parade.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made. I am sure their creations will make me happy while skies are gray!
I forgot to show the third card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting in November. We made it using products from the All Is Bright Suite in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is called Merry Christmas To All. It has a ton of different sentiments that all go with each other plus a label and some swishes. Of course, they are matching dies called Merry Christmas Thinlits dies that have big sentiments (which you all know I love).
To make this I first cut out the “Merry” using the Thinlits from the Galvanized Metallic Paper and adhered it to an oval cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in Whisper White cardstock. Then I stamped the word Christmas onto Real Red cardstock with Versamark and embossed it using Stampin’ Emboss Powder in White and heating it with the Heat Tool. The Merry Christmas Thinlits have a die that cut out the sentiment. The Designer Series Paper is called Under The Mistletoe and is in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog. Lastly I cut out two sprigs using the Sprig Punch and adhered them underneath the sentiment. The card base is Old Olive cardstock.
Last Thursday I showed you a card I made using the new Blizzard Thinlits Die that is in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Today I made a card using all those snowflakes that this die cut out. Yes, one die cuts out all those snowflakes and more. I didn’t even use them all on this card.
I decided to make this card with a little bling. I haven’t used bling in a while. You kind of have to do it when making Christmas cards because Christmas is so full of bling. After adhering the snowflakes onto the cardstock I put a rhinestone in the middle of each one.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Merry Christmas to All. I first stamped it in Versamark and then used Silver Embossing Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool. I then backed the piece of cardstock to Silver Foil Paper before adhering that to the Night Of Navy card base.
Hello everyone! Today is another day for a BS & J Productions Stamp Off Challenge. This week we have a sketch challenge.
Here is my card:
I decided to use new products from the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. There are actually three new products on this card. The first is the Poinsettia. This was made using the new Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits Dies. I love how the flower is made up of two different dies. One is the outline die which I cut out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the other is the detail on the Poinsettia which is in Whisper White. Then I just adhered them on top of each other using Mulitpurpose Glue.
The sentiment is from the new stamp set called Merry Christmas To All. This stamp set has matching dies which I just adore called Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. I didn’t use them on this card but if you buy the stamp set and the dies in a Bundle you can save 10%. I stamped this greeting in Shaded Spruce.
Last but not least is the Designer Series Paper I used. This is also in the Holiday Catalog and is called Festive Farmhouse. It is full of different plaids and stripes.
Now let’s go see whatBuffy and Jackie made. I am sure we will love what they do!
Now that I have all the birthdays taken care of for a little bit, it is time to concentrate on the amazing 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog that began September 1st. There are so many fabulous products in this catalog that it was hard to choose which ones to get first and then choose which one to show first.
I decided to go with the Blizzard Thinlits Die. This die has a matching stamp set (usually I am talking about these Bundles the other way around – stamp set first, then die) called Beautiful Blizzard. I did not use the stamp set on this card but I did use the die. The Blizzard Thinlits Die is one big die that cuts out a background of snowflakes. I used it on Night Of Navy cardstock and then adhered it to a Balmy Blue card base. The die looks like this:
The sentiments are from another new Bundle that is in the Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is called Merry Christmas To All and has all the words you could ever want for a Holiday Card. The matching Dies are called Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. It has four large words you can cut out as well as two label dies.
After cutting out all those snowflakes with one die I bet you are wondering what I did with them all. Tune in on Monday to find out!
