Sweetly Stitched Candy Cane Season

Sweetly Stitched Candy Cane Season Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you caught yourself merrily humming or singing Christmas Carols yet this year?  There's so much cuteness in this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday, that I simply can't help myself.  The holiday tunes seem to spill right out of my mouth.  And today's sweet Christmas Card is no exception.  Just look at the adorable stitching and the yummy candy cane decked out in a bow!  I started my card with the Candy Cane Season Bundle and added finishing touches with the Sweetly Stitched Dies.

Then, I backed it all up with the adorable All is Bright Designer Paper.  The red, white and green bulbs inspired my color combination of Real Red and Call Me Clover.

 To add depth to the bow, I first stamped the outline using Call Me Clover ink, then I colored in the outline using my Light Call Me Clover Stampin' Blend.

Freshly Made Sketches

Today's card was inspired by another great card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Country Home Sympathy Card

Country Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Why are sympathy cards so hard to make?  Should they be sad or should they be cheerful?  Maybe we just over think it.  The important thing is to send a card and say that you care.  Today's Sympathy Card was made with the Country Home and the Better together stamp sets with just a hint of the Buffalo Check stamp set peeking from behind.


Country Home Stampin' Up!
I must say that I experienced immense pleasure every time, I color images from the Country Home stamp set.  Love the whole farmhouse feel.  I especially like the way my pitcher turned out.  I colored it with a mixture of Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends to give it a rusty, dusty look.  For the bouquet, I used Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Blackberry Bliss and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.  All Stampin' Blends are available here.
Country Home Stampin' Up!

For my sentiment, I stamped it with Versamark ink onto Vellum Card Stock and heat embossed it with Gold embossing Powder.  Then, I cut a second gold foil oval to highlight the gold.  The crisp white embossed background was accomplished with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  And I must say, the dynamic impression embossing folders really do leave quite an impression.  Just look at that lovely background!
