Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Carols of Christmas with the Card Front Builder Die

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas and Card Front Builder Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  I missed our blog hop last week but I am sure glad to be back.  I am using the Carols of Christmas stamp set along with the Card Front Builder Dies for my share today.  I am in love with the tree die from this set, especially when your trees are cut from  sparkly fun  paper like Dazzling Diamonds.  I know that sometimes my camera does not pick up the sparkle but believe me, the trees look like they belong in the mountains all covered in snow.

Stampin’ Up! Winter Wonder and Merry Cafe Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, I just returned a few days ago from the Stampin’ Up! Convention and boy was it fun. We were able to cheer on all the wonderful demonstrators and sit and learn about the company.  The highlight for me was getting my hands on the new Spring Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalog. (I am squealing)  I will be sharing more about that later so on to our hop.  Today we had a color challenge.  The colors are beautiful and Stampin’ Up! has so many wonderful DSP papers that work great with the combination.  My problem is, I do not have any of the papers so I had to get creative.  Our color challenge was Pool Party, Emerald Envy and Red.  Enjoy the hop

The art piece:

With your Vintage Leaves stamp set,  stamp the leaves onto your Whisper White card stock

  • The large oak leaves are inked in Old Olive and  Lemon Lime Twist
  • The green filler is stamped in Garden Green using the leaf stamp from Jars of Love
  • They berries are stamped in Real Red using the dot stamp from Jars of Love
  • The splatters were added with Daffodil Delight ink using the star cluster stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set
  • When all the stamping was done I ran the art piece through the Big shot with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder

(I hope you can see the texture of the embossing folder, it really makes the card so beautiful, I am just not sure the photo captures it?)

The eclipse effect:

  • Run your  art piece through the big-shot with the Large Letter Dies spelling out “JOY”
  •  Attach the art piece to the Real Red mat
  • Adhere pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips to the back of you letters and place them in the silhouette from the cut out letter shape
  • The letter “O” had an extra piece from the center of the letter, attach that into the back of the silhouette shape with liquid glue

  • Die cut two snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons dies, one in real red and two in gold foil
  • Adhere the snowflakes  to the band of ribbon underneath the bow and one to the right of the letter Y
